Emmy Ballots Revealed: Producers and Writers Secretly Share The Reasons Behind Their Picks

29 August 2017 2:37 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This may be the most unpredictable Emmy race in years, particularly on the drama side. “Stranger Things” and “Veep” lead the Emmy odds according to the prognosticators at Gold Derby, but don’t count out shows like “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Black-ish” and “Atlanta.” At least, that’s the takeaway from a handful of writers, producers and directors who agreed to anonymously share their Emmy ballots with IndieWire.

Not that this year’s picks were easy to make. “I watch a lot of TV,” said one writer. “And yet there is not a single category where I have seen every nominee. Seems impossible to judge — and crazy to think a winner is actually the best, rather than just the best of what most people have seen.”

That’s the high-class problem of Peak TV, and why outlets like HBO and Netflix spend handsomely on For Your Consideration campaigns. That’s »

Emmy Crafts: Inside The Toughest Races and the Biggest Trends

28 August 2017 4:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Upside Down of “Stranger Things” became an apt metaphor for this divisive year, and, maybe not so strangely, “Stranger Things,” along with several other Best Drama Emmy contenders, offered unifying themes to combat the forces of oppression, hate, and turmoil.

These included “Westworld,” “The Crown,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Feud: Bette and Joan,” and “Big Little Lies.” And, not surprisingly, they all offered stellar craftsmanship in support of their unifying themes.

The Crown

Showrunner Peter Morgan told IndieWire that his biggest takeaway has been the realization of the necessary bond between the monarchy and Parliament. “Sometimes the monarchy screws up and sometimes the politicians screw up,” he said. “And it takes one or the other to fix the problem.”

In Season 1, that unity is forged between young Queen Elizabeth II (nominated Claire Foy) and that old war horse, Prime Minister Winston Churchill (nominated John Lithgow). Together, they help Great »

How Emmy Rivals James Lipton and Neil deGrasse Tyson Chase — and Edit — Celebrities

28 August 2017 12:37 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

You wouldn’t think that National Geographic talk show “StarTalk,” hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, would have anything in common with its Emmy rival for Outstanding Informational Series or Special, 90-year-old James Lipton’s “Inside the Actor’s Studio,” which Bravo airs to a global audience of 94 million in 125 countries. “StarTalk” started as a Syrius podcast — NatGeo cherrypicks 20 episodes for the TV show — and is up for its third Emmy, while “Studio,” with 20 nominations and one win in 2013, is the sixth most-nominated show ever.

Both men wrangle celebrities, who submit to being interviewed on camera at length, and then edit the hell out of what they get. Lipton and Tyson use this celebrity wattage to lure viewers into watching subjects near to their hearts: the art of acting and the power of science, respectively.

How To Watch the McGregor/Mayweather Fight

26 August 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Even if you know nothing about boxing, you’ve surely heard by now that there’s a high-profile fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor tonight. The bout is unusual in that McGregor isn’t, strictly speaking, a boxer — the swaggering Irishman is an Mma fighter and the current Ufc Lightweight Champion — as well as the fact that it’s expected to be among the biggest pay-per-view events of all time.

Acclaimed French actress Jeanne Moreau, whose films include such masterpieces as “Jules and Jim” and “Diary of a Chambermaid,” has died. She was 89.

The mayor of the Paris district in which Moreau lived confirmed her death.

French President Emmanuel Macron called her “a legend of cinema and theater … an actress engaged in the whirlwind of life with an absolute freedom.” Pierre Lescure, president of the Cannes Film Festival, tweeted: “She was strong and she didn’t like to see people pour their hearts out. Sorry, Jeanne, but this is beyond us. We are crying.”

22 June 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Woody Allen is often described as a man of few words — but Scarlett Johansson knows exactly which topics get him talking.

In a clip shared exclusively with People, the Rough Night actress tells Inside the Actors Studio host James Lipton that the 81-year-old director didn’t have “much interest” in talking to her about her roles while they worked together on projects, yet “he talks a lot.”

“About food? Dinner?” Lipton asks, to which Johansson quips: “Oh, any old thing — loves to talk about sex, people’s relationships, neurotic behaviors, wonton soup. All kinds of stuff.”

Deathstroke Vol. 1: The Professional Review

14 March 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review is based off a volume that collects Deathstroke: Rebirth #1 and Deathstroke #1-5.

It’s without question that Deathstroke has seen his fair share of relaunches in recent history. In the New 52 alone, he had two distinct runs to call his own, the second of which was especially memorable because we had Tony Daniel writing and drawing the world’s greatest assassin. But, after his exit, the title became a bit parabolic and suffered from the utilization of some rather silly villains.

Luckily, author Christopher Priest was able to get Slade Wilson back on track in the Rebirth era. And it’s not just the fact that he knows how to write for this character – believe me, he most certainly does –  it’s that he knows how to tell the right story with Slade; supporting characters, tone, setting, you name it.

Much like Daniel and several others before him, »

‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ and the Legacy of Joss Whedon 20 Years Later

9 March 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

“Well, there's nobody who didn't have a horrible high school experience except for, like, one guy I met once,” Joss Whedon said while sitting down with Et on the set of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in 1997.

At the time, the show was in production on its second season, with everyone -- including stars Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy), David Boreanaz (Angel) and Alyson Hannigan (Willow) -- returning to work on a bona fide hit for The WB. Whedon summed up his own high school experience as “constant humiliation and rejection,” an apt time period for a TV horror series. (Note: This was probably before they ever met, but I still like to believe the “one guy” he was referring to is Nathan Fillion.)

“I thought it would make a good show,” Whedon said. “I thought, I'll make a show about high school that's a horror movie just as my high school was, and that's »

Viola Davis has always been candid when it comes to her upbringing, but the Oscar nominee and Emmy winner opened up even more to host James Lipton when she stopped by Inside the Actors Studio. Davis, whose performance in Fences is generating a ton of buzz, revealed she and sister Dolores used to play a game of "tea party" when things were rough around the house. "I grew up with extreme violence in the family, my father was an alcoholic," Davis said in the episode airing Thursday, Jan. 5 on Bravo. But this wasn't just a normal tea party Dolores and Viola would play, no, the two took on personalities of rich women, Jagee amd Jaja (taking a step at spelling here) from Beverly Hills.
