I didn’t hate the silver Zuhair Murad as much as some of you. Having said that...it’s Zuhair Murad. So not-hate will never become like or love. My feelings about JLo from last night though aren’t focused on her attire.How can they be when there’s so much other business to sh-t on. Like the body language she had going on with Cameron Diaz while they were presenting. Full Story

There are stars, and then there are stars, you know? Even though Emma Stone's had a good few years and a REALLY good 2011, she hasn't had that defining role... yet. The one everyone remembers as equal parts incredible acting and indelibly her. I'm sure she's getting scripts, but she's usually a variation on a Sassy Quirky Truth Teller. Full Story

What do you think she was singing? She was so upbeat and excited, you know she had some song in her head. Something upbeat and excited. "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough"? I don't know.  This is the excitement that is appropriate for one's first Oscars. Or any Oscars.  It's a party, you get to be there, it's amazing. Full Story

I'm caught between empathy and irritation with Shailene Woodley. I'm not used to feeling these two things together so maybe if I explore the more benign one, the other will be slightly less annoying.I love vintage dresses. I have several that are, to me and my wardrobe, like, my clothing thesis. Please feel free to roll your eyes, I just did. Full Story

And Sirius Black too. But hopefully it won’t be the last time he’s nominated for an Oscar. Hopefully next time he wins. For now, enjoy Gary on the carpet with his wife Alexandra and being delightful and awesome with Janet McTeer and Glenn Close at Vanity Fair afterwards, holding their shoes.  Full Story

When I ranted about her on Friday, I felt good. And I got a surprising number of dirty-little-secret emails from you all saying that you quietly thought the same thing. That she was too cute, not straightforward enough, or that the shtick of awards season (and those past) had worn thin.But come on. We're movie fans. Full Story

They showed a clip of Meryl Streep being presented her last Oscar before last night by Sylvester Stallone and she was in a gold dress that wasn’t dissimilar to what she wore this time around, as if she’d been advised by my ma the Chinese Squawking Chicken about lucky feng shui colours. Well...it worked. Full Story

Lainey thinks I'm contrary. I am not.  (Lainey: she totally is.) But sometimes if there's an overwhelming opinion that comes at me before I've had a chance to make up my own mind, I will work hard to find validation in the other direction.   Just so there's no chance I'm following the crowd. Full Story

I mean, this is a hot, hot dress I guarantee you there were people there who were like "why didn't I get that dress?  Is Monique Lhuillier mad at me?" Or maybe it was originally on someone of a higher...recognizability, and then it changed hands? I don't know. I'm thrilled for Judy, who remains the hardest working actress your mother doesn't know the name of, because she looks hot and maybe she made some connections last night. Full Story

As you know, I don’t care about who fathered January Jones’s baby. I should. But she is beige. You throw some girl sh-t onto her however, and, well, girl sh-t never sucks.January showed up to Vanity Fair last night. Jason Sudeikis, who was, at one time, rumoured to be the sire, was there too. With his new bonafide Olivia Wilde. Full Story
