Inside the $225,000 gift bag for Oscar nominees

The gift bag, which is not affiliated with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, will be sent to all 20 acting nominees and the five men nominated for best director, Distinctive Assets, the Los Angeles-based company behind the goodie bags, said on Friday.

"It's the highest value we've ever put together," said Distinctive Assets founder Lash Fary, who has been assembling the bags for 18 years.

This year’s top swag includes a $78,000, 12-day yacht cruise; $20,000 of facial rejuvenation treatments; and $20,000 in matchmaking services.

The nearly 80 items also include clothing, gadgets and a 24-carat gold-plated vape pen that Fary said was selected with Leonardo DiCaprio in mind.
More than a dozen items have philanthropic elements, including a book that empowers young girls and a cleanser that supports showers for the homeless.

How 'Birds of Prey' Deconstructs the Male Gaze

-Writer Ciara Wardlow argues that Cathy Yan's recently-released Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of one Harley Quinn) is one of the most effective deconstructions of the male gaze seen in mainstream film

-Female authorship is present in every aspect of the film, from Harley's VO narration to the female director (Cathy Yan), screenwriter (Christina Hodson), and producer (star Margot Robbie)

-Throughout the movie, the camera follows Harley's actions and desires rather than her body, a choice further emphasized by the contrast between her costuming in Birds of Prey as opposed to Suicide Squad (the full piece is worth a read)

Have you watched Birds of Prey, ONTD?

Oscars 2020: Best Dressed & Otherwise


Another award season is over, but one question remains: whose Oscars dress reigned supreme? From what I gathered while reading the comments in the red carpet post, this year didn't leave the best impression on ONTD viewers, but there were a few dresses that stood above the rest, and a few more that prompted questions like "why?" and "does her stylist hate her?"

Above, Natalie Portman wears a Dior dress and cape ensemble, with the names of female directors (Lorene Scafaria, Lulu Wang, Greta Gerwig, Mati Diop, Marielle Heller, Alma Har'el, Melina Matsoukas and Celine Sciamma) stitched on to the edge of her cape. You can see it without the cape under the cut, along with the rest of the standouts from this year's awards.

'Cats' Jokes at Oscars receiver Furrocious Backlash from VFX Artists

- 4000 VFX artists are yowling mad about the joke.
- They are contesting the idea that they alone are responsible for Universal's humongous flop.

"On a night that is all about honoring the work of talented artists, it is immensely disappointing that The Academy made visual effects the butt of a joke. It demeaned the global community of expert VFX practitioners doing outstanding, challenging and visually stunning work to achieve the filmmakers’ vision. Our artists, technicians and innovators deserve respect for their remarkable contributions to filmed entertainment, and should not be presented as the all-too-convenient scapegoat in service for a laugh,” the statement continued.

- VFX artists on other movies, also ironically about cats, "The Lion King" and "The Jungle Book" defended the "Cats" VFX artists.

The View: Gavin Newsom, Hot Topics

Whoopi is out (back Wednesday). Meghan is out (back Tuesday). Ana is here, and Tyra Banks is guest co-host.

Gavin Newsom



California Governor Gavin Newsom

Summary of conversation [Spoiler (click to open)]
[Am I allowed to like him? He’s hot. I’d hit it.]
Gavin and T45 are in a feud. Plays clip from SOTU. Stanctary and lol @ Nancy face. Joy thinks he hates California because all his enemies are there – Newsom, Pelosi, Schiff. Gavin rattles off eleventy billion reasons California is better than T45. Plus 67 lawsuits that they keep winning. The future happens here first. He wants people to have a sense of optimism. It’s not just about DC, if you want to drive change, go local, lots of good things happen. Sunny asks about all the attacks and will that affect him. Says he will not capitulate, he will stand up for what’s right. Drags Lindsey Graham.

Ana asks about Dem candidates. Gavin endorsed Kamala but has kept quiet since she dropped out. He doesn’t commit, but he was just at National Governors Association and there is deep anxiety that the party will fracture between the Sanders-Warren wing vs the moderate wing. Not his point of view per se, but privately there is anxiety. Ana anxiety is that T45 gets another 4 years. Gavin is confident we can beat T45, talks about 14 contests on Super Tuesday. Tyra says he’s said he has no interest in President but what about Vice President. He hedges, but essentially is like nah. [A Calif. VP doesn’t win the EC]. They move to economics. Dems always sort out the deficit, then GOP mess it up, then Dems come back and fix it. Tyra still wants Gavin as VP.

Sexual Assault of Men Played for Laughs - Part 2 Female Perpetrators

It’s hard to overstate just how common jokes about men being sexually assaulted or harassed are in entertainment media. Comedic situations are typically designed to demean, humiliate, or emasculate a male character for being the victim, or potential victim, of sexual violence. This is the 2nd of two video essays on this topic. Part 1 focuses on humor involving men sexually assaulting or harassing other men. Part 2 examines media in which women are depicted as the perpetrators.

How Margot Robbie Went From Pinup To Hit Producer


Article says that Margot Robbie's image following The Wolf of Wall Street reflected her character: "a gold digger, a pinup adorned in nouveau riche trashiness. Far more Lana Turner, or even Marilyn Monroe, than Audrey Hepburn.

"It was only in hindsight that Robbie’s actual skill in her performance as Naomi became clear," the author says.

She's refocused the public's attention away from her body and toward her talent and her work. Three goals she and her production team discuss at regular check-ins: quality, variety, longevity

Do you agree with this article? I think some of it is reaching because I don't think Margot was "pigeonholed" at first and she was always, to an extent, viewed with critical adoration.
