This year’s Academy Awards was the least watched in six years, according to preliminary viewing figures. USA Today reported that initial Nielsen estimates put the 87th Awards stats at 36.6 million viewers, the lowest since 2009.

Sunday’s ceremony, hosted by actor Neil Patrick Harris and dominated by Birdman, was a pretty steep 16% drop on last year’s awards when 12 Years a Slave won Best Picture. Ellen Degeneres hosted that one and, powered by a memorable selfie which was then re-tweeted around the world, it had 43.7 million viewers.

Jodie Foster has married her girlfriend of a year, Alexandra Hedison. The nuptials have been confirmed by Foster’s publicist, after celebrity network E! began circulating rumors over the weekend. The pair wed at an undisclosed location, although Foster resides in California, which is one of the 17 US states in which gay marriage is legal. Hedison was born and raised in California, so it’s likely that it is where the wedding took place.

Oscar-winning actress Jodie Foster publicly came out at last year’s Golden Globes, announcing “I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago, back in the stone age.

Oscar 2015: Neil Meron And Craig Zadan Are Back For A Third Oscars Ceremony


Ellen Degeneres Seth Macfarlane

Okay, ready for another awards season? The dust has barely settled on 2014’s selfie-centric Oscars, but the Academy are already looking ahead to another winter of speculation by confirming Neil Meron and Craig Zadan are returning as producers for a third ceremony in a row. 

Craig Zadan and Neil MeronZadan and Meron will work on The Oscars again 

It’s not as if the pair have gleaned critical acclaim for their last two efforts; Seth Macfarlane’s ceremony was considered to be too focussed on musicals, while DeGeneres’ was criticised for being too boring. Perhaps the producer pair can find some middle ground considering they’re taking on the middle of the decade in 2015.

Piers Morgan Criticises US Gun Laws On Last CNN Show


Piers Morgan Meryl Streep Madonna Alec Baldwin Shania Twain Ellen Degeneres

Piers Morgan ended his three year run on his CNN talk show Piers Morgan Live on Friday (28th March) with a plea to the US government to change "the absurd gun laws".Morgan's show was cancelled following low ratings and possibly his involvement in the phone hacking scandal, nevertheless he left the show on a somewhat controversial note.

Morgan, ever controversial, used his final show as an opportunity to comment on the social and political implications of gun laws in the US. He referenced recent tragedies in which guns were used to kill large numbers of people which prompted criticism of gun laws in the US and worldwide.

Morgan has spent a number of years in the states over the past decade and described gun violence, such as that displayed in the Connecticut Sandy Hook massacre and the Colorado Aurora Cinema, as "a disease that infects every aspect of American life". Referencing these attacks Morgan said, as The Independent reports: "I assumed that after 70 people were shot in a movie theatre and then just a few months later 20 first-graders were murdered with an assault rifle in an elementary school, that the absurd gun laws in this country would change, but nothing has happened".

The Best Oscars Host Ever? In Praise Of Ellen DeGeneres


Ellen Degeneres Portia De Rossi

Ellen Degeneres has become the most popular and loved television host in the States, cemented by her flawless performance hosting the Academy Awards on Sunday night. Ellen had the celebrities roaring with laughter as well as, at one stage, gathered together for a selfie. Ellen’s superstar selfie was retweeted over 2,000,000 times, crashing the server and making it the most retweeted pic of all time.

ellen degeneres portia de rossi Ellen and her wife Portia have been married since 2008

Ellen had previously hosted the Oscars back in 2007, but even by then she had been in the business for over 20 years. Ellen started in the stand up biz back in the early 1980’s, before getting her own sitcom Ellen in 1994. During the fourth season of the sitcom, Ellen publicly announced that she was a lesbian during an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Her character in the sitcom shortly followed suit and, in an episode called “The Puppy Episode”, which received some of the highest-ratings that Ellen had had so far, also came out. The show then went on to tackle some issues faced by the LGBT community, but after another season the show was axed due to falling ratings.

John Travolta's 'Adele Dazeem' Oscar Faux Pas Leads To 'Travoltify Your Name' Tool


John Travolta Ellen Degeneres Idina Menzel

There’s a fine line between the ignominy of Internet mockery and online hysteria. Jennifer Lawrence, for instance, enjoys the latter, while John Travolta calling Idina Menzel "Adele Dazeem" at the Oscars on Sunday night really secures you a place in the former camp.

John Travolta
There's something ridiculous about John Travolta - we just can't work out what it is

But this mockery isn’t all bad; after all, he only got someone’s name wrong. He did embellish the introduction with things like “wickedly talented” etc., but he only got Menzel’s name wrong.

Liza Minnelli didn't have exactly the best time at last night's Oscars.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie once again made sure all eyes were on them at last night's Academy Awards as they led the Hollywood royalty down the red carpet whilst looking very much the loved-up pair. The acting duo were virtually inseparable when posing for photos on the red carpet, making sure they were always touching and flashing dazzling smiles.

Brad Pitt & Angelina Echoed The BAFTAs In Their Oscars Union.

After last month's BAFTAs in London where the couple appeared in a matching tuxedo ensemble, Angelina decided to opt for a more feminine look at the Oscars and picked out a sparkling metallic and sheer gown by Elie Saab Haute Couture with diamond earrings and smoky eyes. Brad, as usual, played it safe with another classic and well-cut tuxedo and bowtie.

2014 Academy Awards: Ellen DeGeneres' Opening Monologue Expected To Be Tamer Due To Sensitive Content Of Nominated Films


Ellen Degeneres

The 86th Academy-Awards will be honouring one of the most impressive years for cinema in recent memory.

However, it will also be one of the most sensitive, as several of the key films depict real-life events.

With this in mind, it won't be surprising if the host, Ellen Degeneres, performs a far more tamed opening monologue compared last year's emcee, Seth MacFarlane.

Oscars 2014: What Kind Of Host Will Ellen DeGeneres Be?


Ellen Degeneres Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences

There are two of Oscar host: the one who’ll set out to insult as many people whilsy trying not to cross an invisible headline with a view to entertaining the audience at home, and then there’s the type who knows his-or-her-limits, and can be relied upon to give a solid performance. Ellen Degeneres almost certainly falls under the latter category.

Ellen DeGeneresEllen DeGeneres has hosted The Oscars before

“My intentions are to make people happy," the 56-year-old host told Robin Roberts on ‘Good Morning America’. "My intentions are to never hurt anybody, and my intentions are to have compassion and to hope I can spread that a little bit every single day." (Via New York Daily News)

Oscar Producers Zadan And Meron Tease Some Of This Year's Biggest Moments


Ellen Degeneres Craig Zadan Bette Midler U2 Pharrell Williams Idina Menzel Karen O

Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron made a controversial hit out of the Oscars last year, but they might be on thin ice this time. Getting Seth McFarlane to host anything is a risky bet and his antics last year got a lot of people – notably the feminist crowd – pretty riled up. The controversy served its purpose. Last year’s show pulled in 40.3 million US viewers, the largest audience the show has had in three years. Zadan and Meron’s show was a hit with the key 18-49 demographic and the duo were invited back this year.

Ellen Degeneres
Ellen might be a safer choice for host, but she is far from boring.

And yet. The choice of Ellen for this year’s host suggests that the producers were at least a little bit intimidated by last year’s backlash. This year’s host, Ellen, while hilarious and ever entertaining, is a much safer option and has proven appeal with the Oscars’ key demo – women.

Ellen Degeneres Promotes Oscars With Choreographed Dance Routine [Video]


Ellen Degeneres Paul Feig

The brand new trailer for the Oscars with host Ellen Degeneres looks more like it’s promoting the Tony Awards than the stuffy, glitzy Academy Awards. Not that anyone would mind – a choreographed dance number is always alright with us and if it includes tuxedoes, that’s even better.

Ellen Degeneres, Daytime Emmy Awards
With Degeneres hosting, it'll be an Oscars ceremony like no other.

While it doesn’t really feature any movie references, the minute-long video sets an entirely different tone for the awards than the one we’re used to. This looks more like something out of the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Golden Globes or Neil Patrick Harris’ Oscars, rather than the most competitive movie awards ceremony in Hollywood.

Did Kaley Cuoco Really Marry Ryan Sweeting On 'The Ellen Degeneres Show'?


Kaley Cuoco Ellen Degeneres

Kaley Cuoco has apparently married her tennis star fiancé Ryan Sweeting in a ceremony conducted on 'The Ellen Degeneres Show' - but was it real?

'The Big Bang Theory' actress appeared on the show in an episode that was aired yesterday (November 7th 2013) and was surprised to see her lover of five months appear on stage. Ellen then roped in her friend Kevin - an apparently ordained minister - to conduct a short service declaring them both husband and wife. Ryan nervously asked, 'This isn't legal, right?' before the talk show host insisted it was and later reemphasised the fact on Twitter:  'Congratulations, @KaleyCuoco and @RyanSweeets. Your wedding was beautiful. And also, legally binding.'

However, we're not so sure it was the real deal here at Contactmusic. It's easy enough to be a minister online, but you can't be legally wed without a marriage license; so sorry to you romantic folk hoping you'd witnessed such a special moment. Also, it was rather obvious Ellen was joking about her Twitter post after re-Tweeting Ryan's message ('Thank you @TheEllenShow for making me feel at home. Baby number one: Ellen Sweeting') with the comment, 'This tweet is legally binding, too.'

Kayley Cuoco & Fiance Ryan Sweeting "Get Married" On Ellen


Kaley Cuoco Ellen Degeneres

Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting are married! Well, not exactly, or at all really, but they did provide pretty entertaining TV at least. The Big Bang Theory star and her professional tennis player lover man were pushed to exchange vows on the Ellen Degeneres Show by the shows host in an impromptu ceremony set up in their honour.

"This isn't legal, right?" Sweetings asked his bride-to-be as she was pushed by DeGeneres towards the makeshift canopy where he and head writer Kevin A. Leman II stood. Cuoco had been discussing life with her fiance, whom she got engaged to in September after three months of dating, when Ellen offered her the chance of an immediate wedding at the show's expense - an offer that she jumped at.

Ellen then thrust an impromptu wedding on her and Sweeting. In a strange twist of fate, something Cuoco also commented on, she was even wearing a white dress! The ceremony was carried out by one of the show's writers, although Sweetling appeared to be slightly hesitant about the fake wedding asking "This isn't legal right?"

Wentworth Miller Neil Patrick Harris Ellen Degeneres Jesse Tyler Ferguson

When Wentworth Miller outed himself as gay in response to an invite from a Russia film festival, he was inundated with messages of support for his public outing and for protesting the archaic anti-homosexuality legislation rife in the former communist country. After receiving praise from the likes Neil Patrick Harris, Ellen DeGeneres and Jesse Tyler Ferguson on Twitter, the latest star to tip their hat at Wentworth is White Collar star Matt Boomer.

Ellen DeGeneres Chosen As The Host For 2014 Academy Awards Show


Ellen Degeneres

Ellen Degeneres has been picked as the host of next years Academy Awards ceremony, as organisers look to boost ratings and eliminate any potential controversy with next year's show. DeGeneres was picked from a nearly-bottomless list of potential candidates, emerging as the safest bet and the host most likely to guarantee a decent audience turnaround when the show is aired next year.

Ellen Degeneres Arrested Development
Ellen will host the Oscars for a second time next year

As first reported by Variety, Ellen is by no means a stranger to the awards show-circuit, having previously hosted the 2001 and 2005 Emmys and the Oscars in 2007, all of which produced very strong viewer-ratings, a feat that the show's organisers will hope can be replicated when she takes on hosting duties at the 2014 Oscars. Whilst her last hosting job came more than half a decade ago, her popularity has shown no signs of diminishing and if anything, Ellen has become an even bigger name with each passing year and her appointment seems to mirror her ever-ascending success.
