Over the weekend I emailed Lainey all excited about Maya Rudolph and Martin Short’s new variety show. Does this make me deeply uncool? Yes, but in a week being dominated by Taylor and Kanye’s mutual f-ckery, I’d like to take a break from all-cap tweets and haughty publicists to talk about two really talented people. Full Story

While Canada was celebrating hosting its first ever NBA All-Star Weekend last night, our country’s first couple showed up to Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy party together, like, together. Gossip Cop reports that the two are definitely back together. Full Story

Also from the Saint Laurent event last night - Pamela Anderson with her sons Brandon and Dylan. Father, obviously, is Tommy Lee. How f-cking old am I that Pam's kids are, practically, proper adults? I was a first generation viewer of her sex tape! I'm saying this like someone in the 60s would say they went to Woodstock! Not only are they all grown now but one of them, Dylan, is also modelling for Saint Laurent. Full Story

It’s going to be a big weekend for Justin Bieber. Remember a few years ago how pissy he and Scooter Braun were about not being nominated for a Grammy? Well, JB’s performing at the Grammys. And he’s nominated for a Grammy. Maybe more. There are so many categories I can’t be bothered to check how many. Full Story

Deadpool opens on Friday. So does Zoolander 2. Promotion has been heavy on both movies. Ryan Reynolds, in particular, has been hustling like we’ve never seen him hustle. And without being gross about it. He’s doing his job and he looks like he’s having a great time doing his job. Full Story

Ryan Reynolds’s Deadpool opens on Friday. Reviews so far have been pretty good. As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago – click here for a refresher – I’m not sure he’s worked as hard at promotion as he has on this press tour. Full Story

Ryan Gosling did not walk the carpet at the SAGs. He didn’t walk at the Golden Globes either. Don’t be surprised if he doesn’t walk at the Oscars; he was confirmed as a presenter last week. Inevitable next question: Rachel? Ryan and Rachel? They weren’t seated very close to each other at all at the SAGs. Full Story

As mentioned earlier, Ryan Gosling was one on the Academy’s first list of presenters released yesterday. The Big Short might be making a late surge in the Oscar race. Ryan’s obviously going to support his film but also to get a head start on promoting The Nice Guys, coming out in April. Full Story

Rachel McAdams was the only Spotlight cast member present at the Critics’ Choice Awards last night and spoke on behalf of the cast when it was named Best Acting Ensemble. “Our cast” is what she said, which is the way it should be said. Once again, just as it was at the Golden Globes, Rachel was joined at the event by Sacha Pfeiffer. Full Story
