Sean Spicer Crashes Emmys, Inspires Harsh Backlash

Stephen Colbert opened the 2017 Emmy Awards with a musical number, prior to welcoming the audience to the annual celebration of television and then calling out…

… Sean Spicer?!?

Yes, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

The ex-Donald Trump lackey has grown into somewhat of a minor celebrity party due to the many lies he told from the administration podium and partly due to Melissa McCarthy's popular impression of him on Saturday Night Live.

He appeared in this case after Colbert lamented how difficult it is to gauge these days just how many people watch a show.

“Sean,” he called out, “do you know?”

Enter Spicer and his podium.

“This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period, both in person and around the world!” Spicer announced, over hoots and hollers of the Emmy attendees.

This, of course, was a reference to Spicer’s own statement about PresidentTrump’s inaugural crowd size during his first White House press briefing in January.

Photos depicted a sparse gathering, but the Commander-in-Chief insisted otherwise.

“This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration — period — both in person and around the globe," said Spicer at the time.

Was this cameo unexpected? Yes.

Was it funny? To some.

Was it controversial? Heck yes.

Spicer was simply doing a job as Press Secretary, taking orders from his boss like so many others around the world.

But he also flat out lied to the American people and misled residents on issues of national importance… over and over and over again.

So now he just gets to enjoy the life of celebrity and even mock the type of manipulative, deceptive, shady, secretive administration that he played a major role in creating?

Many on the Internet were NOT having that…

Do you agree with these critiques?

Does Spicer deserve a second chance? Was he never especially guilty of anything in the first place, so there's no need for any kind of second chance?

Are critics overreacting? Or was this an example of egregious impropriety on the part of Emmy producers?

Watch the segment and then decide for yourself:

Emma Watson Wins Gender-Neutral Award, Inspires a Nation

Emma Watson took home the first-ever gender-neutral award for Best Actor in Film and TV for her performance in Beauty and the Beast at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Sunday evening.

Indeed, the former Harry Potter star was selected as the winner in a field that included both men and woman, walking up on stage to accept a bucket of golden popcorn before delving into a moving and inspiring speech.

"The first acting award in history that doesn't separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience," Watson told an adoring crowd.

She continued:

"MTV's move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone.

"But to me it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else's shoes and that doesn't need to be separated into two different categories."

It was a big night overall for Beauty and the Best, which took home the prize for Best Movie.

During her lauded speech, the 27-year old British also gave Billions actor Asia Kate Dillon a shout-out while, thanking her for educating her in an “inclusive and loving" way.

Watson went on to say it’s Belle who is the true winner in all of this.

"I think I'm being given this award because of who Belle is and what she represents," Watson concluded.

"The villagers in our fairytale wanted to make Belle believe the world was smaller than the way that she saw it, with fewer opportunities for her … I love playing someone who didn't listen to any of that."

Does it get any better than Emma Watson?!?

Seriously.

Watch her full speech and prepare for ALL the feels now:

Prince Harry Visits Terminally Ill Children, Inspires Your Daily Cry

Prince Harry has been making a lot of news lately for his adorable relationship with Meghan Markle, and while that’s wonderful and all, we mustn’t forget that in addition to his love life, he’s also a truly great person.

Really, just the best.

He’s always taken his royal duties seriously, and he also always been great with children and animals and veterans and … well, everyone and everything.

But earlier this week, Harry took some time to visit with a couple of terminally ill children, two siblings that are suffering from Batten disease.

And it’s just the sweetest, most heartbreaking thing we’ve seen in a very long time.

Batten disease is a rare genetic disorder that affects the nervous system. People who suffer from the disease deal with seizures, problems with vision and motor function, as well as personality changes.

Eventually the disease causes patients to lose the ability to walk and talk, and eventually to breathe. It most commonly affects children, and most of those affected don’t live past the age of 12.

It sounds like a horrible, horrible disease, and six-year-old Ollie suffers from it, along with his little sister, Amelia.

But thankfully, Harry was able to bond with the two children, and it sounds like his visit meant a lot to them.

On Ollie’s Facebook page, his parents explained that last October, the little boy won The Most Inspirational Child award at the Wellchild Awards, and while he was there, he met Harry.

“What happened that day was truly magical,” they wrote, “Ollie used all of his strength to stand on two feet to give Prince Harry a huge hug.”

“We truly believe in that moment a bond was made between Ollie and Prince Harry.”

Shortly after the awards ceremony, Ollie and Amelia were approved to try a new experimental treatment for the disease, and they wrote a letter to Harry about it.

They also thanked him “for giving our son the strength to stand when we thought this was no longer possible.”

On Tuesday, the children were at a hospital getting that treatment when Harry stopped by for a visit.

Their parents wrote that “For an hour Prince Harry sat with us talking and playing with our children, laughing and making memories, The very thing our children want the most in life, to be happy and having fun.”

“We feel so much pride knowing that Ollie and Amelia are touching the lives of the people they meet, with their love and strength.”

“The love, the support and the laughter within that treatment room on Tuesday will stay with us forever.”

“From the bottom of our hearts,” they continued, “we thank Prince Harry for his support, his time and his kindness towards our family and our journey with Batten Disease.”

“It was truly incredible to watch him with our children and to have the opportunity to talk with him about our journey with Battens.”

Since the family shared their story and their precious photos, so many people have been moved by it all.

Many of them have compared Harry to his mother, the late Princess Diana, and it’s easy to see why.

That Meghan Markle sure did land herself a catch, didn’t she?
