-The Critics’ Choice Awards were last night, but I only caught the last 20 minutes. From what I saw, the red carpet was more exciting than the show itself.  Allison Janney and Saoirse Ronan continue to kill it fashion-wise.

-Also, look how happy the little girl from The Florida Project looks with Angelina Jolie!

-The Mark Wahlberg story continues to unfold in horrifying ways.  A source told USA Today that his contract included costar approval and “what he said was, ‘I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.’ And that’s how he (expletive) them.” Also it also seems like the initial justification circulating that Michelle Williams was contractually obligated to do reshoots and Wahlberg wasn’t isn’t even true, so it just gets worse and worse. This isn’t about how’s a better negotiator; this is about who’s a garbage person and who isn’t.

-He’s not the only one benefiting from the Me Too movement. Hollywood publicists are charging up to $30,000 in “project” fees to handle clients accused of harassment.

-Sources say James Franco is “in a bad place” following the allegations. Aw, muffin!

Oprah Winfrey interviewed a few of Hollywood’s most powerful women—including Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, America Ferrera, Shonda Rhimes, and Tracee Ellis Ross—to discuss the impact of Time’s Up.

Daniel Radcliffe broke his silence on the Johnny Depp casting controversy in Fantastic Beasts. He very diplomatically praised his Harry Potter producers, while wondering why his costar Jamie Waylett was dropped from the franchise for a weed offence.

George Clooney will return to TV. Well, Hulu anyway. Close enough.

-Wait, Taylor Swift‘s new video is for End Game?, that crappy song with Ed Sheeran?  Seriously, did everyone just forget that Gorgeous is also on that album?!

Issa Rae might have turned down Drake at a Golden Globes party and now that’s all I want to talk about!

-Stranger Things’ David Harbour is a treasure.

-There’s more talk that Proud Mary being buried. A Thursday night screening in Detroit with 80 tickets pre-sold was reportedly cancelled by the studio an hour before showtime. That’s bananas.

-Just when I thought The Good Place couldn’t surprise me more comes last night’s episode. Also, this interview with Jameela Jamil (who plays Tahani) is great. This was her first acting gig!

-It sounds like Matt Smith got a little tipsy at James Corden‘s wedding.

-Here’s the first trailer for Hulu’s The Looming Tower starring Jeff Daniels and Michael Stuhlbarg.

-And here’s the first trailer for Alan Ball‘s Here and Now, starring Tim Robbins, Holly Hunter, Sosie Bacon, Jerrika Hinton. Vulture calls it “HBO’s version of This Is Us.”

James Franco Talks Gay Rumours, Gawker in Rolling Stone



-According to Rolling Stone’s new cover story, James Franco is either the hardest working man in showbiz — or totally insane. Guess which one I’m betting on?

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan are making a dance competition show for NBC. I’d prefer it if was just a show consisting of them recreating their Step Up routine every week, but I’ll take what I can get.

-Speaking of dance TV, someone is making a Center Stage TV movie and oh my god what is air?!?

Alan Cummings continues to confuse me by posting adorable BTS photos from The Good Wife set.

-The Daily Mail’s interview with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s daughter and her new husband is very weird.

Justin Bieber is getting a lot of crap for cancelling meet and greets, but this seems totally reasonable to me. The only analogous situation I’ve seen is photo/autograph opps at a con, and I remember walking away from that experience thinking about how draining and difficult it must be for the celebrities. You’ve got people who paid a LOT of money to spend a total of 15 seconds with you, and there’s a lot of pressure to make those the best 15 seconds of their life.

Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t understand her kids’ math assignments. “When homework time [comes around], I’m such an a**hole.”

George and Amal Clooney are pulling out the big guns for Hilary Clinton by hosting back-to-back fundraisers.

-Meanwhile, George says that he’s “working on a prank that will end [Brad Pitt’s] career. If you take the time, if you’re willing to sit on one for a couple of years, and just plant the seed…there’s no rush.”

-The reviews for Batman v Superman are in, and they’re pretty dismal. I knew we were in trouble when Drew at Hitfix slammed it, since he’s the only critic I follow who still stans for Man of Steel. Even the reviews marked fresh on Rotten Tomatoes don’t sound especially glowing.

-Meanwhile, thanks to some very clever editing, Ben Affleck plays both Superman and Batman in a new fancut trailer.

-Those assault charges against Orange Is the New Black’s Dascha Polanco have been dismissed.

-This RuPaul interview is well worth your time, especially for the comments on why he’s never been on Ellen.

Jimmy Fallon played a perfect game of Catchphrase with delightful human beings Saoirse Ronan and Don Cheadle.

-Game of Thrones isn’t giving critics advanced screeners this year, but President Obama might have an in.

-The Love And Friendship trailer is hitting me right in the Austen-y feels.

-I just watched the new trailer for Deepwater Horizon and I have so many questions. Was this movie sponsored by big oil? Did Mark Wahlberg say “how’s it going” exactly the same as SNL’s “say hi to your mother for me” on purpose? What’s my girl Gina Rodriguez doing in this?

-Here’s the first trailer for Bridget Jones’ Baby. I dunno, guys. I just dunno.

Fox Plots Cory Monteith’s Exit from Glee


(I’m heading to the Maritimes tonight for an extra long long weekend, and I won’t be back until mid-next week. Until then, feel free to amuse yourself by watching the best Channing Tatum dance routine ever.)

-At the TCA today, the president of Fox said Cory Monteith‘s Finn will be written out of the show in the third episode, which will “deal directly with the incidents involved with Cory’s passing and the drug abuse in particular.” He also added that the sixth season will probably be the show’s last.

Penelope Cruz directed a lingerie commercial starring her sister and her husband, Javier Bardem.

-I have lots of complicated feelings about Officer Bennett on Orange Is The New Black. One one hand, I think we’re supposed to be leery of how he’s taking advantage of his power to have a relationship with an inmate. On the other hand, he’s sooo dreamy. This interview with the adorable actor doesn’t help.

Justin Bieber has taken to wearing a Guy Fawkes mask, which is the least disturbing thing about him these days.

-Meanwhile, Bieb’s BFF Lil Twist has been named in a battery report filed by a woman who claims the incident took place in Bieber’s house.

Miley Cyrus, please stop doing things like this. Whatever this is.

True Blood‘s Ryan Kwanten plays Marvel villain Venom in a new short film. That might be the worst New York accent I’ve ever heard, but he’s still a cutie.

Jennifer Aniston sat down with Chelsea Handler last night to debunk nudity rumours and talk bachelorette party plans.

-Meanwhile, if you want to watch Aniston talk about cradling balls, check out the new NSFW trailer for We Are the Millers.

-If you thought having Stephen King as a dad just meant enjoying awesome bedtime stories and Cujo residuals, think again. He made his kids read Anna Karenina out loud.

-The plot thickens in the Simon Cowell saga. He hasn’t commented on reports that he impregnated his best friend’s wife, but his friend just named Cowell in his divorce papers.

Aubrey Plaza has a girl crush on Amy Poehler. Who doesn’t? Did anyone see her on Hollywood Game Night last week? The only thing better than Amy Poehler is Drunk Amy Poehler.

Denzel Washington‘s wife said no to his first two marriage proposals. If only she’d said no to the third.

-Meanwhile, here’s a supercut of Denzel laughing.
