14 Cringeworthy Kisses Of The Day

TV and movie lip-locks that made you squirm. And not in a good way.

Chosen by readers of EW.com.

LUKE & LEIA
The Empire Strikes Back

Aren't they brother and sister? They may not have known it at the time, but George Lucas did. Ew.

ANGELINA JOLIE & JAMES HAVEN
2000 Academy Awards

See above.

ADRIEN BRODY
& HALLE BERRY
2003 Academy Awards

Can you blame him? Well, one EW.com reader does: ''I HATED that kiss! Just because a woman is pretty and you’re a horny movie star doesn't mean you get to grab her and kiss her without her agreement. I wanted her to knee him in the balls.'' —TM

MERYL STREEP
& SANDRA BULLOCK
2010 Critics Choice Awards

Right about now, Meryl's praying she didn't catch anything

BRITNEY SPEARS, CHRISTINA AGUILERA
& MADONNA
2003 MTV Video Music Awards

Watching anybody kiss Madonna makes me gag.

JACK TORRANCE & BATHTUB LADY
The Shining

Everything was fine until she stayed in the tub a little too long. Like, 100 years.

MICHAEL JACKSON
& LISA-MARIE PRESLEY
1994 MTV Video Music Awards

From EW.com readers: "Not a 'thriller', just creepy." "Even remembering it grosses me out."

RALPH MACCHIO
& ELISABETH SHUE
The Karate Kid

Yes. Great movie but those two had zero chemistry. Zero.

AL
& TIPPER GORE
2000 Democratic Convention

An inconvenient truth: you two have to kiss each other. Urp.

Popbitch's Oscar Picks 2011

From Popbitch.com.



The Oscars are coming up, and the nominations are no surprise. It’s the usual crop of heavily promoted ‘legitimate’ movies up for all the awards, with scant regard to the fact that other films were actually released last year too.

Not being ones to let the little guy go unnoticed, we’ve compiled our own list of people and films who are just as deserving of an Oscar as ‘English-actor-playing-aristocracy’ in Serious-Film-About-Overcoming-Adversity.



BEST ACTOR
Danny Trejo -- Machete
Just because it’s Danny Trejo and he deserves an Oscar

BEST ACTRESS
Kelly Hu – The Tournament
Mainly because she’s really hard and an Oscar statuette would probably double up as a neat weapon if anyone jumped her.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Steven Seagal -- Machete
Again, it’s about time.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Ashley C. Williams -- The Human Centipede
She was the one in the middle -- give her a break.


BEST COSTUMES

Michael Wilkinson -- TRON: Legacy
Because all-in-ones have never been so cool.


BEST DIRECTOR

Alexandre Aja -- Piranha 3D
Because he managed to treat the subject matter with the respect it deserved. In the hands of a lesser director it could have been exploitative.

BEST DOCUMENTARY
The Lovers’ Guide 3D -- Igniting Desire
It’s in 3D -- so now it’s even easier to learn how to have sex!

BEST EDITING
The BBFC -- I Spit on Your Grave & A Serbian Film
For sheer hard work.

BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
22 Bullets [L'immortel]
Because it was the best foreign language film made this year. Well it had loads of gunfights in it anyway.



BEST ORIGINAL SONG
‘Frozen Skies’ from Mega Piranha, by Tiffany
We haven’t even heard it yet, but they went to the effort of recording an original song for a film called Mega Piranha -- that’s enough for us.

BEST PICTURE
Machete
Obviously.

BEST SOUND MIXING
The robot dance in Step Up 3D
Because it makes our bums feel all funny.



BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY

Machete
“Machete don’t text.”

We’ve emailed the Oscars people with our list and a five quid bribe to change the nominations. Fingers crossed.
