These four funnymen all have had varying degrees […] »

Pamela Adlon and Anthony Anderson Talk Tapping Into Personal Stories on the Road to Emmy

16 August 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Pamela Adlon and Anthony Anderson both logged many years as supporting players before getting the chance to star in comedy series that are deeply rooted in their own lives. Anderson has earned three consecutive Emmy nominations for lead comedy actor for his work on ABC’s “Black-ish.” Adlon elbowed past competitors on higher-profile shows to land a nom for her auteur vehicle, FX’s “Better Things.” Anderson took a break from filming season four and Adlon ducked out of post-production on season two to speak with Variety about their work, their career trajectories and why it truly is a win simply to be nominated for an Emmy.

What is the value of an Emmy nomination to an actor who is already well-established?

Pamela Adlon: It feels surreal. It wasn’t even on my radar on the day that they announced it because I’m pretty happy just being able to make my own show. I »

Emmys: As Final Voting Begins, One Last Stand for Broadcast?

14 August 2017 6:06 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Monday kicks off two straight weeks of last-ditch campaigning for this year’s Emmy contenders. Final ballots are due by 10 p.m. Pt on Monday, Aug. 28, and then it’s three more grueling weeks of nominees holding their collective breath for the Sept. 17 Primetime Emmys ceremony.

Throughout the main categories, an interesting note arises: If you’re eager to stand up for broadcast, now is your chance. And it couldn’t come at a better moment.

Netflix made huge waves in the wee hours of the night by announcing that the streamer had enticed hitmaker Shonda Rhimes over to its shore. The move instantly recalled a prophecy from FX president John Landgraf at this year’s Television Critics Assn. tour: “Wait for the epic, titanic battle for talent that’s coming.” The major networks are no doubt feeling vulnerable — but they have strong representatives in the race to rally behind.

Kesha Is Surprisingly Good at ‘Password,’ But Jimmy Fallon Blows the Game (Video)

11 August 2017 7:22 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jimmy Fallon really let Kesha down — and on the eve of her big album drop, no less. The two teamed up Thursday night for a game of “Password,” taking on the unlikely duo of Anthony Anderson and NPR’s Terry Gross. When Fallon and Kesha jumped out to a huge lead, it looked like they would cruise to an easy victory. Unfortunately, the NBC late-night personality got a little too cutesy on the last clue, handing the points — and game — to Team Anderson/Gross. Kesha could not have been more disappointed.

Kesha and Jimmy Fallon teamed up to play Password against Anthony Anderson and Terry Gross on Thursday's Tonight Show.

The game involves a contestant giving their partner a one-word clue and then their teammate has to guess what the password is. 

Things started out simply enough when Kesha said Chipotle for "burrito" and Fallon guessed accurately. Then Anderson was given "Snoop" as his password and the game heated up.

"Fo' shizzle," said Anderson to Gross. She looked at him blankly and said, "I can't say Jay-z." Anderson repeated "Fo' shizzle" but Gross never guessed what he was hinting at. Then »
