A New Day Dawns in Hollywood

With history’s longest actor’s strike finally over after four months of negotiations, protests, and stalemates, a new day in Hollywood has dawned. Screen Actors Guild (SAG) negotiators met with Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers executives and procured a new pay structure for streamers, immediate wage increases for performers and background actors, new benefits packages, and AI protections. With the writer’s strike delaying the release of new shows and the actor’s strike delaying premieres and red carpets, entertainment news dwindled to a whisper in the past few months. Since that area happens to be The Scroll’s bread-and-butter, we’re hoping that with both strikes over, we get something extra juicy to talk about to make up for the last few months of “Kardashians did a thing” news.


The Bentley Got a Bumper Sticker

There have been many iconic moments on The Wendy Williams Show, and one such moment saw Kim Kardashian declaring that she had no tattoos with the justification, “Honey, would you put a bumper sticker on a Bentley?” However, in the most recent episode of Hulu’s The Kardashians, Kim revealed that she caved and got a tattoo after her SNL appearance in 2021, and pulled her bottom lip down to reveal a blurry infinity tattoo. Never say never, I guess. While this is only entertainment news in the sense that it’s a thing that happened, a famous person did it, and lots of people talked about it, it doesn’t take a psychic to make the leap from her 2021 tattoo to her former tattooed boyfriend, Pete Davidson, whom she also acquired after her SNL appearance. Unfortunately, that relationship didn't last for infinity.

Music Stans Have a Busy Weekend

With the announcement of the 2024 Grammy nominees came a drove of activity on X, the app formerly known as Twitter, where music stans flooded the platform with ardor for their favorite nominated artists and outrage for those snubbed. Many were thrilled to see Nigerian artists Davido and Burna Boy nominated, along with a long list of familiar names like Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, Ice Spice, Olivia Rodrigo, boygenius, Janelle Monáe, and more. The Beyhive started buzzing about Beyoncé being snubbed only to be shut down by the fact that Renaissance came out, um, two years ago. The Barbie film also swept the announcements, picking up noms for many individual songs as well as the nomination for Best Soundtrack. While we have no say in the matter, we’re crossing our fingers for a live rendition of “I’m Just Ken’ with Ryan Gosling at the awards ceremony on February 4, 2024.


The Hunger Games Red Carpet Keeps Us Fed

Set 64 years before the events of the Hunger Games franchise starring Jennifer Lawrence, the fifth film installment, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, is upon us, and it’s the first major red carpet we’ve had since the SAG-AFTRA strikes were resolved. The new cast of Hunger Games, including Rachel Zegler, Tom Blyth, Hunter Schafer, and Josh Andres Rivera, capitalized on their big moment by turning looks. After a famine of red-carpet fashion, Schafer fed us with a stunning painterly Schiaparelli look, followed by a foiled gold Prada two-piece, while Zegler paid homage to Katniss’s iconic Mockingjay dress in a new version by Alexander McQueen
