Don't Sweat Oscar Academy Snub
... Kobe Will Get In!!
6/22/2018 12:10 PM PDT
Kobe Bryant's ex-teammate is going to bat for the future NBA Hall of Famer ... with Matt Barnes telling TMZ Sports Kobe will end up in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences someway, somehow.
Remember, Bryant was just denied entry into the exclusive club, despite winning the Academy Award for Best Animated Short for "Dear Basketball."
Barnes was at an Athletes vs. Cancer event at Skybar on Thursday where he told us Kobe's bounced back from far worse Ls in his career ... and he expects to see the same thing with the Academy membership.
"They're gonna make it tough on him, but I know he's a hard worker," Barnes told us ... "One way or another, he'll end up in there."
For the record ... Kobe did win two NBA championships AFTER losing two (he finished with five rings total) ... so, sounds like Barnes might be on to something here.
Rumer WillisWage Gap Battle Bigger ProblemThan Wahlberg, Williams 1/11/2018 7:00 AM PST EXCLUSIVE
Rumer Willis isn't exactly giving Mark Wahlberg a pass in the wage gap battle, but she thinks everyone's missing the point by making this about his payday.
Rumer and a friend were shopping Rodeo in Bev Hills Wednesday when she weighed in on the issue that has Hollywood and America pissed off ... Mark getting $1.5 million, compared to Michelle Williams getting less than $1,000 for "All the Money in the World" reshoots.
It's worth noting ... Rumer's mom, Demi Moore, was one of the first women to earn an 8-figure paycheck for a single movie, so ya gotta think she's been schooled on wage disparity in Hollywood.
Her take? Back off Wahlberg ... attack the system!

Tonya Harding and director Tommy Wiseau walk into a Golden Globes party ... nope, not the start of a one-liner, but something that actually happened.
The duo took this pic at a party Sunday, after the award show where both were thanked by actors who portrayed them in movies about their lives.
James Franco invited Tommy onstage after winning best actor in a comedy for his role in "The Disaster Artist" ... a movie based on Tommy making "The Room" -- largely considered the best worst movie ever made.
Kinda funny ... Tommy tried grabbing the mic as James started his thank-you speech.
Oh, hai! It took a while, but @TommyWiseau just made it on the stage at the #GoldenGlobes as James Franco accepts his award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy. pic.twitter.com/9ticZ4cHVb

Patty HearstFox Axes Biopic ProjectAfter She Blasts It 1/11/2018 5:09 PM PST Breaking News
Patty Hearst's scathing criticism of the upcoming film and TV projects about her life wasn't taken lightly ... Fox just pulled the plug on its film project.
20th Century Fox Film announced Thursday afternoon it's cancelling its planned biopic about Hearst based on the book "American Heiress" by Jeffrey Toobin after she blasted the project and the author for glorifying her rape and torture.
Patty told us she especially took issue with Toobin allegedly referring to his book as "the last word on the subject." She says, "It was offensive to me that a man would have the audacity to tell a woman that he would have the last word on her trauma."
Hearst also took issue with Toobin's book citing one of its main sources as one of Patty's captors, and calling her abduction a "rollicking adventure."
While Fox has cancelled the movie project, an upcoming docuseries on CNN is still set ..

Drake's Houston team has a warning for fans about a new documentary on his rise to fame -- they have absolutely nothing to do with it, despite how it seems in a clip going viral.
The video was put together by a guy who goes by MarQuis Trill on Instagram, and he claims he's produced a documentary called "Toronto to Houston" -- featuring several Drake performances and interviews. MarQuis claims the film he directed and edited is coming out in the summer, and that Rap-A-Lot Records is down with the production.
We're told that's just not true.
Our Drake sources say neither Jas Prince nor Drake participated in the documentary. Ditto for James Prince and anyone at Rap-A-Lot. We're told all the interview clips used in the trailer were pulled from previously released productions.
Our sources also say MarQuis' claim on Twitter that he'll be shooting footage inside ..

One of the women accusing James Franco of sexual assault is blasting critics who have latched on to a comment she made ... that she likes to ruin lives.
Violet Paley has claimed Franco forced her head into his lap while his penis was exposed. She told the L.A. Times she and Franco were in a consensual, sexual relationship when they were sitting in a car and he pressured her into performing oral sex on him -- something she had not done to him before. Paley, an aspiring filmmaker, says, "The power dynamic was really off."
Franco has said the allegation is not true, but would not elaborate.
