The race for the Emmys has officially begun. Voting for the TV Academy’s top honors is now open until June 26 — exclusively online for the first time ever — and ballots for all categories are available for viewing.

Lars Ulrich has made his handful of enemies over the years as Metallica‘s outspoken drummer and one of the leaders of the anti-piracy movement that eventually shut down Napster—but J.K. Simmons might be his match. In a mashup no one knew they wanted but absolutely needed, Simmons’ portrayal of the hotheaded jazz band teacher in Whiplash is fused together with footage of Ulrich. The scene from the Oscar-nominated film is a particularly tense one where Simmons not-so-patiently tries to get a drummer on his tempo.
