Tonight is the big, 85-hour-long Emmys main event, but because there are approximately 9,876,988 Emmys to give out, the Creative Arts Emmys have been happening all week long. Nicole Byer hosted the five-night event, and she was up for the Emmy for Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Competition Program, making her the first Black woman to be nominated for that award. But RuPaul won that Emmy, as Nicole stood by thinking, “They got me to host this shit and didn’t even give me the Emmy?!” No, apparently, Nicole knew she was no match for Ru!
NBC The Peacock has released another trailer for their upcoming Saved by the Bell reboot, which follows a new generation of teens at Bayside High. The first teaser dropped back in April and gave us a lot of Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez as adults with teenaged kids. This trailer focuses more on the kids and fast Tracey Wigfield-style jokes. Tracey, the reboot’s creator/writer, worked on 30 Rock, The Mindy Project, and was the showrunner for the cancelled-too-soon Great News.
The trailer features zero signs of that Lil’ Blonde Bitch Zack Morris, who apparently went on to become the goddamn Governor of California (Arnie’s all, “What, like it’s hard?”). But don’t worry, IMDb says Mark-Paul Gosselaar appears in only three of the ten episodes. Phew! Continue reading
In case you didn’t know, people in Europe have STRONG feelings about Eurovision. And people in the US have STRONG feelings about everything but Eurovision, so it’s a bit of a surprise to learn that an American version of the iconic annual song contest is in the works (but not too surprising because, after all, if there weren’t a minimum of 50 talent-based reality shows on the air, what else would moms watch?)
Past winners of Eurovision have included ABBA, Celine Dion, and Conchita Wurst. But I’m sure they’ll have nothing on Florida’s entry, which will probably just be a bunch of people whining about why they have to wear a mask while sitting on alligators.
Friends came out in 1994 and even then people pointed out that it made NYC look like a place where really no people of color existed and where you could afford a gigantic ass Manhattan apartment from only working 5 hours a week. Well, Lisa Kudrow spoke out about that. The lack of POC thing. Not the whole “they must’ve been undercover drug dealers to afford that apartment” thing.
It seems like every minute, we mere mortals get another peak into the glamorous life of country music queen, and living legend, Dolly Parton. Not only is she reading us bedtime stories during the COVID-19 pandemic, and pushing Playboy to include her on their cover once again, but she’s revealed her husband’s three-way dream with Jennifer Aniston, oh ya and that episode of the Queen Latifah show where she busted out her sickening rap skills…Yes, Dolly is an absolute angel of honesty and transparency who never disappoints with the well-intentioned goods. But she kept a HUGE secret from the world and now it’s out and changes EVERYTHING (not really).
The Will & Grace revival, or whatever you want to call it, finished up its final season on Thursday––fourteen years after its original ending––and for some, the move is bittersweet. For others, not so much. In addition to leaving their characters behind for good, Debra Messing and Megan Mullally can also put an end to the greatest acting of their respective careers because neither has to continue pretending to like the other one!
