You know who wasn’t at the Oscar Nominees Luncheon yesterday? Frances McDormand. At least I don’t see her in any of the photos. And maybe this isn’t surprising. Remember at the SAGs when Frances won for Best Actress and got up on stage all like, hey, younger actresses need doorstops too Full Story

Octavia Spencer told a really great Show Your Work story at Sundance this week. Octavia and Jessica Chastain are good friends. Over a year ago, Jessica reached out to Octavia because she wanted them to do a movie together. During those discussions, they talked about pay equity and how men are paid so much more in Hollywood than women. Full Story

If you ask me to describe Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water, the short answer is: Amelie f*cks a fish monster.

You know those dramatic reenactments that feature in murder mystery shows where it’s like watching aliens pretend to be people because while everything looks normal enough, the interactions are just ever so slightly stiff and unnatural, like everyone is super aware of the camera on them? And do you remember the Chicken Soup for the Soul books, full of cutesy down-home anecdotes that seem to exist solely to make you cry? And you know the “For Dummies” books, which strip down every topic under the sun so that you can become a faux-expert in anything? Well, if you take all these ingredients—the not-quite-human drama of reenactments, the mawkish commodification of comfort, and the oversimplification of complex thought—and put them together in a movie, you get the new Chris Evans Full Story

Obviously she’s fantastic looking and has had other great looks this awards season, but this one, even though it wasn’t the most revealing or creative or whatever, was drop dead stunning-sexy. Full Story

Hidden Figures had a big opening weekend. There are no words to express how happy this makes me. The fact that this film made money has power. It means that, hopefully, we’ll get to see more stories about the nameless, faceless women of colour who made history. As Lainey mentioned in her intro yesterday Full Story
