    Why are they touching each other like that? Lame.

  • jinx

    Why is halle Berry doing this? She will never ever win another Oscar. Where is kate Winslet? Does Halle berry even make movies anymore? I mean, good movies.

  • jinx

    Ben Affleck too << worst Actor alive

  • dundies

    mmm

  • angel

    Gorgeous talented women. Love both!

  • lame

    @jinx:

    I couldn’t agree more, not just the worst actress today, but she doesn’t even deserve that award for her 10 minutes dirty porn scene, seriously.

  • Rhonda

    There’s barely enough good movies out there to award anybody anything! waste of time, who cares!

  • Elin Nordgren

    Halle looks like a 22 year old next to Penelope.

  • andres

    Penelope is not cute anymore.

  • lilli pilli

    Penelope only looks good in bikinis and low cut dresses, very ordinary in normal gear, then again that is why Halle wears plunging necklines, to take away from her bandy legs, they are beyond bad even in pants.

  • lexy

    They are both great and talented actresses. Nice to see to positive minority role models.

  • BEN IS NOT A LOSER…!!

    LILLI PILLI

    NICE SAYING THAT PEN LOOKS NICE IN A BIKINI LOW CUT DRESSES ..THAT IS WHAT THEY WEAR TO THE OSCARS
    AND AWARD SHOWS FREAK O LILLI. And Ben is not a bad
    actor either.. not like the losers we have this year like the
    PRECIOUS MOVIE… ALL THE NOMINEES ARE LOSERS AND BAD
    ACTORS ONLY NOMINATED BECAUSE THEY NEED THE BLACK
    VOTE.. NO BEN IS LEAVING THE MOVIE INDUSTRY FOR NEXT
    YEAR SO BE HAPPY… LOSERS ARE THE NOMINEES FOR THIS
    YEAR … LIKE JEFF BRIDGES AND WOODY HARRELSON ARE THE
    BIGGEST LOSER OF THEM ALL.

  • Diego

    I love them both, they’re both soooooo hot and they are terrific actresses too!!!

    I love Halle
    I love Penelope!!!!!

    I’ll definitely be tuning in tonite

  • vanessa

    what resturant are they at again?

  • cacey

    Halle is DEFINITELY PREGOS, just remember i broke the news here.

  • http://JUSTJARED candy

    WHY ARE WE STILL LOOKING THIS NO TALENT PERSON(HALLE) JUST WANT TO BE SEEN, TRYING TO EXPLAIN HER PAID SPERM DONOR, AND THAT SHE ONLY CARES ABOUT HER DAUGHTER, WANT UNTIL THIS CHILD FIND OUT HER NUTTY MOHTER ONLY CARES ABOUT HER SELF. NOT THE GAY BOYFRIEND, AND WHY IS SHE TALKING ABOUT THAT HARRIBLE MOVIE? NOW TO THE GOOD STUFF, HALLE IS OLD LOOKING WITH A POUND OF MAKEUP ON, YOU CAN SEE SHE HAS ON TO MUCH. SHE IS BEGGING FOR ATTENTION. IF SHE COULD ACT SHE WOULD HAVE OUR ATTENTION. BLACK WOMEN STILL HAVE NOT WON THE OSCAR AS OF YET.

  • Jonathan

    Halle, Halle, Halle! We all know that you begged Oprah to be on this Oscar Special to inform the “public” that you are happy with your so called male friend. You stole Penelope Cruz’s spotlight to respond to comments on celebrity gossip site about you and your gay fake ass boyfriend and child you wanted just because you are in para-menopause,…no excuse me, in menopause and can’t have a kid at 57! You STILL look miserable, mean, boring, and YOU ARE NOT FUNNY! Nothing about you is funny. The only thing that was funny was your real life sex scene with Billy Bob <—who should have won the Oscar in most people’s opinion. Halle, leave the general public alone about your mother’s abuse, your so called abuse, and your horrible movies (“Catwoman”) that cost the studios over 10 million dollars!

  • http://JUSTJARED POPS

    wow, look at all those wrinkles, on both of them, damn, halle has a long nose, crazy eyes, and her head is long like frankinstein, please, she not attractive, the other one is just as ugly. is this the only talent they have in hollywood, that is why they loose so much money. why is halle on this. she is really pathetic. talking about a movie that was degrading, who wanted to see those saggy breast and flat ass. ANGELA BASSETT WAS RIGHT, ALL THE WAY, HALLE HAS NOT ACTING SKILLS AT ALL, AND OPRAH SHOULD HURRY UP OF TV, SHE IS JUST AS STUPID AS HALLE, ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT HALLE’S LOOKS. OPRAH IS STILL AN IRNORANT BLACK WOMEN, STUCK BACK WITH OLD ASS IRNORANT WAYS, BECAUSE HALLE IS LIGHTSKIN OPRAH MAKES A BIG DEAL, YOU NEVER SEE OPRAH SAYING HOW BEAUTIFUL DARKSKIN ACTRESSS OR THEIR KID’S ARE. OPRAH YOU ARE A SALE OUT, OLD DRAGEQUEEN. B…..CH.

  • Bobbie

    HEY Oprah – Girl you really need to tell me what shop you got that wing because I need to know the number. Is it 1B japanese silk or 1 Hawiian silky silks?

  • http://JUSTJARED FATSO OPRAH

    HI OPRAH, WHY IN HELL DID YOU HAVE THAT SHOW? I AGREE WITH @POPS, PLEASE LEAVE TV, YOU ARE NOT INTERESTING, IT SHOWS NOW, HALLE, WHY? OPRAH IS BEHIND TIMES, NOT CURRENT ANYMORE, WHO TALK’S ABOUT HALLE? I AGREE WITH SOME PEOPLE CALLING OPRAH A MAMMY. MY KIND MADE ME WATCH, I WANTED TO THROUGH UP, BUT I COULD NOT SAY ANYTHING, SHE WANTED TO SEE MICHAEL DOUGLAS. HIM I LIKE.

  • Bobbie

    @Bobbie: I meant wig…it’s a long night

  • http://JUSTJARED janet

    what was that show about, both women sound stupid, exspecially halle, has not made a movie worth talking about. I agree with everyone else just wanted to be seen. there are more interesting black women in hollywood then halle, why can’t Oprah see that, are is Oprah JEALOUS.

  • http://JUSTJARED karen

    I just think the interview with ponelope and halle was so boring, and what’s with the look ponelope is giving in the picture’s, but we know what it means, ponelope is saying “this b..tch thinks this is still a beauty pagent, how dumb,lol” it was boring, Oprah please do us all a favor go away with those ugly wigs.

  • AJ

    Why the heck was Halle on this show?? She was as awful an interviewer as she is an actress! Just awful! The idiot talked about herself more than Penelope. The look on Penelope’s face the whole time was priceless! lol

  • ……..wow…………..

    Wow that was a really awkward interview. penelope looked really uncomfortable with her interviewer. Halle needs to spend her time on some acting lessons rather than interviewing people. Her career has been over for a long while now.

  • WTF Jonathan/Candy

    @Jonathan/Candy and whatever other aliases you’re using: (Halle) She didn’t mention the gay pseudo sperm donor at all–in fact she practically told on herself that he’s not going to be in the picture much longer, if he even still is, only for photo ops.

  • http://JUSTJARED justplaindamn

    DID YOU SEE PENELOPE FACE, THAT DAMN HALLE IS TALKING ABOUT HERSELF LIKE SHE IS A ACTRESS, LOL, AND TAKING AWAY PENELOPE TIME. IT LOOKED LIKED PENELOPE FOUND OUT IN THE INTERVIEW THAT THIS B..CH HAS A MENTAL PROBLEM. LOL, PENELOPE FOUND OUT LATE, WE ALL KNOW IT ALREADY. I AGREE WITH #26 ALL THE WAY. THAT INTERVIEW WAS SO NOT INTERESTING, JUST WHEN PENELOPE GAVE HALLE THOSE SHADY LOOKS.

  • http://JUSTJARED justplaindamn

    PS, LOOK AT THE PICTURE WHERE THEY ARE TOUCHING EACH, PENELOPE IS FAKING IT, AND HALLE IS SCARY LOOKING, AS SHE AGE SHE IS LOOKING LIKE A MAN.

  • http://JUSTJARED ALERT

    SOMEONE MUST ALERT NICOLE MURPHY THAT HALLE IS TRYING TO COPY HER LOOK, BUT HALLE IS SHORT AND SCARY LOOKING. AND NICOLE MURPHY JUST CAN’T BE COPIED, LOOK AT THOSE BREAST, LONG LEGS, AND STYLE, HALLE IS SHORT, BOTOX IN THE FOREHEAD, AND MAY BE CHANGING INTO A MAN, NICOLE HAS FIVE KIDS, COPY THAT HALLE. NOT WOMEN ENHOUGH.

  • Alexa

    Jeremy Renner! LOVE him. So glad he got recognized for his performance in The Hurt Locker.

  • http://JUSTJARED sharon

    I was glad to see a real oscar winner like M.Douglas, because halle needs to give her back, they just gave it to her to shout up the black people from complaining, so they made it worst, they gave to someone with no talent to make black people really mad. but that’s ok, we are still waiting. halle could not even act through the interview, but penelope did, did you see her face, lol, she was looking like, “why is halle here. lol.

  • really

    I like penelope cruz, love her spanish films, and she is an actress.

    as for miss I cant act (halle), she should sit down, her and beyawnce… both are just overrated, and NOT NATURAL.

    she just looks crazy.

  • SMH

    You people on this site need to get a life for real. All some of you do is sit around talking sh*t about people. Halle Berry won the Oscar because she had the best performance that year, I guess all the other acting awards she has gotten are bogus too? Both her and Penelope are lovely women and are good actresses..while some of you sit around worshipping these lame actors from “Twighlight”. Give it a rest. Some of you must live miserable lives.

  • http://JUSTJARED vanessa

    THIS IS TO @SMH, YOU GET A LIFE, OUR OPINION MATTER JUST AS MUSH AS YOUR KISS ASS OPINION, YOU JUST LIVE IN A GRAY MATTER WORLD, CAN’T YOU TAKE THE TRUTH FROM THE PUBLIC, PENELOPE IS A BETTER ACTRESS THAN THE NO TALENT HALLE, AND YES, SHE DOES LOOK CRAZY, DON’T YOU KNOW A FIX WHEN YOU SEE ONE, THE OSCAR SPEECH WAS LAUGHABLE AND SHE IS A NEUROTIC(HALLE). WE LIVE FABUBLOUS LIVES. @SMH, WHAT ABOUT YOUR DULL MISERABLE LIFE, ARE YOU SMOKING CRACK? CAN’T SEE LIFE CLEARLY.LOL

  • http://JUSTJARED WARNING

    NICOLE SCHERZINGER NATURAL BEAUTY, HALLE BERRY DRAGQUEEN, AS SHE AGE.

  • premise of show

    Other than feeding Oprah’s ego and another way for her to live vicariously through others, was having past Oscar winners interview some of this year’s nominees .

    Didn’t see the whole show in it’s entirety so I can’t comment on all of the other segments so I don’t if the interviewees all interviewed their interviewers?

  • http://dlisted.com lakers fan in boston

    i tried watching this the other day
    it was so boring, it almost looked fake
    and my god, penelope’s face has really gotten worse, stop smoking!

  • http://thepopulist.net The Populist

    It was a lame show, but that’s because Penelope Cruz is a stupid b*tch. Halle was trying to be sociable, and she had something to say. Penelope was just sitting there pissed off because she had to share the show with Halle.

  • Laura

    Poor Halle, not one decent role for an amazing actress and she has to schlep promotional images for the sexpot-bimbo and the boston mob creep.
