Dear Gossips,

The Creative Arts Emmys happened this weekend. Beyoncé’s Homecoming was nominated six times. Beyoncé did not show up. Beyoncé did not win. Beyoncé probably knew she wouldn’t win. So, instead, she’s back to work.  Read Full Intro

LOLOLOLOL Michael K loves Trooper Patti and… yeah… I love her too. It’s not just her name – she has the perfect name for this job, it wouldn’t work quite as well if her name was, like, Heather – but also her accessories. And the boss way she sits in her chair Full Story

We are having a baby boy, due September 25 and there are two naming issues I’ve been thinking about, first names and portmanteau’d last names.   First names: we are struggling to find name options that we love/fit in with our names. My name is Kate (Katherine, but please no) and my husband’s name is quite unusual, though easy to say/read, we both like rarely used names but I also want something that doesn’t feel like a stranger to “Kate”. Full Story

Parasite, the latest film from South Korean director Bong Joon-ho, won the Palme d’Or in Cannes back in May and was just named the second runner-up for the TIFF People’s Choice Award. Between Jojo Rabbit and Parasite, the TIFF crowd broke weird this year, because Parasite is F-CKING BONKERS in the best way possible. Full Story

Marie Curie is one of those figures who, it seems, should have a million projects ongoing at any moment, but does not. Like how can we have nine Robin Hood movies in development, and NOTHING about Marie Curie? She’s only one of the most important scientists of the modern age, and one of the most groundbreaking, influential women of the suffrage era. Full Story

This is the Beckhams in their zone – family and fashion. Anna Wintour, who attended the show and the after-party, also took photos with Harper, which makes me wonder about a possible mother/daughter cover for US Vogue. That pairing has happened before for various editions: Serena and Olympia, Kate Moss and Lila Grace, Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber, and the Presleys (Priscilla and Lisa Marie and Riley Keough). Full Story

Charlie Hunnam was at TIFF for two films last week, True History of the Kelly Gang and Jungleland, premiering last Tuesday and Wednesday nights respectively. He came in a couple of days early for press and last Monday night he was at the Joker party and I got some gossipy observations from there that I forgot to tell you about so here we are. Full Story

Two years ago, back in 2017, Brad Pitt covered GQ and it was something of a publicity turnaround after months of World War Brange drama following his split from Angelina Jolie. At the time he was promoting War Machine and he spoke about quitting drinking, his “self-inflicted” troubles, the “façade” that has at once protected him but also detached him from…what? It’s an analogy he’s used often and he describes it again in a new interview with GQ as the magazine’s October 2019 cover star Full Story

Coming off the deeply unsuccessful and unpleasant finale of his X-Men run, Michael Fassbender is joining Taika Waititi’s next movie, Next Goal Wins. Based on a documentary of the same name, the movie is about a Dutch coach, Thomas Rongen (presumably to be played by Fassbender), who tries to turn the American Samoa soccer team into winners. Full Story
