Emmy Awards host Kenan Thompson and the ceremony’s producers are promising a feel-good event. That description doesn't apply to several of the top nominated shows. Among the best drama contenders at Monday night's ceremony are the violently dystopian “Squid Game” and “Succession,” about a powerful and cutthroat family. Even comedy nominee “Ted Lasso,” the defending champ, took a dark turn last season. But after several pandemic-affected awards seasons, Emmy producers say the night will be big and festive. Kenan Thompson of “Saturday Night Live” fame says he wants a celebratory and stress-free night. The Emmys air at 8 p.m. Eastern on NBC and stream on Peacock.

A majority of adults in the U.S. say health care is not handled well in the country. That's according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The poll reveals public satisfaction with the U.S. health care system is remarkably low, with fewer than half of Americans saying it's handled well in general. Only 12% say it's handled extremely or very well. Americans have similar views about health care for older adults. Overall, the public gives even lower marks for handling of prescription drug costs, the quality of care at nursing homes and mental health care.

Georgia's Republican Party once relied on votes in Atlanta's close-in suburbs, but today the GOP increasingly relies on the mountains of north Georgia for its votes. An analysis by The Associated Press shows a 41-county region of north Georgia now has as many GOP voters as the core of metro Atlanta. Reliance on those voters shapes the party. In a state where whites are becoming the minority, north Georgia is overwhelmingly white. While Democrats attack and Republicans fret over abortion restrictions and loose gun laws in the suburbs, there’s little public wavering in the mountains. That's challenging Democrats, who look for votes in the region even if they’re not going to win locally.

President Joe Biden is set to channel John F. Kennedy on the 60th anniversary of the former president’s moonshot speech. He's trying to set the nation’s sights on “ending cancer as we know it.” The president is traveling to Boston on Monday to highlight a new federally backed study that seeks to validate using blood tests to screen against multiple cancers. Medical experts say it could be a game-changer in diagnostic testing to dramatically improve early detection of cancers. Biden's speech at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum comes as he targets diseases that kill more people in the U.S. except for heart disease.

Months after the first nominating contests of the 2022 midterm season, New Hampshire, Delaware and Rhode Island will bring up the rear with their primaries on Tuesday. That will leave the winners a mere eight weeks to make their case ahead of the Nov. 8 general election. In New Hampshire, GOP primaries for U.S. Senate and two U.S. House seats highlight the strength of far-right candidates and the influence of former President Donald Trump as candidates compete for a chance to take on Democratic incumbents. In Rhode Island, Gov. Dan McKee faces four Democratic challengers, while a crowd of candidates is vying to replace retiring Democratic Rep. Jim Langevin.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro is backing a program that aims to give ownership rights to some 340,000 people who now live on lands that are either state owned or were privately held but unused. The far-right leader is trailing in the polls and hoping the Title Brazil program will help boost his odds of reelection. He's touted the program as a means of settling old disputes, creating legal certainty and weakening the leftist Landless Workers Movement, which backs his rival for the presidency. It’s a partial, free-market approach to land reform in a vast nation that since colonial times has seen great inequalities in the distribution of land.

Shares are higher in Asia after last week's strong close on Wall Street, the first weekly gain in four weeks. Many markets were closed on Monday, while Tokyo and Sydney advanced. Oil prices declined. Investors are watching for U.S. inflation figures and Chinese economic data this week. Coronavirus cases are still casting a shadow, with about 65 million Chinese residents under lockdown as of last week despite just 1,248 new cases of domestic transmission, mostly asymptomatic, being reported on Sunday. On Friday, the benchmark S&P 500 index rose 1.5%, while big gains for technology companies pushed the Nasdaq composite even higher. The Dow Jones Industrial Average also climbed, as did small-company stocks.

Closing arguments are scheduled Monday for R. Kelly and two co-defendants in the R&B singer’s trial on federal charges of trial-fixing, child pornography and enticing minors for sex. Jury deliberations will follow. The defense rested late Friday. Kelly and his ex-business manager Derrell McDavid are charged with fixing Kelly’s 2008 state child pornography trial —  at which Kelly was acquitted — by threatening witnesses and concealing video evidence. Both also face child pornography charges. A third co-defendant, Kelly associate Milton Brown, is accused of receiving child pornography. The 55-year-old Kelly already was sentenced to 30 years in prison in June after a separate federal trial in New York.

With just as much fanfare but a tad less drama, Harry Styles took the Toronto International Film Festival by storm on Sunday, premiering the tragic gay romance “My Policeman” less than a week after the debut of “Don’t Worry Darling” in Venice. “My Policeman,” in which Styles stars alongside Emma Corrin and David Dobson, features arguably the fullest dramatic performance yet from 28-year-old pop star. He stars as a closeted 1950s policeman in Brighton who falls in love with a museum curator yet marries a local schoolteacher.
