J-Law's winning streak continues.
Jennifer Lawrence picked up a BAFTA (kind of like the British Oscars) for her role in American Hustle this week, but missed the ceremony due to filming. Still, the always-prepared actress had a speech ready, and Hustle director David O. Russell was there to read it for her.
Onto the Oscars!
Johnny Weir's Not Afraid of Russia
In case you couldn't tell, Johnny Weir is most definitely not intimidated by Russia.
The fabulously dressed figure skating commentator for the 2014 Sochi Olympics told the Today show that he has no fear of Russia's anti-gay laws.
"I've trained here, I've stayed and sort of lived here for extended periods of time," he said. "I'm not afraid of Russia. I've never had one bad homophobic experience here."

Is it true love? E Online reports that Hough was walking hand in hand with Canadian hockey player Brooks Laich during a hike on Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles. It may not be very patriotic of her during these contentious Olympic times, but congrats to Hough anyway!
Krispy Kreme Goes Coffee-Flavored
Who needs coffee and a donut when you can easily just combine the two?
Krispy Kreme was thinking smartly when they decided to launch a Mocha Kreme-flavored donut and a Caramel Coffee Kreme-flavored donut this month. Oh, and don't forget the Lotta Latte donuts, too! The specialty flavors will be available until March 30, which is probably enough time to get everyone through this everlasting winter with a little extra pep in their step.
Canadian Bobsledder Bathes in a Garbage Can
Canadian Bobsledder Heather Moyse was inspired by Sesame Street's Oscar the Grouch while in Sochi and has decided to live in a garbage can from now on.
Errr, scratch that. She was actually just taking an epsom salt bath to soothe her muscles. She tweeted that there are no bathtubs in the Olympic Village, so she got creative with a garbage can.
