It's just an award show right? WRONG. I mean yes, you're right, but considering the amount of time, money and planning that goes into these events, it better be the best thing or the closest to best thing ever. And Monday night's 2014 Emmys was not the best thing ever. Not even close.
To celebrate her 30th birthday, DC Comics is bringing She-Ra back as a regular addition to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe with an updated look that reflects her ability to pick up buildings and mountains and throw them at jerks.
On Monday, Kerry Washington was up for her second Lead Actress nomination for her role as Olivia Pope in Scandal. On the red carpet, Shaun Robinson asked Washington if she could wrap her head around potentially being the first African American woman to win in the category. But Kerry had another thing on her mind.
Last night, the 66th annual Emmy Awards took place in Los Angeles. On the red carpet, there were a variety of sartorial approaches: some went minimalistic and understated; some were sequin-encrusted; others wore voluminous gowns. At least one look made me exclaim so loudly in confusion that my pet bunny fell over.
Not sure if you caught last night's Emmys , also known as three hours of Breaking Bad winning everything, but the world just realized Cary Joji Fukunaga is hot. Welcome to the party, guys. The True Detective director won an award but what he really received was the Internet's collective panties.
When I was a kid, we had two cats who came and went as they pleased via a cat door in our basement. Their names were Georgie and Gracie, which isn't really relevant to the story—I'm just mentioning it because RIP, MY SWEET LADIES—and we were confused because they seemed to be not only eating massive amounts of food, they'd also started scattering it all over the kitchen floor at night.
Sofia Vergara heard all the criticism and claims of sexism during and decided to respond to the haters. Or maybe just the one hater that started it all.
A year and a half ago, Simone Biles was a last-minute substitute at the 2013 American Cup. There she placed second behind 2011 junior national champion Katelyn Ohashi after losing an early lead with a fall from the beam. At that meet, Biles couldn't win with a fall. But at this weekend's national championship in Pittsburgh, Biles was so far ahead of the field that she won by four points, or one fall per apparatus. And it would've been five had she not come off the beam on an aerial during her last routine of the competition.
Lena Dunham had one of the most talked about looks on the red carpet at Monday's Emmys. Sporting her new blonde hair , the Girls star donned Giambattista Valli for the awards show.
Representation matters, and the Emmys, if compared to other award shows (especially the Oscars), have been pretty proactive about identifying LGBT representation. And this year, there is a quite respectable group of seven LGBT actors nominated for playing LGBT characters.
Well, the Emmys are still on an hour after they should have ended, so perhaps it's fitting that they started scraping the bottom of the barrel. We have now entered the unfunny, sexist part of the program.
Here's what you should do if you accidentally rate someone's looks five stars when you didn't mean to: Anything but this. Literally, anything. Pouring Iodine all over your body and taking an ice bath is better, and that's just the first thing that came to mind. What are you doing, dude? What are you doing?
This woman's dedication to song is irrepressible and someone should pay her to do more of it. Or less of it. Or at least to get a better camera and purchase a novelty pig snout so that she does not have to tape up her nose for her wonderful singing videos on the YouTube. Go Hogs!
Well, Seth Meyers did one funny thing for sure while hosting the Em: he got Billy Eichner to do a special version of Billy on the Street for the Emmys. As usual, Billy killed it.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus proved once again why she deserves all the awards ever. Earlier in the evening while presenting an award with Bryan Cranston, they did a very funny bit about Julia not remembering Bryan guest starring on an episode of Seinfeld years ago.
Lizzy Caplan clarified today that she is "not" dating her Bachelorette costar James Marsden, because she's too busy preparing her keynote speech for the KILLJOY CONVENTION. (Whatever, Caplan. That's not what I heard. In my fanfic.)
If you have nothing to do over Labor Day, why not turn on your computer and spend it watching THE MIRACLE OF LIFE? All holiday weekend, Animal Planet will be showing a live feed on its website of various species giving birth and spoiler alert: it will be intense, slimy and have a damn cute ending.
In today's Tweet Beat, Britney Spears loved Katy Perry's tribute to her infamous denim evening wear look, Jenny Slate has an editorial suggestion for Shape and Idris Elba is still sexy.
Today in DON'T FUCK WITH SNAKES, a chef in southern China died when a spitting cobra he was preparing to cook bit him on the hand...20 minutes after he decapitated it. Chef Peng Fan was making snake soup—a regional specialty made with spitting cobra meat, which reportedly has "spectacular health benefits"—and was bitten when he picked up the snake's head to throw it away.
Grab a bottle of rosé and gather 'round because it is time for the 2014 Emmy Awards. Let's watch very highly paid celebrities attempt to stay on their best behavior!
