Jennifer Lawrence was named Best Supporting Actress for her work in American Hustle yesterday by the New York Film Critics Circle. For most people, winning Oscar in February and making the world fall in love with you while tripping up the stairs would be enough to call it a great year. But then, not only does she avoid the inevitable backlash that so often follows someone in her position, she continues to charm, disappearing at exactly the right times, and reappearing for exactly the right amount of time to crush the box office with Catching Fire, and then, well, why not close the year with another critically acclaimed performance? She’s the youngest member of the Hustle cast and it’s almost like she’s carrying them into the season now. Here, hop on. Everyone adores her so let’s ride her momentum. And she’s just 23 years old!
What’s ahead for Jennifer Lawrence in 2014?
Lawrence was born under the sign of the Horse. 2014 is the Year of the Horse. I have to ask my ma, the Chinese Squawking Chicken what it’s looking like for horses during the Horse. All I know is that the Horse is the opposing sign of the Rat. If you’re a Rat, 2014 is your time to clench and endure. Ben Affleck is a Rat. The last time it was the Year of the Horse was 2002. Which is when he hooked up with Jennifer Lopez.
Yours in gossip,
Art Basel begins in Miami tomorrow. Aaaaaand guess who just happens to be in Miami? Leonardo DiCaprio was photographed there this week with his boys, getting ready for all the awesome art. Of course all the art. Only the art. It has nothing to do with the fact that Art Basel turns into a big party. Full Story
Today is Jay Z’s 44th birthday. 44 on December 4. You know they love their 4s. 2+2=4. So Jay announced that he’s going vegan for 22 days, right up until Christmas: Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you’ve found the way. On December 3rd, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!! This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a “plant-based breakfast” everyday. Full Story
Shailene Woodley and Jared Leto hung out together with a friend in New York yesterday. And you know how we are. Two famous people find themselves in the same place at the same time and for sure they’re f-cking, and definitely getting married. That’s the STAR Magazine approach. Leto is half Leonardo DiCaprio, half Adam Levine. Full Story
Corinne! Happy Birthday from Enza and Cristina who think you’re “one of the most brilliant, hilarious, dynamic, strong, and courageous” women they know! I love these adjectives. And I’ve no doubt the person whose friends and family would describe this way is totally, totally worthy of them. Full Story
The Gotham Independent Film Awards happened last night in New York giving Inside Llewyn Davis a boost. Back in Cannes, everyone was calling the Coen Brothers film a lock for Oscar. Given the strength of the fall releases, it still has some work to do.
At the event, while Lee Daniels was on stage honouring Forest Whitaker, the crowd wouldn’t stop talking. It became so distracting for Daniels that he ended up telling them to “shut the f-ck up”. OK or offside?
I’ve been there before. I’ve hosted events where people just keep going, and despite the shhhhhs from around the room, they’re carry on undeterred. It’s infuriating. And my first instinct is to call it rude. But then again, let’s say you paid several hundred dollars, sometimes more, to attend a gala. Read Full Intro

UK gossips are rumouring that Harry Styles has started up a situation with model Daisy Lowe, daughter of Gavin Rossdale and ex-girlfriend of Matt Smith. They went to a birthday party together, and any hot girl seen in his vicinity is, naturally, totally f-cking him. Since the two were both at the British Fashion Awards last night, that means it has to be true. Full Story

Two members of my 5 List were recognised at the Gotham Awards last night. Oscar Isaac was there representing Inside Llewyn Davis which won Best Film.

Check out this photo of Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge at the British Fashion Awards last night. It’s cracking me up. She’s dropping some mega Ebola Hilton and he looks totally stunned. I’m sure the cameras just caught an awkward moment but the reason it’s so funny is because that’s just not Sienna’s usual vibe. Full Story

Amy Poehler went for a walk in New York with her boyfriend Nick Kroll yesterday. They’ve been dating at least 6 months now. Did you know he had such smart style?
