Lupita Nyong'o and Janelle Monáe set Twitter ablaze following the Met Gala and it was for more than their fire outfits. People, and possibly me, are convinced there could be a romance brewing between them, especially since there are rumours that Janelle and her frequent professional and personal partner, Tessa Thompson, have broken up. Full Story

In the past couple of years stylists have finally been getting their due, and some, like Law Roach, are approaching pop culture figure status on their own. It’s absolutely time for people to acknowledge the work of stylists and for them to be stars in their own right, kind of like how showrunners suddenly became public figures about a dozen years ago. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Jordan Peele’s Us exceeded box office projections this weekend, opening with $70.3 million and setting several records, proving that Get Out wasn’t a fluke (not that anyone thought it would be) and establishing him as an event filmmaker, the kind of storyteller who can deliver a commercial hit and make you think at the same time.  Read Full Intro

Jordan Peele keeps it simple with Us

After a stunning debut like Get Out, anything less than equal success is bound to seem like a disappointment. Such is the case for Jordan Peele’s sophomore feature film, Us. Is it bad? Emphatically NO. But it’s not as deep or thematically grounded as Get Out, which is bound to feel like a disappointment to anyone looking for similar themes. Full Story

I am probably going to see Jordan Peele’s Us this weekend. Not happy about this. Us is getting strong reviews. Get Out was not a fluke. So it’s not like I’m going to walk out of there all like, what a sh-t movie. I will probably walk out with sh-t in my pants though because scary movies are not my thing. Full Story

I really think there needs to be a three-month moratorium on Oscar talk following the Academy Awards, but life is inherently unfair so here we are, just a few weeks after the Oscars, already talking about next year’s Oscars. The subject? Jordan Peele’s Us. Just the trailer Full Story

When Jordan Peele introduced Lupita Nyong’o at the world premiere of Us in Austin at SXSW on Friday night, she leapt from her seat and started punching the air to cheer for her film and hype up the crowd. She was PUMPED because she knew what we were about to see: the most talked about movie of the festival. Full Story

Now that Rami Malek has an Oscar, what will his career look like? He still has Mr. Robot, but on the movie side, it looks like his first post-Oscar role will be as the villain in Bond 25. In a double-report, Deadline stated that Malek and Lupita Nyong’o were both being pursued—it turns out Lupita will not be a Bond girl, but Malek will indeed be a Bond villain. Full Story

All award season, no one has really expected Black Panther to win. Just being nominated IS the win, when the trophy club is so stacked against superhero movies. But the SAGs broke rank and actually gave Black Panther a trophy, awarding the cast Best Ensemble, the equivalent of Best Picture. This is a big deal! The SAG Awards are not a great prognosticator for the Oscars—their Best Ensemble lines up with Best Picture slightly less than 50% of the time—but the actors are the biggest voting branch of the Academy. Full Story

The cast of Black Panther almost cost me a laptop, my friendship with Lainey Lui, and probably my job. I was ready to tear apart her entire basement. I was ready to throw whatever I could at the TV screen. As soon as I saw Danai Gurira, Michael Bae Jordan Full Story
