The Superbowl wasn’t the only place for parties – there were also birthday celebrations going on in California.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi celebrated their birthdays with a joint bash at home on Saturday. Ellen celebrated her 51st birthday and Portia celebrated her 36th birhtday.

Samantha Ronson was there to deejay and brought along girlfriend Lindsay Lohan. People reports other pals included Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox Arquette, David Arquette, Drew Barrymore, Ben Stiller, Christine Taylor and Sacha Baron Cohen.

Another birthday celebration was for Justin Timberlake. Jessica Biel threw Justin, a Superbowl themed surprise 28th birthday party on Sunday. The penthouse was transformed with flat-screen televisions brought in especially for the festivities, and the party feasted on gourmet buffalo wings, pizza, mini sliders and red velvet cupcakes.

Let’s not forget Lauren Conrad, from the Hills. Lauren was surprised when she entered the restaurant Lavo and saw her friends, including Lauren “Lo” Bosworth and her actor-beau Kyle Howard (Missing: Her pal Audrina Patridge and ex-beau Brody Jenner.) ready to celebrate her 23rd birthday.

Happy Birthday to Justin Timberlake, Lauren Conrad, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi.

He’s Just Not That Into You

This is one movie that I CANNOT wait to see – especially after seeing all of the press surrounding it.

Where else can you see Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Scarlett Johannson and Ginnifer Goodwin in one room discussing dating. It’s like a slumber party without the pajamas.

My own personal favorite, Ben Affleck, is also in the movie along with Jennifer Connelly, Kevin Connolly, Justin Long and Bradley Cooper – this makes me want to run to the theatre on February 6th.

Jennifer, Drew, Scarlett, and Ginnifer (Chris Klein’s ex) sat down with Extra and discussed what else but dating. Here are their opinions on what it means to date: Jennifer said, (I am not sure what that means – but this is what she said.)

I think it’s just hard to date. It’s not like we’re kids. We’re not dating.”

Scarlett, who is married to Ryan Reynolds, stated, Drew said,

“Dating to me is like you’re with somebody and you’re committed to them. And you have date night, and it’s romantic,”

“I like dinner. I like to be asked on a date. I like tradition.”

To see more of the interview, go to Extra. It’s a great interview. What’s your opinion on dating – do you enjoy it??

Drew Barrymore Doesn’t Understand Relationships

And who could blame her. Drew had a very unconventional childhood – her parents divorced at an early age and in an interview with Britain’s OK Magazine Drew explains,

“My father was literally out of his mind and my mother was more like a friend.”

Drew has had a string of long-term relationships and has been married twice – for one-month in 1994 to a Welsh bar owner and a 15-month marriage to comedian Tom Green in 2001.

Her failed marriages have had a long term effect on Drew,

“It left me without any bearings when it came to how to live in general. That obviously affects you in terms of everything else you’re going to experience. So I haven’t had as much happiness or success in my past relationships as I would have liked. What’s helped me is having really good and close friends who I’ve always been able to rely on”

You have to feel for Drew – marriage is hard enough – Drew didn’t have any role models as a child as far as relationships go. The closest thing to a role model that Drew had was Steven Spielberg. When you thank someone at the Golden Globes for showing up when you said you would that speaks volumes.

I hope Drew figures it out and finds her one true love.

Golden Globes All Set Without John Travolta

The Golden Globes are scheduled for tonight at 8PM.  A guaranteed star studded event. 

The presenters alone are reason enough to watch the show.  What a list:  Zac Efron,Jake Gyllenhaal, Salma Hayek, Pierce Brosnan, Sandra Bullock, Demi Moore, Renee Zellweger, Dustin Hoffman, Drew Barrymore, Sacha Baron Cohen, Gerard Butler, Johnny Depp, David Duchovny, Megan Fox, Eva Longoria, Eva Mendes, Jane Krakowski, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Sting, Mark Wahlberg, Aaron Eckhart, the Jonas Brothers, Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Chris Rock, Hayden Panettiere, Amy Poehler, Sean Combs… to name a few.

This year they have re-designed the award – the trophy consists of an angel standing on top of a Golden Globe with a black crystal vase.  They have also included the special Cecil B. DeMille Award, which will be given to Steven Spielberg, for his “outstanding contribution to the entertainment field.”

Kate Winslet, Ralph Fiennes, Judi Dench, Kirstin Scott Thomas and Hugh Laurie are all in the running for top prizes at the show which recognizes the best in film and television. 

Kate Winslet, Kirstin Scott Thomas, Rebecca Hall, Sally Hawkins and Emma Thompson are all nominated in the two best actress categories for their performances this year.

On a sad note, John Travolta, who is mourning the death of his 16-year-old son Jett, has canceled his appearance at the Golden Globe Awards.

John, whose latest movie, Bolt, is nominated for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song for his duet with costar Miley Cyrus (“I Thought I Lost You”) — was scheduled to present.

Jonas Brothers Are Presenting at Golden Globe Awards

Access Hollywood is reporting the Jonas Brothers and Hayden Panettiere will present at the Golden Globe Awards.
In addition director Martin Scorsese, Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, Aaron Eckhart, Jake Gyllenhaal, Salma Hayek, Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez, Amy Poehler, and Seth Rogen.

The 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be broadcast Sunday from the Beverly Hilton at 8 p.m. on NBC.

I love the awards ceremonies. More for the fashion then the actual awards. Anyone else plan on watching?
