Don Cheadle Just Revealed On Twitter What Trump Called Black Women While Golfing — HelloBeautiful

It’s no secret that Don Cheadle has never been a fan of Donald Trump—and he recently took to Twitter to blow up the president’s spot even more after being targeted by Trump supporters.

On Saturday night, the Oscar-nominated actor, who has called #45 a “POS” in the past, explained why he can’t stand Trump so much. According to Cheadle, his friend’s father was playing golf with Trump before he was elected and witnessed him call African-American women the “N-word.”

All the celeb fashion you should behold from the Oscars red carpet — Metro

In case you managed to miss this important bit of information (perhaps you were distracted by the equally important British Kebab Awards. We get it.), tonight, 26 February, is the Academy Awards, AKA the Oscars. We’re all very excited to find out the big winners, obviously. We need to know if La La Land will continue to be hyped for all eternity.

But more importantly: fashion.

The Oscars red carpet, if you didn’t know, is a big deal. We shall desperately wait to see each look and marvel at their brilliance.

Here’s Who Will Win at the 2017 Oscars — TIME

Let’s start this Oscar predictions party with the concession that to rank wildly different works of art is—unlike, say, the 100-meter dash—a rather futile exercise in subjectivity. But as long as the Academy keeps doing it, we’ll do it too, because it’s fun, and it’s the only sport some of us know enough about to to weigh in on. Without further ado, here’s who you’re likely to see clutching gold come Feb. 26, and a few ideas about who should be up there in their stead.

Best Picture

Arrival | Fences | Hacksaw Ridge | Hell Or High Water | Hidden Figures | La La Land | Lion | Manchester By The Sea | Moonlight

La La Land is destined to surf on a SoCal sunbeam to the night’s top honors —for a record-tying 14 nominations not to translate into a Best Picture win would be the shock of the evening. But its victory would come at the oversight of Moonlight, whose vivid, heartbreaking coming-of-age story not only deserves the award on its merits, but means something particularly special given the dearth of stories about characters like its protagonist, Chiron. As director Barry Jenkins recently told TIME, “When images do arise to fill that lack, they take on added importance.”

Actor in a Leading Role

Casey Affleck

Casey Affleck (Manchester By The Sea) | Andrew Garfield (Hacksaw Ridge) | Ryan Gosling (La La Land) | Viggo Mortensen (Captain Fantastic) | Denzel Washington (Fences)

Casey Affleck has won nearly every award there is to win for his emotionally arresting performance as a Massachusetts janitor who becomes his nephew’s guardian. But there are some who believe his controversial past —sexual harassment allegations settled in 2010—should give voters pause in awarding him the industry’s highest honor. Denzel Washington, a two-time Oscar winner who is self-directed in Fences, could pull off a surprise victory.

Emma Stone

Lionsgate

Actress in a Leading Role

Isabelle Huppert (Elle) | Ruth Negga (Loving) | Natalie Portman (Jackie) | Emma Stone (La La Land) | Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins)

Two years after her nomination for Birdman, Emma Stone’s raspy-voiced, fleet-footed aspiring actress (the movie version, that is) has charmed the pants off of Hollywood. But if anyone can pull out an upset, it’s Isabelle Huppert. Captivating in Elle as a rape survivor who seeks revenge on her assailant, the French actress finally has a chance to get her due with American audiences and round out her international awards collection (she already has a BAFTA, a César and several Lumières —which are basically French Golden Globes).

Moonlight

David Bornfriend-A24

Actor in a Supporting Role

Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) | Jeff Bridges (Hell Or High Water) | Lucas Hedges (Manchester By The Sea) | Dev Patel (Lion) | Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals)

Ali imbues his character, Juan, with a paternal tenderness rarely seen in Hollywood’s imagined drug dealers . Though he only appears in the first of the film’s three chapters, his presence looms large even after his screen time ends. Coming off of wins at the Golden Globes and SAG Awards, he has the momentum to cap off awards season with the biggest one of all and at last become a household name.

Viola Davis

Paramount Pictures

Actress in a Supporting Role

Viola Davis (Fences) | Naomie Harris (Moonlight) | Nicole Kidman (Lion) | Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures) | Michelle Williams (Manchester By The Sea)

After a somewhat controversial decision to campaign Davis in the supporting category —many view her turn as Rose Maxson in Fences as a leading one—she has been unstoppable on the awards path. She’s swept at the BAFTAs, Golden Globes, Critics Choice and SAG Awards, not to mention the Tony she won for playing the same role for the 2010 Broadway revival of the August Wilson play. It’s Davis’ year, and as good as some of her fellow nominees’ performances were, they may as well skip the just-in-case speechwriting.

Directing

Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) | Mel Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge) | Damien Chazelle (La La Land) | Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester By The Sea) | Barry Jenkins (Moonlight)

La La Land recently won Best Feature at the Directors Guild Awards, an honor that has correlated with a Best Director Oscar win, according to FiveThirtyEight, 21 out of the past 25 years. The undeflatable hype over the musical feels like a tribute to its wunderkind director —who, at 32, is not exactly a child prodigy, but stands to tie the record for youngest Best Director ever, which has stood since Norman Taurog won in 1932.

Kenneth Lonergan

Writing (Original Screenplay)

Hell or High Water (Taylor Sheridan) | La La Land (Damien Chazelle) | The Lobster (Yorgos Lanthimos, Epthimis Filippou) | Manchester By the Sea (Kenneth Lonergan) | 20th Century Women (Mike Mills)

Though La La Land could certainly steamroll through this category and Taylor Sheridan could sneak out a surprise win, Kenneth Lonergan is the favorite here for the achingly beautiful story he tells in Manchester by the Sea. Lonergan’s characters talk like real people talk —in some cases, as with Casey Affleck’s taciturn janitor, as though spitting out the honest truth might just kill them, and in others, like Michelle Williams’ grieving ex-wife, as though it’s the only thing keeping them alive. After Affleck’s Best Actor nomination, this is the film’s next most likely win.

Writing (Adapted Screenplay)

Arrival (Eric Heisserer) | Fences (August Wilson) | Hidden Figures (Allison Schroeder, Theodore Melfi) | Lion (Luke Davies) | Moonlight (Barry Jenkins, Tarell Alvin McCraney)

This is a particularly competitive category: On the one hand, it may be Arrival’s best shot at taking home a little gold man. On the other, it’s a chance for the Academy to posthumously honor Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson. But Barry Jenkins and Tarell Alvin McCraney are poised to collect some of the recognition Moonlight deserves, for the semi-autobiographical, unproduced short play McCraney wrote and Jenkins’ adaptation of it. Though much of Moonlight’s storytelling is in its visuals, and its protagonist is far from garrulous, what words he does speak don’t quickly fade from memory.

Zootopia

Disney

Animated Feature Film

Kubo and the Two Strings | Moana | My Life as a Zucchini | The Red Turtle | Zootopia

Zootopia has been widely celebrated since its release last March for transcending the typical Disney message (“Everyone hold hands, kumbaya”) and injecting a children’s movie with smart, subtle commentary on topics like racial profiling and tokenism. All this, while managing to be fun and spritely and entertaining. Its total domination, unfortunately, overshadows the gorgeous stop-motion-animated Kubo and the Two Strings, which also refuses to talk down to pint-sized audiences, delivering a complex story about grief and loss.

Toni Erdmann

Sony Pictures Classics

Foreign Language Film

Land of Mine | A Man Called Ove | The Salesman | Tanna | Toni Erdmann

This category became the subject of unusual attention when the director of Iranian entry The Salesman, Oscar winner Asghar Farhadi, announced that he wouldn’t attend the ceremony due to Trump’s executive order restricting entry of travelers from seven countries, including Iran. And while outrage around the order may boost that movie’s profile, the award here is more likely to go to Maren Ade’s German comedy about a father using all sorts of tactics (most memorably a wig and a set of false teeth) to reconnect with his overworked consultant daughter. It’s so beloved that Paramount is rumored to be making an American adaptation, starring Jack Nicholson and Kristen Wiig.

OJ: Made in America

ESPN Films

Best Documentary Feature

Fire at Sea | I Am Not Your Negro | Life, Animated | OJ: Made in America | 13th

This is one of those fields that makes you wish they could just make an exception and give everyone a trophy, particularly given the important boost docs can get from awards recognition. Though there’s discussion as to whether a brief qualifying theatrical run qualifies Ezra Edelman’s eight-hour ESPN program as a movie, there’s little debate as to its value as a treatise on race and celebrity in America as told through Simpson’s life. But between Ava DuVernay’s look at mass incarceration in 13th, Raoul Peck’s resuscitation of James Baldwin in I Am Not Your Negro, and Fire at Sea’s glimpse into the European migrant crisis, the entire category has rarely felt so urgent.

Mary Tyler Moore Remembered

Actor Dick Van Dyke took to Twitter on Wednesday night to mourn the loss of his famous co-star, Mary Tyler Moore.

In the latest attack on the millions of women who not only marched on Washington, Saturday, but marched across the globe for human rights, those against the march are insisting that billionaire George Soros sponsored 50 groups who attended the march. Although the march was originally the idea of Hawaiian grandmother, Teresa Shook. Shook was not a beneficiary of Soros. No, she a woman who wrote on her Facebook page that women need to do something to show the new administration that will fight to keep the rights they already have and they will fight for those whose rights are endangered.

 

The latest attack on the millions of women who marched across the globe is yet another attempt to undermine the effects by ordinary Americans, women, to plead for change. Apparently, women weren’t smart enough to devise a way to have their voices heard. There had to be some great conspiracy that led those poor stupid women to march against the violation of civil rights.

 

The first attempt to demean the march was to link the march to Hamas and to being an Anti-Semantic. Linda Sarsour, who it the Executive Director of the Arab American Association of New York. Sarsour is a divisive woman who was the driving force for New York City schools to add days off for Muslim holidays and also sat on the board for the Women’s March on Washington. Sarsour role was to fight the proposed Muslim registry that members of the Trump administration have lauded as being constitutionals.  Sarsour did not speak for all members of the march. She advocated for what many believe is a ban that reminds many of what the government did to Japanese American citizens in World War II. The march’s platform called for an end to that type of bigotry.

 

In the platform that the Women’s March on Washington released, it was stated that “The Women’s March on Washington aims to send a message to all levels of government, including but not limited to the incoming Presidential administration, that we stand together in solidarity and we expect elected leaders to act to protect the rights of women, their families and their communities.” Women around the globe used that platform to create their own reasoning for their marches such as the right to education, to clean water, to healthcare and to equal civil rights.

 

The right is also pushing the theory that he march was orchestrated by billionaire George Soros to show the world that President Trump is weak and does not represent the majority of Americans in the U.S. There is evidence that points to Soros sponsoring 50 groups out of the thousands. There were sister groups of the event that marched in cities across the nation. Alt-right publications have stated that Soros funded the demonstration. There is no proof that Soros wrote checks directly to fund the march but he has supported many groups involved in the demonstration with donations. Groups such as Planned Parenthood, Human Rights Watch and Sierra Club have benefitted from donations from Soros and yes, members of these groups did march. So indirectly Soros helped to sponsor those who marched.

 

To say that the women who did march were used by Soros in his battle against the Republican party is demeaning to the millions who did partake in the protest. Again, those who oppose equal rights and civil rights resort to undermining the work, the ideas and the passion of the protesters. Speaking to several marchers in Philadelphia and Washington D.C, if they were paid or sponsored by anyone or any group, they laughed. They had their own reasons for marching and did not need anyone to tell them why they there.

 

Two different women gave different reasons for why they attended the march Saturday. Deb Ashmore stated, “I marched because I do have a voice and I deserved to be heard.” Ashmore is a married mom of two, married and works full time. Ashmore marched on Washington with her two daughters.

 

In Philadelphia, 50,000 men and women marched to show their support and for the same rights that the marchers in Washington were protesting for. Kayla Naughton and Amanda Koch are young women who just graduated from college with Koch continuing her education for a graduate degree. Both women graduated and now owe thousands in student loans. They marched for a common reason. Equal rights including reproductive rights were the main reasons they marched. Naughton said that she marched because “the rights of myself and the majority of my fellow Americans is at stake.”

 

These and the majority of marchers were not there because George Soros or any other one person donated or sponsored them. They paid their bus tickets, they took time away from home and they were not in collusion with any radicals who want the destruction of the USA. They used their voices to call out the elected officials who may want to reduce or remove what they contend are civil rights.

 

Women who fight for equal rights have always been a source of amusement by those who believe that change is dangerous. Those who refuse to be enlighten to the needs of minorities are constantly belittling those they don’t understand.

Anderson Cooper and Kellyanne Conway Argue Over “Fake News” Claim on CNN

via Anderson Cooper and Kellyanne Conway Argue Over “Fake News” Claim on CNN — 93.1 WZAK

Anderson Cooper is not a fan of Kellyanne Conway’s sunshiney spin habits. That much was obvious a few days before the election when he was probably thinking his fresh hell was almost over, and he asked her, “Don’t facts matter?” In the above clip, Cooper catches a perpetual grin (after 1:25) and nearly laughs due to Conway’s strenuous efforts to bash CNN (while visiting with CNN) and gets real: “What you think, and what is true are not necessarily the same thing.”

Naturally, the two mortal enemies were discussing the “golden showers” file released by Buzzfeed. Prior to the Internet exploding over those lurid details, CNN reported on the two-page addendum that only revealed how Russia had some “compromising” information against Trump.

The important distinction, of course, is that CNN chose not to publish the dossierbecause it was full of unverified claims. Trump either missed this fine point or ignored it while lashing out Jim Acosta and trashing CNN as “fake news.” Cooper soon discovered that Conway believed that CNN was just as culpable as Buzzfeed, and things grew ridiculous when Cooper asked Conway to tell him what was untrue about CNN’s report. She tried to change the subject, so he said, “You like to pivot,” which really set Conway off:
