The show was hosted by James Corden, and although entertaining was politically charged. Celebrities like Kendrick Lamar, Camilla Cabello, Bono, Trevor Noah, Logic, and surprisingly, Hillary Clinton took on topics like DACA, gender equality, suicide, and of course Donald Trump. Kendrick Lamar opened the show with U2, performing his song XXX, in military-like clothing.

Camilla Cabello’s speaking up for Dreamers, immigrants who came to the U.S. as children but are in danger as adults of being deported. “I’m here on this stage tonight because, just like the Dreamers, my parents brought me to this country with nothing in their pockets but hope. They showed me what it means to work twice as hard and never give up. And, honestly, no part of my journey is any different from theirs. I’m a proud Cuban-Mexican immigrant, born in Eastern Havana, standing in front of you on the Grammys stage in New York City,” she said to applause from the crowd. “And all I know is, just like dreams, these kids can’t be forgotten and are worth fighting for.”

“Thank you so much. First off, to the other nominees in this category—LordeKendrick LamarJay-ZChildish Gambino—you are the reasons I’m in the studio pulling my hair out because I know you guys are only going to come with the top shelf artistry and music and thank you guys for blessing the world with your music. I mean that,” Bruno explained.

While he admitted to drinking and celebrating throughout the night, the “24K Magic” singer also wanted to share a story where he gave credit to the people who helped inspire such a special album.

“So I’m 15 years old and I’m opening up a show in Hawaii called the Magic of Polynesia….My job in that show was to entertain about 1,000 people, 1,000 tourists from all over the world. And I put together a set list like 10 to 12 songs and I will be honest, I was incredible at 15,” he joked. “And later on in life, I found out that those songs that I was singing were written by either Baby FaceJimmy Jam and Terry Lewis or Teddy Riley.”

In a Today interview shared Sunday, the star of this year’s The Lighthouse was asked about taking on the role in the upcoming 2021 Matt Reeves film. When host Willie Geist used the word “superhero” to describe the beloved DC character, Pattinson was quick to politely correct that characterization.

“Batman’s not a superhero,” he said, laughing. “It’s weird. I always balk at it. I’m like, it doesn’t count. You need to have, like, magical powers to be a superhero.”

Batman and Green Arrow

It is fair to say Batman is not “super” in the sense of having powers, however his training, skills, genius level intellect, and arsenal have made him a powerful rival and sometimes adversary of incredibly powerful superheroes like Superman and Wonder Woman. Saying Batman is not a superhero negates the nigh superhuman abilities of superheroes like Iron Man, Black Widow, Captain America, Green Arrow, Hawkeye, Nightwing, the Batman Family, and Green Hornet.

What do you all think? Do you consider The Dark Knight a superhero or no? Sound off in the comments section below!

Shelley Morrison, who played the beloved Rosario on Will & Grace, died Sunday morning at age 83, EW has confirmed. She was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for heart failure after a brief illness. AP first reported her passing.

Morrison starred as Rosario Salazar, Karen Walker’s (Megan Mullally) maid on the first run of Will & Grace. Hailing from El Salvador, Rosario (known as Rosie) had a contentious yet loving relationship with Karen. The popular character appeared in 68 episodes of the comedy but was not featured in the revival, with Morrison declining to return after retiring from acting.

“Shelley’s greatest pride as an actress was in playing the indomitable Rosario, in a comedy series that furthered the cause of social equity and fairness for LGBTQ people,” her publicist, Lori DeWaal, told EW. “She also took pride in portraying a strong, loving yet feisty Latina character. She believed that the best way to change hearts and minds was through comedy.”

“Rosario is one of my all-time favorite characters,” Morrison said recently, according to the AP. “She reminds me a lot of my own mother, who loved animals and children, but she would not suffer fools. It is very significant to me that we were able to show an older, Hispanic woman who is bright and smart and can hold her own.”

Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, and Megan Mulally who starred as Grace Adler, Will Truman, and Karen, respectively, on the show offered their condolences on social media Sunday.

Besides her work on Will & Grace, Shelley had a career that spanned decades. She appeared in many episodes of The Flying Nun as “Sister Sixto,” as well as The Rookies, LaredoCourthouse, and more. In the world of movies, she was featured in films like Three Guns for Texas, Funny Girl with Barbara Streisand, Troop Beverly Hills with Shelley Long, and the 1997 infamous romantic comedyFools Rush In, starring Salma Hayek and Matthew Perry.  Born Rachel Mitrani in New York City’s Bronx borough in 1936, Morrison’s first language was Spanish. She often portrayed Latina characters on screen but was featured in roles of various backgrounds.

We are really praying for her family, friends, and colleagues during this difficult time. Rest in peace Shelley, you were loved and will be missed.

“Other news organizations already started a deeper dive into the history of the show and Simon and NBC tying it into Matt Lauer, etc. The NBC News group has multiple lawsuits. Ronan Farrow and some other journalists have been reporting.”

As we previously reported, NBC sources exclusively told lovebscott.com that Gabrielle Union’s firing came as a result of her speaking up about ‘problematic’ situations.

NBC reached out to lovebscott.com in the wake of the initial allegations and provided the following statement on behalf of the network and Fremantle:

“America’s Got Talent has a long history of inclusivity and diversity in both our talent and the acts championed by the show. The judging and host line-up has been regularly refreshed over the years and that is one of the reasons for AGT’s enduring popularity. NBC and the producers take any issues on set seriously.”

When asked about the internal / external investigation, NBC declined to comment.

All we can say is this is a lot–a whole lot. We really hate that Gabrielle was fired from the show after speaking out about serious issues of racism and sexism. We would hope that somehow her job can be reinstated or she can make a move onto another NBC project. One way or another, with so many news organizations investigating this story the truth–the real truth–will come out! We will keep you posted as this story continues to develop.
