SAG Awards: How High-Profile TV Ensembles Increase Individual Performer Category Competition
While this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards saw categories dominated by multiple performers from the same show, that trend was truly started at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The SAG Awards combine the lead and supporting performances into one acting category per gender per genre. “While we understand the desire for supporting categories in television, with a two-hour show, we just simply don’t have the on-air time for four additional supporting actor awards,” says Kathy Connell, executive producer of the SAG Awards. In order to recognize “that actors in television never work alone, we proudly created the concept of an ensemble category” separately,

How to Watch and Livestream Friday’s Impeachment Hearing

The House impeachment inquiry into President Donald J. Trump is being broadcast live this week, with two days of public hearings. The first day was on Wednesday, November 13, and the next will be Friday, November 15.

Investigators for the House of Representatives are looking into whether Trump abused his public office for private gain, specifically in his dealings with Ukraine. From attempting to pressure the Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky into investigating former Vice President Joe Biden for corruption and asking Zelensky to investigate the conspiracy theory that it was Ukraine than interfered in the 2016 election — on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s campaign — to White House officials concealing records of phone correspondence on July 25 between Trump and Zelensky, a number of government officials already testified about these impeachable offenses to Congress behind closed doors.

These witnesses have testified that Trump and his allies — including his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney,

Disney+ Is Missing the Michael Jackson Episode of ‘The Simpsons’

In its 30-plus season existence, “The Simpsons” has had hundred of celebrity cameos and guest stars, and with Disney+, fans can relive all of those era-specific animated appearances from the first 30 seasons. Well, all of those appearances except one, as the Season 3 premiere (“Stark Raving Dad”) featuring Michael Jackson is not actually available to stream on Disney+.

In the episode, Homer Simpson ends up in a mental institution and befriends Leon Kompowsky (voiced by Jackson), a man who claims to be Michael Jackson. While Jackson was never actually credited for the episode — due to contractual issues — the entire thing came to be in the first place because he was a fan of the show and called creator Matt Groening offering to do a guest spot.
