Before we get to the wonderfulness that is Taylor Kitsch shirtless, can we briefly chat about The Normal Heart? Did you watch Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of Larry Kramer’s award-winning play which aired on HBO Sunday night? The film chronicled the HIV-AIDS epidemic in New York City during the early 80s.

At times it was a little uncomfortable to watch but I absolutely enjoyed it. It was by far Kitsch’s best work to date. Matt Bomer was also a revelation in his role as was Mark Ruffalo. If the latter doesn’t get a Golden Globe or Emmy nod I will be shocked. The weakest link in my opinion was Julia Roberts. It felt a little Erin Brokovich in a wheelchair for my liking. She was definitely miscast. Having said that, I’m sure without her, the film would’ve had a harder time getting made. Weigh in below on your thoughts on the movie.

Kitsch appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week to promote the HBO film. Naturally, up to this point, his best work consisted of the Canadian hunk strutting around shirtless. Being the wise woman that she is, Ellen highlighted the actor’s best moments without a top in one sexy montage. Check it out below.

The “Chandelier” clip has captivated audiences worldwide, instantly becoming a contender for best video for 2014. I can’t get enough of it and have watched it numerous times since its release. Sia amazingly recreates the mesmerizing visual for a live performance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. 11-year-old Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler absolutely slays the intricate contemporary routine again. She’s such an incredible talent.

I’m not sure exactly why Sia performed the entire thing with her back towards the crowd. Even after the performance, she kept her nose to the wall. Is she that painfully shy? She has no problems performing forwards during live gigs and concerts, but for some reason she has issues with television. At least that’s what I’ve read. Check out the clip below.

Hollywood’s two most famous lesbians named Ellen came together this week. Ellen Page dropped by the Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about life after coming out during her impassioned speech at the HRC Gala. The Juno actress also thanked DeGeneres for the talk show host’s trailblazing coming out during “a time where it was much harder and much scarier.” Watch the interview below.

For the past several years, Apple CEO Tim Cook was top dog on OUT Magazine’s annual Power 50 list. For the 2014 edition, the 53-year-old has to settle for the runner-up slot. Ellen DeGeneres has reclaimed the most powerful title from the publication. The daytime talk show host stood at numero uno back in 2010.

“Everybody loves Ellen, and that’s one of the reasons she’s regained the top spot,” OUT writes. The magazine also cites DeGeneres’ epic Oscar selfie which broke the record of most retweeted post ever and briefly crashed Twitter.

For the past eight years, the publication has ranked powerful and prestigious gay men and women who have tremendous influence. The list is compiled of Hollywood power players, publishing magnates, political figures, web entrepreneurs and everything in between. It’s worth nothing Ellen Page who came out recently makes the list for the first time at No. 29. Find out who the LGBT cream of the crop are below.

For the third year in a row, the Oscar telecast rose in ratings. The 86th Annual Academy Awards scored a whopping 43 million viewers and a 12.9 rating among adults 18-49. Last night’s show was the most-watched entertainment telecast in 10 years since NBC’s 2004 Friends finale, not including a sporting event. The Oscars generated far more than recent high-profile awards shows including the Golden Globes and Grammys which drew 22.1 million and 14.5 million viewers respectively.

12 Years A Slave snatched Best Picture honors but Gravity was the biggest winner in terms of most wins. The Sandra Bullock film won seven Oscars. It comes just behind Cabaret, which won eight statues as the film to win the most categories without taking Best Picture. On the flip side, American Hustle walked away with nothing despite receiving 10 nominations. The David O’Russell film is tied for second with Gangs of New York and True Grit for most nominations with no win. The record holders are The Turning Point and The Color Purple with 11 nods but no hardware.

If I could crash only one Oscar party, it’d be a tough choice between Elton John’s gala or Vanity Fair’s shindig. There’s plenty of star power at each event and no doubt tasty eats and delicious cocktails. However, after checking out Vanity Fair’s Instagram account, I’m leaning towards theirs.

Several attendees posed for the publication’s photobooth under the watchful eye of photographer Mark Seliger. Donatella Versace posed with her latest celeb ambassadors, Lady Gaga and Nolan Gerard Funk, for a stunning photo that could easily pass for an official campaign pic. Other standouts include Selena Gomez, Naomi Watts, Neil Patrick Harris and of course, the queen of the night, Miss Lupita Nyong’o. Check out a few below.

It’s become somewhat of a tradition now. Whenever an engaged lady visits Ellen DeGeneres, the daytime talk show host bestows a sexy gift to her guest. Why Sofia Vergara only received one strapping stud instead of multiple men is a crime. The Modern Family actress and viewers want (and deserve) more.

As much as I love buff guys gyrating their hips with no shirt, the highlight of Sofia’s visit was a commercial she filmed with Ellen. The two ladies are both CoverGirl models but have never appeared in the same ad… until now. The duo participated in a hilarious faux ad for the German market. It reminded me somewhat of SNL’s vintage Sprockets sketches. Check it out below, along with Sofia’s bachelorette striptease.

Happy 60th Birthday Oprah Winfrey

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan

One of the most powerful women in the world turns the big 6-0 today. Happy Birthday Oprah.

Given that it’s a milestone birthday, one would think a huge birthday bash is in order. Not so. Reportedly, the billionaire media entrepreneur will have a “quiet dinner” in the seaside town of Montecito. Definitely a far cry from her 50th birthday. That came with a televised bash, celebrity friends, high-profile luncheon and a black-tie dinner. Supposedly, she nixed her initial plans to throw a gigantic blow out party because the guest list got out of control. I guess you can have too many friends ;)

“The 6-0 number, I’ve always said to people to own it. Even I, who has said to women all these years, own it, own it, own it, took a pause for that.” - O told CBS News last year.

Even though she’s not hosting a grand celebration, that didn’t stop Ellen DeGeneres from giving the former daytime talk show host a gift. What to give the woman who has everything? A huge sequined self portrait of course. DeGeneres even called Winfrey to talk about it during her show. Their conversation was wonderfully strange. Obviously, it was fake, but still an entertaining watch.
