Dear Gossips,

TIFF's artistic director, Cameron Bailey, had a great weekend. So far, almost all the "possible contenders" have delivered, the most notable being Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave, which now seems like a straight up lock for a Best Picture Oscar nomination, and could go all the way.

Tonight, however, the focus moves to August: Osage County and Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts. Will it live up to the hype and expectation?

As for TIFF gossip, well, I have some stories. Will roll them out later today. The site was updated over the weekend with galleries from TIFF and New York Fashion Week. Please check LifeStyle to get caught up.

Oh and I spoke briefly with Tim Riggins last night. Details coming! But let’s begin with Idris Elba because there never was a finer man. Even Dylan, who was shooting my interview with him, was super-crushing. Also, yes, I admit, I am totally showing off my hair. TIFF time is braid time! For those of you who’ve been asking after seeing my photos on Twitter, the dress I’m wearing is Thakoon. You can check it out here.

Yours in gossip,
