Look. I’m not going to spend a lot of time screaming about this because the Golden Globes are stupid and should be ignored. But where the HELL is Russian Doll? What about Veep? Where’s When They See Us? You’re going to give nominations to The Loudest Voice in the Room but not When They See Us? Where is Schitt’s Creek? Or Watchmen, for fuck’s sake? All I’m saying is that this is a VERY white list. Very white. So white. The whitest.

I MEAN, Big Little Lies? The Politician? The Kominsky Method? ARE YOU SURE? ARE YOU VERY SURE?

Also, I’ve bitched about this before but how are you going to compare Henry Winkler’s performance in Barry to Stellen Skarsgard’s in Chernobyl? Come on now.

The Critics Choice nominees also came out and it’s better — in large part because they allow more than five nominees in the categories — but Russian Doll STILL gets snubbed which is some Grade A nonsense.

Bill Hemmer is your new Shep Smith.

Y’all, Amy Sedaris was on The Mandalorian. I won’t say much more for fear of spoiling something, but if you’d like to see more, here you go.

Netflix’s Twitter account created some chaos on Twitter this weekend, and y’all nasty.

Manifest is returning soon enough. Here’s what we know about the upcoming season of the most ridiculous show on network TV. Wake me up when CGI wolves are involved.

Please stop calling this man’s office:

 

Julia Louis-Dreyfus regrets Elaine’s wardrobe on Seinfeld, but as a woman who lived through the 90s, YOU HAVE NOTHING TO BE ASHAMED ABOUT, HONEY.

An update on Mrs. Fletcher: the creator and star are all for a second season if HBO is up for it.

STEVE HARVEY. DAMMIT.

Fox News’ Pete Hegseth was banned from Twitter after he posted the Pensacola shooter’s manifesto. This is an interesting story, because on the one hand, the manifesto is newsworthy, as there is some question (but not really) about whether this was terrorism or not. On the other hand, it is spreading a terrorist manifesto, even if it was done so in a critical way. Social media is hard!

Simon Cowell is lawyering up. Gee, why?

I can understand talking shit about the Harry Potter movies, but DO NOT SPEAK ILL OF THE DOWAGER COUNTESS, MADAM.

For you old school Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers: The Sultan will not be marrying his younger girlfriend, Shiva, after all.

I’m just going to leave this here. If you know, you know.

Please do not threaten Tommen.

Goddammit, Chris Soules, go away. Absolutely not, dude.

Oh, Henry Thomas, come on.

Get some help, Amanda Detmer.

Impeachment Corner!

It’s a super busy day today: the House Judiciary Committee is holding (maybe) its final hearing on the Ukrainian affair as I type this. They are hearing from the Republican and Democratic counsels for the Intelligence Committee, the lawyers who helped conduct the hearings last month.

I will have more to say about this tomorrow once the hearing concludes, but basically, this is just another chance to tell a cohesive story about what happened before the Judiciary Committee completes the articles of impeachment and sends them to the House for a vote. President Chickenshit was invited to participate in this hearing and defend himself but he’s too busy, trapped in a bathroom somewhere, flushing the toilet over and over again.

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said this “maybe” the final hearing and noted that while the vote schedule hasn’t been set, it’s possible they could vote on impeachment by Thursday or Friday.

I’m guessing it won’t happen until next week, but STAY TUNED.

DUELING GIULIANI REPORTS! This is a long article about Rudy Giuliani and his role in leading President Dum-Dum to impeachment. And here the Washington Post reports that Attorney General Bill Barr warned President Don’t Tell Me What to Do that Giuliani was a liability for the White House and that he wasn’t being well-served by America’s (Dumbest) Mayor. Could this be the famous “animated conversation” that Barr and President Screamy was having a few weeks ago? Or was it related to the next item:

The Justice Department’s Inspector General released a 400-page report on the start of the Russia investigation — you know, the one that was launched by the Deep State to take down Then-Candidate Fraudster — and it found that whaddya know, there was “no documentary or testimonial evidence” of political bias, and the FBI had an “authorized purpose” to launch the investigation. The Inspector-General did find that there was some sloppiness in individual agents’ actions but that there was no grand conspiracy. Attorney General Bill Barr and President QAnon are having a rough day.

MORE TOMORROW, once we have our hands around today’s events.
