You may have noticed at Sunday’s Golden Globes that along with wearing all black to the awards, many of the famous men in attendance were wearing pins that said “Time’s Up” – showing their support for sexual misconduct victims. However, not all of those wearing the pin donated to the cause’s GoFundMe page. Only about six out of the 20 that wore the pins donated.
After Seth Meyers (sort of) joked about Oprah running for president at the Golden Globes, her prospective candidacy almost took on a life of its own online, with NBC tweeting, “Nothing but respect for OUR future president,” alongside a photo of Oprah. This upset their current president, Donald Trump, who tweeted that NBC’s support of Winfrey’s would-be candidacy showed media bias. NBC has since deleted the tweet and apologized for posting it, explaining it “was not meant to be a political statement.”
Congrats are in order for Gwyneth Paltrow and her longtime boyfriend, Hollywood producer Brad Falchuk, who confirmed their engagement Monday. The couple met on the set of Glee back in 2014.
The ABC revival of American Idol won’t highlight “bad” auditions the way that the FOX rendition of the show did. Producers of the show say it doesn’t feel comfortable to put borderline unstable people up and laugh at them or to make the show feel fake or manipulated; they want humour, not exploitation. But what’s the point in watching it if I can’t make fun of people in order to make me feel better about myself?
Donald Trump made an appearance at the college football National Championship in Atlanta last night; he was greeted with mixed reactions (boos and/or cheers) when he walked out on the field but it was his national anthem sing-along that had people puzzled: it appeared as if he didn’t know the words. He mouthed the parts everyone kind of knows – even Canadians – but for someone who is very critical about football players standing for the anthem, the guy should at least know the words to it.
