Happy Friday, y’all! I hope your weekend ahead will be a delight.

If you missed it, you can catch up on all of our Emmys coverage here. This upcoming Sunday is the Tonys, but it’s very unclear how many people will be actually there….? We will find out! (It’s kind of a weird Tonys. Half of it is on Paramount Plus, one category is ONLY Aaron Tveit but he could still lose? I’m not completely sure what is happening.)

Unrelated, but we had a lovely conversation this week about what we’re all looking forward to for fall.

Super interesting: The Five Year Anniversary of the Brange Split. To wit: “Yesterday marked the five year anniversary of the end of Brange. Angelina Jolie filed for divorce on September 15, 2016, just before Emmy weekend. The news didn’t break until the following Tuesday. At around 1015am ET. I remember it clearly because it was the gossip equivalent of a nuclear bomb, and this is not hyperbole. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, together, were already one of the biggest celebrity stories of the last 25 years. The announcement that they had broken up after 12 years was monumental. And, at the time, no one saw it coming. Despite years and years of rumours and tabloid headlines about their relationship, which fueled an entire industry for a decade, they’d managed to keep their sh-t contained until, well, it could no longer be contained. ” [Lainey]
