Brie Larson Talks Becoming a Superhero in InStyle

Brie Larson Captain Marvel

-Captain Marvel is out in just a month and I feel like the Marvel publicity blitz is a bit slower than usual. But here’s Brie Larson on the cover of InStyle, which is hopefully just the tip of the marketing iceberg. In the interview, she talks about calling Jennifer Lawrence for some advice the morning after her Oscar win, and what it feels like to join the giant Marvel universe.

-Not surprisingly, Liam Neeson is in damage control today, telling GMA “I’m not racist” in the wake of his undeniably racist story.

-Meanwhile, the premiere of his new movie was just cancelled in light of his remarks. It’ll be really interesting to see if this controversy has any affect on its box office.

Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus may have reunited.

This photo that Priyanka Chopra posted of her and Nick Jonas chilling at home has everyone asking: who took this pic?!

-I dug this article about SNL’s Totino’s sketches. This bit from writer Sarah Schneider is especially great: “While we shot this, I developed a crush on Kristen Stewart…She was super personable. Sometimes hosts are very separate, and that’s fine. I was sitting, she came over and crouched and put her elbow on my knee to just, like, talk. And I was like, ‘I’m gonna leave my boyfriend.'”

Jasmine Guillory talks about being the first romance novelist chosen for Reese Witherspoon’s book club.

Angelina Jolie continues to do good work as an UNHCR Special Envoy. This week, she’s advocating for additional international aid while visiting the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh.

-Crazy Stupid Love is not a great film except for that perfect 20-min stretch that’s just Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling hanging out at his house. Here’s a look behind the scenes of the Dirty Dancing lift scene.

-I have yet to watch the Netflix doc Abducted in Plain Sight, but everyone on my Twitter TL is losing their poo over it.

-The Craft star Rachel True put fan conventions on blast for excluding her while inviting her white co-stars.

-I don’t know how I missed the new trailer for The Good Fight last week but it’s perfection!

John Boyega wants to make an Attack the Block sequel. What a coincidence! I want John Boyega to make an Attack the Block sequel.

Hugh Jackman becomes Big Foot’s buddy in new Missing Link trailer.

The Black Panther Cast’s Sexy Love Triangle

-The Black Panther cast made a sexy partner-swapping video last night and I’m dead. It killed me.

Chrissy Metz denied calling Alison Brie “a b*tch” into her microphone on the Golden Globes red carpet. It very well could have been “babe” like the cohost insists — the audio cuts off pretty abruptly after “she’s such a b-.” Brie posted a pic of them together with the caption “Nothing but love for @chrissymetz! Rumors can’t keep us down!”

Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale were spotted chatting at a Golden Globe after party, so of course everyone’s is assuming they’re a thing now.

-In case you didn’t hear it during the broadcast, here’s Emma Stone yelling “I’m sorry!” after the joke about Aloha.

-I don’t know what was weirder — that critically reviled films Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody took home the biggest awards (it would have made slightly more sense if Green Book won best drama and Bohemian Rhapsody won best comedy/musical), or that Bohemian Rhapsody’s credited director Bryan Singer wasn’t mentioned even once in the acceptance speeches. I guess they’ve decided their best path to Oscar glory is to pretend the film isn’t associated with an accused rapist?

Rami Malek fanboying over The Americans is a mood. He was also v. cute when he introduced himself to Lady Gaga, who I’m pretty sure had no idea who he was but seemed pretty polite about it.

-I wonder if Giuliana Rancic‘s awkward red carpet interview with Debra Messing was in retaliation for last year’s equally awkward red carpet interview?

-My favourite thing about last night’s Golden Globes was watching people discover the joy that is Olivia Colman. The first thing I ever saw her in was Tyrannosaur, which I still think about 8 years later. Also, her delivery of the line “With respect sir, move away from me now or I will piss in a cup and throw it at you” remains one of the best thing to ever exist.

-ICYMI, here’s our Golden Globes fashion recap.

-I love that critics are loving Sex Education, Netflix’s new British teen comedy starring Gillian Anderson that drops next week.

-Today in court, Kevin Spacey pleaded not guilty to groping a man in a Nantucket restaurant. The judge ordered the actor to stay away from the accuser.

Lena Dunham and her former producing partner Jenni Konner reportedly aren’t on speaking terms, possibly because of Konner’s continued support of Girls writer Murray Miller, who allegedly raped Aurora Perrineau. I rarely say this, but good on Dunham.

Melissa Joan Hart is denying making anti-Semitic comments on a podcast.

-Oh god. R. Kelly created a Facebook page in which he started targeting his accusers one by one. Luckily the page was shut down. Can he just go to jail already?

HBO’s latest sizzle reel features new Game of Thrones footage — including Sansa telling Daenerys through gritted teeth “Winterfell is yours, your grace” as Jon Snow, Jorah and Brienne look on.

 

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s Never-ending Wedding

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas Wedding

-If you thought you already knew everything about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas‘ wedding — you’d probably be right. But they’re still on the new cover of People and all over Hello!’s social media. Good for them for wringing every last cent from the festivities, I guess.

-Meanwhile, this tongue-in-cheek deep-dive into the validity of their relationship is hilarious. “Nicholas Jonas married into a fraudulent relationship against his will this past Sunday, December the 2, and I’ll tell you why I think so.”

-Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer looks amazing on the cover of Wonderland. I hope she becomes a huge star.

-Great forking news: The Good Place just got an early renewal for season 4, so maybe 2018 isn’t a total garbage fire.

-Meanwhile, here’s more scoop on who’s leaking all those stories from the palace.

-GQ interviewed a bunch of people about the late Anthony Bourdain and collected their stories, and goddammit the resulting article made me weepy. “He turned to Tony and said, ‘How far can you keep going? Where else can you go? You can’t go to the moon!’ And Tony goes, ‘Really? Why not? I’ll go to the moon and make an episode on the moon. I’ll go anywhere.'”

-The CW is developing a Jane The Virgin spin-off series that will be written by long-time show writer Valentina Garza and will involve Gina Rodriguez.

-Wait, Demi Moore allegedly has a secret girlfriend? I can’t believe I missed this until now!

-Netflix will reportedly pay WarnerMedia $100M in 2019 to continue streaming Friends (up from $30M). This is NUTS — especially because it will soon be available on another streaming site next year.

-BBC just announced that Luther will air on New Year’s Day. Perfect hangover cure!

-The big guns came out for Ryan Murphy’s Walk of Fame star ceremony, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson.

The latest has Timothee Chalamet and Emma Stone talking about dealing with rejection, Melissa McCarthy and Lupita Nyong’o discussing women in Hollywood, Charlize Theron and Michael B Jordan talking about the impact of Black Panther, and Lady Gaga and Lin-Manuel Miranda talking about writing Shallow.

-Variety’s list of 10 directors to watch for 2019 includes 6 women.

-People are loving the new Captain Marvel trailer. (Though I’m not quite sure why people are calling it a “course correction” because I loved the first trailer too.)
