The Oscars are tonight, aka the Super Bowl for Women. And if the Super Bowl can have 40 pre-parties then so can the Oscars. One of those is the Women in Film soiree, hosted by Women in Film, a non-profit organization dedicated to women’s achievement in the entertainment industry.

Those in the Hollywood scene weren’t surprised when reports of Jesse James’s affair surfaced mere days after his wife Sandra Bullock won her first Oscar for The Blind Side. “It’s the Best Actress curse,” everyone whispered, alluding to the longstanding belief that there’s a casual relationship between winning an Academy Award and having one’s relationship unravel. The Best Actress statuette isn’t the only Oscar with bad juju — according to the grapevine, winning the Best Supporting Actress Oscar turns into a long-term loss.

…Until they learn to loosen up and have some FUN once in a while. Take a wild guess at the gender of the person who gets to teach them that lesson.

Katie Holmes didn’t have an official presentation at New York Fashion Week, but her fashion line Holmes & Yang did schedule a private showing of the latest collection for press. However, the blizzard that hit New York on Friday meant early school closings for New York City kids, which includes little Miss Suri Cruise. I’m sure Holmes has a bevy of people on her staff who could have picked up her daughter, but instead she chose to do it herself.
