Cardi B Is Woman of the Year

Cardi-B billboard woman of the year

Cardi B is Billboard’s Woman of the Year — and what a year it was. In the interview she says, “I’m not gonna front — this has been a bad year due to work. You can’t do shows and you gotta wait on deals. But I’m really happy because I have spent so much time with my family. I feel like I haven’t laughed like I have in 2020. My daughter is so funny, and I’m with her every single day. That’s what brings me happiness.”

-Wow wow wow – the news that Warner Bros will stream ALL their 2021 movies on HBO Max on the same day as their theatrical debut is a huge, seismic shift for the movie industry. There’s lots of debate about whether this marks the death toll for movie theatres or if this was just because HBO Max needed Warner Bros’ entire slate to save it (I can’t wait to read tomorrow’s think pieces!) but either way, even after we get a vaccine and life returns to normal, it’s going to be hard to put the toothpaste back in the tube.

-Meanwhile, Canada will still get all those movies as theatrical releases. They’ll eventually come to Crave someday, maybe.

Daniel Radcliffe appeared on Hot Ones and in between wing tasting, he talked about why he won’t join social media. “When I was younger, not anymore thanks god, I would like to look up comments about myself on the internet and read s–t like that. That is an insane and bad thing to do. And to me, like Twitter and everything just feels like an extension of that. Unless I want to go just read all nice things about myself, which also feels like another unhealthy thing to do.”

Mindy Kaling’s Secret Baby

Mindy Kaling recently welcomed her second child — a baby boy named Spencer. This explains a Deux Moi item from a week or so about an actress who covered up an entire pregnancy and labour by posting pre-made content on Insta. There were some belly bump-ish photos from the paps earlier this summer but she kept posting non-pregnant bathing suit pics so it was kind of forgotten. I love how sneaky and secretive she is. We still don’t even know who the father of her first kid is, let alone this one!

-In a lengthy Insta note, Blake Jenner confirmed that he was emotionally, mentally and physically abusive towards ex-wife Melissa Benoist … but then tried to play it off like it was because she was also abusive to him?

I get why people are wondering, but I’ve already seen some great, award-worthy movies (One Night In Miami, Nomadland, The Father) and it would suck if they didn’t get their due. I adore this idea of giving the general public screeners this year, though assume distributors would never allow it.

-Oof. Broadway extended its shutdown through May 2021, but at least two major productions are betting that it won’t really return until next fall.
