On Saturday Deadline held “The Contenders” at the Directors Guild of America, a day-long symposium in which every distributor with Oscar hopes presented their award season wares, and many actors and filmmakers showed up to hustle. Most of the actors who showed up have outside chances at best, like newly-minted superhero Chadwick Boseman, who’s got a little buzz going for the James Brown biopic, Get On Up, and Shailene Woodley, who’s hoping to score a Best Actress nomination for The Fault In Our Stars.

As I sat down to watch The Affair last night, my husband talked about how he thought there were two kinds of affairs: “The sad kind” – where the people in the affair are sad they’re cheating or hurting someone else, and the kind where “people aren’t sad but they’re assholes”. Full Story
Is Miley Cyrus dating Patrick Schwarzenegger? On Friday they were at her place first, then stopped by his apartment so he could pick up his Halloween costume. I mean, it could be anything. But they supposedly hooked up briefly three years ago and, well, it’s a good story. They’re both 21. Full Story
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were photographed leaving a Halloween party on Friday I guess before they took their kids out trick or treating. As you can see, Ben’s wearing eyeliner and breasts and Jennifer’s in a bat fascinator. The pap agency said she was “in no mood for pictures”. Full Story
Part of it is our fault, why we can’t get over Bennifer – that is, the precious Gossip Artifact that was Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. Part of it is their fault. They can’t stop talking about it. JLO’s book True Love comes out tomorrow. You can’t call your book True Love without talking about your love life. Full Story
The Walking Dead season 5, episode 4 recap. Correction from last week: Father Gabe locked his congregation OUT of the church, leaving them to get eaten, not in it. But the point still stands—Gabriel has been established as a craven coward without the necessary survival skills. How long will he survive? How much damage can/will he do to the group in the meantime? Also, will we ever see Rick & Co. Full Story

My friend Lorella sent me a text today with a video link and only this to explain:
F-ck! F-ck! F-ck!
So I thought I’d pass it along to you. The video is below. Enjoy it.
Kate Hudson’s annual Halloween party happened last night, Sons Of Anarchy themed. This was her costume:
But as much as I normally object to her, I prefer Katy Perry’s costume: a giant Cheeto. Or a sunburned dick. You’d have to crank the air conditioning but the best part is no one knows what’s going on underneath. That’s the highest level of comfort.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! And have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
Greetings Gossips! Lainey’s stuck in a Halloween shoot the rest of the day so I’m finishing off the week with Tingles. Thank you as always for reading our site.
PS… To our US readers…apologies for all the pops ups this week. I have our ad partners on the case as there’s some kind of rogue ad script that’s causing them. They’re certainly not intentional and not harmful to your computer. Just super annoying. Hoping to have it resolved by EOD.

Ryan Gosling cracked a smile yesterday on the set of The Nice Guys in Atlanta. He’s shooting the movie with Russell Crowe, seen here earlier in the week, looking as he always does – no nonsense. I’ve interviewed Crowe and he was lovely – at least to me – but I was terrified. Full Story
