There Was A Fancy Masquerade Ball For Dogs And It Did Not Disappoint





There were no fashion faux paws here.


Some of Washington, D.C.’s most dapper dogs strutted their stuff for the 30th Annual Bark Ball on Saturday night while raising money for a local animal welfare organization (and taking the doggone cutest pictures).


The black-tie gala, which benefited the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA), featured a masquerade theme that allowed guests to bring their canine companions as their dinner dates.






Not a group to disappoint, the dogs were seen wearing their finest coats — as well as adorable bow ties, tutus, hats and at least one mask.


Insider photos posted to social media showed guests of all shapes, sizes, and breeds.






By the end of the night, an event spokesperson, reached by HuffPost, boasted that they had raised more than $700,000. They also received a record-breaking 1,200 guests, which included former Sens. Bob (R-Kan.) and Elizabeth Dole (R-N.C.).


That money raised will go towards helping “protect animals, support families, and advocate for positive change to create a world where all animals can thrive,” the animal welfare group said.


I guess humans know how to throw a good ball after all.

Fanny Packs Are Back, And There's Nothing You Can Do About It

According to Hollywood stars, the hottest accessory on the market is a fanny pack. Yes, really. 


Practical and stylish, the coolness factor of the bag has risen over the past few years. Kendall Jenner and rapper A$AP Rocky love them, Leonardo DiCaprio sported one on a trip to Thailand, Sofia Richie wears hers hiking and Kourtney Kardashian has a few Chanel versions herself. 









Wearing a fanny pack is still quite the statement (outside of wearing it at a music festival), but it’s a statement worth making. Luckily, there are lots of different styles within everyone’s price point to give this bag a go. 


Take a look at our favorite choices below (if you’re looking for the more stylish versions, notice they’re often called “belt bags” instead of fanny packs):

Jimmy Kimmel Will Return To 'Screw Up' The Oscars Again






And the 2018 Academy Award hosting gig goes to ... “La La Land” ... er ... we mean ... Jimmy Kimmel


Kimmel’s first time hosting the Academy Awards was unforgettable for all the wrong reasons. As the night came to a close, “La La Land” was announced as the Best Picture winner before the real recipient, “Moonlight,” could be revealed after an envelope mix-up.


Confusion, jubilation and memes ensued ...







But Kimmel will return to host the 90th Academy Awards in March, with producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd also returning.


“If you think we screwed up the ending this year, wait until you see what we have planned for the 90th anniversary show!” Kimmel joked in a statement. 






He added over Twitter: “Assuming I opened the right envelope.”






Elsewhere in his statement, Kimmel thanked the Academy for the opportunity, “Hosting the Oscars was a highlight of my career and I am grateful to Cheryl, [Academy CEO Dawn Hudson], and the Academy for asking me to return to work with two of my favorite people, Mike De Luca and Jennifer Todd.”


The host didn’t have anything to do with the Best Picture mix-up, but no doubt it’ll be a big topic for jokes when the show comes around. Another big topic will likely be Donald Trump, whom Kimmel called out multiple times during the 89th annual show, suggesting the 90th should be even more yuuuge.







 The 90th Academy Awards will air Sunday, March 4, 2018, on ABC.

Ellen Enlists Bradley Cooper To Defeat That Chicken Nugget Kid On Twitter




Everyone please turn you attention to this pressing global crisis that demands your immediate assistance: Ellen DeGeneres’ Twitter game.


Yes, the queen of daytime needs your help to keep the title of the most retweeted tweet of all time, aka that selfie from the 2014 Academy Awards, and ward off her competition. 


Earlier this week, high school student Carter Wilkerson edged closer to closing the gap between himself and DeGeneres after his tweet to score a year of free Wendy’s chicken nuggets received 2.8 million and counting retweets. 


DeGeneres is still ahead by a couple hundred thousand, but enlisted the help of Bradley Cooper, who took the famous Oscar selfie, to encourage her fans to show her some more Twitter love. 


“If you think I’m going to lose that record to some chicken nugget kid, you are out of your cluckin’ mind,” she said on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Friday, later adding in her and Cooper’s PSA, “I was sitting on Meryl Streep’s lap for an uncomfortably long time.”


Choose your side and retweet below.

That Chicken Nugget Tweet Is On Course To Become The Most Retweeted Of All Time






One teen’s insatiable appetite for chicken nuggets is about to break a big record.


A tweet that Carter Wilkerson posted online last Wednesday night is on course to overtake Ellen DeGeneres’ famous Oscars selfie as the most retweeted ever.


The 16-year-old’s post has been shared on the micro-blogging service more than 2.4 million times ― though the figure falls short of the 18 million retweets that fast-food chain Wendy’s challenged him to achieve when he asked how many he’d need to win a year of free chicken nuggets.






But it’s fast creeping up on the 3.2 million retweets (and counting) achieved by the 2014 Oscars selfie DeGeneres orchestrated ― featuring stars including Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong’o,Meryl Streep, Kevin Spacey and Channing Tatum.






If Wilkerson’s Twitter post continues to rack up an average of 400,000 retweets per day, then he could smash that record by Thursday.


Before DeGeneres’ star-studded post, the most retweeted was former President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election celebration. That has been retweeted more than 940,000 times.

Ryan Gosling Laughed During Oscars Mix-Up Because He'd Thought Someone Had Been Hurt






Like a high schooler tickled by a moment of mayhem in his solemnly scheduled day, Ryan Gosling seemingly couldn’t help but let out a giggle in the chaos onstage as the Oscar winner for Best Picture was announced last month.


An Associated Press photographer captured the “La La Land” actor’s reaction upon learning “Moonlight” had actually won the top honor after he and his colleagues had already taken the stage in an image that was, of course, shared widely on the internet.


But now we know Gosling hadn’t just thought the whole situation was absurdly funny ― he’d thought someone might’ve been hurt.


And realizing that wasn’t the case, that someone had simply made a very public blunder, the actor felt relieved.


So he laughed.






Gosling explained his reaction at Las Vegas’ Adobe Summit on Wednesday, per Entertainment Weekly.


“What really was happening as I was watching ― it was surreal, anyway ― I was watching people start to have this panicked reaction in the crowd and guys were coming on with headsets, and I felt like someone had been hurt,” he explained, as reported by the outlet.


“I thought there was some kind of medical situation, and I had this worst-case scenario playing out in my head. And then I just heard ‘Moonlight’ won, and I was so relieved that I started laughing.”


Although their film didn’t take home Best Picture, “La La Land” actors Gosling and Emma Stone wholeheartedly congratulated the “Moonlight” team for their win. Calling it “such a groundbreaking film” at the Las Vegas event, Gosling said he was “so thrilled” the film had been honored. Stone previously heaped praise of her own onto “Moonlight,” after the incident onstage.


Earlier this month, Variety reported that the pair of PricewaterhouseCoopers accountants responsible for the mix-up would not be involved in future Oscars ceremonies. It seems the Academy is taking every precaution to ensure next year’s event goes off without a hitch ― although hopefully not without memes.

Jimmy Kimmel’s Casual Racist Jokes At Oscars Detracted From Diversity Wins






Jimmy Kimmel kicked off the Oscars Sunday night with a joke that perfectly skewered the Trump administration’s treatment of minority groups, and it was met with rapturous applause. 


“I want to thank President Trump,” Kimmel quipped. “I mean, remember last year when it seemed like the Oscars were racist?” 


As political jokes go, Kimmel succeeded in lampooning the problematic systemic treatment of marginalized communities. And he should have stuck with that formula. Instead, his jokes ended up lampooning the marginalized communities themselves



Against a backdrop of industry diversity wins, the trappings of inculcated nativism behind Kimmel’s jokes felt painfully obvious.



On Twitter, viewers called Kimmel out on some major uncomfortable instances that made ethnic groups feel “othered,” or that they don’t belong. Against a backdrop of industry diversity wins, the trappings of inculcated nativism behind Kimmel’s jokes felt painfully obvious. 


Sunday’s awards show saw the most diverse group of recipients in Oscars history. A record number of black stars won. The world celebrated the achievements of “Moonlight.” And the speeches were politically charged, with actors and directors speaking in favor of differences and against divisive walls.  


But then Kimmel used Mahershala Ali’s name as the butt of two different jokes.


Kimmel made a comment about the Best Supporting Actor award recipient’s newborn daughter’s name, saying that with a name like Mahershala, “You can’t name her Amy.”


Ali is the first Muslim actor to win an Oscar. He adheres to Ahmadiyya, a sect of Islam that has been historically persecuted. So, he could probably have done without Kimmel’s jokes designating him as different, as people on Twitter pointed out. 






Kimmel also highlighted Ali’s name when he asked the audience to yell out “Mahershala” during the tour bus skit.


Kimmel also made fun of Asian names during the same skit. When an Asian woman in the tour group told Kimmel her name was Yulree, he turned the joke on her. When Yulree’s husband stated right after that his name was Patrick, Kimmel said: “See, that’s a name.”






In another moment that had some viewers shaking their heads, Kimmel lifted up “Lion” star Sunny Pawar, channeling the iconic “Lion King” scene in which Simba is held up over a cliff. It felt utterly well-intentioned, and the 8-year-old’s reaction even tugged at the heartstrings. 


But as some viewers pointed out, the image of Kimmel, a white host, holding up a brown child who doesn’t speak English as a prop in a skit with African music playing has racial undertones that are impossible to ignore. 






These instances of cultural insensitivity were reminiscent of last year’s awards when racist jokes against Asians played out on the Oscars stage. The Academy apologized after the fact. 


It seems that instead of reactive apologies, there’s a more proactive solution: More diversity is needed behind the scenes and among show stakeholders. Hollywood will hopefully continue to give us even more reasons to celebrate diversity at awards shows in the future. The last thing we need is for the shows themselves to detract from that in the future.


So in other words, no more recaps like this, please:

Trump: Oscar Mix-Up Happened Because The Focus Was On Attacking Me






Donald Trump has an explanation for Sunday night’s Oscar flub that is straight out of la la land.


The president claims the organizers spent too much time focusing on attacking him rather than working on getting the details of the show right.


“I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn’t get the act together at the end,” Trump told Breitbart News. “It was a little sad. It took away from the glamour of the Oscars. It didn’t feel like a very glamorous evening. I’ve been to the Oscars. There was something very special missing, and then to end that way was sad.”


Some of host Jimmy Kimmel’s jokes that hit the president hardest include: 



“This broadcast is being watched live by millions of Americans and around the world in more than 225 countries that now hate us.”



And this one: 



“I want to say thank you to President Trump. I mean, remember last year when it seemed like the Oscars were racist? That’s gone. Thanks to him.”



And, yeah, this too: 



“Some of you will get to come up here on this stage tonight and give a speech that the president of the United States will tweet about in ALL CAPS during his 5 a.m. bowel movement tomorrow, and I think that’s pretty darn excellent, if you ask me.”



Despite Trump’s alternative facts, the accounting firm of

, which tallies the Oscar ballots and holds the envelopes backstage, is taking full blame for last night’s shocking Oscar ending, in which “La La Land” was initially announced as best picture winner rather than “Moonlight.” It issued this statement to The Hollywood Reporter:
