Ghost in the Shell, which is based on a Japanese manga series, has been surrounded by whitewashing controversy and so I expected it to be rubbish, like most films mixed up in that kind of backlash, and I lost even more hope when reviews were banned from publication until very close to release. I don’t know if it’s cos of my low expectations or what, but I actually really enjoyed it.
I always seem to hear about filming taking place in London afterwards and I always kick myself because I love to go down and watch. Thankfully, this wasn’t the case with the new currently-untitled Paul Thomas Anderson project as I saw on Twitter on Tuesday that they were filming and they were still there today. Here’s what I saw:
Last night it was the Kong: Skull Island European premiere in London’s Leicester Square and I braved the freezing cold and the pouring rain to see Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and more.
On Friday night, the stars of Logan came out in Germany for the Berlin International Film Festival. I went on holiday to Berlin at the same time as the festival and managed to catch all the red carpet action!
Last night it was the Grammys awards, which is one of my favourite red carpet events because celebs dress bolder. The dress code doesn’t seem to be as serious and formal as the Oscars for example and celebs tend to have more fun – and there were certainly some interesting choices!
Tonight it was the BAFTAs and I was there, at the winners’ press conference which meant all the prize winners came down to chat to us and I took the opportunity to take plenty of pics of stars like Emma Stone, Tom Holland, Viola Davis and Dev Patel.
I must admit, I used to really like Tom Hiddleston. In fact, I had a rather large crush on him but that has fallen away bit by bit in the space of the last year because he’s just made himself look like a fool, time and time again. And every time he tries to make it better, he actually makes it worse. He needs to know when to shut up.
In case you have been living in a hole, let me fill you in: Lady Gaga performed at the Super Bowl Halftime Show last night and she didn’t disappoint. I have been a fan of hers since the beginning but I haven’t loved her musical output so much in recent years and I was hoping she would eventually do something to come back on top and she has!! Her performance is definitely my favourite since Beyonce’s in 2013.
