‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Breaks the Emmy Awards Streaming Barrier, One of Several Records Shattered This Year

17 September 2017 8:34 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The streaming TV biz passed the ultimate Emmy threshold on Sunday night, as Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” made history.

“Handmaid’s Tale” picked up the win for outstanding drama series, which represents the first time a streaming service had one won of the top Emmy series prizes. It was just four years ago, in 2013, that Netflix became the first streaming platform to win an Emmy, as “House of Cards” picked up a handful of victories.

“Streaming has arrived, and we’re here to say what a wonderful journey,” said “Handmaid’s Tale” executive producer Warren Littlefield. Added exec producer Bruce Miller: “The way Hulu handled our show, they were bold and behind us and committed to making something interesting.”

The fact that Hulu was the first to land a top Emmy series prize, rather than Netflix, is a bit surprising, as Netflix came into this year’s »

‘Prick Up Your Ears’: Stephen Frears’ Lgbt Biopic Sets Itself Apart

1 September 2017 5:41 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“I was saying to my friend the other day that just proves being gay doesn’t change anything. Everybody has all the faults and failings of everybody else. A gay friend of mine said, ‘Just because I’m gay doesn’t mean I’m fabulous all the time.'”  – Alfred Molina, actor in Prick Up Your Ears

Many of today’s Lgbt films are hagiographies about great people in the international movement toward sexual equality. In film, adulation usually results in flat characters and boring scenes (see: The Imitation Game). In Stephen Frears’ groundbreaking Prick Up Your Ears — which Metrograph screens from September 1-7 for its 30th anniversary — Gary Oldman brings pioneer queer playwright Joe Orton to life, warts and all. Alfred Molina plays Joe’s long-time boyfriend, mentor, and murderer, Kenneth Halliwell.

The story is structured with flashbacks to Joe and Kenneth. Wallace Shawn plays real-life Orton biographer John Lahr, »

Emmy Ballots Revealed: Producers and Writers Secretly Share The Reasons Behind Their Picks

29 August 2017 2:37 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This may be the most unpredictable Emmy race in years, particularly on the drama side. “Stranger Things” and “Veep” lead the Emmy odds according to the prognosticators at Gold Derby, but don’t count out shows like “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Black-ish” and “Atlanta.” At least, that’s the takeaway from a handful of writers, producers and directors who agreed to anonymously share their Emmy ballots with IndieWire.

Not that this year’s picks were easy to make. “I watch a lot of TV,” said one writer. “And yet there is not a single category where I have seen every nominee. Seems impossible to judge — and crazy to think a winner is actually the best, rather than just the best of what most people have seen.”

That’s the high-class problem of Peak TV, and why outlets like HBO and Netflix spend handsomely on For Your Consideration campaigns. That’s »

‘Prick Up Your Ears’ at 30: Alfred Molina Reflects on Film

24 August 2017 7:04 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Thirty years after Stephen Frears’ “Prick Up Your Ears” first landed in theaters, the drama about Joe Orton’s meteoric rise to the top of the London theater scene and violent death, still feels fresh, vibrant, and transgressively sexy.

Orton scandalized playgoers with “Loot” and “Entertaining Mr. Sloane,” darkly comic dissections of the English class system that helped usher in a new era of permissiveness in popular culture. But his reign was short-lived. In 1967, the 34-year old Orton was bludgeoned to death by his lover and mentor, Kenneth Halliwell. Halliwell then committed suicide after washing down 22 Nembutal tablets with grapefruit juice.

Prick Up Your Ears” dramatizes the disintegration of their relationship. It also boasts star-making performances from Gary Oldman as Orton and Alfred Molina as Halliwell. In honor of the thirtieth anniversary, the film will screen at New York’s Metrograph Theatre from Sept. 1 through 7. Molina spoke to Variety about the movie’s legacy and Orton and »

Emmys 2017 Poll: Who Should Win for Supporting Actor, Miniseries/Movie?

24 August 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

A criminal mastermind, an abusive husband, a Hollywood studio executive… this year’s Emmy nominees for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie are truly a rogues’ gallery.

Two miniseries earned a pair of nominations each in this category: FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan scored nods for Alfred Molina, as director Robert Aldrich, and Stanley Tucci, as movie mogul Jack Warner. (Tucci already has a couple of acting Emmys on his shelf, by the way.) And HBO’s The Night Of landed nominations for Michael Kenneth Williams (a 2015 nominee for HBO’s Bessie), as sage inmate Freddy Knight, »

Doctor Who and tabloid rumours: when have they got it right?

23 August 2017 1:58 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Aug 24, 2017

When have tabloid rumours been spot on about Doctor Who, and when have they been, er, less accurate?

“Look Who's the Doc's new assistant!” On Tuesday, the Mirror's front page trumpeted an exclusive reveal that Bradley Walsh would be Jodie Whittaker's companion in the new series of Doctor Who.

See related  Game Of Thrones season 7 episode 6 questions answered Game Of Thrones season 7 episode 7 review: The Dragon And The Wolf

The one-time Sarah Jane Adventures guest star would be the first companion actor to have hosted a quiz show with the same name as a 1960s serial, but beyond trivia, the report has been fairly well received as far as we can see – Walsh is a decent actor, who's worked with incoming executive producer Chris Chibnall before on Law & Order UK, and a fun screen presence. But given the source, might it all be a load of bobbins? »

Every Episode of ‘Rick and Morty,’ Ranked

17 August 2017 9:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Rick and Morty” does things no other TV shows would dare to do. Even with the infinite possibilities of a portal gun, this is a show that regularly finds a way to reinvent its own rules and subvert expectations of what a comedy can achieve in half-hour increments.

So, in a constant quest to help “Rick and Morty” newbies find the ideal entry point into the series (and to prove to everyone the microverse car battery episode is vastly under-appreciated), we’ve separated out every installment of the show with a little bit of context to explain why each episode deserves its place in the show’s hierarchy.

Nobody stands up for Britons in the lower class trenches like the fierce, opinionated and outright brilliant Mike Leigh; his unusual writing and directing method yields terrific results in his first feature made for TV. And the early performances of Tim Roth, Phil Daniels and Gary Oldman should be the stuff of acting legend, ’80s style.

Co-Stars Compete in Lead Actress in a TV Movie/Limited Series Category

10 August 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the fifth episode of the FX limited series “Feud,” aptly titled “And the Winner Is … (The Oscars of 1963),” bitter rivals Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) go head-to-head at the Oscars. Never mind that Crawford wasn’t even nominated: She manages to steal the night by offering to accept the golden statue on behalf of the other lead actress nominees.

And now Lange and Sarandon find themselves nominated against each other in probably the most competitive category of the year: lead actress in a limited series or TV movie. But don’t draw any parallels to the actresses they played on screen; Lange assures us there are no real-life similarities. “I was so happy the day I saw the nominations and realized the six main actors in the piece were all nominated,” Lange says, referring not only to her and Sarandon, but also their supporting cast of Judy Davis, Jackie Hoffman »

Prick Up Your Ears review – Stephen Frears' terrific testament to murdered playwright Joe Orton

2 August 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Rereleased 50 years after Orton’s death, this Frears-directed 1987 biopic sees Gary Oldman and Alfred Molina in utterly convincing form

The title of this rereleased classic is the invention of Joe Orton’s biographer John Lahr, on whose book this is based: for a brief 60s moment, this brilliant young dramatist really did force London’s theatre world to listen to his outrageous and very tumescent wit. Then, after a grisly, gloomy murder-suicide, it was all over. Orton was bludgeoned to death 50 years ago by his partner, Kenneth Halliwell, apparently convulsed with jealous rage at Orton’s success, undiminished cottaging and ingratitude for the stability and mentorship that Halliwell had given him. (Maybe Kenneth was in his way Orton’s Bosie, or his vengeful Marquess of Queensberry, or both.)

Stephen Frears’ terrific 1987 movie – adapted by Alan Bennett from the Lahr book – is back in cinemas and Gary Oldman’s superb livewire »

The Top Five Alfred Molina Movie Roles of His Career

31 July 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Alfred Molina is one of those actors that can fill a supporting role like none other. His versatility makes it possible for him to fit into practically any genre, but we like him the best when he’s playing a bad guy. He has a smooth and controlled style that makes the audience stand up and take notice when he enters the scene. In fact, he’s so good that he has the power to deflect a bit of the spotlight off of the leading star in the film and occupy it fully, until he exists the scene. Here are the top

10 films to beat the 2017 franchise fatigue

31 July 2017 4:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Aug 1, 2017

Bored with massive films and special effects? Then here are 10 smaller movies well worth your consideration...

It's that time of year when we usually give you a list of films playing in cinemas during August, as the summer blockbuster season winds down, that will help cleanse your palate after all the tentpoles and sequels that have proliferated throughout the year so far. But to be honest, this summer has been so good to us, we're more refreshed than usual.

Even aside from originals like Edgar Wright's Baby Driver and Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, this year's blockbusters have been of an unusually high standard. Wonder Woman pulled the Dceu out of its critical nosedive, War For The Planet Of The Apes is a gorgeous and emotional conclusion to the reboot trilogy, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming proved that Marvel's ever expanding continuity is still going strong. »
