Oprah Winfrey, Kerry Washington Pay Tribute to Cicely Tyson, African-American Achievements in TV

14 May 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Who knew? The first African American to appear on television was famed Olympian Jesse Owens, who was featured on an experimental NBC broadcast in 1936.

This little-know fact and many others were shared Wednesday night at the Paley Center for Media’s tribute to African-American achievements in television. The gathering at Cipriani Wall Street was emotional and educational for many in attendance.

Oprah Winfrey was host for the evening which included special tributes to Cicely Tyson and Bet Networks, which is marking its 35th anniversary this year. The presentation offered a look at black achievements in a range of sectors, from news and sports to variety shows, drama and comedy.

Tyson, it was noted, was the first black actress to wear her hair naturally on a primetime series when she was a regular on CBS’ “Eastside, Westside” in the early 1960s.

“We’re not there yet,” Tyson told the crowd regarding equality on screen, »

TVLine's Performer of the Week: Christina Hendricks

9 May 2015 7:56 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Christina Hendricks

The Show | Mad Men

The Episode | “Lost Horizon” (May 3)

The Performance | As much as Mad Men‘s seven-season run has been about Don’s identity issues and Peggy’s quest to have it all, it’s also been about Joan’s fight to be taken seriously as a smart, beautiful woman in field full of men, their egos and their wandering hands. So it’s fitting that Christina Hendricks’ crowning episode was one in which she played Joan at both her hell-yeah highs and oh-no lows.

It started when Mrs. Harris, accustomed to the status she »

ABC has been looking for a compatible lead-out sitcom for Modern Family for some time and it looks like they've found it in Black-ish. The Wednesday night comedy has been picked up for a second season.

On Black-ish, patriarch Dre Johnson (Anthony Anderson) begins to wonder if his success has caused him and his family to lose touch with their roots. The rest of the family is played by Tracee Ellis Ross, Yara Shahidi, Marcus Scribner, Miles Brown, Marsai Martin, and Laurence Fishburne.

‘Black-ish’ Star Anthony Anderson Recalls His Nickelodeon Days

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

Anthony Anderson, who won an NAACP Image Award this year for his starring role on ABC’s “Black-ish,” has also earned kudos for his work on “Barbershop” and “The Departed.” But it was a part in the TV sci-fier “Alien Avengers” and in Nickelodeon’s Big Help-a-Thon that were his entre to Variety.

How did you get involved with Help-a-Thon?

I was on the Saturday-morning TV show “Hang Time.” When Nickelodeon asked me to come on, I jumped at that opportunity. It was about donating time to your community — and it was cool to just be a part of that movement.

How did you break into the biz?

I got an acting scholarship to Howard University, and then returned to L.A. I didn’t even have agents, but I would crash friends’ auditions. Casting director Jaki Brown-Karman saw something in me, and would call me for auditions. I was »

Nominees for the Critics Choice Television Awards include “24: Live Another Day” and many more

7 May 2015 4:40 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Yesterday, the nominations for the 5th annual Critics Choice Television Awards were announced. The sister group to the Critics Choice Movie Awards, this is what could be looked at as a bit of an Emmy Awards precursor, if you will. I’m not exactly an expert when it comes to TV and this awards season (it’s mostly film or bust for me in that regard), but I watch a handful of shows and follow along with the race. Not enough to accurately do predictions, mind you, but I did think this nomination announcement was worthy of a mention. As such, today we have the list of Critics Choice nominees, which I’ll be revealing to you shortly. Among the titles that fared best this year with the nominations, we have Justified lead the way with five nominations. Following that, we have The Americans, The Good Wife, and Transparent with four apiece. »

Critics’ Choice TV Award Nominations Spotlight Justified, Silicon Valley, and More

6 May 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ah, the Critics' Choice Awards. Or more accurately, "what you wish the Emmy nominations looked like." Like the Emmys, HBO features heavily in the list this year (27 nominations), but unlike the Emmys, so does the very deserving FX (16 nominations). Even the CW gets a look-in here, along with individual and fantastic series like Wolf Hall (PBS) and Rectify (Sundance). The list may still not be perfect, but it's pretty darn close. The 5th Annual Critics' Choice Television Awards, held by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, will be broadcast live on May 31st at 8 p.m. on A&E. Check out the full list of nominees below: Best comedy series Broad City (Comedy Central) Jane the Virgin (The CW) Mom (CBS) Silicon Valley (HBO) Transparent (Amazon) Veep (HBO) You’re the Worst (FX) [caption id="attachment_410423" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Fox[/caption] Best actor in a comedy series Anthony Anderson, Blackish (ABC) Chris Messina, The Mindy Project (Fox) Jeffrey Tambor, »

5th Critics’ Choice Television Awards Nominations Dominated By HBO And FX

6 May 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

It’s time to start honoring television again, and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association has released their (our) nominations for the 5th Annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards.

HBO comes out especially strong with a whopping 27 nominations.

Justified‘s final season earned it a tie with Olive Kitteridge for the most series nominations (5)

 

Any release of nominees also means its time to talk snubs, and generally start the wheels of backlash turning, and I want to know you’re reaction.

But, before that kicks off, lets see who the nominees are.

By the way, don’t miss the awards! Sunday, May 31st at 8:00pm Et on A&E!

 

 

HBO leads the networks in nominations with 27, followed by FX which garnered 16.  Topping the list of nominated series are Justified (FX) and Olive Kitteridge (HBO), both with five nominations.  The Americans (FX),Bessie (HBO), The Good Wife (CBS), Transparent (Amazon) and Wolf Hall »

Critics’ Choice TV Award Nominations Announced; Justified, Olive Kitteridge Leading The Pack

6 May 2015 10:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Critics’ Choice TV Awards, long a better measure of quality on the small screen than the Emmy Awards, unveiled the nominees in this year’s race today, with the final season of FX’s Justified and HBO miniseries Olive Kitteridge both leading with five total nominations.

Other big winners include FX’s acclaimed spy drama The Americans, Amazon’s revelatory comedy Transparent, PBS series Wolf Hall (a latecomer to the field that clearly made a big impression), HBO biopic Bessie and CBS stalwart The Good Wife, all with four nominations.

From a different perspective, the most exciting nominations come in the form of the freshman nominees. You’re the Worst, one of my favorite shows of last year, is going up against HBO’s heavy hitters like Veep and Silicon Valley – ahead of its season 2 bow, the nod will certainly do wonders for the series, which FX has shuffled to less-proven sister network Fxx. »
