The 2017 Emmy nominations hinted at some spectacular actors and shows taking home important awards, and now a few of them have already won big. Alexis Bledel had an exciting win for The Handmaid's Tale, and American Horror Story: Roanoke's superb makeup effects were also acknowledged at the Creative Arts Emmys a few days before the big event. At the Emmys on Sunday night, actors like John Lithgow, Kate McKinnon, Laura Dern, and more snagged trophies for their incredible talents. In fact, the night included a number of historic wins, like Donald Glover's win for outstanding directing in a comedy series (he's the first black person to do so) and Lena Waithe's win for outstanding writing for a comedy series (she's the first black woman to take home the award).

Oh, what's that? Thought you'd be able to spoil the final Game of Thrones season for yourself? We've got bad news. HBO reportedly has a plan to counteract all the ruthless leakers, hackers, and Reddit trolls that seem intent on ruining the show. According to The Morning Call, HBO President of Programming Casey Bloys recently said the benchmark series would film more than one ending. "They're going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens," Bloys said at an event at Moravian College last week. "You have to do that on a long show. Because when you're shooting something, people know. So they're going to shoot multiple versions so that there's no real definitive answer until the end." This means that any number of endings could leak in the time before the season airs, but we'll never truly know which is the real one and which are decoys. »

American Horror Story's seventh season is off to an interesting start with Cult, which takes place in the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election. The premiere focuses on a few of America's scared citizens, proud Trump supporters, excited anarchists, and some serial killer clowns (because this is Ahs, after all). The action all centers around Sarah Paulson's Ally, a woman whose phobias are being triggered again . . . but whose irrational fears may not be so irrational after all. In her postelection life, Ally takes a seemingly innocuous trip to a local grocery store, where she is terrorized by clowns that seem like a hallucination but are probably in fact real. But before the circus arrives, she has a brief encounter with a familiar American Horror Story face: Chaz Bono.

The competition series RuPaul's Drag Race, which pits top drag queens against one another across a series of fabulous, colorful challenges, is having a moment. It drew record ratings for its season nine finale and hauled in its first-ever crop of Emmy nominations a few weeks later.
Meanwhile, on platforms like YouTube, some of the queens who have appeared on Drag Race are finding big audiences for their vlogs, music videos, and other pieces of glammed-up content. Now, three of those performers, spurned on by their digital successes, are hitting the road. Willam, Alaska Thunderfuck, and Courtney Act, each of whom count hundreds of thousands of subscribers on their respective YouTube channels, are the stars of The Aaa Girls, an upcoming tour presented by Fullscreen Live.

On the shimmering stiletto heels of RuPaul’s Drag Race scoring eight Emmy nominations comes the news that two of Drag Race’s most beloved contestants are getting their own show. Drag isn’t so niche anymore. Viceland — interestingly, not Logo — has announced plans for a “hilarious hybrid of late-night, daytime, and advice shows” hosted by Trixie Mattel and Katya Zamolodchikova, who both appeared on season seven of the show (Katya also went on to appear in All-Stars). »

Last year, RuPaul Charles scooped his first Emmy as host of RuPaul's Drag Race. While that win was the first Emmy recognition for either Charles or the show, this year, their ninth season boasts a grand total of eight nominations. Charles is again nominated for host, while the show is up for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program, and its makeup, hairstyling, costumes, picture editing and casting also merited noms. So why the sudden Emmys bonanza? Possibly, a Season 9… »
"I sometimes think, Do people find this interesting?" Todrick Hall shrugs. "Because this is my life every day and, you know, people could do this if they wanted to."
We are standing just backstage at the historic Theatre at Ace Hotel immediately following the Outfest screening of Behind the Curtain: Todrick Hall, a documentary that followed Todrick as he wrote and recorded a full-length visual album, Straight Outta Oz, then turned that album into a stage show and toured nationwide to perform it. From our vantage point behind the velvet curtain, we can watch the attendees -- hundreds of fans, friends and other industry folk -- filing out under the glimmering mirrored ceiling into the Broadway Theater District of Downtown L.A. I've asked Todrick if this all feels as glamorous to him as it seems.
"I thought at one point I would get to a certain place and I would be like, Ok, now I'm »

There's a new belle at the Emmys ball. Coming off a dark-horse win last year for outstanding host for a reality or reality competition program, RuPaul, 56, now sees his Drag Race enter this year's Emmys as a heavyweight. In its first outing since graduating from Logo to VH1, Drag Race was showered with seven nominations (plus an eighth for its aftershow, RuPaul's Drag Race: Untucked, in the unstructured reality category). They include, not surprisingly, nods for the show's eye-popping hair and makeup; a second nom for RuPaul's hosting duties; and, most significantly, a shot at the competition prize. As »

Seth Rogen. Blake Griffin. Kelly Ripa. Hillary Clinton. Over the past three seasons, Broad City has welcomed a truly impressive roster of guest stars into Abbi and Ilana's hilarious orbit, and the trailer for the highly-anticipated fourth season proves that they're not resting on their laurels just yet. The teaser promises visits from SNL legend Jane Curtin, Steve Buscemi, Wanda Sykes and Shania Twain, but perhaps the most exciting of all is the glimpse of Emmy-winning pop culture icon RuPaul. Ru's influence has been felt on the show since its debut—after all, how do you describe Ilana Wexler if not as "drag queen minus the drag"?—with RuPaul's Drag Race season four contestant Jiggly »
Andrew Garfield is setting the record straight after receiving quite a bit of backlash for his recent comments about being a "gay man" just "without the physical act." In case you missed it, the 33-year-old actor plays the lead role in Tony Kushner's play Angels in America during which the character (Prior Walter) struggles between his Jewish faith and homosexuality. He joined a discussion panel earlier this month and explained how he prepared for the role by watching episodes of RuPaul's Drag Race. "Every Sunday I would have eight friends over and we would just watch Ru," Andrew revealed. "I mean every single series of RuPaul's Drag Race. I mean every »
Andrew Garfield has nothing but respect for the Lgbtq community.
The 33-year-old actor is clarifying comments he made earlier this month during a Q&A panel for a London production of Angels in America he's starring in, which generated some backlash. Garfield opened up about how he prepared for his role as Prior Walter, a gay man, and said that he was watching plenty of RuPaul's Drag Race.
"I am a gay man right now, pretty much, just without the physical act -- that's all," he said.
The comment didn't go over too well on the internet, with some accusing Garfield of over simplifying what it means to be gay.
"That's of course not what I meant at all," Garfield tells Newsbeat in a new interview. "That discussion was about this play and how deeply grateful I am that I »
The 69th Emmy nominations have been announced! HBO need not worry that Game of Thrones wasn't eligible this year, as they landed the most nominated drama anyway with Westworld. The early-in-the-season genre hit tied Saturday Night Live for 22 nominations each, followed by Stranger Things and Feud tying for second place at 18 each.
Most of the nominations follow Emmy's expected players despite the openings left by departed perennials like Thrones, though this year isn't without surprises or fresh faces. The major breakthroughs this year were Hulu (finally in the major races thanks to the success of The Handmaid's Tale) and our beloved RuPaul's Drag Race (scoring 7 nominations, plus one for Untucked).
The team will be sharing their favorite nominations and frustrations on what missed the cut later today, but our dream ballot should give you a hint of our thoughts. Here are the nominees in the top categories: »

Andrew Garfield is facing some major backlash following comments he made on Monday, in which he said, "I am a gay man right now, pretty much, just without the physical act."
The 33-year-old actor, who is currently starring as Prior Walter in a London production of Angels in America, opened up about how he prepared for his role as a gay man during a Q&A panel and the issues he faced when taking on the role.
"One of my main concerns, which I feel every day when I do this play, is that, as far as I know, I am not a gay man," the actor said. "Maybe I’ll have an awakening later in my life, which I’m sure will be wonderful and I’ll get to explore that part of the garden, but right now I’m secluded to my area, which is wonderful as well. I adore it »
