Golden Globe win­ners Andy Sam­berg and San­dra Oh host this year’s cer­e­mony, hon­our­ing the best in film and tele­vi­sion.



A des­per­ate Rick is forced to ask Tony for help. Tony hauls the fi­nal piece of his mil­lion-dol­lar sec­ond dredge from This­tle Creek and pre­pares to re­build it.



Ed­die can’t stand to be around Ce­bile and yearns for a life with Rais­ibe, but Rais­ibe has no place for him.

A JOHN KELLY tell-all? Ken­dall Jen­ner on Capi­tol Hill? Here’s what we pre­dict will make news in the com­ing year. Who’s up next on the rock star book­shelf? We think John Kelly, Pres­i­dent Don­ald

Trump’s long­est-serv­ing chief of staff, which is say­ing a lot, has many sto­ries to tell.

The man played an out­size role in other peo­ple’s books, from call­ing the pres­i­dent an “id­iot” (ac­cord­ing to Wolff) to giv­ing Omarosa the boot (ac­cord­ing to Omarosa), so it’s high time he con­trolled his own nar­ra­tive. The pub­lic is wait­ing.

With a pres­i­den­tial elec­tion loom­ing, 2019 will prob­a­bly be the year when Cory Booker (49) and Cleo Wade (29) make it or break it. Booker, the ju­nior Demo­cratic se­na­tor from New York, is an unof­fi­cially of­fi­cial con­tender for the race to the White House, and Wade, an In­sta­gram poet and au­thor, is pop­u­lar with mil­len­ni­als. If they take the leap, it’ll be a power move that dom­i­nates head­lines.

Who will be the next mem­ber of the Kar­dashian clan to bring re­al­ity-tv cam­eras to Wash­ing­ton? We’re go­ing with Ken­dall Jen­ner, the su­per­model sis­ter, who opened up about hav­ing panic at­tacks. Big names – Car­son Daly, Michael Phelps – have been out­spo­ken about anx­i­ety dis­or­ders. We smell an A-list del­e­ga­tion and a news con­fer­ence brew­ing. Our money is on spe­cial ad­vis­ers to the pres­i­dent, Ivanka Trump and her hus­band, Jared Kush­ner.

While they’re the rare staffers to have em­braced Wash­ing­ton, the city hasn’t re­turned the favour.

Though loy­al­ists who have pho­to­geni­cally weath­ered the Trump storm, they might be at the end of their ropes.

Which sur­prise fa­mous per­son will be an early Hol­ly­wood sur­ro­gate? Kim Kar­dashian is ba­si­cally a Wash­ing­to­nian. What about Ar­i­ana Grande? (The Thank U, Next cam­paign slo­gans alone? We mean, c’mon.)

Not to men­tion, in the mu­sic video for the sin­gle, the pop star, pre­tend­ing to be iconic law stu­dent Elle Woods, can be seen read­ing from the le­gal tome Im­mi­gra­tion and Refugee Law and Pol­icy.

There’s no doubt 2019 will have its own “ripped from the head­lines” movies in the­atres.

While the 2016 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion wasn’t that long ago, a be­hind-the-scenes look at how it all went down would be a smart move. Alec Bald­win and the cast of Sat­ur­day Night Live are prob­a­bly writ­ing the script.

West is prob­a­bly the one celebrity no politi­cian wants at their rally. But the hip hop icon has his opin­ions, and his wife, Kim, is a bona fide pol­i­cy­maker now, so Ye ain’t go­ing away. A great tar­get for West’s tweet­storms? An­drew Gil­lum. The ris­ing po­lit­i­cal star and for­mer mayor of Tal­la­has­see is a fel­low Gen Xer who is try­ing to buck the sys­tem. Diddy and DJ Khaled love him so why not Ye?

Michelle Obama ba­si­cally rewrote the book on book tours last year but some­one else has to take the crown, right? For­mer Supreme Court Jus­tice John Paul Stevens and for­mer House speaker John Boehner have mem­oirs on the hori­zon.

What about for­mer pres­i­dent Ge­orge W Bush who has be­come a pop cul­ture fig­ure with his mint can­dies and mod­ern paint­ings? Maybe this is a stretch. Mrs O will prob­a­bly be wear­ing that crown: her arena tour has been ex­tended to May.
