Sandra Oh made history

Earlier today, nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards were announced, and people had some strong feelings about its nominees.

Some of this year's strongest contenders included Game of Thrones, which led with the most nominations (22, to be exact) for any show, as well as Saturday Night Live and Westworld, which came in at a close second with a tie of 21 nominations. The Handmaid's Tale led the most nominations for a Hulu series with 20 nods, while FX's The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story scored the most nominations for limited series with 18 nominations. (Donald Glover's Atlanta followed shortly behind with 16 noms.) 

Actresses Issa Rae and Sandra Oh had noteworthy Emmy nominations: Rae scored her first-ever nod for "Lead Actress in a Comedy Series," while Oh made history by becoming the first Asian woman to be nominated in the "Lead Actress In A Drama Series" category. Netflix also made history after it was revealed that it beat out HBO, which had led Emmy nominations for the past 18 years, with 112 nominations.

Tons of people were glad to see the shows get the recognition they deserve, but others were pretty peeved that Twin Peaks wasn't nominated for any major limited series categories.




This Is Us fans expressed that Mandy Moore should have been nominated for her performance as Rebecca Pearson.

And though Netflix's GLOW secured multiple nominations (including one for "Outstanding Comedy Series" and one for "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series" thanks to Betty Gilpin), people were disappointed that Alison Brie didn't get recognized for her role.


The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards will air live on NBC at 8pm EST on Monday, September 17. Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost and Michael Che will host. You can see the rest of this year's nominations, here

He announced the news today

On Monday, Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for president again, after he lost the primary in 2016 to Hillary Clinton. And although he was very popular during the 2016 election, his announcement is drawing mixed reactions online.

Many of his previous supporters, including celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, were excited about him joining the 2020 race, voicing their support of his announcement.

But others seem to want him to disappear, even pretending not to know who he is. And these reactions have turned out, in some cases, to be hilarious.

The lack of excitement for his announcement may be because of the recent allegations of sexual assault which apparently occurred within his 2016 campaign, and which he claims he didn't know about. It could also be due to his base, who supported him even after he lost the primary to the detriment of Clinton's campaign.

Some are also calling out the fact that Clinton has been effectively shunned following her loss, while Sanders seems to be being welcomed back with open arms.

The pieces will take your athleisure look to the next level

American Apparel just dropped its first activewear line since the brand's relaunch last year, and I can already tell that these looks are going to make up my entire summer wardrobe.

The new line, called FORWARD, offers a variety of styles in lightweight fabrics like flyweight satin, which is an imitation of boxing gear; lame tricot; and cotton Spandex. All of the fabrics feature a four-way stretch, making the clothes "suitable for training but also designed for life outside the gym."

With the collection, American Apparel also launched an inclusive campaign called How We Play, which shows a diverse range of models, including blind Paralympic runner David Brown and curvy yoga instructor Luisa Fonseca.

The collection's styles offer a wide range of looks which will fit with just about any aesthetic, whether you're going hard at the gym or looking for a casual off-day outfit. Personally, I'm excited about the iridescent looks and the rainbow patterned bra and bottoms, which I will definitely be rocking at Pride this year.

The entire line is also super-affordable, capping out at $48, with most products priced in the $20-to-$30 range. You can shop FORWARD collection online, now.
