The Post is Steven Spielberg's first movie since he turned 70 (and it's actually his first movie since he turned 71 too). It's just a little newspaper picture with a cast of newcomers like Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks and Bob Odenkirk and Matthew Rhys that Spielberg tossed off while he was simultaneously making Ready Player One (which comes out in a couple months). Oh, and it was nominated for six Golden Globes including Best Picture -- Drama and Best Director, and it's probably about to be nominated for a bunch of Oscars too. The Nose has seen it.
And: A woman not named Grace went on a date with Aziz Ansari, and it turned into the worst night of her life. And so, it hasn't been great for Ansari either. But maybe it's not that bad. But somehow now Ashleigh Banfield is part of the story? All I really know is that the whole thing is moot 'cause it turns out there's an app for that.
