While it was Amy Adams‘ Critics’ Choice Movie Award winning performance in Junebug that first brought the actress to our attention, it wasn’t until she got down with Will Ferrell on a restaurant table in Talladega Nights that we realized just how hot she was (“And you ride it—you ride it like a skeleton horse through the gates of hell!”). A regular on the red carpet thanks to big roles in Enchanted, Doubt and Julie & Julia, Adams has had plenty of opportunities to show off her stuff in glamorous gowns and tiny—but tasteful—dresses. Whether Adams wins another CCMA for playing the sexiest bartender in Lowell, Massachusetts in The Fighter (we’ll totally forgive the almost anachronistic tramp stamp), we’re sure she’s got some killer looks lined up for awards season.
Check out 20 of our favorites in the gallery below and see if she wins when the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards air on VH1 this Friday night.

We’re a little suspicious about this quote—everyone’s crediting it to a nameless “German glamor mag”—but it looks like Nicole Kidman has finally admit to using Botox…if only in the past tense. “I’ve tried a lot of things but apart from working out and a good diet most things don’t help,” she allegedly confessed. “I even tried Botox but I didn’t like how my face looked afterwards. Now I don’t use it anymore—and I can move my forehead again.”
Despite constant denials, the Critics’ Choice Movie Award nominee became notorious for her facial work—you can even tell which scenes in The Invasion are reshoots by watching her eyes. Check out our timeline gallery below and make your guess as to when (and if!) she had work done.

The Social Network‘s award season sweep continued at last night’s National Board Of Review gala, with the movie taking home Best Film, Best Actor (Jesse Eisenberg), Best Director (David Fincher) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Aaron Sorkin). Other winners included Another Year‘s Lesley Manville (Best Actress), Christian Bale (Best Supporting Actor) and Jennifer Lawrence (Breakthrough Performance). Not a lot of surprises, though the quickly forgotten Ryan Reynolds vehicle Buried got Best Original Screenplay and made the Board’s Top Ten Independent Films list. Guess we’ll go put that on our queue.
See photos of the winners, as well as stars like Blake Lively and Jennifer Garner, in the gallery below. Find out if The Social Network continues its winning streak at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, airing on VH1 this Friday.

As if we weren’t already blown away by her Critics’ Choice Movie Award-nominated turn in Black Swan, now it’s revealed that Mila Kunis was blind in one eye the whole time. “I was blind in one eye for many years, and nobody knew,” the actress reveals. Kunis was diagnosed with chronic iritis, an inflammation of the iris that can potentially lead to permanent vision impairment. No word yet on whether Mila was still afflicted when she read the script for her new rom-com Friends With Benefits with Justin Timberlake, but based on the trailer, that’s a real possibility.
Luckily treatment was available, and Kunis has since regained her sight. “I’m not blind anymore. I had surgery a couple of months ago. They cut it open and dropped a new lens in there,” Mila explained. Guess that explains why Kunis’s break-up from Macaulay Culkin came when it did. We’re just kidding! We mean, she had her other eye the whole time. As for what she wants in a new man, Mila has got her sights (pun intentional) on a man with swagger. “Confidence, not cockiness,” Mila explains. “Looks go; they fade. I don’t think looks matter.” Wait, has she walked by a mirror since she had her eyes fixed?. Don’t sell yourself short, Mila, before you witness the true hotness you have achieved.

The New York Press‘ Armond White reaffirmed his rep as the world’s angriest film critic at last night’s NY Film Critics’ Circle Awards, throwing barbs at any movie that dared to win despite him hating it. Some on-stage highlights from the circle’s chair:
- White suggested presenter Tony Kushner, awarding Best Picture to The Social Network, could “explain why it won.”—because Armond hated it.
- White only discussed the 2004 film Land Of Plenty when introducing Blue Valentine‘s Michelle Williams. “I can’t imagine what you’ve said about me since then if you had to go back that far to say something nice,” she responded.
- White muttered “at least Greenberg didn’t win anything,” having previously suggested in print that director Noah Baumbach‘s mother should have had a “retroactive abortion.”
Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky got off a good one back (“Keep it up, you give us a reason to never read the New York Press“), to which White responded, “he reads me, he knows the truth.” But Best Actress winner Annette Bening was not amused, reportedly crying a variation on “can’t we all get along?” during her acceptance speech.
See the shuddering stars who braved White’s barrage in the gallery below. This Friday’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards should be a breeze after this!

Looks like Jake Gyllenhaal doesn’t have a bad relationship with all of his exes. The Love & Other Drugs star waxed poetic about ex-girlfriend Natalie Portman this weekend while presenting her with the Desert Palm Achievement Award at th Palm Springs International Film Festival. “[She's] the Audrey Hepburn of our generation. She’s graceful, has amazing eyebrows, and is talented, really short, funny, smart, dedicated, incredibly kind and Jewish!”
Obviously in a giggly mood (“It does get hard when you’re out to dinner with her,” he said about the vegan), Gyllenhaal cracked wise about how he met Portman. “I first met Natalie at a Star Wars convention waiting in line for her to sign my Queen Amadala doll and I’m really hoping she wins the Oscar. Because if she does, then that doll is going to be worth a s—load of money!” If she takes Best Actress at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, airing Jan. 14th on VH1, the odds will be looking pretty good.
Check out the gold-lapeled dress Natalie wore to the event in the gallery below. Do you think Audrey Hepburn would have worn it?

Or as they say in France, she has a croissant in her beret. Actress Marion Cotillard is pregnant with a bébé due this spring, reports US Magazine. Cotillard’s rep has confirmed the Nine star and her equally good-looking mate French director Guillaume Canet are expecting their first. That baby is going to be reading continental philosophy and sneering at tourists in no time!
Cotillard most recently appeared in the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards-nominated Inception along side Leo Dicaprio, and memorably won the Oscar for Best Actress in 2007 for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose. Cotillard and Canet met while working the French romantic thriller Love Me If You Dare in 2003, meaning that Marion’s life is now exactly the life we fantasized for ourselves when we were 16. Congratulations to the happy Gallic couple!
