It’s time for the TV-industry folks to start deciding who should be nominated for an Emmy. The nominating process began on Monday and runs through June 26, with the nominations to be announced on July 13. During this time, all the networks mount campaigns to remind voters of the possibilities (best of luck to you, Scorpion!).

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story co-star Riz Ahmed was on the Tonight Show and told Jimmy Fallon about how his trademark nervous intensity almost cost him the role of Bodhi Rook. Gareth Edwards really kindly asked me to audition, sent me some script, some, like, pages for a scene to do. Well, Ahmed basically did the same thing.
A long time ago (2007), on a basic cable channel far, far away (the defunct G4), Olivia Munn became famous for posing in a Leia-esque bikini.
