Megan Mullally poised to become second most nominated Best Comedy Supporting Actress in Emmy history

Megan Mullally poised to become second most nominated Best Comedy Supporting Actress in Emmy history
Megan Mullally was Emmy-nominated for seven of “Will & Grace”’s original eight seasons. Thanks to the revival, the two-time winner can add an eighth Best Comedy Supporting Actress nomination this year, which would give her the second most bids in the category.

If she makes the cut, Mullally would only be behind 10-time nominees Rhea Perlman and Loretta Swit, the latter of whom scored her nominations consecutively. Perlman won four times, including three in a row, for “Cheers,” while Swit converted two of her nominations into wins for “M*A*S*H.” With “Will & Grace” renewed for two more seasons, Mullally will have a chance to tie that record.

Mullally is currently tied with fellow seven-time nominees Julia Duffy, Estelle Getty, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Doris Roberts. All except “Newhart” star Duffy won at least

Could Laurie Metcalf could parlay her Oscar loss into an Emmy win for the ‘Roseanne’ revival?

Could Laurie Metcalf could parlay her Oscar loss into an Emmy win for the ‘Roseanne’ revival?
Laurie Metcalf (“Lady Bird”) lost the Best Supporting Actress Oscar to Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”), but could both walk away winners at the Emmys. Janney will be contending in Best Comedy Actress for “Mom,” while that loss could fuel Metcalf to an Emmy win for the “Roseanne” revival.

Metcalf enjoyed some of the best reviews of her career for her affecting, complex turn in “Lady Bird” and thoroughly dominated the critics awards the first half of the season. It was so beloved that many were still hoping for and predicting an Oscar upset until the very end despite Janney’s steamrolling precursor run. If any Emmy voter still feels like she was robbed, this could sort of double as a consolation prize.

Riverdale’s Parents Are The Worst

It’s a Sunday night: you’ve just finished your job delivering leaflets for a local takeaway, you have algebra homework to do, you haven’t cleaned your room and your mum’s on the warpath. You’re sat in bed with ice cream watching serial killer documentaries and listening to The Smiths. Everything’s fine.

We’ve all been teenagers, and it isn’t easy. Puberty’s happening. You’re trying to do homework instead of going out with your friends every night. All your friends are making out with friends of friends. You have to think of clever tweets and take aesthetic selfies for Instagram. Your phone cannot be out of your line of sight for a second. It’s the apocalypse.

And your parents don’t understand, they’re just in your face all the time, trying to make you do chores or last week’s essay.

After Oscar bid, will Laurie Metcalf win a fourth Emmy for ‘Roseanne’?

After Oscar bid, will Laurie Metcalf win a fourth Emmy for ‘Roseanne’?
Laurie Metcalf may not take home the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for “Lady Bird,” but she could still grab some hardware later this year. With the “Roseanne” revival set to premiere next month, she’ll be in the running to pick up her fourth Emmy as Jackie Harris.

Metcalf was an Emmy favorite during the ABC comedy’s original run, three-peating in Best Comedy Supporting Actress from 1992 through ’94. A fourth victory for Metcalf would tie the category record with Rhea Perlman (“Cheers”) and Doris Roberts (“Everybody Loves Raymond”). Coincidentally, Perlman and Roberts each won three consecutive trophies before garnering a fourth later on.

11 Things You Probably Never Knew About Disney Classic Lizzie McGuire

I have an incredible statement to make: it's been 16 years since Lizzie McGuire started airing on the Disney Channel. Feel old yet? The show's star, Hilary Duff, is turning 30 this year. Now do you feel old? Whether you do or don't, I'm still willing to bet that if you're a millennial, you watched a whole lot of classic Disney Channel back in the day. (Or maybe you watched Nickelodeon, in which case I have nothing to discuss with you.) I loved watching Lizzie McGuire because Lizzie was just sooo relatable. Remember that episode when she just wants to get a bra, but she had to awkwardly talk about it in front of her dad and brother? Been there, done that. I have a special place in my heart for the show and the character because I felt like I was going through life right along with Lizzie. So from one fan to another, I wanted to share these 11 fun facts about the show that you might not have known before. RelatedVery Important Question: Were You a Nickelodeon Kid or a Disney Channel Kid? Heartthrob Ethan Craft was almost portrayed as a bully. Lucky for us, the showrunners switched gears and had him be a lovable character instead. Speaking of Ethan, Clayton Snyder, who played Ethan, said as his hair got progressively longer throughout the show, he ended up taking more time in hair and makeup than the girls did. A lot of otherwise-famous people had cameos on Lizzie McGuire, including Zachary Quinto, Frankie Muniz, Steven Tyler, and Doris Roberts. Hilary Duff almost didn't get the role of Lizzie. In fact, actress Sara Paxton was considered for the role, as was Lindsay Lohan. Even though we feel like there have been years and years of episodes of Lizzie, there are actually only 65 of them. Only 65! Lizzie's bitmoji character almost didn't happen. Originally the show was just going to have Hilary doing voiceover, but the cartoon character ended up being added in with it. When Hilary got the call from Disney that they wanted her to come in to read for the role of Lizzie, she didn't want to go. She said in an interview in 2006 that she wanted her big break and didn't want to work for Disney. Hilary said she didn't do well on her first audition because she admittedly didn't know any of her lines. She only went out for the role so she could see her friends. Disney Channel execs weren't impressed with Hilary's acting in the beginning, so they demanded the showrunners hire an acting coach to work with the cast. There was almost a spinoff about Lizzie's best friend Miranda and her little sister, Stevie, called What's Stevie Thinking?, but it never happened. Selena Gomez was actually supposed to play Stevie! The show's creator, Terri Minsky, wants to bring everyone back together for a remake, but unfortunately Hilary's not interested.

“Alexis was a great actor and had 70 credits and was really brave to live her truth as a trans woman, and they didn’t include her in the memorial,” Patricia Arquette told Et. “I think that was a real slight to the trans community, especially at this time when trans kids can’t even go to the bathroom in the United States of America at school. It says a lot about the lack of inclusion.”

During the In Memoriam portion of the show, a photo was shown of Australian producer Jan Chapman with the name Janet Patterson written with it.

Patterson, a costume designer, did pass away in October 2016, but it was Chapman’s face that erroneously appeared with Patterson’s name.

"I was devastated by the use of my image in place of my great friend and longtime collaborator Janet Patterson," Chapman told Variety via email after the Academy Awards.

"I had urged her agency to check any photograph which might be used and understand that they were told that the Academy had it covered. Janet was a great beauty and four-time Oscar nominee and it is very disappointing that the error was not picked up. I am alive and well and an active

Chelsea Clinton Says Barron Trump Deserves the Chance to Be a Kid
Chelsea Clinton knows firsthand that growing up in the political spotlight can be tough, and now she’s standing up for President Donald Trump‘s 10-year-old son Barron.

Apparently in response to jokes people were making online about Barron after the inauguration Friday, the 36-year-old daughter of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton tweeted a powerful message on Sunday.

“Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does-to be a kid,” she wrote.

However, Clinton also implied that some of the 70-year-old president’s policies may harm children.

She said, “Standing up for every kid also means opposing @Potus policies that hurt kids.

In Memoriam: Television Stars We Lost in 2016

In Memoriam: Television Stars We Lost in 2016
2016 saw the passing of many notable television actors, including a TV mom and dad that many grew up watching.

Florence Henderson, aka Carol Brady on “The Brady Bunch,” was the mother to the show’s six kids and by extension to multiple generations of TV viewers. The actress, who was also a talented stage performer and singer, died on November 24 at age 82. Earlier that week, she was seen cheering on her TV daughter Maureen McCormick – aka Marcia — on “Dancing With the Stars.” Active well into her golden years, Henderson even participated on the show in 2010. At the time of her death, she was developing another “Brady”-themed project for CBS. (Read her obituary here).

In December, Alan Thicke, the patriarch on “Growing Pains,” died at age 69. He died on December 13 after suffering a heart attack while playing hockey with his youngest son, Carter. A charismatic actor with a distinctive voice, Thicke

Taking Its Toll: 2016 Was a Brutal Year for Celebrity Deaths

  • Yidio
2016-12-28T14:57:00-08:00Taking Its Toll: 2016 Was a Brutal Year for Celebrity Deaths

As 2016 draws to a close, plenty of TV and movie fans are glad to see it go, given how many big-name celebrities have passed away since last January. There is, however, a chorus of naysayers who point out that lots of celebrities die every year, and 2016 was no different. Is it true, then, that the last calendar year took more stars than usual away from us?

In short, yes, it's true. Yes, every year dozens of people you might have heard of pass away, but 2016 was atypical in the number of deaths of celebrities who created iconic roles or had otherwise been at the top of their fields.

The year was particularly hard on legends of the music world, and more than one of those musical stars had a big impact on the film world,
