The Oscars are coming up, the Sundance and Berlin film festivals are just around the corner, and Hollywood is already taking the long distance view of the movies that will wow us in years to come. But it all starts with a good script, and today the annual The Black List is upon us, highlighting the very best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood. Voted on by executives and insiders, winding up on the list can lead to a tremendous career boost. Since 2005, Black List scripts have gone on to earn 196 Oscar nominations, resulting in 37 wins. In short, the players in Hollywood pay attention, as evidenced this year by a raft of big names—John August, Elizabeth Banks, Travis Beacham, Max Borenstein, Aline Brosh McKenna, Scott Z Burns, Ty Burrell, Damien Chazelle, Ava Duvernay, Nathan Fillion, Seth Grahame-Smith, Rian Johnson, Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, Simon Kinberg, Brian Koppelman, Alex Kurtzman, Allan. »

When Comedy Bang! Bang! debuted on IFC two years ago, transforming the free-form improv of its podcast sibling into a tight 22 minutes of television seemed like a tall order. That's why creator Scott Aukerman didn't try; his TV show is a much different beast from the podcast, and successfully so: The series kicks off its 40-episode fourth season next year. Deeply silly and never afraid to go on a surreal tangent, Comedy Bang! Bang! is one of a kind, even on the crowded cable spectrum. That's why we're excited to debut a couple clips from upcoming episodes. The first comes »

Though Modern Family saw a dip in the ratings last season, it's still ABC 's top-rated series. There's essentially no chance that it will be cancelled but, will the ratings continue to slide this year? Stay tuned.
Modern Family revolves around three Los Angeles families who are interrelated through Jay Pritchett and his two adult children. The ensemble cast is Ed O'Neill, Sofía Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, and Pierce Wallace.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

In case you we're sleeping (consider us extremely jealous) the full list of Golden Globe nominees was revealed this morning. Among the acting elite in the TV categories there were plenty of snubs and surprises that we need to discuss immediately. (And for all the movie buffs out there, take a look at our big screen edition of snubs and surprises.)
News: The Full List of Golden Globe Nominations!
Let's rave about these surprises:
1. Jane the Virgin: We've been in love with this show from the very beginning so to see The CW's freshman comedy snag a nod is beyond thrilling — especially since the series' captivating star Gina Rodriguez also made the ballot for Lead Actress in a Comedy. Fyi, this is a huge deal for The CW as these nominations mark the first Globe mentions for the network since its debut in 2006.
2. Transparent: We were »

See all the nominees right here.Some old favorites like "Modern Family" and "Mad Men" were completely shut out, making room for fresh blood this year ... with series like "Fargo," "True Detective" and even a shocker from The CW all getting noms for TV. The snubs weren't as big on the film side, so we'll start there with a full breakdown below.Film Snubs & Surprises"Unbroken": While it's clearly being promoted as an Oscar contender, the Angelina Jolie-directed film has been getting mixed reviews from critics. It currently sits with just a 55% on Rotten Tomatoes. The flick didn't garner one single nomination today. Pretty shocking that the HFPA once recognized Angie's work in "The Tourist" ... but not this."Interstellar": With »

On Wednesday, the Screen Actors Guild announced the nominees for the 21st annual SAG Awards, honoring achievements in film and TV performances. Among the top film nominees are Birdman and Boyhood, which have been leading the pack in nearly every accolade so far. On the TV side, Modern Family and Game of Thrones ran away with the most nominations in their respective genres.
The SAG Awards are considered to be one of the major honors of the season and a strong precursor of the Academy Awards. Last year, the four SAG Award winners – for Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, and Supporting Actress – went on to take home the Oscar in their respective categories.
Check out a complete list of nominations below:

The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations were revealed Wednesday morning, serving as yet another precursor on the long road to the Oscars.
In the film categories, Birdman was the big winner, scoring four nominations, including for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, as well as the collective ensemble cast. Boyhood followed right in its footsteps with three nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and another ensemble nomination.
The big surprises of the morning’s nominations started with Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, a bubble contender in a crowded Best Actor race, Jennifer Aniston for Cake, a bubble contender in a disappointingly less crowded Best Actress race, Robert Duvall in the poorly reviewed The Judge and Naomi Watts for St. Vincent (Watts was in Birdman as well, but that must’ve slipped SAG’s minds).

Nominees for the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced this morning in Los Angeles by Ansel Elgort and Eva Longoria. There are a number of surprises (Jennifer Aniston scored a nod!) and some snubs (no love for Selma?), but for better or worse, award season has officially kicked off. Birdman is a favorite, earning a nomination for outstanding performance by a cast as well as individual nods for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, and Emma Stone. The Theory of Everything and Boyhood also have a lot to celebrate. On the TV side, the crowd in Los Angeles cheered when Viola Davis's name was read for How to Get Away With Murder. Modern Family remains a big nominee, and Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are both nominated for True Detective. Take a look at the full list below, and look forward to the show, airing Jan. 25! Outstanding Performance By A Cast »

As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a jack(ass) of all trades. I follow the film industry for Lr, and critique films. But I'm also an actor, I front a rock band, I'm a DJ, film editor, and director as well. Basically, when it comes to entertainment, there's nothing I don't do. For some time now, I've been mulling over bringing some of my other interests to Lr, and I'll be starting with the SAG Awards. How? Well, I've been a member of SAG for 6 years now and I also am part of the voting process. That means every year I am sent screeners of all the films being considered for awards.
Here's where a new running feature comes into play:
As I start receiving these screeners, I will write special reviews for each one and publish them here. Then, as we near the voting deadline, »

Once again, Screen Actors Guild voters have proved their loyalty to actors they’ve nominated time and again. Witness repeat nominations for SAG favorites including Steve Buscemi and “Boardwalk Empire,” Claire Danes and “Homeland,” “Nurse Jackie’s” Edie Falco and “Modern Family,” which garnered an ensemble nom and bids for Ty Burrell, Eric Stonestreet and Julie Bowen.
At least SAG voters acknowledged Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” (pictured), after ignoring it last time around. SAG also heaped love on Netflix’s other big show, “House of Cards,” giving it first-time noms in the drama field and in the best actress category for Robin Wright, as well as a nom for star Kevin Spacey for the second year running. Indeed, Netflix is already the big winner today.

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's "Birdman (Or the Unexpected Virture of Ignorance" topped the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations with 4 nods including Outstanding Actor for Michael Keaton, Supporting Actor for Edward Norton, Supporting Actress for Emma Stone, and Outstanding Performance By A Cast.
Winners will be announced on January 25, 2015.
Here's the full list of SAG Awards nominations including TV categories:
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role
Benedict Cumberbatch / Alan Turing . .The Imitation Game. (The Weinstein Company)
Jake Gyllenhaal / Louis Bloom . .Nightcrawler. (Open Road Films)
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role
"Modern Family" and "House of Cards" were the only shows to receive multiple individual nominations plus ensemble recognition as the Screen Actors Guild announced its 2015 award nominations on the TV side on Wednesday (December 10) morning. With a few exceptions -- "Orphan Black" star Tatiana Maslany joining the field or Uzo Aduba earning a well-earned "Orange Is The New Black" nomination -- it was a predictable slate of nominations headed by the same returning favorites, though several fresh shows popped up in key categories. "Modern Family" leads the Ensemble in a Comedy field, going against returning nominees "The Big Bang Theory," "Veep" and familiar newcomers "Orange Is the New Black," snubbed last year on the drama side, and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." Three "Modern Family" leads head up the individual comedy fields. Last year's winner Ty Burrell will be going against co-star Eric Stonestreet for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series. »

The nominations for the 21 annual Screen Actors Guild Awards have just been announced, with Birdman leading the way, earning all four of its possible nominations out of the five film categories. Boyhood, The Imitation Game, and The Theory of Everything followed right behind with three.
As usual, there were plenty of surprises to be had. In the supporting categories, it was a slight shock seeing Meryl Streep make the cut for Into the Woods after not having gotten very much buzz for the role thus far, but then again, awards groups have always loved Streep, so it wasn’t something that was entirely unexpected. The nominee that was completely unexpected, however, was Naomi Watts for St. Vincent, taking a spot that was thought to belong to Jessica Chastain for A Most Violent Year or perhaps Laura Dern for Wild.
Looking at the nominations in the lead categories, we find a few more somewhat unanticipated results, »
