The calendar may have turned to a long holiday weekend, but the drama continues.

Here comes the bride… again!
For the touching pic, she wrote:
"'We are most alive when we're in love.' -John Updike Happy Valentine's Day!"
Too cute! Miz Davis and Julius Tennon exchanged their vows for the second time on February 13 after being married for 12 years.
Color us impressed! And it seems the love birds weren't the only ones excited to celebrate their nuptials 2.0, as the Emmy nominee took to the social media site earlier in the day to share a snap of her smiling daughter.
It's the annual Vanity Fair Hollywood issue!
And we're proud to report that it's a little more diverse than previous years.
The issue is known for almost always relegating actors of color into the foldout cover so they don't appear on the actual front page, but this time Viola Davis gets to share it with Jennifer Lawrence, Jane Fonda, and Cate Blanchett.
Progress, we guess.
There are also gorgeous individual portraits of all the women shot by Annie Leibovitz, which you can find in the gallery (above)!
But first, watch a clip of the women talking about their hoped-for legacies (below):
Someone had to say it!
The actor took home TWO awards for his roles in Beasts of No Nation and Luther!
But when he got out on stage for a third time to introduce the Beasts of No Nation's ensemble nomination — he decided to throw some subtle, yet classy shade at the Oscars!
Right after Viola Davis won the trophy for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series, Elba went on stage with his costar Abraham Attah and called out the Academy's all-white acting nominees! He said:
"Ladies and gentleman, welcome to diverse TV."
After getting majorly snubbed for Best Supporting Actor with the Oscar nominees this year, we don't think there's anyone better to make that dig!
What did YOU think of the shady moment?
We aren't too shocked that Miz Davis took home the prize at the Hollywood event since she won this year's Emmy Award. LOVES it!
However, the competition was certainly steep this year as the 50-year-old was up against Claire Danes in Homeland, Julianna Margulies in The Good Wife, Maggie Smith in Downton Abbey, and Robin Wright in House of Cards. Keep doing you, girl!
Ch-ch-check out her speech for yourself (above)!
And take a look at the ongoing winners list HERE!
Curse those wrinkles!
The actress was still gorgeous though, and the details on her dress were exquisite — from the origami folds to the off-shoulder silhouette!
That dusty lilac color was also easy on the eyes.
Are you willing to overlook the wrinkles, Perezcious readers???

"'Cause I'm gonna be on vacation."
However, just because the acclaimed actress isn't officially boycotting the ceremony, that doesn't mean she's okay with the lack of diversity in this year's nominations.
But, the gorgeous gal explained that the awards show itself isn't the actual issue at hand, saying:
"The problem is not with the Oscars. The problem is with the Hollywood movie-making system."
The How To Get Away With Murder star elaborated:
"How many black films are being produced every year? How are they being distributed? The films that are being made, are the big-time producers thinking outside of the box in terms of how to cast the role? Can you cast a black woman in that role? Can you cast a black man in that role?"
The fierce female vented that there just aren't enough opportunities available and that's the real root of the problem, dishing:
"The problem isn't even our pay. You could probably line up all the A-List black actresses out there [and] they probably don't make what one A-List white woman makes in one film. That's the problem. You can change the Academy, but if there are no black films being produced, what is there to vote for?"
"Like I said, the Oscars are not really the issue. It's a symptom of a much greater disease. But if he does [host], I hope he takes it as an opportunity to make a statement, a social statement about change. It's 2016."
We think that would be a good way for him to keep his commitment and still make a statement! What do U think, Perezcious readers?
