In response to many of your emails today about Once’s big win over Enchanted last night – we were squealing in the press room. If you’ve seen it, you obviously know why. But this has now become my biggest fear – love a celebrity, or a film, or a song, only to lose that affection just a little (or sometimes a lot in the case of Joaquin Phoenix Full Story

It makes me crazy that we are in the minority, you know? In the minority of those who know. Who know about the Pilot Gay. Who know about popping tents during massage therapy. Who can smell the Mo in him through a photo on a computer. Who look at the spray paint in his hair and shudder from revulsion. Full Story

The cutest!!! And in a day and age when brand name “A” list stars can’t sell movies anymore, wouldn’t you rather see Seth and Jonah, who are smart and funny and humble, wouldn’t you rather see them than Miley farking Cyrus on a red carpet??? This is what I’m saying. Full Story

As usual, his hair knocked out all competition on the carpet. Even the women. Speaking of women, his woman brought her usual misery – permascowl glued to her face the entire carpet and even when she tried to smile the eyes were devoid of true amusement. Some people are just born with bitch faces so they can’t help it. Full Story

Interrupting Oscar wrap-up to fill you in the much hyped Pitt/Aniston showdown Saturday at the Night Before Oscar party. Didn’t happen. Because the Pitts bailed. They spent a few hours at the Spirit Awards and then decided not to bother with the rest. Their absence can certainly be explained away by graciousness – perhaps it was kind of them not to flaunt the Second Coming in Jennifer’s face, perhaps they wanted to show some sensitivity, and you know I worship the Pitts and will always buy what they’re selling but it’s never easy with these two. Full Story

Worst Jailbait: Miley Cyrus

To be fair, her dress was impressively appropriate. Impressively because we all know how often this 15 year old has been dressed appropriately of late. Which of course is not at all. The propriety, unfortunately, stops there. Because the child then proceeded to cocktease the carpet and the paparazzi so hard that we were uncomfortable just watching her on the pool feed monitors, let alone in person. Full Story

Most Hungry: Renee Zellweger & Keri Russell

I interviewed Keri Russell at Sundance for Waitress. She had just announced her pregnancy and she was beautiful. Lovely skin, lovely healthy glow, sweet shy demeanour … at the risk of sounding cheesy, I was totally enchanted. Then she arrived last night full of bones and not much else. We were right behind her when she was posing at the 2nd photo wall and I swear the shoulder blades could have cut glass. Full Story

Don’t really care for her personality and not particularly down with the hype about her gorgessity but when it comes to wearing a dress and doing it justice… Heidi Klum is the sh*t. I almost missed a cue on live tv last night because of this dress. First of all, she’s tall. Like legitimately tall. Full Story

Worst Queen: Helen Mirren

Last year she rocked it in a Christian Lacroix. Last night she looked like she should have stayed home and needlepointed the evening away. In person, this dress was a disaster. I realise in photos and on tv, you were seeing the hot lights from the cameras and the set creating sparkle where there was very little. Full Story

Best Queen: Cate Blanchett

Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman should be taking a pregnancy page out of fellow Aussie Cate’s expectant couture. This is Dries Van Noten and it is exquisite. You should have seen the embroidery on the skirt – it was like something out of Versailles circa Louis XIV. Ridiculous. And she is HUGE. Full Story

Worst Taupe: Cameron Diaz

Not even my new love for Cammie could have saved last night. Last night she was washed out and bland. Last night she was Ann Bland. Ann Bland from Arrested Development. Ann Veal. Ann Egg. Who? Her? Sigh. I miss that show. Anyway, about Cam and bland. Bland pale pink, bland strapless Marchesa – of course Marchesa because most of Marchesa is the ass but Harvey Weinstein has propped Cam for a long, long time and she’s probably now angling for a part in his next great script. Full Story
