‘Homecoming’: Could It Be a Beyoncé vs. Taylor Swift Rematch at the Emmys?

‘Homecoming’: Could It Be a Beyoncé vs. Taylor Swift Rematch at the Emmys?
Beyoncé Knowles-Carter blessed the internet and the world on April 17, releasing a new Netflix film documenting her two 2018 Coachella performances, plus additional footage offering a glimpse into the iconic musician’s collaborative creative process. And indeed, it was very good.

The concerts – designed to celebrate the lasting legacy of Historically Black Colleges and Universities – were already guaranteed crowdpleasers, garnering more than 43 million views on YouTube in the last year, but what remains to be seen is whether or not the TV Academy will be similarly smitten with Beyoncé’s latest foray into the television sphere.

It’s not that the former Destiny’s Child star is unfamiliar with the Emmys. Beyoncé has four previous Emmy nominations, including nods for her 2013 Super Bowl Halftime Show, 2015 HBO “On The Run Tour” concert film with husband Jay-z, as well as nominations for Variety Special and Direction of a Variety Special for 2016’s HBO visual album “Lemonade.

Gotham Star Confirms Series Finale Recast: 'Being Part of a Legacy Means Knowing When to Pass the Torch'

Gotham Star Confirms Series Finale Recast: 'Being Part of a Legacy Means Knowing When to Pass the Torch'
TV’s Catwoman will look quite different in Gotham‘s series finale.

Camren Bicondova, who has been with the Batman prequel series since the 2014 pilot, has confirmed that last Thursday’s penultimate episode marked her final appearance as Selina Kyle. She will be succeeded in the April 25 swan song by Banshee vet Lili Simmons, following a 10-year time jump.

“It’s important to me that I’m the one to tell you this because it was a choice that I made,” Bicondova wrote on Twitter. “I wanted to give (the character) Selina Kyle as much respect as possible. Some will

Signs of Solidarity and Strain Emerge as Week 2 of WGA-Talent Agency Standoff Begins

Hundreds of WGA members rallied solidly behind their union last week as the industry grappled with uncertainties spurred by the sudden break between writers and their talent agency representatives.

But as the standoff heads into its second week, signs of strain among some WGA members are beginning to emerge. Shalom Auslander, author and creator of the Showtime dramedy “Happyish,” penned a scathing “Official Coerced Termination Letter” to his reps at CAA that blasted the WGA for what Auslander describes as thuggish tactics in forcing members to fire their agents.

The letter, which is circulating in writer circles, likened Auslander’s

‘Game of Thrones’ Final Season Vegas Odds Reveal Wild Theories

‘Game of Thrones’ Final Season Vegas Odds Reveal Wild Theories
With “Game of Thrones” hype at an all-time high, Las Vegas may be raking in as much money as the Iron Bank.

HBO’s fantasy masterpiece has seized the gambling world’s attention nearly as much as the Super Bowl or Kentucky Derby.

Popular betting sites, like Bovada, have calculated the odds on Westeros’ most burning (and wildest) questions. For example, what are the odds that Arya will wear Littlefinger’s face?

Michael Che Smears Journalist Who Wrote About ‘SNL’ Co-Star Colin Jost

In response to Uproxx writer Steven Hyden penning an article titled “Why Does Everyone (Still) Hate ‘SNL’s Colin Jost?,” Michael Che defended his “Saturday Night Live” co-star the only way he knows how: by accusing Hyden of bestiality. In a series of Instagram stories embedded below, the “Weekend Update” anchor and “SNL” co-head writer (both duties he shares with Jost) pretended to have heard news stories about a “regular mediocre ass white dude, probably like a writer or something” who “had a secret life” involving rescuing dogs in order to perform lewd acts with them.

Che repeatedly brought up Hyden by name while pretending he wasn’t sure who the culprit was: “i dont [sic] think its [sic] stephen hyden, but that name is stuck in my head for some reason,” reads one example.

Che joined Jost on the “Weekend Update” desk in September 2014 and was named co-head writer of “SNL

‘Game of Thrones’: Norwegian Police Arrest the Night King, Finally Ending His Reign of Terror

‘Game of Thrones’: Norwegian Police Arrest the Night King, Finally Ending His Reign of Terror
Whether Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen can stop the Night King remains to be seen, but we now know at least one group for whom the White Walkers’ fearsome leader is no match: Norwegian police. “Our night watch has now apprehended the man to deter any further criminal activity on his behalf,” announced the Trondheim police force in a Facebook post that has since gone viral and delighted “Game of Thrones” fans the world over.

The Night King’s crimes, like his followers, are legion: “The police have received many complaints about a man from the northern region involved in criminal activity,” reads the same post. “Complaints include animal cruelty and property damage (there have been reports of a wall being destroyed), as well as threats to lay vast areas of land desolate.”

Our friends to the north weren’t just in it for the laughs, however. “Funny posts like

Netflix Is Experimenting With a ‘Play Random Episode’ Feature

If you have trouble choosing which episode of your favorite shows to watch on Netflix, the streaming giant may soon have a solution. The company is experimenting with an option that will allow viewers to play random episodes rather than choosing one on their lonesome, rolling out the feature on the Android app before deciding whether or not to implement it further.

“We are testing the ability for members to play a random episode from different TV series on the Android mobile app,” Netflix told Deadline in a statement yesterday. “These tests typically vary in length of time and by region, and may not become permanent.”

Netflix has many binge-friendly series, of course, and among those the new option is currently available for are “The Office,” “Arrested Development,” “New Girl,” and “Our Planet.” Shows for which the feature is available appear in a new row labeled, appropriately enough, “Play a Random Episode,

Performer of the Week: Bill Hader

Performer of the Week: Bill Hader
The Performer | Bill Hader

The Show | Barry

The Episode | “Past = Present x Future Over Yesterday” (April 14, 2019)

The Performance | As the talented hitman/not-so-talented actor at the center of HBO’s pitch-black comedy, Hader delivers an exquisitely subtle brand of acting that’s remarkable for how little it looks like acting. Barry is a tightly wound coil of suppressed emotion, never revealing the trauma he’s endured in his years as a hired killer, so it often looks like Hader is underplaying it. But this week, he let a tiny bit of that emotion peek out in a restrained yet riveting turn.

Angry Red Keeps Things Interesting on The Blacklist

Shows like The Blacklist need episodes that help move the story along. Episodes where nothing capital-m major happens. Episodes where characters have a realization or learn a new piece of information but don't make bold choices. "The Third Estate" was one of these episodes.

That's not a criticism.

‘Star Trek: Discovery’: How Tig Notaro Best Embodied Starfleet’s Values in Season 2

‘Star Trek: Discovery’: How Tig Notaro Best Embodied Starfleet’s Values in Season 2
[Editor’s note: The following contains mild spoilers for “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 2 Episode 14, “Such Sweet Sorry, Part 2.”]

Star Trek” has a history of bringing in unexpected stars, all drawn to the franchise by their passion for the source material. And with the latest iteration, “Star Trek: Discovery,” that tradition has continued in a number of respects, but none more interesting than the casting of Tig Notaro as engineer Jett Reno, introduced in the first episode of Season 2 and who proved to be a delightful presence over the course of the following episodes.

Notaro is best known as a stand-up comic whose riffs on her cancer battle and pop culture ephemera eventually led to the critically-acclaimed Amazon series “One Mississippi,” which ran for two seasons before its unfortunate cancelation. Her low-key but raw and honest work in “One Mississippi” was not one that might obviously lead to an appearance on the newest edition of the sci-fi icon, but she
