Dear Gossips,

More and more Oscar experts seem to be switching over to Emmanuelle Riva for Best Actress. And Ang Li for Life Of Pi seems to be gaining momentum too as we enter the final hours for Academy members to decide which ends today. Is it possible that Lincoln will lose out on Best Picture AND Director? Some say too that Harvey Weinstein’s been pushing hard the last 4 or 5 days for Silver Linings Playbook, and while Argo is still considered the favourite, none of the predictors seem to be submitting their ballots with any sense of... certainty.

You know what happens when the voting stops though? Parties! They start tonight. Every single night. And several. Even for those not nominated. Please. Especially for those not nominated. They might actually be working harder than the campaigners. This... kinda used to be Bradley Cooper. And look at him now!

For those of you returning from long weekend -- the blog was on regular schedule yesterday so please scroll down to get caught up. LifeStyle has also been updated with collections from London Fashion Week.

Yours in gossip,
