The Academy Awards are fast approaching.  I’m already in LA preparing for our coverage, Duana arrives today, and it’s going to be wall to wall Monday so get ready.  But while the Oscars are about celebrating last year’s top movies, February’s box office has been surprisingly strong as new films are opening every weekend, taking us right into March for The Hunger Games (!!!) and then before long it’ll be box office season. Full Story

And while he's totally hot and it's exciting that he's finally the lead on a carpet, I wish we could also say that he's the lead of a movie that's generating goodwill. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I woke up unsettled this morning and rather unwillingly. Because Prince William was in my dream and, like, REALLY hot. Now you know I’m for Harry, always. So it was weird, seeing Will with all his hair, on his army rescue ship in a grey t-shirt with really nice arms.  Read Full Intro

Lindsay Lohan went to court today and it’s been, oh, 4 months or so since she last f-cked up. The Judge was pleased that she’d completed the community service that was expected of her.Why are we being asked to stand up and applaud the fact that she FOLLOWED ORDERS??? Someone posted a question yesterday during the liveblog about Whitney Houston and Lohan, whether or not she could be next. Full Story
