Here's what's happening today in pop culture:

• "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" was No. 1 at the box office for a second weekend. The geriatric action franchise "The Expendables 3" came in fourth place, well below projections — with industry observers wondering if the movie suffered at the box office because of piracy, or because its PG-13 rating turned off the franchise's fans.

• The Creative Arts Emmys — unofficially known as the "not enough room on the telecast" awards — were handed out this weekend. "Orange Is the New Black," "Saturday Night Live" and Jimmy Fallon were among the big winners. [Vulture]

• Skateboarding legend Jay Adams, a member of the famed "Z-Boys" team who revolutionized the sport, has died at the age of 53. [Washington Post]
