Today's Blind Items

Most of the time an Academy Award nominee tells a really funny story about being awakened at 530am by their agent or manager telling them the good news that they have been nominated. This year, one of the nominees for best actor/best actress found out while they were still in the middle of an all night bender with someone who is not their significant other. After a night of epic partying, this actor/actress was actually in the middle of having sex with a stranger they picked up earlier in the night when their phone began blowing up with the news. This one will shock you with who it is.

Melissa McCarthy or Meryl Streep.

heehee

sherri dee said...

Clooney!

Erin said...

My first thought was George Clooney as well.

Cathy said...

But if Enty is saying it would shock us, I really don't think it would be Clooney.

Cheryl said...

That wild woman Glenn Close! Would you REALLY be shocked if it was Clooney?

Heather Lillywhite said...

Gary Oldman

Vicki Cupper said...

Kate Winslet. Was she nominated?

mbagrrrl said...

It would really shock me if this was Viola Davis, but I think it's Oldman or Pitt.

spacecowboy78 said...

Brad Pitt

Christiane said...

Rooney Mara or Demian Bichir? Heehee. Dunno actually.

Cathy said...

Hoping it's not the kid from Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close :)

Vicki Cupper said...

Gary Oldman or Michelle Williams.

Maybe with each other.

Beth said...

Brad Pitt

Cheryl said...

I love Gary Oldman on the screen but I know nothing about his personal life so I don't know if it would be shocking or not. Brad Pitt would be shocking because this would run against his public image and he is not considered the wild member of Team Brangelina.

MISCH said...

It's not a secret that neither Brad or Angie are monogamous ..
But who this is clueless...

Sadie said...

Given there are only 10 people to choose from, we should get this one easy!

nolachickee said...

I'm going with Glenn or Meryl! None of the guys would shock me.

Basil said...

Is Kate Winslet nominated again? That would shock me.

lzahart said...

Hmmm.... Clooney DEF not shocking. I love Demian but I don't think enough people know him to be shocked by what he does or doesn't do. Pitt would be shocking. Oldman is kind of a wierd guy so I'm not sure it would be that shocking. And I don't know enough about the Artist guy to be shocked... so I'm thinking of all the guys, it could only be Mr. Jolie.

Of the gals.... only Viola Davis or Meryl Streep would be truly shocking. Maybe Glenn Close would be kind of shocking. Rooney and Michelle- this would not shock me. I know lots of people might be shocked by Michelle bc of all the stuff she has said about her reasons for the split w Heath being drug related but.... I think she will say anything to better position herself for roles/awards/etc, and it is just spin not necessarily the truth. Not to take anything away from her as a single mom but still it's hard to know what's real when it comes to her.

Kimberly said...

Melissa Mccarthy and george clooney

Vicki Cupper said...

It can't be Gary Oldman. He was making my bed shake that night.

Oh wait, that was just a dream. Damn.

selenakyle said...

The only true shockers for me would be Meryl or Viola.

Cathy said...

What about Bérénice Bejo? That would be shocking, since her husband directed the movie she was nominated for.

Bnl1016 said...

Ok, so for the guys: Demián Bichir, George Clooney, Jean Dujardin, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt

Neither Clooney, Oldman or Pitt would shock me. I don't know that many people know enough about Bichir or Dujardin to be shocked or not.

The girls: Glenn Close, Viola Davis, Rooney Mara, Meryl Streep, Michelle Williams

Mara and Williams would not shock me in the least.

So its gotta be Close, Davis or Streep in my eyes. For some reason my gut says Close.

Ice Angel said...

Actor in a Leading Role:
Demián Bichir-never heard of him George Clooney-not shocking
Jean Dujardin-never hear of him Gary Oldman-not shocking
Brad Pitt-not shocking
Actress in a Leading Role:
Glenn Close-pretty shocking, but not considering her roles
Viola Davis-never heard of her
Rooney Mara-not all that shocking and does she even have a significant other?
Meryl Streep-TOTALLY SHOCKING!!Michelle Williams-Totally shocking considering the prim and proper package she delivers, but again-no significant other

Cathy said...

@Bnl - the blind doesn't specify it's lead actor/actress - it could be supporting.

Ice Angel said...

@Cathy-it does say BestActor/Best Actress...would that assume lead? Not quite sure.

Comma Chaser said...

Definitely Max von Sydow, with the "someone" being Death.

Cathy said...

I'd think that leaves it open to Best Lead Actor/Actress or Best Supporting Actor/Actress.

crila16 said...

It's best actor/actress...not supporting.

Why would anyone be shocked if it were Clooney? I don't understand, he's not married and only just started dating his new beard. I'm sure he sleep with lots of guys and Stacey is well aware. Brad Pitt wouldn't even be a shock. I'm sure he's sleeping with lots of other women behind Angie's back.

Meryl Streep or Glenn Close...now that would be a shock to me.

RenoBlondee said...

Michelle doesn't have a significant other does she? That leaves her out.
I'd say Brad would be most shocking. Or Meryl.

Ice Angel said...

OK...now I know who Viola Davis is-she attended Julliard and called it a "hot mess." She is classically trained and has done a lot of Broadway. She also said that she and her husband spent the weekend at George Clooney's Lake Como estate. They just adopted a little girl last year. I hope it's not her. But it would be shocking.

Ice Angel said...

If it includes the supportiing category, it is too hard and I am too lazy, so I give up! LOL!

Cathy said...

Why are you so sure, Crila? The blind makes no reference to them being nominated for a leading role.

Erin said...

I'm thinking we could rule out people who are married since Enty says "significant other." I might be wrong about that, but it is my assumption. Assuming it's only best & not supporting we have:

Demián Bichir - married
George Clooney - no one would be shocked
Jean Dujardin married
Gary Oldman - married. If Enty is including marrieds, I wouldn't think he'd be a shock since he's on his fourth marriage
Brad Pitt - could be shocking

Glenn Close - married
Viola Davis - married
Rooney Mara - not married, don't know if it would be a shock though with rumors about her hooking up on the Dragon set
Meryl Streep - married
Michelle Williams - no significant other that I've heard about.

I guess it could be supporting though:

Kenneth Branagh - married
Jonah Hill - not married but has a girlfriend
Nick Nolte - not married. Not sure about a significant other
Christopher Plummer - married
Max von Sydow - married

Berenice Bejo - as someone else said, married to her director
Jessica Chastain - not married, not sure about significant other
Melissa McCarthy - married
Janet McTeer - didn't find anything about being married
Octavia Spencer - didn't find anything about being married

The unmarried ones I think we could exclude because they're either unattached at present or it wouldn't be a big scandal if they cheated. Of the marrieds, I would say Brad, Glenn, Meryl, Melissa, Berenice, & Christopher.

Wow, that was a lot more interesting than working today.

Bnl1016 said...

I doubt it includes the supporting category. Best Actor/Actress means Best Actor or Actress. Not second banana. In Hollywood its a huge difference and Enty being in the fish bowl I would assume has to know that. If it were to include all 4 categories I think it would have specified. Enty always specifies if it includes the supporting category as well.

Maja. With a J. said...

If I'm going to be shocked, it pretty much has to be Meryl Streep! :)

TT said...

I think what would shock us is the age of the person, as in old age. So let's look at the seniors here for best and supporting, there's quite a few as it happens. And remember Significant Other can also be a spouse...I'd hope they'd be significant.

SusanB said...

Maybe I'm wrong - I thought I heard rumors a few years ago that Meryl Streep regularly had affairs with costars with her husband just ignoring it.

MISCH said...

No there's been talk about Meryl having "romances".

EmEyeKay said...

Glenn Close, Meryl Streep, or Brad Pitt. Yes, I know - but I'd still be shocked to find he's stepping out on Angelina.

What I'd find shocking is that Glenn or Meryl were on "an all night bender" and had a night of "epic partying" - not necessarily that they were stepping out. They seem like such LADIES.

Ol Cranky said...

Rooney Mara is with the funny McDowell kid (Charlie who does the dear girls above me blog)

I hope it's her and he's freed up for someone cooler

FrenchGirl said...

it's not Dujardin or Bejo because they were in France when they learnt their nods, it was 3:00 PM and there was some french tv with them

Since there are rumors Rooney has slept with both Daniel Craig and David Fincher, I doubt Enty would think she would be shocking. I think Meryl or Brad.

Mooshki said...

Better yet, Meryl and Brad. Maybe they hadn't met, so they could count as "strangers?" ;)

figgy said...

I would be shocked if it's Brad; I think most of us thing Angelina would kill him if he cheated.

Worstcompanytoworkfor said...

I say Meryl now that would be shocking.

Cathy said...

Mooshki - at first when I read your post, I read it as " there are rumors CLOONEY has slept with both Daniel Craig and David Fincher." That makes me giggle.

Jason B E said...

I wonder if whenever Max Von Sydow has sex he screams out "The power of Christ compells you." over and over.

Vicki Cupper said...

He uses it as a pickup line.

"The power of Christ compells you....to give me a hummer!"

chopchop said...

Vicki, you crack me up!

uberbaldy said...

I agree it could be Cloose, Streep, or Pitt but I also think Williams should still be in the running. She does have a kid after all so it would be kind of surprising that she's out having a raging bender and leaving her kid alone/with someone else ALL night. Plus hasn't there been talk she's seeing someone recently but keeping it on the down low? If she isn't seeing someone though then it can't be her since there is no S.O.

Kimberly said...

Viola davis,.glen close.and brad in a,three.way

Lioness70 said...

It's probably Brad. Enty says spouse/wife/husband in blinds about married folks.

crila16 said...

It's not best supporting actor/actress, It's best actor/actress. I'm am sure that's what Enty meant, because I just am and because that's what the BV says.

Brad wouldn't shock me at all. There have been rumors about him sleeping with his nanny. I honestly don't think that would be shocking at all.

Now...Meryl...that would shock me to death. McCarthy...hasn't been around long enough to shock me enough. Really it would just be Meryl or Glenn...mostly Meryl though. I'm going with Meryl.

msgirl said...

Isn't Michelle supposedly engaged?

I agree that this is someone who is not married.

FrenchGirl said...

for me,he/she's not married("significant other") but in couple and except with Pitt,i wouldn't be shocked

libby said...

It's Meryl. She is totally a drinker and a real fun gal....this is shocking because she's the queen of Hollywood and controls her public image so well. Plus she's over 50, and that's way past the cut-off for a casual sex image.

But trust me, Meryl is FUN.

Amy said...

The blind says "one of the nominees for best actor/best actress found out ...".

It's Pitt. You just know he was stoned out of his mind and Angie was off with Tilda.

JW said...

Wonder if we would also be shocked because it was a same sex pickup?

nunaurbiz said...

OK OK OK. I gave in to an all-nighter with George and didn't realize it was nomination time. Enty thought you guys would all be shocked that I finally gave in.

Hee hee.

not on my dollar said...

Viola, Meryl or Brad. No one else would "shock" me if Enty could Confirm that they cheated.

Sean said...

Streep is really the only choice that would surprise anyone. Most of the others that people actually know, no one would be shocked.

I met Streep for about 45 seconds once(a work thing). Shockingly nice and normal seeming. Despite her being 25 yrs older than me, I would do that in a heartbeat.

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

Hey, Meryl, if you're the one who's out there whooping it up, for God's sake call me--I need some new excitement in my life, and hell, you've always seems like someone who'd be a blast to hang out with!

(Now I've got this mental image of Meryl Steep banging some random guy like an outhouse door while her phone on the nightstand puts on a hell of a light show w/all the incoming calls and texts...)

Basil said...

I wonder what Enty considers an "epic bender". Sounds like basically a weekend party. Whatever it is, and whomever this is, they probably don't do this sort of thing all the time like Lilo or Courtney Love. And if you ask me, blowing off a little steam once every couple of months after a lengthy film shoot isn't that bad of a thing as long as it is not a weekly occurance and you can still do your job. Whoever it is, I would love to party with them.

lelale said...

Pitt called into the Today show that morning so maybe he was still awake from the day before???
Still the only one to shock me would be Meryl or Glenn.

artybajardi said...

It HAS to be Glenn Close. The "actor/actress" is a dead giveaway - she's nominated for a role of a woman pretending to be a man! Done.

ialwaysgettheseright said...

People - shock is the clue ... and remember that Rooney used a taser in Dragon Tattoo ...

tipsy mcstaggering along said...

Who was Meryl with at the SAG awards? It was not her husband and they were holding hands.

I vote Meryl.

Jay said...

SusanB - is correct. Meryl has had affairs with co-stars. Most notable is Jack Nicholson. The late, great Army Archerd - from the trade publication, Variety - did a blind item on this encounter. The "alleged" affair went on for a while. And, yes Meryl's husband is quite the Cuckold. Considering his uneventful career, I guess tolerating Meryl's dalliances are worth it $$ to him.

Brainy Pirate said...

Would it more likely someone who wasn't a front-runner for a nomination? So many of these people had already been nominated for other awards that you'd think they'd have been expecting the Oscar phone call.

Melissa81 said...

Can't be Oldman, he stated on Jimmy Kimmel that he was in the middle of his last interview for TTSS in Berlin when his manager interrupted the interview to say he had been nominated.

MiVidaCoca said...

If this were Brad Pitt or Michelle Williams i would be shocked. Brad because Angie seems to keep him on such a tight leash and because he is a homebody with that childarmy of him. Michelle gives off this smug, holier than thou, goody two shoes vibe for me. Also I don't think she was even the slightest oblivious to Heaths lifestyle and was probably in on it before Matilda came along, now that the kid gets older it's real easy to fall into old patterns.

UNOG News said...

"a tool stranger they picked up"

Has to be pitt or clooney after an epic partying they go out frequently

no way glenn close or meryl would be partying hard, believe me.

UNOG News said...

I would never believe pitt would be unfaithful ever, so i can only think of clooney because a total stranger? maybe a man?

He says THEM all the time.

What about a TRIO CLOONEY PITT and the stranger
