大家都知道《英雄联盟手游》国际服已经上线快半年，其中有很多活动奖励和赛季奖励，对于还未上线的国服玩家来说已经错过了，但是官方这次明确表示，LOL手游国际服已经结束的活动及奖励，国服上线之后会有专属活动，而且可以用更轻松简单的方式免费获取，包括K/DAOUT、牛年特辑等。 (Photo by Jennifer Clasen/HBO)TV Shows That Celebrate Latino CultureHispanic actors have been part of the TV ecosystem practically since the medium was born, but it took Lucy s love of Ricky Ricardo in 1951 s I Love Lucy to highlight the intimate family life of a Latino character and help set aside a strict vaqueros-and-villains tradition of Latino characters on TV. Stereotypes still appear — these days more often as drug dealers and human traffickers — but TV has evolved so that representation is no longer simply superficial or disparaging.Take HBO s refreshingly surreal Los Espookys. Fred Armisen wanted to create a show that isn’t an explanation of Latino culture, that’s moving past the foreignness of it,” the former Saturday Night Live talent told The New York Times about the Spanish-language series he co-created with Julio Torres and Ana Fabrega for the U.S. television market.Los Espookys follows a group of friends who fake horror events for a living in an unidentified Latin American country. The show stars Torres, Fabrega, Cassandra Ciangherotti, and

Highest Tomatometer(Photo by Everett Collection)The Net 40%Hackers 33%Virtuosity 32%Johnny Mnemonic 13%With a 40% Tomatometer score, The Net wins this category purely because it’s the least Rotten. And why is that? Well, it’s anchored by a likable performance by Sandra Bullock, who plays a cybersecurity specialist trapped in ahem the net of a Hitchockian suspense-thriller involving stolen identities, cyberterrorists, and online pizza-ordering. The movie feels relatively grounded, as there are no cybernetically-enhanced characters, skateboarding villains, or naked bad guys who cut off their fingers. Director Irwin Winkler chose to use the newish technology of the internet to craft an old-fashioned suspense-thriller, as opposed to setting the film far in the future, like, say, the 2021 of Johnny Mnemonic. By blending low-stakes hacking (control-shift) with age-old storytelling, he made the most mainstream of the 1995 computer movies and the one that the least number of critics felt compelled to ESC.In other words, by playing it safe and smart, The Net claimed the best reviews. Winkler’s background as a producer on Goodfellas and Rocky helped, as he knew how to budget and steer a successful film. On the other hand, Johnny Mnemonic was a proposed independent film directed by a relative newcomer that became a summer tentpole and allegedly went through major edits just weeks before release. Similarly, Virtuosity was allegedly rewritten during production, and Washington and Crowe still dislike the movie. Hackers had no interest in playing it safe, and instead focused on the hacker counterculture, which left it open for critical disdain (it was too cool for critics — and most viewers at the time).The best thing about The Net is Sandra Bullock proving how well she can act in front of a computer screen. Todd A. Marks, a consultant on The Net, said, “Some actors can’t really act and type at the same time; Sandra could.” Watch The Net again, and you’ll see what we’re talking about.Highest Audience ScoreHackers 68%The Net 44%Virtuosity 32%Johnny Mnemonic 31%While the Ian Softley-directed Hackers didn’t light the world on fire during its brief September release, it managed to hack its way into the world’s consciousness by effusive word-of-mouth and passed-around VHS tapes. The film is loaded with multiple scenes of hacking and references to iconic cyberpunk author William Gibson (who wrote the original short story Johnny Mnemonic, by the way) and the Hacker Manifesto, but what makes it stand out is its focus on a family unit of likable outcasts who crash on each other s couches and roller-blade their way to victory. The cult classic is a scrappy film featuring authentic-feeling teenagers who go toe-to-toe with a nefarious computer security officer who calls himself The Plague (Fisher Stevens), and who is looking to get rich by embezzling from his employer. Re-watching Hackers in 2020, it’s neat to see how incredibly of-its-time it is, yet somehow also forward-thinking in its funky costuming (still popular today) and its casting of big-screen newcomers Angelina Jolie and Jonny Lee Miller.With over 122,000 audience ratings and reviews that declare it the best movie of all time, Hackers scores an easy win in this category by being both charmingly retro and timeless, thanks to its cyber-world and likable characters like Joey (Jesse Bradford), Cereal Killer (Matthew Lillard), Nikon (Laurence Mason), and Phreak (Renoly Santiago).Biggest Box Office Take(Photo by Everett Collection)The Net .5 millionVirtuosity millionJohnny Mnemonic millionHackers .5 millionThis was an easy win for The Net and Sandra Bullock, who was coming off of the 2 million-grossing While You Were Sleeping, in which she starred as a lonely woman who lies to an entire family about being the fiancè of a man in a coma, then falls in love with the man s brother, and everybody is cool with it. Bullock was so effortlessly likable, as she always is, that the world completely ignored the insanity of the plot. The same thing essentially happened with The Net, a Rotten movie with a 44% Audience Score that still somehow pulled in 1 million worldwide. Basically, The Net could have been replotted as a fishing movie or retitled While You Were Typing, and it still would have been popular if Bullock was the lead. Also, the PG-13 rating and prime July release were enough to make sure it made more money by its second week than the other three films.With that said, none of these films topped the box office during their opening weekends; Johnny Mnemonic debuted at #6, Virtuosity and Hackers both opened at #4, and even The Net only managed to debut at #2. This is remarkable when you consider that, in 1995, movies featuring a red-hot Denzel Washington or Keanu Reeves struggled to make money. Of course, both Johnny Mnemonic and Virtuosity were critically derided for being too silly and derivative, but the 1990s weren’t a particularly great time for virtual reality thrillers in general, as The Lawnmower Man, The Thirteenth Floor, and Ghost in the Machine all failed to crack the zeitgeist.Which Movie Aged the Best?While The Net has the most timeless and grounded plot involving identity theft and internet security, nowadays it plays like any other 1990s thriller, except that it ends with Sandra Bullock bonking a hitman on the head with a fire extinguisher. People still order pizza online, and online security and fraud are still a problem, but for all its foresight, The Net hasn’t inspired a cult following like that of Hackers. Hackers captured lightning in a bottle with memorable catchphrases ( Hack the planet! ), an inspired soundtrack featuring Prodigy and Orbital, and a singular dedication to sunglasses with circular lenses. The film is still mentioned in countless articles (here, here, here, here, and here), and costume designer Roger Burton’s eclectic fashion is beloved, even though in 1995, the actors were thinking “What the f**k is this guy on?” For the film s 20th anniversary, Shout Factory! released a loaded Blu-ray and the cast and crew screened the film all over the world to packed theaters.Virtuosity and Johnny Mnemonic aren t without a few moments of their own, but it’s hard to say they’ve aged the best when the lead actors and writers have virtually disowned them. Johnny Mnemonic still has its charms, though, like its cyberpunk dystopia and a long-haired Dolph Lundgren chewing up the scenery. And did we mention the porpoise? Yeah, Keanu takes Lundgren down with the help of a porpoise. That s worth something.Which Movie Got the Most Right?After scrolling through countless articles about the most realistic hacks and watching videos of hackers analyzing movie scenes, we’re going to go with Hackers here. The Net is a close second, but despite Todd A. Marks being proud of the work he did on that film, he admits “it’s a movie, not a documentary. It’s always a fine line between accurate and visually interesting.” Which makes sense, because if The Net was 100% accurate, it would be a 12-hour film mostly focused on computers loading data. Obviously we didn’t pick Virtuosity, since killer androids aren’t running amok (at least, not that we know of), and despite the very real dangers of email, the world hasn’t resorted to Johnny Mnemonic s data couriers to deliver sensitive information. Of course, Virtuosity and Johnny Mnemonic admittedly weren t striving for realism, and both were so highly speculative about what was possible with computers that we can’t necessarily say that they got things wrong.On the other hand, what Hackers did so well was to capture the actual spirit of, well, hackers. Vice’s Motherboard interviewed real hackers about their love for the film, and while they admit that it’s “fantastical Hollywood stuff” and that it borrowed from the plot of Superman III, they also say “it’s quite possibly the single greatest hacker film known to hackerkind.” The actors went to hacking schools and attended conventions to nail the culture, and they developed a camaraderie that is clearly seen on screen. Several of the “hacks” in the movie have even earned a seal of approval from techies, as the the TV station hack, the editing of the class attendance lists, and the creation of fake personal ads are all possible.Softley realized pretty early on that he didn’t just want to depict pretty people staring at computer screens, so he and Peter Chiang, the VFX supervisor, nearly drove themselves insane creating a visually appealing (and totally unrealistic) world to help audiences understand what exactly was going on. It looks dated now, but in 1995, with the budget they had, it was a brave new world. In the end, they did exactly what The Net s Marks described, skirting that fine line between accurate and visually interesting, and all they got for their trouble was a bona fide cult classic.Final Result(Photo by ©MGM courtesy Everett Collection)So who wins our little unofficial showdown of 1995 s cyber-thrillers? It s Hackers, of course, with its impeccable fashion sense, it s unforgettable one-liners, its earnest, surprisingly authentic portrayal of counterculture attitudes, and so much more. As The Plague would say, There is no right or wrong, only fun and boring, and Hackers is anything but boring, so if you ve never seen it, don t take our word and our very scientific findings here for it. Boot up or shut up.Hackers was released in U.S. theaters on September 15, 1995. It is available to rent or buy on FandangoNOW, Vudu, Amazon, Google Play, and iTunes, and it is currently streaming on HBO Max.

CHRIS PRATT TO STAR IN KARATE COMEDY THE BLACK BELT (Photo by Chuck Zlotnick/©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)For most of the last seven years since Chris Pratt scored two big hits in 2014 with The LEGO Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy, his big screen output has focused on big franchise action movies like his various movies as Marvel s Star-Lord and the Jurassic World franchise. Pratt s first real big break, of course, was as the goofball Andy Dwyer on the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation, and it looks like he may channel the spirit of Andy again, as he will star in a karate-themed movie called The Black Belt for frequent Saturday Night Live sketch director Paul Briganti. Pratt will star in The Black Belt as an eccentric uncle who trains his shy teenage nephew in the ways of karate. The role of the nephew hasn t been cast yet.8. LANCE REDDICK TO REPRISE CONCIERGE ROLE IN JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 4 (Photo by ©Summit Entertainment)When it comes to franchises with recurring casts, it s easy to take it for granted when it s announced that a particular actor is indeed returning for the next movie, but that doesn t mean it s not news. Prolific TV actor Lance Reddick (The Wire, Fringe, LOST) has been in every John Wick movie thus far as the mysterious Charon, the concierge of the Continental, where international assassins come to mingle and rest up, and he will do the same again in John Wick: Chapter 4. Reddick and star Keanu Reeves will be joined by a cast of new co-stars that includes Donnie Yen, Shamier Anderson, Hiroyuki Sanada, and pop star Rina Sawayama.9. COLD PURSUIT AND GREENLAND SEQUELS THAWING (Photo by ©STX Entertainment)Despite the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the movie business, two actors who showed they were still able to attract audiences (on some level) were Scotland s Gerard Butler (with Greenland, Certified Fresh at 78%) and Northern Ireland s Liam Neeson (with Honest Thief and The Ice Road). Just before COVID-19 struck, Neeson also starred in the action thriller Cold Pursuit (Fresh at 69%), and this week, the news broke that Studiocanal is moving forward with plans for a Cold Pursuit sequel (along with lots of other new projects announced at Cannes on Tuesday), which will presumably find Neeson s snowplow driver again in some sort of danger. Cold Pursuit 2 wasn t the only snow-themed sequel to make the news this week, as Greenland: Migration was confirmed to start filming in 2022, with Butler, Morena Baccarin, and director Ric Roman Waugh all returning for the sequel, which will focus on the family from the first film coping with life (spoiler) in the post-apocalyptic world following the events of Greenland.On an Apple device?

Opening This Weekend
Fans lost their minds when Saturday Night Live announced this week that both Game of Thrones Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and K-Pop supergroup BTS would appear in upcoming episodes. It was almost enough to overshadow the Operation Varsity Blues scandal that hit this week — but not quite.TOP STORYCollege Admissions Scandal Rocks Hollywood; TV Star Reportedly Loses Jobs(Photo by Rodin Eckenroth/Getty Images; Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)In what federal investigators dubbed Operation Varsity Blues, actresses Lori Loughlin, who played Aunt Becky in Full House and its sequel series Fuller House, and Felicity Huffman, who won an Emmy for her role as Lynette Scavo in Desperate Housewives, are among 50 people who face federal charges for their parts in a college admissions bribery scandal, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. Dozens of individuals involved in a nationwide conspiracy that facilitated cheating on college entrance exams and the admission of students to elite universities as purported athletic recruits were arrested by federal agents in multiple states and charged in documents unsealed on March 12, 2019, in federal court in Boston, the DOJ said. Athletic coaches from Yale, Stanford, USC, Wake Forest and Georgetown, among others, are implicated, as well as parents and exam administrators. The lead defendant, William Rick Singer, pled guilty on March 12 in the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts to counts of racketeering, money laundering, conspiracy to defraud the U.S., and obstruction of justice and will be sentenced on June 19.The government charged Huffman, Loughlin, and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. Loughlin surrendered to federal authorities and posted a million bond on Wednesday, CNN reported. The Giannullis agreed to a pay bribes totaling 0,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew—thereby facilitating their admission to USC, according to the complaint.Huffman, who was arrested at her home, posted a 0,000 bond and surrendered her passport to the FBI. She and her husband, Shameless star William H. Macy, to fake charity Key Worldwide Foundation allegedly to get her daughter a higher score on the SATs. The criminal complaint also includes transcriptions of phone calls between Singer, Huffman, and her spouse setting up the SAT cheating. Macy is not named in the complaint and has not been charged.Loughlin, Giannulli, and Huffman will next appear in court on March 29 in Boston. Loughlin also reportedly has lost her job on Netflix s Fuller House, this after Hallmark Channel cut ties with her, Deadline reported.The scandal set off a firestorm of criticism on social media, with many observers complaining about money, class, and privilege.Given the scandal emerging today, this graph deserves to be seen again.A rich person with a 900 on their SAT is more likely to graduate with a bachelor s degree than a poor person with a 1500.#collegescam #operationvarsityblues pic.twitter.com/3n5u9U8jdU Ryan Burge 📊 (@ryanburge) March 12, 2019SNL Taps Jon Snow and K-Pop Superstars BTS for Upcoming Episodes(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO; Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images for dcp; Jonathan Leibson/Getty Images for FIJI Water)Game of Thrones star Kit Harington and Korean pop band BTS will appear in upcoming episodes of Saturday Night Live, NBC Entertainment announced via social media this week. The sketch-comedy series line-up is as follows:March 30: host Sandra Oh with musical guest Tame ImpalaApril 6: host Kit Harington with musical guest Sara BareillesApril 13: host Emma Stone with musical guest BTSAnd the internet got hyped QUEEN EMMA STONE AND KINGS BTS ON THE SAME NIGHT ON SNL YES sabrina (@_btssyoongi) March 13, 2019(Rotten Tomatoes is owned by NBCUniversal.)The One Where Friends Wasn’t Rebooted(Photo by ©Warner Bros/Everett Collection)Revivals of classic 90s sitcoms are in vogue (see: Will Grace, Murphy Brown, Mad About You), but there’s one reboot we won’t be seeing on the small screen any time soon: Friends. Creator Marta Kauffman told Rolling Stone that there are several reasons why that just isn’t gonna happen.“One, the show is about a time in your life when your friends are your family. It’s not that time anymore. All we’d be doing is putting those six actors back together, but the heart of the show would be gone,” she said. “Two, I don’t know what good it does us. The show is doing just fine, people love it. [A reunion] could only disappoint. ‘The One Where Everyone’s Disappointed. ”What If? Could Be the Latest Disney+ Project(Photo by Marvel)Another comic book is headed to the small screen: An animated TV anthology adaptation of What If? is currently in the works for Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+. According to Slashfilm, Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige are set to produce the series, which, like the comics, will focus on what the Marvel universe would look like if certain key moments had happened differently. Per Slashfilm, one episode is in the works involving What If? Vol. 1 #47, which posited what could have happened if Loki had found the hammer of Thor — and could potentially mean actors from the Marvel Cinematic Universe would reprise their roles in the series.Attack of the Clones(Photo by BBC America)Orphan Black could live on: According to Variety, a new series set in the same world as the original show, about a woman who discovers she is a clone created in an international scientific conspiracy, is being developed at AMC. While there will be ties to Orphan Black, it will “not be a spinoff or reboot of the original series, but rather a completely new story set in the same world.” Producers are currently recruiting a writer.Netflix’s Royal Baby
ecs think is marketable,” Rodriguez says, adding that this means they have to have original series because they learned “early on” that options from mainstream outlets were limiting. And while they do have name-recognizable content like the original Queer as Folk and Gay of Thrones, the popular Funny or Die webseries from Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness, Rodriguez and Daniels point to other titles in their catalogue like the drag-themed docu-series, Queens of Kings, and Before I Got Famous. That web series stars Xingcheng You, a Chinese immigrant who is both looking for love and his big break in Hollywood, and focuses on stereotypes that still exist in the gay dating culture.For A/V Club Enthusiasts: Rooster TeethRooster Teeth was launched in 2003 by some friends who wanted to be the next Quentin Tarantino or Kevin Smith, but couldn’t get into festivals. Co-founder Bernie Burns told journalists at the summer 2018 Television Critics Association press tour that their service took off when “we discovered and pioneered a method of animation where we could use the 3D gaming engines in popular video games to make animation.” This led to what he touts as the longest-running digital series ever, the military-themed sci-fi comedy Red vs. Blue. They also have reality series, live-action shorts, and more.For Cult Classic Connoisseurs: Shout! FactoryWho needs reboots when you can have the classics? The TV vertical of this digitized tribute to old-school charm has everything from cult classics like Mystery Science Theater 3000 (85% Tomatometer) to relics from the years of rabbit ears like Father Knows Best and Car 54, Where Are You?. There’s also original programming like Why We Love It, a web series that strives to justify users’ love for programming of acquired taste like Rowan Atkinson’s Mr. Bean and the Nicolas Cage–Jennifer Beals campfest Vampire’s Kiss (61% TM). Gene Pao, Shout! Factory’s Senior Vice President of Digital Media, says that, “over the years we’ve found that viewers are particularly interested in ‘modernized nostalgia’ — cult and classic TV and film that shape today’s pop culture.” Shout! plays into this with marathon viewings like MST3K Turkey Day on Thanksgiving, during which Pao says “viewers can interact with each other via chat.”For Horror Buffs: ShudderThis AMC-owned streaming service celebrates the worlds of gore and supernatural. And while it doesn’t have its parent company’s juggernaut, The Walking Dead, its TV section does live up to its promise of offering “a constant stream of killer content.” Titles include AMC s adaptation of author Joe Hill s NOS4A2 (70% Tomatometer), and the documentary series Robert Kirkman’s Secret History of Comics as well as original programming like its anthology, Neil Gaiman s Likely Stories, and a partnering TWD’s Greg Nicotero on a revamp of the classic Creepshow. Shudder general manager Craig Engler says “we can do shows that other people can’t” because they aren’t as beholden to ratings.For Indie Aficionados: Sundance NowA SVOD companion to SundanceTV, General Manager Jan Diedrichsen told journalists at the winter 2018 TCA press tour that the goal of both is to find a way to “best serve fans of premium indie content in a deeper way.” This service is the home for original programming like This Close (100% Tomatometer), a rom-com of sorts about two best friends and their relationship woes that’s based on series of shorts from the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. There are also series that originated on its linear channel counterpart, like the Joanne Froggatt–Ioan Gruffudd thriller Liar (62% Tomatometer) and other fine options.For Francophiles: TV5monde (and others)(Photo by TV5monde US)Grab the macarons and red wine! This Paris-based network offers a way to watch popular French series with the aid of subtitles (and without the need of a passport). Streaming is available through Sling, and programs include the 2019 rom-com hit Un si grand soleil, which centers on family and friends in Marseille, and the police detective drama Caïn.For BET Fans Craving More: Urban Movie ChannelDespite its title, UMC actually has a rather robust TV section as well. These include episodes of WE tv’s long-running reality series, Growing Up Hip Hop. Original series include the drama 5th Ward, which is based on director Greg Carter s similarly named movie. “We pay very close attention to viewership trends and feedback from our subscribers to understand what’s working and what’s not and use that as a guide for greenlight decisions on any new or classic series,” UMC General Manager Sylvia George says, adding that their primary target audience is black women. “At a high level, the type of programming that resonates with UMC viewers ranges from romantic dramas and comedies to female-driven stories to series that push the envelope in a compelling and relatable way.”For Cinephiles: Criterion ChannelAfter the November 2018 death of FilmStruck, several other streaming options clamored to become the rightful heir to the cinephile throne, and the Criterion Collection’s streaming component is quickly rising up that rank. In addition to celebrating classic and cult cinema from around the world, the channel also has special features like behind-the-scenes footage and a guest programmer series.If Criterion isn’t to your liking, other streamers that concentrate on classic and/or under-the-radar cinema include SnagFilms and MUBI. Services like Kanopy and Hoopla have similar offerings and work in conjunction with local libraries.For Those Who Love The Great White Way: BroadwayHDLots of theater fans would like to give regular regards to Broadway, but not all of them can take regular pilgrimages to New York City (or afford the ticket prices once they’re there). In those instances, there’s BroadwayHD. The service, which Tony Award-winning producers Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley founded in 2015, offers full-length stage plays and musicals at legal and considerably much better quality than those grainy videos you can find on YouTube. Productions have included musicals like 42nd Street, Falsettos, She Loves Me, and Cats, as well as renditions of Shakespeare.For When You Want Some Badass Cinema: Brown SugarSometimes you need to see some foxy ladies in tight pants kicking perps to the curb. And, for that, Brown Sugar offers Blaxploitation classics like Coffy (plus, send-ups of the horror genre like Blackenstein). But there are also more recent and — dare we say — more wholesome offerings too, like the Al Green concert Everything’s Gonna Be All Right and the family-friendly A Baby for Christmas.For Those Who Want Just The Facts: DocsvilleThere’s more to documentaries than Netflix’s latest true-crime obsession or brilliantly shot nature footage narrated by David Attenborough. This SVOD option is a warehouse of some thought-provoking visual storytelling from around the world that covers everything from Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work, a look at the legacy of the controversial yet influential comedian, to a nearly three-minute short on the privilege of having a toilet.For similar options, perhaps with more of a science bent, there’s CuriosityStream.For The Warm and Fuzzies: Hallmark Movies NowSometimes you may want a cup of hot chocolate and the chance to see perfectly lit people in winter wonderlands — even if it’s July. The Hallmark Movies Now option has an assortment of its holiday-themed classics as well as movies about weddings, beach-side flings, and other scenarios that result in emotionally charged embraces. There are television series and specials that include adaptation of biblical stories and classic novels.If HMN options feel too mainstream, there are also OTTs that specialize in Christian-themed programming like Pure Flix and Dove Channel (that would be a reference to the bird, not to shampoo and body wash).For Mainlining Martial Arts: Hi-YahDescribed as “the sound of mayhem, of flying fists and roundhouse kicks” on its website, this service — which is available for a fee as an add-on to Amazon and though Roku and other devices — is a warehouse of martial arts favorites. And that definition is a loose one. The service also has horror films, thrillers, period pieces, and more that also happen to showcase people who can destroy you while barely breaking a sweat.For Supporters of Public Broadcasting: PBS Video AppFrom Poldark and PBS NewsHour to Ken Burns documentaries and Call the Midwife, there s probably something educational and/or entertaining to find on PBS video app. Or just turn it on for some background music; there are also recordings of Great Performances and Austin City Limits shows.For Live Music Without Dealing with LiveNation: QelloConcerts are great ways to celebrate your favorite artists with peers who appreciate them as much as you do. They’re also loud, expensive and usually hassles to get to. For those who can’t (or won’t) handle all that grunt work, there’s Qello. This service lets you watch concerts and documentary footage on demand, be it Paul McCartney or Beyoncé. But its greatest asset might be that it helps cure a nostalgic hunger for artists whom we are no longer able to watch perform, such as Tom Petty or David Bowie.

The Role: Ma Rainey, the Mother of the Blues and leader of her band. The groundbreaking musician and LGBTQ icon was once dubbed the ugliest woman in show business, and with the aid of false teeth, horsehair wigs, elaborate gowns, and a fat suit, Oscar winner Viola Davis gave life to the woman whose voice would have hundreds queuing up for hours just hear her croon or catch a glimpse of her on stage. Davis embodied not just Rainey s presence on stage but also her steadfast determination not to allow anyone to diminish or dismiss her worth.The Odds: Currently, there isn t a clear frontrunner for Best Actress. Andra Day won the Golden Globe, Carey Mulligan took home the Critics Choice, and Frances McDormand won the BAFTA, but we are giving Viola Davis win at the SAG Awards the most weight and believe she will be our likely winner. This is fitting as her pedigree and previous Oscar nomination warrant it, and her only win was for a Supporting Role; she is more than overdue to win for a lead turn.Andra Day

There were, however, a few surprise winners — Zendaya’s trophy for Euphoria (complete with breathless, excited acceptance speech) especially — making the show a little more exciting than sure thing after sure thing winning.Actually, even the non-winners had memorable moments: Ramy Youssef posted a video of a hazmat-suited PA waving through his window after he lost his category to Eugene Levy, proving those Kia commercials weren t completely kidding; they really did bring Emmy trophies to the homes of nominees — in the Los Angeles area, at least.when you lose the emmy pic.twitter.com/ECkbGcoHBA ramy youssef (@ramy) September 21, 2020But the biggest moments of the show included historic wins, essential workers, and literal fire. Read up on all the winners here, and read on for the biggest moments from the 72nd Emmy Awards.1. FIRE!(Photo by ABC/Image Group LA)Award show openings are difficult in the best of circumstances, let alone when they re produced virtually from an empty basketball arena in the middle of a global pandemic. And while Kimmel s joke monologue started weird — why wasn t he acknowledging that all of the celebrity reaction shots were from old ceremonies? — once he finally did, and introduced all of the technological feats the producers were performing in order to bring this remotely produced live TV show to air, things went much smoother. Well, except for the first award presentation — after bringing out pal Jennifer Aniston to assist, the duo s Covid-precaution bit ended with Kimmel dousing the winner s envelope in Lysol and lighting it on fire. Aniston swiftly blasted a fire extinguisher on the mini inferno, but the kindling proved to be a little TOO good — she had to blast it an extra two times when the flames continued to burn. We could hear nervous stage direction coming from off camera.Related: 2020 Emmy Winners: Your Full List of Winners from the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards2. SCHITT S SWEEPThe rise of Schitt s Creek from niche cable network Canadian import to Netflix hit to Emmys sweep is one even the writers of the kindhearted, optimistic sitcom might not have scripted. But the series arc — culminating in a sweep of all seven major categories (series, all four main acting categories, writing, and directing) — is ultra satisfying for a show that championed acceptance and heart above all else. The closest other shows have come to achieving this feat is Taxi s five wins (out of six noms) in 1981, and All in the Family s six wins (out of seven) in 1972.With Catherine O Hara, Eugene Levy, Dan Levy and Annie Murphy winning their #Emmys tonight, that means our little Canadian show is the first comedy OR drama to ~ever~ sweep all four acting categories, and that is absolutely wild 🇨🇦 pic.twitter.com/fEUnaLoDBr Schitt s Creek (@SchittsCreek) September 21, 2020Catherine O Hara and Levy getting some richly deserved TV accolades was satisfying enough, but their TV children Annie Murphy and Dan Levy, too? Even better. Plus, the emotion shared between Eugene and Dan, co-creators and real-life father and son, was so genuine you could feel the love through the screen. In fact, the show s remote celebration in Canada was filled with joy, with every cast and crew member in attendance getting emotional as the show continued to take home awards.3. BLACK HOLLYWOOD MAKES HISTORYAnthony Anderson was at the Staples Center to perform a whole bit with Kimmel about how this year s Emmys in particular were the blackest yet — about 34 percent of this year s nominees were Black — and what a shame it was that he and his cohort were not able to celebrate together. Although Anderson didn t win himself, Regina King’s expected win (wearing a shirt that paid tribute to Breonna Taylor) kicked off a successful night for Watchmen (her costar Yahya Abdul-Mateen II took home a trophy, as did the show itself and its writing); Uzo Aduba beat several Hollywood heavy-hitters for Mrs. America while also in a Breonna Taylor shirt; and Disney star–turned–prestige cable ingenue Zendaya s Drama Actress win for Euphoria was perhaps the biggest upset of the night. Her win makes her the second Black actress in 72 years of Emmys history to win in that category, following Viola Davis.And let s not forget Oprah and Chris Rock introducing Tyler Perry, the recipient of this year s Governor s Award, who was present at the Staples Center to accept his trophy in person (and deliver a moving speech about perseverance and his grandmother s quilt).4. SPACE!The existence of award shows is essentially a way for Hollywood to pat themselves on the back, and there was plenty of that in this show. But the producers also managed to pay tribute to essential workers and people doing incredibly important jobs in this time, including doctors, nurses, teachers, mail carriers, UPS guys, and even astronauts. Commander Christopher Cassidy filmed a segment from the International Space Station, though Jeremy Irons was nowhere in sight.5. FRIENDS REUNION(Photo by ABC)Sorry, HBO Max — that long-awaited Friends reunion (pushed a couple times now due to Covid) will be overshadowed by Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow popping into a Zoom frame together for a bit about them living together and watching the Emmys. It was a cute moment, especially since the three women are clearly IRL friends and looked radiant as they hung out together. Jason Bateman, whose random appearances was a running gag in the show and who is known to hang out with the Friends gang, was there too.What were your favorite Emmys moments?
