Michelle Williams was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar last year in Blue Valentine. They’ve been buzzing about it for weeks but now that the first trailer for My Week With Marilyn has been released, the hype has become much louder. Could she go two for two? Michelle, of course, plays Marilyn Monroe. Full Story

Sandra Bullock and Usain Bolt were both at Mr Chow last night for dinner. Some people tried to suggest that it was a date. Apparently all they did was pose for a photo together inside. Hilarious, right? Let us not speak of what happened last month at the Worlds. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen at the Olympics. Full Story

You don’t have to be tall to work a pair of pants well. Jake Gyllenhaal is tall and he finds pants problematic rather often. Jeremy Renner is not tall and, well, here leaving the set of The Bourne Legacy yesterday in New York, Jeremy demonstrates that he can do pants super sexy. Also I love French bulldogs. Full Story

Kristen Stewart’s version is supposed to be. Snow White & the Huntsman imagines Snow White as a warrior princess, throwing down against the evil queen. So here she is, shooting in England today on the beach, leading her army into battle. Stewart looks comfortable, to me at least, on a horse, non? She’s apparently been training for months. Full Story

I kept meaning to write about this during TIFF but it always ended up getting buried. So you know Salma Hayek’s husband Francois-Henri Pinault fathered a baby with Linda Evangelista and now she’s suing him for child support because she says he gives his other baby, with Salma, everything and her kid gets . Full Story

That’s the rating for Taylor Lautner’s Abduction on Rotten Tomatoes. 3%!I don’t think I’ve ever seen it go lower than 5. I mean, I’m sure there are films who’ve scored less, and I’m sure you’ll know-it-all all over my inbox to prove it, but 3%, that’s quite an achievement. Full Story

Robert Downey Jr and Rachel McAdams were photographed today working on Sherlock Holmes in London. The movie is due for a holiday release and Guy Ritchie has already been cutting it for months. Rachel will only be making a cameo in the film. Noomi Rapace is officially the female lead. And... um... good. Full Story

How is it already the end of September? David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is due out in just three months. We’ll start to see the buzz build for it soon especially now that a second trailer has been released. And it’s long! Almost 4 minutes. Right off the top, the score for this film . Full Story

Vera the director

Love Vera Farmiga. Sometimes she dresses like a crazy person though. Remember this? Vera did much better on the cover of the new issue of NUVO Magazine. Beautiful. My favourite story about Vera is how honest she is about Up In The Air, specifically that she’d just had a baby before starting work on it and the studio called over - God studio executives are assholes - and wanted her to lose more weight. Full Story

Knocked Up was a big hit for Katherine Heigl. But that wasn’t her movie. And, as she subsequently noted, she, um, wasn’t proud of that movie anyway. I wonder if she’s proud of any of her movies...? Like, is she proud of Killers??? It was 27 Dresses that really established Katherine Heigl as a “movie star” . Full Story

This must just be a bad trailer

It happens. A bad first trailer followed by an awesome second one and the film ends up being really, really good. Because on paper, Clint Eastwood + Leonardo DiCaprio + Judi Dench and a Dustin Lance Black screenplay, it’s an Oscar automatic, right? J Edgar was being called an Oscar automatic from the very beginning. Full Story
