Sounds like Vogue editor Anna Wintour has an inflated idea of her power in Hollywood. Not to mention the rest of the world.

But even so, we think the studios should be warned before their awards campaigning kicks into high gear.

According to a report on Radar magazine’s website,, the evil editrix has been bragging that she helped destroy V Life, Variety’s ill-fated, glossy spin-off after “Proof” Oscar hopeful Gwyneth Paltrow appeared on its October cover while also being Vogue’s guaranteed-to-be-exclusive October cover babe.

Wow. This could really get ugly. We just hope Nuclear Wintour doesn’t decide to kill the chances of awards-hopeful films like “Brokeback Mountain,” “Memoirs of a Geisha,” “The Producers” or “Munich.” And the makers of “Cinderella Man,” which is being released on DVD and rereleased theatrically in order to better snag an awards nod, better hope Anna never had a run-in with that phone-tosser Russell Crowe.
