Per the Emmy rules that were instituted last year, “Only performers appearing in less than 50% of the eligible episodes are able to submit in the Guest Performer categories.” MacNicol, who played Jonah’s (Tim Simons) uncle Jeff Kane, appeared in five episodes of the ten-episode HBO comedy.
The Television Academy issued a statement that said: “Upon review of the Guest Actor in a Comedy Series category, the Television Academy has determined that Peter MacNicol unfortunately exceeds the number of episodes permissible for inclusion in that category.
HBO’s guest actor entry for Peter MacNicol was accurate at the time of the submission deadline, but he was subsequently included in an additional ‘Veep’ episode. Unfortunately, that additional appearance places him in 50% of the season’s episodes »

So far in this series of pieces that look at the straight-to-dvd or VOD movies of some of our favourite actors who have fallen on hard times, we’ve only looked at men (to date: Bruce Willis, Nicolas Cage, John Cusack and John Travolta). That’s because, mostly, actresses find themselves almost completely out of the game once they hit 30ish – an unnecessary full stop that a lot of us would like to see removed in the future.
Denise Richards, sadly, is no different. After marrying a man she found herself in an abusive relationship with, her career climb stumbled and she was forced back down into TV roles, where she’s currently still putting in the hours.
Richards had a sparkling, American Dream-like start in life. »

The Television Academy has spoken! Here are your 2016 Emmy Nominations...
The time to fill out your Emmy Madness Bracket is now. Wait, wrong event. But that would be fun, wouldn’t it? Kirsten Dunst slugging it out versus her network foe Sarah Paulson for Emmy gold. How about perennial favorite Game Of Thrones pitted against underdog newcomer Mr. Robot in the championship round? In the “peak TV” era, maybe a bracket formatted competition is the only true way to determine the best in the world of television.
Anyway, we’ll have to settle for fan polls and speculation as we countdown to the 68th Annual Emmy Award on Sunday, Sept. 18th on ABC. Until then, here is the list of nominees for the major categories. You can find the full list here.

HBO’s epic fantasy drama “Game of Thrones” once again leads the pack of contenders for the Primetime Emmy Awards, grabbing 23 nominations for its sixth season. FX’s “The Americans” and USA Network’s “Mr. Robot” were among the breakthrough shows in a year when Emmy voters were overwhelmed with choices of shows seeking Emmy gold.
“Thrones” is up for the top drama series award that it won last year for the first time, along with 11 other trophies, setting a new record for wins in a single year. Vying with “Thrones” for drama series honors this year are “The Americans,” AMC’s “Better Call Saul,” PBS’ “Downton Abbey,” Showtime’s “Homeland,” Netflix’s “House of Cards” and “Mr. Robot.”
Contenders for comedy series honors are ABC’s “Blackish” and “Modern Family,” Netflix’s “Master of None” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” HBO’s “Veep” (the reigning champ) and “Silicon Valley” and Amazon’s “Transparent.”

The critics spoke, and TV Academy members listened.
Two TV critic faves, “The Americans” and “Mr. Robot,” managed to break through and land Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Drama category this year, while the comedy category was also dominated by well-reviewed series, such as newcomer “Master of None.”
The Television Academy’s attempts in recent years to broaden its membership, expand categories and open up its voting process continues to pay off, as new blood managed to sneak into many of the major categories. Not only did “The Americans” and “Mr. Robot” break through on the series side, but several of the shows’ leads landed their first-ever Emmy acting nomination.
But many favorites also returned with a splash as well, including last year’s Outstanding Drama Series winner, “Game of Thrones.” The HBO juggernaut landed 23 nominations, the most of any program this year – and down just a tick from last »

Emmy Nominations will be announced Thursday at 11:30 am Est (stay glued to TVLine for the complete rundown/analysis!) and my gut is telling me that USA Network’s breakout hacker drama — and its sterling ensemble, led by Rami Malek and Christian Slater — will be completely shut out.

With all the talk of Peak TV, it’s possible we’ve reached a turning point for the Emmy Awards. Could this be the year the TV Academy makes some bold out-of-the-box choices and recognizes just how wide-ranging the past season’s TV achievements actually were? We’re not betting on it. When it comes to the Emmy Awards, the tried-and-true typically carry the day — with a modest mix of new faces sprinkled in. That’s why you may get a feeling of deja vu reading our predictions for this year’s nominees. We’ll find out who makes the cut when nominations are announced on Thursday, July 14 at 8:30 a.m. Pt.
“Better Call Saul” (AMC)
“Downton Abbey” (PBS)
“Game of Thrones” (HBO)
“House of Cards” (Netflix)
“Mr. Robot” (USA)
“Orange is the New Black” (Netflix)

It's been two years since we've seen Mel Gibson on the big screen, playing General Stonebanks in Lionsgate's action-packed sequel The Expendables 3. Many fans were hoping that the actor would reprise his role as Max Rockatansky in George Miller's long-awaited sequel Mad Max: Fury Road, but Tom Hardy ended up taking the role instead. Next month, Mel Gibson returns to the silver screen in Blood Father, and you can see in the first trailer that his character John Link shares some similarties with Max Rockatansky.
Blood Father stars Mel Gibson as John Link, an ex-convict who fights to protect his estranged daughter from the drug cartel that is hunting her down. In this thrilling action film, John must use his connections from his past life and his skills as an ex-criminal to keep him and his daughter alive. Blood Father also stars Erin Moriarty, Diego Luna, Michael Parks, »
If Mel Gibson has been quietly staging a career comeback in recent years with roles in The Expendables 3 and Jodie Foster’s The Beaver, then 2016 could well go down as a defining turning point for the divisive Aussie.
For the first time since Apocalypto ten years ago, Gibson is back behind the lens for Hacksaw Ridge, the Oscar-friendly war thriller due to land in November. He’s also lined up a starring role in Blood Father, an old-school thriller that reads like Taken repurposed for the sun-kissed plains of Albuquerque.
Jean-François Richet is behind the lens, with Gibson stepping into the dusty shoes of an ex-convict turned vengeful patriarch, who “fights to protect his estranged daughter from the drug cartel that is hunting her down. In this thrilling action film, John Link must use his connections from his past life and his skills as an ex-criminal to keep him and his daughter alive. »

It's nice to see that Mel Gibson has sobered up long enough to make a movie and heck, it looks like he's even trying to revive the badass persona of his early career.
Already a minor hit coming out of an early festival run, Blood Father stars Gibson as John Link, an ex-con who returns to a life of crime when he re-unites with his 16-year old daughter who is on the run from drug dealers who are trying to kill her.
Adapted by Peter Craig and Andrea Berloff from Caig's novel (he was also responsible for The Town), Blood Father is directed by French helmer Jean-François Richet who is best known for his mediocre remake of [Continued ...] »
"People get caught when they make mistakes... You stick with me, I'll give you everything I got." Lionsgate has premiered a new trailer for the gritty action thriller Blood Father, from French director Jean-François Richet (of the Assault on Precinct 13 remake, Mesrine Part 1 & Mesrine Part 2: Public Enemy #1), starring Mel Gibson as an ex-con badass who goes crazy trying to save his daughter, played by Erin Moriarty. The first trailer looked pretty good, this one is even better, almost like Taken meets John Wick set in the deep South. Hopefully the action is just as good as those films. Also starring William H. Macy, Thomas Mann, Elisabeth Röhm, Diego Luna & Dale Dickey. I might actually have to see this. Fire it up below. Here's the new official trailer (+ poster) for Jean-François Richet's Blood Father, direct from YouTube: After her drug kingpin boyfriend frames her for stealing a fortune in cartel cash, »

Lionsgate has released the second trailer for Jean-Francois Richet’s upcoming action thriller Blood Father starring Mel Gibson, which reveals a little bit more of the plot, and more of the action. Check it out here…
After her drug kingpin boyfriend frames her for stealing a fortune in cartel cash, 18 year old Lydia goes on the run, with only one ally in this whole wide world: her perennial screw-up of a dad, John Link, who’s been a drunk, a drug addict, a motorcycle outlaw, and a convict in his time, and now is determined to keep his little girl from harm and, for once in his life, do the right thing…

Set in an almost post-apocalyptic desert setting, reminiscent of Gibson’s 1979 action-thriller “Mad Max,” Gibson will fight to the death to protect his daughter. The film also stars William H. Macy, Michael Parks and is penned by Peter Craig.
