The Emmy nominees were announced yesterday, and HBO’s “Succession” led the pack with 25 nods. Apple’s “Ted Lasso” and HBO’s “The White Lotus” are tied for second with 20 each. “Squid Game” picked up 14 nominations, including Best Drama Series. Several cast members got acting nods, too. “Stranger Things” got nominated for Best Drama Series, but no actors were recognized. 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, and came away with three total nominations between them. “Bridgerton”, “1883”, and “Moon Knight” were also absent from the major categories.
You get an Emmy nomination…and YOU get an Emmy nomination! Two of Hip Hop’s best are in line to pick up an award for the best in television. Kanye West captured an Emmy nod on Tuesday as the Netflix documentary Jeen-Yuhs was nominated for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series. Ye was an executive producer on the project. Dr. Dre was nominated for the Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Variety Series or Special Emmy for the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
“The Emmys” will air live on September 19th on both NBC and Peacock.
The city of Albuquerque, New Mexico is honoring its two most famous meth dealers with bronze statues. Obviously, I’m talking about Walter White and Jesse Pinkman from “Breaking Bad”. The show’s creator, Vince Gilligan, had the statues commissioned in 2019. And now he’s giving them to the city, because that’s where the show takes place. They’ll be displayed in the local convention center. There will be a ceremony on the 29th of this month, and Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will attend . . . along with some other “special guests.” They issued a statement saying they’re glad the statues will be inside, so they’ll be, quote, “protected from pigeons depositing their critiques on our heads.”
Martin Lawrence has his sights set on another Bad Boys movie. In an interview with Ebony for the magazine’s July cover story, the 57-year-old actor and comedian says he’s “got one more” installment in the pipeline, “at least.” The franchise kicked off in 1995 and has so far produced two sequels alongside his co-headliner Will Smith. A fourth movie would come after Smith made headlines for slapping Chris Rock at the 2022 Academy Awards. Lawrence “dismisses speculation” that the next Bad Boys is canceled as a result of the incident. Of the original, Lawrence said, “For us to come together and prove that we can deliver — that two Black stars, two sitcom stars, could make money at the box office [was huge].”
Chris Hemsworth doesn’t just play a hero on the screen. He is one in real life. Natalie Portman says that Chris refrained from eating meat before one of the kissing scenes in “Thor: Love and Thunder”, because she’s vegan. And she didn’t even ask him to. Quote, “He’s really nice. The day we had a kiss scene he didn’t eat meat that morning because I’m vegan. And he eats meat like every half hour. Like, that was so thoughtful . . . He’s just a very nice person.” “Thor” co-star Tessa Thompson was in the interview with Natalie when she said that, and she added, quote, “I didn’t even know he could go without eating meat. He’s just like eating bison in the morning. That’s so sweet.”
David Koepp is a screenwriter who was hired to work on the script for “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”. But when he read the existing script, he noticed something he did NOT like: The aliens. He actually tried to convince Steven Spielberg and George Lucas to scrap that idea, but they wouldn’t budge. He says that of all the pushback the movie got, the most serious complaint was, quote, “We don’t feel like aliens should’ve been in an Indiana Jones movie.” And he agrees with that sentiment.
An art collective called MSCHF is selling ice cream that looks like famous billionaires, called Eat the Rich Popsicles (LINK). There’s Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and Mark Zuckerberg. They each go for $10 and of course, they have bubblegum eyes. They’re sold out of an ice cream truck with images of the popsicles on it with funny taglines like “Gobble Gates” and “Bite Bezos”. But unfortunately it was only hitting up spots in L.A. and New York the last couple days. Today is the last day to grab an ice cream. But to find out MSCHF’s next creative drop, hit up their website at MSCHF.xyz.
- Kelly still has someone who wishes to be married to him. Apparently — he is engaged to Joycelyn Savage. If that name sounds familiar, Savage is one of the women who lived with Kelly and was a part of the infamous 2019 CBS This Morning interview with Gayle King. Before Kelly was sentenced to 30 years in jail, Savage submitted a letter in court saying, “I’m Robert Kelly’s fiancé.” She continued, “He’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. We have a very special connection and are deeply in love. I still support Robert to this day because I love him and will always be here to support him. Robert is not the monster that the government has described him to be. The Robert I know is very sweet, gentle, and kind. At the end of the day, he has always made sure that I’m taken care of, and any other women he was with as well.”
Ashanti’s name was inspired by the Ashanti people of Ghana, and it means “woman of strength.” But when Ashanti was a little girl, her classmates didn’t understand the significance. They just thought it was weird. She says, quote, “I didn’t get bullied and beat up, but it was always maybe a little giggle, maybe a little, ‘Well, why is your name like that?'” So Ashanti wrote a book called “My Name Is a Story”, to help other kids with “unique” 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.’
Cardi B and Offset’s daughter Kulture turned 4 over the weekend, so they did what every parent would do: Gave her $50,000 in CASH. In a video posted to Offset’s Instagram Story, Kulture can be seen holding the entire wad. You can hear Cardi ask her what she’s got, and Kulture says it’s a “ticket”. For those of you who don’t know, a ticket is slang for a million bucks. So Offset quickly corrects her, saying, quote, “It’s a ticket? A ticket is a million, girl. That’s 50. Say 50.” And she does.
If anyone is going to light it up at the White House, Willie Nelson is the one to do it! ICYMI: A recently released documentary dove into the life and legacy of the 39th President of the United States, Jimmy Carter. The doc talks a lot about President Carter’s musical interests. It also features Willie Nelson, who Carter called “one of his best friends.” Willie says he was let on the roof by an “anonymous servant” at the White House, describing it as being up there with “a beer in one hand and a fat Austin Torpedo in the other.” Willie has told the story before…but now…Carter confirmed it in this doc. “When Willie Nelson wrote his autobiography he confessed that he smoked pot in the White House and he says that his companion was one of the servants at the White House… actually it was one of my sons.”
This is fascinating….you know that show Holey Moley with Rob Riggle as one of the hosts? Back in 2020 – the show aired this clip ((AUDIO)). Why is that weird? Well the woman who made that great shot…is now DATING Rob Riggle. We don’t know much about the pair but we do know that things are going well.
This is rad — A thousand musicians from 25 different counties played “Paradise City” by Gun N’ Roses (LINK) together, and it is epic. ((AUDIO)) Rockin’ 1000 celebrated their 8th birthday this month by covering Guns N’ Roses in Paris. The group was formed in 2014 and is described as “the biggest rock band on Earth.” The group’s website states that everyone is welcome in the band, “Amateurs, professionals, volunteers, kids men, women, no matter their provenance, ethnicity, sexual orientation or social background, what matters is to play music and love each other.”

The Cardinals won an absolute nailbiter last night against the Dodgers. The Dodgers arrived on top of a seven-game winning streak, one of the best home stands since the franchise bolted has been in LA and had gone 10-1 at Dodger Stadium to start the month of July with the winningest homestand since 1993. But they couldn’t come back against the Cardinals last night. With the help of Pujol’s homers and some unlikely heroes The Cards win 7-6

He headed down to Puerto Rico to rest and reduce the swelling in his right knee.
The Department of Justice is investigating whether the PGA Tour — who punished players for signing with wealthy Saudi golf startup, LIV Golf — engaged in anticompetitive practices, according to a Wall Street Journal report. Agents of players have been contacted by the antitrust division of the DOJ in recent months, and asked about the Tour’s rules preventing players from playing in other golf events, and the punishment of players who signed with LIV, according to the report (LINK). Of course, many top players have signed with the new, Saudi Arabia-backed organization … Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau and others have signed incredibly lucrative deals with LIV. TMZ Sports contacted the PGA Tour which acknowledged the investigation, but didn’t seem worried in the least. “This was not unexpected. We went through this in 1994 and we are confident in a similar outcome,” a spokesperson for the Tour told us.
FYI, PGA’s referring to a Federal Trade Commission investigation in the mid-90s that looked into the Tour’s rules barring players from participating in rival tournaments. The FTC dropped the investigation by 1995.

Le’Veon Bell (LINK)‘s football career is over — at least for now — the NFL star says he won’t play this season … and it’s all ’cause he wants to now focus on his boxing career.
The running back made the announcement just minutes ago at a promotional event for his upcoming fight with Adrian Peterson (LINK) — revealing he’s going to try to take this year to begin his formal transition from football player to full-time fighter.
“Last year, I almost sat out the whole year to try to focus on boxing, because I kind of knew that’s what I wanted to transition to,” “This year, I know I’m not going to be playing this year because I want to focus on boxing.”
Bell — who played eight total games last season for the Baltimore Ravens and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — has been slowly making the move into the fight world, incorporating mitts into his workouts routinely. But, at 30 years old, most thought he’d still try to extend his NFL career.
Bell, though, made it known he believes he can carve out a real niche in boxing — and he said he’s hoping a win over Peterson during their match later this month kick starts all of that. Bell is slated to enter the ring (LINK) against Peterson on July 30 at Crytpo.com Arena. After that, who knows (LINK)
Gary Moeller, who succeeded Bo Schembechler as Michigan’s coach and later led the Detroit Lions (LINK), died Monday. He was 81.
The University of Michigan (LINK) announced his death, and no cause was provided.
Marion Barber III, a former NFL star running back (LINK) for the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears, died of heat stroke in June, officials revealed Monday.
According to the full autopsy report, Barber died after he had appeared to have been exercising in “sauna-like conditions” in his apartment. In the documents, officials say Barber’s body was found in his residence where the thermostat was set at 91 degrees and the heat was set to “on.”
Investigators noted there was exercise equipment present at the scene, and said that Barber did, in fact, have a “history of exercising during sauna-like conditions.” According to the report, there was no evidence of trauma or drug overuse found inside of Barber’s body, and “no clear evidence of natural disease found” either. The ex-running back, who was picked by the Cowboys in the fourth round of the 2005 NFL Draft, had shown no signs of trouble (LINK) prior to his death, according to his attorney. Papp said Barber had started a trucking venture, and had also spent a large portion of the past few years trying to help kids in inner cities, while fighting for social justice. Barber played in the NFL for seven seasons — six with the Cowboys and one with the Bears — totaling 4,780 rushing yards and 53 rushing touchdowns over 99 total games.
