Oscars 2011 Articles

Dear Gossips,

The Academy announced yesterday that Angelina Jolie will present at the Oscars. Great. But...it’s not like she wasn’t already attending with Brad Pitt, Best Actor nominee. We would have seen her anyway. My worry now though is that by confirming the Jolie as a presenter it means Jennifer Aniston WON’T be.  Read Full Intro

James Franco miscalculates?

It’s not like Anne Hathaway hasn’t been criticised for what happened at the Oscars. She has. You have. Hathaway however will emerge from the sh-t kicking relatively unscathed. She tried, she wasn’t very good, but no one is holding it against her. You know why? Because she was stuck with an ungrateful prick who couldn’t be bothered. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

So? How did you do on your ballot? And what did you think of that show? Not gonna lie, I thought the show would be good. I thought those two would bring something fresh, something entertaining. The good news is that the show came in surprisingly shorter than I thought it would be.  Read Full Intro

Oscar Worsts: Gwyneth Paltrow & Nicole Kidman

In this episode of Everyone Loves Gwyneth, here she is with Nicole Kidman on the carpet last night holding hands. Kidman almost always towers over any woman she stands beside. Gwyneth really is that tall. I was delighted they decided to be all friends and girly together, considering they both looked like so much ass. Full Story

I’m sure I’ll hear it from you on this one. But remember here that we’re talking about Cate Blanchett. Cate Blanchett doesn’t make style decisions with an eye to what someone like, say, Reese Witherspoon would wear on a carpet. In fact, she’d look at something that Reese Witherspoon would wear on a carpet and say “absolutely not”. Full Story

My friend Lorella has a disparaging nickname for him re: his face. It’s something to do with an animal, and I can’t remember the animal right now because I’m too tired, but I don’t disagree with her description the way Andrew Garfield looks in photos because, indeed, his is a tricky, unusual face to shoot, and he’s not conventionally attractive the way, say, someone like Armie Hammer is conventionally attractive, sure. Full Story

Oscar Conflict: Michelle Williams

Written by Duana This woman gives me the conflict. She’s an actress so why can’t she pretend she likes people? If she wants real critical acclaim and the freedom to make even more, better movies, being a box-office draw is one of the clearest paths to getting that done. Full Story

Oscar You Knew He’d Be There: Taylor Swift

Thursday night she hits a hockey game with that Chord kid from Glee. Pictures everywhere. Then she cycles the pre-Oscar party circuit with her bestie Emma Stone. Last night they wing manned for each other at Vanity Fair. It was one of Swifty’s strongest dress-up outings in a long time. A short, flirty, sexy dress. Full Story

Worst Carpet-to-TV Translation: Amy Adams

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Written by Duana While I love Amy Adams, I will admit to being a pretty recent bandwagon jumper. I wasn’t so into it and she played such an unsympathetic character in Julie & Julia and there was the whole cutesy poo singing thing (I can hear all of you going “doesn’t that sound exactly like the kind of person you’d like?” ) but I can’t explain it. Full Story

Oscar Diction: Armie Hammer

My colleague Ben Mulroney, the host of etalk, is pretty tall. Probably 6 ft 2. I can’t remember Ben ever interviewing someone and having to hold the mic UP to the subject. Until I watched it on the monitor during the live red carpet show yesterday as he spoke to Armie Hammer. Armie Hammer looked to be at least a couple of inches taller than Ben. Full Story

Best Recovering Alcoholic: Russell Brand

Written by Duana I know it sounds like a really strange thing to call someone, but after the weekend we’ve had, with the Charlie Sheens and the John Gallianos and all the rest of the poorly-behaved who feel entitled to spray their bullsh-t wherever they go, Russell Brand is both entertaining and a model of restraint. Full Story

Oscar Tense: Colin Firth

He looked tight last night. The most tense I’ve ever seen him. Because he knew he was going to win. And I suppose it’s a lot worse knowing you’re SUPPOSED to win and anything else would be a huge upset and wondering about the possibility of the huge upset and having to wait for several hours before finding out – that would suck. Full Story
