Steve Jobs, starring Michael Fassbender, is not doing well at the box office. Variety published a piece this week analysing its underwhelming performance and one of the reasons might be that Michael Fassbender, while excellent in the role, doesn’t have the star power to draw the kind of audience they were hoping for. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

So. Birdman. I mean, yeah. It’s a really good movie. And when it started picking up that momentum, the suspense was gone. Boyhood was done. My only question is, and I don’t have the answer, but I feel like if I was going to Celebrity Studies class today this would be the discussion: Will Birdman endure? Would Boyhood endure? Every year on Oscar Sunday, the etalk team shoots the show’s Monday footage from the red carpet, on the same route all the celebrities take into the auditorium when they arrive.  Read Full Intro

I just want you to imagine the Oscars last night - that long ass show and NPH’s lame ass jokes, and f-cking Adam Levine’s cruelly intolerable voice, and everything that took forever but went nowhere – without John Travolta. Imagine the Oscars without that collar chain around his neck. Full Story

Duana claimed Emma. But it was close for me. Since I almost always go Emma though, because Emma always does Emma, I went in a different direction. My direction, in case you haven’t noticed, is not usually body con. But OMG Scarjo last night… And in person it was even crazier. Full Story

You know, you never want to be boring. Predictable. Safe. And so it becomes a bit of a lame proposition to choose Emma Stone for Best Dressed, because of course she’s going to be Best Dressed. Even her misses are so much more interesting than everyone else’s wins.   But this is no black or cream or red dress. Full Story

Again! She sucked at the Grammys. She sucked at the Globes. She sucked….at the Oscars?!? And it’s not like I don’t love it when G goes rogue at the Oscars. I will always defend the time she went rogue in Alexander McQueen all those years ago. Full Story

What are you doing? What are you thinking?  Jennifer Aniston has a hot body. Let’s just accept that it’s true and always going to be true. We’re going to write think-pieces when she turns 50 (in 4 years!) and 54 and 58 talking about how beautiful she still is. She has the tanning-dyeing-grooming trifecta down to a science. Full Story

Marsala, the colour of the year. Now this is a sharp suit. With the waistcoat too. Proper. It’s Dolce & Gabbana. And so on point for how to show up at your first Oscars with a seat in front of Oprah Winfrey. They gave him a lot of camera time too. Which then gave us his tears in reaction to Common and John Legend’s performance and acceptance speech. Full Story

You have to appreciate the back here. Like I don't want to fight you. I want to convince you. I want you to see the brilliance of this dress. How it gives you what you want in the front, the body con, the contour, while giving me what I want when she turns around. Which is creativity. And design. Full Story

Ok not quite. And it definitely won't be next year for Fifty Shades Of Grey. But she's getting there. The negativity about the movie isn't about the direction. In fact, she's coming out looking pretty good. I've heard more and more actors are interested in working with her. And you heard Dakota Johnson last night right? They don't know what the sequels are going to look like right now because of the EL James drama and the longer this goes on the worse it gets for James because with these rumours and this alleged reputation, who's going to want to work on this now if nothing changes re: her control demands? My Obsession on the other hand, I don't worry about them. Full Story

Or, as they were inexplicably referred to during the call-up, Lonnie Lynn and John Stephens. Maybe your real name has to be on your Oscar?  I mean, what do you say? They had already won the night, and the award, with the performance of Glory which gets more intense and heartrending each time you hear it, instead of less. Full Story
