On the Met steps last night shooting a father daughter scene with Michael Douglas and Oliver Stone. Now that’s a gown. And I love the colour. And she is beautiful. And I’m so sorry but am in studio all day for several shoots, and had a deadline on a draft for a major piece and now I’ve run out of time. Full Story

After my post on An Evening With Meryl Streep at the ROM many of you asked if there was video. This was the interview with Johanna Schneller during which Streep offered many, many memorable insights including the one about being “capable”. Full Story

Only one more sleep and Glee comes back. Jumpy claps! Tomorrow’s episode focuses on Artie and his backstory. Also his penis. No, for reals. Great interview here with Kevin McHale who plays Artie about his hidden talents and about the musical numbers featured in the new episode. Full Story

The Twi-Hards have turned them into monarchs, waving from balconies and blessing their public. Check out Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, and Robert Pattinson in Paris with New Moon director Chris Weitz greeting fans from the balcony of their hotel before heading off for more promotion. I can hear my friend Emily’s Sapphic hard-on for Kristen all the way from Vancouver… Totally agree. Full Story

You ready? 30 Rock is back. Tonight. Tina was at Letterman last night to promote the season premiere, charming and adorable as usual. But not as popular as she should be. I’m sure you’ve heard about the Forbes List? The top earners on prime time TV? Tyra Banks came in 1st. Tina Fey came in 7th. Full Story

At the NY premiere of An Education last night, Maggie Gyllenhaal accompanied husband Peter Sarsgaard on the carpet in a black strapless jumpsuit. Not even my Maggie. It's Michelle's nightmare: talent showing lumps from the light. So she outlaws it when she's producing. At the Oscars for instance, she won’t allow it on camera. Full Story

It’s an easy prediction. Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut opens on Friday and, without significant competition, riding the wave of positive buzz, calling on the “Girl Power” collective, Whip It should win at the box office this weekend. I’ve not seen it yet. I did however note the remarks of my colleagues back at TIFF Full Story
