Now we know why Disney decided to do an all-CGI remake (although, it’s supposed to be GAME CHANGING!) of their cartoon movie The Lion King. It isn’t just because those greedy overlords at Disney knew that they could throw their logo on any summertime movie and it’ll allow them to say, “Sure, order four!”, with ease when Mickey Mouse calls asking if he can order another crate of vintage Dom Perignon while partying with his side-hos and Leonardo DiCaprio on his yacht in Italy somewhere. They knew that if they got Beyonce to graciously possess the body of a CGI Nala with her ethereal holiness, they might also get her to make an entire Lion King album, and then they’d make even more money.
Well, Mickey Mouse can go ahead and make it rain $1,000 cashiers checks instead of $100 bills on his yacht girls this summer, because Beyonce (and her ghost curators) has curated an entire album inspired by The Lion King.
Last night’s Golden Globes turned out to be nothing more than a graveyard of all the drama that never was. Hosts Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg were over-the-top nice (blurg), nobody wanted to drag Bryan Singer in front of millions (boo), and the one bit of real red carpet drama, Chrissy Metz allegedly calling Alison Brie a bitch, turned out to be nothing more than a silly misunderstanding (hiss). According to TMZ, Chrissy’s not the soapy drama queen we hoped she was. During a Golden Globes pre-show interview on Facebook, Chrissy could be heard saying what many thought was “she’s such a bitch” under her breath on a hot mic after being alerted to Alison’s arrival on the red carpet. But TMZ says Chrissy actually said “babe” not “bitch”. What’s more, she said she considers Alison a friend and that anybody who knows her, knows she would never say something like that.
Believe it or not, but the most random beef I experienced tonight wasn’t the shit I got from Taco Bell for the Golden Globes. Yes, you can GONG me for that “joke,” but first use your hands to slow clap for Chrissy Metz for actually bringing some riveting drama to the 2019 Golden Globes, which are in need of some riveting drama.
It’s a bit redundant to say so, because aren’t all award shows just an excuse for fashion houses to clean out their local Fabric Barn and send a famous person down the carpet in more material than a 1980s canopy bed set? But the Emmys did see a lot of by-the-yardage last night, like on Jessica Biel, who said yes to a white Ralph & Russo dress. If you think Jessica and Justin Timberlake look like they stopped by the Emmys on their way to appearing on the top of a wedding cake, you’re not the only one.
The Billboard Music Awards were last night and if the red carpet is any indication, it lived up to it’s name because most stars looked as bored as can be. With very few exceptions, most of the night’s looks were uninspired and devoid of whimsy. Nick Jonas (above) looks like he just showed up for his shift at Applebees and still needs to go get his flair from his locker and take a quick shot at the bar before getting started. He’ll be with you in a minute, ok?
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.
