I know, I know, the People’s Choice Awards were just the night before! But settle down, kids, because the Critics’ Choice Awards actually kind of matter, and besides, it’s awards season, so buck up. The Golden Globes are this Sunday, you know. It’s time to get serious.
And you guys, things did get serious last night. Seriously gorgeous. Both my girls, Emma Stone and Evan Rachel Wood, were there, and they both killed it. Take a look above to see Emma looking dazzling, and below to see Evan looking stunning. I actually think I like Evan’s dress a little better. What about you guys?

What do you guys think? Personally, I’m kind of bummed that We Need to Talk About Kevin didn’t win anything (both Tilda Swinton and Ezra Miller were up for acting awards) because I thought it was amazing, but I’m really glad that “Life’s a Happy Song” from The Muppets got some recognition. Did you guys see The Muppets? It’s probably going to be one of my favorite movies ever. Also, I clearly need to see The Artist, huh?
Any additional thoughts?

You guys, I almost totally forgot! The Entertainment Lawyer who scribes Crazy Days and Nights is finally “naming names,” as is his hallowed New Year’s Day tradition.
Emily hit on some of the year’s best, most salacious scandals, but you guys! THERE IS SO MUCH MORE.

Can we get into musical theatre for a minute, friends? Because that Les Mis movie is happening, and it’s happening fast. The release date is December 7th, 2012, and so far the cast includes Hugh Jackman as Val Jean, Russell Crowe as Javert, and Anne Hathaway as Fantine. Things are looking pretty good so far, but who will play the beloved Eponine?
Taylor Swift, Lea Michele, Scarlett Johansson and Evan Rachel Wood are all in the running for the highly coveted role of Eponine in Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper’s big-screen version of “Les Misérables,” sources tell us. A source close to the film confirmed that the four actors have all auditioned for the role. Another said that Michele “knocked it out of the park” when the “Glee” star — who played Young Cosette in the Broadway show — recently performed for the “King’s Speech” director. But it will be a tough choice because each star has her own magic ingredient for the musical based on Victor Hugo’s novel. “Scarlett brings acting ability, and she can really sing,” said the source. “Evan Rachel Wood brings her indie cred.” And casting Swift would mark a major move over to Hollywood films for the pop star.
You know, as much as I dislike the girl, Lea Michele is clearly the way to go here. Scarlett’s too old and just not right for the role, and you know I adore Evan Rachel Wood, and she’s definitely a strong second choice, but I’m just not feeling this for her. As for Taylor … please don’t make me explain why Taylor Swift would be a reprehensible casting choice.
Who would you pick to play Eponine?

Many times throughout the day, I find myself drifting off. Whatever I was thinking of or trying to focus on just slips away, and the remarkable beauty and effortless grace of Evan Rachel Wood consumes my mind, much like that awful “E.T.” song by Katy Perry or the case of whether or not Courtney Stodden has implants or “hey, I wonder what Kanye is thinking about right now?” It’s powerful, you guys, and I don’t think it’s going to go away any time soon.
But what about you, friends? Do you think Evan’s flapper ensemble is as precious as I do, or are you over it already?

Do I really need to say anything else here? Is there any doubt that I think Evan Rachel Wood is gorgeous and glorious and perfect? Could any one of you honestly look at these pictures and honestly think that I’m not flailing with love and appreciation?
Do any of you agree with me? Now, that’s the question.

What do you think: does Evan do a good job covering His Majesty Justin Bieber? Isn’t she a perfect little dollop of sunshine and loveliness? Do you love her yet, too?
