The BAFTAs are happening on Sunday. WHY DOES IT ALWAYS HAVE TO BE THE SAME DAY AS THE GRAMMYS?!?! And it’s Chinese New Year on Sunday. So Monday will be busy here. But I might be a bit slow getting going because of the celebrations. Anyway, Ben Affleck’s Argo has been nominated for the BAFTA Best Film and Best Director. Full Story

The Academy announced yesterday that Channing Tatum (along with Charlize Theron, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Daniel Radcliffe) will participate in the Oscar telecast on February 24. It will be his first time there. And it’s not surprising. No one had a bigger year than Channing Tatum. Of course they’d want to involve him. Full Story

Here’s Jessica Chastain showing up at work on Broadway last night after being in LA for the Oscar Nominees Luncheon earlier in the week. She’s spent a couple of months now flying back and forth and back and forth. And this weekend it’ll be the same. As soon as she’s done with her play, she’ll be off to London for the BAFTAs, then back to the US for Oscar fittings, and then of course it’ll be the Oscars. Full Story

The Academy sent out a press release this morning announcing that the cast of The Avengers—RDJ, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans and Samuel L. Jackson—will be presenting at the Oscars. There are a couple noticeable absences, though. Scarlett Johansson, who’s currently on Broadway so it’s conceivable she couldn’t take the time off, but where in the world is Chris Hemsworth? He has his own franchise and Thor 2 is opening later this year. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Emmanuelle Riva and Daniel Day-Lewis did not show at the Academy’s Nominees Luncheon yesterday. Almost everyone else however was there, either to jockey for position or to get as much out of the experience as possible, because they may never be back.  Read Full Intro

All but Riva

Emmanuelle Riva did not attend the Nominees Luncheon yesterday in Beverly Hills. That has something to do, perhaps, with the BAFTAs being on Sunday and it might be too much at her age to go back and forth from LA to London and then back to LA again in a week or so for the Oscars. Or maybe it’s because she’s not playing. Full Story

Of course. It’s an honour just to be nominated. If you were nominated, come on, don’t lie, you’d want to look your best, wouldn’t you? You’d want to show yourself through the season at your fittest, with unblemished skin, and really good hair, non? Bradley Cooper normally has amazing hair. Full Story

It was always a long-shot, my prediction that Hugh Jackman will win Best Actor for Jean Valjean in Les Miserables. If it were any other year, a non-DDL year, his chances would be a lot better. But, well, you know Daniel Day-Lewis. Still... I’m staying with my bet. Full Story

And the Directors Guild has just joined the Actors Guild and the Producers Guild and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and the Broadcast Film Critics Association in naming Ben Affleck and Argo the best of the year. Full Story
