For the second year in a row, a member of SNL has been nominated for an Emmy award (Bill Hader last year). Kate is definitely up against some strong competition:
Mayim Bialik, The Big Bang Theory
Julie Bowen, Modern Family
Allison Janney, Mom
Kate Mulgrew, Orange Is the New Black
Kate McKinnon, Saturday Night Live
Anna Chlumsky, Veep
But I’m an SNL FTW kind of guy and there isn’t a scenario I can picture that doesn’t have her giving an acceptance speech.
All the other nominees are great at portraying their respective characters, but Kate McKinnon is great at portraying ALL her characters. Give her the win. If for no other reason but because Seth Meyers supports her.
So very happy for Kate McKinnon and her Emmy nomination today. She is a natural born killer!

All aboard! Choo choo! Anyone who has been watching Shameless already knows Emmy Rossum is a classic triple threat option, but I’m going to remind you anyway. She’s smart (graduated high school at 15, attended Stanford and Columbia) sexy and one hell of a talented actress. Besides Shameless, she has starred in a wide array of movies, including Phantom of the Opera and The Day After Tomorrow. But back to Shameless. Rossum plays Fiona, the lead character in a crazy talented ensemble cast. Without getting too into the plot of the show, Fiona takes care of her younger brothers and sisters while her substance dependent father and hit or miss (mostly miss) mother are usually nowhere to be found. She’s been killing it ever since the show debuted in 2011. Also, I’d be foolish not to mention that she has grade A boobs, boobs which you see quite a bit in the show. Moral of the story: Emmy Rossum is awesome. Shameless season four starts January 12th.
Someone who looks as handsome as Jon Hamm does clean shaven shouldn’t be allowed to grow a mean beard like this. I was always under the impression it was one or the other. If you looked good clean shaven then your beard would come in all patchy, and if you could grow a serious beard then maybe you had some type of facial deformity. Not Jon Hamm. He’s a mythical creature who’s handsomeness knows no limits. I don’t want to grow a beard now. I have to.
