The contenders for the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards have been announced, and we can’t help but pore over the picks from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. So who unexpectedly got tapped, and who majorly got snubbed?
If there’s one thing we don’t like about HBO’s hit series Veep is that it’s currently off the air. After a hilarious and sharp-tongued ten episodes, the season three finale left fans clamoring for more as Vice President Selina Meyer—played by Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus—embarked on the next step in her presidential career. How she got there was an amazing journey involving Iowa campaign stops, visits to London, sex with a very steamy Christopher Meloni, penning (or not penning) a new book, and sparring with the other presidential candidates.
As a special bonus, VH1 has exclusive deleted scenes only available to fans who purchase the digital copy of the series when it becomes available on iTunes and Google Play on July 7. Read more…
Today marks the 10th anniversary of our beloved Friends series finale. Cue the “I’ll Be There For You” theme song and let all that nostalgia sink in. Sigh. We wish more than anything we would get a reboot about our six favorite Manhattanites, but while we’re in the spirit, let’s celebrate the television remakes and adaptations that did happen. Starting with the ones we couldn’t (and still can’t) get enough of.
Is Jodie Foster a married woman? Camilla, the Duchess Of Cornwall, suffers a tragic family loss, and the stars of MTV’s new show head to Big Morning Buzz Live.
Fans see Julia Louis-Dreyfus in a way they never have before, Jon Hamm confronts the ghost of dating shows past, and Dwayne Johnson helps us get amped for the 2014 MTV Movie Awards.
With Veep‘s third season beginning tonight on HBO, we couldn’t help but think about the similarities between fictional vice president, Selina Meyer, and our actual V.P., Joe Biden. They’re both former senators, they both took on vice presidential duties after vying for the highest office in the land, and they both have penchants for fumbling their public statements.
If you’re not convinced that politicians sometimes miss the mark when connecting with the public, watch the clip above to catch the cast of Veep recall their favorite real-life political flubs.
After months of being forced to pay attention to actual politics, Veep finally returns on Sunday night. While the possibility of Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) becoming the first female president of HBO’s fictionalized version of the United States is high, we have our own favorite candidate we’d love to put in the ring: Jennifer Lawrence. Do you think the VP’s collection of partly-able staffers would be able to teach her how to avoid falling while walking a red carpet? Maybe.
After the coldest winter, Scandal returns tonight–hopefully with much more of Scott Foley in a towel. With a new season of House of Cards now available on Netflix and Homeland and Veep continually in the TV conversation, D.C.-centric shows are taking over our DVR. And we’re not exactly mad about that.
On Friday, Sesame Street released a video of Peter Dinklage (Game Of Thrones) visiting the show to teach kids about “Simon Says.” His segment prompted us to think back on all the times that our favorite Emmy nominees made guest appearances on the series. And we were surprised by just how many stopped by: everyone from Alec Baldwin to Julia Louis-Dreyfus have made their way down to Sesame Street.
Ladies (and gentlemen-ladies), how would you feel about a second season of Girls? Or Veep? As of today, HBO has decided to renew both freshman shows for a 10-episode second season, a pretty quick decision considering they’ve only been on the air for a matter of a few weeks. Girls has so far been attracting a respectable 3.8 million viewers a week, while Veep has been pulling down 3.7 million. So our question is: are you are psyched for another season of Lena Dunham and Julia Louis-Dreyfus? Are you quietly thinking that only one (the one you love) should have made it to their sophomore season? Have you been pretending to watch them so you have something to talk about at lunch, when in reality all you watch is TLC’s My Strange Addiction? Not that we’d blame you, ladies (and man-ladies).
Alternatively, maybe you’re still so exhausted from the non-stop build-up to Girls that you haven’t mustered up the energy to have an opinion about another season of it? If so, let the ladies of Rex (Rachael Mason, Kerry McGuire and Stephanie Bencin) and a million other lady comedians run through every possible opinion for you in their video “S— Girls Say About The Show Girls” video. You too, dude-ladies. You’re welcome.
