She messed up a bunch of her lines & just wasn’t very funny.
Remember when I said I thought Gabourey Sidibe would surprise us all and be really funny as a Saturday Night Live host? As it turns out, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Most of Gabby’s scenes throughout the episode were awkward and generally laugh-free. And don’t try to blame her lackluster performance on the bad writing — she also tripped over a bunch of her words! Laughing in the middle of a scene is one thing (I’m looking at you, Jimmy Fallon) because at least the audience has a chance to laugh along with the actors… but when someone in a scene obviously trips over their dialogue and has to correct themselves, it pretty much kills it for me.

Mo’Nique’s older brother finally apologized for molesting her as a child for the first time on Oprah — but one psychologist wonders if he’s really sorry, or just capitalizing on his sister’s fame.
Mo’Nique was repeatedly molested by her older brother when she was a child, and it has taken 37 years for him to come clean and apologize. A little too conveniently — right after his sister won an Academy Award, in fact — Gerald Imes finally admitted his sexual abuse and begged his sister’s forgiveness on Oprah April 19. Does his nationally syndicated apology seem heartfelt, or just a desperate bid to capitalize on his Mo’Nique’s newfound fame? One psychologist thinks Gerald’s remorse is completely fabricated.

Oscar winners faced the press last night after their big moments on the Kodak Theater stage!
The Oscar wins Mar.7 truly reflected the epitome of great acting. Mo’Nique took home an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the film Precious based on the novel Push by Sapphire. The award winning actress looked radiant in a royal blue gown and she admits there’s a special reason why she wore it. “It’s the color that Hattie McDaniel wore in 1940 when she accepted her Oscar,” says Mo’Nique. “The reason why I have this gardenia in my hair, it is the flower that Hattie McDaniel wore when she accepted her Oscar … So, for you, Ms. Hattie McDaniel, I feel you all over me, and it’s about time that the world feels you all over them.” Read more
Seattle Grace’s new heartthrob says he’s grateful not to be flipping burgers.
We know you love Jesse Williams — and so does HollywoodLife.com! So we couldn’t resist chatting up one of Grey’s Anatomy‘s latest additions when we saw him Feb. 26 at the NAACP Image Awards. “I’m incredibly grateful to have this opportunity,” he told us of his blossoming career. “I could be flipping burgers, and uh… no disrespect to people who flip burgers. We’re not caught in a snowstorm back in Brooklyn either, so things could be far worse.” A recurring role on one of TV’s hottest shows? Oh yes, Jesse, things could be far worse.

Oscar nomations were just announced in Hollywood, and there were no big surprises — except for in the new supersized Best Picture category, where sci-fi flick District 9 got a nod and Golden Globe winner The Hangover didn’t!

Were you shocked by any SAG Award winners?
We weren’t! Aside from the incredible tribute to Betty White, The 2010 Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony played out almost identically to last weekend’s Golden Globes. It was basically round two for repeat winners like Jeff Bridges, Sandra Bullock, Mo’Nique and Drew Barrymore — though at least Drew seemed considerably more flustered with her SAG acceptance speech than she was at the Globes.

Hey Mariah, maybe the next time you accept a big award you should remember to eat first!
There’s a lot of buzz about Mariah Carey’s erratic behavior at the Palm Springs International Film Festival gala Jan 5. In fact, there was SO much buzz because Mariah was MORE than buzzed – the songbird’s acceptance speech for her Breakthrough Performance in Precious was barely coherent.
After arriving onstage to accept her trophy, Mariah, 39, immediately leaped into Precious director Lee Daniels’ arms (he was her escort for the evening as hubby Nick Cannon, 29, was MIA) and began her slurring speech. “Well, I mean, please forgive me, I’m a little bit…” she stuttered at one point, whereupon one sassy audience member shouted out, “F***ing wasted!” Miz Mariah pointed one manicured finger at the screamer and yelled back, “Yea!”
Hey, it happens. Haven’t you ever had one too many and made a fool out of yourself?
Mariah Carey made quite a scene at the Palm Springs International Film Festival – and not because of her fashion sense, either. No, according to several sources – and even a few celebrities – the diva definitely had few more glasses of bubbly — or, whatever — than sense would dictate.
After giving a long-winded, rambling speech, the songbird, who had been honored at the festival for her breakthrough performance as an understated counselor in Precious, was escorted away while concerned audience members hurriedly clapped her offstage around 8:30 PM on Jan. 5. Her erratic behavior didn’t go unnoticed by Sean Penn, who walked onstage as she exited.
“I, unlike the prior speaker, will do this speech completely sober,” Sean, 49, cracked. Up in the Air director Jason Reitman, 32, made a similar statement. “I’m about as happy as Mariah is feeling right now!” he laughed.
