Gilmore Girls Trailer: Lorelai Hikes Now?!

-The first Gilmore Girls trailer has arrived! I’m 78% certain this reboot is a terrible idea, but damn if this didn’t get me pumped anyway.

-Emma Watson says of the US election: “It has been excruciating to sit on the sidelines.”  Really? ‘Cause being able to sit on the sidelines is the only thing keeping me sane.

-Did Justin Timberlake break the law by taking a selfie while voting early?

-It’s cute that Diane Kruger didn’t seem to realize that we’re scouring her Instagram posts for possible clues about her status with Joshua Jackson.

-There are conflicting reports about whether or not Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx have split after three years of dating. Page Six says they’re done; Us Weekly says they’re still going strong. They’ve never confirmed a relationship, so don’t expect their reps to clarify.

-Nicole Richie is not sorry for her wild child past. “I don’t have to worry someone is going to put an embarrassing picture up on Facebook — the worst is already in strangers’ heads.”

-Miley Cyrus was “too stoned” to remember lyrics in her Bill Murray tribute performance. Way to stay on brand, girlfriend.

-Is Notorious the first fall TV casualty? ABC just cut its episode order, and we all know that “trimmed” is the new code word for “cancelled.”

-Every once in a while I dip back into Supergirl when there’s nothing else on. Was this show always so gay? Not just the obvious Alex evolution, but I was getting some major potential ‘ship vibes from Supergirl/Lena. It’s awesome!

-Despite critics absolutely hating on it, The Walking Dead premiere killed in the ratings. Humanity is doomed.

-These photos of Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett filming Ocean’s 8 tell us nothing about the plot and yet it’s already my favourite movie of all time.

-Taylor Swift’s groping lawsuit deposition has been released, and she said she felt “violated in a way I had never experienced before.”

-This photo spread with Stranger Things’ Millie Bobbie Brown makes me both want to see her get a modeling gig, but also stop her from growing up. It’s confusing.

-Sources tell People that Jennifer Lawrence seems less ‘stressed out’ with new man Darren Aronofsky. Yes, because when you think of stressed out people, Jennifer Lawrence is the first to come to mind.

-Aaron Paul is losing his mind in the trailer for Come and Find Me.

Drake Celebrates His Birthday with New Music


-It’s Drake‘s birthday but we’re the ones getting presents! To celebrate his 30th, he announced a new album and debuted some original tracks.

-In honour of Drake‘s birthday, here are a bunch of celebrities performing a dramatic reading of “One Dance.” (This was clearly filmed during TIFF.)

-No no no! There are rumours about Demi Lovato and John Mayer hanging out. Burn it with fire!!!!

-Kim Kardashian has dropped her lawsuit against Media Take Out after they apologized for claiming she faked her Paris robbery.

-Seriously guys, Justin Bieber really wants you to stop screaming at his concerts. Pretend it’s church, mm-kay?

-How did I not know that Jeffrey Dean Morgan owns a candy shop with Paul Rudd?! I think I’ve had that dream!!

-Speaking of JDM, I feel kind of bad for him because he was the best part about last night’s total piece of shit episode of The Walking Dead. I’ve never seen a show that hates its audience more. Critics were also not impressed. At all. Like, really. This was probably my favourite takedown.

-Emmy Rossum says her first time directing Shameless involved blocking scenes with Legos and teaching her costars how to snort cocaine. As you do…

-Well, this doesn’t bode well: George Lucas won’t be working on Indiana Jones 5.

-Hamilton fans, here’s a new Lin-Manuel Miranda song courtesy of Moana.

-Deadpool 2 has lost its director – and it sounds like Ryan Reynolds’ ego may be to blame.

-And now people are petitioning for Tarantino to direct it. What?

-Tom Hanks‘ SNL monologue wasn’t great, but there were some killer skits in the ep, especially Black Jeopardy and the one about CBS’s attempt to make a prestige show.

-I’m kind of over Lip Sync Battle, but I’m here for Samira Wiley’s upcoming performance of “O.P.P.”

-Kanye West is threatening to skip the Grammys if Frank Ocean isn’t nominated. I … kinda agree with him? Whoa. That feels weird.

-The lawyers for Serial’s Adnan Syed have asked the court to free him on bail.

-This might be the least attractive I’ve ever found Johnny Depp. And that’s saying something.

-Imogen Poots and Michael Shannon are in a May-Dec romance in the moody new trailer for Frank & Lola.

Shailene Woodley Reveals ”the Truth About My Arrest’


Morton County Sheriff

-Shailene Woodley wrote a first-hand account of her arrest for Time.

-A source tells People that Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer were living “separate lives” before the split, adding “They took turns caring for the kids so they could spend time with their separate group of friends.” Does that mean she has her own version of the p*ssy posse?

-Whoa. Donald Glover will play Lando Calrissian in the untitled 2018 Han Solo Star Wars Story.

-Casting couch alert? Jesse Plemons is joining the cast of girlfriend Kirsten Dunst‘s The Bell Jar movie.

-I LOVE Anne Hathaway‘s new movie Colossal and I’m glad that she’s promoting it hard. But this quote about winning an Oscar is a garbage fire.

-Bryan Cranston says more Breaking Bad stars are coming to Better Call Saul. Damn, does that mean I have to catch up?

-Hilary Swank says she was once offered $9.5 million less than a male costar. Even with the pay gap BS, that seems like a lot.

-This is such a great read on HBO’s Insecure and the way TV networks think about diversity as “risk.”

-Congrats to Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophie Hunter, who are expecting baby No. 2.

-Before we all lose the entire weekend in a Black Mirror binge, here’s a list of all the episodes, ranked.

-I’m way too old to shop at Hot Topic, so I’m gonna need a young ‘un to go buy me this Supergirl hoodie.

-It’s a big trailer day for Amy Adams. She makes first contact in the final promo for Arrival, and breaks Jake Gyllenhaal’s heart in the trailer for Nocturnal Animals (a movie I’m still not sure if I liked or not).
