Ryan Gosling did not walk the carpet at the SAGs. He didn’t walk at the Golden Globes either. Don’t be surprised if he doesn’t walk at the Oscars; he was confirmed as a presenter last week. Inevitable next question: Rachel? Ryan and Rachel? They weren’t seated very close to each other at all at the SAGs. Full Story

The SAG Awards were only two hours long. Did you recognise more of yourself and the people in your life in those two short hours than you have during an award show in a while? Sure, it wasn’t perfect. But before perfect, we have to get to better. One of those moments of “better” happened when Tina Fey and Amy Poehler presented Carol Burnett with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Full Story

Queen Latifah won a SAG Award for her work in Bessie. And it doesn’t seem like she was expecting it, because, as she said, “I am in shock”. I had to rewind her speech a few times though to unpack what she said, very quickly, afterwards, because it stayed with me – did you catch it too? “I am in shock right now. Full Story

The Screen Actors love Uzo Aduba. And they love Orange Is The New Black. As you saw on that stage and in these photos…the women! Women who may not have had a place in the industry before, celebrating the moment. OITNB is on Netflix.

February 1, 2016 – Smutty Shout-Outs

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 1, 2016 12:09:23 February 1, 2016 12:09:23

This is a shameless shout-out for me. On February 24th, I will be competing in a fitness competition called Guts + Glory in support of Covenant House alongside 5 teammates. There are 10 challenges and they are stupid hard, like f-ck. Pretty sure getting over a wall with a rope is one of them. This is a problem for me because, even though I work out, I’m not athletic. Full Story

It’s been a week since Mimi and James Packer got engaged. Last night she accompanied him to the G’Day Los Angeles Gala for their first official appearance since he put that monster of a rock on her finger. Look at all that happiness on her face. That’s a glow only money can buy. Full Story
