Primetime Emmy Awards Target Game Of Thrones

14 July 2016 12:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Emmy nods have hit the Internet, and there are a few surprises among these stellar examples of Primetime TV. Game of Thrones leads the pack with a whopping 23 nominations, which probably will not surprise anyone who has tuned in to the show this season. It’s certainly one of the better programs on TV right now, and this season has been particularly stellar.

More surprising – and, in some ways, more deserved – are several nods to Mr. Robot, including an Outstanding Drama and Lead Actor In A Drama for Rami Malek. Christian Slater gets nothing, despite his Golden Globe win, but I guess we can’t have everything. While Malek has some serious competition in his category, including Hollywood heavyweights Liev Schrieber and Kevin Spacey, here’s hoping that he takes home the prize. He certainly deserves it.

While Game of Thrones dominates in many categories, there’s quite a »

Emmy Nominations 2016: full nominee list

Chris Longo Jul 15, 2016

The Television Academy has spoken! Here are your 2016 Emmy Nominations...

The time to fill out your Emmy Madness Bracket is now. Wait, wrong event. But that would be fun, wouldn’t it? Kirsten Dunst slugging it out versus her network foe Sarah Paulson for Emmy gold. How about perennial favorite Game Of Thrones pitted against underdog newcomer Mr. Robot in the championship round? In the “peak TV” era, maybe a bracket formatted competition is the only true way to determine the best in the world of television.

Anyway, we’ll have to settle for fan polls and speculation as we countdown to the 68th Annual Emmy Award on Sunday, Sept. 18th on ABC. Until then, here is the list of nominees for the major categories. You can find the full list here.

Emmys 2016 Nominations: ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Mr. Robot,’ ‘The Americans’ Get Major Nods

14 July 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The critics spoke, and TV Academy members listened.

Two TV critic faves, “The Americans” and “Mr. Robot,” managed to break through and land Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Drama category this year, while the comedy category was also dominated by well-reviewed series, such as newcomer “Master of None.”

The Television Academy’s attempts in recent years to broaden its membership, expand categories and open up its voting process continues to pay off, as new blood managed to sneak into many of the major categories. Not only did “The Americans” and “Mr. Robot” break through on the series side, but several of the shows’ leads landed their first-ever Emmy acting nomination.

But many favorites also returned with a splash as well, including last year’s Outstanding Drama Series winner, “Game of Thrones.” The HBO juggernaut landed 23 nominations, the most of any program this year – and down just a tick from last »

The Alternate Emmy Nominations

8 July 2016 12:41 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

With the real Emmys coming next week, we fill out our ballot with less-likely, but definitely worthy nominees.

Emmy nominations are announced next Thursday and the usual suspects are all expected to pop up. Do not be surprised when Mr. Robot, Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey, Orange is the New Black, and Better Call Saul dominate all the categories, rightfully so. They all are coming off of incredible and explosive seasons. They deserve the praise. But, what about all the other amazing shows on television? They absolutely deserve some love too, but stand almost no chance at being nominated. Our response here at Film School Rejects? The Alternate Emmys. Readers, meet the other shows you should be watching.

Best Drama Series

Outlander, The Leftovers, Jessica Jones, The Americans, UnREAL, and Hannibal

Ugly Betty: Castmembers Reunite for Atx Festival

13 June 2016 6:44 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Ugly Betty is back in fashion. Last week, the cast of the cancelled ABC series reunited at Austin's Atx Television Festival, reports Deadline.

The dramedy starred America Ferrera as Betty Suarez, an ambitious young woman who lands a job at a prestigious fashion magazine. The cast included Eric Mabius, Judith Light, Vanessa Williams, Becki Newton, Michael Urie, Ana Ortiz, Rebecca Romijn, Mark Indelicato, Ashley Jensen, and Tony Plana. The show lasted four seasons, running from 2006 to 2010.

‘Ugly Betty’ Reunion: America Ferrera Pitches Hulu Revival Movie

11 June 2016 8:17 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The cast of “Ugly Betty” reunited Saturday night at the Atx Television Festival — and they pitched another possible reunion.

America Ferrera, Michael Urie, Tony Plana, Eric Mabius, Ana Ortiz, Vanessa Williams, Mark Indelicato, Rebecca Romijn, Ashley Jensen, Judith Light and showrunner Silvio Horta gathered together at the Austin, Texas fest where they reminisced about the ABC series that ran four seasons.

“It was like losing a family,” Ferrera said about when the show went off the air. She added, “There’s always a little piece of me…that still doesn’t want to let this go.”

With that said, the cast spoke up about a possible revival of the critically-acclaimed show. After all, TV biz is in the midst of the streaming age in which anything can be brought back, it seems. (Last year’s Atx hosted a “Gilmore Girls” reunion, and one year later, Netflix is rebooting the beloved series.)

“Hulu’s going to pick us up for a two-hour special,” Ferrera said in jest. However, she continued with a pitch for the revival: “That’s not true, but if you tweet it…Everybody here take out your phone. Hashtag: Betty Reboot. We need a hashtag and tweet it out and then we’re going to get Hulu to buy a two-hour special.”

Though Ferrera was seemingly joking with her pitch, Horta also chimed in on the possibility, and it was apparent that he has thought about the idea — under one condition: the entire original team would be involved.

“Here’s the only thing I know for sure — if we were to do something, it would be a dream, but everybody on this stage would have to be involved. And Becki Newton,” Horta said.

Then Ferrera jutted in, exclaiming, “I mean, it took 20 minutes for everyone to say yes to my email to be at Atx!’

Drop a comment below: would you watch an “Ugly Betty” revival? (If so, you can tweet #HuluBringBackBetty.)

TV Supporting Actors Shine in Colorful Ensembles Like ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Silicon Valley’

7 June 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The set of every TV series is like a family, or so we’ve been told, but come awards time, not every supporting cast member in an ensemble series family will make the cut for an Emmy nomination. And for some actors, that’s Ok.

“It’s the old saying that it’s about supporting each other telling the story as best as you can,” says Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne on “Game of Thrones.”

But is it harder to get recognition in an ensemble series? “This way madness lies,” Christie says. “I could never think, ‘Oh, I’m competing against someone else,’ because the reason I do this job is to investigate and illuminate humanity, and if I’m able to have a good time doing that, then I’ve enjoyed my job and hopefully done it well.”

“I learned a long time ago if you think about awards, »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Emmy voters love Allison Janney, who already has a total of six statuettes for her work on three different shows — “The West Wing,” “Mom” and “Masters of Sex.” Janney looks to be a sure thing to land a third consecutive nomination for her work on “Mom” this year, having won the last two years in a row.

Can anyone overtake Janney? Perhaps previous winner Julie Bowen, who continues to score nominations even when other “Modern Family” co-stars have dropped off the list. If there’s a surge of love for the former champ, her co-star Sofia Vergara could also score another nomination.

There are plenty of previous nominees who have yet to win, including Mayim Bialik (“The Big Bang Theory”), Anna Chlumsky (“Veep”), Gaby Hoffmann (“Transparent”), Jane Krakowski (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) and Niecy Nash (“Getting On”). Hoffmann’s co-stars Judith Light and Amy Landecker also had standout years, while HBO »

Caitlyn Jenner's Role on Transparent Revealed! Hint: It Doesn't Involve Much Acting, After All

Caitlyn Jenner's character in Amazon's Transparent isn't really a character at all! The Olympian, reality star, advocate and, now, actress will play herself in the award-winning drama about a father who comes out as a transgender woman, according to one of the show's stars. "She's herself," Judith Light, who plays Shelly Pfefferman, tells Entertainment Tonight of Jenner's season 3 role, which has already concluded filming. "It's perfect. What could be more perfect?

Judith Light Talks ‘Transparent’ Season 2 Bathtub Scene

3 June 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Judith Light’s Shelly Pfefferman was already one of the most enjoyable parts of “Transparent” season one, and the Amazon dramedy’s second season only gave Light more room to explore the lovably meddling mama. But her standout moment came — excuse the pun — early, when Shelly and her ex, Maura [Jeffrey Tambor], share a steamy encounter in the bathroom. On the page it looked like a daunting task, but the intimacy was crucial to the story. As usual, Light pulls the scene off with aplomb. “It took so much for me to get there not only personally and internally,” Light says. “The support that I got was so huge and so incredible.”

31 May 2016 1:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The third season of Transparent isn’t even out yet, but it’s already assured that The Pfeffermans have a bright future ahead of them. Amazon announced that its Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning show, about a family whose patriarch (Jeffrey Tambor) comes out as transgender, has been picked up for a fourth season. In a statement, show creator Jill Soloway said, “The Pfeffermans have many more stories to tell and we can’t wait to keep making them.” The series, which is inspired by Soloway’s own father, who came out as transgender, features Tambor, Judith Light and Jay Duplass. The third season of Transparent kicks off on Prime Video later this year. The fourth season will be released via the streaming site in 2017. »
