Taylor Swift Blasts Netflix

Taylor Swift called out Netflix’s Ginny & Georgia for what she called a “lazy, deeply sexist” and “horse shit” joke they made about her during season finale of the show. Not to defend the show (which is a mess), but the way that joke was positioned, we’re *supposed* to think it was cruel/below the belt, not that the show was endorsing the sentiment. But I’m sure Netflix appreciates the sudden free publicity…

-Last night everyone was supposed to be talking about the Golden Globes, but then CBS dropped two promos of Harry and Meghan‘s chat with Oprah, which stole the spotlight. Leading with O’s “Were you silent or were you SILENCED?” surely helped get it trending. And Meghan didn’t say a word in either trailer, making it harder for the British press to pre-emptively attack her.

-Meanwhile, The Golden Globes were a slog. Considering how smoothly both the Emmys and the Daytime Emmys were, I was surprised how clunky this was.

-A lot criticism surrounding Wandavision is about how the Avengers movies didn’t have enough Wanda in them for the audience to be invested in her for her own show, but the last episode went back in time to make emotional sense of the character.

Gayle King asked FKA Twigs why didn’t she leave her relationship with Shia LaBeouf, and she responded: “I’m not going to answer that question anymore because the question should really be to the abuser, ‘Why are you holding someone hostage with abuse?’ People say ‘Oh, it can’t have been that bad because else she would have left.’ And it’s like, ‘No, it’s because it was that bad, I couldn’t leave.’ ”

Viola Davis and Stacey Abrams had a wide-ranging chat about awards season, race and politics, with Davis saying: “I feel like we’re in a period where for me, I’ve had to harness my anger. I’ve almost had to compartmentalize it. I absolutely believe that this last year has driven home the point that we are in a war of ideology and ethos.”

-Is the little boy from The Princess Bride actually New Girl’s Nick Miller all grown up? I can see it.

-I adore this article on Barb And Star, Ted Lasso, and the refreshing trend of actual feel-good comedies that don’t make their characters the target of mean-spirited jokes but instead celebrate them for who they are. I have a million shows on my to-watch list, but I just restarted Ted Lasso instead because it’s exactly what I need right now.

Tom Cruise is now outsourcing his onset covid safety rants to robots.

-On THR’s podcast, Ben Affleck reflected on his relationship with Jennifer Lopez (“People were so fucking mean about her — sexist, racist.

He’d just say, ‘I’ve got two words for you: Harry Potter.’ And he became known for doing that.”

Everyone was so rude to us on the carpet, at the show. It was so bad. It was a horrible experience. You came up to me, ran up to me out of nowhere, and said ‘Oh my gosh, I’m really rooting for you.'”
