Dear Gossips,

Let’s open today with Zendaya, because it’s been a minute. She’s kept a pretty low profile the second half of the year, spending most of it working on Spider-Man: Far From Home. Last night she attended the worldwide launch of new jewelry brand, Âme in LA and… well… she made it worth the wait.  Read Full Intro

Lainey asked me whether or not Noah Centineo belongs in the Best or Worst category of 2018 and without hesitation I said “BEST.” Peter Kavinsky was 100% one of the highlights of 2018. The character that Jenny Han created is one of the best rom-com boyfriends of all time. In the weeks and months after To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before started streaming, it felt like the only things people were tweeting, meme-ing and/or GIF-ing about were Peter Kavinsky and his love for Lara Jean. Full Story

Hannah Gadsby burst onto the international stage this year with her blistering not-comedy special Nanette. It feels like Nanette came out nine years ago because we live in a nightmare time warp where everything is happening all of the time, but it’s just been six months since Gadsby gave us a new lexicon for talking about trauma and comedy and processing trauma with comedy. Full Story

2018 was a good year for film—a REALLY good year. Narrowing down a Top 10 was difficult and came down to which films left the biggest mark, whether it be creating a cultural phenomenon or lingering in my mind for the better part of a year. I looked for films I found myself recommending over and over, and the ones I couldn’t wait to revisit. Full Story

He’s not jumping on a couch, but Chris Pratt is declaring his love in a big way. I would like to draw your attention to the bottom right corner; Katherine is holding a wooden Jesus plaque. Do you think he whittled it for her? He must have, why else would he have included it in the montage. Full Story

Chris Pratt hosted a special screening of A Quiet Place in LA on Wednesday with John Krasinski. It’s not like their friendship is a secret; they’re super bro-y on Instagram and support each other’s charity efforts. Plus, Chris was so taken with A Quiet Place that back in April, he recorded a reaction video from his car that John later laughed about on Seth Meyers Full Story
