Beyonce and Jay Z Show Their Support for Meghan Markle

BeyoncĂ© and Jay-Z accepting their Brit award in front of a Meghan Markle painting is perfection. This is such a powerful but subtle way to show their support in the wake of the British press’ brutal (and often racist) coverage of her.

Serena Williams and Amal Clooney co-hosted Meghan Markle’s baby shower in NYC. This is such a power move and I adore it! She may not have royal allies but Hollywood A-list allies are showing up for her in force.

-Oh ffs. In a new podcast, Jason Reitman said “I’m not making the Juno of Ghostbusters movies…We are, in every way, trying to go back to the original technique and hand the movie back to the fans.”  What misogynist nonsense is this? How did the female reboot somehow take anything away from fans? This is playing right into the narrative of trolls who think women can’t be part of fandoms, and it’s disgusting.

-Those toxic fanboys who were littering Rotten Tomatoes with fake reviews of Captain Marvel can choke on their tears. The first screening was held for critics last night, and the initial reactions are GLOWING.

-Fox insists it has no plans to write Jussie Smollett out of Empire.

-That might change: Smollett has just officially been named a suspect in the criminal investigation into his alleged attack.

Idris Elba is going to host SNL next month and I’m HERE for it. My sister-in-law recently alerted me to his new Squarespace commercial and he plays such a good straightman opposite the hilarious Lolly Adefope. (“I was voted the Sexiest Man on Earth.” “Yeah, you’ve said that a number of times. You said it to the caterers.”)

Nina Dobrev hit back at Instagram commenters who remarked on her thin-looking frame in this photo.

Lily Colins and Noah Centineo are flirting on IG for all to see.

-I very much like this piece on Mandy Moore and how she’s become a symbol of why some women in the music industry aren’t taken seriously — and how that might change.

-I love Lizzo so much and this tweet about Shawn Mendes confirms it.

Channing Tatum and Jessie J are still dating. Huh.

-I don’t know why I read the Academy voter secret ballot interviews because they always make me so angry! Today’s is the worst. On best short doc nominee Period. End of Sentence, he said: “It’s well done, but it’s about women getting their period, and I don’t think any man is voting for this film because it’s just icky for men.” F**kkkkkkk youuuuuuu.

-The Oscars are only four(!) days away, and it sounds like a mess. They’re still figuring out how to keep it under three hours, and they’re shooting down rumours that Whoopi is secretly preparing to host. After Dwayne Johnson rejected the host offer, they even considered a different host for each hour of the telecast but now it seems like they’ve ended up with … no one?

-People can’t even figure out the frontrunners for the Best Picture race . I’m still assuming it’ll go to Roma, but for the first time ever, all the guilds (which are good predictors) chose a different winner.

-Speaking of the guilds, here’s Chelsea Peretti’s hilarious monologue at the Writers Guild Awards. “The writers of The Good Place took an unbelievable premise like Kristen Bell being friends with a black person and they turned it into an amazing show.”

-I definitely agree with this take on how The Good Place needs to set an end date.

-I don’t want this for Chris Hemsworth.

-I’m very glad that someone is asking the hard questions about Lucas Hedges‘ GQ cover interview. What kind of high school assigned students to see him in a middle-school play?!

Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson play police officers who come out of retirement to catch Bonnie & Clyde in The Highwaymen trailer.

Lana Condor Talks About Her True Love — And It’s Not Noah Centineo

lana-condor-noah-centineo

-In her new Cosmo cover story, Lana Condor admits she and Noah Centineo did nothing to stop those romance rumours, despite her having a longtime live-in boyfriend. But I wonder how much that was encouraged by Netflix during TATBILB’s press tour?

-Congrats to Jennifer Lawrence, who’s reportedly engaged to art gallery rep Cooke Maroney.

Bradley Cooper was refreshingly candid when he talked to Oprah about being “embarrassed” by his Oscar snub for Best Director. “I felt embarrassed that I didn’t do my part. I’ll work on that. I went, ‘Oh, gosh. I didn’t do my job.'”

-The Walking Dead has been renewed for Season 10, but there is a chance Danai Gurira may not return as negotiations have become more complicated since she became a superstar thanks to Black Panther. Meanwhile, Norman Reedus becomes No. 1 on the callsheet with a reported paycheck of $350,000 per episode on top of additional guarantees and advances in a deal that sources say could be worth anywhere from $50 million to $90 million. (That guy also hits the lucrative con circuit hard so he’s pretty much flush.)

In the new issue of British GQ, Armie Hammer (who might be Hollywood’s worst tweeter — discuss!) stands by his tweets that criticized celebrities’ selfie tributes to the late Stan Lee.

Hugh Jackman accidentally restarted his fake feud with ‘total f—ing a–hole’ Ryan Reynolds.

-Avengers: Endgame might clock in at 3 hours. Dear god.

Jennifer Lopez is performing a Motown tribute at the Grammys and people are not happy.

-I’ve been reading a bit of backlash about the third season of The Good Place and I just don’t get it. Yeah, the Earth-bound stuff wasn’t great and I’m not totally shipping Eleanor and Chidi (and I ship everyone!) but this was also the season that gave us the Jeremy Bearimy episode so I have no complaints.

-Just eat the damn pizza, Drew Barrymore.

-Here’s our first look at the Four Weddings and a Funeral reunion for Red Nose Day.

-Speaking of first looks, HBO just released a bunch of photos from Game of Thrones’ final season. I feel like I’m going to love Sansa this season.

-People’s cover story gives good press to Meghan Markle (which she can use after the trashing she’s getting in the British press — there was a headline yesterday about her being the cause of Harry’s baldness). People’s story has some new scoop, including how she leans on her faith and how everything went down with her father during the wedding.

Ed Westwick (who was accused by three women of sexual assault but prosecutors did not pursue charges) just landed a new gig. These men are Teflon.

-EW is doing a bunch of romcom retrospectives in time for Valentine’s Day. I’m not sure anyone needs a fond look back at He’s Just Not That Into You, but I really liked this piece about Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt getting together to re-watch (500) Days of Summer 10 years later.

-Celebs are getting in on the #FuckFuckJerry action and calling on people to unfollow their accounts.

-Here’s the first trailer for The Sun Is Also a Star. This book is on my bedside table and it’s one of two (alongside The Hating Game) that I pick up whenever I’m down because I can flip to a random page and it just brings the happy. So trust me when I say I do NOT want them to screw up this movie — and this trailer has me hopeful that they won’t. Yara Shahidi looks perfect; I’m less convinced about the Riverdale guy but I’ll give him a chance.

Pete Davidson’s Triumphant Return

Pete Davidson‘s appearance on SNL this weekend was all kinds of wonderful. I love that he did it with his friend and former SNL writer John Mulaney, who knows a little something about substance abuse and anxiety.

-I can’t stop watching this video of Bryce Dallas Howard crying on command. What kind of witchcraft is this?!

-This is my favourite Keanu Reeves story of the week, but then again it’s only Monday.

-I’m highly skeptical of the Sun’s story about Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron dating, but man that would make for some juicy gossip. Especially since there’s been rumours of friction between Theron and Angelina Jolie.

-Meanwhile, homeowners who bought Make it Right houses in the wake of Katrina are suing Brad Pitt and the foundation for shoddy workmanship, who are in turn suing the architect in charge of the project.

Leslie Jones isn’t wrong to be pissed about the new Ghostbusters announcement. The way that it all went down definitely makes it seem like they’re trying to erase the last one.

-This is nice: Bon Jovi‘s restaurant is giving away free meals to furloughed workers.

Gillian Anderson is going to play Margaret Thatcher on The Crown. Between this and Olivia Colman on board to play Queen Elizabeth II, I might have to break down and watch this thing again.

-It didn’t take me long to stop following Noah Centineo on Instagram because his posts were killing my crush real quick, so I’m not super surprised by his defense of Logan Paul. Still gross, though.

-Here’s the first official image of Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding in Paul Feig‘s romantic comedy Last Christmas and I can’t wait to watch the crap out of this!

This thread about how the world treated Sinead O’Connor in 1992 is so worth your time (and will make you love Kris Kristofferson).

-I watched the Netflix doc on the Fyre festival this weekend, and the fact that Ja Rule is now trying to cast himself as a victim is rich.

-Also, if you watched it and were saddened by how the Bahamians were treated during the festival’s meltdown, consider donating to this GoFundMe for Maryann Rolle, who lost $50k of her personal savings in order to pay her staff when the fest organizers bailed. It’s already raised $140,071 of its $123,000 goal.

Russell Brand is in hot water after giving an interview in which he basically admitted to letting his wife handle most of the child-rearing duties.

-Ugh. While promoting Incredibles 2’s Oscar campaign, Brad Bird defended disgraced Pixar exec John Lasseter. “You’re navigating a world where men have acted a certain way for thousands of years. Way too late, but all of a sudden, they’re expected to change that on a dime and it’s necessary and it’s right. But it’s a little bit a gray area.” (Seems like a good time to revist this article.)

Millie Bobby Brown tries to make a connection in the new Godzilla: King of the Monsters teaser.

Judi Dench is accused of being a spy in the Red Joan trailer.
