Dear Gossips,

It’s been six days since the Oscar nominations were announced and every day criticism of the Academy’s pattern of exclusion continues to grow as more and more actors are speaking up and out against the lack of diversity represented on the supposed list of what was the best in film over the last year.  Read Full Intro

Idris Elba was Netflix’s best chance at an Oscar nomination for Beasts Of No Nation. But the Academy isn’t ready yet for Netflix to come and f-ck up the order of the film industry. He was left off the list of Best Supporting Actors. When Straight Outta Compton was called for Best Original Screenplay, I thought, OMG, Compton will make Best Picture! Nope. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

On the one hand, at the 2016 Golden Globes last night, it was all about The Revenant. These were the key words to the film: struggle, survival, the human spirit, and I think Leo threw “trust” in there too. Team Revenant was struggling, surviving, trusting, and embracing the human spirit.  Read Full Intro

So this post satisfies both the people who care about the Globes and the ones who don’t give a sh-t about awards and just want to get off. Full Story

Idris Elba. His line for Superdry. So they named the store after him, temporarily. But still. I'm a monogram whore. I want my name all over everything. So to me this is badass. Today I opened with Sly Stallone and how the success of Creed might result in a supporting actor nomination for him - perhaps the sentimental story of the Oscar season. Full Story

Idris Elba is in New York. Check him out, fine as f-ck, walking around in a red beanie yesterday. Earlier this week, Idris, Abraham Attah, and Cary Fukunaga were promoting Beasts Of No Nation at TimesTalks. Netflix is doing whatever they can to make these nominations happen. What didn’t happen is Idris being named the Sexiest Man Alive. Full Story

I heard some industry folks at TIFF sh*t-talking Netflix for allegedly overpaying for Cary Fukunaga’s Beasts of No Nation, Netflix’s first original feature film. They were of the opinion that Netflix will keep overpaying for movies and go bust, but just a few years ago TV executives were saying the same thing, and now look where we are. Full Story
