Good sweet LORD, Taraji P. Henson, you looked like something else last night. The dress and the hair and the sleepy-smoky eye makeup. Obviously she’s fantastic looking and has had other great looks this awards season, but this one, even though it wasn’t the most revealing or creative or whatever, was drop dead stunning-sexy. Full Story

Hidden Figures had a big opening weekend. There are no words to express how happy this makes me. The fact that this film made money has power. It means that, hopefully, we’ll get to see more stories about the nameless, faceless women of colour who made history. As Lainey mentioned in her intro yesterday Full Story

The cast of Hidden Figures received the Best Ensemble Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival last night. The film opens everywhere Friday.

Jeff Bezos, the head of Amazon, and Matt Damon hosted a holiday party for Manchester By The Sea this weekend in LA. That’s officially what they’re calling it, a “holiday party”, which, I guess is a new euphemism for “campaign event”? It’s not like they’re actually exchanging gifts there. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I love Annette Bening’s voice. And her diction. She speaks with such intention. And the sound of it is so rich, so thick, I feel like if she were reading to me I could remember every word.

The wage gap is real. It exists in every industry, at every level of industry, but in the film industry the wage gap isn’t just a product of gender/racial bias, it’s also the result of a scaled compensation system that rewards stars more than anyone else.

I look forward to seeing Taraji P Henson on a carpet. I was really, really looking forward to seeing her on this carpet. I thought for sure she’d be a contender for best dressed. And then she showed up, in the most boring yellow dress ever, and it seemed like she opted out. Full Story
