The nominations for this years Emmy Awards are were announced by our favorite inmate of OITNB’s Crazy Eyes Uzo Aduba and SYTYCD Cat Deeley… What I’m amazed by was the most enduring performances of the year recognized on this honored platform, first up…

Empire’s greatest asset Taraji P. Henson and How to Get Away with Murder’s Viola Davis each received nominations for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

Blackish’s Anthony Anderson and House of Lies’ Don Cheadle received nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.

Orange is the New Black’s Uzo Aduba received a nod for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

Getting On’s Neicy Nash received a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

Brooklyn Nine Nine’s Andre Braugher picked up the nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

Nightingale’s David Oyelowo received a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a mini-series or Movie

Bessie’s Queen Latifah and Michael Kenneth Williams both received a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress and Actor in a mini-series or Movie

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie nods went to Regina King for American Crime, Angela Bassett for American Horror Story: Freakshow and Monique for Bessie.

And Kandi Alexander(Scandal) and Cicely Tyson(HTGAWM) received nominations for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series.

Interesting tidbit: Now recently every nomination announcement draws it’s own share of controversy by a disgruntled artist airing their frustrations in a dramatic fashion (i.e Kayne and Nicki Minaj). In this instance, Empire’s Lee Daniels was no different by venting his disappointment of the devastatingly hit series being snubbed for Outstanding Drama Series.  Being that it’s brought in historical numbers for Fox, which is airing this years Emmys, to not be giving such an honor but Hollywood always has it’s way of reminding individuals where the true power resides… I guess Mo’Nique was right after all.

Make sure you tune in to support your favorite nominee Sept 20th on Fox

Okay Gladiators was that not the most riveting hour of Network TV?

LADIES AND GENTS WELCOME BACK TO SHONDALAND

Now I was expecting a gritty kickoff to the continuation of season 4 but this was far beyond my comprehension, can you say extreme mindf&!k, but we also just witnessed phenomenal thespian-ship in conjunction with a compelling story.  ( A message to “State of Affairs”  THIS IS HOW IT’S DONE! I was so bored with that show, it didn’t deserve a recap….sorry) now back to our regularly scheduled program…

I was captivated the whole hour (more so 45 mins) and I was glued to my treadmill so Olivia’s “RUN” was a fitting title for me, but the suspense had me motivated to push through the obstacles as if i was living vicariously through her desperation to get home. I was also intrigued by the directors vision of giving a panoramic view of each antagonizing moment.

Olivia ended the first half of the season by making one of the healthiest, most rational decisions she’s made in a long time. She decided that she was going to try to figure out how to take care of herself. Unfortunately for her, being kidnapped forced her to do her self-reflection and soul-searching in a much more brutal way than she intended. And it looks like it may have broken her. From the outside, Olivia always looks like she has everything together. But the truth is, she’s a mess and has been a mess for years. The way that she’s dealt with her own life being in shambles is to focus on fixing everyone else’s problems so she doesn’t have to face her own. She didn’t have that option this time. On the one hand, this is a good thing. I’m not saying getting kidnapped and held for ransom is a good thing. That totally sucks. But the fact that Olivia has to figure out how to fight for herself again is a good thing. For the last several years, Olivia has relied on the fact that Fitz loves her and will do anything for her. So even when things are bad for her, in the back of her mind, she’s always believed that Fitz would come for her. She’s not wrong. Then Jake got added to the mix and he’s been protecting her too. So even when Olivia went out on a limb, she’s always had a rather solid safety net. Not so much in this situation. She is not completely on her own because I imagine that Jake, Fitz, Huck and the rest are working furiously to find out where she is. But in the meantime, Olivia’s got to reach down deep to find the fighter and survivor she used to be. One thing that’s abundantly clear even at this early stage is that this ordeal is going to change Olivia. Whether that change is for the better remains to be seen

INTERESTING EXCERPTS: 

“Who’s your father, Ike Turner?”  Now that was a classic line from an unexpected place… (Scene; Ian ask Olivia while looking for tracking device…too soon to be that close)

A bras’ underwire is a girl’s best friend in times of danger

No Millie, Cyrus, Huck, hope that’s not a sign of things to come mid-season

So all of this to start a war?? With who??

Let the #saveolivia campaign begin

There are many things that fans love about Scandal protagonist Olivia Pope, one of those things being her fabulous fashion sense.

On Thursday night’s when new episodes are generally premiered, Twitter is filled with viewers gasping at the show’s heart-pounding twists and turns and commenting on Olivia’s super chic get-ups. But what if there were a way to give fans a piece of Olivia Pope’s closet through an inspired clothing line? Would they wear the items?
