Daily Blind Item — Follow Their Lead

reese_witherspoon_nicole_kidman_getty880655274

You might have noticed that award season was a little different this year. Instead of the focus on the films, shows and the performances, the centre of attention was firmly on the #MeToo movement, industry sexism and female empowerment.

Hollywood might be combating sexism, but it definitely isn’t stopping calculation any time soon.

I’m told many public relations firms and entertainment industry agents were said to admire the way Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon handled the situation and felt that the way they delivered their award speeches was the perfect balance of graceful and meaningful without ever falling into preachy or entitled territory.

Apparently nominated clients were instructed to “follow Nicole and Reese’s lead” and the vast majority listened with the exception of this one A list actress, who may or may not have won the big one.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is the one that didn’t listen?

Who are ones that did?

 

 

Daily Blind Item — Oscar Meltdown

Tradition was broken last night at the Academy Awards when Casey Affleck declined to present the Best Actress category and was replaced by the female duo of Oscar-winners, Jennifer Lawrence and Jodie Foster.

One A list actor was furious about change, lamenting Hollywood and the Academy for pressuring Casey to stand down and trying to present a “feminist agenda”.

‘Now they’re all fucking feminist heros,’ a source quotes the actor as saying. ‘They were the fucking people that knew about that bastard [Weinstein] and still supported him’

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our angry actor?

Daily Blind Item — No Filming

Hugh Jackman became a huge meme after the Golden Globes on Sunday when his hilariously vexed reaction to James Franco beating him out for the award went viral.

This A list actor didn’t up attending in the end, but you wouldn’t have caught him in the same position because our very high-up source tells us he made a special request of the producers of the show.

‘Please don’t go to [name omitted] for reaction shots,’ his people informed them, worried that his reactions to a speech, a joke etc. might show him in a bad light.

It’s finally happened, lifers. We’ve found the one actor that doesn’t want to be filmed!

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our actor?

 

 

Daily Blind Item — No Nom For You

You might not remember this, but after Nicole Kidman starred as Grace Kelly in Grace of Monaco, there was an incredible amount of buzz about Kidman’s performance and the Weinstein Company even purchased the distribution rights based off of a short clip.

This movie has similar buzz for the lead’s performance, but insiders are telling us that we should be expecting a Grace of Monaco and not a Capote in this movie.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our lead?

What is the movie?

Daily Blind Item — Unexpected Nom

Controversy is breaking out amongst Emmy members over an unexpected nomination many are calling undeserved.

‘It makes us look like a joke,’ one member shares exclusively to us.

Another worldly member elucidates, ‘This is why the Emmys get accused of being rigged.’

So, tell me, Gossipers:

What is our unexpected nomination?
