Dear Gossips,

We’ve been saying for weeks that this looks like the most competitive Oscar race in years across all categories and as more and more film associations and critics’ boards announce their winners and nominations lists, so far, while there are certainly stronger contenders than others, there does not seem to be consensus, which of course makes it that much more unpredictable.  Read Full Intro

Princess Beatrice is getting married next year; a date hasn’t been set yet. She got engaged in September. Royals typically don’t wait too long between the engagement and the wedding. But these are extraordinary times. Because her dad is in some sh-t right now. And they have to worry about how much of a heatscore he’ll be at the wedding. Full Story

Hi Duana, I love your column and have been reading it all throughout my pregnancy! Now it’s my turn to add myself to the list of desperate preggos you receive letters from. Our second child, a girl, will be arriving December 19 by caesarean (if not before!) and we cannot settle on or find the right name. Full Story

Spoilers Watchmen’s penultimate episode, “A God Walks into Abar”, has a lot going on. It’s the entire history of Angela’s relationship with Cal/Doctor Manhattan, it explains how Adrian Veidt got to Europa, and where the Phillipses and Crookshankses came from, there is a time travel paradox, AND we get down to the Seventh Kavalry’s big play on Manhattan. Full Story

If you’ve been keeping track of One Direction band member albums, you’ll have one more to add to your collection after Friday. On December 6th, Liam Payne released his debut album LP1 along with a new single “Live Forever.” The album is 17 tracks long, although 9 of those are singles, many of which we’ve heard already since they were released in 2017 and 2018. Full Story

One Fox movie that Disney didn’t sh-tcan after taking control of the studio earlier this year is Free Guy, a Ryan Reynolds project in which he plays Guy, a non-player character in a video game who gains sentience.

Brad Pitt was last at the Golden Globes in January 2017 as a presenter. I don’t remember seeing him seated at a table though. He may have walked through the ballroom but there were no cutaways of him during the broadcast. It was four months after he and Angelina Jolie announced their divorce. He and Angelina, of course, were in the ballroom, and seated, a few times during their relationship. Full Story

The Queen received a Golden Globe nomination today for “Spirit”, the song she wrote for The Lion King. The Queen, however, has other things to think about. I wonder if she’s even going to show up. It’s not like she doesn’t have other things to do. Right now, the priority is IVY Park x adidas. Full Story

We’re doing more than one post today about the Golden Globe nominations but let’s start with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association because this is their event. This is a group of 90 or so international journalists known for making odd choices – and not always bad. In the television categories, the Globes often recognise new series and talent well ahead of the Emmys which can get caught in a rut, awarding the same shows and people over and over and over again. Full Story
