The best moments of the 2020 'Pandemmys'

The virtual 2020 Emmys, or "Pandemmys" as we may or may not call them, took place Sunday night and proceeded with surprisingly few technical glitches and some generally pleasant surprises. We loved sneaking a peek at celebrity homes and makeshift Emmy parties, and seeing TV's top players in the same situation as those watching at home was oddly comforting...

Jennifer Aniston's Emmys party was a surprise mini 'Friends' reunion

They might not be in a magical rent-controlled apartment any more, and the HBO Max reunion might be on hold thanks to the pandeimc — but the lady Friends are all still up for the odd shenanigan. After heading home from helping host Jimmy Kimmel kick off the Emmys, nominee Jennifer Aniston did what all of us would do: got the heck out of her Spanx,...

First 'WandaVision' trailer is a strange trip through television history

The first official trailer for Disney+'s WandaVision arrived at the Emmy Awards on Sunday, and it clarified absolutely nothing about the intriguing new show. In the six-episode miniseries taking place after Avengers: Endgame, telekinetic superhero Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) and highly advanced android Vision (Paul Bettany) appear to be a happily married...

Ramy Youssef's Emmy loss tweet deserves its own award

The 2020 Emmy Awards are all virtual for safety reasons, but that didn't stop the Television Academy from sending interns to nominees' homes to deliver them a winning statuette at a moment's notice. That's a cute idea in theory, but what about the nominees who don't win? Luckily, we didn't have to wonder about their fate for longRamy creator Ramy Youssef...

Emmys take a note from baseball, opening with cardboard cutouts of nominees

An awkward opening monologue! Stunt jokes that don't land! An audience of beautiful people! Who said the Emmys were going to feel weird this year? Jimmy Kimmel opened the "virtual" 2020 Emmys with a less-than-tight five, noting earnestly that "the world may be terrible but TV has never been better." He also foreshadowed a huge night ahead for Schitt's...

Here are all the Emmys 2020 winners

The 2020 Emmy Awards proceeded as planned on Sunday — all virtual, but still celebrating the best in a fine year of television (an otherwise un-fine year in every other respect). Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel in Los Angeles, the Emmys honored a variety of TV shows including many first-time nominees and fan favorites like Schitt's Creek and The Mandalorian....

Famed NYC clock is now counting down to Earth's climate change 'deadline'

Anyone who has walked through New York City's Union Square and managed to look up has seen it: A large, multi-numeral digital clock embedded on the side of a sky scraper.  The public art project known as Metronome typically counts the hours, minutes, and seconds to and from midnight. But as of Saturday, it began telling a different sort of time. It...

How to watch the Emmys online, and what's different in the midst of our pandemic

The (awards) show apparently must go on.  Somehow, even during a global pandemic, the Emmys are happening on Sunday night. The awardsshow celebrating the best in television is scheduled to start at 8:00 p.m. ET.  But don't worry, it won't be violating any social distancing guidelines. The event, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will primarily be a virtual...

Twitter to investigate apparent racial bias in photo previews

The first look a Twitter user gets at a tweet might be an unintentionally racially biased one. Twitter said Sunday that it would investigate whether the neural network that selects which part of an image to show in a photo preview favors showing the faces of white people over Black people.  The trouble started over the weekend when Twitter users posted...

YouTube puts human content moderators back to work

The humans are tagging in. YouTube is re-assigning the work of content moderation to more actual humans, Neal Mohan, YouTube’s chief product officer, told the Financial Times. At the start of the pandemic, YouTube had to reduce the staff and workload of in-office human moderators. So rather relying on that 10,000-person workforce, the company gave...
