TV Shows We Can't Wait for in 2015

16 December 2014 12:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If it were up to us, every season would be TV season. No more 10, 16, or 22-episode batches at a time - just 52 blissful weeks of new content from our favorite shows. But, alas, that's not how it works. We can pretend that the wait just makes us appreciate the shows more when they air, but in this world of instant gratification it really just makes us impatient. Here are 15 shows we're particularly excited/impatient/desperate to see return or premiere in 2015.

"The Walking Dead"

The first season of "The Walking Dead" only had six episodes, so we should be grateful to get eight episodes of Season 5 from October-November 2014 and eight more again when Twd returns from February-March. Plus, there's a "companion series" coming at some point in 2015 as well. And we are grateful - when we're not whining about the wait. How will Maggie Greene, Daryl Dixon and company react »

The 10 Best TV Dramas of 2014

15 December 2014 1:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Blame “True Detective,” in part, which helped kick off 2014 in rousing fashion, but the blurred line between “limited series” and just plain old series has complicated the definition of a “drama.” But for the purposes of a year-end list, the two can coexist, encompassing any program presented on an episodic basis, even if the story offered closure.

By that measure, both “True Detective” and “Fargo” — the latter categorized as a miniseries for Emmy balloting — as well as Starz’s “The Missing” can join an array of dramas that, frankly, could easily fill a “top 20” list. But who on Earth has time to click through that?

Obviously, reducing the current age of drama to an arbitrary tally is going to overlook several heavy hitters, and the roster underwent considerable tinkering right down till the end. Series like “The Walking Dead,” “Mad Men” and “Downton Abbey” – -which all would have qualified in the past –- didn’t, »

The year in TV: The rise of single-director television seasons

15 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Clive Owen and Michael Angarano in The Knick

From the apparent death of the romantic sitcom to the resurgence of superhero shows, there have been a lot of developments in television over the year. But if there is one trend that has defined 2014 in television, it has been the migration of directors to the small screen for season-long projects. While not an idea that’s unique to the year, as the Jane Campion-helmed first season of Top of the Lake signalled the trend in 2013, this year’s television firmly established the migration as something more than a novelty.

Of course, big name directors hopping in for an episode or two of shows they are executive producers on is nothing new. Martin Scorsese’s direction in the pilot no doubt convinced some people to give Boardwalk Empire a chance, as did Neil Marshall’s work on the pilot of Constantine »

Best TV of 2014: No 7 – True Detective

15 December 2014 1:59 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The noir-ish HBO series, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, was a rare serial killer story that favoured strangeness over gore, and viewers were hooked on the mystery

See the full countdown so farNominate your pick in our form at the bottom of the article

Time may be a flat circle, but enough has rotated that some of the lustre has left True Detective. HBO’s prestige procedural felt dazzling on-screen – spanning 17 years, a meaty, two-hander between damaged, driven cop Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and his self-righteous, self-deluding partner Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) against the pungent backdrop of the Louisiana bayou. Cohle and Hart did not banter over corndogs like Starsky and Hutch. Instead, there were fractious arguments in a suffocating car. Whenever Cohle embarked on another nihilistic monologue about the nature of evil, Hart looked about ready to snap off the steering wheel.

Things were just as interesting behind-the-scenes. »

30 Best TV Series of 2014

12 December 2014 9:27 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

10. The Leftovers

There have been a number of new and returning shows that have enthralled, horrified, excited, and caused numerous other emotional reactions among the viewing public. However no show, new or old, has left an impression as deep as that of HBO’s The Leftovers. While the series’ 10 episode first season ended its run in early September, its impact has lasted much longer, making it a strong entry in the list of the best shows of 2014.

The key strength of The Leftovers is its seeming disinterest in what caused the event at the center of the show. The series’ decision to focus on the effect rather than the cause not only sets it apart from nearly everything else on television, it also helps develop the show’s wide swath of characters. In addition, putting the disastrous event as the backdrop, rather than at the forefront, allows the audience to »

Jennifer Lawrence has also met with Paul Feig for Ghostbusters reboot

11 December 2014 10:53 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier today we brought you the news that Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect 2) had met with Paul Feig for the Ghostbusters reboot. And now we bring word that Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1) has also met with the director about a role.

Speaking with MTV (via Cbm) Lawrence said, “I actually met with the director. I had dinner with him. Yeah I sure did… I will never cross the streams.”

Lawrence and Wilson are the only confirmed names for having met with Feig, but it is assumed that Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Melissa McCarthy (St. Vincent), Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Linda Cardellini (Scooby Doo) are on the shortlist. Well, at least that was original Ghostbuster Bill Murray had on his wish list.

Jennifer Lawrence is currently starring in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which is out now in cinemas, and also stars Josh Hutcherson, »

Announcing the 2015 Golden Globe Nominations

11 December 2014 9:15 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning, continuing this week's exciting slew of award nods after Wednesday's SAG Award nominees. There are way more movie nominations to go around this time, what with both the drama and musical/comedy categories, so even tohough there are a lot of the same names seen at the SAGs, there are still some new entrants to award season, like Selma and Big Eyes (though still no American Sniper or Unbroken). There are some surprises in the TV categories, however; while there are lots of repeat names from years past (and this year's Emmys), it's exciting to see Jane the Virgin (and its star, Gina Rodriguez) and Transparent up for Globes! The Globes air Jan. 11, so see everyone who's nominated here.

Golden Globe Nominations: 26 Biggest Snubs and Surprises

11 December 2014 8:22 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. loves to nominate celebrities, but this year, voters left a few off the list — no Angelina Jolie for directing “Unbroken,” no Ben Affleck for “Gone Girl,” no Bradley Cooper for “American Sniper” and no Julia Roberts for HBO’s “The Normal Heart.” The Golden Globes voters, made up of fewer than 100 foreign journalists, don’t overlap with the Academy, but because their nominations are announced just days before the Oscars nominating window, they are an influential group in terms of giving performances a boost. And the big winners after Thursday morning’s announcement included Jake Gyllenhaal for “Nightcrawler,” Jennifer Aniston in “Cake,” David Oyelowo for “Selma” and “Birdman,” which landed more nominations than any other film (seven). On the TV side, the Globes proved to once again be the hippest awards show, by including freshman series like “Jane the Virgin,” “Silicon Valley” and “Transparent.”

Peter Bradshaw has file his thoughts on the Globes. Here’s a snippet:

It’s the Globes! Hardly any institution has benefitted more from the rise of the awards-season and the predominance of celebrity culture.

The Golden Globes! Everyone’s favorite Almost-the-Oscars ceremony. The 72nd Annual nominations were unveiled Thursday morning by presenters Kate Beckinsale, Jeremy Piven, Paula Patton, Peter Krause and Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Theo Kingma.

The HFPA went in big on Boyhood, The Imitation Game, Birdman, and The Theory of Everything, placing Birdman into the Comedy/Musical category where it is likely to clean up. Missing from the bunch are heavy hitters like Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper and only a single nomination for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.

On the TV front, it was a big morning for Transparent, Orange is the New Black, The Affair, and House of Cards, while snubbing Emmy favorites Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory, as well as hits like The Walking Dead, The Americans, Mad Men or the final season of Boardwalk Empire.

Nominations For The 72nd Annual Golden Globes Announced

11 December 2014 6:39 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their nominations for the 72nd Annual Golden Globes. Again we have Birdman at the head of the pack, earning seven nominations (all categories it was eligible for), including Best Picture – Comedy/Musical, Best Director, Best Actor – Comedy/Musical, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay, and Best Original Score. Boyhood and The Imitation Game followed behind with five nods apiece, which included Best Picture – Drama, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Screenplay.

There weren’t any particularly surprising inclusions in this morning’s nominations, as nearly everything we expected to be here made it in. What’s perhaps most surprising of all is that Angelina Jolie’s war drama Unbroken, a film that was expected to fetch at least a little recognition, was completely shut out. Nor did we see the music drama Whiplash take more than its most expected nod for Best Supporting Actor. »

Birdman leads Golden Globes noms

11 December 2014 5:56 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Birdman is fast emerging as Fox Searchlight’s poster child of the season as the New Regency production emerged top of the pile on December 11 with seven 72nd Golden Globe nominations.

Alejandro González Iñárritu’s film earned kudos for best film in a comedy or musical, best actor in the same category for Michael Keaton, supporting acting nods for Edward Norton and Emma Stone, director, screenplay and score.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association gave five nominations to IFC FilmsBoyhood, as well as to TWC’s The Imitation Game, while Gone Girl, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Selma and The Theory Of Everything earned four apiece.

There were total shut-outs for Unbroken, American Sniper and Top Five, while Interstellar earned a sole nomination for Hans Zimmer’s score.

Timothy Spall was conspicuous in his absence in the acting stakes for Mr Turner as was Marion Cotillard for Two Days, One Night.
