Peabody Awards: Issa Rae, John Oliver, Carol Burnett, Hasan Minhaj Celebrate the Power of Television

Peabody Awards: Issa Rae, John Oliver, Carol Burnett, Hasan Minhaj Celebrate the Power of Television
Comedian Hasan Minhaj set a serious-but-irreverent tone right from the start at Saturday’s 77th annual Peabody Awards in New York, where kudos were presented to a range of news, documentary, public service and entertainment programs.

Host Minhaj opened the evening by noting the odd contrast of handing out awards for excellence in TV and digital media at a venue in the heart of the financial district, Cipriani Wall Street.

“This is the wokest award show in the least woke location,” Minhaj joked. “Are the Pulitzers being handed out at Mar-a-Lago?” Later in the ceremony, Minhaj had a zinger for Vice President Mike Pence. He noted that most people were unsettled by the themes in one of 2017’s honorees, Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “unless of course you’re the Vice President, and then this show is the breakout comedy of the year.”

Sweetbitter Sneak Peek: Who Is Serena, and Why Does Simone Hate Her?

Sweetbitter‘s buttoned-up Simone gets downright angry — that is to say, her nostrils flare slightly — in this exclusive sneak peek from Sunday’s episode (Starz, 8/7c). And all because a mysterious woman named Simone calls the restaurant, seeking a last-minute reservation.

When Becky asks for some assistance finding room in the busy dining room for the mystery caller and her guest, Simone takes the quickest of glances at the reservation book before deciding that the eatery is fully, hopelessly committed for the evening. Even Becky’s reminder that Serena is “an alumna” does nothing to sway the ice-cold blonde’s decision.

SNL Finale Highlights: Tina Fey Spoofs Mean Girls Musical, Royal Wedding

SNL Finale Highlights: Tina Fey Spoofs Mean Girls Musical, Royal Wedding
Despite a valiant effort from returning host Tina Fey, Saturday Night Live‘s 43rd season went out with (mostly) a whimper.

Following a lackluster (and dated!) Sopranos-themed cold open, SNL rebounded with Fey’s star-studded monologue, which featured cameos by Jerry Seinfeld, Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, Donald Glover, Chris Rock, Benedict Cumberbatch, Fred Armisen and Tracy Morgan. The sharp, resonant bit poked fun at the show’s preference for using big-name guest stars instead of its own cast members.

Weirdly, the underwhelming episode picked up steam in the last half-hour…

What has Theo Rossi Been up to Since Sons of Anarchy?

It’s highly possible that no other actor could have taken on the portrayal of Juan Carlos “Juice” Ortiz as Theo Rossi did. For seven seasons of Sons of Anarchy, he played the role believing that Juice was a good guy–contrary to the opinion of many who viewed Juice as a one-time good guy who becomes a consummate villain. Rossi confided this to Sydney Bucksbaum in a 2016 interview for The Hollywood Reporter. Rossi had recently discovered that Juice was the character who single-handedly killed the most individuals during the run of Sons of Anarchy. The bit of trivia literally shocked
