“Scorsese is doing films for Netflix, Sandler is doing dramas!” Plaza’s Garland stated, poking enjoyable on the state of unbiased movie.

Then, after a short make-out session with Garland, Plaza went on stage to sing a rendition of Garland’s “Get Happy,” earlier than she referred to as out particular person attendees like Jennifer Lopez, Adam Sandler, Idina Menzel and Renée Zellweger.
