Intro for March 4, 2014
“And don’t you f-cking forget it” – what Cate Blanchett said in the press room backstage at the Oscars upon being asked about her accomplishment as the first Australian to win two Oscars for acting. As for why she told Julia Roberts to #suckit, it was apparently because they were drinking at the bar together during the show. That’s pretty much Duana’s most erotic fantasy – eavesdropping on that moment. Because at that moment, they were equals with one award each. And now Cate has surged ahead. She’s also surged ahead of Nicole Kidman. You think Granny Freeze is thinking about that?
Oh, of course not. Actors aren’t competitive.
Am attaching the Actor class photo from this year. In about two weeks, they’ll start talking about next year. This is how the game works, helped by Angelina Jolie who has started campaigning a year in advance. For now though, let’s detox from award season. Paris Fashion Week is still happening and Chanel presented today. And the Girls and The Walking Dead recaps will go up today too.
But first, THANK YOU from Duana and me for all your emails and tweets during yesterday’s Oscars recap. We love breaking it down the way that we do. And even though we still haven’t really slept much (Rob Ford ended up being on the red-eye) your feedback kept the discussion going, kept us going. We are so grateful that you continue reading our analyses and we appreciate, so much, your repeat visits.
Yours in gossip,
