Emmys: Film stars well-repped on noms list<BR clear="none"/>

17 July 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Paul Newman and Peter O'Toole are associated more with the Oscars than with the Emmys, but both star names were right up there with a plethora of other big-screen acting monikers, including Anne Bancroft, Helen Mirren, James Woods and John Malkovich, on the Emmy nominations list. Industry executives and analysts say there's nothing new about motion picture talent hitting TV credit listings these days, but this year's roll call of international screen talent among the Emmy nominees appears to represent a high point in the history of longform TV production. HBO is clearly the pathfinder for big-screen names charting their way to the small screen. Chris Cooper and Maggie Smith are nominated for their roles in HBO's "My House in Umbria", and Helena Bonham Carter's name appears on the nominees list for HBO's "Live From Baghdad". Showtime is also a player in terms of luring high profile acting talent to television. Paul Newman appears on the nominees list for his role as Stage Manager in Showtime's presentation of Westport County Playhouse's "Our Town" with Exxon Mobil Masterpiece Theater. »

London theaters pump life into worn down West End

11 March 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

LONDON -- A recent visit to London's West End amply demonstrated that it still boasts a theatrical vitality and variety that its counterpart in New York can only envy. A serious theatergoer could choose among Brecht and Weill's The Threepenny Opera; Gilbert & Sullivan's HMS Pinafore, performed by the venerable D'Oyly Carte Opera Company at the theater where it originally premiered; Shakespeare's The Tempest and Macbeth; plays by August Strindberg, Salman Rushdie, Noel Coward, Mike Leigh and David Hare; and performers on the order of Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Maggie Smith, Derek Jacobi, Tom Courtenay, Ian McKellen and Janet McTeer. Thanks to the continued presence of such invaluable, government-funded institutions as the National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company, one could also take in a Jacobean drama (The Duchess of Malfi) and five obscure plays written during Shakespeare's time, including his own rediscovered work Edward II. (Shakespearean productions, by way of contrast, rarely show up on the Great White Way unless they're British imports or feature a TV star like Kelsey Grammer.) »
