Vanity Fair’s Hollywood Issue Wows Us

Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue Cover

-There’s so much I love about Vanity Fair’s annual Hollywood cover. The majority of actors featured are POC! It was shot by someone other than Annie Leibovitz! The ladies are fully clothed! Regina King looks amazing! It features Elizabeth Debicki — who should be getting wayyyy more buzz for her stunning turn in Widows! I probably would have switched out Nicholas Hoult for Brian Tyree Henry, who might have had the best year of anyone in Hollywood, but this is still pretty great.

-Millennium Films put out a statement confirming that Bryan Singer is going to keep his $10M Red Sonya directing gig even after yesterday’s exposé. The film will adapt a comic book character who becomes a great swordsperson after a group of mercenaries kill her family and their leader rapes her. And Singer’s the guy who gets to tell that story. So that’s just effing great.

David Tennant is launching his own podcast next week and his first guest will be his former Broadchurch costar and current Oscar nom Olivia Colman. Get in my ear holes!!

Jeff Bridges is teasing that his Big Lebowski character will return on Feb 3 — in a Super Bowl commercial.

-I can’t stop staring at this image that Julianne Moore posted on Instagram. Stun-ning!

-This interview with Catharine O’Hara is a total delight.

George Clooney responded to The Guardian’s op-ed that questioned his loyalty in helping Sudan with his own article.

Priyanka Chopra is back from her honeymoon and proving that being married hasn’t stopped her from pulling off bad jeans.

-Is it weird to get turned on by a promo image for a play?

-Only “Shallow” from A Star Is Born and “All the Stars” from Black Panther will be performed at the Oscars. The nominated songs from Mary Poppins, RBG or Buster Scruggs won’t make the cut.

-I’m pretty pumped for USA’s new Briarpatch show starring Rosario Dawson, which was written by one of my fave podcasters.

-The CW is sticking with what it knows. They just ordered spinoffs of Jane the Virgin and Riverdale.

-Everyone’s talking about the batshit ending of Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway‘s new movie Serenity so I went ahead and spoiled myself. Worth it.

-Go, Anna Wintour!

-I’m pretty much all the way out on the Handmaid’s Tale at this point, but Christopher Meloni and Elizabeth Reaser are both good gets.

-The trailer for The Umbrella Academy, Netflix’s new show starring Ellen Page, looks like an American version of Misfits and I’m kind of here of it. They even cast Nathan!

Best and Worst Dressed at the 2019 Golden Globes

 

The stars came out to honour the best in TV and film at the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. Unlike last year, when most celebs wore black in support of Time’s Up, this year’s red carpet was a sea of colour. White and tulle were the biggest themes, but the dresses we loved most had a bit more edge. Check out our picks for the best and worst looks of the night:

BEST DRESSED AT THE 2019 GOLDEN GLOBES:

Jen: Nicole Kidman looks like liquid sex in this slinky blood red merlot dress by Michael Kors. Nicole and I are fighting over the black hair bow (I hate it, she loves it) but this dress is an undeniable winner.

 

Nicole: Holy merde, Regina King came to win tonight! She is by far my best dressed in a glowing blush gown by Alberta Ferretti that shines on the carpet. So very beautiful with simple accessories and unfussy hair. The whole look is stunning.

 

Jen: Crazy Rich Asians star Gemma Chan brings high fashion to the red carpet in this gorg Maison Valentino Couture creation. And are those shorts underneath there?? Marry me.

 

Nicole: Taraji P Henson in a plunging velvet custom Vera Wang completely makes up for the Giambattista Valli disaster from last year’s Emmys. She looked absolutely amazing in this head to toe sleek look.

 

Jen: Lupita Nyong’o is radiant in blue sequined Calvin Klein. I love the unique neckline and the way it moves on camera.

 

Nicole: Fleabag and Killing Eve creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge is gorgeous in a red sequinned custom gown by Galvan London that fits perfectly. She lets the dress do all the work, keeping the rest of her look very simple. This is movie star style and I’m just tickled that she’s there for writing.

 

Jen: Keri Russell deserves to take home the hardware for her stellar performance on the final season of The Americans, but she already looks like a winner in this Grecian-inspired metallic Monique Lhuillier.

 

Nicole: I love Octavia Spencer‘s tea-length gown from Cristian Siriano. It’s supremely flattering and a different silhouette than we see elsewhere on the carpet.

 

Jen: I’m sure it’s going to end up on a bunch of worst lists, but I actually really dig this look on Julia Roberts. Her ethereal Stella McCartney top and crisp black pants make her look cool and relaxed AF.

 

Nicole: Thandie Newton is pure sexiness in this mirrored Michael Kors gown that shows glimpses of skin and clings to every curve. Like a lot of looks I love tonight, the dress does all the work and the really simple gorgeous hair pulls it all together.

 

WORST DRESSED AT THE 2019 GOLDEN GLOBES:

Nicole: Oh boy, I wish that Julianne Moore would go back to letting her pal Tom Ford dress her because Givenchy is not working for her. This is an absurd dress that tries to be too many things and ends up looking boxy and dowdy. Boo.

 

Jen: As soon as we saw Claire Foy’s Miu Miu gown, Nicole said that it reminded her of that scene in The Proposal when Sandra Bullock tries on the wedding dress and her boobs disappear. That about sums this up.

 

Nicole: What the actual hell, Alison Brie? How on earth did Taraji and Allison’s dresses come out of the same brain? Can I even call Allison’s outfit a gown? It looks like a bikini top under a sheer cover. Hard nope.

 

Jen: Lady Gaga is out of the shallows and off the deep end in blue Valentino. I get that it’s an homage to Judy Garland but the arms are ridiculous and there’s so much fabric on the train that it looks like she’s dragging curtains behind her.

 

Nicole: Jen and I actually fought over who got to pick Emily Blunt in Alexander McQueen as our best dressed until we saw the mess at the bottom of the gown. Why oh why couldn’t it be a simple column!? So close.

 

Jen: I adore Constance Wu and I want so much more for her than this underwhelming Vera Wang. The colour makes it look like support wear, and tulle is nobody’s friend.

 

Nicole: I’m all for simple tonight but man, Amy Adams is too austere in her teal Calvin Klein. She needs lipstick and a necklace, maybe a bow? Let’s get Tom Ford to dress her from now on, too!

 

Jen: The Good Place’s D’Arcy Carden is trapped in the bad place with this terrible gown. Puckered seams, unflattering colour, clashing straps. What is this??

 

 

Ryan Reynolds Continues to Win Twitter

Ryan Reynolds helped a teen get over her ex with some perfect Photoshop advice.

-I tend to really like Andrew Garfield, but he kind of stepped in it with this one.  “I am a gay man right now just without the physical act – that’s all.” Um, no.

Blac Chyna‘s is reportedly exploring legal options against Rob Kardashian after he posted nudes of her on social media yesterday. As she should.

-Meanwhile, Rob‘s family is reportedly “deeply disappointed and frustrated” by his actions. “They are ashamed the war has become a public spectacle and hurting the family name.” Guys, just let that sink in for a sec.

-Congrats to Patton Oswalt, who is engaged to Meredith Salenger. It may seem soon, but that dude deserves all the happy.

-This video of celebrities speak-singing The Spice Girls features Nicole Kidman, Riz Ahmed, Keri Russell, Milo Ventimiglia and more. It’s very cute.

-Vanity Fair digs deep into Johnny Depp’s financial crisis.

-Shocking report: Prince Harry is NOT leaving the royal family for love, despite OK!’s latest cover story.

Seth Rogen‘s Twitter interactions with his mother are hilarious.

Kesha released a lovely new song out and penned a deeply personal essay for Lenny. “I know that I was never abandoned by my fans, my animals, or my family, but when you are depressed — really, truly depressed — you feel like you have nothing.”

Rihanna and Hasaan Jameel have reportedly been ‘hooking up for a few months’ but managed to keep it on the DL until last week.

-Look, I love me a little Justin Baldoni from Jane the Virgin, but does the world really need a men’s talk show?  Because the place where men get to talk is basically called the world.

-How To Get Away with Murder’s Charlie Weber talks about falling in love with Liza Weil on the set.

-It looks like Taylor Lautner and Billie Lourd are dunzo.

-CBS’s statement on the Hawaii Five-O shakeup and how they made ‘large and significant’ salary offers is supposed to make to Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park look greedy for not accepting, but it just shows us how CBS has been paying them much less all along. The showrunner’s statement also tries to put the blame squarely on the actors.

Steve Yeun talks about life after The Walking Dead in this new Vulture profile. I heart him.

-I’m looking at this photographic evidence of George Clooney holding a bassinet and I still kinda don’t believe it? My mind is buffering.
