Spike TV’s Guy’s Choice Awards happened this weekend. The show will air on June 18th. Jake was honoured with the Guy Con award, presented to him by his Southpaw co-star, friend, and rumoured girlfriend, Rachel McAdams. Let’s play reverse psychology here: If there was really something between them, would they have agreed to have her do this? Or is all of that good promotion for the movie anyway? Would these two toy with those kinds of suggestions just to promote a movie? Jake would want you to think he’s above that. Full Story

The Martian: Also NOPE

Sarah Posted by Sarah at June 8, 2015 16:49:02 June 8, 2015 16:49:02

I called Everest a big bag of NOPE after watching the first trailer, and after sitting through Fox’s three minute-plus first trailer for The Martian, I am adding this movie to the NOPE bag, too. Directed by Ridley Scott, The Martian is based on Andy Weir’s novel (adapted by Drew Goddard) about an astronaut who gets stranded on Mars after a manned mission is forced to abort. Full Story

Forget the royal babies and the Tony Awards and the Khaleesi’s dragon. Everyone was waiting today for an announcement from Beyonce on Good Morning America. After all, this is how they chose to hype it:   .@Beyonce has something amazing she wants you to know: "This is something I have to share with everyone. Full Story

It’s not like he doesn’t bring girlfriends to award shows. Suki Waterhouse has accompanied him a few times to award shows, including the Oscars. Right now though, it’s probably too soon for Irina Shayk, isn’t it? They’ve only just started. Oh. And then there’s the matter of her being linked to Sepp Blatter, the now ex head of FIFA, and considered to be one of the most corrupt executives in sport. Full Story

So there’s the Kate Moss way of behaving on a short flight…and then there’s Brange, with all of their children. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt flew out of LA on Saturday using the buddy system. Each child had to be attached to another child, except for the two oldest boys who, understandably, are now too cool to hold hands. Full Story

I switched over to Game Of Thrones just before the Fun Home performance at the Tony Awards last night but Duana sent me a text making me promise to go back to Ring Of Keys after the dragons. Oh my God, Sydney Lucas. Your swagger… Your dungarees! Watch this one. Will she be an Anne Hathaway or more like a Lea Michele? Or… Anna Kendrick? I’m going to predict a Hathaway-Kendrick hybrid. Full Story

Babies all look the same, really, when they’re as young as Princess Charlotte. I mean come on, could you really pick her out in a baby lineup? That’s why, even in her first portraits, her brother is the star. It’s all about Big G. It’s always about Big G. Big G evidently took a break from sitting on his sister some time in May to allow her to rest on him instead as their mother lovingly held the camera. Full Story

Game of Thrones Season 5, Episode 9 recap. SPOILERS Last week Lainey noted that the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones is usually when the Serious Business goes down, but after last week’s episode featured that amazing battle sequence north of the Wall, we all wondered what could possibly top it. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Melissa McCarthy’s Spy opens this weekend. So far, the reviews are excellent. At post time, Spy is rated 94% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and is expected to take the box office. That’s amazing and it’s important. Because finally Melissa McCarthy is in a feature that’s deserving of her and also, it’s not often that a female comedian gets to lead. And win. Especially when the pressure to win is so much more. Sandler doesn’t have to worry that his sh-tty movies will cost him. He gets to keep making them. But, as we know, as we’ve seen, when a woman carries a movie and it goes down, Hollywood decides it has to take a break.

I laugh every time I see the Spy trailer. And I’ve seen it several times. I love the way Melissa delivers the “Well that’s a confidence builder" line. Even the scooter part is hysterical…because, yes, why does a scooter need a roof? Also, I can’t wait to watch her scenes with Rose Byrne who’s been impressively showing us so much range the last couple of years.

If Melissa opens at #1 this weekend and Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck comes out strong in a few weeks, following the earlier success of Pitch Perfect 2, the message becomes harder and harder to dismiss. Hopefully. One of the gifts of discrimination is its steadfast myopia. This would also describe the Entourage movie.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
