Will Meryl campaign?

Still not convinced that Meryl Streep will finally win her 3rd Oscar for The Iron Lady. So many people are fanning themselves over the brilliance of her performance as Margaret Thatcher and I’m always happy to hop on a Meryl bandwagon, totally, but ... I just don’t feel it from her this time around. Full Story

Could this be the year after so many years? I dunno. I mean, she’s Meryl Streep. She is extraordinary. But there are many members of the Academy keenly aware that, really, she already has two of them. Still, a lot of it seems to be falling in the right place. Meryl was in Washington this weekend for the Kennedy Centre Honours alongside fellow recipients Neil Diamond, Barbara Cook, Yo-Yo Ma, and Sonny Rollins. Full Story

Award season shaping

The New York Film Critics Circle announced their winners today and the Spirit Awards also released their list of nominees which means the Oscar races are starting to take shape. The NBR will reveal on Thursday, and more and more critics circles will follow in the coming days and weeks, giving a clearer picture of what to expect from the Academy but the purpose of what happened today in New York, as they intended, was to blow out of the gate first. Full Story

Meryl Streep was in London today for the unveiling of the poster for The Iron Lady with the film’s director Phyllida Lloyd. Streep’s portrayal of Margaret Thatcher is expected to earn her yet another Oscar Best Actress nomination. I wasn’t really feeling the teaser trailer that was released in July. As I noted at the time Full Story

GOOP needs powder

Gwyneth Paltrow turned up at the Good Housekeeping Shine On Awards last night in New York to present to her FRIEND Christy Turlington. You know Bono gave Christy away at her wedding? So, yeah, they’re all in that little circle. More on Gwyneth and everyone who loves her later. For now… She needs some powder, non? Maybe it’s residual shine from the evening before, when she supposedly slaved away in the kitchen and cooked dinner for all her celebrity fans Full Story

She is Capable and First

I f-cking love her. Who doesn’t love her? We are fighting if you don’t love her. Meryl Streep has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. The FIRST ACTOR EVER to receive the honour. EVER motherf-ckers. EVER. The only person to be made a member based exclusively on acting achievement. Full Story

Best White: Meryl Streep

Ms Streep killed it in a Balenciaga at the SAGs. Someone must be working with a stylist now? And the stylist delivered again for the Oscars. Meryl Streep in white – perfection. The hair – perfection. Her face – perfection. And virtually untouched. As you know however, when it comes to Meryl, it doesn’t matter what she wears. Full Story

Ladies at the luncheon

Today was the annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon. Notably absent: George Clooney. It’s a non-campaign year for Clooney. Looks like he’s conceding early to Jeff Bridges. But enough of the boys. Let’s talk about our girls. GO Kathryn Bigelow, poised to become the first woman ever to win an Oscar for directing and a movie about war, no less. Full Story

Sandy says the right things

A few years ago, Eddie Murphy pissed on his Oscar chances with a sh-t movie called Norbit. The Norbit billboards directly faced the Kodak, described at the time like a slap in the face to Academy Members who frowned upon his indiscriminate film selections. Sandra Bullock was nominated yesterday for Best Actress. Full Story

SAG Capable: Meryl & Tina

Meryl Streep in Balenciaga – love. Tina Fey in Ferragamo – not my favourite. It’s the shine, it gives lumps when there are no lumps. But who cares? These are CAPABLE women. Thinking women. Women who don’t stress about the aesthetic but who will still matter when the aesthetic is no more. Full Story
