Now it can be told: Carey Mulligan has admitted she got drunk and ruined her Prada gown at the 2010 Oscar ceremony. The actress, nominated that year for Best Actress in the film An Education, told British Vogue: “I wore this Prada dress covered in cooking utensils. I got drunk at the end of the night and started ripping them off and giving them as presents to people, so that was fun. I’m pretty sure that was the point of it, that’s how Miuccia [Prada] meant for it to go, I’m sure.” For the record, Sandra Bullock collected the Best Actress Oscar that year for The Blind Side.
Director Quentin Tarantino is suing Gawker for directing readers to a leaked copy of his latest movie. Tarantino’s lawsuit against the news and gossip site accuses Gawker Media of copyright infringement for posting a link to the 146-page script for his planned western feature The Hateful Eight last week. The link was posted to Gawker’s Defamer blog and remained active for days despite demands from Tarantino’s lawyers to remove it. “There was nothing newsworthy or journalistic about Gawker Media facilitating and encouraging the public’s violation of [Tarantino’s] copyright in the Screenplay,” states the lawsuit. Tarantino recently announced his intent to stop production of Hateful Eight after the leaked script made the rounds of several Hollywood agents.

JUMPING THE GUN
The rumours are true: The Full House cast have reunited for a yogurt commercial. The 30-second spot for Oikos features Full House fixture John Stamos enjoying some yogurt with an attractive young lady when he’s rudely interrupted by his former TV castmates Bob Saget and Dave Coulier. The commercial was originally scheduled to debut on Super Bowl Sunday, but Oikos chose to debut the ad over the weekend, which apparently caught Stamos by surprise. “Weird, they play the whole spot before game,” Stamos tweeted on Sunday. “I’m dying to hear what you think of it.”
LOVE TOO LATE
At least one person isn’t happy about the mass-wedding ceremony conducted on last night’s Grammys broadcast. A man named Michael Politz claims he discovered on Sunday that his ex-girlfriend Tammy would be one of the 33 couples tying the knot during Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s performance of Same Love. Politz claims he spent a good part of the day calling people – including heavy-metal rocker Vince Neil – in hopes of telling Tammy that he still loved her, but to no avail. “I’m heartbroken,” Politz said. “I don’t know if I’ll ever trust again.” And what of the bride? Newlywed Tammy Grabel told TMZ: “Michael is a broken-hearted ex-boyfriend. [New husband] Seth and I are very happy to be married.”
Whether it was the mass wedding or Pharrell Williams’s giant hat, the Grammy Awards drew its second-biggest viewing audience in more than two decades. Airing on CBS, the music-industry awards fete pulled in an average of 28.5-million viewers over its three-hour-and-45-minute running time. The audience marks a slight viewing increase over the 28.4-million people who watched last year’s Grammys, but falls far short of the 40-million viewers who watched the 2012 show that aired one day after the sudden death of singer Whitney Houston. On Canadian television, the Grammys earned 2.539-million viewers for Rogers-owned broadcaster Citytv.
