Sam Taylor-Wood and Aaron Johnson are the proud parents of a second daughter between them and her fourth overall. That's a LOT of shoes. Her name is Romy Hero. I kinda love it. Almost as much as I love her older sister's name Wylda Rae. So now they're raising 4 girls together. She's 44. And he's still 21. Full Story

Hi Gossips.  Sorry about the crappy load times and half-crashes this morning.  If you're wondering "why now?", unfortunately the changes we're trying to make can only be really put to the test in the 'live' environment with everyone surfing the site.  We've restored the site back to the way it was yesterday so you should be able to surf freely the rest of the day. Full Story

Blake Lively girl drama

I’ll admit up front that I’m not a fan of Blake Lively. So take all this with a grain of salt. I’d love to be able to point and laugh and go, “Haha, everyone hates Blake Lively.”But a development broke last night that had me thinking I might be too hard on Lively, at least some of the time. After all, for all her chicanery—the nekkid cell phone photos, the rumors, the uptradey ways with men—at the end of the day, I don’t dislike her so much I’d jeopardize a film project over it. Full Story

Sarah boldly predicted very early, on December 1, that Gary Oldman would WIN the Best Actor Oscar. Click here for a refresher. Well, first he had to be nominated. And that was far from a sure thing. As late as last week, many experts had left Oldman off the list in their predictions in favour of any combination of Leonardo DiCaprio and/or Michael Fassbender/Shannon. Full Story

Justified Season 3 Episode 2 recapIn last week’s episode I counted Raylan’s shooting of Nix—the black hat—as a kill. However, several readers threw some shade on that and suggested Nix wasn’t actually dead. Since his fate was inconclusive, I’m down-grading his shooting to a half a kill, since at the very least Raylan dealt him a mortal wound. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Academy did a lot of things right this morning. And ... they also chose Rooney Mara over Tilda Swinton. So, you know, there’s that.

This open is being written three minutes after the nominations were announced. Everyone is scrambling to release their analyses now. I cheered for The Tree of Life. I bugged my eyes at Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. And then came the list of snubs. More observations to follow.

But let’s go back to the beginning:

Aloof will be at the Oscars on February 26. Can you stand it?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
