Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been making headlines all week, like every week.

You wouldn’t think the NME Awards would be an awards show where Taylor Swift would show up but since she spends so much time in London now, she made a surprise appearance last night to receive the Best Solo Act award and Joe Alwyn was with her.  The NME Awards are not the Oscars. It’s pretty much the antithesis of the Oscars as far as award shows go. Full Story

Jessica Simpson’s book, Open Book, came out yesterday – and as promised, she has been OPEN. This is what you want out of a celebrity memoir: not just the tea but also the context; it has to be more than X and Y was an asshole, it’s better when you fill in the emotion behind it, when you colour in the history between the margins of the gossip stories we’re already familiar with. Full Story

Also her outfit is better than her mother’s. Full Story

No surprise, 1917 won Best Picture at the BAFTAs last night. This was expected and it now goes into the Oscars, with voting ending tomorrow, the overwhelming favourite after taking the PGA, the DGA, and the BAFTAs.
