Leonardo DiCaprio To Receive A Russian Academy Award! (Guess They Haven't Seen Total Eclipse!)

Filed under: Leonardo DiCaprioOscarsGIFs

leo gatsby drink russia academy award

Na Zdorovie, Leonardo DiCaprio!

A Russian theater named the Chamber Theater in Chelyabinsk has decided that since Leo didn't win an Oscar this past Sunday, they would send him a Russian Oscar of their own.

That's right, they're shipping a man named Oscar who they painted gold all the way to America! JK! They're sending him a cast-iron statuette!

No word yet on whether you can open this Russian Oscar to find an even tinier Russian Oscar inside though.

Not only that, but they made Leo an honorary member of their troupe, offered to let him see any show he wants for free, and even invited to let him perform in any of their productions.

According to the theater's spokesman Yury Sychev, they'd start Leo off easy:

Jared Leto's Oscars Acceptance Speech Censored For Russian TV?? See His Offending Statement HERE And Judge For Yourself!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitikJared LetoOscars

jared leto oscars acceptance speech russia ukraine censored

One of the most moving moments at this year's Oscars was Best Supporting Actor Jared Leto's acceptance speech.

The Dallas Buyers Club star not only paid homage to his mother and brother, he also sent out love to those suffering in the Ukraine. He said:

"To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight in places like the Ukraine and Venezuela, I want to say we are here, as you struggle to make your dreams happen, to live the impossible, we're thinking of you tonight."

But on Russia's broadcast of the awards ceremony, those comments were conspicuously absent! So did Russian censors chop out the part of the speech they didn't like?

The Sochi Closing Ceremony Ring Joke Was Flawless! Watch Them Poke Fun At Themselves Over The Opening Fiasco!

Filed under: Silly!ZportzOlympicsGIFs

sochi closing ceremony olympic rings joke

We didn't expect this!!

When we sat down to watch the Sochi Olympic Closing Ceremony, we figured we'd get the usual amount of spectacle on-par with the Opening Ceremony — we might've even been waiting for a mistake or two, but assumed there would be no way they'd let that happen.

As it turns out… they DID let it happen! On purpose!

At one point during the closing ceremony, the performers formed the Olympic rings and one of the them didn't open! It was just like the Opening ceremony, except this time Russia did it on purpose!

Amazing!

The nod to their original mistake was a great humanizing way to play with the world's expectations, and it was everything!

Despite all the water/stray dog/hotel issues, we'd say Sochi's Olympics went off better than everyone thought they would!

That still doesn't change how they treat the LGBT community, though.

Pussy Riot Arrested & Thrown In Russian Jail AGAIN! What They Did In Sochi That Got Them Locked Up!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitikOlympicsGIFs

pussy riot jailed again wenn doodle

Two members of the Russian punk rock band Pussy Riot were arrested yet AGAIN today!

Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, who after being released from prison last year have quickly become the stars of the Pussy Riot movement, were detained on Tuesday in central Sochi!

With the Winter Olympic games going on right next door, the women were accused of a theft at Hotel Adler before police used extreme force to apprehend them! According to eyewitnesses, the arrest was EXTREMELY violent!

Tolokonnikova's husband, Petr Verzilov was there and described just how bad the situation got, saying:

"They were put to the floor and beaten and physical force was used to them when they refused to be questioned without the presence of their lawyer, who was on his way to the police department.”

Later, the girls posted pictures of themselves behind bars on Twitter (below), along with tweets describing their ordeal. Nadezhda explained:

"Unbelievable lawlessness, even we are amazed. Beat on the floor of the department, in the Olympic capital!”

Another tweet exclaimed:

"They dragged me on the floor in the hall of the department, hands tied behind back and thrown to the floor. Putin will teach you to love the motherland!”

That last line is also the title of a song that Pussy Riot members are in town to record in order to spread awareness about the social injustices being carried out by President Vladimir Putin and Russian law enforcement.

Both Nadezhda and Maria were eventually released from jail and Russian police say they are no longer considered suspects in this crime.

Well good, because we need you girls out spreading the word about what’s going on in Russia!

Jail them all you want! Pussy Riot will not rest until their country is TRULY free!

Second Giraffe On Death Row Is Getting Offers To Go To A Zoo To Be "Saved?" Where Should He Go??

Filed under: ZooCrazzzzyGiraffe

The Chechen President and two members of the Moscow Circus have offered to save the second Marius!

Ever since word got out that a second giraffe, who shares the same name as a previously murdered giraffe, was possibly going to be killed at a Danish zoo, people started going nuts.

All sorts of offers to save him started flooding in, along with threats and petitions to not kill the beautiful creature.

Jyllands Park Zoo, current host of Marius the giraffe (the living one), assured everyone that unless a female giraffe was brought in for breeding purposes, Marius would be safe.

But that still means if a female giraffe shows up, they're gonna kill the hell outta Marius.

Thankfully, the Chechen President, Ramzan Kadyrov, has offered to save the giraffe, saying:

Chobani Yogurt Banned From Sochi Olympics Is Being Given To The Homeless, But Even They Don't Want It!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueNew YorkFoodCharityOlympics

chobani yogurt not getting any love at new york shelters

It looks like Ann Curry and stray dogs aren't the only ones not welcome at the Sochi Olympics!!

Last week, we mentioned that a HUGE shipment of Chobani Yogurt heading to Russia was stalled in New York after they failed to get the proper food and health certifications!

Well the next logical step was to donate the 5,000 plus containers of the snacks to local food shelters and soup kitchens. The only problem is not everyone has a taste for the greek yogurt!

Food Bank For New York City worker Debbie Torres says:
