You know that a movie is having a major cultural impact when there is a Saturday Night Live sketch about it. On last night’s SNL, the first of 2011, Nasim Pedrad, Bill Hader, and host Jim Carrey poked fun at Black Swan‘s big theme: sexuality. Donning an over-the-top tutu, Carrey shows off his dance moves and, um, buffalo chicken wing tattoos.Vodpod videos no longer available.
But that chair does not look comfortable.
This picture of Pope Benedict watching Pius XII, Under the Roman Sky is one of Time Magazine’s Pictures of the Year.
Oscars host Anne Hathaway surprised the kids of the P.S. 22 chorus yesterday and told them that they will be performing at the Oscars. Cue screaming (seriously, you’ll want to turn down the volume) and some blank stares. It really is precious.
Their reaction throws some life into the Oscars. If these kids can get this excited for some stodgy awards show, why can’t the rest of us?
This video from Filmdrunk has been making its way around the Internet. Compiling every Arnold Schwarzenegger scream, grunt or yell he has provided us over the years into one seven-minute length video is really a brilliant concept. Seven minutes might seem like a long time to dedicate to the man but the mash-up uncovers the beauty of the man’s performance skills.
When I quickly researching Stage Door last night, I stumbled upon this glorious YouTube gem. From 1971, it is Ginger Rogers and Lucille Ball dancing the Charleston in the sitcom Here’s Lucy. It is pure bliss. Enjoy.
I’ve watched this a few times now and Ginger’s line as she leaves, “Please, please become a Katharine Hepburn fan,” just makes me giggle with delight. Even more having watched Stage Door, which stars all three actresses, just last night.
And how does Ginger’s Charleston above compare to her Charleston in Roxie Hart from 1942? It is pretty damn good.
