Sponsored Tingles: Red Carpet SCENEtourage - The Vow
The lead-up to Oscars has many storylines and we’ll be covering them all the way until the big show on February 26th. And while the Oscars are about celebrating last year’s top movies, new ones keep coming and we’ll be previewing a few that are arriving in theatres this month that have links – some loose and some not so loose – to Oscar.
The Academy announced yesterday that Milla Jovovich will present the Science & Technology Oscars on Saturday. I guess they’re not ready for Blake Lively yet.
Rachel McAdams hosted the event in 2006. In 2010 she attended the Oscars proper, presenting with Jake Gyllenhaal. OMG, remember that? And we all wanted them to be boyfriend and girlfriend?
Her new movie The Vow opens on Friday. If you see the movie in Toronto and you hear someone sobbing in the back row, that would be Sasha. She’s been waiting for this for months. Like, actually preparing her tears.
The Hollywood premiere for The Vow was last night. You know, if you’ve been reading the site long enough, that we all love Rachel McAdams here. So much that when we can’t offer something nice, it’s done with a very small voice. I am whispering then when I say that the fringe, it’s all wrong. The makeup is... a little harsh? It’s too much. And it kinda spoils an otherwise lovely dress in a lovely colour.
But how about some good news to balance then?
Rachel showed up on the carpet at the Journey 2: Mysterious Island last week. Why? Evan Turner, the producer of Journey 2, reached out to me the other day to say that he’s dating Kayleen McAdams, Rachel’s sister. So it was a family situation. And not a business one.
As for The Vow’s business...
How many of you are going this weekend for a good cry? Don’t lie. I want you to tell me all about it. It’s not like I won’t be hearing it from Sasha anyway.
