Some of the biggest buzz surrounding last night’s Oscar’s broadcast had little to do with Neal Patrick Harris in tighty-whities, John Travolta heavy-petting Idina Menzel’s face or John Legend and Common’s moving musical performance to their Oscar-winning song, “Glory.”
Today, many people are talking about the President of the United States.

Last week, the third season of the critically acclaimed drama was “accidentally” released —allowing a lucky a few an early glimpse into the continuing exploits of Frank and Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) — but the rest of us will have to bide our time until February 27, when the entire season is released, in a single, binge-worthy glut.
