I said it last night on Twitter, but there’s very little that’s crueler than being up for an award with four other people if one of the people—the one who is CERTAIN not to win anything—shares three syllables of a name with you. “And the Oscar goes to…Mark Ru-“ (Time stops. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence: the Oscar last

I was still on the balcony last night finishing up some shots when we started hearing the commotion in our earpieces to try to time a standup for Jennifer Lawrence’s arrival. It was, literally, two minutes to show time. Literally. She came with David O Russell, took a few pictures, and then there was a scramble to hustle her all the way down the carpet, around the corner, and up the stairs. Full Story

There have been some FUSSY emails today about botox or fillers or micro derma Sweet Potatoes and why we aren’t writing indictments of everyone suspected to use these things. I think 2003 has come and gone, you know? From what I understand, accusing most Hollywood performers of using these things is like accusing them of using deodorant. Full Story

“Who do you hate more – Justin Timberlake or Leonardo DiCaprio?” – what I just asked Duana a few minutes ago that resulted in a really fun discussion about who, really, is the worst. For her it’s Leo. And the difference is Saturday Night Live. In Duana’s mind, JT’s willingness to at least try it makes him more tolerable than Leo who, as we know, refuses to put himself out there. Full Story

First a brief moment to say that, though her outfit did not fit well (and see earlier where I don’t understand why we commit crimes against breasts), I would always rather see an interesting choice that’s not quite right than a boring column. Full Story

“It came true.” Word spoken by another Best Supporting Actress a couple of years ago. But in Annie Hathaway’s case, it took a LOT longer. For Alicia Vikander? Seems like it was just 12 months, when she told W Magazine that she’d have three films in contention at the Oscars. Full Story

I love, love, love the word ‘suck’. Not like ‘that sucks’, although I do frequently employ that terminology— but like, ‘you’re being a suck’. Remember when we were kids and someone was always being a sucky baby? Now when we talk about it, we use kids’ language and say someone is ‘taking their toys and going home’, but at least there’s a bit of flounce and drama to doing that. Full Story

Rachel McAdams presented last night with Michael B Jordan. MBJ did not walk the carpet. So there are very few shots of him, which is disappointing because, hello, he’s Michael B Jordan. Anyway, after they presented all kinds of people tweeted at me about Gossip Genie’ing the two of them together because, indeed, they did look really cute together. Full Story
