But WHY Did He Punch A Kangaroo?

Kangaroo

Did you see the video of the hardcore Australian dude punching a kangaroo to save a dog? It's cartoon-like.

A few media outlets have found Greig Tonkins, a zookeeper at the Taronga Western Plains Zoo in New South Wales, Australia. Apparently he and a few friends were on a hunting trip in New South Wales. He says, "This big buck got a hold of my friend's dog. It just grabbed him." The Zoo confirmed that Tonkins is an employee, and noted that it was investigating the incident.

Or the whole thing could be fake ... Watch.

8 Of The Top 10 Intstagram Posts In 2016 Were Made By One Celeb

An iPhone

Selena Gomez may be taking a break from social media but that isn't stopping her from owning it like a boss. The singer and actor has been named Instagram's most influential user of 2016. She has the most followers—103 million and counting—but she also had eight of the ten most-liked pictures of the year. Eight!

But if we hung out at pajama parties with Taylor Swift, we'd have a lot of followers too. Just saying, our #squadgoals are different.

The Oscars Finally Have A Host

Jimmy Kimmel
The Oscars finally have a host: Jimmy Kimmel will emcee the 89th Academy Awards.

Why did it take so long? Critics say it could be due to the fact that Chris Rock hosted last year and it was dominated by backlash over its second straight year of all-white acting nominees.

Bob Dylan Sending A Surrogate To The Nobel Prize Ceremony

Bob Dylan
In an effort to make sure the Nobel Prize committee never picks a musician again, Bob Dylan says he's too busy to attend the ceremony in Stockholm on December 10th to pick up his literature prize. But it's cool, he's sending a stand-in.

Rock goddess Patti Smith will be there in his place and will perform Dylan's "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall." Bob has also prepared a speech to be delivered by someone else. So he's not quite "phoning it in," but close.

Leonardo DiCaprio finds his joy in tormenting his friends. Actor Tom Hardy revealed that he'll be getting a tattoo, thanks to a bet with DiCaprio.

Hardy tells Esquire UK, "I haven't got it yet - because it sucks."

VIDEO: Jennifer Aniston Shows Up On SNL To Protest Impression

Jennifer Aniston
I think Vanessa Bayer's impression of Jennifer Aniston as Rachel Green from Friends is hilarious. Apparently Jennifer doesn't think so (at least in a joking way).

Jennifer showed up during Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update to confront Vanessa:



Backstage everyone was plenty friendly:

Tom Brady Now NFL's All-Time Win Leader

Tom Brady
It's easy to hate on Tom Brady. He has crushed a lot of our favorite NFL teams over the years. He's married to a supermodel. Ugh, right? But he's pretty freakin' impressive.

With the Patriots' win over the Rams Sunday, Tom Brady's regular and post-season win total is 201. Until yesterday he was tied with Peyton Manning. Congrats to Tom!
