10 July 2016 7:35 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Lin-Manuel Miranda made his entrance during the opening number of his history-making musical Hamilton on Saturday night, he received a one-minute standing ovation, with applause so loud it nearly brought the house down. This wasn't just any performance for the 36-year-old actor, who also penned the show's music, lyrics and book. It was his last in the title role of Alexander Hamilton. Miranda left the production - as did original cast members Leslie Odom, Jr., Phillipa Soo and Ariana DeBose - after being with the musical since its off-Broadway run at New York's Public Theater last winter.

Who's the Sexiest Female Cop or Detective on TV?

18 June 2016 10:08 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

This season saw the premiere of Shades of Blue and the rise of Quantico, two of the latest dramas to feature strong female detectives. And while your average, real-life female cop or detective probably doesn't look like Jennifer Lopez, the average law enforcement woman on television does. Who's the sexiest?

Is it Mariska Hargitay on Law & Order: Svu, Gillian Anderson on The X-Files, or Jaina Lee Ortiz on Fox's new drama Rosewood? What about the classics? Kyra Sedgwick on The Closer, Kathryn Morris on Cold Case or Heather Locklear on Tj Hooker?

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama

2 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Last year, Viola Davis made history as the first African-American woman to win the lead actress prize, and she could well repeat this year for her searing work on “How to Get Away With Murder.” With the exception of Elisabeth Moss, whose “Mad Men” ended its on-air run last year, Davis’ competition is likely to be the same: Claire Danes (“Homeland”), Taraji P. Henson (“Empire”), Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”) and Robin Wright (“House of Cards”).

Or, voters could choose to recognize Julianna Margulies, who has already won twice for “The Good Wife” — most recently in 2014 ­­— yet wasn’t even nominated last year. With the series finale still fresh in voter’s minds, they would be wise to reward Margulies for her seven seasons of remarkable work. Along those lines, Michelle Dockery, nominated in 2012, 2013 and 2014 for “Downton Abbey,” could slip back in now that the show has ended.

Law & Order: Svu Boss Warren Leight on Stabler Regrets, Benson Changes and a Final Word to Fans

26 May 2016 6:37 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Leight's out on Law & Order: Svu. Warren Leight that is. The Tony-winning writer and executive producer ended his tenure on the NBC police drama with the season 17 finale "Heartfelt Passages." A particularly fitting name for his final episode that featured the elite squad of detectives losing one of their own—a first in 17 seasons. Under Leight, Law & Order: Svu underwent a shift, partially at of necessity as Christopher Meloni exited between seasons 12 and Leight's first, season 13. The series started focusing more on Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson, her rise to power in the squad room and for the first time in more than a decade, the character had a personal life that wasn't depicted as »

Why Mariska Hargitay Is More Committed to Law & Order: Svu Than Ever Before

25 May 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson plays several different roles for many different people. She's the boss of the Special Victims Unit, she's mom to Noah, girlfriend to Tucker (yeah, get used to it), and hero to all (including viewers) on Law & Order: Svu. She's taken her licks and gotten back up time after time, so season 17, which Hargitay called a "huge," year for Benson, is no different. "For me it's been a balancing act. Balancing being the boss, balancing being reintegrated after the 'Townhouse Incident' and balancing motherhood and priorities—keeping all the balls in the air is what's so hard. Having Noah and feeling like I have so many kids," she told E! »
