Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) earns a 2012 MTV VMA nomination

Eddie Murphy may have had a hit song back in the day with “Party All the Time” and even hosted the MTV Video Music Awards in 1985, too — but Murphy couldn’t accomplish what Community’s Donald Glover already has in his spare time away from comedy: Score his own VMA nomination. Glover, who raps under the moniker Childish Gambino, is up for Best Hip-Hop Video for the video to his song, “Heartbeat.” His category: Best Hip-Hop Video Childish Gambino, “Heartbeat” Drake feat.

For the one person who still doesn’t understand the sports included in the Summer Olympics — so you’re that person?!? — BBC America has enlisted American comedian Dave Hill to help explain and demonstrate them. Here he is on the parallel bars. And based on the U.S. men’s gymnastics team performance last night, perhaps they could have used Hill’s participation! Sigh. But who is Dave Hill, exactly?
