-Aw nuts. Despite receiving a fourth and final renewal, Netflix announced they won’t be creating any more episodes of Glow due to the COVID-19 shutdown. I hate these reverse decisions on renewals. I get they can’t shoot anything now, but is there no way to hold the show for a year?

-Speaking of Netflix, they also opted not to pick up a second season of Teenage Bounty Hunters, which is surprising because that show seemed universally beloved.

-A Netflix show that is NOT universally beloved right now is Emily in Paris. I tried but the way they portray social media managers was too much to get me past episode 3. It’s pretty, but the lead character is too arrogant to raise it to Younger or The Bold Type levels of fun.

-The movie industry has basically given up 2020. Following last week’s announcement that the new James Bond would move to Easter 2021 and F9 would also be pushed to May 2021, Denis Villeneuve’s Dune has bumped its release date all the way to next October.

-Meanwhile, Hocus Pocus was re-released and it nearly beat Tenet at this weekend’s box office.

-I never want to watch any Game of Thrones-adjacent thing again but good for Paddy Considine for getting cast as the lead in the prequel House Of The Dragon. I adore him.

-The only good part about the SNL premiere was Chloe Fineman‘s impression of Drew Barrymore, which Barrymore adored.

Drake Enlists Justin Bieber for “Popstar” Video

Drake and DJ Khaled debuted their new music video for “Popstar” and it features surprise appearances from Justin and Hailey Bieber. Two things: this is the best Bieber has looked in a long time, and why is there a “COVID Compliance Officer” listed in the credits when there’s zero social distancing??

-To celebrate her birthday, Beyonce donated $1 million to black-owned businesses.

-Meanwhile, we might have a new Beyonce project soon. Page Six reports that Bey shut down a television studio for four days to film something mysterious.

Rumer Willis is having quite a week. She kicked off dating speculation when she was spotted hanging with newly single Armie Hammer, and now she’s shooting sexy IG videos for Kim Kardashian‘s Skims.

Scarlett Johansson says the new Black Widow movie will address #MeToo and #TimesUp directly. If only we could see it without fear of dying.

Alexander Payne published a guest column in Deadline today, in which he denies Rose McGowan allegation that he groomed her for a sexual assault when she was 15. “Rose is mistaken in saying we met when she was fifteen, in the late 1980s. I was a full-time film student at UCLA from 1984 until 1990, and I know that our paths never crossed.”

McGowan responded to his comments with “I told Payne to acknowledge and apologize, he has not. I said I didn’t want to destroy, now I do. Why do these men always lie? I will now make it a mission to expose him. I am not the only one.”

-Who knows when we’ll get a new album, but at least Rihanna’s documentary will be released on Amazon next year.

-I’ve never watched the CBS sitcom Mom, but it seems odd that Anna Faris is leaving the show. Isn’t she the lead?

-Another day, another stunning look from Cate Blanchett in Venice. I love that she’s recycling outfits she’s worn on previous red carpets!

-I’m really liking Vulture’s Two Friends series on Instagram Live, mostly because of all the odd celebrity pairings. Who knew You’re the Worst’s Desmin Borges and Tala Ashe from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow were buds?

-This is a really interesting take on what the movie industry in 2020 might have looked like without covid. Would Will Smith and Ana de Armas be Oscar frontrunners? Would the Top Gun and Ghostbusters reboots have flopped?

-The Good Place’s Jameela Jamil wants you to know that she’s not actually quarantining with Meghan and Harry. It does sound like a story Tahani would tell though.

-For the first time ever, all Canadians will be able to watch TIFF films digitally during the festival. Tickets for non-members go onsale Saturday at 10am and there’s still some left.  Even if you’re doing it from your couch, it really is the coolest thing to watch movies with big name stars that may never see the light of day, or obscure foreign ones that won’t get distribution here.

Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Zach Braff try to kill Tommy Lee Jones while making a movie in The Comeback Trail trailer.

SZA Makes It To The Other Side

-I know she seems to hate it for some reason, but SZA’s Rolling Stone cover story is really good! She tries to temper expectations about her next release (“Music is coming out this year for sure. An album? Strong words”), talks about coming to terms with fame (“I’ve been in the airport on the way to see my grandmother on life support and [fans] are like, ‘‘Aw, girl, what are you doing here? Can I get this picture now?'”) and addresses the devastating loss of her grandmother (“I didn’t want to make music. I didn’t. I was just trying to not kill myself, and not quit, period. Because it was really fucking hard, and lonely as fuck”).

-She also released the video for “The Other Side,” her collab with Justin Timberlake for the Trolls World Tour soundtrack.

-The Johnny Depp apologists who were all over Twitter a couple of weeks ago seem strangely silent today. According to text messages read out in court this week, Depp once texted actor pal Paul Bettany: “Let’s burn Amber [Heard]…Let’s drown her before we burn her!!! I will f–k her burnt corpse afterwards to make sure she is dead.” Depp is in London for a preliminary hearing in his libel suit against British newspaper The Sun over an article that alleged Depp had been abusive to Heard. The texts were revealed in court after previous lawyers for Depp had accidentally shared 70,000 messages from and to the actor with The Sun’s legal team — by mistake!

-The This Is Us cast is out here doing TikTok challenges.

Hilary Duff shaded Disney+, implying the Lizzie McGuire revival is on hold because it was considered too mature for the streaming service.

-I have no interest in watching Amazon’s Hunters starring Al Pacino so I read this spoilery review. The big twist sounds hella dumb.

-The people behind Invisible Man created a bunch of scary stunts for the junket. I hate this. These things are stressful enough; journalists are just trying to do their jobs.
