Holy Hell, This Theory About American Horror Story's Sixth Season Makes So Much Sense

15 July 2016 11:10 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The longer we go without getting any new details about American Horror Story, the more desperate we get for anything that might be a hint. With only a single and simple image and a handful of details about the theme to go off of, we've really had to think critically about where the show could go next. We came up with theories, of course. We ruminated on that casual mention of the Thatcher School in Hotel's finale. We imagined a few general ideas that play off of the most common tropes in the horror genre. We even brainstormed a few ideas that involve children, per Ryan Murphy's comment about their inclusion. Suddenly, it hit us: when it comes to Ahs, nothing is coincidence; the devil is in the details. Ok, hang tight with us here. Ryan Murphy told us the new season would involve "elements of children." The show is in its sixth season, »

Sarah Paulson Lands Double Emmy Nominations: ‘Now I Know What Allison Janney Feels Like!’

14 July 2016 6:23 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Will this finally be Sarah Paulson’s year?

The “American Horror Story” veteran nabbed two Emmy nominations this year — one for “Ahs: Hotel” and another for her show-stopping performance in “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.”

Paulson has never won an Emmy. She’s been nominated four times prior to this year, three times for various seasons of “Horror Story” and another for HBO’s “Game Change.”

Year after year, critics have questioned how Paulson has not yet walked away with a golden statue (especially after playing conjoined twins Bette and Dot on “American Horror Story: Freak Show”), and with her performance as Marcia Clark in “People v. O.J.,” many are saying 2016 is the year Paulson will win her much-deserved Emmy — and, she could walk away with two.

“Now I know what Allison Janney feels like!” Paulson quipped to Variety on a phone call Thursday morning, shortly »

The Love Between Emmy Nominees Sterling K. Brown & Sarah Paulson Is So Real That Even His Wife Is Cool With It

14 July 2016 4:47 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Whether or not you walked away from The People v. O.J. Simpson with a new opinion on the events of the 1995 trial, you did at least think one thing: Sarah Paulson and Sterling K. Brown are a dream team. Their chemistry was one of the many elements that made FX's critically acclaimed miniseries work as well as it did, and probably contributed to the Emmys that Brown, Paulson, and the series were all nominated for.  "Working with Sarah Paulson has been the highlight of my career thus far," Brown told E! News after learning of his Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie. "People would tell us while we were shooting that we had great chemistry, and I account »

Emmys Upstage Oscars In Diversity and Female-Led Programs In 2016

14 July 2016 2:53 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

After Oscars So White, when every single one of the 20 acting nominations were given to white thespians, Thursday’s Emmy nominations revealed far more diversity in the television industry. While the Motion Picture Academy responds well to certain high-end dramas such as Best Picture winner “12 Years a Slave,” those films just don’t come along that often. (So far Oscars 2017 look to tell a different story.)

Unlike the movie industry, in television more shows are aimed at more diverse audiences from the start, which gives 19,000 Emmy voters a wealth of options. The television industry casts a wide net, aiming shows at every audience segment, especially women, who are consistently underserved by the Hollywood studios, despite their strong box office stats.

‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’ Scores Big in Emmy Nominations, Just Shy of ‘Game of Thrones’

14 July 2016 1:26 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The verdict is in and the TV Academy has been found in favor of “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” with the hit FX drama earning 22 Emmy nominations for 2016 show.

The critically acclaimed, star-studded drama earned the second-most nominations this year, just behind HBO’s “Game of Thrones” with 23 nods.

The ten-episode drama was nominated for outstanding limited series, while stars Sarah Paulson (Marcia Clark), Sterling K. Brown (Chris Darden), Courtney B. Vance (Johnnie Cochran), Cuba Gooding, Jr. (O. J. Simpson), David Schwimmer (Robert Kardashian) and John Travolta (Robert Shapiro) were recognized for their powerhouse performances.

FX earned a record-breaking 56 nominations overall, racking up additional nods for fellow anthology series “Fargo” and “American Horror Story: Hotel,” which is also executive produced by “American Crime Story” bosses Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.

Emmy Nominee Sarah Paulson on Playing ‘Fearless’ Prosecutor Marcia Clark

14 July 2016 12:56 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When FX announced that the first season of Ryan Murphy‘s “American Crime Story” would focus on the O.J. Simpson trial, many were left wondering how a scripted series could possibly bring new life to one of the most high-profile, highly-scrutinized cases in American history. But 10 episodes — and now 22 Emmy nominations — later, those concerns seem laughably misguided. “The People v. O.J. Simpson” turned out to be one of the most popular and compelling retellings of the saga in recent memory. For many, Sarah Paulson‘s humanizing portrayal of Marcia Clark in particular stood out among an impressive cast for the. »

Primetime Emmy Awards Target Game Of Thrones

14 July 2016 12:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Emmy nods have hit the Internet, and there are a few surprises among these stellar examples of Primetime TV. Game of Thrones leads the pack with a whopping 23 nominations, which probably will not surprise anyone who has tuned in to the show this season. It’s certainly one of the better programs on TV right now, and this season has been particularly stellar.

More surprising – and, in some ways, more deserved – are several nods to Mr. Robot, including an Outstanding Drama and Lead Actor In A Drama for Rami Malek. Christian Slater gets nothing, despite his Golden Globe win, but I guess we can’t have everything. While Malek has some serious competition in his category, including Hollywood heavyweights Liev Schrieber and Kevin Spacey, here’s hoping that he takes home the prize. He certainly deserves it.

While Game of Thrones dominates in many categories, there’s quite a »

Emmy Nominations Recognize Present Excellence and Rectify Past Mistakes

14 July 2016 11:39 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A strange feeling overtook me as Emmy nominations were announced today: Pure, unadulterated joy. It’s not as if I’ve never experienced that emotion before, but only very rarely on Emmy day.

The Emmys not only recognized worthy work in the present — today’s nominations rectified some past mistakes.

Tracee Ellis Ross, Constance Zimmer, Courtney B. Vance, Sarah Paulson and Sterling K. Brown are not newcomers to the industry, of course, but it’s very gratifying to see that they were recognized for their stellar work on “Black-ish,” “UnReal” and “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” “Game of Thrones” is a genuine phenomenon at this point, but it’s gratifying to see Kit Harington and especially the ferociously talented Maisie Williams join the show’s other nominees. And it’s never sad to see truly gifted performers on lower-profile shows do well, which was the case with Tatiana Maslany (who got another nod »

HBO Leads 2016 Emmys With 94 Noms

14 July 2016 11:28 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

HBO sits upon the Television Academy’s Iron Throne once again, walking away July 14 with 94 Emmy nominations total, the highest of any network. Its Emmy-winning “Game of Thrones” scored the most nominations of any television series with 23, including acting nods for Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, and Maisie Williams in supporting categories. Yes, that largely reads the same as last year, but that doesn’t mean the 68th annual Emmy Award nominations were void of surprises on Thursday when Anthony Anderson (a nominee this year and last for “Black-ish”) and “Gilmore Girls” star Lauren Graham announced the main categories live at 8:30 a.m. Pt. Read: “ ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’ Proves Truth Is Weirder Than Fiction” Ryan Murphy’s FX newcomer “The People v. O.J.

Emmy Nomination Snubs and Surprises: Stephen Colbert to ‘The Americans’

14 July 2016 11:16 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Those screams of joy (and shrieks of anger) you heard emanating from Hollywood this morning meant one thing: the TV Academy released the annual Emmy nominations. And with that list came the usual surprises and snubs. Here’s who was disappointingly shut out — and happily included — this morning.

Snub: Stephen Colbert, “The Daily Show,” Samantha Bee

A massive shake-up in the variety talk category left veterans “The Daily Show” (with new host Trevor Noah) and Stephen Colbert shut out for the first time in over a decade (when Colbert’s “The Colbert Report” launched on Comedy Central). Both shows drew zero noms this morning. Voters clearly didn’t warm to Colbert’s take on “The Late Show,” which had been nominated in its final season with original host David Letterman last year. “Daily Show” vet Samantha Bee was also expected to join the club for her host freshman series “Full Frontal,” but »
