Emmys 2020: ‘Watchmen’ awarded four Emmys as winners talk politics, race, history

The focus of the Emmy Awards stayed mostly on the nominated shows and creators, but given the significant issues of 2020 it wasn’t surprising when politics came up in speeches on Sunday. “Watchmen,” which blended a superhero tale with the history of the real-life Tulsa Massacre — a 1921 incident in which a White mob attacked and burned an Oklahoma City neighborhood known as Black Wall Street, killing dozens and injuring hundreds — won four Emmys including outstanding limited series or movie. “I ...

Emmys 2020: First responders get the spotlight as Emmy presenters on Sunday

Awards shows typically amp up the glitz on stage with big names as presenters, and in another year, that surely would have been the case for the Emmys on Sunday. And sure, Tracee Ellis Ross, Jennifer Aniston, Sterling K Brown, Zendaya, Jason Sudeikis and more were on hand to help. But with the show turned upside down by the coronavirus pandemic, the show enlisted first responders, who’ve worked throughout the pandemic often at great risk to their own health, as presenters in different categories...

Emmy Awards 2020: Photos from the coronavirus-affected at-home event

The 72nd annual Primetime Emmy Awards happened in Los Angeles on Sunday, Sept. 20, with Jimmy Kimmel as the host at Staples Center. It was the first of the major awards shows to happen during the coronavirus pandemic. While Kimmel was at Staples Center, nominees joined the telecast online via webcam. There wasn’t a red carpet this year, but those stars who did show up to present were administered a drive-up coronavirus test. In this video grab captured on Sept. 20, 2020, courtesy of the Acad...

Bryson DeChambeau refuses to leave the Open to question

This time, Winged Foot’s 72nd hole was not the scene of an accident. In Bryson DeChambeau’s world, there is no room for one. The most interesting player in golf put the U.S. Open to sleep on Sunday, which was exactly his intention. He pulled away from Matthew Wolff, put together the only under-par round of the day, became the only man to finish under-par for the event, and won his first major championship by six strokes. The absent fans missed nothing but overpriced beer. DeChambeau’s evangelica...

Emmys 2020: ‘Schitt’s Creek’ wins first seven Emmy awards of the night

During his opening monologue of the 2020 Emmys, Jimmy Kimmel joked that the ABC censors ordered that the name of multiple nominee “Schitt’s Creek” be flashed on screen every time the show was mentioned. Just, you know, so no one at home got the wrong idea about what word was being said. “HBO can show us a big blue penis, no problem,” Kimmel joked in reference to a scene in the nominated series “Watchmen.” I can’t say the word ‘Schitt’s Creek’ with a ‘c’.” It’s a good thing the censors didn’t rea...

Emmys 2020: Jimmy Kimmel delivers monologue to cardboard cutouts, and Jason Bateman

Jimmy Kimmel walked on stage to open the 2020 Emmys at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday and the celebrities that packed the arena burst into raucous cheers and applause. “Welcome to the Pand-Emmys!” Kimmel said. “Wow, it’s great to finally see people again.” Of course, almost no one was there with Kimmel. The people were being seen were clips from previous years, and then it was revealed that the audience was mainly cardboard cutouts. And Jason Bateman — but more on him later. The 2020 Em...

Watch: Where are California’s coronavirus case rates dropping, and how far?

California’s new daily COVID-19 cases have been decreasing steadily since mid-August, as a second round of lockdowns was imposed to combat the spike in cases we saw mid-summer. The hot spots have also been shifting, and this map shows you how. To see where the virus is spreading, we calculate the rate of new cases in each county, the number of cases reported in the previous 14 days per 10,000 residents, then track that data over time. The animated map shows how — and when — the coronavirus spr...

How Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death could reshape the presidential campaign

By STEVE PEOPLES | Associated Press NEW YORK — A presidential campaign that was already tugging at the nation’s most searing divides has been jolted by the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, potentially reshaping the election at a moment when some Americans were beginning to cast ballots. For months, the contest has largely centered on President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus, the biggest public health crisis in a century that has badly damaged his prospects for reel...

By JONATHAN LEMIRE, LISA MASCARO and STEVE PEOPLES | Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Saturday promised to put forth a female nominee in the coming week to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, pushing the Republican-controlled Senate to consider the pick without delay.

Trump backs proposed deal to keep TikTok operating in US

By STAN CHOE | AP Business Writer NEW YORK — President Donald Trump said Saturday he’s given his “blessing” to a proposed deal that would see the popular video-sharing app TikTok partner with Oracle and Walmart to become a US company. Trump has targeted Chinese-owned TikTok for national security and data privacy concerns. The announcement comes just a day after the Commerce Department announced restrictions that if put in place could eventually make it nearly impossible for TikTok fans to use th...

Whicker: Lakers, unlike the Clippers, don’t ask you to wait until next year

Five days later, his parting words still scrape on the eardrum. Did Paul George really say that the Clippers’ 2019-20 season wasn’t a matter of “championship or bust?” Technically, he is correct. There is no record of either George or Kawhi Leonard promising that the Clippers would be this year’s champions. Practically, it is one of the all-time cop-outs, since it came a few minutes after Leonard and George combined to miss 28 of 38 shots at the end of the Clippers’ listless Game 7 farewell. The...

Entertainment industry treading water after 6 months of coronavirus restrictions

Entertainment happens in gathering places, which is what officials are trying to discourage to combat the novel coronavirus. When the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in March, few people could have imagined a world without places to go for entertainment: no amusement parks, no multiplexes for movies, no theaters or festival grounds for concerts, no casinos. But not only did all those venues close, most haven’t reopened. And as we head into fall, no one knows when they will come back. They are part o...

Pandemic timeline in Southern California: Here’s how it all happened

“Coronavirus”: The first time that word appeared on this publication’s website in relation to the mysterious new disease emerging in China was Jan. 17, in a story about LAX being one of three U.S. airports to begin screening passengers. A week later, Los Angeles and Orange counties had their first confirmed cases. The virus spread throughout February and began killing Californians, though we didn’t realize it until later.

CSU universities expected to choose a new chancellor next week

LONG BEACH >> The California State University community will learn next week who will be taking over as the system’s new chancellor. Current Chancellor Timothy White announced last October that he would be retiring, effective in July 2020. He put those plans on hold in March as the coronavirus pandemic took hold, forcing the 23-campus system into a virtual learning environment that will continue through the spring. The search process for his replacement was also put on temporary hold, but CSU Bo...

What pandemic rebound? Only 27% of Southern California’s lost jobs replaced

Despite adding 30,600 workers in August, Southern California’s economy struggles to rebound, recovering just 27% of the jobs lost in the pandemic lockdown.

Senior Living: We put off planning, until a medical crisis took us by surprise

Earlier this month, my husband picked up the phone and learned his 92-year-old father had been taken to the hospital that morning, feeling sick and short of breath.
