Felicity Huffman Is Already Free

Felicity Huffman is out of jail early after serving 11 days of her 2-week sentence. (Apparently it’s normal policy for inmates who are set to be released on weekends to get out on the Friday instead.)

-Oh god. Drake and Kylie Jenner were apparently spotted flirting. There’s not enough vodka in the world for me to process this.

-After many false starts, Kanye West’s latest full-length album, Jesus Is King, finally dropped this afternoon and it’s pretty damn underwhelming.

-Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian says their 6-six-year daughter is being “heavily blocked” from wearing makeup by Kanye. I never say this, but I agree with Kanye.

-CW just ordered full season pickups for Batwoman and Nancy Drew. I tried one episode of ND and it was too Riverdale-y for me, but good for them.

-No one has ever looked happier about being arrested than Ted Danson.

-Will & Grace is wrapping up, but Megan Mullally is reportedly set to miss multiple episodes, giving more weight to those rumours of a feud with Debra Messing.

Michelle Williams Urges Pay Equity In Emmy Speech

-If you missed last night’s Emmy Awards, you’re going to want to watch Michelle Williams’ powerful speech.

-The Emmy telecast was an awkward, disjointed mess but they ended up handing out a lot of great awards (and best of all, didn’t deliver the predicted Game of Thrones sweep). There was also a handful of unintentionally hilarious moments, like when Gwyneth Paltrow struggled to walk across the stage in her dress, or when the audience openly laughed at Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner for saying their reality show featured “real people just being themselves, telling real stories unscripted and unfiltered.”

-This photo of Pheobe Waller-Bridge at an Emmy afterparty is a goddamn MOOD.

-On the Emmys red carpet last night, Terrance Howard said he’s retiring from acting because he’s unlocked mathematical secrets and he wants to share them with the world. “I’ve made some discoveries in my own personal life with the science that Pythagoras was searching for. I was able to open up the Flower of Life properly and find the real wave conjugations that we’ve been looking for for 10,000 years…On Tuesday when I receive my star [on the Hollywood Walk of Fame] I’m going to be able to prove that gravity is an effect and not a force.” Uh huh.

-When asked about Shane Gillis’ firing from SNL, Bill Hader said: “I feel like you shouldn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. Especially in comedy, you do stuff six or seven years ago that wouldn’t be okay now for good reason so I only speak for myself but, like anybody, you have to grow. I think it’s a good thing.” That guy’s a good egg.

-Disney CEO Bob Iger says they put out too many Star Wars movies too fast. Gee, ya think?

-In his new memoir, Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness opens up about childhood abuse and reveals he’s HIV-positive.

-This partnership between Jennifer Lawrence and Amazon’s wedding registry is … unexpected.

Kit Harington has a good strategy for dodging questions about the widely disliked Game of Thrones finale: he says he doesn’t have an opinion because he hasn’t even seen it. Smarter than he looks, that one.

-If Brad Pitt found out about my fangirling of him, I would not have handled it as well as Dax Shepard did.

-Just in case you need a reminder: Chris Pratt remains the worst Chris.

Jessie J debuted a new love she wrote about Channing Tatum, so that’s still happening.

-Stars could not stop drooling over Jennifer Lopez‘s video of her in the green dress. Celebs — they’re just like us!

Jonah Hill is in talks to play a villain in The Batman opposite Robert Pattinson — maybe the Penguin.

-Downton Abbey won the weekend box office, proving that older moviegoers can still flex their money muscles.

Ryan Murphy‘s new Netflix show The Politician, starring Ben Platt and Gwyneth Paltrow, is getting good reviews.

Kat Dennings deserves a good TV show, and Hulu’s Dollface, produced by Margot Robbie, might finally be it judging by this trailer.

-I’m still on the fence about whether or not we need the Breaking Bad movie, but damn there’s nothing like a tearful Jesse Pinkman to hit me right in my heart guts.

Mandy Moore just dropped the music video for her first new song in over a decade.

Scaachi‘s excellent Buzzfeed profile of Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca is what everyone is talking about today. It’s a roller coaster ride of an article that started being about Duca’s new book and her Twitter fame, and ended up being about how her entire NYU summer class filing a formal complaint against her. This line took my breath away: “Congratulations, you thrillingly, thrillingly adept journalist, you have discovered that Lauren Duca is not perfect. Put it in the headline, baby.”

-The new Last Christmas trailer does nothing to allay fears that Henry Golding is playing a ghost or angel.
