The Emmy nominations are here, and streaming continues to rule Hollywood. Meanwhile, overseas, the Cannes Film Festival goes on until Saturday. And in Los Angeles, Britney Spears’ legal battle continues at the courthouse as the pop star’s case takes a major turn.

In this week’s episode of Variety’s new video series, “The Take,” presented by VIZIO, senior correspondent Elizabeth Wagmeister and film awards editor Clayton Davis discuss their takes on some of the week’s biggest headlines.

The 2021 Emmy nominations landed on Tuesday with well-deserved diversity and another big year for Netflix, which earned a whopping 129 total noms with “The Crown.” The royal drama was the streaming giant’s crown jewel with 24 nominations. However, thanks to HBO and HBO Max combining their nods, they totaled 130 nominations, topping Netflix. Streaming is king, once again this year, with Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” nabbing 21 nominations, and Apple TV Plus earning 20 nods for its sports comedy “Ted Lasso,” starring Jason Sudeikis. Marvel Studios had a big showing with “The Mandalorian” on Disney Plus tying “The Crown” with 24 nods and “WandaVision” earning an impressive 23.

Over in France, the Cannes Film Festival is as glitzy as ever with Tilda Swinton and Timothée Chalamet remaining red carpet favorites as their film, “The French Dispatch” from Wes Anderson, received a nine-minute standing ovation. The fest is also risking controversy, giving a last-minute slot to the Hong Kong protest documentary, “Revolution of Our Times,” which depicts recent political and social events in Hong Kong.

Speaking of controversial stories, the conservatorship battle over Spears continues to heat up. This Wednesday, the pop star gave another explosive testimony, appearing via phone and telling a judge that she wants her father and sole conservator, Jamie Spears, to face charges for her claims of “conservatorship abuse.” Her tearful plea made headlines, but the key takeaway from the court session — where our host Wagmeister was in attendance — was the judge granting Spears her own lawyer for the first time in the 13-year legal arrangement. Spears’ court-appointed attorney, Samuel Ingham III, resigned from the case, and the singer is now represented by power lawyer Mathew Rosengart, who was present in court and signaled that he would be helping his new client find a path to end her conservatorship.
