August 13, 2013 Leave a comment

The teens have spoken! And loudly, might I add, if the Teen Choice Awards polls we posted yesterday are to be believed as an accurate representation of the actual ceremony, which took place Sunday night in Los Angeles.

A few of the highlights from the telecast include a tearful Lea Michele dedicating her surfboard for Choice TV Actress, Comedy to her late boyfriend and Glee co-star Cory Monteith, and Harry Styles of boy band One Direction beating out Justin Bieber for Choice Male Hottie. The Vampire Diaries swept the Sci-Fi/Fantasy categories, with stars Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev taking home the titles of Choice TV Actor and Actress, respectively, and the series winning Choice TV Show.

2013 Emmy Nominations: 6 Biggest Surprises and Snubs

July 19, 2013 2 comments

It’s Emmy season, time for nominations that come with no rhyme or reason!

The 2013 Emmy nominations were announced this morning, and while perennial awards season fan favorites such as Mad Men, Breaking Bad and Modern Family found themselves on the short list once again, several surprising nominees snuck in.

Of course, along with some unexpected nods come some unforgivable snubs, and this year proved to be no exception.


• Are we taking crazy pills?! That is the only reasonable explanation we can seem to come up with after failing to hear Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany‘s name read in the Best Actress in a Drama category. Girlfriend tackles six roles better than most actors can handle one. This is a crime against TV! Clone Club, we’re calling a vent session, stat.

• We basically want to challenge all Emmy voters to a duel after they failed to nominate New Girl‘s Jake Johnson, who gave one of the best, if not the best, male comedic performance of the year. We also want to slap their wrists for ignoring the series in the Best Comedy category and Zooey Deschanel for Best Actress in a Comedy.

• Sure, there are a lot of great dramas this season, but it’s pretty darn upsetting to once again see amazing series such as Justified, Sons of Anarchy and The Americans, save for an acting nom for Margo Martindale for the latter, largely ignored.

• No love for Parks and Recreation in the Best Comedy category…again? Why do we even bother to dream, people? At least Amy Poehler was recognized. Knope we can!

• We are crying even more tears over Monica Potter‘s snub in the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy than we did over her amazing work as the cancer-stricken Kristin on Parenthood. Tissues, please!

• If any Glee actor was going to score a nod for the 2012-13 season, we probably would’ve guessed it would’ve been Lea Michele, who completely owned season four just as much as Rachel took New York City by storm. But the only star to be nominated? Jane Lynch for Best Supporting Actress.


• Listen, we love, love, love Connie Britton more than anyone else on this earth, but to have her work on ABC’s uneven (at best) Nashville over Maslany on Orphan Black and several other dramatic leading ladies is kind of insane. And we feel like Britton would agree. Also, the fact that Hayden Panettiere didn’t land a Supporting Actress nom for her work as emotional wrecking ball Juliette Barnes is not OK.

• Why hello, Netflix! The live-streaming site fared quite well in its first Emmy season, landing nominations for House of Cards and its stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, as well as Arrested Development‘s Jason Bateman. Looks like their release-it-all-at-once model paid off!

• Three cheers for Kerry Washington landing a nom for her work as Olivia Pope (aka one of TV’s best characters, male or female) on ABC’s Scandal. And three cheers as well for Dan Bucatinsky being recognized in the Best Guest Star category. Suck on that, Cyrus (Jeff Perry)!

• We’re giving Dowager Countess-esque side-eye to Emmy voters after seeing how much love they showered upon Downton Abbey, which is still good, but let’s face it, has become more soap opera-esque as of late. The PBS period hit scored nominations for Best Drama, Best Actor (Hugh Bonneville), Best Actress (Michelle Dockery), Best Supporting Actor (Jim Carter) and Best Supporting Actress (Maggie Smith).

• We totally expected TV It girl Lena Dunham and her series, Girls, to land their second nominations in as many years, but it quite the pleasant surprise to see Adam Driver, who was the standout in season two as Hannah’s weird and hopelessly compelling boyfriend, Adam, receive a Best Supporting Actor nod.

• We guess the reign of American Idol truly is over as it was once again left off the shortlist for Best Reality Program in favor of Dancing With the Stars and The Voice.

• Oh, and Liz & Dick scored two Emmy nods. No, Lindsay Lohan didn’t receive one, so pigs aren’t flying just yet. The TV movie was nominated for hair and makeup.

Were you sad to a see a certain show or star ignored? Any happy surprises? Sound off in the comments!

Neil Patrick Harris Is Your 2013 Emmys Host

May 30, 2013 Leave a comment

He’s the host with the most… hosting obligations. Neil Patrick Harris, star of CBS’s How I Met Your Mother and all-around good guy, has been named host of the 2013 Emmy Awards. This will be Harris’s second time hosting TV’s coveted shindig, following his 2009 turn when the awards ceremony was last broadcast on CBS.

Harris is best-known for playing Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother, but we all grew up with him as Doogie Howser M.D., whiz-kid doctor. A triple-threat in the industry, Harris has been a go-to man for awards-show hosting duties over the last several years. In addition to the 2009 Emmys, he’s also hosted the Daytime Emmy Awards (2008) and will host his third consecutive Tony Awards later this year.

I’m not usually one to throw press release quotes in stories like these, but I’ll make an exception for NPH: “I couldn’t be more honored and excited to be hosting this year’s Emmy Awards,” he said. “And what perfect timing—I’ll just do the exact same script I’m about to use for the Tonys. ‘And the Emmy for Best Revival of a Musical goes to Breaking Bad!’ See, told you it works.”

This year’s Emmy Awards will take place on Sunday, September 22 and air on CBS.

MTV Movie Awards: Best & Worst Moments

April 15, 2013 Leave a comment

It would be hard to out-quirk an award show that presents gold-plated popcorn prizes in categories like Best Shirtless Performance and Summer’s Biggest Teen Bad A**. But, while watching the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, TVLine is still endeavoring to do exactly that. So, without further ado, our picks for…

Hottest Tamale | Hostess Rebel Wilson, who early on tells us that she couldn’t believe she didn’t get Jamie Foxx’s role in Django Unchained. “I could play black; I’m really into fat white chicks,” she deadpans. “I’m inside one right now.” Later, during a discussion of body image issues, she flashes us a third nipple, and, while accepting her plaudits for Breakthrough Performance, she challenges presenter Zac Efron to give her “an Australian kiss.” “It’s like a French kiss,” she explains, “but Down Under.”

The James Franco Nighttime Achievement Award | Who else but James Franco? In the show-opening skit, the erstwhile Wizard transforms Wilson into Iron Mangina. But, he notes, since the costume was made for Mila Kunis, she’ll have to, erm, suck in.

Biggest Bleeping Cheat | Introducing the nominees for Best WTF Moment, Chris Rock and Adam Sandler drop so many F-bombs that, through all the bleeping, we have no @*#!ing idea what they’re saying. Doesn’t seem like it goes over too well, though, even with the folks who can hear: In the audience, Seth Rogen looks like he’s wishing his seat would swallow him whole.

Cutest Butt of a Joke | Channing Tatum’s. The heartthrob’s pert posterior appears twice within the first half hour. Mind you, other bits of his anatomy also get their fair share of attention. “He’s got a magic mic,” Wilson cracks, “that I’d like to sing into.”

The Gen Y Jessica Tandy Award | Emma Watson. Thank God the camera keeps cutting to the Hogwarts grad alive and well in the audience – otherwise, during the Trailblazer tribute to the ingénue, we’d worry that she’d died. (But hey, these are the MTV Movie Awards – Maggie Smith never stood a chance, did she?)

Worst Excuse For Bothering to Put On ChapStik | Bradley Cooper. Accepting his and Jennifer Lawrence’s Best Kiss award for Silver Linings Playbook, the hunk doesn’t lock lips with either of his presenters, Steve Carell or Amanda Seyfried. What a buss’t!

Most Surprising Comeback | Amanda Bynes. Okay, Amanda Bynes isn’t really there. But doesn’t Ke$ha look just like the down-on-her-luck sitcom starlet, especially paired, as she is here, with Snoop Lion, lotsa billowing pot smoke and an outfit straight out of Kmart’s Huggy Bear Collection?

Biggest Loser | Russell Crowe. Aside from being notoriously crankypants, who’d he piss off? Not only does Franco cheekily refer to him as “my favorite Australian singer,” but Wilson later cracks that universally panned Les Miserables warbler couldn’t attend the ceremony because “he’s working on his new movie – Pitch Not Perfect.”

Biggest Misstep Not Involving Stilettos | Wilson. An extended bit in which she uses her stuffed koala Chlamydia’s X-ray vision on all-stars in the audience falls surprisingly flat. (Capt. America Chris Evans is wearing panties and desperately needs a wax, we see, for instance.) The kind of vision really needed here is foresight.

The “And They Say Romance Is Dead” Award | Will Ferrell. After Aubrey Plaza tries to steal his Comedic Genius popcorn (“Just like we rehearsed it,” he says but we don’t quite believe), the funnyman rebounds by bringing his family on stage – played by a group of Asian actors that (wink, wink) we know are not his family – and renewing his wedding vows with his disinterested “wife.”

Best Sport | Taylor Lautner. Twilight’s teen wolf claims his Shirtless trophy sipping a Big Gulp and rocking a middle-aged paunch. “This is like winning the Oscar,” he deadpans before giving shout-outs to his fellow topless stars: “McConaughey… Tatum… Lena Dunham.”

The “Sh–My Dad Says” Award | Accepting his MTV Generation popcorn, Django star Foxx charmingly notes that his 19-year-old daughter is not only beautiful (and is she – wow!) but single. But, he adds, no doubt sending her embarrassment soaring even further off the charts, “Dial it down a little bit on that dress.”

Best Grizzly Adams Impersonation | Liam Hemsworth. Introducing an in-show commercial – sorry, preview – for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, he sports such a thick beard, he could be auditioning for a ZZ Top movie. (And why is the camera so close to his face, it’s practically bumping into his nose?)

Most Cunning Linguist | Joss Whedon. The Avengers director says he and his superheroes are humbled by their Movie of the Year honor. Then, realizing that they are actually the opposite of humbled since, hey, they won, he searches for just the right word and decides that they’re actually “Bieber’d to be standing here.”
