Think you're mad about this morning's Emmy Awards nominations? Not as mad as these folks! #CloneClub #Fannibals #EmmySnubs and other angry hashtags took over Twitter and it was glorious.
1. An excellent suggestion...
Someone needs to send in Tatiana Maslany’s episodes next year in an HBO folder.

2. The #Fannibals got cray.
@paste_tv Emmys deserve to be eaten then. Not sure how much better Hannibal needs to be to get noticed.

5. Actually, "stain on the apron" may be the greatest insult of all time.
Don't fret, #Fannibals! Awards don't determine the success of a show, the fans do. The Emmys are just a stain on the apron.

If you're wondering why your Twitter feed is blowing up with complaints about Tatiana Maslany getting Emmy-snubbed, watch Orphan Black.

9. Who says you can't get all your anger out in 140 characters or less?
@JarettSays The #Emmys have failed all audiences, tbh. #NoTatiana #NoEmily #NoGoodWife #NonSense

Actress Stacey Dash has criticised Kanye West for comparing paparazzi attention to sexual assault, insisting the rapper should spend time in jail to "know what rape is".
The Clueless star, who played West's girlfriend in the music video for his song All Falls Down, recently joined America's Fox News Network as a regular contributor, and the hip-hop star's controversial comments were discussed during her TV appearance on Tuesday (08Jul14).
West is said to have ranted about celebrity snappers during a gig in Britain over the weekend (04-06Jul14), with multiple concertgoers reporting that he compared facing the paparazzi on the streets to being "raped".
Dash waded into the debate over his comments, and slammed West for misunderstanding such a serious subject, saying, "For Kanye to say, 'rape,' maybe he needs to spend some time on (New York prison) Rikers Island... You know, go to Rikers for a little while. And then he'll know what rape is. I don't get celebrities not understanding that the paparazzi are doing their job."
Lindsay Lohan is "thrilled" to be heading back to work after landing her first stage role in London's West End. The Mean Girls actress was confirmed for the role of Karen in a new London production of David Mamet's Hollywood satire Speed-the-Plow on Thursday (26Jun14), marking her theatre debut.
Lohan has now taken to Twitter.com to share her joy at being given the opportunity to show off her acting chops on the stage.
She writes, "Thrilled to be a part of this production #liveyourdreams #nevergiveup."
The high-profile part is a huge boost for Lohan as she attempts to rebuild her acting career following a court-ordered rehab stint last year (14), but industry insiders suggest the play's director Lindsay Posner plans to hire a strong supporting cast to ensure the show can go ahead if the star falls back into her old ways.
The role of Karen was originated by Madonna on Broadway in 1988. Lohan's run will start at the Playhouse Theatre on 24 September (14).
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has urged fellow celebrities to give up a boycott of the Dorchester Collection hotel chain as she fears staff will suffer during the protest. Kanye West's new wife has switched sides in the Hollywood-fuelled debate, in which stars have refused to stay in or visit the hotels since the owner - Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah - adopted a harsh Sharia Law penal code calling for homosexuality to be punishable by death in his home country.
Kardashian originally planned to host her bridal shower at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California earlier this year (14), but joined stars including Sharon Osbourne and Ellen DeGeneres in boycotting the venue and moved the pre-wedding party to the nearby Peninsula Hotel. However, in an entry posted on her blog on Monday (23Jun14), Kardashian now encourages her fans and fellow celebrities to call off the boycott.
She writes, "My best friend Allison and I wanted to take our babies out to lunch a few days ago... We were planning on taking them to the Beverly Hills Hotel, which is where we always go because they respect not having any paparazzi drive onto their property, but I reminded Allison that my bridal shower was moved from that hotel due to the actions of the Sultan of Brunei. "Allison shared with me her view on the situation and we 100 per cent agree that the actions and law enforcements of the Sultan are completely against everything we believe in." She continues, "However, I started to realise that maybe boycotting the hotel isn't the best solution either. For a sultan that has 20 billion dollars, this loss of business doesn't even make a dent in his fortunes. But the hotel staff are being negatively affected every day with the boycott that has gone on for weeks now... "We shouldn't punish the amazing hard-working people who have been so good to us for years!... "There must be other ways to express our views without punishing the workers, some who I know personally have families at home and depend on the city's business and tips to survive... "The unjust treatment and violation of rights of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community around the world is never justified and I will continue to proudly support the LGBT community in every way imaginable. I do believe though that instead of this boycott, there has to be another solution. "I hope we can come together and stand up for our beliefs while still making sure good people aren't wrongfully hurt in the process. Boycotting the hotel won't affect the sultan, just our dear friends who work there."
A representative for supermodel Gisele Bundchen has dismissed rumours the Brazilian beauty pulled out of a planned appearance at a conference in Cannes, France at the last minute. Reports suggested the catwalk star quit a panel event, titled A Conversation with Gisele Bundchen, at the Cannes Lion International Festival of Creativity and jetted back to the U.S. to deal with family commitments.
Actor Rob Lowe was said to have been drafted in to replace the model in the line-up after she pulled out.
However, a representative for Bundchen has now insisted the beauty was never confirmed to appear at the event, telling the New York Post's Page Six column, "Gisele is working in New York. I'm thinking that they (festival organisers) probably printed materials prior to getting a go-ahead from us and never took anything down. I've never, never confirmed this opportunity."
Other stars to make appearances at the annual marketing conference included Kanye West, Courtney Love, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jared Leto and Mariah Carey.
Proving that there’s nothing Hollywood won’t reboot if given then chance, a new Scooby Doo movie is reportedly in the works at Warner Bros. According to Variety, the studio is looking to send Scooby, Shaggy, and the gang on another spooky adventure, which will be written by Randall Green. The news comes just a year after Warner Bros. also announced plans for an animated Scooby Doo movie, which is reportedly still on track. Though the last live-action Mystery Gang outings, 2002’s Scooby Doo and its sequel Monsters Unleashed, did well commercially, they weren’t received well by critics and fans of the series, which is why it’s surprising that Warner Bros. would be so intent at taking a third shot at big-screen adventure. After all, the live-action Scooby Doo’s were only slightly better than Yogi Bear. There are plenty of other great classic Hanna-Barbera properties that would make for great films, so why does Scooby get a third shot at big screen success? Think about all of the possibilities that are open…

You're welcome, Hollywood.
Sir Elton John paid tribute to late U.S. radio and TV star Casey Kasem as he closed the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival on Sunday night (15Jun14). The Rocket Man legend brought the curtain down on the rural Tennessee music event by performing on the final night of the 2014 gathering.
The show marked the star's U.S. festival debut and he told the crowd, "This is my first ever festival in America and I know it's the best one." During his career-spanning set, he took a moment to remember Kasem, who died early on Sunday.
Elton John credited the TV and radio star with partly inspiring his music career as he often listened to Kasem's American Top 40 radio countdown in the 1970s. He said of his hero, "Travel safely, my good man," before performing hit track Don't Let The Sun Go Down on Me.
The music superstar also welcomed special guest Ben Folds to the stage for a duet of Grey Seal, before his set ended with a fireworks display. Other acts to play at the festival over the weekend (13-15Jun14) included Kanye West, Lauryn Hill, Frank Ocean, Jack White and Skrillex.
Rapper Kanye West lashed out at the media on Friday night (13Jun14) as he returned to Tennessee's Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, six years after he was booed on the same stage. The Stronger hitmaker came under fire in 2008 when he appeared six hours late for his headlining set at the Manchester, Tennessee event, prompting fans to boo him throughout the disastrous show.
He blamed the delay on rockers Pearl Jam for playing an extended set and eating into his stage set-up time prior to his performance, and it appears West has yet to let the incident go after making reference to the six-year-old event during his gig on Friday.
He also accused the media of inaccurately reporting the reasons for his late show, repeatedly shouting, "Where the press at (sic)? F**k the press."
The hip-hop star went on to rant and declared himself the biggest rock star on the planet as he thanked fans for their support, saying, "I want y'all (you all) to know that anytime I'm in the studio, make a record, make a T-shirt, I give it everything I got. And when I talk that s**t, it's so you can talk that s**t. If you're a fan of me, you're a fan of your motherf**king self. You can go out and do anything... I am the number one motherf**king rock star on the planet, at Bonnaroo!"
Kim Kardashian currently holds the record for the most "liked" Instagram photo of all time. That picture of her sharing her first kiss with new husband Kanye West sent the internet into a frenzy, but this new photo is a winner too. After weeks and weeks of specualtion, Kim finally revealed this photo of baby North West in her Givenchy dress at the wedding:
The blushing bride captioned the photo with, "My everything."
Right now the photo has over 1.3 million "likes." The famous wedding photo has 2.8 million, so there's quite a ways to go. But those super-mushy baby cheeks deserve all the "likes" in the world. Seriously. All of them.

Rock legend Brian May has been honoured with an award for his efforts to protect British wildlife. The Queen guitarist has been handed the 2014 Observer Ethical Award for Campaigner of the Year after leading the campaign against Britain's badger cull, which was scrapped earlier this year (14) when test schemes in south-west England proved ineffective in slowing the spread of bovine tuberculosis.
Speaking about the campaign, for which May recorded the song Save The Badger Badger Badger, the rocker tells Britain's Guardian newspaper, "You wake up every morning and you're at war with people who want to have the right to just treat animals any way they want. That's been tough for me. I'm a peaceful person, you know, I've been a musician all my life. But I've got used to it. You're constantly ready to go into battle."
May took to his Twitter.com page on Thursday (12Jun14) to express his gratitude for the award, writing, "Thanks to The Observer and all who supported us... Bri."
