I couldn’t come up with it in 140 words or less on Twitter in time but my point is -- did you have a reaction to the fact that Michael Douglas and Jane Fonda make more sense than Michael Douglas and Catherine-Zeta Jones…? Many of you thought it was damage control that they showed up together just as rumours spread last week that they’re in trouble. Full Story

We have a very specific way of covering major award shows here at LaineyGossip; it takes us longer but it’s only because we want to talk about everything like you’re talking about everything when you were watching, instead of just throwing up the pictures right away. Also, we love to argue about it. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence is considered one of the favourites for Best Actress on Sunday (even though more and more momentum seems to be shifting to Emmanuelle Riva). Taking advantage of her profile going into the weekend, promotional images from two separate campaigns not related to Silver Linings Playbook have been released. Full Story

The Academy announced today that Jack Nicholson and Dustin Hoffman will present at the Oscars on Sunday. Some call Nicholson the unofficial mascot of the Oscars. And Hoffman, well, you don’t need me to explain why he’s a legend. Needless to say, then, given the gravitas of both actors, we should probably see them towards the end of the show. Full Story

Oh my God, with this, Ethan Hawke. Are you serious? Elaine loves to taunt Michelle and me about our teenage love for him. I have to admit, it feels embarrassing in retrospect. Not because he wasn’t cute then, or appealing to our young selves, but because there’s that sanctimonious thing that is so exhausting – that guy who first burst your bubble about sweatshops when you thought your clothes were cute, or who pointed out how everyone gets lonelier as they get older and life’s a bitch and your children leave you and it’s pointless. Full Story

Who Are You Wearing…On Your Dick?

Who are you wearing? The age old red carpet question has taken on special new meaning, now that it’s been revealed this year’s Oscar gift bags include a pack of condoms, specifically, Naked Brand condoms. They’re marketed as a luxury rubber, but at only $20 a box, this is extravagance anyone can afford. Full Story

On etalk we always joke that "red carpet run-ins" is one of our go-to stories leading up to major events. As Ben Mulroney just told me as we're shooting our links right now under the Oscar tent, it never happens. They never "run-in". They always avoid. There are a few avoid situations this year, including Renee Zellweger and Bradley Cooper. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Hollywood Reporter posted a fascinating discussion with an Academy voter yesterday that went down as he was filling out his Oscar ballot. He completed it in the presence of THR’s Scott Feinberg, with commentary and rationale -- compelling insight into how Oscar happens and, once again, how it’s all a popularity contest.  Read Full Intro

Eddie Redmayne arrived in LA yesterday with ... a lot of luggage. Given that he’s been the best dressed man so far during award season, this is understandable. He needs his gear. Let the man have his gear. Last time we heard from Eddie Redmayne he was throwing up at the BAFTAs. Happily he’s made a full recovery. Full Story

As mentioned earlier, Anne Hathaway will perform as part of the Les Miserables ensemble at the Oscars on Sunday. Annie sings again at the Oscars! She sang two years ago when she co-hosted with James Franco. She sang four years ago when Hugh Jackman hosted and pulled her up on stage. I always loved it when she talked-sang the line “Frank Langella was sitting next to me”. Full Story

The Academy has just announced that Jennifer Aniston will present at the Oscars. Pretty strong presenter list again this year: in addition to the Avengers and several nominees (including Ben Affleck, Jessica Chastain, and Jennifer Lawrence), Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, and Sandra Bullock are also expected. Full Story
