Pete Davidson’s Triumphant Return

Pete Davidson‘s appearance on SNL this weekend was all kinds of wonderful. I love that he did it with his friend and former SNL writer John Mulaney, who knows a little something about substance abuse and anxiety.

-I can’t stop watching this video of Bryce Dallas Howard crying on command. What kind of witchcraft is this?!

-This is my favourite Keanu Reeves story of the week, but then again it’s only Monday.

-I’m highly skeptical of the Sun’s story about Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron dating, but man that would make for some juicy gossip. Especially since there’s been rumours of friction between Theron and Angelina Jolie.

-Meanwhile, homeowners who bought Make it Right houses in the wake of Katrina are suing Brad Pitt and the foundation for shoddy workmanship, who are in turn suing the architect in charge of the project.

Leslie Jones isn’t wrong to be pissed about the new Ghostbusters announcement. The way that it all went down definitely makes it seem like they’re trying to erase the last one.

-This is nice: Bon Jovi‘s restaurant is giving away free meals to furloughed workers.

Gillian Anderson is going to play Margaret Thatcher on The Crown. Between this and Olivia Colman on board to play Queen Elizabeth II, I might have to break down and watch this thing again.

-It didn’t take me long to stop following Noah Centineo on Instagram because his posts were killing my crush real quick, so I’m not super surprised by his defense of Logan Paul. Still gross, though.

-Here’s the first official image of Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding in Paul Feig‘s romantic comedy Last Christmas and I can’t wait to watch the crap out of this!

This thread about how the world treated Sinead O’Connor in 1992 is so worth your time (and will make you love Kris Kristofferson).

-I watched the Netflix doc on the Fyre festival this weekend, and the fact that Ja Rule is now trying to cast himself as a victim is rich.

-Also, if you watched it and were saddened by how the Bahamians were treated during the festival’s meltdown, consider donating to this GoFundMe for Maryann Rolle, who lost $50k of her personal savings in order to pay her staff when the fest organizers bailed. It’s already raised $140,071 of its $123,000 goal.

Russell Brand is in hot water after giving an interview in which he basically admitted to letting his wife handle most of the child-rearing duties.

-Ugh. While promoting Incredibles 2’s Oscar campaign, Brad Bird defended disgraced Pixar exec John Lasseter. “You’re navigating a world where men have acted a certain way for thousands of years. Way too late, but all of a sudden, they’re expected to change that on a dime and it’s necessary and it’s right. But it’s a little bit a gray area.” (Seems like a good time to revist this article.)

Millie Bobby Brown tries to make a connection in the new Godzilla: King of the Monsters teaser.

Judi Dench is accused of being a spy in the Red Joan trailer.

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.
