Hulu Announces Exclusive Streaming Rights To Fargo

19 December 2014 8:09 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

If you need to catch up on the best show of 2014, and Golden Globe nominee, and Emmy winner, Fargo, you’re going to have to look to Hulu.

I imagine Hulu knows what they’re doing, but I have to imagine this is a “watch again” hope they’re working with, because surely everyone who has any hope of wanting to see this one has already seen it. No one missed this, right? If you did, and I have no idea who I’m talking to now, do not miss your chance to watch it now. I can’t stop saying that I wish it ended a little better, but other than that this was an amazing television achievement, and one that was completely engrossing from start to finish.

Not only was it a treat to watch all the actors, who were all wonderful, but it was brilliantly refreshing to »

Jim Carrey Takes on New Comedy 'Deep Cover'

17 December 2014 5:12 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Coming off the success of Dumb and Dumber To, which has earned nearly $130 million worldwide in one month of release, Jim Carrey is teaming up again with Red Granite's Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland for a new comedy entitled Deep Cover. No plot details have been revealed at this time, but the project comes from an original pitch by writer Johnny Rosenthal. Jim Carrey will also produce alongside Michael Aguilar through their Some Kind of Garden production company.

Writer Johnny Rosenthal recently sold his pitch The Three Tenors to Lionsgate this summer, and he is also developing Iron Jack for Sony Pictures. The writer also wrote the script for Dimension's sequel Bad Santa 2, a project which star Billy Bob Thornton revealed back in October is still in development. Red Granite stepped up to finance Dumb and Dumber To after Warner Bros. pulled the plug on the sequel. The studio »

The 10 Best TV Comedies of 2014

16 December 2014 5:07 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sometimes great TV comedy makes you laugh so hard you cry. And sometimes it just makes you cry.

If one thing became entirely clear in 2014, it’s that traditional descriptors like “sit-com” are so last century. Defining what makes a small screen laffer is no longer cut and dry. Digital platforms like Netflix and Amazon are following in the footsteps of industry innovators like HBO and Showtime and shattering the barrier between drama and comedy — and the obvious winner in this genre revolution is the viewing audience.

That doesn’t mean there aren’t great examples of the classic multi-camera comedy format still on the air (our list includes two of them), or that trendy single camera shows can’t be non-stop joke machines (we’d argue both “Veep” and “Silicon Valley” place laughs over pathos in every episode). But let’s also thank the shows pushing the envelope to make TV comedy a riskier, »

The 10 Best TV Dramas of 2014

15 December 2014 1:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Blame “True Detective,” in part, which helped kick off 2014 in rousing fashion, but the blurred line between “limited series” and just plain old series has complicated the definition of a “drama.” But for the purposes of a year-end list, the two can coexist, encompassing any program presented on an episodic basis, even if the story offered closure.

By that measure, both “True Detective” and “Fargo” — the latter categorized as a miniseries for Emmy balloting — as well as Starz’s “The Missing” can join an array of dramas that, frankly, could easily fill a “top 20” list. But who on Earth has time to click through that?

Obviously, reducing the current age of drama to an arbitrary tally is going to overlook several heavy hitters, and the roster underwent considerable tinkering right down till the end. Series like “The Walking Dead,” “Mad Men” and “Downton Abbey” – -which all would have qualified in the past –- didn’t, »

30 Best TV Series of 2014

12 December 2014 9:27 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

10. The Leftovers

There have been a number of new and returning shows that have enthralled, horrified, excited, and caused numerous other emotional reactions among the viewing public. However no show, new or old, has left an impression as deep as that of HBO’s The Leftovers. While the series’ 10 episode first season ended its run in early September, its impact has lasted much longer, making it a strong entry in the list of the best shows of 2014.

The key strength of The Leftovers is its seeming disinterest in what caused the event at the center of the show. The series’ decision to focus on the effect rather than the cause not only sets it apart from nearly everything else on television, it also helps develop the show’s wide swath of characters. In addition, putting the disastrous event as the backdrop, rather than at the forefront, allows the audience to »

The (Business) Genius of Fargo

12 December 2014 6:17 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

On a creative level, there’s no denying how great this year’s Fargo mini-series was. Under the guide of Noah Hawley’s pen, Fargo filled out the world of the award-winning Coen Brothers film, adding depth to existing stories while telling an all-new, symbolically-rich story about the corruption of the soul in the presence of the devil (played wonderfully by Billy Bob Thornton, under the name Lorne Malvo). From beginning to end, Fargo was the most consistent show of 2014, putting other anthology series to shame with its mastery of tone and unique personality – and with the sixth episode, “Buridan’s A**”, delivering what is arguably the finest episode of TV in 2014 (though we could debate that one for a long time). Beyond the well-deserved critical praise, beyond the wonderfully-applied paradoxes each episode individually embodies, Fargo is a genius business decision by FX. With Fargo, FX gets to have all »

Announcing the 2015 Golden Globe Nominations

11 December 2014 9:15 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning, continuing this week's exciting slew of award nods after Wednesday's SAG Award nominees. There are way more movie nominations to go around this time, what with both the drama and musical/comedy categories, so even tohough there are a lot of the same names seen at the SAGs, there are still some new entrants to award season, like Selma and Big Eyes (though still no American Sniper or Unbroken). There are some surprises in the TV categories, however; while there are lots of repeat names from years past (and this year's Emmys), it's exciting to see Jane the Virgin (and its star, Gina Rodriguez) and Transparent up for Globes! The Globes air Jan. 11, so see everyone who's nominated here.

2015 Golden Globes nominees snubs and surprises: What happened to 'Unbroken?'

11 December 2014 9:13 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Thursday morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association woke every awards season addict up at the crack of dawn to announce the nominees for the 72nd Golden Globe Awards. For those following every step on the road to the Oscars, many of the nominations were predictable and safe. But even the HFPA goes off the rails sometimes, making bold and baffling choices that can shake up the race. Below, our look at some of the bigger snubs and surprises in both the film and television categories: Surprise: Everything "Annie" Sony Pictures is keeping the lid on reactions to its rejiggered musical remake, but early word suggests something… just fine. Either those vague reactions are seriously under-appreciating "Annie" or the upbeat, adorable showstopper struck the sappy HFPA voters right in their hearts. The organization didn't nominate Quvenzhané Wallis for her Oscar-approved "Beasts of the Southern Wild" performance, but they found room for »

Golden Globe Nominations: 26 Biggest Snubs and Surprises

11 December 2014 8:22 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. loves to nominate celebrities, but this year, voters left a few off the list — no Angelina Jolie for directing “Unbroken,” no Ben Affleck for “Gone Girl,” no Bradley Cooper for “American Sniper” and no Julia Roberts for HBO’s “The Normal Heart.” The Golden Globes voters, made up of fewer than 100 foreign journalists, don’t overlap with the Academy, but because their nominations are announced just days before the Oscars nominating window, they are an influential group in terms of giving performances a boost. And the big winners after Thursday morning’s announcement included Jake Gyllenhaal for “Nightcrawler,” Jennifer Aniston in “Cake,” David Oyelowo for “Selma” and “Birdman,” which landed more nominations than any other film (seven). On the TV side, the Globes proved to once again be the hippest awards show, by including freshman series like “Jane the Virgin,” “Silicon Valley” and “Transparent.”

It’s the Globes! Hardly any institution has benefitted more from the rise of the awards-season and the predominance of celebrity culture.
