Stacey Dash’s #Oscar cameo didn’t flop, it revealed hollywood’s real cringeworthy diversity problem

Highlights from Source

- The silence after Stacey Dash's joke wasn't that it fell flat, it was that it showcased what Hollywood really thinks of ideological diversity.

- POC actors and actresses deserve more roles. But if you have a Hollywood cast that looks different and THINKS EXACTLY THE SAME, you don't have real diversity.

- In their absolute thirst for different varieties of skin tone, they miss out on the one type of diversity that would make it truly interesting: Ideological diversity.

- Past Sunday night, you witnessed a rare instances when they did encounter a conservative, and that’s when their ‘open-mindedness’ really kicks in. A moment that revealed just how unwilling Hollywood is to embrace anyone who thinks differently.

Paraphrased from Chris Rock's monologue: Everything is not about sexism or racism. Sometimes, it’s just about ideological and political elitism.

Edit 2. Sorry you all.

The LA Times was allocated 6 press passes for the Oscars but only 2 went to reporters.

Reporters for the LA Times had to beg their bosses to cover the Academy Awards.

LA Times reporters Steve Zeitchik and Amy Kaufman ended up covering the ceremony.

what a mess!

Batman v. Superman sells more tickets in first 24 hours than Jurassic World, Age of Ultron.

According to, Batman v. Superman ticket sales on their website reached 59% of all tickets sold in the last 24 hours.

To put into perspective, Avengers: Age of Ultron sold 21% of its tickets within their first 24 hours when it only took Batman v. Superman 7 hours to do the same. In addition, Jurassic World peaked at 51%.

It was obviously not enough to break the Star Wars: The Force Awakens record, which peaked at 75% in its first 24 hours.

Help Kickstart "Trust No One", with Simon Kassianides, Brett Dalton, and Caitriona Balfe

Agents of SHIELD's Simon Kassianides (who's also appeared in multiple movies and shows over the years) has started a Kickstarter for his movie, Trust No One, set to star his former co-star Brett Dalton and Outlander actress Caitriona Balfe (who plays the female lead). More casting announcements are expected in the coming weeks. Many rewards are being offered for contributing so check Kickstarter to see what they are.

As of the time I've submitted this, $21,533 of the $65,000 goal has been raised already!

Description of the movie:

'Trust No One' is a film that sits squarely in the action thriller genre. Seemingly ordinary 'Ben' and 'Amber' have highly sensitive and very much sought after information in their possession. Information that has had them running for their lives. We’re introduced to them right before an exchange that promises to provide them with a lot of money but more importantly - their freedom.

The logline:

Ben has intel people have killed for trying to get at. With time and choices running out...there really is nobody left to trust.

Iggy Talks About Her Plastic Surgery to Elle Canada

 photo iggy1_zpsjiqu2b4v.jpg

Admits to getting a breast augmentation and a nose job last year. "I think, in 2016, people should be more accepting of the fact that both famous and non-famous women are having cosmetic procedures. That's just the reality. And I think more people need to admit that s--t so it doesn't have to be so taboo—because we're all doing it anyway."

Got her nose job because she was hit in the face with a soccer ball at 16 that left a permanent bump on her nose. Now she feels her nose looks how it's supposed to.

"Everyone tells you that you should love your body the way it is. But then it is bad to say that you want to change something about yourself not because you want to look like someone else, just because you want to? What's wrong with that? There's nothing black and white about beauty or plastic surgery. There are no guarantees that it will fix how you feel about yourself. All of those women [who criticize someone for having surgery]—if they had $10 million in their account tomorrow, I'd dare them not to change one thing about themselves or at least think about it...And there's nothing wrong with that."

There is no quote from the source about Iggy's alleged chin implant.


If you got $10 million tomorrow, would you get cosmetic surgery?

A "The Notebook" reunion almost happened and Twitter went crazy.

It's been 7 years (yep. SEVEN YEARS and 4 months) since Canada's Royal Couple called it quits for good but no one is ready to give up on them.

A LA Time journalist who was at the Oscars, Amy Kaufman, tweeted that she spotted young Allie hugging old Allie, aka Rachel embracing Gena Rowlands. But Noah Calhoun was nowhere to be found the WHOLE NIGHT. He wasn't in the audience, skipped the red carpet, avoided the bar and didn't bother to go to the after party. Meanwhile, Rachel was busy slaying everyone and their mother left and right and Twitter was having a meltdown.

As this screenshot is showing , Rihanna liked this tweet , then the person who tweeted it deleted it , that's why it's not showing in her liked tweets anymore .
People are assuming that it's a shade toward Beyonce , who released Formation , which has yet to enter the billboard hot 100, but peaked at 8 in the Bubbling under 100 (chart position after the 100 first songs) . Desperado is a song from Rihanna's last album who isn't a single ,  but is #7 in the billboard bubbling under .

Formation wasn't up for sale but it was up for streaming and radio airplay , which make a 65% total of the chart position in the Hot 100 .

Hayley Atwell hints at a possible Season 3 for Agent Carter

With the season finale of Agent Cater airing today and the ratings doing not so well Hayley Atwell speaks up on the possibility of season 3 and balancing her newest ABC pilot Conviction saying "It's something I've tried not to entertain too much. There is a chance, from what I know, if both shows get picked up, I'll be doing both. Until I know one way or the other, I can't jump for joy or grieve. I am hearing at this point that we don’t know anything and we won’t know until the Upfronts in May. As is common knowledge, I am going to film another ABC pilot called Conviction. ABC has assured me that it would be actually possible, if both shows get picked up, for me to do both. So by saying yes to the pilot of Conviction does not automatically say that that’s it for Peggy and Jarvis at all. "

I would much rather have it be completely how I want it to be, whether that takes another year for me to do, or two months. I have no idea at this point. But I just know that the direction I'm going in is so good. It's the best thing I've done in a long time. I'm proud of the work, and it's very different; it's not what you would think at all. But I'm not rushing anything. I just want it to be done right, so that my fans will truly appreciate it."

This movie seems amazing. I love the idea of using paintings to tell Van Gogh's story. He definitely was an interesting dude.

This is the first fully painted feature film in the world, directed by Polish painter and director Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman (Oscar winner for producing "Peter and the Wolf"). The film is produced by Oscar-winning Studios Breakthru Films and Trademark Films.

Here is more information about the film:

Fact Checking this week's People vs OJ: American Crime Story

This week's episode was directed by John Singleton, and he's stated how emotional it was for him in several scenes as he hasn't worked with Cuba Gooding Jr since Boyz n the Hood. But let's dive into what was fact and what was for drama in this week's episode.

-,Cochran was pulled over by two officers in 1979 who had their guns drawn. They didn't cuff him, but everything else went down the same.

- It's never been concretely proven that Furhman owned Nazi paraphenilia, but it's definitely widely believed with reports from several colleagues.

-Hodgman did not pass out in the middle of the trial. He did have to pull out of the trial due to health issues though, and Shapiro even joked that they would have to “take [Hodgman] out on a stretcher." after Ito advised Hodgman to take some deep breaths after opening statements.

-Arsenio Hall did send Ito a fan letter.

-OJ did yell at Darden to get off his bench during visits to his home. Cochran denies claims that art belonging to him was used to spruce up OJ's house. If anything, they just made it look lived in. In contrast, Nicole's apartment had been stripped of all personality and furniture which didn't leave a good impression on the jurors.
