-Entertainment Weekly just named Jennifer Lawrence Entertainer of the Year. Not surprising — and much deserved (I assume it was a close race between her and Chris Pratt). You know what this means, right? The 2015 best-of lists are starting! It really is the most wonderful time of the year…

-Meanwhile, Jennifer Lawrence elevated all of our #squadgoals by hanging out with Adele and Emma Stone last night.

-Usually Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt standing next to each other would make for a banner day, but their bad hair is too distracting to fully embrace the yum.

-In today’s ‘Hollywood Has Run Out of Ideas’ news: Kevin Bacon will star in a Tremors TV show, and  Tom Cruise is in talks to star in a reboot of The Mummy.

-In other Cruise-adjacent news, Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx are still a thing, in case anyone cares.

Kaley Cuoco tattooed an ill-advised giant bug on her back to cover up her ill-advised wedding date tattoo.

-A 7-year-old schooled the Star Wars cast on trivia during Jimmy Kimmel‘s last night.

-The best part about THR’s actors roundtable was that it taught me that Mark Ruffalo‘s first acting gig was on Canadian drama Due South!

-Geek gods/awesome human beings Felicia Day and Jonah Ray just signed on to the Mystery Science Theatre 3000 reboot.

-There’s a Friday Night Lights musical happening and Scott Porter is playing Coach and Mae Whitman is publicly petitioning for a part and I need to move to LA right now!

-Apparently the CW has given up on ratings since it’s ordered more Crazy Ex-Girlfriend which has been coming in as low as 0.2 in the demo. (My guess is they just don’t have anything else to pair Jane the Virgin with.) They also ordered more iZombie — but not a full season, which is a shame. That show is like the network version of Jessica Jones (in a good way).

Gwyneth Paltrow‘s kids get to eat at places like The Lion on the regular and now I hate my life.

Sherri Shepherd has been ordered to keep paying child support for the baby she had via surrogate — even though she wants nothing to do with the child and claims her ex only went ahead with the pregnancy plans to wring money out of her. Ugh, that poor kid.

Justin Bieber has pulled out of a series of appearances this week due to “personal reasons.”

-I really like Sepinwall’s new article on the advantage of episodes vs. serialization on TV.

-Set your DVRs: Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans will assemble on Jimmy Kimmel tonight.

-I’m not gonna lie; I spent way too much time examining Kylie Jenner’s face in the first photo of this feature.

-This is a great piece on season 2 of The Leftovers, which has somehow managed to win me back after I gave up on the first season by getting really, really weird. As the writer of this piece tweeted, it’s like they said “What if Lost could be super weird & fucked up & not write to act breaks & not worry about ratings?”

-I didn’t even know Samantha Bee had a new show coming out but I’m so in!
