Awards season really takes hold in the winter, but the fall is always exciting because of the Primetime Emmy Awards! The 2015 Emmy Awards nominees have just been announced. Although Taraji P. Henson got a nod for her amazing acting as Cookie in Fox’s surprise hit TV show ‘Empire,’ neither the show nor her co-star, Terrence Howard, scored a nomination. Sci-fi fans will be thrilled to see that ‘Orphan Black’ star Tatiana Maslany DID get an Emmy nomination for her incredible work playing clones. WOOT WOOT. Check out all the nominees after the break!
The story of Rachel Dolezal has been All Over the media since late last week. She has been passing as an African American and was even elected president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP until her parents announced that she’s actually white last week. Rachel ended up resigning from the NAACP and, yesterday, gave several interviews to multiple NBC news outlets from the ‘Today’ show to MSNBC to the NBC nightly news broadcast.
We know Melissa McCarthy is going to debut her clothing collection, which will include plus sized clothes, later this summer. She showed off her fashion acumen on ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ last night with her “Jon Stewart dress.”
I have to say, Angelina Jolie is on one of the most extensive press tours I’ve ever SEEN. She’s still out promoting her film ‘Unbroken,’ which she’s been doing for at least a couple of weeks now.

Tom Cruise continues to promote his new movie, ‘Oblivion‘! It opens here in the United States this Friday. Abroad, ‘Oblivion’ is doing extremely well. This sounds like another Tom Cruise hit. I can’t WAIT to see it.
Jon Stewart had fun with Tom, of course, on ‘The Daily Show.’ Is there anyone Jon can’t interview? I don’t think so! He and Tom really seem to have a nice time talking. Check out this clip.

Golden Globe winner Jessica Chastain kept her look simple and chic for ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ yesterday. You really can’t go wrong with black and white, can you? LOVE that skinny black belt Jessica’s wearing with it! Given the political nature of ‘The Daily Show,’ you know Jessica talked about ‘Zero Dark Thirty.’
Have you seen ‘Zero Dark Thirty’? If I do Nothing Else this weekend, I’m going to see this! I love how Jessica says it’s a film that makes you think. Sometimes I want to just be entertained- no thinking required- but I’m ready to put on my thinking cap for ‘Zero Dark Thirty.’ If you’ve seen it, what did you think? Check out Jessica’s interview on ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart‘ below the thumbnails.
