No Johnny Depp. Unlike the Screen Actors Guild, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association went with Will Smith over Johnny Depp for the Golden Globes. They’re starf-ckers, as you know, the HFPA. But between the stars to f-ck, they chose Will even though they’ve made a joke of themselves in the past by nominating Johnny for The Tourist, remember that? I don’t know if that’s going to carry through to the Oscars, but what’s important to note here is that a formidable challenger has emerged for Leonardo DiCaprio. Full Story

Haven’t seen too much of Oscar Isaac on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens press tour as Daisy Ridley and John Boyega have been front and centre so far and we’ve seen Lupita out there too. But with so many foreign markets, and with the foreign markets so important to the box office, they’ve split up the promotional destinations. Full Story

Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, and JJ Abrams were in Seoul today promoting Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Um, you guys, we are just a week away. A WEEK AWAY. I’m not sure Sarah is going to sleep this weekend. I like that this is the Star Wars A Team going out for the new generation. Full Story

Last night was the premiere of Tina Fey’s and Amy Poehler’s new movie, Sisters, which opens next week against New New Star Wars. The opening weekend projection for Star Wars is $190-$225 million, which means no one has a clue what it’s really going to do. There are only three comparables for this movie, both Avengers and Jurassic World, and in each scenario the box office was unpredictable. Full Story

The first images from Alexander Skarsgard’s probably doomed movie, Tarzan, have been released and holy buckets of hell, they are so cheesy. There are two photos—one shows Margot Robbie as Jane in a dirty dress, with Tarzan creeping on her, and the other is of Tarzan’s abs. Full Story

Rob Lowe received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday. He could have received it 20 years ago and he would still look exactly the same, what is the secret, seriously!?! If you’re a millennial you might not understand what Rob Lowe means to the generation that came before you but for those of you who did grow up in the Brat Pack era, I know you know and you remember – in many ways, Rob Lowe and crew were our introduction to pop culture, teen angst, and class. Full Story

As you know, Alicia’s being positioned for an Oscar nomination for her work in The Danish Girl and she’s shown up on several critics’ lists as one of the best of the year though it remains to be seen how her chances will be affected by the category controversy between supporting and lead. Full Story

Production on Ben Affleck’s Live By Night has moved to Los Angeles, or at least it was there yesterday. Ben and Sienna Miller were both photographed on set in costume yesterday with Sienna going full moll. Since it was announced that Sienna was cast in the film, we’ve all been trying to make this happen, right? Ben and Sienna? Gossip Genie? The tabloids are all over it but to my knowledge, there’s nothing there. Full Story

There has been an unusual amount of focus on the actress categories in the Oscar race this year, because for once there is an overabundance of worthy performances by actresses. Usually, these categories lock up pretty early with a clear frontrunner and the obvious runners-up, and it feels like we kind of scrape around the barrel looking for one or two people to round out the list of top ten female performances in a year. Full Story
