'The Martian' and Michael Moore lead 2015 Toronto Film Festival selections

5 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival now has something of a slate.  Festival toppers Cameron Bailey and Piers Handling presided over a press conference Tuesday morning where more than 34 films were announced including the world premieres of "The Martian," "The Family Fang" and "Demolition."  It's an intriguing initial lineup for the venerable Canadian institution and something of a steadying the ship after losing some major debuts to Venice, Telluride and the New York Film Festival over the past few years. Well, maybe. The most impressive world premieres include the aforementioned "Demolition" with Jake Gyllenhaal (officially the best opening night film in recent memory), "The Family Fang" with Nicole Kidman, "Legend" with Tom Hardy, "Trumbo" with Bryan Cranston, "The Martian" with Matt Damon and Lance Armstrong doc "The Program" with Ben Foster and Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Where to Invade Next."  Notable films that will have premiered »

Ed Harris, Martin Sheen Endorse Patricia Richardson for SAG-aftra Presidency

22 July 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Patricia Richardson’s challenge to SAG-aftra president Ken Howard has attracted endorsements from Elliot Gould, Valerie Harper, Ed Harris, Robert Hays, Amy Madigan, Ken McCord, Nick Nolte, Martin Sheen and Nancy Sinatra.

About 140,000 ballots went out this week to the SAG-aftra membership, with results due to be tabulated on Aug. 20. Richardson, best known as Tim Allen’s co-star on “Home Improvement,” announced her candidacy on June 25 as head of the self-styled progressive Membership First slate.

Howard won elections in 2009 and 2011 for the SAG presidency and then won the post in 2013 against Esai Morales in the first election for the merged SAG-aftra, running each time as the head of the moderate Unite for Strength slate. He announced June 1 that he would seek re-election with Jenny O’Hara as his running mate for secretary-treasurer.

Howard’s current endorsement list includes Alec Baldwin, Lewis Black, Bryan Cranston, Sally Field, Tom Hanks, William H. Macy, »

New ‘Fargo’ Trailer Starts With Something Small

22 July 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There’s no waffling about the first trailer for FX’s sophomore season of “Fargo”: This is a deal of a crime scene.

The new season of the miniseries is set in 1979 and follows Patrick Wilson and Ted Danson’s cops Lou Solverson and Hank Larsson as they begin to investigate what appears to be a murder at a diner named for the patterned breakfast food. Along the way, they’ll have encounters with a mustache-free and conspiracy-minded character played by Nick Offerman and a formidable foe in the form of a matriarch played by Jean Smart.

The sequence of events will eventually lead to Wilson’s character becoming the diner-owning Lou Solverson whom Keith Carradine portrayed in the miniseries’ first season.

“If you were paying attention in season one, you know we made a lot of references to Sioux Falls, and that was deliberate; that wasn’t an accident, »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Actor in a Comedy Series

21 July 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Many were worried before the nominations came out that Amazon didn't have a strong enough presence to get its breakout hit "Transparent" the attention it deserves. Now that Jill Soloway's dramedy has hauled in a hefty number of nods, the concern shifts to whether or not it can win. If it's a favorite anywhere, it's here. This marks the seventh Emmys nomination for Jeffrey Tambor, and his zero-for-six record should only improve his odds at taking home the trophy this year.  Read More: How Matt LeBlanc & 'Episodes' Got Us One More Season of 'Friends' Of course, he's not alone in the category when it comes to lacking wins. Matt LeBlanc is also zero for six at the Emmys, despite repeat nominations for "Friends" and "Episodes." Don Cheadle is zero for seven, including three straight losses for "House of Lies." William H.

16 July 2015 2:12 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

American Crime” swept the Emmy nominations with 10 in total, the most of any broadcast network. The award recognition is sure to bring more eyes to season two, following a freshman run on ABC that was critically acclaimed but didn’t have the ratings numbers to match it.

Mad Men and Game of Thrones were the big nominees

British shows and actors did well with nods for Downton Abbey and DerekTransparent and Jeffrey Tambor were also recognised

3.47pm Et

We’re bowing out with a final piece that wraps up Hannah Ellis-Petersen’s piece about the UK success at the Emmy nominations, and Brian Moylan’s piece:

Once again, Downton Abbey received the most nominations of any British drama, continuing the series’ long-running awards success in the Us. The fourth series saw nominations for Jim Carter for best supporting actor and Joanne Froggatt for best supporting actress.

The ITV show, which has earned the most Emmy nominations of any non-us show in history, will again compete against glossy American dramas such as House of Cards, Game of Thrones and Mad Men for the accolade of outstanding drama series.

2015 Emmys Nominations: You take the good, you take the bad

16 July 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In this new Golden Age of TV, where great shows are available in abundance, only no one has time to watch them all — least of all the people who actually work in television, and thus vote for the Emmys — the only way to look at each year's Emmy nominations is to treat them like the theme song from "The Facts of Life." You take the good, you take the bad, you take 'em both, and there you have this year's Emmy nominees list. So there were pleasant surprises, like Tatiana Maslany finally getting into the lead drama actress field, and "Parks and Recreation" making its way back into the comedy series category for its triumphant final season after only being nominated there once before. But there was also the usual rubber stamping of past nominees(*), like "Downton Abbey," "Homeland" and "House of Cards" taking up three of the seven drama »

2015 Emmy Nominations: Snubs and Surprises

16 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Give the Emmys credit for at least trying to keep up with the current explosion of quality television.

This year, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences expanded the Best Comedy and Drama Series categories to seven slots each, and they made other minor changes (online voting!) meant to bring the awards into the 21st century. Still, there's more good TV now than even the Academy can keep up with, so the outrage and shock over the snubs and surprises in this morning's Emmy nominations is inevitable. Here are some of the most astonishing omissions and inclusions.

Best Drama Series

The biggest shocker here is the snub of "Empire," the season's breakout hit. Was it too soapy or guilty-pleasure-ish for the Academy to take seriously? Fellow newbie/Twitter sensation "How to Get Away With Murder" was also snubbed. Golden Globe fave "The Affair" got no love, here or in other major categories. »

The 2015 Emmy Award Nominations

16 July 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

This year's Emmy Award nominations have been announced and "Game of Thrones" topped the list with a whopping 24 nominations, followed by "American Horror Story: Freak Show" with 19 noms and "Olive Kitteridge" with 13.

HBO was by far the network to be with 124 nominations in total across the prime time and technical categories. They were followed by ABC (42), CBS & NBC (41), FX (38), Fox (35), Netflix (34), PBS (29), Comedy Central (25) and AMC (24).

With a new online voting system, the list of nominees are a bit fresher than usual with a lot of first-time nominees in acting categories, and some notable absentees like network comedy stalwarts "The Big Bang Theory" and Melissa McCarthy in favour of fresher faces such as "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt". There was some excellent and overdue casting nominations such as Tatiana Maslany for "Orphan Black" and Taraji P. Henson for "Empire," along with the new 'Limited Series' element and more suitable classifications for some »
