I texted Lainey the other night after seeing Casey Affleck’s new movie, Triple 9, that I think he might have A Moment coming.

Ovarian cancer causes more deaths than any other cancer of the reproductive system, even though the survival rate can be as high at 94% if caught early. Early detection is critical. Full Story

Burberry show at London Fashion Week. Nicholas Hoult in a leather jacket. That’s a good present, right? God he is SO cute. Anyway, he took his sister, Rosanna. Rosanna is also an actor. She’s 32. And I’m only telling you her age because I’m playing Duana right now and asking about Rosanna for that generation. Full Story

Ryan Coogler was honoured by the American Black Film Festival the other night with the Rising Star Award. The award was presented to him by Octavia Spencer who he directed in Fruitvale Station. People keep saying that Ryan is an emerging talent. I feel like he’s kinda arrived now, non? Have you seen Creed yet? If you haven’t, you don’t have to wait long. Full Story

It is not my preference to go after actors in the ongoing #OscarsSoWhite and the Hollywood diversity crisis. (Want to be depressed?
