I don’t understand why Birdman keeps getting categorized as a comedy. It’s weird and has its funny moments, but it’s not a comedy. And yet at the Golden Globes and the Critics’ Choice Awards it was classified as a comedy. I’m fine with splitting drama and comedy categories for award purposes, but if that’s going to happen then can you please nominate actual comedies and not dramas that have some humorous dialogue? It defeats the purpose of the split categories if all you’re doing is ignoring actual comedies in order to sneak in more dramatic nominees. Full Story

Interrupting the Critics’ Choice posts to catch up with Johnny Depp, who finally decided to start promoting Mortdecai last night on Jimmy Kimmel. He was not alone. Amber Heard accompanied him to the studio so that he can prove to you that his much younger fiancé still wants him. For now. Full Story

Jennifer Lopez and her The Boy Next Door co-star Ryan Guzman were on Ryan Seacrest this morning for promotion. Guzman, of course, is also rumoured to be her real life …situation right now. Of course there was no situation when they were shooting the film, shooting scenes with him saying that “I like your mom’s cookies”, and pressing her up against a wall and going down her stomach with his tongue. Full Story

On the day that the 2015 Oscar nominees are announced, let’s start talking about (potential) 2016 Oscar nominees. Last night Ron Howard announced that his whaling disaster movie, In the Heart of the Sea, is moving from its March 13 release date to December 11, 2015. That’s a VERY confident move from distributor Warner Brothers, especially since Star Wars Episode VII opens the following week, which is going to cut into their potential profits—movies do most their damage in the first two weeks of theatrical release—so WB must feel good about their chances for a big opening weekend. Full Story

Losing my f-cking mind over Kristen Stewart’s white pants today. OBSESSED. Look at the material. It’s probably heaven on the skin. And they’re cuffed! High end, steezy pyjama bottoms… YES, YES, YES. Also like the way her hair is styled into a layered funky little bob. Full Story

In September, right after his wedding, Brad Pitt showed up in New York to shoot with Martin Scorsese. Click here to revisit those pictures. It was the orange hat, remember? At the time it was revealed that Scorsese was directing Pitt, Robert De Niro, and Leonardo DiCaprio and while they’re calling it a “short film”, really, as I said at the time, it’s commercial for a new casino opening up in Macau. Full Story

It’s almost as if they were like, “Hey, we gave you 12 Years A Slave in 2014. So wait another 10 years before we reward you again”. I mean, I’m happy for Laura Dern, and Emma Stone, and Mark Ruffalo. But David Oyelowo belongs there. And, more importantly, Ava DuVernay belongs there. Full Story

For Angelina Jolie and Unbroken, the signs were there that it wasn’t happening. It’s been a month of signs. Unbroken did however receive 3 nominations in technical categories. So… it’s something. For Jennifer Aniston… After two months of aggressive – and impressive! – campaigning. Full Story

This Celine sweater dress on Sienna Miller…I can’t. I can’t control my WANT. I would wear it every single day. I would never wear it and get into a water fight, are you f-cked? Then again, it’s because for me, the sweater dress would be a major acquisition. For a celebrity, it’s one of many. Full Story
