Sterling K. Brown Opens Up About His Historic Emmy Win in Morning-After Interview

20 September 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sterling K. Brown can’t stop smiling.

It’s the morning after his momentous win at the Emmy Awards, and Brown is still grinning from ear to ear. Even on just a few hours sleep, it would be hard to extinguish that famous blinding white beam, what with back-to-back trophies to his name. After winning last year for his work as Christopher Darden in “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” on Sunday night he took home the prize for best actor in a drama for “This Is Us,” as the anxiety-ridden but oh-so-lovable Randall Pearson on the NBC-20th Century Fox production.

It’s been nearly two decades since a black actor claimed the prize — a profound fact that was not lost on Brown. Andre Braugher, who starred in NBC’s “Homicide,” was one of the first people he thanked in his acceptance speech. “It is my supreme honor to follow in your footsteps,” he »

18 September 2017 6:42 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Why does Veep boss David Mandel owe Silicon Valley executive producer Alec Berg $1,000? Does the Emmy statuette really hold an atom of boron? What's the connection between Andre Braugher and Sterling K. Brown? Why did Dave Chappelle shout out D.C. public schools? What's South Asian Youth Action? And who is Hiro Murai?

These are just some of the questions that Emmy viewers, especially ones who don't work in or closely follow the entertainment industry, may have had as host Stephen Colbert, presenters and winners made references to lesser-known facts and public figures.

Emmys 2017 Acceptance Speeches: Were Certain Winners Cut Off Too Soon? Analyzing the Numbers

18 September 2017 6:06 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One of the more eyebrow-raising moments of the 69th annual Emmy Awards came when Sterling K. Brown, accepting the award for Best Actor in a Drama (the first time the Emmy had gone to an African-American man since Andre Braugher in 1998, whom Brown name-checked), was cut off mid-speech. It’s a pattern familiar to those who watch awards shows, especially given that the award was one of the last of the night. But exactly how long had Brown been talking at that point? And how did the length of his speech compare to others of the evening?

IndieWire crunched the numbers and has the answers. We clocked the runtimes for each acceptance speech (as hosted on CBS’s official YouTube page), beginning our timer with the first word or “Ummmm” spoken into the microphone, listing them in ascending order of length. There’s no explicit pattern to why a speech »

Emmy Winners Make History: Firsts, Mosts and Other Milestone Wins

17 September 2017 9:09 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

While every Emmy win is noteworthy, several this year were downright historical.

Take Atlanta auteur Donald Glover, who early in Sunday night’s ceremony became the first black person to win an Emmy for directing for a comedy. Ever. And this was the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony. (Later in the night, Glover claimed a second prize, for lead comedy actor.)

“I’m glad I was able to make history, but that’s not what I was trying to do. I’m trying to make the best product,” Glover said backstage after winning. “I believe the people deserve quality, and when they taste it, »

This Is Us' Sterling K. Brown: How His Emmys Speech Should Have Ended

17 September 2017 8:41 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

When the Emmys Powers That Be decided that Sterling K. Brown‘s acceptance speech had gone on too long Sunday, the orchestra’s volume rose until the This Is Us star was effectively played off stage.

But Brown, who took home the trophy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, wasn’t going out like that.

Backstage, in the press room, he was able to finish the speech that was drowned out during the telecast. Here’s what you didn’t hear:

I wanted to thank our writers. A show doesn’t get seven acting nominations without some impeccable, »

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Breaks the Emmy Awards Streaming Barrier, One of Several Records Shattered This Year

17 September 2017 8:34 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The streaming TV biz passed the ultimate Emmy threshold on Sunday night, as Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” made history.

“Handmaid’s Tale” picked up the win for outstanding drama series, which represents the first time a streaming service had one won of the top Emmy series prizes. It was just four years ago, in 2013, that Netflix became the first streaming platform to win an Emmy, as “House of Cards” picked up a handful of victories.

“Streaming has arrived, and we’re here to say what a wonderful journey,” said “Handmaid’s Tale” executive producer Warren Littlefield. Added exec producer Bruce Miller: “The way Hulu handled our show, they were bold and behind us and committed to making something interesting.”

The fact that Hulu was the first to land a top Emmy series prize, rather than Netflix, is a bit surprising, as Netflix came into this year’s »

Sterling K. Brown Gets Played Off Stage After Historic Emmy Win

17 September 2017 8:29 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sterling K. Brown got played off the stage while accepting the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama series.

The “This Is Us” star made history with his victory, becoming the first black actor in 19 years to win in that category, following Andre Braugher for “Homicide: Life on the Streets” in 1998, James Earl Jones for “Gabriel’s Fire” in 1991, and Bill Cosby for “I Spy” between 1966 and 1968. Brown also won an Emmy last year for outstanding supporting actor in a limited series or movie for his role as prosecutor Christopher Darden in FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.”

Brown said he is a fan of his fellow nominees Anthony Hopkins, Bob Odenkirk, Matthew Rhys, Liev Schreiber, Kevin Spacey, and co-star Milo Ventimiglia (“first, last, and always a fan” ), and thanked his castmates.

“Milo, Mandy, Justin, Chrissy, you are the best white TV family that a brother has ever had — better than »

Emmys: ‘Big Little Lies,’ ‘Handmaid’s Tale,’ ‘SNL’ Dominate

17 September 2017 5:34 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Saturday Night Live” and “Big Little Lies” dominated early Sunday at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Kate McKinnon and Alec Baldwin took home best supporting comedy actress and actor awards for their work on the NBC comedy franchise, which also won for best variety sketch program. But the “SNL” influence was present even before awards began being handed out.

In the highlight of Stephen Colbert’s monologue, the night’s host introduced a surprise guest — former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. In a reference to Melissa McCarthy’s popular “SNL” parody of him, Spicer wheeled a podium onstage. Colbert set Spicer up for a gag about the show’s ratings.

Calling back to his claims regarding Trump’s inauguration viewership, Spicer declared Sunday’s “the biggest audience to witness an Emmys period both in person and around the world!”

Accepting the variety-sketch award, series creator Lorne Michaels referenced the political climate that has powered the show »

‘BoJack Horseman’ Season 4 Guest Stars: A Visual Guide to Who Played Who in Hollywoo

10 September 2017 7:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s note: The below contains major casting and minor plot spoilers for all of “BoJack Horseman” Season 4.]

The general rule with the “Hollywoo” satire “BoJack Horseman” is that you can assume any famous person mentioned by name is probably playing themselves. But beyond that, the show has a knack for lining up a fearsomely talented guest voice cast beyond its already stunning ensemble to play some of its most compelling roles, and Season 4 brought in an impressive array of new and semi-returning faces.

We’ve assembled the below guide to this year’s new characters, for that moment when you say to yourself “Wait, was that…?”

‘BoJack Horseman’ Review: Season 4 Confronts the Past For Its Most Honest And Soulful Season Yet

30 August 2017 12:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Heading into Season 4 of Netflix’s “BoJack Horseman,” it’s understandable to be a little unsure about the show’s direction.

Unlike past installments of the animated series created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, there was no obvious arc to hook the action. Season 1 revolved around former ’90s sitcom star BoJack (voiced by Will Arnett) collaborating with writer Diane (Alison Brie) on his memoir;  Season 2 focused on the production of BoJack’s dream project “Secretariat”; Season 3 followed BoJack’s subsequent journey through the Hollywoo (not Hollywood) awards season.

When it came to the fourth season, the end of Season 3 put into motion a few key future storylines – but left BoJack himself totally adrift. It’s a choice that fit perfectly with the show’s at times bleak and existential outlook on life, but one that meant Season 4 would begin as a relatively unknown quantity.

The 25 Best TV Comedy Ensembles of the Last 25 Years, Ranked

9 August 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A great ensemble creates a mysterious bond between a show and its viewers. The chemistry shared on screen brings with it a certain level of comfort.

But to refer to this quality as some kind of supernatural power does a disservice to the men and women who forge it. There is the talent of each individual performer to consider: If any of them falter, the whole dynamic falls apart. It’s a dynamic that requires work, too. Whether it’s bonding in real-life or being a good listener on set, chemistry is a science for these casts; it’s made, not found.

Then there’s the versatility of expanding these connections beyond just one or two cast members, but an entire ensemble of six or so series regulars. The best ensembles work no matter who’s paired up in a scene, and it feels like the TV can barely contain »

Exclusive: Why Sterling K. Brown Is Keeping It All in Perspective

14 June 2017 12:46 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Sterling K. Brown isn’t used to being in demand.

“Busy. That’s the most apt description I can come up with, and busy is good,” Brown says of his life over the past whirlwind year and a half. The actor is speaking to Et by phone from a car on his way to the airport to catch a flight from New York City, where he’s just wrapped a photo shoot, to return to Vancouver set of the upcoming Predator reboot.

It’s been nearly a decade and a half, Brown says, “of showing up and saying your lines and then going on to the next project, hoping that one job moves into the next. But this has been a situation where people actually want to hear what I think. This is all still new.”

Emmys: 5 Pressing Questions With Voting Underway

12 June 2017 12:20 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ballots make their way to the 21,000-plus voting members of the TV Academy on Monday. Two weeks of voting will follow, with the nominations for the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards set to be revealed on July 13. Here are a few pressing questions as another “for your consideration” season enters the home stretch.

Something has to give with all these sterling debut series, right?

It’s unsurprising that in an era of peak TV, the list of Emmy submissions has reached record levels this year. More than 9,000, in fact, according to newly elected TV Academy chairman and CEO Hayma Washington. As a result, voters will be inundated with more content than ever before. How and where will they embrace the slew of new programs, though? For example, you could easily whip up a best drama series category full of debuts. Conversely, how great will the instinct be to cling to standbys in the face of this glut? There »
