Argo received 7 Oscar nominations today including Best Picture. So Ben Affleck, who is listed on the official producer list, along with George Clooney, has an invitation. But what he really wanted, though he probably won’t admit it, was the Best Director acknowledgement. And they said, nope, not yet. Full Story

Justin Bieber was caught with what looks like a blunt and now his people are all trying to blame Lil Twist for being a bad influence. (Source) Why is it that when Justin Bieber does something generally perceived as “positive”, no one else gets credit for it? It’s a page out of the Lindsay Lohan Playbook: never take accountability. Full Story

You can never go wrong with a Jennifer Lopez magazine spread. Not even if they’re sh-tty pictures. Even when they’re sh-tty the camera loves her. And she knows how to do something with it. “Jennifer Lopez is standing on the terrace of the Ciragan Palace hotel in Istanbul, shooting the cover of Bazaar. Full Story

OK, you guys? JENNIFER LAWRENCE IS NORMAL. Anne Hathaway’s Oscar message is that she’s not sexy and she has to try harder than everyone else, always with an apology. Jennifer Lawrence’s overall message, one that she consistently puts out there in every interview, is that, despite having one of the best years in Hollywood, with a proper franchise on her resume (Hunger Games) and, presumably, about to receive her second Oscar nomination, at just 22, she is NORMAL. Full Story

In this case, We Are All Jonah Hill. Look at him with Leonardo DiCaprio in Sydney the other day, gratefully accepting his role as Bro of Leo, down with his boy at all times of day and night, whatever he needs, and keeper of all secrets, honoured to have been bestowed the position. For now? But wouldn’t it be amazing if one day, Jonah Hill pulled a Truman Capote on the Pussy Posse? “All literature is gossip”, Capote said, so there’s your answer the next time some pretentious twat tries to make you feel like sh-t for caring about the time Ben Affleck went to a peeler bar and slipped his finger inside when a dancer was on his lap. Full Story

As I reported yesterday -- click here for a refresher -- Blake Lively’s Martha Stewart Wedding wasn’t exactly as we expected. There are no faces -- not on the cover, not inside, nowhere. The only shot we get of Blake is of her hand holding Ryan Reynold’s and a corner of her dress. Full Story

Ben Affleck is in Washington today at a House Armed Services Committee hearing on the situation in Congo. He’s been advocating for awareness in the region for a while now. Did you ever see State Of Play? Did you find him convincing? I did. Very. And in real life Jennifer Garner would be so much more effective than Robin Wright because of the cookie-baker exterior. Full Story

Not even 10 years ago, the Beckhams were blamed, in part, for lowering the prestige of the Burberry brand -- they were associated with the “chav”-ness of the label and, rumour has it, for a while there, Mrs Beckham in particular, was banned from wearing it. Click here Full Story

Sean Penn wrote about Sean Penn for Esquire. As celebrity interview/articles go, this one isn’t a puff piece. There is some insight. There is a lot of honesty, and it goes hand in hand with a lot of self-congratulation, but at least it’s not boring. He comes from a generation of actors -- let’s call it, arbitrarily, the Class of ’81: the Sean Penns, the Tom Cruises -- who are not boring, and certainly so much more interesting than the Ashley Greenes and the Chace Crawfords being trotted out one after another. Full Story
