Angelina Jolie

Finding out who wins an Academy Awards is great, but the real competition is on the red carpet. Check out five leading ladies who really got it right!

Angelina Jolie (above) made waves in 2004 in a white satin Marc Bouwer gown with a plunging neckline.

That same year Charlize Theron looked stunning in a white sequined figure-huggin Tom Ford for Gucci gown. Va va voom! Unfortunately, she had a fashion misstep a few years later.

In 2003, Jennifer Lopez took a chance in a mint green Valentino one-shouldered kaftan-styled robe based on a design for Jackie Kennedy.

Penelope Cruz turned heads in 2009 in a vintage Balmain 50’s gown, while Halle Berry sizzled in 2002 in a burgundy Elie Saab gown. She also won “Best Actress” for Monster’s Ball that year.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has famously used her failed romances as song inspiration and has no problem with her musician exes following her example, insisting it’s “fair game.”

The country pop star has dated several well-known stars, including actor Jake Gyllenhaal, rocker John Mayer and One Direction’s Harry Styles. She has become known for break-up anthems like “I Knew You Were Trouble” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and has openly admitted to drawing from her own relationship troubles for the songs.

The tune “Dear John” was reportedly based on her 2009 fling with Mayer, prompting the rocker to criticize at her for making him “feel terrible” with her “cheap songwriting”, but she insists her former lovers are more than welcome to pen songs about their break-up too.

Swift told Britain’s InStyle magazine, “If I’m gonna write songs about my exes they can write songs about me. That’s how it works. I’m not gonna complain about it. I’m not gonna sit there and say, ‘I’m the only one who can write songs about this relationship’. It’s fair game.”

Jermaine Jackson, Now Jacksun

A judge has granted Jermaine Jackson, 58, permission to officially change the spelling of his famous last name.

In November, Michael Jackson’s older brother filed papers in Los Angeles Superior Court, requesting to legally alter his surname to “Jacksun” for “artistic reasons.”

Steve Dennis, a friend of the singer, said Jermaine’s reasons for the spelling change is purely for performance purposes. “Phonetically, it changes nothing,” Dennis told the AP. He added, “It is something he has chosen to do, and it’s fair to say that you cannot blame this one on the boogie, you’ve got to blame it on the sunshine.”

Dennis was referring to one of the Jackson 5’s famous songs “Blame It On The Boogie.”

On Friday a judge approved Jermain’s petition, according to TMZ.com. Jermaine did not attend the hearing because he is currently on tour in Europe with his brothers as The Jacksons.

The singer is married and has nine children. No word on whether any of them are changing their names.

Ethan Hawke

Ethan Hawke has branded the Oscars “destructive” and “fake” in a scathing criticism of the Hollywood awards season just days before the movie industry’s biggest prize giving.

The two-time Oscar nominee, who received nods for 2001’s Training Day and 2004 romance Before Sunset, fears the annual tradition of handing out prizes is detrimental to the industry because it encourages such a fiercely competitive culture.

He is also convinced the Academy Awards have very little value because they have been won by so many “stupid movies” and “mediocre performers” over the years.

In an interview with Gotham magazine, which has emerged online just days before Sunday’s Oscars ceremony, Hawke says, “People want to turn everything in this country into a competition… It’s clear who the winner is and who the loser is. It’s why they like to announce the grosses of movies, because it’s a way of saying, ‘This one is No. 1.’ It’s so asinine…

“If you look at how many forgettable, stupid movies have won Oscars and how many mediocre performers have Oscars above their fireplace. Making a priority of chasing these fake carrots and money and dubious accolades, I think it’s really destructive.”

Kanye West & Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian is reportedly against her boyfriend Kanye West’s plan to hire a team of nannies to help take care of their newborn.

The rapper wants to employ an entourage of help when they become parents in July, but the reality star is insisting they care for the baby themselves.

According to The Daily Star, the singer fears Kim will be juggling too much and pointed out that she had a difficult time taking care of her pet kitten Mercy. The source added that Kim couldn’t believe Kanye compared her looking after a pet to being a new mom.

Meanwhile, the couple doesn’t know yet if they’re having a boy or a girl, but Kim recently told E! News: “I don’t know what we’re having yet. I do want to find out, I do.”

Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf has gone public with private emails between his Orphans co-star Alec Baldwin and director Daniel Sullivan in a bid to explain his sudden decision to leave the Broadway show.

The Transformers star was due to make his New York stage debut opposite Baldwin and Tom Sturridge next month but producers revealed on Wednesday that he had dropped out of the production due to “creative differences”.

Sharing his side of the story, LaBeouf took to Twitter.com and posted a series of screen shots of email exchanges between himself and others, with email addresses allegedly belonging to Sullivan, Baldwin and playwright Lyle Kessler.

In one exchange, the young actor apologizes to Baldwin “for my part of a dis-agreeable situation” while Sullivan’s reported response reads, “I’m too old for disagreeable situations. you’re one hell of a great actor. Alec is who he is. you are who you are. you two are incompatible. i should have known it. this one will haunt me. you tried to warn me. you said you were a different breed. i didn’t get it.”

Baldwin writes, “I’ve been through this before. It’s been a while. And perhaps some of the particulars are different. But it comes down to the fact that what we all do now is critical. Perhaps especially for you. When the change comes, how do we handle it, whether it be good or bad? What do we learn?”

He adds, “I don’t have an unkind word to say about you. You have my word,” to which LaBeouf replies, “same… good luck on the play. you’ll be great.”

The revival of Lyle Kessler’s 1983 play is still scheduled to open for previews at the Schoenfeld Theatre in New York on March 19th. The production will officially launch on April 7th.

A replacement for LaBeouf has not yet been named.

Spring Breakers German premiere

On the heels of the French premiere of “Spring Breakers,” the film’s leading ladies jetted to Germany for the Berlin opening of their upcoming movie

Ashley Benson glittered in a gold sequined gown, while Vanessa Hudgens wore a very colorful one-shouldered sequined dress with a slit up the leg.

Selena Gomez opted for sexy menswear, taking the plunge in a revealing low-cut jacket with gold accents. Partner in crime Rachel Korine was absent.

In the film, four college students find their Florida spring break taking an unexpectedly violent turn after falling in with a local gangster (James Franco).

Gomez recently warned parents not to take their tweens to see the film. She explained, “I’ve done my best to warn the parents and my younger fans. I’ll be 21 this year, so, for me, it’s been kind of refreshing and nice to step out of my comfort zone and do things that I didn’t think I could do as an actress…But 18 and older (fans), go see Spring Breakers!”

The film hits theaters on March 29.

Check out more photos from the premiere…
