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

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

It was announced yesterday that Janet Jackson will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2019. Finally. And this is good news, of course. But it’s also an opportunity to talk about why it’s late news. Because Janet has been eligible for induction since 2007. She wasn’t nominated until 2016. Full Story

As Lainey mentioned in her intro, The Social: Year in Gossip airs tonight in primetime on CTV.  We shot it last week. It was the last show I produced on my last day at The Social. It’s a recap of all the scandal, fashion, romance, and drama of the past year. Full Story

Those fireworks could be a metaphor for, well, everything: their intense relationship, falling in love quickly, getting engaged and married, the drama around the wedding, the major publicity around the pregnancy to kick off their first overseas tour, and the recent gossip about the supposed tension between the royal courts. Full Story

Kensington Palace released the photo that’s featured on the Cambridges’ Christmas Card today and look at Big G in his big boy pants! Royal boys, as you know, are supposed to wear shorts until, I dunno, some prescribed age like… 7? 8? 10? That’s why little Louis Trey is in shorts, with tights. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

As you may have heard, the Screen Actors Guild award nominations kicked off all kinds of talk and frustration about snubs and category fraud yesterday. There are actors and films that have been recognized and awarded for weeks that the guild ignored.  Read Full Intro

This Christmas Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding are shooting Paul Feig’s Last Christmas, a romantic comedy which is scheduled for release next Christmas, possibly with the hopes of becoming the new Love Actually? Emma Thompson co-wrote the screenplay and she also has a part in the movie which is inspired by the song “Last Christmas”, or at least that’s where the title is coming from. Full Story

Aquaman is so incredibly dumb I don’t know how to review it other than to just tell you what it is and emphasize how extremely likeable it is in the face of its own sheer stupidity. So there will be some spoilers, but also realize that mere words cannot capture the magnificent dumbness of this movie, so in a way, it is impossible to spoil. Full Story

Armie Hammer and Justin Theroux ran around Washington, DC for the day, then attended a screening of On the Basis of Sex in New York City. Both fangirled over Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which is understandable. But I find the bromance interesting because Armie is so LA - a born-and-bred California movie star. Full Story
