The Entertation Index: December 16

December 16, 2009

Broadway, Strike on — More than 260 Broadway service workers granted their union bargaining committee the authority to settle or strike in their negotiations with Broadway theatre owners. The union vows not to rest, however, until they are one thousand jazz hands strong.

Bullock, Sandra — The actress told reporters she was “beyond stunned” to find she had netted Golden Globe nomations for her roles in recent films The Blind Side and The Proposal. Also stunned? People who actually saw those movies.

Crowe, Russell — The trailer for the Ridley Scott/Russell Crowe epic Robin Hood hit the internet yesterday, but personally, I’m a little skeptical as to its faithfulness to the original stories. For one, I don’t think that Robin Hood defeated the Sheriff of Nottingham’s men by throwing telephones at them. And while I appreciate Ridley Scott’s subversive imagery, I don’t think all the trees in Sherwood Forest need to look like vaginas. But judge for yourself.

Hudson, Kate — The actress is reportedly splitting up with Yankee third-baseman Alex Rodriguez, as the couple just wants different things: he wants to have sex with 200 more women, and she wants to parlay her relationship with him into a relationship with someone else more in the spotlight right now. The one thing they both agree upon? Continuing to humiliate the people who they started actual families with. Ain’t love grand?

Love, Courtney — Love has reportedly lost guardianship of Frances Bean Cobain, her daughter with the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. This decision was reached, apparently, by someone with eyeballs.

Whedon, Joss — The Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dollhouse creator is set to release a soundtrack based on a commentary track based on the internet sensation Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. Whedon then will write a television show about the bowl of cereal he ate this morning, which will rake in millions of fans, and write a script called My Hangnail, which will rake in millions of fans, and turn an email he wrote to his friend into a movie, which will rake in millions of fans, and make up  an impromptu song while he’s driving to work, of which he will sell millions on CD. I wish I was Joss Whedon.
