Stars Shine at Oscar After-Parties

-Once again, I liked a lot of celebs’ after-party looks more than their Oscar red carpet choices, including Gal Gadot’sFlorence Pugh’s, Greta Gerwig’s and Billie Eilish’s (who hung out with Timothee Chalamet). Other stellar after party looks included Hunter Schafer, Tessa Thompson, Rihanna, and Tracee Ellis Ross.

Adele also showed up to an after-party and she was barely recognizable. I mean, I hope she’s happy and healthy but this is drastic.

-ICYMI: here are our picks for Oscars’ best and worst dressed.

-I’m still in (happy) shock that Parasite won last night. The ranked ballot (which only applies to the Best Picture category) certainly helped; lots of people would have had to choose it as their top pick, but a lot of people would have had to have it as their 2nd or 3rd choice.

-I’m still not sold on the Parasite TV series, but this is intriguing.

Bong Joon Ho apologized to the Oscar engravers: “I’m so sorry for the hard work, there’s too many.” As Linda Holmes pointed out, this guy spent the awards season giving a master class on how to appear “humble-but-aloof, grateful-but-not-thirsty, honored-but-not-waiting-for-your-approval.”

-This is actually quite sweet. Shia LaBeouf was offered to present an Oscar. He said he would do it if he could share that moment with his Peanut Butter Falcon co-star Zach Gottsagen.

Camila Morrone attended the Oscars with bf Leonardo DiCaprio — and she wore a wedding dress.

-With the revelation that Brad Pitt likes Letterkenny, paired with him recently telling Marc Maron that he’s watched his comedy series multiple times, I’m now picturing him sitting at home and watching quirky, under-the-radar comedies all day.

-The Oscars telecast reached an all-time low rating, dropping sharply from last year. It did much better in Canada (proportionally).

-The night before the Oscars was the Spirit Awards, where Laura Dern was serenaded with her own song.

-Also at the Spirit Awards, Noah Baumbach thanked Adam Sandler for helping to fund his films.

Penn Badgley and wife Domino Kirke are expecting their first child together, and revealed they had suffered two miscarriages in a row.

Janet Jackson just announced a new tour. I don’t usually hit up stadium shows, but I saw her on the Unbreakable tour and she was amazing.

Beyoncé is working on something new and it somehow involves her mother’s art.

Chris Pratt got salty on Twitter. What would Jesus say?

-This is a great deep-dive into the trajectory of Margot Robbie, who’s managed to change her Hollywood destiny by becoming a producer.

Bill Nye dancing to Lizzo on the runway at New York Fashion Week is the purest thing you’ll see all week.

Lena Dunham Talks Pills and Pain

Lena Dunham is on the cover of UK Cosmo’s February issue, in which she gets candid about becoming addicted to the medication she was prescribed after her hysterectomy (“You’re not present. You’re not functional. One day, I looked around and I was lying in a bed in my parents apartment under two blankets, in the same pyjamas Id been in for three days, and I was like, This isn’t me. It wasn’t that I was suicidal. I felt nothing. I didn’t want to live”). She also recounts her attempts to move on from Jack Antonoff with a string of short-term relationships, including a guy who proposed with the lace of a Timberland boot while they were snowed in at her parent’s apartment (“I’d just had a hysterectomy, I’d broken up with my boyfriend, I was in the process of breaking up with my business partner – I had no business buying a pair of shoes, [let alone] getting engaged. Then I just went, ‘You know what? I’ve been dating since I was 15 years old. I’m allowed to take a break…I think it’s been 14 months now that I’ve just been totally single”).

-It took a few weeks, but Beyonce finally sent Kim Kardashian some Ivy Park clothes.

-Is Eminem trolling us about Grindr again — or is he queerbaiting for album sales?

Michael Strahan is talking about his tensions with Kelly Ripa again. “One thing I tried to do is have a meeting every few weeks with her. We met a few times, and that was fine. But then eventually she said she didn’t need to meet…can’t force somebody to do something they don’t want to do. Certain things that were going on behind the scenes just caught up.”

-It’s hard to tell because we’ve been burned by initial reactions to comic book movies before, but the buzz coming out of Birds of Prey’s first screenings is overwhelmingly positive.

BTS performed barefoot on The Late Late Show, much to my Twitter TL’s utter delight.

Ellen Pompeo is blasting TMZ for reporting on Kobe Bryant‘s death before the family could be informed, citing website founder Harvey Levin’s practices as an example of “white male privilege” and calling the outlet’s behavior abusive toward women.

Prince Andrew‘s camp is fighting back against US Attorney Geoffrey Berman‘s complaint that they’ve had “zero cooperation” from him in the Jeffrey Epstein case, saying “The Duke is more than happy to talk to the FBI but he hasn’t been approached by them yet…He is angry about the way this is being portrayed and bewildered as to why this was said in New York. It seems certain people are jumping the gun.” Sure, Jan.

-Did Adam Brody actually turn into Seth Cohen IRL? No complaints here.

-This is my week of saying goodbye to TV shows I’ve really loved. Arrow made me ugly cry last night, The Good Place wraps up tomorrow, and Bojack Horseman’s final episodes (which are getting great reviews) drop on Netflix on Friday.

Maisie Williams is in a musical Super Bowl commercial for Audi with a climate change message.

-Speaking of Super Bowl commercials, here’s Sam Elliot reciting “Old Town Road” for Doritos.  This is my kind of ASMR.

Rufus Sewell is warned some witches are trying to end him in the trailer for the Agatha Christie adaptation, The Pale Horse.

Robert Downey Jr. Makes a Little Boy’s Day

-A 10-year-old boy with autism who became verbal after getting an Iron Man helmet got to meet Robert Downey Jr. This is all incredibly sweet.

Beyoncé’s IVY Park x adidas fashion collection is about to drop online – and I’m loving how she recruited celebs to help spread the word. (I am NOT loving how I am officially too old to pull off anything from this collection.)

Kylie Jenner posted on Instagram “Don’t talk to me or my daughter ever again” — but no one knows who she’s talking to.

-People is reporting that Prince Harry will remain in the U.K. for meetings, prolonging his return to Canada.

-Interesting to see TV media stepping up to defend Meghan Markle.

-Not surprisingly, Gigi Hadid was dismissed from the Weinstein jury.

-I don’t watch Mindhunter but every TV critic I follow seems to love it. It’s probably not a good sign that Netflix released all the actors from their contracts. (If they decide to continue with the show, does that me renegotiating contracts? Cause that seems shady af.)

January Jones confirms she dated Bachelor alum Nick Viall after he slid into her DMs.

-NBC unveiled their new streaming platform Peacock. It’ll have a library of NBC shows and Universal movies, as well as new projects from Norman Lear, Amy Poehler, Will Forte and Mindy Kaling,

-I finally caught up on the CW superhero crossover and it was a convoluted, emotionally empty mess — but this cameo was insane.

-I really like this piece on the inception ending of Little Women. (There’s a debate if the end scenes can be interpreted as representing the ending of the book Jo wrote rather than the life she went on to lead.)

-Um, these Zoe Kazan comments are really something.

-They may have broken up, but Jessie J was spotted hanging out with Channing Tatum and his daughter.

-Here’s the trailer for romance drama Olympic Dreams starring Nick Kroll — the first ever feature film shot in an Olympic village. I listened to Kroll talk about its production and it sounded really cool (they shot it during the 2018 Winter Olympics).

The Lovebirds trailer has Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani playing a couple who are framed for a murder and decided to try to find the real killer. Oh, I’m gonna watch this one A LOT.
