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.

Meghan Markle reportedly told some children at today’s event that her due date is in April, and they’re not going to find out the gender beforehand.

Kylie Jenner has been beaten by a picture of an egg for the most-liked Instagram post ever. 2019 is already wild, y’all.

-Winter is coming — in the middle of April. HBO released a longer teaser and announced that Game of Thrones’ final season will premiere April 14.

-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?

Brad Pitt is hitting the Oscar trail for If Beale Street Could Talk (which I finally saw and LOVED). His Plan B production company is on quite a streak.

Miley Cyrusbirthday post to Liam Hemsworth is incredibly sweet. It’s weird how much I’m rooting for these two.

-Huh, all those blind items might be onto something. Tidal is under investigation in Norway over “fake streams.”

Travis Scott say he agreed to perform at the Super Bowl with Maroon 5 on the condition the NFL would make a $500,000 donation to his charity of choice (but people don’t seem impressed).

-It turns out that if you want to interest me in a Perry Mason reboot, putting it on HBO and casting Matthew Rhys is the lead pretty much does it.

-I love that Mindy Kaling retweeted this amazing thread of Kelly Kapoor as Pride & Prejudice characters.

-Speaking of great Twitter threads, I’m late to the game but last week HBO gave out Sopranos-inspired nicknames to any celeb/verified who asked for one, and it was amazing.

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.

John Legend Backs Up Rita Ora

-People are still really angry about the Rita Ora lipsyncing thing, so much so that John Legend had to jump to her defense.

-In a new IG post, Justin Bieber says he’s celebrating his first Thanksgiving “as a married man.” Meanwhile, his mom posted videos from Hailey Baldwin’s birthday party.

-Meanwhile, Ariana Grande used her Thanksgiving post to pay tribute to the late Mac Miller.

-Here’s a peek at other stars’ Thanksgiving celebrations.

Cam’ron is dissing Kanye West in a scathing new track.

-Wow, people are already hinting that Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger are getting engaged soon? That’s so fast!

Jada Pinkett Smith says she’s “not mature enough” to divorce Will “because when you have to start going in, breaking up assets, that right there…” Who says romance is dead?!

-Oof. Pirates of the Caribbean screenwriter Terry Rossio may have just tweeted himself out of a career with this vaccine post.

Gina Rodriguez is getting flack for saying that black actresses get paid more than Asian and Latina actresses. This isn’t the first time she’s seemed to step in it when it comes to talking about black women.

Nicole Kidman says hubby Keith Urban wasn’t a fan of her Destroyer character. “The character had to seep out of my pores and I didn’t know how to perform that, so I just had to live it. I was a bit of a nightmare!”

-She also talked about joining Instagram and posting about the giant spider she found by her pool in LA.

-I kind of love that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are still going strong.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might move away from Will and Kate to set up a home in Windsor instead.

-Have you watched the viral short about a guy counting down the days till xmas that’s making everyone cry today?

 

Emma Stone is Interviewed By Jennifer Lawrence for Elle

emma-stone-jennifer-lawrence-elle

-In her new Elle cover story, Emma Stone talks to BFF Jennifer Lawrence about social media (“I think it wouldn’t be a positive thing for me. If people can handle that sort of output and input in the social media sphere, power to them”), and panic attacks (“My mom always says that I was born with my nerves outside of my body. But I’m lucky for the anxiety, because it also makes me high-energy”). I’m glad this interview format is starting to get some flack (as Lainey says “is this becoming a trend? A sh-tty trend?”) Think of the best celebrity profiles you’ve read in the last couple of months, whether it was Taffy Brodesser-Akner on Gwyneth Paltrow, David Marchese on Quincy JonesE Alex Jung on Sandra Oh or Stephen Rodrick on Johnny Depp. There’s a level of distance and probing (be it rooted in admiration or skepticism) that you’re just not going to get from a BFF. As the Fug girls says, “having your friend interview you makes for a flabby and anemic profile at best.”

-In better celeb profiles, this GQ one on John Cho is great.  “You’re the only Asian not in ‘Crazy Rich Asians.’ Did you miss the meeting?”

-Crazy Rich Asians is set to pocket $5.3 million in tonight’s screenings alone. Fingers crossed it makes back its $30M budget in the first 5 days!

-Meanwhile, here’s an explainer on the CRA actors you may not know much about (yet).

-Speaking of new rom coms coming this week that I can’t wait for, Netflix’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is getting great reviews! Vulture says its “witty and sweet” and calls it “summer’s best rom com”, Indiewire says it’s infused with “charm and empathy” and Pajiba calls it “fun and winsome…a total treat and a perfect pick for a night of Netflix and Girls Night in.”

Priyanka Chopra‘s engagement ring from Nick Jonas (that will never not be a weird thing to type) is on full display in a new Insta snap.

Taylor Swift spoke at her concert about the anniversary of her sexual assault Trial verdict: “I just wanted to say I’m sorry to anyone who ever wasn’t believed because I don’t know what turn my life would have taken if somebody didn’t believe me when I said something had happened to me.”

-Outside of his court hearing, Liev Schrieber told reporters he did NOT assault a photographer. “I never touched him, I never touched his body with my body. I was pissed, but that was it. I have nothing else to say.”

Dane Cook hosted a  Q and A on Instagram and opened up about his relationship with Kelsi Taylor, a 19-year-old singer who is 26 years younger than him. Have some bleach handy so you can scrub your brain clean after reading about it.

Chris Pratt is still talking about James Gunn being fired: “We all love James …but we also really love playing the Guardians of the Galaxy”. You know what’s nuts? Gunn seemed to instantly realize his mistake and was like “yup, i screwed up and I’m outtie.” It’s the stars of GoG that won’t let it go.

-In a new interview, Glenn Close commented on Scarlett Johansson‘s trans casting controversy: “People who are producing and directing properties like that need to go out of their way to get trans actors jobs. But they also should have the opportunity to cast the best person.”

-Wondering when your fave TV show returns this fall? I got ya.

-I don’t think anyone was really excited for Colin Jost and Michael Che to host the Emmys, but their latest interview really cemented it. Good job, guys!

-In a wide-ranging interview, Jim Carrey revealed he doesn’t have access to his own Twitter account and has at least three people (“just pals”) sign off on every post: “When you’re in my position, it’s a really smart thing to have a buffer.” This system needs to be adopted by every celebrity, STAT!

-This illustrated ode to The Americans’ wigs is fire.

-A week after splitting from Cheryl Cole, Liam Payne was photographed looking cozy with a model.

Bella Thorne‘s first foray into makeup is not going very smoothly. She’s shilling ridiculously expensive, tiny eyeshadow palettes that may or may not rip off a black-owned beauty brand.

-I think I enjoy reading about HBO’s Sharp Objects more than I enjoy actually watching it. This article on its editing is great, as is this weekly updated piece on all the hidden words in the show.
