Haven’t begun watching the third season of Orange Is The New Black yet? Perhaps after seeing this clip, you’ll binge watch this weekend.

In one of the Netflix series signature flashback scenes, viewers get a peek at Officer Bennett’s (Matt McGorry) life before being a Litchfield prison guard. During his time in the military he had a hard-on for “Hollaback Girl.”

McGorry entertains his unit by dropping it like it’s hot to the Gwen Stefani hit. Watch all the hot shirtless action go down below.

Orange Is The New BACK!

Crazy Eyes, Poussey, Red, Nicky, (and I suppose Piper if you’re still into her) are back and this time it’s a whole new jailhouse ballgame. Gone are the semi insane storylines of prison breaks and constant murder threats: this season seems to be a lot more focused on women, nature vs. nurture, and the place of criminals in our society. Don’t worry, this isn’t a spoiler article: mostly because I LOATHE when people can’t comment on something without giving away plot details… but also mostly because I’m only like 5 episodes deep. Guess I’m not that superfan I mentioned earlier! Really though, the blame falls on the girls: click through and I’ll tell you why.

>Orange Is The New Black received 12 Primetime Emmy Award nominations for its first eligible year including a win for Uzo Aduba for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. The Netflix series probably won’t snag as many nods when the 2015 Emmy nominations are announced in June. The Academy rejected its appeal to compete as a comedy and will now have to face off in the far competitive drama category.

All your favorites return with exception of Jason Biggs who’s flew the coop. Check out below what the ladies of Litchfield including Piper, Boo, Crazy Eyes, Taystee, Daya and Red are up to for the series’ third outing.

Orange Is The New Black returns with brand new episodes on June 12, 2015. It would be wise to leave that day clear to binge watch the entire season. I intend on doing so.

Orange Is The New Black’s Emmys Petition Denied

In: Donovan, TV Shows

The Emmys recently instituted a new rule change that dictates all hour-long shows will be considered dramas while half-hour shows fall as comedies. However, networks can petition the Academy to have a program be placed in an alternate category.

Orange Is The New Black snagged 12 nominations in the comedy categories last year, winning three. The hit Netflix series will now be officially classified as a drama after having their petition denied by a nine-member panel who watched all episodes of the current season.

It’ll be interesting to see if OITNB can snag any Emmy noms in the drama category. Even more interesting is who’ll fill the void in the comedy ones. Find out below which hour-long shows were approved by Academy.

With all the attention focused on movies this time of year, I thought I’d give some loving to programs on the small screen. Truth be told, the American Film Institute’s picks for Top 10 best films are pretty much status quo with all the recent critics awards, The only exceptions being Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Wolf of Wall Street and Tom Hanks’ Saving Mr. Banks finally entering the Oscar race. I really didn’t feel like talking about another 12 Years A Slave win ;)

On the television side, the AFI made some room in their Top 10 for new blood. Orange Is The New Black, The Americans, Masters of Sex and Scandal were just a few first-timers who made the cut. Despite being the highest-rated of the three, American Horror Story: Coven was snubbed. Also noticeably absent were Girls, Homeland and Modern Family. All of which have been included on the list since their respective freshman year. Is this the beginning of the end for the Emmy-winning ABC sitcom’s winning streak?

Based on the AFI’s mandate, below are the ten outstanding films and 10 outstanding television programs deemed culturally and artistically representative of the year’s most significant achievements in the art of the moving image. See if you agree with their list.

Orange Is The New Black Available Now On Netflix

In: TV Shows

While it doesn’t come with as much fanfare as Arrested Development or House of Cards, Netflix’s new original series Orange Is The New Black is worth giving a shot. Not only is it winning critics over, but the on-demand Internet streaming media provider is so bullish on the dramedy that it ordered a second season even before premiering. That’s almost unheard of.

Orange Is The New Black is the brainchild of Weeds creator Jenji Kohan. It follows Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), an upper-middle class bisexual woman who finds herself incarcerated for a crime she committed 10 years prior. It’s actually based on Piper Kerman’s memoir sharing her experiences serving a 14-month sentence in a women’s prison in 2004. While the main character is based on Kerman, the rest of the characters are fictional. Rounding out the cast are Jason Biggs, Kate Mulgrew, Laura Pepron and Natasha Lyonne.

If the trailer above piques your interest, all thirteen episodes of Orange Is The New Black are available online on Netflix beginning Thursday at 12 a.m. PDT.
