Whitney Houston, Jennie Rivera and more of 2012's Gone but Not Forgotten

31 December 2012 11:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

As a new year dawns, a tribute to those we've lost in the year now ending is merited ... and in 2012, those sad milestones have encompassed some of the most popular personalities in television history.

Andy Griffith: The actor-producer who put Mayberry on the map forever will be remembered as one of television's most genial personalities, also extending to his run as wily lawyer Matlock.

Dick Clark: The number of music stars who owe at least part of their success to the "American Bandstand" maestro is incalculable. Thanks to him, people also enjoy "New Year's Rockin' Eve," receive American Music Awards and have a greater appreciation of bloopers. Here's a "so long" salute to you, Dick.

Larry Hagman: The truly unfortunate irony of the veteran actor's recent death is that he was just starting his second round of "Dallas" success as master schemer J.R. Ewing. He'll also »

The ‘Parenthood’ Method Versus ‘Glee:’ Dealing With Difficult Subjects on TV Series

12 November 2012 9:12 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Carson Blackwelder

Television Contributor

***

NBC’s Parenthood returns tonight after two weeks off the air, bringing with it all of the difficult issues the series tackles year after year.

Season four of this intense family drama centers around Kristina Braverman’s (Monica Potter) shocking diagnosis and emotional battle with breast cancer.

Interestingly enough, cancer has been with the show since the very beginning. Actress Maura Tierney was originally cast to play Sarah Braverman, the second child of the Braverman family. However, the drama moved its premiere from the fall to midseason because of Tierney’s real-life breast cancer.

Unfortunately, scheduling conflicts between treatments and production led to Tierney leaving the cast of ParenthoodLauren Graham, everyone’s favorite Gilmore Girls mom, replaced her. Having this tumultuous beginning poised Parenthood to be a series that could discuss serious issues and do so in a mature, sophisticated manner.

Gripe Focus: Comedy At The Emmys Remain A Bad Joke

24 September 2012 3:36 PM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

It’s a shame that the path of the television year must end on the Emmys, the awards show contained several highs, many lows and just some unfathomable results. Frustration, celebration, and embarrassment come to mind when mentioning the 2012 Emmys. Is it different any other year? No, not really. But its results sour the memory of a great year in television, right as we’re about to usher a new season this week at BuzzFocus.  There were more deserving shows that were nominated but for whatever reasons unknown, the powers that be don’t agree.

The Academy of Television Arts & Science in some instances can look rather progressive. One minute they appear to have their shit together one moment–honoring Showtime’s Homeland, Outstanding Drama Series–but at the same time have their heads up their collective asses when they awarded ABC’s Modern Family nearly every major piece of hardware it could qualify for. »

The winners of the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards are...

24 September 2012 2:58 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the announcement of the Creative Arts Emmys earlier this month, the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards were handed out last night during a star-studded ceremony at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles as the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences celebrated the very best in primetime programming over the past year.

Despite being nominated in 17 categories, acclaimed drama Mad Men failed to register a single award, with its four year stream as Outstanding Drama Series broken by the Golden Globe-winning Homeland, while the other top honours went to Modern Family (Outstanding Comedy Series), Game Change (Outstanding Miniseries or TV Movie), The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (Outstanding Variety, Music, or Comedy Series) and The Amazing Race (Outstanding Reality-Competition Program).

Homeland continued its success in the acting categories, with Damian Lewis and Clare Danes named as Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress (Drama) respectively), while it also received the award for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series. »

Homeland and Modern Family Clean Up at Primetime Emmy Awards; Mad Men Shut Out

24 September 2012 7:18 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards were given out last night, and longtime favorite Mad Men had a pretty rough evening.  Matthew Weiner’s AMC drama was shut out in every category in which it was nominated (Christina Hendricks was robbed), denying the series a record-breaking fifth consecutive Best Drama Series Emmy in favor of Showtime’s excellent freshman series Homeland.  The cable thriller nearly swept the drama series category, even landing Damian Lewis a surprising Best Actor win over perennial favorite Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and Mad Men’s way overdue Jon Hamm.  It’s hard to complain, though, as Homeland had a positively stellar first season and star Claire Danes gave a powerhouse performance as a psychologically plagued CIA analyst, for which she was awarded Best Actress. On the comedy side of things the awards were a tad more predictable, with ABC’s Modern Family pulling off another sweep in the genre. »

Homeland Cleans Up at the 2012 Emmy Awards

24 September 2012 7:15 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Well if you hadn't really heard of Homeland prior to this weekend, you probably have by now. The Showtime series pulled off a major upset at the 64th Annual Emmy Awards last night, winning a large chunk of the major awards in the Drama category over favourites like Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones. Claire Danes and Damian Lewis both took home awards for Lead Actress and Actor in a Drama Series, while the show also broke Mad Men's four-year win streak for Outstanding Drama Series. Elsewhere, Aaron Paul won his second Emmy for his supporting performance as Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad, while Julia Louis-Dreyfus won Best Lead Actress in a Comedy for Veep. Modern Family still took the Outstanding Comedy Series, however, while the HBO movie Game Change took the Outstanding Mini-Series or TV Movie. Kevin Costner did manage to pick up some »

Winners of 2012 Emmy Awards Announced!

24 September 2012 3:40 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

The 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, took place on Sunday (September 23rd). Showtime's "Homeland" won in the Best Drama category, denying "Mad Men" a record fifth consecutive win. "Modern Family" took home its third straight Best Comedy award. Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" won its 10th consecutive Emmy, which resulted in Jon Stewart being censored during his acceptance speech for saying the F-word. Julianne Moore (pictured) won for Best Actress in a Mini-Series for her portrayal of Sarah Palin in HBO's "Game Change." Moore stated: "Wow, I feel so validated because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down." And Jon Cryer won Best Actor for "Two and a Half Men," something he admitted was not possible with Charlie Sheen around. "The show was really structured around [Sheen's] character, so it was silly for me to be in the lead character [category]. That's changed [with Ashton Kutcher]. It's more of a partnership »

2012 Emmys Winners – Homeland & Modern Family Score Big

24 September 2012 1:08 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The results of the television awards ceremony of the year are always something to look forward to – the quality of the small screen has only been improving over the past decade or two, and it’s nice to see credit given where credit’s due.

Mad Men, Modern Family, Downton Abbey, Breaking Bad, Sherlock, and 30 Rock led this year’s nominations, and it’s Modern Family and Homeland that have come away with the most wins, taking four awards apiece.

Homeland has been one of the most talked-about dramas over the past year, and leading stars Damian Lewis (doing a Hugh Laurie, being an English actor playing an American on Us TV) and Claire Danes came away with the Leading Actor/Actress prizes in the dramatic categories.

Modern Family continues its reign as the best comedy in recent years, and dominated the Supporting Actor/Actress awards in the comedy categories, »
