9 Lessons Studio Films Should Take From The Indie World This Summer

25 August 2016 9:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Much has been written about just how dismal this year’s summer movies have been, but one of the silver linings in such a poor season has remarkably been indies. Where blockbusters like “The Legend Of Tarzan,” “Warcraft” and “X-Men: Apocalypse” failed, indies such as “The Lobster,” “Cafe Society” and “Love and Friendship” succeeded. And while studios were certainly rolling in cash when it came to “Suicide Squad” and “The Secret Life Of Pets,” critics weren’t exactly impressed. It was a rough season for studio films, but it won’t be a total waste if executives can learn from their mistakes and start course correcting. Below, we look towards the indie world in order to offer up the biggest lessons for studio films.

The Ghostbusters actor and former Saturday Night Live cast member will be receiving the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor this year, becoming the 19th recipient of the award.

Lily Tomlin Talks Being ‘Older’ and ‘Grateful to Have a Job’ at Emmy Celebration

23 August 2016 10:37 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Emmy nominees gathered to celebrate with Television Academy Governors Lily Tomlin and Bob Bergen on Monday night at the Montage Beverly Hills.

When Variety asked if she was still in pursuit of the Egot (an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony win), Tomlin said, “I think it should be a Pegot because I have two Peabodys and I’d be that much closer. The Oscar is elusive.” As for her “Grace and Frankie” nomination, Tomlin reflected, “Those of us who are older, we’re so grateful to have a job. We love our company. We have fun.”

Sterling K. Brown, meanwhile, is still adjusting to life as an Emmy nominee for “The People v. O.J. SimpsonAmerican Crime Story.” “It feels good. I’m a fan first and foremost. There are a lot of people I’m looking forward to meeting: Bryan Cranston. I’ll probably geek out a little bit when I meet him. It »

Why Julia Louis-Dreyfus Deserves Her Fifth ‘Veep’ Emmy: IndieWire’s Emmys Endorsements (Comedy)

17 August 2016 12:44 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Comedy Series

Black-ish

Master of None

Modern Family

Silicon Valley

Transparent

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Veep

IndieWire’s Vote: “Veep

It hurts us to think “Transparent” and “Master of None” may never get a turn at the table, especially this year after both delivered such stellar seasons: Jill Soloway’s follow-up far surpassed her already impressive first season, and Aziz Ansari’s Netflix debut showed just how diversity in front of and behind the camera can benefit our culture (not to mention how smart, insightful writing can still appeal to mainstream audiences). But David Mandel pulled off an equally impressive feat by matching (if not besting) “Veep” creator Armando Iannucci’s Emmy-winning prior season, stepping into massive shoes and running a six-minute mile without tripping. The best comedy, nay, the best series on TV remains the one to beat this Emmys season. All hail the queen.

Fresh Faces Like Ellie Kemper, Tracee Ellis Ross Buoy Comedy Actress Emmy Race

10 August 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Much has been made about TV Academy members’ recent break from tradition to fill their Emmy Award nomination ballots with new and surprising choices. This is particularly true in the lead actress in a comedy race, where spots went to first-time nominees Tracee Ellis Ross from ABC’s “Black-ish” and Ellie Kemper from Netflix’s “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” Laurie Metcalf has three noms this year across various categories, including her first recognition in this category, thanks to her work in HBO’s “Getting On.”

The new blood could be due to such frequent nominees as Amy Poehler (“Parks and Recreation”) and Edie Falco (“Nurse Jackie”) no longer being eligible. “There were some incredible shows that ended last year, and that made room for some new faces. My own face happens to be particularly wide, so I am extra grateful that there was enough room for it,” Kemper jokes.

Joining these nominees in the category are returning talent »

TCA Awards 2016: ‘People v. O.J. Simpson’ Wins Big; Sarah Paulson, Rachel Bloom Take Acting Prizes

6 August 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Television Critics Association presented its 32nd annual TCA Awards ceremony on Saturday night, with FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” taking three prizes to lead the night, including the ceremony’s top award, Program of the Year. The show also earned the award for Outstanding Achievement in Movies, Miniseries and Specials, and Individual Achievement in Drama for star Sarah Paulson, who played troubled head prosecutor Marcia Clark.

The TCA Awards don’t separate their nominees or winners by gender, meaning Paulson was up against her “People v. O.J.” co-star Courtney B. Vance, “All The Way” star Bryan Cranston, “Mr. Robot’s” Rami Malek, Bob Odenkirk of “Better Call Saul” and Keri Russell of “The Americans” for the drama honor.

It was a triumphant night for women across the dial, as “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” star Rachel Bloom took home the award for Individual Achievement in Comedy, beating »

Congratulations, Lily Tomlin!

5 August 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Photographed by Sebastian Kim for Interview

Lily Tomlin will be honored with SAG's Lifetime Achievement Award at this January's ceremony. SAG is strong with the actress-loving (unlike Oscar). This marks the 4th year in a row that the award has gone to a woman following Carol Burnett, Debbie Reynolds, and Rita Moreno.

We celebrated Lily a lot here last year with a look at her filmography, my own top 10 choices amongst her performances and I was proud to be on the poster for Grandma extolling her virtues so we've already had our say. I only ask that during the clip reel they show something from I ♥️ Huckabees (2004) because I'll never get enough of that character. I wish she and Dustin Hoffman could do a whole series about them or at least occasional webisodes of the further adventures of Vivian and Bernard, Existential Detectives.

She has an ability to create diverse and distinct characters that are at once familiar, eccentric, and oh so honest—in a way that illuminates life’s hidden corners.” Carteris went on to cite some of Tomlin’s career »
