Lindsay Lohan Dines with Woody Allen in Manhattan

Originally posted 05/07/2012 11:00AM

It appears that Lindsay Lohan is sticking to her post-probation plan to enjoy "low-key dinners."

Lohan, 25, dined at Manhattan restaurant Philippe over the weekend with Woody Allen, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

There's no word on whether Lohan, who was recently cast as Elizabeth Taylor for an upcoming Lifetime movie, has plans to work with Allen professionally – but it's probably an opportunity she would welcome.

"They had dinner together [Saturday] in New York," Lohan's rep tells PEOPLE. "Lindsay very much admires Mr. Allen."

POLL: Which Should Win Best Picture of the Year?

Oscars 2012: Which Should Win Best Picture of the Year?

Originally posted 02/25/2012 05:45PM

Make no mistake: Oscar loves the movies.

Of the nine films in contention to be named Best Picture, the two with the most overall nominations – Hugo, with 11, and The Artist, with 10 – focus on the art form in its infancy and each is a Valentine to the medium – but will one of them snag Oscar's heart?

Having already earned Martin Scorsese a Golden Globe for his direction, Hugo sets its story in Paris, where orphan Hugo Cabret helps the real-life 1900s screen pioneer Georges Melies (played by Ben Kingsley) enjoy renewed appreciation in 1931.

With a number critics' circle awards as best picture of 2011, BAFTA's and the Producers Guild best picture of the year awards and the best musical or comedy motion picture Golden Globe, The Artist, set in 1927, examines of Hollywood's transition from silents to talkies as it affects a successful leading man (Jean Dujardin) who staunchly refuses to adapt to the new process.

Pop quiz: What annual awards show airs this Sunday night? If you're as into the Oscars as we are, you likely just yawned and said, "Easiest. Question. Ever." And you'd be right.

Now, let's try a few more challenging questions. Which of the current crop of Best Actress hopefuls honeymooned at George Clooney's Italian villa? The Help's Jessica Chastain earned a scholarship to Julliard funded by which Oscar-winning comedian? War Horse composer John Williams's son sang for which classic rock band?

Snubs, What Snubs? PEOPLE Critic Takes on the Oscar Nods

Oscar Nominations: PEOPLE Critic's Take

Originally posted 01/24/2012 02:00PM

Nominations are out for the 84th Academy Awards. Here is PEOPLE Magazine critic Alynda Wheat's take on what went down at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Hugo?! Fine, Hugo.
Leading the pack with 11 nominations is Martin Scorsese's kids movie that's not actually for kids. I confess that I still don't get it. Technically, Hugo is a triumph (you'll notice that the vast majority of its nominations are for technical awards), and Scorsese's nod for Best Director is certainly justified. But as a movie-going experience I still think it's remarkably cold (lectures about film history don't really move me). For my money, it's still a race between the French silent film The Artist and The Descendants, starring George Clooney, who did get nominated and Shailene Woodley, who missed the cut. Which brings me to my next point:

Snubs? What snubs?
Okay, sure, Golden Globe nominee Woodley might be a tad disappointed, as might Albert Brooks (Drive), Michael Fassbender (Shame), Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin) and even Steven Spielberg, whose amazing animated The Adventures of Tintin didn't rate a Best Animated Film nod, and who wasn't on the Best Directors list, in spite of the fact that his War Horse is a Best Picture nominee. But are these omissions actually snubs? Not really.

Penélope Cruz & Javier Bardem Will Have a 'Super Baby,' Predicts Woody Allen

Penélope Cruz and her husband of just over two months, Javier Bardem, may be keeping mum on the topic of her pregnancy, but that's not stopping their friends from extending their good wishes.

On the topic of Cruz's recently evident baby bump, Woody Allen, who directed the sizzling couple in 2008’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona (for which Cruz won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar) joked, "I had nothing to do with it!"

He then added, "I think it's great. I'm crazy about both of them – Javier and Penélope. And I'm sure they'll have a super baby, because their genes are award-winning."

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, whose accomplishments already include supermodel, singer-songwriter, and French First Lady, has another impressive addition to her resume: actress.

Dressed in a white blouse and jeans, Bruni-Sarkozy stepped before cameras alongside Owen Wilson in Paris Tuesday afternoon in a film directed by Woody Allen. The scenes, shot around the Pantheon in Paris's fifth arrondissement, will appear in Allen's current project, Paris In Midnight.

"Carla and Woody got along incredibly well on the set," a source tells PEOPLE. "They talked constantly and laughed quite a lot between takes. Owen as well."

The source says Bruni-Sarkozy's first day of shooting lasted nearly five hours and included many takes. "They must have shot the same set up, where she walks along holding a baguette in her hand going into a supermarket ... around 32 [times.]"
