The Oscars Will Cut 8 Awards From The Live Telecast To Try To Boost Ratings

February 23, 2022 / Posted by:

Last year, at the 2021 Academy Awards, a history-making moment happened in the Makeup and Hairstyling category, when for the first time ever two Black women won in that category (for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom). But if there was to be another significant win in that category this year, we’ll only hear about it after the fact. Because the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has decided that the audience at home doesn’t need to see the winners of a whole eight categories, Makeup and Hairstyling being one of them, and they’re shuffling those eight award categories out of the broadcast lineup.

“The Activist” Is No Longer A Reality Competition Show, But A Documentary Special

September 16, 2021 / Posted by:

CBS finally realized that their idea for a Shark Tank-style competition show for humanitarians was a shitty one. I’m shocked. If only there was a charity out there that could help me with the rehabilitation needed to recover from this news. But I’ll have to wait to see if any such charity is mentioned in the upcoming documentary The Activist: This Was A Terrible Idea For A Reality Show.

“Cops” Is Back After Being Canceled Last Year

September 13, 2021 / Posted by:

Last June, in the wake of George Floyd’s murder and the Black Lives Matter protests, the Paramount Network canceled Cops after 32 seasons. Phew, right? Sigh, wrong. The streaming service Fox Nation (a spin-off from Fox News, but of course) just announced that they’re dragging Cops back from hell; they’ve picked it up for a 33rd season, and it will premiere on October 1. So let me get this straight: we permanently lost canceled-too-soon classics like GLOW, Happy Endings, and Santa Clarita Diet (OK, “classic” is a strong word for that last one, but it was… fine), but they bring back Cops? COPS?!?!

California Theme Parks, Including Disneyland, Are Allowed To Reopen On April Fools’ Day (But With Restrictions) 

March 6, 2021 / Posted by:

As Coronavirus puts on its cowboy hat and chaps and gets ready to do the two-step up into mouth and nose holes (to the tune of Achy Breaky Lungs) when Texas completely reopens on March 10, California has announced that its easing up on its COVID-19 restrictions. The Los Angeles Times says that thanks to CA Governor Gavin Newsom’s newly updated four-tier “Blueprint For A Safter Economy” safety plan, stadiums, outdoor ball-playing places, and theme parks can reopen on April 1 as long as the county they’re in is in the red tier for coronavirus cases. But they’ll only be able to operate at a limited capacity and everyone has to wear a mask. You still won’t see me at Disneyland anytime soon, but with that being said, I can’t wait to see the cell phone videos of Goofy and Daisy Duck holding back Donald Duck as he tries to fight a stupid trick who refuses to wear a mask.

Cardi B Is Sorry For Hosting A 37-Person Thanksgiving Party In The Middle Of A Pandemic

November 30, 2020 / Posted by:

Thanksgiving looked a little different this year, because, for the first time in ages, the fighting wasn’t over politics or who had to sit on the card table chair with the wonky leg (at least not more than usual). Mostly the biggest fight was whether you would be having a safe CDC-approved celebration at home, or whether you were going to gather at Aunt Janet’s house three states away and swap airborne germs in the dining room with your relatives. That second option might end up putting a whole lot of grandpas and grandmas on ventilators so naturally there’s been some side-eyeing of people who threw huge family gatherings on turkey day. Like Cardi B, who hosted more than three dozen people at her place, despite being told by health professionals to not do that. Well, guess what, Cardi is now sorry for doing that.

Amanda Bynes Is Possibly Pregnant With Her First Child (UPDATE)

March 18, 2020 / Posted by:

About a month ago, we all found out that 33-year-old Amanda Bynes got engaged to a dude in his 20s named Paul Michael, a dude she met in AA and has only known for a few months. We then heard that Amanda’s mom wasn’t exactly buying mason jars and raffia bows on Amazon (since nearly every damn wedding I’ve been to in the past 5 years has those as their centerpieces) and vowed to not sign off on the marriage, which is something she’d have to do for it to happen because Amanda is still under a conservatorship. And then we heard that during a court hearing, a judge ordered Amanda into a psychiatric facility after meeting with her family, and Amanda at first agreed to go but never checked in, and Paul reportedly called off the engagement when he heard about the current state of her mental health. But THEN, Paul Michael himself ran his ass of to Page Six to tell them that they never broke up, she’s in a residential treatment center (but can come and go as she pleases), and that a hacker got into their Instagram accounts and deleted all the pictures of them together. So yeah…

So while I may have gotten the doctor card a couple of times while playing the Game of Life, I am not a psychologist, but to me, bringing a baby into this situation doesn’t seem like the best idea. But last night, both Amanda and Paul posted an ultrasound picture of a fetus and “sources” claim she indeed has a case of the babies. Well, I guess 2020 just had to throw another Molotov cocktail on the bonfire of WTF that is itself.
