Tuesday morning, Leslie Jones along with Laverne Cox, Josh Gad, Tatiana Maslany and television Academy chairman and CEO Frank Scherma announced the nominations for the 72nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

The award presentation (which will most likely be produced and given-out virtually due to COVID-19, although no final decision has been revealed) is set to air on Sunday night, September 20th live on ABC and will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, who will also serve as the shows executive producer along with Reginald Hudlin.

Netflix leads the nominations with 160 nods, followed by HBO with 107 nominations.

I am Shocked absolutely stunned that Tom Pelphrey was not nominated for Ozark he was the reason to watch season three! Indeed a head scratcher.

Really was hoping for Better Things to get nominated along with Pamela Adlon, though I do believe Better Things is in a category all it’s own.

You’re probably one of the very few mortals who watches Yellowstone. It’s a good show, but it got buried on that Paramount network that most of the cable companies moved into the high priced digital tiers, once the channel morphed over from “Spike TV”.

Now that the first two seasons are streaming on Peacock, I’m thinking they might find a new audience. If they put the third season on there soon, they might actually get some nominations next year. (No spoilers, I haven’t seen Season 3 yet myself, but I plan to remedy that situation within the next week or two)

WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres Address Toxic Workplace Issues & How She is a ‘Work in Progress’ in Talk Show Season Opener

Today marks the return of daytime’s Ellen DeGeneres Show for its 18th season in syndication.  Ahead of its airing, the show dropped the video of Ellen’s opening monologue where she addresses to the audience at home the allegations that came to light over the summer regarding her, and the toxic work environment behind the scenes of her popular series.

Those allegations prompted an internal investigation by WarnerMedia, which led to the dismissal of several key producers at the talk show.

Previously, Ellen shared that she would address what had happened during the new season, but she did so at the top of its first episode back, and repeated some of the same sentiments she also shared in a letter to her crew and staffers.

DeGeneres expressed  “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”  She was quick to point out that she is turning the page and that “today, we are starting a new chapter.”

Addressing what has been her off-screen behavior vs. her on-air persona, Ellen said: “The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things.  Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated. I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress… I don’t think I’m that good of an actress that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me, and my intention is to always be the best person I can be. And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I’m so sorry for that.”  Within the monologue she shares how she became known as the “Be Kind Lady” a moniker that also came back to bite her during the summer.

So, what do you think about what Ellen has to say at the top of the new season of her show? Do you think this is enough of an explanation to the public? Are you ready to watch her new season? Comment below.
