The First Couple's Celeb Pals: When the Obamas Leave the White House, Does the Friendship With Beyoncé and Jay Z Follow?

27 September 2016 3:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

From Beyoncé to Larry David to John Legend, the Obamas have made some very high-profile friends during their nearly eight years living at the White House. But as President Barack Obama's time in office winds down, the question is whether he and Michelle Obama's celebrity pals are likely to remain their BFFs after they leave 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. "Sometimes I think that the way you measure it is, are they inviting some of these celebrities over to the private residence? Are they going out of their way to spend with them? Things that they normally wouldn't have to do," Ted Johnson, a senior editor at Variety who covers politics, says when asked whether the first couple's friendships with »

Jill Soloway on ‘Transparent’ Season 3, Future of Feminism and Confronting Privilege

23 September 2016 10:27 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

[Spoiler alert: This interview contains plot details of “Transparent’s” Season 3, which was just released on Amazon.]

Transparent” creator, writer, and director Jill Soloway just nabbed her second Emmy in a row for directing the Amazon Studios original, which was inspired by her own parent’s experience of gender transition. At the end of her speech, the director cried out “topple the patriarchy!” Soloway is unabashedly saturated with the jargon of academic, progressive feminism, regularly invoking concepts like “the female gaze” and “intersectionality” when discussing her work and its theoretical underpinnings.

As the creator of a program that has become a vital example both of the transgender rights movement’s growing steam and of streaming television’s revolutionary power, Soloway has become something of a lightning rod, too. As beloved as “Transparent” is, the show has also received criticism for the casting of a cisgender man (Jeffrey Tambor) as a transgender woman.

Variety spoke to Soloway about finding the balance between art and politics, and between critique and creation, as »

Veep Wins Best Comedy at the 2016 Emmys & Julia Louis-Dreyfus Steals the Show As Usual

18 September 2016 8:19 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

That's 12 for Veep! HBO's acclaimed political comedy has just won its 12th Emmy, and its second for best comedy.  Larry David presented the award, and while star his former Seinfeld coworker Julia Louis-Dreyfus left the acceptance speech up to executive producer David Mandel, she kept herself exactly where we would prefer she stays: in the spotlight.  Fresh off of her fifth consecutive best actress in a comedy win, and after tripping up the stairs, Jennifer Lawrence-style, on her way up to the stage, she pulled out her bright red cell phone and recorded the audience throughout Mandel's speech, from right behind his shoulder.  Despite Jld's shining existence, »

17 September 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Friday night agency party crawl has become a staple of Emmy weekend.

The fortunate few who were invited to all of them had the high-class problem of mapping a route that wound through the home of UTA managing partner Jay Sures in Brentwood, the Little Holmby digs of Gersh’s Leslie Siebert, Bouchon (CAA) in Beverly Hills and Catch La (Wme) in West Hollywood.

Among the Emmy weekend warriors on the circuit were Fox Television Group’s Dana Walden and NBCUniversal Cable’s Bonnie Hammer. Both of them also managed to make time to stop in at the Variety/Women in Film bash at Gracias Madre, just down the street from Wme’s gathering.

Red Dwarf: Doug Naylor on a final end to the show

13 September 2016 12:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Sep 13, 2016

At the Bafta launch for Red Dwarf XI, writer Doug Naylor vowed not to write a final episode for the show…

Red Dwarf XI is almost upon us. Twentica, the first episode of the new series will be available to watch online at UKTV from Thursday the 15th of September, and airs on Dave at 9pm on Thursday the 22nd of September.

Twentica is an ambitious, great-looking and very funny series opener, followed up by Samsara, a second entertaining episode that feels like quintessential bickering-in-space Red Dwarf.

During the swanky Bafta series launch, co-creator and writer/director Doug Naylor was asked by a member of the audience about how he envisaged the final ever episode of Red Dwarf might look. Here’s what he said:

“I don’t want to write a final episode.

Seinfeld did a final episode and Larry David said it was a mistake, »

Legends of the Fall: 12 TV Actors We’re Happy to See Back on the Small Screen

7 September 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Pamela Adlon, “Better Things

Compared to Adlon’s “Louie” character, the actress’ new role as single mom Sam is just as blunt and borderline provocative but far less intimidating. In fact, she’s kind of adorable in a painfully put-upon but unapologetic way. The semi-autobiographical story has us cringing alongside every embarrassing audition, parental freakout and unfair setback, and yet, Sam’s integrity and backhanded optimism is apparent in that she doesn’t give up, but instead copes (with vodka, but copes nonetheless). Sam is the promise of “Louie’s” Pamela fully realized.

Beyond Fright Review: Klown Forever

2 September 2016 11:18 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Very few films caught me off guard as much as 2010’s Danish comedy, Klown. The brainchild of stars/co-writers Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam as well as director Mikkel Nørgaard, the feature film took what was so hilarious and fun about the Television show it was based on and continually surprised its viewers with an irreverent sense of humor and a gross out comedy that also happened to showcase a large dose of heart to go with it. Revolving around the exploits of two friends, the sex-obsessed Casper and the bashful and never do well Frank, Klown was an addictive piece of foreign comedy, on par with something like if Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm was mixed with a completely uncensored and raunchy blast. Now, a good five and a half years later, Frank and Casper are back for even more with Klown Forever, a film which is equally »
