Darren Aronofsky was honoured last night at BAM’s 2018 Gala. Jennifer Lawrence presented and they even posed together for a photo and allowed themselves to be photographed while they were talking, presumably catching up. I don’t think anyone is thinking here that there’s been a reconciliation. Full Story

Mark the date down. Today is an anomaly in the entertainment business – or maybe in business overall.  Today is the day that, when confronted with egregious behaviour on the part of one of its employees, Roseanne Barr, ABC did exactly the right thing. Mere hours after Roseanne tweeted something so repugnant that even she knew and deleted it shortly after, without having to be chided or waffling or prevaricating for two weeks before finally whimpering to the right decision, ABC cancelled her show Full Story

Donald Glover is already producing one hit show for FX, Atlanta, and last year he and his brother, Stephen Glover, signed on to expand their television empire by producing an animated Deadpool series for FX’s comedy wing, FXX. It was to be something like Archer but for Marvel, and went straight to series with a ten-episode order. Full Story

A new trailer for Deadpool 2—the official title, though I kinda wish they had stuck with “Untitled Deadpool Sequel”—has been released, and goddamn does the marketing for this movie remain on point. This trailer is GREAT, except for the increased screen time for TJ Miller, and actually gives a sense of the plot. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Last year’s Oscar envelope f-ckup – do you care about it anymore? It was amazing the night of. But then, after all that’s happened this year, I don’t know that I still care all that much about what went down and who messed up and why.  Read Full Intro

Despite a couple good-looking trailers, there have been warning signs that things are not all well with the upcoming Natalie Portman-fronted sci-fi flick Annihilation. The film is due to be released on February 23 in North America and China, but its studio, Paramount, has sold all other international distribution rights to Netflix, which will premiere the film abroad just seventeen days after its North American release. Full Story

Here are some photos of This Hot Bitch, Sharon Stone, at the airport. I would like to draw attention to her outfit, because I was just arguing with someone about “appropriate” travel-wear, and I feel like Stone is modeling the perfect travel outfit. Comfy pants, comfy sweater, but doing it in all black makes it look cosmopolitan and chic. Full Story

No, the monologue rap wasn’t great. So I get it if, with a start like that, you weren’t all that into Olivia Munn last night hosting the Critics’ Choice Awards. But, apart from that rap, I actually quite enjoyed her. She was much stronger during the in-between awards bits, especially when she was up there with Niecy Nash “toasting the good guys”. Full Story
