Published

on

The 69th Emmy Awards were well underway at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday evening where 27 awards recognizing excellence in primetime programming and individual achievement were presented by the likes of Anthony Anderson, Alec Baldwin, Carol Burnett, James Corden, Viola Davis, Edie Falco, Anna Faris, Jane Fonda, Allison Janney, Nicole Kidman, Melissa McCarthy, Seth Meyers, Jim Parsons, Lily Tomlin, and Reese Witherspoon.

Veep, The Handmaid’s Tale, and Big Little Lies were some of the night’s biggest winners during the ceremony, which was hosted by late-night host Stephen Colbert and featured plenty of Donald Trump jokes and a surprise appearance from former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer; a gag that promptly received plenty of backlash on social media.

Michael Wolff’s sensational new book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House is coming to a television screen near you as Endeavor Content has purchased film and television rights to the controversial tell-all, which has been a No. 1 best-seller since it was released on January 5.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a network is not yet attached to the project, though Endeavor, who reportedly scooped up the rights to the book for somewhere in the seven-figure range, is currently searching for a home for the adaptation. Wolff will serve as an executive producer along with BBC executive Michael Jackson.

There’s a lot to unpack in this story, but, honestly, I’m just curious to know who’s going to be cast as who in this series and what the Trump administration’s reaction to all of this news is going to be. I mean, we saw them lose their shit over the book itself—imagine how they’re going to react to a fucking TV series.

How do you feel about Fire and Fury making the jump to the small screen? Any idea as to who should be cast in the series? Let us know your thoughts by sounding off in the comments section below. Also, please feel free to enjoy this live look at the Trump White House.

Master of None star Aziz Ansari has responded to the claims of sexual misconduct made against him by a 23-year-old Brooklyn-based photographer that took place last September at the actor’s New York City apartment.

According to a report published by Babe, the woman, given the pseudonym “Grace,” alleged that, despite giving Ansari several verbal and non-verbal cues that she wasn’t interested in sex, the actor repeatedly kissed her, performed oral sex on her, pushed her hand towards his penis, and placed his fingers in her mouth.

However, in a statement issued Sunday night, Ansari denied any wrongdoing and said that the encounter “was completely consensual.” You can read the full statement below.

“In September of last year, I met a woman at a party. We exchanged numbers. We texted back and forth and eventually went on a date. We went out to dinner, and afterwards we ended up engaging in sexual activity, which by all indications was completely consensual.

The next day, I got a text from her saying that although ‘it may have seemed okay,’ upon further reflection, she felt uncomfortable. It was true that everything did seem okay to me, so when I heard that it was not the case for her, I was surprised and concerned. I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said. 

I continue to support the movement that is happening in our culture. It is necessary and long overdue.”

Published

After ending season four on somewhat of a cliffhanger, HBO announced this morning that the Emmy-winning comedy series Silicon Valley will return to the network for its long-awaited fifth season on Sunday, March 25. You can check out a newly released teaser trailer for the new season in the embedded player above.

“It’s pretty different. If you think about T.J. [Miller]’s character represented in the show narratively, you can sort of guess the immediate ramifications of a character that big disappearing are quite big – so the show is really very different,” star Kumail Nanjiani told Metro about the forthcoming season, which was executive produced by series creators Mike Judge and Alec Berg.

The fifth season will, of course, also see the return of Thomas Middleditch, Zach Woods, Martin Starr, Josh Brener, Amanda Crew, Matt Ross, Suzanne Cryer, and Jimmy O. Yang as Jian Yang, who decides to claim ownership of Ehrlich’s incubator and evict the entire Pied Piper crew, as seen in the teaser trailer. Things can definitely only get worse from there.

Silicon Valley airs 10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT on HBO beginning March 25.
