+ Elizabeth Moss will play former congresswoman Katie Hill in a streaming film adaptation of Hill’s forthcoming memoir, She Will Rise: Becoming a Warrior in the Battle for True Equality. In the 2018 midterms, Hill was the first openly bisexual woman elected to Congress. In 2019, she resigned after admitting to having an inappropriate relationship with a campaign staffer. (Also after the Daily Mail published nude photos of her.) In a very odd turn of events, last night, Hill’s former staff took to her old congressional Twitter account to protest the news of the film.
+ The Hollywood Reporters‘s got a whole entire feature with Meryl Streep, Kerry Washington and Nicole Kidman about Ryan Murphy’s upcoming adaptation of The Prom.
+ Natalie called this “Natalie cat-nip” and I couldn’t agree more. If I were trying to lure her out of hiding, I would definitely just play this trailer.
+ ANYTHING FOR SELENAS! 😭
