The Ultimate Emmy Underdogs: Can Any One-Nomination Wonders Actually Win?

15 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Adventure Time

Nomination: Outstanding Short-Form Animated Program

Can It Win? Yes!

Why? A perennial nominee in the category, “Adventure Time” finally broke through and won just last year. As the defending champ, it’s definitely got a shot.

In an Ideal World: As much respect as we have for “Robot Chicken,” “Adventure Time” definitely deserves to win again — especially for the submitted episode, “The Hall of Egress.”

The Affair

Nomination: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, Maura Tierney

Can It Win? Not likely.

Why? Tierney was a surprise inclusion, even with a sterling season under her belt. Her best bet relies on the three nominated “Game of Thrones” actors knocking each other out, and we’re guessing HBO won’t let that happen.

In an Ideal World: Tierney would already have an Emmy — either for Season 1 of “The Affair” or “E.R.

‘Archer’ Season 8 Trailer Answers Season 7 Cliffhanger, Introduces ‘Dreamland’

22 July 2016 5:35 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Spoiler Warning: The below reveals details for “Archer” Season 8 as well as the Season 7 finale.]

The big question following “Archer” Season 7 was the one everyone wanted answered at the FX comedy’s Comic-Con panel Friday afternoon, and the producers & cast wasted no time in letting everyone know what’s next for Archer: “Dreamland.”

At the end of Season 7, it appeared as though Archer died while solving the season-long mystery surrounding Veronica Deane. But the trailer shown to the Comic-Con audience (and not yet available online) found Archer still alive, but in a coma.

That doesn’t mean the season is free from tragedy. Following the death of voice actor George Coe — who played Archer’s butler, Woodhouse — Adam Reed decided it best to end his character’s arc rather than permanently recast him. The trailer showed the “Archer” characters dressed in black, attending Woodhouse’s funeral — all of them except Archer, who was revealed to be stuck in a coma for the three months following his shooting (aka, »

Extended Comic-Con Clip For Trolls Targets Your Happy Place

21 July 2016 1:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

DreamWorks’ furry critters run rampant – and belt out a song or two – in today’s all-new clip for Trolls, the upcoming animation directed by the studio’s Shrek dream team, Mike Mitchell, Walt Dohrn and Gina Shay.

Hailing from San Diego Comic-Con, the extended snippet sheds light on Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake’s pint-sized protagonists, as they squabble under a blanket of stars. Timberlake, who appears to be playing the grouchier Troll of the two, struggles to get some shut-eye, prompting Kendrick’s enthused critter to offer a delicate over of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence.”

They’ll be joined for the movie by Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Russell Brand, Zooey Deschanel, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Icona Pop, Beasts of the Southern Wild breakout Quvenzhané Wallis, with John Cleese and Gwen Stefani. And…exhale.

Come November 4, Trolls will test its might against notable »

Emmys 2016: ‘Her Story’ Nomination Is the Cinderella Story Trans Creators Needed

21 July 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Her Story” is the only indie web series to be nominated for an Emmy in the Outstanding Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category, and it just so happens to be about transgender women. Not only that, “Her Story” stars two transgender actresses, and its co-creator is transgender. Unfortunately, that is a rarity in Hollywood.

“I know enough about this industry to know we were a long shot,” said an ecstatic Jen Richards by phone on Friday, the day the nominations went live. “It hasn’t really sunk in yet.”

Richards wrote and produced “Her Story,” a romantic dramedy about three women living in Los Angeles. Richards also stars in the series as Violet, a trans woman who must confront her attraction to women when she meets a cute reporter named Allie, played by co-creator Laura Zak. Violet is stuck in an abusive situation with a man, and worries that »

Emmys 2016: Streaming Surprises (‘Comedians in Cars’) and Snubs (‘Orange Is the New Black’) Show New Status Quo

15 July 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

We long ago passed the point where it felt at all strange for a show on a streaming service to grab Emmy love. Instead, the Academy now refers to distributors as “platforms” rather than “networks,” and we consider a paucity of nominations for “Orange Is the New Black” to be a snub.

Netflix weighed in with 54 nominations in total, up quite a bit from 2015’s 34. But that might seem a natural consequence of Netflix’s massive push toward more original programming. The streaming service has more than doubled the amount of originals it submitted, and many of these new series were the ones that helped make up for shortfalls from series that mysteriously fell out of favor.

To wit: The number of comedies Netflix submitted for consideration more than quadrupled, from two to nine. Newcomer “Master of None” came in like a wrecking ball, picking up three big category nods, including »

Emmys Upstage Oscars In Diversity and Female-Led Programs In 2016

14 July 2016 2:53 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

After Oscars So White, when every single one of the 20 acting nominations were given to white thespians, Thursday’s Emmy nominations revealed far more diversity in the television industry. While the Motion Picture Academy responds well to certain high-end dramas such as Best Picture winner “12 Years a Slave,” those films just don’t come along that often. (So far Oscars 2017 look to tell a different story.)

Unlike the movie industry, in television more shows are aimed at more diverse audiences from the start, which gives 19,000 Emmy voters a wealth of options. The television industry casts a wide net, aiming shows at every audience segment, especially women, who are consistently underserved by the Hollywood studios, despite their strong box office stats.

In dramatic contrast, this year’s Emmy contenders put strong women front and center, matching wits and strength with their male co-stars. This »

Primetime Emmy Awards Target Game Of Thrones

14 July 2016 12:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Emmy nods have hit the Internet, and there are a few surprises among these stellar examples of Primetime TV. Game of Thrones leads the pack with a whopping 23 nominations, which probably will not surprise anyone who has tuned in to the show this season. It’s certainly one of the better programs on TV right now, and this season has been particularly stellar.

More surprising – and, in some ways, more deserved – are several nods to Mr. Robot, including an Outstanding Drama and Lead Actor In A Drama for Rami Malek. Christian Slater gets nothing, despite his Golden Globe win, but I guess we can’t have everything. While Malek has some serious competition in his category, including Hollywood heavyweights Liev Schrieber and Kevin Spacey, here’s hoping that he takes home the prize. He certainly deserves it.

While Game of Thrones dominates in many categories, there’s quite a »

Emmy Nominations 2016: full nominee list

Chris Longo Jul 15, 2016

The Television Academy has spoken! Here are your 2016 Emmy Nominations...

The time to fill out your Emmy Madness Bracket is now. Wait, wrong event. But that would be fun, wouldn’t it? Kirsten Dunst slugging it out versus her network foe Sarah Paulson for Emmy gold. How about perennial favorite Game Of Thrones pitted against underdog newcomer Mr. Robot in the championship round? In the “peak TV” era, maybe a bracket formatted competition is the only true way to determine the best in the world of television.

Anyway, we’ll have to settle for fan polls and speculation as we countdown to the 68th Annual Emmy Award on Sunday, Sept. 18th on ABC. Until then, here is the list of nominees for the major categories. You can find the full list here.

[Youtube "7uOgxfIIx"] Anthony Anderson is up for the Emmy for lead actor in a comedy series - and his hilarious antics during the nomination ceremony is proof that the nod is well deserved. The 45-year-old Black-ish star helped Lauren Graham read off the names of those who were dubbed television's best and brightest this year, and the actor couldn't hold back his emotions - especially when his own comedy was tapped. Anderson reacted to many of the nominees with cheers, but it when he read his name for lead actor in a comedy series nomination, he really lost it. "Woo!" he screamed, »
