WGA Awards: "Eighth Grade", "Can You Ever Forgive Me?" win.



The Writers Guild of America is the one major Hollywood guild that doesn't concern itself at all with being an Oscars precursor -- reflected in its strict eligibility rules (you have to be produced under WGA jurisdiction or the jurisdiction of a few related organizations in other countries) that every year prevent several Oscar contenders from being nominated. And hey, if you're going to have your own awards, do your own thing.

He had a dramatic breakup with Miley's sister Noah a few months ago after allegedly cheating on her and getting upset at Noah for sending him a photo of Charlie Puth's head on a pornstar's body.

Now he has a pregnant fiancée named Annie Smith.

Annie also has face tattoos now.

No word on whether the new baby will have face tattoos.

Dane Cook, 46, jokes about how girlfriend Kelsi Taylor, 20, wasn’t alive for most of his life




Dane Cook stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last week to promote his upcoming comedy tour. During the interview he joked about the 26 year age gap to his girlfriend Kelsi Taylor.

“My girlfriend and I, we get a lot of crap from people because we have an age difference. I’m 46, and she’s 20,” he says. The audience then has an uncomfortable reaction and some snicker at the comment, which then prompted Cook to say, “I’m sure that wasn’t judgement at all.”

“Here’s the thing. I love her, she is the kindest, sweetest, just my favorite — my best friend,” he continues. “And sometimes I actually find myself saying, ‘Where has she been all my life?’ and then I realize she wasn’t alive for the first 26 years of it,” he joked. “People are like, ‘You’re robbing the cradle.’ I was like, ‘She hasn’t slept in the cradle for like nine years, relax.’”

Steven Spielberg takes veiled shot at streamers, urges filmmakers to make movies for theaters




  • Steven Spielberg accepted the Filmmaker Award at the Cinema Audio Society’s CAS Awards this past Saturday.

  • In his acceptance speech he commented on making movies for theaters versus television/streaming.

  • “I hope all of us really continue to believe that the greatest contributions we can make as filmmakers is to give audiences the motion picture theatrical experience [...] I love television. I love the opportunity. Some of the greatest writing being done today is for television, some of the best directing for television, some of the best performances [are] on television today."

  • He went on to say, "But there’s nothing like going to a big dark theatre with people you’ve never met before and having the experience wash over you."

  • In March of 2018 he had this to say about Netflix: “Once you commit to a television format, you’re a TV movie. You certainly, if it’s a good show, deserve an Emmy, but not an Oscar. I don’t believe films that are just given token qualifications in a couple of theaters for less than a week should qualify for the Academy Award nomination.”

Happy President's Day ONTD!
What better way to celebrate on this day than to reflect on the Hundred Dollar Bill.mp3 icon Lana Del Rey. If you're a listener, you probably already know that Miss Grant wears her Americana inspirations on her sleeve by noticing how she likes to sing about singers, poets, and reading about poetry itself.
She also includes many lyrical shoutouts to other songs and song titles; some subtle, some not. Now it's really nothing new because literally almost every artist has done it at some point or another, but considering her discography and extending to her leaked catalog, it's a staple in her artistry.
Here are 10 songs showing pop culture was in American art now American art's in pop culture in Lana Del Rey's music.







"Come take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane"


- Born to Die



[song]



Del Rey cited Lou Reed as an inspiration before, and even gave a shout out to his name in "Brooklyn Baby".

UnAnonymous Razzie Ballot: Who Should 'Win'?



THR critic Frank Scheck has seen all the nominated films and performances, a feat unparalleled. And now he's giving his picks for The Worst of The Year.


  • Thinks the Worst Movie choices are mostly weak bc they're predictable; Wonders where Life Itself and Welcome to Marwen are. Picks Holmes and Watson by default.

  • Actually this dude uses a lot of 'process of elimination' to pick the 'winners'.

  • Is dismissive of the nominations for Depp and Ludacris bc they were nominated for voice-work (Sherlock Gnomes, Show Dogs)

  • Calls Bruce Willis in Death Wish "wooden".

  • Lot of stuff about the nonsense that was Gotti (Kelli Preston's casting is NEPOTISM!) and Death of A Nation.

  • Because the OP will look for any reason to bring this movie to the forefront, luckily this author believes the Razzie Redeemer Award should go to Sony Pictures Animation, because going from The Emoji Movie (worst of 2017) to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse is a big accomplishment.

Cardi B on Jussie Smollett: "I feel like he fucked up Black History Month."

In a video stream, Cardi B shared her thoughts on the Jussie Smollett case that has been receiving so much attention as of late.

Starts at 0:33.



"So, I'm really disappointed... in Jussie Smollett, whatever the fuck his name is. I'm really disappointed in him. I feel like he fucked up Black History Month, bro. God damn. I'm not gonna say... yet, until he said out his mouth that it was fake and this shit was staged. I don't wanna completely blame him, because, you know, like, somebody that I was talking to, they said, like, you know, "police in Chicago are racist". So they might probably tryna frame him and make him look like he's a liar."


Says she does want to give him the benefit of the doubt [1:60] before going into a road rage story that took place two years ago, where police put her in a headlock, harassed her and her grandmother, and put out a statement claiming she staged the entire thing to promote an album that was never even in the works at the time.

'Bags of Marijuana' Photo of Miley Hemsworth's Mom Sparks Debate on White Privilege



Miley Cyrus, in case you didn't know, loves weed. She loves it so much that, like, Snoop Dogg himself told her she smokes more than anyone he knows (which she only told every person who interviewed her at the time). This apparently got her to quit for ten seconds before her "mom got [her] back on it", as she revealed last December. And Tish, who used to scold both Miley and Hillbilly Ray for smoking weed, apparently now smokes the most, or whatever.

ONTD Original: 2001 - A year of one hit wonders, Pt. 2

iPiccy-Design.png

PART ONE

The early part of the 21st century was one of the most confusing eras in music. As the 90's came to an end and we moved into the 2000s, music didn't have a big boom period for any one genre. Due to the mix of genres in the mainstream, we were bombarded with a horde of one hit wonders. 18 years ago, artists like Debelah Morgan, Willa Ford and City High were topping the charts. The artists who created their major year 2001 hits were never able to replicate the success. However, their songs always bring back the nostalgia. The year 2000 begins the "part two" of our 2000's one hit wonder series. Let's take another look at the best one hit wonders of the year 2001!

ATC - AROUND THE WORLD (LA LA LA LA LA)

ATC’s "Around The World" was a surprise one-hit wonder in the United States, peaking at no. 28 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and having a chart run of several months. It was later featured on the 2001 compilation album Now That's What I Call Music! 6. Due to the lack of promotion for the album minimal touring in the USA and Canada, follow-up singles failed to make any impact in North America.

PART ONE LIST:
Debelah Morgan - Dance With Me
Willa Ford - I Wanna Be Bad
3LW - No More (Baby Im'a Do Right)
Sunshine Anderson - Heard It All Before
Toya - I Do!!
City High - What Would You Do
Eden's Crush - Get Over Yourself
Blu Cantrell - Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!)

Study blames YouTube for rise in number of Flat Earthers



A recent study suggests that YouTube is to blame for the rise in Flat Earth believers. Assistant professor of science communication at Texas Tech University, Asheley Landrum, attended some of the biggest Flat Earthers conventions and surveyed 30 people. 29 of them said they believed the Earth was flat after watching videos on YouTube.

While Landrum doesn’t outright blame the popular video-sharing website, she does say that they can do better by tweaking the platform’s algorithm to show more accurate information. Last month, the company said it would start “reducing recommendations of borderline content and content that could misinform users in harmful ways” and that it would be a “gradual change.”

France Does Something Not-Cringeworthy; Makes Lightsabers Duels an Official Sport


Well, not cringeworthy in a "why can't I support a harasser, he's my friend" way, at least.

The Fencing Federation of France (say it 5 times fast) now recognizes lightsaber dueling as an official sport.

In an effort to help combat obesity in the country,  fencing clubs now have "lightsabers" and training would-be lightsaber instructors with weapons that sound and feel like the "real" thing without the slicy-stabbyness.

There was a competition outside of Paris that drew nearly 40 supporters. Bouts are intended to last in 3-minute bursts.

Maybe they can work up to 20 to 30 minutes soon.

'Living With The Lams' is fuelled with TV stereotypes



A children’s sitcom, Living With The Lams, about a British Chinese family living in their own restaurant.
It was commissioned by CBBC without writers of British Chinese or East Asian descent attached to it.
Actors like Jessica Fenwick and Katie Leung have signed an open letter to CBBC in protest.
The letter contends Twenty Twenty, the production company behind the show.
They gave only two of the 10 commissioned episodes to British East Asians writers to write.
There weren’t enough British East Asian writers with the correct ‘experience’.

Two previously written pilot episodes featured puns like ‘wok and roll’
It had characters referring to each other as ‘Chongers’
The series outline also abounded with factual inaccuracies and cliches.

Happy ALANtine's Day: Steve Coogan is bringing Alan Partridge back to the BBC!




Brexit is on the horizon, the climate's more or less fucked, we're stuck with Orange Twitler for at least another year and the UK remains as divided as ever. So, with all this in mind, thank God for Steve Coogan's Alan Partridge, who's set to return to the BBC on the 25th February with his new series, This Time With Alan Partridge.

The new show features Alan replacing the regular presenter of "a One Show-style magazine programme."

The show won't directly reference Brexit because it's an issue that moves to fast to keep up with, and it's not meant to be a political satire. However, it will feature Partridge grappling with #MeToo, gender politics and everything else that's currently dividing the country. In the way that only Alan can.

    Martina Navratilova criticized for comments about trans women in sport



    She has been criticized after claiming it is a form of "cheating" for transgender women to be allowed to compete in women's sport. She wrote that it was "insane" that "hundreds of athletes who have changed gender by declaration and limited hormone treatment have already achieved honors as women that were beyond their capabilities as men."

    She did more research on the subject : "Well, I've now done that and, if anything, my views have strengthened. To put the argument at its most basic: a man can decide to be female, take hormones if required by whatever sporting organization is concerned, win everything in sight and perhaps earn a small fortune, and then reverse his decision and go back to making babies if he so desires. It's insane and it's cheating. I am happy to address a transgender woman in whatever form she prefers, but I would not be happy to compete against her. It would not be fair."

    Her comments were labeled "transphobic" by trans rights group Trans Actual.
    Navratilova rejected accusations of transphobia, adding that she deplores "what seems to be a growing tendency among transgender activists to denounce anyone who argues against them and to label them all as 'transphobes.'"
    She also highlighted her friendship with Renée Richards, the transgender tennis player. 
    She hopes that Caster Semenya will win her case because she has never taken any medication.
