Why Do Certain Actors on Ensemble Shows Stand Out for Emmy Nominations?

4 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Robert Altman would be proud. His signature ensemble filmmaking style has become the norm rather than the exception in dramatic series. However magnetic the leads, they’re invariably surrounded by distinctive character players who get multiple chances to shine across a typical season.

Which creates an annual knotty problem for Emmy voters as they consider the supporting categories. Some turns can be singled out as guest actor or actress — late-1980s additions conveniently allowing the academy to spread a little more wealth around. But nominators are still faced with tapping only a select few per skein. Even more mysteriously, they’re wont to proffer a nod one year, only to deny one the next for the very same role. For example, the first year “Modern Family” was eligible, everyone in the cast but Ed O’Neill received a nom. For the next three years, the entire ensemble was recognized. But this year, »

26 July 2014 5:51 AM, PDT | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

A new blooper reel released at Comic-Con in San Diego shows “Game of Thrones” stars bumbling lines, clowning around and otherwise adding some levity the serious business of blood and iron in the Seven Kingdoms. Stars like Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey and Peter Dinklage don’t let the show’s heavy themes detract from the fun. In the clip, Charles Dance (Lord Tywin Lannister) sits impatiently on the Iron Throne until he realizes it’s his turn to say lines, only he forgets what they are. [...] »

Eva Green Makes This Empire "Rise"

17 July 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Two years after remaking Romero’s socially aware Dawn of the Dead, director Zack Snyder jumped aboard 300, the action porn realization of Frank Miller’s graphic novel. Sin City had just come out and Miller was in. The movie would go on to cash in big, while making an international star out of Gerard Butler, Game of ThronesLena Headey, and, yes, even young Magneto himself, Michael Fassbender. Snyder also legitimized himself as an A-Lister and went on to direct Alan Moore’s mesmerizing epic Watchmen and franchise reboot Man of Steel, with the Justice League movie on deck. Fast-forward to 2014, and Warner Brothers tried to catch lightning in a bottle again, returning to the shores of Greece, this time with an Athenian navy taking on the Persians and a more recognizable cast. The ride is worth the wait, thanks to two words: Eva Green.

Forecast: 'Purge,' 'Sex Tape' Challenge 'Apes'

17 July 2014 4:53 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Friday Am Update: Playing at 2,194 locations, The Purge: Anarchy earned an estimated $2.6 million from late Thursday shows. In comparison, the first Purge grossed $3.4 million on Thursday night. This drop suggests that The Purge: Anarchy will fall short of the first movie's $34 million opening weekend. Meanwhile, Sex Tape earned $1.1 million on Thursday night. That's less than half of the $2.56 million that Neighbors took in on Thursday, but is also on par with last year's The Heat ($1 million). Sex Tape will likely finish with over $20 million this weekend. Forecast: The Purge: Anarchy, Sex Tape and Planes: Fire & Rescue could all open north of $20 million this weekend. Still, it's likely that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes holds on to first place for the second week in a row.Major releases have been falling hard this Summer: The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Godzilla, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Transformers: Age of Extinction »

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5 Directors Announced

15 July 2014 6:39 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The ending of Game of Thrones season 4 is still fresh in many minds, but already the work is beginning on the next season of the HBO series. And while fans debate about how long it’ll take for the TV show to catch up with the published books, those behind the show haven’t been afraid to play with expectations and present events differently from how author George R.R. Martin originally intended.

That risk taking has clearly paid off, considering the series has earned itself a total of 19 Emmy award nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series and a pair of Best Supporting nominations for Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey. And when Game of ...
