Halle Berry and the Double-Edged Sword of Oscars While Black

Halle Berry is—and will be until (possibly) the Oscars after this one, the only Black actress and only woman of color to ever win Best Actress in a Motion Picture. This excellent video from Be Kind Rewind looks at the lack of opportunity for Black actresses and the huge gaps in nominations, highlighting that between 1940 and 1991 no Black woman won an Oscar until Whoopi Goldberg in Ghost for Best Supporting Actress.

The video explores Halle Berry, and I saw someone mention that Halle Berry should have the same career as Charlize Theron, and for some reason, it was the first time that correlation clicked to me. Both are beautiful women who won Oscars in roles that challenged their established beauty queen image. For multiple reasons, Berry’s role in Monster’s Ball has a different kind of response that Theron’s Monster, but what it did do for their public image was tell the world they had talent beyond their glamour.

My feelings on Monster’s Ball are mixed because I do think it plays into a lot of stereotypical Black sexualization. But the bigger problem is that post-Monster’s Ball the conversation about any actual talent Berry had was overshadowed by the shitty movies she was in and having to be in one of the worst Bond movies ever in Die Another Day

Because of her race, Halle Berry is still limited to the kinds of roles she can get because her Blackness cannot be erased. When it comes to Charlize Theron, she can play the Evil Queen in a big budget Fairy Tale movie or the fallen beauty queen or the overwhelmed but fun sympathetic mom or the dystopic Imperator badass because those narratives are exploring feminity through whiteness.

You may not think Halle Berry is a great actress, but there are many, many actresses have been allowed to coast through their beauty into big-budget roles, given multiple opportunities to succeed, and allowed to be mediocre at best through a variety of roles.

Before The Favourite, I’d never really been a huge fan of Emma Stone as a dramatic actress. I enjoyed her in Easy A and in other comedy films, but when I heard about her in this movie I totally expected her to be the weakest link. Yet she, like her co-stars, really shined, and it reminded me what is so important about getting an opportunity. Having the opportunity to do something no one would expect. Halle Berry is likely never going to get a period drama-comedy type movie like that which will push her, really allow her to showcase her talent in a way that Emma Stone did and that sucks.

Viola Davis is doing well post her Oscar win, but she is also being particular about the roles she is taking. She’s spoken about her regrets about The Help, and with Widows and other films going forward, she is looking to move past the limited expectations of an older dark-skinned Black woman. But Viola does walk on the foundation that Halle Berry helped build—they are only one year apart in age (53 and 52, respectively) and while colorism will always be an issue for them, neither is treated as a romantic lead and neither is allowed to exist fully outside of their boxes unless they fight for it.

For Halle Berry, I’m not shocked that as a young actress trying to sustain herself she took roles that may have been sub-par, wanting to put food on the table, even with an Oscar. For Black actresses, like most actresses, the Oscars are not a promise of things to come. They are an encapsulation of a moment, and just like any moment, it can be forgotten. Halle Berry could be a Tully, an Evil Queen, a CEO, a lover to a Queen, she could be many things if given the opportunity. (Just not Storm, but we love you, Halle).

I am enjoying this era of Halle Berry, action heroine with her upcoming role in John Wick 3, but I’m hoping that someone in Big Little Lies casting realizes that there is one underrated Oscar winner they forgot to scoop up.

Will Disney Develop More Star Wars Shows for Disney+?

Donald Glover is Lando Calrissian in SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY.

Amidst rumors of trailers and rumors of titles, we’re now getting a series of rumors about possible Star Wars shows for Disney+. Recently, the hot thing to do has been to come up with a rumored series that’s being discussed at Lucasfilm, so we now buzz about TV shows for nearly every character under the sun. And while I want a Finn, Poe, and Rose TV show, it’s also time to realize that most of these rumors are probably vague “I heard from a guy who knows a girl who works for Lucasfilm who said…” type things.

Still, some of the show ideas that are being passed around as being in development aren’t bad. A young Leia Organa show sounds like something that would be discussed; it would be a great way to keep Leia’s legacy alive and to explore the roots of a popular character, and wasn’t that the whole point of Solo for Han? However, we’ve covered a lot of young Leia ground with the Claudia Gray book Leia: Princess of Alderaan, so they might skip that one in favor of a different show, as much as I’d love to see young Leia and young Holdo causing mayhem for the Rebellion.

Another rumored idea is Finn, Poe, and Rose either getting their own shows (or one together? It’s very unclear). While I would love more of these characters, it’s unlikely that the cast will be returning so soon after wrapping Episode IX. Unless the series is animated like Star Wars Resistance, which features Poe heavily, the stars might want to move on and find more roles beyond the saga. If they were to draw from sequel characters, it might be a group that hasn’t been explored as much, such as the Knights of Ren (another rumored series).

Lando and Qi’ra from Solo are also being tossed around for possible series, and those I can see a little more. Emilia Clarke is no longer shooting Game of Thrones, and a series in which she’s at the forefront of it all and her arc and growth are not just for Han’s development would be a good way to undo some of the negativity around her character.

Lando could definitely come back for a miniseries exploring him from his origins to nearly up to his appearance in the sequel trilogy so we could have a great look at his character’s growth from Point A to Point B. Plus, he could narrate it and it would be equal parts hilarious and badass.

At this point, the only confirmed shows we know will be on Disney+ are Star Wars: The Clone Wars, The Mandalorian, and the untitled Cassian Andor show. It could be that Disney is holding back on any more streaming announcements until Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, or until the sequel trilogy ends so they can have the full reign to reveal any shows that might contain spoilers.

It’s fun to feed the rumor mill, but take everything with a grain of salt until Lucasfilm lets us know the truth. Also, Lucasfilm, if you’re reading this, please bring back Star Wars Rebels somehow because I need to know what happens to (SPOILER) after the series finale.

Ouch! Jacqueline Jossa’s husband Dan Osborne reveals he’s been left in a sling after painful injury

Poor Dan!

Dan Osborne at National Television Awards, O2, London 25 January 2017

Celebrity Big Brother star Dan Osborne has revealed a nasty-looking injury on Instagram today.

The former TOWIE star is known for his dedication to the gym, even creating his own fitness empire helping to train the likes of Daniel Armstrong and Ferne McCann.

But it looks like 27-year-old Dan might have taken his exercise regime a little too far this time, as he’s now managed to damaged his bicep.

Taking to his social media page, the dad-of-three can be seen sitting in his car with a sling around his neck, next to the caption: ‘Torn bicep,’ and a thumbs up emoji. Ouch!

While the reality star – who shares kids Ella, four, and one-year-old Mia with wife Jacqueline Jossa, as well as five-year-old Teddy from a previous relationship – didn’t specify how he managed to injure himself, we reckon the gym had something to do with it.

Meanwhile, Dan’s latest Insta post comes just days after he celebrated eldest daughter Ella’s fourth birthday with the rest of his family.

Giving a glimpse into the lavish bday bash, former EastEnders star Jacqueline shared a string of videos showing a wall of roses, face painting station and even a giant unicorn cake.

Sharing some behind-the-scenes fun on Instagram, TOWIE star Danielle shared a clip on her Insta Stories of the women tucking into some prosecco.

Wearing matching pink monogramed pj’s, Danielle captioned two images of the slumber party: ‘PJ Party With These Very Special Ladies Who I Adore.

‘Tomorrow we will be getting our kit off, all to raise awareness for Breast Cancer and I couldn’t be happier to be doing this with such amazing brave and strong women’.

Lisa shared the same snaps and added: ‘I believe in fate, and I truly believe meeting these girls have changed my life because each and every one of them have touched my heart.

‘Thank you for such a great experience. I love you all and I really hope we all stay in touch for the rest of my life.’

And it appears to have been a late night as Megan shared her ‘tired eyes’ with a sweet post on her Insta Stories today.

Megan Barton Hanson

‘Tired eyes but so excited for today!!!!!’ she said.

‘I’ve been so shy and awkward about performing, remember school productions, I would always be in the background and now I’m doing a dance on stage at Ally Pally!

‘Maaaaaad, I can’t even keep up at Zumba. It’s all for breast cancer awareness and it’s so important!

Megan Barton Hanson

‘If I can do this, you can def go get your boobies checked by your doctor.’

Also taking part in the event are Benidorm’s Crissy Rock, tennis player Martina Navratilova, EastEnders actress Laurie Brett and Victoria Derbyshire.

The troupe of women will cast their own inhibitions aside to learn a saucy burlesque routine, which ends with them taking their tops off.

A group of male celebrities, including Jack FIncham and Matt Evers, are also stripping off for a dance routine to encourage regular checks for both testicular and prostate cancer.

You won’t BELIEVE how much money Simon Cowell spent on son Eric’s 5th birthday party…

How much!?

‘The X Factor’ TV Show Auditions, London, UK – 06 Jul 2017

Simon Cowell is said to have dropped an obscene amount of money to celebrate his only child’s special day.

According to reports, the X Factor mogul threw a Greatest Showman-themed extravaganza at London’s swanky Mandarin Oriental Hotel over the weekend.


MORESimon Cowell reveals MAJOR shake up to X Factor format after ratings flop: ‘Time for a change’

Guests included Cheryl and her son Bear, Alesha Dixon, Katie Piper and Rochelle and Marvin Humes, and the party is alleged to have set Simon back £30,000.

‘Simon spared no expense in making sure it was the perfect occasion for little Eric,’ an insider told The Sun.

‘The kids got to sing their favourite songs from the film and the whole place was decked out just like the circus.

‘Everyone was joking that Simon was like Hugh Jackman’s character because he was the ringmaster.

‘Loads of celebrities were invited with their families and Eric’s own friends came, too.’

Simon has made no secret of his love of the 2018 film, even dubbing it his ‘favourite movie ever’.

So perhaps it was more of a birthday party for Simon than Eric?

The 59-year-old admits his life has changed for the better since Eric, who he shares with girlfriend Lauren Silverman, came along.

He recently revealed: ‘If you’d have asked five years ago would I have one now, I’d be thinking, “I might have left it a bit late”.

‘But once you’ve had one you think, how could you imagine him not being here?

‘I never thought I could think this way, but you just go, it would be unthinkable to think he wasn’t here.’

Simon even admitted he wouldn’t rule out having another child.

He added: ‘I can’t really think about life before Eric, so yes I would consider another child.’

Dancing On Ice 2019: Vanessa Bauer ‘begged to move into Wes Nelson’s hotel’ – as Megan Barton-Hanson slams pro skater

It’s all kicking off

dancing on ice

In the latest Dancing On Ice drama, apparently professional skater Vanessa Bauer has infuriated her co-stars with her attempts to pursue partner Wes Nelson.

In case you missed it, Love Island finalist Wes, 20, has been caught in a media storm after he was rumoured to be getting cosy with the ice-skating pro while still with ex Megan Barton-Hanson – something which he’s always denied.

And now that he’s single, apparently Vanessa is determined to start up a romance with the reality star – and even asked producers to move her into his hotel.

‘The skaters stay in a different hotel than the celebrities and Vanessa asked if she could be moved to be closer to Wes,’ a source has revealed.

Dancing On Ice

They added: ‘It’s annoyed the others as she’s not hiding her feelings for Wes. Backstage it’s very clear she fancies the pants off him.’

But it looks like 22-year-old Vanessa’s alleged pleas have fallen on deaf ears as the DOI star will continue to stay in a separate hotel to her celeb partner.

Speaking to The Sun, the source added: ‘Wes doesn’t fancy her all, they will never be together.

‘Wes is an intelligent bloke and Vanessa is gorgeous, but he just doesn’t look at her like that.’

Although Vanessa has seemingly hit back at the reports with a very sassy message on Instagram.

Sharing a photo of her and Wes on the ice, she wrote: ‘When you get the highest score of the season so far… So can people focus on our skating. Lol.’

This comes after Wes revealed he will never get with Vanessa following his shock split from Love Island girlfriend Megan, saying she’s ‘not my cup of tea.’

And even Megan, 24, has since agreed the Dancing On Ice professional isn’t Wes’ type.

Speaking to New! magazine, she said: ‘I definitely don’t think anything has happened. From Wes’ history, his type is blondes.’

Megan then went on to blast Vanessa for ‘being cold’, as she continued: ‘As a woman, it would have been so easy for her to reach out, but when we met she was very cold.

‘It was always underlying issues with me and Wes, though. I doubt they’d ever get together – and if they did, it would just be to further their careers.’ Ouch!

She finally added: ‘No break-up is easy. I’m not trying to put on a brave face like, “I’m not hurting, I’ve over it” because I’m not,

‘I haven’t loved anyone as much as I loved Wes.’

Victoria Beckham revealed she was feeling ‘incredibly sad’ today after the passing of fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld.

The German star died in Paris aged 85 after reportedly suffering from pancreatic cancer in recent weeks.

An official statement posted on his Instagram profile said: ‘The House of KARL LAGERFELD shares, with deep emotion and sadness, the passing of its creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, on February 19, 2019, in Paris, France.

‘He was one of the most influential and celebrated designers of the 21st century and an iconic, universal symbol of style. Driven by a phenomenal sense of creativity, Karl was passionate, powerful and intensely curious.

‘He leaves behind an extraordinary legacy as one of the greatest designers of our time, and there are no words to express how much he will be missed.’

Upon hearing the tragic news, Victoria took to Instagram herself to pay tribute to the creative director of Chanel.

Posting a black and white photo of Karl, she captioned it: ‘So incredibly sad to hear this. Karl was a genius and always so kind and generous to me both personally and professionally. RIP 💔x vb’

Actress Diane Kruger shared the same monochrome photo of Karl and revealed she had travelled to France to see him this week.

‘Karl…..I cannot tell you how much you meant to me and how much I will miss you ♥ I will never forget your kindness towards me, your laughs, your imagination ♥’ she wrote.

‘I came to France to see you this week and introduce you to my daughter…I’m heartbroken I was too late ♥ Rest In Peace, I adore you ♥’ the Troy star added.

Singer Lily Allen followed in VB’s footsteps and shared her own post paying tribute to Karl.

‘You made me feel like a princess. I never quite understood what you saw in me but I am forever grateful for the support that you and Chanel have given me over the last 15 years,’ she wrote.

‘Rest In Peace Karl, you were a true genius and will be missed, so much,’ the singer added.

Television presenter Alexa Chung shared her own memories of the German star, and also posted a pic of them together.

She captioned it: ‘Rest in peace, Karl. I remember being so scared to interview you and yet you were in fact incredibly witty and generous.

‘Thank you for inviting me to some of the most glamorous experiences of my life, it was an honour to know you. Oh yeah and thanks for the dry shampoo tip, will always think of you as I powder my wig. ❤

Italian designer, Donatella Versace, was quick to share her condolences and also posted a cherished photo on Instagram.

‘Karl your genius touched the lives of so many, especially Gianni and I. We will never forget your incredible talent and endless inspiration. We were always learning from you,’ the 63-year-old wrote alongside it.

Karl, who was born Karl Otto Lagerfeldt in 1933 in pre-war Germany, is said to have been unwell for several weeks, and had missed a number of fashion shows in Paris last month.

The designer was thought to have been working right up until his death, even directing and passing on instructions to his team about the Fendi AW/19 collection which is due to be shown at Milan Fashion Week this Thursday.

According to the Mail Online, a source said: ‘He hadn’t gone on about his illness, but battled it very bravely.

‘Karl was very proud of his fitness and healthy living, so the pancreatic cancer came as a huge shock.’

Gemma Atkinson DEVASTATED after beloved dog is rushed to the vet after suffering a trauma

Poor Gemma.

Gemma Atkinson received the ‘worst news’ after her pet pooch Norman was rushed to the vet following an accident in the park.

The pregnant actress, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Gorka Marquez, revealed her devastating news in a heartfelt video on Instagram as she cradled the black sproodle in her arms.


MOREGemma Atkinson fans CONVINCED they know the sex of her baby after she finally reveals bare bump

Revealing Norman has hurt a cruciate ligament in his right leg- after having the same injury in his left leg eight months ago – Gemma admitted his pain was made worse because her pregnancy left her unable to pick him up.

Speaking in the video, Gemma said: ‘I had the worst news today. Norman’s other cruciate ligament has gone so he needs to have another operation.

‘I was out in a field with him and he was playing with a husky and he just let out a massive yelp and then lifted his leg up.

‘I felt horrendous because I was on my own with him and because I’m pregnant I couldn’t pick him up. He was leaning on my feet for me to comfort him and I couldn’t. So I felt s***.’

Explaining the situation in a post alongside the video, she said: ‘Here we go again. Thank God for my mum and peter being retired and living 2 minutes away!

‘Another operation almost 8 months after his left cruciate ligament went, his right one has gone.

‘I remember loads of you telling me it was the case with your dogs so I was kinda waiting for it.

‘I’m just sad that I can’t pick him up for snuggles or carry him upstairs to sleep with me in the evening.

‘Genuinely bringing my mattress down stairs when Gorks is on tour so the stairs won’t be an issue,’ she added.

Norman played a big part in announcing Gemma’s pregnancy alongside her and Gorka’s other dog Ollie.

Earlier this month the dogs wore signs around their necks, one read ‘Guess what…mum’s pregnant’ while the other said: ‘We’re going to be big brothers!’

And fans are in for a treat, as the first video is a seven-minute clip which follows her recent trip to New York for the launch of a new fashion collaboration with sportswear brand Reebok.

Taking followers into her room at New York’s The Mark Hotel, she reveals a VERY messy suite complete with unmade bedding, towels on the floor and of course, two huge wardrobes full of designer clothes.

In a sneak peek shared at the debut of her latest fashion collection at London Fashion Week, 44-year-old Victoria was seen telling the camera: ‘You can see why I drive my husband crazy, because he is super-super-tidy.

‘I’m a germophobe, everywhere has got to be super-super-clean. I mean I will disinfect everywhere, but I am a bit messy, what are you going to do?’

As she walks into the bathroom, the former Spice Girls star adds: ‘This would be giving David a panic attack right now, a full-on panic attack.’

The rest of the video also reveals Vic’s drink of choice – which is some very expensive tequila – as well as a sweet insight into her relationship with daughter Harper.

Meanwhile, Victoria – who also shares kids Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 16, and Cruz, 13, with husband David – recently opened up about her exciting new venture which promises beauty tutorials, styling videos and an insight into running her business.

‘When Derek approached me, I thought it would be a great opportunity to educate myself and really understand the platform. The videos are going to be everything from fashion to beauty, and my family will be in there as well.’

The former popstar added: ‘I think you’ll get the opportunity to see the real me: me at work, me with the kids and what it’s like being a working mum.’

We can’t wait!
