John Cho‘s Searching also did well, nabbing the highest per screen of any movie this weekend.

-There is a lot of talk about the accent Awkwafina attempts in Crazy Rich Asians and whether she’s appropriating black culture. (I was surprised when I was watching her last night on the MMVAs that she doesn’t normally sound like that.)

-I want Angela Bassett to be my life coach.

-People have been dunking on Ethan Hawke all weekend for his quotes about how he doesn’t think superhero movies deserve praise, but reading the whole interview, I think that’s taking it wildly out of context.

Nicole Kidman is me that one time my mom was sick and I had to make the entire Christmas dinner on my own.

Sufjan Stevens’s musical tribute to Tonya Harding didn’t make the cut for the movie, but it’s still beautiful.

Fergie is talking about her past addiction to crystal meth.

-I really like Jane the Virgin’s Justin Baldoni. He’s super earnest and that usually bugs me, but for some reason it looks on him. Here’s a part of his TED Talk on supporting women.

-This NYT profile on Gabrielle Union is excellent, and she brings up a very valid point. “I think the floodgates have opened for white women. I don’t think it’s a coincidence whose pain has been taken seriously. Whose pain we have showed historically and continued to show. Whose pain is tolerable and whose pain is intolerable.” This video is incredibly powerful.

-It must suck to be Kate Winslet on this press junket, where she can’t help but answer questions about the film’s director, Woody Allen. Still, she’s got to be able to do better than this.

-Meanwhile, Dylan Farrow asks the tough question: Why has the #MeToo revolution spared Woody Allen?

WB Pulls The Plug on Justice League Junket

-There were a lot of eyes on the upcoming Justice League press junket. Would publicity try to put questions about Weinstein/Affleck‘s conduct on the banned list? Would journalists obey? Looks like we might not get to find out — the WB just cancelled the US junket. Well, that’s one way to get around it, I guess. It’s all up to you now, London journalists!

Lupita Nyong’o is the latest actress to come forward with her own experiences about Harvey Weinstein‘s advances.

-Now that Quentin Tarantino has broken his silence about Weinstein, what matters most is what he does next. Kevin Smith is donating his Weinstein residuals to Women In Film. Channing Tatum halted a movie he was set to direct and produce at Weinstein’s company. These are more than just statements about how men in Hollywood need to do better; these guys are putting money on the line. Will Tarantino?

Adam Scott and Ben Schwartz are here to shoot down all your Parks and Rec fan theories.

Scarlett Johansson organized a Hurricane Maria fundraising event with her Avengers co-stars.
