SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race
The Golden Globes are traditionally TV’s awards disrupters. With so many new shows nominated, it elevates them long enough to (potentially) make a difference at the Emmys. But the SAG Awards are a more telling barometer of industry enthusiasm.

Actors make up a large chunk of the TV Academy membership — much more so than the 80-odd members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — which means seeing what they’re rewarding in December can often predict what might be a player when Emmy season begins next spring.

With so many shows launching in April to take advantage of Emmy voting, series that premiere in the fall need Globes and SAG Awards love to keep buzz alive through the winter and into the spring. Shows like “The Deuce,” “Glow,” “Ozark,” “Mindhunter,” “Godless,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and “Smilf” are aiming for a little extra attention right now.

Bruce Dern, Owen Teague Join Josh Hartnett in Thriller ‘Inherit the Viper’
Barry Films has hired Bruce Dern and Owen Teague to join Josh Hartnett and Margarita Levieva in the independent crime thriller “Inherit the Viper,” which began production this week.

Valorie Curry, Chandler Riggs, and Dash Mihok have also joined the cast. Anthony Jerjen is directing from Andrew Crabtree’s original script. Michel Merkt (“Elle,” “Toni Erdmann”) and Benito Mueller are the producers with Wolfgang Mueller exec producing for Barry Films.

The film is set amidst the prescription drug epidemic ravaging West Virginia and follows three siblings as they try to escape the spiral of violence that has held them captive since their father’s death. In these regions left behind by the economy, selling drugs has become their way of survival.

IFP’s Gotham Awards Give Indie Films a Boost

IFP’s Gotham Awards Give Indie Films a Boost
On Sept. 30, 1991, John Turturro and the late Jonathan Demme were the first of seven New Yorkers to garner a Gotham Award. Trophies were handed out at the Roseland Ballroom without much fanfare. The celebratory dinner, a fundraiser for the Independent Filmmaker Project, was a small, low-key, quirky event that didn’t draw mainstream media.

“It didn’t have that big huge red carpet thing that happens nowadays,” says former Ifp exec director Catherine Tait, who oversaw the creation of the Gotham Awards. “It was really intimate because the interest in indie filmmaking was not very heightened at the time.”

Cut to the same awards show at the same venue four years later. “Reservoir Dogs,” “Kids” and “Hoop Dreams” were officially part of the zeitgeist and Madonna was posing for photographers along with fellow Gotham Award guests Ted Turner and Jane Fonda. The Gotham Awards were officially a hot ticket.

Power Women Go Head-to-Head in Lead Actress Oscar Race

Power Women Go Head-to-Head in Lead Actress Oscar Race
The roles in the lead actress category run a wide range, from the precocious 6-year-old Brooklyn Prince in “The Florida Project” to 82-year-old Judi Dench playing the queen (again) in “Victoria & Abdul.” Other powerful women include previous nominees Jessica Chastain as a poker queen in “Molly’s Game,” Kate Winslet as a cheating wife in “Wonder Wheel” and Saoirse Ronan in the beloved coming-of-age tale “Lady Bird.” (At the age of 23, it’s interesting that Ronan could amost play the overdue card; she has two previous nominations and came close to winning with 2016’s “Brooklyn.”) They could battle previous winner Jennifer Lawrence; never underestimate the Academy love for her, even if “mother!” didn’t light up the box office. Other winners: Frances McDormand, delivering a fierce performance as a mother searching for justice in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and, of course, Meryl Streep.

AFM: Mid-Market Generating Mix of Optimism and Uncertainty

AFM: Mid-Market Generating Mix of Optimism and Uncertainty
As the 38th American Film Market reaches the half-way point, a mixed picture has emerged that reflects the profound changes in the movie industry.

Buyers offer the usual refrain about the seeming lack of big buzz titles as the industry continues to reel from fresh revelations in Hollywood’s sexual assault scandal — a topic that dominated conversations at Afm headquarters at the Loews Hotel in Santa Monica. Additionally, domestic box office for 2017 has been lagging by an alarming 5%.

But notable deals have closed, such as Paramount’s announcement Friday that it was buying the comedy “The Book Club,” starring Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen; Emmy winner Uzo Aduba joining the drama “The Virginian”; and Lionsgate buying five Studiocanal titles include Liam Neeson’s “Hard Powder” and the Colin Firth-Rachel Weisz drama “The Mercy.”
