Tom Hiddleston dancing

Following a really cool teaser, there is now a full trailer for Tom Hiddleston’s movie High Rise, a future dystopia mind-f*ck from director Ben Wheatley. It’s more comprehensive look at the film, with the privileged world of the high rise and the weird sh*t happening inside, while still concealing what the hell is actually going on. Full Story

This morning Parade posted their new interview with Leonardo DiCaprio. The Revenant (Struggler) opens in wide release today. Leo talks a lot about his work as an environmental activist and humanitarian and how he feels a moral obligation to do more with his platform, because otherwise greed will win: Parade: You’re famous and rich, you can have all the women you want, do whatever you like, and instead you decide you’re going to concern yourself about the fires killing orangutans in Indonesia. Full Story

BAFTA award nominations were announced today as the Academy nominations deadline nears. (Ballots are due at the end of the day.) Just as she was for the Golden Globes, Alicia Vikander has been nominated twice. She’s in the Best Actress category, proper, for her work in The Danish Girl, and in the Best Supporting Actress category for her work in Ex Machina. Full Story

It’s Golden Globes weekend. Michael B Jordan has not been nominated and Creed was not included in the film categories, its only nomination was for Sylvester Stallone as Best Supporting Actor – which will be one of the best speeches of the night if he wins, I promise you. MBJ is also not on the list of presenters either so there’s really no reason for him to go to the show. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I was just namechecking the Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, Conan ride along yesterday! (Click here for a refresher!) And then they did another one! They just posted it last night – see below.  Read Full Intro

That might be a little wishful thinking from Sarah and me. But… well… you decide. Matt Damon was in New York last night to accept the Best Actor Award from the National Board of Review. Earlier today, I posted about how he credited Sly Stallone for his career – click here Full Story

This is such a great Oscar year! We have a REAL race in ALL categories! Periodically Lainey and I will text one another something along the lines of “this is so exciting!” because for once the Oscars are wide open across the board. The only category that feels close to a done deal is Best Actor because it does feel like everyone is going to just roll over for Leonardo DiCaprio and finally give him an Oscar for freezing his eyelids shut in the Yukon (I spoke to one Academy voter who told me Leo D has his vote because “I’m afraid if he doesn’t get it this time, next time he’ll be hooking his nuts up to a car battery”). Full Story

Please tell me you’ve seen Creed. Creed was my favourite movie of 2015. It was on Sarah’s Top 10 of 2015 – click here if you missed that. And it was a box office success, honouring the Rocky franchise’s legacy and introducing it to a new generation. Full Story

Room co-stars Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay were at the National Board of Review awards last night in New York, both taking home trophies - Best Actress for her and Best Breakthrough Award for him, which he split with Beasts of No Nation's Abraham Attah, who flew in from Ghana. But Brie and Jacob also dominated this morning's headlines: Matt Damon & Sylvester Stallone Upstaged By Nine-Year-Old Jacob Tremblay – Deadline Full Story

In 2014, Kristen Stewart was featured in ELLE. I wrote at the time that the interview was frustrating. Click here for a full refresher, but this was the quote I was referring to: “Never at any point have I sat down and plotted how I should proceed from here on. Full Story

Let’s begin today with our first 2016 sighting of Cary Fukunaga who was in New York last night to receive the National Board of Review’s Freedom of Expression Award for Beasts Of No Nation. Not sure if Cary will be at the Golden Globes this weekend since Beasts was only nominated once for Idris Elba in the Supporting Actor category but the big prize is Oscar and Netflix is hoping that its first feature might be included on the list for Best Picture. Full Story
