Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline Christie join STAR WARS: EPISODE VII


America’s latest sweetheart (and Oscar winner) Lupita N’yongo has officially joined the cast of JJ Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII. Joining N’yongo is one of my favorite cast members for HBO’s Game of Thrones, Gwendoline Christie, who seems like a stellar casting choice for the space saga. Let’s just hope this doesn’t affect her role on Game of Thrones, because SO HELP ME.

Star Wars: Episode VII hits theaters December 2015.

This is a very good year for Emmy noms. The only notable atrocity is Nick Offerman not getting a nom for Parks & Rec, AND the fact that Parks & Rec as a whole wasn’t nominated for Best Comedy. How can you nominate Amy and get noms for Best Writing and not get nominated for Best Comedy? TRAVESTY. I don’t get it. Like, it really doesn’t make any fucking sense. And since they didn’t get nominated, this only heightens my wish to see Amy get what she deserves this time around. 

AND AND AND, oh how could I forget?! Revenge! Totally snubbed. I mean, the fuck?! Though it may just look like a soapy rich people romp in the Hamptons, it’s incredibly well-written, directed, and acted. It was one of the best new shows of the entire season last year, and to see nothing, NOTHING and no one nominated really bums me out.
