So this is why she missed the Oscars!
Emma Thompson may have played London's worst pie-maker in Wednesday's opening night performance of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street, but early word is pretty sweet!
Emma is getting rave reviews for her Mrs. Lovett, the role originated by Angela Lansbury and made famous in the 2007 film by Helena Bonham Carter.
Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see gurl tearing off her dress and going crazy on that dough!
We have got to get tickets!

Ooh, we hardly ever see houndstooth on the red carpet!
Emma Thompson decided to give it a go Wednesday night at the New York Philharmonic Spring Gala before taking the stage to perform Sweeney Todd.
But it just wasn’t working for her. It actually reminded us of Glenn Close playing Cruella De Vil in the live action movie! All she was missing was a black streak in her hair!!
In all seriousness though, the wool coat was a little too frumpy for the HIGHlarious actress, though it looked super cozy!
Plus, it obstructed our view of her thigh-high boots!
Hmm. Maybe she’d have better luck sticking to one patterned piece than two??

Classic from head-to-toe!
Meryl Streep stepped out to the New York Philharmonic Spring Gala on Wednesday in the only way she knows how: fabulously!
With hubby Don Gummer on her arm, the August: Osage County actress covered up in navy, all the way from her chic frames to her bootcut trousers.
But the piece that caught our eye was her gorge wool coat with the white pattern!
64-years-old and still fresh! Love!
If only she could have channeled this much confidence with her Oscars look…

There she goes again!
After a very successful Louder signing on Monday in New Jersey, Lea Michele is at it again, and this time she's channeling her inner Beetlejuice!
The Glee star continued her promo tour by signing her new album and chatting with her legion of adoring fans in NYC on Tuesday!
From the looks of it, Princess Lea certainly had a GREAT time meeting her Leanatics! She tweeted after the event:
Better late than never, we guess!
This week, The New York Times was informed about a mistake they had made regarding Solomon Northup, the man whose life story is told in 12 Years A Slave.
But their error wasn’t one that was printed recently. Hardly.
This mistake was made back in 1853!
161 years before the tale of his traumatic ordeal went on to win the Oscar for Best Picture, Mr. Northup was featured in an article in the NYT. And the paper misspelled his name!
A reader named Rebecca Skloot happened to find the typos while browsing the Times’ archives. After pointing it out to them, they printed this correction:
We bet Robert Pattinson can stand under Kristen Stewart's umbrella-ella-ella-ay-ay-ay!
We reported earlier how R-Patz wanted to see his and Kristen's dogs, and as a result he received pictures of their canines and "silly" selfies from KStew.
Kristen was seen on Monday walking the streets of NYC with a huge, long rod in her hands! Well, it was just the stick of an umbrella, but we can dream, can't we? That umbrella looks ribbed for her pleasure!
She was spotted walking to the set of Still Alice, but is that to prevent her face getting wet from rain, or to maybe shield everyone else from her wet face covered in potential tears?

Attention hipsters who have flocked to Brooklyn like fruit flies to week-old pineapple:
Spike Lee is NOT a fan.
During a speaking engagement at Brooklyn's Pratt Institute last Tuesday, the proud New Yorker and legendary director was asked about how he feels gentrification has affected his old neighborhood.
Well, he was very nearly asked it, anyway. Before the question could even be uttered in its entirety, Spike had broken into a seven minute rant on gentrification, Brooklyn, race relations, and, yes, hipsters.
At one point the Crooklyn director blamed hipsters for driving up housing prices in certain neighborhoods, implying that it was essentially impossible for more legitimate residents to even live in these suddenly expensive places anymore.
