W.E. Oscar Nomination, Box Office results and Madonna interview

Congratulations Arianne Phillips! She has just received an Oscar nomination for “Best Achievement in Costume Design” for her work in Madonna’s movie W.E.

Madonna has said it is a shame the royal family aren’t revered like movie stars any more.
She told Grazia magazine she thinks royality such as Prince William and Kate Middleton should be treated like A-listers, not ambassadors for the country.

I think the royal family of the ’30s and ’40s were the stars of their day.
Edward VIII was really like a movie star.
People were in love with him.
Now, with the royals, their role in society seems to be reduced to being ambassadors.
I think it’s a shame.
I like the old-fashioned way.

But royal fan Madonna admitted she doesn’t move in the same circles as the Windsors.

I don’t get invited to any of their parties!
