18 August 2014 3:49 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The winners of the 7th Annual EWwy Awards for the Emmy-snubbed were announced live Aug. 18 on EW Radio, and for the second year, the best actress in a drama category boasted the largest margin of victory. In 2013, Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany won with 43 percent of the vote; this year, 61 percent of readers cast their ballots for her. “I think people have been bribed, or it’s been rigged somehow. That’s ridiculous. That’s not right,” a grateful Maslany joked when she phoned in to accept the honor and was reminded that fellow nominees included Sons of Anarchy’s »

Varèse Sarabande Records will release the Bates Motel - Original Television Series Soundtrack, featuring the original score composed by Chris Bacon, digitally and on CD August 25th. We have all the details you need right here.

Chris Bacon burst onto the film-scoring scene with his full throttled score for Duncan Jones’ hit thriller Source Code. He earned his first Emmy® Award Nomination for the underscore for the second half of NBC’s "Smash" Season 1.

His recent work includes the score to John Putch’s Atlas Shrugged II: The Strike, Season 2 of "Smash," and Stephen Gyllenhaal’s Sworn to Silence.

“In my early conversations with the show's producers about the score's direction, they made it clear that we are not trying to re-create or pay homage to the original Psycho, which was good news because that's one of the most iconic and recognizable scores of all time and my attempts to »

First Image From The Conjuring Spinoff Annabelle

8 August 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a dearth of enjoyable frightfests this summer, October should reward horror aficionados for their patience with a slew of promising titles. V/H/S Viral, Ouija, Housebound, Stonehearst Asylum, The ABCs of Death 2 and Horns will all be competing for moviegoers’ screams, but one title in particular seems to have the best shot at breaking out at the box office - Annabelle, a spinoff from horror hit The Conjuring that finds new characters menaced by the titular doll.

The first image from the film (above) doesn’t shed much light on what we can expect from Annabelle, which may or may not affect the events of The Conjuring 2, scheduled for October 23rd next year. Check out the synopsis below for some insight into the horrific happenings filmgoers can look forward to being petrified by.

She terrified you in “The Conjuring,” but this is where it all began for Annabelle. »

Bates Motel Cast and Writers Talk Season 3

4 August 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Back in April, Bates Motel got the green light for a third season that is scheduled to air next year. At Comic Con, Daily Dead caught up with the show’s writers, Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin, to see what they had in store for Season 3. Stars Vera Farmiga, Nestor Carbonell and Olivia Cooke also gave us their thoughts on their characters in Season 2 and where they’re headed.

Are there times when you have a lot of sympathy for Norma and, at the same time, hate her character? How do you feel playing such a dynamic character?

Vera Farmiga: I do, but that’s not important how I feel. I have been appointed as her court-appointed lawyer in her defence, so it doesn’t really matter how I feel. I know she does things wrong; they’re not the choices I would necessarily make as a mother. But »

Emmys 2014: Who Should Win Lead Actress in a Drama? Take Our Poll!

29 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

That old saying about “three’s a crowd” doesn’t apply to Emmy statuettes on your mantle. Which is exactly why Homeland‘s Claire Danes will be hoping to score her third consecutive win as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the 2014 ceremony.

Coming off the Showtime thriller’s uneven third season, though, Danes is hardly a lock. Among her competitors are 2011 champ Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife), who got left off the ballot in 2013 but roared back into contention this year with the CBS drama’s jaw-dropping, »

Carlton Cuse Will Create Colony For USA Network

29 July 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Apparently, the thing TV schedules most desperately need right now is another post-apocalyptic alien drama. So says USA Network, who have issued powerhouse producer Carlton Cuse with his second pilot order of the season, for Colony.

Former Lost writer, showrunner and executive producer Cuse counts Bates Motel, The Strain and The Returned among his post-island projects, as well as the recent pilot ordered by Amazon – Point Of Honor. Colony is his latest creation, which he will executive produce alongside Ryan Condal (Hercules). Described as a ‘naturalistic drama’, the show will follow a family in near-future Los Angeles, trying to stay together and survive under the occupation of external forces. It seems that some members of their community choose to collaborate with the occupiers, while others rebel and risk punishment.

Casting choices have yet to be announced for Colony, but the projects of Carlton Cuse have a tendency to attract impressive names. »

Bates Motel Cast, Ep Talk Norma's 'Innocence' and Romero's Backstory, Defend 'Desperate' Finale Kiss

28 July 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Norma and Norman Bates weren’t the only folks whose world views began to diverge during Season 2 of A&E’s Bates Motel.

As executive producer Kerry Ehrin told Michael Ausiello in TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con video suite, series stars Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore found themselves taking very different approaches to their scenes — i.e. their face-off in the parking lot outside the community theater — which wound up adding rich layers to their characters and performances.

Comic-Con: We May Still Have To Watch Drug Wars On ‘Bates Motes’

27 July 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Bates Motel still remains a surprising success. Not only in terms of ratings, but its quality. A prequel to Psycho showing a young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) sounded like a joke a few years ago, the kind of idea doomed to fail. But the first season turned out to be a highly enjoyable show. Vera Farmiga does consistently great work, Highmore is good fun, and, every once in a while, there’s some genuinely good drama, thanks to Norma Bates, who’s the heart and soul of the show. Unfortunately, there was s a slight drop in quality with season two. Bates Motel is at its best when it’s just Norma and Norman getting through problems or the never-ending trope of the nerdy kid going after “the cool girl” when the right one is there all along: Emma (Olivia Cooke). Once Norman starts watching High School movies, hopefully he’ll smarten up. Where »

Fans of A&E’s Bates Motel have seen the dark sides of Norman Bates and his mother, Norma Louise, but the new comedically staged auditions of actors Freddie Highmore, Vera Farmiga, and others reveal the funnier side of the people who play the motel operators and the surrounding townsfolk of White Pine Bay.

Bates Motel Comic-Con Panel Recap: A Look Back at the Insane Second Season, and a Promise for More Creepiness to Come

26 July 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Bates Motel has never been a show that was afraid to “go there.”  With a second season that saw many supporting characters sent away or killed, a tense showdown with drug trading, and that mother and son kiss that went on just a bit too long, showrunners and creators Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin have a lot to live up to with their upcoming third season of the A&E show. Along with cast members Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Olivia Cooke, and Nestor Carbonell on hand, the panel reflected back on the insanity and never before seen hilarity of the second season, while teasing fans slightly with a special guest appearance, if the show will ever seen any character spillover from the original Psycho, and what the cast themselves would like to see for their characters in the upcoming season.  Hit the jump for the Bates Motel Comic-Con panel recap highlights. »

Near the end of season two, A&E’s Bates Motel gave a tantalizing glimpse of teen Norman Bates experiencing the personality split integral to his later-life behavior. Since the character has already racked up a body count, the next question might be when he’ll begin wearing his mother’s clothes. In a discussion after the Bates Motel Comic-Con panel in San Diego Friday afternoon, star Freddie Highmore addressed the inevitable.

Dylan’s dad/uncle (duncle?) is coming back to Bates Motel… and this time, it’s full-time.

At a Comic-Con panel on Friday for A&E’s suspense thriller and Psycho quasi-prequel, it was announced that Kenny Johnson would return to the show in a big way, joining the cast as a series regular in season 3. Best known for his dirty work on The Shield and Sons of Anarchy, Johnson guest-starred in two episodes last season as Caleb, the mysterious estranged brother of Norma (Vera Farmiga)—whom she says raped her and impregnated her with Dylan (Max Thieriot). “When Kenny Johnson »

Finding the perfect actors for your show is a painstaking art: A few right moves, and you can back up an Emmy truck next to that Brinks truck. A couple of wrong moves, and the whole project is a disaster.

Bates Motel executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin certainly had their hands full when they set out to cast their contemporary Pyscho prequel for A&E.

#SDCC14: What We Know So Far About Bates Motel Season 3; Updated with Returning Cast News

25 July 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

We just left the Sdcc press room for "Bates Motel," and while showrunners Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin are saving the big announcements for today's panel, we did glean a few clues of what's ahead in Season 3.

First we spoke with Norma Bates herself, Vera Farmiga. When asked how she reconciles Norma's behavior in the series, Vera said she sees herself as Norma's "court appointed lawyer in her defense" and "approaches her with outright compassion."

She focuses on what she appreciates about the character; Norma's "terribly flawed but trying to be the best mother she can be." She had a very grim upbringing with no role model, and her relationship with Norman is a "lifejacket." Theirs is a noble love, and Norma is a "lioness with a lame cub."

She couldn't tell us much about the upcoming third season as she hasn't seen a script yet (shooting begins in October »
