Despite a searing expose detailing a litany of allegations against him, it seemed that director Bryan Singer would, ultimately, be just fine. Sure, his participation in Bohemian Rhapsody was a total sh-tshow, but the movie made nine hundred million dollars and won Oscars. Full Story

The Hollywood Reporter’s comedy issue includes, appropriately for Pride Month, a feature on the up-and-coming LGBTQ stars of comedy. Their round-up includes Joel Kim Booster, Jaboukie Young-White, Sam Jay, and Bowen Yang.

Everyone’s favorite young maybe-couple Hollywood, Tom Holland and Zendaya, are out and about, promoting Spider-Man: Far From Home. Jake Gyllenhaal is tagging along, making him the world’s handsomest third wheel. The three of them together are Zendallandenhaal, which sounds like a medieval province in Sweden. Full Story

When Bright, that awful Netflix fantasy film about magic cops in Los Angeles, came out in December 2017, many people wondered when the Hollywood Predator Advent Calendar would spit out screenwriter Max Landis’ name. He was long alleged to be a creep, and it seemed like finally his reckoning would come along with all the other sex pests and abusers being exposed in the wake of Harvey Weinstein. Full Story

GLOW is one of those shows I fear gets lost in the noise of Too Much TV.

Brie Larson also won an MTV Movie Award, for Best Fight in Captain Marvel. They singled out the “Carol vs. Minn-Erva” fight, which…was that the Nerf gun bit? I assume this is really for the whole third act of Captain Marvel, because Carol and Minn-Erva didn’t really throw down. Full Story

The MTV Movie & TV Awards aired last night, bringing with it an annual reminder of the march of time and our ever-growing disconnectedness with The Youths (nothing makes me feel as old as contemporary MTV, except maybe the Grammys), but there was an old-school Movie Star on hand for the awards. Sandra Bullock, one of the last capital-letter Movie Stars, won “Most Frightened Performance” for Bird Box. Full Story
