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.

No #SquadGoals Here; Critics Skewer Suicide Squad

-I happened¬†to be on Twitter last when the Suicide Squad review embargo was lifted and oof! The critics are absolutely hating on it, so much so that dumb fanboys are now petitioning to have Rotten Tomatoes shut down¬†—¬†which is kind of like complaining that¬†a newspaper prints too many crime stories. (This is why I now try to limit my tweets about superhero TV; DC fanboys are the WORST.) Meanwhile, THR’s deep dive into what went wrong with this movie is¬†fascinating.¬†Warner Bros execs were reportedly so¬†blindsided and rattled by the critical¬†response to Batman v. Superman that they even brought in the team who made the (admittedly great) first Suicide Squad trailer to¬†help tweak the movie, which is…wow.

Channing Tatum is set to star in Splash remake, playing the mermaid while Jillian Bell will play the character originally played by Tom Hanks. I love this news, especially since Tatum is never funnier than when he’s with Bell. Have you seen his Idiotsitter episode? If not, this clip should convince you to rectify that.

-Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey has apologized after pretending to come out. Wait, what?

Bradley Cooper allowed James Corden to tase him. I really wish I had that opportunity after seeing All About Steve.

-Surprise! We’re getting a new Britney Spears album this month!

-Welp. This isn’t good news for the Cruel Intentions reboot starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. NBC is reportedly looking at “alternative platforms” to air it.

-Pro gun nuts ran Daisy Ridley off Instagram.

Jonah Hill¬†told Fallon a story about the time he¬†accidentally emailed Drake his daily food journal¬†(the point of said story is to let y’all know that he has Drake in his contacts).

-I cannot believe I forgot to record The Hills anniversary special when I was away.  Sounds like they showed lots of forth wall-breaking clips. (Spencer Pratt, who was not invited, still managed to add his commentary.)

-As if you didn’t already love the kids from Stranger Things, it turns out they’re all really good singers.

-Meanwhile, as good as Stranger Things is, this is a really great piece on how the show misses the mark with its female characters.

-I don’t know what makes me happier: that there are a bunch of videos floating around of the Arrow cast breaking into showtunes from Hamilton, or that in each one, the guy who plays Det. Lance seems really annoyed by it.

-Once again at the TCAs, HBO was somehow blindsided by questions on its shows defaulting to sexual violence against women. Sigh.

-Meanwhile at the TCAs,¬†Archie Panjabi gracefully deflected questions about her messy exit from The Good Wife. Proper ’cause that wasn’t the place for those kinds of questions, but can she just go ahead and do a Vanity Fair tell-all interview already?

Julia Stiles didn’t love riding a motorcycle with Matt Damon on the Bourne set.

-Excuse me while I go build a shrine to this photo Joshua Jackson just posted on Instagram…

Tatiana Maslany heads to the Arctic but can’t escape her past in¬†her new movie Two Lovers and a Bear.
