What’s an award show without a good ol’ fashioned stage storm?
If you tuned in for the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards, you were probably pleasantly surprised to see actor Lakeith Stanfield accept the award on behalf of HBO’s Silicon Valley. The only problem is … Stanfield is not on the show. Yikes.
After the popular series was announced as the big winner in the Best Comedy Series category, the audience happily gave a round of applause before Keith, star of FX’s Atlanta, all of a sudden jumped on stage for a fantastic thank you speech.
“I want to thank everybody for honoring us in this way,” the actor said. “We worked very hard on Silicon Valley and here are we. Thank you.”
The good news is, folks in the room seemed to be light-hearted about the bizarre and seemingly stolen moment. . “I have no idea who that was,” executive producer Tom Lassally said before tackling the rest of his acceptance speech.
Quite possibly, Keith’s onstage antics were due to Atlanta’s loss to the HBO series, which also beat out Black-ish, Fleabag, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Modern Family and Veep.
The actor took to Twitter following the show to simply remind his fans that he is “not crazy.” But we will let you be the judge of that.
Atlanta star Donald Glover did, however, take home the award for Best Actor in a Comedy for his hit show Atlanta. “It’s just great to work with people … no egos, there are no divas. I just really want to thank all the great television and the people who are making really great stuff right now.”
Glover’s co-star Brian Tyree Henry revealed to HipHollywood while on the blue carpet that he’s “really glad that he picked this crazy crowd of kids to come and tell this story. It’s been the best ride.”
Prenup For What? The Real Reason Prince Harry Doesn’t Need Meghan Markle To Sign On The Dotted Line
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are keeping the fairytale alive by forgoing a prenup … but this might not be as romantic as it sounds.
According to a source, Harry believes his marriage to Meghan will last forever and there’s no reason to safeguard his £30 million fortune. “There was never any question in Harry’s mind that he would sign a prenup,” one of his “friends” told DailyMail. “He’s determined that his marriage will be a lasting one, so there’s no need for him to sign anything.”
Awww, that’s beautiful … but the gag is, even if Markle signed a prenup it wouldn’t mean much. Unfortunately, prenups are not legally enforceable in the UK. However, they are increasingly taken into account during divorce cases, so at least there’s that.
Also, Prince Harry isn’t the first to take this route. His big brother Prince William made the same move when he married Kate Middleton. In addition, their mother, Princess Diana, didn’t have a prenup either. Consequently, she had to fight tooth and nail to get her £17 million settlement when she divorced Prince Charles.
Hopefully, the royal couple’s union will be one that last a lifetime. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to wed on May 19th at Windsor Castle in England.
