Kathryn Hahn’s next move

Posted by Sarah on "\/Date(1632323441633)\/"

Kathryn Hahn was widely expected to win an Emmy on Sunday night, but in one of the evening’s few genuine upsets, Julianne Nicholson won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series Etc. Hahn will just have to settle for her MTV popcorns and being everyone’s favorite right now. Also, she can take another run at the Emmys, this time in a leading category, after she portrays comedy icon Joan Rivers in a series for Showtime. Hahn will star as Rivers in The Comeback Girl, a bio-series set in the 1980s, after Rivers’ ground-breaking talk show, The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers, was cancelled and her husband, Edgar Rosenberg, died by suicide. The series will focus on Rivers emerging from these devastating personal and professional losses, which includes her rebranding as a fashion maven by way of red carpet punditry. Hahn is collaborating with her old Northwestern classmate, Greg Berlanti, on the series.  ...Full Story


Today's Intro

Dear Gossips, Lil Nas X’s debut album, Montero, was released last Friday and as Cody wrote in his review yesterday, this is Lil Nas proving that he’s more than a troll, more than a one-hit wonder, that he can back up the shock value with melody and lyrics – the musicality is there, and along with the charm and irreverence, the introspection and conflict are there too. Promotion, as we’ve seen, has never been a problem for Lil Nas. And still, even though it’s not surprising that he’s great at it, he consistently manages to surprise. As part of the promotional tour for Montero, Lil Nas X showed up on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, and performed Dolly Parton’s “Jolene”. It’s a great song, which is why it’s covered a lot. But, as the kids say, it hits different when Lil Nas X is doing it. “I’m begging of you please, don’t take my man” hits different. And of course it’s not the only subversion that Lil Nas is serving here. Remember, his first disruption was “Old Town Road”, inviting himself into country music territory without a welcome. So they tried to evacuate him, and instead of successfully removing him from that space, he ended up conquering it. “Old Town Road” is the longest-running #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. That’s history. With his first single.  Two years later, Lil Nas X and the gay agenda are coming home to his country roots with a raw and sensitive version of one of the most beloved and well-known country tracks that, once again, defies expectation and gives an already well-known song even more dimension and accessibility.  Yours in gossip, Lainey
