Chrissy Teigen's Dad Doesn't Care About John Legend's Noms
Chrissy Teigen shared her excitement for her hubby's nom on Twitter, writing, "13 nominations for 'Jesus Christ Superstar' this morning! John got two Emmy nominations! If he wins, he will complete his EGOT and my Spike TV award will probably be moved. But it's ok. I AM SO PROUD!"
She also tweeted, "MORE IMPORTANTLY (because it's me), 'LIP SYNC BATTLE' WAS ALSO NOMINATED! I cant find the microphone, so that is a hammer, plug and bolt." The aforementioned emojis were included in her tweet.
And then, Chrissy posted the best tweet of all -- a screenshot of a text conversation she had with her dad, who either didn't care about John's nominations or was simply a man on a very important mission.

Samantha Bee 'Only Got Yelled at by the President Once'
Samantha Bee came under fire earlier this year when she referred to Ivanka Trump as a "feckless c--t" on an episode of "Full Frontal." Despite the controversial comment, she received a nomination for Outstanding Variety Talk Show.
"It's been an interesting year for the show, to say the least, and none of it would have been possible without each person on my staff and each suit at TBS (it's OK to say that -- they're very nice suits)," she said in a statement. "TBS bravely put a woman over 45 on TV, and in turn, I only got yelled at by the president once. We have some seriously special people on our staff, and hearing them go crazy in the office right now is just the medicine this world needs."
