Scott Speedman is back on Grey’s Anatomy? Aw man, I didn’t want to get sucked back in.

-I’m still watching The Morning Show — not because it’s good, but because it’s a train wreck that I can’t look away from. This week’s development makes little sense, so for this show it makes perfect sense. I’m amazed they weren’t publicizing this plot development in the trailers. (Spoilers for the latest episode, obviously).

-With her last couple of posts, Britney Spears is really pushing Instagram’s rules about boobs.

-The judge in Kelly Clarkson‘s divorce has ruled that the Montana Ranch is hers, not her ex’s.

Bernie Sanders, Adam Schiff, and 118 members of Congress have signed a letter backing IATSE’s demands for meal and bathroom breaks, adequate sleep, and living wages for crew on film and TV sets. The vote on strike authorization began today.

-Wow, I adore Nina Dobrev‘s 1920s Spanish style home.

-I saw Melissa McCarthy‘s The Starling at TIFF and did not like it (despite good performances from her and Chris O’Dowd). It’s now on Netflix.

-Here’s a new trailer for Steven Spielberg’s  West Side Story.

The View Interrupted by Covid

-It was a wild day on The View. They were supposed to have Kamala Harris on today, but in the middle of the show producers announced co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro had to leave the table after testing positive for Covid-19. Joy Behar and Sara Haines just took audience questions for the bulk of the show, and Harris ended up calling in remotely for the last 10 minutes of the show.

Elon Musk and Grimes have broken up after three years together.

Sarah Jessica Parker wrote a touching tribute to the late Willie Garson — “I will miss everything about you. And replay our last moments together.” She also shared some very sweet photos.

Russell T. Davies — who was instrumental in helping revive Doctor Who in 2005 — is set to return as the showrunner of BBC’s cult sci-fi series. “I’m beyond excited to be back on my favorite show.”

Drew Barrymore interviewed the cast of Dear Evan Hansen as Josie Gellar from Never Been Kissed. There’s a moment when you can actually see Julianne Moore‘s soul leave her body…

Cary Fukunaga covers The Hollywood Reporter to chat about Bond, but also dished a bit about what went down on True Detective. “[Writer] Nic [Pizzolatto] kept positioning himself as if he was my boss and I was like, ‘But you’re not my boss. We’re partners. We collaborate.’… Nic is a really good writer, but I do think he needs to be edited down. It becomes too much about the writing and not enough about the momentum of the story. My struggle with him was to take some of these long dialogue scenes and put some air into them.”

-The Other Two has been renewed for a third season. Yay!

-The Super Mario Bros animated movie is powering up with an all-star voice cast led by Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, and Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong. The internet is SO MAD about the Pratt casting!

-I can’t believe I stuck it out through all of  Nine Perfect Strangers. I also can’t believe no one stopped Nicole Kidman from doing whatever she was trying to do. Melissa McCarthy and and Bobby Cannavale were the only good parts of that show.

-Meanwhile, on the show’s last day Melissa McCarthy proved that Nicole Kidman will hug anyone — no matter how much it scares her.

-A ton of Netflix trailers and featurettes are going to drop tomorrow during their Tudum event.

-The May Beauty issue of Harper’s Bazaar features Precious Lee (photographed by Renell Medrano) and Hailey Bieber (photographed by Amy Troost).

-In case you missed the Oscars last night (and judging by the ratings, many of you did), the biggest clips to watch are Daniel Kaluuya’s mom and sister reacting to the part of his speech where he said “Life’s incredible! My mom met my dad. They had sex. It’s amazing!”, Glenn Close knowing the moves to “Da Butt”, and Yuh-Jung Yoon starting her acceptance speech by addressing her presenter (and Minari producer) Brad Pitt with “Mr. Brad Pitt, finally. Nice to meet you. Where were you when we were filming in person?”

-The weirdest thing about the ceremony (besides it starting strong and then limping to the finish), was that they didn’t announce the Best Picture winner last like usual. Instead, that honour went to Best Actor — who turned out to be Anthony Hopkins, who didn’t show up. The theory is the producers assumed Chadwick Boseman would win posthumously and the show would end on an emotional high, but instead it came to an abrupt and anticlimactic finish that seemed to undercut Nomadland’s historic Best Picture win.

Hopkins released a belated acceptance speech that tribute to Boseman. Apparently, Olivia Colman was meant to accept Hopkins’ award for Best Actor if he won — and everyone is blaming Joaquin Phoenix for instead saying “we accept the award on his behalf” and shutting it down.

Another weird decision was to barely show any clips of the nominated films and performances. It felt like the wrong move, especially since most of these films have been barely seen by the general public. I’m sure if they had shown a clip when Sound of Metal won for Best Sound, for example, it would have intrigued people enough to seek it out.

-Fashion-wise, my pick for best dressed was Zendaya, with Regina King coming in a close second. 9-year-old Minari actor Alan Kim also got points for channeling David Rose.

Aaron Sorkin attended the Oscars with 80s model Paulina Porizkova, sparking dating rumours.

-The finale for The Falcon and the Winter Solider was not great, huh?

-Ellen DeGeneres is mocking the NFT trend by trying to sell a selfie of her holding original artwork of a cat, which she’s calling “Woman With Stick Cat,” but you just know it’ll fetch buckets of money. At least she’s donating it to Chef José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen.

-Here’s the first trailer for Hulu’s Nine Perfect Strangers, adapted from the book by Big Little Lies author Liane Moriarty. It stars Nicole Kidman, Melissa McCarthy, Bobby Cannavale, Manny Jacinto, Regina Hall and Michael Shannon.
