Neil Patrick Harris was shockingly unfunny hosting the Oscars last night. What happened?
Read all Slate’s coverage of the 2015 Oscars. Is being an Oscar host a thankless task or the most thankless task in all of entertainment? Best-case scenario for host: You don’t irrevocably scorch your reputation. Worst-to-regular case scenario: You do. But going into tonight’s oversized Oscar telecast, Neil Patrick Harris seemed...

He seems like a good guy, but he's not a comedian, he's an actor. Hosting an event like this is a bit too much to ask anyone who doesn't have the experience or chops to pull it off. Nothing against him, it's just not his field, and it was a bad call.

Norm MacDonald tweets about SNL 40 and gives a behind-the-scenes look at Eddie Murphy, Mike Myers, and Celebrity Jeopardy.   
Norm MacDonald was one of countless alums to grace SNL on Sunday, when the show celebrated its 40th anniversary with an intermittently amusing, intensely nostalgic, and largely interminable special episode. And though his comic chops were on full display in the special's Celebrity Jeopardy skit, it turns out he was...

Fifty Shades of Grey is a great bad movie.
Fifty Shades of Grey is a ridiculous movie. Why are the main characters, Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, named like 19th-century ballerinas? How is it that newcomer Dakota Johnson (Ana) manages to come off so wry, stunning, and sensitive, while recovered Calvin Klein model Jamie Dornan (Christian) rolls through the...

Review sounds like it is panning the movie, then says he would definitely see it again. The review is worse than the movie.

Kristen Wiig joined Sia at the Grammys for a performance of "Chandelier".
For anyone familiar with the hit song and video for Sia’s “Chandelier,” her performance at the Grammys was pretty much what you’d expect, except for one thing: A bewigged and leotard-clad Kristen Wiig. The comedian joined tween dancer and frequent Sia collaborator Maddie Ziegler for a serious, emotionally charged pas de deux—and the result...

Sia doesn't want to loose he anonymity so she shoves a 12 year old girl in a nude coloured leotard into the spotlight in her place. Thought's?

Why did America lose its mind over Beanie Babies in the 1990s?
In July of 1999, I traveled with my family to Tenby, Wales. The town is said to be picturesque, but I have no memory of its scenery—except for a small toy store we passed on our drive in. As soon as we settled into our hotel, my sister and I...

But just think of it. Streaming shoes, just for that special event. Would it require a special set?

Neil Young’s PonoPlayer sounds no better than an iPhone--no matter what audiophiles say.
When Neil Young announced his plan to design a better portable music player, it sounded like a marvelous ambition. His Kickstarter appeal quickly lured $6.2 million in hopeful backing, with Young declaring he was on a quest “to revive the magic that has been squeezed out of digital music.” The...

Don't be the next Brian Williams: 10 ways to avoid false memories. 
For years, Brian Williams told various versions of a story about his experiences during the U.S. invasion of Iraq in March 2003. Last week, he admitted he had gotten crucial facts wrong, and he apologized. It’s possible that Williams was lying all along for self-aggrandizing reasons, but his serial misstatements...

Brian Williams spoke seven times about the Iraq helicopter experience he didn't have.
Brian Williams apologized on NBC Nightly News on Wednesday for claiming that he’d been in a helicopter in Iraq that was hit by an RPG. But as I noted after his appearance, his apology continued to imply that he was in a helicopter in the same group as the craft that...

That bad left shark from the Super Bowl halftime show? A professional dance critic defends it.
The breakout stars of last night’s Super Bowl halftime show were, needless to say, the sharks. Flanking Katy Perry, they mutely waved their fins and flapped their jaws to the words of “Teenage Dream.” Looking less like sharks than blue, befanged sleeping bags, they made every effort to dance. But...
