Published

on

Expect Lil Nas X to bring the noise when the MTV Video Music Awards take place on Aug. 28. The “Industry Baby” rapper – who is not afraid to speak his mind when getting overlooked by other awards shows – joins Jack Harlow and Kendrick Lamar to lead the list of 2022 nominees. The nominations, unveiled today (July 26), see Jack and Nas X up for Video of the Year, while both will compete for Artist of the Year. Kendrick will actually compete against himself for Best Cinematography (“family ties,” “N95”). His “The Heart Part 5” is also up for Video For Good and Best Visual Effects.

Doja Cat and Harry Styles both picked up 6 nominations, while Billie Eilish, Drake, Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, and The Weeknd scored 5 each. This year’s nominations see 26 first-time nominees, with Baby Keem, Gayle, Måneskin, Kacey Musgraves, Tems, Wet Leg, Karol G, Dove Cameron, Becky G, and more all picking up nominations. Meanwhile, Madonna becomes the only artist to be nominated in each of the VMAs’ five decades, as she earned her 69th nomination (nice) for “MADAME X.”

The 2022 VMAs take place at the Prudential Center in New Jersey. This year’s ceremony, broadcasting at 8 pm ET/PT, will be simulcast on The CW, along with BET, BET Her, CMT, Comedy Central, Logo, MTV2, Nickelodeon, Paramount Network, Pop, TVLand, and VH1. 

 Fans can now vote for their favorites across 22 gender-neutral categories, including Video of the Year, Artist of the Year, Best Collaboration and two all-new categories — Best Longform Video and Best Metaverse Performance — by visiting vote.mtv.com until Friday, August 19, 2022.

Clarence Gilyard, ‘Die Hard’ and ‘Walker, Texas Ranger’ star, dead at 66 | CNN

Published

on



CNN
 — 

Clarence Gilyard, the actor best known for playing computer hacker Theo in “Die Hard” and naval flight officer Marcus “Sundown” Williams in “Top Gun,” has died at the age of 66.

His death was announced on Monday in a statement from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), where he had been working as an associate professor at the College of Fine Arts.

“It is with profound sadness that I share this news,” Dean Nancy Uscher said in the statement shared on Instagram. “His students were deeply inspired by him, as were all who knew him. He had many extraordinary talents and was extremely well-known in the university through his dedication to teaching and his professional accomplishments.”

UNLV film chair Heather Addison remembered Gilyard as a “beacon of light and strength for everyone around him at UNLV.”

She added: “Whenever we asked him how he was, he would cheerfully declare that he was ‘Blessed!’ But we are truly the ones who were blessed to be his colleagues and students for so many years. We love you and will miss you dearly, Professor G!”

No further details surrounding his death have been made public.

According to UNLV, Gilyard ventured into acting after studying Theatre Arts at California State University. He landed his first role on the TV show “Diff’rent Strokes” in 1981.

In 1986, Gilyard made his film debut in “Top Gun,” in which he played Sundown, one of the elite fighter pilots.

Two years later, he was cast as Theo, the computer expert who helps Hans Gruber’s terrorist group, in the thriller “Die Hard.”

He got his big primetime TV break in 1989, when he landed the role of Conrad McMasters on the NBC legal drama “Matlock,” starring opposite Andy Griffith. He then portrayed Chuck Norris’ crime-fighting partner Jimmy Trivette on “Walker, Texas Ranger.”

Gilyard’s acting credits also include “The Karate Kid Part II,” “CHiPS” and the “Left Behind” films.

Despite his accomplished acting career, Gilyard stepped away from acting in 2006 to start teaching at UNLV and directing productions at the university’s Nevada Conservatory Theatre.

“I’m wired to teach. And I’m a professional, but the profession has to feed the classroom. It’s what stimulates my characters because I’m in touch with people’s lives in the 21st century,” he told the Las Vegas Review-Journal in 2017.

“I work best as an artist when I’m in a fertile arena. That means creative and imaginative. Being with all those millennials — I don’t understand what they’re saying but I’m siphoning off their energy.”

He did, however, make a brief return to the screen in 2021, when he reunited with Bruce Willis and De’voreaux White for a “Die Hard” battery commercial.

‘That ’90s Show’ First Trailer: ‘That ’70s Show’ Vets Red & Kitty Return

Published

on

Kitty and Red Forman are up their usual antics in the epic first look at Netflix’s That ’90s Show, set 15 years after the events of That ’70s Show. Netflix revealed that the series will premiere January 19, 2023 when they dropped the teaser trailer that features Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith back as their beloved characters, who are now grandparents. Kitty and Red are hosting their granddaughter Leia (played by Callie Haverda) who is visiting Point Place. And of course, the iconic Forman basement makes an appearance!

The official longline for the new show reads, “It’s 1995 and Leia Forman is desperate for some adventure in her life or at least a best friend who isn’t her dad. When she arrives in Point Place to visit her grandparents, Red and Kitty, Leia finds what she’s looking for right next door when she meets the dynamic and rebellious Gwen. With the help of Gwen’s friends, including her lovable brother Nate, his smart, laser-focused girlfriend Nikki, the sarcastic and insightful Ozzie, and the charming Jay, Leia realizes adventure could happen there just like it did for her parents all those years ago. Excited to reinvent herself, she convinces her parents to let her stay for the summer. With a basement full of teens again, Kitty is happy the Forman house is now a home for a new generation and Red is, well…Red.”

That 90s Show

That ’70s Show aired from 1998 to 2006 and focused on a group of six teenagers living in Point Place, Wisconsin. Topher Grace, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Laura Prepon, and Wilmer Valderrama will all return in guest appearances in That ’90s Show. The new cast members include Ashley Aufderheide, Mace Coronel, Maxwell Alee Donovan, Reyn Doi, and Sam Morelos.

Mila Kunis, 39, previously spoke out against the storyline for That ’90s Show, where her character Jackie is with Kelso, played her real-life husband Ashton, instead of Wilmer’s character Fez.

“My husband and I are together in it, which is weird, because we shouldn’t have been,” she told Access Hollywood in September. “I called BS. I was like, ‘My character would be with Fez.’ I think that I ended up with Wilmer’s character. I was like, ‘Why are you and I together?’ ” Mila also said it was “super weird” to film the new show with her husband.
