Norm Macdonald Has Passed Away

-Saddened and stunned by the news that Norm MacDonald has died at 61 “after a long and private battle with cancer.” There are a lot of clips floating around this afternoon, but the ones I keep seeing over and over are his moth joke, and his roast of Bob Sagat.

-Stars brought the fashion drama to the Met Gala last night. My faves were Tessa ThompsonElliot Page, and Lupita Nyong’o. See every single look here.

Keke Palmer killed it as the live stream host.

-It freaks me out how completely unrecognizable Hailee Steinfeld was at the gala.

Cara Delevingne is getting some heat because neither she nor the designer credited the person who coined “Peg the Patriarchy.”

Channing Tatum and Zoe Kravitz didn’t pose on the Met red carpet together, but they did leave together.

Nick Minaj tweeted her reason for not going to her 22 million followers: “They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now.” I would love to know what kind of research vax-hesitant people are doing that hasn’t already been done by the world’s leading experts and doctors.

-Congrats to Kate Hudson, who just got engaged and was not already engaged like I thought she was.

Jennifer Aniston was on Kimmel last night and said she’s skipping the Emmys because of covid. “This is still a big step for me just to be here. It’s just baby steps.”

Jason Sudeikis was spotted hiking with model Keeley Hazell, but his camp says they’re “just friends.”

Jeremy Jordan, Tammy Blanchard, and more from the Little Shop of Horrors’ Off-Broadway revival kicked off Broadway week last night on The Tonight Show.

-Only Murders In The Building has been renewed for season 2. I wonder how they keep it going. Another murder? Another building?

Will Ferrell crashed Ryan Reynolds’ latest TikTok.

-Why did Britney SpearsInstagram account disappear?

-I have so many questions about this photo, including ‘how did they all end up in the bathroom together?’

Andrew Garfield told Jessica Chastain that their promotional campaign for The Eyes of Tammy Faye will be a ‘no-licky-pitty zone‘ after her viral red carpet moment with Oscar Isaac in Venice. (I saw the film last night and while I was a bit lukewarm on it, Chastain is for sure a lock for an Oscar nod.)

Alanis Morissette does not support the documentary about her that is currently at TIFF and will soon be on HBO. “I agreed to participate in a piece about the celebration of Jagged Little Pill’s 25th anniversary and was interviewed during a very vulnerable time (while in the midst of my third postpartum depression during lockdown)…I was lulled into a false sense of security and their salacious agenda became apparent immediately upon my seeing the first cut of the film.”

-Man, I’m going to have to watch the leggings doc on Amazon that everyone’s talking about, aren’t I?

Nicki Minaj Dreams of Puppets

-Following the crazy drama Nicki Minaj experienced with Cardi B last weekend, she’s lightening things up with a new puppet-filled video.

-This doesn’t look like Jennifer Lawrence at all to me, for some reason.

Sarah Drew described the “beautiful” support she got from Grey’s costars Kelly McCreary, Caterina Scorsone and Chandra Wilson after her firing.  Seems like some pointed exclusions there…

Heidi Klum says she ignored Drake’s text when he asked her out.

-It’s been a while since I’ve read a celebrity interview that fails on every single level, but this THR one with Norm Macdonald is a doozy. Among the many, many misses, he gives his thoughts on #MeToo (“I’m happy the #MeToo movement has slowed down a little bit … that Chris Hardwick guy, I really thought got the blunt end of the stick there”) and talks about his friends who have been caught up in controversies (“Roseanne was so broken up [after her show was cancelled] that I got Louis [C.K.] to call her, even though Roseanne was very hard on Louis before that. But she was just so broken and just crying constantly. There are very few people that have gone through what they have, losing everything in a day. Of course, people will go, ‘What about the victims?’ But you know what? The victims didn’t have to go through that.”)

-Netflix execs won’t answer questions about a possible Louis C.K. return. Sometimes the worst answer is a non-answer.

-CBS stars are speaking out against Les MoonvesGayle King slammed CBS for not releasing the results of their investigation, James Corden opened the Late Late Show by saying “It’s been a very difficult day here at CBS, but that pales in comparison to how difficult it must be for the many women who are coming forward”, while Stephen Colbert said “Les Moonves is gone—for at least nine months until he does a set at the Comedy Cellar.”

Kit Harrison talked about how great married life is at TIFF last night.

-I saw Nicole Kidman‘s new movie Destroyer last night (costarring Sebastian Stan and Tatiana Maslany) and I was blown away by her performance. Not only is she unrecognizable, the things she does with her walk/physicality were amazing. Not surprisingly, she went so deep into character that she says hubby Keith Urban “couldn’t wait for the thing to be over.”

-Speaking of TIFF movies, the ones that seem to be getting the best buzz so far are Julia Roberts‘ Ben Is BackBarry JenkinsIf Beale Street Could Talk, The Hate U Give, A Star Is Born, and Jonah Hill‘s directorial debut Mid90s (though female critics seem to have a different take on that one).

-People are also loving Paul Dano’s directorial debut Wildlife, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Carrie Mulligan.
