Lee Daniels -- The Oscars Can't Snub Me Because I Don't Care About Awards

Lee Daniels couldn't care less about the Oscars dissing his flick 'The Butler' because he tells us he doesn't buy into Hollywood's self-congratulatory award crap, but the thing is ... we're not sure Lee's keeping it 100.

Here's the deal ... 'Butler' came up goose eggs for Oscar noms -- nothing for Lee, Forrest Whitaker, or Oprah Winfrey -- even though critics LOVED the movie.

Daniels shrugged off the controversy at LAX ... telling us, "we don't do it for the awards, we do it for the art" -- which is either a totally chill thing to say ... or just what you HAVE to say when you get snubbed.

Justin Bieber -- Codeine Company Not Down With His Sizzurp Consumption

Justin Bieber
's drug of choice has ruffled the feathers of the company that makes it ... now that TMZ has broken the story that Justin has a serious sizzurp problem.

As we reported ... Justin's sizzurp (aka lean) concoction includes Actavis -- a mixture of promethazine hydrochloride and codeine phosphate syrup.  It's considered the Rolls Royce of lean, which is commonly mixed with soda and a Jolly Rancher.

Our sources say Justin gets his stash of Actavis from out of the country.

A rep for Actavis tells TMZ ... they disavow the use of their product for illegal purposes.  The rep notes their product is used for temporary relief of coughs and upper respiratory symptoms associated with allergies and common colds.

The rep adds, "The company does not condone its use for any indications outside of this purpose."

The rep would not discuss the fact that the product has become a staple for high-end sizzurp users.

'The Bachelor' -- Juan Pablo's No Homophobe ... Says Jilted Contestant

 "The Bachelor" star Juan Pablo Galavis is not a hateful, homophobic butcher of the English language ... he's a sensitive, caring man who just can't express himself very well ... says a woman who just got booted off the show.

Chantel Forrest -- a black account manager -- tells TMZ she got to know Galavis well during her time on the show and says he would NEVER offend anyone because they're gay or a different color.

Galavis -- who's Venezuelan but born in the US of A -- told an interviewer gay people are more "pervert" than others ... then asserted the ol' language barrier defense.

Chantel says Galavis shouldn't be bashed for bad grammar.

"I was not offended by his comments at all," she tells TMZ. "They wouldn't have changed my opinion of him. I wouldn't change anything."

In other words ... she'd probably still sleep with him ... we're guessing.

Breaking News

"Entourage" director Doug Ellin had a brush with disaster on a yacht this weekend in Miami -- accidentally dropping his expensive camera into the ocean ... after shooting a wild bikini scene for the movie ... but thankfully, the damage was minimal.

Sources on the set tell TMZ, Ellin was stepping off the yacht onto a smaller boat when he accidentally dropped his personal camera into the water. He offered to pay divers $1,000 to find it, but it was impossible.

Luckily, the camera didn't contain any official film footage ... but it did have more than 500 behind-the-scene photos of all the girls in bikinis. Arguably a bigger loss.

Fun fact: the third girl from the right in the pink bikini is Ryan Seacrest's new girl Shayna Taylor ... who landed a role in the movie after her modeling career blew up (thanks to Ryan).

Suge Knight -- Arrest Warrant Issued ... Dude Never Shows Up In Court!

Suge Knight is now a wanted man ... because a judge just issued a bench warrant  for his arrest ... and it's pretty ironic, because he was supposed to show up on another warrant that was issued for not showing up.

TMZ broke the story ... Suge was pulled over in September for driving without license plates. When he was pulled over cops realized he had an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in another case.  Suge was then arrested, hauled off to jail, released and ordered to appear in court today.

Suge was a no-show, so the judge ordered the deputies to haul his butt into court and set bail at $26K.

And history repeats itself.
