On Fridays we don’t wear pink, but do talk about pop culture-y things. This week there’s stories to be tracked down and articles to read. The likely result to be mostly news about television series or shows. That’s just the rules. We don’t make them. pop culture news seventy✨POP CULTURE NEWS SEVENTY:AWARD NOMINATIONS AND A SUSRPRISE ENDING ✨ #NCISLA #TAYLORSWIFT #LAVENDERHAZE #MUSICVIDEO #ELVIS #OSCARNOMINATIONS #TOPGUN #MOVIES #BLAKELIVELY Click To Tweet
Every week I hope there’s more of a discussion story because I find it fun and sometimes interesting (as it helps define what I think of the story) to actually write down my thoughts about the headline maker. Most of the time though it’s more minor news that while sometimes fun, isn’t quite worth a feature, thoughtful paragraph. Now that you know how all of these go and what the general idea of these weekly posts are, let’s get down to finding our mentions for the week.
POP CULTURE NEWS SEVENTY
Oscar nominees dropped this week and honestly… I couldn’t care less. I used to watch the latter half of the show and write some content. Now the most I do is recap its fashion looks the next day. Some of the best picture nominees include All Quiet on the Western Front, Elvis, The Fablemans, and while I don’t mind it being nominated, I’m sure it’s just because of its impressive numbers, there was Top Gun: Maverick, among others. Of course there’s also articles about the snubs and the people “shut out” in what the headline ascribes to being sexist.
Taylor Swift dropped a ‘Lavender Haze’ music video. It’s actually one of my least favorite songs because I think the lyrics lean too much into an “option a” or “option b” choice that isn’t true of today’s society. (Could be the fact that the song is inspired by a phrase from the 50s, but the video and other lyrics are modern, so…) But I know most adore the song. Did you like the video?
After news broke that a Princess Diaries 3 is in the works, Anne Hathaway made remarks about how exciting it is to see fan’s reactions. However she also said that the making of this film is a “process that requires patience.” Goodness, I just hope it’s not too much time before we see this film!
Universal Pictures scrapped the biopic about Madonna that said she was also going to direct with Julia Garner playing her role.
If you like the kind of controversial Netflix comedy(?) or is it a drama(?), The Recruit, you may like to know, it’s coming back for a second season.
Just missing my line up from last week, CBS cancels its long running NCIS: Los Angeles. This leaves the OG NCIS and NCIS: Hawaii as the final two in the franchise. This after the swift backdoor pilot didn’t-go-anywhere death of NCIS: Red and the longer running NCIS: New Orleans.
The One of us is Lying and Vampire Academy TV shows, both adaptations of novels, are over at Peacock.
If you were a superfan of the novel, the trailer dropped for Amazon Prime’s Daisy Jones and the Six. Featuring Riley Keough in the titular role, the series is based on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s novel.
Avid Colleen Hoover fans may know that Blake Lively is set to produce and star in the It Ends with Us adaptation. Starring alongside her and also pulling double duty is Justin Baldoni who will also direct the feature. Lively plays a character meeting someone new only for her ex to walk back into her life just as she falls in love again.
