Constance Wu at the Vanity Fair Oscar party. As far as I know, this is the first time she’s attended the Vanity Fair Oscar party. Because her profile is growing. And it will only continue to grow as we approach the release of Crazy Rich Asians in August. Full Story

No surprise here, right? Allison Janney won everything leading up the Oscars. What I liked about Allison’s acceptance speech last night was that she wasn’t there to pretend that she hadn’t won everything already and would probably win the biggest prize. Not to say that she was arrogant, because obviously she wasn’t. Full Story

I assumed I would walk away from my first weekend at the Oscars with some celebrity run-in anecdotes. I figured I would be riding elevators with Lin-Manuel Miranda (and Duana, she saw him first) or casually grabbing breakfast beside Zendaya and Tom Holland. That’s just what happens at the Oscars, right? I did not run into any of those celebs. Full Story

The following is not what’s foremost in my mind about the night. It’s not what I got the most mail about. But it is what I got the most urgent, searching mail about.  My friend Lauren easily, overtly loves the Oscars more than anyone I know. But even though she’s up on movie-everything and celebrity-everything, I don’t think we’ve ever really talked about, like, ‘shipping’. Full Story

Remember when Kelly Marie Tran almost quit acting and then, a year later, she was cast in Star Wars: The Last Jedi? And now she’s presenting at the Oscars!?! Rose Tico! At the Oscars! There are some people who weren’t feeling the Rose Tico and Finn storyline in The Last Jedi. Full Story

Leading up to the Oscars red carpet, the major story was not about any one of the A-list stars showing up to Hollywood’s biggest night. It wasn’t the dresses or the dates or any of the usual gossip and glamour we will get to tonight. The biggest story was Ryan Seacrest. The guy asking the questions became the question. Full Story

I mean, how do you follow up after… you know?  This year’s Oscar ceremony was, on balance, pretty great. It moved. There were a couple of surprises and warm moments, and more than one win that was a surprise while not quite being an upset. For example, while I had hopes for Best Director and Best Picture that didn’t quite come to fruition (more on those later), I couldn’t be mad at the universally beloved Guillermo Del Toro winning both awards and the whole place being delighted. Full Story

Kerry Washington's dress, with all those colours blending together, an impressionist painting, shimmering by the beach. (The Spirit Awards happen at the beach.) Elevated beach, obviously. But there's still something breezy about this look, don't you think?  Even with the booties. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It's Oscar Saturday! This weekend, all weekend, is a work weekend. Which is why so many celebrities make a point of being in LA on Oscar weekend, even if they're not nominated or they don't have films to promote.  Read Full Intro

I haven't been all that excited by Margot Robbie's style this award season. It hasn't been sh-t or anything. Just....kinda underwhelming?  It's Oscar weekend now though. And you don't hold back on Oscar weekend. Full Story
