Why Do Certain Actors on Ensemble Shows Stand Out for Emmy Nominations?

30 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Robert Altman would be proud. His signature ensemble filmmaking style has become the norm rather than the exception in dramatic series. However magnetic the leads, they’re invariably surrounded by distinctive character players who get multiple chances to shine across a typical season.

Which creates an annual knotty problem for Emmy voters as they consider the supporting categories. Some turns can be singled out as guest actor or actress — late-1980s additions conveniently allowing the academy to spread a little more wealth around. But nominators are still faced with tapping only a select few per skein. Even more mysteriously, they’re wont to proffer a nod one year, only to deny one the next for the very same role. For example, the first year “Modern Family” was eligible, everyone in the cast but Ed O’Neill received a nom. For the next three years, the entire ensemble was recognized. But this year, »

10 Facts About 'Godzilla 2,' 'Crimson Peak,' 'Skull Island,' and More, Straight From Comic-Con 2014

26 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Legendary Pictures is a production company that is fast becoming a safe haven for big movies anchored by visionary filmmakers. This is the studio responsible for "300," "Pacific Rim," and a whole bunch of other super awesome projects (including the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy), and has cultivated a reputation of really bringing it to Comic-Con and the fabled, cavernous Hall H. This year was no different, with Legendary (now partnered with studio Universal) rolling out a veritable laundry list of really impressive projects that the audience ate up affectionately.

The panel was long and a little overwhelming, so we thought we'd break it down into a handy list of things that we learned during the panel. This will cover the gamut -- from Hall H to you!

Comic-Con TV Pilot Review/Recap: Constantine

24 July 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

I am not, in general, a television enthusiast. I watch movies and the occasional series on DVD, but I never watch cable or TiVo live events or sit down during dinner in front of a network TV show. It’s just not on my radar.

I am, however, a Hellblazer enthusiast, as well as a Neil Marshall enthusiast and horror enthusiast in general. I was initially wary about NBC’s Constantine, especially after I heard they weren’t letting him smoke onscreen. Weak, I thought. Smoking is central to Constantine’s character.

But in Ballroom 20 on Wednesday night, the sneak preview pilot slaughtered my expectations. It did a lot of slaughtering, in fact; I had to keep reminding myself that this was going to be network TV because of all the possessions and blood-painting and heart-piercing going on. And although John doesn’t exactly light up, he makes frequent and »

We Now Begin Our Descent: Ketai’s Debut a Minor Effort

Arriving decently dressed but in poor taste is writer/producer Ben Ketai’s directorial debut, Beneath, sharing its bland title with Larry Fessenden’s most recent indie horror film. This genre exploitation effort, which may eventually make a great double bill with Patricia Riggen’s forthcoming reenactment of the plight of the 33 Chilean miners from the 2010 Copiapo mining accident, often feels like a cheap knockoff of Neil Marshall’s The Descent, though Ketai’s adherence to the poker faced formula of And Then There Were None should satisfy those appreciative of commitment to ambience, no matter how generic the end product.

Samantha (Kelly Noonan) is an environmental lawyer who returns to her home town to celebrate her father George’s (Jeff Fahey) last day on the job due to declining health. Recording the celebratory efforts by interviewing several co-workers, »

16 July 2014 12:59 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

From executive producer David S. Goyer and director Neil Marshall, Constantine is based on the wildly popular comic book series Hellblazer from DC ComicsJohn Constantine (Matt Ryan) is a seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult, armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wicked wit, but his soul is already damned to hell. While at the NBC portion of the TCA Press Tour, David S. Goyer talked about when he was first introduced to Constantine in the comics, what he loved about the character, why they decided to call the series Constantine instead of Hellblazer, how they saw over 500 people for the role of John Constantine, the comic book storyline they were inspired by for the start of the show, how they’ll handle things like the smoking and his bisexuality, the creative input they get from Geoff Johns and DC Entertainment, introducing other »

Game Of Thrones Season 5 Directors Announced

16 July 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I don’t think anyone would refute the point that even the most established and dramatically formidable of TV shows is highly dependent on the skills of its directors. We’ve seen how talented helmers can elevate even lesser episodes of programs, from Rian Johnson’s work on AMC’s Breaking Bad to Patty Jenkins’ absorbing atmosphere-building on the same channel’s The Killing. And HBO’s Game of Thrones, which has now received two Emmy nominations for Outstanding Directing (for Tim Van Patten’s series premiere and Neil Marshall’s epic season 4 episode “The Watchers on the Wall”), with its sweeping scale and battle sequences, is more dependent on exceptional direction than most.

That’s why I’m happy to report that the recently revealed roster of directors that the HBO high fantasy hit has lined up for its upcoming fifth season looks as terrific as ever. There are five directors, »

Five Directors Chosen for Season 5 of HBO’s Game of Thrones

16 July 2014 5:03 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The season four finale of Game of Thrones left all of the main characters in a very different place to where we found them at the beginning of that ten episode run. It seems fitting then that next year’s batch of directors will almost all be completely new to the small screen adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s novels.

However, this has meant that there are some notable absences, and among them are Alex Graves (who directed a total of four episodes this year), Alan Taylor (who bowed out of season four because of Thor: The Dark World and now because of the new Terminator movie), Neil Marshall (who was nominated for an Emmy last week for “The Watchers on The Wall”), and showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss, who previously directed an episode each.

One familiar face to the next season of Game of Thrones though is David Nutter, »

Game Of Thrones season 5 directors announced

16 July 2014 12:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

4 newcomers to Game Of Thrones will be directing a brace of episodes each for season 5...

News

A number of changes are afoot in terms of the team going behind the camera for Game Of Thrones season five. Notably, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (who directed season three's Walk Of Punishment and season four's Two Swords) won't have directors' credits on any of the season five episodes.

We already knew that stalwart GoT director Alex Graves was taking a season-long break and planning to return for the sixth run, leaving a sizeable gap in the roster, and it's now been confirmed that regulars Michelle Maclaren and Alik Sakharov will also be joining him in their absence for season five (Maclaren is busy with Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul alongside directing stints on HBO's The Leftovers, while Sakharov is working on pirate drama Black Sails).

'Game of Thrones' Season 5 Adds Keisha Castle-Hughes

15 July 2014 4:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in June, just after Season 4 of Game of Thrones came to an end, series creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff hinted that several new characters will be popping up in Season 5. While the show normally brings on a slew of fresh faces every year, we haven't had any clue who might be showing up this season, until today, when a new, unconfirmed report revealed that Keisha Castle-Hughes has signed on to play one of the Sand Snakes.

For those unfamiliar with the George R.R. Martin novels, the Sand Snakes are the eight daughters of Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal). New Zealand Herald reports that the 24-year-old actress could be playing Nymeria Sand, described as a beautiful mixed-race woman who is both emotional and strong. The show is expected to only use three of these Sand Snakes, Nymeria, Obara Sand, the eldest, and Tyene Sand, the youngest.

Game Of Thrones Season 5 Directors Announced; Neil Marshall and Alex Graves Not Among Them

15 July 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Writing this article sort of bums me out because I’m reminded that there are another nine months or so before Game of Thrones Season 5 premieres.  That being said, the gears on this show run year-round and the directing staff seems to have been firmed up.  And it appears that, in addition to a certain character many people were expecting to see at the end of Season 4, a few of the directors of your favorite episodes won’t be coming back for Season 5. For instance, Neil Marshall (who handles a lot of the big battle episodes) is skipping this season.  So is Alex Graves. Even showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are staying behind their laptops (and away from the cameras) next year.  Hit the jump for more on the Game of Thrones Season 5 directors list. As Entertainment Weekly points out, David Nutter is the only returning veteran of the show. »
