"My favorite movie about the theater is ALL ABOUT EVE, but then again that movie is my favorite movie about everything about movies and love and lust and life itself." - Jay

"TOPSY-TURVY perfectly captures the feeling of imminent failure that you get when you're in rehearsals." - Peggy

Nominee Luncheon: The Menu. The Leo.

This is what your favorite movie stars are nibbling on, during the speeches and the schmoozing...


You're serving Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep fish again?!? Who do you suppose is eating what?

I imagine a lot of them are on special diets and not eating at all and between Michael Fassbender, Barkhad Abdi, Sally Hawkins, and McConaughey & Leto are these the skinniest acting shortlists of all time? So many beanpoles. Who has the biggest appetite: June Squibb? David O. Russell? Barkhad Abdi (I just like typing his name)?

I know I'm not supposed to make fun of typos given that this blog is often typed as fast and as recklessly as my fingers will allow but I am desperate to try anything "Stir fired" because it sounds amazing.

Leo says 'hi'

Dang, I would have to eat before going there. Where's the pizza? The fried chicken? There's no pigs' feet or mac and cheese? I just can't.

Fassbender and Hawkins didn't go. Cooper seems to be intentionally beefing up for a part, so he probably ate the most. Or Jonah Hill? I would imagine that most Hollywood luncheons/dinners are "light" compared to a traditional meal.

Kate... well, i wasn't speaking *literally* -- but they actuallly do leave a lot of food on those plates for people to eat but people usually just graze.

If you look this photo of Leo for more tha 30 seconds, you'll realize that he is starting to look like Scorsese. Forget the eye color and see the angles of his face and the bones.

cal: So Scorsese, if he works fast, could justify using him in an auto-bio of his Raging Bull days?

Leo's pretty cute :)

Leo has really played the campaign circuit kind of perfectly this season. He's been charming at every stop, and somehow has managed to be both zealously earnest and humbly unassuming in getting out there, speaking about the movie, and marching toward Oscar night. I said the morning after the Globes that if DiCaprio made the cut, he'd probably take the Oscar; I have no reason to think otherwise. He's too connected and the perception that he's waited too long for this moment should tilt it in his favor.

It's worth noting that DiCaprio and McConaughey have not yet gone head-to-head in a major/televised award show, and because of the McConaughey BAFTA omission they won't until Oscar night. So even if Ejiofor takes the BAFTA, DiCaprio is still probably the not-so-secret top challenger.

There's something creepy about Leo's picture. He looks somewhat devilish, like he's asking me if I wish to sign a contract with him. It's a shame he has that squeaky voice, if he had a deeper/baritone voice he'd make a nice Mephistopheles!

The comments on Abdi's thinness are especially amusing because I know people who know people who tried out for his part (they cast it in Minneapolis). My co-worker told me he was told not to bother auditioning because he is muscular and they were specifically looking for emaciated-looking Somali men. See, I'm only ten degrees away from the Oscars this year!

Carmen: Well, maybe if he was the kind of devil who wanted a marriage instead of a soul. Seriously, though, One More Day's ending SUCKS.
