As host of “The Apprentice,” one thing eluded Donald Trump: an Emmy. The fact that the Television Academy never awarded him one drove Trump — whom you might know is now the President of the United States of America — completely bonkers.
Trump wanted an Emmy bad enough that he went on the Hollywood campaign trail in 2008, taking trade newspaper reporters (including, um, this one) to lunch in an attempt to curry attention and grab a win for “The Apprentice.” But that was in the middle of “The Amazing Race’s” hot streak. Ultimately the closest Trump came to Emmy glory was singing the “Green Acres” theme with Megan Mullally on stage at the 2006 ceremony.
It’s a bit ironic, then, that Trump may play a hand in which shows are nominated — and ultimately win — this year’s Emmy for Outstanding Variety Talk Series.

Jim Parsons could not have been more excited to attend the Oscars on Sunday night, so excited that he almost couldn't get in. The Hidden Figures actor hilariously detailed his experience on Instagram, revealing to his followers that he made a total rookie mistake: he forgot his ID at home. If that wasn't enough, Jim also locked himself out of his home, where his ID was. "Locked out of house without ID which, apparently, you need to get into the Oscars," he captioned the photo above. After saying he wished he'd taught his dogs how to unlock the door, the star finally shared the moment of relief. With the help of some heroic friends, Jim made it to the Oscars. Let's just say Jim's Big Bang Theory character, Sheldon Cooper, would not have let this happen. »
