This year, there will be two new categories because of the COVID lockdowns: Best Video from Home and Best Quarantine Performance.

Billie Eilish released her new song "My Future" along with a music video.
It was written at the beginning of quarantine and Billie said:
“It’s a song that’s really, really personal and special to me. When we wrote this song, it was exactly where my head was at — hopeful, excited and a crazy amount of self-reflection and self-growth. But recently it has also taken on a lot of new meaning in the context of what’s happening in the world now. I hope you can all find meaning in it for yourselves.”
Ellen DeGeneres has reportedly sent an apology letter to staff amid allegations of workplace misconduct at "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."
In the letter, she admits she hasn't been able to "stay on top of everything" as the show has grown. She is "disappointed" by her staffers' negative experiences and is "committed" to making a change.
Unfortunately for her, more stories about negative experiences with Ellen have surfaced. A TV producer recently revelaed the bizarre demands made during a 2013 appearance on Australia’s Today show.
Former producer Neil Breen, said her "producers called us aside … and said, ‘Now, Neil, no one is to talk to Ellen. You don’t talk to her, you don’t approach her, you don’t look at her.'”
