2015-emmy-nominations

Television shows airing between June 1, 2014 to May 31, 2015 were eligible for the 2015 Emmys. Orange is the New Black‘s Uzo Aduba and So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley woke up early this morning to announce the 2015 Emmy Award nominations. The Academy certainly threw a few curveballs to say the least. There were plenty of surprise nominations and snubs.

HBO dominated the field, leading the pack with 126 nominations. ABC was in a distant second with a third of that at 42 nominations. Streaming services Netflix and Amazon did well with 34 and 12 respectively. Game of Thrones leads the pack with 24 nominations. American Horror Story: Freak Show also racked up numerous nods (19) including one for departing fan-favorite Jessica Lange.

While Ellie Kemper missed the cut for Best Actress, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt scored big. Not only did it get honored for Best Comedy, but Tituss Burgess and Jane Krakowski landed in the supporting categories, as did Jon Hamm and Tina Fey for special guest stars.

The amazing Tatiana Maslany finally scored some Emmy love for her stunning work in Orphan Black. Comedian-of-the-moment Amy Schumer was finally recognized as well. Not only is her show in the running for Best Variety Sketch Series, but she’s also in the Best Actress Comedy race. Other pleasant surprise nods include Kyle Chandler for Bloodline, Liev Schreiber for Ray Donovan, Niecy Nash for Getting On and Viola Davis for How To Get Away With Murder.

Taraji P. Henson took her expected spot in the Best Actress Drama. However, Empire was relatively shut out with only two more nominations in minor categories. No Best Drama nod for the season’s breakout hit. Read below to see the most notable snubs. And there were plenty for sure.

The 67th Primetime Emmy Awards will air on FOX this year on September 20. Adam Samberg hosts this year’s festivities.

Just because NBC cut ties with Donald Trump, it doesn’t mean that Celebrity Apprentice is necessarily dead. The peacock network is looking to forge ahead but with a different personality at the helm. Though talks are still in the early stages, there is a short list of personalities that executives are eying. Find out who below.

dating-naked-season-2

Love is in the air in the first promo for VH1’s breakout hit show. Literally!!! A bunch of nude couples are shown jumping in slow-motion, popping champagne, tapping butts and other playful acts.

Though Season 1 only featured heterosexual couples, it appears some same-sex action will go down for the sophomore run. That’s the assumption I have, based on the promo.

Dating Naked premieres on July 22 at 9pm on VH1. Watch the cute video below. VH1 describes it as “a naked slow-motion film celebrating love in all its forms; witness romance at 1000 frames per second.”

It’s a sad, sad, sad day for Real Housewives of Atlanta fans.

The reuniting of NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak for a new reality series was music to Bravo viewers’ ears when the network announced The Road to Riches several months ago. The show would’ve featured the two frenemies on a road trip adventure from Atlanta to Los Angeles. Sadly, it’s no longer happening. Oh so close, and yet so far. Find out why below.

Lady Gaga Rings In American Horror Story: Hotel

The first of what will undoubtedly be numerous promos has arrived. Being that Lady Gaga is joining the American Horror Story franchise, not surprisingly, the clip is all about Mother Monster. A silver-painted hand wearing an ornate glove appears from the side to ring a bloodied bell. It’s probably not Gaga’s actual hand, but the short clip makes it known she’s checking into American Horror Story: Hotel.

The clip premiered during the FX drama’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Several of the cast members were on hand for a discussion with fans and media. The most notable tidbit I found interesting is that Sarah Paulson will play a villain this time around, marking the first time she’s done so for AHS. With Jessica Lange out, someone had to step into her shoes. Paulson will be wickedly delicious in her new role. No doubt!

“When you work with someone like her, you sign up for something that is larger than life, and I think that’s what you want. Part of her role involves fashion,” creator Ryan Murphy said during the Comic-Con panel. “You want Lady Gaga to look a certain way. The designers have been coming out of the woodwork with looks for her.”

miss-usa-2015-questions

Because of Donald Trump’s huge mouth, I missed this year’s Miss USA pageant. NBC which normally airs the annual event cut ties with The Donald after making racist remarks about Mexicans. Wise move on their part, but bummed I missed one of my favorite yearly guilty pleasures.

Thanks to Zap2It, I got to witness two contestants royally flub their answers during the always entertaining question round. Miss Nevada Brittany McGowan and Miss Rhode Island Anea Garcia didn’t fail of epic proportions like Miss South Carolina Teen USA Caitlin Upton with her infamous ‘maps’ answer, but still very cringeworthy.

Check out their flubs below. Just in case you were wondering Miss Oklahoma Olivia Jordan walked away with the crown. What’s interesting about the Top 5 was three were of Latin descent. Definitely ironic given Trump’s recent remarks. Of course though, the leggy blonde won the tiara. LOL.

The Heroes Are Hunted In Heroes Reborn Full Trailer

For months now, NBC has slowly leaked tiny bits and pieces regarding their Heroes revival series. On the last day of San Diego Comic-Con, the peacock network unveiled the first full trailer. And it doesn’t disappoint.

The three minute-plus clip features enhanced humans being heavily persecuted and hunted down. While there are plenty of new faces for Heroes: Reborn including two vigilantes played by Zachary Levi and Judith Shekoni, there’s a healthy dosage of familiar faces. Fan favorites from the original series including Masi Oka, Greg Grunberg, Sendil Ramamurthy and Jack Coleman reprise their roles for the highly-anticipated series.

I was a fan of the first season of the original run but quickly lost my interest during its sophomore season. This new promo has me extremely excited for the return. I definitely plan on adding this to my Fall viewing schedule. Check out the trailer below. Heroes: Reborn resurrects on NBC on September 24.

Someone’s getting some new threads.

The network just unveiled a promotional picture featuring Oliver Queen in his new crime-fighting outfit. He’s back to his traditional green but ditches the sleeves for his new look. I’m up for anything to show off Stephen Amell’s guns :)

Amell along with his cast including Emily Bett Rickards, Katie Cassidy, Paul Blackthorne, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, and John Barrowman attended San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend. During the panel, a highlight reel was shown. Check out the clip below, along with the cast’s discussion panel talking all things Team Arrow.

Arrow returns on The CW on Wednesday, October 7. Check out the video after the jump
