In an attempt of trying not to please anyone other than herself, Selena Gomez is taking on the task of telling folks who have a problem with her body where they can go (straight to Hell, apparently). After people began attacking her weight following her appearance on the red carpet at the Golden Globes last week, Selena released a video explaining where her self-professed weight gain came from, and it’s something that WEL ALL can relate to.
If you still haven’t seen White Lotus season two, then stay away from all Jennifer Coolidge posts on the internet today, including this one, because you will be spoiled. Jennifer Coolidge starred in the series as Tanya McQuoid, and last night, she picked up a Golden Globe for her performance in the show’s second season. And Jennifer Coolidge’s acceptance speech was pure Jennifer Coolidge. Now, the Internet wants her to host the next award show, but then that’ll mean the ceremony would need to be extended by at least 4 hours since she’s got a lot to say!
The now-tainted Golden Globes returned to NBC last night as foretold, and the 2023 Golden Globes did all they could to make us forget that just a few years ago the Hollywood Foreign Press Association voters were accepting trips to Paris seemingly in exchange for nominations. Well, now they’re trying the whole thing again, and I guess they’re reputable now? Well, they started off strong in terms of winning me over since they gave 60-year-old Michelle Yeoh the Best Actress for a Musical or Comedy last night, and any time goddess Michelle gets her flowers, I’m on board. However, they lost me again when they tried to play her off. Luckily, she’s a martial artist and threatened to whoop their asses, and the band shut that nonsense down and let her finish.
Brendan Fraser Says He Will Not Attend The Golden Globes If He’s Nominated For “The Whale” Because Of The Former HFPA Member Who Groped Him
In 2018, Brendan Fraser went public with his #MeToo story. He shared that, back in 2003, he was groped at a party by Philip Berk, the former president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. In 2021, Philip was expelled from HFPA after emailing an article to his fellow members that described Black Lives Matter as a “racist hate movement.” Creepy and racist? What a guy! Fast forward to now. Brendan is getting awards buzz for his performance in The Whale. In an interview with GQ for their Man of the Year cover story (he’s their Comeback of the Year), 53-year-old Brendan says that if he ends up getting nominated for a Golden Globe, he won’t go to the ceremony. He explains he has “more history” with HFPA than he has respect for HFPA, adding, “My mother didn’t raise a hypocrite.”
There were no Golden Globes on NBC this year. Awards were given out in a scaled down ceremony at the Beverly Hilton, but they weren’t aired. Every celebrity in the world, save Jamie Lee Curtis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, declined the invitation to go. And those two only showed up in separate pre-taped segments, neither of which had anything to do with True Lies! You see, everyone hates the Hollywood Foreign Press. Major PR firms told their clients to ignore HFPA until they actually follow through on their promises to improve diversity, inclusivity, and not accept bribes and gifts (see: Emily in Paris getting two nominations after giving voters a glamorous trip to France). A few months ago, we learned that the awards show lost their PR firm. All signs pointed to the death of the Golden Globes: 1944-2022. Pia Zadora had already prepared a beautiful eulogy. But now Deadline is reporting that the Globes may actually be resurrected on NBC next year. Sorry, Pia! Back to your cave you go.
Somewhere the ghost of the CableACE Awards is opening the rusty gate of the Deceased Entertainment Awards Shows Cemetery, as the Blockbuster Entertainment Awards curls a bony finger in the direction of the Golden Globe Awards, moaning “Rooooom for one more“. Because everything that keeps happening to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association feels like a clue that death is imminent for the Golden Globe Awards, once Tinseltown’s favorite night to pat themselves on the back while also getting drunk live on TV, and is now currently the number one place a showbiz type doesn’t want to be seen. Even NBC, the network that has broadcast the show forever, decided to sit this one out this year. Now we’re learning that even the Golden Globes’ own PR firm doesn’t want anything to do with them.
