Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt recently decided they will make the the details of their custody drama private. So far, they’ve kept their promise, which means it’s back to our regularly scheduled program of Angelina Jolie, Modern Saint.
Aziz Ansari hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend and his monologue was just him doing stand-up. And since his episode happened the day after the inauguration, his jokes were mostly about Trump. Aziz probably expected his monologue would trigger a Twitter tantrump. Instead, the person who slapped at him the next morning was Chris Brown. Sorry, I really should have specified that it was a verbal slapping. It is Chris Brown we’re talking about, after all.
Keke Palmer, star of Scream Queens and hoochie wear legend in the making, is currently very pissed off at Trey Songz. Keke has accused Trey Songz of getting her drunk and using “sexual intimidation” to get her to appear in a music video. Because Keke is a famous person under the age of 30, she spilled the details of their drama on Instagram.
Aaron Rodgers is currently in the middle of some very messy family drama. We know this because both Aaron’s blabbermouth daddy Ed Rogers and his fame-chasing brother Jordan Rodgers keep talking about it. Aaron hasn’t been around his family in about two years, and it reportedly has something to do with his girlfriend Olivia Munn. The Rodgers’ family doesn’t like Olivia and they allegedly think she’s turned him into Mr. Hollywood. Aaron isn’t saying shit about his family’s issues, because he doesn’t think it’s “appropriate” to air their laundry out in public. Olivia Munn, on the other hand, has found a way to sort-of give her feelings on the matter.
On Sunday night, the Green Bay Packers – Aaron’s team – lost a conference championship game to the Atlanta Falcons, which means Aaron won’t be going to the Super Bowl. Olivia congratulated her man’s team on a season well done. And she just so happened to sneak in a little dig at Aaron’s family while she was at it. Good work on the multi-tasking, Olivia!
I think it’s safe to say that Olivia just officially got herself uninvited from the next 10 Rodgers family Thanksgiving dinners.
Because I have a deep appreciation for shit-stirring shade, I applaud Olivia’s ability to do Papa Ed and Lil’ Jordan like that. But I also think she could have taken it way farther. I’m sure she wanted to keep it subtle, but why bother? Go big or go home! Something like “THANK YOU all for using your mouths to cheer and not to blab to the press like some people. Packers fans are truly the BEST FAMILY Aaron could ask for.”
Tomorrow we find out if all the hard work and hand jobs Ryan Reynolds has been giving have paid off when the Oscar nominations are announced. But today we find out whose lazy hand job of a performance was rewarded with a 2017 Razzie nomination
There was a nominations sweep at this year’s Razzies. Zoolander 2 got 9 nominations, followed closely behind by Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice with 8. Sorry, 1997’s Batman and Robin, it looks like you’re still the Batman movie with the most Razzie nominations. But don’t worry, there’s a chance that Batman movie written and directed by Ben Affleck could happen.
Jared Leto’s award dreams came true in the most Twilight Zone-y of ways. He’s not going to get the Oscar nomination he was no doubt sure he was going to get, but he did get a Worst Supporting Actor Razzie for Suicide Squad. And Julia Roberts’ performance as Lady Wearing a Bad Wig in Mother’s Day earned her a Worst Actress nomination. That wig didn’t get a Worst Supporting Actor nomination, because of course it didn’t; that wig worked its ass off and supported her like a load-bearing beam.
And Ben Affleck received his 10th Razzie nomination today. The big one-zero! He should go out and celebrate tonight for reaching a career milestone. Maybe his BFF Tom Brady will treat Ben to a steamed green bean and unseasoned fish dinner at his house.
The list of nominees is after the cut.
In August, The Hollywood Reporter said that MGM is doing a gender-flip remake of 1988’s Dirty Rotten Scoundrels starring Rebel Wilson. And now The Hollywood Reporter says that Anne Hathaway is joining Rebel.
The original starred Steve Martin and Michael Caine as two con men trying to swindle an American heiress out of $500,000. Nasty Women, which is what this remake is called, will star Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. Anne and Rebel will play two women “from different walks of life” who team up to con a tech prodigy out of his money. Rebel Wilson is also a producer on it.
The first Dirty Rotten Scoundrels had a real slobs vs. snobs dynamic, so I’m taking that “different walks of life” thing as a sign that Nasty Women will be similar. Ann-with-an-E was born to play the uptight snob role, which means Rebel will probably play the snob. Although I really wish they’d switch it and make Rebel the snob and Anne the slob. I want to see Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway pretend to use a fancy dining room chair like a toilet.
I’m not a huge Dirty Rotten Scoundrels fan, but I’m still a little hesitant about this remake. We already have the perfect movie about two con women with a talent for grifting. It’s called Heartbreakers. There’s no way you can make a better movie than Heartbreakers, so why bother? Oh no, that totally sounded like I was challenging Hollywood to remake Heartbreakers. I take it back! Nasty Women – great, sure, whatever, just please leave Heartbreakers alone.
