Nicole Kidman has blamed her seal-like clapping at the Oscars last month on incredibly expensive jewellery. The actress has become the butt of many jokes and a laughing stock in social media memes after fans compared her odd applauding at the 89th Academy Awards to a seal flapping its flippers, and on Wednesday the star broke down her clapping technique. Nicole was rocking 119 karats of Harry Winston jewels and a vintage diamond Omega museum wristwatch -- pieces worth millions of dollars altogether. And, as presenters passed on awards to Oscar winners, she found herself in an unexpected dilemma -- because she was suddenly overcome with the fear of damaging the expensive jewellery. “I don’t want to not be clapping, which would be worse right?” she said. “(People would think), ‘Why isn’t Nicole clapping?’ So therefore I’m clapping but it was really difficult because I had this huge ring on, which was not my own but was absolutely gorgeous and I was terrified of damaging it!”

Ryan Gosling made an appearance at a German Awards show a few days ago…only it wasn’t him. A Gosling impostor took the stage at a major German awards to accept a trophy for La La Land — much to the surprise of audience members Nicole Kidman, Jane Fonda and Colin Farrell. During the Goldene Kamera film and television awards on March 4 the host for the evening pumped up Ryan’s appearance. So La La Land gets announced, and the host says “The directors couldn’t be here today, but someone else agreed to take the award and we are very happy that he is here today, because he is the reason this movie is a success. One of the hottest stars in Hollywood … Here is the one and only Ryan Gosling!” The crowd erupted in cheers, but the man who emerged from backstage was someone who only slightly resembled Gosling. The look-alike accepted the trophy, grabbed the microphone and began speaking in a thick German accent. “Good evening, I am Ryan Gosling,” he said. "I dedicate this award to Joko and Klaas, thank you very much. There is a saying in Hamburg, which is, ‘bye, bye!’" According to a report, German comedians Joko Winterscheidt and Klaas Heufer-Umlauf coordinated the elaborate prank. They posted a video documenting how they pulled off the stunt on their YouTube account. The duo said in the video that they set up a fake talent agency to contact the Goldene Kamera organizers and promised that the Canadian actor would attend if he won an award, the Daily Dot reports. Per the website, the pranksters claimed that he would need to skip the red carpet and head straight backstage, so the first time event organizers got a good look at him was on stage.
There’s a parody movie of Rob Ford coming out and some people are pissed. The movie poster for the movie, Filth City, shows a Rob Ford look-a-like, named Mayor Hogg, smoking a pipe under a banner which says: “The crime rate is high, so is the mayor.” Inspired by the former mayor’s crack scandal, it’s a new Canadian-produced movie, which will premier March 25. The movie trailer boasts it was “inspired by true” events and has a classic line: “There’s a video of the mayor smoking crack.” It’s an exaggerated story line with guns and shootings but the part about a crack video on a cellphone certainly is not make believe. His widow doubts Rob Ford would have cared. “I don’t think so,” said Renata Ford said. “There were so many videos out there that were not good that I doubt this one would make a difference.” What could ever top the “crack smoking” video? Rob’s brother Doug however, is furious, saying the movie was made by “scumbags” who are “taking advantage of someone who was ill for profit” and “who misrepresented who Rob was and what did happen.”
