Renee Pays it Forward

Grateful Renée Zellweger bought a $100 gift card for a photographer after he fed her meter while she was stuck in Starbucks. The actress stopped in the coffee bar to use her laptop while shopping in Santa Monica on Wednesday -- but had to wait on a line as a growing pack of paparazzi gathered at the window. An onlooker said: "One snapper noticed the meter maid was coming and her meter had expired, so he put in a coin." Renée -- currently dating Bradley Cooper -- was so grateful that she finally emerged with a gift card for Wenn photographer Milton Smith, with a personal message to say thanks.

"I would not say that it was an oversight . . . Not everybody who passed during the year can be included. That's the unfortunate reality."

Oscar Live Blog

8:30--Let's roll!

8:31--Kind of random beginning w/ the besties

8:31--I LOVE NPH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

8:31--Again, I LOVE NPH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

8:34--The acoustics blow.

11:59--Hold up. Hold the hell up. You drag us through HOURS of this, and you do best picture in 3 seconds? Who the heck planned this?

11:59--The Hurt Locker wins. Great movie. My fave is still Inglourious Basterds, but I loved this, too.

8:35--Don't disappoint us, Alec and Steve (cuz no one wants to do it alone!)

8:37--Why is Plummer not singing Edelweiss?

8:39--Oh no Steve Martin didn't...

8:39--Please God...don't show us your legs, Mo'Nique

8:42--Wow. Nothing is sacred. Lighten up, George.

8:43--And, now we recognize young Hollywood: D-bag alert!

8:45--Please God, Christoph Waltz must win this...


8:51--Ryan Reynolds his hot!

8:52--a quote from someone in my home: "George Clooney is such an asshole."

8:56--You still suck at acting and reading, it seems, Cameron

8:59--I don't care about animated films, but I call "Up" as winner.

9:00--Correct! Umm...can we talk about this guy's ears? Wow...

9:01--I like Amanda Seyfried, but that dress is ridiculous. And, Miley...shut your face. You're a joke.

9:13--SJP--spit out your gum. That's tacky

9:16--Best Screenplay: The Hurt Locker. Well deserved.

9:18--Pretty in Pink became Putrid in Purple. Oh, Molly Ringwald. So bad...

9:21--I forgot how much I love Some Kind of Wonderful, The Breakfast Club, and Pretty in Pink. Such amazing movies. RIP, John Hughes

9:23--And, we should have left it at the movie clips. The stars look like druggies.

9:31--No one cares about animation. Everyone is falling asleep.

9:34--Oh can still get more boring w/ Documentary Short

9:35--Who is this crazy red-headed freak?

9:36--This is torture. How many crappy awards can we string together?

9:38--Is it bad that I just want Ben Stiller to do "blue steel?"

9:43--I can't believe I'm missing the Big Love finale for Star Trek awards...

9:48--I love Rachel McAdams' dress

9:51--this guy's dramatic pauses are ridiculous. Very Tiger-esque

9:55--Lauren Bacall is classic, timeless, and amazing

10:00--Congrats, Mo'Nique. Tyler Perry wears me out. I gotta say, if you would have told me 3 years ago that the Mo'Nique from the WB was going to win an Oscar, I would have bet my condo against that. I would have taken the same bet on those chicks from Sister Sister.

10:10--SJP's dress is horrendous. As is her hair.

10:12--What is on her head?

10:12--Charlize's dress is way too "Tune in Tokyo" for me.

10:19--Kristen Stewart has horrible posture

10:27--Bathroom break. Sound awards.

10:28--Love Elizabeth Banks' dress

10:38--The top of Demi's dress is very unflattering. Spillover or boobage--whatever--it looks bad

10:42--very classy death montage. Well done, James Taylor

10:46--is that side thingy on J.Lo's dress where Marc Anthony sits?

10:48--Where's Randy Jackson? Am I watching America's Best Dance Crew?

10:55--Could they have picked two bigger hotties to present the visual effects award? Yumsky.

11:07--I totally have my Snuggie on like Steve and Alec

11:23--this is torture...

11:32--what the eff is up with these intros? This is taking too damn long...

11:34--Jeff Bridges clearly smokes so much weed

11:37--I have to say, this is one of the worst Oscars I've ever watched

11:48--Sean Penn: stop rambling

11:50--Sandra Bullock is a class act. Good for her

11:53--Oh, the Way You Were, Babs. What the eff are you wearing?

11:56--Wow. You go, girl. 'Bout time a woman won.

11:59--I'm sorry, but what the eff? You make us wait HOURS through this show, and you do Best Picture in 3 seconds?

11:59--Congrats to The Hurt Locker. I was secretly hoping Inglourious Basterds would win, but this was a great movie, too.

Great Idea!

Cast members from the 1988 film Stand and Deliver are raising money to help cover medical costs for Jaime Escalante, the beloved high school math teacher in the film, who is battling cancer.

Edward James Olmos, who played Escalante in the movie about a barrio teacher in Los Angeles who created a nationally acclaimed calculus program, is behind the fundraising effort. "The genius that he awakened in the 'unteachable' commanded the attention of the entire world," Olmos says on his website.

He said 79-year-old Escalante has run out of money to pay his medical bills.

"I have been moved to tears to hear of the circumstances of this great man and am calling for a last National Understanding of his selfless contributions to making a difference in this world," Olmos writes.

Escalante, who was born in Bolivia, taught at Garfield High School in Los Angeles in the 1960s where he turned groups of down-and-out inner city kids into calculus champs.
