If history is any indication, Cate Blanchett can expect an Oscar nomination for her leading role in Woody Allen's new movie Blue Jasmine — and those four reasons are named Penélope Cruz, Dianne Wiest, Diane Keaton, and Mira Sorvino! We're looking back at Woody's winning habit of getting Oscar gold for his leading ladies.
So you've had a look at the best Oscars frocks but how about the worst? Unfortunately, there are quite a few A-list celebs who made the cut ahead of Monday's 2012 Academy Awards ceremony. Best-dressed stars Hilary Swank and Gwyneth Paltrow score a double whammy for appearing on both best and worst lists! Prepare yourselves as I introduce you to swans, suits and the odd toilet-roll holder. Drumroll please!

Sometimes all it takes is one actor to get you to the cinema to see a movie, and the ever-adorable and talented Rachel McAdams was enough to draw my attention to Morning Glory. I'll tell you right off the bat that McAdams is the best part of the film. Unfortunately that's not saying much, as she and the rest of the stellar cast are wasted on a film that's trying way too hard to be both funny and touching, and it only moderately succeeds at either goal.
McAdams stars as Becky, a 28-year-old producer for a morning news program in New Jersey. Overworked and underpaid, Becky finds herself in a pickle when she thinks she's about to get a major promotion but is fired instead. Packing ambition, an undying love for the news, and the brightest eyes you've ever seen, she heads to New York. Becky's tenacity lands her a job at DayBreak, an ailing morning news program with abysmal ratings, catty anchors and a revolving door of executive producers. Sounds like a great predictable-but-fun popcorn flick, right? To find out why it doesn't make the cut, just read more.
The gorgeous Rachel McAdams, leading lady of this week's rom-com release Morning Glory, sat down with Pop US to discuss awkward (and painful!) love scenes, working with Diane Keaton, and what she took away from filming the movie. Don't forget to watch our interviews with her co-stars Harrison Ford, Jeff Goldblum and Patrick Wilson.
Whether you’re already back at work or still enjoying your holidays, we’ve got a treat to kick start the new year: a chance for you to see Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton in the new comedy Morning Glory (out tomorrow) for free!
Rachel stars as a hard-working TV producer who stumbles across a job at the low-rated morning news show DayBreak. In a bid to spice things up and hopefully improve ratings she brings in legendary-but-crotchety TV anchor Mike Pomeroy (Ford) to sit alongside co-host Colleen Peck (Keaton).
We’re giving away five double passes and to be in the running to score one all you have to do is tell us in the comments section who your all-time favourite morning show host is. Do you think Kerri-Anne is the queen of morning TV or do you prefer Kochie’s dad jokes?

THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED.
Morning Glory is out in cinemas this Thursday, so in the lead up to its release we're bringing you interviews with the cast. First up, Jeff Goldblum reveals his reasons for joining the Morning Glory cast and tells us what it's like to be in charge on camera. Stay tuned for our interviews with Harrison Ford, Patrick Wilson and leading lady Rachel McAdams!
Rachel McAdams was the centre of attention last night at the NYC premiere of Morning Glory. She and co-stars Patrick Wilson, Harrison Ford and Jeff Goldblum were on the black carpet after a long weekend of doing press at their junket—Pop US with the four actors on Saturday, so stay tuned for video later this week! Rachel also chatted yesterday before heading into the screening, mentioning how awesome it was to reunite with Diane Keaton following their work together in The Family Stone. Their current movie is all about Rachel's character, Becky Fuller, as she figures out her work and life balance, and she said the struggle hit close to home. Rachel fit in a few days of press during a break from working on her new Terrence Malick project in Oklahoma with Ben Affleck. Patrick and Jeff, meanwhile, stopped to share about Rachel's great comedic acting in their film.
It’s no secret we here at Sugar HQ have a massive girl crush on Rachel McAdams. She one of the most talented and watchable actresses out there right now. Her new movie, Morning Glory, looks awesome. It’s reminiscent of a modern Working Girl with Rachel playing an ambitious young producer trying to re-vamp a breakfast TV show. Harrison Ford plays a washed-up former anchor man who spars with his on-air nemesis, Diane Keaton. What else could you possibly add to this dream team cast? The screenwriter of The Devil Wears Prada, the director of Notting Hill, and yes, JJ Abrams. I'll stop with all the details, though, so you can watch the trailer, see a bigger version of the poster and tell me what you think when you read more.
