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.

The Queen Confirms Harry & Meghan’s Move to Canada

-This is an interesting deep-dive into the statement The Queen released today. “At 5pm, Buckingham Palace issued a 153-word personal message…that simultaneously tried to resolve a royal crisis and hold a family together.”

Prince William and Prince Harry released a joint statement Monday denying news reports about William “bullying” Harry and Meghan.

-Meanwhile, this is a pretty devastating roundup of 20 headlines that demonstrates how differently royal reporters treated Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle (not that Kate didn’t take her lumps in the press as well. But the tone was not the same by a long shot).

-Also, palace insiders are worried about Harry and Meghan giving “a full, no-holds-barred sit down interview,” which could be used to brand the monarchy as racist and sexist.

-So the Oscar nominations came out this morning and the snubs have overshadowed any pleasant surprises. No Jennifer Lopez, no Adam Sandler, no Greta Gerwig for director, no Awkwafina, no POC acting nods beyond Cynthia Erivo. The condensed award season may have rewarded recent theatrical runs and people who have been campaigning hard but not as long (i.e. – Kathy Bates over JLo) rather than films that came out earlier (Hustlers, The Farewell, Rocketman, etc). Though that doesn’t explain Once Upon A Time’s success this morning, which came out in July.

-Despite not nabbing a Best Director nod, Greta Gerwig’s statement on Little Women’s is super classy.

-Today’s Twitter exchange between Kathy Bates and Adam Sandler (who costarred together in Waterboy) was very cute.

-Also, this is a very good take on why Joker shouldn’t have been nominated — let alone be leading the pack.

-Well, this is an odd twist: model Gigi Hadid was among the 120 potential jurors called on Monday for the Harvey Weinstein rape trail.

-At least she’ll have a shoulder to cry on: she’s apparently been working on rebuilding her relationship with Zayn Malik one year after calling it quits.

-A cohost on The View just quit…and sadly it wasn’t Meghan McCain.

Gwyneth Paltrow posting “Thank god I can now say I have something in common with Zendaya” about the Tom Ford molded bust, and Ira commenting “Gwyneth…you’re both in Spider-Man” will never not be funny.

-The cast of Schitt’s Creek met Nicole Kidman last night on the red carpet and I’m so happy for them!

Justin Bieber joined Youtuber David Dobrik to surprise fans. The one who didn’t know that JB was there and said “Yummy is just NOT it” owns my heart.

Jennifer Aniston posted a new Friends reunion pic.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are set to return as Golden Globes hosts, thank gawd.

-Because Showtime is notorious when it comes to keeping shows long past their prime, Shameless has been renewed for an 11th and final season.

-Westworld unveiled its season 3 release date (March 15) with a new promo.

-The first Morbius trailer is here and it surprisingly features Michael Keaton reprising his role as Vulture, last seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Meghan Markle Sues UK Tabloid For Publishing Private Letter

-House Sussex is suing the Daily Mail over their terrible coverage of Prince Harry and (especially) Megan Markle and is paying for the lawsuit themselves. If they win in court, proceeds from the lawsuit will be donated to anti-bullying charities. Perfect timing, as the couple is currently on tour. Prince Harry penned a blistering letter about the lawsuit, saying “I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.”

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin‘s wedding ceremony in South Carolina last night had a photo booth — which means there are tons of pics on IG.

-So Felicity Huffman got a super sympathetic People cover? Huh.

-Supermodel GiGi Hadid was NOT having it when a YouTube prankster got up on the runway at the Chanel fashion show in Paris.

-There’s a shady report about Adele dating grime musician Skepta and I’m kinda here for it?

Angelina Jolie took her large fam to her movie premiere. They’re soo grown up!

-The press tour for Joker continues to disintegrate before our eyes. Todd Phillips seems to think SJWs are trying to ruin comedy: “Go try to be funny nowadays with this woke culture. There were articles written about why comedies don’t work anymore—I’ll tell you why, because all the fucking funny guys are like, ‘Fuck this shit, because I don’t want to offend you.’ It’s hard to argue with 30 million people on Twitter. You just can’t do it, right? So you just go, ‘I’m out.'” As gross as this is, it seems tailor-made to resonate with the type of dudes they keep insisting this film isn’t courting.

-I am very much looking forward to Amazon’s limited series Modern Love, and glowing reviews like this are only helping its case.

Selena Gomez wrote a powerful essay on the immigration crisis for Time magazine. “I don’t claim to be an expert. I’m not a politician, I’m not a doctor, and I don’t work in the system at all. I understand it’s flawed and that we need rules and regulations, but we also have to remember that our country was formed by people who came here from other countries. It’s time to listen to the people whose lives are being directly affected by immigration policies.”

-Here’s the 6 Underground trailer, starring Ryan Reynolds and Melanie Laurent and directed by (ugh) Michael Bay.
