Taraji P. Henson is on an absolute tear with Cookie – and she should be. She’s proud of her work, proud of her career, proud of the doors Empire will open. Did you see Taraji jump when Viola’s name was announced? She was thrilled. And she stood up, encouraging Viola through her speech. Full Story

Here’s an example of what I mean about the quiet Emmys that it was.  Mindy Kaling was wearing probably the most flattering awards show dress I’ve seen her wear.  She looked great and she seemed comfortable. One of my favourite moments of the night was watching her whisper with Jon Stewart the whole time he was supposed to be listening to whomever was accepting the award for The Daily Show. Full Story

Peter Dinklage won his second Emmy for portraying Tyrion Lannister last night, a win that encapsulates my problem with the Emmys—oh yeah, I have a problem with the Emmys. My problem is this: The same shows win every year. And once something starts winning, it tends to turn into a juggernaut and win every year for a whole bunch of years regardless of whether or not it’s actually still the best thing on TV. Full Story

Claire Danes has Emmy Armor

Much was made of the chains on Claire Danes’ dress. MUCH.  I feel like all the Seacrest interviews went by in a blur of them checking out his jacket designed by him anyway, but it was so clear that he didn’t have much to say about Homeland by the amount of time he spent on the chains. Full Story

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
