Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes won’t attend Oscars

Tom Cruise is a man of leisure at the moment. He can jet off to Florida for a little rest and relaxation, attend Daytona, then take his girls to DisneyWorld to meet Cinderella. His comeback is nearly complete. The only thing that would enhance it would be a magnanimous appearance at the Oscars, even though the Academy failed to nominate him this year for his hilarious appearance in Tropic Thunder (though the Academy recognized Robert Downey Jr.’s comeback).

But Tom Cruise won’t be doing “presenting” duties at the Oscars. Allegedly, according to OK! Magazine, Cruise and Holmes will not be attending this year’s Oscar ceremony. It could be a fake-out, like when Tom presented in 2002, the year his new ex-wife Nicole Kidman was nominated for Moulin Rouge. Or it could be that the Academy didn’t even ask Tom or his wife (or both) to present.

Perhaps it’s because Valkyrie was a box-office dud or because Mad Money was an even bigger disappointment, but it looks like this year’s Academy Awards ceremony will be TomKat free.

According to a source close to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, the Hollywood power couple had been planning on attending the Feb. 22 festivities, despite neither of them getting any love from the Academy.

But then in the last couple days “plans changed,” says the source adding that it’s all a bit of a mystery as to why, since both Tom and Katie are still planning on being in town for the weekend.

Even though I’ve lately been giving into the power of Xenu, I know Tom Cruise’s publicity-seeking ways too well. Even if he’s not attending the Oscar ceremony, he’ll find some way to be apart of the Oscar festivities. Perhaps Tom and Katie plan to party-hop all night? That would be my guess, but maybe Xenu will provide some last-mintue presenting duties so Tom won’t lose face.

    I’d think they’d rather have them at the Oscars than at several parties. I wouldn’t want em at any party I was at.

  2. pixiegirl says:

    Little man, tall lady. ‘Nuff said.

  3. geronimo says:

    Since you’ve now gone to the dark side, kaiser, can you ask your new best friend why the holy hell he always holds Katie’s arm/hand like that in public? It’s like he’s presenting her at court or something. SOOOO creepy.

  4. photo jojo says:

    Geronimo, if he didn’t hold her like that, she may take a page out of Suri’s playbook and make a break for it!!

  5. lara says:

    If Valkyrie is considered a box office dud then I want one too. I could live happily ever after and then some more years with the many, many millions my “dud” made.

  6. mojoman says:

    Dear Tom, holding her hands that way every time you two go out still will not make you taller. That is all.

  7. anastasiabeaverhausen says:

    He scares me! Always! I hope they aren’t there, he creeps me out something fierce.

  8. Asiont says:

    katie’s legs are fat.

  9. Baholicious says:

    The way he always hangs on to her makes him look like he’s walking his granny.

    Teeny Tom and his Cankle Queen.

  10. clare says:

    Why do you keep saying his comeback is nearly complete?
    Tom cruise is a creep and Katie Holmes is complicit in his creepiness.
    I’m surprised Suri Cruise won’t be making a special appearance at the Oscars this year the way she’s whored out for their own PR gain.

  11. Rio says:

    Is she really wearing taupe mesh peep-toes? Seriously? Who the Hell designs stuff that outrageously fug?

  12. Baholicious says:

    @Rio: Payless?

  13. Ria says:

    Rio – that’s what I was thinking! I was thinking my senior citizen aunt has a pair of those! She should have ditched the jacket (and Tommy Girl) and gotten some different shoes for that dress.

  14. rebecca says:

    wow. Imagine a man actually treating his wife like a LADY?

    and Katie’s legs are fat?

    you guys are ridiculous.

  15. Diane says:

    I agree, you guys are ridiculous. I believe they are a nice couple that have been treated badly with comments such as these. And Seriously why bring Suri into any of it. She is a precious girl and her parents like having her with them. Big Deal! Most most parents.

  16. ogolliedollie says:

    It costs alot of $$$$$ to look that “put together.”

  17. PJ says:

    Geronimo, I think Katie’s hanging on to Tom for balance because of her sky-high heels. Those shoes she’s pictured in appear to be made of some sort of see-through fabric and provide no support for her feet at all.

    Her buddy Posh Beckham seems to be able to balance in 5-6 inch heels but looks like Katie can’t do it.

  18. geronimo says:

    @PJ – no, sorry, that won’t do! He always holds her hand like this, like you would an elderly person. Really, check out other pics. Never did it with his other tall wife Nicole. I’m 6ft in heels, 2 inches taller than my b/f and if I need balance, I just sling my arm around his neck/shoulder. Just find it very odd. If it is just the shoes, she needs to stop wearing heels she can’t balance properly in – no wonder her posture is so poor.

  19. TinaWithPom says:

    Either Katie’s face happens to look extremely haggard or her face ain’t aging well. And the stringy chicken neck and jutting cheekbones don’t help matters.

  20. Caro says:

    Diane, if they are so good? Why are they members of an organisation such as Scientology. Google it why don’t you and you may soon change your mind.

    It’s all so fake this whole circus.

  21. david says:

    They look great.

  22. Ducky says:

    Tom probably doesn’t want to go for fear of running into Angelina. After he lost that role to her, seeing her would be like Salt in his wounds. 😛

  23. RUTI says:

    You can’t call them power couple. She is 1 if he is 10. She hasn’t achieved anything/proved herself; not even B-list actress. Success of her braodway show is mainly because of the other veteran cast members.

  24. Sarah says:

    She looks tired. I know they are in Florida and the white is appropriate, but they don’t need to match. Some color would be nice on her to freshen things up a bit. Also, the shape of the dress makes the bottom half of her look so much smaller than the top half regardless of how fit she is.

  25. chessie says:

    What has he had done to his face?

  26. boomchakaboom says:

    Her shoes are heinous.

  27. anon says:

    the usual TC crap, he doesn’t get an invite, he claims he’s not showing cos he has better things to do!!!!!!!! a million dollar says there wil be crap load of pics of him and robobride on gossip site(most obviuos of them all JUST JARED)on some fakery family outing on that day

  28. riri says:

    u don’t have to get an invite to be at d OSCARS so long ur an actor/actress, but being egomaniac he is, he’s prolly pissed he’s not been recognised to be a presenter, and he won’t want to sit in the crowd and not noticed especially when his EX will be up there presenting and her co-star is hosting, guess he’s not that powerful afterall or his powers just don’t matter in the places that count (the OSCARS aint no SAGS)

  29. Lisa says:

    1. Yes, I agree with fat legs and hideous shoes.

    2. Yes, both are creepy, but hard to put a finger on exactly what it is.

    I know this sounds cliche, but in every picture Katie looks like a Stepford wife.

    It looks like she’s trying so hard to be “that” person, whoever it is she thinks she’s supposed to be. She seems like she’s uncomfortable in her own skin whether she’s with TC, her kid or by herself.

  30. That means you can devote plenty of this year’s to each. I’m here to give duties the Oscars for Valkyrie. Most are commonly held a mystery and there all a recipe for the Oscar ceremony.

  31. lebezel says:

    Yes, of course Katie has thick ankles and calves. There’s no doubt about that.
    It seems to me that she’s now assumed that “Jackie” expression on photos.
