Watch Baby Yoda vibe to the Schitt’s Creek and Curb themes in this Emmys music medley

Happy Emmys weekend!

On Sunday , in what we can only assume will be a deeply strange ceremony, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences will hand out their most high-profile awards of the year (though they’ve been doling out the Creative Arts Emmys all week; congrats to Emmy-winner Quibi , a phrase that will nestle comfortably against “Oscar-winner Suicide Squad” in our brains...

What shows will win, and which should win, at the 2020 Emmys

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards will still take place on Sunday, September 20, and we can once again count on Jimmy Kimmel to host. The rest feels more up in the air than usual, as the ceremony will be attended virtually by nominees and presenters. Here are A.V. Club TV editor Danette Chavez’s predictions of the winners of the major series awards, as well as some last-minute stumping for ...

Insecure’s Issa Rae on her character’s growth and bringing the show back to its roots

Insecure’s Issa Rae on her character’s growth and bringing the show back to its roots

This may not be Insecure’s first year in the Emmys spotlight, but 2020 is easily its biggest. With eight nominations total, an overdue Outstanding Comedy Series nod could not have come at a better time: As we noted in July, season four of the Issa Rae starrer rendered some of the most engaging television we’ve watched thus far, thanks, in large part, to a long-gestating friend break-up...

Insecure’s Natasha Rothwell on why Kelli “doesn't have any problems”

Insecure’s Natasha Rothwell on why Kelli “doesn't have any problems”

On Insecure, Natasha Rothwell wears numerous professional hats. When she isn’t in the writers’ room, the busy multi-hyphenate could be behind the camera, reviewing a scene as the supervising producer. Of course, there’s also the major possibility that Rothwell is living her best life in front of the camera as Issa (Issa Rae) and Molly’s (

Yvonne Orji ) outlandish buddy Kelli, where the...

Momma, What Happens When You Make It? Yvonne Orji on Her Comedy Special and Friendships After Success

Momma, What Happens When You Make It? Yvonne Orji on Her Comedy Special and Friendships After Success

Yvonne Orji is not Molly, y’all. She just plays her on TV (on HBO’s Insecure, in fact). But, there’s a part of her that can relate to Molly and Issa Dee’s devolving friendship.

Writer’s Note: There are spoilers from Insecure Ep. 409 included in this article.

With the super success of Insecure, her

podcast (with Luvvie Ajayi) and her upcoming book , Orji is on a roll. Now, after years of...

Prior to tonight’s episode, Issa Rae and a number of folks involved with Insecure hit social media with something like a disclaimer:

Of course, Insecure couldn’t account for the current state of the country when it filmed and wrote these episodes months ago. Some saw this as the show defending itself for airing tonight without directly...

Insecure’s Yvonne Orji on her biggest hope for Molly after a tough season

Insecure’s Yvonne Orji on her biggest hope for Molly after a tough season

Insecure’s seventh episode of the season, “

Lowkey Trippin’ ,” sent viewers on one of the tensest vacations we’ve seen in a while. Molly, played by Yvonne Orji, and Andrew’s [Alexander Hodge ] trip to Mexico should have been a thoroughly sexy, relationship-strengthening sojourn with sun and cocktails. Instead, an overzealous hotel employee treats Molly unfairly over a towel, which turns into...

Not long after Donald Trump declared war on the media, CNN’s picked up the gauntlet, firing back against the president once more in the new edition of The Hollywood Reporter. In the cover story, CNN president Jeff Zucker brags that he and his employees wear their status of enemy combatants against false information and corruption “as a badge of honor.” He detailed the network’s new arsenal in...

HBO’s always been one of the more permissive purveyors of premium cable, shrugging off the sharing of HBO Go passwords because hey, at least it means you’re watching. Now the cabler’s taking that indulgent attitude even further with an “advance premiere combo” that features early looks at Westworld, Divorce, and Insecure. So, subscribers (and their closest friends) can get a jump on their...

Despite clocking in very low on the network’s “decapitated heads” and “robot sex” metrics, Issa Rae’s comedy Insecure managed to be one of HBO’s 2016 success stories. Now, Issa, Molly, and Lawrence are on their way back to TV, with the network releasing a teaser for Insecure season 2.

As good as Justice League was this month, HBO Go and HBO Now are getting a couple of legitimately acclaimed films as part of their new streaming offerings in August: Darkest Hour and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Of course, the acclaim those movies received was also a bit controversial, with Gary Oldman winning the Best Actor Oscar largely on the strength of his Winston Churchill...
