JK Rowling is opening the Wizarding World to everyone

Sarah Posted by Sarah at March 9, 2016 15:51:57 March 9, 2016 15:51:57

The first excerpt from JK Rowling’s History of Magic in North America was posted yesterday, and it focused on Native American wizards. As a half-Oglala Lakota kid who grew up searching for any signs of my culture that wasn’t a mascot, I almost cried reading it. The world of Harry Potter has been uniquely European and primarily British, but now that world is expanding outward and embracing other traditions and cultures. Full Story

If you loved The West Wing, if you miss them, all of them, you have already clicked on this post and are looking through the pictures and maybe crying a little and watching the video. Also you may have told Aaron Sorkin to f-ck himself. This is what Duana and I do all the time. The West Wing. Sigh. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I can’t wait until tonight. JK Rowling’s giving us a bedtime story tonight. By the time you read this, it will be past 2pm GMT and the first installment of the History of Magic in North America – basically a study guide ahead of the November release of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them – will be published on Pottermore  Read Full Intro

I know I’ll catch hell from the Frozen fans for this, but Zootopia is the best move from Disney Animation since The Lion King (it also just set a box office record).  First of all, animals wearing people clothes is always the best, and every movie could be improved by the presence of an animal who thinks it’s people. Full Story

You’re about to punch me. Because the Oscars just ended a little over a week ago and already I’m talking about next year’s awards. Before you go for my face though…wait! This is about Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, does that help? As you know, the two worked on Damian Chazelle’s Whiplash follow-up, La La Land, last year. Full Story

Elijah Wood and Nicolas Cage in THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER

Sarah Posted by Sarah at March 8, 2016 17:54:28 March 8, 2016 17:54:28

Elijah Wood used his Lord of the Rings juice to push through passion projects like the criminally underseen TV show Wilfred, and genre movies like the Maniac remake and Cooties. But apparently he’s grown tired of being a purveyor of fine niche entertainment and has entered the ironic portion of his career because he is willfully choosing to star in movies with Vin Diesel and Nicolas Cage. Full Story

Jada Pinkett Smith and Willow were front row at the Chanel RTW presentation today. It’s Jada’s first major appearance since Chris Rock called her out on stage at the Oscars. She wasn’t invited to the Oscars and while her complaint about it may or may not have been motivated by Will Smith not getting nominated, she was invited by Karl Lagerfeld to occupy prime seating at his show. Full Story

If you have “Kit Harington tells bald-faced lies to the press” on your Game of Thrones Liar Bingo card, mark that sh*t off because Kit Harington told a bald-faced lie to the press. Speaking to Time Out London about the fate of Jon Snow, Harington said, “Look, I’m not in the show any more. Full Story

How do you know you’re a narcissist? When you think everything is about you. When Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth got back together, I was hot for about 5 minutes. Then they started selling it to me like a piece a of sh-t on the lid of a trash can. About how she had to “earn” him back. Full Story
