Did Jennifer Aniston stay up late last night, reading and re-reading every email leaked in the Sony hack, especially the parts where Scott Rudin sh-ts on Angelina Jolie? Did it get even better when she woke up this morning – or maybe she didn’t sleep at all – to learn that…holy sh-t, she’s been nominated for a SAG? She did it. Full Story

The Sony hack is the gift that keeps on giving. First it was a laundry list of reasons why making Adam Sandler movies was slowly crushing people’s souls, and now it’s a series of email exchanges between Sony co-chief Amy Pascal, producer Scott Rudin, Aaron Sorkin, and some agents that’s providing a window into the breakdown of a major production deal. Full Story

The first trailer for New New Star Wars came out a couple weeks ago and is crushing records on its way to being the most viewed trailer of all time. Trailers are still the #1 indicator for a movie’s potential audience, and based on the stats for New New Star Wars and Avengers: Age of Ultron, the biggest movie of 2015 is going to be the one in which Mickey Mouse counts all of the money in the world while laughing maniacally Full Story

All that matters is Meryl

Into The Woods New York premiere last night. Meryl Streep was there. This is all that matters. And look at her. I love this outfit. I love it even more than she didn’t pass her handbag off to an assistant and kept it with her on the carpet. The handbag is a proper handbag too. Not an accessory clutch, not a stylish cigarette and lipstick holder but an over-the-shoulder, gets in the way of posing if you’re Victoria Beckham BAG. Full Story

Not engaged. NOT engaged. I just want to make that clear because most headlines you’ve read this morning will probably say that he IS engaged. But he’s NOT engaged. It was a prank. Because this is what happens when Joaquin Phoenix appears on David Letterman. He either pretends he’s retiring and f-cked up and on the verge of a breakdown or he tells a story about falling in love with his yoga instructor. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Boston Society of Film Critics and the LA Film Critics Association both named Boyhood the best film of 2014 yesterday. So Boyhood and director Richard Linklater are well on their way to Oscar nominations. But, as Ritchie wrote in his email to me last night, it remains to be seen whether Boyhood ends up being The Hurt Locker or The Social Network.  Read Full Intro

Jeremy Renner has been in and out of London all year. Avengers: Age of Ultron filmed there over the spring and summer, and following that, he’s been there working on Mission: Impossible 5 – Presumably There’s A Bomb throughout fall and winter. Here he is once again at LAX over the weekend; not sure exactly where he’s coming from, but London is a logical guess. Full Story

After a long, rumor-filled casting process—easily a top-three roughest go round— Marvel has finally announced their Dr. Strange and it is, for real, Benedict Cumberbatch. He’s been rumored for years—I first mentioned it in 2012—but the timing never worked out, and Marvel would go look at other options, coming closest with Joaquin Phoenix a few months ago. Full Story

George Clooney Gladiator

Check out George Clooney in costume on the set of Hail Caesar in LA yesterday. It’s a Coen Brothers movie. It’s about old Hollywood and a guy who did a lot of the dirty work back then to protect the stars when they f-cked up. I wonder if it’s based on a book I read last year called The Fixers: Eddie Mannix, Howard Strickling and the MGM Publicity Machine by E J Fleming because Josh Brolin, who’s apparently the lead in the film, is playing Eddie Mannix. Full Story
