Daniela! Happy Birthday! Looking forward to seeing you at The Social with Maria. And, um, can I please read your thesis?! And for Laura - Happy Birthday! Ania wants you to know that age is nothing. Think of all you’ve done in that time. No 20 year old can step to that. Have a great weekend! By request – Oscar Isaac (ahem, I SAW HIM FIRST) and Kit Harington. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

They’re calling it a reunion. The Friends reunion. And Twitter went apesh-t over it yesterday. But is it really a reunion if they don’t know if all of them will actually be together? James Burrows will be honoured by NBC on a primetime special during February sweeps. He directed several  episodes of Friends, including the pilot. So at the Winter TCA yesterday, NBC chair Robert Greenblatt revealed that the Friends will “reunite” for the event...but then clarified that:

“I’m hoping all six will be in same room at same time; I’m not sure we can logistically pull it off.”

So, again, is it really a reunion if four of them are sitting together and two others have sent in their remarks via video message?

Anyway, Oscar nominations today. When Leo says later that his publicist/agent/manager/mom woke him up to tell him that he got called, I will believe it. That nomination has been secure for months. More nomination analysis through the day.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. I am Slytherin, proudly. Our house flag is flying at half-mast today.

I mentioned earlier that it was going to be a tense day and that’s because I was nervous and excited about The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, coming to The Social to tape a one hour special for Bell Let’s Talk Day on January 27th in support of mental health awareness.

We’re preparing ourselves for the inevitability of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar win, right? There’s always a chance that Bryan Cranston’s Trumbo hustle could pay off, or that Michael Fassbender will get off his ass and decide to participate and upset Leo, but I think we’re all resigned to “Academy Award Winner Leonardo DiCaprio” being his new official title. Full Story

Quick post because I saw these photos the other day and couldn’t wait to share them with you but then so much other sh-t got in the way. One of our common obsessions – celebrity friendships: how they happen, the more random the better. Whoopi Goldberg and Jesse Eisenberg went out for lunch together the other day. Full Story

Liam “stepped back” for Miley

I’m kinda tense today. There’s a lot going on. Maybe I’m crusty and seeing this story through a c-nt lens but the new cover and story for US Weekly just sent me into a rage. It’s about Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth maybe getting back together. You’ll recall, she was in Australia for New Year’s with him and they were seen making out at a music festival – click here Full Story

Remember when the idea of an Aquaman movie was a running joke on Entourage? And now we live in a world where Warner Brothers is seriously going to make an Aquaman movie. Which means we’re living in the Entourage universe. Truly, this is the darkest timeline. Aquaman: No, Seriously is slated for the summer of 2018 (though Aquaman and his wife, Mera, will appear in Justice League first), and it will be directed by James Wan of Furious 7 and Insidious fame. Full Story

Everybody’s talking about the Oscar nominations. And some people are talking about how Tom Hardy has a nomination and is in two Oscar nominated Best Pictures. OK but Domhnall Gleeson doesn’t have a nomination but he’s in The Revenant, Brooklyn, Star Wars, and Ex Machina, all films that received Oscar nominations today. Full Story

Rachel McAdams was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar this morning. TwiHards were hoping that Kristen Stewart would get in there, given that several critics associations singled her out and it was great to see her out there, hustling for it. But she was always going to be a dark horse. As I wrote last week – click here Full Story

So Saoirse Ronan grabs an Oscar nomination, which is not really a surprise, given that the buzz about Brooklyn has been huge, and that she’s a great actress. Remember, it’s not even her first nomination – that was for Atonement, back in 2008. What was a surprise was getting an amazing email yesterday from Aisling (ASHling), telling me that some in Ireland are beginning to accuse Saoirse of ‘Irishing-up’ her accent and general persona as she did North American press. Full Story
