Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph Talk Comedy, Bechdel Tests

maya-rudolph-amy-poehler

-I honestly cannot wait for Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph‘s Netflix comedy Wine Country, and their Vanity Fair feature makes me even more excited.

Jennifer Lawrence and Adele delighted onlookers this weekend when they turned up to play drinking games at a gay bar in the West Village. I always forget that they’ve been friends for a while.

Barbra Streisand had to clarify her Michael Jackson remarks after the backlash, saying she feels ‘nothing but sympathy” for the victims.

-I thought the trailers were really iffy, so I’m surprised by the glowing reviews Shazam is getting.

Shane West attended his A Walk to Remember costar Mandy Moore‘s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, which warms my cold cold heart.

-Mel B confirmed she and Geri Halliwell had a brief fling during the Spice Girls’ glory days. “(Geri) is going to hate me for this because she is all posh in her country house and her husband, but it’s a fact. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it.”

Rosie O’Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck publicly feuded on The View, but in her new book O’Donnell admits to crushing on her cohost. “I think there were underlying lesbian undertones on both parts.”

-Netflix’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before was directed by a female, but a dude gets the sequel.

-The fifth and final season of Jane the Virgin debuts Wednesday and the reviews of the final batch of episodes are gushingly positive.

-Meanwhile, while Phoebe Waller-Bridge leaving Killing Eve, the reviews for season 2 aren’t as across-the-board positive as they were in the first season.

-I’ll never be brave enough to watch it, but I love that Jordan Peele‘s Us had a historic weekend at the box office.

-These two little kids did a cover of Radiohead’s Creep on The Voice Germany and I can’t stop listening to it.

-The rumours that Avengers: Endgame might actually be 3 hours long are gaining traction. FML.

-18 years ago today Bjork wore the swan dress to the Oscars. Never forget!

-Apple trotted out a bunch of big name (mostly white) celebrities to announce their new TV offering today — but we didn’t learn much. It will launch on Apple devices and smart TVs in the fall (meaning they’ll miss this year’s Emmy eligibility). It will be ad-free, VOD (everything downloadable), get new titles added every month, and also allow you to watch your other paid TV subscription services like Hulu and Amazon Prime. But there was no word on pricing, when each show will debut, whether all episodes of said shows will drop at once, etc. But hey, Oprah is doing a couple of documentaries and a book club for them so…yay?

-Also, it’s crazy that they didn’t show trailers for any of their new shows — just a quick sizzle reel even though series like The Morning Show, starring Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell, has apparently already filmed. And having Steven Spielberg there to shill for Apple’s new streaming service in light of his Netflix stance was beyond odd.

Legends of Tomorrow returns next week and I honestly can’t wait. This show is pure joy.

Jennifer Aniston Talks Proposal Memories, Ghosts

jennifer-aniston-harpers-bazaar

Jennifer Aniston covers the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar (to promote her new fragrance. Is that where the print industry is at these days? Sheesh). Luckily, the interview is kind of delightful because it’s conducted by Amy Sedaris (who was Justin Theroux ‘s best man at the wedding).

-In an new interview with People, Julia Roberts talks about George Clooney‘s kids: “I haven’t met [the twins] yet — I’ve just seen cute, cute pictures! I have a very good present [for them], but since I haven’t sent it, I can’t say what it is.”

Jennifer Lawrence says she got into a “real bar fight” in Budapest where she was filming Red Sparrow. Who does she think she is, Jeremy Renner?

-Also, Jennifer says she’s taking a break from acting. “I don’t have anything set for two years.”

-The Emmys are this weekend and some of the races are shaping up to be quite interesting (I expect Big Little Lies and The Handmaid’s Tale to clean up). Also interesting: 14 out of the 19 lead actress nominees are over 40, proving TV is the place to be for actresses of a certain age.

-Damn, this is tragic. Rosie O’Donnell has released a statement on the apparent suicide of her ex-wife.

-Wow, it’s the end of an era: Jeff Jensen is leaving EW. The way we now dissect TV shows for clues can be directly traced back to his grand, complicated Doc Jensen theories about Lost.

-This deep dive into the making and unmaking of  Iggy Azalea is worth your time.

-Oh god, Cole Sprouse‘s answer about whether he and Riverdale costar Lili Reinhart are dating IRL is even more obnoxious than I’d expect. (And I always expect peak obnoxious from him…)

-Now that TIFF is winding down (thank god!), here’s a look at how the Oscar race is shaping up post-festival.

-I still have two TIFF movies to go before I finally wrap, but Three Billboards Outside Ebbings, Missouri is my far and away fave so far. Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell were born to play these roles.

-Speaking of TIFF movies, if you have no interest in seeing Mother! here’s a spoilery article about what actually happens at the end of that movie. Holy. Eff.

Halle Berry dared Channing Tatum to dress up like a princess and sing “Let It Go” — which he just did on Ellen.

Ashton Kutcher reunited with That 70s Show costar Laura Prepon and called her out for not telling him about her engagement to Ben Foster.

Sarah Jessica Parker says she now regrets wearing black on her wedding day. Ok, but what about this?!

Kelly Clarkson made her hubby get a vasectomy after her second pregnancy because it sucked so much.  “I was literally pregnant with Remi, and I was like, ‘You are getting fixed. This will never happen to me again.'” Bless her.

-TMZ claims to have gotten hold of the insurance claims for Kim Kardashian‘s jewelry that was stolen in Paris this week.

Rosie O’Donnell wrote a poem about meeting Ivanka Trump … as you do.

-NBC’s supernatural thriller Midnight, Texas looks like a PG-rated True Blood.

-Why are dumb commenters coming after Halle Barry for cropping her kids’ faces from Instagram?! That’s a good thing.

-Sweet! Veronica Mars alum Jason Dohring just booked a gig on iZombie.

-This is an interesting interview with the guy behind Crazy Days and Nights. I don’t usually trust his blinds, but he has had some recent wins lately.

-This Justice League sizzle reel is filled with awesome behind the scenes footage.

Matthew McConaughey gets rich in the new Gold trailer.
