Dear Gossips,

They aired a feature on Casey Affleck yesterday morning on CBS Sunday Morning.

It's looking like Emma Stone will for sure be at every stop during award season, as a nominee. It would be a major shock if La La Land isn't a contender across all the major categories.

The Hollywood Film Awards are about as significant as the People’s Choice Awards which is to say, not significant at all.
