I’m telling you, that’s why the Patriots lost in the Super Bowl to the Giants the first time, in Phoenix. They were undefeated that season. And...Tom Brady CUT HIS HAIR for the only game that mattered! Ben Affleck wasn’t so stupid. He kept a playoff beard going through award season and, well, as we know, it worked. Full Story

She was the silent producer. If they allowed four people up there, she should have been included. And we all know how much work she did. Because while she may not have been responsible for the filmmaking, Oscar is often more about how the film is presented, and less about how the film actually plays. Full Story

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are going strong, and despite the Oscar snub, my goodness is it paying off. Is Argo pretty much a lock for Best Picture at this point? (I hated it, did anyone else hate it? [Lainey: I liked it very much.] And I usually really enjoy Ben’s direction). The success of the Affleck campaign is due in no small part to Ben and Jen’s Walt and June Cleaver act. Full Story

Jennifer Garner did indeed accompany Ben Affleck to the BAFTAs. Must leave nothing to chance. Not until February 24. Not until the big show. She’s the Mellie Grant of Hollywood. Which is why while Bradley Cooper and the rest were getting sweaty and messy at the BAFTA parties, the Afflecks kept their game faces on. Full Story

The BAFTAs are happening on Sunday. WHY DOES IT ALWAYS HAVE TO BE THE SAME DAY AS THE GRAMMYS?!?! And it’s Chinese New Year on Sunday. So Monday will be busy here. But I might be a bit slow getting going because of the celebrations. Anyway, Ben Affleck’s Argo has been nominated for the BAFTA Best Film and Best Director. Full Story

How much longer can Ben Affleck ride this wave of pity? It’s three weeks to Oscar. Voting ends two weeks tomorrow. And the Directors Guild has just joined the Actors Guild and the Producers Guild and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and the Broadcast Film Critics Association in naming Ben Affleck and Argo the best of the year. Full Story

It’s a month to Oscar which means it’s time to yell at Vanity Fair for its annual Hollywood Issue. As always, the limited diversity that’s featured in this supposed celebration of the best of the industry is hidden behind the cover. Of course, yes, they suck for this, totally. But if the Hollywood Issue is a reflection of Hollywood, well, isn’t this actually a pretty accurate reflection of Hollywood? Hollywood is white and no women over 40 are allowed. Full Story

This year we get the Afflecks... You know how hard the Afflecks have been working. Last night, from the moment they arrived, it was work time, did you see? Ben Affleck hit the carpet before Jennifer Garner did -- she must have been held up getting out of the car. As soon as she joined him though he was right in her ear -- downloading information/gossip/strategising, whatever it was, she dutifully nodded, understanding the game plan, gave him a quick kiss, and they were off. Full Story

You know why. Because she cleaned up his mess. This is what she does. He forgets to thank George Clooney and Grant Heslov and he tells her to get up there and fix it for him. She’s been fixing it for him for almost 10 years now. Ben Affleck, the award winning director, was fixed by Jennifer Garner. Full Story

What? I’m just saying, they looked like they were having a lot of fun together on the red carpet. There are so many reasons to love Sofia Vergara a lot. This boring dress is not one of those reasons, but whatever. My point is she makes me smile. I look at her and I smile. I listen to her and I smile. Full Story

She had to bring him. She had to. She could not face the Afflecks alone. I don’t understand why. If I’m JLO, I’d face the Afflecks alone every.single.time. Especially in this dress. No, I don’t like this dress. In fact, I think it’s a gross dress -- much more typical of Zuhair Murad than Marion Cotillard’s last week Full Story

There didn’t seem to be any joy in Ben Affleck’s face when he arrived at the Critics’ Choice Awards last night. Every time the camera cut to him he had the sad eyes. And it seemed like the entire room felt sorry for him too. As you know, earlier in the day, Affleck was left off the list, along with Kathryn Bigelow, when the Academy announced the Oscar nominations. Full Story

Argo received 7 Oscar nominations today including Best Picture. So Ben Affleck, who is listed on the official producer list, along with George Clooney, has an invitation. But what he really wanted, though he probably won’t admit it, was the Best Director acknowledgement. And they said, nope, not yet. Full Story
