Dear Gossips,

The nominations are in!!! And there are a few surprises. One bigger than the rest. Because Angelina Jolie, considered a shoo-in up until this morning, was shut out in favour of Laura Linney in The Savages. But who can deny Laura Linney? In fact, it’s almost criminal that Hilary Swank has two while Laura Linney remains Oscar-less.

And go Ellen Page! And my Marion Cotillard! And of course the incomparable Cate Blanchett earning a nomination in both actress categories – for “imitating a man” in one of them. Tell that to that tool Billy Bush?

But despite the fact that the Pitts will not be bringing their porn to the Oscar red carpet this year, quiveration will still be aplenty. Clooney, Depp, Javier, and Viggo! Yum!

For the full list of nominees led by 8 each for There Will Be Blood and No Country for Old Men, click here.

Tuesday, am online all day, check back often.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. My Test the Nation score was 50 out of 60. Yay bloggers!

PPS. Keith Urban is not an uninterrupted cheater. At least not the one in question.

If you’ve been reading this column awhile, and if you’ve been paying close attention to the riddles, a grizzly one in particular, you should not be surprised. Still…it is shocking. And it is sad smut. Heath Ledger is Sad Smut. Yes, that is a riddle clue.  Full Story

I hope you were able to see the GMD’s freaky sci video last week. As you know, it was f&cking hilarious. And frightening. But this. This is genius. Genius on its own without any Tom Cruise recollection but if you remember Tom Cruise in the original, the brilliance of this new parody rises to another level. Full Story

Well this is how you do it, non? Check out Becks in Sierra Leone Saturday on a UN Children’s Fund misson. As you can see, the world press showed up… and what not? Becks was hot. So Becks too it off. And he played with the kids, and he smiled, and he made us quiver. Don’t tell me his abs aren’t sending a signal to your loins. Full Story

Ebola Battles the Olsens… again

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 22, 2008 07:14:32 January 22, 2008 07:14:32

Ebola has a hate on for the Olsens and it looks like she will stop at nothing to trump the twins. Is it because they’re richer than she is? As you know, Paris is no longer an heiress. At least not in the truest sense of the word. As you also know, the Olsen Twins are richer than stink – worth a reported billion dollars. Full Story

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 22, 2008 06:59:35 January 22, 2008 06:59:35

A month ago she was hiding dark bruises under her eyes. Word at the time was that she was undergoing some anti-age repairs. So now is this another case of repair? Check out Madge in London yesterday with a very suspicious green mark on her cheek that also could be explained away by plastic surgery. And certainly, we all hope that’s the case. Full Story

Quick recap: Widely rumoured to be an alleged one-time employee of Heidi Fleiss, Denise then met Charlie Sheen, they married, they had a child. And then began the lies.
