SPOILERS Now that you’ve had a chance to get through thirteen episodes of Jessica Jones on Netflix, let’s talk about this marvelous show (no pun intended). Krysten Ritter stars as Jessica, a one-time superhero who, when we first meet her, has been deeply traumatized. She’s not hiding her powers but she’s no longer trying to lead the hero life, either, and she’s got obvious PTSD symptoms as well as an alcohol problem. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… At my place, definitely. We put up the tree on Saturday night. It looks AMAZING. All I want to do all day is sit in the living room and stare at it. As I mentioned last week, Jann Arden’s new album, A Jann Arden Christmas, was playing during our Christmas takeover.  Read Full Intro

It was announced today that Alicia Vikander will receive the Rising Star Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival in January. As you know, Alicia’s being positioned for an Oscar nomination for her work in The Danish Girl and she’s shown up on several critics’ lists as one of the best of the year though it remains to be seen how her chances will be affected by the category controversy between supporting and lead. Full Story

Is this an apology or a scolding?

I f-cking love Erykah Badu. Not only because you can’t f-ck with the Badu. And not only because she’s not a believer in Iggy Azalea. But also because when she’s apologising…well… she turns it into an occasion to guilt her kids. Yes. I approve of this parenting. Full Story

Finally had a chance last night to watch the full episode of Saturday Night Live with Ryan Gosling hosting. Last week I had some expectations. Then a few of you emailed and said it was sh-t. Sarah thought it was ok but not great. Because of this, because I was bracing for terrible, I actually liked it. Full Story

Marc Jacobs announced last night that Winona Ryder is the new face of Marc Jacobs Beauty. It’s the first time she’s fronted a line of beauty products. And it makes total, total, total sense. As he says on his Instagram post, they’ve known each other a long time. He’s dressed her for years. Full Story

Production on Ben Affleck’s Live By Night has moved to Los Angeles, or at least it was there yesterday. Ben and Sienna Miller were both photographed on set in costume yesterday with Sienna going full moll. Since it was announced that Sienna was cast in the film, we’ve all been trying to make this happen, right? Ben and Sienna? Gossip Genie? The tabloids are all over it but to my knowledge, there’s nothing there. Full Story

There has been an unusual amount of focus on the actress categories in the Oscar race this year, because for once there is an overabundance of worthy performances by actresses. Usually, these categories lock up pretty early with a clear frontrunner and the obvious runners-up, and it feels like we kind of scrape around the barrel looking for one or two people to round out the list of top ten female performances in a year. Full Story

In the previous post about Mark Wahlberg, I mentioned that there are two names that will always elicit screams from our audience at The Social. Channing Tatum is the other one. You just have to say “Channing Tatum” and people lose their f-cking minds. Now this I can support. Channing Tatum deserves it. Full Story
