Dear Gossips,

Billy Porter made history last night at the Emmys as the first openly gay black man to win Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his role in Pose. He now has the EGT: Emmy, Grammy, Tony. Three down, one to go. During his acceptance speech, he quoted James Baldwin:  “It took many years of vomiting up all the filth I’d been taught about myself, and half-believed, before I was able to walk on the earth as though I had a right to be here.  Read Full Intro

When we were lining up the coverage last night, near the end of the list, when we came to Zendaya, Duana asked me how ugly this was going to get, thinking that we’d fight over who got to write her, because we are both obsessed with this look. Duana was assuming that one of us would make Zendaya our Best…. Full Story

Once upon a time, after Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt broke up, and he started dating Jennifer Aniston, G infamously referred to Jen as “that TV girl”. G, of course, was film. She was blessed by Oscar, and back then, the Movies > TV hierarchy seemed indestructible – TV was where you started in order to get to the real prize: working in film. Full Story

To me, the question is always “what was it supposed to look like?” What was the style inspiration? Usually we don’t know for a few days until an exhausted stylist gives an interview (if the look went well) or not – but Emilia Clarke had a definite look in mind, and told everyone her inspiration up front (read the caption):           Full Story

Leave me alone about the title, I’m on no sleep. But also, the only other title that would be appropriate here is one you saw all over social media or your group chats last night: “PHOEBE WALLER-BRIDGE!!EEEEEEE!!!!”  Her sweep last night took us all so by surprise that it wasn’t until this morning that I fully processed the scope of what happened – with the exception of the Best Supporting categories, Fleabag swept the comedy Emmys completely: Best Writing, Best Direction, Best Lead Actress – and Best Comedy. Full Story

In my heart, I wanted it for Sandra Oh so bad. That said, season two of Killing Eve belonged to Jodie Comer’s Villanelle. And that’s what a partnership is on a show like this. Last season, it was all about Eve, and Sandra was the star, the lead, the one who was front and centre during the circuit. Full Story

You didn’t imagine it. Whenever ‘Schitt’s Creek’ was said aloud inside the Emmys theatre, the polite roll of applause would swell, in kind of a warm, but slightly raucous way that felt familiar, somehow…  Sometimes, when Mike and I are watching TV, I’ll get too excited and go on at length about some behind-the-scenes element I’ve gleaned, (I am a master at figuring out when actors have colds they’re trying to hide) and want him to praise my brilliance. Full Story

Regina King is the reigning Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner. When you win an Oscar, that’s how you are introduced wherever you go – Regina King, Oscar winner. She was at the Emmys last night, and she’s won a few Emmys, but even at the Emmys, the Oscar mention came first. The Emmys, then, is her victory lap kickoff. Full Story

I’m trying to spell out the sound I made, several times, during Michelle Williams’s acceptance speech last night at the Emmys for her performance in Fosse/Verdon. Like… “ooooffff”. Like someone’s hit you in the stomach. Like you’re exhaling while doubling over. Full Story
