The Drama Over Lgbtq Actors in Emmy Drama Categories (Guest Column)

The Drama Over Lgbtq Actors in Emmy Drama Categories (Guest Column)
This year Lgbtq Pride month coincides with the nomination process for the Emmy Awards, and while there have been notable increases in Lgbtq visibility on the nominees list in recent years, Lgbtq actors are still often overlooked and underrepresented, particularly in television drama categories.

Historically, nominations for Lgbtq actors have been limited to the comedic categories, a partial reflection of a dearth of active out actors, as well as few meaningful Lgbtq storylines in dramatic series and the lingering effects of the closet. Out actors Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Tituss Burgess, Lily Tomlin, Cynthia Nixon, Kate McKinnon, Jane Lynch, and Jim Parsons

Hollywood Flashback: Why Emmy Voters Chose Cynthia Nixon for 'Law & Order' in 2008

Sex and the City made Cynthia Nixon famous and won her a 2004 supporting actress Emmy for her portrayal of workaholic lawyer Miranda Hobbes, her career didn't fare badly with Dick Wolf's Law & Order franchise. Now 52, Nixon made three appearances on NBC's long-running crime franchise.

In 1990, in the second episode of Law & Order's first season, she played the victim of a violent assault who later shoots two young African-Americans on the subway, claiming self-defense. The performance didn't win her an Emmy.

That honor came in 2008 courtesy of the ninth-season Law & Order: Special ...

Laurie Metcalf would make Tony Awards history with win for ‘Three Tall Women’

Laurie Metcalf would make Tony Awards history with win for ‘Three Tall Women’
Three-time Emmy winner Laurie Metcalf (“Roseanne”) won her first Tony Award only last year but could well add a second one to her crowded mantle this Sunday. This would be a nice makeup award for Metcalf who lost a close Supporting Actress Oscar race this year for her performance in “Lady Bird” to Allison Janney for “I, Tonya.”

Last season Metcalf took home the Best Actress in a Play Tony Award for her bravura performance in “A Doll’s House Part 2” which told the story of what happened to Ibsen’s heroine in the years after she walked out on her husband. This season Metcalf has returned to Broadway in an acclaimed revival of Edward Albee’s “Three Tall Women.” With Glenda Jackson all but certain to win her first Tony up in the lead race,

Tony Awards spotlight: Laurie Metcalf delivers virtuosic performance in ‘Three Tall Women’
Last June, Laurie Metcalf won her first Tony Award for her performance in “A Doll’s House, Part 2.” In the past twelve months, Metcalf received Oscar, SAG, and Golden Globe Award nominations for her turn in Greta Gerwig’s film “Lady Bird,” returned to her three-time Emmy-winning role on the short-lived reboot of sitcom “Roseanne,” and capped it all off with a Tony-nominated performance in the Broadway revival of Edward Albee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning “Three Tall Women.” Although her Tony win might seem fresh in voters’ minds, Metcalf’s brilliant performance in “Three Tall Women” could easily lead to a second consecutive Tony victory at this Sunday’s ceremony.

‘Sex and the City’ 20th Anniversary: Creator Reflects on Groundbreaking Series, Franchise’s Future
More than 20 years ago, Darren Star was ready to hold auditions for a new show about female friendships and sexual relationships, titled “Sex and the City.”

A Timeline of Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall's "Feud" Shows How Nasty Things Got

For years there have been rumors that Sex and the City co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall flat-out don't like each other. Of course, any time the women are asked about each other, they vehemently deny the feud, but we've gotta say: Where there's smoke, there's usually fire. And after plans for a third Sex and the City movie fell through, it became all but impossible to believe there wasn't bad blood between the two. From nasty comments to low-key shade, here's a timeline of Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall's feud. It's amazing they managed to have so much chemistry as Carrie and Samantha. February 2004 Filming for the Satc movie was supposed to start shortly after the final episode aired on HBO. However, the shooting was reportedly delayed due to salary negotiations — namely Kim's. Apparently, Kim wanted a big pay increase after Sjp got an executive producer credit

The Nation Endorses Cynthia Nixon for Governor of New York
The Nation endorsed New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon on Wednesday in her primary challenge to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

In explaining their decision, the editors of the iconic liberal publication said they were pleased to see Nixon pushing Cuomo to the left on various issues and said that her life experience more than made up for her lack of political expertise.

“Nixon has the life experience to be a governor of and for the people. If elected, she won’t be beholden to the entrenched interests and political machines that dominate state government,” The Nation wrote.

In her new book, titled “Sex and the City and Us,” author Jennifer Keishin Armstrong details her own story of how she was influenced by the show that would become a Bible on how to live in New York City in your 30s, in the form of a little newspaper column by Carrie Bradshaw.

We read Armstrong’s book. Here are 12 things we learned about the show that would help define a generation.

Candace Bushnell, the writer of the real-life “Sex and the City” column for the New York Observer, created the pseudonym Carrie Bradshaw so that her parents could at least pretend they weren’t reading about their daughter’s sex life.
