Jordan Peele has been on a serious roll since his directorial debut Get Out took off like Jesse Owens at the starting block. Not too long ago he announced his next feature film will be another sociopolitical horror film called Us starring Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke and, most horrifying of all, active Scientologist Elisabeth Moss. It was also announced that his production company Monkeypaw would be producing a reboot of the mind-fucking classic The Twilight Zone. Now Jordan’s just announced that he’s also going to be stepping into Rod Serling’s loafers and hosting it as well!
Jordan Peele’s creating a monster! Well, a juggernaut at least, that will probably smash box office records. Jordan’s not fucking around with his much anticipated follow up to Get Out. Jordan released some art work and a title for his next movie and, according to Variety, he’s in talks with two Black Panther faves, Lupita Nyong’o and thick legend Winston Duke to star. And if she can get out of her cult obligations, Elisabeth Moss as well.
Note that I left out the word “mess,” as there’s no question that the messiest part of the red carpet was most likely the three square feet of space occupied by Ryan Seacrest.
If there was an award for red carpet fashion that makes you question a stylist’s sanity, Nicole Kidman would be that category’s Meryl Streep. Nicole arrived in an Armani Prive gown that does double duty. From the waist-up she’s very mascot of a sexy frozen fish company, and from the waist down I’m getting a reminder to please separate my plastic recyclables from my paper.
He looks like if Damien from The Omen got a job at Jiffy Lube. That’s current Hollywood slobber object Timothee Chalamat holding his statue for Best Male Lead for his part as a teenage twink in love with a much older dude in Call Me By Your Name. The Independent Spirit Awards were held yesterday. Variety reports that Jordan Peele’s “white people really ARE evil!” horror/comedy/satire Get Out won for Best Feature and Best Director, and honestly, why is Timothee dressed like a gas station attendant? Surely choosing an outfit for these things isn’t that much of a stressor that you say “eff it” and go with coveralls?
There was a lot of messy fashion at the SAG Awards last night (prepare yourself accordingly after that jump below!). But obviously any effort that was put in was immediately cancelled out the second Kate Hudson returned to the scene of last year’s fashion crime and fully outdid herself in a fluffy Valentino vision of countrified love. I say love because, duh, the hearts a’plenty, but also because I love this dress. What’s not to love? Black velvet (check), pink beauty pageant chiffon (check), a high-lace neckline with corresponding bib of ruffles (checking furiously). The only thing missing is a pink parasol. Kate probably left it in the limo for fear of being mistaken for Miley Cyrus in a knock-off production of My Fair Lady called Decent Lookin’ Gal.
Here’s who else showed up and sizzled eyeballs with style.
Jordan Peele wrote and directed the superlative horror flick Get Out. SPOILER ALERT- it was a big hit, mostly because it was scary yet intelligent with many layers about how racism is the worst and so are rich and evil mad scientists disguised as awkward liberals. In the movie, the lead Daniel Kaluuya is dating Marnie from Girls and sits down with her hypnotherapist mom, a particularly sinister Catherine Keener, for a session to stop smoking. She takes him to what she refers to as “The Sunken Place” in his head, and eventually everything turns scary and evil. In a related story, D.A.R.E. failure Tiger Woods played golf with Time magazine’s “Most Incorrect Person Of The Year“ – President Donald Trump. This caused Peele to point out that “The Sunken Place” is real and also goes by the name “Trump National Golf Club.” Continue reading
