As Munn prepared to open the envelope, Nash said that she wanted to say the name if it was Sterling K. Brown (the only African-American nominee). It was him, and she excitedly screamed out his name. In addition to the LOLs around that moment, in general people complimented Nash’s appearance.

The recent episode of “Supernatural” on The CW (36,726 ERs) was both a return from its midseason break and a “backdoor pilot” for a proposed spinoff, “Wayward Sisters.” In a show that’s known for focusing mostly on men fighting monsters, this episode highlighted the female warriors — and one, Claire Novak (portrayed by Kathryn Newton), was the most-mentioned character of the night. Much of the conversation was positive, with people talking about her fighting skills, her look and her overall likeability.
