Emmy Predictions 2017: Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie

12 June 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Year’s Winner: Sterling K. Brown, “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: While HBO and FX have the most nominations in this category over the past six years, they each have won twice and both have lost twice (to PBS in 2014 and History in 2012).

Fun Fact: Beau Bridges is the only actor to win this category twice. He won for “The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom” (1993) and “The Second Civil War” (1997).

The consistently crowded supporting actor category is again stacked with contenders this year. HBO and FX are at it again with enough offerings to fill the field by themselves (which FX almost did in 2016, with five of the six slots). First up, FX has “Fargo” and “Feud” as top competitors. David Thewlis and Michael Stuhlbarg are damn impressive in Season 3, while Alfred Molina and Stanley Tucci are »

‘House of Cards’ Season 5: New Administration, Same Game

30 May 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: This column contains plot details for the entirety of Netflix’s “House of Cards” Season 5, which debuted early morning on Tuesday, May 30. Do not read until you’ve watched the whole season.

At this year’s unconventional White House Correspondents’ Dinner, host Hasan Minhaj succinctly observed how a different political climate makes for very different viewing of Netflix’s flagship drama series “House of Cards,” whose fifth season debuts today. He quipped: ”I’ve been watching ‘House of Cards’ just to relax. Oh, a vice president pushes a journalist in front of a train? How quaint.”

The fifth season of “House of Cards” premieres under such shockingly different circumstances from what it faced just a year ago that it’s hard to not read into its antiseptic, amoral portrait of a coolly power-hungry Washington, D.C. The show was created under the auspices of President Obama and functioned, like »

George C. Wolfe Hails ‘Brilliant’ Oprah Winfrey at ‘Henrietta Lacks’ Premiere

19 April 2017 6:47 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At Tuesday premiere of HBO’s “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” Oprah Winfrey’s cast mates could not say enough about the work experience on the movie and the multi-faceted talents of its star and producer.

“Henrietta Lacks” comes as Winfrey has already stepped up her acting work — in addition to running a cable channel, a magazine and sundry other ventures — with a role in Own’s “Greenleaf” and movies including the upcoming “A Wrinkle in Time” directed by Ava DuVernay.

“Henrietta Lacks” director George C. Wolfe said Winfrey needs to make time for more thespian work. “She needs to do more and more and more and more. She’s brilliant,” Wolfe told Variety before the premiere screening at Manhattan’s Sva Theater.

“Henrietta Lacks” tells the story of an African-American woman who died young and had her cells harvested for years for research that led to astounding breakthroughs in medical science — unbeknownst to her family »

‘The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks’ Review: Oprah Winfrey Dominates an HBO Film Told From the Wrong Perspective

19 April 2017 3:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Racism. Classism. The goddamn patriarchy. All of these issues are of great relevancy to our current culture, and all of these issues are pertinent themes of “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” the new HBO film starring Oprah Winfrey and Rose Byrne. Chronicling the legal but unethical theft of a black woman’s cells by white doctors, the film proves to be more concerned with finding a happy ending than discussing how the systemic nature of America’s racial rift has adversely affected a family, if not generations of families. That might be a viable option if the “Henrietta Lacks” emotional core wasn’t built on rage, but — as is admirably encapsulated in Winfrey’s performance — there’s too much suffering here to settle for complacency.

Serving as yet another example of a storyteller stealing focus from the story she’s trying to tell, “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks »
