Everyone ready for a brand-new year of making fun of celebrities with needy egos and too much money? In the latter category, here’s Will Ferrell at ‘The Spoils of Babylon’ premiere in L.A. sporting a suit knitted from his ‘Anchorman 2’ residuals. Looking good, Mr. Burgundy!

Also at the ‘Babylon’ event was beloved ventriloquist Edgar Bergen and his incorrigible little wooden friend Charlie McCarthy... Oh, wait, that’s former ‘Sixth Sense’ child star Haley Joel Osment and actor-activist Tim Robbins

Shift to New York, where ‘Girls’ cast regular Allison Williams broached red-carpet etiquette by using an iPad to search for photos of herself on the ‘Girls’ red carpet while she was still on the ‘Girls’ red carpet. Don’t be so desperate, sista!

No question the big draw at the ‘Girls’ premiere was the show’s creator-star Lena Dunham, who simply can’t take a bad picture

Also in New York this week: The National Board of Review Awards, which prompted a red-carpet turn by former Saturday Night Live regular Will Forte. He was terrific as MacGruber, right?

Also at the awards fete was that fine Canadian Mike Myers. Remember how he made us laugh in those Austin Powers movies? Be-have!

And when it rains awards in the Big Apple, it pours. Here’s Ethan Hawke arriving for the New York FIlm Critics Circle Awards. Dude, that scowling young-man pose doesn't work nearly as well when you’re 43

Also at the Critics Circle event was acting legend Robert Redford, who got stuck listening to rocker-actor Jared Leto’s reasons why he should receive an Oscar nomination for ‘Dallas Buyer’s Club’

Toward the same cause, Leto attempted to overpower the minds of media covering the Critics Circle Awards into supporting his bid for an Oscar nod.. ‘Repeat after me: Leto…Leto...’

‘Can you believe that crazy hippie?’ Redford laughed to Cate Blanchett. ‘He actually thinks he can hypnotize people into getting him an Oscar nomination?’
