They’re shooting a movie together… Don’t look at me. You think I understand? It’s called Lila & Eve. They’re mothers. Their kids are killed in a driveby. The authorities are impotent, unwilling, not helpful. So it’s Mom Vigilantes. You know, I think maybe I changed my mind. Full Story

From gawky schoolboy to A-lister's love - but how long can About A Boy star Nicholas Hoult hold on to Hollywood's hottest property, Jennifer Lawrence? The f-cking Daily Mail, of course. Nicholas Hoult was at Sundance for Young Ones, directed by Jake Paltrow. Full Story

George Clooney is in Valencia, Spain shooting Tomorrowland. It seems like he’s been working on this film forever. I think they started in Vancouver in September, maybe even August, and during that time he was cutting The Monuments Men which is probably why Matt Damon called Gravity the Sandra Bullock movie the other day during promotion for The Monuments Men. Full Story

Celebrities aren’t the only ones who bury news stories late on holiday weekends. Warner Brothers did it late Friday with a piece of the news that, at any other point in the news cycle, would have dominated everything. As it is, tucking away their announcement after business on the Friday before the long MLK holiday weekend (in the US, anyway) spared WB some nerd angst over the weekend. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch was enjoying himself at the SAG Awards. I mean that sincerely, no side-eye. Every time I caught a glimpse of him in the audience, he was smiling and laughing, sitting at the 12 Years a Slave table but making time for his August: Osage County co-stars, too. It had to feel nice, being a double nominee as part of the 12 Years and Osage County ensembles—it’s a positive footnote to the year that didn’t go quite as originally planned Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Lupita! So gracious, so charming, so popular – easily the most popular last night at the Critics’ Choice Awards as everyone wanted a moment with her…because Lupita Nyong’o is definitely having a moment right now.  Read Full Intro

Portrait session for The Monuments Men yesterday. George Clooney put a political message on under a leather jacket. But he’s been overshadowed. By Cate Blanchett? No. Not even Cate Blanchett. Bill Murray. Please enjoy his pink pants. It’s award season and George Clooney’s in a film – Gravity – that is in contention for Best Picture. Full Story

So we all know Cousin Matthew died, but did you know he’s also on a diet? Dan Stevens has been making the rounds to promote his new movie, Summer in February, and his beautiful baby moon face that we all fell in love with is nowhere to be seen. And that’s not the only thing he left behind at Downton. Full Story

It’s been 10 years since Jude Law played Alfie. God he was SO f-cking hot in Alfie, do you remember? Sienna Miller was also ridiculously hot in Alfie. They were ridiculously hot together. It’s been a long time since I’ve been attracted to Jude Law. And then I saw these pictures of him leaving the Noel Coward Theatre in London last night after performing in Henry V and …there was a twinge. Full Story

I was looking over my Sundance 2013 preview for formatting notes when I saw this: Matthew McConaughey will get nominated for an Oscar. It will happen. I missed it this year, so I’m going to go ahead and call it for 2014—Matthew McConaughey will get nominated for an Oscar. Full Story

Look, if it were up to me, it would be Chiwetel Ejiofor for Best Actor. But as I said the other day, it really is looking like it’s going to be a battle between Leonardo DiCaprio and Matthew McConaughey. Which, from a campaign observational standpoint, I have to admit, might be a lot of fun. Full Story
