Chris Pratt Is Engaged to Katherine Schwarzenegger

-Is anyone at all surprised by¬†Chris Pratt’s engagement news? They’ve been subtly planting the seeds in the press for a while (pretty much shortly after they met at¬†Justin Bieber‘s Zoe Church in L.A. ) Also, that photo he chose is so deeply unflattering.

-The Critics’ Choice Awards were last night, and I liked what some people wore there better than what they wore to the Golden Globes (Constance Wu, Charlize Theron, Sandra Oh), while I am very confused why some people (Julie Roberts, Amy Adams) basically did a repeat of what they wore last weekend.

-Also last night: Rami Malek finally got his moment with Nicole Kidman.

-The Critics’ Choice Awards handing Roma the big prize is upping its buzz. I’m still not a huge fan (it’s clearly a technical masterpiece but it also left me cold), but¬†Guillermo del Toro’s Twitter thread on why he loves it is very persuasive.

Meghan Markle reportedly told some children at today’s event that her due date is in April, and they’re not going to find out the gender beforehand.

Kylie Jenner has been beaten by a picture of an egg for the most-liked Instagram post ever. 2019 is already wild, y’all.

-Winter is coming — in the middle of April. HBO released a longer teaser and announced that Game of Thrones’ final season will premiere April 14.

-Speaking of HBO, last night’s True Detective premiere did way better in the ratings than I assumed it would.

-I loved that Kayleigh Donaldson’s Twitter thread outed an Instagram “influencer’s” scam conference and got the remaining dates shut down. (Donaldson hosts a really good industry podcast called The Hollywood Read if you’re looking for something interesting to stick in your ear holes.)

-Speaking of industry rumbling, the Academy is now fighting with its largest branch —¬†SAG-AFTRA, who is calling out the Oscars for trying to prevent talent from presenting at other award shows using “intimidation.” Remember last year when the Academy added all those young, diverse voters and we had such hope? Between this and the hosting debacle, what happened?

Brad Pitt is hitting the Oscar trail for If Beale Street Could Talk (which I finally saw and LOVED). His Plan B production company is on quite a streak.

Miley Cyrusbirthday post to Liam Hemsworth is incredibly sweet. It’s weird how much I’m rooting for these two.

-Huh, all those blind items might be onto something.¬†Tidal is¬†under investigation in Norway over “fake streams.”

Travis Scott say he agreed to perform at the Super Bowl with Maroon 5 on the condition the NFL would make a $500,000 donation to his charity of choice (but people don’t seem impressed).

-It turns out that if you want to interest me in a Perry Mason reboot, putting it on HBO and casting Matthew Rhys is the lead pretty much does it.

-I love that Mindy Kaling retweeted this amazing thread of Kelly Kapoor as Pride & Prejudice characters.

-Speaking of great Twitter threads, I’m late to the game but last week HBO gave out Sopranos-inspired nicknames to any celeb/verified who asked for one, and it was amazing.

Tom Hardy and his wife Charlotte Riley have had a baby boy –– but despite reports they didn’t name him after Forrest Gump. Whew!

Ryan Coogler sounds awesome. Women who worked with him on the set of Black Panther said he created an environment where they could “cut past any of the normal bureaucracy of male dominance.”

-There is a new movie coming out starring Mel Gibson and Sean Penn and I have never nope’d anything harder.

-In the Little Woods trailer,¬†Tessa Thompson must return to the dangerous life she thought she’d left behind.

Colton Haynes Opens Up in Out

colton-haynes-out-cover

-This Colton Haynes profile in Out is kind of heartbreaking. He had a rough childhood (he was told his dad killed himself because he found out he was gay), and is anxiety is so bad that he suffered panic-induced vomiting on set. ¬†Hope he’s getting better; I love that kid.

-Well, well, well. Turns out The Rock really wasn’t talking about Scott Eastwood with that “candy ass” comment. TMZ reports he was referring to Vin Diesel and the pair were forced into an¬†onset meeting yesterday to try to solve their issues. (I never doubted ONTD commenters, no matter who was tweet-disagreeing with me about it yesterday).

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green welcomed baby No. 3, a boy they’ve named…um… Journey River. So, that happened.

Kirsten Dunst is savage and I love it.

-Crazy Ex Girlfriend’s Rachel Bloom is the best. She rewrote her show’s casting notices for the female gaze, and shattered the illusion of red carpet glamour.

-For the first time in years, we won’t be gifted with a Taylor Swift album this October.

Jennifer Lopez just signed on to a new HBO movie about drug lord Griseldo Blanco that’s being co-executive produced by…Alex Pettyfer? Whaaa?

-The all-female Ocean’s 8 will likely include Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Mindy Kaling and Rihanna. How come they’re stuck with a reboot? Surely someone could write something amazing for a cast like that.

-Speaking of Cate, her face is front and centre in the new Massive Attack video.

-Don’t tell me that¬†Kim Kardashian doesn’t have a social media strategy.

-I actually kind of like¬†Meryl Streep’s dress here, and I never like¬†Meryl Streep’s dress!

-What do you think the press tour for Wonder is going to be like once Julia Roberts realizes lil’¬†Jacob Tremblay¬†is getting all the attention? ::grabby hands::

-Now that season two of UnREAL has wrapped, creator Sarah Gertrude Shapiro seems to be trying to walk back her comments in that New Yorker profile.

-This Vulture interview with Matthew Goode on The Wine Show left me swoony (more so than usual).  The fact that he and Matthew Rhys bonded on the set of Death Comes to Pemberley? Kill me.

-Congrats to Supernatural’s¬†Jensen Ackles and his wife, who are expecting twins.

-What happens with the heads of 5 TV networks get together? You get some good/weird tidbits, including¬†Netflix’s chief revealing that¬†the two Adam Sandler movies premiered at No. 1 in every single territory of Netflix around the world.

-Damn right the DC/CW-verse crossover episode should be a musical.

-Oh god. They really went ahead and made a Bad Santa 2.

Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner make first contact with aliens in the Arrival trailer.

Allow Heidi Klum’s Awkward Kiss To Cheer You Up

-Why is¬†Heidi Klum‘s boyfriend trying¬†to eat her face¬†at Wimbledon?

-It’s been a rough week. Need some more frivolity? ¬†Let¬†these¬†photos of Prince George¬†lift our spirits.

Mischa Barton has apologized for posting bikini pictures to protest police violence. Swell.

-The only good thing about the recent wave of ridiculous magazine profiles on female celebrities is all the think pieces being written¬†calling them out. So far,¬†this one¬†is my favourite — and not just because the headline is “Stop Jizzing All Over Journalism”.

Lea Michele and Robert Buckley  have already split. Filming on their new sci-fi series just got super awkward.

-Have we gone one day this week without seeing new photos of Hiddleswift? I don’t think we have.

Aubrey Plaza came out as bisexual in a new interview with The Advocate. Why did I think she already did that?

Matthew Rhys and Matthew Goode‘s Wine Show is coming to Hulu. Not ideal for Canadians, but I can work with it.

-Sorry, I refuse to believe that Ansel Elgort‘s new track has a shot at being called the song of the summer. Refuse!

-I’m actually really liking what the CW is doing with their contracts that allow their¬†supporting actors to stretch across multiple shows. Wentworth Miller doesn’t really have enough to do on Legends, and John Barrowman hasn’t had a reason to still be alive on Arrow for at least two seasons now, but they’re too big¬†to let go of completely so this is a good compromise.

Simon Pegg and Zachary Quinto are disappointed in George Takei‘s disappointment¬†about Sulu being gay.

This is why I follow Gina Rodriguez on Snapchat.

Russell Brand is going to be a dad.

-HBO’s limited series The Night Of, which debuts this Sunday, is getting rave reviews.

Emma Watson documented her meeting with the new Hermione, and the photos are delightful.

Cobie Smulders is in a new movie called The Intervention. A) I love this entire cast, and B) Do you think she stole the intervention banner from the HIMYM set?
