Game of Thrones Teases the End

-Entertainment Weekly dropped 16 collectible covers for Game of Thrones’ final season. The story details the biggest battle sequence the show has ever done as an “uneasy collection of allies” will fight the Night King and his army at Winterfell, and there’s talk that one on the final six episodes will be “a calm-before-the-storm entry” with “play-like intimacy” that features closed-door scenes between pairs of characters.

Luke Perry is dead at 52 after suffering a stroke. This one is a heartbreaker. Twitter is now flooded with celebs and journalists telling stories about how he was more lovely and grounded than you could ever expect from someone who got so famous so fast so young. 90210 was super important to me and people my age, and I crushed on Pike from the Buffy movie hard. And he had just gained a whole new generation of fans with Riverdale. Tragic.

-I really liked this tribute to Perry and his ability to play the ultimate fantasy boyfriend.

-As if this day couldn’t get worse for gen-xers, The Prodigy frontman Keith Flint was found dead at his home in Essex today of a suspected suicide.

-I guess I’m having an emotional day or whatever but the Queer Eye season 3 trailer made me tear up.

Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale were all over each other at a hockey game. That’s a lot of tongue.

Khloe Kardashian swiftly changed her tune about Jordyn Woods.

John Mulaney’s SNL monologue about New York was very, very good. Also, the “What’s That Name” skit  was legit funny.

-It’s lovely that Gwyneth Paltrow attended Chris Martin‘s bday party and all, but um…is she wearing pajamas?

-This is an interesting look at how Esquire lost the Bryan Singer story.

Sir Ian McKellen just gave a master class in apologizing.

-Good on Jaden Smith for helping bring clean water to Flint.

-This profile of Rob Delaney is both hilarious and moving. He’s incredibly open about the death of his two-year-old son and his worries about having another child soon after (“I knew that I would ‘love’ him. But I didn’t know if I would like him or bond with him, ’cause I didn’t know if I would be too afraid to”).

-Steven Spielberg ramped up his case against streaming sites like Netflix from being eligible to win an Oscar and people went after him HARD. And I get it; Spielberg’s statement came off as incredibly elitist (I especially hate the part where he seems to consider an Emmy Award as insubstantial as a Teen Choice — “Once you commit to a television format, you’re a TV movie. You certainly, if it’s a good show, deserve an Emmy, but not an Oscar”), it’s a really weird year to be praising Oscar-quality movies when crap like Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody did so well, his insistence of needing to see movies in theatres is undercut by the knowledge that most Oscar voters watch the nominees with screeners at home, and you can’t really deny that Netflix is opening up more types of movies to more types of people — including those who can’t go to the theatre due to expense, disabilities, etc. On the flip side, Speilberg’s critics are holding up Roma and Mudbound as movies Netflix was responsible for bringing to life but that doesn’t really track (both of those movies were bid on by numerous distributors and Netflix won), Netflix spent $50 million campaigning for Roma’s Oscar chances, and I am very concerned about the kind of monopoly Netflix is building and remain skeptical about how sustainable their business model is. The whole issue is incredibly thorny, and maybe giving Oscar-campaigning movies a limited theatrical run for a few weeks before it hits Netflix is the best of both worlds? I don’t know the answer but I do know that the blind stanning of Netflix during this debate surprised me.

-I cannot wait to watch HBO’s documentary on the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her scamming blood-testing company Theranos.

-The new trailer for Shazam has dropped. I’ve been in a theatre twice now when a trailer for this has aired and the audience didn’t laugh once. Not a peep.

Gwyneth Paltrow Talks Leaving Marvel, Fighting with Harvey Weinstein

-In her new Variety cover, Gwyneth Paltrow talks about how her new husband Brad Falchuk referenced Shakespeare in Love in his vows (“I hope this isn’t too personal but in my husband’s wedding vows, he actually said it’s no coincidence that I played this muse, because that’s who I am to him, and his perception is that’s who I am in real life. It was really sweet”), added more fuel to the rumours that her onscreen hubby Robert Downey Jr. dies in this spring’s Avengers: Endgame by saying it’ll be her last MCU movie, and says of her struggles with Harvey Weinstein, “He was a bully. I never had a problem standing up to him. I wasn’t scared of him.” Which, good for her I guess, but a lot of women who weren’t at her level didn’t have the luxury to stand up to him and not be destroyed.

-There are rumours that Armie Hammer might be the next Batman (which is the most boring choice imaginable) but he’s denying them. Or possibly negotiating through the press? It could go either way.

-Netflix officially got out of the Marvel business by cancelling The Punisher and Jessica Jones yesterday. The stars of those shows took to social media to thank their fans.

Emma Thompson, who had begun recording one of the voice roles in Skydance’s upcoming animated feature Luck, has quietly left the project because of concerns about working with John Lasseter, sources say.  That’s putting your money where your mouth is and I love her even more now.

Jussie Smollett’s hours on Empire have been cut back while everyone tries to figure out wtf is going on. Meanwhile, police are investigating whether he was seen with his alleged attackers hours before the assault.

Joe Alwyn has no plans to talk about his relationship with Taylor Swift in the press: “I don’t think anyone you meet on the streets would just spill their guts out to you, therefore why should I? And then that is defined as being ‘strangely private.’ Fine. But I don’t think it is. I think it’s normal.”

Kevin McKidd recounted his ‘tearful’ post-Golden Globes reunion with former Grey’s Anatomy co-star Sandra Oh: “We hugged for a long, long time.”

-Netflix is claiming that it’s “revealing” the viewership for shows like You, Sex Education and more, but this is all kinds of shady.  They say Sex Education is on pace to be watched by 40 million member households within its first month — but it’s only been airing for 12 days.

-Meanwhile, I just started watching Sex Education and it’s a delight.
