BAFTA nominations were announced today and the major snub is a major surprise:
Sally Hawkins was totally shut out. And she’s British! They replaced her with the Jolie in the Best Actress category, along with 2 nods for Kate Winslet in both The Reader and Revolutionary Road, and rounded o the category out with Kristin Scott Thomas in I’ve Loved You So Long which, if you haven’t seen yet, will cut you off at the knees. She is magnificent. And as such, Anne Hathaway wasn’t invited to the party either.
Instead, BAFTA wanted the Brange. Like Kate Winslet, Brad Pitt also received 2 nominations and it will be Slumdog vs Benjamin Button with each film earning 11.
Well…they did put the name of their major sponsor in the official TITLE of the event. It’s actually called the Orange British Academy Film Awards. The equivalent in North America would like saying the Verizon Academy Awards. Or the Verizon Oscars.
So Pitt Porn is going to England. February 8th hosted by Jonathan Ross.
Thursday – new posts all day.
Yours in gossip,
Ben Affleck is on preschool pick up duty. Oh Violet. This child. I love her and I don’t even know her... which totally sounds f-cked up and creepy but that pretty much defines celebrity child obsession these days anyway. The Chosen One Shiloh Jolie-Pitt has more magazine covers than the entire cast of Friday Night Lights! As for adoring Violet… it’s just because she’s so happy. Full Story
This video is from the Globes red carpet. So they blew off Seacrest but took a question from Tyson Beckford. Heh. The question is whatever, the answer is … well… you know I love them. A short, adorable glimpse… the Jolie should show this side of herself more often. Am all over it when she’s sassy! Sassy but not defensive. Full Story
Last week’s episode of 30 Rock nearly killed me. Why aren’t more people watching this show? Oh right, because it’s up against the ass and balls, of the nasty variety, that has become Grey’s Anatomy. Still…Tina has a loyal following. And she’s a winner. She wins everything. Full Story

Thank you for your emails about Marcus. He gave us a scare and what topped it off for us was that he was not interested in food. It was a sign of the apocalypse. This is what happens when you eat sh-t. Relief though - he’s turned a corner after getting a shot in the ass. And we knew it was all good when he barked in the FedEx man’s face yesterday because the lovely fellow understandably did not want to touch his stanky toy goose for an impromptu game of chase.

At something really horrible if the person you’re laughing at put themselves in the situation to begin with? I have been laughing at this for 10 minutes straight. It’s a terrible thing and I’m surprised a lightning bolt hasn’t hit our house yet but there’s still time. Thing is though, he’s on reality tv. Full Story
