If they could only find a way to have Emma Thompson around every year – not necessarily to present, but just to be present, to remind those assholes that they’re there to entertain, to be admired, to be recognised, to be honoured, and it’s a f-cking privilege, not the burden they can make it out to be. Full Story

This photo of Meryl Streep and Emma Thompson was taken 10 years ago while they were promoting Angels In America. Which was my first thought when I saw them together last night at the NBR gala where Meryl presented Best Actress to her friend and, at the same time, delivered a speech that shat on Walt Disney for being a racist, sexist, misogynist asshole …without taking away anything from Emma’s accomplishment. Full Story

Let’s start with Amy Poehler. I love that Amy Poehler isn’t too big to still be doing sh-t like this – running around NYC in a goofy costume crashing into people with a camera and singing Christmas carols all while generally being funny and awesome and spontaneous. She’s the BEST. Full Story

Well now this race is all over the place. The National Board of Review just announced its list and Best Picture went to… Spike Jonzes’s Her, starring Joaquin Phoenix and featuring Scarlett Johansson’s voice. Apparently Scarjo’s work in this film is so wonderful, there are those who believe she should be nominated for an acting award even though she doesn’t actually appear onscreen. Full Story

Look, I might argue that the TV ladies’ roundtable was a little more fun and rollicking, but there is no denying this was a delicious interview, whether you consume it on video (again, it’s an hour, but it doesn’t feel that long) or in print. Full Story

Thespian drama! How British is this sh*t? Today news has broken that Emma Thompson has forgiven Helena Bonham-Carter for having an affair with Kenneth Branagh. The story goes that back in the ‘90s these three were involved in the most English love triangle since crumpets, marmalade and tea, with Helena and Kenneth boning on the set of Frankenstein, effectively destroying his 6 year marriage to Emma. Full Story

Here’s Emma Thompson at her hand and footprint ceremony at the Chinese theatre in Hollywood. As you know, this one knows how to put on a show. Because, as she’s said, as she’s declared emphatically, is that she is an entertainer, and that it’s her job, her obligation to ENTERTAIN. Full Story

He must be thinking, “Daniel Day-Lewis has three. Why not me?” First in October, Tom Hanks has Paul Greengrass’s Captain Phillips, about the Maersk Alabama’s crew being taken hostage by Somali pirates, which is sure to be a tense and heroic turn for Hanks. And then in December he’s starring as Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Full Story

Emma Thompson showed up at the London premiere of MIB3 with her daughter Gaia. SO cute, right? Both in white. And with the same hair! You know how at some point or another our parents always end up embarrassing us? Look at Emma being Emma, with all those facial expressions, probably shouting out hilarious responses to the photographers. Full Story

Most of you will, at some point today, have Men In Black 3 thrown in your face after you leave my blog. Or, perhaps you’d already had it thrown in your face before you visited my blog. That was their intention. Sony announced this morning that they’re promoting the MIB3 trailer across ALL its platforms. Full Story

She was honoured at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards last night in London. They called her a Role Model. Agree! Of course, in typical Thompson fashion, Emma was hilarious during her acceptance. Apparently while on holiday in Scotland, the cops thought she was naked man skinny dipping. Full Story

I love this. Deadline reports that Emma Thompson will join Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in Men in Black 3 as a character called “Oh”, the head of MIB. Kinda like M in Bond? Amazing, right? She’ll be amazing. Full Story

Emma Thompson should be a blogger

Have received your requests on Emma Thompson’s comments re: Audrey Hepburn and My Fair Lady. My first thought was that she should be a blogger. Because her blog would be amazing. Emma doesn’t seem to have a filter, and can write, and is loopy as f-ck, and wouldn’t you read that? Especially since she’s so fearless about her opinions? The background: Prior to her Walk of Fame ceremony last week, Emma was interviewed by the Hollywood Reporter and, although the interview was brimming with insight and self revelation, what caught everyone’s attention were her remarks on how she’s treating the screenplay for the remake of My Fair Lady and specifically on Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle. Full Story
