If there's one thing you need to remember about comedians, it's that despite the chuckles, belly laughs, and guffaws that they can inspire in other people, they tend to be kind of grumpy on their own. Just look at Ricky Gervais! He's been nominated for yet another Emmy (he's already won two), but all the guy can think about is the thank you that's owed to him from yet another comedian, who just so happens to also be an Emmy nominee.
The 2014 Emmy Nominations are in, and expectedly outraging everyone across the internet. It takes a 'True Detective' to figure out this 'American Horror Story,' but did the right nominations go to the right people? Will Tatiana Maslany ever get her due? Can dogs really write blogs? We weigh in on the upsets, upchucks and underdogs of today's TV snubs.
When 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon conscripted guest Ricky Gervais into playing a round of Word Sneak, which requires players to "sneak" offbeat words into everyday conversations without laughing so hard their guts bust, Gervais managed to quite effortlessly insert his first word without too much trouble. Things went downhill from there, quite frankly, and never really recovered.
Perhaps not as flashy as its Netflix counterparts like 'Orange is the New Black' or 'House of Cards,' Ricky Gervais' quiet dramedy 'Derek' earned a considerable amount of praise in its inaugural season, at least enough to merit a second season this May. Now, the first trailer for 'Derek' season 2 has hit, showcasing more than a few changes in store for the simple nursing home worker.
When the credits rolled at the end of 'The Muppets,' the titular felt heroes had made the comeback of a lifetime. Now we see that 'Muppets: Most Wanted' begins moments after the conclusion of the last film, with Kermit and the gang realizing that the cameras are still on them so they might as well go ahead and make a sequel. Then, in true Muppets fashion, everyone begins to sing about the fact that they're making a sequel.
You can't keep a good frog down. After writer/star Jason Segel left the 'Muppets' sequel to work on other projects, Kermit, Gonzo, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and the gang pressed ahead with 'Muppets Most Wanted' and brought some famous friends - namely Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and Ty Burrell - along with them. Today, you can get your first look at the trailer for the all new Muppet adventure.
We all appreciated, even loved, NBC's version of 'The Office,' the show that launched Steve Carell's career and a million "that's what she said" quips. But for some, there was never any replacing the original 'Office' or Ricky Gervais' David Brent, a character for whom saying the worst thing at the worst time was as natural as breathing. A lot of us miss Brent and would like to see him return ... and we might get a chance to on the big screen!
