Gwendoline Christie Slays at the Game of Thrones Premiere

-The Game of Thrones premiere red carpet was fire, but Gwendoline Christie was the clear winner. It’s a smart move on her part — she’s coming off her first big thing and now is when she needs to create some buzz for future gigs.

-Also, Sophie Turner confirmed on the carpet that Maisie Williams will be her maid of honour when she marries Joe Jonas.

Tessa Thompson casually and repeatedly burning Chris Hemsworth in this birthday message to RDJ has me suddenly excited to see their Men in Black film.

-Sources say Britney Spears is doing “much better” after checking herself into a mental health facility to cope with her father’s illness.

-This is hilarious: Tom Holland still hasn’t read the script For Avengers: Endgame despite being done filming — and it’s because Marvel doesn’t trust him not to spoil it.

-So Jennifer Lopez is just going to keep ignoring those cheating rumours, huh?

Kanye West‘s kids took April Fool’s Day wayyyyy too far — they made him think Kim Kardashian had died. Kim told Elle: “[North] roped him into an April Fool’s prank yesterday that was ridiculous. She took ketchup into my bathroom, and she begged me to let her spread it on me, and on the bathroom, as if it was like a bad scary movie. Then she asked me to lie down. I thought she was just playing, maybe that she was going to say I was hurt. No. She taught Saint how to fake-cry—she showed him how to do it!—and then she told him to scream ‘Mommy’s dead!’ Kanye ran upstairs and he was like, ‘Kids, this is not funny. This is not a good prank.'”

-Out of all the things I could imagine Prince Harry coming out strongly against, Fortnite wasn’t one of them. He talked about banning the video game, saying “It’s created to addict. An addiction to keep you in front of a computer for as long as possible. It’s so irresponsible.”

-Speaking of the royals, everyone’s keeping their eye on the UK press to see if they will start reporting on the Prince William cheating rumours now that the US press is. They continued to toe the line with the palace even though the Daily Beast reported on it, but now that it’s being splashed across supermarket tabloids, with they follow suit? That’s what happened once French outlets started covering Kate’s topless photos. We’ll see.

-I know it’s probably beyond a long shot, but it’s incredible to me that there’s talks of bringing Pitch back. Disney’s 20th TV is dangling a revival of Dan Fogelman‘s baseball drama to entice the This Is Us creator to remain in-house.

Celine Dion laughed off rumours of a relationship with her backup dancer: “Pepe is gay…The thing is that he’s my best friend and we dance together and he did so much for me and even just holding my hand…it’s something that I haven’t had for a long time…A hug from a 6′ 3″ man, it was wonderful…and people really thought there was a romance going on.”

-Is Emma Stone engaged? She’s been spotted sporting a diamond ring.

-Maybe when you’re heading into your court appearance you should just skip the autograph line, Lori Loughlin.  Just sayin’.

-Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath is denying reports he’s gone deaf, saying he was misquoted.

Kristen Bell has a warning about the new Veronica Mars miniseries. “This will be a controversial season. Let me just say that. I am excited for people to watch and I am also probably going to stay off the internet once it airs. There’s some stuff that happens that people will have strong feelings about.” I’m guessing Logan and Veronica break up, which isn’t doing much to build my excitement.

-I really like this story about the women behind Captain Marvel banding together to form a new production company, combining the clout they’ve earned to “exponentially lift up storytellers and less heard voices.”

Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen show off some surprising chemistry in this new Long Shot clip and I’m so confused.

Kristen Stewart pretends to be an author to cover for Laura Dern in the trailer for J.T. LeRoy. I saw this at TIFF and I thought it was good, not great, but the performances were fun.

Khole Kardashian Goes Off on Jordyn Wood

Khole Kardashian just went after Jordyn Woods on Twitter. I’ve been trying to avoid this story but day-um!

-Meanwhile, Woods says she feels like she’s “free” after discussing the Tristan Thompson scandal with Jada Pinkett Smith on Red Table Talk, where she denied the cheating allegations.

-Will Smith is clearly #TeamJordyn.

-The Kardashian fam is having a rough go of it in the romance department. Kylie Jenner accused Travis Scott of cheating.

-Human turd pile Johnny Depp is now going after Amber Heard with a $50M defamation lawsuit. “Ms. Heard is not a victim of domestic abuse, she is a perpetrator,” says the suit in reaction to an op-end the actress penned for The Washington Post in December.

-Oh noooooo. Ian McKellen said Bryan Singer and Kevin Spacey committed alleged abuses because they were closeted.

-A lot of people are talking about Wesley Morris’ piece in the NYT on the Michael Jackson doc, which airs Sunday and Monday on HBO. The article itself is devastating; I don’t know if I’m going to be able to get through all four hours.

-Meanwhile, Oprah Winfrey recorded a special with the two men whose allegations against Jackson are detailed in the HBO documentary.

-The Jonas Brothers released a new video for “Sucker” that costars the brothers’ significant others (Piyanka Chopra, Sophie Turner and Danielle Jonas) and plays like outtakes from The Favourite.

Mindy Kaling‘s Late Night starring Emma Thompson is coming to theatres June 7 and I CANNOT WAIT.

Selma Blair‘s IG post with Sarah Michelle Gellar is very sweet.

-To celebrate this week’s home release of the Oscar-award-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Sony has uploaded the opening 9 minutes of the film to YouTube. This might have been my favourite movie of 2018.

-Speaking of amazing movies from 2018, Eighth Grade is now on Netflix.

-This new Neftlix promo starring Uzo Aduba is really powerful.

-I very much like Kelly Clarkson’s cover of Robyn‘s “Dancing On My Own.”

Kristen Bell responded to a fan’s (very reasonable) question about how she can make speeches about protecting children’s privacy while also starring in a commercial with a kid.

-This video of the Brooklyn Nine-Nine cast and crew learning the show got renewed is delightful.

-I haven’t been active in fandom for years (though I still lurk in couple), but I’ve never seen a more positive one than the Wyonna Earp fandom. It makes me want to watch the show!

Ryan Adams‘s planned tour of Britain and Ireland has been canceled amid allegations that he harassed women in the music industry.

-I love that Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are in talks for an Edge of Tomorrow sequel. That’s my favourite airplane movie.

Katherine Helmond, who played Mona on Who’s The Boss, has passed away.

-Here’s the first trailer for Ava DuVernay‘s four-part Netflix series When They See Us about the Central Park Five. It costars Michael K. Williams, Vera Farmiga, John Leguizamo, Felicity Huffman, Niecy Nash, Blair Underwood, Joshua Jackson and Famke Janssen.

Steve Carell Surprises Jenna Fischer for Her Birthday

-Jenna Fischer was a guest on Busy Philipps‘ show last night and Steve Carell surprised her for her birthday. Yeah, this got me right in the heart guts.

Ben Affleck and ex-girlfriend Lindsay Shookus have reunited.

Ellen Page is urging people to remember that hate crimes are not a hoax, and people should not to lose sight of the endemic violence against underrepresented communities.

-She’s done it again! Survivor superfan Sia surprised a Survivor contestant with a $14,000 cheque. This is the third time she’s gifted one of her favourite contestants with $$.

Will Smith has a new series on Facebook Watch called Will Smith’s Bucket List, a reality/challenge show. In the six-episode weekly series, the actor will travel the globe, checking off bucket list adventures like starring in a Bollywood movie, skydiving in Dubai, and performing stand-up with Dave Chappelle.

Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell are not great at guessing games.

Idris Elba has no intention of giving up his “Sexiest Man Alive” title. Change approved!

Adam Rippon tested a variety of celeb rosé and he found Brangelina’s Mirval too sweet so I trust nothing he says.

-Better Things returns tonight and the reviews suggest this season is even better than the previous two. I’m not sure how that’s possible. (I rewatch this dance scene at least once a month. And this scene when Max’s dad bails on her graduation and everyone steps up? *sob*)

-Ok, this story may feel too industry insider-y, but stay with me cause it’s huge: Fox was just rocked by one of the biggest financial penalties in TV history ($179 million) after an arbitrator concluded top Fox execs gave false testimony to cover up their “reprehensible” fraud regarding the TV show Bones. The arbitrator said Fox executives lied, cheated and committed fraud at the expense of the show’s stars (David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel), executive producer producer Barry Josephson and author Kathy Reichs (whose novels the series was based on), who had filed a lawsuit claiming they were cheated out of their rightful profit participation. Thanks to Fox’s distribution/streaming deals (including a “sweetheart” deal with Hulu, which Fox had a 30% stake in), the procedural drama took in nearly half a billion dollars in its first seven seasons — but Fox deemed the show to be a money loser, which meant the cast, EP and author got no profit share. So instead of licensing Bones’ streaming rights for fair value, Fox’s studio dept was basically giving it away to Fox’s distribution dept. “The obvious inferences of self-dealing, conflict of interest and the lack of any arm’s length negotiations leap off the page,” the arbitrator concluded. Not only is this ruling expected to alter the economics of hit shows in the streaming era, it also leaves Hulu’s fate uncertain. And with new streaming services coming from Disney, Warner and NBC, it’ll be interesting to see what “fair market value” they’ll now be expected to pay for the past seasons their own studio’s shows.

The Four Weddings and a Funeral cast reunite in the first trailer for their Red Nose Day special.

-Netflix UK accidentally streamed The Notebook with all alternate bummer ending, and people freaked.

-Hmmm…I’m not sure I’m loving Brie Larson’s dress at the Captain Marvel premiere. That cut makes it look like it’s falling off.

-Every new trailer for Little makes me fall more and more in love with it.
