Dear Gossips,

A trailer for the upcoming Ricki and The Flash was released yesterday starring Meryl Streep as a rock star. Which basically means Meryl Streep will be nominated for more. And she totally should be. As usual, she’s amazing. But so is Audra McDonald. And that’s another bonus. Another? Written by Diablo Cody. Oh and… Rick Springfield. Ha.

It’s a little…what’s the word?... schmaltzy, for sure. But Meryl’s got what looks like an American flag tattooed on her back. I feel like that might make up for the schmaltz. The movie comes out August 7th which hasn’t traditionally been the strongest month for releases. But in recent years, we’ve seen some winners emerging from August. So let’s not yet hold August against Ricki. The hair-combs at the back of her head on the other hand…

Now those can stay in the 80s.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

On paper, would you ever consider giving Carey Mulligan top billing over Meryl Streep for a movie? Their star power and cinematic trajectories couldn’t be more different. But that’s what happens in the first trailer for Suffragette, which was released today. It’s a first look at what many are calling an awards season favourite. Full Story

I did not see that coming from Patricia Arquette. I thought that, if she made a ‘statement’ in her speech, which we all knew she was going to get to do, that it would be about women, and how it’s hard to be a mother, and respecting the quiet people in your life – akin to what Simmons said, and to what Arquette has said in past interviews. 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

All that matters is Meryl

Into The Woods New York premiere last night. Meryl Streep was there. This is all that matters. And look at her. I love this outfit. I love it even more than she didn’t pass her handbag off to an assistant and kept it with her on the carpet. The handbag is a proper handbag too. Not an accessory clutch, not a stylish cigarette and lipstick holder but an over-the-shoulder, gets in the way of posing if you’re Victoria Beckham BAG. Full Story

Have you seen the new look at GOOP? Click here. Does this mean she’s doing away with the personalised letter? Yet another victory for Gwyneth Paltrow this week. You’ve heard the Meryl Streep story, right? Meryl was on Kelly & Michael yesterday talking about Thanksgiving. Full Story

Hugh Grant, a goat, and Meryl

Hugh Grant was in Austria yesterday at the opening of Gut Aiderbichl Christmas Market holding on to a goat. Is that a goat? I think he’s also promoting a movie. European press tours are so weird. Did you know he’s doing a movie with Meryl Streep next year? It’s the Florence Foster Jenkins biopic to be directed by Stephen Frears. Full Story

Into The Woods singing trailer

I think I peaked too early. When we got the teaser trailer earlier this year, I was so excited. I was SO excited. I spent the next week walking around going “… I wish”… fully primed. Gagging for it. Click here for a refresher. Full Story

Into The Woods First Trailer

Okay, as you may have gleaned from life and people who sing Rent on the subway, there are several tiers of musical theatre fans. Some who think they love musicals because they watched the VHS tape  of Annie, and another version who performed in Pippin growing up and will defend it to the death, and the third version is people who are into musicals you’ve never heard of and have reams of Broadway sheet music stuffed into drawers in their homes and understand the meaning of “recitative”. Full Story

She kind of is already, right? Meryl is Meryl like Madonna is Madonna, like Beyonce is Beyonce, like Adele is Adele, like Lorde is Lorde. Meryl is Hollywood’s rock star (sorry Johnny),  so it makes sense that she will now play a rock star. Full Story

The Giver trailer doesn’t give Taylor Swift

I had to watch it twice to make sure I didn’t see her. Then I sent it to our site coordinator Emily and asked her if she saw her. There is no Taylor Swift in the first trailer for The Giver. OK fine. But there is a LOT of colour. It’s been a long time since I read the book but my memories of it are the same colour as the pages – it was actually a really cool effect: the world of The Giver seemed to be reflected on paper, just white and black. Full Story

Meryl Streep: Oscars Most Grace

 So, in today’s unpopular opinion, I hate grace. I hate that it’s the first trait we apply to women who don’t scream their sexiness out all over the place. I hate that it’s used as a synonym for “pretty and polite and thin” but it’s supposed to have a loftier meaning than that. Full Story

Judi Dench was the only Best Actress nominee who did not attend the Nominees Luncheon yesterday. I love that about her. She’s the only one who doesn’t actually give a sh-t. The others most definitely do give a sh-t. Doesn’t mean we can’t love them but we can also say they give a sh-t, right? Cate Blanchett gives a sh-t. Full Story

Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep were pretty tight last night at the Critics’ Choice Awards. They were on the carpet together, they sat together, they hugged several times, and for the most part, on those occasions, Julia held down The Julia, because even Julia knows that Julia < Meryl Streep. Full Story
