Lupita Nyong’o is now the frontrunner for Best Supporting Actress Oscar. And she’s playing the pole position perfectly. Which means Jennifer Lawrence’s chances are pretty sh-t and, unlike, say, someone like Jonah Hill, she doesn’t seem to mind. In fact, it actually seems like she’s happy the pressure is off her. Full Story

While everyone else was on the award circuit and at Sundance this weekend, Mrs Carter went to Washington. She just woke up like that… in the White House. As you know, Beyonce and the Obamas are tight. So she was invited to Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday party this weekend where she also sang some songs – Irreplaceable and Single Ladies – and hung out with Bo. Full Story

Finally. Brad Pitt showed up in LA on Friday. He attended the SAG Awards to support his film 12 Years A Slave on Saturday. It was the surging American Hustle that took home the Best Ensemble Award that night. Last night, however, at the Producers Guild Awards, an unprecedented tie: 12 Years A Slave and Gravity both won Best Picture. Full Story

Jay-Z and Jake Gyllenhaal met up for lunch yesterday. The paps are calling it a “meeting”. But these two have been friends for a while. It’s not the first time they’ve hung out. Unfortunately Beyonce and the B.I.C. were not with them. They had their own plans in the city. Blue joined her mother at work and was seen being carried out of an office building late in the day. 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

Jonah Hill, 2X Oscar nominee and friend of Marty, Leo, and Brange, was nominated for his 2nd Oscar yesterday. Then he got to sit with Marty and Leo at the Critics’ Choice Awards and Leo even namechecked him in his speech! Best day ever! This is why Jonah Hill, 2X Oscar nominee and friend of Marty, Leo, and Brange, doesn’t want to be funny in interviews Full Story

That’s basically how we have to start introducing Jonah Hill. Because that’s how he sees himself… Although, actually, I should put 2X Oscar nominee first. So, let’s go again: Jonah Hill, 2X Oscar nominee, friend of Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Brange. This is our world now. Full Story

Kelly emailed me earlier today about these photos of Colin Farrell leaving a spa yesterday. She wondered whether or not the woman with him is Emma Forrest. That doesn’t look like Emma Forrest to me. But it does look a lot like Sally Hawkins who was just nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance in Blue Jasmine. Full Story

Certain corners of the internet have been damp down there after seeing this photo of Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Fassbender getting down at the FOX after-party on Sunday night following the Golden Globes celebrating the Best Drama win for 12 Years A Slave. I would be damp if Chiwetel Ejiofor was in the shot. 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

Gwyneth Paltrow and Johnny Depp were seen together in LA on the set of Mordecai yesterday. There were rumours circulating a few weeks that he hates her or something because she’s a pain in the ass. How come she can’t hate him for being a pain in the ass? It’s not like Johnny Depp isn’t a total cliché. Full Story

Lately at award shows, Julia Roberts has been heading to the podium barefoot. At the Palm Springs Film Festival however, where she presented to her friend Tom Hanks, she kept them on. Maybe she thought those old ass Academy voters who live there would not have been impressed. Julia was with Tom Hanks that year at the Golden Globes, you remember?, when she gave us “WHO’s NATALIE???” But she also caught up with her buddy Bradley Cooper. Full Story

Chickpeas and water is what she’s recommending to start your year. Cameron Diaz has just released her first book The Body Book. Cam says she too indulged over the holidays: “We eat pork roast for Christmas, tacos the next day. Full Story

There were some major players at the Palm Springs Film Festival this weekend. As Tom Hanks said at the event, “The holidays have come to an end but for some the celebrity mule train is just beginning”. Oscar nominations voting ends on Wednesday (and will be announced next Thursday) and since many Oscar voters live in Palm Springs, it’s always an opportunity for one last hustle to get their names on the ballot. Full Story
