The Academy announced today that Tom Cruise will present at the Oscars, his first in five years. And in front of an audience that will include George Clooney and Brad Pitt who have, over the last decade or so, arguably exceeded him in reputation and prestige. Sanity too? The GMD’s last trip to the Kodak was in 2007. Full Story

I like Kristen Wiig so much but that f-cking choker was so objectionable to me it almost affected how I felt about the wearer, this is what you risk with a terrible accessory. Like, I’m all for understated Balenciaga. And in many ways, Kristen Wiig is very understated Balenciaga. It’s the anti-Marchesa. Full Story

While in theory we’re restricting ourselves to what happens at the show, in reality certain truths are self-evident – in this case, that Giuliana (Lainey: Duana keeps calling her Giuliana DePandi which is maybe my favourite thing in life, ever) irritated a wide swath of people far more than usual on the red carpet, and, in keeping with the SAGs being the awards where they really get to let it all hang out, they made less of an attempt to hide it. Full Story

My favourite story of the day. Maybe I’m delirious from the altitude here in Utah with all the nosebleeds I’ve been getting but when this report came across my blackberry earlier, I could barely contain myself. Aretha Franklin has cancelled her wedding to her William Wickerson. It’s the statement they released that cracked me up:"Regretfully, To Our Friends and Supporters: Will and I have decided we were moving a little too fast, and there were a number of things that had not been thought through thoroughly. Full Story

So you saw most of this play out, right?  On the carpet, we saw the dresses.  Sofia Vergara’s teal – a colour which I already think is kind of alarmingly muted – is tamped down to almost depressing.   But it fits her like no other actress’s dress ever does.  And other than the mincing down the stairs (time for E! to look into a dumbwaiter, maybe?), she looked comfortable. Full Story

First of all, I’ve never had to defend liking such a critically acclaimed show as I do Game Of Thrones. I know my TV tastes usually run to people ranting their feelings at length. But I am addicted to this show and no, I don’t usually watch fantasy, and yes, the show is way, way worth it by the end of the first episode, let alone the nine awesome hours that follow. Full Story

Remember when my friend Lara and I were cut down by Anna Wintour’s eyes at the MET Gala a few years ago? Click here for a refresher. It was the best. I mean, you know that woman is a Master Bitch. And to have experienced it first hand... these are the small joys of the job. Full Story

Mimi’s kidney failure

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 4, 2012 17:04:00 January 4, 2012 17:04:00

Here’s a photo Mariah Carey posted on her Twitter and her website: her husband Nick Cannon has been hospitalised for “mild kidney failure”. While he clearly looks distressed, his wife has decided, out of love of course, to cram herself onto that small bed to comfort him, jamming him and his poor kidney into one of the bars. Full Story
