    Harry Potter’s and Peaky Blinders’s actress Helen McCrory has passed away from cancer at 52. So incredibly sad.
    ALSO: Totally pretending to be surprised at Anne giving her 110% and Franco doing the bare minimum, only for her to get hatred for being annoying vs. him getting a slap on the wrist for being quite literally an abuser.

  2. Boxy Lady says:

    I remember that Oscars. Franco was into until he came out in the dress, which was fairly early in the show. He actually seemed to have fun dressed as a woman, matter of fact. After the dress came off, he was over it and Anne had to do all the work.

    Helen was amazing in Penny Dreadful. RIP.

    • lolalola3 says:

      She was! She was my favorite character. She did an amazing job. So steely, strong and terrifying. Loved her. What a sad, sad day.

  4. Tiffany says:

    Anne did her job, point blank.

    Franco was just a jerk and did not have one level of professionalism.

    I never looked at him the same after that and Anne’s rep for ‘overeagerness’ started and SHE started to become a punchline and from then on I would ride or die for her because that crap was unfair and 10 years later my opinion has not changed.

      Let’s just imagine how bad it would have gone if Anne weren’t a professional, who carried the entire broadcast. Or not, let’s stop making men the focus of the world, and recognize that Anne did her job, point blank. Spectacularly.

    • Keroppi says:

      I hate that people hated on her for doing her job and his! He threw her to the wolves!

  5. Merricat says:

    James Franco is despicable.

  6. K says:

    Helen was an amazing actress and so beautiful and young. I hope Damian and the kids can find some peace.

    I’ve NEVER watched but your title had me LOL.

  8. Mle428 says:

    Ugh. The worst part of lip injections is when they’re fresh and haven’t settled.

  9. Go Natural says:

    Wasn’t this the 2021 Oscars (not 2011)??

  10. Christine says:

    I promise, on my life, that I will never speak of it again, but I need to say one final thing!

    Anne Hathaway was the only bright spot, and she really gave it her all. And then she gave more. Who the eff cares about whatever, Anne Hathaway is a champion.

  11. Gk says:

    More disturbing to me are the allegations about Franco and his enablers, including Seth Roger. I support Charlene Yi and the others abused by Franco.

  12. Sunnydaze says:

    I love the one quote about that whole debacle one if the writers gave, something akin to “one showed up ready to win a grand slam and one showed up ready to hit a few balls”

  13. Ang says:

    OMG William and Harry certainly put the kibosh on our lovely gossip by strolling out of the funeral together chatty chatting away!!!!

  14. Yolanda says:

    I have to admit sometimes I feel slightly annoyed by seeing anne try too hard to be funny on talk shows.
    But she really did nothing to deserve that kind of hatred years ago.
    And in this case,james Franco is always the one who’s annoyingly thinks himself can be effortlessly funny (which he isn’t)and basically just a selfish trash.

  15. SomeChick says:

    what, no live post of the funeral?

    (am I the only one who’s glad it’s over?)

  16. Mandy Purr says:

    Pretty sure Jessica Simpson got a lip flip which is why they look so, let’s say, different.

  17. Stacy Dresden says:

    RIP Helen McCrory
