Minnie Driver Travels to Southeast Asia to Help Fight Poverty

24 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Minnie Driver has had a long-standing dedication to giving back, something that she hopes to pass on to her 5-year-old son, Henry. "The notions of service and kindness are really, really big in our house," the actress, 44, tells People. "They're things that we should all have, whether rich, poor, famous, or not famous. They're qualities that we should all be fostering in ourselves and in our kids." Driver has been involved with Oxfam International, which works to find global solutions to poverty, since she was in elementary school, and she recently took a life-changing trip with the organization to Southeast Asia. »

Outlets Like Netflix, AMC and Starz are in the Game for Emmys Long Haul

23 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO has come a long way from its nascent years as a hub for bigscreen movies, where viewers tuned in to watch box office hits they’d missed in the theater. With 99 noms, HBO is not only one of the prolific cablers in television, but also a heavyweight champ in terms of cranking out such critically acclaimed, nominations-netting fare as “Game of Thrones” and “True Detective,” both favorites in this year’s Emmy race.

One could easily argue that HBO has paved a trail for other cablers and broadband platforms to succeed both commercially and critically, from AMC’s “Breaking Bad” to Netflix’s first original series “House of Cards.” Netflix, Starz and Lifetime have all become viable contenders in the Emmy race, something few would have thought possible even two years ago.

Netflix’s success began with 14 nominations last year, including nine for “House of Cards.” This year the number has more than doubled. »

66th Annual Emmy Nominations Announced

10 July 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The nominations for the 66th Emmy Awards were released this morning, and I’m surprisingly satisfied with the results. Though there were an overabundance of nominations for the so-so Netflix series House of Cards and not nearly enough (read: any) for BBC America’s criminally-underrated Orphan Black, including for lead actress Tatiana Maslany, the categories shook out in a mostly predictable, if fair way.

Of course, heavyweights Breaking Bad and True Detective will be duking it out in the Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series categories (the latter of which saw both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson swipe nominations). Other shows which scored big include American Horror Story: Coven, dominating the Miniseries categories, Game of Thrones, which has the most nominations at 19, and Fargo, trailing just behind with 18.

I’m particularly pleased to see Idris Elba squeak into Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie »

2014 Emmy Award Nominations Announced

10 July 2014 7:21 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2014 Emmy Award nominations were announced today and led by HBO's "Game of Thrones" with 19 total nominations. New show "Fargo" scored 18, followed by "American Horror Story", "Breaking Bad", The Normal Heart and not too far down the line "True Detective" with 12. The one show I love and continue to watch, "Hannibal" received zero nominations, but then again, I have never paid too much attention to the Emmys, primarily because people have to nominate themselves, something I've never understood. "Game of Thrones" 19 "Fargo" 18 "American Horror Story: Coven" 17 "Breaking Bad" 16 "The Normal Heart" 16 "Saturday Night Live" 14 "House of Cards" 13 "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" 12 "Downton Abbey" 12 "Orange Is the New Black" 12 From a network perspective, leading the pack was HBO, coming in just one nomination shy of a 100 and it wasn't even a close race with CBS coming in second with 47.

Tom Cruise's female 'Mission: Impossible 5' co-star is 'Hercules'' Rebecca Ferguson

9 July 2014 5:43 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tom Cruise has a new love interest - at least in theory. Swedish actress Rebecca Ferguson, who won a Golden Globe nod for her performance in last year's BBC/Starz miniseries "The White Queen," has won the coveted female lead in "Mission: Impossible 5," according to Deadline. The actress joins returning stars Cruise, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner in the Christopher McQuarrie-directed sequel, which (as we found out earlier today) Alec Baldwin is also reportedly in talks for. The followup is set to begin filming in August. In addition to her role in the forthcoming Dwayne Johnson action vehicle "Hercules," Ferguson's credits include Swedish soap opera "Nya tider," "Wallander" and Ridley Scott's scrapped Showtime pilot "The Vatican." Other upcoming films include "Despite the Falling Snow" opposite Charles Dance and "The Red Tent" co-starring Morena Baccarin, Minnie Driver, Iain Glen and Debra Winger.
