Did you know that David Alan Grier was the voice of the Oscars?

Last Sunday was the Oscars, and did you know there was a familiar person who was the voice of the night?

On Friday, when David Alan Grier was on Live with Kelly and Mark, Kelly Ripa wanted to know if it was true that it was his voice that we heard at the Academy Awards. And yes, it was.

His longtime friend, Jimmy Kimmel, who hosted Hollywood’s biggest night, asked him to do it. And DAG wanted to know how many tickets he would get.

Well, I guess he got enough because he spent the night in the trailer reading names and information about how many Oscars they have won and/or how many nominations the winner got as they were told to come on down. Wait, that is a different show with a different voice.

Did you recognize Grier’s voice? I didn’t.


Liza Koshy made quite the entrance at the Oscars red carpet!

Liza Koshy showed up early to the Oscars in a scarlet-red Marchesa gown and massive platform heels. She learned quickly that she had made a mistake wearing those shoes.

That is because the actress fell on her butt as she was posing for the photographers during the first section of the press.

She didn’t let it keep her down. So, she got up with some help and continued to be photographed as though nothing had happened.

And because of that, she has my full respect.


Watch John Cena’s quick change during the Oscars

Yesterday, during the Oscars, one of the biggest highlights from the shindig was when John Cena presented the costume category wearing just sandals and the envelope that announced the winner.

However, between the nominees being read and the winner being announced, someone put a curtain on Peacemaker. But we didn’t know how.

Now we do because Vulture shared a video of the quick costume change as the costume noms were being shown. And that is how they did it.

For those of you who were wondering if he was truly naked on the stage, he was not. He was wearing a loin cloth, just in case.

Ryan Gossling responds to the Oscars snubbing Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig

Today, AMPAS announced this year’s Oscar nominations, and the snubs were more shocking than who was nominated.

Barbie found itself nominated for Best Motion Picture of the Year, and Ryan Gosling is up for Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for playing Ken.

Yet, Margot Robbie, who played the title character, and Greta Gerwig, who directed the Oscar-nominated film, were not on the list. Therefore, people were shocked and dismayed.

However, no one more than Gosling. So, he released a statement about them being ignored.

I am extremely honored to be nominated by my colleagues alongside such remarkable artists in a year of so many great films. And I never thought I’d being saying this, but I’m also incredibly honored and proud that it’s for portraying a plastic doll named Ken.

But there is no Ken without Barbie, and there is no Barbie movie without Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, the two people most responsible for this history-making, globally celebrated film.

No recognition would be possible for anyone on the film without their talent, grit and genius.

To say that I’m disappointed that they are not nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement.

Against all odds with nothing but a couple of soulless, scantily clad, and thankfully crotchless dolls, they made us laugh, they broke our hearts, they pushed the culture and they made history. Their work should be recognized along with the other very deserving nominees.

Having said that, I am so happy for America Ferrera and the other incredible artists who contributed their talents to making this such a groundbreaking film.”

What do you think of the Academy doing a Ken to Barbie?

The Oscars air March 10th on ABC.

Are you sick of trying your hardest to stay up to watch the entire Oscar telecast to see who won Best Picture, La La Land or Moonlight? Well, this year, that won’t be a problem.

That is because ABC and AMPAS announced that the Movie’s Biggest Night is going to start at 7p EDT, instead of 8p. And they say it will end by 10:30p because we are going to get a special episode of Abbott Elementary.

Just like Tom Cruise and Sylvester Stallone, who grew up dreaming of winning an Oscar someday, that 10:30p end time is never going to happen.

Jimmy Kimmel will host the Academy Awards on March 10th.
