NYT: The 18 actors (Scarlett Johansson was nominated for Actress and Supporting Actress, Margot Robbie was nominated twice in the same category, Supporting Actress!) nominated for BAFTAs are all white, in a year with performances by Cynthia Erivo, Jennifer Lopez, Awkwafina, Lupita Nyong'o, Eddie Murphy, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, Zhao Shuzhen, Song Kang-ho, Alfre Woodard, Octavia Spencer, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Taylor Russell, Jamie Foxx and many more who might've made the cut. It's silly to say it's all about who's best when these things are subjective, and when plenty of the best who are of color simply are not making the list.
POSEIDON'S UNDERWORLD: I'm OBSESSED with death. This much is clear. But so are a lot of fan-minded folk, like the monster (I kid!) over at Poseidon's Underworld, who has taken the time to cook up a list of all the famous folks who died in 2019 ... who made appearances in disaster flicks!

This was a complete nightmare scenario.
It's also sad to me that Bacon's parents refer to their son having “a dark side.” The dad even says “his dark side took his life.” Why? He just wanted to have sex:

ROLLING STONE: Elizabeth Wurtzel, whose Prozac Nation: Young and Depressed in America was a best-selling conversation-starter about mental health in 1994, died Tuesday of cancer. She was just 52.
SCOTTISH SUN: Virulently anti-LGBTQ monk excommunicated. Don't mess with Pope Francis!
CNN: Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Arizona) shared an obviously doctored image of Obama with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, along with the message:
The world is a better place without these guys in power.
Obama never met Rouhani — who is still, in fact, in power.
HUFF POST: Trolls have driven Lizzo from Twitter.
NYP: Rodrigo Alves, the so-called Human Ken Doll who has spent something like $650,000 on various surgeries, is now coming out as transgender. Now, Roddy, as she calls herself, is the Human Barbie Doll:
