Dear Gossips,

So… remember in the weeks leading up to the Oscars we kept talking about how this was the tightest race in years, across several major categories? Well, it happened in the most unexpected f-cking way. And yes, of course, we will get to the Best Picture clusterf-ck, of course we will.  Read Full Intro

The Icon’s losing face

Meryl Streep is an icon. But Meryl Streep has 20 Oscar nominations and 3 wins. She loses 85% of the time at the Oscars. Which means she’s also used to losing. Isabelle Huppert… I’m not sure Isabelle has that losing percentage. Full Story

Sometimes I imagine what it would be like to be a celebrity, because obviously. But not the ones who say they live in a hotel and haven’t been home in a year and a half, because that’s boring. Sometimes, you take on a kind of grumpy, un-showy role in Hidden Figures because, I assume, you want to be a part of the movie or work with some of the players. Full Story

In case you missed it, Jeremy Renner was at the Oscars, too. I was trying not to bug Lainey during the broadcast, so I did not tweet her photos of Renner all night, but I know that he is her VERY FAVORITE person to show up places. Full Story

I think I enjoy Leslie Mann more than most people because I enjoyed Funny People more than most people. She’s actually quite an active red carpet dresser because she and Judd Apatow Full Story

Is it time to stop expecting Alicia Vikander to be one to style-watch? I just can’t remember the last time I was interested. This cap sleeve dress with the neckpiece is fine. It’s fine. You could even argue that as a returning Oscar winner and presenter, it was intended to be just fine. Full Story

Auli’i Cravalho is a star

I was going to tell you that Auli’I Cravalho is a star because of how brightly her face shone when she sang tonight. I was going to tell you she was a star because Lin-Manuel Miranda, who may as well be actually canonized at this point, doesn’t introduce just anybody and then fade away – he could have been a much bigger part of the performance if she’d needed it. Full Story

I’ve not yet seen Fifty Shades Darker. It was supposed to be a night out with friends and we’d all get drunk and laugh throughout the movie but we couldn’t get our sh-t together and then forgot about it the next week. The movie is making good money at the box office but it’s not doing as well as the first. Full Story

This wasn’t one of those ‘young’ years at the Oscars. Of course everyone fell in love with Sunny Pawar (and in my head he got to choose the candy that rained down, and we are kindred because Lemonheads and Mike and Ikes!), but he wasn’t subjected to long, probing interviews and endless repetitions of “now, were you inspired by your costars” the way a kid who’s a little older would be where every single taped piece about the performer has a reverent, wondering line… ‘So and So is only X years old. Full Story

Before presenting at the Oscars on Sunday, John Cho was at the UTA rally. Did you hear about this? UTA throws an Oscar party every year. And it’s one of the best parties to go to for gossip. The misbehaving Batman has been known to accumulate some of his secrets there. This year, however, instead of spending money on the party – around $250,000 – UTA decided to hold a rally instead and they donated the money to the American Civil Liberties Union and the International Rescue Committee. Full Story
