Summertime, especially June (July was a nonstarter) was awash with shindigs, like the MTV Movie Awards (a high point of the acting calendar); The BAFTAs (the TV ones); the Teen Choice Awards and the Emmy's. And something happened in Canada.

MTV Movie Awards: 'It was a night that allowed a herd of lollipopped heads totter up a red carpet. I'm talking to you Anna Kendrick, Samantha Harris, Nicola Peltz, Whitney Port, and Victoria Justice. And you, Miranda Cosgrove. You're not seven anymore, best leave the dress to swing of its own volition and perhaps start eating grown up portions, your legs are making me wince."
