Samuel L. Jackson is another level of movie star.

He's spoken some of the most quoted lines in cinema history, he's effortlessly crossed genres, and he's the second biggest box office earner of all time (behind only Harrison Ford).

So the Pulp Fiction/Do The Right Thing/Avengers star getting the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2016 BET Awards was a no-brainer.

Perpare to get inspired by Jackson's incredible acceptance speech!

Andy Cohen Just Created His Very Own Awards Show — See The Nominees For Cutest Couple, Queen Of Shade, & MORE At The 2016 Bravos!

This is the most random news we've ever heard… and we completely love it!

Andy Cohen has successfully crafted his very own media empire, but his fellow TV peers seem to overlook most of his Bravo shows when it comes to awards season.

Luckily, the Watch What Happens Live! star can basically do whatever he wants, which includes creating and hosting his own awards show called The Bravos to honor his on-camera employees' hard work!

In typical Bravo fashion, these aren't your regular ol' categories either — The Sorry Not Sorry Award, Susan Lucci Award for Best Performance in a Reality Show, and Jumpsuit Achievement are just three of the coveted .

Plus, our faves like Jerry O'Connell, Chrissy Teigen, Khloé Kardashian, Carole Radziwill, and Ariana Madix are all nominated, so you know we'll be tuning in on July 20!

Although.. they're certainly no Perezies. LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out all 12 categories for the first annual Bravos (below)!!!

DJ Dillon Francis Goes On Epic Rant After Learning His First Platinum Record Has A Typo! Watch!

| Filed under: Music MinuteWacky, Tacky & TrueAwardzCrazzzzy

Dillon Francis' mood changed SO quickly!

Dillon. Francis. Is. Pissed.

On Wednesday, the DJ took to social media to celebrate the arrival of his brand new gold and platinum records for his cool collab with DJ Snake, Get Low!

Related: We LOVE This Song By Dillon!

The 28-year-old was so happy showing off his first-ever platinum plaque, but his mood quickly soured when a follower noticed a typo on the RIAA honor.

The electronic artist revealed that the engraving misspelled the word "certification," displayed instead "certificatoin."

Oof.

When the producer realized the mistake, he began to an NSFW rant about how the award for his hit from the Furious 7 soundtrack had been ruined.

We totally get why he was upset. This is a huge deal!

But, we can't quite tell if he's actually this livid, or if he's just joking to make light of the situation, but he posted the video to Facebook, captioning it:

As you surely know, Mr. Corden's show on CBS has become quite the viral sensation with its VERY popular Carpool Karaoke bit where they take famous musicians (and the occasional actor) for a sing-a-long session in a car. Well, the British funnyman brought this concept with him to the biggest night in musical theater — only sans the car.

In fact, the 37-year-old was able to convince Jake Gyllenhaal and Sean Hayes to perform Disney ballad A Whole New World together. Oh, you think we're kidding???
