Anya Taylor-Joy’s Plots Her Next Move

Anya Taylor-Joy on the May cover of Elle

Anya Taylor-Joy is stunning on the May cover of Elle. She talks about not really understanding the popularity of Queen’s Gambit at first (“[I was] seeing texts like, ‘A lot of people have watched the show’. I’m not great at numbers. The most I can hold in my head is, like, a stadium’s worth”), and being BFFs with her Emma costar Mia Goth (“She was the first actress close to my age that I met, and we had a very cool conversation where I was like, ‘I love you,’ and she said, ‘I love you.’ And I said, ‘I’m always going to have your back.’ And she was like, ‘I’m always going to have your back.’ It was like, ‘Okay, cool. Let’s progress in this very wild industry, knowing that we’re going to take care of each other'”).

Zoe Kravitz and Jonah Hill are working on something together. Maybe?

This thread by the guy from 30 Rock must have taken decades to put together. I admire that kind of commitment.

-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.

-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.

Alec and Hilaria Baldwin debuted their new baby girl yesterday on Instagram, just five months after she gave birth to a baby boy. When a commenter asked if they used a surrogate, he responded “You should shut the f–k up and mind your own business.” Their PR rep added: “We’re still not issuing a statement or confirming anything — what she posted stands.” Everyone’s entitled to privacy when it comes to this stuff, but “the post stands” is my new favourite “no comment.”

George Clooney did a dramatic reading of BTS’ “Dynamite.”

Ray Fisher shared new details of “racially discriminatory conversations” on the Justice League set and specifically called out Geoff Johns: “There will likely be attempts to shift blame completely onto Kevin Tsujihara and Joss Whedon. But make no mistake. Geoff Johns worked intimately with Joss to overhaul the entire Justice League script. And while Geoff was not credited as a co-writer of the film, he was certainly an enforcer of the race-based discrimination that occurred during his conversations with Toby and Jon.”

T.I. will not return for Ant-Man 3 amid those sexual assault allegations.
