Yesterday, March 26, the Supreme Court began hearing arguments both for and against Prop 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the state of California.
In addition to changing their social media profile pics into the Human Rights Campaign's red equality sign, some celebrities tweeted feverishly for the repeal of the proposition, while others took to Facebook to express their support for marriage equality. And over on Tumblr, famous names were invoked to make the point.
In our Celebrity Tweets of the Week, Charlie Sheen showed us why he wasn't at the Oscars, Russell Crowe may have celebrated a bit too much after the show, Kevin Smith laid to rest rumors of ‘Clerks III’ casting, Rob Lowe weighed in on Dennis Rodman’s visit to North Korea -- and a whole lot more.
Now she's waded into another controversy, essentially saying if you find Anne Hathaway the slightest bit annoying, you're a detriment to feminism -- especially if you've ever laughed at Seth MacFarlane's jokes.
Unlike multiple-time hosts Jerry Lewis, Bob Hope, Johnny Carson, Chevy Chase, Billy Crystal and Whoopi Goldberg, MacFarlane revealed that while he had loads of fun, this was a once in a lifetime deal.
MacFarlane mocked the pomp and circumstance of the Oscars, but he still showed the Academy Awards grace and respect. Though this was not one of the Comedy Central roasts that the 'Family Guy' creator was used to, he still killed it.
This year, in a continuing quest by the Academy to make the Oscars “cool” (if you ignore last year), comedian and 'Family Guy' creator Seth MacFarlane was chosen to don a tux and bow tie and host the star-studded event.
To drum up press for the upcoming ceremony, MacFarlane proved that the event coordinators may have finally done something right.
The Oscars are fast approaching (because that's how time works) and ABC wants to remind you to watch the event, which will helpfully be held on "Oscar Sunday."
The day has thus been christened to help with pesky questions like, "Wait, when are the Oscars again?" To which you can now reply, "On Oscar Sunday, you dolt."
