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.
Just because we’re still in the middle of a pandemic and Heidi Klum’s annual Halloween party didn’t happen for the second year in a row, doesn’t mean that the other celebrities won’t get together and tear shit up for attention. Much like a drag queen, if a celebrity isn’t working Halloween they are losing money! Harry Styles’ tour took him to Madison Square Garden in NYC on Halloween, and he decided to get festive by dressing up as a hobo hipster who just so happened to find a Dorothy Gale costume in the dumpster.
I watched this new trailer for the Ryan Murphy’s take on the Broadway musical The Prom for Netflix and thought, “oh, so it’s like if Ryan Murphy did Glee” and it took me waaaaay too long to remember that Ryan Murphy actually made Glee so now I guess I’ll say “oh, it’s like if 2010 Ryan Murphy had 2020 Ryan Murphy money plus Meryl Streep!” Or maybe since Nicole Kidman is in it, it’s more like, “oh, so it’s Baz Luhrmann Presents: Glee.” At any rate The Prom is very, very shiny.
The Emmys happened last night despite nobody being allowed near each other due to coronavirus still spreading through humanity one TikTok party mansion at a time. A few celebrities (like Jennifer Aniston, Tracee Ellis Ross, Laverne Cox, etc…) showed up at the Staples Center to present, but most celebrities stayed home. The ceremonial red carpet was switched up and the famous people just took their own pics and posted them themselves. Their choice of professional photography and they don’t have to make small talk with whatever half-peasant correspondent was put in front of them? Talk about a big win.
Like every Hollywood event, the 2020 Golden Globes offered for us peasants a plethora of fashion delights and disasters to witness and froth over. Outfits ranged from: Classic Elegance to Fancy Prostitute. Who won and lost the night is debatable but one thing is for sure: 97% of these clothes are being returned to whatever designer loaned it to the celebrity for a night. You think rich folk keep or pay for award gowns and jewels? LOL! No.
People reports that rich people who are in a higher class than you and are friends with each other, also knew each other when they were younger! Cool, huh? Gwyneth Paltrow and Kerry Washington went to high school together. Gwyneth was a senior and Kerry was an eight-grader. And guess what? Gwyneth was just like she is now. Gwyneth Paltrow as a moody, snobby teenager? YIKES times infinity.
