Females Take a Backseat at the Grammys — Except for Blue Ivy

-The Grammys were last night and they were…weird. The red carpet was strangely subdued, the show’s best moments were from women but they were generally overlooked as the trophies were being handed out, and Kesha’s performance was transcendent but it highlighted just how much the music industry has ignored the Me Too movement. And then came the interview with Recording Academy president Neil Portnow who, when asked why there were so few female winners, had the gall to say that women have “to step up.” (Pink has already taken to Twitter to slam that comment.) He also said of the lack of Lorde performance: “There’s no way we can really deal with everybody.” Um, you had a Shaggy and Sting duet. But ok, then.

-The Grammys did, however, gift the world with this amazing GIF of Blue Ivy trying to get her parents to stop embarrassing her, and it was glorious. This photo of a bystander looking freaked out by being in Beyonce‘s presence is a close second.

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx looked very couple-y at a Grammys pre-party.

Kate Winslet now says she has “bitter regrets” about working with Woody Allen.

-Oh god. Diane Keaton just took to Twitter to defend Woody.

-Oh god, squared. Julie Delpy reportedly implied that blackness is easier than womanhood. Nope, nope, nope.

-Former Charles In Charge star Nicole Eggert has accused Scott Baio of unspecified impropriety when she was a teenager. She tweeted “Ask @scottbaio what happened in his garage at his house when I was a minor. Creep” and then added “It started when I was 14. Wasn’t a one time deal.” He’s denied any wrongdoing.

-I keep forgetting that Kirsten Dunst is baking a baby Landry!

Oprah is rocking a Gucci coat for the cover of InStyle’s March issue.

-The fact that Busy Phillips spent a large portion of her weekend trying to recreate the karma’s a bitch meme makes me love her even more.

-I only watched 10 minutes of Stana Katic‘s new show and though it seems good, the water tank scene freaked me out too much to continue. While doing press for the show, she broke her silence about ABC’s terrible treatment of her when Castle ended (after eight years as the female lead she was let go from the show at the end of the season, only for it not to get renewed anyway a month later). “I’m actually still not clear on the thought process behind the way that it went down… It hurt and it was a harsh ending.”

-The CW announced its Charmed reboot and original star Holly Marie Combs is not here for it. Shannen Doherty was a bit more positive, but hated that they’re calling it a “feminist” reboot as if the original wasn’t. She’s got a point.

James Franco was photoshopped out of Vanity Fair’s Hollywood cover at the last minute.

-Mark your calendars: Game Of Thrones’ next season will premiere in April 2019.

-Wait, so Justin Timberlake has already released three singles from his upcoming album? How did I miss two of them?

-This article about Dawson’s Creek’s anniversary and how the show redefined teen romance by moving away from the unquestionable belief that women belonged to men.

Nicole Kidman‘s hidden talent is eating bugs (which isn’t really a hidden talent at all. I can eat bugs — and have. I can’t recite all the US presidents in order like Dakota Fanning. Or fence like Greta Gerwig. Vanity Fair is getting really lax with the criteria for this series…)

-This Matthew Broderick story is perfect.

Tom Cruise watching slow-motion video of his own ankle breaking is oddly compelling.

-Just when I thought that I couldn’t like Black Lightening any more comes news that Jill Scott is joining the show as a supervillain.

Will Smith on YouTube is making my life. He buys fancy equipment for it! He spends his trip to Australia looking for Hugh Jackman and Margot Robbie (who aren’t there)!

-Speaking of Hugh Jackman, I haven’t seen The Greatest Showman because I once had to write an essay on PT Barnum for school and that guy was problematic af, but this video of Hugh crying during the rehearsal of the show’s big number is pretty swelling.

Alicia Vikander and James McAvoy fall in love in the Submergence trailer.

-Here’s the trailer for Unsane, Steven Soderbergh’s new psychological thriller starring Claire Foy. I’m sufficiently intrigued and/or freaked out.

George and Amal Clooney proved to be solid citizens by handing out headphones to their fellow passengers to apologize for having their 6-month-old twins on board.

-Look, Salma Hayek has been basically cancelled for me since she spoke over Jessica Williams. But she just shared her story with the NYT about how difficult Harvey Weinstein made life for her on the set of Frida when she refused his advances.  “No to letting a naked friend of his give me a massage. No to letting him give me oral sex. No to my getting naked with another woman. No, no, no … And with every refusal came Harvey’s Machiavellian rage.”

-Music mogul Russell Simmons has been accused of rape by three women, according to the NYT.

Jada Pinkett Smith took to Twitter yesterday to rail against Tiffany Haddish‘s lack of nominations, but Haddish doesn’t seem to mind it. “Thank all of y’all for your love and support, I don’t know or care much about snubs because I’m not nasty like that!”

Tom Hanks and Stephen Colbert have different opinions when it comes to decorating a Christmas tree. “Flashing lights? We’re not landing a plane.”

-The palace has confirmed that the royals have broken with tradition and invited Meghan Markle to spend the holidays with them, even though she and Harry aren’t married yet. She’s already mixing it up!

-Sophie Turner says that when the cast read the last episode of Game of Thrones, there was a standing ovation. We won’t know what she’s talking about for a few years, though.

Ansel Elgot just jumped on the “fake news” bandwagon. What a turd.

Jamie Foxx was on the Graham Norton Show, where he told a hilariously awkward story about running into his daughter’s friends at a club.
