John Ridley & Steve McQueen: Feuding Over 12 Years a Slave Writing Credit?

12 Years a Slave was among the major 2014 Academy Awards winners Sunday, taking home Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay for John Ridley.

Cause for celebration, right? Mostly. Director Steve McQueen and Ridley are reportedly engaged in a feud regarding writing credits for the acclaimed film.

When Ridley was announced as the winner of the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for the film, Steve McQueen appeared … less than thrilled.

Then, Ridley failed to name the film’s director among the many “thank you” mentions in the speech. Coincidences and the products of nerves or bad timing?

Possible, certainly. Neither would be unprecedented on such an occasion. But the rumors began anyway, fueled by a tweet from reporter Nikki Finke.

She wrote that her (unnamed) sources “attributing the John Ridley-Steve McQueen cold shoulder at Oscars tonight to dispute over screenplay credit.”

Ridley (top left, in above photo) also did not bring up McQueen (bottom right, speaking) the night before after his win at the Independent Spirit Awards.

Did McQueen want credit on the script as well? Is there something else wrong between them? Neither has commented on the alleged feud as of this point.

Jennette McCurdy Blasts Andre Drummond: What a Bad Kisser!

It’s a good thing Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond averages 12.9 rebounds per game.

Because he’ll need to find a rebound girl quickly after ex-girlfriend Jennette McCurdy tore him a new one in public!

The former iCarly star appeared on Pete Holmes’ podcast over the weekend and opened up about her fling with Drummond, which took place this fall after the NBA star repeatedly chose McCurdy as his “Woman Crush Wednesday” on Twitter.

The relationship is definitely over now, McCurdy made clear, saying their first date “didn’t go great” because there were “no sparks.”

As for their first kiss? Which went down after a day of laser tag?

“The mouths … the shapes weren’t right,” McCurdy said critically.

McCurdy went on to paint Drummond as rather desperate and pathetic, saying he bought her a necklace and got down on one knee to ask her to be his girlfriend.

She said yes out of guilt – and then dumped him via phone a few days later.

How does Drummond feel about the actress going off on him as clueless and immature?

“I found [Jennette’s comments] funny,” he tells TMZ. “There’s a lot of false info in there, but I’ll be the mature person about the situation and let it die out.”

Well, gee, Andre. Come on. That’s no fun at all for the rest of us.
