Alicia Vikander will be considered among the best actresses for contention at the Golden Globes even though the studio has been campaigning for her to be in the supporting actress category. While it's still not known whether or not the Academy will just go with whatever the studios submit or correct the category fraud. Full Story

Wait before you laugh. I'm not saying she's going to be nominated. But Johnny Depp is one of the favourites for a nomination this season for his performance in Black Mass. Which he claims he doesn't want to win. But the nomination? He'll take it. Because, for one, his wife will want to go. Full Story

I am a highly suggestible person where schools and universities are concerned. So this episode guarantees that I will be making an excuse to visit Williams College as soon as possible. It’s official now that Helen-and-Noah episodes are by far my favourite kinds of The Affair episodes. It took me a second to figure out why, but I think it’s twofold. Full Story

The Walking Dead wimps out

SPOILERS So after putting Glenn in a seemingly inescapable situation and doing everything possible to make it seem like he died, The Walking Dead did not kill off a major popular character after all. The show that is known for killing characters all the time yet somehow has never actually killed off a fan favorite failed to kill off the fan favorite. Full Story

Let's start with Gwen Stefani's appearance last night at the AMAs. On the carpet it was black sheer over underwear. And I've already complained today about the overdoneness of this look - click here for a refresher. If there's anyone, however, who can take something seemingly tired and give it a fresh spin, it's Gwen Stefani. Full Story

Let’s play Photo Assumption, the not very accurate game of gossip, with Nicki Minaj’s expressions through the show last night at the American Music Awards. At any point, do you think she looked around and asked herself why the f-ck she bothered? It cannot have been lost on Nicki that many of her peers, the ones she considers to be on her level, weren’t there. Full Story

Justin Bieber’s new album, Purpose, is good. I’m not going to make you admit it because I know that the wall of irritation that you’ve built up for him the last two years is too thick for your ears to break through but I’m telling you, it’s good. It has guaranteed that he has a career beyond the baby stage. Full Story

And I don’t mean Gorillaz because they would never let themselves be part of something so earnestly CRINGE. They made a big f-cking deal of the fact that Coldplay hasn’t performed at the AMAs in 7 years. It’s gross enough that every time I listen to this song I have to think about whether or not Chris Martin is singing about how Jennifer Lawrence flipped on the “on” switch for his dick, and the “magic” that took over him when he was inside of her. Full Story

You might not like Taylor Swift but there is no way that Taylor Swift, who held the biggest album in years before Adele’s 25, loses in every category she’s nominated in, and definitely not to I Can’t Ariana Grande. This is what we were dealing with last night at the American Music Awards. Full Story

Jennifer Lopez hosted the American Music Awards last night and opened with a medley of the year’s biggest hits. She gave it everything. She hit every move. She was a machine. She was the Entertainer. It was an awesome display of all of her performance skills. But here’s where we discuss celebrity and branding and career strategy. Full Story
