The Orchard has premiered the official trailer for Hannah Fidell's 6 Years, a relationship drama looking at the first six years in the romantic life of a young woman.

At Washington D.C.’s lone celebrity-driven weekend of the year, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, the term “nerd” as in “that nerd prom” is an executive level “diss”. In San Diego at Comic-Con, it is a badge of honor. The more “Nerd” in your party, the better it probably is, especially if it is a “HQ” or hosted by the king @Nerdist himself.

Why Debra Granik Went From 'Winter's Bone' to the Freedom of Her First Doc 'Stray Dog': "I fear inurement"

2 July 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Filmmaker Debra Granik earned an impressive four Oscar nominations for 2010's "Winter's Bone," including best picture, actress (Jennifer Lawrence), supporting actor (John Hawkes) and adapted screenplay. Clearly all the talent on display in 2004's "Down to the Bone," which boosted the career of Vera Farmiga, was not a flash in the pan. What was the deliberate New York filmmaker, who works closely with producer-writer Anne Rossellini, going to do next? Well, she pursued several promising projects that have yet to come to fruition. Among them were "American High Life," a possible HBO series created by young writer Nicki Paluga, and Granik's film version of Russell Banks' novel "Rule Of The Bone," marking the third part of her unofficial osteo-trilogy, about an abused 14-year-old Jamaican-American who turns to drugs, gets kicked out of his home, and returns to Jamaica to find his father. Banks was optimistic that a cast of unknowns and names would. »

Emmys cliffhanger: Will Elisabeth Moss and Vera Farmiga bounce back after snubs?

26 June 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

When examining our Experts' Emmy predictions for Best Drama Actress, you'll notice something interesting: three pundits include Elisabeth Moss ("Mad Men") in their rankings and one predicts a bid for Vera Farmiga ("Bates Motel"). But wait, don't these Emmyologists -- Robert Bianco (USA Today), Debra Birnbaum (Variety), Matthew Jacobs (HuffPo) and Tom O'Neil (Gold Derby) -- remember that Moss and Farmiga got skunked last year and, as Emmy legend goes, once you're out, you're out? -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders Look at what happened in the past to Mariska Hargitay ("Law & Order: Svu") and Kyra Sedgwick ("The Closer") in this same category. Both of these winners couldn't sneak back onto the nominee lineup after they got the boot. So why is everybody assuming that Moss and Farmiga (who've never won) will be rare exception »

‘Bates Motel’s’ Vera Farmiga on Physically Demanding Combat Scenes and 6 Other Emmy Contender Quickies

19 June 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Vera Farmiga‘s dynamic performance as unstable single mom Norma Bates in A&E original series “Bates Motel” demands attention as an Emmy contender for best actress in a drama — perhaps even more so now than when she was first nominated for the role in 2013. Over three seasons, Farmiga has portrayed Norma’s emotional unraveling as her serial-killer son Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) slowly evolves into the character so familiar to fans of Alfred Hitchcock‘s 1960 horror classic “Psycho.” Norma scrapes and claws — often literally — to save her son from murder charges, drug dealers and his own spiraling mental health, »

11 stars using body doubles for nude scenes: Keira Knightley, Mila Kunis, Owen Wilson

19 June 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Game of Thrones star Lena Headey's 'Walk of Shame' nude body double has been revealed as actress Rebecca Van Cleave.

Headey opted out of going naked for the harrowing six-minute sequence "for several reasons", one of which was so she could fully focus on the emotions in her performance.

The actress also wasn't involved in the casting process for her double, adding: "I was like, 'Listen guys, she happens to have a beautiful body, but I don't do casting'. If somebody is brave enough to do this, I applaud it."

We've found 11 other actors and actresses who've spoken candidly about choosing a body double instead of baring their naked bits on the big screen.

And you may find some film scenes quite surprising (it wasn't really Kevin Costner frolicking naked in a waterfall!).

Bates Motel: two more seasons ordered

16 June 2015 12:27 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We hope you’ve been enjoying your stay at Bates Motel – two more seasons of the Psycho prequel have been ordered…

Good news, Bates Motel fans – the show has just been extended for two more seasons. This move will bring us to five seasons, with a few news sites already jumping to the conclusion that season 5 will be the show’s last.

Indeed, perhaps the intention of this double season order is for the writing team to map out a two-year endgame. That’s not been confirmed by any official sources, though. Many expect that the show will start linking up with the events of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho at some point soon, but only time will tell on that one.

Anyone who follows American network TV news won’t find this information as a huge surprise. Although the ratings for Bates Motel have gradually decreased, the show has fared »
