Chris Pratt Is Engaged to Katherine Schwarzenegger

-Is anyone at all surprised by Chris Pratt’s engagement news? They’ve been subtly planting the seeds in the press for a while (pretty much shortly after they met at Justin Bieber‘s Zoe Church in L.A. ) Also, that photo he chose is so deeply unflattering.

-The Critics’ Choice Awards were last night, and I liked what some people wore there better than what they wore to the Golden Globes (Constance Wu, Charlize Theron, Sandra Oh), while I am very confused why some people (Julie Roberts, Amy Adams) basically did a repeat of what they wore last weekend.

-Also last night: Rami Malek finally got his moment with Nicole Kidman.

-The Critics’ Choice Awards handing Roma the big prize is upping its buzz. I’m still not a huge fan (it’s clearly a technical masterpiece but it also left me cold), but Guillermo del Toro’s Twitter thread on why he loves it is very persuasive.

-Speaking of HBO, last night’s True Detective premiere did way better in the ratings than I assumed it would.

-I loved that Kayleigh Donaldson’s Twitter thread outed an Instagram “influencer’s” scam conference and got the remaining dates shut down. (Donaldson hosts a really good industry podcast called The Hollywood Read if you’re looking for something interesting to stick in your ear holes.)

-Speaking of industry rumbling, the Academy is now fighting with its largest branch — SAG-AFTRA, who is calling out the Oscars for trying to prevent talent from presenting at other award shows using “intimidation.” Remember last year when the Academy added all those young, diverse voters and we had such hope? Between this and the hosting debacle, what happened?

Tom Hardy and his wife Charlotte Riley have had a baby boy –– but despite reports they didn’t name him after Forrest Gump. Whew!

Ryan Coogler sounds awesome. Women who worked with him on the set of Black Panther said he created an environment where they could “cut past any of the normal bureaucracy of male dominance.”

-There is a new movie coming out starring Mel Gibson and Sean Penn and I have never nope’d anything harder.

-In the Little Woods trailerTessa Thompson must return to the dangerous life she thought she’d left behind.

Gina Rodriguez cosmo

All of a sudden, I thought I was going to die, and people are taking pictures. It was horrendous”), and shares how dating fiance Joe LoCicero was a “new experience’ for her

Brie Larson has called off her engagement to Alex Greenwald after several years of dating.

-Does The Weeknd reference Drake’s secret baby in his new track?

-Jesus. Janeane Garofalo talked about Louis C.K. on a podcast and it was a mess. Around the 35-min mark she says: “Leave Louis C.K. alone. Enough with that. He’s been my friend since 1985 and I think he has suffered. When he performs at the Comedy Cellar and people get all irate…if nothing else, care about his daughters. If you can find no compassion for him (which I think you should), think about his how daughters who hear all of this stuff feel. Why don’t you leave him alone for them if you’re so women-empowering?” Then she goes on a rant about how everyone is misunderstanding what he did — even though he ADMITTED IT.

-You technically came out last year on Lifetime, but when Netflix picked it up for season two, it dropped the first season last season and now it’s suddenly found it’s audience, making it the latest beneficiary of the very real Netflix bump.

-Also, I liked this piece on You’s season finale (spoilers, obvs) and how the show is a ripe target for bad fandom and viewers who misread the show for their own ends, blithely ignoring that every character is supposed to be a loathsome monster.

-Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s return did great last night. It got its biggest ratings in two years, and improved on NBC’s timeslot by 50%.

-HBO is hop‌ing y’all will tune into True Detective on Sunday so that you can learn the Game of Thrones premiere date.

Noah Centineo is playing Riverdale star Camila Mendes‘ fake boyfriend in the upcoming Netflix movie The Perfect Date. Fake dating is my favourite trope!

-Meanwhile, Lana Condor admitted she and Noah Centineo have a ‘spark’ so they made a contract about their boundaries just like their onscreen counterparts in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.

Condor also appeared in Jimmy Fallon‘s high school musical skit alongside Bryan Cranston.

Amy Adams told James Corden about how she once annoyed Whitney Houston while working at The Gap: “She went back into the dressing room and requested anybody else.”

Timothée Chalamet was delightful on Ellen, where he talked about playing pranks on his mother and admitted he once locked his naked mom outside on a cruise ship balcony.

-Exactly how many projects does Jordan Peele have on the go? Here’s the trailer for his upcoming sci-fi comedy.

-A few days ago I posted the trailer for Little, starring Regina Hall and Issa Rae, and it looks so funny! But now I want to see it even more because I just found out that Marsai Martin, the little girl from Blackish, is an executive producer on the film (and is one of the leads), because it’s her concept! She also fired an agent who told her to “chill and take a break” when she was 10. I think I love her.

Jamie Dornan and Jemima Kirke‘s one-night stand gets complicated when she tries to DTR in the Untogether trailer.
