The 2021 Golden Globes has officially kicked off, and your favorite stars are dressed to impress.
Laverne Cox dropped a serious SAT word during her virtual red carpet interview at Sunday’s Golden Globes. When asked by E! host Karamo Brown what she loved about “Bridgerton,” Cox mentioned the “extradiegetic” soundtrack. “It’s a period piece that is so much fun,” the “Promising Young Woman” actress said. “The anachronisms, the music — when it’s extradiegetic, Google it — it’s very anachronistic. It can be a Britney Spears song with a string quartet played in a very Baroque way. And the story is so much fun and yes, the Duke is insanely fine.” So we Googled it for you. Also Read: The Golden Globes Need a Major Overhaul - and Cosmetic Changes Won't Cut It Anymore According to TheFreeDictionary, extradiegetic means “the presentation of a narrative without direct dramatic imitation of the events, scenes, or characters described.” In other words, it’s elements that do not exist in the world of the film. In the Netflix period series, it’s the music from contemporary artists, including Ariana Grande’s “Thank U Next” and Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams.” You can check out the full list of classical covers and extradiegetic songs from “Bridgerton” here. The Golden Globes, hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, kicks off at 5 pm PT/8 pm PT on NBC. You can see a full list of TheWrap’s predictions here.

CNN’s Brian Stelter isn’t about ready to let a little thing like a childish comparison to Mr. Potato Head provoke him into a verbal spat with Donald Trump Jr., who tossed out the insult during his speech at CPAC on Saturday. On Sunday’s “Reliable Sources,” Stelter said such flinging of “distractions and dribble” that later spread and grow on social media and right-wing media outlets does what it is intended to do: draw people’s attention away from news stories that are actually important. He pointed out, in particular, how right-wing media outlets have turned the spotlight on trivial stories like the rebranding of Mr. Potato Head as gender-neutral or Disney+ adding disclaimers on some old episodes of “The Muppets” that says the program “includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures.” Also Read: CNN's Brian Stelter Warns That Right-Wing Media Will Continue to Push 'Extremism' After Trump (Video) “There is something wrong when so-called ‘cancel culture’ gets more attention than the troubles that millions of Americans are facing and the importance of a COVID relief bill,” Stelter said. And then there was Trump Jr.’s insult, which Stelter let slide off his back. “I thought of some really cutting responses, some really clever ways to respond, some really clever ways to go viral. But then, I stopped. I didn’t post anything,” Stelter said. “It was just another distraction. He wanted me to respond. This was just more BS fuel for the culture war, and it does not matter. The best thing we can do for each other in this world of tweetstorms is to refuse to be confused by that noise. There’s too much real news going on.” Watch Stelter’s segment about “distractions” in the clip below.

Donald Trump made his first post-presidential speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Sunday, during which he insisted that he will not split from the Republicans and start a new party and hinted he might try to take back the White House in 2024. “As you know they just lost the White House … but who knows, who knows, I may even decide to beat them for a third time,” the former president said, again making the false assertion that he had defeated Biden last November. The option of running again is still open to Trump after Democrats failed to get the two-thirds majority vote needed in the Senate impeachment trial to bar him from running for office again. Regardless of whether he does, Trump insisted he will continue to be involved in the Republican Party and shot down rumors that tensions between him and major Republican figures like Sen. Mitch McConnell could lead to a split. Also Read: Geraldo Rivera Urges Donald Trump to Apologize for 'Deeply Disturbing' Handling of Capitol Riot “We’re not starting new parties. They kept saying, ‘He’s going to start a new party!’ We have the Republican Party! It’s going to unite and be stronger than ever before. I am not starting a new party. That was fake news,” Trump said. “Wouldn’t that be brilliant? Let’s start a new party and let’s divide our vote, so that you can never win … No, we’re not interested in that.” In decades past, former presidents have remained silent on their successors’ policies. When Barack Obama, who saw Trump attempt to undo much of his legacy, spoke out against his successor for the first time at the University of Illinois in September 2018, it was considered a major break in tradition. But it has only taken about six weeks for Trump to strike back against the man that defeated him in the 2020 election as he begins his plans to remain a major figure in the Republican Party heading into the 2022 midterms. Also Read: Donald Trump Jr: You Don't Have to 'Lose Gracefully' in Politics (Video) Among the attacks leveled at Biden was a claim that the new president was “triggering a massive flood of illegal immigration into our country,” despite the fact that deportations of undocumented immigrants have not diminished in the opening weeks of Biden’s presidency. Biden had attempted to place a moratorium on deportations during the first 100 days of his presidency, but it was struck down in Texas by a federal district court judge. Trump also claimed that Biden was “anti-energy,” and said that Biden wants windmills that “don’t work when you need them.” The claim was likely in reference to debunked right-wing claims that winter storm power and heat outages in Texas this past month were caused by failures in renewable energy, even though the state’s energy grid is still heavily reliant on natural gas and fossil fuels. Trump also slammed Biden’s reversal of his withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accords, saying that it puts the country at an economic disadvantage. “What good does it does when we’re clean, but China’s not, and Russia’s not, and India’s not?” he said. While Biden’s approval rating currently sits higher than Trump’s at any point during his presidency, Trump still enjoys a sizable base of support amongst Republicans. A straw poll of CPAC attendees showed that 68% want Trump to run in 2024, and 55% said they would vote for him if he did run over the likes of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem. Read original story Trump Hints at 2024 Run During CPAC Speech: ‘I May Even Decide to Beat Them for a 3rd Time’ At TheWrap

We may still be in the middle of a global pandemic, but that’s not stopping Hollywood from kicking off awards season with its annual Golden Globes ceremony. This year’s award show will take place Sunday, Feb. 28 (better late than never). As it always does, the Golden Globes will air on NBC and start at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET. Even if you don’t have a way to sit down in front of a tv, there are a bunch of ways to stream the awards. You can obviously watch online via NBC.com or by using the network’s app, but keep in mind you do need a cable login to get access to the live stream. Other places the show will be streaming include YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV, and Fubo TV . All of these are subscriber apps you need to pay for but there’s some good news: seven-day trials exist, so you should be able to take advantage of that for the night. Also Read: Here's How To Stream The 2021 Golden Globes Red Carpet And if you’re one of those people who doesn’t care about being spoiled, you can watch (or re-watch) the show on the Peacock streaming service starting Monday, March 1st. Like the Globes ceremony itself, the red carpet pre-shows will be pretty different as well. While we won’t see our favorite actors walking around in person this year, there’s still a sort of red carpet experience for those who want to get the full award show experience. You can read more about that here. The 2021 Golden Globes will function in a virtual fashion much like last year’s Emmy Awards, with the nominees streaming in from all around the world. The big difference, however, is that the ceremony will mark the Globes’ first bicoastal/hybrid airing. Returning hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will each be live from both sides of the country: Fey will be in New York City’s Rainbow Room at Rockefeller Center and Poehler will be in the Beverly Hilton, the ceremony’s usual Los Angeles location. A select number of presenters will be in person at both locations to introduce awards, but all winners will appear virtually.

She's making history!
This story includes Dylan Farrow’s detailed accusations from Episode 2 of HBO’s “Allen v Farrow” HBO’s four-part docuseries “Allen v Farrow” takes a deep, dark and disturbing path tonight with the reveal of never-before-seen home video footage of a 7-year-old Dylan Farrow sharing graphic details about how Woody Allen molested her during a Connecticut summer in 1992. Until now, allegations of interaction between Farrow and her adoptive father have been speculation based on interpretation of his “affection” for her. But in a nearly three-decade-old grainy video, a very young Farrow says what happened. “He touched my privates,” Dylan says to her mother, Mia Farrow, who is holding the camera and questioning her daughter. “And then he was breathing on my leg.” She breaks off to indicate where, before saying, “He squeezed me too hard that I couldn’t breathe.” When Mia asks her to elaborate on where he touched her, Dylan points to the space between her legs, adding that Allen took her into the attic. Also Read: Dylan Farrow Implores 'Empathy, Compassion' in Watching Her 7-Year-Old Self Accuse Woody Allen on Video “He said, ‘What about some father-daughter time?’ And then I said, ‘Well OK,” Dylan continues in a second video. “We went into your room and we went into the attic. Then he started telling me weird things. Then secretly he went into the attic, went behind me and touched my privates.” Mia asks which privates did he touch; Dylan once again points between her legs. “He touched your front parts?” Farrow confirms. “Yeah!” Dylan answers, sounding upset. In yet another video, Mia asks her daughter “what things daddy said in the attic,” which elicits the most disturbing response of all. “When I was in the attic he said, ‘Do not move, I have to do this,'” young Dylan says while chewing on her hair. “But I wiggled my bum to see what he was doing and he said, ‘Do not move, I have to do this! So if you stay still, then um, we can go to Paris.'” Also Read: Why Mia Farrow Is 'Scared' of How Woody Allen Will React to HBO's 'Allen v. Farrow' Docuseries In Episode 2, an emotional Mia recounts how, while she’d been running errands that day, her babysitter had seen Allen engaging in the abuse when she walked in on them by accident. With Dylan’s therapist out of town and Farrow determined to have proof of her daughter’s allegations, she decided to record Dylan herself, taping her over the next two days. While the video itself has been a notable part of the allegations of sexual abuse against Allen as well as his custody battle with Farrow, Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering’s docuseries marks the first time it’s been seen by the public. In 2014, Dylan spoke out against Allen in a NY Times op-ed. “As you can imagine, it’s extremely intense and harrowing to watch. After considerable thought and discussion, we felt it was important to use small portions of the tape, because it serves as evidence of Dylan’s outcry,” Dick told the L.A. Times. Episode 2 of “Allen v. Farrow” airs this Sunday on HBO at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Episodes 3-4 will air the following Sundays at the same time.

You probably already know that fast food isn't one of the healthiest food options, considering it's usually processed, high in calories, and often fried (we're looking at you, french fries and onion rings). Despite knowing its unhealthy aspects, it may feel nearly impossible to turn down your favorite fast-food spot as you're driving by… and that's not entirely your fault.Michael Moss, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, reveals in his book Hooked: Food, Free Will, and How the Food Giants Exploit Our Addictions that fast-food can be just as addictive as heroin. If you're wondering how this is possible, Moss breaks it down: While heroin relies on morphine to draw out the addictive nature of the drug, fast-food turns to simpler elements like fat, salt, and sugar, all of which have the same impact on us once we take a bite. (Related: 17 Seriously Scary Side Effects of Eating Fast Food)The reason for this is that these components—fat, sugar, and salt— trigger that same dopamine release in our brains that morphine does. As the New York Post reports, Moss notes in his book that, "[Dopamine] is a tool for our survival. We need to eat in order to live, and dopamine is there to motivate us to eat." So, this is what might make it so difficult for your brain to turn away the fast food you know and love.Moss also highlights that food manufacturers may be using this addictive property in fast food to their advantage. They use a nearly undetectable, highly processed starch derivative called Maltodextrin, which has the same addictive properties of sugar (it just doesn't taste sweet). It's foods with these types of processed starches that can shoot your glucose levels up, then almost immediately go back down, which "prods the brain into making more dopamine that calls upon us to look for more food," writes Moss.And so begins the endless cycle of searching for food that has the same impact on the body. This is why you may begin to crave those same unhealthy fast-food meals over and over—you may truly be addicted to the effect the food has on you.For more, beware of this ugly sign you're eating too much fast food, according to science.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the President, has already received his coronavirus vaccine—the Moderna vaccine. But with the “good news”—his words—of the Johnson&Johnson vaccine winning emergency approval this weekend, you now have three vaccines you might get: One from Moderna, one from Pfizer and one from J&J. The difference? The first two have an efficacy rate well over 90%, while J&J ranks lower at 72%. Dr. Fauci says comparing them like that isn’t helpful. Read on to see which vaccine he would take if he could—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. 1 Dr. Fauci Said He’d Take Whichever Vaccine Was Offered to Him, Including the J&J One On Sunday’s This Week With George Stephanopoulos, the host asked Fauci if we should worry about the J + J performance. “We've got to get away from that chain of thought for the following reason,” said Fauci. “The only way you really know the difference between vaccines is by comparing them head to head. We have three highly efficacious vaccines that are safe and efficacious. That's the bottom line and the J&J, if you look at them, particularly in things that we really care about, they're important. It's got greater than 85% efficacy after a severe disease and critical disease. And there were no deaths or hospitalizations in any of the countries that were tested. And remember they tested in the United States and South Africa and in South America. This is a good vaccine,” he continued. “I think we need to pull away from this comparing and parsing numbers until you compare them head to head, just be really grateful that we have three really efficacious vaccines.” 2 Dr. Fauci Reiterated He Would Have “No Hesitancy Whatsoever” Taking the J&J Vaccine On Meet the Press, Fauci continued to put things in context. “First of all, you would now have three highly efficacious vaccines, for sure. There's no doubt about that. And particularly the recent results from J&J—if you look at the efficacy against severe disease, greater than 85%, and there'd been no hospitalizations or deaths in multiple countries, even in countries that have the variants. So be careful when you try to parse this percent versus that. All three of them are really quite good and people should take the one that's most available to them. If you go to a place and you have J&J and that's the one that's available now, I would take it. I personally do the same thing. I think people need to get vaccinated as quickly and as expeditiously as possible. And if I would go to a place where they had J&J I would have no hesitancy whatsoever to take it.” 3 Dr. Fauci Said the J&J Was Not an “Inferior Vaccine” for Older Americans Fauci continued his line on Face the Nation. “Is Johnson and Johnson an inferior vaccine, particularly for older Americans?” asked host Margaret Brennan. “No, you know, you can't say that,” answered Dr. Fauci. “We now have clearly three highly efficacious vaccines. They're highly efficacious in many ways, including importantly, preventing severe or critical disease. If you look at all three of them, they're really very good. The J&J data that just came out and that was just examined by the FDA. When you have advanced critical disease, there were no hospitalizations and no deaths. That's good news Margaret. So I think rather than parsing out subgroups here, let's just look at the totality of this. We have a really good vaccine.” 4 Dr. Fauci Said Again He Would Have Taken the J&J If It Was Offered Fauci had a busy Sunday morning. On CNN’s State of the Union, Fauci was asked again about the J&J efficacy and worries about it being too low. “You can understand that type of a concern,” Fauci told host Dana Bash, “but in order to really compare vaccines, you have to compare them head to head. And these were not compared head to head. The message that needs to be prevail…is that these are three highly efficacious vaccines. I can tell you, I have been fully vaccinated with one that was available. It was the Moderna. If I were not vaccinated now, and I had a choice of getting a J&J vaccine now or waiting for another vaccine, I would take whatever vaccine would be available to me as quickly as possible for the simple reason of what I said a moment ago. We want to get as many people vaccinated as quickly and as expeditiously as possible. So this is good news because we have another very good vaccine in the mix.”RELATED: Dr. Fauci Just Said When We'd Get Back to Normal 5 Dr. Fauci Said: Here’s the “Bottom Line” About Which Vaccine to Get “So bottom line,” he said, “if you're offered a vaccine, whichever one you're offered, you should take it.” So get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.
