Today’s lesson in red carpet photography is that photos of pregnant actresses sell very well. As a result, all the photographers in the media pit at the Elgin Theatre kept shouting, “Show off that belly!” when Vera Farmiga stepped on to the red carpet. Bonus points: her husband, Renn Hawkey, showed up and rubbed her belly for the cameras. The couple knows how to work it.

Speaking of knowing how work a photo-op, Keanu Reeves dodged traffic to get to the other side of Yonge Street, where fans stood behind barricades waving copies of The Matrix on DVD. This is the first time we’ve seen a celebrity pull a Frogger for his fans. All this hometown boy needs to do to win us over now is shave that patchy beard.
