The Rundown: Week of Feb. 25

  • Practice doesn’t always make perfect. Viewers are criticizing Anne Hathaway for her Best Supporting Actress acceptance speech at the Oscars. Instead of offering a heartfelt acceptance of the gold statue, Hathaway spent her precious time at the podium thanking a laundry list of people. Sources report Hathaway had practiced her speech to avoid criticism. Given that Hathaway’s performance in “Les Miserables” reduces people to tears, it’s too bad she can’t perform her own material nearly as well.
  • Quentin Tarantino won Best Original Screenplay at the Oscars, and for once he tried to accept the award humbly. There’s a first for everything. In his efforts to thank the cast of “Django Unchained,” Tarantino ended up congratulating himself for casting the actors in the first place. Classy.
  • ABC announced the cast for the newest season of “Dancing With the Stars.” After 15 seasons, the show is having a hard time finding big names to sacrifice weeks of their lives for intense dance rehearsals. The new season will feature D.L. Hughley, Ingo Rademacher, Lisa Vanderpump, Andy Dick and more. If you’re about to start searching the names on Google, don’t worry — no one else knows who they are, either.
  • Shia LaBeouf is leaving the Broadway show “Orphans” because of “creative differences.” Those creative differences, however, might be linked to co-star Alec Baldwin, according to email exchanges between LaBeouf and the show’s director, which were released online. The director allegedly wrote that Baldwin and LaBeouf are “incompatible.” Forget “Orphans” — LaBeouf should get started on a “Transformers” musical.
  • This season of the reality show where a dozen women fight to marry their dream guy is coming to a close. “Bachelor” Sean Lowe has narrowed down his selection of potential soul mates to two women. One major twist of the season? Lowe is a born-again virgin. (He probably picked the wrong reality show.) The future train wreck of a relationship will end, most likely, in a proposal next week.
  • The Oscars were full of random presenters this year. Hi, Michelle Obama. Somebody also invited “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart, recipient of several Razzies this weekend, to introduce an award. Stewart presented with “Harry Potter” star Daniel Radcliffe, and even though the introduction could have been filled with funny banter between “Harry Potter” and “Twilight,” the actors played it straight. It was a good call, because Stewart would have made all the banter way too awkward.
