-There’s so much I love about Vanity Fair’s annual Hollywood cover. The majority of actors featured are POC! It was shot by someone other than Annie Leibovitz! The ladies are fully clothed! Regina King looks amazing! It features Elizabeth Debicki — who should be getting wayyyy more buzz for her stunning turn in Widows! I probably would have switched out Nicholas Hoult for Brian Tyree Henry, who might have had the best year of anyone in Hollywood, but this is still pretty great.
-Millennium Films put out a statement confirming that Bryan Singer is going to keep his $10M Red Sonya directing gig even after yesterday’s exposé. The film will adapt a comic book character who becomes a great swordsperson after a group of mercenaries kill her family and their leader rapes her. And Singer’s the guy who gets to tell that story. So that’s just effing great.

-Only “Shallow” from A Star Is Born and “All the Stars” from Black Panther will be performed at the Oscars. The nominated songs from Mary Poppins, RBG or Buster Scruggs won’t make the cut.
