Wedding dilemma: Best Actress Oscar Favourite Natalie Portman can't decide location for ceremony

By Katie Nicholl

Glowing: The pregnant actress is a hot favourite at tonight Academy Awards ceremony, but plans for her wedding ceremony are not going as smoothly

Natalie Portman is favourite to win the Best Actress Oscar for her role in Black Swan but she is having less luck with her wedding plans.

The 29-year-old star and her French boyfriend Benjamin Millepied, 33, met on the set of Darren Aronofsky’s psychological thriller and are expecting their first child this summer.

But friends of the actress, who was born in Jerusalem before her family moved to the United States, say the couple are torn over where to hold the ceremony.

Paris is their first choice but Natalie’s parents would rather have it in the US or Israel,’ says a friend.

‘Natalie is close to her mother and father so she feels duty-bound to agree. Her plans are still up in the air.’

Madonna's new flick tipped to be royal hit

Madonna, who is hosting a post-Oscars party with Demi Moore, has been telling everyone that W. E. – her forthcoming film about the affair between King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson – is set to become a major hit.

‘Madonna was saying the film had a three-minute screening at Berlin and within minutes it had secured syndication around the world, which is unheard of for an uncompleted film,’ says a source.

‘Everyone was expecting her to make a flop but it seems she may be spot-on.’

Anne Hathaway's geek chic

Has reading the Autocue taken its toll on Anne Hathaway’s eyesight?

When I caught up with the 28-year-old actress she was wearing oversized glasses and sporting the new ‘geek chic’ look.

Anne arrived for dinner having just finished rehearsing at the Kodak Theatre ahead of tonight’s ceremony, which she is presenting with James Franco.

While she wouldn’t say if she actually needs to wear glasses, the Devil Wears Prada star clearly enjoyed the attention she was getting.

‘I love them,’ she told a guest over a glass of Grey Goose Le Fizz.
