While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • We normally don't have enough feelings left over to care that much about who hosts the Oscars, but we're actually really disappointed Jimmy Fallon won't be doing it. Way to get our hopes up about that, Internet. [USA Today]
  • Thankfully, Kevin Hart announced that he's going to host this year's MTV Video Music Awards, otherwise we would've ended our hump day bummed out. Although, we really could've done without the Kimye bit. [MTV]
  • Jennifer Garner told us on the red carpet earlier this week that she was leaving the behind-the-camera work to her husband, and Ben Affleck is keeping his wife good on her word. Reports are bouncing around today that Affleck might be in the running for another directing job, this time to helm "Justice League." CNN Geek Out friends, how do we feel about this? [Variety]
  • This sounds like all types of "yes, please!": The creator of "Luther" is toying with the idea of creating a U.S.-based spinoff that would feature Ruth Wilson's Alice. [Vulture]
  • What does Lady Gaga's album title, "ARTPOP" mean? If you can decipher the haiku, get back to us on that: [Popdust]

    Fallon is lame. Guess he knows it and didn't want to embarass himself in primetime.

  23. just saying

    Seems Eddie came on an apologize. What more do you want? would you lIke for him to issue you his birth certificate? We all want to get along, we all are confused. Take his apology and just go with it. Sorry if my comment comes off as nasty, by all means It was not intended to be so. Yes, I agreed with your post on wyww the day before and let by gone be bygones and start over. New names and if there is someone or people we don't like, to take the bug out of our butts and move pass other. Anyway, who made you leader on here anyway? We are all adults, let's just act it.

    • ah...

      Yes, I did say those things about starting over. I never claimed to be anyone's leader, either. I just want to leave funny remarks, without then seeing my name all over the blog saying something disgusting. It gets really old after a while. Yes, I'll probably get trolled again. I will just change my name again, too. So like I've said before, if Ed wants to just play nice, I'm all for it. If he apologized, I accept it, but who posted at 8:34 in black? Was it him or somebody trolling him?

      Probably that sick demented jerk Derp. His comments are just twisted and demented. Have you seen some of the remarks he makes about kids? Honestly, he seem to be the idiot in black ink. Ed was some blue ink but not all. Well I have to go to work. Enjoy your day.

      I'm not bitter, just really confused! Can you tell me concretely what the heck is going on here? I do not have a clue. And who I am, is a mystery. I'm just a person that wants everyone to get along.

  30. ah...

    Good morning all! Ok Ed, what's the deal. Either somebody is trolling your name, or you have totally lost your mind. Which one is it? We would all like to just get along. What is it that you want? Either you want to get a along or you don't, clarify for us once & for all. First you post in blue, which tends to be not that bad, then you post in black, which is usually on the nasty side. Which one is actually you? Is somebody trolling you, too?
