Momentum for Leo's Oscar win has been building for weeks now. So much so that an Irish Facebook group was made under the name, "If Leo wins the Oscar, everyone meet at the Spire."

Now, even with our own small parties, times and places can get muddled up and it can be a big mess, but one man made his mess public… to 15,000 people.

Joe.ie noticed that poor Ian Colton showed up at the Spire in Dublin this morning at 6am, only to be left alone in the cold.

Understandably, he was a bit annoyed and wrote on the FB group, "Lads WTF? I was there by myself since it was announced?"

But then Ian realised his mix-up when one woman commented, "doesn't it start at 6pm?" Ooops!

We're still feeling for the poor lad, he must have been freezing standing at the Spire all alone. Don't worry Ian, we'll all be there later. 



Hurrah! Leo DiCarprio has finally won his first Oscar.

After four previous attempts, the Revenant star picked up the gong for Best Actor… while leaving his Titanic co-star, Kate Winslet in tears.

She was one of the first to congratulate him as he took to the stage after his name was called out, and while he gave his speech, Kate was seen with tears rolling down her face.

And while we're all delighted Leo won his award, his speech was something no one expected. He spoke about climate change.

"Making The Revenant was about man's relationship to the natural world…climate change is real,' said Leo.

"It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.

"Let us not take our planet for granted," he concluded. "I do not take tonight for granted."

Yes, we know it's a bg issue but we didn't expect him to get down to it on the biggest night of his life.

But, sure look, we're over the moon for him. 



Last week. Johnny Depp took some time out of his Black Mass Oscar buzz to rock it in Hollywood.

The actor joined his bandmates from Hollywood Vampires on stage at the LA hotspot, Roxy.

The actor hung back onstage with understated control of his instrument, allowing band members Cooper and Perry to have the limelight, while he played in the background.

There were many surprise guests on the night, including Marilyn Manson, who pulled the actor to the front of the stage. Later the rocker lulled Johnny in and kissed his neck, leaving a very noticeable  mark on Johnny for the rest of the concert.

Later, Kesha made an additional cameo, taking the stage in a black coat and top hat, wowing the crowd with her rendition of Whole Lotta Love.

The band bounced around from playing frontman Cooper’s own songs to John Lennon to Black Sabbath to the Doors and more.


She's had a load of different hair styles over the years: long and flowing, or short and cropped, Jennifer has sported everything from chocolate brunette hues to sun-kissed light tresses.

But now the 25-year-old Oscar-winner has really gone all out: dyeing her hair a bright and brilliant platinum blonde.

Fans spotted her new look during the filming of sci-fi thriller, Passengers, which she is currently shooting with Chris Pratt in Atlanta.

And while she had also been seen out jogging with her dog last Sunday – hints of light blonde strands peaking out from under her baseball cap – this is the first time that we've been given a decent viewing of Jennifer's oh-so amazing peroxide hair. 

Ms Lawrence is being paid a cool €18m for Passengers – twice what Mr Pratt was able to negotiate.

Due to be released next year, it is being directed by Morten Tyldum – who received an Oscar nominated last year for his work on The Imitation Game.



It has been revealed that Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett has welcomed a baby girl into her family.

Cate is currently doing press tours for her role as the evil step-mother in Disney's adaption of Cinderella which we cannot wait to see!

Congratulations to Cate and her family on their wonderful new addition – we bet her three older brothers will be very protective of little Vivienne as she grows up!

Matthew McConaughey can’t wait to sink his teeth into roles that ‘turn him on’ following his Oscar win.

The 44-year-old actor won an Academy Award for his role in Dallas Buyers Club earlier this year and ever since, the offers have been pouring in!

When asked what had changed since winning his Oscar, he said, ”People respond ‘yes’ to RSVPs more often and more quickly.”

The actor added, ”What has really changed is that I am getting more scripts, I’ve got more choices which is great coming off of that. If anything it’s giving me more opportunities, more things to choose from, which I’m embracing.

”And in the middle of getting much more I can more easily now personally ask myself ‘what do I want to do that turns me on? What experience am I going to get out of it?’ So yeah I am getting a lot of things.”
