Emmys 2017 Poll: Who Should Win for Lead Actress in a Drama Series?

16 August 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Will a queen reign supreme at the 2017 Emmys? Or will a handmaid take home the big prize? (Blessed be the fruit, indeed.)

The Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category has six worthy contenders in it this year, but two of them are garnering the lion’s share of the buzz: Claire Foy, for her Golden Globe-winning turn as Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix’s sumptuous period drama The Crown; and Elisabeth Moss, for her searing portrayal of defiant handmaid Offred in Hulu’s alt-history thriller The Handmaid’s Tale. (Moss has a long history with the Emmys: She »

31 underrated movies well worth a look

Simon Brew Aug 18, 2017

Looking for a film to watch, that you might not have considered before? Try some of these...

Sometimes, we figure, you come to a site like this just to find out about a film you didn’t know about. That you want recommendations of movies that you might not otherwise have uncovered. This list, then, has no theme, save that the films on it are really good, and didn’t get much of an audience first time around. That, or they seem to have been forgotten. It’s a real mix, but hopefully, there’s something on here that appeals..

The Brady Bunch Movie

The Brady Bunch films never really seemed to do much business in the UK, and that’s a real pity. No foreknowledge of the series is required, and the first movie takes the Brady film and transplants them into 1990s America, with no »

Lead Actress Emmy Nominees Prove to Be Timely Political Animals

10 August 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Anyone who wonders if television really is a reflection of modern-day society should consider this year’s lead actress nominees. While real-life women organize marches, defy party lines to take down harmful legislation, or simply manage to get dinner on the table on time while fighting to “have it all,” so too are their fictional counterparts standing strong to fight their own wars.

Lead comedy actress nominees, including Tracee Ellis Ross as Rainbow on ABC’s “Black-ish,” Allison Janney as Bonnie on CBS’ “Mom” and Pamela Adlon as Sam on FX’s “Better Things,” are all fighting to keep their families afloat while being role models for their kids. Ellie Kemper’s titular peppy lead in Netflix’s “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin in “Grace and Frankie” are all in the process of rebuilding their lives.

Meanwhile, drama nominees such as Elisabeth Moss as Offred in Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” and »

Emmys 2017: Will Claire Foy or Elisabeth Moss Take the Lead Drama Actress Trophy?

10 August 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A twenty-something queen, a president with blood on her hands, a powerful defense attorney and law professor, a volatile robot, a savvy Soviet spy and a Handmaid who refuses to allow her spirit to be crushed. That’s the tableau of characters played by the six contenders for lead drama actress. And that alone explains why actresses with Oscars and Tonys on their resumes are stampeding to television. The riches are so abundant that most TV fans can name at least a half-dozen more actresses who also deserve recognition. Emmy voters have an exceptionally tough call to make in this category.

The Odds

The frontrunners are Elisabeth Moss for Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” and Claire Foy for Netflix’s “The Crown.” In almost any other year, Foy would be the shoo-in for donning the robe and crown in a show that has Emmy bait in its royal DNA. But »

Keri Russell on the "Perfect Timing" of 'The Americans' Final Season

7 August 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

The Americans is gearing up for its sixth and final season, and star Keri Russell thinks the timing is just right.

"It's always nice to be able to be given the option to go out on a high note instead of at year 15 when they're running out of storylines," she tells The Hollywood Reporter. "It will be sad to see it go but the time is right."

Always a critical darling, the FX drama didn't break into the Emmys until last year, when it received its first series nomination and nods for stars Russell and Matthew Rhys. Though the »

Fan Favorites and Returning Characters Make Up Emmy Guest Star Line-Up

2 August 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Today’s television showrunners must throw the best dinner parties. Or at least they sure do know how to make a good guest list. From Alison Wright on FX’s “The Americans” and Hank Azaria on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” who are returning to series in roles where they had become fan favorites, to Matthew Rhys and Riz Ahmed, who each had standout work on HBO’s “Girls,” this year’s four Emmy categories for guest talent are stocked with nominees whose work has set the Twittersphere ablaze. The nominations also show that when voters like a show, they really like it, either giving blocks of nominations to actors from series such as “Saturday Night Live” and “This Is Us,” or recognizing an outstanding newcomer like Shannon Purser as part of the 18 nominations freshman series “Stranger Things” received.

“It’s human to want to be liked and seek affirmation,” says Wright, who »

Emmys 2017: Handicapping the Top Series and Performer Races

25 July 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s that time of year again, when champagne corks are popped all over Hollywood in honor of the Television Academy’s Emmy nominations. But the true celebration cannot begin until the winners are announced live on Sept. 17. With so much high-quality TV vying for the top prizes — and some surprises among the nominees — it’s shaping up to be one of the most competitive Emmy seasons in years. Here, Variety breaks down the key races.

Drama Series

Taking the torch from “Game of Thrones,” which has been the most-nominated series for the past few years, is fellow HBO genre series “Westworld.” The sci-fi thriller is tied with long-running variety sketch series “Saturday Night Live” at 22 noms this year, the most of any series. More notably, it’s also one of five freshman series in the race — and that buzz may well boost it over long-in-the-tooth “House of Cards” (six noms for the Netflix drama), or even »

Emmy Miracles Can Happen

13 July 2017 11:57 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Great acting conjures worlds. We are living in a golden age of magical special effects, on large and small screens. But smart writers know that the skills of the very best actors can transport and move viewers like nothing else.

An actor locked into a career-making performance can simply tell a story, and even if we can’t necessarily see what they’re describing, we are right there with them — imagining, remembering, under their spells. Carrie Coon and Aisha Hinds were in very different shows this year, but they both provided more than ample proof of this very point. Emmy voters would do well to remember Coon’s brilliant performance as a lead actress in HBO’s “The Leftovers,” and in the guest actress in a drama category, Aisha Hinds’ name should appear for her transfixing performance as Harriet Tubman in “Underground.”

Both of these potential nominations might be seen as the longest of long shots. But »

Emmys Add Diverse Range of Nominees In 2017

13 July 2017 11:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After #OscarsSoWhite, when every single one of the 20 Oscar acting nominations were given to white thespians, the Emmy nominations continue to reveal far more diversity in the television industry.

Unlike the movie business, more television shows are aimed at more diverse audiences from the start, which gives some 20,000 Emmy voters a wealth of options. The television industry casts a wider net, aiming shows at every audience segment, especially women, who are consistently underserved by the Hollywood studios, despite their strong box office stats. And television series can take more chances on giving shows time to find their core audience.

The diversity of the Emmy acting nominees held steady with 2016. Among this year’s 75 nominees in 12 major long-form acting categories (not including guest or short form), 16 nominees, or 21 percent, were people of color. Eleven acting categories boasted at least one nominee of color, »

Emmys 2017: Breaking Down 13 Major Snubs

With last year's big winner Game of Thrones taking an Emmys' year off and Peak TV continued to Peak, there were more rookies than ever fighting for attention in the awards show's nominations this year – The Crown, Stranger Things, Atlanta, The Handmaid’s Tale. This year, they had no choice but to break some of their bad habits regarding rewarding the same ol' same ol' – and they did some of that. Which doesn't mean there aren't some headslapping snubs in this year's Emmys picks. No Michael McKean for Better Call Saul? »

Emmys: No ‘Game of Thrones’ Means New Drama Champs Will Be Crowned

13 July 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There was an interesting byproduct of series like “Game of Thrones” and “Orphan Black” sitting out this year’s Emmy race, and others like “Mr. Robot” stumbling with voters this time around: all seven major drama competitions are without a defending champ.

HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” which nearly over-shadowed the Thursday morning nominations announcement with a lavish season seven premiere at Los Angeles’ Walt Disney Concert Hall Wednesday night, took the drama series crown last year. This year, with all that chain mail on the sidelines, the race will be between “Better Call Saul,” “The Crown,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “House of Cards,” “Stranger Things,” “This is Us” and “Westworld.”

Last year’s lead actor winner, meanwhile, was “Mr. Robot’s” Rami Malek. He was passed over this time, leaving Sterling K. Brown (“This is Us”), Anthony Hopkins (“Westworld”), Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”), Matthew Rhys (“The Americans”), Liev Schreiber (“Ray Donovan”), Kevin Spacey (“House of Cards”) and »

Emmy Nominations: The Biggest Snubs and Surprises

13 July 2017 9:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With more than 400 television shows to choose from and only a handful of ballot slots per category, the 21,000-plus voting members of the TV Academy had no choice but to leave quite a few strong contenders off the 2017 Emmy ballots. However, with such a plethora of worthy candidates, there were also quite a few pleasant surprises along the way. Now that the official nominations have been announced, Variety breaks down the biggest snubs and surprises of this small-screen award season.

Snub: Oprah Winfrey

You may have thought the Academy could never snub Winfrey — voters just spot her name on the ballot, and even if they haven’t seen her in the role for which she’s nominated, they’ll usually still give her the nod. But this year that proved not to be true, as Winfrey was overlooked for limited series “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.”

Surprise: “Westworld” ties with “Saturday Night Live” for the most »

‘Saturday Night Live,’ ‘Westworld’ Top 2017 Emmy Nominations

13 July 2017 8:44 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s “Westworld” and NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” tied for the most nominations for the 2017 Emmy Awards, earning the most with 22 each.

HBO’s drama scored with viewers, averaging 12 million per episode across all its platforms — the most ever for a freshman series on the cabler. It’s been renewed for a second season, though no premiere date has been announced.

NBC’s veteran sketch show, “SNL,” similarly enjoyed a ratings surge this season, fueled by the swirl of headlines from the election and the Trump Administration, and star turns from Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump and Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer (both were nominated). This past season ranked as its most-watched in 23 years.

Netflix’s freshman hit “Stranger Things,” meanwhile, landed 19 nominations, with noms for best drama, supporting actress Millie Bobby Brown, and supporting actor David Harbour, among others. “Feud: Bette and Joan” also nabbed 18 noms, thanks to lead actresses Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon and »
