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

 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

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

Meryl Streep has been largely absent from promotion for August: Osage County. She’s been shooting movies, busy, and hustling on carpets and at parties isn’t usually her thing, although once in a while, if Harvey Weinstein nags at her hard enough, she’ll oblige. That said, the Academy has been very kind to Meryl Streep. Full Story

McCartney & Meryl

How could they say no? It’s Paul McCartney shooting a video at Abbey Road Studios. No one could say no. So here’s the video for Queenie Eye featuring Johnny Depp and Kate Moss (not shot together) and all kinds of other famous people I’m not listing for you because part of the fun is picking them out one by one but I will say I don’t think that’s Sienna Miller although a lot of people think it is… Johnny Depp hasn’t been this NOT annoying in a long time except – why is it skeeving me when he mouths the words? Question: who’s cooler Johnny Depp or Jeremy Irons? Answer: MERYL STREEP. Full Story

But why must it ALWAYS be girl sh*t?

As Lainey says, girl sh*t is the best sh*t. It makes for great gossip. When it’s organic girl sh*t, occurring in the wild, I enjoy it as much as the next person. When I don’t enjoy it is when it’s manufactured bullsh*t meant to pit women against each other. Why do women always have to be in competition? Why can a woman succeed only at the expense of another woman? And why do we make this narrative—why do we ACCEPT this narrative—when the actual story is obviously not about girl sh*t at all? The National Enquirer—I know, I know, but roll with me—is reporting that the reason Meryl Streep didn’t show up at TIFF to support August: Osage County was not because she was ill (publicly stated reason for her absence) but because she hates Julia Roberts so much she won’t support the film and never wants to work with Roberts again. Full Story

Only Meryl can take on Cate

It was reported just a few weeks ago that Meryl Streep would not contend for Best Actress at the Oscars in March and that, instead, she would be submitted in the Supporting category, with Julia Roberts representing August: Osage County in the lead to take on Cate Blanchett, the current frontrunner for Blue Jasmine. Full Story

Over to you Nicole…and Cate, and Julia, and Sandy

And Kate and Marion and how many others? It was reported yesterday that Meryl Streep will not be contending for Best Actress Oscar this year. Instead, her performance in August: Osage County will be submitted in the supporting category which means that she and Julia Roberts won’t be going head to head against each other but that she will be going head to head on Oprah Winfrey for her role in The Butler. Full Story

Oh yeah, and Mark Ruffalo too. I don’t see why I have to keep writing this article. Isn’t that enough? Isn’t it??? Fine. We will continue. The Toronto International Film Festival has just announced its 2013 lineup and, as usual, it’ll be a mega movie star year to kick off award season. Full Story

Deadline confirmed yesterday that The Weinstein Company has acquired distribution rights for Grace Of Monaco starring Nicole Kidman. So, you know what that means: he’ll be pushing Granny Freeze for an Oscar campaign next year. (By the way, the Oscars will be held back to March 2, 2014 to accommodate the Olympics. Full Story

I was hardly the only one to see it, but I am delighted that we now have the potential to recapture it. This is fantastic. The best actress in the world picks her wedgie (I would also have accepted “adjusts her fullback underwear”),  and not only smiles with grace about it, but somehow intuits that the camera has caught this and smilingly explains “I was worried I was going to step on my dress”. Full Story
