For the record, I think she was robbed for American Beauty and I think she was inexcusably robbed for Being Julia. Criminal that Hilary Swank has two and the incomparable Annette has nothing, don"t you think?
Still…unless Ms Streep gets a nod for Prada, I"ll be gutted if Ms Bening doesn"t walk away with what"s rightly hers next February. Full Story

My colleagues at eTalk just reported tonight that Brad Pitt"s Babel will be one of the featured pictures at this year"s Toronto International Film Festival and organisers are hopeful that both Brad and Cate Blanchett will attend. Not to sound biased or anything but my hometown really does put on the best show, like, ever. You bet your boob job I"ll be conveniently "visiting my mother" between September 7 - 16.
In today"s issue: Nicole and Keith in Tahiti, Britney photoshopped, Beyonce waxed, a feng shui analysis of Brad"s home, JT"s persistent fungus, a compliment for Eva, a compliment for Kate, and Gabriel Aubrey isn"t perfect?

Over the weekend, Celebrity Baby Blog was notified about a memory stick supposedly containing 450 exclusive, private baby shower photos from Brad and Angelina’s African birthing holiday. Here is just one of those photos apparently being offered up to the tabloids. Full Story

Well isn’t this turning into a media relations blowjob of sorts? Nicole Kidman has handed out free beer, been photographed picking up her niece from school, and now visiting a children’s hospital with her son and daughter in tow – all during the same week as her wedding? Quite a page out of the Jolie Pitt book of publicity, don’t you think. Full Story

Here"s Nic making a pit stop in China on her way back to Australia for the rumoured wedding with country manlights and his dry thin lips. Take a look at her hands in relation to her face. The skin in particular. You notice a difference? There are babies with more wrinkles than Nicole Kidman!!!
Speaking of babies - that suspicious bump from last week was decidedly less prominent in Shanghai over the weekend, prompting most fairweather gossips to jump over to the empty womb side of the pregnancy pendulum. Full Story

Well this was a surprise, non? Pacey snapped in Paris with Diane Kruger, a new romance that came out of nowhere. I have no idea when they got together, I have no idea how. The only thing I know about Joshua Jackson is what he"s like when he"s in Vancouver. And as I"ve mentioned before, when he"s single, he likes to pick up and pick up plentiful. Full Story

By all accounts, Shiloh and the Gang have returned to Los Angeles. But even though they have yet to be sighted, everywhere I went this weekend, people were talking about the Chosen One and her family photo frenzy. Naturally, everyone has an opinion. Some think pimping your kid - even for charity - is NEVER a good thing. Hardcore "Brangelina" fans or "BAMZS" fans as they like to call themselves these days can"t stop gushing about the Jolie-Pitts" admirable philanthropic generosity, arguing that so many others would have eventually profited from the pictures anyway, it only made sense to turn the intense public interest into awareness and financial aid for some of the world"s most disadvantaged citizens. These, by the way, are the same BAMZS fans who think my "conspiracy and media manipulation theories" are full of sh*t, and that I"m a nasty bitch for even implying that the Pitts have been matching every Aniston tit with a tat of their own. Apparently they don"t think Brad and Angie need to engage in Hollywood media warfare anymore.
Right then. Shall we move on to less amateur discussions?
In today"s monster issue: the Shiloh world domination and a philanthropic suggestion for Hollywood"s most (openly) philanthropic heavyweights, Britney regresses, Ben poses, Jen glows, Elle"s flirtation, being - gulp - honest about Paris, the Mimi debate rages again, the Family Beckham on display, and clues clues everywhere.

Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, at the tender age of 15 days, is already changing our world. She is dominating our discussions, she is captivating an international audience, and she is helping to further cement her parents" status as the reigning Zeus and Hera of a Land called Celebrity. Much more so than her Scientological counterpart Suri Cruise, who has yet to be strategically product placed and who is becoming more urban legend and less flesh and bone with each passing day.

A full column will follow later tonight but I couldn"t resist showing you the Shiloh shots from People.
They are glorious without being cheesy. And Angelina is breathtaking. Even more so because my expert makeup friends at Kiss & Makeup
have carefully studied the cover shot and have concluded that she is NOT wearing much makeup at all. Hate her! Love her! Worship her! And save it with the "they"ve probably been touched up" snarkiness. We are gossip lovers. We are gossiphounds. We LIVE for sh*t like this. So celebrate the arrival of the Chosen One and just be grateful you"re living in the Golden Age of Celebrity Smut, led by two major players who are Olympian deities in their own right and who can manipulate better than Zeus himself.
The article itself is, as you would expect, pure fluff. But I do love how the magazine gently but pointedly gives the other rags a condescending shot in the ass - especially for getting so many of their "exclusive" details wrong. People"s in a feisty mood this week!
Anyway, my personal favourite is the one where Brad cradles Shiloh"s head with the "little girls just crush me caption." Swooning now.
OK, must run. Have the CTV Fall Launch Vancouver event to attend this afternoon and an hour of makeup to endure. HUGE thanks to CM for sending me the scans.
Fresh column tonight (Thursday). Til then, I am yours in gossip,
UPDATE: Hope you saw them while they were up because People got mad at me and I had to protect my Chinese ass.
Obviously, they really really really want you to BUY the magazine, so do your part, shell out five bucks at the grocery store this weekend, drool all over the baby gorgessity, and help People continue the Family Pitt world domination.

Yesterday. The day that Jennifer Aniston was supposed to be basking in the glory of finally owning a box office, Brad Pitt and his triple baby momma decide to dominate the headlines once again. Because what"s a $38 million dollar weekend take compared to the first photos of one of the most famous babies ever born??? I know some of you are sick of my mantra but seriously y"all…there really are NO coincidences in Hollywood. Full Story

As if public interest in the Family Pitt wasn"t intense enough, Shiloh"s arrival has opened up a whole new motherload of speculation and rumour surrounding details of her birth and how her megafamous parents plan to live their lives going forward. And while In Touch claims to be he one leading the way with up to the minute reporting on everything Pitt, I wouldn"t put as much stock into the Life & Style "exclusives". Remember the rules of tabloid hierarchy y"all
. And just in case you forgot - this is the same publication that claimed Tom and Katie were over and that Jessica and Nick were going to have a baby.
In today"s issue: Angie, Brad, herpes, and rehashing rumour central, Ben"s mysterious illness, examining the body Reese, just a little gloating re: Jude & Sienna, an update on the Kidmans, praise for Bellucci, Nicole Richie stops dying, and warming up to Jen and Vince.
