With the HFPA announcing Ricky Gervais as their choice to host the Golden Globes, the first in 15 years, the Academy is now pressing to find a suitable frontperson who can build upon Jackman’s momentum and help avoid a ratings decline.

For months it’s been all about Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson and whether or not the book has become the real. Now less than a month before the release of New Moon, Twilight’s other main star Taylor Lautner is making his own play for romantic headlines, dominating the gossip front this week with not one but two highly publicised outings with his new girlfriend Taylor Swift, not seeming to mind the attention at all, and quite the departure from his last relationship when his team seemed to be rather resistant to the idea of promoting his romantic entanglements. But TSwizzle is very,very popular. And New Moon is Taylor’s movie. And they’re so f-cking cute, why not exploit that while it’s there for the taking? More on this later and also on the controversy surrounding the Brange books.
It’s Thursday. Am blogging all day from Tofino.
Yours in gossip,
PS. Did you watch last night on DirecTV? The FNL season premiere? How’s this for episode 2? I hate Joe McCoy so much and this is good. The show needed a villain to Coach’s hero. Also Riggs is getting a cougar. If you need to know more about this click here.
PPS. Remind me again why you’re not seeing this show? Seasons 1 to 3 are available on DVD. Oh right, it’s because you’re too busy turning Jon & Kate into major superstars. Carry on.
The wrap party was last Saturday (and for those of you who keep asking, yes, contrary to what multiple outlets reported, Kristen Stewart was there though she kept it ultra low key and seemed exhausted) but Twilight Eclipse did not actually wrap until late last night/early Thursday morning. It was a closed set, it was Stewart and Robert Pattinson, and it was “Bella” trying to open her flower to “Edward” and some other corny speak. Full Story
