Jennifer Garner did indeed accompany Ben Affleck to the BAFTAs. Must leave nothing to chance. Not until February 24. Not until the big show. She’s the Mellie Grant of Hollywood. Which is why while Bradley Cooper and the rest were getting sweaty and messy at the BAFTA parties, the Afflecks kept their game faces on. Full Story

The party is always better than the show, right? Especially if you have a party partner. This…is not Ben Affleck’s life right now. More on that later. For now, here’s Alice Eve getting sweaty with Bradley Cooper. And Bradley Cooper getting pawed by Michael Fassbender. And Fassbender fangirling Jennifer Lawrence. Full Story

BAFTAs. Anne Hathaway won Best Supporting Actress. As I wrote after the SAG Awards -- click here for a refresher -- Annie’s acceptance speeches always start out great. Even before she spoke last night she was great. In a gorgeous Burberry dress and her short hair combed forward, stepping up to receive her trophy but acknowledging Sally Field on the way, and hugging George Clooney, and then talking about how stupid she was for almost not hugging George Clooney… All of that, all of that is great. Full Story

And people are still hating on it. Why? Because it’s old lady or something? Guess what? It’s been old lady for over a year now, all over the place. Florals! Everywhere! If it had been Anne Hathaway, would the reaction have been the same? No, Lainey, but between black and this, there are so many other options. Full Story

Everyone’s all about how Taylor Swift put on an English accent during her Grammy opening performance of We Are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together last night. Really? I’ve watched it 5 times in a row, I cannot hear an accent. What’s wrong with me? The English accent of course, if it actually happened, would have been directed at Harry Styles, which, I mean, obviously, she totally would…and I am TRYING SO HARD to get my ears to confirm this but they won’t. Full Story

You wouldn’t think it would be possible for Carrie Underwood out-worst herself in a dress, right? Oh but she found a way. When that sh-t started during her performance, I texted Duana: No. They are not etch-a-sketching her dress. No. And she was equally horrified. As were so many of you. Full Story

It might actually be impossible to replicate the coolness that is Kelly Clarkson.   When she wins awards, she still geeks out like a newbie – but there’s never any doubt that she knows she deserves it. No false modesty. In fact, as Kelly smoothly transitioned from country to soul last night, I thought  “Does she consciously realize she’s the best all-around singer in the place? Or does she try to ignore that to stay humble?” You guys, she won a televised singing competition. Full Story

Grammys Best Tuxedo: Carey Mulligan

Look, Mumford’s never been my jam. They’re good, I know. But I don’t go to them on repeat on a road trip or anything. If they come on because I’ve hit shuffle, fine. I never rush to the car and make up an excuse to drive somewhere just to listen to them. Is that OK?  You know what I do love about Mumford & Sons though? I love that Marcus Mumford married Carey Mulligan. Full Story

Corners Like It’s On Rails

Girls Season 2 Episode 5 recap I have never gambled. I’ve never been to a casino – I didn’t even try to learn at a charity casino thing I was at a couple of weeks ago. I have literally never purchased a lottery ticket, nor even a scratch card. But I would bet literally thousands of dollars that the premise for this episode of Girls came up because someone in the writer’s room couldn’t stop watching a repeat of Pretty Woman or quoting it in the room or was late for an appointment because it was running on TBS Superstation. Full Story
