Emmy predictions: Are we underestimating 'American Horror Story' scene stealer Finn Wittrock?

19 hours ago | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

According to user MrAmerica in our TV forums, "Finn Wittrock's performance as Dandy Mott in 'American Horror Story Freak Show' is one for the record books … This should be a lock [for an Emmy]!" But as of this writing, Wittrock is in second place for Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor, behind Bill Murray ("Olive Kitteridge"). Why are so many of us hesitant to predict such a showy turn in a program with so much TV academy support (19 total nominations for "Ahs")? Are we underestimating him? -Break- The rest of our forum posters chimed in with their thoughts. Read some of their comments below, and join them now to let us know what you think. Will Sarah Paulson's dual roles in 'American Horror Story' trump co-stars at Emmys? jhaddad: Being relatively unknown might hurt Wittrock but he delivers The best (and loudest) performance throughout every episode as opposed to Murray who doesn'. »

amfAR to Fete ‘American Horror Story’ Creator Ryan Murphy at Inspiration Gala

28 August 2015 6:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ryan Murphy will be honored at amfAR’s sixth annual Inspiration Gala, to be held Oct. 29 at Milk Studios in Los Angeles.

The “American Horror Story” creator will be feted with the Award of Inspiration, in recognition of his achievement in film and television and his commitment to the fight against AIDS. Among his many projects, Murphy also exec produced HBO’s “The Normal Heart,” an adaptation of Larry Kramer’s play depicting the AIDS crisis in 1980s New York.

“Everything about it was very personal for me,” he told Variety about making the movie. “I had lost a lot of friends growing up. I was of the generation that was coming of age when AIDS struck, so I also felt it was such a seminal piece of work that I wanted to get it right.”

Gwyneth Paltrow will be back to host the benefit, which raises money for AIDS research. »

New Photos of Lady Gaga’s Character in American Horror Story: Hotel

27 August 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Lady Gaga's vampiric American Horror Story: Hotel character, The Countess, is featured in new photos from EW, one of which shows The Countess with her "brood of bloodsucking children."

Hot on the heels of unleashing their American Horror Story: Hotel photos yesterday, EW is back with a new batch (see below) focused on Lady Gaga as The Countess, "a glamorous but deadly creature who sustains on a healthy diet of sex and blood." One photo in particular that stands out shows The Countess sitting next to three blood-slurping children, who The Countess has "kidnapped / adopted."

With popularity for FX's American Horror Story continuing to rise, showrunner Ryan Murphy told EW that airing two seasons—one in the fall and one in the spring—in the timespan of one year in the near future (beginning in 2016) could possibly happen. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for more updates on American Horror Story: Hotel, »

‘American Horror Story: Hotel’: First Look at Lady Gaga’s Countess and New Characters

26 August 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel” will open for business on Oct. 7, and as check-in time approaches, new details are starting to emerge about the many twisted characters who inhabit Ryan Murphy’s latest macabre playground.

Entertainment Weekly’s “Hotel” cover story sheds a little more light on Lady Gaga’s mysterious Countess, previously described by Murphy as a bisexual “wealthy social doyenne” who is “consumed with art and fashion and people, and she has a nefarious plan that is revealed in the first episode.”

According to EW, Gaga’s Countess — who owns the titular Hotel Cortez — sustains herself with a nutritious diet of sex and blood, but Murphy hesitates to call her (or her lovers, Matt Bomer’s Donovan and Finn Wittrock’s Tristan) vampires… “I prefer the term ‘ancient blood virus,'” he says. “It’s not vampires. It’s really a form of hemophilia in a way. »

First official images from American Horror Story: Hotel

Last week we saw some set photos from American Horror Story: Hotel featuring Lady Gaga’s Countess [see here], and now the first official images from the fifth season of the anthology horror series have arrived online,

See Also: Two teasers for American Horror Story: Hotel

 

Thanks to EW, we’ve also got a few plot and character details:

Built in 1930 by the rich and charming but deeply psychotic James March (Evan Peters), the beautiful art-deco hotel is, in actuality, a labyrinthine structure built to hide March’s murderous activities (think dead ends, secret rooms, endless shafts). In present day, though, the Cortez is acquired by Gaga’s Countess, a glamorous socialite who attends art openings and fashion shows and maintains her looks not from a steady diet of kale but from imbibing human blood. The Countess is also insatiable when it comes to love and sex, which sets up a macabre love triangle between her, »

Emmys: Do Multiple Nominees for the Same Show Help or Hurt?

26 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As the casts of TV series grow into ever larger ensembles, it was perhaps inevitable that actors from the same series would increasingly find themselves competing against each other in Emmy races.

This year, “American Horror Story: Freak Show” features three supporting actresses — Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett — for limited series and two supporting actors — Denis O’Hare and Finn Wittrock. On “Game of Thrones,” Lena Headey and Emilia Clarke are both vying in the supporting-actress drama series race.

While conventional wisdom says they will cancel each other out, as far as Emmy history is concerned, the jury’s still out on whether multiple contenders help or hurt.

The 1977 miniseries “Roots” saw Louis Gossett Jr. winning over three co-stars as lead actor, while supporting thesps Ed Asner and Olivia Cole defeated three and two colleagues, respectively.

It’s become something of a sign of solidarity when actors are submitted in the same category, »

Lea Michele on Finding Her Glee in ‘Scream Queens’

26 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After seven seasons on “Glee,” Lea Michele has taken on a decidedly different role in “Scream Queens,” as the glamour-challenged, neckbrace-wearing Hester who desperately just wants to fit in. No singing required!

How did you get cast?

Ryan called me in October when we were starting the final season of “Glee,” and he said I love you and I want us to keep working together and it will help the sad “Glee” transition so we never have to say goodbye. All he said was “Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, neckbrace.” And I said, “I’m in.” I had no idea what it was. I was so excited. I had to keep it quiet for a really long time. I thought it was maybe another season of “American Horror Story” that he was asking me to be a part of. It wasn’t until it was announced online that he told »

Want a look at Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley and more look like in American Horror Story: Hotel? Step this way...

Next to its stalwart rep troupe, American Horror Story's fifth season has taken a couple of bold casting risks that look as though they may pay off. Lady Gaga and Naomi Campbell are due to appear alongside the more tried and tested likes of Kathy Bates, Wes Bentley, Evan Peters, Sarah Poulson, and Angela Bassett in the new series, which premieres this October in the Us.

The fifth season is the first not to welcome the inestimable talents of Jessica Lange, but the crop of talent lined up below should rush in to fill that gap.

Here's an introduction to American Horror Story: Hotel's new characters, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly's exclusive:

Anthony Anderson Tries to Take Home a Giant Emmy at Performers Peer Group Reception

25 August 2015 3:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Emmy nominees were pretty light-hearted about the forthcoming 67th Primetime Emmy Awards at the Montage Beverly Hills Monday night for the Television Academy’s Performers Peer Group party. Although a very excited-to-be-there Anthony Anderson did jump the gun a bit when TV Academy Governor Bob Bergen announced his name to come up to the podium.

“Yes, I won!” he said as he attempted to take home the Emmy on stage that was larger than he was to laughs from the crowd. “Oh, so this is alphabetical order,” he joked.

Some Emmy vets and first-time contenders in the room were Jonathan Banks and Niecy Nash. Banks has received three Emmy nominations for three different shows in his career.

“Again, I say how lucky I am because the first nomination was what 27 years ago?” Banks noted. “I’d say I’m a pretty lucky guy.

Kathy Bates Remembers Winning Her First Emmy

20 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Kathy Bates won an Oscar in 1991, and then had to wait 21 years to win an Emmy. After nine nominations in categories ranging from director to lead actress, Bates finally landed the elusive TV trophy for a guest spot on “Two and a Half Men.” Then she won again last year for “American Horror Story: Coven.” She’s back in the running this year for the latest “Horror Story,” but, having finally felt the taste of victory, says she’s ready to see someone else shine.

I heard you weren’t at the Creative Arts ceremony when you won the guest Emmy.

No, you know what happened is that “Harry’s Law” had been cancelled. I decided we were gonna sit shiva for Harry at my house, since she was Jewish. Everybody came from the cast and crew, and one of the hair women came in and said, “You just won an Emmy! »

Watch: The Sultry Gazes of Cate Blanchett in ‘Carol’

19 August 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

The lighting of a cigarette. The sipping of a martini. The tucking of hair behind an ear. In the first seven seconds alone of the “Carol” trailer, Cate Blanchett captivates as the effortlessly glamorous title character. Based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel “The Price of Salt,” with direction from Todd Haynes and a screenplay from Phyllis Nagy, the 2015 Cannes Film Festival favorite centers on a married woman in 1950’s New York who begins a scandalous affair with a younger department store clerk who happens to also be a woman. Co-starring Sarah Paulson, Kyle Chandler, and Rooney Mara (with her uncanny resemblance to Audrey Hepburn) as the fixation of Carol’s wandering eye, the film is sure to play a big role come awards season. Just look at all those sultry glances! Sure, two-time Oscar winner Blanchett nabbed leading actress only a year and a half ago, but could you blame »

The Ultimate Red Carpet Face-off: Emmys vs. Oscars

19 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

From Emma Thompson to Amy Schumer to Taraji P. Henson, this year’s list of Emmy nominees reads like a who’s who of Hollywood. With marquee names adding panache to the primetime awards, can we assume that this year’s red carpet will pack an appropriately powerful punch?

“Absolutely,” says stylist Karla Welch, who’s dressing nominees Amy Poehler, Elisabeth Moss, Sarah Paulson and Lisa Kudrow in addition to Carrie Brownstein, whose IFC sketch series “Portlandia” received a nom. “There’s definitely much more excitement these days regarding the Emmy red carpet. I’m finding we’re getting way more opportunity to create custom gowns, so that really says something,” says Welch, who finds that the big labels are more enthusiastic than ever before. “Designers are right on you the second the nominations come out.”
