The appeal of a guest role is obvious as an actor can often make the maximum impact in minimum screen time. That’s why previous winners love to drop in on other shows, such as Hank Azaria showing up on “Ray Donovan,” Michael J. Fox popping over to “The Good Wife” and Brad Garrett showing his dramatic range on “Law & Order: Svu.”
Last year, Reg E. Cathey took home the prize for his work on “House of Cards” after two nominations. He’s likely to receive another nomination for the role of Freddy, though his co-star Colm Feore could also figure into the mix.
There are certain shows that tend to do well time and again in the guest category. One is “The Good Wife,” which has a plethora of potential nominees, from the aforementioned Fox to Denis O’Hare and Blair Underwood, both involved in a powerful gun control episode. »

Robert Altman's filmography is undergoing what looks like a full retrospective through Criterion; even the 1975 title Nashville came out not long ago. This very successful later picture marks a revitalization of the director's career. It's sort of a Kafkaesque spin on Hail, »

Whether they’re peeping on cheating husbands or reeling in runaway daughters, the cinematic detective, popularized in the ’30s and ’40s, can always be relied upon for a witty line or a sock in the jaw. Often, the detective is a man alone, searching through dark alleys for invaluable clues to some labyrinthine mystery. The detective is often the only soul who will do whatever it takes, no matter how hopeless the circumstances may seem. As Raymond Chandler wrote: “Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean.” In the ’70s, the culture irrevocably changed, but the detective’s job stayed the same — if not perhaps a bit more complex.

CBS has released the trailers for the new shows debuting during the network’s 2016-17 season, including the upcoming revival of “Star Trek.” The first look teaser for the sci-fi series had no footage, but promised “new crews, new villains, new heroes, new worlds.”
Though the logo simply says “Star Trek,” Variety has learned that the series will have a more specific title to be unveiled at a later date. Later installments in the “Star Trek” television franchise had titles that differentiated them from the original series — “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Star Trek: Voyager,” and “Star Trek: Enterprise.”

I live in Los Angeles, and my residency here means that a lot of great film programming-- revival screenings, advance looks at upcoming releases and vital, fascinating glimpses at unheralded, unexpected cinema from around the world—is available to me on a week-by-week basis. But I’ve never been to Cannes. Toronto, Tribeca, New York, Venice, Berlin, Sundance, SXSW, these festivals are all events that I have yet to be lucky enough to attend, and I can reasonably expect that it’s probably going to stay that way for the foreseeable future. I never attended a film festival of any kind until I made my way to the outskirts of the Mojave Desert for the Lone Pine Film Festival in 2006, which was its own kind of grand adventure, even if it wasn’t exactly one for bumping shoulders with critics, stars and fanatics on the French Riviera.
