The big news today is the January 6 hearing are the Emmy nominations. They were announced this morning, and I will get around to looking at all the categories and giving my two cents, but that’s going to take me a minute. In the meantime, here’s the complete list for you to check out. A reminder: some shows won’t make the cut but only because they did not air in the eligibility window. So don’t look for The Boys, Handmaid’s Tale, Westworld, or The Crown among the nominees. 

Some interesting facts about this year’s nominees:

HBO leads the networks with 140 nominations. Netflix was in second place, with 105. Hulu came away with an impressive 58, Apple TV+ with 51, Disney+ scored 34, and Prime Video had 29.

CBS has the most of the broadcast networks with 29; NBC had 28; and ABC and Fox each had 23 nominations. The CW is nowhere on this list.

Succession had the most nominations with 25. 14 of those were in acting categories, breaking a record.

Ted Lasso was nominated for 20 Emmys again.

Only Murders in the Building received 17 nominations, the most of any freshman series.

Stranger Things was nominated for 13 Emmys, but none in an acting category. Some fans are pissed.

Quinta Brunson became the first Black woman to receive three comedy nominations in the same year for Abbott Elementary. She was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series, Lead Actress in a Comedy a,nd Writing for a Comedy Series. Abbott Elementary was nominated for seven altogether.

Selena Gomez is only the second Latina to be nominated as an executive producer for Only Murders in the Building.

Zendaya became the youngest two-time acting nominee, and the youngest producer nominee for her work on Euphoria.

There are a bunch of actors who were nominated twice in acting categories this year: Julia Garner, Bill Hader, Sydney Sweeney, Rhea Seehorn, and Harriet Walter.

Squid Game became the first non-English series to score a nomination in Outstanding Drama Series.

Chadwick Boseman and Jessica Walter earned posthumous nominations for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance.

Almost half of the Outstanding Director nominees were women.

Late Night with Seth Meyers was nominated this year. Yay!

Dave Chappelle: The Closer — the controversial special where he attacked trans people — was nominated for Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded). Boo.

Albuquerque is erecting statues of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman to inspire meth cooks everywhere.

David Chase revealed that Tony Sirico was the only Sopranos actor to ask a line be changed, and it wasn’t even one of his own lines. Apparently, another character calls Paulie a bully, and Tony took offense. Chase removed the line.

Joseph Quinn, who you might know as Eddie from Stranger Things, has become a fan favorite for obvious reasons. Recently, he attended a comic con in the U.K. where he made a point to spend time talking to the fans who paid for his meet and greet. The staff at the con began urging him to cut the chit-chat because he was so swamped, and fans were pissed — at the con, not Quinn.

Then, during his panel, a fan thanked him for being so generous with his time, and this happened:


Jeremy Allen is well aware of the similarities between Lip and Carmy, but he knew he had to take the role on The Bear, lest he hate whoever took the role instead of him. Also, thanks to this show, everyone is attracted to line cooks now.

People are pretty upset about the treatment Taylor Hale is receiving on Big Brother from the other contestants.

Q’orianka Kilcher, actress from Yellowstone and The Alienist, has been charged with workers’ compensation fraud. She claimed she had been injured on the set of Dora and the Lost City of Gold, and couldn’t work, but then worked on Yellowstone, so.

Fox News is gonna Fox News:


Jerry Harris of Cheer fame has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for soliciting sex from minors and sexually assaulting a minor. He also will be added to the sex offender registry, and attend a sex offender treatment program.

Vince McMahon reportedly paid $12 million to four different women in hush money.

Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty has been sentenced to one year of house arrest after failing to register on the sex offender registry in California.

Again, not getting too deep into the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard trial, because I don’t need that mess in my life, but apparently, one of the jurors was an imposter — not the person who was actually summoned. Amber Heard, understandably, wants a new trial. Depp’s team is like, “Eh, it’s no biggie. Don’t worry about it. Gimme my money.”

Meanwhile, Depp has privately settled an assault case with a crew member who alleged he punched him twice on set. Interesting that this gentleman hasn’t been called a liar and become the victim of a social media campaign attacking him. I wonder what the difference is.

One of R. Kelly’s victims is claiming in a legal document that she’s engaged to him. Gross.

Paul Haggis gave an interview to an Italian newspaper in which he attempts to discredit the woman who accused him of rape. Gross.

Lauren Boebert is out here saying that her husband — who was arrested for exposing himself to two young women in a bowling alley — had no choice but to show his penis to them. Really, he’s the victim here. Gross.

I love Florence Pugh. Obviously, wearing a sheer dress like this is going to create controversy. But what is revealing (pun intended) is how many men felt free to criticize her not for wearing something so scandalous, but for how small her breasts are — as if they are entitled to only seeing larger breasts on women. Anyway. Men, be better.
