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.

Gwyneth Paltrow Is a Forgetful Robot in Harper’s Bazaar

gwyneth-paltrow-harpers-bazaar

Gwyneth Paltrow is having quite a week for visuals, from her tragic Golden Globes dress to her vagina Goop poster, and now her liquid Tom Ford breast plate on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar. In the interview, she talks about befriending ex Chris Martin’s gf Dakota Johnson (“I love her,” Paltrow says. “I can see how it would seem weird because it’s sort of unconventional. But I think, in this case, just having passed through it iteratively, I just adore her”), staying friends with exes (“I’m friendly with Brad Pitt. I don’t have any really bad blood”), and her reaction to stumbling across her old films (“I vom. I gag. I hate it”). Hilariously, she also talks about how Proof is the last non-Marvel movie she’s starred in — forgetting that she did Country Strong five years after Proof.

-This is how Joaquin Phoenix chose to answer a polite, innocuous question backstage at the Golden Globes about his Joker process. Eff this guy.

-Congrats to Chloe Sevigny, who is expecting her first child.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry talked about their “beautiful” Vancouver Island holiday getaway with Archie.

Harvey Weinstein’s rape trial in New York City began this week, and he’s already getting in trouble with the judge for his constant texting. “Is this really the way you want to end up in jail for the rest of your life by texting in violation of an order?”

-BAFTA is getting lots of heat for their all-white acting nominations, so they blamed the industry instead of themselves.

-This Keira Knightley impression is very, very good.

-This doesn’t make me appreciate Tyler Perry’s work ethic; it makes me think he should hire a writing room.

Chris Hemsworth has donated $1 million to fight the Australian bushfires.

James Cameron unveiled some new art images for Avatar 2. Seriously, does ANYBODY still care about this franchise? I know the first movie broke box office records but it left zero cultural footprint. When’s the last time you heard anyone quote Avatar? Can you name any of the characters?

Rob Lowe says Netflix told him that Holiday in the Wild was a bigger hit than The Irishmen, which is hilarious if true.

-This is my least fave scene in A Marriage Story but I get why that one line resonates.

-The CW renewed all 13 of its current series: All American, Batwoman, Black Lightning, Charmed, Legends of Tomorrow, Dynasty, The Flash, In The Dark, Legacies, Nancy Drew, Riverdale, Roswell, New Mexico and Supergirl, plus the yet-to-debut Katy Keene. I’m so glad Legends eked out another season! (My guess is it will be the last one, along with The Flash and Supergirl). The CW’s lucrative Netflix deal expires this year, so rookie shows Batwoman and Nancy Drew will now move to HBO Max and CBS All Access, respectively.

-Oh god, there is a LOT of new TV shows to consume this year and I’m not ready.

-A teenager facing an unintended pregnancy and her cousin embark across state lines to get an abortion in the trailer for Never Rarely Sometimes Always.

Bill Hader and Rachel Bilson Are a Golden Couple

Bill Hader and Rachel Bilson confirmed they’re dating by walking the Golden Globes red carpet together. I know their relationship is still very new but I think I would die for them?

-In case you missed it, here’s Michelle Williams‘ excellent Globes acceptance speech, in which she advocates for abortion access.

-I know the Globes are ridiculous and tend to reward the stars who wined and dined the voters (hello, Taron Egerton!) but don’t discount how 1917’s big win positions it in the Oscar race. The Academy’s voting window is incredibly tight this year (only one week — the shortest ever) and closes tomorrow night. Voters who hadn’t yet watched their 1917 screener might feel the need to now after its big Globes boost.

-A year after she was spotted at a Globes after-party with Pete Davidson, Kate Beckinsale appeared to leave an after-party with Machine Gun Kelly last night. Gah, I love her so hard.

-InStyle’s after-party elevator videos are a hoot.

-My fave after-party shots: this Friday Night Lights reunion, the pic of Taylor Swift hanging off Hot Priest, and Joey King revealing the aftermath of Patricia Arquette accidentally hitting her in the head with her Golden Globe.

Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse‘s camps insist they are doing just fine despite the fact that he was seen leaving a Globes after-party with Lily-Rose Depp.

-ICYMI: here’s our picks for the Globes’ best and worst dressed.

-My fave part about Brad Pitt’s Titanic joke to Leo (or how he will now be forever known: LDC) is how Reese Witherspoon can be seen in the background explaining it to Jennifer Aniston.

Brad and Leo were on Marc Maron’s podcast, where Brad talked about how people are obsessed with his personal life. (“I’m just like trash mag fodder. I don’t know. Because of my disaster of a personal life, probably.”) I dunno. I think we could probably be talking more about how he was only allowed supervised visits with his kids for like, three years.

Rian Johnson says he’s working on a Knives Out sequel focused on Daniel Craig‘s Benoit Blanc character. Here for it!

-Only read this Terry Gilliam interview if you are in the mood to be consumed by rage.

-It sucks that NBC isn’t doing much to promote Zooey’s Extraordinary Playlist — premiering tomorrow and starring Lauren Graham, Jane Levy and Skyler Astin — because the reviews are pretty glowing.

-From DC to Marvel: Christian Bale is in talks to star in the next Thor movie.

This photo of Gwyneth Paltrow promoting her new Netflix show The Goop Lab raises a lot of questions: Why isn’t the word lab in quotes? Why is her face unrecognizable? Why is she standing in a vagina?!!??

The trailer is equally confusing (although “How can we really milk the shit out of this?” is the truest thing Gwyeneth has ever said in relation to Goop).
