Dear Gossips,

Are you watching HBO’s The Outsider? In Canada it airs on Crave. I mean, some of you must be because the show has been steadily climbing in ratings, it’s legitimately a hit. And critically acclaimed. But as Anne Helen Petersen tweeted the other day:  Is THE OUTSIDER one of those shows that a whole lot of people are watching and (my circle of) Twitter just isn't really talking about? — Anne Helen Petersen (@annehelen) March 4, 2020  Read Full Intro

It’s not that Cynthia Erivo hasn’t been to the Oscars before so, technically, it’s not her first Oscars. But it is her first Oscars as an Oscar nominee. Which is another level of special – to be invited to the show because you’ve been singled out for your performance alongside four other actors, recognised as the five standouts of the year. Full Story

The Oscars are less than two weeks away. The suspense this year is in the Best Picture and Director races. All the acting categories are pretty much locked up: Renee Zellweger for Best Actress, Joaquin Phoenix for Best Actor, Laura Dern for Best Supporting Actress, and Brad Pitt for Best Supporting Actor. Full Story

About two months ago, Lena Waithe revealed that she and her longtime partner Alana Mayo had secretly married in August. It was on the press tour for Queen & Slim and she was talking about it everywhere. We asked her about it on The Social when she came to Toronto for promotion and we asked her about her wedding day and she talked about how “intimate” the day was for them, and special, and she described their relationship as “two bulls in a china shop” because they’re both Tauruses. Full Story

Many of the headlines coming out of the Oscar nominations this morning read that the Academy has just “barely averted” #OscarsSoWhite because of the inclusion of Cynthia Erivo and Parasite which is true… I guess… but it’s also a total simplification. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Leading up to Christmas, the predominant headline about Little Women was that they were having a hard time getting men to come to the screenings which may have been why the film was largely ignored by the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild.  Read Full Intro

I am a garden-variety internet addict who loves clothing and spectacle, so during or after an awards show, I obviously search obsessively to find out who designed the outfits I love (or despise). I used to be better at the ‘I can guess that designer just by looking at it’ game, but that was in the mid-2000s, when red carpets were reliably covered in Valentino, Dior, Prada, Chanel… maybe some Gucci and the occasional Louis Vuitton. Full Story

Kasi Lemmons’ first feature film since 2013’s Black Nativity is Harriet, a long overdue biopic of abolitionist, underground railroad conductor, and Union spy Harriet Tubman. It is amazing to me that it is twenty-goddamn-nineteen and we are only just now getting the first feature film about Harriet Tubman. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I know it’s only July but with festival season approaching and the lineups at each of these festivals coming into focus, we’re getting a sense of which films will be contending during award season. We also have a new early frontrunner in the Best Actress race: Cynthia Erivo.  Read Full Intro

Widows Slay

Steve McQueen hasn’t made a feature film since 12 Years a Slave, but he returns this fall with Widows, a film that could not look more different from 12 Years if it was shot on the moon. The first trailer has been released, and I immediately watched it three times in a row. Holy sh*t. I mean, HOLY SH*T. Full Story
