On the menu this weekend: plenty of drama, hold the butter.

Here are five things you might've missed this weekend when you were busy ogling the supermoon:

5. Liev & Naomi: the Weekend's Cutest Couple'

If Hollywood was high school, Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts would be the lovebirds parading down the hallway holding hands. They certainly kept it cute Saturday in Brooklyn, where they linked up for the ultimate movie date at the Tropfest short film festival. See their photo!

4. Don't You Want To Hold These Baby Pandas?

A giant panda gave birth to twins on Saturday – and we bet they can hear us aww-ing all the way from their home in southwest China. The cubs are the first pair of the endangered species born in the world this year. Get ready to squeal.



3. What to Know If You're Betting on the Royal Baby Name

We may still be dreaming up nicknames for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's newborn North, but round two of Name That Kid is in full swing as the world awaits the birth of the royal baby. A bookmaking firm in the U.K. has received an increase in bets on the name Charlotte, changing the odds from 12-1 to 6-1. Read before you gamble.

2. Is Johnny Depp Copying Brad Pitt?

If imitation truly is the sincerest form of flattery, Pitt has a major fan in Depp, who stunned his own fans in Lawton, Okla., for an advance screening of The Lone Ranger. The actor's Friday surprise for the members of the Comanche Nation mirrored Pitt's recent string of appearances at World War Z screenings. A total fan-tasy.

1. Paula Sends 'Love and Best Dishes' After Firing

It was a buttersweet, er, bittersweet farewell for Deen, who thanked the Food Network for 11 "great years" less than 24 hours after the channel announced it was letting its longtime star go following her admission of using a racial slur in the past. "Love and best dishes to all of y'all," she added. Read her full statement.
