30 Times Jane Fonda, Dolly Parton, and Lily Tomlin Were the 3 Best Friends Anyone Could Have

20 September 2017 6:45 AM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

One of the best moments from this year's Emmy Awards was the reunion between BFFs Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dolly Parton. The trio, who starred together in the iconic 1980 comedy 9 to 5, hit the stage to present the award for outstanding supporting actor in a limited series or movie and took a shot at our current president, saying, "In 1980, we refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot boss . . . and in 2017, we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot boss." RelatedJane Fonda Is 79 Years Old and on Her Way to Steal Your Man Needless to say, it was amazing to see these three together again: back in January, Dolly and Jane were supposed to link up to present Lily with a lifetime achievement award at the SAG Awards, but when Jane got sick, Dolly went it alone (and killed it).

Don’t worry, Dolly Parton; James Woods has your back. Actor and noted conservative Woods came to the defense of country-music legend Parton on Tuesday, after Trump supporters lashed out at her for a joke that was made while she was on stage at Sunday’s Emmys ceremony. Responding to pro-Trump commenters who expressed disappointment in Parton’s presence during the joke, Woods opined that Parton is “a very sweet person by nature” who was “caught off-guard” during the moment.

19 September 2017 5:45 AM, PDT | Look to the Stars | See recent Look to the Stars news »

The television industry, from Emmy presenters and nominees, to other TV industry members, helped raise funds to support their industry colleagues and friends who benefit from Mptf’s charitable programs and services such as financial assistance, crisis counseling, care giving support and of course the legendary retirement facility in Woodland Hills that is “home” to television and film veterans alike.

“The health and social service needs of our community continue to grow, especially during these last few years. The cost of delivering much-needed care can be overwhelming to Mptf’s resources, which makes events like the Evening Before more important now than ever,” said Jeffrey Katzenberg, »

Emmys 2017 Acceptance Speeches: Were Certain Winners Cut Off Too Soon? Analyzing the Numbers

18 September 2017 6:06 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One of the more eyebrow-raising moments of the 69th annual Emmy Awards came when Sterling K. Brown, accepting the award for Best Actor in a Drama (the first time the Emmy had gone to an African-American man since Andre Braugher in 1998, whom Brown name-checked), was cut off mid-speech. It’s a pattern familiar to those who watch awards shows, especially given that the award was one of the last of the night. But exactly how long had Brown been talking at that point? And how did the length of his speech compare to others of the evening?

IndieWire crunched the numbers and has the answers. We clocked the runtimes for each acceptance speech (as hosted on CBS’s official YouTube page), beginning our timer with the first word or “Ummmm” spoken into the microphone, listing them in ascending order of length. There’s no explicit pattern to why a speech »

Rob Sheffield on Emmys 2017: The Good, the Bad and the Sean Spicer Suck-Up

18 September 2017 10:13 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"This is TV's highest honor – us celebrating us," Stephen Colbert announced at the start of the 2017 Emmy Awards. "Tonight, we binge ourselves." It was a joke about smug self-congratulation probably intended to sound more ironic than it did. The Emmy ceremony, as always, was a night of the television world celebrating itself as the best Western civilization has to offer, not to mention an all-around swell bunch of people. The ego in the room was a marvel to behold – even when Seth MacFarlane wasn't onscreen. Colbert did his best with his Trump gags, »

‘Shame on the Emmys:’ Outrage Builds Over Stephen Colbert Letting Sean Spicer Laugh Off His White House Lies

18 September 2017 8:40 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Not everyone was laughing over former White House press secretary Sean Spicer‘s ostensibly comic cameo at the 2017 Emmys.

Many on Twitter are bashing Emmys producers for allowing Spicer to appear onstage alongside Stephen Colbert, where President Donald Trump‘s former spokesman cracked a joke about the crowd size at Sunday night’s show, saying, “This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period, both in person and around the world.”

Colbert, the Late Show host who, according to CNNMoney, was the brains behind the cameo, said he and his producers knew there would be blowback—and they were right. »

Emmys Review: Sleek, Sincere, but We’ve Still Got a Long Way to Go

17 September 2017 9:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

TV loves nothing more than sending viewers to a different dimension. So on Sunday night, CBS’ brisk, lively Emmy ceremony opened a portal to another world. It wasn’t the real world of TV, which still has miles to go when it comes to matters of representation, diversity and inclusion, but instead a place where the industry reassured itself that it was doing the work necessary to resist the worst of the present moment. And if part of that mindset was wishful thinking, well, it was nevertheless damnably difficult to resist.

As expected, there were many references to Donald Trump (and his lack of Emmys). And though Colbert’s opening monologue had some effective jabs, and now and then there was a subversive moment, the overall tone of the ceremony was rallying and earnest. There were a few references to the fact that it might be a little to early to engage in rampant self-congratulation: Bruce Miller, showrunner »

The Handmaid's TaleSaturday Night Live and Veep cleaned up at the 2017 Emmy Awards, befitting a three-hour ceremony that simmered with political outrage and proffered television as a haven for diversity, equality and opportunity – and perhaps an escape as well.

Host Stephen Colbert opened the show with a monologue packed with Trump burns, focusing specifically on the president's obsession with the Emmys and the fact that his long-running reality show, The Apprentice, never won. At the end of his speech, he introduced Trump's former Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, who rolled »

With Donald Trump in the White House and Stephen Colbert hosting the show, it’s no surprise this year’s Emmy Awards took a turn for the political. Acceptance speeches, the show’s opener and the bits in between — they all talked Trump, in terms both obvious and subtle. (Also, a former member of his administration showed up.)

‘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 »

Charlie Brooker Calls 2017 Too ‘on the Nose’ to Be ‘Black Mirror’ Episode While Accepting Emmy for ‘San Junipero’

17 September 2017 7:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Black Mirror: San Junipero” won the Primetime Emmy Award for best television movie Sunday night. The movie is the fourth episode of the third season of the Netflix anthology series “Black Mirror.”

Written by Charlie Brooker, the movie stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Mackenzie Davis. The speech was Brooker’s second the evening after winning the category for writing for a limited series, movie or drama as well.

“I have heard 2017 described as being trapped, like being trapped in one long unending ‘Black Mirror’ episode,” Brooker said. “But I like to think if I had written it, it wouldn’t be quite so on the nose with all this sort of Nazis and hate.”

He added, “‘San Junipero’ was a story about love and love will defeat hated, love will win. But it might need a bit of help.”

He then shared a somewhat absurd request: “So maybe if all the beautiful people in this auditorium could »
