Tom Cruise did not walk the carpet with Katie Holmes. Instead, he went straight inside and presented the final award of the night, a responsibility usually reserved for a big deal name. Thank you Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol. Tom Cruise keeps hanging in there. You do have to admire his tenacity, don’t you? He will never let you push him out. Full Story

It is surely the apocalypse, because here I sit, in front of pictures of Natalie Portman, and I feel...fine. I have no rants here.  Are you still there? I don't know what to say, almost. I like the dress. Not on everyone, not to every event, but it was beautiful vintage Christian Dior, and the delicate polka dots work for me. Full Story

I didn’t hate the silver Zuhair Murad as much as some of you. Having said that...it’s Zuhair Murad. So not-hate will never become like or love. My feelings about JLo from last night though aren’t focused on her attire.How can they be when there’s so much other business to sh-t on. Like the body language she had going on with Cameron Diaz while they were presenting. Full Story

As you know, I don’t care about who fathered January Jones’s baby. I should. But she is beige. You throw some girl sh-t onto her however, and, well, girl sh-t never sucks.January showed up to Vanity Fair last night. Jason Sudeikis, who was, at one time, rumoured to be the sire, was there too. With his new bonafide Olivia Wilde. Full Story

Let me start with the dress...which I quite liked. It’s Givenchy. The back is awesome. And so well suited to her aesthetic. I just think she couldn’t hold it up, you know? Like carry it properly. Her body has a small part to do with that, sure, but mostly it’s the oh-please-I’d-rather-be-developing-a-character-with-David-Fincher body language that she’s wearing with it that undermines the creation. Full Story

Full disclosure: I love a good cape. If only we could always walk around making entrances and exits with capes, I feel like we might all be more creative. That said, I hate that this red cape, customed by Donatella Versace for Nicki Minaj, may have been inspired by a really sh-tty movie starring Amanda Seyfried. Full Story

During Madonna’s halftime performance at the Super Bowl on Sunday, MIA gave the finger to the camera and some people were offended. Then Madonna announced she’s going on tour. Now she’s having to answer questions about how she felt about MIA’s finger. This is what she told Ryan Seacrest this morning: "I was really surprised. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Academy announced yesterday that Angelina Jolie will present at the Oscars. Great. But...it’s not like she wasn’t already attending with Brad Pitt, Best Actor nominee. We would have seen her anyway. My worry now though is that by confirming the Jolie as a presenter it means Jennifer Aniston WON’T be.  Read Full Intro
