Fugger: Rooney Mara

Oscars Fug Carpet: Rooney Mara in Givenchy


Aspects of this are beautiful, but how often can one woman show up at a major awards show wearing a sad, sad doily?

Oscar Luncheon Fugs and Fabs: The Supporting Actresses


Of the five-woman slate of Supporting Actresses, Winslet ditched the annual Oscars luncheon. Do we think she had to stay home because she lost her Kate Winslet costume?

SAG Awards Fug Carpet: Kate and Rooney Mara in Valentino


These two gave THE most excruciating interview on the E! pre-show, some of which might be because Brad Goreski is not adept at this and thus does not have enough experience milking a stone. But the sisters had weirdly little chemistry together. It was like they’d been CAST as sisters, then instructed to walk around pretending they’d really bonded on set.

I’ll be blunt. Rooney had a bad weekend.

Fugs and Fabs: Everyone Else at the W Great Performances Party


There is a SHARP demarcation here between the people who thought, “It’s cold. I’m wearing a coat to this thing,” or even, “it’s cold. I’m going to wear pants,” and people who thought, “NO. I DON’T CARE HOW COLD I AM. Look at my outfit!”

Fug the Covers: The W Movie Issue


So I guess all the cover-worthy “breakthrough years” were had by white people? Try harder, W. 

Not only is it disappointing to see such a glaring lack of diversity on these covers — Michael B. Jordan just won Best Actor for Creed from the National Society of Film Critics, and if you think people don’t want to buy a magazine with Michael B. Jordan’s great face on the front of it, you are wrong; Oscar Isaac is great both in The Force Awakens AND Ex Machina; Mya Taylor (who is featured inside the magazine, at least, and gets name-checked in the second line of the piece) is apparently fantastic in Tangerine – but also, albeit much less importantly, every single person who is on these covers has somehow been given exactly the same face. The photographs are well done, but once you’ve seen this, you cannot unsee it and it’s WEIRD. Rooney Mara looks like Carey Mulligan looks like Brie Larson looks like Eddie Redmayne looks like Saoirse Ronan looks like Alicia Vikander. You guys, if I can’t tell, at first glance, if I’m looking at Rooney Mara or Eddie Redmayne, you’ve got a problem.

Not to mention the fact that Rooney Mara was nominated for an Oscar in 2011; she may be wonderful in Carol, but her breakthrough came when she was in Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. She’s been the blooming host of the Met Gala already!  Saoirse Ronan was nominated for an Academy Award in 2007 (although I would actually accept an argument that this is the year she’s broken through as an adult; still). Carey Mulligan was Oscar-nominated in 2010 — for pete’s sake, give Daisy Ridley that cover if you’re so intent on a pale British brunette! Even Eddie feels like his breakout was well before this year, but I suppose, given that it’s POSSIBLE this headline refers to LAST year, in which he ALSO won an Oscar, I will allow it. That said: A MAJORITY OF THESE PEOPLE HAD DEFINITELY BROKEN THROUGH BEFORE THIS YEAR.  I DON’T THINK THAT WORD MEANS WHAT YOU THINK IT MEANS.

Fugol: Rooney Mara in Lanvin


Contrary to what I normally say, I think the makeup on Rooney works because her eye is SO strong that a bright lip would’ve looked aggressively Moulin Rouge with it.

However, the ENTIRE rest of her demeanor in this tube-with-lace-accents seems to suggest, “They told me it was time to bring Black Swan back around. I think they lied.”
