Emmy Voters Lean Toward Barbed Political Commentaries on Latenight

13 August 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As far as the Emmy nominees for Variety Series are concerned, it’s the politics, stupid. A category once dominated by music and sketches now tilts decidedly toward contemporary commentary and lampoons.

Whether the hook is faux news reporting (Jon Stewart; Stephen Colbert; “Saturday Night Live”) or legit roundtable punditry (Bill Maher), latenight explorations of the political process regularly garner nods — 2014 marks the third consecutive annual roster boasting the same six contenders.

Emmy voters have responded in a landslide. Over the past decade the statuette has exclusively landed on the two best-known, and arguably most influential, satirical series: 10 consecutive wins for “The Daily Show,” plus last year’s honoree and “Daily Show” spinoff, “The Colbert Report.”

Though political satire is clearly a force to be reckoned with at the Emmys, does it impact the world outside the industry? Howard Kurtz, host of Fox News’ “#MediaBuzz,” has no doubt. “These programs »

Exclusive: FilmRise Will Make David Frost's Richard Nixon Interviews Available Digitally For The First Time

18 March 2014 2:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The 12 extensive interviews that President Richard Nixon did with journalist David Frost will be released digitally for the first time in the U.S. courtesy of FilmRise, who've picked up the exclusive U.S. digital and DVD rights. The interviews, which equal nearly 29 hours of footage, were conducted over four weeks, beginning March 23, 1977, and were edited into four 90-minute programs that were broadcast in May. Nixon had resigned in 1974 and retreated from public life until Frost proposed the interviews, for which Nixon was paid. Nixon's admissions in the interviews led to widespread public belief that he had indeed obstructed justice, something he continued to deny until his death -- his successor, President Gerald Ford, had pardoned him. The interviews were the basis of Peter Morgan's play "Frost/Nixon," which was adapted into the 2008 film directed by Ron Howard starring Michael Sheen as Frost and Frank Langella as Nixon. "We »

San Francisco – She was the biggest movie star in the world at less than 10 years old. Shirley Temple (Black) – who entertained Depression weary audiences through most of the 1930s with her curly haired optimism – died on February 10th of natural causes at 85, according to a family representative.

Shirley Jane Temple had a remarkable life, beginning at a very young age as a megawatt child star, and after an attempt to transition into young adult roles, a “retirement” at 22 years old. Her next life phase included two marriages – the second lasting 54 years – and a productive era in politics and as a U.S. diplomat.

Temple was born in April of 1928 in Santa Monica, California. Her mother enrolled her in dance classes at the age of three, at the same time creating her famous ringlet hair style (copied »

Breaking News! Shirley Temple Dead At Age 85

11 February 2014 4:51 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Shirley Temple, one of the most iconic figures in the history of the movie business, has passed away at age 85. No details of her death have been released as of this writing. Temple was the the ultimate child star. The pint-sized dynamo's sugar-coated family films provided some respite to audiences from the pain of the Great Depression and literally saved Fox from bankruptcy. She was the biggest boxoffice sensation of the era and was so popular that her image adorned a highly successful merchandise line. Seemingly every little girl at the time had a Shirley Temple doll.  Temple was so popular that she received an honorary Oscar in 1934 for her contributions to the film industry. She continued to act as a teenager and a young woman but quit feature films in 1949, though she did return to the screen with a TV series between 1959-1961. In 1950, Temple married businessman Charles Black »

Shirley Temple, Legendary Child Star, Dies at 85

11 February 2014 2:54 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Shirley Temple, the child star phenomenon of the 1930s who went on to a career in international diplomacy, died Tuesday in California at age 85.

A statement from her family provided to news organizations said she died at home in Woodside, Calif., of natural causes. “She was surrounded by her family and caregivers,” the BBC quoted the statement as saying. “We salute her for a life of remarkable achievements as an actor, as a diplomat, and… our beloved mother, grandmother [and] great-grandmother.”

A string of non-stop hits starting with “Little Miss Marker” in 1934 and continuing with such films as “Captain January,” “Poor Little Rich Girl” and “Wee Willie Winkie” captured Depression-era America’s heart, keeping the troubled 20th Century Fox solvent.

The dimpled, blonde, curly-headed Temple was the nation’s top box office attraction from 1935-38 and one of the nation’s top wage earners. Reflecting the extent of her popularity, she »
