Blind Items Revealed #4

February 10, 2020

Oscars

The studio executive's anger was less so directed at this foreign born actress rather than the foreign born actor/talk show host. Several times throughout the night, the executive said, you don't take the check and then slam the movie. Ever.

Rebel Wilson/James Corden

Yeah and you don't f*ck employees but that never stopped a studio exec either.

Both of them would rather slam their face with cheeseburgrs than the stupid movie!

Did you hear that cat euthanasia increased after that movie?

Brayson87 said...

Just kidding, but one could see why people wouldn't want to be reminded of that movie. ;)

Cats had no reason to be made..and it was a huge bomb.

longtimereader said...

Plenty of A list acts worked on bombs and never trashed the production. You notice neither Elba,Swift,Dench etc did.

Maybe he was angry, she made money but he didn't!

I'm glad it bombed. I hate him and I can't stand her.

Brayson87 said...

The movie was so bad that some people acted to protect their own brands. Others just hoped that no one actually saw it and pretend that it never happened.

The Executive is correct!

Pissoff said...

Also don't rape actresses/actors. Ever. Priorities

Amartel said...

The Executive is delusional. The entertainment industry eats its own all the time.

I think there was an Old Hollywood blind about this just last week!

Paul Newman bought an entire page in a Hollywood trade paper to apologize for starring in The Silver Chalice, as it was about to be broadcast.
George Clooney routinely jokes about making Batman and Robin.
That didn't exactly hurt their career.

And the diss by Corden and Wilson wasn't something they came up with. They didn't bring their costume to the event. The producers for the ceremony approved the sketch, and the gist of it (that lousy special effects that weren't finalized in time made Cats such a disaster) was actually in line with what the director and the studio executives were already claiming.
Actually, the Visual Effects (VFX) Society was the one that complained about the routine and wrote to the Academy (not to Corden and Wilson, because they're not idiots like the guy who put together this fake story). “The best visual effects in the world will not compensate for a story told badly.”

Besides, if it's the same executive who greenlit both Cats and Dolittle, they must have more pressing issues today than bitching about two comedians.

On the contrary...

"If you can't eat their food, drink their booze, screw their women and then vote against them you've got no business being up here."

Since the beginning, I had never heard of James Corden and wondered where he came from. Then, I noticed him in some very bit parts (background, really) of movies and shows. Still had no idea of how he landed with his own show in late night... I enjoyed his carpool karaoke back when it was more about showcasing the singer's talent and less about how many songs and words to songs and how well JC can sing... Anyways, late to the party here as well in that I have found and quickly become addicted to The Graham Norton Show and can watch it endlessly on youtube! I understand now where JC got the 'idea' of having all the celebs on one couch at one time... this totally WORKS for GN.... but fails miserably for JC - but GN does not try to inject himself into every answer or conversation like JC does and GN laughs along with the audience at the celeb's comments - and doesn't try to 'tell a better joke' / get a bigger laugh, etc. So, it's more enjoyable to watch Stephen Colbert then switch channels to Seth Meyers late nights here in the Midwest and binge watch GN whenever on YT!!! JC can go away any time... (so can Jimmy Fallon!)

@Jeweled, It was part of a cold war with the Brits. They dumped James Corden on us so we dumped Meghan Markle on them.

Guesser said...

@Brayson87,but Meghan is almost back does that mean Corden is going home?😁

Unknown said...

Hey, kswheels, if you are going to quote my former Boss, please give him credit.

+1 Jeweled Skye
I just came here for a Flashy Vic comment! When ever that fat manatee Cordon shows up in a Blind (and with Rebel Wilson, but not in a KY Jelly wrestling match), it's going to be funny.

BRAD PITT said...

October 2017 James Corden thinks sexually abusing people is funny

only a sex offender would joke about Weinstein like he did

kswheels said...

@Unknown, you aren't 2-- years old. Your former boss didn't write that line.
