2020 Super Bowl: Jennifer Lopez, Shakira are the halftime show performers

September 26, 2019

The following is a press release from the National Football League:

Today, Pepsi, the NFL and Roc Nation announced cultural icons Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will perform during the Pepsi Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show on FOX at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, on Sunday, February 2, 2020.  Pepsi and the NFL collaborated with Roc Nation to bring these two icons together for the first time ever, for what will be an unforgettable performance on the world’s biggest stage.

“Ever since I saw Diana Ross fly off into the sky at the Halftime Show, I dreamed of performing at the Super Bowl,” said Lopez.  “And now it’s made even more special not only because it’s the NFL’s 100th season, but also because I am performing with a fellow Latina.  I can’t wait to show what us girls can do on the world’s biggest stage.”

“I’m so honored to be taking on one of the world’s biggest stages in the company of a fellow female artist to represent Latinos and Latinas from the U.S. and all over the world — and to top it off, on my birthday!” said Shakira.  “This is a true American dream and we are going to bring the show of a lifetime!”

Jennifer Lopez is an award-winning singer, actress, producer, and entertainer who has established herself in music, film, and television. She is a successful recording and touring artist who has sold over 75 million records and has a cumulative worldwide box-office gross of over $3 billion. As an artist, fashion icon, entrepreneur, and a philanthropist, Jennifer Lopez has been named to the TIME 100 list, Forbes’ Most Powerful Celebrity, and People’s first “Most Beautiful Woman in the World”, in addition to being nominated for both Golden Globe and GRAMMY awards and receiving the MTV Video Vanguard Award. Most recently, Lopez spent Summer 2019 touring the globe with her electrifying sold-out It’s My Party tour. She can currently be seen on the big screen as the notorious Ramona in the critically-acclaimed box office smash, Hustlers. As one of most influential female artists in history, Jennifer Lopez defines what it means to be a global icon and the ultimate multi-hyphenate.​

Shakira is a Colombian singer-songwriter and multi-GRAMMY® award winner.  She has sold over 75 million records worldwide and has won numerous awards including three GRAMMYs®, eleven Latin GRAMMYs®, and several World Music Awards, American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards, to name a few.  She is the only artist from South America to have a number one song in the U.S., has had four of the 20 top-selling hits of the last decade, and is one of the top-5 YouTube artists of all time.  Shakira’s last album “El Dorado” charted #1 on iTunes in 37 Countries, won Best Pop Vocal Album at the 2017 Latin GRAMMY® Awards, and Best Latin Pop Album at the 2018 GRAMMY® Awards. With over 10 billion streams, it is one of the most-streamed female albums of all time. In November 2018 she wrapped her hugely successful El Dorado World Tour.

2019 Primetime Emmy Awards: ‘Game of Thrones’ wins Best Drama Series; ‘Fleabag’ triumphs in top comedy categories

September 22, 2019

Emmys logo

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards (held at Microsoft Theater at L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles on September 22, 2019) had plenty of predictable wins but even more surprise victories. Fox had the U.S. telecast of the show, which had no host, and was produced by Don Mischer and Done + Dusted. The HBO fantasy series “Game of Thrones” (which debuted in 2011, and had its series finale in 2019), was the leading nominee going into  and predictably repeated its win for Outstanding Drama Series. But “Game of Thrones,” whose final episode received widespread criticism from fans, was shut out of many of the categories that it won in 2018, including the Emmys for writing and directing for a drama series, which went to HBO’s “Succession” and Netflix’s “Ozark,” respectively. The only other Emmy that “Game of Thrones” won at the ceremony was Peter Dinklage’s victory for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Although several “Game of Thrones” actors received Emmy nominations for the show over the years, Dinklage is the only actor who has won Emmy Awards (he’s won four) for “Game of Thrones.”

Amazon Prime Video’s “Fleabag” and its star/showrunner Phoebe Waller-Bridge also won big, triumphing over widely predicted “Veep” in the categories of Outstanding Comedy Series; Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series; and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series. “Fleabag” and “Veep,” just like “Game of Thrones,” had their final seasons in 2019. “Veep” was completely shut out of all the Emmy categories for which it was nominated.

In addition to Waller-Bridge, there were several other first-time Emmy winners, including Billy Porter of “Pose” (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series); Jodie Comer of “Killing Eve” (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series); Julia Garner of “Ozark” (Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series); Michelle Williams of “Fosse/Verdon” (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie); and Jharrel Jerome  of “When They See Us” (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie). Porter made Emmy history as the first openly gay man to be nominated for and to win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. He also became the second African American to win in this category.

Repeat winners included Bill Hader of “Barry” (Outstanding Lead Actor in a  Comedy Series”); Alex Borstein of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” (Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series); “Saturday Night Live” (Outstanding Variety Series; Outstanding Directing for a Variety Series);  “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver” (Outstanding Variety Talk Series; Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series); and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” (Outstanding Reality Competition). Tony Shalhoub, who won three Emmys for “Monk,” picked up his fourth Primetime Emmy, this time for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” (Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series). Shalhoub also has a Daytime Emmy for “The Band’s Visit” performance on the “Today” show.

The HBO’s “Chernobyl” triumphed in the categories of Outstanding Limited Series; Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special; and Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special

The 2019 Creative Arts Emmy Awards (for Emmy technical categories) took place September 14 and September 15 at Microsoft Theater at L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles. Highlights were televised on September 21 on FXX. A complete list of those winners can be found here.

The following is a press release from the Television Academy:

Nominations for the 71st Emmy Awards were announced today by the Television Academy, presenting the widest array of firsttime performer nominees since 2011.

In a ceremony hosted by Television Academy Chairman and CEO Frank Scherma along with presenters Ken Jeong (“The Masked Singer”) and D’Arcy Carden (“The Good Place”), not only were new faces prominently recognized, but also an equally fresh group of shows together with acclaimed, veteran television programs.

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” secured 32 nominations, the most for any program in a single season, beating a 25-year standing record set by “NYPD Blue.” Over its eight-season run, the series has received a total of 161 nominations.

“Game of Thrones” was followed by “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” (20), “Chernobyl” (19), “Saturday Night Live” (18), “Barry” (17), “Fosse/Verdon” (17) and “When They See Us” (16). In addition, overall cast contributions were acknowledged with “Game of Thrones’” 10 nominations across five performer categories, and eight nominations across four performer categories for “When They See Us.’

“It’s great to see such an array of new talent honored for their excellent work,” said Scherma. “While our voting membership recognized several returning, acclaimed programs, there are many Emmy categories that feature fresh shows and emerging talents, celebrating the opportunity and continued creative growth offered by television.” Of this year’s eight nominees for Outstanding Drama Series, five were new to the category. Newcomers, spread across a variety of distribution platforms, include “Bodyguard,” “Killing Eve,” “Ozark,” “Pose” and “Succession.” “Better Call Saul,” “Game of Thrones” and “This Is Us” return to the category.

Among this year’s seven Outstanding Comedy Series nominees, there are four first timers representing a wide range of storytelling. “Fleabag,” “The Good Place” and “Schitt’s Creek,” along with freshman show “Russian Doll,” join returning hits “Barry,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Veep.”

Emilia Clarke, Mandy Moore, Jodie Comer and Laura Linney received their first Lead Actress in a Drama Series nominations, joined by returning nominees Robin Wright and Sandra Oh, and previous Emmy winner Viola Davis. Lead Actor in a Drama Series nominees Kit Harington and Billy Porter are new to the category, joining previous category winner Sterling K. Brown and returning nominees Milo Ventimiglia, Jason Bateman and Bob Odenkirk.

Michael Douglas and Eugene Levy are new to the Lead Actor in a Comedy Series category and join previous nominees Don Cheadle, Anthony Anderson and Ted Danson, along with last year’s category winner Bill Hader. Nominees for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series include first-time Emmy nominees (in this category) Natasha Lyonne, Catherine O’Hara and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who join previous category nominee Christina Applegate, last year’s winner Rachel Brosnahan and 11time Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Other first-time performer nominations include Amy Adams, Anthony Carrigan, Gwendoline Christie, Sian Clifford, Paul Dano, Benicio del Toro, Hugh Grant, Michael McKean, Kumail Nanjiani, Chris O’Dowd, Rosamund Pike, Sam Rockwell, Kristin Scott Thomas, Rufus Sewell, Stellan Skarsgård, Sophie Turner, Emily Watson and Michelle Williams among a long list of distinguished and beloved performers.

Other multiple nominees across different properties include: six-time Emmy winner James Corden secured nominations in multiple categories, including Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program (“The World’s Best”) and for his work on “Carpool Karaoke” and “The Late Late Show with James Corden” franchises; Sandra Oh (“Killing Eve,” “Saturday Night Live”); RuPaul (“RuPaul’s Drag Race,” “RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked”); Patricia Arquette (“Escape at Dannemora,” “The Act”); Adam Sandler (“Saturday Night Live,” “Adam Sandler: 100% Fresh”); as well as first-time nominee Fiona Shaw (“Killing Eve,” “Fleabag”). First-time nominee Marie Kondo received two nominations for “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo.” Ava DuVernay was nominated for Outstanding Writing and Outstanding Directing for “When They See Us.”

Leading the nominations in totals by platform were HBO (137), Netflix (117), and NBC (58). Nomination rosters will be finalized from July 16 to July 30, 2019. The rosters may be revised in cases where names or titles are incorrect, or appeals for changes— including the addition or removal of names—are approved by the Primetime Emmy Awards Committee. Producer eligibility is based primarily on title. The nominees in certain program categories will be announced later this month. Final-round online voting begins August 15, 2019.

The complete list of Emmy nominations, media credential applications, and other Academy news are all available at Emmys.com.

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards will air Saturday, September 21 at 8:00 PM ET/PT on FXX, and will be executive produced by Bob Bain.

In addition to WBTVG producing keys for “Batwoman” and “Pennyworth,” HBO will also release an exclusive “Watchmen” keycard that will be available to fans at SDCC.

With more than 40,000 branded room keys available at nearly 40 participating major hotels throughout the San Diego area during Comic-Con, fans will find doors opening all over the city thanks to the Wayne family fortune — and a group of outlaw superheroes.

  • “Pennyworth” premieres Sunday, July 28, at 9/8c on EPIX. Executive produced by Bruno Heller (“Gotham,” “The Mentalist”) and Danny Cannon (“Gotham,” “CSI” series), the one-hour drama from Warner Horizon Scripted Television is an origin story that follows Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon), a former British SAS soldier who forms a security company in 1960s London and goes to work with Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge), Bruce Wayne’s billionaire father.
  • “Batwoman” premieres Sunday, October 6, at 8/7c on The CW. From Warner Bros. Television and executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash”), Caroline Dries (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Smallville”), Geoff Johns (“Wonder Woman,” “Aquaman”) and Sarah Schechter (“Supergirl,” “Black Lightning”), the latest series in Berlanti Productions’ DCTV Arrow-verse follows Kate Kane (Ruby Rose), a highly trained street fighter who soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman.
  • “Watchmen” debuts in fall 2019 on HBO. Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, this drama series from executive producer Damon Lindelof embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name while attempting to break new ground of its own. “Watchmen” is produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producer/writer Damon Lindelof, executive producer/director Nicole Kassell, executive producer Tom Spezialy, executive producer/director Stephen Williams and executive producer Joseph Iberti.
