Trailers released, movie announcements made, music video dropped and the scandals that made the headlines. This week was filled with almost everything. The Critics Choice Awards 2020 were announced, celebrating the best of performances from 2019. Meanwhile, Jennifer Aniston joined Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow for a quick mini-Friends reunion. 

However, there were a few other celebrities who made a louder noise than the others. Without further ado, here's a look at a few Hollywood Newsmakers of the Week:
