  • PETER MACNICOL LOSES HIS 'VEEP' EMMY NOMINATION TO 'GIRLS' ACTOR

    Peter MacNicol is no longer nominated for a primetime Emmy this year. The former Ghostbusters 2 actor was nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his role on Veep but it has been decided that the nomination violated the category rules.

    The TV Academy stipulates that guest actors must have only appeared in less than half of the season's episodes to be considered for the category but Peter appeared in five of the 10 episodes that made up the show's fifth season. They said in a statement, "Upon review of the Guest Actor in a Comedy Series category, the Television Academy has determined that Peter MacNicol unfortunately exceeds the number of episodes permissible for inclusion in that category. HBO's guest actor entry for Peter MacNicol was accurate at the time of the submission deadline, but he was subsequently included in an additional Veep episode. Unfortunately, that additional appearance places him in 50% of the season's episodes and makes him no longer eligible to compete in the guest actor category. This decision is in no way a diminishment of Mr. MacNicol's stellar performance on this season of Veep."

    • The Academy announced on Thursday (July 21st) that Peter Scolari earned a belated nomination for his work on Girls to fill the void.
    • HBO reacted to the news saying, "At the time of the May 2nd entry deadline, the late-airing episodes of Veep and, therefore, their credits, did not yet exist. The information we received from the production was that Peter MacNicol was 'eligible as a guest star' because he would appear in only four episodes."
    • The issue was first reported by GoldDerby.com after being discovered on Peter M's IMDB page.
    • MacNicol won an Emmy in 2001 for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Ally MacBeal.
    • He has not addressed the situation on his social media.

  • SUBSTITUTE TEACHER SUSPENDED FOR USING LONELY ISLAND IN LESSON

    Saturday Night Live digital shorts are apparently frowned upon in the classroom. According to Pitchfork, a substitute teacher in Vancouver named Cory Rae Steeves was suspended for five days after showing the Lonely Island's "I'm on a Boat" music video to his class.

    The video was part of a lesson about satire being taught to his 10th grade students. Mr. Steeves apparently warned his students that the video might be viewed as offensive and one student opted to leave the room.

    • The lesson also included Duck Sauce's music video for "Big Bad Wolf."
    • He was also asked to complete a course called "Reinforcing Respectful Professional Boundaries."
    • The incident happened back in December but the disciplinary consent resolution made the rounds online on Thursday (July 21st.)

  • IDRIS ELBA THINKS HE'S TOO OLD TO BE BOND

    The competition to snag Daniel Craig's Bond role may have just gotten smaller. Idris Elba appeared on Good Morning America on Thursday (July 21st) to promote his role in Star Trek Beyond where he was also asked about the rumors that he is in the running for the 007 gig.

    The 43-year-old said, "It's the wildest rumor in the world. I keep saying if it was to happen, it would be the will of a nation, because there's not been no talks with me and the studios about any of that that. But everywhere I go, people want that to happen. But if I'm really honest, man, I think I'm too old for that. I can't be running around in cars, with ladies and martinis. Who wants to do that?"

    • He also told E! News earlier this week, "I mean, look, I've said it a million of times: It's a great character and it's an honor to be asked, but it is just a rumor."
    • Spectre and Skyfall director Sam Mendes discussed all of the casting rumors with The Telegraph back in May saying, "It's not a democracy. It's not The X Factor, it's not the EU referendum, it's not a public vote. Barbara Broccoli chooses who's going to be the next Bond: end of story. I can guarantee whatever happens with it, it will not be what you expect. That's what she's been brilliant at, and that's how it'll survive. Public support for Daniel was zero. It was her saying 'that man over there is going to change the whole thing, I'm going to cast him.'"

  • HAYDEN PANETTIERE IS IN A LEGAL BATTLE WITH HER DOG SITTER

    Hayden Panettiere is dealing with some doggy drama. According to TMZ, the Nashville actress have been locked in a legal battle with a former dog sitter named Tia Brooks who is suing her for over $8,500 of unpaid services.

    Hayden's lawyer, Marty Singer, has responded to the lawsuit claiming that Tia was hired to care for two rescue dogs, Zander and Xena, until Hayden found a permanent home for them but ended up giving them away on Craigslist last month. Tia and Hayden agreed on a rate of $30 per day which Tia apparently continued to charge even after the dogs were gone.

    • Hayden is being charged a total of $119,335.88 for six years of care as well as various other fees including vet bills, tick control, and other extras.
