Emmys 2019: Rachel Bloom announces pregnancy after Emmy win

Emmys 2019: Rachel Bloom announces pregnancy after Emmy win  Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star Rachel Bloom made a special announcement after winning her Emmy for best original music and lyrics — she is pregnant. Bloom announced the news backstage on Saturday at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. 

Expect Bodyguard, Fleabag, The Good Place, Pose and Russian Doll all to make a big splash in the major categories. This is what to watch for when the nominees are Game of Thrones will definitely be a major player at the 2019 Emmys , but just how big of a contender will the HBO series be?

‘Game of Thrones’? ‘Veep’? Yes. But what other series will make news on Tuesday?

The 71st primetime Emmy Awards are on Sunday (Sept. 22) at 8pm eastern on Fox in the United States. (Here’s where it will air in other countries.) This may be the last time that the annual TV showcase is so thoroughly dominated by one series.

That’s because Game of Thrones, which earned a record 32 nominations this year, is finally over. HBO hopes the fantasy drama can win some big awards—namely its fourth best drama series trophy—to wash away the bad aftertaste from the show’s divisive finale. Just as likely, Thrones winning best drama again could make viewers even angrier.

Emmys 2019: Everything you need to know

Emmys 2019: Everything you need to know The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards are right around the corner! 

We are only days away from the 2019 Emmys ! It is expected to be a big night for “Game of Thrones,” which has 32 nominations. The show already won 10 awards at the Creative Arts Emmys . If Julia Louis-Dreyfus wins Best Actress in a Comedy Series, she’ll be the most decorated actor in Emmy

Game of Thrones and Veep are poised to win big at the 2019 Emmys . But as with any awards show, it's always wise to expect the unexpected. But the critically-acclaimed Fleabag could potentially take it down after winning a Creative Arts Emmys bellwether, while The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which won

Emmy voters like to honor shows in their final years of eligibility, so don’t be surprised if Game of Thrones is the night’s big winner even if it doesn’t win the ultimate prize. Other series with several nominations include the Netflix miniseries When They See Us, HBO comedy Barry, FX miniseries Fosse/Verdon, and Amazon comedy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

Like the Oscars in February, Sunday’s Emmys won’t officially have a host. Instead, it’ll show off a revolving door of presenters and performers to help keep the telecast moving. The Emmys last went host-less in 2003.

Here’s what else to watch for during the big night:

Can Game of Thrones be conquered?

Thrones has been nominated for the best drama Emmy every year of its existence, winning it in 2015, 2016, and 2018. Awards handicappers are unanimously predicting a fourth victory in the category this year, for the show’s final season—critical reception be damned. As the most popular show in the world in its last hurrah, Game of Thrones is in a great position to win the night’s biggest award, even though it doesn’t deserve it.

pridenation July 15, 2019 No Comments 0 likes. On Tuesday, July 16, starting at 8:30 am PT, the Television Academy will announce the nominees for the 71st Primetime Emmy No matter what, the top series prizes will look notably different this year, with new series expected to fill the open slots.

If Thrones doesn’t deserve it, then what does? For starters, HBO has another show in the running, one that’s caught fire with critics in its second season (currently airing): Succession, the comedic drama about a dysfunctional American media dynasty. Succession is probably the best drama on TV right now, but it’s not exactly a hit with audiences. (It averages about 500,000 US viewers per episode, which is about 5% of a Game of Thrones episode.) Succession has won over critics, but Emmy voters like to vote for the buzzy show, and it may not have quite enough in the buzz department. Maybe next year.

Some dark horses in the drama category include BBC America’s Killing Eve and FX’s Pose. They’re unlikely to win, but if it shockingly doesn’t go to Game of Thrones or Succession, we think it’ll be one of those two.

HBO vs. Netflix vs. everyone else

Last year, Netflix briefly stole HBO’s long-running spot as the most-nominated network. But HBO won the title back this year with a whopping 137 total nominations (20 more than Netflix)—mostly thanks to Game of Thrones, which wasn’t eligible in 2018. NBC placed a distant third in the nominations rankings this year with 58.

Ben Stiller and wife Christine Taylor walked the red carpet together at the 2019 Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 22, despite splitting two years ago after 17 years of marriage. Stiller, 53, and Taylor, 48, walked the purple carpet at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, looking happy and posing for photos. Inside the show, eyewitnesses told Us Weekly that the duo were smiling, looking happy and chatting with other couples.

We all know "Game of Thrones" will walk away victorious at the 2019 Emmys , but who else will win on TV's biggest night? And who really deserves to? Because "Thrones," HBO's juggernaut, is expected to dominate in many of its categories, this year's awards include an odd grouping of nominees in

After last weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys (the section of the Emmys that honors behind-the-scenes categories like editing, costumes, production design, etc.), HBO narrowly leads Netflix in wins, 25 to 23—again, thanks to Thrones, which won 10 on its own.

Netflix’s best chance of surpassing HBO’s number of total wins will be if its miniseries When They See Us cleans up in the 11 categories it’s nominated for. The streaming service could also use strong showings from the comedy Russian Doll and drama Ozark, though, to be honest, does anyone remember what happened on the last season of Ozark? When did that even air?

The comedy category is stacked

You can’t really go wrong with any of the shows nominated in the best comedy category, comprised of HBO’s Barry; Amazon’s Fleabag; NBC’s The Good Place; Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel; Netflix’s Russian Doll; Pop TV’s Schitt’s Creek; and finally HBO’s Veep for its seventh and final season.

Prognosticators appear to think Veep is the tentative favorite, though this category is much less predictable than drama. Fleabag, Barry, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (last year’s winner) are all legitimate possibilities.

Emmys 2019: Anthony Anderson and Bryan Cranston Hilariously 'Save' the Hostless Ceremony

  Emmys 2019: Anthony Anderson and Bryan Cranston Hilariously 'Save' the Hostless Ceremony See how the awards show got things started!At first, Homer Simpson strolled out onto an animated version of the awards show stage. However, before he could start delivering one-liners, a piano dropped from the ceiling -- upending his performance! That's when Black-ish nominee Anthony Anderson jumped into action to "save" the hostless awards show. He ran to the stage and began to try and find the perfect individual to take over the opening monologue duties.

With 'Game of Thrones,' 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,' 'Russian Doll' and more vying for TV supremacy, we predict who will take home an Emmy . Here's Who Will Win—And Who Should— at the 2019 Emmys .

How to watch the 2019 Emmys : 'Game of Thrones,' Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 'Fleabag' and more compete. Once the show begins, viewers can expect to see many of the night’s nominees presenting the 27 awards given out on-air.

But just like its dragon-centric drama counterpart at HBO, Veep has the narrative going for it. It has won the award three times already (2015-2017), and Emmy voters might relish the opportunity to give it one more trophy on its way out the door. While it might not have been the best comedy on TV this year, it would be hard to argue with the TV Academy if they vote to honor one of the greatest political satires of our time.

The miniseries are great too!

The drama and comedy categories get most of the attention, but limited series is quietly one of the strongest groups every year, and 2019 is no different. In addition to the aforementioned When They See Us, the category includes HBO’s Chernobyl—one of the most critically acclaimed series of all time—and Showtime’s criminally under-appreciated Escape at Dannemora.

And that’s to say nothing of HBO’s Sharp Objects, though that aired so long ago (August 2018) that it seems strange to be going up against series that aired just a few months ago. Alas, that’s how Emmy eligibility works. (The window is from June 1, 2018 to May 31 of this year.)

Julia Louis-Dreyfus record watch

The Veep star already owns the record for the most Emmy wins for the same role for her turn as US vice president Selina Meyer on the HBO comedy. But with one more win, she will become the winningest performer in Emmy history. She’s currently tied with Cloris Leachman with eight total acting wins. (Louis-Dreyfus has won once for Seinfeld, once for The New Adventures of Old Christine, and six times for Veep.)

Emmys 2019: Alex Borstein pays tribute to grandmother who survived the holocaust

  Emmys 2019: Alex Borstein pays tribute to grandmother who survived the holocaust After winning the supporting comedy actress Emmy for the second year in a row, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Alex Borstein paid tribute to her grandmother, who was a Holocaust survivor, with a powerful speech. She started by thanking a number of women, including Maisel creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and the cast and crew of the Amazon Prime series, and then moved on to address her mother and grandmother.

We're barely a week away from the start of E3 2019 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in California! Now for everybody else: we're expecting updates on the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 from Witcher-developer CD Projekt Red -- might even get a release date from them this year.

Well, it's 2019 , and Computex is a show in ASUS' back yard -- all the more reason for it to wow the world's press on the ground. We're hoping to get And the advent of these chips will see the arrival of a whole raft of new motherboards, and we're expecting to see these all over Computex this year.

Frankly, it’d be a surprise if Emmy voters don’t ensure the legendary actor breaks the record Sunday night. If anyone spoils her coronation, it’ll probably be either Rachel Brosnahan (last year’s winner for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel; Veep and Louis-Dreyfus weren’t eligible) or Fleabag creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

O host, where art thou?

After all that brouhaha over the Oscars electing to air without a host, it doesn’t seem like anyone particularly cares that the Emmys will do the same this year. Perhaps that’s because the Oscars showed that not having a host might not be such a bad thing. Or perhaps it’s because not as many people care about the Emmys as they do the Oscars. Perhaps it’s a mix of both.

In any event, Fox and the TV Academy decided to follow the Oscars’ lead and try to produce a seamless, entertaining show without a single host to guide the evening’s events. It could get messy, but it could also give some of the presenters more moments to shine on stage. This year, they include Lin-Manuel Miranda, Zendaya, Amy Poehler, and many, many more.

Game Of Thrones' George R R Martin Reveals Why Working On The Show Could Be 'Traumatic' For Him .
However, with Game Of Thrones having now reached its controversial end, George has revealed that making decisions based on what should happen next on the show wasn’t always an easy process. “It can be traumatic,” he told Fast Company. “Because sometimes their creative vision and your creative vision don’t match, and you get the famous creative differences thing — that leads to a lot of conflict.”He also said that the show’s divisive final series was “not completely faithful” to what he had mapped out, joking: “Otherwise, it would have to run another five seasons.
