Eddie Redmayne is back on the Oscar circuit this year for playing transgender artist Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl. His performance - which is really a textured portrayal of two different characters (Einar and Lili) who share the same internal pain - is a professional gamechanger for him. Yes, this part, which at one point during the film's 15-year gestation belonged to Nicole Kidman, could catapult Eddie to the Spencer Tracy and Tom Hanks movie star tier of back-to-back Oscar winners. Full Story

Creed opens on Wednesday just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday box office in the United States. The early reviews are solid. Actually, more than solid. Some are saying this is the best installment in the Rocky franchise since the original. Um. EXCUSE ME. Better than Rocky IV? When Rocky punched out Communism? As I’ve written, many, many times already, Rocky IV is my favourite. Full Story

Idris Elba is in New York. Check him out, fine as f-ck, walking around in a red beanie yesterday. Earlier this week, Idris, Abraham Attah, and Cary Fukunaga were promoting Beasts Of No Nation at TimesTalks. Netflix is doing whatever they can to make these nominations happen. What didn’t happen is Idris being named the Sexiest Man Alive. Full Story

Yesterday Lainey wrote about Jesse Eisenberg’s, um, satirical take on film critics in The New Yorker. I recognize the type of critic he’s lampooning, so I find it halfway funny, but I also think this is how he sees all film critics, not just that particular type, and it’s a pretty dumb and immature view on a large aspect of his job. Full Story

Have you watched the Funny Or Die videos of Alexander Skarsgard and Jack McBrayer? It was part of Greenpeace’s Save The Arctic campaign and it’s pretty cute – and informational! Also, it’s the most I’ve been attracted to Alexander in a long, long time. The feeling is so primitive I’m almost ashamed of it. Full Story

Occasionally there will be someone who emails me all huffy about my posts on Mimi, accusing me of exaggerating the Mimi. There is no exaggeration. This is a woman who travels exclusively by Rolls Royce, wheelchair, cherry picker, or the arms of her bodyguard. This is a woman who will downside the physical effort of existing whenever possible. Full Story

Keanu Reeves was shooting John Wick 2 in New York last night. Have you seen John Wick? It’s SO good. It’s funny, and not in the way that Jesse Eisenberg tries to be funny in Clevertown, where the password is an inside joke and inclusivity is an infectious disease that the privileged have vaccinated themselves against. Full Story

Here’s Jake Gyllenhaal shooting Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals yesterday in Manhattan Beach, California and looking pissy in the rain in one scene. We’ve been talking today about the Sexiest Man Alive announcement and whether or not David Beckham was always the first and only choice. Full Story
