2014 Emmy Award Winners Dominated by 'Breaking Bad'

26 August 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night the 2014 Emmy Award winners were announced with "Breaking Bad" taking home top honors with five wings including Outstanding Drama Series, followed by "Modern Family" with three wins including Outstanding Comedy Series. FX programs "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo" each took home two awards including an Outstanding Miniseries win for "Fargo". Meanwhile, new shows such as "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley" went home empty handed and for all the fanfare it received in its first season, including 12 Emmy nominations, "True Detective" only took home one win, that being for director Cary Joji Fukunaga". Personally, I don't give a lick about the Emmys, it's right there with the Grammys in terms of worthless awards shows for me. It's a show wherein people must nominate themselves and while most award shows are no better, this one is down there near the bottom for me. So, with that said, »

Film4 FrightFest 2014 Review – Stage Fright (2014)

26 August 2014 4:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Stage Fright, 2014

Written and directed Jerome Sable

Starring Allie MacDonald, Douglas Smith, Kent Nolan, Brandon Uranowitz, Ephraim Ells, Melanie Leishman, Thomas Alderson, James McGowan, Meat Loaf and Minnie Driver

Synopsis:

A snobby musical theater camp is terrorized by a blood-thirsty killer who hates musical theater.

If you took Friday the 13th, elements of Scream and the musical stylings of High School Musical and put them in a blood-filled blender with Meat Loaf, you’d get Stage Fright. It’s very fun, often hilarious and too silly for its own good at times.

Stage Fright opens with “the following is based on true events, while the names have been changed to protect the families, all song and dance routines are performed as they were,” so that should give you an idea of the movie’s tone. It’s very self-aware and features lots of obvious visual homages to horror movies of »

Breaking Bad Tops True Detective at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

26 August 2014 2:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Breaking Bad’s amazing final season always meant that it was a likely winner come awards season. However, the debut of the critically acclaimed True Detective earlier this year did leave many wondering whether it might rob the end to Walter White’s story of one final sweep of prizes at last night’s Emmy Awards.

As it turns out, Breaking Bad would end up being rewarded for those amazing final episodes, though True Detective did earn a very well deserved award for director Cary Joji Fukunaga (who helmed all eight instalments).

The UK was represented by Sherlock, and that too did exceptionally well, walking away with Emmys for Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and writer Steven Moffat. Looking at the results, it’s hard to imagine anyone being too upset with the results, though many Game of Thrones fans won’t be happy to see that it was again snubbed. »

Emmy Fashion: Red, White and Safe All Over

25 August 2014 7:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s no longer even an open secret that celebs don’t pick their own clothes for red carpet events, or any events really. They hire stylists, stylists have relationships with fashion houses, and fashion houses make strategic moves to have them aligned with the stars of the moment.

Take the impressive host of Lebanese designers: Elie Saab who dressed Julia Roberts in a short beaded frock, Nicholas Jebran who dressed Allison Janney in a long red velvet knotted dress and Zuhair Murad who dressed Camila Alves and Taylor Schilling. Some are up and comers, others, established designers, but would those actors have come upon these notable designers without the help of their stylists?

Matthew McConaughey has long been aligned with Dolce & Gabbana, and stuck with the label Monday night in a dashing navy tuxedo that recalled the ones he’s worn at other awards shows. Likewise, Octavia Spencer and Tadashi Shoji continued their relationship, »

Seeing Red! Stars in Scarlett Gowns Dominate at the 2014 Emmys

25 August 2014 4:49 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Red hot indeed! The 2014 Emmys red carpet is in full swing, and this is what we've noticed so far: there are a lot of scarlet dresses. Giuliana Rancic kicked off the star-studded event in a strapless Gustavo Cadile design in the smoldering shade.  Not far behind was January Jones, who crushed her red dress competition in a printed Prabal Gurung gown that also showed off her strappy black sandals. Minnie Driver took a risk with her plunging with her crimson gown, but the jeweled décolleté definitely paid off. And Christina Hendricks gets bonus points for being the redhead in red, wearing a one-shoulder Marchesa gown. Even Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting got the red memo, wearing a fittingly sweet Monique »

2014 Emmy Awards -- Red Gowns Rule the Red Carpet

25 August 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Red hot!A slew of stylish stars looked radiant in red at the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday night. From simple silhouettes to embroidered details, the celeb set showed off the shade in so many variations, making the vibrant hue the most dominant color of the night on the red carpet. Heidi Klum looked stunning in a draped, fiery gown by Zac Posen, which she paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and tousled waves. The designer loved the "camellia"-colored dress that he created for the "Project Runway" star. "It was truly surprising that everyone in the room fell in love with it the moment she tried it on," he told People. "The ease of the dress, against my more structured pieces, felt refreshing." While the stunning supermodel rocked a lighter version of the shade, stars like Christina Hendricks, Minnie Driver, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lisa Rinna, January Jones and Giuliana Rancic went for candy-apple red tones. »
