Eddie Redmayne, Jessie Buckley and “The Crown’s” Emma Corrin are among those nominated for the U.K.’s most prestigious theater awards, the Olivier Awards.
Redmayne and Buckley were both nominated for best actor awards for “Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club” while Corrin was nominated for “Anna X” at Harold Pinter Theatre.
“Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club” received eleven nominations in total, the most for any one show. Lolita Chakrabarti’s stage adaptation of “Life of Pi” received nine nominations while “Anything Goes,” which starred Sutton Foster and Robert Lindsay, also received nine.
The awards come at the end of a difficult two years of London’s West End, with COVID resulting in multiple delays and even cancellations to theater productions.
The awards, which are produced by the Society of London Theatre (SOLT), will take place on April 10 in London at the Royal Albert Hall. They will be hosted by comedian Jason Manford.
‘I want to offer enormous congratulations to all the 2022 Olivier Awards nominees,” said Julian Bird, chief executive of SOLT. “This year’s fantastic array truly demonstrates the breadth and diversity of London’s world-leading theatre industry, and its extraordinary creativity and resilience during an extremely challenging period for our sector. After a two-year hiatus, we are delighted to be able to bring the theatre community together again to celebrate our brightest talents. I’m sure the atmosphere in the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 10 April will be absolutely electric.”

Today, we bring you a throwback to the time when Blake & Ryan not only gave us couple goals but also major fashion goals at the Met Gala 2014 where they walked straight out of a Disney movie and made us fall in love with them all over again. Scroll below to see their pictures.
The couple was dressed in Gucci from head to toe and looked charming as ever together. Blake wore an extraordinary Gucci Première gown in blush pink colour which was giving a full retro Hollywood glam look. The entire gown had sequins work on it with a plunging neckline and the fitting of the same highlighted her hourglass figure.
Blake Lively’s gown had a train attached to it and well, we can now say that she loves a little drama on the red carpet and enjoys massive trains and veils at the length of her glamorous gowns. The Gossip Girl actress accessorised her look with minimalistic jewellery in pink colour with just a statement ring and earrings.
Ryan Reynolds on the other hand wore a dapper tuxedo by Gucci. It was a custom made midnight blue velvet tuxedo which he styled with a bow tie.
Take a look at their pictures here:

The Game Arm Wrestles Mike Tyson and Appears to Win
The Game and former heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson recently had a trippy arm-wrestling match where the Compton, Calif. rapper appeared to come out on top.
On Wednesday (May 25), the Hotboxin With Mike Tyson podcast released behind-the-scenes video of an upcoming episode featuring The Game. In the clip, the rapper and boxer engage in a tense but brief arm-wrestling match. In the clip, the two men are sitting on a couch and Tyson has a lit joint in his mouth. Game starts to get the best of Tyson from the jump, before the boxer sees that he is losing and decided to put some extra oomph in his effort.
“Ayo, Mike, chill!” Game yells. “It’s a tie, muthafucka.”
Earlier, Game admitted he was high on shrooms and weed provided by Mike during the encounter. “Mike got me on shrooms, too, y’all. If I’m spaced out for the rest of the day, it’s this nigga fault.”
He added: “Mike got me high as shit, man.”
In an Instagram post, The Game bragged about his apparent triumph. “I beat @MikeTyson arm wrestling & before you get started in the comments… he told me this eye to eye after it was over.”
Game asserted he took it easy on the 55-year-old boxer. “I went light on em in the end cause I love him & I found it in my heart to let him come back lol…Not to mention, he leaning in with his whole body, n pulling on the couch arm… strong ass nigga ha ha ha.”
Check out video of The Game and Mike Tyson’s encounter and arm-wrestling match below.

BTS to Meet With President Biden to Discuss Anti-Asian Hate Crimes
President Joe Biden will welcome superstar South Korean group BTS to the White House on Tuesday to “discuss Asian inclusion and representation” and to “address anti-Asian hate crimes and discrimination,” according to an announcement from the White House released Thursday.
Biden and the group “will also discuss the importance of diversity and inclusion and BTS’ platform as youth ambassadors who spread a message of hope and positivity across the world,” the statement continues.
The visit by BTS will take place on May 31, the final day of Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
As noted by Politico, the president has been active during the month. He issued a presidential proclamation on April 29 about AANHPI Heritage Month, and he and Vice President Kamala Harris — who is half Filipino — hosted a White House reception earlier in the month that included U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai.
Two days later, the White House lauded the passage of legislation to establish a commission to study the possible creation of a National Museum of Asian Pacific American History and Culture.
In recent months the president has welcomed several performers, including Olivia Rodrigo and the Jonas Brothers, to the White House, most often as part of vaccination efforts.
“I am beyond honored and humbled to be here today to help spread the message about the importance of youth vaccination,” Rodrigo said in a press conference. “I’m in awe of the work President Biden and Dr. Fauci have done and was happy to help lend my support to this important initiative.”
Rodrigo continued, “It’s important to have conversations with friends and family members, encouraging all communities to get vaccinated and actually get to a vaccination site, which you can do more easily than ever before given how many sites we have and how easy it is to find them at vaccines.gov.”
