Many of us grew up on Jennifer Coolidge, whether we were “bending and snapping” with Paulette in Legally Blonde or cringing at Jeanine Stifler’s scandalous dalliances with a much younger Paul Finch in American Pie. But even though Stifler’s Mom was probably Jennifer’s most notable character back then, Jennifer herself recently opened up about her decision to not be anyone’s mom–she thinks she’s probably too immature.
Open Post: Hosted By Jennifer Coolidge Shouting Out The Striking Writers At The MTV Movie & TV Awards
Even though Drew Barrymore dropped out of hosting last night’s MTV Movie & TV Awards in solidarity with the WGA writers’ strike, the show went on (in a pre-recorded virtual ceremony)! And what it lacked in host, it more than made up for in remote acceptance speeches from Jennifer Coolidge. She picked up two golden popcorn awards: the Comedic Genius Award and Most Frightened Performance (such an important honor) for The White Lotus. At the end of her first acceptance speech, Jennifer voiced her support for the striking writers and proved that her kooky bimbo persona is just an act by quoting Shakespeare.
Two carpets, both alike in dignity
(In fair Hollywood, where we lay our scene),
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil shoes make civil rugs unclean.
It’s crazy how those words by William Shakespeare are still as true today as they were in 1996 when we finally understood them thanks to Baz Luhrmann‘s Romeo + Juliet. And this morning, as the sun rose over the detritus of last night’s Oscars celebrations, one carpet emerged victorious and unblemished by the unsightly stains of blood and mud and whatever it was that Fine Ass Jonathan Majors had in his tiny silver sipping cup. For reasons we may only understand after Baz makes a movie about it, after weeks of torrential rain, the Academy of Motion Picture Sciences decided this was the year to break with a 64-year tradition and pull the Red Carpet out from under our feet in exchange for a Champagne Industrial Rug. For revenge, Florence Pugh could barely be bothered to dress for the big event so she just brushed her ponytail to the front and grabbed a beige duvet cover out of the dirty laundry for the Oscars, saving her pink comforter for the Blue Carpet at the Vanity Fair after party.
Cate Blanchett Calls For The End Of Televised Awards Shows While Accepting A Critics Choice Award On The CW…
The Critics Choice Awards aired on The CW last night, and a not-so-surprising guest crashed that shit like, “Bitch, I’m STILL here.” I’m talking about COVID-19. Nominees Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, and Jamie Lee Curtis, as well as presenter Michelle Pfeiffer, had to sit the show out after testing positive for Coronavirus. COVID-19 didn’t fuck with Cate Blanchett, though. She showed up to last night’s ceremony, won Best Actress for her performance in Tár, and used some of her time on stage to praise all actresses in the business and also declared that we need to finally call the time of death on the “televised horse race” known as awards shows. And then Cate galloped away with her Critics Choice Award in hand to place it right next to her two Oscars, three BAFTAs, four Golden Globes, three SAG Awards, and many other horse race prizes.
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!
Open Post: Hosted By Ariana Grande Asking Jennifer Coolidge About The “Best Dick” She Got From Playing Stifler’s Mom
Career-wise, Jennifer Coolidge has had a really great couple of years, thanks to The White Lotus. I cannot say the same about her personal life because I do not know her personally. But guess who does? Jennifer’s super-fan Ariana Grande. Ariana’s so Coolidge-obsessed that she cast Jennifer in the video for her 2019 hit thank u, next and pulled off a pretty impressive impression of her Best in Show character this past Halloween. Now Ariana has interviewed Jennifer for Entertainment Weekly’s 2022 Entertainers of the Year issue, and she didn’t shy away from asking the hard-hitting questions. For example: “Do you remember the best dick you got from playing Stifler’s mom?” Oh, sweetie, you never forget the best dick (shout out to the Newfie lawyer I met after an Arcade Fire concert in 2014).
