Trailer for Lifetime's Griselda Blanco biopic

Cocaine Godmother will premiere January 20th on Lifetime. Welsh actress Catherine Zeta Jones will portray the infamous Colombian crime lord, because it sure was hard to find an actual Colombian actress, no?
Griselda Blanco was a pioneer in the Miami drug trade in the 70s and 80s. She was said to be as dangerous as Pablo Escobar. She murdered over 200 people throughout her lifetime, only to be killed in a driveby shooting, because karma's a bitch.
Maya Rudolph previously portrayed Blanco in an episode of Drunk History.

U.S. regional film critics circles reveal 'Get Out', 'The Shape of Water' as top Oscars contenders





I'm just going to break this down into stats. The top contenders are based off of the winners of 33 regional critics groups across the country (still rising), and these are the potential frontrunners for this year's Oscar race.

Variety also noted that the most critically-hailed films in past years, including “Moonlight,” “Spotlight,” “12 Years a Slave” and “Argo,” did win best picture.

-- Best Picture: 'Get Out' is in the lead with 10 critics' circles' best movie, while 'The Shape of Water' is in second, with 5.

-- Best Director: Guillermo del Toro's got the most recognition with 11 wins from critics circles so far, and Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk) is second with 8.

-- Best Actress: This big ole wide race is interesting. Sally Hawkins actually has the most wins, with 13 from critics for 'The Shape of Water,' over Frances McDormand in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” who has 11 (Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie trail). I think Natalie Portman had the most critics wins last year for Jackie, so this doesn't necessarily guarantee a win.

Amara La Negra goes in on producer Young Hollywood on Love & Hip Hop: Miami


(A/N: Yes, yes this is racist)

Love & Hip Hop’s new season in Miami premiered last night, and as always, the drama didn’t wait.

One scene that has everyone talking is when Afro-Dominican artist Amara La Negra meets with Puerto Rican trap producer Young Hollywood to explore a working relationship.

Shit gets real racist as soon as she walks in.

First he tells Amara that if she wants to make it big, she has to be a little more Beyonce and a little less Macy Gray. (“More elegant” and “palatable” to the masses).

When Amara mentions that she’s Afro-Latina, Young Hollywood is confused and asks her if she considers herself Afro-Latina because she has an Afro.

After realizing that Amara is visibly upset over the racist shit he’s saying, he raises his fist and says that she is being intense about the whole “Afro thing”. He also calls her Nutella Queen.

Amara tells him to fuck himself and dips.

He is currently being dragged to hell in his IG comments.

Good on her for walking out. She’s alreasy had to deal with racism in Dominican media when she was starting out. Dude is a dick

Jodie Foster Slams Super Hero Genre: "You Get the Best Return Right Now but You Wreck the Earth"

Foster had this to say about superhero flicks:

"Going to the movies has become like a theme park," the two-time Oscar winner says of the current state of affairs. "Studios making bad content in order to appeal to the masses and shareholders is like fracking -- you get the best return right now but you wreck the earth. It's ruining the viewing habits of the American population and then ultimately the rest of the world. I don't want to make $200 million movies about superheroes."

She makes movies "because there are things I have to say in order to figure out who I am or my place in the world, or for me to evolve as a person."

She then goes on to ponder why she didn't go to law school.

OP Note: I know everyone is probably tired of this dude and his ilk, but I saw this today on my news feed and had to agree with everything said. Unfortunately, for all the good it has brought, Youtube is oversaturated with awful people who would kill someone if it means they could get views. Theenitre site needs a major overhaul but will never get it as long as the execs keep turning a blind eye to this stuff. If anything I would hope this would at least be the final nail in the Paul brothers coffin but unfortunately it doesn't seem like it.

Also, I know a lot of people in the last post were getting rightfully upset and being triggered by the content from yesterday's post, so I just want you to know that so many people care and appreciate you, and you are not alone. Here's a list of suicide hotlines if needed: International; US
