Julia Louis-Dreyfus Just Broke 3 Huge Emmys Records

20 September 2017 1:50 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Getty / Jason Laveris Everyone knows Game of Thrones is a record-breaking Emmy machine (the series has earned 38 statues, beating out Frasier as the most-won scripted show). But when it comes to individual actors, who's racked up the most gold? The honor just went to Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who won her seventh Emmy for Veep at this year's Emmys ceremony, giving her the title of most Emmys won by a single performer for one role. It's also her eighth total, which means she is tied with Cloris Leachman for most Emmys total. Leachman, who also has eight awards under her belt, has accumulated statuettes for a variety of projects over the years. Her first win was in 1973 for the TV movie A Brand New Life. She won again for two consecutive years for her role as Phyllis Lindstrom on Mary Tyler Moore, and in 1975 she double-dipped with a second award »

The Croods 2 Finally Gets a Release Date

19 September 2017 11:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

DreamWorks has firmed up some of their upcoming slate and it is a little surprising, for various reasons. Croods 2 is now set for release on September 18, 2020, and Spooky Jack is set for a September 17, 2021, release. Last year, it was reported that the studio canceled The Croods 2, despite the fact that the movie was a big financial success. For some reason, that has changed and now the sequel is on track for release in a few years.

The Croods was released in 2013 and made a very impressive $587.2 million worldwide. Even though it seemed, for whatever reason, they weren't going to do the sequel, DreamWorks Animation has had a change of heart and The Croods 2 is back on. Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Catherine Keener, Cloris Leachman and Clark Duke are all set to reprise their roles for the sequel, with Leslie Mann set to join the cast this time around. »

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Breaks the Emmy Awards Streaming Barrier, One of Several Records Shattered This Year

17 September 2017 8:34 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The streaming TV biz passed the ultimate Emmy threshold on Sunday night, as Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” made history.

“Handmaid’s Tale” picked up the win for outstanding drama series, which represents the first time a streaming service had one won of the top Emmy series prizes. It was just four years ago, in 2013, that Netflix became the first streaming platform to win an Emmy, as “House of Cards” picked up a handful of victories.

“Streaming has arrived, and we’re here to say what a wonderful journey,” said “Handmaid’s Tale” executive producer Warren Littlefield. Added exec producer Bruce Miller: “The way Hulu handled our show, they were bold and behind us and committed to making something interesting.”

The fact that Hulu was the first to land a top Emmy series prize, rather than Netflix, is a bit surprising, as Netflix came into this year’s »

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Makes Emmy History as Performer With Most Awards for Same Role

17 September 2017 7:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Julia Louis-Dreyfus won the comedy lead actress trophy for her role on “Veep” at the 69th Annual Emmys in Los Angeles, Calif.

Louis-Dreyfus began her acceptance speech by thanking the “fine, powerful, and funny ladies” in her category. “You are superb and I love you,” she said.

From the stage, she also took a jab at President Donald Trump. “We did have a whole storyline about an impeachment,” she said of the next season of “Veep,” “but we abandoned that because we were afraid someone else might get to it first.”

And with this win, it’s official that history has been made. This is Louis-Dreyfus’ sixth win for portraying former-Veep-turned-former-potus Selina Meyer on the HBO political comedy, which makes her the performer with the most Emmy awards for the same role. Last year she was tied for that title with Don Knotts and Candice Bergen, who had five Emmys for their roles on “The Andy Griffith Show »

The Number of Emmys Julia Louis-Dreyfus Has Won May Surprise You

14 September 2017 3:50 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If awards were handed out for best worst dancing, Julia Louis-Dreyfus would have an extra Emmy to add to her mantle. But even without the bonus statuette for Elaine Benes's epic moves, the former Seinfeld star has plenty of statuettes to her name. Last September, Louis-Dreyfus actually broke a record by earning her sixth Emmy for lead actress in a comedy and her eighth overall (including one for producing). Prior to that win, the actress had maintained a three-way tie with Candice Bergen and Mary Tyler Moore for most lead actress wins. Louis-Dreyfus starting racking up Emmys in 1996, when she won outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series for Seinfeld (she'd been nominated each year since 1992). Surprisingly, that was her only solo win for the sitcom; she was nominated seven times between 1992 and 1998. Her next win would be a full decade later for The New Adventures of Old Christine.

Emmys 2017: Who Will Win, Who Should Win?

7 September 2017 1:38 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Anyone have a crystal ball I can borrow?

Predicting the Emmys has never been harder — with the incumbents out of contention (see you next year, “Game of Thrones”), many of the top races are legitimately toss-ups. Complicating matters, too, are the new voting rules: Last year the Academy replaced the ranking system with a winner-take-all system — which led to delightfully surprising winners like Rami Malek (“Mr. Robot”) and Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”).

Does this mean that the Academy has finally shed its legacy habit of rewarding old standbys and new winners will be crowned yet again? We’ll find out for sure when the envelopes are opened on Sept. 17, but in the meantime, here are our predictions for who will win, who should win — and who’s poised to play spoiler.

Best Drama

Will win: “This Is Us” (NBC)

Should win: “The Handmaid’s Tale” (Hulu)

Spoiler: “Stranger Things” (Netflix)

It’s a tough call — you could »
