Taylor Swift Blasts Netflix

Taylor Swift called out Netflix’s Ginny & Georgia for what she called a “lazy, deeply sexist” and “horse shit” joke they made about her during season finale of the show. Not to defend the show (which is a mess), but the way that joke was positioned, we’re *supposed* to think it was cruel/below the belt, not that the show was endorsing the sentiment. But I’m sure Netflix appreciates the sudden free publicity…

-Last night everyone was supposed to be talking about the Golden Globes, but then CBS dropped two promos of Harry and Meghan‘s chat with Oprah, which stole the spotlight. Leading with O’s “Were you silent or were you SILENCED?” surely helped get it trending. And Meghan didn’t say a word in either trailer, making it harder for the British press to pre-emptively attack her.

-Meanwhile, The Golden Globes were a slog. Considering how smoothly both the Emmys and the Daytime Emmys were, I was surprised how clunky this was.

Taylor Simone Ledward’s acceptance of late husband Chadwick Boseman‘s was the show’s emotional highlight.

Angelina Jolie‘s painting by Winston Churchill sold for $11.5M at auction.

-Comic-Con will remain a virtual event this year (hopefully they’ve figured it out by now, cause last year was a mess). Organizers are eyeing a smaller, in-person event in November.

-A lot criticism surrounding Wandavision is about how the Avengers movies didn’t have enough Wanda in them for the audience to be invested in her for her own show, but the last episode went back in time to make emotional sense of the character.

Ellen Pompeo insists they still don’t know if this season of Grey’s Anatomy will be its last. “We honestly have not decided. We’re really trying to figure it out right now.”

-Here’s the first trailer for Operation Varsity Blues, Netflix’s take on the college admissions scandal.

Gwyneth Paltrow: Still Not a Medical Expert

-In news that is no way shocking, doctors are urging people to ignore Gwyneth Paltrow’s advice about how to fight covid.

-Reply All’s Test Kitchen will no longer release the remaining episodes of the Bon AppĂ©tit-centered miniseries — which is a shame. Clearly, there were storytelling problems, but the POC employees who spoke out deserve to be heard.

-This is an excellent – if awkward – interview with the real-life white female film critic who is assumed to have inspired John David Washington‘s character to get so angry in Malcolm & Marie.

-I watched the Russo Brother’s Cherry starring Tom Holland the other night and … woof. Holland tries his best but it is a long, bleak slog.

-This oral history on the ending of Lost is a great read. Josh Holloway on the church scene: “We also got drunk, I think, while we did it. A little bit, you know, because we’re all celebrating. That was the last scene that we all did together. So we were slipping over to each other’s trailer and having a glass of wine, going back in and doing some more scene. It was great.”

It fell off my bed. My dog went nuts. I ran downstairs. I was telling my family, “I got the part! I got the part!”‘
