Look what happened! On the final day in Cannes, Oscar Isaac was at the Palais and Justin Timberlake wasn’t there to cockblock him. Which means we have lots and lots of photos -- good photos! -- of Oscar to enjoy. Oscar accepted the Grand Prix prize for Inside Llewyn Davis on behalf of the Coen Brothers. Full Story

Tony Leung came to support Carina Lau. She was kinda overdressed in purple Elie Saab at the photo call and wore white Elie Saab, with a split-back cape, on the carpet. You know I can’t hate on anything with a cape, even if it is the terminally boring Elie Saab. Again, as previously noted, Carina turns 48 this year. Full Story

As expected, Nicole Kidman won the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival this year. No one else came close. There were some looks I liked more than others. But overall, it was a spectacular showing. Here are Nicole’s final two dresses at the Palais. Last night she was in a rather boring white Armani. Full Story

With Steven Spielberg, never the most controversial or daring filmmaker in a room, as the jury president, many expected the Cannes prizes to go to Hollywood-friendly films, but Spielberg surprised many when his jury picked the French film Blue is the Warmest Colour, adapted from a French graphic novel about a girl falling in love with an older woman, for the Palme d’Or. Full Story

James Gray, a Cannes favourite, screened his highly anticipated The Immigrant today at the festival. The reviews I’ve read have been medium to good. Once again, Gray is working with his muse, Joaquin Phoenix. They say however that he may have found a new one in Marion Cotillard. Her performance is generating some serious buzz. Full Story

This Hot Bitch... Look at her. Sharon Stone. She’s a big deal in Cannes, every year, and she works hard for amfAR, and she was working it hard last night at the annual gala raising money for AIDS research in a white gown that was made for retired strippers. Check out the back of it. Full Story

As I mentioned yesterday in this post, a trip to space accompanied by Leonardo DiCaprio was auctioned off at the amfAR gala in Cannes last night for $1.5 million. Another prize involving Leo was available -- premiere tickets to The Wolf Of Wall Street, a luxury hotel stay, and Chopard watch, and invitations to Oscar parties -- and that went for $2. Full Story

Cannes Thursday is always amfAR. Every year, Harvey Weinstein auctions off a kiss or something. No, not him, don’t worry. Either Ryan Gosling or Robert Pattinson, or whichever “hunk” is available at the festival that year. Not sure if there’s a kiss to bid for this year but according to Page Six Full Story

It has been two years since I dedicated a post to Hollywood Ebola Paris Hilton. For those of you new to the site, here’s why it’s called Hollywood Ebola: because everything it’s associated with goes to sh-t, bleeds out, professionally and personally. Most recent victim: Brian Urlacher. Full Story

I’ll add more photos as they become available but wanted to get this article off asap. Here’s Nicole Kidman, with Ang Lee, at the Palais in Cannes tonight. That dress looked familiar to me. I thought it might be Valentino Haute Couture. It sure looks like it. And it sure looks like the one Anne Hathaway was supposed to wear to the Oscars before her last-minute change into the pink Prada to avoid clashing with Amanda Seyfried, you remember?

George Clooney was photographed in London last night after dinner with friends. UK gossips have suggested that he seemed unsteady on his feet. I believe it. I’ve seen it. It’s a good time when George goes out. For the last few months, George has been directing The Monuments Men. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I can’t believe Michael Douglas won’t be receiving an Oscar nomination for his work in Behind The Candelabra. Because he is BRILLIANT in Behind The Candelabra. An actor still at the very, very, very top of his game. And Matt Damon too. And Steven Soderbergh.

Behind The Candelabra is so f-cking good, I watched it twice last night, back to back. You know what the word is? It’s a word I never, ever, ever use because it’s so, so, SO overused:


But how else to say it? Fabulous, and sad, and hysterical. The kind of movie you keep playing, if only to learn the lines. What makes it even more fabulous is that fabulous was not their goal. They played it straight, no pun intended. In playing it straight, the authenticity gave way to the fabulous, organically.  Read Full Intro

Surrounded by beautiful women, of course. Click here for Part 1 posted yesterday. Last night Leonardo DiCaprio, still in Cannes, hit up the De Grisogono party at the Eden Roc. The De Grisogono party is one of the more hilarious festival events for its high low factor. Full Story

It was 50 years ago that Cleopatra was released. It was the movie that brought together Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. A restored version of the film was screened in Cannes tonight, presented by Jessica Chastain. Taylor’s son Chris Wilding and Burton’s daughter Kate were expected to attend. Full Story
