Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Search for Happiness

Emma Watson shared a photo from the Little Women set and dammit if it didn’t make me a little tingly.

Julie Andrews‘ granddaughter claims she had an affair with Dax Shepard in 2009 — two years after he started dating Kristen Bell.

Taylor Swift is using facial recognition software to detect stalkers at her concert like she’s in CSI or something, and I effing love this.

-The headline of NYT’s new profileEllen Degeneres Is Not As Nice As You Think” made me think they were diving into some of the blind items about her, but it turns out they’re just being cheeky.

-Meanwhile, I really like this article on how blind items have become more influential during the #MeToo movement and can kick off blockbuster investigations.

Cybil Shepherd says that she once declined Les Moovnes advances — and her show was promptly canceled.

walking-dead-death-spoiler

-I stopped watching The Walking Dead last year (best. decision. ever.) but Twitter went wild over last night’s big death. Also not impressed? The star’s dad, who slammed the showrunner: “Watching Gimple fire my son 2 weeks before his birthday after telling him they wanted him for the next 3 years was disappointing.”

-Meanwhile, Andrew Lincoln is talking about how his contract is up this season and has yet to be formally renewed for season nine.

-It’s been kind of amazing to watch stars like Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Justin Bieber, Hailee Steinfeld and more rally around that kid who was bullied. But now there’s controversy surrounding the boy’s mom following allegations that she’s made racist posts on Facebook. It does make you wonder why certain stories go viral — and others don’t.

-Last night word broke on Twitter that a celeb chef would be the latest famous dude to fall, with Anthony Bourdain adding “Monday is really going to suck.” Fellow chef Tom Colicchio tweeted “And no one should be surprised.” Then this morning came the news that Mario Batali has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women. His response: “Although the identities of most of the individuals mentioned in these stories have not been revealed to me, much of the behavior described does, in fact, match up with ways I have acted.”

-I seriously wish Tiffany Haddish was contractually obligated to be a talk show guest every week. Her story about dating a one-armed man slayed me. “Does he live with the X-Men?”

-The Golden Globe nominations are always weird, but there were some nutso snubs in this morning’s announcement. On the movie side, no Wonder Woman or The Big Sick or Tiffany Haddish. Over on TV, no Veep or The Leftovers — but Jessica Biel somehow managed to slide in there?

-Only five women have ever been nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Director in its 75-year history. This year, women were shut out once again. I really thought Greta Gerwig was a shoe-in.

This video of Alison Brie finding out about her GG nom on the set of Glow is pretty great.

-Netflix calling out the 53 people who’ve watched A Christmas Prince 18 days in a row is a bit squicky.  Not only does it reveal that they’re tracking us in a big brotherly way, why are they going after their (most likely) female fans? Squicky, I tell ya.

-Netflix revealed their end-of-year data, and you all watched a LOT of American Vandal. Which is odd, because I feel like it didn’t get a lot of coverage.

This X Files promo with the stars trying to explain Mulder and Scully’s relationship made  me laugh. (“I’d say were kind of back to where we were originally but without the unresolved sexual tension… Because we’ve already had sex.”)

-Previously.TV is doing old-school, Television without Pity-style recaps and I am SO HAPPY. (And I don’t even watch this show!)

-The trailer for Jessica Jones Season 2 looks wonderful.  It drops March 8, and all 13 episodes were directed by women.

The Stars Shine at the MET Gala

-I’m here for all the stars that brought it at the MET Gala last night. Yes, a lot of the looks were crazy but that’s the whole point. This isn’t the Golden Globes; this is an evening to celebrate avant-garde designer Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons and the theme was “Art Of The In-Between” so weird was good.  I especially appreciated the more crazy dresses after reading this Twitter thread about the mechanics of making them. My faves were Rihanna,  Blake Lively(!), and Tracee Ellis Ross. Also props to Celine Dion, who was clearly having the most fun. She pretended her shoe was a phone! God, I love her.

-Also, Sarah Paulson‘s reaction to seeing Madonna was perfectNicki Minaj also got her fangirl on over a bunch of celebs.

-Of course the Kardashian’s led the selfie rule break.

Hailee Steinfeld is not really dating Justin Bieber, in case you were worried.

Susan Sarandon blasted Debra Messing on WWHL for not being very informed? Sit down.

Liam Payne named his new baby Bear Payne. But wasn’t there some big 1D conspiracy theory about a gay bear? Is this a hint? What does it all mean?!?

-A tearful Jimmy Kimmel detailed his newborn son’s open heart surgery  during last night’s monologue and also slammed Trump’s health care plan, saying “No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life.”

-Jesus Christ. Apparently Johnny Depp no longer memorizes his lines, he has someone feed them to him via earpiece. Seriously, what’s it going to take for everyone to stop giving that guy a pass?

J.K. Rowling apologized for killing Snape. Uh, why? He stalked a woman who had no interest in him for years and tormented her child because it looked like the guy he lost her to.  I’m glad he got a redemption arc, but that character was trash.

The Big Sick trailer is here! This was Kumail Nanjiani‘s surprise hit of Sundance and I can’t wait to see it.
