I'm just glad that Britney didn't wear that horrible cowboy hat to church ... altho her Sunday best doesn't seem quite up to churchy standards. Whatevs, I suppose it's cool that she's keeping up with her religious practices. Keep prayin', Brit ... I'm prayin' for you too! [Source]
In other parts of the world, it's Oscar time! Tonight the 78th Annual Academy Awards are being held in Hollywood, California and the Kodak Theater is getting all gussied up for the big event. Pink reader Donna snapped some fun pictures of the Kodak Theater as decorations get erected at the theater:

Not only are the decorations going up outside the theater but preparations are taking place inside the theater as well. Check out these pictures of Jon Stewart as he gets himself ready for his big night of hosting the Academy Awards:
Duuuuude ... homeboy looks worried! Shoot, I bet he's freaking the eff out. The Oscars are huge! Here's hopin' he don't screw it uppppp. [Source]
Dolly Parton looks a lot less stressed out as she prepares for her performance at the Academy Awards tonight:
I love her! Dolly Parton is an icon ... I think it's really cool that she's nominated for an Academy Award this year for Best Original Song. It won't be long now ... soon the winners will be announced and there will be some very happy (and very sad) people in Hollywood. [Source]
The Independent Spirit Awards were held in LA last night and a whole slew of my favorites won awards. Felicity Huffman took the award for Best Female Lead and she looked amazing at the event:
I am really pulling for Felicity to win the Academy Award for Best Actress tonight but I'm so glad she won the Independent Spirit Award. Brokeback Mountain took the top prize last night when it was named Best Film of the year. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Brokeback will take this momentum into the Oscars tonight. [Source]
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen showed up at the Independent Spirit Awards and ... they decided to wear a couple of interesting outfits:
I don't get the leather jacket that Ashley is wearing but she don't look too terrible. Mary-Kate looks ridiculous in her black gowny thing. She's even wearing gothy black nailpolish and everything ... I guess I just don't get it. [Source]
In other awards news, the Soul Train Music Awards were held in Pasedena, CA last night and Mariah Carey picked up 2 more awards -- Best Female Single and Best Female Album:
Mariah Carey kept her comeback going Saturday, picking up best album and best single honors at the 20th Annual Soul Train Music Awards ... Carey, who won three Grammys last month, nabbed awards for best female album with "The Emancipation of Mimi" and best female single with "We Belong Together." "This has been the biggest and most successful year of my life," said Carey, who returned last year after dominating the pop charts for much of the 1990s. I'm not sure why she was ready to suck face with Kimora Lee Simmons but if that's what it takes to win an award then more power to her. Note that Mimi had to refer to her BlackBerry to get her acceptance speech right. John Legend also won 2 Soul Train Music Awards for Best Male Album and Best Male Single.

Brangelina and co. are taking the show on the road, here are pictures of Les Jolie-Pitts on their way to Germany:
It's a bummer that they won't be making an appearance at the Academy Awards tonight but it seems to me that they're not really into that whole scene right now. I mean, hello, look at Angelina's tummy ... she is huuuuge! Just when you thought Ange's boobs couldn't get any larger she goes and balloons up. I love it! [Source]
Adam Brody is on the cover of the new issue of Nylon Guy magazine and he is looking pretty damn cute if I do say so myself:
He's such a normal-looking understated guy. He seems really down to Earth and that has great appeal. This photoshoot is great. [Source]
And finally, here is our Hot Dude of the Week ... let's say hello to Shane:
I realize it's cold outside but I don't think Shane minds being shirtless. I know I don't mind, do you? Enjoy!!! [Source]
