Emmy Predictions 2017: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie

12 June 2017 5:28 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Year’s Winner: Regina King, “American Crime

Still Eligible: Yes.

Hot Streak: Regina King won two years in a row for her roles in “American Crime.” ABC cancelled the well-reviewed but low-rated anthology series after its third season.

Fun Fact: No one has won more than twice in this category, though Kathy Bates holds the record for most nominations with seven total nods.

Perhaps the most intriguing competition within this category is internal. “Big Little Lies” offers a few options in supporting actresses, primarily Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley. Dern is a five-time nominee (and two-time Oscar nominee) and beloved within the community. (She’s reportedly up for the presidency of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.) Woodley could’ve been positioned as a lead, given her role’s prominence, and that could work for or against her in this category.

Summer TV Preview: 20 New and Returning Comedies Worth Watching

6 June 2017 8:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Television used to take a breather during the summer, letting audiences focus instead on intermittent relaxation, sun-drenched weekends, various fruit-based drinks and more life beyond the screen.

But there’s no such thing as summer vacation any more in TV land. Not only are plenty of spring series continuing into the summer (or even the fall, in the case of “Twin Peaks”), but the broadcast and cable networks, plus the streaming services, have a jam-packed lineup of new shows waiting in the wings.

In other words, put away your swimsuit. You won’t be needing it — there’s too much to watch. As part of IndieWire’s annual tradition to highlight the best of what television has to offer in the summer months, our team has lined up highlights of the best new and returning programs. Crank up the AC, pull down the blinds and dig in.

Cannes Review: ‘Based on a True Story’ is an Uninspired Psychological Thriller from Roman Polanski

28 May 2017 7:09 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A psychological thriller directed by Roman Polanski and co-written by Polanski and Olivier Assayas – elevator pitches don’t get much more promising than that. Sadly, the lackluster outcome proves there’s no guaranteed recipe for success. Based on a True Story, adapted from the prize-winning novel by Delphine de Vigan, revisits territory Polanski has mined time and again over the course of his long career. Perhaps too many times, as the film feels like the work of an author thoroughly bored with his material, a sentiment impossible not to share as a viewer.

Delphine (Emmanuelle Seigner) is a successful author who has just published a book that draws from her mother’s experience with mental illness. At a book signing, she meets Her (Eva Green – the press notes state her character is actually called Elle, as in the French original, whereas the English subtitles at the Cannes premiere put it as “Her… »

Meryl Streep, Judith Light, Lena Dunham, More Tell Sheila Nevins’ Stories in New Audiobook

24 May 2017 6:38 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“It was easier to hear myself through someone else’s voice,” says Sheila Nevins, president of HBO Documentary Films and first-time author of the well-received collection of short stories, “You Don’t Look Your Age… and Other Fairy Tales.” A New York Times bestseller released earlier this month, the audiobook features such boldfaced names as Meryl Streep, Glenn Close, Gloria Vanderbilt, Lena DunhamKathy Bates, Rosie O’Donnell, Katie Couric, and RuPaul, to name a few.

Each chapter, its own contained story about topics both amusing and heart-wrenching — the loss of a loved one or animal, learning your child has Tourette’s, deciding to get a facelift — is paired with a performer, as it were. Nevins, who recruited and paid for the recordings herself, describes how things came together naturally, sometimes surprisingly.

Real-Life Jack Dawson Relative Sues James Cameron Over Titanic

22 May 2017 1:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

James Cameron is being sued by an ex-"yacht master" who claims that he is the inspiration for Titanic lead character Jack Dawson. What do you do to celebrate the 20th anniversary for one of the most successful movies of all time? Maybe re-watch the movie in theaters again or try and reenact some of the most famous scenes. No? How about watch Celine Dion perform "My Heart Will Go On" at the Billboard Music Awards? No again. The correct answer to that question is to sue James Cameron for stealing your life stories and demand $300 million dollars to ease your pain and suffering that the blockbuster movie caused you. I was way off.

According to TMZ, Florida's (of course it's Florida) Stephen Cummings is alleging that James Cameron's fictional love story on the sinking Titanic is in actuality a non-fiction story. Cummings is claiming that James Cameron overheard »

5 Movies You Didn't Know Came From Stephen King

19 May 2017 11:20 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Like it or not, you can't throw a rock in the cinematic universe without hitting a Stephen King book adaptation. Many of the best horror movies of all time originated in the brain of King, from Stanley Kubrick's mindf*ck, The Shining, to Misery, a horror movie so exceptional that it earned Kathy Bates an Oscar. But we can't just stop there. Did you know King has also written quite a few books outside the horror realm, and some have been adapted into wildly and critically acclaimed films? We're leaving the scary movies behind to give you a different kind of surprise twist. »

Exclusive: How Emily Hampshire's Breakout TV Roles Are Messing Up Her Dating Life

18 May 2017 8:20 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Sometimes Emily Hampshire slips into character during dates.

Things get awkward, the Canadian actress tells Et, when her courter suddenly realizes that she's not Stevie Budd, the deadpan, buttoned-up motel clerk she hilariously portrays on Pop TV's Schitt's Creek, which just finished airing a critically acclaimed third season earlier this year. In fact, Hampshire, who frequently breaks into uproarious giggle fits during our freewheeling interview, couldn't be more infectiously giddy and refreshingly forthcoming.

"I feel bad that I'm not Stevie for them, that I'm not as cool as Stevie," the 35-year-old actress says. "They meet me and they're like, 'Oh, you're way more animated than Stevie is.' I can hear the disappointment in their voice."

That's when, she acknowledges, "I try to overcompensate for not being Stevie."

So then they get Jennifer Goines, the brainy but unhinged heroine she plays on Syfy's 12 Monkeys. If you know Jennifer, you know this means Hampshire's dates end with »

See Full Gallery Here

Jessica Chastain, Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), Natalie Portman and the so-hot-right-now Jacob Tremblay all feature in the moody first pics for The Death and Life Of John F. DonovanXavier Dolan’s star-studded drama that’s eyeing a debut on fall’s festival circuit.

Coming to us by way of Collider, the striking, beautifully composed images also shine the spotlight on Taylor Kitsch, Kathy Bates, Susan Sarandon, Nicholas Hoult, and Westworld‘s Thandie Newton. At the crux of John F. Donovan, though, is Kit Harington’s American TV star.

Riding high in his late 20s, Harington’s life and career are called into question amid allegations of his purported correspondence with Rupert Turner (Tremblay), an 11-year-old actor living with his mother on the other side of the pond. That saga begins in the early 2000s, though we understand The Death and Life Of John F. Donovan »

Author: Scott Davis

While acclaimed filmmaker Xavier Dolan isn’t heading to next week’s Cannes Film Festival with his new film, the first slew of images for his latest effort, The Death and Life of John F.

Collider has revealed a batch of first look images for Xavier Dolan’s English language debut The Death and Life of John F. Donovan featuring Kit Harington, Kathy Bates, Susan Sarandon, Jessica Chastain, Jacob Tremblay, Natalie Portman, Jared Keeso, Susie Almgren; take a look below…

Meanwhile, speaking to the site, the director discussed the themes of the upcoming drama and the effect of social media on modern society:

“When editing, [during a lengthier shooting break] it became clear that the heart of this film would be the mother-son relationships,” Dolan said. “And you, know that realization didn’t bother me. I could spend the rest of my life talking about mothers and sons and still be making a completely different movie than the last. It’s the story of a child who worships an actor, Kit’s the fictional hero, and my movie and [Hellsome] is built around specific tropes of American cinema, such as a superhero and a villain. »
