The Razzies Have Rescinded Their “Worst Actor” Nomination For The 12-Year-Old Who Starred In “Firestarter”

January 25, 2023 / Posted by:

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more beleaguered awards body than the HFPA, the hosts of the Golden Globes. But as evidenced by their triumphant return to network television, albeit on a Tuesday night, their assurances of increased transparency, diversity, and bottomless champagne were enough to lure Brad Pitt away from his pottery studio. However, even enough champagne to fill the Nile can’t restore the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation to its glory days when big stars like *checks notes* Tom Green accepted their awards in person. Last year The Razzie Awards came under fire for devoting an entire category to the work of Bruce Willis, who, as we know, suffers from aphasia. They eventually rescinded that nomination, as well as Shelley Duvall‘s 1981 nomination for The Shining. And earlier this week, a 12-year-old girl, Ryan Kiera Armstrong, woke up to learn she’d been nominated for Worst Actor for a Blumhouse remake of Firestarter.

Some “Saturday Night Live” Writers Are Rumored To Be Boycotting This Week’s Show In Protest Of Dave Chappelle Hosting

November 10, 2022 / Posted by:

Because of Dave Chappelle’s history of jokes that many find homophobic and transphobic, he’s since become the festering church fart many make a concerted effort to avoid (or try to swat into dissipation). His last Netflix special, The Closer, drew a great deal of ire and protest when it came out last year; and now Page Six reported that several Saturday Night Live staff writers are sitting out this week’s show as a statement of their disapproval of him being chosen to host. I mean, SNL has been sitting out SNL for about five years as it is, so this Saturday’s episode may be especially devoid of sketches that cause people to make quiet “mmph” sounds through their nostrils in acknowledgment that a joke was just attempted.

Matthew Perry Seems To Hate Keanu Reeves For No Good Reason

October 26, 2022 / Posted by:

Other than Dolly Parton, you’d be hard-pressed to name a celebrity more universally beloved than the Internet’s Boyfriend (2019 – ‘til the wheels fall off and we’re back to stanning via tin cans tied together with a string) Keanu Reeves. However, Matthew Perry apparently hates the dude. And here I thought the big, terrible thing referenced in Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing, the addiction memoir Matthew’s currency hawking, was his addiction. But considering Matthew’s seemingly unfounded detest for the man who would not only never hurt a fly, but would probably befriend a fly and let it live in his guest house rent-free until it could get back on his wings, I think the Big Terrible Thing in Matthew’s book might be Keanu himself.

Normani Has Been Called Out For Appearing In A Music Video With Chris Brown

June 23, 2022 / Posted by:

Two days ago, Chris Brown reminded us that, much like that one line of moldy shower tile grout that is forever resistant to bleach and scrubbing, he’ll truly never go away, when he released the music video for his latest song, “WE (Warm Embrace).” Chris Brown has been locked in a warm embrace with (allegedly) shitty behavior for several decades now, but since you can’t sensually shimmy up to bad PR, he needed a human stand-in for his video. And who did he choose, but former fifth harmonizer, Normani. That’s not going over well with the type of people yelling, “NOOOOrmani, why?” after seeing her accept the gig as Chris’ dance partner in the video.

Netflix Is Being Sued By Shareholders Over Its 200,000 Subscriber Loss

May 5, 2022 / Posted by:

Netflix might want to consider putting all those Stranger Things kids to work selling candy bars or hosting a weekend-long charity car wash – anything to make back some of the alleged millions they blew on the latest episodes of Stranger Things. Because there’s been a recent development in Netflix’s ongoing business drama, and it’s one that could find Netflix tied up with some very expensive legal bills for a while. Every Netflix subscriber just braced themselves for an email notification informing them that the monthly rate just jumped to $250 a month, and a request that you consider making a generous donation to the good people at Netflix on top of that. Please? They’ll send you a stylish tote bag! Maybe. That’s if they have time in between fighting their shareholders in court and general panicking.
