As you know, as you’ve seen, George Clooney has been working it HARD the last 6 weeks or so for his Best Actor Oscar. Up to last night, he was winning everywhere. He won so much he’d accept his awards like monologues, prepared speeches about his parents toiling in the grain fields and appreciating his opportunities, not unlike the way a political candidate talks about this and that constituent during a rally in a barn somewhere in the Midwest. Full Story

She was the Best Actress at Critics’ Choice. And she won the SAG Award last night. Suddenly Viola Davis has edged ahead of both Meryl Streep and Michelle Williams for Oscar Best Actress making it tight race to the Kodak. Did you see the Streep’s face? She was delighted. Genuinely delighted. As for Michelle Williams. Full Story

We will fight a lot today about what we liked, what we didn’t like, what we could not deal with. This will probably be one of them. Most of you, I’m sure, probably loathed the L’Wren Scott beaded gown worn by Shailene Woodley. Me I love it so much. SO much. There are certain dresses a fresh-faced 20 year old can pull off without looking dripped in grandmother and socialite. Full Story

While in theory we’re restricting ourselves to what happens at the show, in reality certain truths are self-evident – in this case, that Giuliana (Lainey: Duana keeps calling her Giuliana DePandi which is maybe my favourite thing in life, ever) irritated a wide swath of people far more than usual on the red carpet, and, in keeping with the SAGs being the awards where they really get to let it all hang out, they made less of an attempt to hide it. Full Story

Best SAG Hair for a Bad Dress: Diane Lane

As Kelly Osbourne said last night, and repeated by Duana, pulling off a ponytail with a one shoulder is not an easy accomplishment. Diane Lane did it so beautifully. Always so beautiful. I just really... don’t care for this dress.It’s OK, I guess. And, well, not much more. It’s not imaginative. It’s not memorable. Full Story

No, I’m not joking.   Ellie Kemper was a double-nominee last night, as part of both the casts of The Office and Bridesmaids. And she was mistaken for someone else SEVERAL times. Once, on the carpet during a cutaway, after she’d already been interviewed by Ross (ugh…Ross), she was supered as “Grizz Chapman, 30 Rock”. Full Story

Best Beneficiary of Being in a George Clooney movie: Judy Greer at the SAG Awards

You know Judy Greer. We all know Judy Greer. We’ve all seen a Judy Greer movie. I promise you, we’ve all probably seen at least two Judy Greer movies. Judy Greer is the only thing I liked about The Descendants, a film that continues to confuse me for all the love it’s received from the critics’ boards and associations, with a wickedly embarrassing voiceover and the kind of vision and directing you’d expect from a 25 year old hipster filmmaker right out of film school. Full Story

How amazingly desperately pouty was Michael Pitt last night? I’d rather be strumming my guitar smoking cigarettes in a dive hole jazz bar, is this what you’re trying to tell me? Before or after you spend your money from modelling for Prada?Yes, Michael Pitt is the face of the new Prada men’s campaign Full Story

Best thing that happened at the SAGs? Angie and Tilda are BFF! More on that later. God I miss Joan Rivers on the red carpet. Joan Rivers wouldn’t ask Meryl Streep, “What kind of actress are you?”  And if she did, she’d specify that in terms of nudity and trailer size. I mean, I work in television, I get it that there has to be a certain amount of mega dick-sucking that happens at these events, but this. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Katherine Heigl’s One For The Money opens today. It was not screened for critics in advance. So any critics who will review it have to go on their own and piss away two hours. Which is what Ramin Setoodeh did for Newsweek. He writes that One For The Money is worse than Gigli.  Read Full Intro
