The Oscars are a mess this year. First Kevin Hart was hosting, then he refused to apologize for past homophobic comments saying he's already addressed them (um, he hasn't), then Ellen Degeneres tried…to get the Oscars to let him host (which was its own mess), and then the Oscars said there would be no host.

We've come to love her as Susie Meyerson in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, but Borstein started out her acting career on MadTV. In 2018, she won two Emmys: one for her role as Susie, and the other for her role as Lois in… >> Read More
Andy Cohen, the funniest Jewish TV host in the game, recently announced he's going to be a dad! The host of Watch What Happens Live, 50, is expecting his first child via surrogate.
