Norm Macdonald Has Passed Away

-Saddened and stunned by the news that Norm MacDonald has died at 61 “after a long and private battle with cancer.” There are a lot of clips floating around this afternoon, but the ones I keep seeing over and over are his moth joke, and his roast of Bob Sagat.

-Stars brought the fashion drama to the Met Gala last night. My faves were Tessa ThompsonElliot Page, and Lupita Nyong’o. See every single look here.

Keke Palmer killed it as the live stream host.

-It freaks me out how completely unrecognizable Hailee Steinfeld was at the gala.

Cara Delevingne is getting some heat because neither she nor the designer credited the person who coined “Peg the Patriarchy.”

Channing Tatum and Zoe Kravitz didn’t pose on the Met red carpet together, but they did leave together.

Nick Minaj tweeted her reason for not going to her 22 million followers: “They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now.” I would love to know what kind of research vax-hesitant people are doing that hasn’t already been done by the world’s leading experts and doctors.

-Congrats to Kate Hudson, who just got engaged and was not already engaged like I thought she was.

Jennifer Aniston was on Kimmel last night and said she’s skipping the Emmys because of covid. “This is still a big step for me just to be here. It’s just baby steps.”

Andrew Garfield told Jessica Chastain that their promotional campaign for The Eyes of Tammy Faye will be a ‘no-licky-pitty zone‘ after her viral red carpet moment with Oscar Isaac in Venice. (I saw the film last night and while I was a bit lukewarm on it, Chastain is for sure a lock for an Oscar nod.)

Alanis Morissette does not support the documentary about her that is currently at TIFF and will soon be on HBO. “I agreed to participate in a piece about the celebration of Jagged Little Pill’s 25th anniversary and was interviewed during a very vulnerable time (while in the midst of my third postpartum depression during lockdown)…I was lulled into a false sense of security and their salacious agenda became apparent immediately upon my seeing the first cut of the film.”

-Queen of Christmas Mariah Carey graces the December  digital issue of Elle. In the interview, she talks about why the season is so special to her: “After I kind of emerged from my first relationship-slash-marriage [to Tommy Mottola] I created the Christmases that I wanted to have. A lot of very bad stuff happened to me when I was 12. But also, there is the spirit of that kid, that fighter who doesn’t give up, who does embrace who she is, even though the world didn’t understand that from my point of view.”

Miley Cyrus gave another no-holds-barred interview to Howard Stern, saying that during the pandemic “I have a lot of Facetime sex” and that there was “too much conflict” in her marriage to Liam Hemsworth: “When I come home, I want to be anchored by someone. I don’t get off on drama or fighting.”

-Wow, Sasha Obama is gorgeous.

Kaley Cuoco and Margot Robbie might both portray Harley Quinn but they’re not feuding — cause they’ve never even met.

-I will buy the shit out of Jennifer Lopez’s skincare line.

-I saw Our Friend at last year’s TIFF and Jason Segel and Dakota Johnson were so good, I completely forgot about the Casey Affleck of it all.

Miley Cyrus’ Sad House Party

Miley Cyrus‘ walks through the depressing remains of a house party that’s winding down in the new “Slide Away” video.

-Twitter can’t stop talking about Timothee Chalamet and Lily Rose Depp‘s incredibly awkward kiss.

Hailee Steinfeld is in talks to play the lead role opposite Jeremy Renner in Disney+’s upcoming Hawkeye series. I’m surprised by how well this news seems to be going over on Twitter (especially among critics). Is she a lowkey Hollywood darling?

-I secretly love Medieval Times, so I’m got a lot of secondhand delight from watching Post Malone and Jimmy Fallon battle at one.

Prince Andrew continues to implode before our eyes — but apparently we’re only supposed to care that Meghan Markle went to the US Open.

Hayley Atwell joining Tom Cruise in next Mission: Impossible movie is fantasy casting for me.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Hot Priest gave out gin in a tin to people in line outside the Fleabag theatre this weekend.

-I’m not sure about Joker based on all the reviews. Do we really need a sympathetic origin story about a nice-guy-turned-mas- murderer right now? This tweet nails where my head’s at.

Joaquin Phoenix, who is in town for TIFF with Joker, made an appearance at St. George subway station today in support of an animal justice campaign “BeFairBeVegan.” He wouldn’t comment to reporters, though.

-Weird. Variety dubbed a video of Hustlers director Lorene Scafaria talking about how Fiona Apple is donating the money she earns from her song appearing in the film to refugees (the video Variety initially posted replaced the word “refugees” with “the movie”). After being called out, they reposted the video and called it a “glitch.”

-I really like this interview clip with Kristen Stewart on what sort of reactions she’s gotten since saying she was warned that she’d never get a Marvel movie if she came out. (I spotted her in the audience on Friday night with her gf at Jason Segel‘s film The Friend, which I don’t think she has a connection to.)

-I’m having a ridiculously good TIFF. Seven movies so far and none that I’ve hated. And I haven’t seen them yet, but people are losing their crap about how good Hustlers and Knives Out are. The only obvious flop so far: Nicole Kidman’s The Goldfinch.

-People also really loved The Lighthouse with Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe. The compliment I keep hearing is that it’s endlessly quotable (which you wouldn’t know from this trailer).
