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

Jon Hamm was on the set of Mad Men yesterday. That’s for some of you to enjoy while the rest of us talk about his onscreen daughter Kiernan Shipka who, this weekend, will play Cathy Dollenganger in the Lifetime adaptation of FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC OH MY GOD. As previously mentioned, maybe over-mentioned at this point, Duana and I will be liveblogging the television event of the week on Saturday night instead of watching the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Full Story

Watching the Golden Globes Sunday night, it occurred to me that four out of six Avengers were there. Then I started looking at the tables more closely during cutaways and realized that damn near every film table, and more than a few of the TV tables, had at least one person affiliated with a Marvel project. Full Story

TMZ reports that Justin Bieber egged his neighbour’s house. There’s video with audio. This f-cking punk… I don’t want to talk about why he did it because we all know why. He’s a PUNK. No discussion/debate necessary. Full Story

Check out Leonardo DiCaprio at the UK premiere of The Wolf Of Wall Street last night. Leo’s nominated for a Golden Globe on Sunday so he’ll be back in LA soon if he isn’t already. Leo’s performance is being called the best of his career – an uninhibited portrayal of Jordan Belfort and all the decadence of the financial 80s, robbing people of millions and millions of dollars. Full Story

Scarlett Johansson was on Letterman last night. I love this swirl she wears in her hair once in a while. She can do it and still come off exactly in her time – modern and sophisticated. She talked about living in Paris and talked about the Parisian rudeness thing. And she lives in the “artists” area. Full Story
