In case you were wondering, with an overwhelming majority, the winner of Fug Nation’s Best of the Met Gala, with a landslide 37% of the vote is…
Claire Danes! Make sure you see her entire light-up dress, if you missed it somehow. As for worst?
Lots of accolades have been slung the way of the performers in Hamilton, but let’s also give a hearty cheer for the people who cast the show. Like, the whole group who participated in finding these actors, auditioning them, matching them to the right roles… Lin knew a lot of them from out and about, including Daveed, but still. A lot of smart people did a lot of smart work here to put the correct parts in the hands of the correct souls. I don’t think Lafayette/Jefferson would be what they are if anyone else had been nurturing them.
The other day, we were talking about the Bitch Eating Crackers phenomenon, which is — in short — the concept that once you dislike someone, everything they do is enraging and terrible. I am sad to say that I might feel this for Julia Roberts. Because my reaction to her clutching Clooney and laughing (which is a totally normal thing to do in the presence of Clooney, the world’s worst intern) is, “ugh, Julia, we get it.” I might be irrational about her.
THAT SAID: Although she looked wacky at this morning’s photocall, she looked REALLY good on the red carpet for Money Monster, and Amal seems to like her, so I should really probably drag my ladder out of the garage and use it to get over myself. Let’s discuss.

Cannes is just the best. So many gowns!
I am up and down on this thing like a see-saw.
Nice Heather loves the color and the delicate tiered ruffles, and the fact that Naomi Watts always brings an INTENSE necklace game to these things. Cranky Heather is concerned the sparkles look like bits of shrapnel from an EXTREMELY expensive explosion.
These two — otherwise, rather strange bedfellows — are starring in the Woody Allen movie Cafe Society, which was the opening film at Cannes. I have created an entire story in my mind about how they were primed to hate one another, but Blake’s cake-pop-baking enthusiasm won Kristen over, and Kristen’s wry slouchiness gave Blake a little edge, and they ended up being fast friends who had a lot of fevered conversations about whether or not they regret working with Woody Allen.

“You think I could just pin this thing and blow us outta here straight to Las Vegas?”
“No way, mate. People haven’t been this happy to see me since Les Miserables!”
“Yes, Les Miserables!”
“I don’t think…”
“LES MISERABLES, I TELL YOU.”
