black-ish is adding Hamilton‘s Thomas Jefferson to its family tree.

Diggs’ Johan is described as a pretentious hipster type who constantly upsets Anthony Anderson’s Dre. He’s also seen as a bad influence on Dre and Bow’s kids, who — with the exception of Diane — all think he’s incredibly cool.
Diggs recently made headlines when he was announced as part of the all-star »
When the third season of “Black-ish” arrives, the Johnson family will expand.
Fresh from the Broadway smash “Hamilton,” Daveed Diggs will have a season 3 arc as Rainbow Johnson’s brother, Johan, Variety can exclusively reveal.
Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) and Johan, whose mother is a very laid-back, hippie-ish soul, had very different childhoods than Dre, and that’s partly why Johan will be a frequent thorn in Dre’s side. Dre Johnson (Anthony Anderson) has always feared that his kids will grow up to be overly pampered, and it sounds like Johan is the personification of those fears.
“He’s sort of a hipster, entitled kid who gets on Dre’s nerves,” creator and showrunner Kenya Barris said. “He’s constantly on a search for the best conditioner for his hair. He’s probably gone to Penn or Wharton and could have gotten a great-paying job, but he’s trying to find himself. That »

“Black-ish” star Anthony Anderson was a teenager in Compton, Calif. during a historically violent and frightening time for the city made famous by N.W.A. The racial tension between police and African-American citizens contributed to the Rodney King beating, the Los Angeles riots, and even the O.J. Simpson verdict. This past season, Anderson’s character, Dre, ended an episode about police brutality with a dramatic monologue that he drew on his own experiences to deliver. We asked Anderson, 45, what it was like to grow up when he did, where he did. Here’s his response: Growing up in Compton in the mid- to. »

Stars Hollow may be the end of the line for Lauren Graham. The Gilmore Girls actress opened up to People on Thursday after announcing the 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards nominations alongside black-ish nominee Anthony Anderson about the feelings she had returning to the beloved series after nearly 10 years. "I relished it, and I'm ruined for life because there's no more perfect fit I feel like for me than that writing and that show," she said. "I'm so glad I got to do it again. I just can't even explain it. It was everything I wanted it to be and more. »

The Television Academy has not only transformed their North Hollywood-based campus with a brand new theater complex, they are transforming the awards themselves as evidenced by this morning’s gargantuan announcement of nominees in a whopping – and record – 113 categories. Can you say “proliferation”? But this morning when I spoke to TV Academy Chairman Bruce Rosenblum shortly after he joined Anthony Anderson and Lauren Graham in announcing just a handful of these freshly… »
When Tracee Ellis Ross found out she was nominated for her very first Emmy award, the black-ish actress made sure her first phone call was to mom Diana Ross. "I got up and I ran and danced weirdly around my dining room," Ross tells People. "Then I opened my front door and I don't know where I thought I was trying to go, so I closed the door and I called my mom. She was really cute and we screamed for a little bit."In addition to her first Emmy nod, Ross, 43, has plenty to celebrate since her costar Anthony Anderson »

Netflix’s “Master of None” got a lot of critical praise last year, but Alan Yang, who created the show with Aziz Ansari, almost didn’t watch the livestream of Thursday’s Emmy nomination announcements. He was afraid the show might not get any recognition, and of course, he was very glad to be wrong. “Master of None” was nominated in the best comedy category, as well as for the writing and directing of the “Parents” episode, and for Ansari’s performance.
Yang talked about his reaction to the nominations, and about how he and Ansari feel lucky to be working in the industry right now.
What were you doing when you heard the news?
We’re on the East Coast, so it was around 11:40 a.m., people were getting ready to eat lunch. Aziz was like, “Should we watch the Emmy nominations?” I was like, “No! I don’t want to do that!” And »

The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences rolled out their picks for this year's Emmy nominations this morning, provoking the usual hubbub over surprise inclusions and snub-outrage. As TV devotees pored over the list and flipped out over the conspicuous absence of their favorites, we look at the big picture and identify a few valuable lessons to be learned from this year's nominees.
1. Diversity is the order of the day
"This is the most diverse group of nominees in Emmy history," host Andy Samberg crowed during last year's telecast. "Racism is over! »
The Emmy nods have hit the Internet, and there are a few surprises among these stellar examples of Primetime TV. Game of Thrones leads the pack with a whopping 23 nominations, which probably will not surprise anyone who has tuned in to the show this season. It’s certainly one of the better programs on TV right now, and this season has been particularly stellar.
More surprising – and, in some ways, more deserved – are several nods to Mr. Robot, including an Outstanding Drama and Lead Actor In A Drama for Rami Malek. Christian Slater gets nothing, despite his Golden Globe win, but I guess we can’t have everything. While Malek has some serious competition in his category, including Hollywood heavyweights Liev Schrieber and Kevin Spacey, here’s hoping that he takes home the prize. He certainly deserves it.
While Game of Thrones dominates in many categories, there’s quite a »

HBO sits upon the Television Academy’s Iron Throne once again, walking away July 14 with 94 Emmy nominations total, the highest of any network. Its Emmy-winning “Game of Thrones” scored the most nominations of any television series with 23, including acting nods for Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, and Maisie Williams in supporting categories. Yes, that largely reads the same as last year, but that doesn’t mean the 68th annual Emmy Award nominations were void of surprises on Thursday when Anthony Anderson (a nominee this year and last for “Black-ish”) and “Gilmore Girls” star Lauren Graham announced the main categories live at 8:30 a.m. Pt. Read: “ ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’ Proves Truth Is Weirder Than Fiction” Ryan Murphy’s FX newcomer “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” was another major contender with 22 nominations, among them Best Limited Series and acting nods for Cuba Gooding Jr., »
Anthony Anderson and Lauren Graham announced the 2016 Emmy nominees on Thursday, and Anderson could not contain his joy when his face popped up on the big screen. This is his second year being nominated for Black-ish, and he was so proud he even gave a shout-out to his mom. He continued to absolutely not hold it together when his costar, Tracee Ellis Ross, also scored a nomination. The fun didn't stop there! He lost it again when Black-ish was nominated for outstanding comedy series. Basically, Anthony Anderson is having a hell of a day. Here's a greatest hits compilation - just make sure you have the sound turned up. »

The nominations for the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards (otherwise known as the 2016 Emmys) were announced Thursday morning by Anthony Anderson (black-ish) and Lauren Graham (Netflix’s upcoming Gilmore Girls revival). Out of all the shows nominated for Emmys, Game of Thrones led the pack with 23 nominations, but The People v. O.J. Simpson was right behind with 22 nods, followed by Fargo with 18. Additionally, some new blood finally entered the Emmy race, as The Americans received its first nomination for Outstanding Drama, with series stars Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell also being recognized for their work in the lead acting categories. Furthermore, black-ish nabbed a nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series, Ellie Kemper

The Leftovers, which I think is the best show on television, got zero Emmy nominations today. Alan Alda didn't get nominated for the performance of an immortal career, and nearly everyone else he worked with on the amazing Horace and Pete were also ignored by the TV Academy. HBO's amazing miniseries Show Me a Hero also got shut out, with even Oscar Isaac being ignored in favor of the less impressive likes of Cuba Gooding Jr. (who was one of the ships lifted by the rising tide that was The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, the year's second-most-nominated show after Game of Thrones). This all disappoints me, as does the TV Academy's continued clinging to certain security blankets like Modern Family, Downton Abbey, House of Cards, and Homeland. And yet every time I'm on the verge of being annoyed by those choices or many others (say, John Travolta »

The Television Academy has spoken! Here are your 2016 Emmy Nominations...
The time to fill out your Emmy Madness Bracket is now. Wait, wrong event. But that would be fun, wouldn’t it? Kirsten Dunst slugging it out versus her network foe Sarah Paulson for Emmy gold. How about perennial favorite Game Of Thrones pitted against underdog newcomer Mr. Robot in the championship round? In the “peak TV” era, maybe a bracket formatted competition is the only true way to determine the best in the world of television.
Anyway, we’ll have to settle for fan polls and speculation as we countdown to the 68th Annual Emmy Award on Sunday, Sept. 18th on ABC. Until then, here is the list of nominees for the major categories. You can find the full list here.

Last year, we didn’t get to see Anthony Anderson‘s reaction to getting an Emmy nomination for the first season of ABC’s “Black-ish” — because he was in London’s Heathrow Airport at the time. But since he presented the Emmy nominations with “Gilmore Girls” star Lauren Graham live Thursday morning, we were treated to his perfect response to his second nomination. Anderson exploded with joy when he was named for the second straight year as a nominee for lead actor in a comedy. He blew up again when his co-star Tracee Ellis Ross, was nominated, and again the show scored a nomination. »
