Emmy’s Wrap-Up

It’s Tuesday, so on a normal week, you’d just be getting over a case of the Monday’s. But this week is different. Today, for the first time since 1976, we are spending our Tuesday wrapping up the Emmy’s. This was a monumental year for TV: Breaking Bad and Mad Men ended their legacies and a transgender actor was nominated for the first time in history. So as the anticipation eats away at you, let us begin.



Drama series
My Prediction/WINNER: Breaking Bad, AMC
Downton Abbey, PBS
Game of Thrones, HBO
House of Cards, Netflix
Mad Men, AMC
True Detective, HBO


Comedy series
WINNER:Modern Family, ABC
The Big Bang Theory, CBS
Louie, FX
Orange is the New Black (Netflix)
Silicon Valley (HBO)
My Prediction: Veep (HBO)

Not that I don’t think Modern Family deserves this, in fact it’s my second favorite sitcom of all time (RIP How I Met Your Mother,) but people are LOVING Veep. I haven’t caught on to the phenomena, but I’m thinking they gave it to the vets instead of the HBO rookie because MOFY is an overall fantastic show. Not saying Veep isn’t, but let’s be honest: Julia Louis-Dreyfus runs things. Without her, that show would not be what it is.


Actor, drama series
My prediction/WINNER: Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad (AMC)
Matthew McConaughey, True Detective (HBO)
Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom (HBO)
Woody Harrelson, True Detective (HBO)
Jon Hamm, Mad Men (AMC)
Kevin Spacey, House of Cards (Netflix)


Actress, drama series
My prediction/WINNER:Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife (CBS)
Robin Wright, House of Cards(Netflix)
Lizzy Caplan, Masters of Sex (Showtime)
Claire Danes, Homeland (Showtime)
Michelle Dockery, Downton Abbey (PBS)
Kerry Washington, Scandal (ABC)


Actor, comedy series
My prediction/WINNER: Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory (CBS) 
Louis C.K., Louie (FX)
Don Cheadle, House of Lies (Showtime)
Ricky Gervais, Derek (Netflix)
Matt LeBlanc, Episodes (Showtime)
William H. Macy, Shameless (Showtime)


Actress, comedy series
WINNER: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep (HBO)
Lena Dunham, Girls (HBO)
Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie (Showtime)
Melissa McCarthy, Mike & Molly (CBS)
Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation (NBC)
My prediction: Taylor Schilling, Orange is the New Black (Netflix)

As always, this category brings it. But Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a four-time Emmy winning actress. Taylor Schilling really did get her name out there, but I personally think she would have deserved it more if she was nominated for the second season, instead of the first. And while the rest of the nominees are without a doubt hilarious, this one was a given, even if I felt a bit biased.


Supporting actor, drama series
WINNER/My prediction: Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad (AMC)
Jim Carter, Downton Abbey (PBS)
Josh Charles, The Good Wife (CBS)
Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones (HBO)
Mandy Patinkin, Homeland (Showtime)
Jon Voight, Ray Donovan (Showtime)


Supporting actress, drama series
WINNER: Anna Gunn, Breaking Bad (AMC)
Christine Baranski, The Good Wife (CBS)
Joanne Froggatt, Downton Abbey (PBS)
Lena Headey, Game of Thrones (HBO)
My prediction: Christina Hendricks, Mad Men (AMC)
Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey (PBS)

Let me make this very clear: I LOVE Anna Gunn and believe wholeheartedly that she deserves this, but with Mad Men coming to an end this year, the academy could have thrown something her way. Luckily, she’s got two BIG awards to come home with every night.


Supporting actor, comedy series
My prediction/WINNER: Ty Burrell, Modern Family (ABC)
Andre Braugher, Brookyn Nine-Nine (Fox)
Fred Armisen, Portlandia (IFC)
Adam Driver, Girls (HBO)
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Modern Family (HBO)
Tony Hale, Veep (HBO)


Supporting actress, comedy series
WINNER: Allison Janney, Mom (CBS)
Mayim Bialik, The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
My prediction: Julie Bowen, Modern Family (ABC)
Anna Chlumsky, Veep (HBO)
Kate McKinnon, Saturday Night Live (NBC)
Kate Mulgrew, Orange Is the New Black (Netflix)

Honestly: who watches Mom? Granted, Allison Janney is spectacular in whatever she does, but really? I would have thought Mayim Bialik would have taken it home before her, but I would have loved for Julie Bowen to win alongside her TV husband. Because who doesn’t love Phil and Claire?


Guest actor, drama series
Joe Morton, Scandal (ABC)


Guest actress, drama series
Allison Janney, Masters of Sex (Showtime)


Writing, drama series
Moira Walley-Beckett, Breaking Bad, AMC


Directing, drama series
Cary Joji Funkunaga, True Detective, HBO


Guest actor, comedy series
Jimmy Fallon, Saturday Night Live (NBC)


Guest actress, comedy series
Uzo Aduba, Orange is the New Black (Netflix)

Louis C.K., Louie, FX

Competition reality program
The Amazing Race (CBS)
The Voice (NBC)
Dancing With the Stars (ABC)
Project Runway (Lifetime)
So You Think You Can Dance (Fox)
Top Chef (Bravo)

The Amazing Race was the most predictable winner here, but I still think America’s Got Talent got rigged. They totally deserved a nom, if not a win. 


Reality host
WINNER: Jane Lynch, Hollywood Game Night (NBC)
Anthony Bourdain, The Taste (ABC)
Tom Bergeron, Dancing With the Stars (ABC)
Cat Deeley, So You Think You Can Dance (Fox)
My prediction: Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn, Project Runway (Lifetime)
Betty White, Off Their Rockers (NBC)

I knew I should’ve started watching Hollywood Game Night! Despite my prediction, I didn’t expect Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn to win. After all, Project Runway has been going down the stinker for quite some time, but I’m happy for Jane Lynch. She is a phenomenal comic and apparently an even better reality host.


Structured reality program
My prediction/WINNER:Shark Tank, ABC
Antiques Roadshow
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Food Network
Mythbusters, Discovery
Undercover Boss, CBS
Who Do You Think You Are?, TLC


Unstructured reality program
WINNER:Deadliest Catch 10, Discovery
Alaska: The Last Frontier
, Discovery
Flipping Out, Bravo
Million Dollar Listing: New York, Bravo
Wahlburgers, A&E
Wild Things With Dominic Monaghan, BBC America


Unstructured reality programs are not exactly my forte, but from what I’ve heard, Deadliest Catch is what’s up.



Variety series
My prediction/WINNER: The Colbert Report, Comedy
The Daily Show, Comedy
Jimmy Kimmel Live!, ABC
Real Time With Bill Maher, HBO
Saturday Night Live, NBC

But honestly: what about Jimmy Fallon?


Writing, variety series
The Colbert Report, Comedy


Directing, variety series
Don Roy King, Saturday Night Live (Jimmy Fallon), NBC


Variety special
AFI Lifetime Achievement Awards: A Tribute to Mel Brooks (TNT)


Writing, variety special
Sarah Silverman: We Are All Miracles, HBO


Directing, variety special
Glenn Weiss, 67th Annual Tony Awards, CBS


My prediction/WINNER: Fargo, FX
American Horror Story: Coven, FX
Bonnie & Clyde, Lifetime
Luther, BBC America
Treme, HBO
The White Queen, Starz


WINNER/my prediction: The Normal Heart, HBO
Killing Kennedy, National Geographic
Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight, HBO
Sherlock: His Last Vow, Masterpiece/PBS
The Trip to Bountiful, Lifetime


Actor, miniseries or movie
WINNER: Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock: His Last Vow (Masterpiece/PBS)
My prediction:
 Billy Bob Thornton, Fargo (FX)
Chiwetel Ejiofor, Dancing on the Edge (Starz)
Idris Elba, Luther (BBC America)
Martin Freeman, Fargo (FX)
Mark Ruffalo, The Normal Heart (HBO)

I never got in to Fargo, but from what I’ve heard, this was Billy Bob’s role of a life time. And considering they killed him off in season one, I thought he would have been the without-a-doubt winner. But Benedict Cumberbatch sure is sexy…and that ALS bucket challenge of his took the cake.


Actress, miniseries or movie
My prediction/WINNER: Jessica Lange, American Horror Story: Coven (FX)
Cicely Tyson, The Trip to Bountiful (Lifetime)
Helena Bonham Carter, Burton and Taylor (BBC America)
Minnie Driver, Return to Zero (Lifetime)
Sarah Paulson, American Horror Story: Coven (FX)
Kristen Wiig, The Spoils of Babylon (IFC)


Supporting actor, miniseries or movie
WINNER: Martin Freeman, Sherlock: His Last Vow (Masterpiece/PBS)
My prediction: Matt Bomer, The Normal Heart (HBO)
Colin Hanks, Fargo (FX)
Joe Mantello, The Normal Heart (HBO)
Alfred Molina, The Normal Heart (HBO)
Jim Parsons, The Normal Heart (HBO)

I just thought The Normal Heart was going to sweep the awards this season but hey, Sherlock sure did make a name for itself.


Supporting actress, miniseries or movie
WINNER: Kathy Bates, American Horror Story: Coven (FX)
Angela Bassett, American Horror Story: Coven (FX)
Ellen Burstyn, Flowers in the Attic (Lifetime)
Frances Conroy, American Horror Story: Coven (FX)
My prediction: Julia Roberts, The Normal Heart (HBO)
Allison Tolman, Fargo (FX)

I repeat: “I just thought The Normal Heart was going to sweep the awards this season,” and besides, Julia Roberts is always a winner in my eyes.


Writing, miniseries or movie
Steven Moffat, Sherlock: His Last Vow, Masterpiece/PBS


Directing, miniseries or movie

Colin Bucksey, Fargo (FX)

I’m Baaaaaack!

Hey ya’ll! I know it’s been FOREVER but I am back and better more broke than ever. In the time we’ve been apart, I’ve graduated Hofstra with my Bachelor’s in Broadcast Journalism, my first puppy passed away and I’ve landed a gig over at Sirius XM, where I’m currently working on the Derek and Romaine Show on OutQ channel 106. So now that I’m a big, bad college alumni, I figured I’d give the blog a little makeover. So from now on, I’m going to be giving my spin on Hollywood’s top stories and I fully encourage you all to chime in. But all of this is going to have to wait until tomorrow, because it’s Saturday night, and a bottle of wine is calling my name. Cheers!


Meet Axl Jack Duhamel, and more news to note

The Marquee Blog

Today’s news you might’ve missed:

  • With a name like Axl Jack, it makes sense that his first photo would include headphones. Adorable, tiny baby ones: [Fergie’s Facebook]
  • Apparently, a Miley Cyrus costume on Halloween might carry an unintended message. An online survey of single guys, who may also be 12-year-old dunces, shows that the majority believe women dressed as Miley are most likely to hand out more than candy. [LAT]
  • But before you Google “Miley Cyrus Halloween costume,” a fair warning to stay away from the name “Lily Collins.” [HuffPost]
  • Fox’s new show “Sleepy Hollow” was a certifiable cluster of crazy, but that ended up being what viewers wanted: the premiere had 10 million viewers at 9 p.m.
  • Katy Perry’s newest single is darker than “Roar” — hence the title, “Dark Horse” — but we predict it’ll be just as addictive:

Carly Rae Gets Down and Dirty

Carly Rae Jepsen

Back in December, rumors surfaced that there were nudie pics found on Carly Rae Jepsen’s computer, which ended up being hacked and tampered with.

The allegations ended up being false, but there is now a REAL video that shows the Call Me Maybe singer going down on an unidentified man.

Jepsen asks the man “Are you filming this?” but she doesn’t seem to have a problem that he is filming her; she even starts dancing seductively and flashes her chest for the camera.

While the 27-year old is old enough to make her own decisions, she should probably learn that she’s in the Hollywood spotlight and should watch what…and who she does.

Perfume So Good, You Can Eat

I don't want to brag but I feel like I can accomplish Pizza Hut perfume's scent naturally #

Pizza fans, beware! This scent could cause cannibalism.

Pizza Hut Canada has released a limited edition perfume which smells of “freshly baked, hand-tossed dough.”

There have been 110 bottles of Eau de Pizza Hut put on the market, with no current plans to sell the product “en masse.”

While the thought of smelling like a pizza may seem unappealing to some, consumers have been eager to get their hands on the fragrance. According to a news release, over 100,000 people have checked out the page on Facebook.

Pizza Hut follows the lead of Burger King, who in 2008 retailed a “meat-flavored body spray,” Flame, by BK.

This sounds innovative and all, but why pay for a pizza perfume when you can work at a pizzeria and smell like it for free?

Topanga and Cory are Back!

corey and topanga

If you’re a 90’s kid, then your favorite couple was Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence on “Boy Meets World.”

It has been announced that the two childhood stars, Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, will be reclaiming their roles for the sequel series “Girl Meets World” on Disney Channel.

Fishel didn’t shy away from her excitement. She tweeted on Saturday, “Just want you guys to know that @BenSavage and I have talked and we’ve decided…Thanksgiving is going to be delicious this year!”

Savage also sent out a tweet yesterday, saying “I’m going to be a father! Well, on TV at least. The ‘Boy Meets World’ sequel is officially happening!”

“Girl Meets World” will be a spinoff of the hit ABC comedy, which will follow Topanga and Cory’s 13-year old daughter, Riley.

Despite doubts that the show won’t live up to its prequel’s expectations, William Russ, who formerly played Cory’s dad Alan Matthews has no doubt the show will succeed.

He told HuffPost TV that Disney and creator Michael Jacobs “are a great team and will produce an exceptional show.”

Let’s hope the best for the “Girl Meets World” pilot, but never forget the original.

Courtney Stodden Stripped of “Reality”

Courtney Stodden in a VERY tight dress in some unknown shopping snaps

Usually she’s the one doing the stripping, but it looks like Courtney Stodden will have to just be a housewife this Thanksgiving. The 18-year old blonde bombshell was let go of her premiere gig at one of  West Hollywood’s hottest gay bars, The Abbey, scheduled for Thanksgiving Eve.

First of all, who knew she could sing? This is more surprising than her marrying her sugar daddy husband back in 2011.

Known as an” international pinup girl, VH1 Reality star and pop culture icon” (I beg to differ,) Stodden was pulled from The Abbey from what her mother calls “too much press and controversy.”

While Stodden’s management believes The Abbey cancelled her performance due to their owner, nightlife giant SBE’s fear of the anxious crowds and paparazzi, the West Hollywood gay fan base is as heartbroken as she is. According to her rep, Courtney “has a huge gay fan base and truly loves and adores everyone in the community.” As she looks for “alternate opportunities…to make her debut club performance,” she won’t be singing her single, “Reality;” she’ll just be trying to live it.

She might not be able to do a pole song and dance for “the biggest party night of the year,” but maybe this cancellation should help her get a leg up on the stuffing and mashed potatoes.

We understand she is upset and all, but maybe her father husband can make her feel better. After all, father Doug knows best.
