Dear Gossips,

All I want to do right now is see movies and read books. Every day this weekend I was at the movies. It totally could have been two movies a day. Or three. But thereΓÇÖs laundry to be done and dogs to be walked and maturity to maintain. Still... itΓÇÖs something about this time of year, from US Thanksgiving to Christmas - I want to see it all. I saw My Week With Marilyn. The film, it was ok. Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe? Magnificent. ItΓÇÖs crazy, CRAZY, how good she is. There is no way she wonΓÇÖt be nominated for an Oscar. Maybe this why going to the movies is so enticing right now. Because it feels like, a lot more of it at least, actually counts for something.

After a slow pre-holiday week, weΓÇÖve now a final push, about 18 days or so, before they retreat again for Christmas. The first major awards announcement will come from the National Board of Review this Thursday, December 1st. The criticsΓÇÖ boards will follow, announcing their selections and nominations. Then itΓÇÖs the Globes with their (likely long and ridiculous) list on December 15. But at least then weΓÇÖll know  what that carpet will be like in January. Might even be the best carpet weΓÇÖve had in years. In other words, gossip should be intense to close out 2011. And, yes, Brange will emerge - how could we close it out without them?

So weΓÇÖre in for a heavy column today. Please refresh often. And remember to check LifeStyle for all of SashaΓÇÖs celebrity fashion finds you may have missed last week, and new posts on Penelope CruzΓÇÖs hair, Rachel WeiszΓÇÖs winter coat, and more.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
