Joaquin Phoenix and Renee Zellweger have had the dubious distinctions, this awards season, of being the de facto winners in their categories almost as soon as the season started. Like, everyone sort of agrees on the Golden Globes being a pace setter, but other shows having the ability to move the needle – these two have been a sure thing from jump. Full Story

Last year, Olivia Colman gave one of the best acceptance speeches of the night when she won the Best Actress Oscar for her performance in The Favourite. She is also an excellent presenter. Last night she got up there and talked about her sex life which was adorable and delightful because, of course, it’s Olivia Colman and you think she’s all proper and sh-t when, well, that’s only on the surface which you’d know if you’ve seen The Favourite with its liberal use of the word “cunt” and also her appearances in Fleabag. Full Story

Joaquin Phoenix is the undisputed Best Actor of the 2019/20 award season, cleaning up everywhere he goes, and the BAFTAs were no different. Since he is the undisputed champ, he actually prepared an acceptance speech in advance of his latest win. His Golden Globes speech Full Story

The Oscar nominations were announced this morning, and somehow, in a year with a wealth of solid options that could provide a controversy-free Oscar month, the Academy still managed to irk and irritate. Lainey and Duana will have more on specific snubs and #OscarsSoMale on the next episode of Show Your Work, but for now let's talk about Joker and its ELEVEN nominations. Full Story

My biggest interview last night was Eddie Murphy. I don’t think we really believed we would get him going into it. This is Eddie Murphy, he’s not the most accessible of celebrities and he’s never the celebrity who gives every outlet on the press line a few minutes. That said, Eddie is campaigning for Dolemite Is My Name and if you haven’t seen this on Netflix… Let’s sidebar quickly about Dolemite because it’s GREAT. Full Story

Joker is an inevitable hit

It’s official, Joker is a hit, setting a new October opening weekend record with a $96 million opening weekend. This is more than Justice League ($93.8 million). Joker is a hit, Justice League is a flop, and the difference lies mostly in their budgets and a little bit in their ratings. R-rated movies are never expected to perform as well as more audience-friendly PG-13 movies, though we have seen a number of R-rated blockbusters recently (the Deadpool and It franchises). Full Story

Dear Gossips,

You know what award season is good for? Contrasts. People are campaigning, everyone has their own campaign strategy. So from October to the Oscars, we get to see these plans play out, side by side, in real time – an off-screen performance that supports the onscreen performance.  Read Full Intro

Joaquin Phoenix covers Vanity Fair

That title in and of itself is newsworthy considering who we’re talking about: Joaquin Phoenix, one of the most press-averse actors in the business, willingly participating in an interview with Vanity Fair that covers his work life, his love life, his family life, including mentions of his late brother, River. Full Story

Joker is not dangerous, daring, or provocative

If ever there was a movie that does not live up to its hype, it is Todd Phillips’ much debated Joker. A stripped down, deconstructed comic book movie, Joker is supposedly the most inflammatory, dangerous, provocative film of the year—of the era!—a movie that is maybe causing a moral panic and fanning the flames of the culture war. Full Story
