Ronan Farrow and Jia Tolentino released their meticulously reported article on Britney Sprears’ conservatorship this weekend. Not a lot of huge shockers (beyond the fact that she called 911 the night before her testimony last month), but it’s a very good view into how some of those around her who initially acted with good intentions are horrified by how much it’s spiraled out of control.

-Also, Britney Spears is accusing the paparazzi of Photoshopping her to look heavier than she actually is for years.

-Blade star Stephen Dorff blasted the Marvel films and said he was “embarrassed” for Scarlett Johansson. “It looks like garbage to me. It looks like a bad video game.

-I was so excited to see the headline that Henry Golding has joined Dakota Johnson in Netflix’s update of Persuasion, assuming he was playing Captain Wentworth (my fave Austen leading man). But it turns out he’s playing the awful Mr. Elliot. Who in the world are they going to cast as Wentworth who will come off as more charming than Henry Golding?!

-The May Beauty issue of Harper’s Bazaar features Precious Lee (photographed by Renell Medrano) and Hailey Bieber (photographed by Amy Troost).

-In case you missed the Oscars last night (and judging by the ratings, many of you did), the biggest clips to watch are Daniel Kaluuya’s mom and sister reacting to the part of his speech where he said “Life’s incredible! My mom met my dad. They had sex. It’s amazing!”, Glenn Close knowing the moves to “Da Butt”, and Yuh-Jung Yoon starting her acceptance speech by addressing her presenter (and Minari producer) Brad Pitt with “Mr. Brad Pitt, finally. Nice to meet you. Where were you when we were filming in person?”

-The weirdest thing about the ceremony (besides it starting strong and then limping to the finish), was that they didn’t announce the Best Picture winner last like usual. Instead, that honour went to Best Actor — who turned out to be Anthony Hopkins, who didn’t show up. The theory is the producers assumed Chadwick Boseman would win posthumously and the show would end on an emotional high, but instead it came to an abrupt and anticlimactic finish that seemed to undercut Nomadland’s historic Best Picture win.

Hopkins released a belated acceptance speech that tribute to Boseman. Apparently, Olivia Colman was meant to accept Hopkins’ award for Best Actor if he won — and everyone is blaming Joaquin Phoenix for instead saying “we accept the award on his behalf” and shutting it down.

Another weird decision was to barely show any clips of the nominated films and performances. It felt like the wrong move, especially since most of these films have been barely seen by the general public. I’m sure if they had shown a clip when Sound of Metal won for Best Sound, for example, it would have intrigued people enough to seek it out.

-Fashion-wise, my pick for best dressed was Zendaya, with Regina King coming in a close second. 9-year-old Minari actor Alan Kim also got points for channeling David Rose.

-Ellen DeGeneres is mocking the NFT trend by trying to sell a selfie of her holding original artwork of a cat, which she’s calling “Woman With Stick Cat,” but you just know it’ll fetch buckets of money. At least she’s donating it to Chef JosĂ© AndrĂ©s’ World Central Kitchen.
