Poll: Who Should Host the Oscars?

13 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s that time of year again: awards season is in full swing, and with that, the 2017 Oscars should soon start to take shape.

Though the Academy has yet to even announce producers yet, falling behind the usual timeline, speculation has already begun about who will host the year’s biggest night in movies. After doing, by most reviews, a bang-up job hosting the recent Emmys, Jimmy Kimmel seems like an obvious choice.

But there are other options, too. Might the Academy bring back tried-and-true bets like Ellen DeGeneres or Chris Rock? Or could former Golden Globes mainstays Amy Poehler and Tina Fey take to the Oscars stage? There’s also a possibly that the Academy could bring in new hosts, like Kevin Hart or Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.

Weigh in below. We couldn’t fit all the potential candidates in our poll, so if there’s someone you »

When Saturday Night Live kicks off its 42nd season this Saturday night, fans will be tuning in to see how the episode's host – Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie – fares in her first not-ready-for-primetime appearance. They'll be curious to see what the three new cast members (Mikey Day, Alex Moffat and Melissa Villaseñor) will bring to the table, and what sort of gap the dismissal of Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah may have left on the show as a whole.

But mostly, viewers will be watching to see how the show »

Freeform Developing Late-Night Show With Comedian Iliza Shlesinger (Exclusive)

23 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Freeform is stepping into the late-night arena.

The cabler is developing a late-night series with comedian Iliza Shlesinger, Variety has learned exclusively.

The late-night show will feature Shlesinger’s unique voice that reflects the audience and “what’s happening in the moment” with a fresh comedic spin. Shlesinger says the series will set itself apart from other shows in the genre because her voice has a feminine side to it, but she’s not afraid to be unabashed in her opinions.

“It has been my goal since I was a kid,” Shlesinger tells Variety of hosting a late-night show. “I used to take a recorder around and interview my parents and do impressions of my classmates as guests on my show. I started working on this goal in Hollywood years ago. I think comedy and the perception of women in comedy has evolved to a place where this show can finally be a reality on my own »

Jimmy Kimmel Producers Reveal Emmy Show Secrets — And What You Didn’t Get to See

19 September 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Just hours after they wrapped work on this year’s Emmys, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” head writers Molly McNearney and Danny Ricker were already back at the office, crafting tonight’s regular show.

“We’re very tired,” McNearney told IndieWire on Monday morning. “We had material due at 8:30 this morning, for tonight’s monologue. We were still at the party at 3:30 in the morning. I kept looking at my phone going, “All right, material is due in five hours… Ok, now it’s due in four hours…”

Added Ricker: “I considered wearing sweat pants to work today.”

Though groggy, McNearney and Ricker were enthusiastic about the reaction to Sunday night’s awards telecast, and the generally high marks that Jimmy Kimmel received as host.

“I’m hyper critical of these things,” said McNearney, who is also married to Kimmel. “After Jimmy does anything, it sounds terrible, but I will evaluate and re-evaluate everything — ‘Oh, »

‘Game of Thrones’: Why Its Emmy Record Will Probably Stand Uncontested for Years

19 September 2016 12:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Frasier who?

The“Game of Thrones” dominance at this year’s Emmys gave it 38 overall wins, which just gave the drama enough juice to surpass “Frasier’s” 37 and make it the most decorated scripted series of all time. The show had better get used to this moniker, because it’s not going to change for a while.

Game of Thrones” has two more seasons left, which will very likely rack up more wins and allow the show to pull ahead even further. Of the Top 10 most Emmy-winning shows of all time, six — “ER,” “The West Wing,” “Hill Street Blues,” “Cheers,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “Frasier” — have long since been canceled and therefore no longer pose a threat to the title.

Nobody Was More Uncomfortable With That Bill Cosby Joke at the Emmys Than Tina Fey

19 September 2016 12:12 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Image Source: Getty / Jon Kopaloff Jimmy Kimmel was full of witty one-liners when he hosted the Emmys on Sunday night, but there was one joke in particular that left everyone holding their breath. After the announcer introduced Bill Cosby, who has been accused of sexual assault by more than 50 women, to the stage, the camera cut to a very confused and scared-looking audience. "Don't worry, he's not really here," Jimmy said when he walked out a few seconds later. "I just wanted to see what you guys would do." While some celebrities hid their confusion with a half smile, Tina Fey's reaction stole the show. She immediately turned to pal Amy Poehler and appeared to say, "This has got to be a joke." Just add it to the long list of many cringeworthy moments from the night. »

Kate McKinnon’s Emmy win marks a surprising first for ‘Saturday Night Live’

19 September 2016 10:11 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Saturday Night Live has been on the air for over four decades, with its 42nd season debuting next month, but last night marked the first time ever an SNL cast member performance has earned an Emmy. The late night comedy stable has picked up a handful of Emmy statuettes for its guest hosts but never before an Outstanding Supporting Actor or Actress in a Comedy Series award for one of its regular cast members. The first acting win for SNL was Justin Timberlake’s in 2009 for his third time as host. Four other SNL cast members had been honored with Emmy nominations for their work on the sketch comedy show though without taking home a statuette: Eddie Murphy, Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, and Kristen Wiig. McKinnon’s wonderfully wacky SNL performances had also been nominated twice before. SNL also put another first in the Emmy history books this year: The »

It was a night of firsts and sweeps.

Find out who won their first Emmys and what shows swept the awards, because we have every single winner from all three Emmy ceremonies below!

Jimmy Kimmel did an awesome job hosting, and even managed to point out all of the annoying gluten free stars in the audience after passing out Pb&J sandwiches his mom made. And he hoped nobody was allergic to nuts! 

Congrats to all the winners. How many surprised you by the way things turned out? FX proved that there may be too much television to choose from, but what they're putting out there is of the great variety.

HBO offered up repeats with Game of Thrones and Veep, Keeping The Americans from a Best Drama win, but Rami Malek got the best actor win, even if we were also cheering heartily for Matthew Rhys. And our girl »

Join Lindsey Lohan and Those Mean Girls This Weekend Midnights at The Tivoli

18 September 2016 7:18 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“I’m sorry that people are so jealous of me… but I can’t help it that I’m so popular.”

Mean Girls plays this weekend (September 23rd and 24th) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series. 

Mean Girls may only be 12 years old, but this cult film for the current generation shows how some things never change. High school comes with cliques, bullies, and memories you want to forget. Every person that has gone through the high school experience can relate. Mean Girls does a good job of over exaggerating the typical dreadful four years. Pre-punchline Lindsey Lohan stars as Cady Heron, an unsocialized teenage girl who grew up in Africa and suddenly finds herself in the midst of high school drama. Cady describes the first few days as “a surreal blur”. She starts out being friends with two losers who let »

Emmy host Jimmy Kimmel stunned the audience at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday night when an award presenter was announced that no one was expecting to see: "Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Bill Cosby." The crowd emitted a short gasp, and surprised expressions washed over the faces of stars Tina Fey and Ellie Kemper, among others. The moment passed quickly, however. "He's not really here," Kimmel said, wryly apologetic. "I just wanted to see what you guys would do." { "nid": 926352, "type": "list_index", "title": "Emmy Awards: The Complete Winners List", "path": "http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/lists/emmy-winners-2016-
