ONTD, who do you think will win at the Emmys?

Oh, Would ya Look at That? The 2020 VMAs will be Outside and No Longer INSIDE Barclays Center



I just - this is some woo woo. Executives who are probably a little more money hungry than optimistic thought they could hold the 2020 VMAs INSIDE Brooklyn's Barclay Center. Welp, now it's being held at various, outdoor locations throughout NYC with no audience, similar to the set up of this year's BET awards.

Mary Magdalan launches new website



Alt-rock singer/songwriter Mary Magdalan launched her revamped website, which details her hiatus and reasons for returning to music.

Mary started out in a 3-piece band on Myspace back in 2006 (14 years ago!!) and went on to release 3 full-length records, a mixtape, and a behind-the-scenes DVD within a 7-year span.

From Mary's website: It has been real a musical journey for me. When I started I was filled with so much rage. The only release I found was this music. Pity Girl was extremely healing for me. It felt so good to share my experiences with people who felt the same way. As I kept making music I began to feel as tho weights were being lifted from my shoulders and I realized the pain and rage were gone. So I stepped away.

Its source material will be a 2017 Esquire article of the same name by journalist Jesse Baron, who will serve as consulting producer.

Lena Waithe Developing Open-Marriage Drama at Amazon (Exclusive)



The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Lena Waithe is creating an new drama series about open relationships for Amazon.

Waithe just finished the pilot script and the working title for the series is “Open.”

"I’ve never been in an open marriage, but it’s fascinating to me," Waithe tells THR. "We live in a world where, if I told you I cheated on my wife, you would be like, “Yeah, that’s the way it goes.” But if I told you that I’m in an open marriage, it would be as if I told you I’m joining the Church of Scientology."

Waithe also goes on to say that society had a conservative view of marriage and that we should “reevaluate what marriage looks like for us as a country.”

Waithe signed a deal with Amazon in 2019. Waithe and her production company, Hillman Grad Productions, are currently working on the horror anthology, Them: Covenant.

Popular Comic Strips That Became Flop Movies; ONTD Original

Some of the first comic strips appeared in U.S. newspapers in the late 1800s and for most of the 1900s there were at least 200 comic strips & cartoon panels. During the week these would often be in black & white, with the Sunday comic section, sometimes called the funnies (because the strips were humorous, although some were more like serialized soap operas), usually being in color. Since the 1990s comic strips have been on the decline due to such factors as changing tastes in entertainment & the declining relevance of newspapers in general. However some are making the transition to digital platforms. (The OP recommends checking out the 2014 documentary Stripped which covers this better than she ever could.)

Several comic strips have been turned into movies, the heyday being the 1930s to the 1950s, with the comic strip Blondie inspiring 29 movies alone during this period. This post focuses on the more modern era (1980 to present) where comic strip based movies are few and just not that good.


This is a follow up to the previous posts of Hit TV Shows That Became Flop Movies & Hit Movies That Became Flop TV Shows.

Note; The general rule of thumb is that a movie has to make three times its budget at the box office to be considered a hit.


Technically based on the Broadway musical which was based on the long-running comic strip (1924-2010) about an orphan girl, Annie, & her dog, Sandy, that are taken in by a wealthy man, Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks. The comic touched on adult issues such as organized labor, The New Deal & Communism.
The 1982 movie, directed by John Huston, has Annie (Aileen Quinn) & her dog Sandy being taken in by Warbucks (Albert Finny) temporarily to improve his public image. Musical numbers ensue.
The movie made $57 million on a $50 million budget, a TV film sequel Annie: A Royal Adventure! came out in 1995. Disney & Columbia Pictures produced a version for TV in 1999 with Alicia Morton in the title role Victor Garbsr as Warbucks and Columbia produced another flop version, blamed on the infamous Sony leak, with Quvenzhané Wallis as Annie & Jamie Foxx as millionaire Will Stacks in 2014.

Ricky Gervais discusses ‘cancel culture’



Ricky Gervais has shared his thoughts on ‘cancel culture’

“If it is choosing not to watch a comedian because you don’t like them, that’s everyone’s right. But when people are trying to get someone fired because they don’t like their opinion about something that’s nothing to do with their job, that’s what I call cancel culture and that’s not cool."

“You turning off your own TV isn’t censorship. You trying to get other people to turn off their TV, because you don’t like something they’re watching, that’s different.”

“Everyone’s allowed to call you an arsehole, everyone’s allowed to stop watching your stuff, everyone’s allowed to burn your DVDs, but you shouldn’t have to go to court for saying a joke that someone didn’t like."

“And that’s what we get dangerously close to. If you don’t agree to someone’s right to say something you don’t agree with, you don’t agree with freedom of speech.”

“You are allowed to have things in common with bad people as long it’s not the bad things. I’m a vegetarian and I love dogs, like Hitler. But the only thing I have in common with Hitler are the good bits!”

Trailer for Disney's MAGIC CAMP



The third Disney movie to eschew it's theatrical release and go straight to Disney+ (Though, in fairness, this was pulled from theaters long before COVID-19 or even Disney+ was known to the public bc of Jeffrey Tambor, sir not appearing in this trailer.)

Here's the first and presumably only trailer for something coming out in 4 days.

Andy Tuckerman, at the urging of his former mentor and Magic Camp owner Roy Preston, returns to the camp of his youth hoping to reignite his career. Instead, he finds inspiration in his ragtag bunch of rookie magicians.

Don't watch this on Disney+ on August 14th.

Prince Harry pal ‘punished’ over Meghan Markle romance doubts

31220-meghan-markle-prince-harry



In the new book Finding Freedom, Omid Scobie reveals that one of Harry's best friends, Tom "Skippy" Inskip, told Harry to take things slower with Meghan, and that advice didn't go over well.

Tom told Harry that he and Meghan should live together for a while before "doing anything more serious."

Omid insists that Tom's advice "came from a good place," but Harry "didn’t totally see it that way."

Harry said that "It really hurt him that someone he was so close to would not trust his judgment," a source close to Harry explained for the book.

That’s when Harry decided to “punish” Skippy and his wife, Lara Hughes-Young, by making sure they didn’t receive an invitation to Harry and Meghan’s private wedding party at Frogmore House.

Skippy’s wedding in Jamaica in 2017 was one of Meghan’s first appearances with the prince.

Jennifer Lawrence sells her NYC apartment

There are a few perks that come with being one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood. One of those perks is beautiful homes, and Jennifer Lawrence is no stranger to the life of luxury. Four years after the Silver Linings Playbook actress purchased a gorgeous New York penthouse in 2016 on the Upper East Side at the top of The Laurel, she's letting it go. Variety reports Lawrence, 29, has sold the home for $9.9 million.

Jennifer originally purchased the home for $15.6 million before listing it for $15.45 million in July of 2019, and then dropping it $14.25 million. In January, the asking price went down once again to $12 million. No doubt Jennifer wanted a new place before settling down with new husband Cooke Maroney in October.

The home is located in a 30-floor condominium and is 3,000-square-foot with two-floor outdoor terraces. Not to mention bright and airy spaces inside and beautiful outdoor spaces overlooking the city. The place boasts three bedrooms, five baths plus, a full-time doorman, gym, pool, sauna, screening room and, of course, her own private storage.
