This is Georgina Chapman last night headed to the Waverly Inn in NYC for a pre-wedding party. Her own pre-wedding party. Georgina is a former model, now the designer behind Marchesa. Which is ugly but not the point. The point is… look at her. She is gorgeous. And she is marrrying Harvey Weinstein. Full Story
I remember seeing Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger at TIFF 2006 at the Holt Renfrew Burberry party. They had just started dating that summer, it was new and fresh and they took care to arrive separately, in separate cars 15 minutes apart, walking the carpet and the press line well clear of each other only to quickly reunite inside the party with their hands clasped the entire time.

For the premiere of National Treasure: Book of Secrets. Ugh. Why does he keep making the same sh*t movie over and over? Remember Leaving Las Vegas? Remember Adaptation? What happened to his drive? Isn’t he rich enough yet? Actually… maybe not. Surprisingly couldn’t find any photos of Nic with his mail order bride Alice who was all of 18 when they met while she was waiting on his table at a restaurant and got knocked up quicker than you can say landed immigrant.

In early November, Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams were spotted in Brooklyn having dinner. The two have known each other since co-starring in The United States of Leland and while there was no suggestion from the outing that it was anything more than 2 friends catching up, I wrote at the time that if sparks flew, I’d be all over it.

Atonement led the way this morning earning 7 nominations including best actress and actor acknowledgements for both Keira Knightley and James McAvoy. Which is no surprise. Even before TIFF, the film’s buzz was loud. And deservedly so.
But will there even be a show? Due to the writer’s strike, there’s been noise that many of the actors won’t show up, leading to speculation that the event could be cancelled - intriguing because this has the potential to be one of the most star-studded Globes in years with the return of Julia Roberts and a long list of super elites as George Clooney’s early campaigning has paid off with a Best Actor nomination, Angelina Jolie has secured one herself in the category of Best Actress in a Drama, and Johnny Depp too for Sweeney Todd on the Comedy/Musical side.
No real surprises there…but it’s on the tv side where it went wonky.
Because Friday Night Lights … nothing. NOT ONE major nomination. The best show on television, the most perfect season, the most critically acclaimed…and nothing. But Grey’s Anatomy, after the ridiculously sh*tty season they had last year, and the ridiculously sh*tty season they’re continuing this year, Grey’s Anatomy is nominated for Best Drama. And ugh… of course that manipulative little bitch Katherine Heigl too.
Does the Hollywood Foreign Press Association hate Texas?
Full a full list of nominees, click here. If all goes as planned, the Globes go down on January 13th. That carpet will be mayhem!
Thursday – all day blogging, check back often.
Yours in gossip,
PS. Happy 42nd birthday to Rebecca from daughter Angelica in college. I hear gossiping on my site is a mother/daughter ritual. Am so honoured! Thank you, love you, owe you!
PPS. Catherine Zeta-Jones is not on Holiday Detox. Neither Rachel Weisz. Or Jennifer Connelly. Or Kate Hudson.
Much better. At the premiere of Closing the Ring tonight, Mischa has bounced back. Does she need some powder? Yes. Are these photos taken from close range at bad angles. Absolutely. But it’s so refreshing seeing a young actress dress not generically. Generic like Lauren Conrad…you know what I mean. Full Story
In April 2007, Roger Ebert started going to the movies again after fighting cancer. By his own description, he wasn’t the most attractive man, even for a movie critic. But that’s just physical. His comeback was one of the most touching moments of the year. And his candour about it all was equally moving. Full Story
Giving You Everything is the Spice Girls one hour documentary airing next week narrated by the girls themselves over the course of the last few months leading up to their reunion tour with exclusive backstage access and archival footage. You’d think it would be typical campy snap and pop. But surprisingly, the Spices were willing to dig deep, discussing eating disorders, catfights, and more. Full Story
Spice Girls were at Heathrow today to open Virgin Atlantic’s new terminal at the airport. Poor Baby Emma has been hobbled after tripping on stage during the concert the other night. The girls’ multi-date run in London begins in a few which means they’ll be spending Christmas back in England. Full Story
