To some people, Colin Jost is the visual indicator that it’s time for their regularly scheduled pee break in the middle of a Saturday Night Live episode. To others, he’s Leslie Jones’ unrequited white boy crush. And for the past three years, he’s also been the TV guy who is with Scarlett Johansson. That’s probably because Scarlett Johansson is an extremely famous, internationally known A-list Hollywood actress, and Colin is known to some as the guy who chuckles respectively at Michael Che’s jokes on Weekend Update. Colin recently admitted that he was worried his identity would become exactly what some people saw him as, which to a whole lot of people was, and still might be, Mr. ScarJo.
Halle Berry pulled a quick 180 after first showing a lot of interest in portraying a transgender man in a movie. Few problems here: Halle would have clearly been taking a role away from an actual trans person, and when she talked about the part she misgendered the character a lot. So… Halle heard the people loud and clear and she reversed course, apologizing for even thinking about it. And now the role can go to a more appropriate actor, like noted shape-shifter Scarlett Johansson!
Before Black Widow was pushed from its original release date of May 1, 2020, to November 6, 2020, Scarlett Johansson did an interview with Parade to promote it. She talked about her life and career and said that she’s made a career out of “being second choice.” Yes, ScarJo is the definition of an underdog and nothing says “underdog” like being the highest-paid actress in the world two years in a row.
Colin Jost, one of the hosts, along with Michael Che, of Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live, is thinking about leaving the show after the 2020 election. Because honestly, being Scarlett Johansson’s date to awards shows is a full-time job. There’s word that Megyn Kelly wants to make a TV COMEBACK, so maybe she should kiss and make up with NBC and take Colin’s spot since what comes out of her mouth is 100% laughable.
I’m fucking kidding of course. This year’s Oscars red carpet was about as glamorous as a back alley gluteal augmentation. Not even red carpet darling Billy Porter could save this parade of half-baked ideas which ranged from Saoirse Ronan’s front butt ruffle to Laura Dern’s titty-tassels. The real kicker is that, for reasons I will never accept, Blac Chyna was invited to pose for hundreds of pictures looking like a second string (ok, twelfth string) Cruella de Vil who smothered Cookie Monster with her bosom, skinned him with her talons and used his pelt for this dress. Meanwhile, the cast of Best Picture winning Parasite, were only photographed together in a group. The fuck? At least they let them use the slo-mo cam which is a big improvement on Giuliana Rancic’s (below, go easy on her, she’s dealing with some intestinal distress) Mani-Cam of yore.
Just because all of the BAFTA acting nominations went to white people, that doesn’t mean the white people that were nominated are afraid of a little color (not sure we can’t say the same for the BAFTA president Prince William). While some stars like Margot Robbie, who looked like she just came from a beloved aunt’s funeral (with Olivia Colman looking like said beloved aunt), went for basic black, and some like Renée Zellweger and Scarlett Johansson opted for a pastel palette, a few ladies took the opportunity to brighten up the foggy London town night by putting the “u” in colour. Take for example Florence Pugh whose hot pink housecoat doubles as a parachute in case the feds come knocking at the brothel door and she has to make a quick exit out of a 4th story window and hop into the horse drawn carriage waiting below.
