Gwen and Blake hit the Vanity Fair party, and as someone who stresses over outfits, I feel like this might be an even more stressful invitation than the Oscars. Full Story

I was still on the balcony last night finishing up some shots when we started hearing the commotion in our earpieces to try to time a standup for Jennifer Lawrence’s arrival. It was, literally, two minutes to show time. Literally. She came with David O Russell, took a few pictures, and then there was a scramble to hustle her all the way down the carpet, around the corner, and up the stairs. Full Story

There have been some FUSSY emails today about botox or fillers or micro derma Sweet Potatoes and why we aren’t writing indictments of everyone suspected to use these things. I think 2003 has come and gone, you know? From what I understand, accusing most Hollywood performers of using these things is like accusing them of using deodorant. Full Story

“Who do you hate more – Justin Timberlake or Leonardo DiCaprio?” – what I just asked Duana a few minutes ago that resulted in a really fun discussion about who, really, is the worst. For her it’s Leo. And the difference is Saturday Night Live. In Duana’s mind, JT’s willingness to at least try it makes him more tolerable than Leo who, as we know, refuses to put himself out there. Full Story

First a brief moment to say that, though her outfit did not fit well (and see earlier where I don’t understand why we commit crimes against breasts), I would always rather see an interesting choice that’s not quite right than a boring column. Full Story

“It came true.” Word spoken by another Best Supporting Actress a couple of years ago. But in Annie Hathaway’s case, it took a LOT longer. For Alicia Vikander? Seems like it was just 12 months, when she told W Magazine that she’d have three films in contention at the Oscars. Full Story

Rooney Mara is a Well-Dressed Oscars Suck

I love, love, love the word ‘suck’. Not like ‘that sucks’, although I do frequently employ that terminology— but like, ‘you’re being a suck’. Remember when we were kids and someone was always being a sucky baby? Now when we talk about it, we use kids’ language and say someone is ‘taking their toys and going home’, but at least there’s a bit of flounce and drama to doing that. Full Story

Rachel McAdams presented last night with Michael B Jordan. MBJ did not walk the carpet. So there are very few shots of him, which is disappointing because, hello, he’s Michael B Jordan. Anyway, after they presented all kinds of people tweeted at me about Gossip Genie’ing the two of them together because, indeed, they did look really cute together. Full Story

Ryan Gosling didn't walk the carpet at the Golden Globes. It was predictable the moment they announced he would be presenting at the Oscars that it would be unlikely he'd walk the carpet. At this point probably not unless he's nominated. But he did look good up there, with Russell Crowe, promoting their movie The Nice Guys. Full Story

I think a few times before I’ve been not so down with Naomi’s red carpet style. I think it’s totally fair that we just don’t necessarily jive, style-wise. I bet she’s really upset about it too.  But in all seriousness, that’s cool. Something isn’t unattractive just because I don’t like it, especially if everyone else does. Full Story
