Stop Shipping Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt

Jennifer Aniston threw a 50th birthday bash this weekend and the guest list was insane (George, Amal, Gwyneth, Reese, Sandra, Kate, Orlando, Katy, Demi, RDJ, Courteney, Ellen, etc.) but the guest that everyone’s buzzing about today is her ex-hubby Brad Pitt. Not surprisingly, people from her camp are already shooting down talk of a reconciliation, pointing out that they only chatted briefly and “they definitely aren’t dating or on that path. They are friendly, but that’s it.”

-God, I could watch this video of Anne Hathaway shading James Franco for hanging her out to dry at the Oscars on repeat for a month.

Chris Pratt responded to Ellen Page‘s criticism of his church with a long-winded, poorly designed IG story.

-Congrats to Supergirl’s Melissa Benoist, who announced her engagement to former costar Chris Wood.

-Fleabag season 2 is starting in March.

-Hulu is delaying the third season of The Handmaid’s Tale until June, putting it out of Emmy contention. (They claim it’s not because of GoT, but come on.)

-Hulu also previewed the new Veronica Mars reboot, promising a more mature take.

-The official website for Captain Marvel (which is set in the 90s) looks like it was built on Angelfire and it’s total perfection!

-The BAFTAs took place in London this weekend, and Olivia Colman gave another perfect speech (“We’re gonna get so pissed later!”) while Cate Blanchett looked like she was collecting infinity stones.

Trevor Noah‘s thoughts on the Liam Neeson debacle are worth a listen.

-As part of her cover story with Justin, Hailey Baldwin answered Vogue’s 73 questions. It’s awkwardly stiff.

Chris Brown needs to stay the hell away from Cardi B. And, you know, everyone else.

-I really liked this profile on Roma’s Yalitza Aparicio, which challenges the fairy tale narrative that’s been building all season.

-Did Sean Penn really write a column about how Bradley Cooper should have been nominated for Best Director? Really?! It’s his FIRST movie! I would have rather seen Destroyer’s Karyn Kusama or Can You Ever Forgive Me?’s Marielle Heller get a nom before Cooper.

-Oscars is relegating four categories to commercial breaks, including editing and cinematography. You know, that things that actually make movies good.

-No surprise here: Bryan Singer‘s Red Sonja has been put on the back burner.

Lin-Manuel Miranda will guest star on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. He basically tweeted that show into survival, so this is lovely.

-It looks like Warner Bros is actually going to pull Friends from Netflix for their own streaming app.

-Did you miss the Grammys last night? Here’s the red carpet recap.

-Last night during the Grammys, we got our first look at Will Smith as the blue genie in Disney’s live-action adaptation of Aladdin — and it’s really, really bad. The teaser launched a million Arrested Development jokes.

Vanity Fair’s Hollywood Issue Wows Us

Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue Cover

-There’s so much I love about Vanity Fair’s annual Hollywood cover. The majority of actors featured are POC! It was shot by someone other than Annie Leibovitz! The ladies are fully clothed! Regina King looks amazing! It features Elizabeth Debicki — who should be getting wayyyy more buzz for her stunning turn in Widows! I probably would have switched out Nicholas Hoult for Brian Tyree Henry, who might have had the best year of anyone in Hollywood, but this is still pretty great.

-Millennium Films put out a statement confirming that Bryan Singer is going to keep his $10M Red Sonya directing gig even after yesterday’s exposé. The film will adapt a comic book character who becomes a great swordsperson after a group of mercenaries kill her family and their leader rapes her. And Singer’s the guy who gets to tell that story. So that’s just effing great.

David Tennant is launching his own podcast next week and his first guest will be his former Broadchurch costar and current Oscar nom Olivia Colman. Get in my ear holes!!

Jeff Bridges is teasing that his Big Lebowski character will return on Feb 3 — in a Super Bowl commercial.

-I can’t stop staring at this image that Julianne Moore posted on Instagram. Stun-ning!

-This interview with Catharine O’Hara is a total delight.

George Clooney responded to The Guardian’s op-ed that questioned his loyalty in helping Sudan with his own article.

Priyanka Chopra is back from her honeymoon and proving that being married hasn’t stopped her from pulling off bad jeans.

-Is it weird to get turned on by a promo image for a play?

-Only “Shallow” from A Star Is Born and “All the Stars” from Black Panther will be performed at the Oscars. The nominated songs from Mary Poppins, RBG or Buster Scruggs won’t make the cut.

-I’m pretty pumped for USA’s new Briarpatch show starring Rosario Dawson, which was written by one of my fave podcasters.

-The CW is sticking with what it knows. They just ordered spinoffs of Jane the Virgin and Riverdale.

-Everyone’s talking about the batshit ending of Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway‘s new movie Serenity so I went ahead and spoiled myself. Worth it.

-Go, Anna Wintour!

-I’m pretty much all the way out on the Handmaid’s Tale at this point, but Christopher Meloni and Elizabeth Reaser are both good gets.

-The trailer for The Umbrella Academy, Netflix’s new show starring Ellen Page, looks like an American version of Misfits and I’m kind of here of it. They even cast Nathan!

The Black Panther Cast’s Sexy Love Triangle

-The Black Panther cast made a sexy partner-swapping video last night and I’m dead. It killed me.

Chrissy Metz denied calling Alison Brie “a b*tch” into her microphone on the Golden Globes red carpet. It very well could have been “babe” like the cohost insists — the audio cuts off pretty abruptly after “she’s such a b-.” Brie posted a pic of them together with the caption “Nothing but love for @chrissymetz! Rumors can’t keep us down!”

Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale were spotted chatting at a Golden Globe after party, so of course everyone’s is assuming they’re a thing now.

-In case you didn’t hear it during the broadcast, here’s Emma Stone yelling “I’m sorry!” after the joke about Aloha.

-I don’t know what was weirder — that critically reviled films Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody took home the biggest awards (it would have made slightly more sense if Green Book won best drama and Bohemian Rhapsody won best comedy/musical), or that Bohemian Rhapsody’s credited director Bryan Singer wasn’t mentioned even once in the acceptance speeches. I guess they’ve decided their best path to Oscar glory is to pretend the film isn’t associated with an accused rapist?

Rami Malek fanboying over The Americans is a mood. He was also v. cute when he introduced himself to Lady Gaga, who I’m pretty sure had no idea who he was but seemed pretty polite about it.

-I wonder if Giuliana Rancic‘s awkward red carpet interview with Debra Messing was in retaliation for last year’s equally awkward red carpet interview?

-My favourite thing about last night’s Golden Globes was watching people discover the joy that is Olivia Colman. The first thing I ever saw her in was Tyrannosaur, which I still think about 8 years later. Also, her delivery of the line “With respect sir, move away from me now or I will piss in a cup and throw it at you” remains one of the best thing to ever exist.

-ICYMI, here’s our Golden Globes fashion recap.

-I love that critics are loving Sex Education, Netflix’s new British teen comedy starring Gillian Anderson that drops next week.

-Today in court, Kevin Spacey pleaded not guilty to groping a man in a Nantucket restaurant. The judge ordered the actor to stay away from the accuser.

Lena Dunham and her former producing partner Jenni Konner reportedly aren’t on speaking terms, possibly because of Konner’s continued support of Girls writer Murray Miller, who allegedly raped Aurora Perrineau. I rarely say this, but good on Dunham.

Melissa Joan Hart is denying making anti-Semitic comments on a podcast.

-Oh god. R. Kelly created a Facebook page in which he started targeting his accusers one by one. Luckily the page was shut down. Can he just go to jail already?

HBO’s latest sizzle reel features new Game of Thrones footage — including Sansa telling Daenerys through gritted teeth “Winterfell is yours, your grace” as Jon Snow, Jorah and Brienne look on.
