Good luck to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the Golden Globes. After failing three years in a row to make E Channel’s Best Dressed list, I decided to hand over the reins. Let me know if you run out of Scientology gags.

Ricky Gervais has some words for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, newly-announced Golden Globes hosts.

Yes, the Oscars can, and should, evolve. But right now, when movies, rather than dominating the culture front and center as they once did, look more and more like just one additional entertainment choice amid a brain-frazzlingly eclectic multi-media cosmos, I think it’s a big mistake for the Academy Awards ceremony to be in a perpetual neurotic state of reinventing itself, giving its Best Picture rules a new perm every other year. It looks arbitrary and vacillating, it reduces the Oscars more and more to being just One More Awards Show (rather than the awards show), and besides, it’s sort of like fussing with Christmas. You can’t really make it better; you can just make it less.

Owen Gleiberman decries the Oscars’ latest attempt to switch things up, arguing that the awards show is thisclose to losing its identity.

The awards show is switching to a variable system—meaning between five and 10 movies could get nominated for the top prize each year.

Outgoing Academy executive director Bruce Davis was credited for recommending the change, and said in a statement that analysis of the data showed voters regularly would have preferred more than five nominated films. But that doesn’t mean 10 is always merited. “If there are only eight pictures that truly earn that honor in a given year, we shouldn’t feel an obligation to round out the number,” Davis said.

Our Tony highlights gallery includes moments like Nikki M. James’s exuberant acceptance speech and Daniel Radcliffe’s impressive triple threatery—but the best slide might be the one that shows winner Frances McDormand’s bizarre outfit. Maybe she got mixed up and thought she was just going over to her friend Tony’s house?

Look who stopped by EW’s offices the other day to chat about the Tony Awards—it’s Andrew Rannells, star of The Book of Mormon! Watch our exclusive interview with him to see his “If I lose” reaction face and learn why he won’t be looking at the audience when he performs “I Believe” on Sunday night.

Vanessa. VANESSA. What, what, what are you doing?

(More MTV Movie Awards style hits and misses in our gallery.)

On TV, you saw Jim Carrey appear on stage in a suit that was showing clips of, among other things, two dogs going at it. On stage, however, we just saw him wearing a green suit. But what a cool effect, right?
