Samuel Goldwyn Serving ‘A Year in Champagne’ in 2015

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Samuel Goldwyn Films has bought North American rights to David Kennard’s documentary “A Year in Champagne” with plans for an early spring release.

Kennard’s follow-up to “A Year in Burgundy” screened at the Santa Barbara and Palm Beach International Film Festivals.

The film features behind-the-scenes footage at six Champagne houses, including Saint-Chamant, Gosset and Bollinger.

“Champagne is a beverage that people immediately associate with luxury and celebration and the film pays tribute to the region and people who make this very special wine,” said said Peter Goldwyn. “David takes the viewer on an incredible journey and delivers a vibrant, inside look at the complex world of champagne production.”

The deal was negotiated by Ian Puente and executive producer Todd Ruppert.

Goldwyn’s current titles include Freida Mock’s documentary “Anita,” William H. Macy’s feature directorial debut “Rudderless” and “The Last of Robin Hood.”

Naya Rivera stunned fans when she announced that she had married little known actor Ryan Dorsey in an intimate ceremony in Mexico July 19.

Naya Rivera Marries Ryan Dorsey

Rivera, 27, and Dorsey, 30, announced the news on Wednesday, merely three months after Rivera broke off her engagement to rapper Big Sean. River has since changed her official name on Twitter to Naya Rivera Dorsey, but has refrained from spilling any more details on her mysterious relationship with her new husband.

Who Is Ryan Dorsey?

Dorsey, relatively new to the screen, has appeared in commercials for X-Box, Stanely Steamer and Corona, and has starred in multiple short films. Dorsey is perhaps best known for his bit parts in Southland, Parks and Recreation and Mob City. He just wrapped filming his feature film debut, Blood Father, which also stars Mel Gibson, William H. Macy and Diego Luna.

Such an honor sitting next to this guy! »

Showtime’s David Nevins on ‘Shameless,’ Bob Dylan, ‘Dexter’ Finale

18 July 2014 3:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“We make shows that challenge the medium,” Showtime’s president of programming David Nevins told reporters at the annual Television Critics Assn. press tour, pointing to the success of freshman drama “Penny Dreadful.” “We’ve had this nice pattern of new shows come on and are higher rated than the shows that left.”

Nevins made no apologies for “Shameless” switching categories from drama to comedy, a move that garnered William H. Macy an Emmy nod for best actor in a comedy. “There’s an arbitrariness to all of it,” he said. “Any category you do, I’m going to try to defy it. That’s what we do at Showtime.”

“If you ask Bill Macy, he’s giving a comic performance. That’s how he defines his performance, even though it’s an incredibly dark character. It’s a lively time in television. I consider that a good thing.”

Press Tour: Emmy chief will look at category problem, do nothing

13 July 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

NBC's press tour panel for the 2014 Emmy telecast was a chance for Seth Meyers and his "Late Night" producer Mike Shoemaker to talk about their approach to Seth hosting the show. Mainly, though, it was an opportunity for TV critics to complain to Television Academy chairman Bruce Rosenblum about the broken Emmy category system — and for Rosenblum to smile, talk about his desire to examine the problem, and then make clear that he has no real plans to do anything to fix it. In fact, Rosenblum mainly seemed to think that the category issue — where dramatic shows are submitted as comedies, where miniseries are submitted as ongoing series (and, in the case of shows like "Tremé" and "Luther," vice versa), where series regulars are submitted as guest stars — was a good thing, because it suggested a healthy state of the industry. "There's far more terrific programming today," he noted. "The »

Five Easy Ways to Fix the Emmys

10 July 2014 5:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Emmy nominations were announced this morning and as usual, there were a number of snubs and surprises, which the Internet collectively whined about this morning. Rather than continue to mourn the lack of a nomination for Tatiana Maslany (which I admittedly complained about as well), actual solutions need to be pitched. Sadly, “chain Emmy voters to a chair and make them actually watch Orphan Black” seems somewhat implausible and definitely criminal, so here are five reasonable and seemingly easy solutions the Emmys should consider next year.

 

1. A Dramedy Category

One of the most-nominated newcomers announced on Emmy morning was Orange is the New Black, which with 12 total nods amassed more than any other comedy, including Modern Family, Veep, and The Big Bang Theory. Yet most fans of the show would hesitate to classify it as a comedy. Compared to most of the other shows in the category, it certainly does not fit the pattern. »

Is 'True Detective' worthy? 'Modern Family,' again? The critics react to 2014's Emmy nods

10 July 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Melissa Maerz: Jeff,

When the Emmy nominations were announced this morning, I was sitting at my desk, shouting, “Hodor! Hodor! Hodor!” Game of Thrones dominated with 19 nominations! Hot pie for everyone! I’d quibble with the fact that Noah Hawley’s fantastic update of Fargo didn’t get a best drama nod, especially since it was the runner-up with 18 nominations, and The Good Wife was unjustly ignored in that category, coming off its best season ever—it might be the only network drama that I truly loved—but the rest of the list was pretty solid. Among the smartest choices »

Emmy Nominations: How Accurate Were Our Predictions?

10 July 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the days leading up to the announcement of the 2014 Emmy nominees, Variety set out to predict the most likely contenders in the drama, comedy, acting, miniseries and movies categories.  While by no means an exact science, many of our picks made the final cut — with a few surprises joining them.  Here’s how our predictions stacked up against the list final nominees:

Outstanding Series

The competition for best drama series led to an overabundance of contenders for the six slots that did not leave enough room for “The Good Wife,” as Variety had predicted.  “Downton Abbey” once again garnered a nom, edging out the CBS drama and other hopeful pick “Masters of Sex”.

Although it was expected to come out ahead, two-time winner “Girls” did not see a nomination for comedy series this year. Nor did newcomer “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which was anticipated to pick up a series nom after »

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 »

Emmys 2014: Too many great shows, not enough spots, and some dumb choices

10 July 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It should be easy to feel sympathy for Emmy voters in 2014. There is more good television now than ever before, available in more places (including non-traditional streaming video outfits like Netflix and Amazon) than ever before. There is abundant category confusion, where a show like "Shameless" can jump from drama to comedy after presenting its bleakest season ever, where "True Detective" can be considered as a drama series while "American Horror Story" is a miniseries even though the two shows have the same basic structure, where the fourth season of "Tremé" has to be considered a miniseries because it didn't produce enough episodes to qualify elsewhere, where voters are asked to consider what Jim Parsons does on "Big Bang Theory" in the same context of what Louis C.K. does as an actor on "Louie." It is an impossible job, really. Even TV critics whose sole job is to watch this »
