Helen Mirren thinks we should 'just give Saoirse Ronan the Oscar already'... it's The Dredge

All the best of the day’s celebrity filth.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt from the top to the very bottom.

Saoirse Ronan has been charming the pants off everyone this awards season. One person she can rely on for an Oscar vote? Helen Mirren.

The Academy Award-winning actress has reportedly told Woman’s Way that she is backing Saoirse for the Oscar.

Just give her the Oscar already. Because oh my word, Saoirse was absolutely astounding in that film. She’s outstanding in whatever she does. I’m a big fan. It’s incredible to have that much power and vulnerability and wisdom at her age, so, so young.  It’s really remarkable

High praise indeed!

Struggling with what to get for your other half on Valentine’s Day? Kim Kardashian has some, er, interesting ideas.

Don’t know what to get your fella? Kim recommends a Yeezy bomber jacket ($3,134), Beats x Fendi headphones ($1,200), Yeezy tracksuit bottoms ($585) and a gold chain (a reasonably $11, in fairness.)

When it comes to the ladies, meanwhile, Kim suggests a ring ($9,624), a box of macarons ($60), a fancy bra ($110) and a stone choker that frankly looks like a cat collar ($400).

Kim has also helpfully compiled a list of Valentine’s Day gift ideas for the, ahem, bedroom. For example: a board game called Let’s F**k, a stripper pole, a $10,000 bottle of champagne and… mesh handcuffs.

Is Jacob Tremblay the coolest 9-year-old ever? He might be if these impossibly slick/adorable dance moves are anything to go by.

Check him out on Ellen yesterday…
