Whatever Julia Roberts’ equivalent of the Beygency is, Duana is its president. Duana and her Best Friend’s Wedding Party (I just made this up since Duana says Julia stans are too old for a fan nickname) will want to come for me based on the headline of this post alone. OK, bring it. I can handle it. Full Story

The Oscars took my advice on one of my past pet peeves of the show. There weren’t endless montages featuring movies that the show didn’t recognize. It’s annoying when the Academy snubs great films for ones like Green Book but then will cycle through the good ones in a fleeting montage. Full Story

The MBJ Love Triangle

Shockingly, no one in this triangle with Michael Bae Jordan is me but only because it’s not a real love triangle. You know how people seem to think that Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are f-cking? Their chemistry seems as contrived as two theatre kids who learned what falling in love looked like from High School Musical (so, fake as hell but also really doing it for me). Full Story

Regina King won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar – her first— for her role in If Beale Street Could Talk. Somehow, Chris Evans is now in almost every story about Regina King’s win because the man sat beside her mom and… looked in her direction a few times? Because he did the bare minimum decent thing a dude can do by offering Regina his arm as she walked on stage?  . Full Story

There were a lot of “Queens” in attendance last night. Queen, the band. Queen Latifah. Olivia Coleman and Helen Mirren in spirit. The Queen of Wakanda, Angela Bassett. Billy Porter if we’re still saying “yasss Queen!” And then there was Regina King. Lainey schooled me that “Regina” means “Queen” in Latin, so she counts for that alone, but Regina King has earned her spot as Hollywood royalty aside from the origins of her name. Full Story

“This has been a long time coming.” Ruth E Carter started her first Oscars acceptance speech with these seven words, and to me, they sum up all of Black Panther’s historic wins. It’s been a long time coming for black women behind-the-scenes in Hollywood to get their recognition. Full Story

The Oscars did right by Spike Lee in the Best Adapted Screenplay category. As we’ve established, it did not “do the right thing” in its choice for Best Picture. The most outspoken critic of Green Book’s win was Spike himself, who many outlets are reporting “stormed out Full Story

It’s not like we didn’t know it was coming. Awards season has been preparing us for the inevitable: Green Book as the 2019 Best Picture winner. America, and its almost comically disrespectful Black History Month of bad news, has been preparing us for this too. Since it won the People’s Choice Award at TIFF, Green Book has had a shot at becoming one of those Best Picture winners that is looked back on with disdain and bewilderment, like Crash or Driving Miss Daisy. Full Story

We stan a shameless birthday queen! If you’re paying attention every year around the time of our birthdays, you know that Lainey and I are brazen in our birthday celebrations. We hijack whole weeks like we’re Offset. Diana Ross has taken over a whole ass two months for her birthday. Last night, the Grammys paid tribute to Diana for her 75th birthday by getting her grandson to introduce her and letting her tribute herself (I’m obsessed with both choices). Full Story
