Welp, we couldn’t wait until Friday to share all of the things that’s turning us on this week, so let’s jump right in!
Oh, the SAGs — that’s when you know you’re in the thick of it. The Screen Actors Guild Awards always falls just after the Golden Globes and right before the Oscars — kind of like a fancy hotel lunch (that includes drinks and appetizers — I know, appetizers at lunch?! SWANKY!) of the awards season. But what truly sets the SAGs apart from the bunch is 1 - it’s, like, five hours shorter and 2 - it’s actors nominated by their peers for their work in film and television. Receiving one of those trophies is like getting the ultimate fist bump from your fellow thespians. PLUS, there’s tons of pretty people to look at. Here’s some of the highlights from this year’s show:
Mani Cam DENIED!!
(uhhh, or maybe she’s just ethnic…)
… could be a 49-year-old dark-skinned African-American woman who looks like me.”
There’s a plethora of artists out there doodling masterpieces all over Seattle’s most famous coffee cups, so one Instahamer decided to take a different approach by drawing pop culture characters on those little cardboard siren sweaters. Artist @sleevebucks pens everyday people and also tackles themes like Disney, Marvel and Harry Potter. To top it all off, the illustrations are delightfully expresso-ive and have punny cuptions like Beanadict Cumberbatch and Marilyn Monroast. Ahhh, finally. A legit reason to like Starbucks.
The Ghostbusters Reboot
BLAH BLAH BLAH my childhood’s ruined WAH WAH WAH oh get over it. It’s the Age of the Reboot, folks, and as much as Hollywood enjoys butt sexing our cherished memories for every stinkin’ penny, who really wants to see some other dude replace Bill Murray as Dr. Peter Venkman? So, why not toss it to the ladies? The crackerjack team of comedians — comprised of the shartastically hilarious Kristin Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, have all proven themselves worthy to strap on the pack and blast some specters. Besides, as long as Slimer makes a cameo, who gives a poop?
Speaking of poop, Paul McCartney is about four or five seconds from a colostomy bag, amiright? Aw, c’mon! The dude’s as old a Bilbo Baggins! It’s probably for the best that he went ahead and got this out of his system. HA. But seriously, it’s The Beatles front man that sets the tone for this whole collaboration. We’ve never heard Kayne or Ri Ri (really) sing like this before, so it’s definitely worth a listen. AND everyone’s talking about it. You really don’t want to be the only one at Chipotle eating your carnitas burrito bowl in the corner with nothing to say, do you? Then there’s nothing left to do but WYLE OUT!
Winter Storm Juno
Winter Storm Juno was kind of lame. A paper napkin from KFC could cover more of the Northeast than that piddly shit show. Sure, it was named after that cute pregnant girl with the cheeseburger phone, but all this blow hard hub bub has done is remind America how hard the winter should go fuck itself.
Nessie the Loch Ness Ladle
Nessie the Loch Ness Ladle is having the best week ever! After all this time she’s surfaced from the depths (of our hearts) TO BRING US SOUP! The most adorable kitchen utensil you’ve ever seen recently blew up the interwebs with cuteness and has made some impressive stand-in on-screen cameos. Right now Nessie is only available for purchase across the pond, but she’s due for a U.S. tour next month! The only catch is, she’s in such high demand that the Scottish manufacturers are estimating back orders until May. NO HOAX!
