Lin Manuel-Miranda Takes His Mom (And Us) to the Oscar Luncheon

Matt Damon crashed Jimmy Kimmel Live once again.

Brad Pitt‘s World War Z sequel has been pulled from the release calendar after losing its director last year. Sounds like the sequel’s production is just as troubled as the original’s.

-TMZ claims that Beyonce wants to launch a line of Blue Ivy Carter products – from hair care to clothing, mobile devices to video games, and more. She’s 5 years old. And what have you accomplished this week?

-I watched a few of episodes of Santa Clarita Diet this weekend and didn’t love it — but I do love that they have Hal and Joanne from BodyBreak promoting it!

-SNL’s Weekend Update is the weakest it’s been in years, so of course it may be getting a spinoff.

-I love that Trump is so rattled over Melissa McCarthy‘s SNL impression of Sean Spicer. Now Rosie O’Donnell wants to play Steve Bannon. She should play Trump instead and *really* get under his skin.

-HBO’s John Oliver talks the new season of Last Week Tonight: “I think we’re very anxious to not make it all Trump, all the time.”

David Beckham’s email hack made not seem super scandalous to us non-Brits, but it does make him “seem like a whiny and insincere little man whose every move for over a decade has been influenced by an almost pathological desire to be knighted.”

Zosia Mamet was asked her opinion of the other characters on Girls and she did not hold back.

Evan Rachel Wood shared details of her bisexuality at an LGBT Gala.

-I haven’t caught up on Jane the Virgin but Twitter spoiled me on the big twist last night. I do appreciate that the showrunner wrote a letter to the fans explaining herself, though.

-The new trailer for The Americans is all about Paige.

-Here’s the first trailer for Netflix’s Iron First. I fear that I’m going to be lost because I didn’t finish Daredevil.

Claire Danes Talks MSCL, Body Shaming and Baldness


-I really love Claire Danes‘ new Allure cover story, where she talks about how fans still approach her about My So-Called Life (my top 3 show of all time, just behind Buffy and TXF), how she once burned all her hair off with a perm, and how she’s learned to accept her body: “I’m attractive enough. I can do the work I want to do. I’ve found a wonderful man who wants to make out with me. I’m good.”

-Ohhh boy. It’s great that The Hollywood Reporter gathered 6 actresses from all different age groups to talk about the pay gap in their new roundtable interview, but how did anyone look at this photo and not think “hmmm, we may have a problem here”? And their “mea culpa” about its whiteness after Twitter bashed them for it is laughable. I mean, they’re right that it reflects a disturbing lack of diversity among this year’s predicted Oscar hopefuls. But perhaps that’s something that should have been addressed in their story?

-Also, did Brie Larson forget that she actually got the part she’s lamenting here?

-In less problematic cover news, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt get cuddly for the cover of Vanity Fair Italia.

-The Ant Man gag reel is short but cute. Kinda like Ant Man.

-The season 2 trailer for Agent Carter has landed and I am so here for it! (And her killer red sunglasses.)

-This woman won a lunch date with George Clooney and is somehow coherent enough to talk about it without fainting.

-Just when I thought I had reclaimed my life, there’s more to the “Zola’s Road Trip with a White Bitch She Met at Hooters” story! I’m going to need at least four days to fully process this…

-People magazine skipped over Chris Pratt, Daniel Craig and Idris Elba to name David Beckham the Sexiest Man Alive?!?

-Now that the embargo has lifted, the early reviews are coming in for Michael B Jordan‘s performance in Creed — and they’re glowing.

Jesse Eisneberg wrote a piece about film critics for The New Yorker and film critics are supes unhappy with him right now.  (I thought it was funny.)

-Welp. A judge just granted a new hearing in the Serial case surrounding Adnan Syed.

-It’s cute that all the One Direction boys (except for Harry Styles) are fronting like they’ve never hooked up with a fan.

Rose McGowan (sort of) apologized for her rant against Caitlyn Jenner — while spelling her name wrong.

-Has Avril Lavigne moved on Ryan Cabrera? That headline would be so lit if this were 2006…

Nene Leakes appeared on The View — and then tweeted about how much she hated it.

-I only know Bella Thorne as the mean girl in The Duff, but if she keeps dropping thinly veiled blind items I’m going to join (start?) her fan club.

Joel McHale‘s The Soup has been canned (like soup).

Matthew McConaughey and Kate McKinnon are banter-ific in his SNL promos.

-I don’t hate the first trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War, mostly because it’s all about Emily Blunt, Jessica Chastain and Charlize Theron chewing scenery and treating Chris Hemsworth like eye candy.

-The Zoolander 2 trailer made me laugh a couple of times, so that’s something.

Vanity Fair’s Star Wars Issue Offers Lots of New Clues

Star Wars Vanity Fair cover

-May the 4th be with you, indeed. Vanity Fair’s new Star Wars photos solve the mystery behind Lupita Nyong’o and Adam Driver‘s  characters. Not sure how I’m feeling about Lupita’s character being purely CGI…

Gwendoline Christie as the Chrometrooper is totally badass, though.

-Also in the issue, J.J. Abrams reveals he wanted to kill off Jar Jar Binks. Who could possible object to that?

Sofia Vergara has broken her silence on the ongoing saga involving ex Nick Loeb and their frozen embryos.

-Here’s the first single off David Duchovny’s new album. While I was cringe-listening to it with my headphones on, my coworker asked why I was blushing, so that should tell you something…

-This story about how a lawyer fell in love with Michael Douglas’ son and smuggled drugs into prison for him is a good/crazy read.

-Ugh. Sleepy Hollow is dropping Orlando Jones. They totally misused that character in season 2 but that could easily be fixed. And that man understands and interacts with fandom like no other actor I’ve ever seen.

-If you ever wanted to watch Sean “Diddy” Combs have sex, his new NSFW perfume ad is for you. Also, what’s wrong with you?

-I, like the rest of the universe, saw Avengers: Age of Ultron this weekend, and while there was lots to like about it, I hated hated hated what they did with Black Widow. After her awesome introduction in the first movie, she was reduced to making googly eyes at a dude and sing “lullabies”? Super disappointing, especially since I expect more from Joss Whedon. This EW article sums up my issues nicely.

-Speaking of disappointing Joss Whedon news, he just quit Twitter. Sigh.

-In other blockbuster movie news, Harley Quinn and the rest of the Suicide Squad have been revealed — and the internet is underwhelmed. This is the second time in a week that David Ayer has tweeted out character art and been burned by it. 

-A Toronto woman saw Ricky Gervais trying to hail a cab and offered him a ride — which he took.

-Watch Justin Timberlake play a lime in this very strange tequila commercial. I…don’t get it.

-It looks like Amy Schumer is going to blow up the interwebs again with her 12 Angry Men bit, which debuts next week. Until then, her New Yorker profile is great.

Nikki Reed is posting cutesy pics from her Mexico honeymoon with Ian Somerhalder. The paparazzi is also helping out.

David Beckham finally got Instagram, and his first order of business was to post Spice Girl reunion pics. He’s a quick study!

-Just when you thought the Madonna/Drake kiss couldn’t get any weirder comes her comments about it.

-The Absolutely Anything trailer, starring Simon Pegg, is a total delight.
