-After receiving two nominations for the 2022 Grammy Awards, Drake has withdrawn his nominations, and now are not visible on his artist page on the Grammys’ website. No one is really sure why, but he spoke out about The Weeknd’s snub last year.
-NY magazine’s profile on Succession star Jeremy Strong is an interesting read — mostly because everyone who’s quoted sounds like they don’t like him very much, which is unusual in a big profile like this. Usually you get some non-critical words from costars, even if it’s just about their talent or dedication if they don’t want to get into their personality. But it sounds like everyone thinks he’s a miserable presence on and off set. Is that why he’s so good in this role — because he’s just playing a version of himself?
-Meanwhile, I can’t quite believe that the ending of last night’s Succession is to believed, but if that turns out to be true, it’s gonna be a WILD finale this weekend.

-For Vanity Fair, Mo Ryan talked at length with Jeff Garlin about his HR investigations on The Goldbergs, and power imbalances. It’s rare to have a celeb be confronted with these types of questions and not walk away (though there were times he clearly wanted to), but I don’t love how often he dismissed the allegations as “my silliness” or “my process.”
-This is a very good piece questioning why Hollywood is still hiring raging anti-Semite Mel Gibson?
–Chris Noth weighed in on Kim Cattrall’s rumoured feud with Sarah Jessica Parker — and it sounds like he’s on Team Parker. “I do know that I’m very close with SJ and [Cattrall’s] descriptions of her don’t even come close. I liked her, I thought she was marvelous in the show and some people move on for their own reasons. I don’t know what hers were. I just wish that whole thing had never happened because it was sad and uncomfortable…I just don’t like to see anyone talking down about SJ because she’s a target and people can be nasty. I feel very protective of her and I was not happy about that.”
