Well, well, well. Look who decided that Leslie Jones live-tweeting the Olympics is actually to their benefit and trying to crack down on her doing so was a bad look: “This was the result of a third-party error, and the situation has been resolved. She is free to do her social media posts as she has done in the past. She is a super fan of the Olympics, and we are super fans of her,” said NBC.

The Oscar nominees were announced this morning. Here’s where you can watch and/or stream the Best Picture nominees. I’m going to be completely honest with you: I have seen exactly TWO films that were nominated, and neither of them were nominated for Best Picture or in any of the acting or directing categories. I haven’t even seen Dune. Thankfully, a lot of these movies are available to stream, so maybe I spend a couple of weekends bingeing? We’ll see. Oh, and you’re welcome to try to guess which two movies I’ve seen, but good luck!

From is a new show produced by some former Lost producers (not Cuse or Lindelof) that will debut on Epix on February 20, and the producers SWEAR they won’t make the same mistakes Lost did.

Oscar Isaac sums up why TV is better than big-budget movies right now.

There’s a stand-up comedian Netflix controversy that has nothing to do with Dave Chappelle, but it is a good illustration of how the First Amendment works. (And how cancel culture isn’t really a thing in a capitalist society — it’s just a marketplace of ideas and no one is obligated to buy your bullshit — but I digress.)
