Page Six is suggesting today that Gwyneth Paltrow got a boob job. Something about her flashing a nipple in her movie Two Lovers with Joaquin Phoenix and her breast looking like that of a 15 year old. Full Story

It’s Mimi! And she’s at the centre of all these baby Mimi rumours! So here she is this morning on CBS for the Early Show in support of the Make-A-Wish-Foundation Macy’s “Believe” campaign. Do you see a Cheese Bump? She’s wearing a tight enough dress for it. Me I’m not very good at BumpWatch. Full Story

Good Viggo, Grumpy Spittle

Need some quiver on a Friday? Two options. My recommendation is Door #1. Viggo Mortensen last night in NY for the premiere of Good. Viggo was smiley and scary at the same time. It’s his special gift. Viggo was supposed to have been right in the thick of it this awards season as The Road was originally scheduled for December release. Full Story

Can’t decide

Do you like Courteney Cox’s botox? I can’t decide. It’s certainly better than Granny Freeze. And she does look beautiful – Courteney opted for casual at the Marley & Me LA premiere to support her bestie Jennifer Aniston – but there’s a tightness in her eyes, and the way the nose pinches… it lacks warmth, it lacks life, it lacks animation. Full Story

TV Girl helps TV Girl

The Ungrateful Princess of AssTalk can afford to be generous. Because in just two short years Katherine Heigl has managed to claw her way to a top 5 ranking among actresses, just behind the Jolie, Julia, Reese, and Cam. She did what few have done – not even Rachel Green. Katie Heigl the TV Girl made the jump. Full Story

Hair, Legs, Douchebags, and Dogs

This is how she’s selling her movie. It’s Jennifer Aniston looking amazing last night at the LA premiere of Marley & Me in perhaps one of the shortest dresses she’s ever worn, showing off those legs, that crazy body, hair blown out to perfection, arms wrapped reassuringly around a fragile Owen Wilson, not posing with her douchey boyfriend John Mayer, but summoning him there anyway to make sure you know he’s her douchey boyfriend. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Um… the GMD for Best Supporting Actor in Tropic Thunder? Taking a spot from Josh Brolin in Milk??? He’s back, see? UGH.

The Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning and there were a few surprises, including the fact that Milk was virtually ignored with only Sean Penn receiving a nod for Best Actor as the film was shut out of the Best Picture category even though the NY Film Critics just awarded it the best of 2008.

Oh. And JailBait. Miley Cyrus up for Best Song. Ruined my day.

The bright spots? Definitely Slumdog Millionaire and DEFINITELY RDJ as Best Supporting Actor too!

And on a smutty level, the Globes this year from a nominee standpoint look to be super star studded with the Brange both nominated (Pitt Porn!), and Tom Cruise dragging Katie Holmes with him, and Leonardo DiCaprio, and Kate Winslet (she scored a double) and Colin Farrell, and both Meryl Streep and Emma Thompson - squee!!!

Note however that the Globes are not often the most accurate prognosticator of Oscar. Last year Atonement took home top prize which means Milk still has a chance though it has taken quite a hit.

Thoughts on this morning’s nominations? Always love to read your comments.

It’s Thursday – if you haven’t seen Jennifer Aniston naked in GQ yet, scroll down to get caught up on late day posts. New articles all day. Remember to refresh.

Yours in gossip,
