The Oscars Were A TRAIN-wreck

brie-larsen

But in the best way.

Everybody’s wearing their TRAINING dresses…and they look fabulous. From Kerry Washington to Charlize Theron to Jennifer Lawrence to Brie Larson to Rachel McAdams, trains are the thing at this award ceremony, and not just cause it’s classic Hollywood and sexy as hell.

No, trains are good for tripping hot Michael Fassbenders and hiding an extra gift bag, but they make these actresses look BOSS.

Tell us which train you like best in the comments below!

Jada Pinkett Smith Addresses Aunt Viv DIS!

The 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Los Angeles

Jada Pinkett Smith is back in action!

After actively announcing her boycott of the Oscars due to lack of diversity, former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Janet Hubert had a snide retort, calling Smith’s actions “suspect.”

“I find it ironic that somebody who has made their living, and made millions and millions of dollars from the very people you’re talking about boycotting just because you didn’t get a nomination, just because you didn’t win,” Hubert, who played Aunt Vivian on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, said. “That is not the way life works, baby.”

Now, Smith is calmly addressing her comments:

“Considering that Alabama had its highest recruitment for the KKK for Martin Luther King’s birthday, I hope that we as African-Americans can find a way to get along and step together,” Smith says. According to the New York Daily News, a Ku Klux Klan chapter distributed recruitment flyers to residents in Mobile, Alabama, over the MLK holiday weekend.

“This whole Oscar controversy isn’t really about the Oscars,” she adds. “Really, in my plea to ask all communities and people of color to take back our power is so that we can use it in all sectors of our community, and right now, specifically with African-American people, we have some very serious issues that I think we as a people have to move together on. I’m hoping we can find ways to step together in this instead of finding ways to fight each other. I got love for everybody.”

Woah. Who do YOU side with? Pinkett Smith or Hubert? Both have legit arguments, in my humble opinion, but I think every little bit of action for diversification is important.

Jada Pinkett Smith Is Pissed Will Wasn’t Nominated.

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith to divorce?

And she’s speaking out!

Now, I think we’re all pretty disappointed at how whitewashed the Oscar Noms Noms were this year, but Jada Pinkett Smith is particularly irate, basically publicly coming out to boycott the Oscars for her husband Will Smith‘s lack of recognition.

Will was overlooked by the Academy for his performance in “Concussion,” and Jada said via her Facebook:

“Maybe it’s time we pull back our resources and we put them back into our communities, and we make programs for ourselves that acknowledge us in ways that we see fit, that are just as good as the so-called mainstream.”

Jada suggested, “We can no longer beg for the love, acknowledgement or respect of any group.”

Don’t expect to see her at the Oscars, y’all.

Check out her video HERE! Do you think she’s having an appropriate reaction for Will’s Oscar snub? WEIGH IN BELOW!
