Jennifer Lawrence Jumps on the Bennifer T rain

Jennifer Lawrence was on a podcast when the Bennifer news broke and lost her mind just like the rest of us. “Breaking breaking breaking f*cking news!”

-Meanwhile,¬†ARod’s latest Instagram post (which makes it look like he’s leaving empty seats at his dinner table for JLo and her kids) is embarrassing. Please continue.

Nicki Minaj called last year’s hit-and-run death of her father “the most devastating loss of my life.”

-Netflix is capitalizing on the success Bridgerton with a limited series that will tell Queen Charlotte’s origin story. It will be interesting to see if they actually lean into her race, since the main criticism of the series has been its handwaving away of racism.

Gillian Anderson will guest star on The Great, which might make me catch up on the show. I watched the first two episodes and liked it, and then promptly forgot about it.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Miranda Kerr and Katy Perry all trolled Orlando Bloom over his poncho photo. Wait until they realize the world is never going back to non-drawstring pants.

-Also, Orlando is now buddies with Prince Harry.

-Black-ish is coming to an end after eight seasons.

-I don’t watch Batwoman, but apparently the show has fumbled Ruby Rose’s departure.

-iCarly is back! The 13-episode season will pick up nearly 10 years after Nickelodeon’s original show ended.

-It feels like there’s a lot of new pop culture dropping this weekend — the Angelina Jolie’s firefighter movie on HBO Max, Amy AdamsWoman in the Window on Netflix (both getting a mediocre reception) and Ewan McGregor‘s Halston on Netflix (hated by critics) — but the only new thing that’s getting glowing reviews is Jean Smart‘s new comedy Hacks on HBO.

-I already never, ever want to hear the word “cheugy” again. Is Drew Barrymore¬†cheugy? Are you? Is it over yet?

-NBC are giving the Golden Globes time to “do the work” and get their house in order before the confirm they won’t air the show anymore.

-Production on Netflix’s star-packed Don’t Look Up was reportedly stopped today when Jennifer Lawrence was hit with glass in a stunt gone wrong. It sounds like she’ll be ok.

Ryan Reynolds, Diddy and David Beckham (who all own alcohol brands) are donating $1 million to bartenders — and made a hilarious video about it.

Lana Condor will star in and executive produce Netflix’s Boo, Bitch ‚ÄĒ a comedy limited series about a high school senior who, after years of playing it safe, decides to live an epic life … only to wake up the next morning and find out she‚Äôs now a ghost. I’m into it.

T.I. and Tiny’s reality show has suspended production following those sexual abuse allegations.

Van Jones was on The View today and it did not go well for him. At all.

-Legendary Canadian actor Christopher Plummer has passed away at 91. There are a lot of amazing tributes and clips being shared, but my fave is when he did a roundtable with George Clooney, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Tilda Swinton and Voila Davis, and he talked about why he’d never work with Terrence Malick again.

-Netflix’s¬†Malcolm & Marie¬†tries to build on Euphoria and turn director Sam Levinson into a bankable auteur. Judging by reviews, things aren’t quite working out as planned.

-Levinson addressed the film’s backlash in an interview with Esquire:¬†“There is this tendency amongst the establishment, and I mean white establishment critics, to categorize things and talk about them in a way that can sometimes speak to their own importance.”

-Here’s the first trailer for HBO’s docuseries¬†Allen v. Farrow.

Cardi B dropped a new music video and it’s the bright, shiny thing we need to kick of the weekend!

-In her THR cover story,¬†Shonda Rhimes talks about leaving ABC (she says her breaking point came when she tried to get an extra all-inclusive pass to Disneyland for a trip she took with her kids and sister and a high-ranking exec asked her “Don’t you have enough?”), talks about setting expectations with Netflix (“The first thing I said was, ‘You’re not going to get another¬†Grey’s Anatomy¬†‚ÄĒ not¬†Grey’s Anatomy¬†in a cornfield,¬†Grey’s Anatomy¬†on a baseball field or¬†Grey’s Anatomy¬†at an airport, that’s just not happening’ “), and the culture shock of being at the streaming service (“The reason I came to Netflix is because I wanted to be able to make television without anybody bothering me. And as long as I get to keep making television without anybody bothering me, I’m happy”).

Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo and James Gunn took to social media to defend Chris Pratt. So they suddenly showed up when a meaningless throwaway Twitter poll voted him the worst Chris, but stayed silent when Brie Larson was facing hate and brutal boycott campaign from fanboys for being Captain Marvel and advocating for diversity? Screw them.

-Welp, Quibi is dead. Jeffrey Katzenberg is calling investors to tell them he‚Äôs shutting the company down, sources tell the Wall Street Journal. They’ll likely blame it on the pandemic and not the atrocious rollout or the fact that we are at the saturation point with streaming services.

Jennifer Lawrence says her biggest regret about getting married last year is she didn’t have a big bachelorette party.

Dolly Parton sang a few lines of “Bury Me Beneath The Willow” on the Late Show last night and it made Stephen Colbert cry. I loved her reaction: “I better hush before you cry yourself to death and we can’t finish the show.”

-I loved this chat between Jamie Lee Curtis and Neve Campbell about their reigns as scream queens.

-Legally Blonde 3’s new release date has been confirmed. I’m skeptical we’ll be back in theatres by then, but you do you, Hollywood.

-The reviews for The Witches are in, and it sounds very, very bad. Too bad; I was ready to watch Anne Hathaway ham it up.

-Another movie that isn’t faring well with critics is Netflix’s Rebecca remake mostly because the film portrays the central relationship as straightforwardly romantic, rather than tragic or toxic. The fact that this is how they depict the last scene makes it clear they¬†had no idea what the book was actually about.

-Speaking of reviews, critics seem mixed on Borat 2. But the only thing everyone seems to agree on is the¬†Rudy Giuliani segment is unbelievably uncomfortable. Apparently he follows Borat’s “daughter” into a hotel room and it’s … not good. The screengrab that’s floating around Twitter looks bad enough.

Jared Leto will play the Joker in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, just in case you needed more convincing to skip it.

Scott Speedman has joined the cast of You for season 3. I’m really happy for him, but my heart won’t be able to take it if he turns into a murder buddy for Joe.

Jann Arden‘s sitcom is going to stream in the US on Hulu. Between this and her singing the Dawson’s Creek theme song when it hits Netflix, is this the year of Jann in America? Let’s hope! (She did a Cameo for my friend’s birthday this week and it was the best one I’ve ever seen.)

Ariana Grande and Adele stans are not happy because they don’t understand how Twitter works.

-Normal People star Daisy Edgar Jones has been cast as Kyra, the lead in the film adaptation of Where the Crawdads Sing. I still haven’t finished that book — not because it’s bad but just because it was too heavy for my brain in 2020.

-Netflix will campaign Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis in the lead actor and actress categories for their Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom performances. They’ll also submit Boseman for supporting actor in Da 5 Bloods.

-The first trailer for Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon is gorgeous.
