Cheer up, dude!
Justin Bieber tried to take a leisurely stroll through Beverly Hills with a friend last night, but he ended up bumping into a sea of paparazzi because he walked right by the Vanity Fair Oscars party. The Biebs wasn't very happy about getting his picture taken, but he didn't lose his temper like he has on previous occasions.
The VF soiree probably brings back painful memories for JB. Last time he attended, he was happily in love with Selena Gomez, and now she's happily in love with The Weeknd. The "Come & Get It" songstress is currently in Amsterdam with the "Starboy" crooner, and it doesn't seem to be sitting well with her Canadian pop star ex.
Maybe he was just crabby because he was up late partying at Floyd Mayweather's birthday the night before?

We still can't believe this happened!
The crowd was shocked when Warren Beatty accidentally announced that La La Land had won Best Picture at the Oscars, when in fact the award was meant for Moonlight, but it wasn't exactly the actor's fault. Apparently, he had been handed the wrong envelope, which was for Emma Stone's win for Best Actress, and it might have been Leonardo DiCaprio's doing.
The Revenant star presented the award to Stone moments before the Best Picture category, and some people think he accidentally gave his envelope to Beatty.
PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the firm that handles counting votes and determining the winners, took the blame for the mix-up.
"We sincerely apologize to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for Best Picture. The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected. We are currently investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred," they said in a statement.
This certainly made things interesting!

It's always the biggest soiree of the year!
Celebs came out in forces for the Vanity Fair Oscars after party last night, and it looked like quite the wild time! Jennifer Aniston and husband Justin Theroux rubbed elbows with fellow A-list couples like Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom and Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth, while Caitlyn Jenner largely kept to herself with a blonde companion.
Earlier in the night, the Friends
star teared up while honoring the late Bill Paxton, and there wasn't a dry eye in the house. She must be glad Brad and Angelina are divorcing, so she doesn't have to worry about running into them at bashes like these!
We were starting to think the "Chained to the Rhythm" songstress and her British beau were dunzo, so we were happy to see them celebrating film's biggest night together.
There's no doubt the Best Picture mix-up was a topic of conversation among the famous attendees!

PricewaterhouseCoopers is gonna get FIRED! This is the craziest thing we've ever seen at the Academy Awards -- an incorrect award announcement!
As Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway presented the Best Picture Award, Beatty was confused when he opened the envelope -- apparently it read "Emma Stone, La La Land." Weird thing was, she had just won for Best Actress. And obviously Beatty knew her name wouldn't be on a Best Picture winner's card. He furrowed his brow, re-read the card, looked at Dunaway, and stood quizzically, staring at the audience as they all assumed he was holding out for dramatic effect. Dunaway grabbed the card and chastised Beatty and read La La Land as the winner.
The cast and producers came on stage, started giving their acceptance speeches, handing out long-winded thank-yous to loved ones when a commotion broke out behind the large group. Men with headsets scrambled, Beatty commiserated with them, host Jimmy Kimmel joined in and word spread ... La La Land did NOT win. Moonlight won. There had been a mistake.
This is the best sh*t we've ever seen on the stale, boring Oscars and to top it off, it's OBVIOUS Moonlight was the best picture of the year -- that film rocked!!! Congrats to Barry Jenkins and his awesome cast!

Lady Gaga is fierce!
The Super Bowl diva hit up Maha Yoga in Brentwood and yes, she was wearing yoga leggings ... but she was also wearing heels, cat eye sunglasses and carrying a vintage Hermes Birkin as a gym bag!
Never one to be understated, Gaga looked posh in her chic get-up and her platinum blonde locks also made a statement. How in the world
did she do a hot, sweaty yoga class and come out looking fresh as a daisy?!

You can't walk down the street in LA without bumping into a celebrity during the last few days leading up to the Oscars and well, that's exactly what we did!
Between pre-Oscar parties, last-minute errands, fittings, workouts, and the Independent Spirit Awards, Hollywood was literally crawling with stars preparing for the big day.
Friday night, celebs like Nicole Kidman, Rachel Zoe and Poppy Delevingne hit a Chanel pre-Oscar party, a star-studded gathering at Catch drew the likes of Bethenny Frankel and Patrick Schwarzenegger who arrived with a bevy of babes, Christina Milian and a duct-taped EJ Johnson! Even a pregnant Beyonce and hubby Jay Z came out for an Oscar pre-party!
The Independent Spirit Awards brought out biggies like Annette Bening, Warren Beatty and Orlando Bloom. Also, Matt Damon, Ruth Negga, Naomi Harris and many, many more. To see a full list of Indie Spirit Award winners, click through!
It takes work to look this beautiful, though -- stars have to sweat it out to get in shape for the red carpet and, of course, there are those last-minute errands to finish before bewitching hour. Naomi Watts, Reese Witherspoon and Brooke Burke all went casual for a day of exercise and errands, on Sunday morning.
And then there was the United Voices rally organized by United Talent Agency in front of their Beverly Hills offices. Celebs like Michael J. Fox and Jodie Foster came to speak about the injustice of President Donald Trump's immigration ban that caused UTA-repped Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, helmer of the Oscar-nominated foreign film The Salesman
, to be banned from visiting the US to attend the Academy Awards.

Did Caitlyn Jenner finally find a girlfriend?!
We weren't sure which way she'd go ... and neither was she. Back when she was doing her reality show, I Am Cait
, the transgender activist told her pals, "To be honest with you, I can't see myself dating women in the future. I've been there done that. I've got three very strong ex-wives. I just don't see it."
Well ... maybe she's changed her mind? We spotted Ms. Jenner out Friday evening with a mystery lady in Malibu and the two looked quite smitten. Could Caitlyn finally have met her match?

What a night! Friday night at Catch brought out an eclectic group of celebs, including Bethenny Frankel, Patrick Schwarzenegger (with whom we could actually kinda see Bethenny getting cougar), Christina Milian and EJ Johnson who was -- obvi -- the most fabulous of them all.
Speaking of EJ -- smoky eye, on fleek; bandage top, fierce; crocodile Hermes bag, sick; Mongolian fur coat, bomb. If only the rest of us had an ounce of his style ...
And while Patrick was out playing, we happened to run into his parents, too. Dad Arnold attended photographer Ellen von Unwerth's exhibit opening while mom Maria and brother Chris were grabbing coffee in Brentwood on Saturday. Our videographer asks Maria if she's going to "try to save our country from Trump" and well, we got a smile ...
