Sanders Campaign Responds to Killer Mike ‘Uterus’ Comment About Clinton

Sanders Campaign Responds to Killer Mike ‘Uterus’ Comment About Clinton
Bernie Sanders’ campaign is dismissing sexism charges against Killer Mike, an Atlanta-based rapper, as “gotcha” politics. It all started when Killer Mike, an outspoken Sanders supporter, spoke at a rally for the Vermont senator in Atlanta on Tuesday, where he quoted activist Jane Elliott as having told him, “Michael, a uterus doesn’t qualify you to be president of the United States,” a remark that was widely seen as sexist against Hillary Clinton, but that the rapper says was taken out of context. Sanders’ campaign did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment. But on Wednesday, a spokesman for Sanders’ campaign,

Will Amelia Heinle ('Y&R') be rare supporting actress to repeat at Daytime Emmys?

Will Amelia Heinle ('Y&R') be rare supporting actress to repeat at Daytime Emmys?
Amelia Heinle won Best Supporting Actress at the 2014 Daytime Emmys for "The Young and the Restless," a victory that came as a surprise to most of our predictors, who had favored either her co-star Elizabeth Hendrickson or Jane Elliot ("General Hospital"). Heinle is pre-nominated again this year, but can she overcome this category's curse against repeat winners? -Break- Predict Daytime Emmys: Repeat for 'Young and Restless,' redemption for 'General Hospital'? Only three women have ever won this award twice: Julia Barr ("All My Children," 1990, 1998), Gina Tognoni ("Guiding Light," 2006, 2008), and Nancy Lee Grahn ("Santa Barbara," 1989; "General Hospital," 2012). None have won it three times, and none have won consecutively. That's not to say winners in this category are doomed. A few others have won as lead actresses after prevailing once in the supporti...

How did Amelia Heinle ('Young and Restless') beat co-star Elizabeth Hendrickson at Daytime Emmys?

How did Amelia Heinle ('Young and Restless') beat co-star Elizabeth Hendrickson at Daytime Emmys?
Our predictors had pegged Best Supporting Actress at the Daytime Emmys as a two-way race between frontrunner Jane Elliot ("General Hospital") and strong challenger Elizabeth Hendrickson ("The Young and the Restless"). But despite fourth-place odds, Hendrickson's co-star Amelia Heinle overtook them both. What pushed her over the top? -Break- Were you blown away by Amelia Heinle's win? Discuss Daytime Emmy shocks in our fierce forums! Heinle and Hendrickson both submitted episodes involving the death of young Delia Abbott in a hit-and-run accident. It was a popular storyline with voters, also resulting in wins for Best Actor (Billy Miller) and Best Drama Series. Hendrickson's episode had greater impact; she played Delia's mother the moment after finding out about her death, and such intensity is often the key to winning Emmys. As we'd expect from a grieving mother, Hendrickson spends much of her reel ...'
