The stars of The Golden Compass took their fantasy world to the red carpet in London Tuesday night. Nicole Kidman looked flawless (and allegedly botox-free) on Keith's arm, while Hugh Grant was perfectly nonchalant with his undone buttons. Daniel Craig looked stone faced, as did his ex Bond girl Eva Green, but he sounded excited about his new movie. He said, "It's a bit of escapism... and the special effects have come such a long way that it's now possible to go to places that you wouldn't have been able to even five years ago." We could all use a bit of escape during the hectic holiday season and this fantasy adventure could be just the ticket.

TV Drinks: 30 Rock — Nancy Drew AKA Hardy Boy A few weeks ago, there was a great moment on 30 Rock that made me laugh out loud. Alec Baldwin's character, Jack Donaghy, says to the bartender, "I'll have a white rum with diet ginger ale and a splash of lime." Fast forward a few seconds later and the bartender presents him with his drink, "The Nancy Drew."
Ashlee Simpson showed off her sultry eyes (but no smiles) for the December issue of Cosmo Girl. She's got a new album coming out this month and a new found confidence to go along with it. I must say that I've always had a soft spot for Ash, despite all her ridiculousness, so I'm giving her a big high five for being (or at least seeming) happy. In the magazine she talks about her new music, and her boy Pete. Here's a highlight from her interview:
People expected me to do even more of a rock record because of Pete, but I went in the opposite direction. This is a fun party album, and I get to be kind of cheeky for the first time — silly and quirky, like my friends and I can be sometimes. For me, the music on the album just came naturally. I trusted my instincts, and I'm proud about the results. It's a record in which I'm saying, 'I am woman and I won't take anyone's s***.' I felt free to be fun and crazy and sexy, and that's what I did. Pete's not on this record at all — we're so different musically. He likes to do his own thing and I do my own. He listened to it, though, as I was making it. I couldn't not let him listen to it! He's a great sounding board and very supportive. Pete and I complement each other. We are best friends and we encourage each other. I think that is so important in any relationship — it builds a solid foundation."

We've seen lots of David Beckham recently, but shirtless Becks is still a special Manjoyment treat. Even though the Galaxy lost to Sydney FC last night, you wouldn't know it from the grin on David's face. Unfortunately, Becks played in pain, clutching his ankle near the beginning of the game but insisting on staying in, even scoring a goal. He said, "I was really happy to score tonight because of the amount of fans and the attention that there has been on myself and this game tonight, so I was really pleased." Becks has had a few ups and downs lately, so we're happy to hear that last night he had a chance to shine.

Unlikely pair Lisa Kudrow and Zach Braff were up bright and early in LA this morning to announce the nominees for the 2008 Independent Spirit Awards. Award season is so underway. The impossibly adorable looking Juno and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly led the way with four nominations each, followed by I'm Not There with three. The best actress category is particularly exciting with both Angelina Jolie and Sienna Miller snagging nods. Check out the full list of nominees here. As for Lisa and Zach, it looks like they may have struck up a friendship while out protesting on behalf of the striking writers earlier this month.

Dear Poll: Who Would You Want to Work It Off With? After you stuffed your face with mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie, it's time to work it all off before you completely sabotage that diet of yours! I don't know about you, but once I've taken a break from working out, getting back on track isn't easy.
