Ryan Seacrest

Tiffany Haddish Has a Hookup Pact with Brad Pitt

Tiffany Haddish talking about her encounter with Brad Pitt in an elevator is all good. “He said in one year if he’s single and I’m single, we’re gonna do it.” God, how interesting would that suddenly make him?

Haddish also wore the same Alexander McQueen dress that she wore to the Girls Trip premiere and on SNL, and she jumped over a rope on the red carpet so she could curtsy in front of Meryl Streep. We are blessed to have her in our lives.

-Everyone’s talking about how E! bungled their red carpet coverage, with Maria Menounos grabbing most of the stars while Ryan Seacrest was awkwardly left with nothing to do.

-Also, I wasn’t as convinced as the rest of Twitter that Taraji P. Henson was “shading” Seacrest during her interview. Sure enough, she says she was actually supporting him: “I did it to keep his chin up. It’s an awkward position to be in. He’s been cleared but anyone can say anything.”

Frances McDormand gave the best speech of the night — and then someone tried to steal her Oscar trophy from her.

-People are really angry about Emma Stone trying to pull a Natalie Portman with her “These four men and Greta Gerwig” comment when presenting best director, seeing as one of those men is a Mexican immigrant and another is the first black person to win Original Screenplay. Someone needs to teach her about intersectional feminism.

-I have watched this GIF of Jennifer Garner at the Oscars so many times today. What is she thinking about?!?

-I also spent a long time looking up photos of Mindy Kaling with BJ Novak at the after-parties. I have such hope, guys!

-Also, this photo of the four women who lost Best Actress in a group hug is wonderful.

-I love this video of Sandra Bullock talking about crying in front of the Black Panther cast because the movie will mean to her son.

-I also love this video of Nicole Kidman interrupting Bullock during a red carpet interview (especially because Kidman seems so surprised that she liked Practical Magic when she showed it to her kids recently).

-I’m assuming the Times Up tat Emma Watson was sporting at the Oscar parties is temporary?

Henry Cavill isn’t dead, just confused.

-Good on Dwayne Johnson for accepting his Razzie for Baywatch. Here’s the thing, though: I actually saw Baywatch in theatres (it was a dark time), and he was the best thing about it! The reason that movie is so horrible is because his character disappears for like 40 mins.

Mae Whitman‘s continuing campaign to have every Friday Night Lights hunk play her boyfriend at some point tickles me. Do it, Kitsch!

Lee Pace opened up about his sexuality on Twitter after getting some pushback for hedging his answers in a recent W interview.

-The first trailer for Mary Poppins Returns dropped during the Oscars.

Teen Vogue Introduces Us to The Next Big Things

TeenVogue-young hollywood_2018

-The fact that I had to look up almost half of the people featured on Teen Vogue’s Young Hollywood Class of 2018 issue means I’m very, very old.

-On Colbert’s show last night, Donald Glover met the Girl Scout who used “Red Bone” to sell cookies and it was adorable.

-Man, Amy Schumer is sharing *a lot* about her wedding on social media. The dress still pains me, but this video of the wedding vows is very sweet. (I love the part where, after he pours his heart out in an emotional speech, she just mouths “f*ck.”)

-This thread about people freaking out when meeting someone famous made me smile.

-Speaking of things that made me smile today, there’s also this Funny or Die skit with Bradley Whitford playing an “emotional stuntman” who gets called in when actors can’t handle crying scenes. (“They’re not takes. They’re gifts.”)

-I can’t believe it took four days after that horrific CBC report for Hedley to finally announce they’ll be taking an “indefinite hiatus.”

-E! is reportedly holding Oscar red carpet prep “crisis meetings” in an attempt to have only “friendly” stars approach Ryan Seacrest to talk to live, according to Page Six. “There will be no Debra Messing moments this time around,” said a source.

-On their show today, Kelly Ripa  defended co-host Seacrest  without actually mentioning the assault allegations by saying, “I just want you to know that you are a privilege to work with and I adore you. I’m speaking on behalf of all of us here. I know what an easy, professional, great person you are, and I feel very very lucky to work with you each and every day.”

-Meanwhile,  Jimmy Kimmel says he has no plans to address the Me Too movement when he hosts the Oscars, saying “This show is not about reliving people’s sexual assaults.”

-There’s also lots of talk on Twitter that more stories about really powerful men in Hollywood are about to be published, including one about a TV “titan.

Quentin Tarantino‘s Sharon Tate movie is reportedly going ahead, and will star Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. No word on who will play Tate, despite the fact that she’s ostensibly who the movie is about…

-I really liked this interview with John Leguizamo, in which he talks about Latino representation in Hollywood.

-I stopped watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine but I might have to start again now that Gina Rodriguez has joined the cast and might be playing Rosa’s girlfriend.

-I’ve also given up on the new season of The X Files, but apparently last night’s episode was an excellent standalone that you can jump into without watching the others. The fact that Gillian Anderson tweeted about Scully’s vibrator afterwards has be intrigued.

-I also gave up on Scandal ages ago but the cast’s appearance on Ellen this week was very cute.

-The police were reportedly called to Tori Spelling’s house over a “domestic incident.”

-In a very, very clever Twitter exchange between Robert Downey Jr. and Marvel, the movie studio announced that Avengers: Infinity War’s release date would be pushed up a week to April 27 instead of May 4. It’s smart of Disney to move it further away from the release of it’s other big movie (Solo), as well as Deadpool 2.

Kristen Wiig is in talks to play the villain in Wonder Woman 2, which I kind of love.

-Here’s the trailer for Starz’ series SweetBitter. I really, really liked that book, which followed a new waitress training at one of NYC’s hottest restaurants.

Alicia Vikander and James McAvoy play lovers separated by a hostage taking (and a submarine) in the Submergence trailer.

Selena Gomez Talks About Being The Reluctant Queen of Instagram

Selena Gomez looks happy and healthy on the new cover of Harper’s Bazaar, in which she talks about her complex relationship to Instagram, and her increasing appreciation for her Latin heritage.

Prince William, Catherine, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle took the stage at the first annual Royal Foundation forum. I was incredibly impressed by how well Markle did.

-It looks like Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are at it again. They were spotted together in Prague.

-An E! ex-employee backed up stylist Suzie Hardy‘s allegations against Ryan Seacrest on the Today Show, saying he witnessed several incidents of misconduct against her. “She would go to tie his shoe, and Ryan would shove her head toward his crotch. I saw that more than once.” Seacrest says Hardy is lying, and claims she offered to withdraw her allegations if he paid her millions. “This person who has accused me of horrible things tried to buy her silence by asking for money on multiple occasions — I refused. I don’t want to accuse anyone of not telling the truth but in this case, I have no choice but to again deny the claims against me, remind people that I was recused of any wrongdoing, and put the matter to rest.”

-Variety is pushing back on Seacrest‘s claim that they didn’t reach out to him for comment on their story. (Also, the replies to that thread prove that people have no idea how journalism works.)

-Meanwhile, he is still set to start shooting the new season of Idol later this week, and is still scheduled to host E!’s Oscar red carpet on Sunday.  But some publicists say they plan on steering their clients away from him.

-Also, Kelly Ripa is reportedly remaining “fully supportive” of Seacrest.

-This might be the craziest Oscars in a while in terms of how up in the air the Best Picture category is. It feels like most experts expect a tight race between Shape Of Water and Three Billboards, with a possible upset from Get Out (which I think should win).

-I love these 60-second recaps of Oscar noms.  Here’s Three Billboards, Dunkirk, Lady Bird, Phantom Thread, Call Me By Your Name and The Shape of Water. All spoilery, of course.

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney debuted their new insufferable hipster characters on Conan. I hope they host this weekend’s Spirit Awards in character.

-I’m glad that everyone is shouting out Jesse Plemons’ performance in Game Night. It feels like one of those movies that’s going to be forgotten about really quickly, but if you’re looking for something funny after the Oscars, I laughed a lot.

Kal Penn talked about his time working at the White House, and how weird it now is to be playing a White House  a press secretary on Designated Survivor.

-The early reviews for Jessica Jones’ second season is that it drags a bit, but is still good.

-Speaking of season two reviews, Atlanta is reportedly “now less a television series than a conceptual work of art — a fractured feat of storytelling that works on mood more than momentum.”

This roundtable with the stars/writers of the new Roseanne makes me want to watch the reboot.

Ta-Nehisi Coates writing Captain America makes me want to start reading comics.

Kelly Clarkson can even make Google-translated songs sound good.

-I want to watch all the movies that the kids from The Florida Project pitched.

-This is really good advice from a former Survivor star about being on reality TV.

Kevin Costner tries to survive frontier life in the trailer for Paramount Network’s new drama Yellowstone.
