Emmy Predictions 2017: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

23 March 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Year’s Winner: Dame Maggie Smith, “Downton Abbey

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: After nabbing one nomination in 2013 (Emilia Clarke) and 2014 (Lena Headey), “Game of Thrones” expanded in subsequent years to two nominations in 2015 and three in 2016 (when Maisie Williams snagged her first nod).

Fun Fact: Only two actresses have won this category more than twice: Ellen Corby for “The Waltons” (three times) and Nancy Marchand for “Lou Grant” (four times).

With “Game of Thrones” out of contention and the great Dame Maggie Smith’s “Downton Abbey” over, only two of last year’s nominees are eligible again in 2017: Maura Tierney in “The Affair” and Constance Zimmer in “UnREAL.” Both are coming off their first Emmy nominations, but both of their TV shows lost a bit of buzz in their follow-up seasons. Neither are guarantees (though certainly deserving).

So, who’s going to fill all these slots? There’s no shortage of options. »

Millions Watched Glitchy ‘Game Of Thrones’ Facebook Stream Revealing Season 7 Premiere Date

10 March 2017 9:57 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

In what sounds like either an ingenious slant on the livestreaming medium or one of the most maddening marketing stunts of all time, hit HBO series Game Of Thrones unveiled the premiere date of its highly-anticipated seventh season during a Facebook Live stream yesterday.

During the 69-minute event, the team behind the series melted a giant block of ice with blowtorches -- a nod to author George R.R. Martin’s A Song Of Ice And Fire series of fantasy novels -- under which it was revealed that the show is set to return on July 16. Viewers were asked to comment ‘Fire’ via Facebook in order to speed up the process amid appearances by cast members Lena Headey, Nikolaj-Coster Waldau, and Gwendoline Christie.

'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Premiere Date Revealed, 'The Great War' Is Coming

9 March 2017 12:44 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Fear the winter!

Game of Thrones will return to HBO for its seventh and penultimate season on July 16, 2017, it was announced on Thursday.

The big reveal came on Facebook Live via some sort of metaphorical song of ice and fire. Fans were asked to comment with phrases like "Fire" and "Dracarys!" while watching a giant block of ice being melted by blowtorches as ominous GoT music played in the background. The glitchy, painfully long stream was interrupted by technical difficulties not once, but twice, leaving the entire process to clock in at just over an hour. In the end, fans were rewarded with soundbites from a handful of their favorite characters -- including the late Ned and Catelyn Stark!

"I know what my father was, what he did," Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) is heard saying. "I know the mad king earned his name."

Game of Thrones Season 7 has a premiere date!

The highly anticipated new season of the HBO fantasy epic will debut on July 16, 2017. 

The news was confirmed via a live Facebook video, which found the date submerged in ice. 

Facebook users were given a task by Isaac Hempstead Wright to comment with the word, "Fire" to take the wall of ice down to reveal the premiere date. 

Lena Headey, Gwendoline Christie and Alfie Allen later appeared in the video promoting the benefits of melting the ice.

It was a good way to reveal the news, but it was filled with technical issues. HBO should maybe just stick to the good old press release next time. 

Fans have questioned when the truncated run of episodes would premiere ever since we got word that the series would be delayed. 

This delay was down to weather »

Fighting With My Family Adds Three As Production Gets Underway

15 February 2017 1:37 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As if news of The Rock’s return to the wrestling world wasn’t exciting enough, Dwayne Johnson and his prolific Seven Bucks Productions have gathered together an exciting roster of talent for Fighting With My Family, the true-life drama poised to chronicle the life and career of WWE superstar Paige.

Newswire: Vince Vaughn joins Dwayne Johnson’s dysfunctional wrestling family

14 February 2017 12:57 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

According to Deadline, Vince Vaughn has joined the cast of Fighting With My Family, a wrestling-based dramedy film produced by and starring Dwayne Johnson. The movie is based on the life of WWE star Paige, and will feature Lena Headey and Nick Frost in addition to Vaughn and Johnson. Plus, the film is being written and directed by Stephen Merchant from The Office, so there are a lot of interesting and mildly incongruous pieces at work here.

The Deadline story doesn’t offer a ton of specifics about Vaughn’s character, but a post from Johnson’s Instagram actually fills in a lot of details:

Johnson also notes in his post that production is starting tomorrow, so this all seems to be moving pretty fast.
