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

Tired is one way of looking at it. Another might be hungry. (Dlisted)

This is the SNL version of an intervention (The Superficial)

TRUE. There IS too much irrational eyebrow hate (Amy Grindhouse)

I would, actually, watch Bar Rafaeli play tennis in her underwear (Hollywood Tuna)
 
Jessica Simpson supposedly isn’t due for ANOTHER FOUR WEEKS...? (Pop Sugar)

Oh look. Lea Michele’s taking advice from LeAnn Rimes (Just Jared)

Jennifer Aniston claims she doesn’t have Angelina Jolie’s timing (Cele|bitchy)

Is it just me...or is Mark Wahlberg sounding more and more like the tea party these days? (Socialite Life)

From removing tats to adding tats...that will need to be removed in 10 years (Drunken Stepfather site NSFW)

Brahma, the beer, paid for Jennifer Lopez plus several to be in Rio for Carnival. Plus several nowadays always includes the backup dancer. Because her life doesn’t exist without him until they marry and divorce. If you’re Casper Smart, do you put it on your resume that you ARE, soon to be WERE, JLo’s boyfriend? Like Stacy Keibler and Elisabetta Canalis? I mean, that’s how Canalis ended up on Dancing With The Sh-ts. Full Story

There is a world in which Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are considered adults - parental figures, even if for just one day, to those for whom these two could, mathematically and biologically, be mommy and daddy.Here they are spending the weekend in Malibu with Bieber’s siblings, Jaxon and Jazmyn. (I will not comment on these names or the spelling of them but sometimes I wish blogging could come with facial expressions. Full Story

Lainey messaged me on Saturday about why it seemed like SNL is always better when the host is a returning cast member as opposed to a celebrity. Knee-jerk reaction: because they’re proper comedians and they get it. But it does go a little deeper than that, because there many examples of actors who make excellent hosts—Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin, Christopher Walken and John Goodman come to mind. Full Story

Here’s Taylor Swift at the premiere of The Lorax yesterday in Hollywood. Trying to decide whether or not like I the dress. The neckline gives the illusion of a collar which I think I might be into but I can’t deal with the sheer panelling on the sides.  Of course yes, because Obvious is what Swifty does best, the look is totally Audrey, her character (voice) in the film. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 9We start with Horrible Lori in the overturned car, now beset by zombies, of course. The women of TWD are good for two things: 1) being bitches and 2) getting into trouble from which men must rescue them. At this point, this is the single most unattractive issue of the show. Full Story

Viola Davis was honoured by the NAACP on Friday night in LA. Orange looks amazing on her. And the accessories are beautiful too. But the breasts all out like that and so, um, smushed... I just think maybe it cheapens someone who is never, ever cheap. Much better on Sunday at the Writers Guild Awards, lovely in black and white by RAOUL, with Octavia Spencer, who also seems to be collecting an award every weekend, with The Help director Tate Taylor. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

What is this world where even the Mighty Opes can’t attract viewers? Where the Priestess has to plead with her congregation via Twitter to watch her shows, only to be forced to apologise and remove her message due to Nielsen regulation violation?
