Joaquin Phoenix Ditched SAG Awards After Party For Slaughterhouse Vigil

On Sunday night, Joaquin Phoenix won “Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role in a Motion Picture” at the SAG Awards for his performance in Joker. He also snagged “Best Actor” at the Golden Globes, but he doesn’t seem to be too focused on himself amid all this award season praise.

After making a brief appearance at a SAG Award after party on Sunday night, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Phoenix left to attend a vigil for pigs at a nearby slaughterhouse. The actor joined the activist group, Los Angeles Animal Save, outside the Farmer John processing plant in Vernon, California, which is located less than five miles outside Los Angeles. The vigil entailed giving water and support to the pigs before they are sent to their deaths. Videos show Phoenix, still dressed in his tux, going up to the trailer that contains the pigs to bear witness to their plight.

According to TMZ, Farmer John allows for the trailer to be parked for two minutes twice a week – on Wednesdays and Sundays – to facilitate these vigils. The founder Los Angeles Animal Save, Amy Jean Davis, detailed that this isn’t the first time Phoenix has come to pay his respects to the pigs. “Joaquin’s regular attendance at our vigils in L.A. has inspired activists both locally and globally,” Davis said. “We are so grateful for his voice. All over the world, activists are bearing witness to animals bound for slaughter and waking up the world to their plight.”

Joaquin Phoenix Pays Tribute To Heath Ledger In SAG Awards Acceptance Speech

Sunday evening, Joaquin Phoenix took home the SAG Award for Best Actor for his role in Joker and as he accepted the prize, the seasoned actor used his platform as an opportunity to honor the other actors hosted in the same category while also paying homage to the Joker before him.

“I’m standing here on the shoulders my favorite actor, Heath Ledger,” he would say to begin his speech.

He went on to highlight the talent fellow m=nominees such as Leonardo DiCaprio, who was up for his lead role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

“There would always be two other guys that I was up against and we’d always lose to this one kid,” Phoneix reflected. “No actor would ever say his name because it was too much, but every casting director would always whisper, ‘It’s Leonardo’ …] You’ve been an inspiration for over 25 years to me and so many people, Thank you very much.”

He moved on by directing his attention to Christian Bale who starred opposite Ledger during his era as Batman. Sunday night, he was nominated for Best Actor for his performance in Ford v Ferrari. “You commit to your roles in ways that I can only dream …] It’s infuriating. I wish you would, one time, just suck once.”

In the end, he would also take the time to congratulate and give proper to relative newcomers found in Adam Driver and Taron Egerton who were both nominated for their roles in Marriage Story and Rocketman, respectively.

“I’ve been watching you the last few years and you’ve been turning in these beautiful, nuanced, incredible, pround performances,” he said to Driver. “I’m just so moved by you …] you should be here.”

He concluded: “Taron …] you’re so beautiful in this movie and I’m so happy for you, and I can’t wait to see what else you do.”

Wendy Williams’ Violent Comments About Lori Harvey & Future Earn Backlash

Wendy Williams has a history sending major shade Future‘s way. The talk show host loves to stir the pot, using her Hot Topics segment to spill some scathing hot tea about anything controversial happening in music, entertainment, and pop culture. She seemingly has something against Atlanta rapper Future, using him as an example and warning women not to hang with men like him. She even went so far as to create a “baby mama chart” detailing all the women he’s had children with, including Joie Chavis, Ciara, and others. Now that his relationship with Lori Harvey has been confirmed, Wendy Williams is back at it and she did not hold back.

Wendy Williams' Violent Comments About Lori Harvey & Future Earn Backlash

According to Bossip, Joaquin Phoenix wasn’t the only person she inappropriately attached on her show this week. She’s been earning tons backlash for making fun the actor’s cleft palate and, in addition to that, she’s also getting heat for criticizing Lori Harvey’s parents Steve and Marjorie. Speaking about Future’s new girlfriend, she said:

“He has eight kids with four different baby moms! If this was my daughter at 23, I would break her neck, crack her skull and throw her down the steps. And, you’re not the boss your kids when they’re 23-years-old. Lori, what’re you doing? Girl, everyone talks about you … You’re so pretty, you don’t have to be that girl!”

Wait… what? You would break her neck and throw her down the stairs? Isn’t that a little much, Wendy? People are understandably upset at her comments and are urging her to apologize but, knowing Wendy, she’ll probably end up sweeping this under the rug.

Kanye West To Headline Evangelical Event For Group Known For Anti-LGBT Views

Throughout his career, Kanye West has taken on many identity and personality changes. His most recent transformation has come in the form a religious reawakening that has him vowing to never make secular music for the remainder his career. The “Jesus Walks” rapper’s all-inclusive Sunday Service gatherings have united many as Ye and his fellowship have made stops around the country, but it looks like Kanye’s most recent booking for the Awaken 2020 Evangelical event in Phoenix, AZ is going to rub some patrons and activists the wrong way as the group who organized the event is known for their anti-LGBTQ rhetoric. 

Information obtained by The New York Daily News has revealed that the event will feature several headliners that are known for their anti-LGBTQ beliefs. Some these evangelical personalities include Cindy Jacobs, a self-proclaimed ‘prophet’ who publicly encouraged the Christian community to combat the Equality Act, Guillermo Maldonado, a Miami-based pastor who believes homouality is a ‘generational curse,’ Ché Ahn, the president Harvest International Ministry who has previously compared gay rights laws to racist legislation, and lastly, Lou Engle, a senior leader the International House Prayer who believes Nazism is kindled by homouality.  

If Kanye West is aware the rhetoric spread by his co-headliners, he’ll definitely have some explaining to do if he decides to go through with his participation in the religious event. A number Twitter users have already expressed their disdain for Kanye agreeing to headline Awaken 2020. 

As right now, the Jesus is King curator is set to take the stage at Awaken 2020 at the Sun Devil Stadium in Phoenix, AZ this Saturday, Jan. 18, free charge. Kanye West will be speaking to those in attendance as well as performing alongside his Sunday Service choir.

Wendy Williams Under Fire For Mocking Joaquin Phoenix’s Cleft Palate

Wendy Williams is catching some heat for making comments about Joaquin Phoenix‘s cleft palate on a recent episode her daytime television talk show, The Wendy Williams Show. This particular episode aired on Jan. 7 during Wendy’s ‘Hot Topics’ segment where she came to Beyonce’s defense for refusing to stand during the announcement  Phoenix’s Golden Globes Best Actor Award acceptance speech. 

In the segment, Williams jokingly teases Phoenix about his condition stating, “When he shaves f his mustache he’s got a hairline fracture,” she said. “He’s got one those — what do you call it? Cleft lip, cleft palate.”

Williams followed up her comment by hooking her finger over her top lip in order to imitate the somewhat common birth defect. Now, nearly a week later, fans and activists are making an uproar about Williams’ taunting comments that affect children around the globe. 

British celebrity, Carol Vorderman, 59, who also happens to be an ambassador for the Cleft Lip and Palate Association, Tweeted out her disdain for Williams’ comments saying, “I really am disgusted by this @wendywilliams.. Mimicking a cleft lip, and making a joke about it, is disgraceful. Have you any idea the pain and operations a child with cleft must go through as they grow?”

While the Joker star has never formally addressed his cleft lip scar, it’s more than likely not an ailment for the award-winning actor who is currently celebrating the success as his role as one Batman‘s nemeses. Check out the segment where Wendy Williams goes in on Joaquin Phoenix’s cleft lip at the 11:15 mark in the video provided below. 

Stephen A. Smith Proposes Ridiculous Kyle Kuzma Lakers Trade

Stephen A. Smith has been known to dole out his fair share hot takes although, on Tuesday, he came through with a truly head-scratching proposal. During a segment on First Take, the panel was talking about what the Lakers would need to do in order to get to the next level and eventually become a bonafide championship contender. Smith said the Lakers would need to make a trade for a sharpshooter and that they should be looking towards the Phoenix Suns.

Smith decided the Lakers should trade young star Kyle Kuzma and a first-round pick in exchange for Devin Booker. Yes, the exact same Devin Booker with multiple 50-point games and the weight an entire franchise on his shoulders. Needless to say, Smith’s idea was certainly a shocking one.

Fans couldn’t believe what they were hearing and immediately reacted with “stay f the weed” jokes. Eventually, Smith had a Q & A later that day and one fan decided to step up and ask Smith about his recent proposal. Smith simply explained that he was creating hypothetical scenarios and that he doesn’t expect such a deal to actually take place.

Based on this latest trade proposal, it doesn’t seem like Smith will be an NBA general manager anytime soon although we’re sure he’d rather continue his role as an analyst anyway.

"Joker" Joins "Black Panther" In Historical Oscar Feat For Best Picture

Joker was undoubtedly one 2019’s most anticipated movies that received a ton backlash and praise, simultaneously. The controversy surrounding the film perhaps overhyped it a tad but most people agreed that Joaquin Phoenix’s performance was outstanding, maybe even one the best performances the year.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that it secured eleven nominations at the Oscars; leading the award show with the most nods. Todd Phillips was nominated for Best Director and Joaquin Phoenix received a nod for Best Actor. It was also nominated for Best Picture which now makes it the second comic book film to secure such nomination. Joker now joins Black Panther as the only two comic book films to earn Oscar nods for Best Picture. Joker also marks the first DC Comic character to get a nomination for Best Picture. 

Although we won’t be able to know if Joker actually takes home Best Picture, it did take home a few Golden Globe Awards. Joaquin Phoenix’s take on Arthur Fleck got him an award for Best Actor which could be a telling sign what to expect at the Oscar’s. After all, the voting for the Oscars typically ends a few days after the Golden Globes.

Do you think Joker will take home Best Picture? Sound f with your thoughts in the comments. 

The Complete 2020 Oscar Nominations Have Arrived

It’s about that time. With the big night set to take place on Sunday, February 9th, the 2020 Academy Award Nominations have arrived in full. For anybody keeping track, you’ll likely find little in the way surprise, with many similarities ten seen between the Golden Globes and the Critics Choice Awards. Still, there’s always excitement in the speculation process, even if the surprises are few and far between. 

The Complete 2020 Oscar Nominations Have Arrived

While genre fans might be sent away licking their wounds (especially fans  MIDSOMMAR and THE LIGHTHOUSE), the list is stacked with strong contenders all the same. Scarlett Johannessen laid down a massive power move with two Best Actress nominations, while favorite Joaquin Phoenix seems destined to lock horns with A Marriage Story’s Adam Driver. The race for Best Picture seems a little more wide open, though a gambler might be wise to lay a few dollars on Sam Mendes’ 1917.

Jay-Z & Beyoncé Send Reese Witherspoon Case Of Ace Of Spades After Golden Globes

The Golden Globes on Sunday made for a star-studded event full entertaining and scandalous moments, but the most shocking appearance all would have to be music’s biggest power couple. That’s right, Jay-Z and Beyoncé decided to grace Hollywood’s finest with their presence, overwhelming plenty the stars in attendance.

Though their attendance was not completely out the blue, since Bey was nominated for Best Original Song for “Spirit” from The Lion King, though she eventually lost to “I’m Gonna Love Me Again” from Rocketman. The duo didn’t walk the red carpet, though, so they caught everyone f guard when they arrived fashionably late. They waited to take their seats until after Kate McKinnon had finished her speech introducing Carol Burnett Award for Achievement in Television recipient, Ellen Degeneres, who was at Jayoncé’s table. It was then that they were caught red-handed bringing their own Ace Spades champagne into the Moet-sponsored event, as their bodyguard, Julius, was spotted holding two bottles the bubbly brand.

Bey and Jay not only brought their own booze, they also shared it with the surrounding guests, as well. Jennifer Anniston revealed on her Instagram story from the Globes that after her table had run out water, her The Morning Show co-star Reese Witherspoon asked Jay and Bey for some their champagne. Jay and Bey were happy to, and Reese even joked about the whole ordeal with some memes on her Instagram.

After word spread about the Bey and Jay’s charitable move, the superstar couple naturally had to one-up themselves, so they sent over an entire case Ace Spades to Reese. The actress posted a video herself opening up the generous gift, accompanied by some gorgeous flowers and a note that read, “More water, from Jay and Bey.” 

Reese and her mom, Betty, proceeded to pop open one the prestigious bottles at 11:30am. “Who cares?” Reese replied when Betty asked if it’s too early to drink. “It’s from Jay-Z and Beyoncé.” Solid logic.

Joaquin Phoenix Detained At Jane Fonda’s Climate Protest Following Golden Globes Win

Jane Fonda has been holding her weekly climate change protests called “Fire Drill Fridays” for several months now, and this Friday, she was joined by a recent Golden-Globe winner. Joaquin Phoenix marched with Jane in D.C. along with fellow protesters, including actor and long-time political protester, Martin Sheen, and actress Maggie Gyllenhaal. These environmental protests are held every week in an effort to fight climate change by demanding fast action on a Green New Deal. During this week’s protest, attendees are specifically calling for an end to all new fossil fuel exploration/extraction and demanding a halt on granting taxpayer subsidies to oil companies. Joaquin, Jane, Martin, and tons other protesters were detained after cops warned them that arrests are imminent if they don’t cooperate and disperse.

In the clip, protestors can be seen holding up signs and chanting, “If we don’t get it, shut it down!” followed by “What do we want? Climate justice. When do we want it? Now!” The video then cuts to Joaquin getting detained as supporters cheer him on from afar.

Before his detainment, Joaquin took the podium to warn others about the effects that the meat and dairy industries have on the environment.  “Something that I think isn’t ten times talked about in the environmental movement or in the conversation about climate change is that the meat and dairy industry is the third leading cause climate change” he declared. This statement was met with applause from the crowd, after which he continued, “I think sometimes, we wonder, ‘what can we do in this fight against climate change?’ There’s something that you can do today, right now, and tomorrow, by making a choice about what you consume.” Martin Sheen, who has been arrested over 70 times for his own protesting efforts, followed Joaquin, giving a powerful speech complete with poetic metaphors.

On Sunday, Joaquin won the Golden Globe for “Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama,” for the titular role in the film, Joker. In his speech, he mirrored similar sentiments about environmental change, by giving a shoutout to the Hollywood Foreign Press “for recognizing and acknowledging the link between animal agriculture and change” by making the meals at the ceremony plant-based.  He also addressed the wildfires in Australia and called on his peers to take action. “It’s really nice that so many people have come up and sent their well wishes to Australia but we have to do more than that,” he said in his speech. “Hopefully we can be unified and make some changes. It’s great to vote, but sometimes we have to take that responsibility on ourselves and make changes and sacrifices in our own lives.” 

Cardi B Calls Donald Trump A "Terrorist" While Watching Iran Crisis News

Cardi B, who is no stranger to criticizing Donald Trump, has lambasted him once again. The Atlantic Records artist labeled the president a “terrorist” on Instagram after watching a Nightline report about the United States and Iran crisis.

In her social media post, Cardi shared a clip of an Iranian man crying while speaking to a reporter. When asked what message he had for Americans, the man replied, “We love Americans, but we hate your president.”

“Voice of Iranians,” Cardi wrote in her caption. “They not terrorist.Trump is .”

Tensions between the U.S. and Iran have escalated after a U.S. drone strike killed General Qassem Soleimani, the leader of the country’s Quds Force, on January 3. Days later, Iran responded by pulling out of commitments from a 2015 nuclear deal.

On Tuesday (January 7), Iran launched missile strikes on two Iraqi bases housing U.S. forces. Trump said there were no American casualties and claimed Iran was “standing down” on Wednesday (January 8).

Trump justified ordering an airstrike against Soleimani due to there allegedly being an imminent threat. Doubts over the justification have emerged since Soleimani’s death. Former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush both declined opportunities to kill the general during their respective tenures in office due to concerns over the aftermath.

Even if you haven’t seen Todd Phillips’ Joker, you’re likely familiar with the scene because it was abundantly shared online and became the most iconic movie moments 2019. You can find several Twitter accounts dedicated to dubbing different songs over the clip The Joker dancing down a set stairs that is actually located in The Bronx. 

When Joker fanatics and people in search a solid social media post discovered that they could visit these 132 steps for free on West 167th Street, they flocked there.

Out sympathy for those affected, Burger King is fering residents The Bronx free whoppers through Uber Eats when they use the code “KINGSTAIRS”. Ordering fast food on Uber Eats is usually attended by a feeling deep remorse, but it’s easier to justify when you only have to pay the delivery fee. In a rather counter-intuitive move, Burger King brought a crew to the “Joker Stairs” to shoot an ad for this free whopper campaign. You could see THE Burger King dancing down the steps below.  

In other Joker news, Todd Phillips claimed he is open to directing a sequel
