-The Critics’ Choice Awards were last night, but I only caught the last 20 minutes. From what I saw, the red carpet was more exciting than the show itself. Allison Janney and Saoirse Ronan continue to kill it fashion-wise.
-Also, look how happy the little girl from The Florida Project looks with Angelina Jolie!
-The Mark Wahlberg story continues to unfold in horrifying ways. A source told USA Today that his contract included costar approval and “what he said was, ‘I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.’ And that’s how he (expletive) them.” Also it also seems like the initial justification circulating that Michelle Williams was contractually obligated to do reshoots and Wahlberg wasn’t isn’t even true, so it just gets worse and worse. This isn’t about how’s a better negotiator; this is about who’s a garbage person and who isn’t.
-He’s not the only one benefiting from the Me Too movement. Hollywood publicists are charging up to $30,000 in “project” fees to handle clients accused of harassment.
-Sources say James Franco is “in a bad place” following the allegations. Aw, muffin!
–Oprah Winfrey interviewed a few of Hollywood’s most powerful women—including Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, America Ferrera, Shonda Rhimes, and Tracee Ellis Ross—to discuss the impact of Time’s Up.
–Daniel Radcliffe broke his silence on the Johnny Depp casting controversy in Fantastic Beasts. He very diplomatically praised his Harry Potter producers, while wondering why his costar Jamie Waylett was dropped from the franchise for a weed offence.
–George Clooney will return to TV. Well, Hulu anyway. Close enough.
-Wait, Taylor Swift‘s new video is for End Game?, that crappy song with Ed Sheeran? Seriously, did everyone just forget that Gorgeous is also on that album?!
–Issa Rae might have turned down Drake at a Golden Globes party and now that’s all I want to talk about!
-Stranger Things’ David Harbour is a treasure.
-There’s more talk that Proud Mary being buried. A Thursday night screening in Detroit with 80 tickets pre-sold was reportedly cancelled by the studio an hour before showtime. That’s bananas.
-It sounds like Matt Smith got a little tipsy at James Corden‘s wedding.
-Here’s the first trailer for Hulu’s The Looming Tower starring Jeff Daniels and Michael Stuhlbarg.
