Bravo to the kid who put lipstick on the cats' assholes for his science project -- now THAT'S using the scientific method for good, not evil!

Poor Glenn Close! She lost out on both the Oscar AND the Razzie for "Hillbilly Elegy." Ouch!

That Jack Black video is hilarious. Not to be nitpicky, though, he does NOT turn into "every superhero," but only Captain America. As "Endgame" showed us, Captain America can wield Mjolnir in his own right because He Is Worthy.
