Last week, on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter, Nicole Kidman was all like, “I am the indie spirit, and that’s where my art is, not with the big box office movies”. So here she is, at Sundance this weekend, being “indie”. Full Story

Daniel Day-Lewis was in Madrid yesterday promoting Lincoln in a peacoat and scarf. Judging from your email and tweets, you really enjoyed this, as did I. Bradley Cooper was also in Madrid yesterday, also in a scarf. As you know, Coop has been nominated alongside DDL for a Best Actor Oscar for his performance in Silver Linings Playbook. Full Story

A great week is only getting better, starting the second day in a row with Nicholas Hoult, currently in the #2 position on my Five List. Here he is in a well tailored suit at the premiere of Warm Bodies in Rome. My cousin Cat wrote to me yesterday, “I can’t believe About A Boy is so hot! I loved him in that movie!” I’m telling you, in person it’s even better. Full Story

Oh relax, I’ll keep it short(ish). Ain’t Them Bodies Saints Casey Affleck has appeared in only one movie since the Joaquin Phoenix/I’m Still Here debacle in 2010, and that was the loathsome Tower Heist in 2011. But he’s back now (…good?), starring alongside Rooney Mara and Ben Foster (!!!) in a 1970s-set drama about petty criminals. Full Story

Promotion for Gangster Squad on the talk show circuit is being shouldered, primarily, by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. I mean, it’s not like they’re going to send Sean Penn out there. And, well, the young ones are just so pretty and fun and polished. Look at Ryan Gosling working late night like a f-cking pro on both Jimmy Kimmel and Conan. Full Story

Finnick...

The new cover of Entertainment Weekly -- Jennifer Lawrence and Sam Claflin as Katniss and Finnick in Catching Fire with a still from the movie on the inside. How you doing? You OK with that? The shot from the film is better, I guess, but whatever it is that’s happening on the front page really isn’t working for me. Full Story

Been in LA since Friday to cover 4 junkets, including Gangster Squad and the LA premiere last night. Ryan Gosling wore the sh-t out of his brown suit. And his shoes... I looked down at them when he was being interviewed by the outlet just ahead of me on the carpet and noticed they were...what do you call it when they've been hole-punched, like a strainer? Or a "colander" as I've recently learned. Full Story

At this point, who HASN’T been mentioned for Christian Grey? Wait, I know... Anthony Mackie. Anthony Mackie should be Christian Grey. Anyway, yesterday I wrote about Eddie Redmayne and how, after Les Miserables, he’s now a teen heartthrob. And then many of you shouted back that he appeals to more than just teens and that some people think he should/could be Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey which. Full Story

Palm Springs Film Festival on Saturday night -- the first of several major events in the next 10 days: Oscar nominations are coming Thursday morning followed by the Critics’ Choice Awards that night, and then, of course, the Golden Globes on Sunday. As the later events will probably get a lot more play, Naomi made an understated selection to ease into the season. Full Story
