It’s pretty much the most thankless job in showbiz, but if you pull it off you have everyone’s respect for at least a few days afterward. The last time Ellen hosted the Oscars was 2007, and she got decent but not rave reviews. Check her out here taking a selfie with Clint Eastwood for her MySpace profile picture (OK, it WAS 2007). The interplay was casual, weird, and hilarious. She asks Steven Spielberg to take the picture. “Make sure we’re both in, Steven… Can you make it more even on both sides?” Who else could pull that off? (via Daily Beast)
Photographed by writer-director Brad Bird, this would-be Academy Award, the C3POscar, is a Star Wars-themed trophy given to Lucasfilm employees after 20 years of loyal service. This particular one was presented to Paul Matwiy, a crew member on numerous Star Wars episodes. It may just be our mood today, but we think it’s more impressive than the one the Academy doles out every year. (via laughingsquid)
