Amy Adams Is Always a Nominee and Never a Winner at the Oscars — Will That Ever Change?

14 November 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Arrival’ (Courtesy: Jan Thijs/Paramount Pictures)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

You might be surprised that one of today’s biggest actresses, Amy Adams, has never won an Oscar. Despite being nominated five times in the timespan of a decade, the 42-year-old has been denied in both the best actress and best supporting actress categories — but is she alone among her peers when looking at history?

The talented redhead was nominated for best supporting actress four times — for Junebug (2005), Doubt (2008), The Fighter (2010), and The Master (2013) — before snagging a best actress nomination for American Hustle (2014). This year, Adams is considered by Scott Feinberg to be a major threat for the best actress category this year thanks to her work in Arrival (though Nocturnal Animals could garner attention, too).

Over the course of Oscar history, there have been exactly a dozen other actresses who — between the best actress and best supporting actress »

Newswire: Penelope Cruz has also booked a ticket for Murder On The Orient Express

13 November 2016 5:57 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Kenneth Branagh’s Murder On The Orient Express is quickly filling up with more and more famous passengers. Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley, Michael Peña, Judi Dench, Josh Gad, and Branagh himself (who is both directing and playing Hercule Poirot) have already claimed their seats, and now Deadline is reporting that Penelope Cruz has also stepped onto this metaphorical train car with a ticket in hand. Like the original Agatha Christie novel, this movie version will concern a businessman (Depp, apparently) getting murdered on a train and the many strangers onboard who could’ve done it. We don’t have very many specific details beyond that, including who Cruz might be playing, but it’s a pretty iconic-yet-straightforward story. We can’t imagine this version will differ too much from the others beyond the aforementioned famous passengers. »

Just when you thought that the ensemble set to bring Murder on the Orient Express to the big screen couldn’t get any better, in struts Penelope Cruz. That’s according to Deadline, who tell us that the gorgeous actress is now set to join Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley, Michael Pena, Judi Dench and Josh Gad in Kenneth Branagh‘s upcoming adaptation.

Based on the beloved 1934 novel by Agatha Christie, the film tells the story of “an American businessman who’s murdered aboard the titular train and the investigator that tries to solve the murder, finding out eventually that 13 people all had something to do with the murder victim.”

Given that this is one of Christie’s most celebrated works, and that it was already adapted into an excellent movie back in 1974 by Sidney Lumet, most people are already pretty familiar with the events that take place. Still, »

Camilla Parker Bowles babysits Prince George on Tracey Ullman’s Show

On this episode of Tracey Ullman’s Show the Brit comic and impersonator has Judi Dench causing trouble in a hotel, Angela Merkel bursting into song and Camilla Parker Bowles babysitting Prince George. A shotgun wielding Duchess of Cornwall asks young Prince George whether he wants to “stick a horse’s uterus back in or to drown a kitten in a barrel.” You have to wonder if this dead-on impression is not too far from the truth! It ends with Camilla holding a ceremonial mace and advising George that she’s “not bloody Yoda!” Also tonight the German chancellor shows her lighter side as she sings for her staff...read more »

‘The Crown’ Receives a Royal Welcome in Britain

4 November 2016 11:24 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London – “The Crown,” the glossy, costly Netflix series about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II that launched Friday, has received a mostly regal cheer from British critics, although almost all have their quibbles.

The staunchly royalist Telegraph newspaper called the show “magnificent,” while the equally staunchly republican Guardian declared that “Netflix can rest assured that its £100-million [$125-million] gamble has paid off. This first series, about good old British phlegm from first to last, is the service’s crowning achievement so far.”

There were some reservations over the slow unfolding of the story of Princess Elizabeth’s ascension to the throne after the death of her father, King George VI. London’s Evening Standard complained that “the plot moves at a glacial pace, with half-defrosted royals bumbling carelessly through matters of historical significance while polite, undynamic onlookers mumble rhubarb,” but in the end, “like the monarchy, it shouldn’t work, but it does.” The »

Tracey Ullman’s Show Season 1 Review

29 October 2016 8:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In the ‘80s, chameleonic comedienne extraordinaire Tracey Ullman made her first TV appearances on a couple of British sketch shows and a sitcom before emigrating to the States, where she took her career to the next level by creating a handful of successful, critically acclaimed comedy programs, including introducing the world to the now-iconic Simpsons characters, and appearing in several major motion pictures.

After thirty years away from British TV, Ullman returned to her roots earlier this year with a new series, Tracey Ullman’s Show, which hits the Us via HBO this week. It’s a sketch-comedy ode to the quirks, follies, national treasures and social controversies that define the Britain of today, fuelled almost solely by the veteran entertainer’s impeccable comedic gifts. Her talents as a performer are beyond question, but the humor does feel a bit dated and not provocative enough for American audiences, especially when »

Comedian Tracey Ullman Explains Why She’d ‘Love to Soften’ David Letterman’s Beard

Grab the tissues — Tracey Ullman is about to make you cry … tears of laughter!

Speaking with People Now, the 56-year-old actress opened up about her recent run-in with Jerry Seinfeld, seeing David Letterman again, experiencing Rubert Grint‘s very own ice cream truck (yes, he has one of those), and impersonating Judi Dench in her new HBO series, The Tracey Ullman Show.

TV Review: ‘Tracey Ullman’s Show’ on HBO

28 October 2016 2:08 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In some ways, Tracey Ullman’s new sketch comedy show has much in common with her previous ventures. Like 1987’s “The Tracey Ullman Show,” 1996’s “Tracey Takes On…” and 2008’s “Tracey Ullman’s State of the Union,” the HBO series debuting tonight features her trying on a wide range of roles, some recurring, some just for a minute or two. As is characteristic of her work, the sketches — usually quite short segments — are interspersed with surprisingly skillful musical numbers where Ullman sings and dances. And of course, like all of those shows, “Tracey Ullman’s Show” has her name on it — a nod to her brand and her creative control.

But there is one major difference: “Tracey Ullman’s Show,” a coproduction between HBO and the BBC, is decidedly British — almost incomprehensibly British, to the average American. Rather than take the issue-oriented approach of “Tracey Takes On…” or the American-exploration approach of “State of the Union,” “Tracey Ullman »

Tracey Ullman Says Her New HBO Sketch Series is the Antidote to TV’s Rash of Bleak Comedies

28 October 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Tracey Ullman just can’t help herself.

Every few years, the comedian has the urge to create another sketch comedy TV show. Her latest effort, BBC’s “Tracey Ullman’s Show,” arrives stateside Friday night on HBO.

Fans of Fox’s “Tracey Ullman Show,” HBO’s “Tracey Takes On” and Showtime’s “Tracey Ullman’s State of the Union” will find all the hallmarks of Ullman’s series: Spot-on impersonations, quirky original characters and some song and dance.

“I just can’t be one person, it’s ridiculous,” Ullman told IndieWire. “I just love this [sketch comedy] form, and every seven years or so it seems, I get it together and I impersonate the age group around me that gets old with me. I enjoy being different people.”

Unlike those past shows, “Tracey Ullman’s Show” was produced in the U.K. for British audiences. It was Ullman’s first BBC project in 30 years. »

Dutch actor Marwan Kenzari, star of Ben-Hur, The Promise and Universal’s 2017 redo of The Mummy, has hopped aboard Fox’s Murder on the Orient Express remake.

The Hollywood Reporter has the news, confirming that Kenzari has landed the role of the French conductor. He’s by no means the only one to secure his seat on Kenneth Branagh’s Orient Express, after Fox’s casting spree brought in a eclectic mix of Hollywood talent including Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley, Johnny Depp, Michael Pena, Josh Gad, Broadway star Leslie Odom Jr. and Judi Dench. Branagh, meanwhile, takes point as Hercule Poirot, the detective tasked with solving the nerve-wracking mystery at hand.
