Here's the Scoop...

I've really been behind in my movie viewing lately. I think I'm going to try and watch Blade Runner 2049 with week. I heard it'll probably take about that long to do so. It's a long one. Better skip the previews.

Oh, and don't forget to check out CelebrityNooz.com and vote early and often on the Celebrity Nooz poll (What movie are you most excited to see this summer?), see the 'Weekend Box Office', and 'Suggest a Celebrity' for a future issue of 'Where Are They Now?', and be part of the fun!

'Dancing with the Stars' pros Sasha Farber, Emma Slater marry
Dancing with the Stars pros Sasha Farber and Emma Slater married Sunday in Los Angeles.

The 33-year-old Australian dancer and 29-year-old British dancer tied the knot at Bella Blanca event center in North Hollywood, according to Us Weekly.

Slater wore two Rivini gowns, including a dress with lace appliqu├ęs for the ceremony, while Farber sported black pants and a white tuxedo jacket. The event space was decorated with hundreds of white roses.

Fellow Dancing with the Stars stars Julianne Hough, Keo Motsepe, Sharna Burgess and Cheryl Burke were among the guests in attendance. Burgess said in a video on Instagram Stories that she was "so excited" for the wedding.

"It's time to get up," she said Sunday morning. "Big day ahead. I'm so excited for today and some of the wonderful things that are happening."

Hough later posted a video of herself and brother Derek Hough watching her husband, Brooks Laich, dance with friends Kristy Sowin and Hayley Erbert at the reception.

"We love our people so much!!!!!!" she captioned the clip.

Farber and Slater got engaged on an episode of Dancing with the Stars in October 2016. Farber said in an Instagram post this month that he couldn't wait to start his "next chapter" with Slater.

"I cherish every day, every hour, every minute, and every second when I'm with you," the dancer wrote. "Our future is bright, and I can't wait for the next chapter @theemmaslater."


Norton praises firefighters, crew following 'Motherless Brooklyn' blaze
Edward Norton took to Instagram Saturday to give his account of an incident that killed a New York firefighter where Norton was directing a film Thursday.

Michael Davidson, a 15-year veteran of the Fire Department of New York, died from injuries he sustained on the job. Two other firefighters were also treated for serious burns.

"Many of you know that the crew of our film Motherless Brooklyn experienced a dramatic and ultimately tragic event on Thursday night, in which a fire engulfed the building we were working in and an FDNY firefighter died fighting the blaze. Thanks to the many, many people who have written to us supportively," Norton said in his online post Saturday.

Norton wrote and is directing the 1950s-set noir thriller. He also stars alongside Bruce Willis, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Willem Dafoe, Alec Baldwin, Cherry Jones, Ethan Suplee, Leslie Mann, Josh Pais, Fisher Stevens, Michael K. Williams and Robert Wisdom in the movie, which was inspired by Jonathan Lethem's novel by the same name.

Norton went on to say in his Instagram message that media reports stating the fire "started on the set" of his movie are incorrect.

"It appears to have started in the basement cellar of the building we were working in. We were filming in a bar and an apartment within the building and our crew noticed smoke rising up into where we were working," he explained.

Norton also disputed accounts crediting him with being the first one to smell smoke and raise an alarm.

"This is incorrect. I was outside setting up a shot outside the building. Our fantastic 1st [assistant director] was the first to notice the smell of smoke before anyone even saw it and it was he and others on the crew who acted decisively and quickly to try to locate the source of the smoke, evacuate cast and crew, call the fire department and then rapidly move our equipment and vehicles away so that the FDNY had clear access," he continued. "I cannot praise the professionalism of our crew highly enough. Had our team not noticed the situation and responded and alerted the fire department with the speed they did, I believe the residents of the building above would have perished. And though we described what we saw the FDNY do in our statement and articulated our feelings, it's worth doubling down. I have never witnessed firsthand that kind of bravery. I'm in awe of that kind of selfless courage. It's devastating to contemplate that one of the men we watched charging in there lost his life. Please send a prayer of thanks for the spirit and courage of Michael Davidson. Our team is committed to honoring him and assisting his family and, in due course, when we can determine with his family what form they'd like that to take, I'll pass along any information I have about a verified way people can contribute."

Margot Robbie to executive produce female-led Shakespeare series
Margot Robbie is executive producing a new Shakespeare series that retells classic stories from a female perspective.

Robbie's production company LuckyChap Entertainment is developing the 10-episode series with ABC Studios International and Australian-based Hoodlum, Deadline reported. The project will be made in Australia with filming expected to begin in 2018.

The untitled series will have a female creative team including series creator Giula Sandler who is also writing one episode. Each standalone episode will offer a modern, female twist on Shakespeare.

"The project will share diverse points of view, from writers representing the different cultures and areas within Australia, which many would not readily associate with works of Shakespeare," LukeyChap said in a statement.

"This production is a chance to create something classic yet boldly original and modern," said Keli Lee of ABC Studios International. "The works of Shakespeare are iconic and this will present them in a way they've never been seen before."

Robbie recently starred in and produced I, Tonya through LuckyChap. The 27-year-old earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress in the film about figure skater Tonya Harding.

Which actress (and daughter) said that Goldie Hawn was a 'trailblazer' in film?

Kate Hudson says mom Goldie Hawn was a "trailblazer" for women in film.

The 38-year-old actress praised Hawn on Friday's episode of Lorraine for contributing to women's progress in the entertainment industry.

"She, in the world of filmmaking, was quite the trailblazer," Hudson said of her 72-year-old mother. "She was the first female producer to produce her own material. I don't think people really know what a big of deal that is."

"It's moving forward," she added of women's progress since. "Definitely, the dialogue's out there. That's for sure at this point. Hopefully with the dialogue it will change."

Hudson said Hawn raised her to believe she can accomplish anything she puts her mind to.

"My mom always says, 'When someone says no you can't do that, you should just say watch me!' That is something that I just grew up with, thinking that's just how you do it," the star shared.

Hudson, the daughter of Hawn and musician Bill Hudson, previously called Hawn her "role model" in an interview with E! News at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in January.

"I feel lucky, blessed that I have a role model that I can call mom," the actress said.

"I have a lot of fight in me by nature," she added. "I think one of the things that my mom has taught me is to find compassion in everything I do. Kindness and that family is everything."

Hudson will next star with Maddie Ziegler in Sister, which singer Sia is directing.
