A lovely gal source of ours jaunted out to a non-Petco pooch place in Bel Air to play with the Maltese puppies. See, she recently had a Maltese of her very own wander off to doggy heaven, and playing with the store’s pup had become a personal pastime of hers. So, our girl was contentedly canoodling with the canine when one of the store’s employees approached her and rudely forced her to give up the dog, because someone else wanted to purchase it, pronto. Some deep déjà vu of the Ellen-Iggy episode, right?
Well, the purchaser in question to whom our sad source had to hand the dog over was none other than Britney, with assistant Alli ('member her?) by her wacky side.
Straight and to the point, sistah. But you’re forgetting, one had a so-preggers Angelina Jolie and one definitely didn’t. The Indie Spirits stole Oscar’s thunder, with Angie-babe showing up on the blue carpet with partner Pitt, passively promoting her pregnancy by finally throwing away the flowy frocks and trench coats in favor of a skintight black cocktail dress.
Ang didn’t pick up an award that eve, but she def picked up the most press by baring that bump to the world. Who needs the Oscars when the little awards show that could is making all the best headlines? I mean, Tilda Swinton and her swingers love life didn’t even come close to eclipsing Sunday’s show in the same breathtaking Brangie way. More awards-type bits 'n' blabs:
He's Not There: “He never left the set...He was really watching the process of filmmaking. He would offer suggestions that were so good, and I would use them all.”—I’m Not There director Todd Haynes, bittersweetly reminiscing about Heath Ledger at the Indie Spirit Awards. The rest of the film’s Dylans were lined up behind him in a rain-soaked Santa Monica tent, all tight-lipped and quiet, lest they tear up at any Ledger uncomfortable—i.e., drag-laden—memory. But one of those D-dolls had the most presh thing to add, not in regard to Heath, though. (Ironically, the quote you’re about to read is from the gal who, like, totally ruled at Heath’s Australian memorial service.)
“He whispered into my ear...It was so noisy, I had no idea what he said. I hope he liked it. I hope he’s seen it.”
—Cate Blanchett, on Bob Dylan’s take on I’m Not There. Sure, Cate blames the noise, but we bet nobody ever understand anything Bobby D mumbles, regardless of outside influences.
Juno What I Mean? “I’m gonna go all classy to the Oscars. I’m gonna wash under my arms.”
—Diablo Cody, backstage at the Indie Awards after picking up Best First Screenplay. We just checked our English-to-Diabolese dictionary, and apparently “classy” means “cheetah-print cavewoman gown.” Guess she should have chose those million-dollar heels, huh?
