SAG Awards predictions secret: Size matters for comedies like ‘Orange is the New Black,’ ‘Glee,’ ‘Desperate Housewives’ …
When it comes to rewarding the best comedic cast on television, the SAG Awards often simply go with the biggest cast. Recent winners like “Orange is the New Black” (2014-2016), “Glee” (2009), “Desperate Housewives” (2004-2005) and “Ally McBeal” (1998) all prevailed thanks in part to having the most cast members on the voting ballot. Interestingly enough, all four of these were also hour-long dramedies, which suggests SAG voters are more apt to give the prize to large casts when they’re also in large productions.

What does this statistic mean in terms of predicting the 2018 SAG Awards? “Orange is the New Black” once again boasts the biggest comedy cast with a record-setting 45 men and women nominated for the Netflix prison series. That’s up from 37 cast members in 2016, 34 in 2015, and 40 in 2014. Of this year’s other nominated ensembles, Netflix’s “Glow” consists of 18 cast members, followed by HBO’s “Veep” at 15, ABC

Sundance 2018 Ushers In the Age of Independent TV With Indie Episodics Line-Up
At the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, TV is invading the schedule in a whole new way. The Park City film fest has previously dabbled in what’s possible on the small screen, but this year marks the launch of the Indie Episodics section — which will spotlight TV pilots that mostly lack mainstream distribution.

The selections include “America to Me,” a new docu-series by “Hoop Dreams” director Steve James; as well as “The Mortified Guide,” a screen adaptation of the popular stage show “Mortified,” spotlighting the most embarrassing true stories of adolescence. There’s also “This Close,” showcasing star/creators Josh Feldman and Shoshannah Stern (both of whom are deaf), and “Franchesca,” featuring digital star and “The Nightly Show” writer/contributor Franchesca Ramsey.

This marks a major change for Sundance, and a renewed commitment to independent television. While Sundance has featured TV programming since the premiere of “Top of the Lake” in

Review: A Bad Moms Christmas (2017)

Christmas is upon us and with every approaching Christmas season, audiences can expect a seasonally themed comedy (or two) to crop up in November/December. This year, in addition to the Daddy’s Home 2 joy, we have a festive sequel to Jon Lucas and Scott Moore’s fine Comedy hit Bad Moms. Unfortunately it seems that A Bad Moms Christmas makes the fundamental error of not actually having many (or arguably any) jokes on show.

The concept is very by the books for festive family fracas fare and sees the three bad matriarchs from the last film – Amy (Mila Kunis), Carla (Kathryn Hahn) and Kiki (Kristen Bell) – prepare for the big show for mums (sorry, ‘moms’)…Christmas. But their job of taking all the stress of the holidays and styling it out will be made even worse this year, as their own mothers – Ruth (Christine Baranski), Sandy (Cheryl Hines) and

Box Office: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Rules With $121 Million Weekend

Box Office: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Rules With $121 Million Weekend
Disney-Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok” is heading for a stellar opening weekend with $121 million at 4,080 North American locations — the fourth best launch of 2017.

The third Thor movie is also putting an emphatic end to the month-long box office slump that saw the worst October in a decade. Among 2017 titles, its debut weekend trails only “Beauty and the Beast” at $174.8 million, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” at $146.5 million and “It” at $123.4 million.

Thor: Ragnarok” also officially launches the holiday season with a major bang. Moviegoing has been battered this year by a subpar second half that’s pulled down 2017 grosses by 5%, but it should rebound somewhat, thanks to “Thor: Ragnorak” — which already cut the decline to 4.8% as of Sunday with $8.93 billion. Warner Bros.-DC Entertainment’s “Justice League” (which opens Nov. 17) and Disney-Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” (opening Dec. 15) should keep the positive momentum going.

“November has been a hotbed for blockbusters and is

A Bad Moms Christmas review – a sweet sequel

The defiantly imperfect gang get ready to celebrate the holidays – this time with even more moms

A Bad Moms Christmas is neither about Christmas for Bad Moms, nor a Bad Christmas for Moms. It is simply about being a mum, at Christmas. “Why can’t my husband buy his own mom a Christmas present?” is this sweet sequel’s thesis statement. Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn form a bawdy threesome; Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines and Susan Sarandon their respective mothers. Baranski is too controlling (“moms don’t enjoy, they bring joy”), Hines too codependent and Sarandon like a teenager let loose, but their clashing personalities form part of the festivities.

'Bad Moms Christmas' Off to a Slow Start

  • Yidio
2017-11-03T07:01:56-07:00'Bad Moms Christmas' Off to a Slow Start

The coming weekend is unquestionably going to belong to Thor: Ragnarok, but comedy sequel A Bad Moms Christmas hoped to get a substantial portion of the leftovers. Part of the movie's strategy was to hit the ground running by opening on Wednesday instead of Thursday. Unfortunately, all the early opening did was point out the movie's weaknesses. The sequel, so far, is not measuring up to the original in terms of critics' reviews, audience reactions, or ticket sales.

Via The Hollywood Reporter.

STXfilms' A Bad Moms Christmas debuted to a muted $2.6 million on Wednesday from 3,615 theaters.

The sequel — a follow-up to the 2016 hit comedy Bad Moms — is opening midweek to provide some distance from Thor: Ragnarok, which unfurls everywhere on Friday.

Going after women, A Bad Moms Christmas had hoped to post a five-day

Movie Review – A Bad Moms Christmas (2017)

A Bad Moms Christmas, 2017.

Written and Directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.

Starring Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Susan Sarandon, Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines, Jay Hernández, Oona Laurence, Justin Hartley, Peter Gallagher, Emjay Anthony, Lyle Brocato, Wanda Sykes, and Christina Applegate.

Synopsis:

A Bad Moms Christmas follows our three under-appreciated and over-burdened women as they rebel against the challenges and expectations of the Super Bowl for moms: Christmas.

It only takes about five minutes to reach the verdict that A Bad Moms Christmas (once again written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore who have the fortune of a full cast reunion) is one of 2017’s worst movies. There are creepy jokes about pre-pubescent breasts growing in (made even more weird considering that it’s one of the mothers’ memories), a young girl (Oona Laurence, who is actually quite the capable child actor, especially when dealt heavy

A Bad Moms Christmas review – uproarious sequel is older but no wiser

Moms’ moms Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines and Susan Sarandon besiege Mila Kunis and co over the festive season in a silly, sentimental but very funny follow-up to the 2016 comedy

Sequel-franchising a comedy by bringing in the uproariously inappropriate older generation is becoming a bit of a familiar move. Daddy’s Home is about to do it, and now it’s the turn of A Bad Moms Christmas, an entertaining film largely unconcerned about good taste and where, or if, an apostrophe should go in the title.

It follows up the story of Bad Moms, which came out just last year, about those woefully inadequate parents and caregivers Amy, Kiki and Carla, played by Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn. Now their own terrifying mothers are coming to stay for Christmas, played by Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines and Susan Sarandon. They are respectively named Ruth, Sandy and finally Isis – as the latter helpfully explains,
