Stop Shipping Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt

Jennifer Aniston threw a 50th birthday bash this weekend and the guest list was insane (George, Amal, Gwyneth, Reese, Sandra, Kate, Orlando, Katy, Demi, RDJ, Courteney, Ellen, etc.) but the guest that everyone’s buzzing about today is her ex-hubby Brad Pitt. Not surprisingly, people from her camp are already shooting down talk of a reconciliation, pointing out that they only chatted briefly and “they definitely aren’t dating or on that path. They are friendly, but that’s it.”

-God, I could watch this video of Anne Hathaway shading James Franco for hanging her out to dry at the Oscars on repeat for a month.

Chris Pratt responded to Ellen Page‘s criticism of his church with a long-winded, poorly designed IG story.

-Congrats to Supergirl’s Melissa Benoist, who announced her engagement to former costar Chris Wood.

-Fleabag season 2 is starting in March.

-Hulu is delaying the third season of The Handmaid’s Tale until June, putting it out of Emmy contention. (They claim it’s not because of GoT, but come on.)

-Hulu also previewed the new Veronica Mars reboot, promising a more mature take.

-The official website for Captain Marvel (which is set in the 90s) looks like it was built on Angelfire and it’s total perfection!

-The BAFTAs took place in London this weekend, and Olivia Colman gave another perfect speech (“We’re gonna get so pissed later!”) while Cate Blanchett looked like she was collecting infinity stones.

Trevor Noah‘s thoughts on the Liam Neeson debacle are worth a listen.

-As part of her cover story with Justin, Hailey Baldwin answered Vogue’s 73 questions. It’s awkwardly stiff.

Chris Brown needs to stay the hell away from Cardi B. And, you know, everyone else.

-I really liked this profile on Roma’s Yalitza Aparicio, which challenges the fairy tale narrative that’s been building all season.

-Did Sean Penn really write a column about how Bradley Cooper should have been nominated for Best Director? Really?! It’s his FIRST movie! I would have rather seen Destroyer’s Karyn Kusama or Can You Ever Forgive Me?’s Marielle Heller get a nom before Cooper.

-Oscars is relegating four categories to commercial breaks, including editing and cinematography. You know, that things that actually make movies good.

-No surprise here: Bryan Singer‘s Red Sonja has been put on the back burner.

Lin-Manuel Miranda will guest star on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. He basically tweeted that show into survival, so this is lovely.

-It looks like Warner Bros is actually going to pull Friends from Netflix for their own streaming app.

-Did you miss the Grammys last night? Here’s the red carpet recap.

-Last night during the Grammys, we got our first look at Will Smith as the blue genie in Disney’s live-action adaptation of Aladdin — and it’s really, really bad. The teaser launched a million Arrested Development jokes.

Laura Dern‘s new Vanity Fair cover story is making me realize that the world needs more Laura Dern cover stories!

-Congrats to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who are reportedly expecting a fourth child via surrogate.

-Meanwhile, Kanye demanded a ‘public apology’ from Drake for following Kim on Instagram.

-Eww! Why is Drake partying with Chris Brown?! Bad Drake! Bad!

Tiffany Haddish apologized for bad set on New Year’s Eve. Realizing it wasn’t working, she reportedly cut her set short to drink some Ciroc with the fans who stuck around. Meanwhile, several comedians have jumped to her defense on Twitter, pointing out that bombing is pretty normal.

Pete Davidson returned to the public eye for a stand up set, in which he revealed that Louis C.K. once tried to get him fired from SNL.

-Meanwhile, I really liked Andy Richter‘s thread on Louis C.K. and his new comedic formula, as well as this take on how he’s trying to recast himself as a victim of political correctness.

-The rumoured 90201 “reboot” is not actually a reboot or revival after all. As it’s currently being shopped around, it’s actually an hour-long mockumentary-style dramedy that would find former 90210 cast members Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green and Gabrielle Carteris playing themselves which — maybe let’s just not?

-This is an interesting look at how Tom Cruise‘s wedding to Katie Holmes changed how people view Scientology.

-I love this article on how Celine Dion became cool (not that she wasn’t already).

Meghan Markle Goes Rogue

-As soon as I saw the photos and video of Meghan Markle‘s surprise appearance at the British Fashion Awards, I knew Lainey would lose it over the excessive belly-cupping. But were the stomach grabs and protocol-breaking dark nail polish her way of trying to send a message?

Jennifer Aniston said that when she first moved to Los Angeles, she lived in a haunted house with a ghost that hated her roommate. This sounds like a better premise than Friends…

-The Oscars might move ahead with no host — because clearly NO WOMEN EXIST!

-In completely unrelated news, the crowd who attended Amy Poehler‘s Smart Girls anniversary dinner was amazing.

-If the final season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend doesn’t make my top 10 list this year, it’s going to come really, really close. This gag reel is also a delight.

-To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and The Kissing Booth were Netflix’s most-rewatched original movies this year. I only contributed 27% of that.

-The reviews are in for Aquaman, and critics seem to think it’s a bit of an overlong mess, but a really delightful, fun mess. Huh.

-Taylor Swift attended her boyfriend’s movie premiere, but kept it on the DL.

-I really like this take on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Everyone raves about that show, but I didn’t make it through the first season. It felt like it was leaning into all of the worst things about the Gilmore Girls.

Jameela Jamil is still on the detox tea thing? I mean, ok I guess but this seems like low-hanging fruit.
