Everyone ready for a brand-new year of making fun of celebrities with needy egos and too much money? In the latter category, here’s Will Ferrell at ‘The Spoils of Babylon’ premiere in L.A. sporting a suit knitted from his ‘Anchorman 2’ residuals. Looking good, Mr. Burgundy!

Not to be outdone, Kristen Wiig showed up at the ‘Babylon’ premiere in her own flashy frock, though she demurred at revealing its energy source

When the two stars inevitably came together, the resulting power surge knocked out streetlights on Sunset Boulevard for eight blocks

Also at the ‘Babylon’ event was beloved ventriloquist Edgar Bergen and his incorrigible little wooden friend Charlie McCarthy... Oh, wait, that’s former ‘Sixth Sense’ child star Haley Joel Osment and actor-activist Tim Robbins

In other news, actress Amy Smart showed off a little leg at the season-five premiere party for the series ‘Justified.’ Hubba-hubba!

Which of course lead to her fellow cast member Alicia Witt showing off a little midriff..

Which unfortunately resulted in ‘Justified’ cast member Walter Goggins showing off his new mail-order choppers to co-star Timothy Olyphant. Wil-bur!

Shift to New York, where ‘Girls’ cast regular Allison Williams broached red-carpet etiquette by using an iPad to search for photos of herself on the ‘Girls’ red carpet while she was still on the ‘Girls’ red carpet. Don’t be so desperate, sista!

No question the big draw at the ‘Girls’ premiere was the show’s creator-star Lena Dunham, who simply can’t take a bad picture

See what we mean?

Ms. D, you are truly an inspiration

Also in New York this week: The National Board of Review Awards, which prompted a red-carpet turn by former Saturday Night Live regular Will Forte. He was terrific as MacGruber, right?

Also at the awards fete was that fine Canadian Mike Myers. Remember how he made us laugh in those Austin Powers movies? Be-have!

And from the same event, here’s Jon Favreau. Remember when he was ‘so money’?


15 of 21

And here’s Leonardo DiCaprio and Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese. Remember when Marty was a foot or so taller?

The National Board of Review soiree also handed out an award to Leonardo DiCaprio, which he immediately dedicated to his dark Satanic masters

And when it rains awards in the Big Apple, it pours. Here’s Ethan Hawke arriving for the New York FIlm Critics Circle Awards. Dude, that scowling young-man pose doesn't work nearly as well when you’re 43


18 of 21

Also at the Critics Circle event was acting legend Robert Redford, who got stuck listening to rocker-actor Jared Leto’s reasons why he should receive an Oscar nomination for ‘Dallas Buyer’s Club’


19 of 21

Toward the same cause, Leto attempted to overpower the minds of media covering the Critics Circle Awards into supporting his bid for an Oscar nod.. ‘Repeat after me: Leto…Leto...’


20 of 21

‘Can you believe that crazy hippie?’ Redford laughed to Cate Blanchett. ‘He actually thinks he can hypnotize people into getting him an Oscar nomination?’


21 of 21

'Remember my name…Leto...’
