I love it when I need to write about someone and they oblige me with new photos. Idris Elba was nominated for two Golden Globe awards this morning. And here he is looking FINE in blue leather today in London. 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.

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.

Me, in a small room with Idris and Charlie. Full Story
