Will Timothee Chalamet Eff A Peach In The Bob Dylan Biopic, Yes Or Yes?

Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman are shaking!

Peach advocate and general cutie-pie, Timothee Chalamet, is set to play the one-and-only Bob Dylan in a movie biopic for Fox Searchlight. However, the only question on everyone’s minds is, will the infamous peach make an appearance? The answer is unknown. 

Me, thinking about a movie without the peach.

The biopic, titled Going Electric, is set to follow the iconic musician as he evolves from folk singer to rock-and-roll superstar. The motion picture going to be directed by Ford V. Ferrari director, James Mangold, and feature creative input from Bob Dylan himself.

The release date of the film is still to be announced, but filming is reportedly due to start as soon as Timothee Chalamet finishes up in his London stage-debut in May this year. According to Deadline, Chalamet is already “taking guitar lessons so he can familiarize himself with the acoustic and electric guitar.” Can we just get the soundtrack already, please? 

Can he sing as good as he can stare into the camera? Time will tell.

But let’s be real, are we really surprised at the announcement of this movie? The announcement of this film comes just a day after Taron Egerton won Best Actor for his Elton John portrayal in Rocketman at the 77th Golden Globe Awards. Not to mention, it wasn’t long after the release of Bohemian Rhapsody that the Queen biopic became the highest-grossing music biopic ever. The trends are clear; music biopics are in and Bob Dylan is a fascinating subject. 

This music biopic earned over $900 million USD.

There hasn’t been a high-profile Bob Dylan in over a decade with the last one being that of the unconventional, 2007 film, I’m Not There. As a result, Timothee Chalamet will join Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Richard Gere and Heath Ledger, as actors who have played the legend. Prior to that, Martin Scorsese directed a documentary on the star called No Direction Home.

Taken from Martin Scorsese’s 2005 documentary.

Also, back in 2018, the director of Call Me By Your Name, Luca Guadagnino, said that he planned to turn Dylan’s 1975 album Blood on the Tracks into a motion picture. Given the mutual love of Bob Dylan, it is plausible that Bob Dylan was playing in the background of that peach scene. 

Bring back the peach! Please!

These Snubs Prove the Golden Globes Are Hella Outta Touch

There were heaps of winners, but one clear loser.

The 77th Annual Golden Globes marked the first big award ceremony for the decade and boy, oh boy, did they miss the mark. While yes, many up-and-comers left with a chunk of gold in their hands, many left empty-handed. Here are some of those people.

But, if you need a little refresher on what happened at the Golden Globes, we wrapped up everything you need to know in 120 seconds! Watch below.

6.  Queen of Pop, Queen Elsa of Arendelle

Elsa reigned the Arendelle pop charts back in 2013 and far out, did she come back with an anthem. It was a contentious fight for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture, but even against Elton John, Beyonce and Taylor Swift, there was one clear winner – and let’s just say she’s got icy powers.

While “Into The Unknown” may sound annoying if you’re a parent of screaming toddlers, you can’t deny its catchiness and impeccable vocal delivery. Plus, you don’t get the highest-grossing animated film of all time without an iconic bop driving it.

5.  Parasite

The groundbreaking motion picture that was Parasite deserved much more than it took away. While it nabbed Best Motion Picture (Foreign Language) at the Golden Globes, many fans were upset Bong Joon-ho didn’t take home Best Director. Or Best Original Screenplay, for that matter.

4. Jennifer Lopez

While J-LO was the queen of the rom-coms back in the early ’00s, her role in Hustlers marked a new era in her acting career. Slaying alongside Constance Wu, Cardi B and Lizzo, this film displayed Jennifer Lopez’s best acting performance to date, making this triple threat more deserving of the award than her peers. Someone give J-LO a Golden Globe so she can get EGOT status, ASAP!

3. The Irishman

When Martin Scorsese pops out of his cave every few years, the courtesy is to give him his well-deserved Golden Globe. This year, that didn’t happen. The Irishman is over three hours long and it stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci, aka this motion picture is made to win awards. And yet, here we are, no award in sight. 

2. Marriage Story

While Laura Dern was awarded the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress for her work in Marriage Story, viewers were shocked when that’s all the Netflix Original won. To much surprise, Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson were shut out of Best Actor and Actress in a Motion Picture (Drama), respectively. Considering the movie made me bawl my eyes out for approximately 2 hours straight, this snub hit hard.

Given the last two on this list, our number one pick shouldn’t shock you. At the start of the night, host Ricky Gervais boldly declared “Everyone is watching Netflix, this show should just be me coming out going: ‘Well done, Netflix. You win everything tonight.’”

And yet, with 34 nominations under their belt, the two wins they did rack hardly seem like a triumph. In addition to the Marriage Story and The Irishman subs, Two Popes was also shut out of any of the categories. Could the Oscars next month rectify this? Only time will tell.

This Monty Python Needs To Be Collected After His Rank #MeToo Comments

You make me sad!

In controversial-for-the-sake-of-being-controversial news, Terry Gilliam is back on his anti-#MeToo bullshit.

With a new movie to promote, this Monty Python alum is reinstating his complete-and-utter-nonsense opinions, which argue that white men are the real victims in the #MeToo movement.  

Here for absolutely none of this in 2020.

In an interview with The Independent, the director quickly derailed the chat away from promoting his upcoming film, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, and spent most of the conversation resurfacing his old, vile opinions.

Kicking things off in the interview, Gilliam declared himself a “black lesbian in transition” because he was “tired, as a white male, of being blamed for everything that is wrong with the world”. I literally can’t.

You can’t make this stuff up folks.

He said, “I’m talking about being a man accused of all the wrong in the world because I’m white-skinned. So I better not be a man. I better not be white. OK, since I don’t find men sexually attractive, I’ve got to be a lesbian.”

Only a few days into 2020 and already, Mr. Terry Gilliam seems to have uttered the most offensive statement of the decade.

If you thought this interview couldn’t get any worse, just wait until you hear his anti-#MeToo comments regarding the victims of Harvey Weinstein. Gilliam was quick to jump to the defense of Weinstein (the two had previously worked together in 2005 for The Brothers Grimm); he called some of Weinstein’s victims “ambitious adults”, who merely made “choices” while trying to come up in the entertainment industry.

Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Hate everything about this.

To end things on an even more chilling note, Gilliam shared his general thoughts on power, saying: “When you have power, you don’t take responsibility for abusing others… You enjoy the power.”

Jesus Christ, can someone please collect this antiquated, old man?
