Scarlett Johansson was on Letterman last night. I love this swirl she wears in her hair once in a while. She can do it and still come off exactly in her time – modern and sophisticated. She talked about living in Paris and talked about the Parisian rudeness thing. And she lives in the “artists” area. Full Story

It’s really too bad more people don’t feel this way. Carey Mulligan was in New York this morning still promoting Inside Llewyn Davis. Matt Lauer reminded her of when she once said that she’d rather go nude than sing on camera. She was super cute about it. And those dimples came out. Full Story

Two of our favourite women

Let’s start with Amy Poehler. I love that Amy Poehler isn’t too big to still be doing sh-t like this – running around NYC in a goofy costume crashing into people with a camera and singing Christmas carols all while generally being funny and awesome and spontaneous. She’s the BEST. Full Story

I’m sorry about yesterday. As Jacek mentioned in Smutty Tingles, I was disorganised. This happens from time to time whenever I try to maximise schedule efficiency. On Wednesday night I was out at two events until late. I slept 3 hours, woke up to blog the next morning, rushed to pack and then left for work at 7:30am to blog some more before preparing for The Social, which airs live at 1pm, and then it was off to the airport at 2:15pm for my flight to New York. Full Story

If this is an act… She totally deserves that Oscar. It’s 20 minutes long, and I know you might not have the time to watch 20 minutes of Jennifer Lawrence, but if you do, you won’t come out the other side feeling sh-tty. That’s not to say she’s, like, Ron Burgundy or anything. Full Story

Tina and Amy. Twice.

I mean, it’s a no-brainer. Isn’t it? Tina and Amy have done the impossible – they’ve secured hosting spots for the Golden Globes for the next two years in a row. They were awesome, everyone agreed. They were awesome because they A) Didn’t pull any punches – they left everything on the floor; and B) Were equal opportunity offenders – Taylor Swift jokes weren’t the only ones that landed (they’re just the ones that everyone remembers some 10 months later); and finally, and most importantly… C) They didn’t f*cking care if you liked it. Full Story

It’s Monday morning. You’ve got five horrible days to get through before (Canadian) Thanksgiving. Your job’s a joke/you’re broke/your love life’s D.O.A. etc. BUT I’ve got something to show you that’s going to inspire you to keep kicking butt all week long, and it comes in the form of, of course, Amy Poehler. Full Story

Tina and the new cast members

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 30, 2013 14:43:43 September 30, 2013 14:43:43

Saturday Night Live kicked off a new season on Saturday with host Tina Fey and several new cast members. One woman…and all white. So after 39 seasons, you know, take comfort in the fact that not much has changed. Well, at least it didn’t suck. How could it suck with Tina around? And Jesse Pinkman? Everyone’s favourite sketch was Girls and Blerta (Kate McKinnon was so good in that). Full Story

Kerry covers FLARE

Did you know Kerry Washington went to Spence, the same school in New York as Gwyneth Paltrow? We need to find a copy of those yearbooks. We need to write a show about this. About a girl like Kerry Washington at school with girls like Gwyneth Paltrow. Duana? I know you’re reading. Because, of course, as we’ve noted several times before, we are Kerry Washington fangirls here at LaineyGossip and Duana is our Heather #1. Full Story

Cate Blanchett: spirit of the 80s

This is worthy of a punch in the face. Do it now. Look at this Armani ad featuring Cate Blanchett and punch yourself in the face from the gorgessity and the awesome. There’s a distinct 80s vibe about the styling here, non? And the lighting, the tone… It’s a little…Carol Bouquet for Chanel, right? I’ve been complaining about Mr Armani’s stuck-in-the-80s imagination on the runway for a while now. Full Story

Over to you Nicole…and Cate, and Julia, and Sandy

And Kate and Marion and how many others? It was reported yesterday that Meryl Streep will not be contending for Best Actress Oscar this year. Instead, her performance in August: Osage County will be submitted in the supporting category which means that she and Julia Roberts won’t be going head to head against each other but that she will be going head to head on Oprah Winfrey for her role in The Butler. Full Story
