Dear Gossips,

Between the PGA Awards, the SAG Awards, Sundance, Paris Fashion Week, and blind riddle subjects filing for divorce, it was a busy weekend in entertainment. So it’ll be a busy blog today too, likely spreading out over two pages. Please refresh often and scroll down to click VIEW MORE if you’re joining us late.

But first…

You laughed. And then JLO’s The Boy Next Door exceeded box office expectations. “I like your mother’s cookies” WAS NOT A FLOP. That distinction belongs to Johnny Depp’s Mortdecai. Let’s repeat that:

Jennifer Lopez opened bigger in January than Johnny Depp.

As for the SAG Awards…

Inside a month to go until the Oscars and we now have two tight races: Birdman vs Boyhood and Keaton vs Redmayne for Best Actor.  Read Full Intro

Coming off a disappointing opening-night film with The Bronze, Sundance rebounded over the weekend with Craig Zobel's Z for Zachariah, the end-of-the-world love triangle movie. Starring Chris Pine, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Margot Robbie, the film has been getting great reviews Full Story

Kate Hudson wore that obvious white Versace dress at the Golden Globes, you remember? Click here for my assessment. Basically… too easy. That’s all this is. You have a good body? Let’s pick a dress to show off how good your body is without any creative design elements. Full Story

Mortdecai review

Sarah Posted by Sarah

Last week I was pleasantly surprised when Paddington turned out to be a sweet, adorable film. This week, after seeing Mortdecai, I was not similarly surprised. Because it was not good. Done in the style of pre-war screwball capers, Mortdecai is about Charlie Mortdecai (human cartoon Johnny Depp), an insufferable English aristocrat and art dealer of questionable ethics. Full Story

You’re here because you love the awards. And you remember. You might not remember what your boss told you five minutes ago, but you remember when Gwyneth wore white Tom Ford to the Oscars. You remember Cate Blanchett’s butterflies by Galliano. You can recall, instantly, everything that Lupita wore last year and when – the red caped Lauren at the Globes, the turquoise beading at the SAGs, the pale blue Prada for the Academy. Full Story

I don’t normally support a mullet dress. But this mullet dress is extra special. It’s the drama. The drama of a cascading wall of black roses, moving around on a red carpet like a Death Eater. Right? Rosamund Pike is an evil bride in a cape of wilted flowers, what Bellatrix Lestrange would have chosen if Voldemort had wanted to marry her. Full Story

Girls Season 4 Episode 3 recap. Remember network crossover nights? Remember when Urkel would show up on Full House and it would blow your mind? I feel like that’s what’s going on here on Girls. Ray is on a mission to civilize, imbued with the spirit of Will McAvoy. Ranting about people who are ignorant and degenerates who owe him three thousand dollars, and telling Marnie that she is, of course she is, the mistress in Desi’s relationship, and just generally being the only one with a reasonable understanding of what constitutes adult behavior. Full Story

That’s it. Unless the Oscars invite her to present on February 22nd, which would kinda be a slap in the face, Jennifer Aniston’s award season is over; the SAGs marked the end of her run. As we all know, she had hoped there would be another month of this. And she put in an aggressive, impressive campaign that …could only get her so far. Full Story

Amal Clooney was photographed at LAX this weekend, reportedly returning to London after spending several weeks with George through the holidays in Cabo and then back in Hollywood for the Golden Globes. That’s a sick leather jacket, non? It’s Versace. Last week, some had the Clooneys’ alleged $200 million divorce on the cover, which was quickly shot down. Full Story

It’s all in the Video Assumption. And Video Assumption is all about interpretation. My interpretation? Heat. Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto presented together last night at the SAGs. The winner was Mark Ruffalo who wasn’t there. So Jared edged Lupita over to talk into the microphone. Full Story

Have you been watching Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways on HBO? The short explanation is that the band travels to different cities across America to explore that town’s musical history. I mainlined several episodes during the holidays. The Seattle episode sent me into a Nirvana/Kurt Cobain nostalgia black hole that lasted two days. 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

You know that NYT article I referenced earlier in the Reese Witherspoon post? Click here for a refresher. About how there’s no more risk on the red carpet and everyone is as boring as f-ck? Emma Stone was among those singled out for her willingness to play. Full Story
