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.

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.

...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.
