Remote Controlled: Nicole Kidman on ‘Big Little Lies’ — ‘I Didn’t Realize How Disturbing It Was Going to Be’

21 July 2017 9:59 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Welcome to “Remote Controlled,” a podcast from Variety featuring the best and brightest in television, both in front of and behind the camera.

In today’s episode, Variety’s executive editor of TV Debra Birnbaum talks with “Big Little Lies” star Nicole Kidman.

The project began because she and Reese Witherspoon, both of whom would ultimately serve as executive producers, weren’t finding enough compelling, complex roles to play. “This was born of Reese and I feeling frustrated that we weren’t being offered the roles that we wanted,” she says. “We were reading things and they just weren’t enough. So this was born out of not having an opportunity, and we got lucky. We were able to make it happen.”

Kidman says the first sense she got that the series was a success came from watching the episodes with her own husband. “When he started to say, ‘When does the next one get here?' »

13 July 2017 11:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

They say television is the new film, and that’s certainly true when you look at how many actors, directors, writers, cinematographers and more from the film world are counted among this year’s Emmy nominees. A majority of the biggest contenders, from “The Handmaid’s Tale” to “The Night Of,” “Big Little Lies” and “The Crown,” brought some of the best film talent to the small screen over the last year, and their work resulted in major recognition from the TV Academy.

'Westworld', 'Saturday Night Live' lead Emmys nominations

13 July 2017 11:13 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Shows each earned 22 nods on Thursday morning.

Westworld and Saturday Night Live led the pack on 22 nods each in all categories as the 2017 Primetime Emmys nominations were unveiled on Thursday morning.

Stranger Things and Feud: Bette And Joan followed on 18 apiece, then comedy staple Veep on 17, and The Crown on 13.

By company, HBO led the way on 110 nominations, with Netflix next on 91, and NBC on 60.

Thursday’s nominations underscored the rise of the streaming services, as Netflix and Hulu made emphatic statements, particularly in the drama categories with The Crown, Stranger Things and The Handmaid’s Tale. Netflix spent a lot on reaching Emmys voters, staging a month-long For Your Consideration residency in Beverly Hills earlier in the summer when it rolled out its heavy-hitters for daily publicity appearances.

The absence of Transparent in the comedy series category – despite an individual nod for last year’s winner Jeffrey Tambor – will sting executives at Amazon Studios, who overall »

Castle Rock, a forthcoming Hulu series that will explore varying themes and worlds within beloved horror scribe Stephen King’s decades-spaning body of work, has announced its latest series regular: Bill Skarsgård -- who, coincidentally or not, is starring as Pennywise the clown in September’s reboot of King’s iconic novel, It.

In Castle Rock, Skarsgård, 26, will play a young man with an unusual legal problem. He will star alongside previously announced cast members Andre Holland (Moonlight), Sissy Spacek, Melanie Lynskey (Heavenly Creatures), and Jane Levy (Evil Dead). Spacek, of course, previously starred in the 1976 film adaptation of King’s beloved novel, Carrie. Skarsgård, who is the younger brother of actor Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood), previously starred in Netflix’s Hemlock Grove series.

The 25 Best Romances of the 21st Century, From ‘Carol’ to ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’

7 July 2017 11:39 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Eat your heart out, moviegoers. Everyone loves a good love story whether they admit it or not, and the 21st century has brought us more than a few couples worth rooting for: Clementine and Joel, Ennis and Jack, Joaquin and his computer. Often these unions are unconventional or hidden in the guise of something more high-concept — straightforward romances are so 20th century — but at the end of the day, we all want to see a happy ending for our smitten lovers.

Our list goes all over the map, from the mainstream maestro Nancy Meyers to international masters like Wong Kar-Wai. Some were blockbuster hits (“Twilight,” “The Proposal”); others have hardly been seen stateside at all (Lee Chang-dong’s 2002 “Oasis”). However, all of them illustrate some essential element of love, from falling to longing and all the sticky bits in between.

While the zeitgeist has skewed toward the melancholy, that’s »
