Dear Gossips,

Missing Milk?

Many of you emailed to ask about James Franco at the Globes on Sunday. He was nominated in Colin Farrell’s category but wasn’t there. No one from Milk was there. And Milk did not receive a nomination for Best Picture. Collective boycott? Well it’s not like Sean Penn wasn’t in town. Here he is, the Best Actor, all smiles and very jovial, yesterday at the LA Film Critics Association Awards, considered a much more reliable predictor of Oscar than the Globes. Slumdog cuties Dev Patel and Freida Pinto also showed up as did Sally Hawkins fresh off her win for Happy-Go-Lucky. Everyone’s campaigning.

Speaking of Colin – thank you for enthusiastic response to this article. Colin or friendship? Colin or Duana? Check the poll.

Tuesday – blogging all day in between beagle time. My poor Marcus is still not better.

Yours in gossip,


PS. Good luck to the Cecilia Ensemble Women’s Choir performing with special guests the Laudate Singers on Friday January 16th at 8pm at Holy Rosary Cathedral in support of Covenant House Vancouver! Admission by donation – for more details click here. Thank you so much for your support!

Much as I wish I had access to his schedule, I’ve no idea what George Clooney is doing in Washington. The inauguration is still a week away. Perhaps more lobbying? Whatever the reason, he arrived there today all smiles, looking fit and vibrant and full of charisma as usual and as enjoyable as the Globes were on Sunday, there would have been an added element of A list had he been there, non? George however has said he has a policy. Full Story

It was our fixation this week. That Ed Westwick’s suits were just a little too tight… Sorry this is late and thanks for your messages asking about today’s Gossip Girl post. Duana, Michelle, and I we live across the country from each other. It’s an excuse for us to talk smack on Skype, be totally unproductive, and catch up in that intangible way friends do when life and LIFE often takes over. Full Story

So Kate Moss and her boyfriend Jamie Hince went out for sushi today in London. Boyfriend and possible baby father? The UK press has been buzzing about it for weeks. Ugh. The dreaded bumpwatch.
