-People really had Megan Thee Stallion‘s new Harper’s cover — but she’s into it.

-We always heard that the people behind the votes for the Golden Globe Awards were susceptible to um, influence, but a new Los Angeles Times report about the shenanigans behind this year’s nominations is especially eye opening. That much ridiculed nomination for Emily In Paris makes a lot more sense when you read “Paramount Network treated [more than 30 members] to a two-night stay at the five-star Peninsula Paris hotel, where rooms currently start at about $1,400 a night, and a news conference and lunch at the Musée des Arts Forains, a private museum filled with amusement rides dating to 1850 where the show was shooting.” Oh, and the HFPA also has no Black members!

-Meanwhile, Succession’s Nicholas Braun heard about Kim Kardashian‘s divorce filing and is shooting his shot. “Would you be down to meet a new person, totally just kind of different guy? One who could, you know, make you laugh a little bit or make you feel small cause he’s so tall.”

-This lawyer explained why Kris Jenner would have wanted to make it it clear in the press that Kim and Kanye separated days before Kanye’s class action suits were supposed to hit in January. And now the date of separation wasn’t listed in the divorce filing — because the press articles from January will be used to prove the date. That’s both diabolical and impressive.

Zack Snyder wanted to add a romance between Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne and Amy Adams’s Lois Lane in Justice League. “The intention was that Bruce fell in love with Lois and then realized that the only way to save the world was to bring Superman back.” I’m not sure what’s worse – the total misread of Bruce’s character, or using a female character as complex as Lois just to motivate a dude.

-Meanwhile, the final trailer is here.
