The 66th Emmy Awards are next Monday and all this week Vulture has been breaking down the major categories. Forget trying to predict who will win, and let’s focus on the question that matters: Who should to win? Here are our picks in the comedy and drama races. Below: miniseries and movies.Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie Matt Bomer, The Normal Heart Martin Freeman, Sherlock Colin Hanks, Fargo Jim Mantello, The Normal Heart Alfred Molina, The Normal Heart Jim Parsons, The Normal Heart There's a reason The Normal Heart has four contenders in the men's supporting race alone: It's an actor's showcase.

Leslie Jordan had to pull out of appearing in American Horror Story to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house on Monday night (August 18).

The actor, who starred in three episodes of American Horror Story: Coven last year as Quentin Fleming, was scheduled to feature in the show's upcoming fourth season Freak Show in a four-episode story arc.

Series creator Ryan Murphy wrote the part specifically for Jordan, who was upset at missing out on the role.

A note from Murphy read: "I am a huge fan of yours Leslie, I understand the timing was off on this one, but I will always write you into future projects."

Jordan joked: "When I read that note, I almost s**t and fell back in it."

8 annoying things about Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off' music video

18 August 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Taylor Swift's latest album is called "1989" because that's the year she was born, and also because the record was influenced by '80s pop. Deep! Also, the first single is called "Shake It Off," because that's what she does with criticism. She just...shakes it off. Easy. So today, in addition to revealing the album's title and cover art via Yahoo! livestream, Swift also debuted the Mark Romanek-directed music video for first single "Shake It Off," which is fun and cute and eye-catching and also very, very annoying. I'm sure it's going to be well-received (even the critics seems to like her), but I'm not buying it. Here are eight reasons why I find the new clip so aggravating: 1. This is basically a Gap ad. Oh, come on. You tell me the difference. 2. Taylor's "goofiness" feels like pandering. I thought Taylor was fine in the recent "Jimmy Kimmel »
