Emmys 2017: nominees 'chuffed', 'thrilled' (and determined to try harder)

13 July 2017 11:42 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

What Thursday morning’s nominees are saying.

There were plenty of smiles after the nominations were announced. Click here for the list.

Outstanding Drama Series

“Chuffed, thrilled, proud, honoured! So delighted for everyone involved. A proper fat cigar moment, if only I smoked. Drinks all round, if only I drank. I shall have to make do with turning cartwheels.”

Peter Morgan, The Crown

“Best morning ever! So thrilling to be recognized especially in such a wide range of categories! When we at 21 Laps first read the Duffer Brothers’ pilot two years ago, we knew it and they were something special. My collaboration with these mad genius twins, and the way our incredible cast and crew have helped bring the Duffer brothers’ vision and voice to life, is thrilling. We set out to make this weird little show because we loved it. The way it’s been embraced by fans, critics and now the Television Academy has turned »

Emmys 2017 Snubs and Surprises: ‘Transparent,’ ‘The Leftovers,’ and Pamela Adlon(!)

13 July 2017 9:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A “snub” implies a conscious dismissal; a knowing exclusion; a willful act of disdainful rebuffing. And in the era of “too much TV,” the idea of Emmy voters purposefully boxing out anyone other than Donald Trump is a bit nutty. Those who don’t make the cut aren’t “snubs” so much as they’re… leftovers.

But the 2017 nomination list sure was filled with surprises, good and bad. And while we’d like to refer to the surprising exclusions as leftovers, that’s just too darn confusing when so many of the excluded came from a show called “The Leftovers.” So we’re sticking with snubs. Just know that we know the TV Academy didn’t mean anything by it.

The Snubs

“The Americans”

After breaking into the major categories for the first time last year, FX’s critically acclaimed drama was kicked right back out of the Drama Series race. »

‘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 »

Emmys Wish List: Fingers Crossed for These 10 Deserving Contenders

12 July 2017 1:40 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Nominations for the 69th annual Emmy Awards will be revealed tomorrow morning. As ever, we can only hope the 21,000-plus voting members can find interesting ways to acknowledge the year in television, rather than leaning on old standbys out of habit or, worse, ignorance to what’s fresh. You certainly can’t blame campaigns for doing everything they can to break through the glut.

While ballots were turned in two weeks ago and nothing I can do or say will influence the vote at this point, there are nevertheless a few deserving contenders worth championing that are at best on the bubble for a nomination, at worst completely buried by other choices. Fingers crossed we hear these names called tomorrow.

Fleabag

Might as well start with the longest of shots. Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s six-episode series was one of the best things I saw on the small screen this year. It »

8 Burning Questions Before Emmy Nominations

11 July 2017 4:06 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The annual unveiling of the Emmy nominations always brings with it a certain sense of predictability: The Academy has its favorites, and there’s no doubt we’ll see many of them anointed when the list is unveiled on Thursday. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jeffrey Tambor — congratulations in advance.

But this awards season may yet offer some surprises. It has been shaken up by the absence of past heavy-hitters like “Game of Thrones,” ineligible because of its late summer premiere date, as well as the onslaught of Peak TV, which brought with it a slew of high-profile freshmen series that the Academy simply can’t ignore. (They wouldn’t dare, would they?)

So while the prognosticators (us included!) offer predictions for who’ll be named on Thursday, there are also some key questions to consider:

Will Hulu finally become an awards contender?

It just takes one — and after years of trying with “The Path,” “11/22/63,” and »

Midway Oscars Forecast: A Cluttered Landscape for Indies and Streamers

29 June 2017 4:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It was barely four months ago that director Barry Jenkins stood alongside the baffled cast and crew of “Moonlight” at the Dolby Theatre after defying virtually every known Oscar convention in spectacular, immortal fashion. But just eight short weeks from now, the season will purr right back to life at the Venice and Telluride film festivals. Hollywood will set its sights on that coveted gold statuette for the 90th time, and a new flock of prestige productions will vie for the industry’s top honor.

New York-based distributor A24’s victory brought the best picture tally for independents (and studio dependents) up to nine over the past decade. The only major studio to score in that stretch was Warner Bros. with “Argo,” as the game of Oscar continues to be one of bolstering the financial outlook of artistic risks that conglomerate-tethered companies feel they can’t afford. A glance at the horizon this year reveals a healthy »

‘Better Call Saul’ Season 4 Renewed for 2018 Premiere

27 June 2017 5:17 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

It took longer than fans could stomach but AMC has finally renewed Better Call Saul for Season 4.

The cable network has ordered up 10 all-new episodes that will debut sometime in 2018. Exactly when is anyone's guess based on the late renewal.

Showrunners Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have publicly addressed the late renewal and placed blame on staff shakeups within Sony. Apparently everything has been ironed out and the writer's room can officially convene.

Better Call Saul Season 3 wrapped up a little over a week ago by propelling the series ever closer to its inevitable collision with Breaking Bad. Chuck (Michael McKean) finally ran out of reasons to live and painfully set his house on fire, leaving viewers wondering if he made it out alive.

Now the painful wait to catch up with Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk), Kim (Rhea Seehorn), Mike (Jonathan Banks) and the rest of the gang officially begins. »

How 'Better Call Saul' Secretly Became One of TV's Best Dramas

20 June 2017 8:39 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

You can have too much of a good thing – if the saga of Walter White taught us nothing else, it surely taught us that. So when creator Vince Gilligan teamed up with writer Peter Gould to create a prequel to Breaking Bad – starring comedian Bob Odenkirk's sleazeball ambulance-chaser Saul Goodman – it was hard not to think they were aping their own creation. Wasn't returning to this world so soon, to tell the origin story of a drastically different kind of person, hubris on a Heisenbergian scale?

It's now safe to say that, »
