‘Finding Dory’ just keeps swimming… details in your Daily Scoop.

Audiences continued swimming into theatres for ‘Finding Dory.’  Everyone’s favourite blue tang fish remained at number one at the box office bringing in another $ 73.2 million to bring its North American total to $ 286.5 million in just 10 days.  Independence Day: Resurgence settled for second place bringing in $ 41.6 million, down almost 9 million from the first film’s opening back in 1996.

The BET Awards were handed out last night in Los Angeles and Beyoncé made a surprise appearance to open the show with a performance with Kendrick Lamar.  Queen Bey also picked up four awards including: Best Female R&B/Pop Artist and Video of the Year for ‘Formation.’  Drake was also a big winner taking home three awards including Best Male Hip Hop artist.

Justin Timberlake got some backlash after tweeting, “Jesse Williams tho… Inspired BET2016.”  A fan replied saying, “So does this mean you’re going to stop appropriating our music and culture? And apologize to Janet too.” “Oh, you sweet soul. The more you realize that we are the same, the more we can have a conversation. Bye,” Justin said in response. He later apologized for this statement.
