TERESA'S TABLOID TRASH 3/3/14
by Teresa Maxwell,posted Mar 3 2014 9:39AM
The outer space thriller "Gravity" is flying high after Sunday's 86th Academy Awards. The film picked up seven awards, dominating the behind-the-scenes categories. While it grabbed trophies for Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects, its most high-profile award was Best Director for Alfonso Cuaron. "Gravity" may have won the trophy count, but it came up short for the night's most important award -- Best Picture. That honor went to the emotionally charged film "12 Years a Slave."
"Dallas Buyers Club" also had a strong showing coming up with three awards, including Matthew McConaughey for Best Actor and Jared Leto for Best Supporting Actor.
Cate Blanchett won the award for Best Actress for "Blue Jasmine" and Lupita Nyong'o won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her work in "12 Years a Slave.”
Ellen DeGeneres included some up-to-the-minute humor in opening the ABC TV event, with a monologue featuring comments about Southern California's rainy weather and a promise that she wouldn't embarrass nominee Jennifer Lawrence about her difficulties arriving at the ceremony. She joked about nominee June Squibb's age, teased Liza Minnelli as "one of the most amazing Liza Minnelli impersonators" she's ever seen, and after commenting on how a number of the women looked, proclaimed "Dallas Buyers Club" star Jared Leto "the prettiest."
Following the monologue Ellen split her time between the audience and the stage. While she didn't dance up and down the aisles, she ordered -- and distributed -- pizzas to the stars. She later took up a collection to pay the delivery guy, getting contributions from Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, John Travolta, and others. Ellen also used her position as host to make Twitter history. Her selfie with Meryl Streep grew into an all-star photo, which she said she hoped would become the most re-tweeted picture ever. Toward the end of the event she announced that they'd met their goal -- and crashed Twitter in the process.
DeGeneres marked her second time as an Oscar host at the 86th Academy Awards, which took place in Hollywood on Sunday.
Win or lose Oscar night, presenters and participants are walking away with thousands of dollars worth of swag.

Those who participated in the 2013 ceremony walked away with just 55-thousand-dollars in goods.
In other celebrity news:
Chris Brown's anger issues reportedly stem from bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. In court documents obtained by TMZ.com, officials from a rehab facility where Chris has spent more than three months write that the singer has "acted out physically" because of his "untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD." However, officials do not discuss the cause of Chris' PTSD, which occurs after a person is exposed to traumatic events. Since entering the facility more than 90-days ago, Chris has been prescribed medication for his bipolar disorder and has learned relaxation exercises to help him cope with his anger. The treatment center also claims that Brown has been "beyond exemplary in his community service responsibilities."
Last week, a Los Angeles judge extended Chris Brown's stay in rehab. In a hearing Friday, Chris' attorneys asked the judge not to rule on the singer's probation status until the outcome of his April assault trial in Washington, D.C. Brown will return to a Los Angeles court on April 23rd.
GWEN STEFANI gave birth to a baby boy on Friday. His name is, sadly, Apollo Bowie Flynn Rossdale, and he's the third child for Gwen and GAVIN ROSSDALE. They also have a 7-year-old son named Kingston and a 5-year-old boy named Zuma.
Former it-couple Harry Styles and Taylor Swift may have had a run-in over the weekend. UK's "Daily Mail" says the One Direction star and country singer were spotted together at The Weinstein Company's pre-Oscar party in Hollywood on Saturday. A source tells the site that Harry and Taylor were seen "having a civil conversation" at one point in the night, although they were seated at separate tables. The insider adds that the two "looked totally fine considering all their history." It's one of the first times they've crossed paths since last year's MTV Video Music Awards, where Taylor was rumored to have dissed Harry while accepting an award for "I Knew You Were Trouble" - a song that's said to have been written about him.
