Andre Braugher is entering the "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" episode titled "The Mole." Ty Burrell from "Modern Family" chooses the episode called "Crying Out Loud." -Break- Click here to see the updated list of all 2015 Emmy episode submissions This year marks the ninth career Emmy nomination for Braugher and the second straight in this category. He is a past two-time winner for "Homicide: Life on the Street" (1998) and "Thief" (2006). He plays Captain Ray Holt on the Fox comedy, and in this fifth episode of the second season, "Captain Holt and Jake try to find a mole in their precinct before Deputy Chief Madeline Wuntch hears about it. Elsewhere, Terry and Rosa visit a silent disco to look for leads for their drug task force." Burrell has won this »
'Ant-Man': Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. 'Ant-Man' box office below expectations: Lowest Marvel Cinematic Universe domestic debut Starring Paul Rudd as a bug-like (sizewise) action hero, Ant-Man was expected to open with $60-$65 million from 3,856 U.S. and Canada locations this past weekend, July 17-19, '15. That didn't happen. A mere three days ago, Variety enthused that Ant-Man was "marching to a solid $65 million weekend at the U.S. box office." But instead of a $65 million domestic debut like those of Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, Ant-Man bowed with a considerably more modest $57.22 million (down from the studio's $58.04 million Sunday estimate), including Thursday evening screenings. This latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry averaged a highly disappointing – especially for an McU entry with loads of steeper-priced 3D and IMAX / Pfl screenings – $14,841 per location. But really, why "highly disappointing"? Trailing 'The Incredible Hulk' Even taking into account the fact »

This morning, Orange is the New Black‘s Uzo Aduba and So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley came together to announce the nominations for the 67th annual Emmy Awards. And now that the dust has settled on the lucky shows, actors, directors and writers, it’s clear that Emmy voters are starting to adjust to the times but still have a while to go before they’re as on the money as the competing Critics’ Choice Awards.
Game of Thrones had the strongest showing of any series, pulling in a stunning 24 nominations including for Outstanding Drama Series, even after a controversial season that caused some viewers and critics to revolt against what was once a near-universally acclaimed show.

Give the Emmys credit for at least trying to keep up with the current explosion of quality television.
This year, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences expanded the Best Comedy and Drama Series categories to seven slots each, and they made other minor changes (online voting!) meant to bring the awards into the 21st century. Still, there's more good TV now than even the Academy can keep up with, so the outrage and shock over the snubs and surprises in this morning's Emmy nominations is inevitable. Here are some of the most astonishing omissions and inclusions.
Best Drama Series
The biggest shocker here is the snub of "Empire," the season's breakout hit. Was it too soapy or guilty-pleasure-ish for the Academy to take seriously? Fellow newbie/Twitter sensation "How to Get Away With Murder" was also snubbed. Golden Globe fave "The Affair" got no love, here or in other major categories. »

This year's Emmy Award nominations have been announced and "Game of Thrones" topped the list with a whopping 24 nominations, followed by "American Horror Story: Freak Show" with 19 noms and "Olive Kitteridge" with 13.
HBO was by far the network to be with 124 nominations in total across the prime time and technical categories. They were followed by ABC (42), CBS & NBC (41), FX (38), Fox (35), Netflix (34), PBS (29), Comedy Central (25) and AMC (24).
With a new online voting system, the list of nominees are a bit fresher than usual with a lot of first-time nominees in acting categories, and some notable absentees like network comedy stalwarts "The Big Bang Theory" and Melissa McCarthy in favour of fresher faces such as "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt". There was some excellent and overdue casting nominations such as Tatiana Maslany for "Orphan Black" and Taraji P. Henson for "Empire," along with the new 'Limited Series' element and more suitable classifications for some »

And they're off! Nominations for the 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards were just announced on Thursday, July 16. "Orange Is the New Black" star Uzo Aduba and "So You Think You Can Dance" host Cat Deeley revealed the major nominees, but there are actually a lot more (like for costume design, sound editing, cinematography, etc.) and you can head to the Nominees and Winners page of Emmys.com to check out the very long roundup of nominees.
Here are the announced Emmy nominations:
"Better Call Saul"
Outstanding Actor In A Drama
Bob Odenkirk, "Better Call Saul"
Outstanding Actress In A Drama

After three straight years with four of the six supporting comedy actor slots belonging to "Modern Family," last year finally saw the majority figure cut in half with only Ty Burrell and Jesse Tyler Ferguson making the cut (and Burrell winning). Ed O'Neill and/or Eric Stonestreet could make a comeback, or maybe the "Family" love will reduce further this time around? That all depends on whether Tony Hale ("Veep"), Fred Armisen ("Portlandia"), Adam Driver ("Girls") and/or Andre Braugher ("Brooklyn Nine-Nine") can return from last year, and if Martin Sheen ("Grace and Frankie"), Sam Waterston ("Grace and Frankie"), Hugh Laurie ("Veep"), Tituss Burgess ("Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Laurence Fishburne ("Blackish") and/or Josh Gad ("The Comedians") can squeak in for their shows' first seasons (or Hugh Laurie for his first season of "Veep").

I have a bad feeling that Jane the Virgin is about to get royally screwed.
Emmy Nominations will be announced this Thursday at 11:30 am/Est, and my gut is telling me that the sublime freshman comedy — and its sterling ensemble led by Gina Rodriguez —will fall victim to the Academy’s long-held bias against The CW.
I really hope I am wrong.
According to the combined predictions of our Experts, Editors, Top 24 Users (those two dozen folks who racked up the best scores among the thousands predicting last year's Emmy nominations) and All Users, "Modern Family," "The Good Wife" and "American Horror Story: Freak Show" will be top nominees in their fields. Click here for our complete predictions by category. -Break- Editors Emmy slugfest: Which bubble shows will get Best Comedy nods? (Video) After winning Best Comedy Series for a record-tying five years in a row, "Modern Family" is poised to earn another six nominations across the seven comedy categories we're predicting, including Best Comedy; repeat supporting bids for Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Julie Bowen; and guest-acting bids for Nathan Lane and Tyne Daly. Of those categories, it's currently forecast to win twice: for Best Comedy (which would set a new record wit...' »
Only three of last year’s Emmy nominees are missing from the comedy ballots this year (and it’s because all three — “Orange Is the New Black’s” Taylor Schilling and Kate Mulgrew and “Derek’s” Ricky Gervais — are now competing in different categories). Combine that high volume of returning favorites with an influx of buzzy new series, and odds are high there will be a lot of disappointed contenders come Thursday morning. Here’s who we’re predicting will make the very competitive cut. Click to see our picks for those in the running for the drama series categories.
With six consecutive nominations and a record-tying four wins under his belt, “The Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parsons is this category’s undisputed favorite. But he’ll face heavy competition this year from Jeffrey Tambor, whose transcendent performance in Amazon »

"Inside Out" is an emotional, sometimes devastating look at a young girl's emotions as illustrated through five dynamic creatures: Joy (voiced by Amy Poehler), Anger (Lewis Black), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Fear (Bill Hader). Fear is the rubberiest member of the quintet, a nervous and jittery fellow whose eyes always seem ready to burst of his head. Naturally Bill Hader is a fine fit for the part. His time on "SNL" proved his greatest strength is playing characters who are soulfully weird. We caught up with Hader to discuss how he got the part of Fear in "Inside Out," how "The Skeleton Twins" changed his life, and why Martin Scorsese is so meaningful to him. Can you see yourself in the physical movements of your character? Is that disturbing? Not disturbing, but it's there. I watched it with my wife at this cast-and-crew screening, and my wife said, »

Even with as much planning as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, some scenes end up on the editing room floor…
This film has spoilers for every film in the Marvel cinematic universe.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe… if you’ve just clicked into this article, it’s likely that you need little reminding of how much it changed the landscape of Hollywood. But that won’t stop us recapping for continuity’s sake. Heck, it’s what Kevin Feige would want.
It began in 2008, then, with the landmark casting of Robert Downey Jnr as Tony Stark. It’s sometimes hard to remember how much a risk that was at the time, but heck did it pay off. The movie, directed by Jon Favreau, was strong, and a huge hit. And the notion of a post-credits sting was introduced. And it was a big one, too – Samuel L Jackson namedropping the Avengers Initiative. »
