If I had an Emmy ballot 2015: Who should be nominated?

29 June 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Voting closed for Emmy nominations on Friday. Ordinarily, I would have already completed my usual If I Had An Emmy Ballot exercise by now, but various other projects got in the way, which means what I'm about to post is even more hypothetical than usual, since it's after the voting deadline. As always, I'm working with the choices listed on the actual Emmy ballots, which means I have to go along with where various shows and actors were categorized and submitted. So I have to consider "Orange Is the New Black" a drama, have to consider Key and Peele supporting actors on their own show, and can't go off the ballot to try nominating an actor like Max Greenfield from "New Girl," who didn't even put his name up for submission. Also, while I've done these as a bunch of separate posts the last few years, this thing's already so »

‘You’re the Worst’ to ‘Transparent': Finding Dark Comedy in the City of Angels

10 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Although fear of production flight is at a fever pitch in Hollywood and shows are clamoring for California filming tax incentives, several new comedies are not only proudly set in L.A., but also embrace everything the city has to offer — stereotypes and all.

Jay Duplass is in a unique position to talk about the topic. One of the stars of L.A.-set “Transparent” (Amazon) he is also, along with his brother Mark and friend Steve Zissis, a co-creator of HBO’s “Togetherness.”

The relationship dramedy, which stars the latter Duplass and Zissis, as well as Melanie Lynskey and Amanda Peet, explores life in the L.A. neighborhood of Eagle Rock and covers charter schools, family trips to the beach and other things those in that community hold dear.

Jay Duplass, who has lived in Eagle Rock for seven years, says the location made for an ideal backdrop for his series because, »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

2 June 2015 9:09 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sofia Vergara finally fell out of this category last year. Is there hope Julie Bowen will join her this time around? Probably not, but it would be great to make room for the many, many women that deserve some recognition here. With "Orange is the New Black" competing in drama now, one can pretty much assume Allison Janney will be nominated here as long as "Mom" is on the air (not that we're complaining as she and that show are fantastic), and it's going to be tough to push out the seemingly tenured Bowen, Mayim Bialik ("The Big Bang Theory") and Anna Chlumsky ("Veep").

Here's the Full List of Critics' Choice TV Awards Winners

1 June 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It should come as no surprise that critically-acclaimed series such as "The Americans" and "Silicon Valley" took home top prizes at the fifth annual Critics' Choice TV Awards on Sunday night (it's right there in the name of the event, after all). But there was plenty of love for popular shows, too, proving that quality programming is becoming more widely available and amenable to audiences during this so-called golden age of television.

"The Americans" and "Silicon Valley" each claimed high honors in the best drama and comedy series categories, respectively, and their home networks were the biggest winners of the night: HBO snagged seven statuettes, while FX collected four. "Silicon Valley" was among the shows that won multiple awards, with T.J. Miller taking home the trophy for best supporting actor in a comedy.

Freshman series "Better Call Saul" and "Transparent" also walked away with two trophies apiece, while new sensation »

The 5th annual Critics’ Choice TV Awards took place Sunday at the Beverly Hilton hotel and aired live on A&E. “So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley emceed the proceedings — and also found time to accept the prize for best reality host midway through the show. Despite playfully jabbing rival host Tom Bergeron during her intro by joking she’d purposefully gotten him relegated to one of the back tables in the ballroom, she was spotted warmly embracing the “Dancing with the Stars” mainstay during the ad break.

The first prize of the night went to “Better Call Saul’s” Jonathan Banks for best supporting actor in a drama, and the thesp also had the dubious honor of earning the ceremony’s first (but far from the last) bleep during his acceptance speech. The “Breaking Bad” spinoff later won a second award for Bob Odenkirk’s lead »

The pair chatted about taking inspiration from Bruce Jenner, deciding who the better mom was (Maura), and why it’s so important to tell this story with an older actor.We’re excited about Transparent. What are you hoping happens with Maura next season?Jeffrey Tambor: You know, I would like Maura to have more friends, and I really want her to be happier and more settled. More settled?Jt: Well, when I think about her life, I would like her to become a better parent. »

Ah, the Critics' Choice Awards. Or more accurately, "what you wish the Emmy nominations looked like."

The 5th Annual Critics' Choice Television Awards, held by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, will be broadcast live on May 31st at 8 p.m. on A&E. Check out the full list of nominees below: Best comedy series Broad City (Comedy Central) Jane the Virgin (The CW) Mom (CBS) Silicon Valley (HBO) Transparent (Amazon) Veep (HBO) You’re the Worst (FX) [caption id="attachment_410423" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Fox[/caption] Best actor in a comedy series Anthony Anderson, Blackish (ABC) Chris Messina, The Mindy Project (Fox) Jeffrey Tambor, »
