PricewaterhouseCoopers is gonna get FIRED! This is the craziest thing we've ever seen at the Academy Awards -- an incorrect award announcement!
As Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway presented the Best Picture Award, Beatty was confused when he opened the envelope -- apparently it read "Emma Stone, La La Land." Weird thing was, she had just won for Best Actress. And obviously Beatty knew her name wouldn't be on a Best Picture winner's card. He furrowed his brow, re-read the card, looked at Dunaway, and stood quizzically, staring at the audience as they all assumed he was holding out for dramatic effect. Dunaway grabbed the card and chastised Beatty and read La La Land as the winner.
The cast and producers came on stage, started giving their acceptance speeches, handing out long-winded thank-yous to loved ones when a commotion broke out behind the large group. Men with headsets scrambled, Beatty commiserated with them, host Jimmy Kimmel joined in and word spread ... La La Land did NOT win. Moonlight won. There had been a mistake.
This is the best sh*t we've ever seen on the stale, boring Oscars and to top it off, it's OBVIOUS Moonlight was the best picture of the year -- that film rocked!!! Congrats to Barry Jenkins and his awesome cast!

Lady Gaga is fierce!
The Super Bowl diva hit up Maha Yoga in Brentwood and yes, she was wearing yoga leggings ... but she was also wearing heels, cat eye sunglasses and carrying a vintage Hermes Birkin as a gym bag!
Never one to be understated, Gaga looked posh in her chic get-up and her platinum blonde locks also made a statement. How in the world
did she do a hot, sweaty yoga class and come out looking fresh as a daisy?!

You can't walk down the street in LA without bumping into a celebrity during the last few days leading up to the Oscars and well, that's exactly what we did!
Between pre-Oscar parties, last-minute errands, fittings, workouts, and the Independent Spirit Awards, Hollywood was literally crawling with stars preparing for the big day.
Friday night, celebs like Nicole Kidman, Rachel Zoe and Poppy Delevingne hit a Chanel pre-Oscar party, a star-studded gathering at Catch drew the likes of Bethenny Frankel and Patrick Schwarzenegger who arrived with a bevy of babes, Christina Milian and a duct-taped EJ Johnson! Even a pregnant Beyonce and hubby Jay Z came out for an Oscar pre-party!
The Independent Spirit Awards brought out biggies like Annette Bening, Warren Beatty and Orlando Bloom. Also, Matt Damon, Ruth Negga, Naomi Harris and many, many more. To see a full list of Indie Spirit Award winners, click through!
It takes work to look this beautiful, though -- stars have to sweat it out to get in shape for the red carpet and, of course, there are those last-minute errands to finish before bewitching hour. Naomi Watts, Reese Witherspoon and Brooke Burke all went casual for a day of exercise and errands, on Sunday morning.
And then there was the United Voices rally organized by United Talent Agency in front of their Beverly Hills offices. Celebs like Michael J. Fox and Jodie Foster came to speak about the injustice of President Donald Trump's immigration ban that caused UTA-repped Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, helmer of the Oscar-nominated foreign film The Salesman
, to be banned from visiting the US to attend the Academy Awards.

Did Caitlyn Jenner finally find a girlfriend?!
We weren't sure which way she'd go ... and neither was she. Back when she was doing her reality show, I Am Cait
, the transgender activist told her pals, "To be honest with you, I can't see myself dating women in the future. I've been there done that. I've got three very strong ex-wives. I just don't see it."
Well ... maybe she's changed her mind? We spotted Ms. Jenner out Friday evening with a mystery lady in Malibu and the two looked quite smitten. Could Caitlyn finally have met her match?

What a night! Friday night at Catch brought out an eclectic group of celebs, including Bethenny Frankel, Patrick Schwarzenegger (with whom we could actually kinda see Bethenny getting cougar), Christina Milian and EJ Johnson who was -- obvi -- the most fabulous of them all.
Speaking of EJ -- smoky eye, on fleek; bandage top, fierce; crocodile Hermes bag, sick; Mongolian fur coat, bomb. If only the rest of us had an ounce of his style ...
And while Patrick was out playing, we happened to run into his parents, too. Dad Arnold attended photographer Ellen von Unwerth's exhibit opening while mom Maria and brother Chris were grabbing coffee in Brentwood on Saturday. Our videographer asks Maria if she's going to "try to save our country from Trump" and well, we got a smile ...

Looks like Mariah Carey's backup dancer boy toy Bryan Tanaka is integrating well with the diva's family!
Carey's twins, Moroccan and Monroe, goofed off with the dancer as they touched down at LAX Saturday ahead of the Oscars.
Tanaka pushed Monroe on the luggage trolley as she made faces and laughed. Looks like Bryan's a lot more fun to have around than Mariah's ex fiance James Packer!

There's no hiding it now!
Amal Clooney showed off her baby bump today at the Cesar awards with husband George, and she's the cutest pregnant woman ever! The British-Lebanese beauty looked absolutely stunning in a white Atelier Versace gown, and her belly seems to be growing by the day. The actor was being presented the Career award for being "the most charismatic actor of his generation," but his wife totally stole the show!
The couple announced they were expecting twins last week after months of speculation, and they've already begun to make changes to their lifestyle in preparation to become parents.
"We decided to be much more responsible, to avoid the danger. I will not go to South Sudan anymore and in the Congo, Amal will no longer go to Iraq and she will avoid places where she knows she is not welcome. Before, I did not care, I would even say that there was a pretty exciting side to going where no reporter had ever been. We have the chance to live between three countries: Italy, America and England," the A-list star told Paris Match
"In the meantime, we will continue to move according to our respective schedules. People think we're never together, but we have not been separated for more than a week," he added.
The Money Monster
star's mom Nina told reporters her son and the human rights lawyer were having a boy and a girl, due in June, but it seems she got her facts wrong!
"I don’t know where this rumor comes from that we’re going to have a boy and a girl. We ourselves don’t know yet and don’t want to know," he confessed.
We never thought we'd see the day that the infamous bachelor was a settled, married man ready to become a father!

Que the whole world freaking out!
Beyonce shared a pic of herself and Blue Ivy donning Snapchat filters, and fans quickly deduced that she must have a secret account! "So now we know Beyoncé got a Snapchat,” wrote one follower. "I'm exhausted trying to find Bey's Snapchat account," wrote another.
Another thing the beehive is freaking out about? The fact that Queen B had to cancel her scheduled headlining performance at Coachella because she's pregnant with twins. "I literally only bought a Coachella ticket for Beyoncé. This is stupid. Who wants my ticket?!" someone tweeted, which has echoed by countless others.
“Following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months, Beyoncé has made the decision to forgo performing at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival," a statement posted to Coachella's Facebook account explained.
Anything she does causes mass hysteria!
