Julie Christie wears her own clothes

Blog_christyA little rant against tabloids, a little tribute (again) to Sarah Polley and other women in the business -- notably, Tamara Jenkins' script for "The Savages."

Julie Christie is grace and graciousness personified -- even in the face of this double whammy: some dork asked her how she felt, and then offered to carry that oh-so-heavy statue to the after party -- where, we can all assume, he wasn't invited. We'd like to think that if there's any justice in the world there's dork-finding GPS on that lightning outside.

Christie handled it with aplomb, and even refused to give the designer name of her outfit (it was her own, she said), with a simple yet poignant, "I don't buy into the walking advertisement thing."

A fitting end to the night, we'd say.

Oscar Contenders

  • So "The Dark Knight" didn't make it into the final five after all, never mind that critical and popular support. Let's just call the comic-inspired mega-hit "The Biggest Snubee."

    Here are the best picture contenders in a race that, two weeks away from the Oscars, seems to be a foregone conclusion ("Slumdog") unless there's a come-from-behind possibility ("The Reader" anyone?)

    "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," with Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett; the politically timely "Milk;" rags-to-riches fairy tale, "Slumdog Millionaire," Holocaust best-seller-based drama "The Reader," and Watergate-era biopic "Frost/Nixon."

    Could "Button" and "Slumdog" split the vote, allowing another film to take the prize? Doesn't seem likely. After having clung to "Button" for months as what we thought would be the Academy voters' top vhoice, our money's now on "Slumdog." Momentum can't be ignored.

    Watch this blog for updates, ephemera and all manner of postulating.

  • Mmmmm, chocolate Oscar. Not every star will walk away from the 81st annual Academy Awards with a trophy, but if they hit the high-profile Governor's Ball they can have pastry chef Sherry Yard's gold-dusted candy version. Also on the menu from celeb chef Wolfgang Puck is tuna tartare in sesame miso cones, chopped Chino Farms vegetable salad with ginger soy vinaigrette, Maine lobster and caviar. Serve it up!
