Gina Rodriguez Talks Anxiety, Engagement

Gina Rodriguez cosmo

-In her new Cosmo cover story, Gina Rodriguez talks about her anxiety (“It started coming, like, two years into Jane. I had my first panic attack at a sushi restaurant. All of a sudden, I thought I was going to die, and people are taking pictures. It was horrendous”), and shares how dating fiance Joe LoCicero was a “new experience’ for her

Brie Larson has called off her engagement to Alex Greenwald after several years of dating.

-Does The Weeknd reference Drake’s secret baby in his new track?

-Jesus. Janeane Garofalo talked about Louis C.K. on a podcast and it was a mess. Around the 35-min mark she says: “Leave Louis C.K. alone. Enough with that. He’s been my friend since 1985 and I think he has suffered. When he performs at the Comedy Cellar and people get all irate…if nothing else, care about his daughters. If you can find no compassion for him (which I think you should), think about his how daughters who hear all of this stuff feel. Why don’t you leave him alone for them if you’re so women-empowering?” Then she goes on a rant about how everyone is misunderstanding what he did — even though he ADMITTED IT.

-You technically came out last year on Lifetime, but when Netflix picked it up for season two, it dropped the first season last season and now it’s suddenly found it’s audience, making it the latest beneficiary of the very real Netflix bump.

-Also, I liked this piece on You’s season finale (spoilers, obvs) and how the show is a ripe target for bad fandom and viewers who misread the show for their own ends, blithely ignoring that every character is supposed to be a loathsome monster.

-Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s return did great last night. It got its biggest ratings in two years, and improved on NBC’s timeslot by 50%.

-HBO is hop‌ing y’all will tune into True Detective on Sunday so that you can learn the Game of Thrones premiere date.

Noah Centineo is playing Riverdale star Camila Mendes‘ fake boyfriend in the upcoming Netflix movie The Perfect Date. Fake dating is my favourite trope!

-Meanwhile, Lana Condor admitted she and Noah Centineo have a ‘spark’ so they made a contract about their boundaries just like their onscreen counterparts in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.

Condor also appeared in Jimmy Fallon‘s high school musical skit alongside Bryan Cranston.

Amy Adams told James Corden about how she once annoyed Whitney Houston while working at The Gap: “She went back into the dressing room and requested anybody else.”

Timothée Chalamet was delightful on Ellen, where he talked about playing pranks on his mother and admitted he once locked his naked mom outside on a cruise ship balcony.

-The reviews for Sex Education, Netflix’s new teen comedy starring Gillian Anderson, make it sound like a total delight. There goes my weekend!

Cara Delevingne says she has lost 50,000 followers on Instagram since slamming R. Kelly. She doesn’t seem to mind though, adding “Goodbye silence and backwards followers, hello confrontation and forward thinkers. It’s going to be a loud year xxx #MuteRKelly”.

-Exactly how many projects does Jordan Peele have on the go? Here’s the trailer for his upcoming sci-fi comedy.

-A few days ago I posted the trailer for Little, starring Regina Hall and Issa Rae, and it looks so funny! But now I want to see it even more because I just found out that Marsai Martin, the little girl from Blackish, is an executive producer on the film (and is one of the leads), because it’s her concept! She also fired an agent who told her to “chill and take a break” when she was 10. I think I love her.

Jamie Dornan and Jemima Kirke‘s one-night stand gets complicated when she tries to DTR in the Untogether 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.

 

Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg Preview Golden Globes

sandra-oh-adam-sandberg-golden-globes

-If their banter in this Hollywood Reporter interview is any indication, Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg are going to be a goddamn delight at the Globes on Sunday night.

Laura Dern‘s new Vanity Fair cover story is making me realize that the world needs more Laura Dern cover stories!

-Congrats to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who are reportedly expecting a fourth child via surrogate.

-Meanwhile, Kanye demanded a ‘public apology’ from Drake for following Kim on Instagram.

-Eww! Why is Drake partying with Chris Brown?! Bad Drake! Bad!

Tiffany Haddish apologized for bad set on New Year’s Eve. Realizing it wasn’t working, she reportedly cut her set short to drink some Ciroc with the fans who stuck around. Meanwhile, several comedians have jumped to her defense on Twitter, pointing out that bombing is pretty normal.

Pete Davidson returned to the public eye for a stand up set, in which he revealed that Louis C.K. once tried to get him fired from SNL.

-Meanwhile, I really liked Andy Richter‘s thread on Louis C.K. and his new comedic formula, as well as this take on how he’s trying to recast himself as a victim of political correctness.

-The rumoured 90201 “reboot” is not actually a reboot or revival after all. As it’s currently being shopped around, it’s actually an hour-long mockumentary-style dramedy that would find former 90210 cast members Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green and Gabrielle Carteris playing themselves which — maybe let’s just not?

-This is an interesting look at how Tom Cruise‘s wedding to Katie Holmes changed how people view Scientology.

-The reviews for True Detective season three are in — and they’re actually pretty good? Lots of critics are calling it a return to form after the terrible last season, and everyone is praising Mahershala Ali‘s performance.

Jennifer Aniston rang in the new year in Wyoming with Jason Bateman, Jimmy Kimmel and Sandra Bullock. I would watch that movie.

-I love this article on how Celine Dion became cool (not that she wasn’t already).

-The trailer for Netflix’s new series Sex Education, starring Gillian Anderson and Asa Butterfield, has arrived. This actually looks pretty great.
