-First Beyonce announced her pregnancy, and now she’s released a whole bunch of images from her photoshoot. She really is single-handedly saving this year…

Mariah Carey offered her congratulations to Beyonce (while reminding the world that she had twins first).

THR’s cover story on Girls is great, depending on your Lena Dunham tolerance. She talks about starting with HBO (“It’s the worst pitch you’ve ever read — pretentious and horrifying — but I remember writing it, sitting on the floor listening to Tegan and Sara in my underwear, being like, ‘I’m a genius!'”), that rape/not-rape scene between Shiri Appleby and Adam Driver, and how Jack Antonoff warned her not to make stupid race jokes in public.

Gabrielle Union says her “best anti-aging tip is the ability to say ‘no, no and hell no'”. Bless her!

James Corden helped Aaron Paul return to Price Is Right and redeem himself after his massive fail 17 years ago.

Drake and Nicki Minaj’s selfies were 100% directed at Meek Mill, no?

Connie Britton offered some Southern perspective about humanity. And Salma Hayek sat next to her and didn’t interrupt her or call her “baby” once!

-This is a really interesting look at why young actresses won’t make romantic comedies anymore.

-I don’t watch Doctor Who but I’ll certainly start if Olivia Colman or Hayley Atwell take over the lead role.

-Well, this is something: Emile Hirsch’s assault charge might have cost him a TV gig.

-I could watch Keanu Reeves tell kid jokes all day long…

Dakota Johnson proves she can fit a whole bunch of stuff in her tooth gap.

Josh Gad is still sneakily trying to pressure Daisy Ridley for more Last Jedi details.

Christine Baranski is starring in the new spinoff of The Good Wife, which means we’re getting glorious new interviews and photo shoots. QUEEN!

-Here’s the new Ghost In The Shell trailer, starring Scarlett Johansson. which is set to air during the Super Bowl.

Leslie Jones Had the Most Fun at the Emmys

Leslie Jones was all of us by getting selfies at the Emmys with pretty much every TV star alive. And also John Mayer.

-Like Leslie, Pedro Pascal also seemed to  make the most of his time at the Emmys.

-That was a shockingly great Emmy Awards, right? It ended on time, was surprisingly inclusive, and (Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Game of Thrones’ aside) honoured plenty of new blood and niche series (Regina King won the ONLY Emmy for a network show last night). It’s the first time in years the show didn’t leave me rage-y. I even loved most of the dresses!

-Of course, the Emmy telecast hit an all-time ratings low because life.

-The kids from Stranger Things performed “Uptown Funk” at the Emmys preshow. God, I love them so much.

-Speaking of the Stranger Things cast, Steve’s hair really does look like that IRL!

Tom Hiddleston flirting with Priyanka Chopra makes a lot more sense to me than whatever that Hiddleswift stuff was.

-Also, the after-party photos are further proof that we all need to go drinking with Matthew Rhys.

-Friday Night Light stars Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler gave me all the feels this week, first with her birthday wish to him and then with their reunion pic.

-Whoa. I don’t usually put a lot of stock in Radar stories but they’ve reportedly been working on this one about an A-lister involved in a a Hollywood pedophile sex ring for four years. And whoa. We’ll have to see if anything comes of it.

-My Name Is Earl star Jason Lee is the latest celeb to flee Scientology.

Shailene Woodley says she’s “always dreamed” of writing a book on female masturbation. It’s good to have dreams.

Bella Thorne (who was reportedly dating her brother’s ex-girlfiend recently) was spotted kissing Tyler Posey (who recently pretended to come out). Kids today!

Gillian Anderson has no problem with all the talk about reinventing James Bond with her as the lead. (Nor do I.)

-I have yet to finish Fargo season 2, but season 3 will star Ewan McGregor, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Carrie Coon so I’m already in.

-Fall TV officially starts tonight with the premiere of the new Kristen Bell sitcom The Good Place, which is getting great reviews. (The fact that NBC is airing three episodes this week before settling into its regular timeslot is hella confusing, though.)

-Probably the best-reviewed new show of the season, This Is Us, also debuts this week. The only bad review I’ve read so far still makes me want to watch it, just for this: “This Is Us is invigoratingly heinous. Bad TV is a commonplace, but a true Mount Everest of bullshit is rare.” (Though I swear to god, if the big twist in the pilot is that Mandy Moore dies, I’m gonna throat punch someone. Girlfriend’s been trying to land a steady TV gig for a decade!)

Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow played Friends trivia and killed it.

-Aww, this really bums me out: Anthony Bourdain and his wife Ottavia Busia have split after 9 years together.

-This is a really good look at how FX became TV’s best, most reliable network.

Michael Shannon was my favourite thing about Nocturnal Animals. I love him. I also love that he just freely slammed directors, saying Woody Allen and Alexander Payne are “not nice.

Amal Clooney says that George gets worried when she takes ISIS leaders to trial. No doubt.

-I had a great time at this year’s TIFF (which you can read all about here), but I fully agree with Variety’s take on how it’s become a bit of a dumping ground. It’s trying to be both an industry buying hotspot and a cinephile’s festival, and it can no longer pull it off.

-Yikes. Will Ferrell just dropped out of his next project days before shooting was supposed to begin.

-Wait, the girl who played Marissa is joining The Good Wife spinoff? But I’ve already vowed to not watch it!

-Everyone’s hating on Jimmy Fallon for his Donald Trump interview but like, what exactly were they expecting?

-This article on the significance behind Shonda Rhimes’ characters’ alcohol preferences is the perfect antidote to Mondays.

-I mean, does a couple that’s only been together 6 weeks really warrant articles on their breakup?

-Here’s a very, very brief look at Passengers, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt.

-Despite its minuscule restaurant, FXX has renewed You’re the Worst for Season 3 because it’s the best!
