Major snubs were unleashed Thursday morning as the nominations for this year's Emmy Awards were announced. Here are the biggest shows and performers left out in the cold — and the most unexpected nods too.
The nominations for the upcoming Emmy Awards were announced on Thursday morning, and Emmy voters behaved like TV critics.
GQ decided to go in for a ferocious bit of trolling in its new recent comedy issue, releasing a cover that lampoons the much-maligned cover of Vanity Fair’s January Hollywood issue. The GQ cover features comedians gown-wearing Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae and Sarah Silverman in a mangled mess of obviously PhotoShopped limbs — and bears a striking similarity to the Vanity Fair mashup of Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman earlier this year that seemed to show an extra leg.
From Britain's answer to “Silicon Valley” to Disney’s cross-network premiere of “Descendants 2,” here are the five shows you won't want to miss this week.
The first season of Divorce wasn’t exactly a pop-culture phenomenon — indeed, I may have to remind you that this is the Sunday-night HBO sitcom that’s not Issa Rae’s Insecure, but rather the one from Sarah Jessica Parker — and it’s a show that elicits strong feelings. The slow, painful process of the dissolution of the marriage of Frances (Parker) and Robert (Thomas Haden Church) reached a turning point — a twisty, turny turning point. It almost seemed as though show creator Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe) decided to do some hasty, last-minute rearranging of the cast and narrative.
In "Insecure," Issa Rae plays a woman named Issa who teaches at a Los Angeles middle school, lives with a boyfriend she’s having doubts about, and constantly mulls over her life options with her best friend, Molly (Yvonne Orji). On this slender premise, show co-creators Rae and Larry Wilmore have hung a beautifully detailed, often very funny, always lovable sitcom. If “lovable” seems like a weak or sentimental word to use, it’s not — Issa Rae radiates charm and decency in portraying the show’s Issa as a young woman trying to find love in her private life and respect in her professional life.
