Sterling K. Brown Got To Finish His Emmy Speech

| 0 comments

-It was BS (and incredibly bad optics) to let Nicole Kidman speak forever, but to play Sterling K Brown off in the middle of his Emmy speech. But he finished it backstage and it was glorious.

-Feud’s Jackie Hoffman having a fake meltdown after losing to Laura Dern was my favourite part of the Emmy’s.

-Also, did anyone else notice that when Kidman talked about her kids in her speech, she left out the ones she’d adopted with Tom Cruise? Do you think they’ve cut ties with her completely for being an SP?

-Overall, the Emmy’s were great. When Game of Thrones isn’t allowed to play, you end up with a bunch of diverse winners like Riz Ahmed, Donald Glover, and Lena Waithe making history, Hulu breaking through big time, and female-focused fare taking the lead. (That Sean Spicer appearance was total crap, though.)

-This photo of Elisabeth Moss celebrating with Jon Hamm makes me happy.

-I was so annoyed by Shailene Woodley‘s tone-deaf quotes on the red carpet. Maybe don’t slam TV at an event celebrating TV, mm-kay?

-The Walking Dead’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan and One Tree Hill’s Hilarie Burton confirmed they are expecting baby No. 2 with some red carpet belly cupping.  I always forget those two are together, but I dig it.

-Milo Ventimiglia took his rumoured new girlfriend (a marketing coordinator for Stella McCartney) as his Emmys date.

-Ben Affleck plus-one’d it last night.

-Grey’s Anatomy alum Kate Walsh revealed she was diagnosed with a brain tumor two years ago, but she’s fine now and is urging everyone to get checked.

-It was a tumultuous weekend on social media for Kevin Hart. He admitted to cheating on his pregnant wife, posting an emotional video apologizing to his wife and kids following an alleged extortion attempt by the woman he hooked up with.

-Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri got a major boost for its Oscar prospects on Sunday by winning TIFF’s People’s Choice Award. I voted for it. (I will say it’s weird that no one seems to be talking about the fact that the TIFF app — which is where you vote — did not list Call Me By Your Names as an option. It was clearly a bug, but I bet the results would have been different if the app worked.)

-Here’s our first look at David Tennant and Michael Sheen in Good Omens, Amazon’s Neil Gaiman series. I can’t wait!

-Audiences hate Jennifer Lawrence‘s ‘Mother!’, giving it a CinemaScore of F. Do you know how hard it is to get a score that low?!

-Leah Remini says Jada Pinkett Smith is secretly a Scientologist and that Tom Cruise likes to host adult games of hide and seek.  Sounds totally normal…

-Kelly Clarkson is so not a fan of Dr. Luke that she turned down potential millions in royalties just they wouldn’t share a writing credit. Bless her.

-Amber Tamblyn capped off her killer week with an op-ed in the New York Times in response to being called a liar by actor James Woods.  “I have been afraid of speaking out or asking things of men in positions of power for years.”

-Wait wait wait — there’s a tribute album for Tegan & Sara‘s The Con? And CHVRCHES does a cover of “Call It Off”? Just take my money now.

-I don’t watch horror movies but this trailer really builds.

-Speaking of trailers, I’m not sure if I can handle a new Blake Lively one on a Monday. Knock yourself out, though:
