HBO’s “Succession” leads all Emmy nominees with 25 nods.  Apple’s “Ted Lasso” and HBO’s “The White Lotus” are tied for second with 20 each.  Chadwick BosemanJessica Walter, and Norm Macdonald got posthumous nominations.


“Stranger Things” got nominated for Best Drama Series, but no actors were recognized.  That feels like a major injustice, given the stellar work that Sadie Sink put in as Max this season.


Selena Gomez also got left out, even though “Only Murders in the Building” is up for Best Comedy Series, and both Steve Martin and Martin Short were nominated.


Speaking of snubs, “Yellowstone” came away with NOTHING.  And in their final seasons, “Black-ish” and “This Is Us” were locked out of everything but the technical categories. “Bridgerton” and “1883”,  also absent from the major categories.


“The Emmys” will air live on September 19th on both NBC and Peacock.



Martin Lawrence tells Essence magazine that a fourth Bad Boys movie, with Will Smith, is in development. He says he and Will are making at least one more film for the franchise.


“Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” screenwriter David Koepp tried to talk Steven Spielberg and George Lucas out of having aliens in the movie, but they wouldn’t budge.


Bronze statues of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman from “Breaking Bad” will go on display in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will attend the unveiling later this month.


Chris Hemsworth refrained from eating meat before a kissing scene with Natalie Portman in the new “Thor”because she’s vegan.  She says, quote, “That was so thoughtful . . . He’s just a very nice person.”



Cardi B and Offset gave their daughter Kulture $50,000 in cash for her 4th birthday.  Offset posted a video of Kulture holding the wad and calling it a “ticket”, which is slang for a million dollars.


Ashanti wrote a children’s book for kids who don’t have traditional names.  She says, quote, “I want kids to feel like, ‘Wow, I’m so lucky that I get to have something different that no one else has.  My name is unique, and my name has a meaning.'”


Someone Tweeted a picture of a trailer with the logo “Alanis Landscaping” on it, and commented, “You Oughta Mow”.  Then Alanis Morissette re-Tweeted it and added, “and I’m here, to remind you of the grass you left when you went away . . .”

But leave it to Weird Al Yankovic to have the last word.  He re-Tweeted Alanis and said, “Hey!  Stay in your lane!”
