It’s for the best, really. That there will be no Friday Night Lights movie. It’s for the best. Peter Berg told Collider that:
“There’s not gonna be a movie. We talked about it, some people thought it was a good idea, some didn’t; I’ve come to believe it’s probably not a good idea and I seriously doubt it’s gonna happen.”
One of those people who didn’t think it was a good idea was Taylor Kitsch. He told me as much at TIFF. I believe the exact words were, “No f-cking way”.
Are you OK with this? I wasn’t super OK with the notion of a movie so this decision feels like the right one. We got the story we needed. Now we can remember them as they were, instead of risking remembering them contorted in film. Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose. The lights will never go out in Dillon.
Yours in gossip,
Dear Virginia – today is your last radiation. Thinking of you and hoping that 2014 kicks 2013 in the ass. Here’s a goal: April 25 is the anniversary of the day we met last year in Montreal. Come back to The Social on April 25, 2014. Let’s make it annual tradition. Until then, have a great day and have a wonderful holiday. Full Story
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Holidays? Sure. But… award season! The Golden Globe nominations will be announced on Thursday. In other words, the Tina and Amy Show. Tina and Amy will make coming back to work in January tolerable, promise.
That’s a lot of pressure, right? Well, you don’t think they know that? After they killed it last year, of course they know that. That they decided to return, knowing the pressure, is the point. So don’t worry whether or not it’s unfair that it’s too much pressure. Don’t patronise them with worry that it’s too much pressure. They’re good.
Last year Tina and Amy took a shot at James Franco and he wasn’t even in the room. Franco was just named Best Supporting Actor for his work in Spring Breakers by the LA Film Critics Association in a tie with Jared Leto. Read Full Intro

Of John’s comedy mustache. It’s T-minus forty days until Sherlock series 3 premieres in the US, or, as I like to put it, T-minus twenty-two days until we all pirate it (“The Empty Hearse” is scheduled to air on New Year’s Day in the UK). Why do they insist on this window between airings? Do they actually think we’re going to wait three whole weeks to learn how Sherlock survived The Fall? Because while John may say he doesn’t care how, only why, we, the audience, already know why (to save you, John!). Full Story

So Jay-Z announced that he's only eating plants for 22 days. Underneath his letter, there was a PS – B’s joining him too. And she’s dressing accordingly. In fur, pepperoni print clothing, and now this cow print sweater that omg I really want. What’s the message here? Is it just what she decided to pull out of her closet? With B, the level of control she exercises over everything, you think this was by accident? Some people think she’s protesting her husband. Full Story

Harry Styles was in New York with One Direction this weekend for their performance on SNL. These photos were taken on Saturday before the show. So cute with that headband. And then went and pissed it all away. Harry wasn’t alone. That Kardashian sister again. So they went out for dinner in LA. Full Story

Miley got all up in Santa’s crotch at a Jingle ball or something and people were talking. To be honest, at this point I barely noticed. I’m more interested in her new hair. Here she is at the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas on Saturday in LA. As you can see, she’s bobbed now. Is it a wig? She’s growing it out and it doesn’t look like a terribly thick wig if it is one.

A couple of months ago in London, Shia LaBeouf got punched in the junk for being a dick. So, like, just a regular Tuesday. Sarah wrote about it here. According to the British papers, Shia was once again being a dick at a restaurant recently but this time, he was the one who told his opponent that: “I can get you killed. Full Story
Homeland Season 3 Episode 11 recap That’s the show I remember. So that was the first, maybe second episode of the season that felt like it was worth all of our time, right? Blissfully little Mira (but I may have to accept that Virgil is gone for now) and a fast, fast pace. It felt like coming home. Full Story
It’s an early Christmas present! Check out My Obsession, Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, kissing each other in Vancouver yesterday. Sam, as you know, is directing Fifty Shades Of Grey, and she was embraced by her husband who came to visit the set. I think maybe he tried to grab her ass? YASSSSSS…!!!!!!!! MORE!!!!!!!!!!!! Apparently they’ve been booting around town when she’s not working all like regular and un-celebrity with their kids, being sweet and unassuming, attracting almost no attention. Full Story
I didn’t watch The Sound of Music on Thursday night because I’ve never seen the movie (and have zero interest in it) and Scandal was on. Not that I couldn’t have been persuaded to PVR it, but Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer aren’t high priority for me. But of course I read the tweets and some of the reviews; my favourite was from Deadline Full Story
