Celebrity-obsessed CHARISMA TAUPE is in my book THE HOLLYWOOD EFFECT. She recognizes the book’s main character, Valerie, from the movie she’d starred in and anoints herself as Valerie’s new best friend.
I absolutely love this time of year! There’s a celebrity award show almost every weekend, and everyone who was big in the past year comes to town looking so fabulous! I think I spend more time in Hollywood these months than in my own house—though sleeping in my car does get uncomfortable. But it’s all worth it when I catch a glimpse of a star.
Now to the good stuff. Oscar noms just came out and here’s who should win: The Blind Side for best picture, Jason Reitman for directing Up in the Air, Colin Firth for leading actor in A Single Man (his accent is so sexy, though Clooney would be good, too), Sandra Bullock for leading actress in The Blind Side, Matt Damon for supporting actor in Invictus, and Anna Kendrick for supporting actress in Up in the Air.
The other awards aren’t that important. I mean, who really cares who wrote the movies or made the sound effects? It’s the actors and the directors who give the movie life! If they’d get rid of all those stupid categories then they wouldn’t have to cut off the acceptance speeches for the awards we really care about.
I can’t wait to see what everyone wears. Seeing all the celebrities gathered in one place looking glamorous is really what these award shows are all about. By the way, my favorite Golden Globes outfit was Diane Kruger’s. I wish I had a dress like that—I’d wear it every day!
I can hardly wait for March 7 to come, but I’ll be keeping busy seeing all the nominated movies again—at least the good ones. And I’ll be watching the sidewalks and boutiques for stars!
