WORLD WIDE WEB BULLETIN
Wandavision, Coming 2 America, and the Glitchiest Golden Globes of All Time
Straight from the Interview offices—which now span from midtown Manhattan to brownstone Brooklyn, L.A. to the U.K., and beyond—this is the Word Wide Web Bulletin, a compilation of our favorite internet gossip from this week. This week: Wandavision comes to an end, Chloé Zhao makes history at the Golden Globes, and Cardi comes back to TV. Let’s talk about it.
Chloé Zhao Makes History at the Golden Globes, and More Women Winning Awards
During last Sunday’s Golden Globes—a bicoastal and Black Mirror-esque ceremony hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler—stars showed up and showed off to celebrate their hard work. Nomadland director Chloé Zhao made history, becoming the first woman to win the Best Director category in nearly 40 years. Throughout the night the Foreign Press Association promised to do better while actors criticized the FPA during their acceptance speeches. Meanwhile, glitches abound, particularly in the acceptance speech of Daniel Kaluuya, for his role in Judas and the Black Messiah, who was on mute. (Who among us?) Anya-Taylor Joy won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a limited series/tv movie actress for her work in The Queen’s Gambit, and the Grammy-nominated singer Andra Day followed in the footsteps of Whoopi Goldberg when she took home the Globe for best actress in a drama film for her embodiment of Billie Holiday in Daniel Lee’s The United States vs. Billie Holiday; they are the only two women of color to ever win that award. Oh, Hollywood. I can’t live with you, and can’t live without you.
Drake is Back with an EP, and It’s, Like, Really Good
The internet’s favorite lover boy is back, and according to Twitter, better than ever. The Toronto superstar released Scary Hours 2—not the expected follow-up to 2020’s Dark Lane Demo Tapes. Instead, Drizzy delivered an EP on three songs about how hard it is to be one of the most influential artists of the time.
Long Live Queer TV
It’s a sad day for fans of the revolutionary and culture-altering show Pose. The show’s creators announced today the highly-anticipated upcoming third season of the series will be its last. Beyond re-introducing the history of the ball scene in New York in the ’80s and highlighting the gravity of the AIDS pandemic, the show also made history for having the largest number of transgender actors ever in a TV series. Also, Janet Mock became the first trans woman of color hired as a TV writer, and the first-ever trans woman of color to direct a TV episode. In honor of the show that literally changed everything, revisit the time Billy Porter fabulously reviewed trench coats for Interview, and dive into his legendary conversation with none other than José Xtravaganza, the man who Madonna chose to help choreograph her “Vogue” video and a direct inspiration for Pose. And while you’re there get into this conversation between actor Angelica Ross and the journalist Raquel Willis. You better work, and dip, and learn your history, kids.
E! True Hollywood Story—We Love History!
The era-defining show and identity builder for many children of the aughts is coming back, literally in a few days. Few things are sacred lately, and after the Kardashian-size void left at the network, E!’s decision to revive E! True Hollywood Story on March 15th for pop-obsessed weirdos is, if nothing, a glimmer of hope. The best is yet to come. Oh, and did we mention that the premiere episode features the story of our March cover star, Cardi B? We can hardly wait. In the meantime, get close and personal with Cardi and Mariah Carey here, where they talk about bras, boyfriends, and breaking records.
The Wandavision Season Finale is Why We Can’t Ever Have Nice Things 🙁
Though there are rumors swirling around the internet about the possibility of a quasi-normal summer bring joy to my broken heart, the end of Wandavision—the best television series of the moment and the only Marvel production ever to become the object of my obsession—feels like a direct blow. The show has delivered through and through with its perfect casting of Kathryn Hahn as Agatha, an evil witch who happens to be behind the chaos all along, and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda and many iterations of a happy housewife, paying homage along the way to the best comedies of all time. What will the world look like after WandaVision? We may not know, but in the meantime, read this conversation between Olsen and Paul Bettany, who stars as Wanda’s husband Vision, about their real-life chemistry.
Coming 2 America
The movie everyone’s been waiting for is finally here. Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall, or Akeem and Semmi, return to the United States, searching for a prince in Amazon Prime’s follow-up to the 1988 comedy classic, Coming to America. Things have changed since then, but one thing remains constant: the duo’s joyful, laugh-out-loud comedy. As the weekend mood sets in, read up on another long-awaited reunion: Hall and Magic Johnson from our March issue, out now. Or lay eyes on the film’s new lead, Jermaine Fowler, on horseback. Giddy up, cowboys.
