The Muppets: thoughts on the boycott protest

29 September 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Brendon responds to claims that ABC's The Muppets "gets everything wrong" about the Henson Oz creations, and the boycott call...

Without seeing last week’s premiere episode of The Muppets, the group One Million Moms had called for a boycott. “The mature version of The Muppets will cover a range of topics from sex to drugs,” they said, noting that “Miss Piggy came out as a pro-choice feminist during an MSNBC interview. The puppet characters loved by kids in the 1970s and 1980s and beyond are now weighing in on interspecies relationships and promiscuity.”

Well... I’ve only seen two more episodes than the big fat zero seen by the group, so I don’t really know how much accidental truth there will eventually be in their gong-banging guesses, but it’s a matter of record that Piggy is definitely pro-choice and the show does have some points to make about interspecies relationships, »

Fifteen months after a fatal six-vehicle crash left Tracy Morgan in a coma and with numerous broken bones, the comedian and actor made a triumphant return to the Emmy Awards, cracking jokes and leaving the audience in tears.

"Last year, Jimmy Kimmel said on stage 'I'll see you next year,'" Morgan said while on stage to present the night's final award for Best Drama Series to Game of Thrones. "Thanks to my doctors and my beautiful wife, I'm here standing on my own two feet."

Jane Krakowski should have dozens of Emmys

18 September 2015 12:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jane Krakowski's perfection has many sides. She won a Tony for her saucy in performance in "Nine." She won an Olivier Award for her performance as Adelaide in the West End revival of "Guys and Dolls." Plus she's been nominated for two Daytime Emmys and now five Primetime Emmys -- but she still hasn't picked up a TV statuette. Now that she's back in the running with a nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series thanks to "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," we get to vaunt her many gifts once again. Here are five other times the "30 Rock"/"All McBeal" vet deserved accolades for her onscreen flair.  1. That time she announced her love for Bill Gates It was the 2000 American Comedy Awards, and Jane Krakowksi decided to proclaim her lust for Bill Gates. "Floppy/hard" innuendos abound.  2. Jane helpfully tells Tina Fey she sees herself in her. When Tina Fey »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

17 September 2015 12:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A six-time winner (including two in 2014), Allison Janney has almost as many trophies as she does competitors in 2015. Thanks to the TV Academy implementing its two-percent rule — stating any nominee within two percent of the next nominee is considered a tie, and both are included — across the acting categories this year, Janney will face more competition than ever in her fight to retain the title of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Many of the 2015 nominees have been here before, with Mayim Bialik, Julie Bowen, Anna Chlumsky, and Kate McKinnon all returning from 2014 (and earlier). Only Bowen has won before (twice), but Jane Krakowski is making her triumphant return to the Emmys after earning four nominations throughout "30 Rock's" impressive aughts-era run. She could finally snag a win this year thanks to re-teaming with Tina Fey, but there are plenty of new faces who are just as eager to make their mark. »

Who deserves a first Emmy more: Jon Hamm or Jane Krakowski?

15 September 2015 2:39 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The fun of the Oscars is that certain deserving actors will win and some will lose. The fun of the Emmys is that certain deserving actors will win and some will lose again, again, and again. It's not pretty, but awards shows exist because there's a drama to losing. Though many actors were rightfully awarded several times for their iconic work -- Bryan Cranston, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Laurie Metcalf, just to name a few -- their victories meant other talented performers didn't pick up a statuette. We've ranked the 20 TV actors who deserve to win a trophy most, including this year's nominees Jon Hamm (who could pick up his first win in 16 Emmy nominations for "Mad Men") and Jane Krakowski (up for "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt").  »
