@jessicakiang Did Terry & June also spend hours in the bathroom scraping at their fingers with acetone and a dinner knife? @cormacwobrien Yeah, I don't think the film will be affected at all, and didn't say otherwise!If you're looking to make a quiet Tuesday night at home instantly more chaotic and challenging, accidentally punctu… busy not to find time to contribute to this growing body of work.
Retweeted by Guy Lodge @tomandlorenzo No idea why autocorrect capitalised "gowns", but I'll allow it -- they do look like very all-caps gowns. @ericbialas Of course there could.

Retweeted by Guy Lodge @tomandlorenzo A resounding yea. @swimmingfishes Yeah, a real triumph for the casting director there.It's nice that Paul Mescal's older brother lent him a suit for the BAFTAs. @ScottFeinberg Michelle Williams, for one more month. @CasparSalmon Really enjoying the straight people completely overlooking your joke. @alexvtunzelmann Black tie weddings are naff enough (even though I love wearing a tux). A WHITE tie wedding is a whole other level. @CasparSalmon A rare moment where she actually captured public sentiment — who wouldn't sacrifice Sarah Vine for the greater good? @HannaFlint Yeah, it's a crock. @ben1283 Yes, I'm not sure this is quite the great leveller they think (or claim to think) it is.For what it's worth, I don't think Ellen would be a big fan of PROXIMA. @DanGreen1986 And letters — it's the new "Best wishes" @naijaprince21 It does feel very pointed! Maybe his ex is a big fan. @mellyfratelli That would be because they are correct, sorry.Also, an exciting first glimpse of the anti-masker lobby infiltrating film review comments.

I don't either, but that's because you're Sarah Vine. @CasparSalmon Yep, she was SO clearly on a whole different plane from her co-stars. @alicelowe I can imagine. Trying to think where I first saw him now. @alicelowe A solid system!Please wear Masks. I wear gloves 2

Retweeted by Guy Lodge @kpfallon It's very good.No, it's just you being wrong about something, guys

Retweeted by Guy LodgeWeird choice of film to celebrate it, but OK @katerbland @russfischer It wasn't, until Beyoncé brought it into the mainstream. @BillMccuddy In the UK, sorry. @jessicakiang @CarloChatrian Aw, you babe. @MickBrooks666 Don't go if you're nervous: the film itself is not emotionally relaxing!

I can't promise all my tweets will be so rewarding, but I do my best. @CasparSalmon If she likes this, she'd love Folklore @AmeliaJoyofLife I agree. @BurnStephan Proxima is a much better film. @ben1283 And she chose well. @nathanielr On reading this list, my first thought was, "Wait, what did Jacki Weaver get her third nomination for?"Until yesterday, it was THE HUNT. Now it's UNHINGED. Clearly I have no interest in saving myself. @trim_obey Thank you! My thoughts exactly.Why risk your health going to the gym when you could just do Zsa Zsa Gabor's workout video
