Why Comedic ‘SNL’ and ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ Dominate the Original Music and Lyrics Emmy Race

17 August 2017 6:34 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The mood got decidedly funnier and edgier in this year’s Emmy race for Original Music and Lyrics. It was a badly needed tonic for the country. Most notably, Tina Fey joined the musical fray for the first time, looking for her 10th Emmy with the hilarious “Hell No,” a tribute to Beyonce’s “Lemonade” (featuring an enraged Tituss Burgess) from “Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt.”

But, given the current zeitgeist, it’s not surprising that Chance the Rapper was nominated for his Run-d.M.C.–inspired rap tribute to Obama, “Last Christmas,” from “Saturday Night Live,” or that Rachel Bloom was back again with the raunchy “We Tapped That Ass” from “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” There was even room for the excruciatingly uncomfortable “The Ballad of Claus Jorstad (Devil Stool)” from “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” and and the animated burlesque of “Jing-a-Ling-a-Ling” from “Duck the Halls: A Mickey Mouse Christmas Special.”

The DJ and producer on Jay-z’s new album, the Philadelphia 76ers and the great taste of blue crab

Born in West Philadelphia, DJ Jazzy Jeff has been spinning records since he was 10. The skills he developed in his family’s basement soon became the basis for hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince. As well as winning Dmc Championship and American Music awards, he was the first hip-hop artist (together with Will Smith) to win the first best rap performance Grammy for Parents Just Don’t Understand (1988). The group’s second Grammy was earned for Summertime, peaking at No 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Since then, his work has featured in Boyz n the Hood (1991), Strange Days (1995) and Jersey Girl (2004). Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff will make their first UK live performance at Livewire festival on 27 August.

Newswire: Timothy Olyphant and Jason Sudeikis are going to chase Lee Pace in new movie

28 April 2017 11:11 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Cannes will be hit with a huge dose of handsome next month, as Deadline reports that Timothy Olyphant, Lee Pace, and Jason Sudeikis are set to star in a movie about the FBI’s real-life sting on car designer John DeLorean. Sudeikis and Olyphant will team up, Catch Me If You Can-style, with the former playing a con-artist-turned-informant who helps Olyphant’s FBI agent get his man. Pace will play the Dmc founder, who, in addition to working on cutting-edge automobile designs, tried to save his failing business by trafficking cocaine. The FBI set up a sting to catch him handling 59 pounds of coke, but the organization’s efforts were just interpreted as entrapment at DeLorean’s trial, and he was found not guilty. The film is set to begin filming in Puerto Rico this September.

The Journey director Nick Hamm will be at the wheel for Driven ...
