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

Tina Fey on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar. A much more worthy beauty ideal than so many others. Most others. Including Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman. Speaking of Nicole Kidman, in the magazine, Tina discusses Botox 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

This is Emily Blunt in New York today with Matt Damon shooting The Adjustment Bureau. No need to be worried about having your girlcrush destroyed here… Scott & Claudio, longtime readers with whom I’ve been having a love affair over email for years, were fortunate to meet Emily at TIFF when she was at the festival promoting The Young Victoria. Full Story

Oscar is still over 5 months away but the buzz for Carey Mulligan has been building since Sundance in January. An Education finally premiered in LA last night officially kicking off Carey’s campaign. So far, every prediction list and website has cited her as a virtual lock for a nomination with critic after critic gushing about her performance. Full Story

Weekend Winner

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

Did they read for this too?

The Jessicas… No doubt they both would have been desperate for this – The Adjustment Bureau with Matt Damon who gets the pick of the scripts – but they were up against Emily Blunt. Please. If Emily wants it, why bother letting them read for it? Here’s Emily on set in New York yesterday. Full Story

Cleanse with Emma

Thompson. It’s my birthday tomorrow and it’s a gift to see Emma Thompson. She was at the UK premiere last night of Morris: A Life With Bells on in London looking, as always, like she’s the life of the party. She is! In the very best way. In a way that Filthy Scab could never be. Have you ever watched Emma Thompson at an awards show? Kills me. Full Story

Emma Stone in red

Emily won’t go to Lick with me for my birthday because she has a family event but still I’m giving her some Emma Stone on a long ass Thursday morning. My mother taught me how to guilt trip and I’m very good at it. But it’s not hard to promote Emma Stone. I love Emma Stone. Emma Stone is one of the reasons Lindsay Lohan’s only job opportunities these days involve hosting parties in Singapore. Full Story

Front Row Amazingness

Please. I nearly fainted. Look at this front row in London at Burberry last night. My Gwyneth sandwiched between my Emma and Mario Testino, and Liv Tyler on the other side, then Daisy Lowe, then Mary-Kate Olsen, and publicly loved up Freida Pinto and Dev Patel. In another section, Victoria Beckham was also seated front row…but she wasn’t invited to the girl party. Full Story

There’s Shelfy…and then there’s Natalie. Jessica Biel has always referred to the “Top Tier”, a club to which she does not belong that, of course, includes Natalie Portman on a short list of young actors constantly presented with the most prestigious parts. Biel has blamed her exclusion from the “Top Tier” on her good looks, lamenting that it’s her beauty that has held her back Full Story
