    Re: People's Choice Nomination

    The awards are a joke and will be given to whoever turns up (but mostly Aniston, Will Smith etc). Matt has never won one I think. A popularity contest.

    I think he's seen Lion King a few times - he also went for Isabella's birthday in NY years ago.

    Matt and family went to Wicked on Tuesday after filming:

    Star magazine

    Star has a cover story that Matt and Lucy's marriage is over, but the story is completely debunked by Gossip Cop.
    http://www.gossipcop.com/matt-damon-divorce-luciana-barroso-divorcing-split/

    As we know, the selling house story is also false, and confirmed by Gossip Gosip:

    Alicia Vikander mentions filming Bourne (and likes the set):

    Why can't they just leave Matt and his Wife alone?
    Judging by the pictures of them running with Kyle, looks like their still going stronge.

    It may all be based on the false premise of the LA house being sold (which was never true).

    mattdamoncolumn From: mattdamoncolumn Date: November 5th, 2015 03:16 am (UTC) (Link)

    Re: Star magazine

    No, the LA Times confirmed on Twitter about two weeks ago that the house wasn't for sale and Variety's sources were incorrect. The Gossip Cop report isn't breaking news that the house wasn't for sale, they're just making it a bigger story.

    I assume Bono must be there because everybody knows what Bono looks like but does anybody else think the profile of the blonde guy sitting next to Matt looks a lot like Christopher Nolan?

    Based on the recent concert photos I thought that person was Bono.

    And... they're off!

    The horse race begins in earnest.

    My favorite person (ha) David Poland has posted his 'guessing gurus' list of likely Oscar nominees in the major categories. It has also been posted at awards daily, so will get wide exposure.

    Anything can happen, but these lists are often fairly representative of who ends up getting actual nominations, so it's rather heartening!

    Best Picture: The Martian is not only on the list, but is in second place to Spotlight! Considering that it's this high on the list, it would be VERY unusual for it not to get an Oscar nom.

    Best Actor: Matt is on the list (yay!) in forth place (boo!). Hey, no worries, plenty of time for people to come around. But he's definitely on a bit of a bubble. We need to get out there and lobby for Matt! I've been doing my part 😇

    Best Director: Ridley is in second place!

    Martian

    The Martian is on track to finish third for the weekend with $7.6 million and a total by Sunday night of $195.4 million (via Deadline).

    RE: Martian

    The legs on this movie have been insane. It is predicted to have around a 20% drop against the Bond movie, which is crazy. Will be interesting to see just how high over $200m it can go. $500m+ internationally is almost certain.

    RE: Paddington

    I love, love, love Bourne but do have some concerns that this seems overly familiar. Hopefully this is just a jumping off place to something original. Which is something I think the audience expects out of a Bourne movie.

    RE: Paddington

    I seriously can't wait until the trailer comes out that way we can get an idea on what the movie will be about and we'll finally get a name. I think it will be called The Bourne Betrayal, because all the names of the movies (so far) have fallen in order with the books.

    Star Magazine & The Martian

    I've read the Star article. Mostly rubbish, but there may be some truth there. I have no doubts that Ben moving in to the guesthouse must have generated tension in Matt's marriage.



    My prediction for The Martian : 220M+ in USA and 600M+ Worldwide. The figure may increase according the movie's performance in China and in the next award season.
    Or am I being too optimistic?

    RE: Star Magazine & The Martian

    If it does well in China it should have no problem pass 600M. It would be interesting to see if it can pass Bourne ultimatum.

    Re: Star Magazine

    A few facts which the Star article got wrong - the easy ones as I haven't seen the article. I posted some of this in response to the Celebitchy article but it got deleted (they clearly only want to push a certain agenda).

    For a start, there is no guest house on Matt's property. The guest house idea was originally floated by a tabloid post-divorce announcement while Ben and Jen were going to work things out and Matt was overseas. Then the nanny story broke and Ben didn't go near Matt's house I would suspect. Ben's house has a guest apartment, not Matt's.

    Matt and Ben have hardly been in the same city in recent months. When Matt got back to LA Ben was barely around at the same time. There wouldn't have been a lot of catching up or drinking/partying.

    The story claims Lucy followed Matt on the whole press tour. There wasn't really a press tour. Matt did press in LA, Toronto (Lucy came for two or three days) and London. Lucy wasn't around for the London bit.

    They are not selling the LA house (Variety was incorrect). Gossip Cop has trashed the selling house story and the cover story allegations as completely baseless.

    Any other allegations?

    RE: Re: Star Magazine

    I don 't look at the stories but find it significant that they are being planted just as Matt is in the running during awards season.

    Re: Star Magazine

    So, Matt doesn't have a guesthouse?
    I've told you this article is mostly BS.

    So far, the media had not messed with Matt's family life, what had changed now? I can't believe that everything is due to Ben's divorce only...

    Your comment is still in Celebitchy, I think.
