Chris Pratt Is Engaged to Katherine Schwarzenegger

-Is anyone at all surprised by Chris Pratt’s engagement news? They’ve been subtly planting the seeds in the press for a while (pretty much shortly after they met at Justin Bieber‘s Zoe Church in L.A. ) Also, that photo he chose is so deeply unflattering.

-The Critics’ Choice Awards were last night, and I liked what some people wore there better than what they wore to the Golden Globes (Constance Wu, Charlize Theron, Sandra Oh), while I am very confused why some people (Julie Roberts, Amy Adams) basically did a repeat of what they wore last weekend.

-Also last night: Rami Malek finally got his moment with Nicole Kidman.

-The Critics’ Choice Awards handing Roma the big prize is upping its buzz. I’m still not a huge fan (it’s clearly a technical masterpiece but it also left me cold), but Guillermo del Toro’s Twitter thread on why he loves it is very persuasive.

-Speaking of HBO, last night’s True Detective premiere did way better in the ratings than I assumed it would.

-I loved that Kayleigh Donaldson’s Twitter thread outed an Instagram “influencer’s” scam conference and got the remaining dates shut down. (Donaldson hosts a really good industry podcast called The Hollywood Read if you’re looking for something interesting to stick in your ear holes.)

-Speaking of industry rumbling, the Academy is now fighting with its largest branch — SAG-AFTRA, who is calling out the Oscars for trying to prevent talent from presenting at other award shows using “intimidation.” Remember last year when the Academy added all those young, diverse voters and we had such hope? Between this and the hosting debacle, what happened?

-In the Little Woods trailerTessa Thompson must return to the dangerous life she thought she’d left behind.

CBS Paid Eliza Dushku $9.5M After Michael Weatherly Harassed her

-Aw man. I’ve loved Eliza Dushku since she played Faith on Buffy, and this NYT story on her harassment at the hands of Bull costar Michael Weatherly and the secret $9.5 million settlement that followed is horrible. He should have been fired immediately, and he most certainly should be fired now that it’s come to light.

In the interview, he talks about his early career and getting famous by playing an American. “I don’t like the term ‘black actor’ in the first place. I don’t understand what that is. When we talk about Benedict Cumberbatch, we don’t call him a ‘white actor’. When you speak about van Gogh, or any other painter, they’re painters; they use all the colours in the spectrum. They don’t use colours confined to where they’re from…I’m a British actor, but America made me who I am as a popular actor by playing an American. But it just turns out that my grandad on my mother’s side was born in Kansas City. So, am I allowed? Or not allowed? The debate thickens, do you know what I mean?”

Meaghan Markle and Kate Middleton were twinning today.

Taylor Swift‘s new $200 million record deal isn’t just huge for her — she used it to help out other artists. In the deal, she got the label to agree to distribute a cut of proceeds from any sale of its Spotify shares to artists, non-recoupable — meaning that they’d be paid even if they hadn’t earned back their latest advance.
