The Spirit Award nominees were announced today. And Michael B Jordan’s name was on the list for Best Actor alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor, Bruce Dern, Oscar Isaac (!), Matthew McConaughey, and Robert Redford. That’s great company for a young actor who’s had a great, great year, non? There could be more, too. Full Story

They started working on this movie a while ago – July 2012. There were production delays. The studio was concerned. But, finally,  last week, Warner Bros announced they’d decided on a release date: May 15, 2015. 5, 15, 15. That’s still over a year out. Full Story

Meryl Streep has been largely absent from promotion for August: Osage County. She’s been shooting movies, busy, and hustling on carpets and at parties isn’t usually her thing, although once in a while, if Harvey Weinstein nags at her hard enough, she’ll oblige. That said, the Academy has been very kind to Meryl Streep. Full Story

Is your tree up yet? (If you do the tree thing?) Mine is! It’s our first Christmas in our new house so we did a shoot last week for The Social and tricked it out. Except for the lights. Jacek is hanging them next week. Did you hear about that family in Australia that put up half a million Christmas lights to set a world record? Click here Full Story

Kirsten Dunst and Garrett Hedlund have been together for a while. They've been papped holding hands, out for breakfast, side by side with castmates on a red carpet... But how about on a carpet as a "couple"? First time, right? She's in Australia for Anchorman 2. Far as I know he's not in the movie (although there are a million cameos so if you correct me, I wouldn't be surprised). Full Story

Nicholas Hoult was with Jennifer Lawrence leaving The Daily Show yesterday. So there’s your status update. There’s MY status update. It’s still on. Good! I didn’t know if I had access to this photo earlier when I wrote about her and her passport which is why I’ve separated the two posts. Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow and Ewan McGregor are in London today on the set of Mordecai. Johnny Depp is the lead on that film. So she’s back at work with some pretty big stars. Not sure then how true those rumours are that she’s taken a major professional hit from all the sh-tty publicity coming out of the Vanity Fair situation which… is that hit piece ever going to get published? Gwyneth’s character looks super high class socialite – tidy blown-out hair and pearls. Full Story

I’m sorry about yesterday. As Jacek mentioned in Smutty Tingles, I was disorganised. This happens from time to time whenever I try to maximise schedule efficiency. On Wednesday night I was out at two events until late. I slept 3 hours, woke up to blog the next morning, rushed to pack and then left for work at 7:30am to blog some more before preparing for The Social, which airs live at 1pm, and then it was off to the airport at 2:15pm for my flight to New York. Full Story

Sandra Bullock + Las Vegas. Sure. Julia Roberts + Las Vegas. Yeah. Oceans Eleven. Cameron Diaz + Las Vegas. Of course. One actress that doesn’t go with Las Vegas… Winona Ryder. Right? She was at the premiere of Homefront last night with Jason Statham, James Franco, and Kate Bosworth, looking the least comfortable of all of them. Full Story

If this is an act… She totally deserves that Oscar. It’s 20 minutes long, and I know you might not have the time to watch 20 minutes of Jennifer Lawrence, but if you do, you won’t come out the other side feeling sh-tty. That’s not to say she’s, like, Ron Burgundy or anything. Full Story

What Winona Ryder character would you bring back? Which one are you curious about? Who would you want to catch up with? Is it Veronica in Heathers? Or Rina from Lucas? God, I loved Lucas. Charlie Sheen was super hot in Lucas. Whatever happened to Kerri Green? The answer to that question, if you’re Winona Ryder, is Lydia in Beetlejuice. Full Story
