Scream Queens is getting great advance buzz from critics, so I guess Emma Roberts will become a thing. Or more of a thing, depending on your perspective. Judging by her presence at the Emmys, she definitely doesn’t have her aunt Julia’s penchant for stealing the spotlight when presenting an award. Full Story

I’ve looked around, and I can’t find a really strong anti-67th Emmys faction, even among all the complainers on Twitter (who I am proud to call my brethren).  Don’t get me wrong, there are still people frustrated with the show, with the winners, or the lack thereof, but the show itself wasn’t offensive as in some years, nor was it a disaster. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Our original beagle, Marcus, was released from hospital yesterday. He spent some time sunbathing on the deck, napping in all his favourite places, he ate some chicken drumsticks, and a lot of peanut butter. Our boy Iived like a boss and he went out like a boss. Seriously. He was licking peanut butter off my finger the moment he left us.

Twelve years ago, LaineyGossip started as a newsletter. That's also when Marcus was born. He's a first class gossip. In his honour, the blog is dark today.

Thank you SO MUCH for all your messages and tweets. Many of you have been reading this site a long time and I can't tell you how much we appreciate your support. I'm sorry for checking out early yesterday and for the interruption to your gossip schedule. It will be back soon.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Dear Gossips,

Guess what? She’s back! (Sort of) Who? Who have you been missing? Chrissy O! The photos are only in one agency and we are trying to buy but we won’t know if that’s possible until later this morning.  Read Full Intro

Stephen Frears’ Lance Armstrong movie, The Program, is not the worst movie I’ve seen at TIFF—that’s a toss-up between London Fields and Our Brand is Crisis—but it is probably the most disappointing. Frears has a knack for biopics (see also: Philomena, The Queen), but The Program feels a little…soft. Full Story

US Weekly reported exclusively late yesterday that Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender had broken up. Their sources however had no information about when it happened or why. The two haven’t been photographed together in a few months. This morning though, an exclusive from Gossip Cop Full Story

I heard some industry folks at TIFF sh*t-talking Netflix for allegedly overpaying for Cary Fukunaga’s Beasts of No Nation, Netflix’s first original feature film. They were of the opinion that Netflix will keep overpaying for movies and go bust, but just a few years ago TV executives were saying the same thing, and now look where we are. Full Story

As mentioned several weeks before the start of TIFF, the Beasts Of No Nation carpet was the one big ask I put to our producers at etalk. The request was granted. On Sunday night I was in first position at the premiere. This was the 5th or 6th time I’ve interviewed Idris. Did I ever tell you that I once interviewed him and Charlie Hunnam together? Me, in a small room with Idris and Charlie. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Janet Jackson’s Unbreakable tour stopped in Toronto last night. Unfortunately because our dog Marcus is still in the hospital, I couldn’t go. Several of my friends and colleagues did though, live-texting me through the night to help me feel like I was there.  Read Full Intro
