Actress Sean Young arrested at the Oscars! Honestly, we were rather dumbfounded at reading this headline and had to go investigate what the heck a B-list celebrity like Sean Young did to get herself thrown in jail on the night of the 2012 Academy Awards. Apparently it all turns out to be just another case of a has-been actor who just can’t get it through their head that perhaps they should just retire from the faltering spotlight and find a new line of work.
According to Los Angeles police, actress Sean Young was allegedly put under citizen’s arrest after a scuffle at the Governor’s Ball on Sunday night after the 2012 Oscars. Details about exactly what went on are still a bit sketchy, but it appears that Sean Young attempted to get into the party without an invitation. You know, because she used to be a kind of cool actress and, for a while, incredibly hot. Now, however, she’s barely recognizable, her face looks like she was injected with alien DNA and nobody really cares what the hell she wants because she hasn’t had a decent acting role in years.
The biggest star of the 2012 Oscars didn’t turn out to be Meryl Streep for winning Best Actress or “The Artist” for winning Best Picture. No, the most attention grabbing, breakout ‘star’ of the 2012 Academy Awards is undoubtably … Angelina Jolie‘s right leg.
At the Academy Awards on Sunday night, Angelina Jolie got a little weird when she took the stage to present the Oscar for the Best Adapted Screenplay. Looking incredibly, almost painfully, thin, the “In The Land of Blood and Honey” director struck a rather bizarre pose in her black Versace gown. Angelina Jolie’s right leg thrust out through a slit in the gown at an awkward angle, while the “Tomb Raider” star crooked her elbow to place a hand on her hip and grin weirdly at the crowd.
Media maven Oprah Winfrey will be the recipient of an honorary Oscar at the Academy Awards this November. The Academy of Motion Picture Sciences’ governors have decided to gift Oprah Winfrey with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award honorary Oscar for her contributions to humanitarian efforts across the world.
Honorary Oscars are gifted to those who exhibit “extraordinary distinction in lifetime achievement, exceptional contributions to the state of motion picture arts and sciences, or for outstanding service to the Academy.” The award is named after screen actor Jean Hersholt, president of theÂ Motion Picture Relief Fund for 18 years.
“[Oprah Winfrey] has been especially dedicated to supporting educational initiatives and raising awareness of issues that affect women and children, bith in the United States and around the globe,” a press announcement from the Academy stated.
Oprah was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for 1985’s The Color Purple. She will receive her honorary Oscar at the Governor’s Awards dinner on November 12 in Hollywood.
Actor James Earl Jones and makeup artist Dick Smith were also chosen to receive honorary Oscars this year.
