THE MOVIE MAY BE SILENT, BUT THAT FACE SPEAKS VOLUMES. (IT SAYS, “GIVE ME ALL YOUR AWARDS.”)

 

Happy Monday! Here’s our compendium of pop-culture news you may have missed while you were doing more important things over the weekend.

• The SAG Awards happened. Big winners included your usual suspects: your Jean Dujardins, your Viola Davises, your Christopher Plummers. Also, Boardwalk Empire and Betty White. That’s nice. [Deadline]

• Here’s the cover art for Madonna’s new single, “Give Me All Your Luvin’.” [Popdust]

• There is no way Michelle Obama actually went to Agent Provocateur with the Queen of Qatar and spent $50,000 there, right? When Michelle Obama needs sexy underthings, there must be some White House person whose job it is to buy them, right? [The Cut/NYM]

The Grey (working title, Liam Neeson Fights Wolves) opened at the top of the box office this weekend, with $20 million. Underworld Awakening held on at number two with $12.5M, and One for the Money, Red Tails, and Man on a Ledge finished out the top five with between $8 and $12M each. [BOM]

• Michael Vick is reportedly trying to follow in the size-15 footsteps of Amar’e Stoudemire—he’s apparently been asking around for Fashion Week invitations, to little avail. Confidential to Michael: fashion people have catfights. Maybe you misheard. [P6]

• Former T editor and current AllDayEveryday guy Horacio Silva has launched a new mobile site, which the man himself describes as “like Grindr for rich people.” [WWD]

• Oprah and Barbara Walters are reportedly duking it out to be the first TV journo to interview Pippa Middleton. [DM]
