-EW has our first look at Ryan Murphy’s new series starring Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange as Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in Feud. God, I want this in my eyeballs right now…
-Speaking of Ryan Murphy shows, his next topic for American Crime Story might be Monica Lewinsky. Gimmie!!
-An ET reporter dared ask JLo about collaborating with Drake and she wasn’t having it. (Imagine if she’d actually been asked about *collaborating* with Drake…)
-At last night’s People’s Choice Awards, Blake Lively‘s acceptance speech was all about girl power but she won for a movie about a shark so I was a little confused. At least her outfit was pretty great. AND she brought her sister Robyn from Teen Witch!
-Speaking of PCA speeches that I liked the intent of but didn’t really understand, I *think* Sarah Jessica Parker was talking about appreciating her fandom? Maybe?
-In other PCA news, I was really bummed by Kristen Bell’s outfit. As the Fug Girls remarked, it looked like she was trying to bring back Varsity Blue’s whipped cream bikini.
-Celine Dion is contributing an original song to the Beauty & the Beast soundtrack and suddenly the world doesn’t seem so dark.
-Donald Glover is really owning this coat. Is he trying to audition for the all-female Ocean’s Eleven remake or something?
-This video of the This Is Us cast being told the show is getting renewed for two more seasons is all kinds of cute.
-Alanis Morissette‘s ex-manager admitted in court to embezzling $4.8 million from the singer.
-Chrissy Teigan is here to remind us that the paparazzi is gross.
-I still can’t believe that Anne Hathaway‘s Colossal is getting distribution. It’s one of the weirdest movies I saw last year (in a good way!). Here’s the first promo.
-Chris Evans is such an adorable puppy.
-Sad news: character actor Miguel Ferrer (who also happens to be George Clooney‘s cousin) passed away at 61.
-Jesus. A Trump staffer says Kanye West isn’t “traditionally American” enough to perform at the inauguration.
-The new Japandroids album is streaming on CBC and it’s sooooo good!
-There’s also a new Arcade Fire song.
-Kevin Smith is directing more Supergirl later this year. I like this gig for him (he did a really, really great job on The Flash). As long as he keeps his Black Canary-loving butt away from Arrow…
-Speaking of Supergirl, this is a really good article on why it’s the most progressive show on TV right now. I really should try it again.
-In other geeky TV news, Amazon is adapting Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. YASS!!
-I don’t watch Sherlock but from everything I’ve ever read about Steven Moffat, I’m not surprised to hear him dismiss female fans’ (and the actress in question’s) reaction to a recent episode.
-I’ve never understood how come every year there’s always one sound that becomes ubiquitous in movie trailers? I feel like Cameron Diaz’s character in The Holiday could really shed some light here…
-Bryan Cranston is a giant talking head, Kanye West sings, and Elizabeth Banks wears green contact lenses in the first Power Rangers trailer.
-In much more promising trailer news, the latest promo for Logan continues to impress.
