It’s the end of the year and in Hollywood that means two things: An endless run of movie premieres and the beginning of the awards-show onslaught. This week delivered on both promises, with debuts for P.S., I Love You, Atonement, and There Will Be Blood (where some of the Saturday Night Live cast, on a strike-related hiatus, reunited) as well as the 7th Annual Breakthrough of the Year Awards.
The Hilary Swank-Gerard Butler drama P.S., I Love You (out Dec. 21) starts somberly — the pair star as a couple torn apart by death — but you wouldn’t know it from the atmosphere at the movie’s L.A. premiere.
We’re missing them on TV, but they’re not missing each other: SNL castmates Andy Samberg, Rachel Dratch, and Amy Poehler gather at the New York debut of the Daniel Day-Lewis saga There Will Be Blood.
