The Church of Scientology wasn’t a fan of Alex Gibney’s scathing documentary about their organization, but Emmy was – HBO film Going Clear: Scientology and Prison of Belief took home three Creative Arts Emmys. And backlash from the church isn’t keeping Gibney from pushing forward. “There’s a lot more material that I’ve received and a lot more information to come out,” he told journalists Saturday. Since the IRS has yet to revoke its tax exemption, said Gibney, “there’s more to be done.”

Guess Donald Trump is a little too busy to tangle with NBC. The real estate mogul/GOP presidential candidate announced via Twitter on Friday that he had purchased the net’s half of the Miss Universe Organization and “settled all lawsuits against them.” NBC and Univision scuttled plans to air the pageant, part of a co-venture with Trump, after Trump made derogatory comments about Mexican immigrants in June. Trump didn’t mention his $10 million lawsuit against Univision.
