Emmys cliffhanger: Will Viola Davis be first African American to win Best Drama Actress?

20 May 2015 12:27 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Viola Davis is poised to make Emmys history for her starring role in the freshman hit "How to Get Away with Murder." The two-time Oscar nominee ("Doubt," "The Help") and Tony winner ("Fences") sits atop our Best Drama Actress prediction chart. If she prevails, she will be the first African American to win this award.  -Break- Davis has the votes of six of our seven Emmy Experts as well as five of our seven Editors, 13 of the Top 24 Users (those two dozen folks who did the best predicting last year's nominations) and two-thirds of all Users. All of that support translates into leading odds of 10/3. Her closest rival is Golden Globes champ Robin Wright for the third season of "House of Cards." With the votes of one Editor, 6 of the Top 24 and 15% of all Users, she has odds of 9/2. In third place is another past Oscar nominee, Taraji P. Henson »

Ten Weddings and No Funerals: The Greatest Cinematic Nuptials

18 May 2015 5:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Alex Simon

There are few rituals in life more chaotic, confounding and magical than the wedding. Appropriately, marriages have provided the backdrop for many a story spun through the ages. Whether it’s sending out multitudes of wedding invitations, choosing the right dress, or whether to seat Aunt Mabel next to her second or fifth ex-husband at the reception, weddings both in life and on film are almost always guaranteed to bring forth a surge of emotions. Below are a few of our favorite cinematic nuptials:

1. The Searchers (1956)

John Ford’s western masterpiece is full of many iconic moments, not the least of which is one of the screen’s greatest knock-down, drag-out fights between Jeffrey Hunter and Ken Curtis for the hand of comely Vera Miles. Martin Scorsese loved this scene so much, he paid homage by having his characters watch it in Mean Streets (1973).

2. Rachel Getting Married »

Naomi Grossman Teases "American Horror Story: Hotel" Return, Shows Off New 'Do

17 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Pepper the Pinhead no more! "American Horror Story" star Naomi Grossman was spotted out in Los Angeles looking very different from her small-screen counterpart. The actress, who was required to shave her head for two season of the hit series and sport a ton of prosthetics, was nearly unrecognizable on the red carpet at the 3rd Annual Reality TV Awards. Sporting a red, off the shoulder evening dress and gold accessories, Grossman looked great -- while also rocking a noticeably longer 'do. “I keep texting my stylist, like ‘What do you think, should we do streaks? Highlights next? Do you like the color? What do you think, Robin Wright Penn or shaggy rocker?’ and he’s like ‘Just hold off a minute, just get hair first,'" Grossman told toofab's Candice Brock on the red carpet. "I’m so excited; I actually have like hair to do something with!” While »

'House of Cards' Boss: "It's Surreal" that President Obama Likes The Show

8 May 2015 2:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Pro tip: Don't bother asking Beau Willimon what he's planning for season four of Netflix's juggernaut drama House of Cards. "I'm not going to say anything, even about what we're exploring," Willimon tells The Hollywood Reporter. "We have a smart audience and they already have ideas about what might happen in season four." What Willimon is wiling to reflect upon is three seasons of exploring one of the darkest and most unpredictable marriages depicted on television — that between newly minted Potus Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and his spouse, Claire (Robin Wright). "The shape that that marriage has taken, the

Beau Willimon and Kevin Spacey Tease 'House of Cards' Season 4, Judge You For Liking Frank and Claire Too Much

7 May 2015 9:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Beau Willimon is an emotive individual, unless you get to talking about the next season of "House of Cards." Even if he's as secretive toward spoilers as J.J. Abrams' with "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," the talkative creator and showrunner of Netflix's flagship original series isn't afraid to dig into the content you've already seen. In fact, he'll even call you out for liking Frank and Claire a little too much. At a Fyc post-screening Q&A for "House of Cards" in late April, moderator Jenelle Riley mentioned that she "can't tell you how many people have told me they wish they had a relationship like the Underwoods." As the audience started to chuckle at the idea of couples being envious of a murderer and his willing accomplice, Willimon expressed his amazement. "God, that's so fucked up." "Sometimes I can't believe you're a writer," Robin Wright responded. "It's not 'unconventional. »

3D in the 21st Century. "Beowulf": Who’s Afraid of The Volume?

4 May 2015 6:58 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

"The difference between traditional and technical images, then, would be this: the first are observations of objects, the second computations of concepts. The first arise through depiction, the second through a peculiar hallucinatory power that has lost its faith in rules." —Vilém Flusser, "Into the Universe of Technical Images" Lately I often find myself, usually in squalid municipal airport bars in Douglas, Arizona or Butte, Montana, having the following exchange:q: “Is there anything you don’t hate about the movies?”A: “Yeah. Bob Zemeckis.”  Which seems like, I guess, an indefensible position, now that he’s burned through the brave sordid purgatory of his infamous mo-cap period and not quite gnawed his way out. Ah, the thankless fate of the pioneer. History will absolve you, Robert. But, alas, here’s Beowulf. The most interesting filmmaker of his time, Zemeckis’s 2007 fulminant data explosion & puppet show got some stupid mixed reviews when it came out. »

House of Cards Boss Knows Some of You Didn't Love Season Three—Here's What That Means for Season Four

28 April 2015 12:05 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If you haven't watched all of season three of Netflix's House of Cards, be gone! Spoilers ahead, so go watch now, Ok? House of Cards is gearing up to start production on season four and executive producer Beau Willimon wants you fans to know: He does listen to your feedback. Every fan will tell you House of Cards has some of the best writing on television, and season three was no different. However, the writers' approach to this storyline arc, which focused more on the powerhouse (but seriously flawed) marriage of President Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) was markedly changed in tone, and Willimon knows the reaction was somewhat divided.

Charlize Theron and Sean Penn are quickly becoming one of Hollywood's hottest couples, and now, we're finally learning more about how their relationship began. "We’ve been friends for 20 years," Theron tells Esquire in the cover story for the May issue. "He was married, I was in a long-term relationship, our spouses — not regularly, but we were in each other’s lives." "I think our friendship stemmed from mutual respect — more on my end, because I really didn’t have a body of work 20 years ago, but my love and passion for making films — that was our common ground," she continues. The "Mad Max: Fury Road" star also reveals that she didn't think her romance with the 54-year-old actor would get so serious. "I think that for both of us there was never a moment where we thought that this—what we have today—would ever even be a possibility. »
