Dear Gossips,

TIME has released its annual list of 100 Most Influential People. The categories are: Titans, Pioneers, Artists, Leaders, Icons. So who’s a Titan?

Beyonce, of course.

To me, what’s been most interesting on this list isn’t necessarily who’s on it but the people who are chosen or have volunteered to write the piece that accompanies the entry. Beyonce’s, for example, was written by Sheryl Sandberg. Pharrell, who is also a Titan, was honoured by Justin Timberlake – who did it last year for Jimmy Fallon and made it all about himself (click here for a refresher). JT managed to restrain his ego this time.

Under the Icon category, we find…Carrie Underwood. Ohhhh…kayyyy. Underwood is an Icon alongside Donna Tartt who just won the Pulitzer for The Goldfinch. God, The Goldfinch. There were times when I was reading The Goldfinch when I would just look at the page like, ARE YOU KIDDING ME HOW ARE YOU THIS GOOD, HOW, HOW, HOW!?!?

I’ve made my way through a quarter of the list this morning and my favourite so far has to be what Colin Firth wrote in support of Benedict Cumberbatch’s inclusion on the list:

“When I was about 25 years old, I worked with two very good actors. The encounters were brief, but I’ve remembered them both with great admiration. Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton both embodied qualities which one is fogyishly tempted to look at with nostalgia. Along with very considerable talent, they had elegance, glamor, wit, kindness and decency.

I didn’t know at the time that they were married or that they had a son of about 10 who was quietly gestating all the same attributes. And now, 30 years later, the boy has been let loose. He has taken the form of Benedict Cumberbatch.

His parents’ qualities are on rampant display. It’s rare to the point of outlandish to find so many variables in one actor, including features which ought to be incompatible: vulnerability, a sense of danger, a clear intellect, honesty, courage — and a rather alarming energy. I take no pleasure in feeling humbled, but there’s no getting around it.

He must be stopped.”

He’s delightful, non? Firth, I mean. Obviously.

I mean... I don't think there's anyone better in a suit. No one. And you can't accuse me of age-ism either because he's not 24, which is how old I normally perv them but then again, at 24, it's never done this well. Colin Firth has been in New York promoting The Railway Man. Full Story

Never. But I do love the comments he made last night at the premiere of The Railway Man in London. It’s the true story of Eric Lomax who was captured during the Second World War, tortured, and made to work on Thai-Burma railway. Many years later he decided to confront his tormentor. Lomax is survived by his wife Patti who praised Full Story

Andrew Garfield showed up in costume at Comic-Con – click here if you missed Sarah’s recap earlier today—and then flew straight to the South of France to see his girlfriend Emma Stone where she’s working on Woody Allen’s new movie with Colin Firth. Full Story

Stop what you’re doing right now. Because Colin Firth was in Cannes. Looking better than he has in a long time. Here he is being beautiful at a couple of Chopard events yesterday. Livia, his wife, is there too. Colin’s kept a relatively low profile for the last couple of years but he’s recently been confirmed to star in Woody Allen’s latest, with Emma Stone, and also in Matthew Vaughn’s The Secret Service, described as a comic book Bond. Full Story

Here are Cameron Diaz and Colin Firth at the London premiere of Gambit tonight. Gambit will be released in the UK on November 21. I haven’t been able to find a US date yet which isn’t a good sign. And, as I wrote last month, if you’ve seen the trailer, that probably doesn’t surprise you. Full Story

A naked Alan Rickman, a half naked Colin Firth, Cameron Diaz in her underwear and panties, the always amazing Stanley Tucci ... These are the main highlights from the first Gambit trailer that was just released yesterday (I love trailer season!) and, well, as much potential as it might have to be great, am I crazy in saying that it doesn’t seem all that funny and that Cameron Diaz isn’t the main problem? Yes, of course a line like “Have a look at these” is meant to be more amusing only because it’s Alan Rickman delivering it but. Full Story

Here are Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth shooting The Railway Man in Perth. I quite like her with brown hair. It softens all that sh-t she’s done to her face even though, from this distance, and in a blurry shot, that third upper lip is as bloated as ever. I really wish she’d stop muting her talent with her obsession to stay unwrinkled. Full Story

Look at him holding that plaque, SO cute. I am currently in studio and I don't have access to google what exactly that means (know-it-alls, I'm expecting you), but I think it's safe to assume he's being honoured. And so he should be. Some men were made for good tailoring, non?Ps - will be home from studio soon. Full Story

It’s so great that she’s all about green style but there has to be a vegan dress that’s an improvement on this one, non? I really do love Livia Firth. But this is an abomination; there’s no other way to say it. Happily though, her dress didn’t have to go up on stage with him to present Best Actress.“We were in Greece. Full Story

Best BAFTA 2012: Meryl Streep

I think this Vivienne Westwood is glorious on her. Magestic. And it's great encouragement too. That a woman of Meryl's merit, maturity, and stature can wear the SH-T out of a designer garment that was originally sent down the runway on an 18 year old genetic freak. There's also something to be said about her reaction to winning. Full Story

Other than Jean Dujardin.Brad Pitt and George Clooney both came without dates. The Jolie stayed back with the children in Berlin and George, perhaps sensing that Stacy’s not helping against Jean Dujardin, decided to go it alone. He’s better alone. When he’s alone, he can be with his boys. He can hug Colin Firth and hold his hand. Full Story

Tux School - this is how you wear one. He actually looks a lot better here than he did by the time award season was over last year. No stress, no pressure, makes a big difference.  Full Story
