Jada Pinkett Smith: The HFPA didn't screen Girls Trip for Globes consideration
Jada Pinkett Smith speaks her piece when she and the people she cares about get snubbed for awards. Do you remember when she was one of the first people calling out #OscarsSoWhite? She even boycotted the Oscars in 2016. That was on behalf of her husband Will being snubbed for Concussion, which was part of a larger issue that has always loomed over Hollywood and is finally being discussed. Now that the Golden Globe nominations are out, Jada has a few things to say about the fact that Tiffany Haddish, the standout star of her hit comedy Girls Trip, was not recognized. She tweeted that the Hollywood Foreign Press didn?t even screen the film, which they deny. More on that in a moment. Here are some of her tweets about this, which are well put. I’m posting them in order of oldest to newest, so you can read from the top down.

I'm not upset about @TiffanyHaddish or @GirlsTripMovie not getting a nom… I'm discouraged about the fact that the Hollywood Foreign Press/@goldenglobes wouldn't even WATCH the movie.

Jennifer Lawrence just signed on to play a 19th century Icelandic murderess, sure

Jennifer Lawrence just signed on to play a 19th century Icelandic murderess, sure
One of the ?snubs? of the Golden Globes nominations was none other than America?s Farty Sweetheart, Jennifer Lawrence. I respected J-Law?s game, quite honestly, even if I was convinced that ?mother!? was trash. Jen knows that people love her and that awards shows love to invite her to everything, and she played that game well, openly campaigning for some Best Actress nominations. In another year with a less crowded Best Actress field, I would say that Jennifer might have pulled it off. But there are a lot of worthy women this year, so Jennifer didn?t make the cut at the Golden Globes or the SAGs. I would imagine she will not make the cut for the Oscars, but who knows, really? Hilariously, E! News is already trying to prepare the world for another awards season without J-Law.

Meanwhile, J-Law still gets all of the scripts. She?s just signed on to a new movie that sounds very? Oscar-baity. And strange.

Luca Guadagnino, currently drumming up Oscar buzz for the ravishing ?Call Me by Your Name,? will direct Jennifer Lawrence in ?Burial Rites,? Variety has learned. Lawrence will produce, as well as star in the true-crime drama. TriStar Pictures, a division of Sony Pictures, has worldwide rights to the picture.

The film draws on Hannah Kent?s 2013 novel of the same name, and centers on Agnes Magnusdottir (Lawrence), the last woman to be publicly executed in Iceland in 1830. Agnes was sentenced to death for killing two men and setting fire to their home. The story takes place as Agnes awaits confirmation of her death sentence by the high court, a period of time that finds her reluctantly forging emotional and romantic bonds, while reflecting on her supposed crimes.

In addition to ?Call Me by Your Name,? a romantic drama that?s received critical raves and just picked up three Golden Globe nominations, Guadagnino directed ?A Bigger Splash? and ?I Am Love.? His upcoming projects include a remake of the horror classic ?Suspiria? and ?Rio,? a thriller with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Set in Iceland in 1830? While that?s not traditional Oscar-bait, it sounds intriguing and weird. My biggest question is? will Jen attempt an accent? I think she?s really talented, but I?m not sure if I could watch a whole movie with Jen trying to do an Icelandic accent.

Salma Hayek wrote a harrowing op-ed about Harvey Weinstein's years of abuse

Salma Hayek wrote a harrowing op-ed about Harvey Weinstein's years of abuse
The New York Times published an op-ed from Salma Hayek on Wednesday. If you haven?t read it already, you need to prepare yourself emotionally, because it is another gut-wrenching story about Harvey Weinstein. Salma talks at length about why she didn?t come forward sooner, and it?s a vivid portrait of how even one of the most famous and beautiful women in the world can still deal with the guilt and self-blaming that comes with being abused and being harassed. She acknowledges that her story isn?t better or worse than other stories about Harvey Weinstein, and acknowledges that her friendships and connections with powerful people in Weinstein?s orbit – people like Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino and George Clooney – probably ?saved? her from a worse fate. You can read the full piece here:

Salma Hayek on Harvey Weinstein, in @nytopinion:"No to letting a naked friend of his give me a massage.No to letting him give me oral sex.No to my getting naked with another woman.No, no, no …And with every refusal came Harvey?s Machiavellian rage."
