TheYBF.com talked to Oscar nominee Octavia Spencer about her BIG Sunday coming up, Hollywood's "It" girl Paula Patton, Honoree Kerry Washington and so many more on yesterday's 5th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood carpet. 

 

Check out what they had to say about their overwhelming celebritidom, plus tons more pics of the YBF folks you didn't see...

ESSENCE Honoree Paula Patton was her usual excited self before she even hit the stage to accept her Award yesterday.  YBF's L.A. Correspondent Kalia Silva caught up with the Mission Impossible 4 star to find out just how she's handling all this overwhelming attention...and how her hubby Robin Thicke is doing post-arrest.  And Oscar nominee (and Honoree) Octavia Spencer told us what's REALLY on her mind about walking across that Oscar stage.

It's so easy to talk about

It's so easy to talk about what someone else look like when your in front of a monitor and know one can see you. I bet you look like a Baboon ASS. Futhermore Chrissy put most of these young girls half her age to shame. That mole does not change the fact that chrissy is a good looking woman.

Agreed...another person

Agreed...another person riding off Whitney. Cassie ask Diddy why did he call everybody to come to Clive pre gram party while Whitney's body was 4 floors above your head. Wow, you was there too!! Not supporting anyone who was at the Clive Davis party. And ask why Diddy almost died a day later, I knew that was Whitney's doing.

I mean...... She does!!! This

I mean...... She does!!! This society of wimps needs to go. Whether her mom died or not is not going to stop people from saying the truth. I understand she's grieving, but that does not affect me. Sorry for her loss, but she needs to stop being an addict, seek help nd close that gap.

The pretty lady in the red

The pretty lady in the red top, Debra C-M---never heard of her before, but she's the one to watch! I don't know all the intricate details about the movie industry but, producer=money. They're the people who front the cash to get a movie made. So, the next time we get mad about Black actors not having enough work in Hollywood & the stories not representing us, just think back to the folks behind the scenes with real power. And Ms. Debra's gorgeous, too?!? You go girl!

Paula Patton seems like the really nice type of girls that everyone dislikes because the assumption is they're stuck-up because they are beautiful.

I think Paula Patton seems

I think Paula Patton seems very likeable--always smiling and she seems very down to earth. That being said, I don't find her beautiful, so I'm not sure that's a reason to dislike her. Attactive, yes; beautiful, not really.

Paula Patton is not

Paula Patton is not Hollywoods "It girl". She is basically an alien neck bitch that is taking up space for someone more relevant in Hollywood. To me, she plays herself in EVERY role. And that person is annoying.

Every time I see a post by you, it's so negative. Sweety, you need to face your insecurities and stop taking them out on ppl who don't know you on a blog. Your negativity must come across to those who know you and it is NOT attractive. Ugh.

You must not read my comments

You must not read my comments very often pumpkin because I leave a lot of positive comments. When I want to state my opinion thats what I do whether it be negative or positive. This is a blog in case you havent noticed. If you don't like it then thats too bad bitch.
Ethel aint no killa but dont push her's picture

Positive as far as anything

Positive as far as anything BUT Paula Patton goes. If you don't care for her, consider a career change as a casting director, producer or director so you can make it your personal mission to stop putting her in movies. Until that day comes, I doubt if she's going anywhere so maybe you should channel your energy towards a more important cause.
anon's picture

Take your own advice and

Take your own advice and channel your energy somewhere else other than my posts. How bout that?? I have another idea. How bout you and Gia hold hands and sing Kumbaya?? Since everything is all positive. I dont like Paula Patton and yall crazy asses cant make me. ....nor can you make me stop stating my opinion. So get over it.

It's really difficult listening to Paula Patton speak. She must be a great actress because she gets right into character.
