[Blind Gossip] This man lost at the Oscars yesterday. No shame in it, as his nomination was well-deserved. However, he did tell a few people later on that he considers it his own fault that he didn’t win.

[Mid Day] This is a perfect love triangle! Buzz is that a relatively new actor (Actor 1) has managed to woo the former flame of another actor (Actor 2), incidentally launched by the same production house as the former.
The two, who are even scheduled to work together in a film, are said to hate the sight of each other.
At a recent award ceremony both of them ignored each other completely and did not even bother to exchange pleasantries. The bone of contention is obviously the leggy lass actress who » Continued
[Blind Gossip] The 85th Academy Awards will be broadcast this Sunday, February 24 at 4:00 pm PST on ABC.
For those of you who are not familiar with the Academy Awards voting process, here is a very brief description of how it works:
Each member of the Academy (The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences) belongs to one of 15 “branches” (e.g. the Directors branch). The members of each “branch” make nominations only within their branch (e.g. Directors nominate other Directors for “Best Director”). Then, once the nominees are selected by each branch, the entire membership votes for the winner.
You might think that if an Academy Member votes for a film, that they have actually seen the film. You might think that they select a Best Actress based on who they think gave the best performance that year. You might think that they can only vote for one film for Best Picture.
If you think those things, you would be wrong. This is Hollywood, people! Things don’t work in such a straightforward way.
With that in mind, here is an interesting » Continued
[New York Magazine] BG Note: This interesting story by writer Kate Van Syckle is about one of the producers who is nominated for an Academy Award this year.
Watching major sporting events, I always wonder what happens to the losers’ hats. By the end of the Super Bowl, the winning coach is covered in ice, his quarterback is grinning in a “World Champions” cap, and somewhere, I imagine, a team of waterboys are scrambling to hide the unused hats designed in case the other guys won.
I imagine something similar happens to famous people’s exes, the woman next to the man — until she wasn’t. And somewhere, languishing in a closet full of unknown hats, there’s a pile of women discarded by ambitious men. (And vice versa.) They’re the unknown Mia Farrows, Jennifer Anistons, and Taylor Swift dumpees. But because Taylor Swift won’t write a song about them, they will simply be forgotten. » Continued
[Blind Gossip] Even though they have been married for years, you don’t see this pretty actress together with her husband and kids very often. In fact, you could probably only need one hand to count the number of family photos out there that include the whole family – husband and wife and child/ren. She claims it is because she likes to keep her private life separate from her professional life (even though he is in the business, too).
Actually, that is not the whole story. The truth is that » Continued
[E Online] Thandie Newton is opening up about a “horrific” casting incident she experienced as an up-and-coming actress.
The Good Deeds star revealed that she was sexually exploited by a director when she went to a second audition, a screen test, for a project at the age of 18.
“The director asked me to sit with my legs apart, and » Continued
[Blind Gossip] This talented actor manages to be both handsome and a little creepy at the same time. That mix has worked well for him in several of his most famous roles. In fact, he played the antagonist in one of the highest-grossing movies of all time.
Although he was the love interest in that movie, he has always been very quiet about his personal life. He’s been married and divorced, but you rarely hear about him dating. That may change soon.

[Village Voice] Which movie star who was recently on Broadway is such a challenging diva that when an assistant of hers quit after 10 days, she got a call from another former assistant saying “Congratulations!”?
[Village Voice] Which comic film star is known to be narcissistic, insecure, needy, and demanding (though what he really should be demanding is a dietitian and a trainer)?

[Blind Gossip] This esteemed, over-40 American film actor was playing a game of tennis with a friend when they noticed a couple of young men doing the same on the next court over. The four men wound up playing doubles together, and the actor suggested that they all get together for dinner.
The actor took them to a very fancy restaurant that night and they all enjoyed dining on fine food and drinking great wine and talking about sports and women.
The next day, the actor called up one of the young men and asked » Continued
[Blind Gossip] This slim and pretty actress, who is best known for films, recently had a rough retail experience.
She was shopping with a friend in a high end store in Los Angeles after the holidays. She picked out several beautiful (and very expensive items) and waited for the salesperson to ring her up.

[Blind Gossip] This busy actress has done over 20 films and has several in production, but she is best known for a TV role she played. Other than that, she is hard to describe. She is either married or divorced, she is gay or straight, and she is a blonde, brunette, or redhead. She has been rather secretive about her personal life, so it is hard to know what the truth is.
One thing is for sure: she was kicked off a plane for acting like » Continued
