It’s the second week of awards season and the frontrunners are already starting to emerge after the Critics Choice Awards. The Crown once again swept the TV drama category, with stars Gillian Anderson, 52, Emma Corrin, 25 and Josh O’Connor, 30, walking away winners, and the show taking out Best Drama. While Nomadland director Chloé Zhao, 38, continued her historic run, becoming the first Chinese woman to win Best Director and Adapted Screenplay, before receiving the top honour, Best Picture. The cutest winner of the night was Minari star Alan Kim, who took home the Best Young Actor award. The eight-year-old was so overcome with emotion while thanking his family, he burst into tears.

secret palace talks the royals’ risky road forward

It was short and to the point. Released a day and a half after the TV interview with Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, that has shaken the monarchy, the 61-word statement from the Queen read, “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan. “The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.” Her Majesty made sure she stressed her affection for her grandson and his family by ending with, “Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members.” For the Queen to even issue a statement like this is highly unusual. Normally she sticks to a policy…

The bombshell revelations just kept coming during Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah.

stacey & scotty we treasure each other

They may be the hosts of a new television series about New Zealand treasures, but when the Weekly visits the home of Stacey and Scotty Morrison, it’s clear that this is a couple who deeply cherish each other. Welcoming the team inside, Scotty has scones for everyone and the couple’s four-year-old griffon-Sydney silky cross Ziggy is doing his best to get everyone’s attention, until Stacey reprimands him in Maori. In the Morrison household, even the dog understands te reo. As we sit around the kitchen’s island bench, the couple frequently exchange laughs and meaningful glances as they share the stories behind two items whose history has a special place in their hearts. “Things aren’t important,” says Stacey, 47. “But it’s about taonga, or valuable treasure, and however you perceive that to be.

ange’s big pay day

Their bitter divorce battle has been going on for five years now and Angelina Jolie has just made a big move in ridding her life of Brad Pitt. At an auction in London last week, the 45-year-old actress walked away with $16m after she sold a Winston Churchill painting. The pricey artwork was a gift from Brad, 57, that he gave her during happier times in their relationship. The artwork, To wer of the Koutoubia Mosque, was painted by the former British prime minister as a gift for President Roosevelt. It had many owners after its life in the Whitehouse and even wound up in a closet for 15 years before it found its way into Brad’s hands. Not only was the sale a big score for the Salt beauty, but it also…
