  1. Wow devastating about Betty, but I’d be at least as devastated if Motherland: Fort Salem was over, so at least there’s that. They’re both such incredible shows. HBO is mostly just good at making great things and then ruining them.

  2. I love Kristen, but I just don’t see the need for this film when The Crown literally exists. Even if she manages the accent, I don’t see her outperforming Emma Corrin or Elizabeth Debicki (now, SHE crazy looks like Diana in the promo shot). Princess Diana was a hugely important person to millions of people in the UK and commonwealth, and it’s annoying they cast an American to portray her.
