Dear Gossips,

Sandra Bullock was in Sao Paolo this week promoting her new movie Bird Box which premieres on Netflix on December 21. Basically Netflix’s strategy is to get you to stay home during the holiday season and not leave the couch.  Read Full Intro

At post time, the Academy has still not yet announced a replacement for Kevin Hart as the host of the Oscars. There are rumours that they may decide to go with no host for the Oscars. This is, apparently, not a job that anyone wants. Or is it that no one that they want wants the job? How deep is their list? How creative is their list of possible hosts? Duana and discuss the work of hosting the Oscars and we take the opportunity to sh-t on the people who did sh-t work when they were hosting the Oscars. Full Story

Raise your hand if you knew Idris Elba as DCI Luther before you knew him as Stringer Bell. I can’t be the only one. Elba was Stringer Bell first, but Luther was his breakout role, the thing that made him everyone’s favorite leading man and the once and future Bond. On January 1 he’s back with a fifth series of Luther, and this time Ruth Wilson is also returning as Alice Morgan. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

In 2005, filmmaker Ameesha Joshi was at a World Press Photo Exhibit when she came across pictures of Indian girls boxing on the beach. Ameesha is a first-generation Canadian born to Indian parents and she understood immediately the social pressures the boxers would face, on top of all the pressure to train and perform.  Read Full Intro

In case you missed it… this was the headline of the day yesterday, involving Julia Roberts and her “holes”, which are getting better with age. It’s a story made for Michael K and Dlisted because, well, only he could write an entire article about holes that namechecks Lohan, goop, and Paul Rudd while reminding us that it’s time for another viewing of Steel Magnolias. Full Story

I’m not saying that like it’s a complaint. More like… sarcasm. Because it’s almost the end of the year and many of you spent several months this year worrying that Victoria and David Beckham wouldn’t make it to the end of the year. Full Story

Check out Joe Alwyn last night at the premiere of Mary Queen of Scots. Interesting pant length happening here. Why not show off those boots, right? I don’t hate it. But it’s definitely shorter than the usual, especially with the slight flare at the hem. Kinda like the mom jeans I’m obsessed with right now. Full Story

Mary, Queen of Scots is getting mixed reviews. Here’s why I’m seeing it: for the performances from the entire cast, led by Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie, but also because the case includes Gemma Chan. An Asian woman in a British historical period piece! Big ups to director Josie Rourke for no-big-dealing it too. Full Story
