In BAFTA Career Retrospective Conversation, Viola Davis Revisits 'The Help' with a Critical Eye

https://soundcloud.com/bafta/viola-davis-a-life-in-pictures (not sure how to embed soundcloud)

22:21 - On auditioning for Doubt: when she had her call back, she thought it was down to her and adriane lenox - who played the role on broadway. Then she gets the audition call sheet and on her day alone there was like 7 other people (including Taraji P henson, Audra Mcdonld) each with 45 minutes slots to screen test and they all did their hair and make up at the same time. And could hear each other's audition and the (faux) positive feedback they were all being given.

- she is not private, people just aren't checking for her in that way.

- she loves Target.

30.44 - story involving a messy family member and some paparazzi target pictures.

33:04 - How to get away with murder was the game changer in her career.

33:47 - The Help! She knew it was a best selling book and she knew it would change her career. She liked the premise. She liked the director and actors and thought it was an important story, but she had a lot of issues with it. While Skeeter said she was going to write a story from the maid's perspective, the story really wasn't from their perspective. There were good aspects to the book, but also things she felt didn't ring true like the maids turning down money, the maids would have a lot of anger towards the white women, but all we saw was shit pie. The reason the maids were not shown as angry is because they (white peeps) wanted to preserve the image of the loving maid.

Yordano Ventura, Kansas City Royals pitcher, dies in car accident at 25 years old

He was killed in a car collision in the Dominican Republic. Not many more details yet.

Ventura was very close with Oscar Taveras, who was considered the future of the St. Louis Cardinals organization. He paid tribute to Taveras after he was killed in a drunk driving accident.

Yordano Ventura's death comes less than a year after the tragic passing of Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez in a boating accident.

Former Cleveland Indians 3B Andy Marte also passed away over the weekend in an unrelated car accident.


This is devastating. That boy had a huge mouth with a fiery attitude but he put in work. RIP to both men.

Keke Palmer BLASTS Trey Songz for including an unauthorized cameo of her in his music video

Trey Songz and Fabolous released the music video for "Pick Up the Phone" and it included a clip of Keke Palmer. She was not having it and called him out on Instagram.

Caption: This is preposterous. How am I in this video Trey? After you found me in a closet HIDING because I was so afraid of anymore conflict. Literally my last option was to hide because you all would not listen when I said I did not want to be in the video the FIRST time. Just cause you give someone food and alcohol and throw in a little sexual intimidation doesn't mean they will buckle. Yet, you still disrespected me as a young women, whom you've known since she was TWELVE. YOU STILL, defied my wishes and in turn showed your lack of respect for a brand that took me fourteen years to build and put me in the video against my wishes. Come on bruh, I clearly said no and you said okay, yet I was being secretly filmed when you told me "let me just show you the idea"?? Wow. This is what I'm referring to in my previous post, this is the sexism and misogyny I refer to because if I was a dude, he wouldn't have even tried me like this. Let this be a lesson to all, I'm not for the bullshit. I'm serious about my business and you will not use my likeness without MY permission. When you in front of a boss you treat them like one, like I treat YOU. NO MEANS NO!!!!!!! People have to listen to women and stop questioning them and their intelligence. Speak up, cause when you look someone in the face and they say "I understand. You don't have to feel pressured to do the video" and they STILL put you in it, it is a violation. It would be great to be able to handle these things privately but why when they aren't respected?

Tom Hardy Says His Privileged Upbringing Made Him Rebel

In a recent interview, Tom says that he was a troublesome teenager and that he still has a fascination with violence. [? concerning tbh]

He says it's to do with living in the suburbs. The life he has was so privileged and peaceful to the point of being dull and it gave him a desire to fuck everything up. He ended up being expelled from a 30,000£ school for stealing a car, while there was a gun in the car. He was 15 when this went down.

He felt like he had to endanger himself and it was kind of a self harm. He wishes he had outgrown the violence but it still has a romance to him, [weird way of phrasing it] which is why he's usually cast as a villain.

Was your life so privileged and peaceful to the point of being dull ontd ?

Little People Big World's Audrey Roloff is not a fan of the Women's March.

It's been way too long since my last anti-Roloff post. I'm sorry, I know you guys care a lot about what these twerps are up to.

Anyway, super Christian and "star" of Little People Big World Audrey Roloff only had this to say about yesterday's Women's March:

She then made an instagram post saying that Christians should be more united and not divided, writing that "our unity as Christ followers should not be cultish and exclusive," which totally explains why she blocks people who disagree with her.

Big shock coming from someone who likely voted for Trump.


In other Roloff news, Zach and Tori are gonna have a baby. But that's sweet and positive, so who has time for that? Not on my watch.

Legendary figure skating coach Frank Carroll dumps Gracie Gold

Frank Carroll, famous for being dumped by Queen Michelle Kwan prior to the 2002 Olympics and later coaching original OrangeBro Evan Lysacek to Olympic Gold in 2010, has dumped 2-time US Champion (and 1-time friend of Taylor Swift) Gracie Gold after her[Spoiler (click to open)]6thplace finish at Nationals.

  • After Gracie's long program, she told Frank to throw away her TeamUSA warmup vest. He tossed it in the trash, and a few minutes she went and fished it back out.

  • Gracie has recently been outspoken about her deep depression/"funk" following a 4th place finish at the 2016 World Championships.

  • Frank took her to sports psychologists and thinks he's done everything he can to help her but nothing has worked.

Frank Carroll: "There will be a change. But you can't just say goodbye. It's got to be worked out intelligently and legally when we get home."

Gracie Gold: "I am surprised that Frank announced his decision before informing me. I continue to have the utmost respect for Frank Carroll and his legacy. He took me on during a very vulnerable time, and I am forever grateful for our work together. Despite my sadness in missing this world championships, I will benefit (from the) extra time entering the Olympic season. I plan to use it well."

Ellen Page Confronts Homophobic Preacher About Homosexuality


Ellen Page marched in Washington, D.C. to protest Trump's inauguration, and in the process she debated a homophobic preacher about homosexuality.

“Homosexuality, that’s a demonic, toxic feeling. That’s what you become, that’s not who you are. Who you are is when you come out your mother’s womb.”

“That’s not scientific, you’re wrong and that’s really hurtful," Ellen replied.

“If you could open your heart and be less ignorant to LGBT people, I think you’ll have a much more beautiful life,” she stated calmly, though the preacher kept interrupting her. Ultimately she said, "We’re not gonna get anywhere. You’ll believe this your whole life. I feel for you.”

I cry if I try to argue with someone.

Stacey Dash gets the boot at Fox News

Word on the street is (people say I look like) Stacey Dash has been let go from Fox news. Apparently, Fox declined renewing her contract. It is almost expected seeing that Black twitter has stopped getting riled up by her and Stacey had outlived her usefulness as resident rabble rouser. Dash IS (shockingly) a Trump supporter, so maybe there might be a future for her in his goverment? I hear he is in the market for ambassadors?

 Before she found work trolling black people, Stacey Dash was a struggling actress, who spent what must have been a large part of her day tweeting public figures trying to get them to watch her web-series that went nowhere. She also attempted a music career before realising she could get paid by Fox news to troll black people.

Hannah John-Kamen for 'Interview'

If Hannah John-Kamen looks familiar to you there's probably a good reason for that. In addition to starring in her own hit series Killjoys (filming for season three is currently underway) she has also made appearances in Game of Thrones, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and currently is the only actress to appear in two separate seasons of Black Mirror ("Fifteen Million Merits" in season one and "Playtest" in season three). She also has a significant role in Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One releasing next year.

In the interview she speaks about her upbringing, growing up the youngest child of a Nigerian forensic psychologist and a Norwegian model, as well as her upcoming projects and how she broke into the industry.

Octavia Spencer and Ryan Reynolds are Hasty Pudding's Man and Woman of the Year!


This year's Hasty Pudding honorees will be Octavia Spencer and Ryan Reynolds. Every year, Harvard's Hasty Pudding Institute of 1770 names an actor and actress to be honored and roasted by the student theatrical group.

Octavia Spencer, an Oscar- and Golden-Globe-winning actress whose career spans several decades and who has overcome adversity to become an acclaimed and beloved thespian, is the Woman of the Year. Ryan Reynolds, who stars in shitty superhero movies, has been named Man of the Year.

Finally, an underqualified man and an overqualified woman are being given the same position. Seriously tho, go Octavia!

It's a Game of Thrones leaks post


This post is brought to you by Robin Arryn, the defender of the Vale and scourge of the Boltons.

Collapse )

More leaks came from the same guy who provided pages from the alleged scripts in a previous post. Take with a grain of salt.

[Spoiler (click to open)]

- Euron tells Jaime that he wants to marry Cersei and asks him how she likes to be fucked; it's apparently the funniest exchange in the script

- Jon gives Tormund command of Eastwatch by the Sea. Tormund has captured the Brotherhood without Banners and the Hound who have arrived to fight whitewalkers. They tell Jon they want to fight whitewalkers because the Lord of Light has foreseen it or something, so Jon brings them along.

- Cersei reveals to Jaime that she's hired the 20k sellswords from the Golden Company to fight Jon and Dany once they're done fighting the whitewalkers

- Jorah is very grumpy about Jonerys at first because they're flirting and shit; Tyrion notices Jonerys too

- Jon and Jorah end up bonding and Jon cures Jorah of his daddy issues. He tells Jorah he's glad Ned didn't capture and kill him and Jorah is happy too.

- Jon and Gendry bond as well because they're bastards and their dads were BFFs. For some reason, Gendry doesn't mention Arya (OP: smh).

- It is implied that Ellaria is left to starve in the dungeons, Sand Snakes dead, Water Gardens stupid.

- Jon vocally pledges to Dany in the dragonpit and that pisses off Cersei. Dany brings her remaining two dragons to the Dragonpit to intimidate Queen Cersei. But Dany fails to hide from Cersei that one of her dragons got killed and this makes Cersei confident that she can defeat Dany because the dragons aren't invincible.

- Jon initiates boat sex. There's no dialogue from Jon and Dany during this scene and the leaker says it's something that happens naturally and inevitably. There is a montage where Jon and Dany have sex and we hear Sam and Bran discussing Jon's background and we find out Jon's Targaryen name as Jon and Dany are boning. (OP: I hope we find out his name while they climax, for maximum meme value and cheese. Thank you Bran!)

- Grey Worm doesn't die.
