Julia Louis-Dreyfus doesn’t just play a politician on HBO’s comedy “Veep,” she is also using her personal platform to get involved in issues — namely voting. “A corrupt, self-obsessed, inept moron who somehow becomes president of the United States. That’s the character I play on HBO’s ‘Veep’,” says Julia Louis-Dreyfus in a new PSA for […]

Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, will be bestowed at an gala performance event October 21 at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall in Washington, D.C.

The last episode of “Seinfeld” baffled many viewers and got numerous negative reviews. Today, surprisingly, it plays a good deal better.
Netflix and HBO may have had the most nominations; Veep, The Handmaid’s Tale, and Big Little Lies may have won the most major awards; but the person most on the minds and tongues of those with microphones at Sunday night’s Emmys Awards was President Trump. And before you dive down to the comments section to tell me that’s why you didn’t watch the show hosted by Stephen Colbert and that Hollywood is full of libtards, let me say I understand your reaction completely. ...
Anything can happen at the Emmys! Probably! Who can say? Anyway, over the years the Emmys have seen plenty wild and wacky moments. In 2011, when Rob Lowe and Sofia Vergara were presenting the winner for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, the nominees decided to get up on stage like they were participating in a beauty pageant! Amy Poehler, Melissa McCarthy, Martha Plimpton, Edie Falco, Tina Fey, and Laura Linney all got up onto the stage and crowned McCarthy when she was the victor.
The stars of HBO’s Veep visited Conan and recalled the insults from the show that hurt them the most. The characters on Veep are known to trade savage and cutting barbs. Even though they know it’s all in good fun, the actors said they were not immune to the sting of the put-downs.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus broke out her famous Elaine dance this weekend. The Seinfeld star posted a video to celebrate Northwestern University making it to the NCAA tournament.
In case it wasn’t clear, President Trump isn’t very popular among the Hollywood set — and his recent immigration ban hasn’t helped. Christy Turlington shared a vintage photo via Instagram with the story of her family’s history. “My mother, Elizabeth, and uncle, Jaime, with their dad shortly after reuniting with him in Santa Monica, California after two years living apart,” she began.
President Trump’s executive order to ban immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries prompted people to protest at airports across the country, but that wasn’t the only place. At the SAG Awards Sunday night, many actors took to the stage to speak out.
Netflix has been on a comedy spending spree, shoveling out huge sums of cash for standup specials from Chris Rock, Dave Chapelle, Amy Schumer, and now Jerry Seinfeld. The production deal also calls for 24 new episodes of Seinfeld’s hit series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
All’s well that ends well — and for many celebrities, the Golden Globes ended perfectly… with pizza, pasta, and fries. It’s no secret that stars spend weeks (and even months) preparing to look their best for the awards show, and that a big part of that prep often involves strict diets and workout regimes. So it should come as no surprise that once the event officially wraps, many of Hollywood’s elite become mere mortals and succumb to the temptations of carbohydrates.
Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus took home her fifth Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy and paid tribute to her father, who passed away on Friday.
Emmys: Who Will Win A couple of days ago, I gave you my selections for who I think should win the Emmys in the major categories on Sunday night. Today, I give who I think will win, based on guesswork informed by historical patterns of how Emmy voters tend to think in casting their ballots. So if you have an office pool and want to be sure to win it… well, take a look at my picks, then go back and look at my should-wins, and decide for yourself. I’m confident in my choices, but I wouldn’t want you to lose money, either.
Season Five of Veep has been a roller coaster of anger, insult and emotion. Selina Meyer’s last ditch effort to secure a spot in the White House — even if it would mean she would have to eat crow and return to the vice presidency — often resembled a slapstick version of Hitler in the bunker at the end of the war. Naturally, these high-stake hilarities netted the series, crew and actors twelve nominations for the 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards, including a fourth Supporting Actor nod for Tony Hale’s performance as Gary Walsh, the bag man and floor mat to Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s President Meyer.
Jerry Seinfeld stopped by Tuesday's "Maya and Marty" to be insulted by Jiminy Glick. At one point, Jerry asked Glick if he had even ever seen "Seinfeld."
On Sunday, Veep delivered an even deeper level of cringe-worthy comedy by airing Catherine’s documentary she’s been shooting throughout the season. The self-important documentary, titled Kissing Your Sister captured both the missed moments from the season as well as the much anticipated house vote on Selina’s campaign. Like any good documentary, the piece was revealing.
