A couple months ago I wrote about some developments with Thor: Ragnarok, including that the big-screen Marvel villainess will debut in that movie. This is what I said back then: …empowered by their recent A-list success in casting Doctor Strange, Marvel will pursue a big name actress for Mystery Villainess—like Cate Blanchett big. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I’m buzzy today. It’s a combination of Christmas and award season excitement. The SAG nominations came down yesterday. The Golden Globe nominations just happened this morning. The Globes are just a month away.  Read Full Intro

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were photographed at The Grove yesterday. Apparently they took their son, Silas, to meet Santa for the first time. As we wind down the year, it was supposed to be a quiet one for Justin as he took time to enjoy being a dad. Full Story

Every kid in Canada growing up in my era had to read that book by W.O. Mitchell. Is it still the same? Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated for a Best Actor Drama Golden Globe today for his gruelling, freezing, This Is Sparta! performance in The Revenant. And I know you know but, just for fun, let’s recap all of his movie star hardships, from having to slumber among animal guts to eating raw animal to trudging through the snow and… the bear. Full Story

Am thinking this is for the role? Am HOPING this is for the role? This is Ben Affleck on the set of Live By Night the other day showing off his back. Tattoos are a thing for a lot of people. There’s an entire New Adult romance section of books featuring men with tattoos and the other women and men who f-ck and love them. Full Story

Yesterday we saw the first images from the Alexander Skarsgard Tarzan movie, officially titled The Legend of Tarzan, and today we have a trailer. It’s not disastrously bad, but man, I don’t understand anything about this movie. This trailer makes it look weirdly dark and grim—the Batmanning of Tarzan—until the end when there is a decent sight gag with a teacup. Full Story

This is what I mean when I say I’m torn. Because I love Idris. But this won’t be Idris’s only opportunity, only award season. For Sylvester Stallone as Rocky, well, it’s not going to happen again. And so far it’s my favourite story of award season, as you know, because I can’t shut up about it. Full Story

I love it when I need to write about someone and they oblige me with new photos. Idris Elba was nominated for two Golden Globe awards this morning. And here he is looking FINE in blue leather today in London. So this post satisfies both the people who care about the Globes and the ones who don’t give a sh-t about awards and just want to get off. Full Story

Carol led the way with 5 Golden Globe nominations this morning. The Big Short, The Revenant, and Steve Jobs are in with 4. The Martian has 3. And Spotlight has 3. But no actors from Spotlight were singled out. The SAGs only nominated Rachel McAdams from that cast yesterday. Is that a concern for the film that was considered the frontrunner earlier this week? Or maybe, if they position it right, that will actually help the film? That no one person is more important than the story. Full Story

We have a challenger

No Johnny Depp. Unlike the Screen Actors Guild, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association went with Will Smith over Johnny Depp for the Golden Globes. They’re starf-ckers, as you know, the HFPA. But between the stars to f-ck, they chose Will even though they’ve made a joke of themselves in the past by nominating Johnny for The Tourist, remember that? I don’t know if that’s going to carry through to the Oscars, but what’s important to note here is that a formidable challenger has emerged for Leonardo DiCaprio. Full Story
