In our ongoing feature of Oscar memories, Jennifer Lopez is the next subject. And I’ve just realised in preparing this post and the photos for it how many f-cking times she’s been. 9 times!This year it’ll be 10!Do you think, maybe, that’s too much, Academy? I know I don’t have to tell you what I consider to be the best JLo appearance at the Oscars. Full Story

Smash Season 1 Episode 3 recapThe Monday night-Tuesday morning corridor is full of recaps for me and this morning the boy asked which shows I was working on.  When I explained House of Lies and Smash air on the same night, he went  "oh, so a show about the world's most cynical, terrible people. Full Story

It’s the last liveblog before the Oscars on Sunday. So we’ll open with some Oscar talk and then get into other topics. Here’s a loose agenda: -Oscar races and ratings: will Jean prevail over George, Viola over Meryl, The Artist over The Help? What are your upset calls? Will anyone be watching? Who will be best dressed/worst dressed? Will JLo bring the Backup? -brief thoughts on Whitney because I know from your emails you have some to share-The Vow vs This Means War because if it’s the classic sh-t vs diarrhoea, War is the sh-t and Vow is the runs. Full Story

Mariah Carey was at Whitney Houston’s “homegoing” service on Saturday. And did not angle for camera time. Who is this person? After a very respectful low key weekend, Mimi was back in her own spotlight this morning in her role as Jenny Craig ambassador to unveil her new heart health PSA. When asked about Whitney on Good Morning America, Mimi once again did not make herself the star of the conversation. Full Story

House of Lies Season 1 Episode 7 recapSo this is TV. While movies historically have been used to tell stories about the fantastic, incredible people who existed only in our wishes or trumped-up, watercoloured memories, television was always supposed to show people watching who they were. Who they are. Full Story

TERRIBLE Lin pun, right?I tried for a few minutes and it just wasn’t happening. Sorry. But look how cute Beyonce and Jay-Z were last night, courtside at the Knicks game, seeing Jeremy Lin in person for the first time. NY lost last night but #17 was the top scorer with 21 pts, 7 rebounds, 9 assists, 4 steals, 3 turnovers, and, well, perhaps even more attention that the parents of the Blue Ivy Carter, if that’s actually possible. Full Story

Lower tier actress - you know her name - is desperate for a big(ger) break. When she heard The Director was working on a new blockbuster, she begged and begged for a meeting. And he repeatedly kept dicking her around, cancelling at the last minute, making her wait for a couple of hours before sending the assistant  out to tell her he wasn’t showing. Full Story

Tropfest happened in Australia this past weekend. It’s the biggest short film festival in the world. On the judges panel this year: three Oscar winners - Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, and Geoffrey Rush - and Toni Collette, Oscar nominee and Emmy and Golden Globe Awards recipient. Total amateurs, right? God I love it so much that Cate and Geoffrey especially give back so often and so happily to their local arts community. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It’s a good problem to have every year: choosing the bag to give away for the Annual Red Carpet contest sponsored in 2012 by SCENE. Do I go with something super trendy that won’t matter in 6 months? Most of the time, I pick a classic.  Read Full Intro
