Harvey Weinstein, a big Hollywood producer and a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, made a statement on Wednesday that's causing a bit of a stir in the film community.
He and Leonardo DiCaprio were together at a function in New York, and Harvey made a speech that included this tidbit:
"As an Academy member, you're not supposed to endorse anyone up for an Academy Award, but I have to say Leo DiCaprio is so amazing in The Revenant. His devoztion and the way he rolls it all up into something beautiful is amazing. I've never worked with anyone who's so wonderful and so classy."
Nice words, but as a member of the Academy, he's not supposed to say anything that could be seen as an endorsement.
And even with his disclaimer at the start of the statement, how can you not see this as him saying he wants Leo to win an Oscar for Best Actor?
Let's see if this controversy gets any bigger.
Meanwhile, in case you haven't seen the movie, here's what all the buzz is about...
Almost two months to the day that Kristin Cavallari's brother Michael Cavallari was found dead in Utah three miles from where his car was wrecked, the police have revealed his cause of death. Kristin Cavallari's brother's death was accidental and caused by hypothermia from exposure to cold temperatures. I'm sure this is a very painful time for their family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.

If you watched The People v. O.J. Simpson Wednesday night, there's a scene that probably stands out to you. The FX series showed the Kardashian children excitedly cheering and chanting the family name as they watched their father read on live television what was then believed to be O.J.'s suicide letter. This scene apparently never happened in real life and the Kardashians are furious about it because it makes them look like they were fame hungry kids. They are happy with how their father is being portrayed but feel they should be left out of it. After all, they were just kids. Hey when you're a celebrity, apparently nothing is off limits!

Ryan Reynolds is opening up about how he and his wife Blake Lively wound up getting together and the story is hilarious! They were just friends when they were filming The Green Lantern together six years ago, but after it wrapped a new flame ignited out of nowhere. In fact, it happened while they were on a double date with other people! Ryan Reynolds said, "About a year after Green Lantern had come and gone and we were both single we went on a double date – she was on a date with another guy and I was on a date with another girl – and it was like the most awkward date for the respective parties because we were just like fireworks coming across." AWKWARD!
