–Scarlett Johansson is calling out Ivanka Trump: “You can’t have it both ways. If you take a job as a public advocate, then you must advocate publicly.”
-Meanwhile, she stepped out with her estranged hubby last night.
-According to Us Weekly, Brad Pitt “smouldered” on the Lost City of Z premiere red carpet. I don’t think that word means what they think it does.
–Stephen Colbert had a very good opening monologue last night.
-The MTV Movie Awards have opened up the categories to TV, and it’s making the nominations really odd. Moonlight is competing against This Is Us for Best Tearjerker, while Best Hero pits Hidden Figures’ Taraji P. Henson against the stars of Arrow and The Flash. I do like that the gender divisions have been eliminated. When you’re making up awards, it’s a cool way to make them mean something.
-One of the Survivor tribes actually killed and ate a goat? Simmer down, guys. You’re on TV.
–Shia LaBeouf had a meltdown at a bowling alley. Who hasn’t, really?
-This is a great profile on Carrie Coon, Leftovers’ breakout star and Fargo’s new leading lady.
–Taran Killam doesn’t have many nice memories from Donald Trump’s SNL hosting stint last year. “What you see is what you get with him, really. I mean, there was no big reveal. He struggled to read at the table read, which did not give many of us great confidence. Didn’t get the jokes, really. He’s just a man who seems to be powered by bluster.”
-Looks like we might be getting a writers strike on May 2 if a deal not reached. If it happens, all writing for TV, films and streaming series will cease. Just pay the writers, Hollywood.
–Dwayne Johnson photobombed fans at Universal Studios and made a grown ass man cry.
-Will and Grace hasn’t even returned yet, and NBC has already ordered more of it.
–Alec Baldwin says his editors at Harper Collins missed typos in his memoir, so he’ll be releasing corrections and supplemental material. Bully for us.
-What it’s like to manage a celebrity’s money? Terrifying, apparently. “We try to rein them in. We go, ‘Do you really need a custom-made suit of armor for $50,000 that you’ll never wear?’ or ‘Do you really need to take care of the apartments and all the expenses of six different women in six different cities?'”
–Lena Dunham and the Girls cast starred in a Golden Girls spoof on Jimmy Kimmel Live and I don’t hate it.
-Yay, the trailer for the new season of Catastrophe is here. God, I heart this show.
