2014 Emmy Predictions: Best Drama Actor

7 April 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Here's our take on the best drama actor category, which is extremely crowded due to "True Detective" and its lead actors Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson competing here. Which could very well mean that the last two years of winners -- Damian Lewis ("Homeland") and Jeff Daniels ("The Newsroom") -- won't even get nominated this time around. Or maybe they will. But given Bryan Cranston, Kevin Spacey and Jon Hamm are also in the mix, it's gonna be tough. Below are predictions for best drama actor from both Indiewire Awards Editor Peter Knegt and Assistant TV Editor Ben Travers. Check back as they might very well change 'em up between now and July 10th. Check out predictions in all the categories here. Ben's predictions: 1. Matthew McConaughey, True Detective 2. Jon Hamm, Mad Men 3. Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad 4. Kevin Spacey, House of Cards 5. Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom 6. Damian Lewis, Homeland Spoiler: Woody Harrelson, »

Thanks to 'True Detective,' This Year's Emmy Race Is Going to Be Brutal

26 March 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

HBO just did the network version of a mic drop.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the premium cable outlet is planning on submitting the highly-acclaimed "True Detective" in the drama categories rather than miniseries at this year's Emmys.

It's a surprising move; with its eight-episode limited run, "True Detective" would likely have swept the miniseries categories (that's been FX's strategy with its anthology series "American Horror Story"). Instead, HBO is going for broke in the already-packed drama races. Perhaps the network felt like it'd been too long since it won the Best Drama trophy; the last time was in 2007 for "The Sopranos." Since then, HBO has bested by rivals Showtime and AMC.

This sets up a major showdown between "True Detective" and the final season of "Breaking Bad," as well as shows like "Mad Men," "Game of Thrones," "Homeland," and "House of Cards," and pits Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey against three-time Emmy winner Bryan Cranston, »

HBO Submitting True Detective As A Drama Series, Rather Than Miniseries At The Emmys

26 March 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Well, the 2014 Emmys just got very interesting. The general consensus around the water cooler seemed to be that two categories were all but guaranteed: Breaking Bad would win for Best Drama Series, and Bryan Cranston would win for Best Actor. The show’s final season was met with near universal praise, and what better way to honor it, and Heisenberg himself, than give it two more statues?

Unfortunately for AMC, it looks like their perfect Emmy night may be interrupted as True Detective is set to throw a Rush Cohle-sized wrench into their plans. HBO has announced that they won’t be submitting their crime thriller in the miniseries category, which it would undoubtedly dominate. Instead, they’re aiming for the fences and submitting the show as a drama series. 

That means it will (probably) go against such heavyweights as Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Homeland and House of Cards. »

'Shameless' Aims for Emmy Gold by Switching Consideration from Drama to Comedy

25 March 2014 3:19 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After three seasons without an Emmy nomination for Best Drama, Showtime's William H. Macy-starring "Shameless" has decided not to compete anymore -- as a drama. Showrunner and executive producer John Wells has decided his program has a better shot at garnering a nomination as a comedy and will thus submit the show in that category.  It doesn't sound like a bad bet. This year's Best Drama category will be as tight as ever, with perennial favorites "Mad Men," "Homeland," and "Downton Abbey" all in the mix as well as the last season of "Breaking Bad" and new sensation "House of Cards." "The Newsroom" -- which took home Best Actor for star Jeff Daniels last year -- will also be competing, as will "Game of Thrones," "Boardwalk Empire," "The Good Wife," and "Masters of Sex." That's a lot of competition. In the comedy category, "Shameless" will be going up against »

Universal shows first 'Fast and Furious 7' footage with Paul Walker and 'Minions'

25 March 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - 2013 was the biggest year at the box office for Universal Pictures. They had surprise hits like "The Purge," the studio's highest grossing individual movie ever with "Despicable Me 2," and "Fast and Furious 6" opened to a staggering $97.3 million. The year also ended on a sad note, however, with the unexpected passing of "Fast and Furious" star Paul Walker during a production break from the seventh installment of the franchise. The sequel was pushed from its 2014 to 2015 release date to deal with re-shoots necessitated by Walker's death and many wondered how the studio would position the action blockbuster at its 2014 CinemaCon presentation to the world's theater owners. They ended up taking the ultra conservative approach and stuck to business. The footage from "Fast and Furious 7" finds Dominic (Vin Diesel), Brian (Walker) and their crew in the middle of another adventure. What the job is this time around wasn't clear from the preview, »

CinemaCon 2014: First Look at Footage for ‘Dumb and Dumber To’

25 March 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The lovable dumb guys are back.

Universal Pictures premieres the first look footage at CinemaCon to the comedy sequel “Dumb and Dumber To.” The film continues Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne’s adventure set twenty years later after their original adventure to find Adele Pichlow.

Latino-Review was in attendance at CinemaCon watching and laughing at the hilarious footage.

The footage started with Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) visiting Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) in a hospital. With Lloyd sitting in a stupor-like state, he surprises Harry that he was pretending the past twenty years. However, they must first remove a urinary catheter from Lloyd. And the hilarious ensues with the removal.

The movie footage also revealed Harry’s long lost daughter he had twenty years ago, in which he finally discovered with a post card. The best friends then started to use their detective skills (or lack thereof) to find her. There »

Dumb and Dumber To is dumbing soon! At least that's what the teaser posters costars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels tweeted Friday say.

His costar answered back with his own snazzy poster showing off light-blue threads with a matching bow tie.

The 'Dumb and Dumber To' Posters Are Suitable Reminders of the First Movie

21 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sometimes it's easy to forget that this year brings a long overdue "Dumb and Dumber" sequel (titled, appropriately, "Dumb and Dumber To"), 20 years after the original. But in case this had slipped your mind, Universal has debuted a pair of teaser posters that, in the words of Vulture, are "pretty perfect."

Both posters feature a simple image: one of the garish tuxedoes that Lloyd (Jim Carrey) and Harry (Jeff Daniels) wore in the first movie, quite memorably. The posters are accompanied by two wonderfully chosen words: "Dumbing Soon." Yes.

According to the official plot synopsis, it features the two idiots looking for their long lost children "in the hope of gaining a new kidney." So it will maintain the road trip movie feel of the first film, with a whole bunch of additional nuttiness. Original writer/directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly are back (along with about sixteen other writers, who »

Two 'Dumb and Dumber To' Teaser Posters Suit Up

21 March 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Word from early test screenings is Dumb and Dumber To is good, but, of course, these are test screenings so just how much trust we can put in them is limited at best. However, I remain very interested in this movie as I really hope the Farrelly brothers can deliver given Dumb and Dumber is an absolutely hilarious comedy as far as I'm concerned. The Farrellys haven't exactly had the greatest track record thus far, but with the perceived excitement from both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as they return to play Harry and Lloyd it gives me confidence. Not to mention Cam Neely is also back as Sea Bass and even Brady Bluhm is returning as little Billy in 4C... pretty bird. Today the film's official website premiered a couple of teaser posters featuring a couple of recognizable items. Dumb and Dumber To hits theaters on November 14. »

Our dreams of a Dumb and Dumber sequel have been dashed and un-dashed over and over these last few years, but we can now safely say that it's happening and will come out on November 14, 2014. To further drive this home, Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey tweeted out a pair of perfect movie posters. They both read "Dumbing Soon," which ironically enough is a brilliant pun. »

It’s time to suit up, Harry and Lloyd-style.

Two new posters for Dumb and Dumber To have been unveiled, and the statement is simple: orange and blue tuxedos never go out of fashion.

Does this mean the iconic formalwear donned by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in the 1994 Farrelly Brothers comedy Dumb and Dumber will be worn in the sequel? In the new film, the dimwitted buddies reunite 20 years after their first adventure to find one of their long-lost children in the hope of gaining a new kidney. So yeah, we can see it — what better occasion to wear »

Mock-yeah-ing-yeah-bird-yeah... Here's the first two (or, to use the deliberately dumb spelling, 'first to') posters for Dumb and Dumber To, the long-awaited sequel to Dumb and Dumber. The posters are a neat little nod to the 1994 original - they're the suits worn by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels when they accidentally stumble upon a briefcase full of money and go on a spending spree. »
