Why isn’t Ricky Gervais the host of an awards show… any awards show? His moment with Kate Winslet was gold – remember her appearance on Extras?Kate Winslet on Extras montage The cutest thing, Kate’s friendship with Leo, non? And it’s hard to reconcile too. That he can at once appreciate the amazing woman that is Kate Winslet and still at the same time exclusively date teenage models. Full Story

Slumdog, Slumdog – yes, yes, YES!
The little movie kicked big ass last night at the Critics’ Choice Awards taking home Best Picture, Best Director, Best Writer, and Best Young Actor for Dev Patel pretty much assuring an Oscar nomination and, perhaps, just maybe, a crazy unthinkable impossible win for Slumdog the Underdog on February 22nd… ??? Can you stand it? And have you seen it? You must.
So Round 1 goes to Sean Penn. Named Best Actor over Mickey Rourke even though it’s the critics who have been the most supportive of Mickey’s comeback turn in The Wrestler. When it comes to industry votes then, Sean has to be considered an overwhelming favourite. Rourke has 6 weeks to rally… will he?
And the ladies of Pradia tie. Love.

Here’s my Freida Pinto with Danny Boyle and the Slumdog team last night and also at a style party just before looking exquisite in black. Dev Patel couldn’t come. Hopefully he’ll be around on Sunday.

Have a great weekend. Enjoy the Globes! Full Globe wrap-up on Monday morning!

It could be me if you need one. For the Globes on Sunday. You said you were chuffed about your nomination and I was equally for you. This must be why you’re in LA. And looking perfect. The leather jacket is perfect. The pants fit you perfectly. Your gait, your no nonsense expression, perfect. The clingy tee you’re wearing underneath…it’s a good thing I can’t see it. Full Story
A very, very, VERY thin Lindsay Lohan was spotted with her 40 year old sister Ali yesterday. Quite an achievement - to win a skinny-off against a 14 year old. Her legs in those jeans! Word is Lilo is in total denial about her relationship with Samantha Ronson. Apparently Samantha did break up with her but she’s refusing to accept it. Full Story
Not that I want to get older faster but I can’t wait to see what Romeo Beckham will look like in 10 years. Is that pervy? Victoria took her boys to eat at D&G last night in Milan – how can fashion people open up a restaurant? What would they serve? – but of her three sons, only Romeo dressed up for the occasion.

Have never felt strongly either way about Aaron Eckhart. He can be a dick but nothing that distinguishes him from the pack, and a few years back at TIFF, Elle Macpherson tried to maul him and he was like – um, I’ll take a pass because your ferocious lioness play is freakin’ me out… which for some can be interpreted as a little limp.

Emile Hirsch is a Sean Penn protégé. Professionally and personally. Recently during the Milk promotional tour, Emile was approached by two eager, Hello Kitty style fans who’d been wating, and squealing, and holding hands, and clutching their stuffed toys, angst-ridden over meeting their idol.
