Dear Gossips,

T-Boz and Chilli have launched a Kickstarter campaign for the fifth and final album. And after reading about that last night, I lost myself in a TLC nostalgia black hole. If you’re of the era, I know you remember too. If you’re of the era, they meant a lot to you. They mean a lot to you.

You might as well be honest
Cuz the body never lies

Did you ever see the VH1 movie about TLC, CrazySexyCool, from a couple of years ago? I’m telling you, if you haven’t, clear your schedule tonight and make that happen. I’ve attached the trailer below. Look at the attention to the detail. Every single detail from those videos. The pyjamas in the wind machine in the Creep video?

EVERYTHING.

And you know what they’re giving away as part of the Kickstarter?

Um.  Read Full Intro

Ben Affleck is in Atlanta working on The Accountant. He’s the Accountant but really he’s an assassin. Today he was in assassin mode, shooting a scene where he comes up from behind on a dude and stabs him in the chest. Oscar nominee and likely winner, JK Simmons, is also in this film along with Anna Kendrick. Full Story

Traditionally, getting from Sundance to Oscar is a long, hard road that not many films manage to successfully navigate. There’s usually a token Sundance stand-out nominated for an Oscar, often in the screenplay categories, but it’s hard for a film to maintain the necessary momentum for an entire year and bag an Oscar nomination the next year. Full Story

Gwyneth spent last week getting candid during interviews to promote Mortdecai without Johnny Depp. Depp finally decided to show up late last week so for the weekend, we find G in Mexico with friends, showing off the fitness. She looks happy and relaxed. She does not look like she gives a sh-t that Martin Lawrence is eating by candlelight. Full Story

As mentioned yesterday in the Smutty Roundup, Katie Holmes is in Berlin for Fashion Week. Today she was front row at the Marc Cain show. Beautiful coat. Love the sweater dress. And the boots. If she had quit there, we’d be good. But that hat… That hat takes it from steezy to try, non? The hat is the detail that makes it uncomfortable. Full Story

Kristen Stewart would like some of that Marvel gravy

Kristen Stewart is still doing some promotion for Still Alice, which has opened in a few more theaters on the back of Julianne Moore’s Oscar nomination (it’s doing pretty well in the specialty market, too). She gave an interview to Yahoo to support the movie and she said some really nice things about Moore—whom she’s known personally for years—and the experience of working with actresses like Moore and Juliette Binoche, and if you’re a KStew fan it’s a nice read. Full Story

Anne Hathaway has been out there doing press for the upcoming Song One but since everyone’s in award season fever, she’s kind of moving under the radar. By her standards. Usually Annie tops the headlines. Here she is in New York in a green coat – great colour on her. Annie talked to Hitfix Full Story

Kevin Hart's character selection

Kevin Hart’s The Wedding Ringer was supposed to open big – it would have been his fourth #1 but as it stands, American Sniper is exceeding expectations and Paddington is being bolstered by fantastic reviews (like Sarah’s here). So Kevin has to settle for a slim #2 which, if you’ve been following Kevin Hart, is not what he wants. Full Story

She’s everything you expect Olivia Pope to be and her resume includes advisor to people who are Heads of State and Executives of Major Corporations. She just advised on the Sony leak. She is the Big Time. Full Story

Marion Cotillard was in the States for a couple of weeks and some thought she’d be done with award season after Critics Choice. But we now know she’ll be back…because last Thursday, the Oscars invited her to the Best Actress party. It’s important to note how much respect she has within the Academy too to have been nominated (again) because her role in Two Days, One Night is in French (again), her second nomination for a non-English role. Full Story

Now Emily Blunt is in that Huntsman movie, too

With production set to begin in London in April on The Huntsman, Universal is trying to get all their ducks in a row. I say “trying” because it doesn’t seem to be going well. Snow White and the Huntsman was a modest hit in 2012, just eking out enough to make the bean counters think a follow-up could be profitable, but that would largely depend on controlling costs and not spending $500 million to put the thing in theaters. Full Story

Elizabeth Olsen was papped the other day grocery shopping and not wearing her engagement ring. US Weekly then followed with confirmation from sources yesterday that she and Boyd Holbrook have ended their relationship. I swear, I was just thinking on the weekend while watching The Skeleton Twins, about how hot he is. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

American Sniper broke all kinds of records at the box office this weekend, right after the film was nominated for several Oscars. And it’s not a headline that Oscar voters would have missed. Which means it’s not a legitimate contender for Best Picture. And maybe don’t count out Bradley Cooper for Best Actor. You don’t think he’ll just concede to Michael Keaton, do you?

Not paying attention to the facts of the story clearly didn’t hurt Murica Sniper’s appeal. The filmmakers will tell you that the point of the movie is to expose the hard toll of war on everyone. But they’ve also helped glorify someone who – it’s been proven time and again, click here  Read Full Intro
