ST: Pointless Shot of the Enterprise


This will probably already be posted by the time this gets in, but William Shatner has started his own social networking site. That's right, William MF-ing Shatner. And what's it called?

Evidently it's a “Sci-Fi Social Network for those with a passion for the arts.” But, better than that, it's divided into sub-categories of 'starships,' and the Shat himself will assign you to one if your are deemed 'worthy.'

I....don't even know what to think at this point except AMAZING.

Spotted: Zachary Quinto and...Madonna


Madonna, Elton John, Quentin Tarantino and more hit Soho House for a star-packed pre-Oscar party in WeHo

Madonna And they call this a soft open?

Soho House held a preview party Thursday night in West Hollywood, receiving an embarrassment of bold names at its newest venue. The members-only club, which has outposts already in London and New York, partnered with Grey Goose to open its doors to Madonna, Elton John, Quentin Tarantino, Natalie Portman, Harvey Weinstein, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, Kellan Lutz, Rachel Zoe, Josh Hartnett, and Clive Owen.

If only the Academy Awards could bring out better celebs (insert appropriately ironic sound effect here).

The stars gathered in the penthouse of the exclusive Sunset Boulevard property to celebrate Sunday's big show and raise awareness for RADD, aka "the entertainment industry's voice for road safety." The select, wall-to-wall crowd snacked on steak tartare and Champagne in the redesigned space that the club had rented for a week of sneak-peek Oscars parties in 2008.

Maggie Gyllenhaal chatted on the balcony with Topher Grace, while a newly single Ryan Phillippe bobbed and weaved through a crowd that also included Joaquin Phoenix, James Cameron, Emile Hirsch, Ben Silverman, Rosanna Arquette, Matt Dillon and Guy Oseary. 

Madge, clad in a silver top and black fur-lined coat, hit it off with "Star Trek" and "Heroes" star Zachary Quinto. The two were so chummy they carried their lovefest from the balcony to a table inside. (oooooooooooooooooh. pics or it didn't happen.)

Edward Norton and his Judd Apatow-producer gal Shauna Robertson talked to industry types, exchanging smiles with Dustin Hoffman and his wife, Anne Byrne, while Elton and his partner, David Furnish, stuck to their table alongside Jason Bateman and a lavender-and-blond Kelly Osbourne. 
Soho House will hold its formal opening Friday night. Oscar parties will be raging all weekend -- can they top the House's hot names? Stay tuned.

JJ Talks Trek sequel & Oscars


Star Trek director JJ Abrams says he has high hopes of a science fiction film winning the best film Oscar.

"I think there's a real shot," he told the BBC. "I know everyone's looking at Avatar, but I was a huge fan of District 9 as well.

"I'm just excited that they're both up there, nominated for best picture." More...

Star Trek Sequel


Abrams was introduced at Thursday's ceremony by Tom Cruise, who described him as "a film-maker who doesn't set borders - a great guy and an incredible artist".

The pair recently announced they will be making Mission: Impossible 4, with Cruise reprising his role as as Ethan Hunt. The film is to be released in May 2011.

Abrams said: "I'm working with Tom on the script and we are getting a director very soon, so I'm very excited. We had such a good time on the one we did before."

Meanwhile, the director is also preparing a Star Trek sequel.

"We are at the beginning stages and a script does not exist yet so it's hard to know. But I would love to work with those actors again," he said.

"I want to do everything I can to make it the best movie possible which might, of course, mean that I shouldn't direct it - so we'll see."

I'm glad I'm not the only person who liked D9 :) However, I'd really like for him to direct the next ST. Is he just trying to be humble or something? :(
