Night Crumbs

On the day that voting for the Academy Awards closed, Michelle Yeoh shared a Vogue article about the Oscars race on her Instagram. That’s not a big deal, but part of the article got into the systematic racism at the Oscars and how Michelle’s biggest Best Actress competition Cate Blanchett already has two Oscars. The post has since been deleted, possibly because Michelle may have broken an Academy rule by mentioning Cate in a post. You know, this year’s Best Actress Oscar race is filled with drama from the Andrea Riseborough campaign escandalo to Michelle Williams being accused of category fraud to this. Meanwhile, some people haven’t really been following all the Best Actress drama because their brains are still stuck on the crazy fact that Ana de Armas was nominated for Blonde! – The Daily Beast

It’s not exactly fresh news that Julia Roberts was supposed to star in Shakespeare in Love in the early-90s and that she was extremely hard up for Daniel Day-Lewis to be her co-star (he wasn’t available). But now SIL producer Edward Zwick has spilled more details in an essay, writing that the casting of Julia Roberts proved to be a shit show that cost the studio $6 million. Julia did chemistry tests with several actors (Ralph Fiennes, Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, Sean Bean, and Jeremy Northam), but she wasn’t into any of them. And on the day she tested with Paul McGann, Edward said it became clear that Julia hardly worked on her British accent. Julia ended up quitting the movie the next morning, and as we know, Goopy Paltrow eventually played the role and won an Oscar for it. Whatever! Julia Roberts later showed those picky hos that she’s a master at accents by doing an impeccable Irish accent in Mary Reilly (read: the accent was such shit that I’m surprised Ireland didn’t declare war on us for it) – Variety

The year is 2023, and Tiger Woods‘ personal life is still a mess. His ex-girlfriend, Erica Carmen, has gone to court to nullify the NDA he made her sign, citing a law that protects victims of sexual harassment and abuse. And Erica’s also suing him for $30 million for allegedly breaking an agreement they had by locking her out of his house. Somewhere, Elin Nordegren is lounging on a cashmere chaise stuffed with $100 bills while breathing another sigh of relief that she’s done with Tiger’s bullshit – USA Today 

Schmigadoon! is throwing jazz hands and Fosse-shimmying into season two, which parodies the musicals of the 60s and 70s and is taking us to Schmicago! Since it looks like they’re going through the decades, I can’t wait for season three (Schmantom of the Schmopera!), season four (Schment!), and season five (Schmamilton!)  – Pajiba

Lucasfilm has dropped planned Star Wars movies from Patty Jenkins and Kevin Feirge, but they are moving forward on a Star Wars movie that is being written by Taika Waititi and may star him too. Oh shit, I bet Taika’s going to put his wife Rita Ora in his Star Wars movie too. May the WHO? be with you – Lainey Gossip
