There is no dress that was as bad as Justin Timberlake last night. No outfit as hideous as his behaviour. No hairstyle as goddamn f-cking heinous as his need not only to make himself the story but to make his story part of everyone else’s story too. Full Story

Want to know a little tidbit I am embarrassed to know? Charlize Theron and I share a birthday. Not the year, but the day. Also David Duchovny, if you really want to know. It’s not exactly why I always think of her as being stalwart and around, but it doesn’t hurt. Full Story

Janelle Monae is smarter than me. I know. I’m not surprised either. And yet.  I’ve been loving how much Janelle Monae we’ve gotten this awards season, the double-dip of having her in two big showy casts. Full Story

Hands up if you like Emma Stone – as an actress, not just a cute personality. Keep them up if you think she’s one of the best of her ‘class’. That is, if you think she can hold her own against Michelle Williams, Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman, Anna Kendrick? Yeah, me too. Full Story

Reese Witherspoon did not really have a film in the Oscar or awards season conversation this year. Sure, she was hustling for Sing! (which was a lot of fun), but she was not an Academy presenter on Sunday night, nor did she have a film to represent. Full Story

So I know a little bit about acting. Not a lot. One of the things I know, though, is that the term itself can be a little bit of a misnomer.

Kate Hudson is a staple at the Vanity Fair Oscar party – it’s the biggest party night of the year, and even though she hasn’t been nominated since 2001, Kate is not George Clooney. She’s not skipping the party just because she doesn’t have a concrete reason to be there. Full Story
