Taylor Simone Ledward Gives Gorgeous Tribute to Late Husband Chadwick Boseman at 2021 Golden Globes


At the 2021 Golden Globe Awards, Chadwick Boseman became the first actor since 1976 to win a posthumous Globe for his role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. The beloved actor behind such legendary films as Black Panther died in August 2020 of colon cancer. He was 43.

During the unorthodox Globes event, in which some presenters and nominees attended in person while others joined via video conference, his wife accepted the award on his behalf. Her powerful, heart-wrenching speech prompted tears in Boseman’s fellow nominees as well as audience members watching at home.

He would thank God. He would thank his parents. He would thank his ancestors for their guidance and their sacrifices. He would thank his incredible team…He would thank his team on set for this film.

He would say something beautiful. Something inspiring. Something that would amplify that little voice inside of all of us that tells us that you can, that tells you to keep going, that calls you back to what you are meant to be doing at this moment in history.

He would thank Mr. George C. Wolfe, Mr. Denzel Washington, lots of people at Netflix. He would thank Miss Viola Davis, Mr. Glynn Turman, Mr. Michael Potts, Mr. Colman Domingo, Miss Taylor Paige, Mr. Dusan Brown.

And I don’t have his words.

But we have to take all of the moments to celebrate those we love, so thank you, HFPA, for this opportunity to do exactly that.

And honey, you keep ‘em coming. Thank you.

Lily Collins Wears One-Shoulder Dress at 2021 Golden Globes


Surprise Emily in Paris Golden Globes nominee Lily Collins went all in with a big fashion moment at tonight’s bicoastal award ceremony. The 31-year-old actress opted to wear a colorful one-shoulder dress, channeling old Hollywood with her curls and bold lipstick. The look was a nod to her Emily in Paris character’s whimsical, colorful wardrobe, with vintage vibes that also nodded to her Mank character, Rita Alexander. Collins’ look was first seen during the Golden Globes broadcast. The actress hasn’t shared a full-length photo of the look yet:

Collins was up for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy TV Series for her work as Emily in the hit Netflix series, but lost to Catherine O’Hara, who won for her work on Schitt’s Creek. Emily in Paris itself has a Best Musical or Comedy TV Series nod and Collins’ movie Mank has six nominations, including one for Best Drama Motion Picture.

When her nomination was announced on February 3, Collins shared an Instagram expressing her joy at her inclusion.

“I tried to share the excitement with @redforddog but maybe it’s still too early for him…” she wrote. “So honored to be nominated for a Golden Globe! I’m beaming for both my @emilyinparis family (my first project as a producer!) – and the incredible @mank team. What a wild morning! Ecstatic and grateful doesn’t even begin to cut it…”

Collins spoke to Deadline in February about why she believes Emily in Paris resonated so much with viewers (and apparently the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, to some people’s outrage). “Emily allows for a sense of adventure,” Collins said. “There’s the aesthetic of you’re able to lose yourself in of another country… That sense of adventure I think we’re all craving more than ever [during the coronavirus pandemic].”

She also mused about the future of Emily’s love life—and how nothing is really set—in upcoming season 2. “I don’t know what they’re writing right now, but I think it would be a little early for Emily to lock something in,” Collins admitted. “I think she’s still exploring the prospects. Honestly I think Emily doesn’t even know [what will happen], and that’s the beauty of the way that they write the show. She has yet to find all the qualities she maybe is looking for. But that being said, there is that connection with [her neighbor] Gabriel, but now she has [her friend and Gabriel’s girlfriend] Camille in that love triangle, so I think there’s still experiences to be had, adventure to be had, and she’s still finding herself.”

Who Is Menno Versteeg? – Meet Annie Murphy’s Husband


Annie Murphy made a name for herself as Alexis Rose in Schitt’s Creek, for which she is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Supporting Role at the Golden Globes on Sunday. Viewers watched Murphy, as Alexis, date the hippie Mutt (Tim Rozon) and the sweet veterinarian, Ted (Dustin Milligan).

In real life, though, Murphy, 34, has been married to her husband, Menno Versteeg, since August 2011. Murphy and Versteeg keep their relationship private, although the actress does like to post the occasional silly photo with her husband.

“Happy belated anniversary, @mennovers,” she wrote in 2018. “I looked it up, and 7 years isn’t actually copper and wool – it’s two muscly German tourists NAMED Koper and Wöl dressed in identical outfits taking pictures on a ferry. You’re welcome. ❤️”

Murphy won an Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a comedy series during Schitt’s Creek‘s history-making sweep in 2020, and Versteeg was clearly overjoyed for his wife. He posted to congratulate her on her first nomination.

“Congratulations on your very first Emmy nom,” he wrote. ” ❤️🦋❤️🦋❤️🦋❤️🦋❤️🦋😘you truly truly deserve it and I couldn’t be more proud of you. (p.s @instadanjlevy is gonna be SO STOKED when you tell him you are wearing Value Village to the red carpet).”

The couple seems to share the same goofy sense of humor. In 2018, he shared this comedic photo of him and Murphy with the caption, “Took some new engagement pics by the tree.”

“You lose in your category to Catherine O’Hara every year at the CSA’s, but also you win the whole damn thing as far as I’m concerned. #wineinawaterbottle So proud of you Annie 😘😘🕺🏼🕺🏼🕺🏼🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻😘😘😘,” he joked at the Canadian Screen Awards three years ago.

To declare that your wife beat out everyone in the room, including Catherine O’Hara, in your opinion is the right move to make as a loving spouse. Clearly Versteeg is a supportive husband, but he’s had a successful career, too. Here are the details about him.

Like Murphy, he is Canadian

Versteeg was born in Ottowa, Ontario, his wife’s hometown, in January 1980.

He’s a professional musician

His former band, Hollerado, released their first album in 2009 under their label, Royal Mountain Records, of which Versteeg is a co-founder. Hollerado officially called it quits in 2019, but as The Globe and Mail wrote, it’s become “Toronto’s scrappiest and most successful labels and music-management companies.”

Their first album, Record in a Bag, got attention when the 2010 music video for one of its songs, “Americanarama,” was a spoof on the clothing brand American Apparel.

After their decade run, Versteeg told the The Globe and Mail that it was time for him and his band members to move on: “Life’s too short,” he said. “We all want to do different things and experience something new.”

In 2018, Versteeg joined the group Anyway Gang; they released their eponymous debut album November 2019 through Royal Mountain Records. He also released a solo debut album, Reno Tapes, under the name Mav Karlo.

He and Murphy have collaborated musically

As Murphy and Versteeg told ELLE in September 2020, they both worked on the iconic Schitt’s Creek original song, “A Little Bit Alexis.” Versteeg and the couple’s friend wrote the melody for the song, and Murphy wrote the lyrics.

“Once I got the green light, of course I was like, ‘Oh, fuck. Okay, resources, resources,'” she told ELLE. “So I found my two dear musician people, and told them, ‘Well, I just got myself into a predicament.'”

Versteeg said, “I’d been in some chain fashion store and ‘Work Bitch’ by Britney Spears was on. The second [Annie] told me [about ‘A Little Bit Alexis,’] I knew I wanted to rip off the feel of that song. We set out to make a song you want to do spin class to.”

Versteeg also revealed to ELLE that “for the first half of Hollerado’s career, Annie was a struggling actress” and that during that time she went on tour with the band, sometimes sang onstage, and wrote the lyrics to one of their popular songs “Good Day At The Races.”

He takes hardships in stride

As Hollerado’s Twitter account documented, Murphy and Versteeg’s apartment in Toronto burned down in 2013.

No one was hurt, the band later revealed.

“I was so nervous calling the insurance company,” Versteeg told HuffPost then. “I know I’ve been paying it, but I don’t know what that means. I think it’s really going to be okay. I’m not worried at all. It’s just stuff.”

He’s a mental health advocate

In a 2019 profile in The Globe and Mail, said he’d wanted to seek mental healthcare in the past, but he couldn’t afford it. Once Murphy landed with Schitt’s Creek, Versteeg started seeing a therapist.

“I’m like, ‘This stuff actually works,'” he told the publication. “It’s not witchcraft! I would’ve loved this when I was 22.”

Once Versteeg saw how much therapy had done for him, he wanted to help other musicians get the mental health help they need. With that in mind, he created a mental-health fund for all the artists represented by Royal Mountain Records.

“You go to the doctor to get a checkup for your body,” he said. “Why getting a checkup for your head isn’t seen as just as important blows my mind.”
