Ray Lewis fever is clearly spreading beyond Baltimore! On the red carpet at Sunday's SAG Awards, Mario Lopez from "Extra" asked arriving celebs if they could do the Ray Lewis dance. Several tried, including Rico Rodriguez ("Modern Family") and Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory"). But perhaps no one looked better than Alfre Woodard, who refused to even try. Clearly, Ray, there's room for you in Hollywood after the Super Bowl. Thanks, Extra.

If you're a fan of awards shows, drinking isn't required to get through the three-hour self-celebration that is the Emmy Awards. But it sure makes it more fun. And if you're either not a big awards show person (or perhaps forced to watch for some reason), we want to help you out a bit. Here's our official drinking game for Monday's ceremony (8 p.m., NBC). And if you need to, feel free to blame us for taking a personal day on Tuesday. TAKE A DRINK IF • Host Seth Meyers makes an ill-advised joke referencing "Orange is the New Black" and race relations.

Two television productions that pushed the LGBT envelope on the small screen this year were big winners Thursday, as the 2014 Emmy nominations were announced. The HBO movie "The Normal Heart," centered on the outbreak of AIDS in 1980s New York City , earned 16 nominations, while the women's prison comedy "Orange is the New Black" on Netflix took 12 nominations. Among the "Orange" nods was one for outstanding guest actress in a comedy series for Laverne Cox, a transgender activist whose success on the show has launched her acting career -- and landed her on the cover of Time .  According to The Advocate , Cox's nomination is the first given to an openly transgender actress.

Baltimore was again front and center at the Emmy Awards telecast, with two major comedy awards going Sunday night to HBO's "Veep," the locally made series starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Vice President Selina Meyer. Louis-Dreyfus, the most honored comedy actress in TV history, won as best actress in a comedy for the second year in a row, while Tony Hale grabbed the Emmy as best supporting actor. "House of Cards," which is also made in Maryland, won the Emmy for best direction in a drama series for the work of David Fincher in Episode 1 of the groundbreaking Netflix political thriller.

As I watched HBO's new film "The Normal Heart" this weekend, sharp memories kept flashing through my mind of emaciated young people wracked with sores and dying before my eyes. They are memories I shouldn't have, memories most gay men my age thankfully lack. I was born in 1985 - the same year as the premier of Larry Kramer's Tony Award-winning play on the start of the AIDS epidemic in New York City's gay community, which "The Normal Heart" was adapted from. Thanks to a host of drugs now available to HIV-positive people in the United States, I count myself among a generation of American gay men who never had to watch thousands of our peers rapidly deteriorate from perfect health to death's doorstep because of a monstrous, unnamed disease.

A state inspection has determined that the mound on a Berlin chicken farm that environmental groups said was polluting a nearby waterway is treated sewage sludge rather than poultry manure. Maryland Department of the Environment spokesman Jay Apperson e-mailed Tuesday that an inspector found the pile on the Hudson farm was "Class A biosolid," a form of sewage sludge that has been treated to kill harmful bacteria and is only lightly regulated by the state. Jim Parsons, deputy chief of public utilities for Ocean City, said Tuesday that his agency had delivered a load of "biosolids" from Ocean City's wastewater treatment plant to Alan Hudson's farm in August.

As CBS prepares to present its slate for next season to advertisers this morning, the network has reportedly ordered four dramas and at least one comedy. In addition to the previously expected pick-ups, the industry trade papers are reporting that CBS will order Moonlight. Formerly titled Twilight, the Angel-esque drama stars Alex O'Loughlin as a vampire private investigator. Moonlight takes the slot most observers were expecting to go to the zombie dramedy Babylon Fields, which is still believed to be in contention for a midseason slot, along with the LL Cool J vehicle The Man and Skip Tracer, which stars Stephen Dorff.
