Emmy Awards: Five Predictions You Can Take to the Bank

6 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Here’s a safe prediction: The Emmy Award nominations will elicit plenty of disgruntlement, along the lines of “What? No nomination for [fill in name of your favorite show here]? Those Emmy voters have their heads up their butts.”

The Internet has helped magnify these voices, creating a mini-industry around the disappointment (at best) and eruptions of anger (at worst) over award balloting, along with the simplistic charges that every overlooked show or performer has been “snubbed” by the collected members of the Television Academy.

The “snubs” argument notwithstanding, the Emmys do harbor some collective and historic biases, which help explain why certain kinds of programs and actors fare better than others. So while most of this week will be spent trying to anticipate who might land nominations at the crack of dawn West Coast time on July 10 — Variety will be in countdown mode this week with prognosticating posts rolling out starting Monday on top program categories — here »

Eli Wallach, ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ Star, Dies at 98

24 June 2014 10:07 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tony- and Emmy-winning actor Eli Wallach, a major proponent of “the Method” style of acting best known for his starring role in Elia Kazan’s film “Baby Doll” and for his role as villain Tuco in iconic spaghetti Western “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” died on Tuesday, according to the New York Times. He was 98.

On the bigscreen Wallach had few turns as a leading man, but none was as strong as his first starring role in 1956’s “Baby Doll,” in which he played a leering cotton gin owner intent on seducing the virgin bride (Carroll Baker) of his business rival (Karl Malden). But he appeared in more than 80 films, offering colorful turns in character roles in movies such as “The Magnificent Seven,” “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” “Nuts,” “Lord Jim,” “The Misfits” and “The Two Jakes.”

Allison Janney, Orange Is The New Black And Fargo Among Winners At 2014 Critics’ Choice Television Awards

20 June 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first major awards ceremony honoring this past year’s accomplishments on the small screen took place last night as Cedric the Entertainer hosted the 2014 Critics’ Choice Television Awards from the Beverly Hilton. I’ve always preferred the Critics’ Choice Awards to the Emmys, just because my views tend to line up more with the members of the Broadcast Television Journalists Association. This year was no different, as a number of highly deserving actors, actresses and shows were honored.

Allison Janney was the clear winner last night, taking home two Critics’ Choice TV Awards. The actress won Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series for her devastating work on Showtime’s Masters of Sex and also tied with Orange is the New Black actress Kate Mulgrew for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her performance as the title character on CBS’s Mom.

FX’s Fargo also had a great night, »

HBO, FX and Netflix Duke It Out At Critics' Choice TV Awards: Who Won?

19 June 2014 7:35 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Some of the biggest shows on television went head to head. Here's who came out on top.

All the hottest names in TV turned out for the 2014 Critics Choice Television Awards on June 19, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Cedric the Entertainer hosted the gala event presented by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, and the night was really a battle between two cable channels.

Premiere pay-cable network HBO had a whopping 18 nominations, but in a show of strength for a smaller cable channel, FX topped that with 19. Meanwhile, the big contenders for individual shows were the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory, the CBS drama The Good Wife, FX's crime dramedy Fargo, Showtime's drama series Masters Of Sex and HBO's The Normal Heart, all getting five noms each.

Also, Netflix struck a blow against the traditional television hierarchy with their original series Orange Is The New Black competing in several key categories.

Three Series Where Directors Excelled This TV Season

16 June 2014 8:34 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Masters of Sex’: Carrying a Cinematic Sensibility to the Small Screen

Michael Apted first found fame in 1964 as the director of “Seven Up,” a groundbreaking television documentary charting the lives of British children that has since spawned a veritable institution, each film revisiting the subjects seven years later (2012’s “56 Up” was the latest

So it’s a befitting progression that Apted, who also helmed the James Bond film “The World Is Not Enough” and the Jodie Foster starrer “Nell,” would find himself back in TV at this juncture in his career, this time directing episodes of Showtime’s “Masters of Sex,” a series about pioneering physician William Masters and his research partner Virginia

While Apted’s return to TV is pragmatic in part — “The sort of movies I grew up doing are not made anymore and it’s difficult to find a project that I want to do” — he »

23 Oddities and Oversights From This Year’s Emmy Ballots

10 June 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When it comes to the hunt for Emmy nominations, anything goes. Shameless is trying its luck as a comedy after three years of submitting into drama, and HBO made headlines in March when it threw True Detective into the drama-series competition, surprising everyone (and especially Breaking Bad!) who thought the close-ended mystery was headed for the miniseries category. As it turns out, there’s much, much more maneuvering going on. We parsed the official list of submitted entrants released Monday (Emmy nominees will be announced July 10) and found a slew of other surprising and creative attempts at a nomination, several curious omissions, and a few real head-scratchers. Here’s looking at you, Damian Lewis and Psych: The Musical.* In the grand tradition of Ellen Burstyn in Mrs. Harris, Bill Murray wants an Emmy for his less-than-a-minute guest appearance on Amazon’s Alpha House. Still, he cursed a lot, and probably »
