Well, in the newest emails to leak, Aaron Sorkin has said some pretty awful things about men versus women in Hollywood.

Specifically when it comes to the Oscars, he believes that it's easier to win an Academy Award for a woman than it is for a man.

And in today's "wait… what?" news: Transformers: Age of Extinction has launched a Best Picture Oscar campaign.

How did we miss this??

If you're wondering why that movie would be gunning for Best Picture, you're not alone. It's obviously got Best Picture on lock, so why bother with a campaign? LOLz!!

Movie studio Paramount Pictures has started with "For Your Consideration" ads trying to sway Academy members to vote for their films.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is vying for not only Best Picture, but also Best Director (Michael Bay), Best Adapted Screenplay (Ehren Kruger) and Best Original Song (Imagine Dragons - Battle Cry).

There are other Paramount films we feel have a slightly better shot at Best Picture, like maybe Interstellar perhaps??

Sure, the fourth Transformers movie made $1 billion in worldwide ticket sales but is that enough to earn the respect of The Academy?

Our prediction is no, no it won't, but hey, that's just our opinion.

Does Transformers: Age of Extinction deserve the Oscar for Best Picture?

There's no doubt about it — Hailee Steinfeld was born to act.

To the Steinfield's credit, she was chosen out of a whopping 15,000 girls for the role of Mattie Ross, a feat which earned her an Oscar nom for Best Supporting Actress.

Not too bad for a 13-year-old girl!

Though the fashionista didn't win the Oscar, she went on to become the face of Miu Miu and she starred alongside Mark Ruffalo in the flick Begin Again.

Shoot, girl is on fire!

Check out Hailee's talent in her first big role (below)!

Kathy Bates May Have Been Surprised About Her Emmy Win, But You May Be Surprised Who She Almost Dedicated It To!

kathy bates almost dedicated her emmy win to robin williams

This is such a sweet story!

Kathy Bates was a surprised as anyone when she beat Julia Roberts to win the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A TV Miniseries Or Movie, but it was very well deserved!

What surprises us, however, is that the American Horror Story actress was thisclose to dedicating her win to the late Robin Williams!

Were they secret friends or something??

Well, Kathy revealed an anecdote about her encounter with Robin afterwards, explaining why she wanted to do it.

She said:

'When I won my first major award for Misery — a Golden Globe — they didn't have cell phones and I was waiting at a pay phone to call my mother afterward and I didn't have a quarter. I turned around and asked, and Robin said, 'Here's a quarter to call your mother.'

[When I lost the Oscar] He came to me and said, 'I really wished I could have had your name in the envelope; are you OK? I know how hard it is to lose.' He was so kind to me.

I never forgot that kindness. I almost wanted to say, 'Look, I own this time and this is for you,' but I was just so … nervous'

Awww! That would have been such a heartwarming thing to do!

But we're glad she decided to share the story of Robin's kindness anyway!

Congrats to Kathy on her win!
