A quick aside before we get to Michelle Yeoh and Gemma Chan’s red carpet looks – remember all that business about fighting over presenters and the Academy telling people that if they presented at any other award shows, they wouldn’t be able to come to the Oscars? One of those people was supposed to be Margot Robbie Full Story

Crazy Rich Asians was not nominated for Oscar last week so the SAGs was the last awards season stop for the cast, at least until the sequel comes out. Which won’t be for a while since director Jon M Chu is working with Lin-Manual Miranda on the film adaptation of In the Heights and that doesn’t go into production until later this year. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

My mother came back from Asia recently with a gift for me, a gorgeous jade bangle. We Chinese are big on jade bangles. You often see them on babies. I was wearing a jade bangle around my fat wrist in my first baby portraits.  Read Full Intro

As Sandra Oh pointed out, this year’s Golden Globes – while still overwhelmingly Caucasian – had exponentially more Asian representation than ever before, due in part to the cast of Crazy Rich Asians, who really didn’t get enough play, but came out hard in the fashion game nonetheless. Full Story

Crazy Rich Asians is going to the Golden Globes. It will not win any Golden Globes. But they’ll be at the party, at one of the most watched award shows, and the first major award show of the year, right after the New Year. This is visibility. And visibility is important. So, sure, even though the comedy/musical category at the Globes was a lot more wide open because films like A Star is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody decided to submit in drama for strategic reasons, perhaps not wanting to go up against the likely Comedy/Musical winner, Mary Poppins Returns, and because “dramatic films” are typically better positioned for the big prize, the Oscars, the beneficiaries of that play in previous years may not have been a film that stars people of colour, a rom-com featuring an all-Asian cast. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The National Board of Review announced its award winners yesterday. NBR isn’t always that great of an Oscar predictor; last year their Best Film was The Post, Best Actor and Best Actress were Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, Willem Dafoe and Laurie Metcalf won for supporting …AND they left out The Shape of Water and Three Billboards entirely.  Read Full Intro

There aren’t usually this many Asians at Oscar events. Because there aren’t usually all-Asian casts in Hollywood. Crazy Rich Asians came out in August. It’s one of the most successful movies of the year. It does actually have an outside shot at a couple of nominations, including Best Picture. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Hollywood Film Awards happened last night and, as I always say about the Hollywood Film Awards, they’re about as prestigious as the MTV Movie Awards, which is to say not all that prestigious, and the recipients are chosen ahead of time, and determined in cooperation with the film studios (with a guarantee of who will show up), but they do tell us something about what award season campaigning will look like, and who the players might be.  Read Full Intro

If you weren’t already going into Crazy Rich Asians obsessed with Michelle Yeoh, you will definitely be leaving the movie obsessed with Michelle Yeoh. She is a legend. And for many, many years, she was one of the few, if not only, Asian women repping the side internationally. I asked her in our interview a couple of a weeks ago what it’s been like through this process, watching a new generation stepping through the door that she’s been holding open, sometimes all by herself. Full Story
