Dear Gossips,

Will there come a day when appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel post-Oscar celebrity video becomes more important than attending the actual Oscars? If and when that day comes, will the Jimmy Kimmel post-Oscar celebrity video, like the actual Oscars, end up a giant letdown? Or a debatable one? Why am I making my head hurt with so much meta when I’ve been up all night?As per annual tradition, today’s column is all Oscar.  Read Full Intro

I’m in LA with an entire crew of people working in entertainment news. You could say we are professional celebrity watchers. And none of us can remember seeing Angelina Jolie the way she was last night, especially not the Angelina Jolie post-BBT.  The one who became a humanitarian and philanthropist. Full Story

If you read my site regularly you’ll know this isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned my obsession with capes. Here’s a recent example. Here’s another. So no, this isn’t just about my Gwyneth, actually; it’s also about the Cape first, and a Cape designed by Tom Ford was the closest we came to a game changer last night at the Oscars. Full Story

It pains me to have to say it.  But you know that I'm right.  I looked at that dress, felt disappointed, and then went back to look at McCarthy's award season to see what I wanted instead.  I mean, it's hard to say. All her previous gowns have been a type. A jersey-esque long-sleeve with a v neck in a muted jewel colour. Full Story

Ryan & The Dictator at the Oscars

Ryan Seacrest is so successful because he's the guy who gets it, right? He laughed it off when Simon Cowell mocked him and they became a comic duo. He sees what the world loves in the Kardashians and lovingly exploits their exploits all the way to the bank. He's trusted by all. He laughs in the face of almost everything. Full Story

He’s charming, yes. I am happy he won, totally. I love how much he appreciated his moment, 100%. And I know how much you all are into him. So I will apologise in advance. Sorry. But I am over his eyebrows and the eyecock and the face acting silent movie-ing. Because it is annoying. Do you hate me? I don’t think you should. Full Story

I did something very out of character for me yesterday. Before the show, before all the panic and craziness, I went for a hike. In LA, where people hike. This is not something I undertake all the time. In fact, people who know me and are reading this just spit out whatever beverage they were working on. Full Story

Tom Cruise did not walk the carpet with Katie Holmes. Instead, he went straight inside and presented the final award of the night, a responsibility usually reserved for a big deal name. Thank you Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol. Tom Cruise keeps hanging in there. You do have to admire his tenacity, don’t you? He will never let you push him out. Full Story

I wasn't really worried. Not actually. Maybe just a little bit. Jon Hamm was out a few times this month without Jennifer and I started to get just a little...heightened about the whole thing. As the events grew more and more high-profile, the fact that she was busy working was both completely awesome - they don't have to be together all the time! She doesn't just exist to squire him to things! - and a little angst-making, because there's something about these two that is special to me. Full Story

Oscar Apocalypse

It is surely the apocalypse, because here I sit, in front of pictures of Natalie Portman, and I feel...fine. I have no rants here.  Are you still there? I don't know what to say, almost. I like the dress. Not on everyone, not to every event, but it was beautiful vintage Christian Dior, and the delicate polka dots work for me. Full Story
