At last night’s Golden Globes, Eddie Murphy received the Cecil B. DeMille Award . . . which is basically a lifetime achievement thing. And he created the night’s biggest viral moment during his acceptance speech.
It was also a good night for “Everything Everywhere All at Once”. Ke Huy Quan won Best Supporting Actor, and in a very emotional speech, he thanked Steven Spielberg for giving him his first job. He was the boy in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”. Here’s a piece of his a very emotional speech. You may know him as Data from the Goonies and get this, Ke Huy Quan used his “Goonies” co-star Jeff Cohen to negotiate his contract for “Everything Everywhere All at Once”. The producer told him he never expected to have to, quote, “talk to Chunk and Data for his movie.” His co-star Michelle Yeoh won her first Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, and the producers made the mistake of starting the play-off music to make her end her speech. She said, quote, “Shut up, please. I can beat you up, okay? And that’s serious.” (Here’s video. And here’s her full speech. It’s true, you know. Michelle was a legit action / martial arts star in her day.) Jennifer Coolidge won Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series for “The White Lotus”, and was her typical, hilarious self. (PROFANITY WARNING: The clip is uncensored. Jennifer also had everyone cracking up when she presented an award earlier in the night.) As you know, the Globes is one of those award shows where the celebrities get their drink on. And it seemed like presenter Regina Hall was in the bag. She called herself Brad Pitt’s wife, and then laughed about Kevin Costner not being able to be there to accept his award. When “The White Lotus” won Best Miniseries or TV Movie, Mike White fully admitted he was hammered. (Check out the winners list here.)
You might remember back in 2019 Arnold Schwarzenegger said that O.J. Simpson was originally cast as the lead in “The Terminator”. To refresh your memory, Arnold said, quote, “Somehow [director James Cameron] felt that he was not as believable for a killing machine. So then they hired me. That’s really what happened.” Well, on a recent episode of the HBO Max show, “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace”, James shot down Arnold’s claims. Quote, “Very early on, a highly placed person at one of the two studios that funded [‘The Terminator’] had a brilliant idea and called me up and said, ‘Are you sitting down?’ I said, ‘Well, no, I’m not.’ . . . “He said, ‘Are you sitting? O.J. Simpson for the Terminator!’ I said, ‘I actually think that’s a bad idea.’ It didn’t go anywhere.” (And it’s probably a good thing . . .) (Variety)
Jeremy Renner is making major strides following a frightening New Year’s Day snowplow accident on his property in Reno, Nevada. “We are so thrilled with his progress,” the actor’s sister, Kym Renner, says in the new issue of PEOPLE. “If anyone knows Jeremy, he is a fighter and doesn’t mess around. He is crushing all the progress goals. We couldn’t feel more positive about the road ahead.” The Marvel Cinematic Universe actor, 52, has been hospitalized since Jan. 1, when he was airlifted to a local medical center. He suffered “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries,” according to a statement from his rep, and underwent emergency surgery the next day. Renner gave his first update to fans on Jan. 3, posting a hospital bed selfie to Instagram and thanking well-wishers for their support. “Thank you all for your kind words. 🙏. Im too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all.”
Judge Judy called Prince Harry “selfish” and “spoiled” for writing bombshell claims against his royal family in his new memoir, “Spare.” “I will tell you that I would be furious, and would think that that child or that grandchild was a selfish, spoiled, ungrateful one,” the “Judge Judy” star (real name: Judy Sheindlin) said Tuesday on “Good Morning Britain.”
Sheindlin’s brutally honest response came after she was asked how she would feel if her own family member had done that to her. “That’s what I would feel, and be really hurt,” Sheindlin, 80, continued. “I think anybody – anybody with a brain – would see that it’s disingenuous. It’s biting the hand that fed you, it’s unseemly.” (LINK)
Getting home proves an especially bizarre and danger-filled journey for a paranoid man with mommy issues, played by Joaquin Phoenix, in the first trailer for Beau is Afraid, which dropped on yesterday. The synopsis says this “a paranoid man embarks on an epic odyssey to get home to his mother in this bold and ingeniously depraved new film from writer/director Ari Aster.” The teaser is pretty wild. This was made by the guy and studio that did Midsommar. Joaquin Phoenix, Nathan Lane, Amy Ryan, Parker Posey, Richard Kind are all in it and it almost gives me Midsommar meets The Joker meets Her kinda vibes. Very artsy but in a clever and maybe even frightening kind of way. Out April 21.
The latest Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania trailer is here! Marvel Studios dropped the second major trailer during the 2022 College Football Championship game.
