-This morning’s Emmy nominations were frustrating, but not nearly as frustrating as usual. There were some great surprises (Tatiana Maslany, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Better Call Saul, Transparent, Tituss Burgess), and despite some terrible snubs (Jane the Virgin, The Americans), there were also some very welcome snubs, including no Julianna Margulies and no Big Bang Theory. (Now if we could just all collectively agree to let go of Modern Family, House of Cards and Downton Abbey…).
–Nicole Kidman‘s terrible TV movie Grace of Monaco was nominated for an Emmy, and the Internet reacted accordingly.
-Also, Tatiana Maslany and Amy Schumer‘s tweet exchange was v. cute.
–Amy‘s appearance on The Tonight Show was hilarious, whether she was talking about harassing Bradley Cooper, prank-texting Katie Couric about anal sex, and having an emotional conversation with Jimmy Fallon.
-Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge, who we all forgot were engaged, have ended said engagement.
-This interview with the cast of Bob’s Burgers was my favourite of all of the ones that came out of Comic-Con.
-I didn’t watch the ESPY Awards (’cause sports scare me), but Joel McHale’s opening monologue was gold.
–Ben Affleck wore his ring at the ESPYs. Because of his kids, of course.
-Good on Emma Stone for not shying away from talking about Aloha’s whitewashing.
-It looks like Amber Heard is taking the fall for Johnny Depp‘s doggate. She’s been charged with smuggling.
–George Clooney may be selling his Italian and Mexican getaways, but don’t feel too bad for him. He’s buying a private island near London.
-I love that Ezra Miller, who’ll play The Flash on film, is so full of praise for the TV show (“I’m not avoiding it at all. I think it’s awesome”) but man, I don’t think I’ve ever made it through a whole interview with him without wanting to punch him and/or call a crisis hotline on his behalf.
–Tom Hardy and Tom Hardy play real-life twin gangsters in this new Legend trailer.
-Speaking of trailers, I really want to like Pan because Hugh Jackman and Greg Berlanti seem like the nicest dudes in Hollywood, but I’m not sold yet.
