In case you thought 2020 couldn’t get any worse, Merriam-Webster just officially recognized “irregardless” as a word.😱— Jamie Lee Curtis (@jamieleecurtis) July 6, 2020
Scream Queen and Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis took to Twitter on Monday to share with her followers that Merriam-Webster added the word “irregardless” to its dictionary. “In case you thought 2020 couldn’t get any worse, Merriam-Webster just officially recognized “irregardless” as a word,” she wrote. Clearly the actress does not agree with the decision with many on social media sharing similar sentiments. Others however argued that “irregardless” is a word and that “complaining is tired at best and elitist at worst.”
[Merriam-Webster answers your Frequently Asked Questions About Irregardless]Is irregardless a word?
Yes. It may not be a word that you like, or a word that you would use in a term paper, but irregardless certainly is a word. It has been in use for well over 200 years, employed by a large number of people across a wide geographic range and with a consistent meaning. That is why we, and well-nigh every other dictionary of modern English, define this word.
Does irregardless mean the same thing as regardless?
Yes. We define irregardless as "regardless." Many people find irregardless to be a nonsensical word, as the ir- prefix usually functions to indicates negation; however, in this case it appears to function as an intensifier. Similar ir- words, while rare, do exist in English, including irremediless ("remediless"), irresistless ("resistless") and irrelentlessly ("relentlessly).

Why ‘Hamilton’ Can’t Win Any Oscars https://t.co/ZzkidKYvA4— Variety (@Variety) July 6, 2020
there has been some twitter chatter about Hamilton's potential of winning Oscars, but AMPAS shut that one down fast
Doe to Covid the Academy did suspend the "must be in cinemas for a bit" rule, but still:
“Recorded stage productions are not eligible for consideration.”
It might still be in play for the star fucking Golden Globes tho!
Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
“It covered so many things and was beautifully written. You don’t expect the ending and you want to change it desperately. It’s hard to describe without spoiling it though!"
About: Lydia is dead. But they don’t know this yet.
So begins this exquisite novel about a Chinese American family living in 1970s small-town Ohio. Lydia is the favorite child of Marilyn and James Lee, and her parents are determined that she will fulfill the dreams they were unable to pursue. But when Lydia’s body is found in the local lake, the delicate balancing act that has been keeping the Lee family together is destroyed, tumbling them into chaos.
A profoundly moving story of family, secrets, and longing, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, uncovering the ways in which mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives, to understand one another.

have a book ever made you cry (or at least made you feel sad?) // book post 📚
Netflix has renewed dark comedy "Dead to Me" starring Christina Applegate, Linda Cardellini and James Marsden for a 3rd and final season.
Kevin Smith has revealed Joss Whedon badmouthed fellow Marvel director Zack Snyder on the Justice League set. On his podcast, Smith recalled a time when he visited the set of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and talked with a special effects guy who had worked on both Snyder and Whedon's Justice League sets.
Remember when I went to the Skywalker set, some people had worked on both versions of Solo and both versions of Justice League. The special effects guy said there was a fair amount of trashing Zack's version of the movie on set by Joss… that [Whedon] would cut down, dismiss, and be negative about Zack's version, which he had seen and all these people had made together without him.
This comes after actor Ray Fisher called Whedon's on set behavior "gross, abusive [and] unprofessional."
Previous instances of bad behavior from Joss Whedon include cheating on his wife with employees and fans, writing a totally sexist Wonder Woman script and, oh yeah, tormenting and firing Charisma Carpenter from Angel for daring to get pregnant.
No actor on the JL set could stand the sight of Joss Whedon.— Sheraz Farooqi (@SherazFarooqi_) July 6, 2020
He constantly berated the actors, verbally abused some, mocked Zack in front of them & much more
Ray Fisher has stood up but slowly others will follow. Not sure when Gal will talk, but put two & two together for now.. https://t.co/UP13r021la
I am EXTREMELY DELIGHTED -- like, OVER THE MOON -- to announce that @thehikarism will direct the 'Eleanor & Park' film being produced by @picturestart and Plan B Entertainment. pic.twitter.com/clRnulJEyV— Rainbow Rowell (@rainbowrowell) July 5, 2020
Author Rainbow Rowell announced this weekend that Japanese filmmaker Hikari will direct the film adaptation of her book "Eleanor and Park" and that casting will start next week. Picturestart and Brad Pitt's company Plan B will produce. The film centers on two teen misfits who fall in love ini 1980s Omaha, Nebraska. The book has been beloved for its plus-sized lead, but heavily criticized for its anti-Asian and anti-Black racism and its mishandling of a biracial Korean American character.
