Michelle Obama Nails Harry Styles in His 1D

-Twitter is going wild for a video clip from James Corden’s show that featured Michelle Obama hitting Harry Styles in the balls with a dodgeball, proving that sometimes the internet is made for good.

Hannah Gadsby goes no holds barred in her Variety interview, and it’s glorious. “Things that can f— off, or at least deeply reconsider their choices, according to Gadsby: A Star Is Born (“If I woke up and someone I met yesterday was just watching me, they would not have a straight nose”); colonization (“‘manspreading’ is the definition of civilization”); Game of Thrones”(“It’s a fantasy. There are dragons. Why are women getting raped?!”); Taylor Swift (“a can of Coke”).”

-We just got our first look at Greta Gerwig‘s Little Women adaptation and oh yeah, am I here for it.

-I deeply related to Jennifer Lawrence feeling ignored after pal Amy Schumer had a baby. She sent Schumer a series of texts  about The Handmaid’s Tale, and then jokingly blamed the baby when the comedian didn’t respond. “Are you asleep bc of the baby??? Are you asleep before 11?? Is this bc of the baby? Don’t make me resent the baby.”

-Yesterday, the Daily Beast released a story in which eight women accused Hollywood filmmaker Max Landis of emotional and sexual abuse, which follows years of rumours and social media chatter. Director Josh Trank then tweeted: “I 100% believe every word of this article about Max. I banned him from visiting principal photography of Chronicle, and I haven’t spoken to him since 2012.” Since the article broke, his managers have left him and MGM decided not to go ahead with his movie starring Idris Elba.

-Early buzz for Spider-Man: Far From Home is pretty positive.

Angelina Jolie has a new gig: journalist! She’s a contributing editor for Time and will pen monthly articles.

-This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman keeps hinting at a possible Pitch revival and if this doesn’t work out I’ll be really bummed.

-Womp womp. Linsday Lohan’s reality show has been cancelled and her Mykonos nightclub has reportedly closed.

-I never thought I’d say this — but I’m on Bella Thorne‘s side on this one. Whoopi Goldberg basically slut-shamed her for the release of her hacked nudes and blamed her instead of the creepy hacker.

-I saw Men In Black: International last week and as charming as Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth are, that this is a mess. Now I know why, thanks to this behind the scenes recount of all the drama. Sony considered turning it into a crossover with 21 Jump Street, and while they were filming the actors were getting new script pages daily, and Thompson and Hemsworth then hired their own dialogue writers.

-In happier Hemsworth news, him singing “Hurt” on the Endgame set is kinda perfect. He was also very cute on The Late Late Show, attempting to be a waiter.

-Yikes. A crew member was reportedly stabbed in the neck on the set of Anne Hathaway’s new movie.

-The trailer for season 3 of Glow looks great. Netflix has been on a real cancelling kick lately, but I hope this show sticks around a bit.

-The Television Critics Association nominations always reflect what I’m watching on TV way more than the Emmys, and this year’s batch is no different. The “individual achievement in a comedy” category is especially strong: Pamela Adlon, Bill Hader, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Natasha Lyonne, Catherine O’Hara, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

-I’m very here for Kirsten Dunst returning to TV in a quirky comedy.

-This Vulture article about romance author Sherrilyn Kenyon, who accused her husband of poisoning her, is a wild ride.

-Ewan McGregor and Jacob Tremblay revisit The Shining universe in the Doctor Sleep trailer.

Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph Talk Comedy, Bechdel Tests

-I honestly cannot wait for Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph‘s Netflix comedy Wine Country, and their Vanity Fair feature makes me even more excited.

Jennifer Lawrence and Adele delighted onlookers this weekend when they turned up to play drinking games at a gay bar in the West Village. I always forget that they’ve been friends for a while.

Barbra Streisand had to clarify her Michael Jackson remarks after the backlash, saying she feels ‘nothing but sympathy” for the victims.

-I thought the trailers were really iffy, so I’m surprised by the glowing reviews Shazam is getting.

Shane West attended his A Walk to Remember costar Mandy Moore‘s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, which warms my cold cold heart.

-Mel B confirmed she and Geri Halliwell had a brief fling during the Spice Girls’ glory days. “(Geri) is going to hate me for this because she is all posh in her country house and her husband, but it’s a fact. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it.”

Rosie O’Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck publicly feuded on The View, but in her new book O’Donnell admits to crushing on her cohost. “I think there were underlying lesbian undertones on both parts.”

-Netflix’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before was directed by a female, but a dude gets the sequel.

-The fifth and final season of Jane the Virgin debuts Wednesday and the reviews of the final batch of episodes are gushingly positive.

-Meanwhile, while Phoebe Waller-Bridge leaving Killing Eve, the reviews for season 2 aren’t as across-the-board positive as they were in the first season.

-I’ll never be brave enough to watch it, but I love that Jordan Peele‘s Us had a historic weekend at the box office.

-These two little kids did a cover of Radiohead’s Creep on The Voice Germany and I can’t stop listening to it.

-The rumours that Avengers: Endgame might actually be 3 hours long are gaining traction. FML.

-18 years ago today Bjork wore the swan dress to the Oscars. Never forget!

-Apple trotted out a bunch of big name (mostly white) celebrities to announce their new TV offering today — but we didn’t learn much. It will launch on Apple devices and smart TVs in the fall (meaning they’ll miss this year’s Emmy eligibility). It will be ad-free, VOD (everything downloadable), get new titles added every month, and also allow you to watch your other paid TV subscription services like Hulu and Amazon Prime. But there was no word on pricing, when each show will debut, whether all episodes of said shows will drop at once, etc. But hey, Oprah is doing a couple of documentaries and a book club for them so…yay?

-Also, it’s crazy that they didn’t show trailers for any of their new shows — just a quick sizzle reel even though series like The Morning Show, starring Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell, has apparently already filmed. And having Steven Spielberg there to shill for Apple’s new streaming service in light of his Netflix stance was beyond odd.

Legends of Tomorrow returns next week and I honestly can’t wait. This show is pure joy.

Lana Condor Talks About Her True Love — And It’s Not Noah Centineo

lana-condor-noah-centineo

-In her new Cosmo cover storyLana Condor admits she and Noah Centineo did nothing to stop those romance rumours, despite her having a longtime live-in boyfriend. But I wonder how much that was encouraged by Netflix during TATBILB’s press tour?

-Congrats to Jennifer Lawrence, who’s reportedly engaged to art gallery rep Cooke Maroney.

Bradley Cooper was refreshingly candid when he talked to Oprah about being “embarrassed” by his Oscar snub for Best Director. “I felt embarrassed that I didn’t do my part. I’ll work on that. I went, ‘Oh, gosh. I didn’t do my job.'”

-The Walking Dead has been renewed for Season 10, but there is a chance Danai Gurira may not return as negotiations have become more complicated since she became a superstar thanks to Black Panther. Meanwhile, Norman Reedus becomes No. 1 on the callsheet with a reported paycheck of $350,000 per episode on top of additional guarantees and advances in a deal that sources say could be worth anywhere from $50 million to $90 million. (That guy also hits the lucrative con circuit hard so he’s pretty much flush.)

In the new issue of British GQ, Armie Hammer (who might be Hollywood’s worst tweeter — discuss!) stands by his tweets that criticized celebrities’ selfie tributes to the late Stan Lee.

Hugh Jackman accidentally restarted his fake feud with ‘total f—ing a–hole’ Ryan Reynolds.

-Avengers: Endgame might clock in at 3 hours. Dear god.

Jennifer Lopez is performing a Motown tribute at the Grammys and people are not happy.

-I’ve been reading a bit of backlash about the third season of The Good Place and I just don’t get it. Yeah, the Earth-bound stuff wasn’t great and I’m not totally shipping Eleanor and Chidi (and I ship everyone!) but this was also the season that gave us the Jeremy Bearimy episode so I have no complaints.

-Just eat the damn pizza, Drew Barrymore.

-Here’s our first look at the Four Weddings and a Funeral reunion for Red Nose Day.

-Speaking of first looks, HBO just released a bunch of photos from Game of Thrones’ final season. I feel like I’m going to love Sansa this season.

-People’s cover story gives good press to Meghan Markle (which she can use after the trashing she’s getting in the British press — there was a headline yesterday about her being the cause of Harry’s baldness). People’s story has some new scoop, including how she leans on her faith and how everything went down with her father during the wedding.

Ed Westwick (who was accused by three women of sexual assault but prosecutors did not pursue charges) just landed a new gig. These men are Teflon.

-EW is doing a bunch of romcom retrospectives in time for Valentine’s Day. I’m not sure anyone needs a fond look back at He’s Just Not That Into You, but I really liked this piece about Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt getting together to re-watch (500) Days of Summer 10 years later.

-Celebs are getting in on the #FuckFuckJerry action and calling on people to unfollow their accounts.

-Here’s the first trailer for The Sun Is Also a Star. This book is on my bedside table and it’s one of two (alongside The Hating Game) that I pick up whenever I’m down because I can flip to a random page and it just brings the happy. So trust me when I say I do NOT want them to screw up this movie — and this trailer has me hopeful that they won’t. Yara Shahidi looks perfect; I’m less convinced about the Riverdale guy but I’ll give him a chance.
