Dear Gossips,

Between the PGA Awards, the SAG Awards, Sundance, Paris Fashion Week, and blind riddle subjects filing for divorce, it was a busy weekend in entertainment. So it’ll be a busy blog today too, likely spreading out over two pages. Please refresh often and scroll down to click VIEW MORE if you’re joining us late.

But first…

You laughed. And then JLO’s The Boy Next Door exceeded box office expectations. “I like your mother’s cookies” WAS NOT A FLOP. That distinction belongs to Johnny Depp’s Mortdecai. Let’s repeat that:

Jennifer Lopez opened bigger in January than Johnny Depp.

As for the SAG Awards…

Inside a month to go until the Oscars and we now have two tight races: Birdman vs Boyhood and Keaton vs Redmayne for Best Actor.  Read Full Intro

I don’t normally support a mullet dress. But this mullet dress is extra special. It’s the drama. The drama of a cascading wall of black roses, moving around on a red carpet like a Death Eater. Right? Rosamund Pike is an evil bride in a cape of wilted flowers, what Bellatrix Lestrange would have chosen if Voldemort had wanted to marry her. Full Story

Girls Season 4 Episode 3 recap. Remember network crossover nights? Remember when Urkel would show up on Full House and it would blow your mind? I feel like that’s what’s going on here on Girls. Ray is on a mission to civilize, imbued with the spirit of Will McAvoy. Ranting about people who are ignorant and degenerates who owe him three thousand dollars, and telling Marnie that she is, of course she is, the mistress in Desi’s relationship, and just generally being the only one with a reasonable understanding of what constitutes adult behavior. Full Story

That’s it. Unless the Oscars invite her to present on February 22nd, which would kinda be a slap in the face, Jennifer Aniston’s award season is over; the SAGs marked the end of her run. As we all know, she had hoped there would be another month of this. And she put in an aggressive, impressive campaign that …could only get her so far. Full Story

Amal Clooney was photographed at LAX this weekend, reportedly returning to London after spending several weeks with George through the holidays in Cabo and then back in Hollywood for the Golden Globes. That’s a sick leather jacket, non? It’s Versace. Last week, some had the Clooneys’ alleged $200 million divorce on the cover, which was quickly shot down. Full Story

It’s all in the Video Assumption. And Video Assumption is all about interpretation. My interpretation? Heat. Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto presented together last night at the SAGs. The winner was Mark Ruffalo who wasn’t there. So Jared edged Lupita over to talk into the microphone. Full Story

Have you been watching Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways on HBO? The short explanation is that the band travels to different cities across America to explore that town’s musical history. I mainlined several episodes during the holidays. The Seattle episode sent me into a Nirvana/Kurt Cobain nostalgia black hole that lasted two days. Full Story

You know, she understands the role she’s supposed to play. Remember Sunset Boulevard? Remember how much Norma understood about the business and what was required? Julia Roberts is not Norma Desmond. Not yet. But she knows what it is that’s required of her, and it’s a few things. Full Story

You know that NYT article I referenced earlier in the Reese Witherspoon post? Click here for a refresher. About how there’s no more risk on the red carpet and everyone is as boring as f-ck? Emma Stone was among those singled out for her willingness to play. Full Story

There's really no doubt now that Julianne Moore will finally win her Oscar, right? The only question then is what colour. She wore dark sparkling silver/grey at the Globes (click here for a refresher); last night it was sparkly again but green for the SAGs. Full Story

Alexander Skarsgard and Margot Robbie spent several months together in London last year working on Tarzan, due for release summer 2016. This weekend they were both at Sundance and according to E! News, they were all over each other at the Tinder party (the Tinder party!) on Friday night, holding hands and kissing. Full Story

Amy Poehler wore this colour on the carpet at the Golden Globes. At the time, on Twitter, I called it Hillary Clinton blue. That’s the problem with this tone – I always associate it with an election. The blue though is not the problem here on Julianna Margulies last night at the SAGs. Full Story

Something about this dress was bothering me. And it was more than just her pissy face expression every time the camera went to her when she wasn’t expecting it. That’s been an ongoing thing though. For some reason, Claire Danes just can’t summon the joy. Or maybe it’s that she just doesn’t know how to fake it. Full Story

Her white dress didn’t suck either. But it was what she had to say, what she continues to say, that is the only conversation. I love how it started. About how she has to use her imagination when she’s reading to her daughter. Because, frankly, and too often, children’s stories only look one way. Full Story
