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. If Michael Keaton had been working it the way Matthew McConaughey worked it last year, it probably wouldn’t be so close. Then again, you could say that Benedict Cumberbatch is working it way harder this year than Matthew McConaughey did last year and somehow he’s found himself in third, maybe even fourth the way Murica Sniper is dominating the box office.

We’ll get to SAG fashion and more (generally I thought this carpet was a lot more stylish than the Golden Globes) but we’ll also mix it up with some non-SAG posts along the way.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

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

After 15 years of marriage, Patrick Dempsey and Jillian Fink are done. She was the one who filed and TMZ reports that there’s no prenup. Fink has hired Laura Wasser to handle the divorce on her side. And TMZ points to more signs that it could get ugly because according to sources, “she’s had a problem with his ego for a while now, which she thinks is out of control”. Full Story

There was a great article in the New York Times that came out just after the Golden Globes: What Happened to Risk on the Red Carpet? With few exceptions – thank you Emma Stone, again, and again, and again – everything, everyone is boring. Full Story

Brad Pitt stopped in at Sundance this weekend with producing partner Dede Gardner to support their film True Story, starring James Franco. Just me or is Franco’s Artist smug prick-face being restrained in the presence of a bigger movie star? He almost looks sheepish. On Saturday Brad put on his tux to accept his honour at the Producers Guild Awards. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Tonight! The Boy Next Door!

Sarah was all pissy about it yesterday when we were texting. Her words: “It is sh-t”.

Yeah. So?

Joanna saw it last night at an advance screening. Her review will be posted later but she emailed me this morning with the following:

“You're going to LOVE IT. It's ridiculous. Why don't they make movies like this anymore???? The sex is GREAT, the movie's not... but it's bad on purpose. Would still recommend. ... Just expect to roll your eyes and laugh. A lot.”

I will. I know I will. I can’t wait.

As you’ve seen, JLO’s been all over the place this week hustling her movie. Last night, it was Watch What Happens Live. She was on the couch while Ryan Guzman got stuck behind the bar.  Read Full Intro
