What would you do if Rihanna pulled you on stage and gave you a lap dance? I'm sure you'd like to think that you'd be all cool about it. Maybe you'd turn and give a wink to the crowd. Or maybe you'd be really bold and give Rihanna's ass a slap a la Michael Cera (retaliatory slap be damned). But in reality, you'd probably do exactly what this guy did.

If you check out the list of 2014 Emmy Awards nominations, and look all the way down at the bottom of the list, you'll see a category with a confusing name: "Best Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment Program." What the heck does that even mean? Basically, a short-format program is anything that's not a full half-hour or hour-long show. As a result, you usually only see these nominees in the form of online videos that accompany full shows, as is the case with this year's "Parks & Recreation" nomination.

July 10, 2014 @ 12:14 pm PST     Andy Neuenschwander    
Overall, the list of nominations for this year's Emmy Awards is encouraging. Gone are most of the crappy network sitcoms (except for one) that gummed up the works and blocked the likes of "Louie" from getting nominated. However, no matter what, there will always be at least one big snub. This year, that snub is Tatiana Maslany of "Orphan Black." And it's a big one.
