SAG Try Hard: Lea Michele is the new Longoria

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 25, 2010 05:41:45 January 25, 2010 05:41:45

The Desperate Housewives have all but disappeared from awards shows. In their place – Lea Michele as the new Eva Longoria. There will be ruffles, there will be a train, and above all else, a naked ambition to be the star, the only star. Lea Michele is Rachel Berry. How utterly unoriginal. So Rachel Michele showed up in green Catherine Malandrino and a plunging neckline. Full Story

SAG Men: Firth & Ham

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 25, 2010 05:35:11 January 25, 2010 05:35:11

A Single Man + Mad Men = lady boners. What’s up Pitt and Pattinson, now THIS is a beard. Jon Hamm is the American sex. And Colin Firth, sigh, is the British elegance. We differ however on their ladies. I just... Jennifer WestFeldt...the camera whoring, unintentional or not, is making me crazy. Full Story

SAG Capable: Meryl & Tina

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 25, 2010 05:25:50 January 25, 2010 05:25:50

Meryl Streep in Balenciaga – love. Tina Fey in Ferragamo – not my favourite. It’s the shine, it gives lumps when there are no lumps. But who cares? These are CAPABLE women. Thinking women. Women who don’t stress about the aesthetic but who will still matter when the aesthetic is no more. Full Story

SAG Imitation of Hilary Swank: Kate Hudson

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 25, 2010 05:20:34 January 25, 2010 05:20:34

How did Kate Hudson manage to get up on stage twice? (We’ll discuss the Pippy connection later). This is how you know our girl is manslinging HARD. Because she wore a dress for a nominee. When Hilary Swank did it, she was the leading contender for Best Actress Oscar. And won. Ugh. Still, Swank’s selection merited her stature. Full Story

Old SAG girl beats New SAG girls: Helen Mirren

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 25, 2010 05:15:05 January 25, 2010 05:15:05

Relax. Old doesn’t have to pejorative. Old in this case is simply the opposite of “new”. Old in this case is also better than new. Because confronted with all these fresh, young faces, Helen Mirren stood stately and superior above them. That’s a sexy bitch, non? STUNNING. A cut above the ones coming now. Full Story

2010 SAGs

Low on drama and not even Meryl Streep could understand what Christoph Waltz was saying and George didn’t come with the Italian Queen. He did however present the final award of the night. Because George Clooney is the Chairman. And he looked so great, didn’t he look so great? Tired but exhilarated from the night before after managing a celebrity call centre and raising almost $60 million, now that’s a beard I can work with. Full Story

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 25, 2010 05:03:36 January 25, 2010 05:03:36

Happy belated 35th Birthday Natalie with love from Tasha. To Mary C and Buffalo Cody who is SO CUTE – congratulations on the adoption! So happy for you that he’s a good puppy. Unlike my prick of a beagle Marcus who was the worst puppy ever. This is for Brooklyn P from Boston but currently in Park City for Sundance, hanging out with the etalk crew on Saturday night – thanks so much for supporting my site and passing it on to my producer Chris Fisher because I’m totally trying to score points with him, yet again, when Harry Potter time comes ‘round. Full Story

Franco opens Sundance

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 22, 2010 13:11:58 January 22, 2010 13:11:58

Well, technically, Howl opened Sundance yesterday. A doc-style biopic on Allen Ginsberg with James Franco playing the iconic poet. As you know, my quiver for him has been tempered dramatically recently due in large part to his large-ish thighs. They seemed to be more reined in last night at the premiere but still. Full Story
