Dear Gossips,

After Tom Brokaw’s remarks about the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last year and specifically the presence of Lindsay Lohan being the reason why he decided not to go, don’t you wonder about the people who turn down the invitation? Like, how many times has the Brange been asked to go.  Read Full Intro

Jon Snow Knows

Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 5 Well, there it was. All the sex we were waiting for – all the nudity finally arrived in episode 5, not a minute too soon. And of course, with the exception of the duel to the death in the very first scene, all that happened this episode was a bunch of people talking (what did Gramma Tyrell call Tyrion?  A  beleaguered banker?), so it was good that we had the sex, although raise your hand if you, like me, thought that with all the talk of sex and bedding and “how did you know what I wanted”, we might finally find out the mystery of Podrick? But there were more important fish to fry in this episode, and so it came to pass that the least consequential of all the things was Jon Snow getting not-naked-enough with Ygritte in what is apparently a hot spring that they happened to have all to themselves. Full Story

Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 4 recap So there was that episode. Delicious! Pace like a …not a train, exactly, but a really satisfying stretch of highway where everything moves along and there’s lots of stuff to look at. I had fun, and while sometimes having fun with Game Of Thrones means being terrified and wincing at the brutality, it’s not like it can happen with any other show. Full Story

Game Of Thrones Season 3 episode 3 recap The chairs. Of course the chairs. And everything else that happened in only an hour.   But before we get there, let’s take a minute for the arrows – those arrows that couldn’t find their target if they’d been directed by the Gods. Full Story

No Story So Good A Drink Won’t Make It Better

Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 2 recap ….except of course that this episode was kind of slow.  Yes, characterized most by the fact that everyone is, or will be, on the move – but still basically a lot of laid pipe for what will be happening circa episode 4.   What was nice about it, of course, was that we got a little breathing room to spend some time with the characters, assumedly so that when things start going fever-pitch later in the season we’ll remember who was facing what particularly wrenching emotional dilemma. Full Story

Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 1 recap We’re back!  Delightfully, though it’s been almost a year, absolutely nothing has changed in Westeros since we were last there, except for perceptions.  I spent most of the fist episode going “okay, so here’s who they didn’t kill”. Full Story

A few members of the cast of Game Of Thrones, along with George R R Martin and showrunners, David Benioff and DB Weiss, were at the television academy yesterday in advance of the Season 3 premiere on March 31... Are you ready?!? Did I mention Arya is adorable in real life and Bran is SO pretty it’s unfair? There’s none of that Hollywood Machine Child to either of them. Full Story

Covered the Game Of Thrones Season 3 premiere red carpet last night at the Chinese Theatre. The last time I covered a movie carpet at the Chinese Theatre it was Gangster Squad in January. The carpet was easily 4 times longer. And with 4 times LESS people. Or more. You can imagine how long the cast list was last night for GoT, right? We’ve been conditioned at these events to expect that they’ll arrive just before the start of the screening and not stop and make you feel that they’re doing you a favour by showing up and talking. Full Story

Pretty sure no one else is going to care about this but my eyes bugged at these photos of Theon Greyjoy on the beach in Miami and initially I thought that this is actually how he dresses for real but it turns out he’s shooting a movie which...I’m almost disappointed about because, well, look. Full Story

They were at the HBO party. I just did a brief search for Rose Leslie who plays Gidget or whatever and she didn’t come up although that doesn’t mean she wasn’t there since American photographers don’t really recognise British actors, including Michelle Dockery who was mislabelled “Rumer Willis” for a while on Getty Images. Full Story
