I love, love, love the word ‘suck’. Not like ‘that sucks’, although I do frequently employ that terminology— but like, ‘you’re being a suck’. Remember when we were kids and someone was always being a sucky baby? Now when we talk about it, we use kids’ language and say someone is ‘taking their toys and going home’, but at least there’s a bit of flounce and drama to doing that. Full Story

It is not my preference to go after actors in the ongoing #OscarsSoWhite and the Hollywood diversity crisis. (Want to be depressed? Read this super sad and regressive study of diversity within industry ranks from the studio C-suites on down.) But actors are usually the most visible people connecting a film to the general public, so they inevitably get asked about this, especially if they themselves are caught up in a whitewashing casting controversy. Full Story

The problem with this dress (Alexander McQueen) is that it feels dated to me. Like I’ve seen it before in Beyonce or JLO music video, either one of them crawling suggestively on a dance floor with their clothes shredded, from all the explosive sex that inevitably happens when they’re around. Full Story

(Lainey: the “Christmas” in the title is my corny addition and not Sarah’s. Am working on a theme today.) Todd Haynes made one of my all-time favorite films, Velvet Goldmine, which is about a young man’s sexual awakening at the hands of a more experienced man during the vibrant and drug-fueled 1970s glam-rock era. Full Story

Harvey Weinstein wrote a piece for The Hollywood Reporter that was published yesterday about award season, specifically about his concerns about award season and how the only films considered are the ones that are released in the fall, ignoring quality features that opened earlier in the year. Full Story

Casting Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily in Pan is not a move that went over well anywhere, and since she’s doing press to promote the movie, which comes out this weekend, Mara is now answering questions about the casting and whitewashing of what should have been a high-profile role for a Native actress. Full Story

Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara are enchanting in Carol

I know, I know, “enchanting” is a stupid word, but I don’t know how else to describe it. The US trailer for Carol, based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel about a mid-century lesbian romance, just came out and it IS enchanting. It’s so beautiful in its period detail and mustard-lit color scheme—giving it the look of an early Kodachrome photograph in which primary colors pop and everything else looks washed out and sallow—and with The Incomparable Cate doing a blown-out smoker’s voice in narration, it’s instantly evocative. Full Story

Not shocking at all – they loved Todd Haynes’s Carol in Cannes. Cate Blanchett? Marvelous, as usual. And Rooney Mara’s performance is being called the best of her career too. They’re saying they could both be nominated for Oscars. Cate’s becoming like Meryl now. Whatever she does will earn her a nomination. Full Story

Sam Rockwell and Leslie Bibb are still together. And they were at Sundance. And that matters to the five of us who care about them, who would for sure rank them top 5 in a cool couple list…even though they are way too cool to be on a cool couple list. Rooney Mara and Theo James are together in Dublin working on a film called Secret Scripture directed by Jim Sheridan. Full Story

With New New Star Wars less than a year away, Disney continues with their plans to expand the Star Wars universe into a multi-franchise superbeast a la Marvel. The next movie in the works is a spin-off to be directed by Gareth Edwards, which is due on December 16, 2016. Details about the movie are scarce, but THR is reporting that Rooney Mara and Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany are testing this week for the female lead. Full Story
