Michelle Obama Nails Harry Styles in His 1D

-Twitter is going wild for a video clip from James Corden’s show that featured Michelle Obama hitting Harry Styles in the balls with a dodgeball, proving that sometimes the internet is made for good.

Hannah Gadsby goes no holds barred in her Variety interview, and it’s glorious. “Things that can f— off, or at least deeply reconsider their choices, according to Gadsby: A Star Is Born (“If I woke up and someone I met yesterday was just watching me, they would not have a straight nose”); colonization (“‘manspreading’ is the definition of civilization”); Game of Thrones”(“It’s a fantasy. There are dragons. Why are women getting raped?!”); Taylor Swift (“a can of Coke”).”

-We just got our first look at Greta Gerwig‘s Little Women adaptation and oh yeah, am I here for it.

-I deeply related to Jennifer Lawrence feeling ignored after pal Amy Schumer had a baby. She sent Schumer a series of texts  about The Handmaid’s Tale, and then jokingly blamed the baby when the comedian didn’t respond. “Are you asleep bc of the baby??? Are you asleep before 11?? Is this bc of the baby? Don’t make me resent the baby.”

-Yesterday, the Daily Beast released a story in which eight women accused Hollywood filmmaker Max Landis of emotional and sexual abuse, which follows years of rumours and social media chatter. Director Josh Trank then tweeted: “I 100% believe every word of this article about Max. I banned him from visiting principal photography of Chronicle, and I haven’t spoken to him since 2012.” Since the article broke, his managers have left him and MGM decided not to go ahead with his movie starring Idris Elba.

-Early buzz for Spider-Man: Far From Home is pretty positive.

Angelina Jolie has a new gig: journalist! She’s a contributing editor for Time and will pen monthly articles.

-This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman keeps hinting at a possible Pitch revival and if this doesn’t work out I’ll be really bummed.

-Womp womp. Linsday Lohan’s reality show has been cancelled and her Mykonos nightclub has reportedly closed.

-I never thought I’d say this — but I’m on Bella Thorne‘s side on this one. Whoopi Goldberg basically slut-shamed her for the release of her hacked nudes and blamed her instead of the creepy hacker.

-I saw Men In Black: International last week and as charming as Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth are, that this is a mess. Now I know why, thanks to this behind the scenes recount of all the drama. Sony considered turning it into a crossover with 21 Jump Street, and while they were filming the actors were getting new script pages daily, and Thompson and Hemsworth then hired their own dialogue writers.

-In happier Hemsworth news, him singing “Hurt” on the Endgame set is kinda perfect. He was also very cute on The Late Late Show, attempting to be a waiter.

-Yikes. A crew member was reportedly stabbed in the neck on the set of Anne Hathaway’s new movie.

-The trailer for season 3 of Glow looks great. Netflix has been on a real cancelling kick lately, but I hope this show sticks around a bit.

-The Television Critics Association nominations always reflect what I’m watching on TV way more than the Emmys, and this year’s batch is no different. The “individual achievement in a comedy” category is especially strong: Pamela Adlon, Bill Hader, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Natasha Lyonne, Catherine O’Hara, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

-I’m very here for Kirsten Dunst returning to TV in a quirky comedy.

-This Vulture article about romance author Sherrilyn Kenyon, who accused her husband of poisoning her, is a wild ride.

-Ewan McGregor and Jacob Tremblay revisit The Shining universe in the Doctor Sleep trailer.

Zendaya Answers Vogue’s 73 Questions

Zendaya covers the June 2019 issue of Vogue, which also means she gets the 73 questions treatment. I like that she restricted the whole thing to her backyard instead of the usual house tour, but is so charming that it doesn’t seem like she’s shutting you out in any way.

Zendaya is also on the cover of Paper, where she says she has no desire to give up her music career for acting.

-I literally couldn’t contemplate winning a lunch with George and Amal Clooney. I think I’d have to study international affairs for six months to feel remotely qualified to open my mouth around them, and the whole thing would stress me out. But the video of George talking about it is super cute.

-This is awful: Miley Cyrus was trying to leave her hotel with Liam Hemsworth after a festival appearance in Barcelona and as she was fighting her way through the crowds to their car a dude grabbed her and tried to kiss her.

Tiffany Haddish says she’s retiring her white Alexander McQueen gown after wearing it to five events. I’m gonna miss it.

Kevin Spacey made a surprise appearance at his groping case hearing today.

-I liked Netflix’s Always Be My Maybe, but the very best parts involved Keanu Reeves. This intro scene is already so iconic that there’s already a Twitter account devoted to putting different songs behind it.

-Meanwhile, Keanu is reportedly in talks to join Angelina Jolie in Marvel’s The Eternals.

-It’s cute that Marc Anthony seems to get along so well with JLo and ARod.

-Don’t look to Joshua Jackson to start beating the Dawson’s Creek reunion drum. He said: “I had a great time. Mostly. I had a good time. 19 to 24, everything’s difficult, you’re all mixed up, you don’t know your place in the world yet. I would not go back there, no.”

-Congrats to Jay Z, who just became hip hop’s first billionaire.

-One of my fave TV writers @tvoti just came out as trans and wrote about it in relation to The Handsmaid’s Tale and it’s extremely powerful stuff.

-I gave up on it because of too much TV + little interest in watching any TV lately, but I dig this justification for why Whiskey Cavalier deserved a second season.

-I did force myself to start Good Omens this weekend because I adored the book — and it turns out the show is equally fantastic. The clincher for me was episode 3’s cold open, which only came together because Neil Gaiman realized he needed to give David Tennant and Michael Sheen more to do. It shows the two mains meeting at various major events in history, including Noah’s Ark, Jesus’ crucifixion, the first showing of Hamlet in the Globe, the French Revolution, WWII and more. Gaiman said: “When I got to Episode 3, I went, ‘Oh, Crowley and Aziraphale aren’t in this 50-page chunk,’ so I thought, ‘Well, I’ll do a mini-movie of Crowley and Aziraphale through time, and it will give Michael and David something to do.'”

-Also as I was watching it I saw someone tweet “Oh, this is a love story!” and it totally changed how I saw the show. Michael Sheen agrees.

-There is a very real possibility that for the first time ever, there will not be a single comedy from ABC, CBS, NBC or FOX among the best comedy series Emmy nominees.

-On the slim chance that you’re not totally done hearing about Game of Thrones, this is a very good video explaining how foreshadowing shouldn’t be misconstrued as character development when it came to Daenerys.

-Apple TV still hasn’t revealed when its streaming service is coming or how much it will cost, but they did drop their first trailer today. It’s for Ron Moore‘s alt-history space race series For All Mankind.

-I went to a movie this weekend and the Lion King trailer played before it, and I was like “how could they not use Beyonce‘s voice in this?!?” But today’s new trailer rectifies that, with her Nala character finally making an appearance.

Christian Bale and Matt Damon burn rubber in the First Ford v. Ferrari trailer.

Tiffany Haddish Weighs in on Game of Thrones

-This week’s Gay of Thrones features Tiffany Haddish and remains more entertaining than the show they’re recapping.

-Meanwhile, next Star Wars movie will be from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the guys behind Game of Thrones. I can’t tell if the timing of this announcement is terrible (because of how much everyone is hating on them this week), or the best they could do (because we may all be hating on them even more after Sunday’s finale).

-It looks like Jennifer Lopez‘s daughter might follow in her mom’s footsteps. Girl’s got pipes!

George Clooney says he once advised Ben Affleck to turn down the Batman role. “I actually did talk to him about it. I said, ‘Don’t do it. ‘It was only from my experience, which is, you know…He did great, though.”

Keanu Reeves is perfect and we must protect him at all costs.

-Disney’s disturbing consolidation continues. They now have full control of Hulu after buying out Comcast’s stake.

-The glowing reviews for Fleabag’s season two (which drops on Amazon Friday) don’t do it justice. I binged the whole season in a weekend, and it’s perfection.

-Here’s the trailer for the Party of Five reboot. I have concerns.

-Meanwhile, I’m pretty sold on the new 90210 show based on the new trailer.

-The cast for Cate Blanchett‘s upcoming FX show is stacked! (As if Cate weren’t enough.)

-I’ve dropped the CW superhero shows because there’s too many better shows to watch and too little time, but I caught last night’s Arrow season finale (which was basically the series finale cause it seems like next season’s final 10 eps will be a weird crossover setup), and holy wow did it get me right in the feels. What a perfect, beautiful scene to close out the show — both in the present day and 20 years in the future. Basically, this reaction video was me.

-Someone is adapting Eleanor & Park?!? I am both extremely excited and totally terrified that they’ll screw it up. It’s being produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B, so there’s hope.

Mel Gibson’s publicist is both ballsy and delusional — which I guess is a requirement to be Mel Gibson’s publicist.

-The latest trailer for The Dead Don’t Die leans into Adam Driver‘s deadpan delivery.

Angelina Jolie is magnificent in the Maleficent: Mistress of Evil trailer.
