Emmys 2017: Winners Of The 69th Annual Emmy Awards
Empress Eve   |  @   |  

Hulu The Handmaid's Tale TV show - winner 2017 Emmys

The 69th Annual Emmy Awards ceremony was broadcast live tonight on CBS from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, with Late Night‘s Stephen Colbert hosting for his first time.

The Handmaid’s Tale and Veep took home the big wins in their respective categories — drama and comedy — while the limited series Big Little Lies, starring Nicole Kidman (who also won); Donald Glover and his series Atlanta; and long-running sketch series Saturday Night Live all took home their fair share of awards as well. For SNL, guest star Alec Baldwin grabbed the Emmy for his popular repeated portrayal of President Donald Trump.

Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus made history tonight when she snagged her sixth consecutive win for best actress in a comedy series, which is the most Emmy awards won by a performer for one role. The HBO show went on to win the Best Comedy Series award.

See below for the list of Emmys 2017 nominees and winners.

Oscars 2017 Logo

It’s that time of year again when we all gather around the TV for a 3 – 4.5 hour showcasing of everything great… and maybe not so great about Hollywood. That’s right, it’s the 89th Annual Academy Awards. This year we are celebrating a hugely diverse crowd of nominees… which has NOTHING to do with the controversies of the last two years in which no minority actors were nominated. Below you will find my insta-reviews, blurbs I wrote about each Oscar nominated film immediately after finishing them in the order I watched them, my rankings, and predictions. So let’s get to it…

Grammys 2017: Winners & Highlights: Metallica, Lady Gaga, Prince, A Tribe Called Quest

Grammys stage

The Grammys were held on Sunday night, February 12, 2017, and hosted by James Corden at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, with the live broadcast on CBS starting at 8pm EST (5pm PST).

Below are some of the highlights and clips from the broadcast of The 59th Annual Grammy Awards, along with the full list of Grammy winners at the end.

Here’s my usual official Grammys warning: I hate country music, I strongly dislike pop music, and I mostly have no idea about new music that’s not hard rock or heavy metal. I can, though, be objective when talking about a performance when it happens to be really good. With that, when I say I’m writing about the “highlights,” well, it’s the highlights according to me, a metalhead who watched the Grammys, a show that doesn’t even bother to televise the Heavy Metal category. With all of the deaths in the music world in 2016, I was sure that there’d be a lot of tributes, and I was intrigued by the tease of the Metallica and Lady Gaga team-up. Turns out, this year was mostly a snooze-fest, but there were some energetic performances that made up for everything else.

Stranger Things Netflix SAG Awards

If there is one thing you can expect from these guild awards, it’s the unexpected. The outcome of these awards, such as the SAG Awards, are oftentimes a precursor to the winners of the Academy Awards. On Saturday, the PGA handed out multiple Screen Actors Guild awards to La La Land, and even the Netflix series Stranger Things earned top honors. But the SAG Awards showed us that even films you never thought could win, can pull off a well-deserved upset. Last night, Hidden Figures, Fences, Moonlight, and Stranger Things earned all kinds of awards, beating out some stiff competition.

Check out the full list of SAG Awards winners here below.

‘Arrival’ Getting Re-Released For Your Pre-Oscars Viewing Pleasure

Amy Adams in Arrival

Now that the Oscar nominations have been announced, studios will be making an effort to get audiences to watch some of the films that have earned nominations in some of the top categories.

One move that they generally do is to re-release a film in theaters for a limited time. It’s been done many times before, and Paramount will do it for Arrival. The Denis Villeneuve sci-fi film has been nominated for eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture. However, it managed to snub Amy Adams, for whatever reason I cannot figure out why. But find out more about the re-release below.
