Morning Brew – Thursday, June 30: Lesbian contestants lose “The Voice,” Jane Lynch snags a Teen Choice nomination

 
 

Good morning, Brewbies! Things didn’t go exactly as we’d hoped on last night’s inaugural season finale of The Voice: Neither lesbian contestant took home the crown. But it’s hard to feel too bummed out about it. Vicci Martinez and Beverly McClellan gained exposure like they’d never dreamed of, and support from every corner of America. I’m sure they’ll both release albums soon, and you can expect to see plenty of interviews and talk show appearances as they begin their post-show media blitz. Plus NBC is launching a live tour! Yes, we’ve only just begun to enjoy the musical stylings of these two ladies.

I don’t know about you, but I’m already in Pretty Little Liars withdrawals, and it’s only been two days since the last episode aired. Never fear, though! ABC Family has released a few sneak peeks from next week’s episode, “Blind Dates.”

Annabeth Gish, I was wondering when we would have the pleasure of looking upon your gorgeous face again!

StarryMag also has a little PLL teaser I think you might enjoy:

With her mother blaring to the world about her scholarship commitment, Emily is at the edge of spilling the truth behind the fake letter. But with some help from a surprisingly supportive Samara, maybe the situation isn’t as dire as Emily once thought.

Jane Lynch has been nominated for a Teen Choice Award. Sue Sylvester is up for Best Villain. Unfortunately she’s competing with Justin Bieber’s guest appearance on CSI. Four other Glee actors received noms, too. Both Dianna Agron and Amber Riley are up for Female Scene Stealer, while Chris Colfer and Mark Saling are up for Male Scene Stealer.

You can vote once a day for your favorites at the official website. The awards will air on FOX on Sunday, August 7th at 8 PM ET/PT.

Yesterday afternoon Karman Kregloe sent me a hilariously incredulous email about Fox’s forthcoming reality show, Mobbed. The premise of the show is: Do you have a secret you want to reveal to a loved one? Why not do it in a flash mob! The casting call Karman forwarded asked for “People who feel the time is right to come out of the closet to their loved ones.” No more awkward conversations over family dinners! No more de-dyke-oracting before your parents come over to take you and your “roomate” out to dinner. Announce your gayness with song and dance in a local mall!

We’ll all be looking forward to that episode, I’m sure.

For all my fawning over Pixar’s Brave, I completely forgot to post the teaser trailer that dropped over the weekend. Let me rectify that now.

Adweek is running down a list of the 50 gayest ads ever created, and it’s actually one of the more fascinating things I’ve read this week. They’ve broken down the ads into categories like, “Surprise! He/She is gay!” and “Don’t tell Mom!” I’m guessing, though, that your favorite will be “Lesbians are hot.” (You’ll be shocked to hear that most of those ads didn’t air in America.)

See you back here tomorrow morning, Brewbies. Same gay time. Same gay channel.
