Does Shunning the Emmy Campaign Limelight Hurt a Nominee’s Chances?

20 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Out of sight, out of mind — but does that apply to Emmy campaigns?

Every year, Emmy hopefuls work the circuit by shaking hands and answering questions at endless events. But some keep a low profile, including this year’s nominees Frances McDormand, Amy Poehler, Kyle Chandler, Louis C.K. and Mo’Nique. Their reasons include work commitments and/or a tendency to avoid the media.

But awards pundits continually fret over how much the campaigning — or lack thereof — affects the outcome.

Last year, the teams from “Modern Family” and “Breaking Bad” seemed to be omnipresent — and both shows won Emmys. But “Sherlock’s” Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman were nearly invisible — and they won as well.

Campaigners want to make sure Academy of Television Arts & Sciences members see the work before they vote. That’s especially challenging with the Emmys, given the sheer number of categories, and nominees. As FX Networks »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Limited Series

20 August 2015 8:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Without "Fargo" or "True Detective" in the running, "Olive Kitteridge" is finally ready to sweep up some trophies. After playing second (or third) fiddle at this year's Golden Globe Awards, Frances McDormand and Lisa Cholodenko's HBO miniseries is looking to take the frontrunner position at the Emmys and never let it go. A few familiar faces — and a few new ones — stand in their way. "The Honorable Woman" will try to take advantage of its Globes' win to springboard ahead of "Olive," while "American Horror Story" has long been a favorite of the TV Academy. Both squared off with "Olive" at the Globes, and Maggie Gyllenhaal even managed to upset McDormand for Best Actress.

Winona Ryder, Oscar Isaac Praise David Simon’s Honest Storytelling at HBO’s ‘Show Me a Hero’ Premiere

12 August 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

David Simon — creator of “The Wire,” “Generation Kill” and “Treme” — was the toast of the evening at Tuesday’s New York premiere of HBO’s miniseries “Show Me a Hero,” which he exec produced and co-wrote with journalist William F. Zorzi. All eyes were on the filmmaker who many credited for revolutionizing TV over the last 20 years.

“David is one of the most important voices out there in the world,” Winona Ryder attested to Variety on the red carpet at the New York Times Building. “His storytelling is unlike anything else, and I really do believe he has changed television. He’s not afraid to tell the brutally honest injustices that are happening in the world. Because of his storytelling, he has changed my life and has opened my eyes to new things. I’m now more informed on issues because of him.”

It took Simon 14 years to bring “Show Me a Hero »

Emmy Race a Return to Form for Lead Actress Contenders

12 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

So many factors go into Emmy voting, nostalgia could easily be considered one of them. How great was it to see Claire Danes step into the leading role on “Homeland” after adoring her as a teen on “My So-Called Life?” When voters cast their ballots for Julia Louis-Dreyfus in “Veep,” they likely have fond memories of her time as Elaine Benes on “Seinfeld” — or maybe they appreciated her recent appearance as herself on “Inside Amy Schumer.” The same could be said of “Nurse Jackie” star Edie Falco, who won three Emmys for playing Carmela Soprano, or “The Comeback” queen Lisa Kudrow, who won in 1998 for “Friends.” Once you’re in the winner’s circle, you stand a better chance of being invited back.

And the smallscreen has long been a great place for actors, particularly women. If “new golden era” is becoming a tired phrase to describe the current TV landscape, »

10 August 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.

Whether The Good Dinosaur will best Inside Out remains to be seen, but the trailer is certainly full of all the elements that make for an entertaining animated family film. There’s the characters that kids can root for in Arlo and his human friend, as well as identify with if they tend to feel a little alone sometimes »

6 Jennifer Aniston movies that are actually good

7 August 2015 9:43 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We don't want to get involved in the whole 'Poor Jen' narrative - painting her like some kind of modern day Ophelia - but it's true that the recently married actress has struggled to replicate her success outside of Friends (not that's she's alone there).

But among the laboured romantic 'comedies' and dramas rank with the stench of pathos, Aniston has actually appeared in a few cinematic gems. We've searched out these tranquil islands in the sea of Metacritic reds and yellows:

Office Space

A cult comedy with a dark edge but soft heart, Mike 'Beavis & Butt-head' Judge's Office Space was a flop on release in 1999 but has rightly become a cult classic in the years since. Peter, Samir and Michael are three programmers stuck in an office job from hell, which only gets more hellish with the arrival of a pair of consultants looking to "downsize".

The Coen Brothers Take On Black Money

6 August 2015 11:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In modern cinema, the Coen Brothers are giants. Having created classic after classic, these filmmakers are now the stuff of legend – writing, directing and producing films that are among the most original and fascinating ever made, while inspiring new creative projects from others, such as the Fargo TV series. It is understandable, then, that the world jumps to attention when their new projects are announced. Today is no exception, as it is apparently the case that Warner Bros. has optioned the best-selling 1966 novel Black Money for the intimidating duo to adapt, with Joel Silver co-producing.

Black Money is the perfect match for Joel and Ethan Coen, whose body of work includes movies such as Miller’s Crossing, Barton Fink, Raising Arizona and O Brother Where Art Thou? Written by Ross MacDonald, it is a detective story featuring the private eye character Lew Archer, in a complex, layered plot that is darkly funny, »

Can Maggie Gyllenhaal reap an Emmy win for 'Honorable Woman'?

30 July 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Maggie Gyllenhaal is an Emmy underdog with 25/1 odds to win Best Movie/Limited Actress for her role as businesswoman Nessa Stein in the political thriller "The Honorable Woman," but are we underestimating her? We made that mistake at the Golden Globes, where she defied the odds and defeated two of her current Emmy rivals, Frances McDormand ("Olive Kitteridge") and Jessica Lange ("American Horror Story: Freak Show"). Can she do it again? -Break- Watch our chats with 'Honorable Woman' Emmy nominees Gyllenhaal, Hugo Blick The Emmys love Oscar-nominated movie stars. That would normally be an advantage for Gyllenhaal, who was recognized by the motion-picture academy with a Supporting Actress nod for "Crazy Heart" in 2009, but she happens to be in an Emmy contest where everyone is a past Oscar contender. In addition to past champs McDormand and Lange, Queen Latifah ("Bessie") and Felicity Huffman ("American Cr..." »

The Actors Who Could Have Starred In Films, But Didn’t

26 July 2015 3:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Wars famously takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, and this week we found out about a parallel universe of casting in the film series. Neil Calloway looks at the actors who didn’t star in films, but could have…

The news that Michael Jackson wanted to play Jar Jar Binks in the Star Wars prequels is bizarre, and I can’t quite decide whether he would have improved the character or completely ruined the franchise with his appearance. Perhaps the most interesting part is that Jackson wanted the character to be created with make up and prosthetics – he worked with make up genius Rick Baker on the video for Thriller – rather than the CGI preferred by Lucas. There are many, many issues with the Star Wars prequels, but one of them is the over reliance on computer effects on practical effects. So maybe »

Could 'Olive Kitteridge' sweep Emmys like 'Angels in America'?

23 July 2015 7:43 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Could "Olive Kitteridge" repeat the Emmys success of "Angels in America"? Easier said than done. "Angels" pulled off a typically unthinkable sweep on Emmy night in 2004, taking Best Miniseries, as well as writing, directing and all four acting prizes. Added to its four Creative Arts wins, that brought "Angels" to 11 victories total, at that point tying the record set by "Eleanor and Franklin" (1976) for the most wins for any program in a single year. (That record was later broken by the miniseries "John Adams" in 2008). -Break- Now "Olive Kitteridge" is nominated in all seven categories that "Angels" won during the 2004 telecast, and according to our current predictions, it's the frontrunner to win almost all of them. We give it best odds for Best Limited Series, Movie/Limited Actress (Frances McDormand), Movie/Limited Supporting Actor (Bill Murray), Movie/Limited Writing and Movie/Limit...' »

Pixar's The Good Dinosaur: full trailer

21 July 2015 11:05 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Inside Out arrives in UK cinemas, here's the trailer for Pixar's next: The Good Dinosaur...

British cinemas finally get to enjoy Pixar's stunning new film, Inside Out, this weekend. The movie, directed by Pete Docter and Ronnie del Carmen, is already surely a shoo-in for best animated feature at next year's Oscars, and is arguably one of the best films of this year full stop. It seems only another Pixar film could get in the way.

So then: as it turns out, Inside Out is not the only Pixar movie we're getting this year. Arriving this November is The Good Dinosaur, which itself promises to be something quite special. Now directed solely by Peter Sohn, the movie features the voice talents of Jeffrey Wright, Steve Zahn, Anna Paquin, Frances McDormand and Sam Elliot.

The film is based on the idea that the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs actually missed the Earth, »

A dinosaur is man's best friend in the new trailer for Pixar's The Good Dinosaur

21 July 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

I think we can all agree that dinosaurs are very cool. But would it still be cool if they were living amongst us? If the new trailer for Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur is anything to go by, then yes, it would be very cool. Not to mention adorable.

A full-length trailer was just released for Pixar’s next effort, The Good Dinosaur. The premise follows the idea that the asteroid that wiped out the dinos never actually hit Earth, allowing humans and mammals to evolve alongside dinosaurs. What we wouldn't give to spend a day in that world...

In the film, Arlo is a young Apatosaurus that is forced to face his fears after becoming lost in an unfamiliar landscape. He meets a small human boy that accompanies him on his journey through the wilderness, and they form the kind of adorable friendship that Pixar has made their hallmark. »

Meet your new favourite Pixar character: Watch the heart-stirring trailer for The Good Dinosaur

21 July 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

What if the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs had actually missed Earth? That's the question posed by Pixar's upcoming release The Good Dinosaur.

A new trailer for the adventure introduces Arlo the Apatosaurus, who embarks on his own journey of discovery when he makes an unlikely human friend after becoming orphaned and lost far away from home.

Arlo is voiced by 13-year-old actor Raymond Ochoa, with the supporting voice cast including Anna Paquin, Jeffrey Wright, Frances McDormand, Aj Buckley, Sam Elliott and Marcus Scribner.

The Good Dinosaur's long-awaited release comes after numerous behind-the-scenes setbacks, which included the replacement of Up director Bob Peterson with Peter Sohn.

Originally delayed from its November 2013 release date, the film was also given a new storyline and cast, with only McDormand remaining in her original role.

The Good Dinosaur will open in the Us on November 25 and November 27 in the UK. »
