Fug File: Independent Spirit Awards

Fugs and Fabs of The Independent Spirit Awards: People in Patterns


The poor Independent Spirit Awards. It get totally subsumed by the Oscars, which happens the very next day. I’m sure that was originally the intention, but now that their definition of “independent” has basically stretched to mean, “any film not distributed by the government,” the whole thing has started to feel a little rushed. But our eagle eyes will not be denied! We WILL get to you, crazy outfits from the Independent Spirit Awards That We Didn’t Cover When Talking About The Oscars!

Oscars Fug or Fab: Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive


Cate Blanchett wears things that make me die inside, and things that make me swoon, and things that make me confused for feeling one way when I should probably feel the other. But one thing Cate almost never does is put on things that feel like I’ve seen their cousins a hundred times on other people, and that’s why this disappointed me. Well, that and the sparkly fishing lures. Although if you were EVER going to get me to fish, that would be the way.

Oscars Fugs or Fines: Helen Hunt


Sometimes I wonder if Helen Hunt sits at home pricking the larynx of her Anne Hathaway voodoo doll, muttering, “I was NAKED for WEEKS ON END, and it had to be the same year you cut your hair and ate oatmeal squares and did a one-take song with yellowed teeth? RAGE.” It might account for why every time Anne opened her mouth the past two months, Twitter cringed.
