–Vanity Fair’s annual Hollywood cover is here and it’s pretty damn glorious. Everyone looks amazing but Ruth Negga is especially owning it, I think. (Also, they were clearly assuming Amy Adams would be nominated and Birth of a Nation’s Aja Naomi King would be a bigger deal.)
-The solo portraits and videos are great, too. I love Emma Stone‘s explanation on why she loves Nancy Meyers movies. “How did these women have these kitchens? We don’t know, because we don’t ask, because it looks breezy and like life is wonderful.”
–Scarlett Johansson and now-ex Romain Dauriac are presenting a united front post-split announcement, attending an art opening together last night.
–Shia LaBeouf was arrested after a self-identified Hitler apologist invaded his anti-Trump live stream. Say what you will about Shia, but he controlled himself pretty admirably. Saying “Hitler did nothing wrong” to a Jewish person could have gone wayyyy worse.

-Well, this doesn’t bode well: The Flash movie screenplay is reportedly getting a complete rewrite from a new writer.

-The more I see from Zendaya, the more I like this kid.

-In news that should surprise no one, Nina Dobrev will return in The Vampire Diaries series finale.
-In other news that should surprise no one, the director of Wayne’s World recalls clashing with Mike Myers.
–Roxane Gay continues to be my hero with her clapback game.
