Last year, while Jamie Lee Curtis prepared to bring Angela Bassett to tears at the Oscars and Lindsay Lohan hoped for a lucrative payday in 2023, it was announced they both would be open to a Freaky Friday sequel. Why? I have no idea, but since Disney knows how to get a bag, this sequel is happening. And just in case you’re thinking they may scrap this idea once they realize we’ve already seen this movie just know it is officially in production and coming to our screens very soon.
Where do Oscar winners keep their Oscars? Kate Winslet put hers in the bathroom, so guests can play pretend in the mirror without shame. I love that, except I hope people are washing their hands before they handle Oscar. Before. TooFab reports that a week after her Best Supporting Actress win, Jamie Lee Curtis has already found her Oscar a happy home; beside her Everything Everywhere All At Once character’s fictional butt plug-shaped award for “Auditor of the Month” and her recent Screen Actors Guild Award. Looking at all three awards lined up in a row, it’s clear that the SAG is the only one not ideal for sticking up your ass. Continue reading
Angela Bassett Gets Love From Fans After Her Reaction To Losing The Best Supporting Actress Oscar Goes Viral
Everything Everywhere All At Once seriously slapped down its competition last night (and not in a Will Smith kind of way) by cleaning up at the Oscars. It added to its awards show haul with Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director (for The Daniels, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert), Best Original Screenplay (The Daniels), Best Actress (Michelle Yeoh), Best Supporting Actor (Ke Huy Quan), Best Film Editing, and Best Supporting Actress (Jamie Lee Curtis), for a grand total of seven wins. But while some wins for EEAAO were a shoo-in (Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor), others didn’t seem as much of a lock. Going into last night’s Oscars, it seemed that the Best Supporting Actress win was going to go to either Angela Bassett (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever), Jamie Lee Curtis (EEAAO), or Kerry Condon (The Banshees of Inisherin). Jamie Lee, of course, got the Oscar. And Angela Basset’s reaction to losing out on another Oscar got attention with some feeling for her, while others called her “rude.” And yes, those “others” should remember their diss tweets for when they get to the Gates of Heaven and are locked out due to daring to drag THEE Angela Bassett.
Open Post: Hosted By Jamie Lee Curtis Skipping The Oscar Nominee Dinner Because “Mommy Goes to Bed Early”
Jamie Lee Curtis doesn’t give a fuck. See: the time she shit on every movie that wasn’t Everything Everywhere All At Once, her helpful reminder that Lea Michele doesn’t have a Tony, her 2019 beef with The Figi Water Girl, and the seven years she spent shilling yogurt that makes you shit. Last night, the Hollywood Reporter (via Insider) interviewed Jamie at the Independent Spirit Awards, and the actress dropped some piping hot Oscar tea: there’s a very exclusive nominee dinner this Thursday, it starts at 7:30 PM, and she’s not going. Why? Cuz “mommy goes to bed early.” And yes, JLC is mommy.
The SAG Awards happened last night, and the only way to watch it was to watch it on Netflix’s YouTube Channel. Listen, it could’ve been worse. They could’ve shown it exclusively on TikTok and made the winners bust out TikTok dances or do TikTok challenges while accepting their trophy. Or Netflix could’ve turned the SAG Awards into a Squid Games-style challenge where nominees have to battle it out to the death for the trophy (that’s next year). But those who watched this year’s SAG Awards on Netflix’s YouTube Channel watched the cast of Everything Everywhere All at Once get their cardio in by picking up award after award. And one of EEAAO‘s stars, the legendary James Hong, showed us that at 94 years old, he’s still got IT by easily becoming the sparkling star of the night!
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.
