How To Get Away With Murder Season 2 Episode 13 recap Okay, look. The advent of technology has deeply screwed onscreen storytelling. I saw a movie at TIFF last year that isn’t even out yet that used an actual answering machine to reveal information. An answering machine. In 2015. People on TV make phone calls when they never would, because you need to hear them do it (and because those pop-up texts onscreen still never catch on). Full Story

Dear Gossips,

You know that TMZ piece a few weeks ago in The New Yorker? Click here for a refresher. It was kinda underwhelming in a way because we’d been waiting so long for it and, well, if you live on the internet, it probably wasn’t new for you that celebrities call the paps and work on their own leaks.  Read Full Intro

Some people were wondering whether or not Brad Pitt would be at the Oscars since he’s a producer on The Big Short. It was a Brangeless Oscars. And many of you have written to say that this year’s Oscars were short on big glamour, big excitement. Did that have anything to do with it? Would it have made a difference if they were there? Oh please, come on. Full Story

Out of all of the excellent coverage Duana and Lainey put together for the Oscars – the dozens of posts and thousands of words – one really stuck out for me: Duana mentioned Dave Grohl! She gave him runner-up status for Mr. Congeniality (top spot went to Common, so I’m not mad). Full Story

So it was just a breakfast with Naomi Campbell then. Click here for a refresher. Because Bradley Cooper is now in Paris with Irina Shayk and, conveniently, they were photographed walking down the street together after people were speculating about what was going on with Naomi. Full Story

The second of three Olympic-themed movies coming down the pipe—sandwiched in between Race and The Bronze—Eddie the Eagle is a charming crowd-pleaser about a perpetual loser who games the system to become an Olympian. It’s too loosey-goosey with the facts to count as a real biopic—the film includes integral characters conjured out of thin air—but Eddie the Eagle nails the spirit of the underdog story of Michael “Eddie” Edwards, a British Olympian who participated in the 1988 Olympics. Full Story
