The Genie Awards, Canada’s film honours, took place in Toronto last night. Joshua Jackson brought Diane Kruger. And she watched him win Best Actor for his work in One Week. Diane was super cute about it too, they were hugging and kissing all night, very much together, in love and in dress. Matching. Full Story

I say Hell-o. Glee! The title of the first episode of the new spring season is called Hell-O. I watched it last night. And they make up for a 4 month break by packing in a LOT of content. Stop reading now if you haven’t been catching up on all the Glee articles from Ausiello, from E!, from everyone and everywhere releasing information about the new installment. Full Story

Little Bieber’s big cover

I’m not sure anyone over the age of 16 can identify a Justin Bieber song. I live in Canada, and he’s Canadian, and we are saturated with Bieber, and even I can’t tell you what it sounds like. But these days, nothing matters unless it matters to the under 16 anyway. So Justin Bieber is everywhere. Full Story

In Toronto, I work out of the CTV Building which is also the MuchMusic Building. MuchMusic is a big deal for teens. And there are often young girls lined up around the block waiting for an appearance. One day, it was over a year ago, Michelle and I arrived early in the morning and they had camped out, barely able to contain their squeals. Full Story

Well this means it’ll last

Declarations of love forever in the form of drunken tats...is there any other way to get back together? Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley were supposed to get divorced. Both have been linked to others. She and one of those rich Davis brothers and Brody Jenner, he with this broad Full Story

Looking older?

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is 29. Doesn’t look it normally, does he? Closer to 20 than 30, non? That’s the challenge for baby faced actors. JGL is currently in Vancouver working on Seth Rogen’s new film, formerly titled I’m With Cancer. Can we give it a proper name yet? The Untitled Seth Rogen Cancer Project sounds horrible. Full Story

This boy is cute

Isn’t he? Look at that skin. And his sheepish little expression. Cory Monteith is a full blown adult playing high school and that got tired real quick with Taylor Kitsch and Scott Porter (hello Friday Night Lights!) but on Cory, I’m buying and this is not a negative. Cory’s cute makes up for his lack of pants steeze. Full Story

Michael Buble

Background: I have been very, VERY critical of Michael Buble especially while he was dating Emily Blunt who is, as many of you know, in my estimation, as close to perfect as it gets in Hollywood... with the exception of Marion Cotillard. But this is another discussion. There were allegations of infidelity, of douchey behaviour, and I wrote about it extensively. Full Story

Young Artists for Haiti

Exactly 2 months ago, on January 12th, 2010, an earthquake devastated the Haitian landscape… but not the Haitian spirit. K’Naan’s Wavin’ Flag is the anthem for Young Artists for Haiti, recorded by some of the biggest names in Canadian music in support of earthquake relief efforts. Full Story

JGL & Seth Rogen

Here he is – Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Vancouver yesterday with Seth Rogen on the set of the cancer movie that was previously titled I’m With Cancer but now seems to have no name. As you now know, JGL stepped in to replace James McAvoy in the lead role about a 25 year old comedy writer diagnosed with cancer, the true life story of Seth’s friend Will Reiser. Full Story
