Emmy Awards 2016: Handicapping the Top Series and Acting Races

28 July 2016 11:49 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

That sigh of relief you hear across town is from everyone who made it through the first round of the TV Academy’s Emmy voting. Now, the race begins in earnest to claim the small screen’s top trophies. We took a look at 11 key categories to break down the ones to beat, and the threats to watch out for, before voters cast their final ballots beginning Aug. 15.

Drama Series

HBO’s powerhouse “Game of Thrones” is once again the year’s most-nominated series with 23 noms (down only one from last year). It’ll be tough to beat the returning champ. Netflix’s “House of Cards” is second in overall noms for drama, with 13 (including eight for acting). The swan song season for PBS’ “Downton Abbey” nabbed 11, and though there may be some sentimental factor in voting for a series that never won top drama (it triumphed as a miniseries in its first season), don’t bet »

Watch Ben Affleck And Anna Kendrick In The New Trailer For The Accountant

28 July 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has released a second trailer for the upcoming drama The Accountant.

Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town Cpa office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations.

With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

The film also stars Jon Bernthal (“Fury,” “The Wolf of Wall Street”), Jean Smart (TV’s “Fargo,” “24”), and Cynthia Addai-Robinson (“Star Trek: Into Darkness”), with Jeffrey Tambor (TV’s “Transparent,” “The Hangover” films »

Accounting generally isn’t considered the most dangerous of professions, but you might change your mind after watching the new trailer for The Accountant.

Ben Affleck stars as Christian, a forensic accountant who has some very particular skills that have nothing to do with numbers. He un-cooks the books for illegal groups, and picks up a few deadly tricks along the way. Naturally, trouble finds Christian when the Treasury Department catch onto what he’s doing, and it becomes a deadly battle of wits.

Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, John Lithgow, and Jeffrey Tambor, this is one movie about accounting that we’re actually excited to see. Check out the new trailer below, and catch The Accountant in Cineplex theatres October 14th.

Second Trailer For ‘The Accountant’ Finds Ben Affleck Protecting His Pockets (and Killing)

28 July 2016 5:09 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

He speaks! After an initial trailer which featured a wordless Ben Affleck as a brilliant man with a shady role of employment, the second trailer for Gavin O’Connor‘s The Accountant shows the titular Affleck uttering his first words. Between DC roles, this could be a solid role for Affleck to keep his acting muscles flexed and a potentially solid entry for O’Connor’s occasionally rocky career.

The new trailer also demonstrates more of the film’s cool color palette and cold, calculated cinematography by Seamus McGarvey, suggesting O’Connor is going for a more objective language, as opposed to something like Warrior. See the second trailer below, for the film which also stars J.K. SimmonsAnna KendrickJon BernthalJohn LithgowJeffrey Tambor, and Alison Wright

A new trailer for the new Ben Affleck movie The Accountant, which will hit our cinema screens this November has just hit online.

Second Trailer for 'The Accountant' with Ben Affleck & Anna Kendrick

27 July 2016 9:32 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"If you do down this road, you can't go back." WB has debuted the second trailer for The Accountant, directed by Gavin O'Connor, starring Ben Affleck as a gifted mathematician who becomes an accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations. The first trailer was fairly tame, introducing Affleck as Christian Wolff, but this new trailer is all about the suspense and the guns and the danger. With the government suddenly onto him, Wolffe tries to take on legitimate work and meets a young clerk, played by Anna Kendrick, who helps him uncook their books. The cast includes Jon Bernthal, Alison Wright, J.K. Simmons, John Lithgow, Jeffrey Tambor and Cynthia Addai-Robinson. From the looks of it, this might actually be pretty good, even though I'm not sure about where it's all going to end up. Fire it up. Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Gavin O'Connor's The Accountant, »

Warner Bros. Pictures has premiered the new full-length trailer for the suspense thriller "The Accountant" which opens in cinemas on October 14th.

As he gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

Jon Bernthal, Jean Smart, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgow also star in the film which hails from "Warrior" director Gavin O'Connor and a script by "The Judge" writer Bill Dubuque. Mark Williams and Lynette Howell are producing.

New Trailer For The Accountant Starring Ben Affleck And Anna Kendrick

27 July 2016 7:26 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’re going to see Ben Affleck once again suited up as Batman in Suicide Squad next month, but that won’t be the last time the actor is shown kicking butt on the big screen this year. He’ll soon be seen in The Accountant, but the film will have him playing a very different type of hero.

Directed by Warrior and Jane Got A Gun helmer Gavin O’Connor, the movie features the Justice League star as a mild mannered accountant who freelances as an assassin. For further details on what to expect from The Accountant, here’s the official synopsis:

Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town Cpa office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, »

‘Arrested Development’ Season 5 Could Start Shooting in Early 2017

27 July 2016 10:56 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Mitch Hurwitz can’t escape questions about “Arrested Development.”

In a panel Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour for Netflix comedies “Bojack Horseman,” “F is for Family” and “Lady Dynamite,” the first question was directed at Hurwitz, asking the “Arrested” creator — and “Lady Dynamite” co-creator — for a status update on the fifth season of his Emmy-winning ensemble comedy.

“If it does happen, it looks like the shooting will start at the beginning of 2017.”

Though there are still details to be worked out, Hurwitz and writers for the show have been at work on a new season.

“It’s the thing I’m really desperate to do,” Hurwitz said. “We’ve got a lot of the stories broke and we’re ready to go.”

Hurwitz also announced that Lady Dynamite, the Netflix original comedy he co-created with Pam Brady and starring comedian Maria Bamford, has been renewed for a second season.

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

26 July 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | 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.

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.
