It seems like these two are never not together. Gwyneth Paltrow presented. Chris Martin performed. And you can see him I think in the background of one of these shots of her. G, obviously, was there for her “beautiful friend” Beyonce. That’s no accident either. While there were complaints about her presence to introduce B’s performance, you have to know that she would have only been invited on the approval and probable recommendation of Beysus herself. Full Story

Boyhood won the BAFTA last night. But on Saturday, the Directors Guild picked Birdman. The DGAs are considered a very, very, VERY good predictor of Oscar Best Picture; only 7 times in history have the DGA and the Academy picked differently. Even still, Boyhood has its share of support. So with a week to go before the voting period closes, it’s a legitimate race. Full Story

Yesterday at the BAFTAs Chris Evans and Henry Cavill presented Julianne Moore with the Best Actress award. Two handsome men of the superhero persuasion stood next to each other, and the internet collectively lost its sh*t. It’s understandable—they’re both really, really, really ridiculously good-looking, though Beardy Chris Evans is working the facial hair better than Cavill. Full Story

I thought by now that I would be tired of it. Tired of Sia’s substitutes. But it actually keeps getting better. And now I wonder how it could possibly be better than Kristen Wiig’s performance last night. It’s her best acting of all time, like, ever. She was magnetic. I could not take my eyes off of her. Full Story

You know it was going to happen. That it wouldn’t be long before Twitter turned Rihanna’s Giambattista Valli Grammys dress into a meme. The meme: Rihanna Quince. Go look it up on Twitter. Here’s a taste:   rihanna wore this dress because she had to run to her quince guys pic.twitter.com/eiraTo4x4q Full Story

Did you see the Carters kiss when Beyonce won her Grammy? Duana texted me about 15 seconds later: “I just rewound that kiss three times. Did not buy. Am Conspiracy Theorist?” My reply: “Well they’ve never been known for their sexual chemistry.” Duana: “Isn’t that the whole point of the album?” Me: “She’s hot for herself. Full Story

Nicole Kidman’s Thierry Mugler last night was one of the carpet’s best. But f-ck her, we’re not giving her the satisfaction. Because did you watch her interview with Ryan Seacrest? He asks her the question. He asks her about the dress. She pauses. And then, “I don’t know what to say”. Full Story

Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshaw. Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Turner. Even Keira Knightley and James Righton. All fine and worthy candidates, sure. But for me, the title of Best BAFTA Couple belongs to the McDuffs, Anne-Marie Duff and James McAvoy, arguably the most acclaimed (though underrated) couple in the business. Full Story

It’s a good song…although I find it repetitive which is probably why it needed her. Because did she ever take the Church to another level, holy F-CK, Annie Lennox. Holy F-CK. Who could possibly follow that? Is that why I’m listening to No More I Love Yous on repeat this morning? And then there was Prince. Full Story

After all these years, do you feel differently now about what Kanye West did to Taylor Swift at the VMAs? “Imma let you finish”? It’s still a dick move, yes. But would you change Gossip History and remove it from the Gossip Books? I’m not even sure Taylor would want that expunged from the archives. Full Story

Vulture asked a very important question on Twitter last night: Who has more friends, Taylor or Gwyneth? It’s been a year now, right? Since I first started calling Taylor Swift the “Friend Collector”? She’s also, like, the official mascot of music award shows now too. Full Story
