How 'Bout the Globes on Them 'Dreamgirls'?

Overheard at the Golden Globe Awards: "'Everyone's drinking,' said Weeds star and supporting-actor nominee Justin Kirk. 'You sit at a table and they feed you and drink you.'" -- AP "Cameron Diaz was probably the worst dressed at the entire awards show." -- Worst Dressed List at HollyScoop "I love gay. I wanted to be gay," said Grey's Anatomy's Isaiah Washington on the red carpet. "Please let me be gay." -- AP. "Washington took...

See the Brightest Comet in 40 Years

Comet McNaught may be visible in Southern California for the rest of the week (it is now brightest in the Southern Hemisphere but has hung around Northern skies longer than expected). It's the brightest comet in our sky in 42 years, and can be seen chasing the sun at sunset with the naked eye. In recent days, McNaught has also been photographed in daylight. Discovered last August by an Australian astronomer, the comet is...

Paula Abdul Gets Straight Up Loopy

The "Idol" judge canceled several interviews after the above video hit YouTube, featuring Abdul appearing drunk -- or something -- in a morning news interview. "It's a wild party where you are," said the ex-Laker girl-cum-pop songstress while doing her best imitation of a dashboard bobblehead. But her agent says she doesn't drink. Is Paula simply "lost in a dream?" We hope to find out Tuesday....

Baghdad: 'Think of L.A.'

We've been bombarded with ill-conceived, soulless and zombie-like statements out of Washington over the past 24 hours. None more insulting and ridiculous than an unnamed Defense official comparing Baghdad to L.A.:"You do it neighborhood by neighborhood," said the Defense official. "Think of L.A. Let's say we take West Hollywood and gate it off. Or Anaheim. Or central Los Angeles. You control that area first and work out from there." Who is and how can an...

2006: The Year in Photo-horrorism

members and ex-members of Mara Salvatrucha The Annenberg School at USC is hosting the Getty/TNT/Canon/LATimes World Press Photo Award-Winning Images of '06 thru Feb. 1 and it's bloody horrifying. And not just because TribCo axe-man David Hiller is in town (photo below -- James O'Shea was on hand but held fire, er, I mean he didn't speak). Matter o' fact, USC's Annenberg School is the only host of this traveling Dutch-based show in the U.S....

Goin' Pro

Surprising nobody, USC's All-American wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett announced that he will forgo his final year of eligibility and enter the NFL Draft. The 6'5" Jarrett had an especially strong second half of the 2006 season, after healing from a shoulder injury, and set the Pac-10 record for career touchdowns (41 touchdowns in 38 games) while becoming USC's all-time receptions leader with 216 catches for 3,138 yards. He crowned his college career by winning the...

10 Reasons Why LA is Not Chicago

10) While LA's Silversun Pickups can't seem to shed the Smashing Pumpkins comparisons despite releasing a record -- "Carnavas" -- that tops anything Billy Corgan's done since Siamese Dream, the only think rockin' in Chicago these days is the back seat of R. Kelly's stretch Benz. 9) Ex-Illinois Governor George Ryan may be headed to jail for his activities as a corrupt, crony-lovin' highway-to-nowhere-building Republican, but he at least had the foresight to impose...

Phallus Class at Oxy College?

Los Angeles accounted for 25% of the Young America's Foundation's "Dirty Dozen" list, as showcased in the "Current" section buried in Sunday's Times. The YAF site is a joke -- but apparently this feature, published since the '60s, is not. "America's Most Bizarre and Politically Correct College Courses" (and I'm sure they missed the REAL good ones). Eagle Rock's Occidental College takes two of the top five:...

Starry Decisis: LAX Confidential

In the days before 9/11, the biggest hassle in airport travel was having to turn down the pleas of the old women in nurses costumes standing by the escalators. Now, after 9/11, the fake nurses are still there, but they move down the long security lines that line the curbs. In this age of strict airport regulation, it's surprising that airport solicitors and proselytizers didn't get the steel-toed boot a long time ago. Instead,...

Starry Decisis: Our Bodies, Our Cells

As anyone who's seen Doc Hollywood knows, Los Angeles has a fairly secure footing in the medical community, or at least the cosmetical medical community. The city is also home to one of the world's premiere research hospitals, the UCLA Medical Center, which recently benefited from a $200 million donation by David Geffen. Last year, the hospital suffered a PR blow when one of the workers in its morgue was arrested for selling body...

Starry Decisis: The Ex Files

Cynics of the world will not be surprised to find out that divorce became a whole lot easier thanks to a Los Angeles case. Citizens of this city of exes have a bad rap for treating marriage like, well, a bad wrap - chucking it easily into the nearest trash can. Yet, the legal decision that makes divorce doable evinces nothing but the highest respect for institution of marriage. It's a case worth revisiting,...

Starry Decisis: Los Angeles's Lusty Legal History

This column is the first in a series of articles on important Supreme Court cases that have developed out of events in Los Angeles. "Stare Decisis" is the guiding principle of the American legal system - the court should "let the decision stand" and respect precedent for the sake of the rule of law. Even though it is known for shaping American pop culture, Los Angeles has shaped American legal culture in more ways...
