Zac Efron is sorry in leather pants

I opened yesterday’s blog with Zac Efron. Zac decided to celebrate Martin Luther King Day by connecting the holiday to having amassed 10 million followers. And he threw in some emoji blackface just for sh-ts and giggles. Zac has since removed the post. But the internet is forever. So here, why don’t we all enjoy his dumbassness again:  Full Story

Was watching TV the other night and saw the trailer for How To Be Single, starring Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Leslie Mann, and Alison Brie. This is what I’ve been able to put together from the preview: Dakota just broke up and her friend, Rebel, is encouraging her to thrive at being single. Full Story

Most reviews get headlined by a starring actor, but when it comes to Michael Bay movies, Michael Bay is the star. The subtext of every Michael Bay movie is that if he wasn’t a director he would undoubtedly be the kind of black ops badass all his movies are about. (Except for Pain & Gain, which is not about black ops badasses and is also his worst movie Full Story

Orlando Bloom presented at the Critics’ Choice Awards last night. He also presented at the Globes last weekend. It’s been a long time since we cared about Orlando Bloom for the work of Orlando Bloom, hasn’t it? Orlando Bloom shows up here when he slaps at Justin Bieber. Or when he may or may not be hooking up with Selena Gomez. Full Story

I had two films to get through this weekend, 13 Hours and Ride Along 2, and I saved Ride Along 2 for last, thinking it, as a light-hearted comedy, would rinse out whatever taste 13 Hours left in my mouth, but then I saw Ride Along 2 and proceeded to not laugh even once. Not once. Which is unusual, because Kevin Hart can usually make me laugh. Full Story

Christian Bale called it a “make out” last night during the Critics’ Choice Awards when he was named Best Actor in a Comedy and kissed Adam McKay and other producers at the table on the mouth before getting up on stage to collect his trophy. He also looked great in all black. There was another Christian Bale headline that was making news this weekend though. Full Story

Rachel McAdams was the only Spotlight cast member present at the Critics’ Choice Awards last night and spoke on behalf of the cast when it was named Best Acting Ensemble. “Our cast” is what she said, which is the way it should be said. Once again, just as it was at the Golden Globes, Rachel was joined at the event by Sacha Pfeiffer. Full Story

Yes. I am a click-whore and I just lured you with a few shots of Tom Hardy winking last night after The Revenant premiere in London. He was hanging out with Leonardo DiCaprio. They were both nominated for Oscars yesterday. Mad Max: Fury Road, starring Tom, was also well recognised by the Academy. How much do you love that Leo basically became a Kardashian for this nomination while Tom tried as hard as he could to NOT be nominated …and still got nominated. Full Story

Rumors of a sequel to the found footage monster flick Cloverfield have floated ever since that movie was a surprise hit in 2008. Produced by JJ Abrams, Cloverfield is the movie that kicked off the JJ Abrams School of SECRETY SECRETS, as its ad campaign was mysterious and baffling and featured an all-time great trailer Full Story

Zoolander 2, no, sorry, Zoolander No. 2, opens on February 12. That’s not typically a good month for movies. But it’s also NY Fashion Week. And it’s during award season. Please, please, please, can Derek and Hansel present at the Oscars? Well, first, they have to promote the movie. Full Story

We’re preparing ourselves for the inevitability of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar win, right? There’s always a chance that Bryan Cranston’s Trumbo hustle could pay off, or that Michael Fassbender will get off his ass and decide to participate and upset Leo, but I think we’re all resigned to “Academy Award Winner Leonardo DiCaprio” being his new official title. Full Story
