ONTD Original-What should Taylor Swift do about the re-release of "Better Than Revenge"

Assuming you're a loyal reader of ONTD then you definitely know at this point that Taylor Swift is releasing updated and re-recorded versions of her earlier albums. At some point she is going to be releasing the updated version of her third album, Speak Now. But what is she going to do about the slut shaming anthem "Better Than Revenge?"

If you need a refresher-

Collapse )
Now that we know the back story. How should Taylor handle the re-release of Better Than Revenge?

Guess #1-
Release the updated version of the song with no lyric updates and no acknowledgment.
Gonna happen? Unlikely. At the very least OP imagines Taylor will update the lyrics to be less slut shamey.

Guess #2-
Take the song off the album re-release.
Gonna happen?Very unlikely. This risks the Streisand effect.

Guess #3-Submitted by noted ontd member beeweastie "release a new music video for it...with camilla lip syncing for taylor/playing taylor and then taylor playing the other woman and none of the lyrics are changed. and then taylor donates the earnings from the song to the women's charity/cause of camilla's choice, they do some cute photoshoot together, iconic"
Gonna happen?-If there's a God.

Guess #4-Submitted by frenchmoodle "she'll change all of the pronouns to "he" and make it about scooter."
Gonna happen? Honestly, maybe lol.

What do you think, ontd??? Will Camilla get her groove back?
Poll #2110142 Better Than Revenge

How should Taylor handle this song re-release?

Release the song with no updates and no apology
27(10.4%)
Collaborate with Belle on a joint project, girl power and friendship
45(17.3%)
Turn the song into a burn against Scooter
53(20.4%)
Release the song with minimal lyric changes to make it less slut shamey
68(26.2%)
I like taking polls
67(25.8%)

2021 BAFTA Film Awards: "Nomadland" takes top prize



The British Academy of Film and Television presented the second night of its annual film awards, with most of the big categories. The results threw a few (largely, though not exclusively, British-based) curveballs into the roster of names that have dominated the season, most notably denying Chadwick Boseman a posthumous sweep of the top acting honours by awarding the Best Actor prize to local boy Sir Anthony Hopkins for The Father; The Father also upset erstwhile frontrunner Nomadland in Best Adapted Screenplay.

Elsewhere, Carey Mulligan has every right to be annoyed as there's good reason, based on Promising Young Woman's two prizes, to think she might have won again here if the jury had nominated her.  Daniel Kaluuya's sweep continued.  Trial of the Chicago continues to flag, as it was shut out even in Editing, thought to be its best hope.  But the absolute best speech of the night went to Youn Yuh-jung, now the frontrunner for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress with her win here:

'SHAMELESS' Series Finale Post - After Party + How did it end?!

(Sorry mods, here's an updated version with the sources)

New Series Finale stills:



Also, they'll be hosting a live after party with the cast: [Spoiler (click to open)]

The episode is already available for digital subscribers, so how did the show end?

[Spoiler (click to open)]- Frank does not die from the last episode's overdose, but his dementia makes him walk confused on the streets, a woman tells him to wear a mask and he picks up a mask from the floor. He ends up in the hospital and is positive for COVID-19.
- Liam had a bit of a sad end since all he did was looking for Fran but never got to find him.
- Lip finally gets to sell the house and he and Tami are gonna be parents again, he also takes Liam to live with him.
- Debbie and Frannie move to Texas since Debbie met a Milkovich-kinda trash girl and fell for her in two days. (ugh).
- Ian and Mickey move to the west side, Mickey pretends to forget their anniversary and they all end up in a surprise party at the Aliby and they both talk about becoming parents.
- Kev and V are moving to Kentucky and sold everything.
- Carl and his cop buddie agree to buy the Aliby and turn it into a cop bar.
- At the end Frank dies of COVID19, and right before he kicks it he sees himself in his house and the bar with flashes of the kids in the pilot as well as Fiona and Steve. Once Frank is dying he reads the letter he left his kids and it's an updated version of his intro from the pilot (and an american version of the intro of Shameless UK), while everyone gathers around a car on fire singing and drinking, just like the pilot.
- A post credit scenes reveals Frank had so much alcohol in him that the funeral house explodes when they try to cremate him.

10. 'Ode to Barbra Joan' (Season 1, Episode 20) - Bob Mackie

"I always loved to make Fran look like Audrey Hepburn or different characters. For this, I wanted to make it look like different characters, like, ‘Let’s play dress up.’ I went to Elizabeth Courtney Costumes [Bob Mackie’s design studio] where all of Bob’s clothes were. All his designs for Cher were there, too. Do you know how exciting it was to go into those warehouses and see clothes that Cher had worn and they were hanging up on racks? I saw this dress and nothing could be [more] perfect.”
