Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader Are Dating

-Over the weekend, I sent my friend DeuxMoi’s item about how Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader are rumoured to be dating, because them as a couple just makes so much sense to me. People has now confirmed it, with sources saying they’ve been “quietly” dating for more than a year and “she’s really happy.” The costarred in the 2019 Disney+ Christmas movie Noelle.

Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes are fueling reconciliation rumors after she publicly supported his new music.

-Buffy star Charisma Carpenter has responded to recent remarks made by Joss Whedon, calling him “a former tyrannical narcissistic boss who is still unable to be accountable and just apologize.”

Tom Holland is reportedly in the running to be the 2022 Oscar host. I don’t hate this. He’s got the biggest movie of the year, and we know from his Rihanna lip sync that he’s game for anything.

Sia says she was suicidal and entered rehab following the outrage over her feature directorial debut, Music. Kathy Griffin defended her, saying “the attacks she received were because of kind of sexism, ageism and misogyny”, though autistic people who got caught in the crossfire aren’t buying it.

-I don’t have a lot of interest in a series based on Fatal Attraction — or at least I didn’t until Joshua Jackson and Lizzy Caplan were cast as the leads.

Pamela Anderson and her fourth husband are splitting after one year of marriage.

Robert Pattinson‘s The Batman is 2 hours and 47 minutes long – without credits. What are we doing here, guys?

Hilarie Burton and Bethany Joy Lenz are joining their One Tree Hill costar Sophia Bush in an upcoming episode of her new CBS show, Good Sam. I love that these three are still so tight but also, what great marketing. If my TL is any indication, OTH love still runs deep.

-The White Lotus is heading to Sicily for its second season.

-Season two of Upload (starring the good Amell) debuts on March 11. I really liked the first one.

-Crews on film and TV shows are worried about how lax covid protocols have gotten.

-The reviews of The Gilded Age are good, but with Carrie Coon and Christine Baranski starring, I’m going to watch it either way.

-Downton Abbey’s Joanne Froggatt fights back against her abusive ex (Michiel Huisman) in the trailer for the six-episode phycological thriller Angela Black.

Anne Hathaway and a barely recognizable Jared Leto tell the story of WeWork in the trailer for Apple TV’s new limited series, WeCrashed.

Lana Candor Says Goodbye to Lara Jean

Lana Candor is promoting the final To All The Boys film (on Netflix next week! Yay!) and talked to Self about burning out while promoting the first movie and shooting a TV show (“I was just saying yes to everything because it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and you want to capitalize on it, and you want to feel like you’re fully embracing everything. But I’ve never felt more horrible mentally. I was so burned out…. I would go home at night and I couldn’t speak. I couldn’t eat. I couldn’t sleep. I would shake going to bed and shake waking up because it was just so much stimulation. I was on the phone with my team and I had this moment where I just was in tears, telling them that I don’t feel okay. And they were all shocked because I wasn’t open about my feelings. No one knew”), experiencing body dysmorphia “(I’m not in a place where I can say, ‘Oh, yeah, it’s over.’ I have to work on it every single day”), and being the only Asian in a casting room of white women (“You’re like, ‘What am I doing? Do you have me here to fill a quota?’ That can feel very obviously limiting”).

-The Golden Globe nominations last year were surprisingly great — but we knew that couldn’t hold. This morning’s nominations were back to being a WTF mix of surprises and snubs. Emily in Paris and Ratched are nominated while I May Destroy You (the only consensus show of the goddamn year) is shut out? Jared Leto gets love but Meryl Streep doesn’t? There was also the lack of diversity, which was especially apparent in the TV categories. This is a good piece on why it matters, and this is a good piece specifically about what I May Destroy You’s shut out says about whose stories are seen as universal.

-My favourite nomination reaction tidbit is this one about The Great’s Nicolas Hoult, who was doing a workout *in his kitchen* when his phone started beeping with congratulatory texts. London apartments, man.

-Speaking of the Globes, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are back on hosting duties this year.

-My god, has any singer been so determined to torpedo his own career faster than Morgan Wallen? First came his SNL debacle, and now footage emerged that captured him using expletives and the N-word. He’s apologized but CMT has already dropped him from all its platforms. He’s also been disqualified by the CMAs for upcoming awards.

Rebel Wilson and Jacob Busch have called it quits.

-The CW has given renewals to pretty much all of its existing shows, continuing its habit in recent years of announcing renewals before May.

-Watch some of the Super Bowl’s biggest ads ahead of the game, starring Michael B. Jordan, Mila Kunis, Mindy Kaling, and more.

Sam Neill didn’t really know what was happening when he filmed Thor: Ragnarok. “I was completely baffled by so many things. I went with friends who sort of knew a bit more than me. I was like, ‘Do you know what planet we’re on at the moment? Is that Hopkins or was that Loki?’ And they were explaining it, they said, ‘You’re in the film! Why do we have to explain it to you?’ I said, ‘Because I’m a bit lost. I’m truly lost here.’ ”

Bebe Rexha would like you to know that the rumours of her death have been greatly exaggerated.

Dominic West and wife Catherine FitzGerald are enjoying a luxury family vacation in Kenya. In the middle of a pandemic. This guy…

Pamela Anderson shared photos of her backyard wedding with People.

-I don’t watch The Bachelor, but apparently Matt James‘ season has devolved from being celebrated for its diversity to being defined by women attacking other women.

-Congrats to Jenny Slate, who just welcomed a baby girl. It’s her first child, who she named Ida Lupine.

Mario Lopez says he had stayed in touch with Dustin Diamond — and they were talking about doing a reality show together. “I don’t abandon, like, my friends or never turn my back on people that are always there for me and I stood by him and was always a phone call away when he moved to Wisconsin and we stayed in touch and he met his girlfriend recently. We were actually discussing, when I talked to him recently, just two weeks prior to him passing, about the upcoming season and figuring out doing something cool. I was trying to convince him to do something in the reality space that I’d be producing for him.”

-Please don’t make me catch up on all the Southern Charm gossip. I just don’t care, even if A-Rod is involved.

Fran Lebowitz doesn’t plan to watch Bowen Yang‘s SNL impression of her.  When asked how she learned about the sketch, she had the MOST Fran Lebowitz answer: “I went into the kitchen where there’s my answering machine, a device, which you may have to describe to your listeners. There were messages on it, and I thought something horrible happened, someone died, you know? And so I got these messages. But no, I didn’t see.”

-This interview with Viggo Mortensen is excellent. He says he’s reuniting with Eastern Promises’ David Cronenberg on a new project, and talks about that time he was found in the woods as a baby, wandering around with a dog.

-Here’s the latest trailer for Coming 2 America, coming to Amazon Prime.

Janelle Monae Makes The Cut


Janelle Monae‘s cover story for The Cut was written by Roxane Gay, so you know it’s good. Monae talks her fear of the 2016 election results feuling her Dirty Computer album (“It started with who don’t I mind pissing off. I don’t mind pissing off conservatives. I don’t mind pissing off white men. I don’t give a fuck. This is about celebrating. I wanted to celebrate queer black people living outside of what it meant to be American”), and her method approach to shooting her new film Antebellum (“I want that spirit to always stay on-camera so I don’t break. I don’t talk on the phone a lot … I don’t want that to take me out of my space).

-Meanwhile, Roxane Gay also shared her thoughts on American Dirt and the West Side Story revival.

-Oscars are this weekend! The big acting awards seem locked (Joaquin Phoenix, Renée Zellweger, Brad Pitt, Laura Dern) but can Parasite’s increasing recognition mean it’ll cause an upset in best picture? God, I would love that.

Joaquin used his BAFTA acceptance speech this weekend to call out the ceremony’s lack of diversity, adding “I think that it is the obligation of the people that have created and perpetuate and benefit from a system of oppression to dismantle it so that’s on us.” This is a very, very good speech (especially since in the last few years of award shows, it’s only been actresses making this kind of stand). But it’s also very much like…ok, now what? At this point, Hollywood needs to start taking concrete steps to dismantle the system. Inclusion riders? Refusing to work with only white male directors? What’s it going to be?

-Meanwhile, Prince William, who is BAFTA’s president(!), revealed that the academy has “launched a full and thorough review of the entire awards process” following the #BAFTAsSoWhite controversy.

Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith went to the BAFTAs and remain the cutest thing.

-People didn’t love Rebel Wilson’s speech but I dunno — I laughed at her Cats jokes.

Hugh Grant made Bridget Jones’s Diary references when he presented after Renée Zellweger at the BAFTAs, and it was perfect.

-12 days after reportedly getting married, Pamela Anderson is single again.

Megan Thee Stallion is apparently dating G Eazy and people have a lot of opinions about it.

-Speaking of new relationships, Lady Gaga is dating a CEO named Michael Polansky.

-The reviews for Hulu’s High Fidelity, starring Zoe Kravitz, are good. Really good.

-I binged the last six episodes of Bojack Horseman and I still can’t believe that an animated show about a horse makes my ‘best TV in the last decade’ list, but there it is. It’s also weirdly the third series finale I’ve seen this week with a door-to-death concept.

David Schwimmer is walking back his comment about “Maybe there should be an all-black Friends or an all-Asian Friends.” In a lengthy response to a post from actress Erika Alexander, he explained “I didn’t mean to imply Living Single hadn’t existed or indeed hadn’t come before Friends, which I knew it had.”

Jennifer Lopez and Shakira‘s Super Bowl performance was fire! In case you missed it (or just want to relive the glory) it’s on YouTube.

-Coach dropped their perfectly timed campaign with JLo hours after her performance.

-As per usual, the Super Bowl brought with it a bunch of new movie and TV trailers. On the TV front, Marvel gave us a peek at The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, WandaVision and Loki, while on the film side we have our first Bond trailer, a new look at Mulan and the Top Gun sequel, and a new Black Widow trailer.
