Here’s where you jump on me and start punching, like straight up wailing the way they do in Martin Scorsese movies, before throwing me in a shallow ditch and burying me alive. I just watched Goodfellas and Casino back to back again this weekend, can you tell? But...She’s wearing a beater tank!Yes, yes, she is. Full Story

Look, I’m not saying it was mega offensive in the traditional sense of the word or anything, but if you’ve seen the artist, and the costuming in the film, you know Berenice Bejo can be spectacular. And when you’re a nominee and your film is considered a frontrunner, you are allowed to be spectacular at the SAG Awards. Full Story

They brought the Pitt Porn harder than they have all season last night, perhaps detecting some weakness in George Clooney’s campaign...? As you’ve seen and read, the Brange has been laying it on pretty thick lately, especially Brad Pitt, with the marriage talk and even more marriage talk, between him and Clooney, it’s been fascinating watching the two mighty Super Elite players Biel-ing it on the campaign trail. Full Story

Remember when I ranted back in the day that I didn’t get to see them and their marriage enough?  (Click here for a refresher.) That they had an obligation to show off how cute we all knew they were together?  That I was entitled to see this? Apparently they decided I could wait until the end of January. Full Story

We talk a lot about campaigning here, that actors have to do this or that to secure the nomination and later, the votes. I will leave the intricacies to Lainey, but you all know what I mean. Suddenly stopping at every point on the carpet, smiles for all, revealing tidbits about your life, one Sunday night at a time. Full Story

I realize on the one hand that these guys cannot win. If it’s not Julie Bowen’s sternum being investigated for pacemaker scars, it’s Ariel Winter’s delicate child-flesh too much on display, or Sofia Vergara’s …I don’t know… body bows being thrown all over the carpet and tripping people up. Putting aside that those are all women, people love to find fault when you’re the ones on top. Full Story

Did you see her last night?   She didn’t get interviewed but most certainly was shot by the photographers in that gorgeous red that she’s never looked better in.  She really has never looked better.   Which is why she was able to sit at the Dexter table last night, sitting beside Michael C. Full Story

That was her expression, wasn’t it? As she stalked across the stage to present the award for Best Actor, a look of impatience and exasperation on her face, like it was such a f-cking inconvenience to be there, Natalie Portman was basically telling the Screen Actors Guild that they’re even now - she won last year and she’s paid them back in full this year so f-ck off and don’t ask her again until she’s ready to win another award. Full Story

Like most of you, playing Hate Lea Michele’s Hard-Posing used to be my favourite sport too. And then Taylor Swift happened. Taylor Swift came along and took Eponine away, a role that Lea was made for. Even for those who couldn’t bear Lea, you knew that this part was hers. Which is why I wrote Full Story

It’s not my favourite; this silhouette never is. Perhaps on someone else I’d be more annoyed than I am. But because it’s Emma Stone, and she has demonstrated a willingness to try new shapes and lines, to not be boxed into one particular look, I’ve a lot more patience for it than, say, if this was worn by Reese Witherspoon. Full Story

I watched Moneyball on the weekend.  I mean, it was fine. It was good. Brad Pitt is good. He’s just doing a Coach Taylor impression, though. I don’t want to say a Kyle Chandler impression, because I know Chandler can be other people than just Coach.  But of course that’s been the role he inhabited for us for so long, so completely. Full Story

Worst SAG Choker: Kristen Wiig

I like Kristen Wiig so much but that f-cking choker was so objectionable to me it almost affected how I felt about the wearer, this is what you risk with a terrible accessory. Like, I’m all for understated Balenciaga. And in many ways, Kristen Wiig is very understated Balenciaga. It’s the anti-Marchesa. Full Story

Man, these girls from The Help are on a SLOG.  I was looking up something regarding The Help on the site last night, and I came across a poster in another language, and realized ‘oh yeah’, wide, WIDE release.  Lots and lots of travel to promote the movie and many many outfits. Do you kind of feel like Jessica Chastain maybe blew her wad too early? I’m sorry. Full Story

As you know, as you’ve seen, George Clooney has been working it HARD the last 6 weeks or so for his Best Actor Oscar. Up to last night, he was winning everywhere. He won so much he’d accept his awards like monologues, prepared speeches about his parents toiling in the grain fields and appreciating his opportunities, not unlike the way a political candidate talks about this and that constituent during a rally in a barn somewhere in the Midwest. Full Story
