Look for returning characters to dominate the category, with last year’s winner Hank Azaria likely to repeat his nom for his role as disgraced FBI Agent Ed Cochran in “Ray Donovan.” Beau Bridges should land his third consecutive nod for “Masters of Sex.” Mark Margolis was last nominated for playing Hector Salamanca on “Breaking Bad” in 2012, and that was with a minimum of dialogue, so he has a good shot for bringing a younger but no less terrifying Hector to “Better Call Saul.” Ben Mendelsohn previously won in the supporting category for “Bloodline” but this year he’s eligible as a guest star. year. And both Dylan Baker and Matthew Perry could earn nods for bringing their characters from “The Good Wife” to its spinoff “The Good Fight.”

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)
This week’s question: In honor of the Cannes Film Festival, the 70th edition of which starts this week, what is the best film to ever win the coveted Palme d’Or?
For a complete list of Palme d’Or winners, click here.
Erin Whitney (@Cinemabite), ScreenCrush
This question is impossible because I clearly haven’t seen all 40 Palme d’Or winners (it’s on my to do list, I swear). But I could easily say “Apocalypse Now,” “Paris, Texas,” “Taxi Driver,” “Amour,” or even “Pulp Fiction.” But since this is a personal question, I have to say “The Tree of Life.” No film has moved me »

If you haven't caught up yet, Their Finest is currently playing in UK cinemas and it's a gorgeous little love letter to perseverance through storytelling, set against the backdrop of a film production office at the British Ministry of Information during the Second World War. Based on Lissa Evans' novel, Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy play characters whose access to the film industry has been contingent on the global crisis that takes other young men away from such trifling matters, and it's a real joy to watch.
Among other things, the film got us thinking about other films about making films. We're not talking about documentaries, even though Hearts Of Darkness, the documentary about the making of Apocalypse Now, may be the greatest film about »

A surprise hit last year, Bad Moms picked up over $110m at the global box office off a modest budget. Headlined by Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn, one of the most notable features of the film, though, was how funny it was. Plus, it had last year’s finest end credits extra.
A Bad Dads spin-off movie was quickly put into the works, but Stx Entertainment has now opted to bring the Bad Moms back first. A wise move. Bad Moms Christmas, filming now ahead of its November release, has now added three new faces to play the moms of the Bad Moms. The three in question are Susan Sarandon, Cheryl Hines and Christine Baranski. Joining them too are new additions to the cast, Peter Gallagher and Justin Hartley.
Filming on STXfilms’ Bad Moms sequel kicks off in Atlanta,Georgia.
Filming on the summer 2016 breakout that grossed $183.9m worldwide has commenced in Atlanta, Georgia.
This time around, the bad moms receive a holiday visit from their own mothers as they rebel against the challenges and expectations of the Super Bowl for moms: Christmas.
Filming has begun on STXfilms' A Bad Moms Christmas, reuniting the dynamic team of Bad Moms, writers/directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, producer Suzanne Todd, and executive producers Bill Block and Mark Kamine.
Returning as the stars of A Bad Moms Christmas are the triple threat cast of Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn as Amy, Kiki and Carla. This time around, the bad moms receive a holiday visit from their own mothers, in new roles portrayed by Cheryl Hines (Kiki's mom), with Christine Baranski (Amy's mom) and Susan Sarandon (Carla's mom).
Also starring are returning cast members Jay Hernandez, David Walton and Wanda Sykes, alongside newcomers Peter Gallagher and Justin Hartley, who join these two generations of moms in the chaos of the holiday season.
Even bad moms have moms.
The sequel to the 2016 comedy “Bad Moms” has a Nov. 3 release date. Jon Lucas and Scott Moore are returning to direct from their own script with stars Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn reprising their characters. The film will be produced by Suzanne Todd and executive produced by Bill Block — the duo produced “Bad Moms.”
“Bad Moms,” which focused on over-stressed mothers, was produced for $20 million and took in more than $180 million worldwide when it was released earlier this year. In “A Bad Moms Christmas,” the trio must deal with the stresses of their own mothers visiting for the holidays.
