The always dramz-filled “Women Tell All” episode featured many of Season 20’s most memorable females…and one unforgettable fowl. Sheila—who appeared on The Bachelor alongside her owner and professional “chicken enthusiast” Tiara—demonstrated an impressive B.S. detector, letting out a giant squuuaaaaaaaaaaaawwwk when the duplicitous Leah tried to deflect the blame for her backstabbing.“She doesn’t like liars,” Tiara explained of her BBFF’s outburst (which we’re pretty sure was poultrygese for “give me a clucking break.”) Related note: You know you’re dealing with a pack of nitwits when a chicken gets in the best jab of the night.

The Book of Negros actress mixed style with substance on Sunday’s CSA red carpet, wearing a gown emblazoned with the message “President Obama Take It Down.” “It” is the confederate flag that currently flies over the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington. Ellis deserves props for her passion and also for momentarily stealing the spotlight away from that insufferable attention hog (jk, jk) Jacob Tremblay.

And the Oscar for best impersonation of an Oscar winner goes to…. The “Break Free” singer absolutely nailed her impersonation of Jennifer Lawrence in a skit where everyone’s favourite everygirl appeared on Family Feud. Grande’s rendering of Lawrence’s voice was perfection. Even better—her willingness to deliver on a joke that is basically eye-rolling the most powerful celebrity on the planet. We love you J.Law, but the “I’m just like you, guys” shtick is well past its prime.
