Dear Gossips,

The best thing I watched online yesterday was a 10-second video that I still don’t understand. And that’s why it’s my favourite. Because it’s bonkers and it came from Céline Dion and, well, this is why we love Céline Dion.  Read Full Intro

What Else?

Kathleen wrote earlier today about Michael B Jordan focusing more on his empire and not so much on love which is basically code for “I’m not looking for anything serious right now” or Kathleen code for “I’m waiting for Kathleen to come into my life”. Full Story

Tom Hiddleston was making headlines a few days ago when it was announced that there would be a new Loki standalone live-action series on Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+. So, somehow, yet again, Loki sticks around, is a metaphor for Tom somehow, yet again, sticking around as Loki. As if he would say no. Full Story

Is there one? Probably not. Probably I’m suggesting the existence of something that doesn’t exist. My point is Henry Cavill’s hair has been known to come up on this blog more than I think I ever expected it to - the hair on his face, the pretend hair on his face, and the hair on his head. Full Story

We are in it now. It’s mid-November. Golden Globe nominations will be announced in three weeks. And while we do have a front runner for Oscar Best Picture, the major prize, the one that matters the most, I’m not sure anyone is convinced at the moment that A Star is Born will run away with it. Full Story

Scarjo and the People

The People’s Choice Awards have always been kind of a joke. I feel like by now even the MiniVan Majority knows this? They’re trying to elevate the PCAs by airing them on E! but I’m not sure that makes a difference. E! is part of NBCUniversal. NBC has the TV rights to a much more popular awards show that many more people care much more about: the Golden Globes. Full Story

Michael Bae Jordan’s “Man of the Year” feature in GQ shares many similarities to his cover story in Vanity Fair last month. MBJ’s goals – to be an International Movie Star like Denzel, Leo, Tom, Will or Brad – are the focus of both. Full Story

For far too long, we underestimated Jennifer Garner’s fame game. There are other Hollywood stars who are media masters but most of them are flashy about their media strategy, few of them are as good at it and, at the same time, as stealthy about it as Jennifer Garner. This is why I started calling her Amazing Amy several years ago. Full Story

They used to say that Will Smith owns July. So many of his blockbuster movies were released in July that that was an understood thing in Hollywood. Do you have a month that has always been amazing for you? Do you have a month that has never been amazing for you? A month that has been total sh-t for you, consistently? At a certain point it becomes hard to separate whether or not that month is actually sh-t for you or you’re expecting it to be sh-t so it turns into sh-t. Full Story
