Lizzo Is an Entertainer of the Year

EW’s Entertainers of the Year include LizzoAwkwafina, Renée Zellweger, Regina King, Taika Waititi and the cast of Succession.  I love how everyone is lusting over the Jeremy Strong pic. I don’t see it as Kendall but his real life photo shoots bring a whole other energy. Also, Sarah Snook talks in her adorable real accent in the video and she so wonderfully perky and un-Shiv-like.

-Time also named Lizzo the entertainer of the year. My Spotify Wrapped rankings would agree.

-Well, it now makes more sense why Justin Timberlake broke his silence on the affair rumours long after the story had died down. According to Us Weekly, “Jessica encouraged Justin to put out his statement on Instagram because she felt embarrassed by his actions and wanted him to take accountability.” People is quoting a source who says Jessica will stand by her man: “Obviously Justin drank too much this time, but Jessica believes he didn’t cheat on her. What’s most important to her in life is her family and being the best mom to Silas. She’ll never break up her family over something like this.”

-Meanwhile, Bette Midler wants Justin Timberlake to publicly apologize to Janet Jackson. Don’t we all?

-The SAG nominations were announced today. It’s insane that Knives Out isn’t nominated for ensemble cast, but good on the cast of Parasite for making the cut (I finally saw that movie and holy s%$# it’s amazing).

Harvey Weinstein and his former studio have a tentative $25 million deal with his accusers. Weinstein, accused of offenses ranging from sexual harassment to rape, won’t have to apologize, admit wrongdoing or pay his own money.

-How did I miss all the GIFs of Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s penis this week? (NSFW, obvs)

-As we recover from the first half of the CW crossover (which just isn’t as fun as they usually are, no?) here’s the first trailer for the CW’s newest superhero show Stargirl, starring Luke Wilson.

-Look, I don’t even go here but why is the Star Wars cast shading Rian Johnson and The Last Jedi? He did what he had to do.

-Holy cow the trailer for Promising Young Woman, starring Carey Mulligan, looks amazing! It costars Connie Britton, Molly Shannon, Alison Brie, Adam Brody and Max Greenfield.

Tiffany Haddish, Salma Hayek and Rose Byrne Get Bossy in Instyle

Tiffany Haddish Salma Hayek Rose Byrne

Tiffany HaddishSalma Hayek and Rose Byrne cover InStyle to promote their new movie Like A Boss (the new trailer made me lol).

Celine Dion is in Toronto tonight (I’m kicking myself for not getting tickets) but this photo is priceless — much like the ring she’s wearing.

Cara Delevingne tweeted that she was no longer dating Ashley Benson, but then deleted the tweet. So are they still together? And if they’re not, who gets the sex swing??!

-Quibi remains a mystery to me, but good for the Amell cousins.

-It’s been a big few weeks for Supergirl stars speaking openly about difficult personal matters. Chyler Leigh shared that she’s bi-polar.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus reflected on her SNL days during a sit-down with Stephen Colbert: “I didn’t understand how the dynamics of the place worked. It was very, very sexist. People were doing crazy drugs. I was oblivious; I just thought, ‘oh wow, he’s got a lot of energy.'”

-This site is doing a Pride & Prejudice rewatch and it’s such a daily happy-maker!

Jack Black forgot that he was in The Holiday. I wish I could too.

-On last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Show, he had a wax statue made of himself and then he left it around the office, startling his staff members — especially his cousin. The end killed me.

Seven more women have accused Cuba Gooding Jr. of groping and sexual misconduct, bringing the current tally to 22.

Nick Cannon spent most of yesterday annoying Eminem on Twitter before he dropped another diss track. But why tho?

-Former star T.J. Miller weighed in on the Silicon Valley finale — first as himself and then in character. God, he’s not even on the show anymore and he’s still exhausting.

-This is Us’ Justin Hartley’s divorce continues to get messy.

-Aw man, the lead singer of Roxette passed away.

January Jones plays a scary skating mom in the trailer for Netflix’s new figure skating drama Spinning Out. Wait, did they recreate Tessa Virtue’s Olympic dress?

Daniel Radcliffe‘s time period comedy has a new trailer.The portrait bit made me chuckle.

-The Ghostbusters trailer has arrived. I dunno — do we really need a dark and somber GB?

Beyonce Takes Questions from Fans

Beyonce-Elle-January-Cover

Beyonce did an interview! Kinda! She answered questions in Elle that were sent in via email and social media. And she almost certainly answered them via email. Ok, so not really an interview at all then but still! Beyonce speaks! The topics range from everything from shopping at Target to giving to charities to surviving miscarriages.

-People are really upset that Lizzo showed off her butt at the Lakers game with a thong dress. I mean, it got her name trending just as she was dropping a new video so good on her?

Chrissy Teigen did an impromptu Twitter Q&A session and she was remarkably candid about celeb life, opening up about hired help, free clothing, secret social accounts, paparazzi and more.

Daisy Ridley is getting a lot of (justified) flack for her obliviousness and confusion when an interviewer asked her about her privilege.

-The Golden Globes are always dumb but this morning’s nominations were especially dumb. No women were nominated for best director or screenplay. On the TV side, they somehow loved The Morning Show and Catch-22 but shut out Watchmen, Veep, Barry, When They See Us and Schitt’s Creek. A huge surprise was Cats getting shut out of the major categories even though the HFPA screened it — and it seemed like the perfect film for the Golden Globes.

-I watched A Marriage Story and while I refuse to get sucked into the ‘whose side was it on?’ conversation, I can wholeheartedly say that my favourite bit was this Merritt Wever scene: part 1, part 2.

Miley Cyrus, who’s in the middle of getting a divorce from Liam Hemsworth, got a new tattoo that says “Freedom.”

-God bless Pajiba for reminding us all of the time Adrien Brody bought a castle for Elsa Pataky, then they did a 35-page spread exclusive for Hello! about it, then she dumped him for Chris Hemsworth.

-The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is asking the filmmakers behind Richard Jewell to release a statement acknowledging it took dramatic license when it portrayed their journalist Kathy Scruggs as trading sex for scoops. I’m actually surprised that Olivia Wilde, who plays the late Scruggs, has been defending the movie’s use of this tired, terrible trope, seeing as she’s the daughter of two journalists.

-Say what you will about Ryan Reynolds (and ohh boy, I have) but he sure knows how to capitalize on a social media trend. His gin company hired the Peloton commercial wife for their latest ad.

-Meanwhile, Ryan is stuck in a video game in the first trailer for Free Guy.

-The Wonder Woman 1984 trailer has arrived and it’s glorious.
