Home alcohol deliveries became a widespread trend after COVID-19 left most Americans suddenly bound to their own kitchens. With restaurant closures happening almost daily, the relaxed rules that made alcoholic beverage deliveries possible were wholeheartedly embraced by the alcohol and restaurant industries. But keeping this level of access to alcohol beyond the pandemic could have detrimental consequences to public health, advocacy groups say.Last year, 30 states loosened their alcohol restrictions, making to-go drinks the new normal. Not only can you order wine to be delivered by the case to your doorstep, but local restaurant orders through delivery apps can also include cocktails and beers. These allowances were supposed to be temporary moves intended to boost revenues for businesses amid sharp declines in foot traffic to restaurants and bars.However, both businesses and their customers have loved the convenient new measures, and they don't want to go back to pre-pandemic restrictions, according to Business Insider. And the potential to make these newer, laxer alcohol laws permanent has public health groups concerned. (RELATED: The Saddest Restaurant Closures in Your State)The American Public Health Association and the U.S. Alcohol Policy Alliance are two public health advocacy groups warning about the dangerous consequences of looser alcohol laws, including higher instances of alcohol addiction, drunk driving, and underage drinking, among others."The more available alcohol is, the more we are likely to see increases in drinking and the harms associated with that," Alicia Sparks, vice chair of the Alcohol Policy Alliance, told Business Insider. "We fully support small businesses. We just want to be thinking of how we can help them grow in a way that's safer for communities."But the battle may already be lost. States like Ohio, Massachusetts, Iowa, as well as the District of Columbia, have already made their to-go alcohol allowances permanent. Texas, Oklahoma, Maryland, and Florida are about to make the same changes to their laws. Mark Whatley, the National Restaurant Association's vice president for state affairs and grassroots advocacy, said he hopes that as many as 40 states would make the same concessions by the end of the year.Don't forget to sign up for our newsletter to get all of the latest restaurant news delivered straight to your inbox.

The Oscars are fully committing to the idea that this year’s ceremony will be like a “movie” — not an awards show — and have now announced its “ensemble cast” of stars to present the night’s prizes. This year’s ceremony is “starring,” in alphabetical order, Angela Bassett, Halle Berry, Bong Joon Ho, Don Cheadle, Bryan Cranston, Laura Dern, Harrison Ford, Regina King, Marlee Matlin, Rita Moreno, Joaquin Phoenix, Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Renée Zellweger and Zendaya. Names like Ford, King, Matlin, Moreno, Witherspoon and Cranston are mixed in with the tradition of inviting back the previous year’s winners, which include Bong, Dern, Phoenix, Pitt and Zellweger. Additional talent to join the “cast” will be announced later.

The show also released a new teaser for the ceremony, which you can watch above. “In a world filled with awards shows, what if an awards show was actually a movie? Which stars would you cast?” the promo asks, before touting its new star-studded lineup.

The 93rd Academy Awards air live on ABC on Sunday, April 25, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. The awards-show-as-a-movie will take place at Union Station in Los Angeles and the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, as well as in international locations live via satellite.

On Monday’s episode of “The View,” the co-hosts had a somber discussion about the ongoing pattern of systemic police racism in America that included a chilling video of Army Lieutenant Caron Nazario getting pepper-sprayed by police during a traffic stop. And, for once, all of the ladies were in agreement about their feelings for the situation. “For those police officers, in particular, to treat a lieutenant army medic that way, shame on them,” Meghan McCain said after showing the video in which police harassed Nazario, who was politely asking why he was being treated like a criminal. McCain went on to express her disbelief and sadness about the encounter noting, “He’s an army medic, and everyone knows that army medics, those are the ones that are into the real intensity and insanity of war zones — people who literally deal with their legs blown off or deal with IEDs. It’s a very intense, serious job. So for an army medic to be, obviously, treated that way is beyond my comprehension. I can’t imagine that an army medic, given the things I’m sure he has experienced and seen, being on a place where he’s crying on the ground and being pepper-sprayed and treated like an animal…just how bad and egregious and disgusting the incident was.” That’s not to say McCain didn’t unintentionally express her privilege of being a white woman while sharing her thoughts. “If I said, ‘I’m scared’ to a police officer, I hope they’d say, ‘There’s nothing to be scared of. We’re just trying to figure this out. We’re just trying to work it out,'” she said. “And I think you can believe and respect the integrity of our law enforcement and also recognize that there’s serious systemic issues that have gone unchecked and this is just not how we treat our veterans. It’s not how we treat our soldiers.” Also Read: 'The View': Meghan McCain Says She 'Doesn't Need Any Democrats Telling Me What to Do or How to Think' (Video) Goldberg’s point was much blunter: “I really think every state needs to follow Maryland’s leads and get rid of the police bill of rights and police unions.” Watch the video below.

Sheryl Underwood is ready to move on from all of this Sharon Osbourne drama, but first, the (remaining) co-hosts of CBS’ “The Talk” about going to talk about it. At the top of Monday’s return, Underwood set up a very different kind of hour for the daytime gabfest. “It’s Monday, April 12, and it’s time for an episode of ‘The Talk’ that will be unlike any other we’ve had before.” Underwood said in the opening. “As you may know, during our break, Sharon decided to leave ‘The Talk.’ We need to process the events of that day and what happened since, so we can get to the healing. Over the next hour, we will honestly discuss what occurred and explore some of our feelings. And we’ll also show you how anyone can become more comfortable discussing important issues and having difficult conversations. By the end of the hour, we want everyone to feel empowered and ready to move forward. So, let’s start talking.

During the March 10 episode of “The Talk,” Osbourne came to the defense of longtime friend Piers Morgan after he was criticized for making disparaging comments about Meghan Markle. Some critics, including Underwood, said Morgan’s words where racially motivated (Markle, whose mother is Black, is biracial), leading to an on-air meltdown in which Osbourne said she felt like she was “about to be put in the electric chair” for having a racist friend. Morgan made headlines for saying he did not believe a word Markle told Oprah Winfrey in a recent high-profile interview. During the special, which aired on CBS, the former “Suits” star was highly critical of the British royal family. Markle and her husband Prince Harry defected from their royal duties and status. Also Read: Sharon Osbourne Ousted From 'The Talk' Following Racism Firestorm Soon after the discussion, CBS launched an internal review into the on-air comments about racism and allegations of racially insensitive behavior behind-the-scenes at “The Talk.” A few weeks later, on March 26, Osbourne exited the show. “The events of the March 10 broadcast were upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home. As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace. We also did not find any evidence that CBS executives orchestrated the discussion or blindsided any of the hosts,” CBS said in a statement at the time. “At the same time, we acknowledge the Network and Studio teams, as well as the showrunners, are accountable for what happened during that broadcast as it was clear the co-hosts were not properly prepared by the staff for a complex and sensitive discussion involving race,” Today, hosts Sheryl Underwood, Carrie Ann Inaba, Amanda Kloots and Elaine Welteroth returned to the air with a discussion about race and healing, according to the episodic description. Joining them was expert on diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice Dr. Donald E. Grant, whom offered advice on how to have these sorts of difficult conversations. Additionally, trauma therapist/life coach Dr. Anita Phillips shared her expertise on how to heal after a painful event or conversation. “The Talk” airs at 2 p.m. ET on CBS.
