Major fangirl crushing. Last night in New York at the premiere of Meryl’s latest It’s Complicated, Tina showed up to support her co-star Alec Baldwin, of course, but there’s no doubt a lot of respect for La Streep too. After all, aside from her obvious CAPABILITIES, Meryl Streep, now 60, has had a run of box office dominance that’s been remarkable, especially considering this is an industry that ordinarily favours and celebrates youth above all. Full Story

She doesn’t get enough love. Today’s a good day for it. Kristen Wiig was at the Gotham Awards last night. Am all over what she’s wearing, it works for her. Also reminds me of my friend Duana who can wear red tights like no other bitch and also has long, long legs up to her neck. 2009 was a good year for Kristen. Full Story

Kate Winslet. Some celebrities, when they’ve been up in our faces for a while on promotion or whatever, promise they’ll go away quietly once their sh-t is over. And then they never leave. Kate Winslet said last year following promotion for Revolutionary Road and her Oscar run for The Reader that she had no plans to work and wanted to chill out, be with her kids, stay away from the spotlight for a while. Full Story

I love football movies. Especially when they’re corny. But Laura laughed at me last week when I told her I wanted to see The Blind Side. You’re probably laughing at me for wanting to see The Blind Side. But Michael Oher’s story is irresistible. And while I can’t stand the Baltimore Ravens because I hate Ray Lewis, it’s nothing short of remarkable what Oher has accomplished. Full Story

Friday afternoon at MuchMusic – Laura and I were working late, unable to escape the building before MOD where New Moon stars Kellan Lutz and Bronson Pelletier were making an appearance. They’d been lining up all day, and the anticipation only increased over the hours, unleashing itself in the form of earsplitting screams that reverberated throughout the building. Full Story

While Third Lip is scaring people on red carpets, Cate Blanchett continues to stick it in Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman’s ass with the Real. Anna Wintour loves Cate Blanchett. It’s like she gets a cover every year. Full Story

Brilliant. Word is, they’re moving ahead with Spiderman 4 and Sam Raimi is currently casting for supporting characters and new villains… Rachel McAdams is being seriously considered to play the Black Cat who, in the comics, becomes a sort of Spidey stalker. Spiderman Fatal Attraction. She’s perfect for it. Full Story

Carrie Underwood changed ten thousand times last night while co-hosting the Country Music Awards. And every f-cking dress was the sh-ts. I know it’s country and it’s accepted, unwillingly for some, that there’s a different style requirement but this girl, she took it to a new level of ass. Full Story
