Remember when James Franco reviewed Ryan Gosling’s performance in The Place Beyond The Pines? Click here for a refresher. He was crushing, hard. Too hard. Too extra. It was patronising. It was a compliment to cover the snark. He’s just done it again with Jake Gyllenhaal. Full Story

The Newsroom Season 3 episode 1 Well, the pigs are flying and the heroes are in trees and I really, really enjoyed the first episode of The Newsroom this season. This is, of course, not how the plan is supposed to go. The Newsroom is supposed to be strictly for snarking, and giggling, and for rolling your eyes all “Oh of COURSE you aren’t making any mistakes, you have the benefit of perspective”. Full Story

This past weekend she made an appearance in New York at Martha Stewart’s Made in America event.

Reese Witherspoon is practically a lock for a Best Actress nomination, likely for her nomination in Wild. Julianne Moore is in the lead right now and if it was a merit-based competition, it would be Julianne, no doubt.
