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?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 29, 2009 07:22:07 September 29, 2009 07:22:07

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

Natalie by day and night

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

Robin, Keanu, and fangirling for Rebecca

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 16, 2009 16:38:00 September 16, 2009 16:38:00

The Private Lives of Pippa Lee premiered at TIFF last night. I was assigned to the cover the carpet for etalk and when Rebecca Miller arrived, it was like Robert Pattinson for me. No one but Rebecca Miller could wear what she wore. I know you think it’s weird, I know you think it’s not something Jennifer Aniston would wear and therefore not acceptable. Full Story

Drew at TIFF

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 16, 2009 07:27:17 September 16, 2009 07:27:17

Many of you have been eager for news about Drew Barrymore and Whip It at TIFF. Drew and the cast attended the press conference yesterday and her reception here in Toronto has been rock star-like, surprising to many of us who had no idea, even though Drew is most definitely an A+ name, that she inspired that kind of … frenzy. Full Story

Front row with Anna

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 14, 2009 09:47:29 September 14, 2009 09:47:29

One of the coveted seats at New York Fashion Week was for Alexander Wang. And our girl Rachel McAdams not only sat in the front row, she sat in the front row next to The Anna. Anna Wintour actually took her sunglasses off and smiled too. These are not coincidental gestures. In the world of fashion, these seating assignments always mean something… And some are already speculating Full Story
