Love her so much. She knows she must look foolish but she also doesn't give a sh-t. Why not have a good time? So many of her peers take themselves too seriously. Emma's like - sure, whatever, I can walk a pig down the carpet. Give me the lead. And I'll laugh my way through. And everyone will adore me. Full Story

Tina Fey, in addition to all her other jobs, is also busy promoting Date Night. Last night she stopped by Letterman. You’ve seen the Letterman arrivals. They’re always in their tight dresses and high heels. In the rain however, Tina Fey has no time for that. Yellow wellies, very practical. Full Story

She had it cut several weeks ago and we haven’t given it its proper due. Looks amazing. Love her so much. Emma Thompson is currently making promotional rounds promoting Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang, due for release in the UK this weekend, not due for release in North America until late August. Full Story

As I’ve already noted several times, for the last few months, they have successfully whipped me into a frenzy for Kick-Ass. It’s been a brilliant online campaign. And finally I’m seeing it at a screening later on this morning. Can’t wait. Unfortunately reviews have been embargoed until release. Full Story

We’ve just cleared our second award season in a row without Cate Blanchett. Missed her so much. Cate has focused on work at home in Australia, without too many film commitments, save Robin Hood which will fight for box office supremacy in May, due for release just a week after RDJ’s Iron Man 2. Full Story

Kristen Stewart’s best hair

Her mullet has grown out into a layered, shaggy mop. LOVE it. Especially the first step at the front, like a grown out fringe. She looks amazing, head to toe amazing gorgessity. The makeup is great, the dress is pure sex, am fangirling for her legs, though I would have chosen a less sparkly shoe. It’s an Eva Longoria shoe, you know see what I mean? Whatever. Full Story

Last was the annual Bunny Hop at FAO Schwartz in support of the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre. Tina Fey brought her daughter Alice. As you saw, Tina was just in LA for the Oscars co-presenting with RDJ. In addition to writing and producing and acting on 30 Rock, nearing taping for the season finale soon, she’ll also be promoting Date Night with Steve Carell, due out on April 9th. Full Story

French Forehead Tittaes

LOVE HER SO MUCH. My Marion’s Funny or Die video – a cheeky acknowledgment of her superior French gorgessity and a man’s obsession with breasts. She also looks ridiculously beautiful in this shoot. The most amazing skin, great eye makeup, sleek and chic and sophisticated, and if Jacek ever had a chance (obviously never), I’d pack his bags for him and send him on his way. Full Story

Best in Show: Sandra Bullock

Post By Duana There are three reasons that guys I know love Sandra Bullock. 1) If you ran your hands through her hair she wouldn't scream "Don't, I just did it!" 2) Get the impression she's not going to be an uptight "lights out before we get naked" kind of girl. 3) So endlessly relaxed when she's being interviewed on these carpets - even tonight when she's poised to win and is trying really hard to pretend like she hasn't heard all the rumours that call her a lock - she is so easy and fun and f-cking real that she manages to not only have a good interview with a guy who got this job out of absolutely nowhere (seriously, who was that EW guy in the post-red carpet pre-show show?) but also create a catchphrase. Full Story

Best Oscar black: Carey Mulligan

It was Prada and it was perfect. And the styling, the earrings, the clutch, her hair, it was perfect. Truth: am not feeling the shoes. The dress was so ornate, something simpler on the bottom seemed more appropriate. Having said that, they’re not totally objectionable upon closer inspection. And the thing about Carey, as Duana noted earlier, is that she was genuinely thrilled to be there. Full Story

Best Oscar Makeup: Kate Winslet

Not a fan of the dress. It didn’t totally suck but... wasn’t crazy about the two piecey-ness of it. No matter. It’s not what she wore. It’s the makeup. Her makeup lately has been crazy good. So good some of you think she’s had her eyes done. Or something. Lucky was our makeup artist on Olympic Morning. Full Story
