I wanted to be annoyed.  Melissa McCarthy was the long-shot nominee for a fantastic performance in Can You Ever Forgive Me, and even though I knew, and you knew, and she knew, that it was never going to happen, I wanted more people to treat it like it was a possibility.  She was wearing a really incredible… ‘ensemble’ is the only word, because it wasn’t a dress, and calling it a jumpsuit neglects the incredible cape that fit perfectly over her shoulders and looked rich. Full Story

Melissa McCarthy’s Ironic Oscar Nom

Maybe the title above isn’t fair. Melissa McCarthy got an Oscar Best Actress nomination for playing Lee Israel, an irascible crank in her 50s who pulled off an incredible scam, and Can You Ever Forgive Me is completely worth your time. The nomination is completely deserved and also kind of surprising, since the movie and its buzz faded in the last few weeks, and because McCarthy has been a relatively quiet contender in the Best Actress categories at the Globes/Critics/SAGs – although that may change now?  The irony, though, comes because McCarthy plays not just an unlikeable woman, but a woman who’s trying – and failing – to get acknowledgement for her work, and it’s consistently not working. Full Story

Melissa McCarthy at her best in Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Melissa McCarthy is best known as a comedienne, but really she’s a good actress with a talent for playing cranks and borderline unpleasant, blunt characters. She excels when she’s playing someone who says and does as she pleases, so Can You Ever Forgive Me? is right up her alley. Marielle Heller’s second feature adapts Lee Israel’s memoir (from a script by Nicole Holofcener and Jeff Whitty), recounting her days as a literary forger. Full Story

Happytime Murders is aggressively mediocre

You may have heard that The Happytime Murders, the R-rated puppet noir starring Melissa McCarthy, is getting hammered with bad reviews. It’s currently standing at 27% on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s the worst movie of the year or it’s the worst movie ever, depending on who you ask. Full Story

Tiffany Haddish and some other people

Tiffany Haddish, as Duana noted after the Oscars, is a Star. She has It. When Tiffany Haddish is around, all you want to be looking at or listening to is Tiffany Haddish. And she is beginning to have projects built around her, as Stars do, including one called The Kitchen. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

How many times since Saturday night have you watched Melissa McCarthy in the Sean Spicer sketch? I watched it twice that night, another 3 times the next day, and at least once a day this week. There’s something new that’s funny to me with every viewing.  Read Full Intro

Melissa McCarthy stole SNL

Kristen Stewart did a solid job hosting SNL, but Melissa McCarthy stole the show—arguably the whole season—with her impression of Press Secretary Sean Spicer. There had been no word that McCarthy was coming on, so it was a total surprise, which quickly gave way to a vengeful kind of delight when it became immediately clear that McCarthy’s impression isn’t just a stunt. Full Story

Mood today. nope — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 20, 2017 It’s a prosperous time for Wendi Deng. Look at the way they are posing -- have you ever seen Ivanka this casual and informal with anyone? That’s how you know they are tight, they don’t need to pose with their hands on their hips. Full Story
