Primetime Emmy Awards Target Game Of Thrones

14 July 2016 12:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Emmy nods have hit the Internet, and there are a few surprises among these stellar examples of Primetime TV. Game of Thrones leads the pack with a whopping 23 nominations, which probably will not surprise anyone who has tuned in to the show this season. It’s certainly one of the better programs on TV right now, and this season has been particularly stellar.

More surprising – and, in some ways, more deserved – are several nods to Mr. Robot, including an Outstanding Drama and Lead Actor In A Drama for Rami Malek. Christian Slater gets nothing, despite his Golden Globe win, but I guess we can’t have everything. While Malek has some serious competition in his category, including Hollywood heavyweights Liev Schrieber and Kevin Spacey, here’s hoping that he takes home the prize. He certainly deserves it.

While Game of Thrones dominates in many categories, there’s quite a »

Emmy Nominations 2016: full nominee list

Chris Longo Jul 15, 2016

The Television Academy has spoken! Here are your 2016 Emmy Nominations...

The time to fill out your Emmy Madness Bracket is now. Wait, wrong event. But that would be fun, wouldn’t it? Kirsten Dunst slugging it out versus her network foe Sarah Paulson for Emmy gold. How about perennial favorite Game Of Thrones pitted against underdog newcomer Mr. Robot in the championship round? In the “peak TV” era, maybe a bracket formatted competition is the only true way to determine the best in the world of television.

Anyway, we’ll have to settle for fan polls and speculation as we countdown to the 68th Annual Emmy Award on Sunday, Sept. 18th on ABC. Until then, here is the list of nominees for the major categories. You can find the full list here.

Emmys 2016 Nominations: ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Mr. Robot,’ ‘The Americans’ Get Major Nods

14 July 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The critics spoke, and TV Academy members listened.

Two TV critic faves, “The Americans” and “Mr. Robot,” managed to break through and land Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Drama category this year, while the comedy category was also dominated by well-reviewed series, such as newcomer “Master of None.”

The Television Academy’s attempts in recent years to broaden its membership, expand categories and open up its voting process continues to pay off, as new blood managed to sneak into many of the major categories. Not only did “The Americans” and “Mr. Robot” break through on the series side, but several of the shows’ leads landed their first-ever Emmy acting nomination.

But many favorites also returned with a splash as well, including last year’s Outstanding Drama Series winner, “Game of Thrones.” The HBO juggernaut landed 23 nominations, the most of any program this year – and down just a tick from last »

My Fearless, Somewhat Frightening 2016 Emmy Predictions

13 July 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Last year it was Jane the Virgin that got screwed. This year I have a sinking feeling it’s going to be Mr. Robot.

Emmy Nominations will be announced Thursday at 11:30 am Est (stay glued to TVLine for the complete rundown/analysis!) and my gut is telling me that USA Network’s breakout hacker drama — and its sterling ensemble, led by Rami Malek and Christian Slater — will be completely shut out.

The Top 10 TV Shows of 2016, So Far

8 July 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

10. “The Night Manager

It took Oscar-winning filmmaker Susanne Bier to finally bring John Le Carre’s espionage thriller to life, and boy, did she ever. The miniseries was striking in every way, from the global locales and picturesque hotels to the way characters were displayed upon such backdrops. More than just eye candy, Tom Hiddleston as soldier-turned-spy Jonathan Pine was a man with a mission, quietly stoic in the face of his nemesis Richard Roper, played with dangerous glee by Hugh Laurie. Olivia Colman brought the heart, Elizabeth Debicki the heartache and Tom Hollander a sense of impotent rage. The storytelling was large in scale yet intimate in how it played out, and it’s no wonder that viewers are hoping for more, even though Le Carre never wrote a sequel.

Emmys Dream Ballot: The Most Deserving Drama Nominees

5 July 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

On Thursday, July 14, the Television Academy will announce the nominees for the 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, and we have all the faith in the world they’ll get every single choice just right.

Ok, maybe they won’t, but only because the 19,000-plus voters literally can’t get every choice right. Unless all the categories squeeze out miraculous ties resulting in extra nominees — similar to last year’s Supporting Actress in a Comedy category — there are simply too many outstanding series and performers to fit on the overall ballot.

So our choices below not only represent IndieWire’s highest recommendations in the top-line drama categories, but also some of the shows and performers overlooked thus far in the campaign season. It would be grand to hear their names announced come nomination day, but we just hope they know how much their work has been appreciated this past TV season. »

Bryan Cranston Game For Walter White Cameo In Better Call Saul

30 June 2016 7:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since AMC issued the go-ahead on Better Call Saul, speculation ran amok over the possibility of Walter White popping up in Slippin’ Jimmy’s origins story; perhaps not as the marauding alter-ego we know and fear, but a pre-Heisenberg Walter White that was more concerned about cooking breakfast and teaching chemistry than climbing to the tip-top of Albuquerque’s drug ring.

Much like Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman, key creatives behind the spinoff series – namely Vince Gilligan – have stated before that it’s it’s really a question of when, rather than if Walter White will appear, and during a recent interview with The Rich Eisen Show (via ScreenRant), Bryan Cranston himself has declared he is “all in” for a cameo.

“I owe Vince Gilligan so much. He was my champion to get [the Walter White] role. I was the guy coming off Malcolm in the Middle. If they were to call me and say, »

Bryan Cranston on returning as Walter White: He’s ‘all in’

30 June 2016 2:28 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Say what you want, Better Call Saul is slowly turning into greatness. Just two seasons in and we’re already hooked. With the likes of Breaking Bad characters like Mike Ehrmentraut (Jonathan Banks) and Tuco Salmanca (Raymond Cruz) already popping up fans are getting hopeful of a return of the ultimate – Bryan Cranston‘s Walter White, probably one of the greatest TV characters of the last 10 years.

Well, Cranston has been on the road on the interview circuit and the subject of Bb and a potential return to the prequel series Better Call Saul has popped up.

Speaking on The Rich Eisen Show Cranston said, “I owe Vince Gilligan so much. He was my champion to get [the Walter White] role. I was the guy coming off Malcolm in the Middle. If they were to call me and say, ‘We have this idea, we’d like … ,’ I would say, ‘Yes, you don’t have to finish the pitch. »
