By the end of awards season, we’ve heard seemingly endless stories about how Gary Oldman transformed himself into Winston Churchill, how Greta Gerwig drew on her own high-school experience to create Lady Bird, and possibly everything Timothée Chalamet has ever done in his life. But how about the story of the grand entrance Jennifer Lawrence accidentally made into a bar full of people who were clapping for Jordan Peele? Or how Judd Apatow helped Jimmy Kimmel with his Oscars opening monologue?
On this week’s episode of Little Gold Men,Vanity Fair’s Hollywood correspondent Nicole Sperling joins to share what happened at the Oscars that you didn’t see on TV. Nicole had a ticket to the awards, but like many other attendees, she spent a good portion of the night lingering at the bar—where Laurie Metcalf hung out after losing the supporting-actress statuette to Allison Janney, and where everyone was extremely confused when, as part of Kimmel’s skit, Gal Gadot and Guillermo del Toro came rushing into the lobby together. Nicole and Mike Hogan also share some of their favorite stories from the Vanity Fair Oscar party, including a long conversation between Peele and Martin McDonagh, and Katey Rich and Richard Lawson wrap up the season as a whole, including predictions about which of this year’s Oscar losers will be the first to win a statuette. (Here’s looking at you, Saoirse.)
Listen to this week’s episode above, and don’t go anywhere! At Little Gold Men, there’s no such thing as an off-season. We’ll be back next week, and every week after, with more discussions of what’s happening in Hollywood, which movies are worth your time, and plenty of deep dives into the Emmy race—where the statuettes may not be gold men, but the awards-campaign process is just as fascinating.

The hundreds of blue light glasses and tech neck creams on the market have probably clued you in: technology can do some damage to our bodies. And sadly, your thumbs aren't immune to the issue, either.
Yes, "texting thumb" is an actual injury.
According to Arnold-Peter C. Weiss, M.D. fellowship-trained hand surgeon, orthopedic hand surgeon, and professor of orthopedics, texting thumb can be defined as an "irritation of the flexor tendons of the thumb that move the joints from too much texting with one's thumb."
So, what are the symptoms of this tech-induced ailment?
Dr. John Gallucci, Jr., MS, ATC, PT, DPT, and the CEO of JAG-One Physical Therapy, said he commonly sees this issue in his practice, and it usually manifests as pain in the thumb that runs up the wrist and forearm.
"Pain is typically noticed during flexion of the wrist, or when making a fist or grabbing something," he explained.
The good news? The fix is relatively simple and straightforward. Dr. Weiss said you'll want to rest your thumb, and that anti-inflammatory medications and some ice can help.
Dr. Gallucci also recommended slowing down the pace at which one texts, utilizing another finger, or simply making a phone call when texts become lengthy. If physical therapy is required, Dr. Gallucci explaiRead More – Source
