Rumors of a sequel to the found footage monster flick Cloverfield have floated ever since that movie was a surprise hit in 2008. Produced by JJ Abrams, Cloverfield is the movie that kicked off the JJ Abrams School of SECRETY SECRETS, as its ad campaign was mysterious and baffling and featured an all-time great trailer Full Story

Zoolander 2, no, sorry, Zoolander No. 2, opens on February 12. That’s not typically a good month for movies. But it’s also NY Fashion Week. And it’s during award season. Please, please, please, can Derek and Hansel present at the Oscars? Well, first, they have to promote the movie. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

They’re calling it a reunion. The Friends reunion. And Twitter went apesh-t over it yesterday. But is it really a reunion if they don’t know if all of them will actually be together? James Burrows will be honoured by NBC on a primetime special during February sweeps. He directed several  episodes of Friends, including the pilot. So at the Winter TCA yesterday, NBC chair Robert Greenblatt revealed that the Friends will “reunite” for the event...but then clarified that:

“I’m hoping all six will be in same room at same time; I’m not sure we can logistically pull it off.”

So, again, is it really a reunion if four of them are sitting together and two others have sent in their remarks via video message?

Anyway, Oscar nominations today. When Leo says later that his publicist/agent/manager/mom woke him up to tell him that he got called, I will believe it. That nomination has been secure for months. More nomination analysis through the day.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. I am Slytherin, proudly. Our house flag is flying at half-mast today.

I mentioned earlier that it was going to be a tense day and that’s because I was nervous and excited about The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, coming to The Social to tape a one hour special for Bell Let’s Talk Day on January 27th in support of mental health awareness.

We’re preparing ourselves for the inevitability of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar win, right? There’s always a chance that Bryan Cranston’s Trumbo hustle could pay off, or that Michael Fassbender will get off his ass and decide to participate and upset Leo, but I think we’re all resigned to “Academy Award Winner Leonardo DiCaprio” being his new official title. Full Story

Quick post because I saw these photos the other day and couldn’t wait to share them with you but then so much other sh-t got in the way. One of our common obsessions – celebrity friendships: how they happen, the more random the better. Whoopi Goldberg and Jesse Eisenberg went out for lunch together the other day. Full Story

Liam “stepped back” for Miley

I’m kinda tense today. There’s a lot going on. Maybe I’m crusty and seeing this story through a c-nt lens but the new cover and story for US Weekly just sent me into a rage. It’s about Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth maybe getting back together. You’ll recall, she was in Australia for New Year’s with him and they were seen making out at a music festival – click here Full Story

Remember when the idea of an Aquaman movie was a running joke on Entourage? And now we live in a world where Warner Brothers is seriously going to make an Aquaman movie. Which means we’re living in the Entourage universe. Truly, this is the darkest timeline. Aquaman: No, Seriously is slated for the summer of 2018 (though Aquaman and his wife, Mera, will appear in Justice League first), and it will be directed by James Wan of Furious 7 and Insidious fame. Full Story
