A conversation came up at work the other day about the actresses considered to be “America’s Sweethearts.” The usual suspects were named like Sandra Bullock, Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Garner. Then, Gina Rodriguez came up. I don’t think anyone agreed with me but I consider Gina Rodriguez to be in this category of America’s Sweethearts. Full Story

US Weekly published an article yesterday about Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx’s relationship. I don’t have a lot of faith in US’s reporting anymore, ever since the magazine was acquired by American Media Inc (The National Enquirer, Star Magazine, etc) but I found the description of Katie and Jamie’s situation interesting, particularly the wording:  “Their relationship works because of the love, compassion, trust and support they have for each other,” a source close to Holmes explains in the new issue of Us Weekly. Full Story

Chadwick Boseman and Lupita Nyong’o are both presenting at the Oscars on Sunday. No idea if they’re presenting together, but they’re both riding the Black Panther high—and it will be the dominant film again on Oscar weekend which, if Get Out were to pull off some kind of upset, would be serendipitous—so they both get to do that superhero strut on stage, together or separate. Full Story

I love pilot announcements at this time of year because there are inevitably surprises in terms of what gets picked up, and because show ‘loglines’ – the short, two-or-three-sentence descriptions of upcoming shows – inevitably look different when there’s a star visual attached. Full Story

Chris Hemsworth could be a Man in Black

If Sony simply must continue the Men in Black franchise, rebooting it with Chris Hemsworth is not the worst idea I’ve heard. (The worst idea was combining MiB with the Jump Street franchise, but that, thankfully, seems to have been abandoned.) It sounds like the new plan is a soft reboot in the vein of Jurassic World, with a new cast carrying the story as Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are not expected to return. Full Story

An almost-Royal Oscars?

The Academy is celebrating the 90th Oscars this weekend. The Oscars are always a big ass deal in Hollywood but when it’s a nice round number like that, they usually want to make it even more extra. And the challenge with the Oscars every year, though they may not admit it, is that many of the films nominated aren’t seen by most of the television viewing audience. Full Story

What Else?

How do you feel about gravy? I LOVE gravy. Even the gravy that most of you might find disgusting. I like gravy best when it’s thick and clumpy and you know they’ve dumped all kinds of corn starch in there to make it that way. If there is gravy during the meal, I will put it on everything. Full Story

Despite his recent apology tour, and the revisiting of some very gross remarks he made re: Roman Polanski and Samantha Geimer, Sony is going ahead with Quentin Tarantino’s movie that he insists is not about Sharon Tate even though it will feature an actress portraying Sharon Tate and is set in 1969. Full Story
