Emmy Predictions 2014: Outstanding comedy/drama supporting actress

18 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Because it's NBC's turn to air the Primetime Emmy Awards this year, and because the Peacock would understandably rather air its lucrative Sunday night NFL package in September, the ceremony will take place in late August again. And as an added wrinkle, this year's ceremony will actually happen on a Monday, August 25 at 8 p.m., with Seth Meyers hosting. Between now and then, Dan and I will be making our picks for both who should and will win many of the major categories — if you're wagering, keep in mind that Dan tends to be much better at predicting the winners than I am, but also that he was just as flummoxed as I by last year's winners like Jeff Daniels, Merritt Wever and Bobby Cannavale — continuing as we shift into the acting categories with comedy and drama supporting actress.

Editors' Emmy predictions slugfest: Who'll win Best Drama Supporting Actress?

12 August 2014 5:36 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

In our new prediction slugfest video, Gold Derby Editors are wary of declaring Anna Gunn ("Breaking Bad") a lock to win Best Drama Supporting Actress because Emmy voters always like to throw us a few surprises. In particular, there are two other ladies with stand-out episode submissions that make this a real race: Joanne Froggatt ("Downton Abbey") and Christine Baranski ("The Good Wife"). Joining me in our latest video (watch below) are Rob Licuria, Daniel Montgomery, Matt Noble and Charles Bright as we analyze the episodes submitted to Emmy judges as examples of their best work from the past TV season. Gunn went with "Ozymandias," Froggatt chose "Episode 4.2" and Baranski submitted "The Last Call." Other nominees: Maggie Smith for "Downton Abbey" ("The London Season"), Christina Hendricks for "Mad Men" ("The Strategy") and Lena Headey for "Game of Thrones" ("T..." »

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

7 August 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | 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, »

Emmy Episode Analysis: Lena Headey ('Game of Thrones') is tragic villain in 'Lion and the Rose'

1 August 2014 9:24 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

This is Lena Headey's first Best Drama Supporting Actress nomination for her role as Cersei Lannister on "Game of Thrones." Can she upset frontrunner Anna Gunn ("Breaking Bad") and take home an Emmy? -Break- Exclusive video: 'Game of Thrones' star Lena Headey defends controversial sex scene Synopsis: In "The Lion and the Rose," all of King's Landing is preparing for the royal wedding of King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) and Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer). At the pre-wedding banquet, Joffrey is lavished with gifts, including a Valyrian steel sword that his grandfather, Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance), had forged in a prior episode. Joffrey begins to torment his uncle Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) by contemptuously chopping in half the rare book Tyrion had given to him. At the reception after the wedding ceremony, Lady Olenna (Diana Rigg) reminds Tywin of the debt the crown owes to the Iron Bank of Braavos. »

Aimee Richardson Is A 'Princess For Hire' After 'Game Of Thrones' Recasting

31 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Aimee Richardson, who played Princess Myrcella on the first two seasons of HBO’s Game of Thrones, wants people to know she’s now a “Princess For Hire.”

Aimee Richardson Is Princess For Hire

Richardson, 16, had assumed that she’d be back in the role of Myrcella for Game of Throne’s fifth season. As the second oldest Baratheon child – that was actually born of the incest between her mother Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and Cersei's twin brother Jamie (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) – Myrcella stood to be crowned queen following Joffrey’s (Jack Gleeson) death at The Purple Wedding.

Following The Purple Wedding episode, Richardson took to Vine, placing a crown upon her head and saying, “I’m ready.”

Unfortunately for Richardson, Game of Thrones producers announced at Comic-Con that Nell Tiger Free would be replacing her in the role of Myrcella for the upcoming season. Once again taking to Vine, Richardson »

Emmys Poll 2014: Who Should Win Best Supporting Actress in a Drama?

31 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Not-so-good news for Breaking Bad‘s Anna Gunn and Downton Abbey‘s Maggie Smith. Not since Huff‘s Blythe Danner strode up to the podium in 2006 has there been a repeat winner in the Emmy race for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

If Emmy voters continue the trend of spreading the wealth in the category, Gunn and Smith — who respectively snagged Supporting Actress statuettes in 2013 and 2012 — will have to settle for the honor of simply being nominated.

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 | | 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 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 | | 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 ...
