  • Mariah Carey has sparked baby rumors after making this comment at the Independent Spirit Awards:

“I have a lot of new acting projects coming up. I am talking to [‘Precious’ director Lee Daniels] about at least three movies. But there’s also something else very special on the way. I can’t say any more.” [PageSix]

  • A source claims that Barbara Walters had a difficult time interviewing Mo’Nique for her Oscar special, deeming it “one of her most challenging subjects ever,” though Walters herself denies the claims and says “There was nothing about [Mo’Nique] that was rude.” [NYDN]
  • Rumor has it that Charlize Theron and Jeremy Renner may attend the Vanity Fair Oscar party together: “They get along very well and we suspect something is going on between them, although they are being very coy,” says a source. [DailyMail]
  • Sienna Miller and Jude Law will also most likely be at the Oscars together, and perhaps everywhere else together soon enough, as a source notes: “Sienna is determined to make it work with Jude this time. She doesn’t want to let him out of her sight. She loves him and wants them to stay together, so she is prepared to move wherever he is.” [DailyMail]
  • Meanwhile, Carey Mulligan will not be taking Shia LaBeouf to tonight’s ceremony, opting to take her family, instead. [E!]
  • Madonna is reportedly thinking of hitting the Oscar party scene with Adam Senn of The City. [PageSix]
  • “I’m kind of interested in a guy. Sometimes I think, ‘Maybe I’ll invite him to the Oscars, maybe I won’t.’ Then I’m like, it probably isn’t the right time to go on a first date with a guy, where everybody is going to be walking up to me and telling me how awesome I am. That might be weird.”-Gabourey Sidibe [Mirror]
  • Sandra Bullock is up for Best Actress at tonight’s Oscars, but she already took home the Best Actress Razzie Award for her performance in All About Steve. According to Reuters: “No performer has ever won a Razzie and an Oscar the same year.” {Reuters]
  • At least she has a sense of humor about it though: Bullock showed up in person, dragging a cart filled with All About Steve DVDs, to pick up her awards. “Again, if you had seen the film, seen it with your eyes, it’s pretty much a film about a woman stalking a man. That doesn’t really set up the premise for a loving couple. So giving us the worst couple award is kind of, duh.” [People]
  • Meanwhile, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen took home the Razzie for Worst Picture. [NYTimes]
  • Don’t expect to hear many Tiger Woods jokes at the Oscars tonight: they’ve reportedly been removed from the script. [PageSix]
  • Good Charlotte’s Joel Madden is the official in-house DJ for tonight’s Oscar ceremony, and he says he’s “just there to keep the vibe. In between the show and in between people going up and accepting awards there’s a lot of dead space and a lot of dead air, so I’ll be just be there trying to keep it light and keep it fun.” Do you think he’ll play this? [People]
  • Uh-oh! Hayden Panettiere was spotted flirting with Gerard Butler. Oh, Lonely Jen! When will you win? [NYDN]
  • Jennifer Lopez says her character on How I Met Your Mother is “not what she appears to be. She’s actually the author of the fictitious book, Of Course You’re Still Single, Take A Look At Yourself You Dumb Slut.” [JustJared]
  • If you’re a fan of Fringe, you’ll be happy to know that the show has been renewed for a third season. [EW]
  • Yikes! Lily Allen was mooned outside of a night club on Friday night. [DailyMail]
  • “Believe it or not, I have terrible dancing skills. I can do everything on the ice, but as soon as you put me on the ground, I’m that person that falls down walking off a curb.”-Johnny Weir [JustJared]
  • Kate Gosselin was stopped for speeeding, twice. Mothers of 8! They’re just like us! [TMZ]
  • “He is crazy and wild, he has that wildness and the madness, but he is also an incredibly disciplined storyteller.”-Jodie Foster on Mel Gibson [LATimes]
  • Roseanne Barr has posted another Marie Osmond-rant on her blog, only this time, she appears to be more sympathetic: “thinking about how terrible it would be to lose a child for any reason, accident, illness, murder, mental illness or suicide. It seems it would either galvanize you or destroy you. Sometimes, though when your heart is broken, it’s also at it’s most open, and something new and better can come in to heal it. I see Marie Osmond as a decent and strong woman, who can make a huge change in her sphere one day. The Mormon church reversed its ban on African American members, and it can also reverse it’s gay agenda. Marie is the kind of person who can make that her life’s work, and accomplish it. Mormon women are some of the world’s strongest women. Marie is going back to work in her Las Vegas show the day after her son’s funeral. She is that strong in her focus and determination, and I do admire that. Good Luck on all you do, Marie. You have so much power to turn the wrong things around! It’s time for all bigotry to be gone.”” [RadarOnline]
  • A source claims that Amy Winehouse‘s ex, Blake Fielder-Civil, is thinking of turning to Scientology: “He has been reading lots of Scientology books and researching it on the internet. He is seriously thinking about becoming an active member.” [TheSun]
  • Good news: Joaquin Phoenix is set to return to movies. [Showbiz411]
  • “Before I came to Hollywood I was the son of a famous newsman and my aunt Rosemary had been one of the biggest stars in the music business in her day (she starred in White Christmas). So I knew what it meant to be a celebrity and how it could all go away pretty fast. My father taught me about having principles and how to treat people with respect. My aunt also taught me how to keep a perspective on everything that happens to you. So you learn to be humble and not take your success for granted.”-George Clooney [Mirror]
  • Madonna’s brother, Christopher Ciccone, doesn’t seem too impressed with his sister’s role on The Marriage Ref: ” can’t imagine what she’s doing on The Marriage Ref giving advice to married couples. I guess it’s kind of ironic. Everyone has their experiences regarding marriage: hers are maybe what not to do.” [DailyExpress]
  • Matt Damon acknowledges that making a comedy is harder than it seems: “Yeah, I’d love to end up in a movie like The Hangover, but I think it’s just really hard to make a good comedy,” he smiles, citing Ben Stiller and Will Ferrell as particular favourites. “To sustain a whole movie? That’s really, really tough to do, and that’s why there are so few great comedies. I mean, there are good comedies made every year, but they definitely have not come my way.” [TimesOnline]
  • Stevie Wonder has been named a Commander of the Arts and Letters in France. Upon accepting his award, Stevie said: “I receive this honor in memory of my mother and in memory of all of those that have made it possible for me to stand here today.” [UPI]
  • “Everyone’s really offended by that. But come on, brushing your teeth with Jack Daniel’s: what girl does that? People are like, ‘Do you really advocate brushing your teeth with bourbon?’ I’m like, ‘Yes, actually, I do, every day, for everybody. Especially eight-year-olds.’ I mean, what are you talking about? Of course I don’t. Come on.”-Ke$ha [TimesOnline]
