-Charlize Theron reportedly demanded that she be paid the same as Chris Hemsworth on their upcoming Snow White prequel, The Huntsman. Good on her.

Joaquin Phoenix doesn’t care about the Golden Globes, but he cares a lot about co-host Amy Poehler. The line forms behind me, buddy.

-Consider yourself warned, Cosby supporters. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are going after him at the Globes.

-Also, let’s not forget that Sunday’s Globes could resurrect Fey and Poehler‘s prank war with George Clooney.

-Speaking of George at the Globes, it’s expected to be Amal‘s first big red carpet outing. Let’s hope the guys in Clooney’s camp that she supposedly doesn’t like stay far, far away.

-I liked this article on the rise of the female showrunner. Four of the five shows nominated for the Globes’ Best TV Comedy category are created by women, which is pretty damn rad.

-For some reason a bunch of shows are debuting returning on Sunday night (why can’t shows take a night off when they co-incide with a big awards show?!). Out of all of them (Shameless, Looking, Girls, etc.) the one that’s getting the most critical love is the new HBO show Togetherness.

-Here’s the Season 2 promo for Last Week Tonight. I’m especially looking forward to the crime-fighting pony!

Justin Bieber got a penis enhancement, and he didn’t even have to click on one of those shady emails that fill up your spam folder.

-Also, Mark Wahlberg‘s wife is totes unimpressed by Bieber’s junk.

-Holy crap. The Wet Hot American Summer series is actually going ahead, and most of the movie’s original cast will be in it.

-Oh sweet baby jesus, they might be dragging Batman v. Superman into two parts.

-Here’s the latest trailer for Map to the Stars. I saw it at TIFF and didn’t love it, but still found it super engrossing.

-Check out the new trailer for Neill Blomkamp’s upcoming movie Chappie, starring Hugh Jackman.
