Daisy Ridley was chosen to take Star Wars into a new awakening. She spent all those moments shooting in secrecy. Then she couldn’t talk about it. Finally she started promoting it. Then we saw it. And we understood. Daisy Ridley as Rey is, yes, she is the future. Daisy has started working on Episode VIII. Full Story

I should point out that Whoopi wasn’t inflammatory — is she ever? Occasionally tone deaf and inevitably a little older and more out-of-touch than I remember her, but basically fine. This is not actually about her, exactly. This is about this tweet that happened relatively early in the red carpet hours. Full Story

Lainey: The monologue was the expectation, wasn’t it? Chris Rock went hard in his Oscar monologue, for sure. In some unpredictable ways too. But it didn’t stop at the monologue. It wasn’t like, let’s get this monologue over with and get on with Hollywood fake sh-t for the rest of the show, like over 3 hours. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

As mentioned yesterday, Chris Rock isn’t talking until he takes the stage on Sunday as the host of the Oscars. But he did step out for the Essence Black Women in Hollywood event. It’s an important event to support, obviously, and also, this is a point he’s making, non? He has a big job ahead, in just 2 days.  Read Full Intro

Rachel McAdams will be at the Oscars on Sunday as a presenter and as a nominee – her first for Best Supporting Actress for her work in Spotlight. As previously noted, she won’t win. For her, the nomination really is the victory. Over the last year and a half, she’s been showing the industry what she can be, what she wants to be. Full Story

Henry Cavill is confirmed to present at the Oscars on Sunday. Batman vs Superman opens in exactly a month. So they’ve decided it will be Superman repping the movie and not Batfleck. Which kinda makes sense when you consider that Jennifer Garner is also presenting. Henry has never been to the Oscars – or if he has, he’s never been photographed there. Full Story

Boasting an impressive cast that includes Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Aaron Paul, Anthony Mackie, Woody Harrelson, and Kate Winslet, Gritty Cop Drama is exactly the kind of gritty cop drama you get sucked into watching on cable on a Saturday afternoon. It’s got just enough going on under the hood to not feel like a complete waste of time, but it’s also not interested in saying anything new or interesting about gritty cops, so it’s easy enough to forget all about it once it’s over. Full Story
