Leonardo DiCaprio Nervously Waiting For His Oscar To Be Engraved Might Be The Most Human We’ve Ever Seen Him
In case you hadn’t heard, Leonardo DiCaprio won his first Oscar Sunday night. I’m going to skip the ‘did he or didn’t he’ deserve it debate and show you something much more interesting: Leonardo DiCaprio being a normal guy. Leo is and most likely always will be the epitome of cool. He’s a lifelong bachelor, movie mega star and about the only thing he has in common with me and you is that we’re all human beings. But watching him in this video is king of fascinating, because you can tell me he doesn’t really know what to do. He’s waited his entire professional life for this kind of validation, and now he’s just kind of nervously tapping the counter waiting for his name to be engraved into this golden statue. What’s next for Leo? I think Ryan Case had the perfect suggestion:
It would be so dope if Leo immediately signed on for Grown Ups 3.

– The Average Nobodies
The Golden Globes took place Sunday, and there was a lot to love about them. Ricky Gervais was naturally hysterical, and I will burn my own home to the ground before I dislike any awards show host who drinks a beer all night. The speeches were good, as were the presenters, and Denzel even won a makeshift lifetime achievement award. What were our favorite moments? Well, that’s what we’re hear for.
Sly Stallone Wins Best Supporting Actor
Sly Stallone has been in movies for 5 decades now, and while you’ll never hear him mentioned in the ‘greatest actors of our generation’ conversation, the characters he’s created will last forever. In that vain, it was pretty awesome to see him get recognized for his role in ‘Creed’, as the aging, wise and still emotionally fragile Rocky Balboa. Rocky is hands down one of the most iconic characters in movie history, and Stallone has found a way to breath life back into a character that we thought had thrown his final punch. ‘Creed’ was a very good movie, and the combination of Stallone and Michael B. Jordan was a fun one to watch. His speech was unjustly criticized, as he forgot to mention his fellow actors and director, but that’s just the society we live in now. We refuse to let anyone enjoy the moment, and even though this is Stallone’s first Golden Globe nomination in THIRTY EIGHT years, it’s much more accepted now to criticize his speech than congratulate the man who’s making it. My favorite part of his acceptance speech was when he proclaimed “I am the sum total of everyone I’ve ever met.” I really like that line, and I hope he has another chance to speak come Oscar night.
Jonah Hill puts a bear head on and Channing Tatum laughs like a school girl
The bartender at the Globes was over pouring and I LOVED it. It seemed like everyone who went to the mic was hammered off their ass. When Channing went up and introduced the Bear from The Revenant I knew exactly who would be lumbering on stage, Jonah “fluctuating weight” Hill. He did a hilarious little bit from the perspective of a bear on a big Hollywood set. The banter was funny, but was was even funnier was Channing laughing hysterically behind him. Its like he slipped a little bit of the drug from 21 Jump Street before going on stage.
I love that Jonah and Channing are best friends. If Ryan and I had the opportunity to get on stage during the Golden Globes I feel this is exactly what would happen. Moments later Ryan would be singing ‘Fast Car” and I would be screaming into the mic looking for Bill Paxton. That’s when we get banned from every hollywood event for the rest of our lives. Until that moment comes we will have to live vicariously through Jonah and Channing.

After a great live rendition of his ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ hit, The Weeknd was involved in an Apple Music ad that was so bizarre it bordered on hilarious insanity. It starts off well enough, with The Weeknd leaving a stage and heading into his private limousine. Then you notice that something is on fire right next to his limousine, and THEN it’s revealed that John Travolta is pulling off his best Lloyd Christmas impersonation as the driver of the limousine. It ends with ‘to be continued’ on the bottom of the screen, so thank the good Lord there’s going to be more to this. I can honestly say I have no idea where this is going, but I’ll be watching part 2 even if it comes out in 50 years.
We meet/scare the shit out of Bryan Cranston in New York City and two months later he wins a Tony award. Coincidence? I highly doubt it, but when your best friend wins an award you celebrate him. That’s what best friends do. When I win an award for being the best left fielder in the Warwick, Rhode Island Mernick Division of men’s softball I expect him to be the first phone call I receive. But for now, I’ll let him have the spotlight. Best friends forever.
P.S. Legitimate best friends forever.
Michael Jackson Performed as a Hologram on the Billboard Music Awards Last Night Because That’s Something That Happens Now
I enjoy Michael Jackson’s music. Personal allegations aside, he was an amazing singer/performer. He had a ton of number one hits and sold millions and millions of albums all while influencing a generation of musicians. To say having Michael Jackson resurrected as a hologram for a performance last night was unnecessary would be the understatement of the century. I thought the same thing about Tupac at Coachella and my stance isn’t changing. Not only is it haunting, but I watched both Tupac and MJ’s hologram performances and both crowds seem equally confused and horrified. It comes off weird to the live crowd and it’s really eerie watching it on TV. The only hologram I’m interested in is resurrecting Marvin Gaye to sing every national anthem at every sporting until the end of time. Until then, let’s stick to human beings singing and dancing.
Alan – Robin Thicke will stop at nothing to get his gal back.
The 37-year-old singer has reportedly written a new song in effort to work things out with his estranged wife, Paula Patton, and will perform it at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards, according to TMZ.
“I should’ve kissed you longer/ I should’ve held you stronger,” are some of the lyrics from the hearlfelt ballad titled “Get Her Back.”
“All I wanna do is make it right,” the track continues via the gossip site.
“I gotta get her, go get her back/ I gotta treat her right /I gotta cherish her for life”
This is not the first public attempt Thicke has made to make things right with Patton, who he has been involved with since his teenage years.
He has opened up at several of his concerts since the pair’s separation announcement, made in February after eight years of marriage, stressing how he wants to work things out.
Patton, 38, recently spoke out about the split in Vanity Fair’s June issue, telling the mag, “there’s a deep love there — always was, and always will be.”
Wait, am I supposed to feel bad for Robin Thicke? If you play the game you can’t get mad when the game ruins your life. That’s how it works. You can’t travel around the world seducing everybody and having sex with every girl who gives you the eye and expect your hot, actress wife to be OK with it. Also, let’s not forget that Robin Thicke has the one thing working for him that can heal this marriage: he’s a celebrity. Your wife caught you cheating? Write her a song that you can perform at an award show so she has no choice but to watch it. Make the lyrics all lovey dovey so she REALLY knows you mean it. It really is that simple. If I wrote my ex girlfriend a love song and tried to sing it to her I’d be trespassing and breaking probation. But Robin Thicke does it and he’s a hero. Game ain’t fair. Game ain’t fair.
