Reese Witherspoon was nominated for a SAG award yesterday. She was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award today. There was never any doubt, was there? She’s good in Wild. And she’s connected in Hollywood. Jim Toth, her husband, is a major player at CAA. In that Jennifer Aniston article I posted earlier about her big victory over Brange the last two days, I wondered about a conspiracy theory. Full Story

Fallout from the Sony Hack continues, and this time it’s the new Bond movie, Spectre, caught in the crosshairs. Emails between the president of MGM, Jonathan Glickman, Bond producer Barbara Broccoli, and Sony executives, including co-chief Amy Pascal—is anyone having a worse week than Amy Pascal?—reveal that the new Bond movie is already way over budget, even though it just started filming on Monday. Full Story

Tonight is the premiere of Seth Rogen’s and James Franco’s new movie, The Interview, in which they play entertainment reporters attempting to assassinate Kim Jong-un.

This was not the way the week was expected to go for Angelina Jolie. No Golden Globes. And she gets implicated in the Sony email leak. AND Jennifer Aniston gets a SAG nomination and an invitation to the Beverly Hilton by the HFPA. It’s rare. Because the way the Jolie plays it, things usually go her way. Full Story

Princess Charlene of Monaco gave birth to twins on Wednesday, a boy and a girl.  The girl is older by two minutes, but because of the laws of succession running through males only, he’ll be the heir to the throne, not her.  So, compared to that irritating and antiquated turn of events, the nonmatching twin names are downright admirable. Full Story

SAG nomination yesterday, Golden Globe nomination today – Jake Gyllenhaal’s chances at an Oscar nomination are looking better and better. Bradley Cooper’s are not. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has given us a lot of WTF moments over the years. I’m not sure if the Brange and Unbroken shutout qualifies as a standard HFPA WTF the way The Tourist did, or, you know, Pia Zadora. Full Story

Yesterday US Weekly reported exclusively that Taylor Swift is “secretly” dating Matty Healy of The 1975. I don’t know how “secret” it is if we’ve been talking about it for over two weeks now. They’ve been wearing each other’s t-shirts. Full Story

Sarah messaged me right when I was coming off The Social this afternoon OMGing about the new Mad Max trailer. I pressed play as soon as I got back to my desk and wrote her back: Holy sh-t. HOLY SH-T. This is the best looking and best sounding trailer I’ve seen in…years. Now just to go back for a minute to the Sony email leaks – it was widely reported that production on Mad Max was troubled. Full Story
