For All Mankind Roundup



A run down of the major historical changes from season one and the new ones featured in episode one of season two.



Not a big fan of Shantel personally, but I do like Karen. Shantel discusses her experiences auditioning, being at a Challenger exhibition when she got the role of Karen, and the cast's pandemic book club. Article contains spoilers for season 1 of For All Mankind and Season 2 of The Boys.



Joel discusses filming eating scenes, his favorite non-Ed plotline from season two, and shares very vague details from season three (the show has already been renewed), which apparently moves from closer-to-reality to more sci-fi vibes.

Time’s Up Condemns Brett Ratner’s Return



Time’s Up has condemned Ratner who was accused of sexual misconduct in 2017, for his planned return to filmmaking. In November 2017, seven women accused the filmmaker of sexual harassment and misconduct, leading Warner Bros to cut ties with Ratner.

He is set to helm a longtime passion project, a biopic about R&B duo Milli Vanilli.
The director-producer should not be granted a comeback into the industry.
Ratner’s project will mark his first feature directing job since 2014’s “Hercules,” 

Ratner has not offered to redress the harm he caused, instead choosing to file lawsuits against the women who came forward to share their experiences of abuse.

The cast of 'SIX FEET UNDER' reflect on the show's legacy on their 20th anniversary.



- The cast mention that they still get 'the finale was perfect' comments.
- Some nice trivia: Peter Krause also auditioned for David. Rico was written with Freddy Rodriguez in mind. Alan Ball wanted the gay characters to be as sexual as the other ones cause representation back in the day was shit.
- Alan Ball knew Nate was going to die since S1, but the final 3 minutes with everyone's death was a writer's idea that everyone thought was joking.

There's a 15 min retrospective with interviews to the cast @ the source.

ONTD, while it's impossible to top, have you seen any other series finales that come close to be as good as SFU's?

Olivia Rodrigo Reacts To SNL’s Drivers License Sketch




That Olivia Rodrigo rain reign just won’t let up! The new IT Indie Pop Girl of 2021 reacted to seeing her no. 1 hit song “drivers license” featured on Saturday Night Live. The singer shared a clip on her Instagram Stories and tweeted out a message, writing, “DRIVERS LICENSE SNL SKETCH IS THE BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER IM SHAKING.”

The sketch featured guest host Regé-Jean Page and a bunch of the show’s male cast members gathered in a pool hall as they offered a detailed explanation of Rodrigo’s song — and its origin story about the love triangle involving the singer herself, her co-star Joshua Bassett and Sabrina Carpenter.

Rodrigo recently celebrated her 18th birthday and her debut single spent a 6th week at no. 1 in the UK, and is expected to do so in the US as well this week.

ONTD, have you accepted Olivia Rodrigo as your new Pop Lord and Savior or are you still confused and in denial with the Youths of today?

The LA Times releases an article about the troubles at the HFPA


• The Golden Globes has long had the vibe of a boozy family reunion when compared to the prep school prom vibe of the Oscars. They're known for their laid back and at times baffling nominations and wins. But this year the nominations were met with outrage rather than the usual shrugs.

• The 87 member voting body snubbed Oscar frontrunners Ma Rainey's Black Bottom and Judas and the Black Messiah in the Best Motion Picture Drama category. Michaela Coel's HBO Max series was snubbed in favor of Netflix's widely hated Emily in Paris. Sia's offensive and should be career ender, Music received two nominations. It should be noted here that the small organization has no black members within its ranks and unlike the AMPAS (the voting body behind the Academy Awards) has made no concentrated effort to diversify or expand their organization.

• Now a week before the ceremony the LA Times writes about the trouble brewing at the HFPA. This includes several lawsuits that allege HFPA members receiving thousands of dollars worth of perks from studios and stars in exchange for nominations. The Times also discovered that HFPA regularly doles out substantial payments to its own members, running up $2 million in payments just last year.

• The writer also mentions that apparently more than 30 voting HFPA members were flown to France to visit the Emily in Paris set and were put up in $1,400 a night hotel rooms, and had a special news conference and a swanky lunch at a private museum.

Chris D’Elia Addresses Sexual Misconduct Allegations



Chris D’Elia posted a 10-minute YouTube video in which he addressed the sexual misconduct allegations leveled against him in June 2020. He maintained that all of his relationships have been consensual and legal. But he stated that he has a “problem” and that sex “controlled” his life.

D'Elia recounted that "having sex got a lot easier" for him after he rose to fame in the comedy space. He has realized in recent months that he was "treating sex like it's casual and being flippant with people," which has made him feel "shameful." His celebrity played a part in his behavior. His sex habits soon became a "lifestyle" that he didn't know "how to stop."

D’Elia said he was seeking treatment for his problem with sex. His “life-controlling” problem derailed his relationships, he cheated on most of the women he had been with, including his fiancé. He has been “doing the work” to be a better role model for his son and has been in recovery for the past couple of months.

Back in June, he was accused of grooming teenage girls. D’Elia most recently appeared in the second season of “You,” where he portrayed a comedian who sexually abuses girls.

Dumpy the chihuahua catapults Kaley Cuoco to fame



A-list star Dumpy has shared personal footage of his home life with Kaley Cuoco. No joke, it's hard to find chihuahuas who realise that it might be worth it to share the spotlight with a woman.

Dumpy bravely addresses his struggles with body image and mental health in this raw and emotional new video. With a new lease on life, Dumpy spends indulgent days wrapped up in cozy blankets before heading to the park to flaunt his cat collar. Maybe that's not a park, though, maybe that's actually his backyard acreage because ya boi Dumpy is rich as shit.

Unfortunately, by the time you read this Dumpy has been cancelled for travelling to New York and Toronto without a mask during the panny.
