Can Superheroes Save Us? Please?!


-Today is a pretty crappy day, but EW releasing a CW superheroes cover makes it *slightly* less of a vortex of suck.

-Hollywood reacted to the election on Twitter. (Spoiler alert: famous people are bummed too.)  Except for Azealia Banks, who continues to be a garbage person.

Michael Moore warned us all.

-At least Danielle Moodie-Mills’ amazing commentary during CBC’s election coverage has gone viral.

-ABC used last night’s mass meltdown to quietly drop the news that it has cancelled Conviction. It was a terrible show, but I feel bad for Hayley Atwell (who I saw yesterday on her way to the Toronto set — guess that won’t be happening anymore.)

-In happier news, The Hollywood Reporter released its 23rd annual Next Gen list. I don’t know most of these people. I’m old.

-Here is a photo of Idris Elba wearing the hell out of peacoat. It’s like he knew we’d need this today.

-Well, this sucks. The cute little kid from Lion (who is far and away the best thing about that movie) has been denied a visa to attend the LA and NYC premieres.

Mariah Carey and James Packer‘s prenup sounded super romantic: “No item of jewelry and/or personal adornment costing over $250,000 will be deemed a gift unless accompanied by, or promptly followed by, a writing specifically stating, ‘This is my gift to you.'”

-I chat about Prince Harry‘s smackdown of the UK press in today’s Toronto Star.

Eddie Redmayne says he ruined his Kylo Ren audition because he just couldn’t stop himself from using a ridiculous Darth Vader voice. (“I was trying again and again with different versions of my kind of “koohh paaaah” [Darth Vader breathing sound] voice. And after like ten shots she’s like, “You got anything else?” I was like, “No.”)

-I only got 41/50 on Vulture’s Gilmore Girls superfan quiz and I don’t even know who I am anymore.

-A legal expert tries to explain  Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s custody battle strategies.

-Not surprisingly, Kanye West reportedly remains protective of Kim Kardashian and doesn’t want her to rush back into the public eye after her ordeal.

Charlize Theron says Hollywood ageism is just a “cliche,” saying “Now that I’m 41 I work much more than 20 years ago.” Well, isn’t that nice for her?

-Am I the only one who’s spent an inordinate amount of time today watching Coach Taylor and Buffy inspirational speeches?
