Louis C.K. Steps In It…Again

-An bootlegged hour of audio from Louis C.K.‘s Dec 16th standup routine was leaked an it’s bad. Like stupidly, shockingly tone-deaf, ‘this man has learned nothing’ bad. He makes fun of kids who want to identify as gender neutral before launching into a diatribe against the Parkland survivors. (“You’re not interesting because you went to a high school where kids got shot. Why does that mean I have to listen to you? You didn’t get shot, you pushed some fat kid in the way and now I’ve gotta listen to you talking?”) It’s not that certain topics should be off-limits to comedy, but if you’re going to go there, can’t you say…something? This isn’t funny or probing or interesting; this is just bitter. Here’s a good take on the whole disappointing situation.

-Meanwhile, a Parkland survivor has responded to him: “Since you like making fun of me and other Parkland survivors behind closed doors, I’m right here if you want to talk. Just try to keep it in your pants, ok?”

-That ridiculous, weird video that Kevin Spacey released as soon as news came out that he’s being charged with felony sexual assault  racked up 4.5 million views in the first 24 hours (it’s currently over 8 million).  Meanwhile, despite reports that the case against him includes video evidence, he is reportedly planning to plead not guilty. Today, a judge denied Spacey’s motion that he be excused from appearing in court, which the actor claimed would “amplify the negative publicity.”

Spacey was also photographed wearing a “retired since 2017” hat, so he seems to be taking this super seriously.

-I haven’t gotten around to watching Black Mirror’s choose-your-ending Bandersnatch special, but apparently there are eight different possible results  (though there’s one ending that people seem to be loving more than the others).

-The Golden Globe promos with Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg are delightfully nonsensical.

Lena Dunham’s Apology Falls Flat

-Jesus. I’d read about Lena Dunham’s apology to Aurora Perrineau and it was bad enough, but the video is full on cringe. Owning your mistakes in public is great, but this whole thing just feels so performative and gross.

-The Golden Globe nominations were announced today, and while there were some great surprises (The Americans, The Bodyguard, Sandra Oh, The Good Place), I’m very bummed that Widows and Atlanta were shut out.

-Also, I don’t understand any of the movie categories. Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star is Born should be in the music/comedy category rather than Best Motion Picture Drama. And why is Green Book a comedy or musical?

-Also, people are not happy that Girl, the trans-hating movie from Belgium, got a nomination.

-Wondering why all the Hallmark holiday movies look so familiar? Most of them are shot in northern Ontario.
