One bright spot in a year so filled with sadness, loss, and defeat is Jackie Chan, who received an honorary Oscar at the 8th Annual Governors Awards on Saturday. Jackie Chan has spent the last 50 years and more than 200 movies jumping through windows, across buildings, and in between the rungs of ladders, just so we ingrates can smile for a couple of minutes. He's a planetary treasure, and it's just so nice to see him rewarded.
In addition to Chan, other honorary Oscars were given to editor Anne V. Coates of Lawrence of Arabia fame, casting director Lynn Stalmaster (the first casting director to win an Oscar), and documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman. Read more about the awards at Variety.
Twitter was very proud Jackie Chan, which, honestly, warms my heart.
Oh Amy, how we love you so. Check out 4:15 in the video, where Amy Schumer reveals her sexual history with Patrick Stewart, as she accepted her Man of the Year Award for Best Woman at the British GQ awards ceremony.
You'll always be my Man of the Year, Amy.
While you were getting over your Election Day hangover, the 2014 CMA Awards happened Wednesday night, and hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood kicked off the show, in part, by making a bunch of political jokes.
They covered everything from the Ebola nurse speaking out about quarantine in Maine, President Obama, the White House fence jumpers and, of course, the Democrats losing the Senate, which resulted in a huge applause fromt he CMA crowd.
But it wasn't all politics, the two also poked fun at Taylor Swift's departure from country music, Renee Zellweger's face, and the nude photo scandal.
