One of my favourite things to say is that “the Academy doesn’t let riffraff onto its red carpet” which is why I didn’t believe for a minute that Rob Ford would actually be coming to the Oscars. And then Kellan Lutz showed up. Thing is, I’m not sure actually sure Kellan Lutz went inside. Full Story

Pharrell, you beautiful creature, you. You are the embodiment of exactly what it’s supposed to be to be a celebrity. You show up to places, and you are pleased as hell with your accomplished-yet-relaxed-appearing life, and you wear still more compelling-yet-not-serious stuff, and you’re also – almost incidentally – phenomenally successful. Full Story

When’s the last time you remember seeing this much cleavage from Reese Witherspoon? Have you ever seen a side breast from Reese Witherspoon? If I were her, and after 3 children, I’d be showing side breast too. Have we found ourselves at the beginning of a Reese Witherspoon style change? This deep cut Jason Wu is never something I would have predicted we’d ever see on Reese Witherspoon. Full Story

Viola Davis: Best Oscar First Arrival

Thankless. It’s thankless to be first on the carpet. Firstly, you know that your reps put you out there as an early bargaining chip. They need someone recognizable and reliable but not too exciting to arrive early so that nobody turns off the TV. So you’re the anchor, but then on social media, everyone’s like ‘enough already, who cares, what was she thinking wearing that anyway?’ Which is why Davis’ easy-breezy “here I am, what do you need to know” attitude is so useful. Full Story

Penelope Cruz: Oscars Most Disappointing

At every event, there’s someone who wastes her potential. Almost everyone wasted their potential this year but I feel like Penelope Cruz wastes it more often than not. I mean, she’s capable of the spectacular. And what we get is too often pastels and feathers. Or a hybrid toga baby sling. Full Story

It’s not just the accent, of course. It’s that shiny silver hair and the lilt in the voice and the grin. Right now I’m having a bit of a hard time, because even though I know him in my bones to be Irish, it turns out he wasn’t born there, and I’m questioning everything I know. Full Story

One of our producers had a seat in the bleachers this year, taking pictures and Instagram video as part of our social media team. This is the text she sent me around noon: “I’m sitting with the MiniVan Majority.” When Benedict Cumberbatch arrived, no one in her section of the bleachers knew who he was. Full Story

We know he's on a hot streak right now. We know he's really coming into his own creatively. That he's more in demand than ever. His status as one of the chosen people was cemented by the fact that he was asked to appear in Kimmel's Post-Oscar show as a boldface name. That's a big deal. Full Story

According to what the Academy’s volunteers were doing at rehearsal on Saturday, Jennifer Garner, an official presenter, was supposed to walk with Ben Affleck. There were two people with their names clearly marked pretending to be the Afflecks on the red carpet. Garner ended up coming alone, as you know, but Affleck did join her at the Vanity Fair party afterwards. Full Story

I’m surprised too. Because you know how I feel about Elie Saab: same, same, same, boring, same, same, same. But maybe this is where Elie Saab excels: maternity wear? It’s a good colour on her. And I’ve decided I can only tolerate a nude underlay if it’s on a pregnant lady, although I wonder whether or not this is like my version of a fashion handicap and if that’s the case – is it insulting? Anyway, Elsa Pataky was there because her husband Chris Hemsworth presented with Charlize Theron. Full Story

It ain’t easy, OK? It’s not easy to get out there when you’re that big and pregnant and wear something that’s supposed to be an approximation of “glam”. But you do it because you’re Olivia Wilde. But what if you f-ck yourself over? What if you choose the ultimate dress …a little too early? Because come on. Full Story
