Here’s another party held to celebrate this weekend’s 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Last night, W Magazine threw a party to celebrates the Best Performances Portfolio and the Golden Globes with the help of co-sponsors Audi and Moet & Chandon. The star-studded party, which also included guests like Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel, and Michelle Monaghan, was held at the ultra-exclusive Chateau Marmont hotel in West Hollywood.
Jordan Duffy looked great, but what’s up with that thing tied around Hailee Steinfeld’s legs? Why didn’t she just wear a simple evening gown? And, apologies in advance for posting Millie Bobby Brown. We found out later that she’s ONLY 12!! What the hell is a 12 year old doing at an evening party at the Chateau Marmont. It’s no wonder these kids get involved with drug & alcohol abuse so early in life.

The star-studded 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards (visit the official website) were held at the The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica last night and, believe it or not, but I actually watched a few minutes of it. Many people believe that the CCA’s are usually an excellent predictor the upcoming award season leading up to academy awards in February, so we’ll see how last night’s winners hold up as the weeks go by. Having said that, a few more heavy-hitting Oscar favorites will release over the next couple weeks, so those names will get added to the nominations list.
Let’s review the big winners from last night:
Best Picture: “La La Land”
Best Director: Damien Chazelle – “La La Land”
Best Actor: Casey Affleck – “Manchester by the Sea as Lee Chandler”
Best Actress: Natalie Portman – “Jackie as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis”

And our final post of the day comes from Friday’s Billboard Women In Music 2016 event held in NYC. A number of pretty faces, including a few famous ones, took time out of their busy schedules to show face at the event. For an endless stream of photos, videos and stories from the star-studded affair, head to Billboard.com.
As you already know, The 2016 American Music Awards held at The Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles. Jay Pharoah and Gigi Hadid co-hosted the show where Drake had the most nominations with 12. Sting was also honored with an Award of Merit. Ariana Grande won Artist of the Year, Selena Gomez won Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist while Justin Beiber won Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist. Check out the full list of winners.
As you guys know, Hollywood execs have been trying real hard for years to give Hailee Steinfeld a proper launch pad to super stardom, but in recent years the 19-year-old actress has suffered a number of painful performances at the the box-office. Fortunately for Hailee, she’s still very young, so when you have the Hollywood bigwigs repeatedly betting on you, I think it’s only a matter of time until Hailee finds the right script.
As for Hailee’s latest project, “The Edge of Seventeen” is a new coming-of-age comedy co-starring Blake Jenner, Woody Harrelson and Kyra Sedgwick. Here’s more info about the film:
The life of high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld) is already awkward when her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson). Nadine now feels more alone than ever, until the unexpected friendship with an awkward thoughtful boy (Hayden Szeto) gives her a glimmer of hope that things might not be so terrible after all. The film also stars Kyra Sedgwick as Nadine’s well-meaning but ineffective mother, and Woody Harrelson as Nadine’s history teacher, mentor and reluctant sounding board.[Source]
Hailee Steinfeld attended The Edge Of Seventeen Photo Call held at The Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. Hailee stars as Nadine Byrd in the film directed and written by Kelly Fremon Craig. The film stars Hailee, Haley Lu Richardson, Hayden Szeto, Blake Jenner, Woody Harrelson and Kyra Sedgwick. Look for “The Edge of Seventeen” in theaters on November 18.
Hailee Steinfeld is only 19, but she’s been around Hollywood for quite a number of years. Gods of Hollywood are trying really hard to hit a home run with Hailee, but I think they’ve struck out for the most part. Judging by early buzz, it appears Hailee will have some luck with her latest film “The Edge of Seventeen,” which hits theaters next month. The film also stars Woody Harrelson and Kyra Sedgwick. Hailee is currently making the promotional stops—and apparently no stop is small enough! The young actress made an appearance on Radio Station Y-100 yesterday in Fort Lauderdale, of all places.

Directly above are photos of the models & celebs who visited the eTalk lounge backstage at the Much Music Video Awards, which went down last night in Toronto. And below are photos of a few standouts from the red carpet arrivals ahead of the awards shows.
The show featured a number of performances including Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Nick Jonas, Alessia Cara, Tegan and Sara, Hailee Steinfeld with Shawn Hook, Fifth Harmony, Desiigner, Hedley, James Bay, July Talk. Wait, since when Hailee Steinfeld start doing music?! The powers-that-be are really doing their best to make this girl famous, but it doesn’t seem to be working, unfortunately.

This will pretty much complete our slow coverage of the MET Costume Institute Gala. I’m sure we missed a lot of gems, so we’ll run through various sets once again later this evening and have a final post. The glamorous gala comes only once a year, so it’s worth spending a little extra time on it.
With respect to the ladies in this post, I have to say that Taylor Swift was a major disappointment. I can’t tell if she was playing it really safe or if she was shooting for a more mature look? Selena should’ve just stayed home because her dress looked like something you could buy at Macy’s. Alicia Vikander proved that she’ll look cute & sexy in anything, while Demi Lovato was wrapped a gilded frame around herself. And finally, Emma Watson could do much better considering her daring looks on the red carpet.
Wait, are those see-thru or is that just an optical illusion? I feel like she paired the sheer pants with nude undies—or at least we hope that’s the case. Wow, the powers that be are really trying to pimp Hailee Steinfeld hard to the masses and I’m not sure it’s working too well. I guess we’ll see how her upcoming movies do at the box-office.
Anyway, these were snapped earlier today at the star-studded event by STX Entertainment as part of CinemaCon at The Colosseum of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
