After 10 days of movie madness, the credits are set to roll on the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday.
The closing night film is “The Young Victoria” starring Emily Blunt. It’s from Quebec director Jean-Marc Vallee, who helmed 2005’s “C.R.A.Z.Y.” Festival awards are to be handed out during a luncheon ceremony at a downtown hotel. The winner of last year’s audience choice award, “Slumdog Millionaire,” went on to win the Academy Award for best picture.
Over 300 films were screened during the fest, which drew megastars including George Clooney, Matt Damon and Oprah Winfrey.

The tents at Bryant Park are being disassembled, and socialites everywhere are getting a foot rub. New York Fashion Week has come to a close.
This season brought bright colors and bold prints and even brighter, bolder celebrities.
From Lady Gaga performing at the Marc Jacobs afterparty to Mickey Rourke ogling “fat” models, stars—and the swarm of aggressive photographers that followed them—couldn’t be avoided. So, we did what we do best. We mingled with them!
Taylor Swift told us what she thought of the Tommy Hilfiger show, Mad Men’s January Jones explained Jon Hamm’s appeal, and Emily Blunt talked about her hands (you know, the ones with the big rock from John Krasinski). And that’s just the tip of the very swanky iceberg. Read more…

The ‘Young Victoria’ star is set to appear in ‘The Adjustment Bureau’ alongside Matt Damon and says that playing a ballerina will provide a new challenge for her.
She explained: “I’m going to dance boot camp. I’ll never be at the same standard as a professional, but hopefully I’ll be able to do a little bit.
“I didn’t do ballet when I was a child. I gave it up in some sort of bratty rage, claiming it hurt my feet.” Read more…

One esteemed critic has dubbed Brit actress Emily Blunt the next formidable female leading lady. Anthony Hopkins has the pleasure of playing opposite Blunt in next year’s The Wolf Man, also starring Benicio Del Toro. The experienced Hopkins was extremely impressed with Blunt’s work, rivaling comparisons to his Silence of the Lambs costar, Academy Award winner Jodie Foster.
Hopkins says Blunt, best known stateside for her scene-stealing role as the first assistant in The Devil Wears Prada, was a dream to work with. “Wonderful,” he raved. “One of the absolute best I’ve worked with. For me, it’s her and Jodie Foster. You just don’t get any better than that.” Read more…
