Tom Shone "acting as a special effect" interesting piece.
The Playlist unveils the teaser poster for Pedro Almodovar's latest, The Skin That I Inhabit. Ewwww. I'm so scared to see this movie. But I shall.

In Contention checks out Vanessa Redgrave and Ralph Fiennes in the modern dress film version of Coriolanus, directing by Fiennes himself. How about that?
The Carpetbagger interviews The Social Network's invisible man Josh Pence, the other half of the Winklevii
The Wrap
Lady Gaga on Jay Leno. You know... one thing I have to hand to Lady Gaga, the generosity and sentimentality she exudes in song and message doesn't seem faked at all. The way she handles Madonna questions in particular with respect is great. Because Madonna is the queen. Infinity.

Finally, the NY Times reports on Judi Dench's new book "and furthermore." The title implies that there is a previous book and we ought to read it since she's prepping a post script, addendum or some such in book form.

Complete the Sentence
If you were speaking with Dame Judi Dench what would follow your "and furthermore" with? "and furthermore ___________________"

Do tell her (and us) in the comments.

...and furthermore, how do you feel about getting an Oscar for seven minutes of looking stern when you've done so much more with your career?

I'd start: I understand you got your Oscar because you're a legend and one of the great character actresses, but I don't understand why you got it for such a small part and furthermore, Julianne Moore should have your statue.

GREAT poster. What is the new Almodovar about?

Personally, I think that instead of the Kevin Bacon game, it should be Six Degrees of an Oscar Snub.

Helen Hunt took the Oscar that Should have gone to Judi Dench
Judi Dench took the Oscar that Should have gone to Kathy Bates
Kathy Bates took the Oscar that Should have gone to Anjelica Huston
Anjelica Huston took the Oscar that Should have gone to Oprah Winfrey

Helen Hunt owes Oprah Winfrey an Oscar.

"And furthermore, I did The Chronicles of Riddick on a dare. And now you know why Tony ended up in The Rite -- he may be Welsh, but he doesn't welsh on a bet. And he makes a lot of them."

“and further more like Gwyneth latter that evening Harvey Weinstein bought my statuette.”

John T -- i love your chain of theft. BUT it was actually Helena Bonham Carter that deserved Hunt's Oscar, not Dench.

Timothy my understanding is its about a plastic surgeon who is out for revenge. supposedly has horror elements.

...and furthermore, what happened to your leading roles? Demand them back! And, you know, stay healthy for a long time.

"and furthermore, Judy, you scared the sh*t out of me in 'Notes on a Scandal."

PS: My computer suddenly hates TFE! The fonts are looking funny, and loading and scrolling are taking for-ev-er. HELP!
