‘The Night Of’ Didn’t Lose to ‘Big Little Lies’ at the Emmys — It Lost to a Broken System

17 September 2017 9:31 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last year, one of the biggest Emmys stories had nothing to do with the 2016 ceremony.

People wouldn’t stop talking about “The Night Of,” a summer sensation among viewers and critics that debuted in mid-June on HBO. The limited series aired its first episode before the Emmy nominations were announced and its last episode nearly a month before the ceremony took place.

And yet, “The Night Of” was nowhere to be seen on Emmys night; it wasn’t eligible.

Thankfully, the memories of TV Academy voters were sound enough to nominate Steven Zaillian and Richard Price’s eight-episode drama for 13 Emmys in 2017. More than a year after its premiere, “The Night Of” became an Emmy winner by snagging four wins at the Creative Arts Emmys (for cinematography, sound editing, »

Riz Ahmed Talks Injustice in the Justice System During Lead Actor in a Limited Series Win

17 September 2017 7:55 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Riz Ahmed won the limited series or movie lead actor trophy for his role in “The Night Of” at Sunday’s 69th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Ahmed said he’s sharing the award with costar John Turturro, whom he was up against in the category, and thanked the late James Gandolfini.

“I’m indebted to many people,” he said, listing Steve Zaillian, the show’s creator, director and executive producer, and writer Richard Price, among others.

“I want to say it is always strange reaping the rewards of a story based on real-world suffering, but if this show has shown a light on some of the prejudice in our societies, some of the injustice in our justice system, then maybe that is something,” he said.

The actor also gave a shout-out to South Asian Youth Action.

Ahmed has had quite the year. The rapper/actor was nominated not only for his work as Nasir “Naz” Khan, a »

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 »

Emmy Ballots Revealed: Producers and Writers Secretly Share The Reasons Behind Their Picks

29 August 2017 2:37 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This may be the most unpredictable Emmy race in years, particularly on the drama side. “Stranger Things” and “Veep” lead the Emmy odds according to the prognosticators at Gold Derby, but don’t count out shows like “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Black-ish” and “Atlanta.” At least, that’s the takeaway from a handful of writers, producers and directors who agreed to anonymously share their Emmy ballots with IndieWire.

Not that this year’s picks were easy to make. “I watch a lot of TV,” said one writer. “And yet there is not a single category where I have seen every nominee. Seems impossible to judge — and crazy to think a winner is actually the best, rather than just the best of what most people have seen.”

That’s the high-class problem of Peak TV, and why outlets like HBO and Netflix spend handsomely on For Your Consideration campaigns. That’s »

‘The Big Lebowski’ Embarrassed John Turturro At First, and Now He’s Made a ‘More Sexual’ Sequel

28 August 2017 10:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One of the most intriguing indies without a release date or a scheduled festival appearance this fall is John Turturro’s “Going Places.” The film had been originally billed as a sequel to the Coen Brothers’ 1998 cult classic “The Big Lebowski,” but it’s more of a character-centric spinoff or “continuation” of the Jesus character Turturro made so iconic 19 years ago.

Turturro recently joined The Hollywood Reporter on its Awards Chatter podcast for a conversation about his Emmy-nominated turn in “The Night Of,” but the discussion couldn’t help but involve one of his most unforgettable supporting turns. It turns out the actor could have never predicted that Jesus, the Puerto Rican bowling enthusiast, would be such a huge success and a character he would revisit nearly two decades later.

"I think the most interesting stuff being done is on television," John Turturro, one of the most highly regarded character actors of his generation — he has been a regular in films ranging from those of Spike Lee and brothers Ethan Coen and Joel Coen to those of Adam Sandler and the Transformers franchise — says as we sit down at the Empire Hotel in New York to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter's 'Awards Chatter' podcast.

Emmys 2017 Poll: Who Should Win for Lead Actor in a Limited Series/Movie?

22 August 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

A pair of prickly geniuses, a pair of prison inmates, a pair of lookalike brothers… the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie nominees at this year’s Emmys come in twos, apparently.

The six-nominee field boasts a pair of Oscar winners: Robert De Niro, who played notorious fraudster Bernie Madoff in HBO’s The Wizard of Lies, and Geoffrey Rush, who inhabited iconic physicist Albert Einstein in National Geographic’s Genius. And HBO’s crime drama The Night Of scored a pair of nominations, with Riz Ahmed as accused killer Naz and John Turturro as Naz’s dogged defense attorney John Stone. »

Blu-ray Review – Barton Fink: Special Edition (1991)

22 August 2017 3:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Barton Fink, 1991.

Directed by Joel Coen.

Starring John Turturro, John Goodman, Judy Davis, Michael Lerner, John Mahoney, and Jon Polito.

Synopsis:

Barton Fink has been reissued by Kino Lorber in a new Blu-ray edition that doesn’t say “Special Edition” anywhere on the packaging but basically is one (hence the use of “(Special Edition)” on their site and here). The print has been improved a bit since the previous Universal release, and Kino commissioned some new interviews that are included here, along with eight deleted scenes.

“I thought it was a strange film,” actor John Turturro recalls in the new 14-minute interview on this Barton Fink (Special Edition) Blu-ray from Kino Lorber. As Coen brothers movies go, this one veers a bit into David Lynch territory as it tells the satirical story of a Broadway playwright seduced by Hollywood’s siren call during the 1940s.

John Turturro Says He's Optimistic About Potential 'Night Of' Season 2

18 August 2017 9:50 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Big Little Lies isn't the only HBO limited series that has left viewers clamoring for more. Ever since The Night Of premiered on the pay cabler last July, questions have continued about whether the legal drama will return for a second season.

They're not alone.

"He's a wonderful a character," star John Turturro tells The Hollywood Reporter. "By the end of it, I didn't feel like I was bored with it at all, I was just like, 'Wow.' I could have kept going."

Italian Movies Are Struggling in U.S. Theaters, But This Distribution Experiment Could Change That

17 August 2017 7:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When “Indivisible” screened for a crowd at Lincoln Center as the opening night selection of its annual “Open Roads: New Italian Cinema” series, it had no U.S. distribution plan. In late 2016, it had screened in higher-profile slots in Venice and Toronto, where buyers paid no heed. But at Lincoln Center, the movie — a seriocomic story about 18-year-old conjoined twins pursuing a music career (real-life twins Angela and Marianna Fontana) — played through the roof.

That was when Ira Deutchman saw its potential.

“I just fell in love with it,” the veteran distribution executive said. “It’s got everything in it. The movie is not a depressing, severe art film that requires people to look at it like work. Maybe distributors didn’t see the commerciality in a story about conjoined twins, but the women are beautiful and the movie is surprisingly entertaining.”

‘The Night Of’ Star Bill Camp on Letting Out ‘The Beast’ in His Dogged Detective (Video)

A version of this story on Bill Camp first appeared in the Down to the Wire issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine. The lead acting nominees from Richard Price and Steven Zaillian’s dark and riveting HBO miniseries “The Night Of” are Riz Ahmed as Naz, a young Pakistani-American student accused of murder, and John Turturro, who took over a role originally intended for the late James Gandolfini, as his weary attorney, John Stone. Both men give powerful performances, but two other cast members supply richly textured performances in supporting roles: Michael Kenneth Williams as a prison kingpin and Bill Camp as an. »

Riz Ahmed Spits Must-See Spoken Word Poem in Wake of Charlottesville Violence — Watch

15 August 2017 7:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Riz Ahmed blew the roof off of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” Monday night, with an impassioned spoken word piece in response to the violence in Charlottesville.

“In light of all the current events that are going on, it just seems like we’re living in really divided times. And it really hurts,” the British actor and rapper told Fallon. “I wrote this piece ten years ago and every year, I keep hoping it will become irrelevant. But every year, it seems to become more and more relevant, sadly. And it’s my attempt to try and get behind the headlines and try and find out where all this extremism is coming from.”
