Emmys 2017: Breaking Down 13 Major Snubs

13 July 2017 10:38 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

With last year's big winner Game of Thrones taking an Emmys' year off and Peak TV continued to Peak, there were more rookies than ever fighting for attention in the awards show's nominations this year – The Crown, Stranger Things, Atlanta, The Handmaid’s Tale. This year, they had no choice but to break some of their bad habits regarding rewarding the same ol' same ol' – and they did some of that. Which doesn't mean there aren't some headslapping snubs in this year's Emmys picks. No Michael McKean for Better Call Saul? »

Emmys Dream Ballot: The Wild Card Nominees Who Might Actually Make the Cut

12 July 2017 9:13 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

You can’t always get what you want. That’s how the song goes, but it hasn’t stopped us from hoping – not when it comes to the second “X-Files” revival and not when it comes to the 2017 Emmy Awards.

Nominations will be announced Thursday morning from the Television Academy’s Saban Media Center in North Hollywood. Anna Chlumsky and Shemar Moore will read the chosen nominees, but until that moment arrives — when dreams are dashed and the cold light of day sets in — the dark horse contenders can still believe.

Read More2017 Emmy Predictions

And we can still believe in them. This year’s Emmy race has been incredibly competitive. With Netflix and Amazon measuring appendages and a packed Fyc calendar from April 1 through early June, there are clearly more deserving vote getters than there will be nominees.

So let’s talk about the long shots one more time »

Emmy Contenders 2017: Supporting Actor in a Drama

6 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s a testament to “Better Call Saul” that the category might be dominated by its supporting players. While Jonathan Banks has scored nominations two years in a row, Giancarlo Esposito is added to the mix this year for reprising the character of Gus Fring, last seen on “Breaking Bad.” That performance earned him an Emmy nod and there’s no reason to think bringing the character to the spin-off won’t bode well. Michael McKean has shockingly never been nominated for an Emmy, and this year he delivered a phenomenal performance in the episode “Off Brand” when his character took the witness stand. “Westworld” also has a powerhouse trio in Ed Harris, James Marsden and Jeffrey Wright, all of whom could find themselves in the line-up. Also boasting dual possibilities is “The Crown,” which saw five-time Emmy winner John Lithgow channel Winston Churchill and Jared Harris as King George VI. They »

16 March 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Martin Riggs (actor Clayne Crawford) and Roger Murtaugh (Damon Wayans) might be two detectives with the Lapd, but they wouldn't be the Riggs and Murtaugh that we've fallen in love with on Fox's Lethal Weapon if they didn't have a few moments that made us give them the side eye but also helped us realize just how brilliant they really are.

Riggs and Murtaugh's Top 5 Bonding Moments from 'Lethal Weapon'

8 March 2017 1:00 AM, PST | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh without a doubt are quite the odd couple on Fox's hit Lethal Weapon reboot. But the two, played by Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans, Sr., respectively, still manage to have one of the most addicting bromances on prime-time television.

They come from two different walks of life and have two very separate lifestyles, as each episode shows they are in different phases of their lives. But they have had several moments that prove their bond is a strong one despite their differences.

Lethal Weapon review – big guns, fast cars and a dodgy death

3 March 2017 10:20 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The cop classic speeds on to the small screen, and with its spectacular car chases and buddy banter it feels like The Grand Tour – but with better dialogue

A cinematic ghost from the 1980s and 90s reappears in your living room on Friday nights. In Lethal Weapon (ITV, after airing on Fox in the Us), Damon Wayans plays the Danny Glover character, Roger Murtaugh, a senior Lapd cop returning to work after a heart attack. Clayne Crawford is Martin Riggs – originally played by Mel Gibson – the younger, wilder former Navy Seal with a penchant for big guns and a death wish.

The plot of this pilot even vaguely follows the original film. After being introduced to devoted family man Murtaugh and to Riggs, who we learn has lost his wife and unborn child in a tragic car crash, we see the two paired up and set to work on a »

‘Taken’ Review: Everything Wrong With the NBC Adaptation of Liam Neeson’s Movies — No One Even Gets Taken!

27 February 2017 7:59 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Disastrous film adaptations on broadcast television are nothing new. They’ve been popping up for decades, and — despite the many flops — network executives continue to apply cross promotional deal mechanics to generate revenue streams for synergy jargon. They love extending a brand’s lifespan via TV, and hey, sometimes it works. “Lethal Weapon,” one of the better examples of late, was just renewed for a second season and remains a treat for franchise fans and “Rectify” die-hards. (Clayne Crawford, keep up the good work.) It works, among other reasons, because the movies were made to fit the procedural formula. The show compliments what inspired it in spirit, character, and execution.

Taken,” however, represents what happens when everything goes wrong. What made the movie special is ignored again and again in the new series. Though the films arguably proved why the original premise wasn’t sustainable — after two movies, filmmakers stopped »
