It was a big week for haute Hollywood, as the 2014 Emmy nominations were announced. Before most of the world (outside of those L.A. residents who also happen to be TV stars) was awake, Mindy Kaling and Carson Daly were on hand to make one of the most anticipated announcements of the year. And without further ado, here are the nominees—and some of this week’s other top headlines, too.

TOM HANKS GETS HIS GROOVE ON AT SCOOTER BRAUN’S WEDDING
The most hilarious news we heard all week was that our Haute 100 member, Tom Hanks, was hanging out with Justin Bieber. Yes, you heard that right—both were guests at Bieber manager Scooter Braun‘s wedding. The best part about the hangout session was a video—taken by Justin—of Hanks singing “This Is How We Do It.” Inevitably, the video went viral. “Haha Tom Hanks singing “This Is How we do it” dressed like a Rabbi lol #thatdancetho,” Bieber wrote.
