Thanks to the whole Pajiba staff for letting me crowdsource today’s Pajiba Love
while I fight off a hangover for a change of pace! Via all your Overlords:
TK’s sister just made Broadway history! (Lainey)
Patrick Stewart and a bunch more of your favorite actors are slinging Shakespearean insults in an effort to raise money for a fantastic theatre company. (Mary Sue)
And now we know why Rihanna bailed on her Grammy performance. (Dlisted)
The Brutally Honest Oscar Ballot is back. There are a lot of great, depressing quotes, but the big takeaway is how glad I am that I don’t work in sound editing or mixing. (THR)
Jessica Williams met up for the third time with the homophobic minister who previously tried to convince her that Starbucks flavors their lattes with semen. This guy is the literal worst. This time, he’s talking “sodomites” and the babies they’ll carry in their testicles if his church is shut down. (Gothamist)
Lin-Mauel Miranda shared this first draft version of “My Shot” and I just want to swim around in the Mulligan goodness for days.
And here's the first draft of My Shot w Mulligan goodness for the newbies.https://t.co/gz3EluYctz— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) February 23, 2016
Now I REALLY HAVE TO WRITE BYYYE.
SNL’s Sasheer Zamata wrote a beautiful piece on Hollywood’s diversity problems, and has some ideas for how to move forward. (Cosmo)
While we’re on the subject, 27 Hollywood players (none of whom is a straight white dude) shared their stories. (NYT)
I don’t… I mean… What?
You know that Parks & Rec quote about a meat tornado literally killing a guy? Yeah, maybe we should keep a few of our Ron Swanson aspirations in check. (QZ)
Cate Blanchett’s dress looks like it’s made of molten space perfection. (Go Fug Yourself)
This interview between Casey Affleck and Stephen Colbert is so awkward that it’s hard to tell if it’s a put-on or if Colbert is being weirdly dismissive of Affleck because of the way he dressed. (LG)
If your world was rocked in the 1980s when the Brontosaurus was relegated to Pluto-status (or rather, denounced as not a dinosaur, was never a dinosaur, and should never have been named a dinosaur to begin with), then Cannonballer terroringlasses says My Beloved Brontosaurus by Brian Switek is the book for you. "For a topic as dry as dinosaur bones, the writing is funny." Make sure you check out the chapter on dinosaur sex! (Cannonball Read 8)
