Stars Shine at Oscar After-Parties

-Once again, I liked a lot of celebs’ after-party looks more than their Oscar red carpet choices, including Gal Gadot’sFlorence Pugh’s, Greta Gerwig’s and Billie Eilish’s (who hung out with Timothee Chalamet). Other stellar after party looks included Hunter Schafer, Tessa Thompson, Rihanna, and Tracee Ellis Ross.

Adele also showed up to an after-party and she was barely recognizable. I mean, I hope she’s happy and healthy but this is drastic.

-ICYMI: here are our picks for Oscars’ best and worst dressed.

-I’m still in (happy) shock that Parasite won last night. The ranked ballot (which only applies to the Best Picture category) certainly helped; lots of people would have had to choose it as their top pick, but a lot of people would have had to have it as their 2nd or 3rd choice.

-I’m still not sold on the Parasite TV series, but this is intriguing.

Bong Joon Ho apologized to the Oscar engravers: “I’m so sorry for the hard work, there’s too many.” As Linda Holmes pointed out, this guy spent the awards season giving a master class on how to appear “humble-but-aloof, grateful-but-not-thirsty, honored-but-not-waiting-for-your-approval.”

-This is actually quite sweet. Shia LaBeouf was offered to present an Oscar. He said he would do it if he could share that moment with his Peanut Butter Falcon co-star Zach Gottsagen.

Camila Morrone attended the Oscars with bf Leonardo DiCaprio — and she wore a wedding dress.

-With the revelation that Brad Pitt likes Letterkenny, paired with him recently telling Marc Maron that he’s watched his comedy series multiple times, I’m now picturing him sitting at home and watching quirky, under-the-radar comedies all day.

-The Oscars telecast reached an all-time low rating, dropping sharply from last year. It did much better in Canada (proportionally).

-The night before the Oscars was the Spirit Awards, where Laura Dern was serenaded with her own song.

-Also at the Spirit Awards, Noah Baumbach thanked Adam Sandler for helping to fund his films.

Penn Badgley and wife Domino Kirke are expecting their first child together, and revealed they had suffered two miscarriages in a row.

Janet Jackson just announced a new tour. I don’t usually hit up stadium shows, but I saw her on the Unbreakable tour and she was amazing.

Beyoncé is working on something new and it somehow involves her mother’s art.

Chris Pratt got salty on Twitter. What would Jesus say?

-This is a great deep-dive into the trajectory of Margot Robbie, who’s managed to change her Hollywood destiny by becoming a producer.

Bill Nye dancing to Lizzo on the runway at New York Fashion Week is the purest thing you’ll see all week.

Mulan got a new trailer:

Taylor Swift Puts Scooter Braun on Blast

Taylor Swift accepted the Billboard Woman of the Decade award last night and she used her speech to blast Scooter Braun. Among the highlights: “Scooter never contacted me or my team to discuss it prior to the sale or even when it was announced. I’m fairly certain he knew exactly how I would feel about it, though. And let me just say that the definition of toxic male privilege in our industry is people saying, ‘But he’s always been nice to me’ when I’m raising valid concerns about artists and their rights to own their music. And, of course, he’s nice to people in this room; you have something he needs…Private equity is what enabled this man to think, according to his own social media posts, that he could ‘buy me.’ Well, I’m obviously not going willingly.”

Colin Firth has split from his wife of 22 years, more than a year after allegations surfaced that she had an affair with a childhood friend.

Harry Styles’ second album, Fine Line, has finally arrived – and critics are loving it.

-Speaking of 1Ders, Niall Horan says Lizzo made him blush when they met. “[I told her] ‘Your voice is incredible. Your songs are amazing. You’re absolutely smashing it.’ And literally without missing a beat she just went, ‘You could smash this.'” My hero!

-My god, Stephen Amell looks like he’s 17 when he’s clean-shaven.

Sally Fields is the latest celeb to get arrested while protesting with Jane Fonda.

-This video of Henry Cavill reading The Witcher is a total thirst trap and it’s working. His. Arms.

-All the yes to the NYT’s take on the garbage fire that has been this season of Survivor: “In a workplace — a morally and legally responsible one, anyway — just imagine if you responded to documented misconduct by telling your employess: Well, you deal with it if you don’t like it. Imagine telling them the only way for them to get rid of their inappropriate coworder was through a public vote, at risk of personal loss and possibly being voted out themselves? Then imagine putting the whole thing on broadcast TV as a lesson to America in what happens when you speak up.”

-Meanwhile, CBS announced the reunion show won’t be airing live as per usual. Instead they will be taping it that afternoon due to “security concerns.” Oh sure. I’m certain that it has nothing to do with the fact that if any contestant criticized CBS or Jeff Probst on the handling of all this on the live show, they wouldn’t be able to edit it out.

-On Ellen’s show, Jason Momoa surprised a couple with an all-expenses-paid trip around the world for their “dream honeymoon” because they haven’t been able to go anywhere after an accident left the husband paralyzed.

Justin Timberlake also got into the surprise gift giving action for Ellen.

-I’m actually kind of surprised that Shazam is getting a sequel.

Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach discuss their relationship in the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter. Says Greta: “It’s exciting to have mutual acknowledgment of the work that he and I have both put into [our movies]. There is a sense of wanting to show off for each other. At least on my part. I remember when I showed Noah cuts or drafts of Little Women. He’s my favourite filmmaker and my favourite writer. It means everything to me that he thinks it’s good.”

-On the Today Show, Ryan Reynolds surprised the actress who played the Peloton Wife.

-I love you, Keri Russell but I will never, ever see Antlers.
