Pop Style Opinionfest: Scandals and Snubs

Posted on January 25, 2019


Darlings, we sat down this morning and gabbed away on a variety of pop culture topics as we sipped our coffee and lightly bickered. You know, the usual stuff.

Of course we had things to say about the scandal surrounding director Bryan Singer which reached new heights of frenzy with the publication of an article in the Atlantic in which his accusers come forward with some pretty horrifying stories. We relate this story to the other accusations that rocked the entertainment industry in the past year, note the ways in which it may be the worst of all of them, and how we as gay men feel a responsibility to denounce and speak out against it. Also: our thoughts on Rami Malek, nominated for an Oscar for the Singer-directed Bohemian Rhapsody and what we think should happen to him for his collaboration.

Moving on to lighter fare, we run down the Oscar nominations, make a few more observations and predictions, and talk about some of the more egregious snubs. Plus, what the hell is wrong with the Oscars ceremony producers and the recent announcement about cutting the song performances? We run down what they need to do and why we need to be hired to take over the reins.

Also: reviews of Natasha Lyonne’s fascinating new jawn for Netflix Russian Doll and Lorenzo’s fave new international television obsession Derry Girls, also found on Netflix.

PLUS: A bit of a bitchfest over the new season 11 queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race!
