“I did a lot of research, largely about the comedy scene of the ‘50s,” says Rachel Brosnahan of her role in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. “I needed to do a deep dive into comedy, I studied every comedian – male and female – I could get my hands on. Phyllis Diller, Carole Burnett. I’m a research nerd; I’m still researching and learning more things, which is fun.

Ellen DeGeneres and Kevin Hart drew criticism for an interview that aired Friday during which DeGeneres asked Hart to reconsider his decision to back out of hosting the 2019 Oscars. DeGeneres told Hart that she had called The Academy and been told they would be “thrilled” if he took back the job. Of online critics who attacked Hart for years-earlier derogatory jokes about gay people, DeGeneres said, “Don’t pay attention to them. They are a small group of people who are very, very loud. We are a huge group of people who love you and want you to host the Oscars.” While Hart told DeGeneres he would “assess” the suggestion, Deadline reports he is unlikely to change his mind, concerned about being a distraction and the lack of preparation time.
