I received the following text last night, verbatim: “Tina Fay [sic] is on PBS. I just love her dress.” She was one of the presenters helping to give the Mark Twain Prize for Humor to Carol Burnett. (This happened in October but the event aired on PBS last night.) Before we get to Tina: 1. Full Story
I mean, it’s a no-brainer. Isn’t it? Tina and Amy have done the impossible – they’ve secured hosting spots for the Golden Globes for the next two years in a row. They were awesome, everyone agreed. They were awesome because they A) Didn’t pull any punches – they left everything on the floor; and B) Were equal opportunity offenders – Taylor Swift jokes weren’t the only ones that landed (they’re just the ones that everyone remembers some 10 months later); and finally, and most importantly… C) They didn’t f*cking care if you liked it.

Was it a happy ending? However you’d classify it, it certainly wasn’t a weak ending. Expectation can kill a series finale and holy sh-t, Breaking Bad was facing some Expectations. What I have always loved most about Breaking Bad however is that it never succumbed to the need to “explain” evil in a way that provides comfort for those who need to believe there’s a root cause for everything. Evil is its own root cause and no religion will ever make that better. Sometimes being bad just feels good – how’s that for a reason?
We have a lot of TV to talk about. There’s what happened to Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. And Homeland. And… Masters Of Sex! Also a fresh blind. And Paris Fashion Week in LifeStyle and Tina Fey opens a new season of Saturday Night Live, partly as Farrah Fawcett. Big week ahead. It’s premiere week. Have you caught up on Scandal yet?!?
Yours in gossip,
Saturday Night Live kicked off a new season on Saturday with host Tina Fey and several new cast members. One woman…and all white. So after 39 seasons, you know, take comfort in the fact that not much has changed. Well, at least it didn’t suck. How could it suck with Tina around? And Jesse Pinkman? Everyone’s favourite sketch was Girls and Blerta (Kate McKinnon was so good in that). Full Story

Okay, let’s get the sartorial stuff out of the way first. Tina’s dress fit her impeccably. But it was, yes, kind of a boring blue. But her hair was a whole new colour! And she looked more comfortable than she often does on these carpets. Amy Poehler looks like she’s drinking the blood of virgins. Full Story
I have nervous anticipation. Connie Britton was recently cast in This Is Where I Leave You, a movie based on a delicious book that you should read this weekend, about a family that sits shiva after the father passes away. (Lainey: I've written about Jonathan Tropper, the author, before. Full Story

This new Taylor Swift interview in Vanity Fair... Let’s break it up into two parts. Because, as it always is with Taylor Swift, there’s SO MUCH TO FEEL. The article was written by Nancy Jo Sales, a veteran writer who you may remember from that classic, amazing article on Leonardo DiCaprio I linked to Full Story

This is the first time in my memory that we’ve come off an awards show and, of the hosts, gone “f-ck yeah!” They were spectacular, and this was not supposed to be the case. I mean, of course it was but anyone else would have crumbled under the hype. Not our girls. They were absolutely top-level. Full Story

Here’s Tina Fey at the 30 Rock series final wrap party last night in New York. Good pants, right? They’re a really nice fit. Skinny cut and there’s room. I need to look into these. Also a point toe pump is so flattering with that length. OK so now we’re only 3 weeks away. Full Story
Well, you knew that was happening as soon as she wrote the song for The Hunger Games soundtrack. That’s all the Hollywood Foreign Press Association would have needed to put her name down for a nomination. Have they even listened to the music? Please. Who cares? Does it matter? Taylor Swift has been nominated for a Golden Globe. Full Story
The one thing that kind of bugged me about Tina Fey’s Bossypants was that she used the word “grim” a lot. Situations were grim. Lighting was grim. People were grim. She loves the word. But maybe she finds that “g-r” construction evocative, because in this clip from last night’s Inaugural Gala for the Center for Reproductive Rights in New York, she makes the best use of “grey-faced” I’ve ever heard.
