Mary Queen of Scots is a slightly anachronistic and completely ahistorical telling of the feud between Mary, Queen of Scots—the lack of proper punctuation in the title drives me nuts—and Queen Elizabeth I. Take this as even less of a history lesson than The Favourite Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Sandra Bullock was in Sao Paolo this week promoting her new movie Bird Box which premieres on Netflix on December 21. Basically Netflix’s strategy is to get you to stay home during the holiday season and not leave the couch.  Read Full Intro

Anna Wintour didn’t mind The Devil Wears Prada so much when she found out that Meryl Streep would be playing her. I mean, at first she may have claimed she wasn’t into it but, over time, it seems like it has grown on her, especially since Miranda Priestley is basically an icon. I wonder if, in a decade, Gretchen Carlson might feel the same way Full Story

Chrissy Teigen could post about literally anything and it will inspire “10 Times Chrissy Teigen Won Twitter” or “3 Times Chrissy Teigen was Relatable AF on Instagram” stories. Her social media feed is a cottage industry. I’m not mad at it – I really enjoy her and I think when we one day look back at this era in pop culture, she will get her due as an early adopter of new media. Full Story

I’m still laughing about Jezebel’s Thirsty 30 from the other day.

At post time, the Academy has still not yet announced a replacement for Kevin Hart as the host of the Oscars. There are rumours that they may decide to go with no host for the Oscars.
