This week’s pop culture winners and losers

Winners
Timothée Chalamet
Oscar darling Timothée Chalamet, whose breakout performances include Lady Bird and Call Me By Your Name, has pledged to donate his salary from his role in Woody Allen's A Rainy Day in New York to charities fighting sexual harassment. "I don't want to profit from my work on the film," Chalamet posted on Twitter. "I want to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the brave artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve." Several celebrities who have worked with Allen, many donning the anti-harassment Time's Up pin, have remained silent on the allegations against Allen made by his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow. Rebecca Hall has also decided to donate her wages from Allen's film to Time's Up. "I see, not only how complicated this matter is, but that my actions have made another woman feel silenced and dismissed," she wrote. Selena Gomez, however, has remained silent on the matter. Her mom even threw her under the bus this week for working with the director, saying the warnings she tried to give fell on deaf ears.

The Jonas Brothers
The Jo Bros' Instagram account was reactivated this week, sending Twitter into a collective fangirl frenzy with the hope of a reunion. While the chances of Nick, Joe and Kevin getting back together are slim, the prospect brought us back a simpler, happier time. Now that Zac Efron is back doing musicals, anything is possible.

Ingrid Michaelson
The singer-songwriter is about to give us an album we didn't know we needed. Michaelson, a Stranger Things super fan, is writing a record inspired by the Netflix show, called Stranger Songs. "This show brings me back to a place of safety and comfort when everything seemed simple. Especially after losing my parents, the idea of living in that space, even for an hour at a time, is not only intoxicating, it's necessary," Michaelson said in a statement. Please let there be an ode to Barb.

David Harbour
And for some more good Stranger Things news, David Harbour has agreed to officiate a fan's wedding. All it took was 125,000 retweets and the first slice of cake. "Provided date works with s3 shooting schedule, I will get ordained and perform ceremony," he tweeted back on Tuesday. "I get to read an esteemed love letter of my choosing, and after the cake is officially cut, I get the very first piece. #allthecakes," he tweeted.

Losers
Bam Margera
The Viva La Bam star was charged this week with two counts of driving under the influence after his Jan. 7 arrest. Margera's brother, Jess, mentioned talk of rehab to Page Six this week.
