2014 Emmy Award Winners Dominated by 'Breaking Bad'

26 August 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night the 2014 Emmy Award winners were announced with "Breaking Bad" taking home top honors with five wings including Outstanding Drama Series, followed by "Modern Family" with three wins including Outstanding Comedy Series. FX programs "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo" each took home two awards including an Outstanding Miniseries win for "Fargo". Meanwhile, new shows such as "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley" went home empty handed and for all the fanfare it received in its first season, including 12 Emmy nominations, "True Detective" only took home one win, that being for director Cary Joji Fukunaga". Personally, I don't give a lick about the Emmys, it's right there with the Grammys in terms of worthless awards shows for me. It's a show wherein people must nominate themselves and while most award shows are no better, this one is down there near the bottom for me. So, with that said, »

Breaking Bad Tops True Detective at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

26 August 2014 2:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Breaking Bad’s amazing final season always meant that it was a likely winner come awards season. However, the debut of the critically acclaimed True Detective earlier this year did leave many wondering whether it might rob the end to Walter White’s story of one final sweep of prizes at last night’s Emmy Awards.

As it turns out, Breaking Bad would end up being rewarded for those amazing final episodes, though True Detective did earn a very well deserved award for director Cary Joji Fukunaga (who helmed all eight instalments).

The UK was represented by Sherlock, and that too did exceptionally well, walking away with Emmys for Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and writer Steven Moffat. Looking at the results, it’s hard to imagine anyone being too upset with the results, though many Game of Thrones fans won’t be happy to see that it was again snubbed. »

Women Few and Far Between in Emmy’s Writing and Directing Races

10 July 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Emmy nominations for writing and directing are usually a bellwether of where the industry insiders see the sizzle in the small screen. The scribe and helming categories are less of a popularity contest than the comedy and drama series races.

So it was with some dismay that after checking the list a couple of times, I noticed the paucity of female nominees in these categories. No femmes in the drama series directing race, and in drama writing, only Moira Walley-Beckett made the cut for the “Ozymandias” episode of “Breaking Bad.”

The picture is only a little brighter in comedy. Liz Friedman and Jenji Kohan are nommed for writing the pilot seg of “Orange is the New Black.” On the helming side, Gail Mancuso landed her third consecutive nom (she won last year) for “Modern Family,” for the “Vegas” episode. And Jodie Foster was recognized for the “Lesbian Request Denied” episode of “Oitnb. »

‘Tammy’s’ Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone Build a Comedy Empire One Raunchy Joke at a Time

24 June 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Melissa McCarthy has emerged as one of Hollywood’s biggest movie stars. But her offscreen lifestyle suggests otherwise.

She still resides in a small three-bedroom house in Los Angeles suburb Toluca Lake with her husband, Ben Falcone.

Their two young daughters share a room, and her Mac computer is packed in the closet.

“We’re in the tiniest bedroom on Earth,” McCarthy confesses. On the morning of the 2012 Oscars, when she was getting dolled up for her big evening as a supporting actress nominee for her breakout role as the loudmouth sidekick in “Bridesmaids,” she didn’t have any space in the house to get dressed. “I had my stylist come to my garage,” McCarthy says. “My friends are like, ‘Get it together!’”

(Danielle Levitt for Variety)

McCarthy recounts this story on a recent evening in Budapest over a long dinner of veggie burgers, cucumber salad and beer. Her husband of nine years, »

Jennifer Aniston's comedy Mean Moms release date delayed

9 May 2014 7:21 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jennifer Aniston's new comedy Mean Moms has been delayed for release.

The Warner Bros and New Line co-production was due to hit cinemas on May 8, 2015, but the studio has confirmed that this date will now be pushed back (via The Wrap).

A new release date has yet to be decided, but New Line announced that they will now release MGM's untitled Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara comedy - previously known as Don't Mess with Texas - on May 8, 2015 instead.

Mean Moms, directed by Beth McCarthy-Miller, tells the story of a mother of two who moves to the suburbs from a small town, and is soon confronted with the world of competitive parenting.

The film is described as being similar to 2004's Mean Girls, as both are adapted from Rosalind Wiseman's advice books for parents.

However, Mean Moms will not be a sequel to the Lindsay Lohan comedy. »

Jennifer Aniston’s ‘Mean Moms’ Delayed, New Line Foregoes $6.7 Million Tax Credit

8 May 2014 5:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New Line has pulled its Jennifer Aniston comedy “Mean Moms” from the May 8, 2015 release date — and opted to forego a $6.7 million production tax credit from the state of California.

Instead, New Line announced Thursday that it had come on board to co-finance MGM’s untitled Reese Witherspoon-Sofia Vergara comedy and selected the May 8, 2015 release date.

Mean Moms” had been selected for the production tax credit, based on 20% of qualified expenditures of $33.6 million. But production would have had to have launched by July in order to receive the credit, so parent Warner Bros. has withdraw the project from the tax credit program.

The state film commission will conduct a lottery on June 2 to select the next round of projects that can qualify for the production tax credit program, which receives $100 million annually. Demand far exceeds supply with less than 10% of the 380 applicants receiving the credit last year.

Jennifer Aniston Comedy ‘Mean Moms’ Release Delayed by Warner Bros.

8 May 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Warner Bros. has pushed the Jennifer Aniston comedy “Mean Moms” off its May 8, 2015 release date, the studio said Thursday. No new opening date has been set for the New Line comedy, which is directed by Beth McCarthy-Miller. The adult-themed “Mean Moms” is in the spirit of the 2004 comedy “Mean Girls,” and while it is not a sequel in any way, both projects are based on advice books by Rosalind Wiseman. Instead, Warner Bros. has slotted the Reese Witherspoon-Sofia Vergara buddy comedy once known as “Don't Mess With Texas” on that Mother's Day weekend. On Thursday, the studio announced. »

Will ‘Marry Me’ Finally Give Casey Wilson and David Caspe the Happy Ending They Deserve?

7 May 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Years from now, sitcom fans will still be stuck mourning the end of the cut-off-in-its-prime Happy Endings, the ABC series that ran for three glorious and brief (but not gloriously brief) seasons, the brainchild of creator David Caspe, a revolving door of solid directors (including Fred Savage, the Russo brothers and Beth McCarthy-Miller, among many others), and a seriously game cast. The series may have centered on a standard-sounding premise — a group of six friends live and love in Chicago, kicking off after one of them leaves another one at the altar on their wedding day (sort of like if Barry was part of the core cast of Friends) — but its outlandishly clever humor and believable beating heart set it apart. It was good. It was really good. And you didn’t watch it, because ABC cancelled it. But despite the loss of the show, many of its talents have journeyed elsewhere. Damon Wayans Jr. »

The Voice: Ricky and Will's knockouts - Who made it to the live shows?

16 March 2014 2:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

So, The Voice live shows are less than a week away. That probably means we should be whittling down some teams, doesn't it? Last night we found out who'd be on Team Kylie and Team Tom, so today it's all about Ricky and Will's acts. Who'd make it? Who wouldn't? Read on to find out...

Team Ricky

Ricky thinks he has the "strongest team" - which is just as well - and Will thinks he has something up his sleeve all the time "like a ninja". In his first meeting with his knockout team, Ricky congratulates them all and urges them to pick their songs carefully. It's clear that everyone is feeling 'quite nervous' and even Ricky confesses he's feeling terrified. So we should probably get going...

Jessica Steele - 'La La La'

Ricky stole Jessica from Will's team, and likes the personality she brings to songs. She's actually gone »

The Voice battles: Nathan vs Christina Marie - Who knows Ricky best?

1 March 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

We were convinced we'd found a way to predict the results of this weekend's Voice battles - by putting some of the duos head to head to test their knowledge of their mentors - but Team Tom and Team Will ended in a dead heat, and Team Kylie were separated by just a measly half point. In other words, we're not talking particularly convincing results. But hey, maybe Team Ricky will give us some clearer answers? We called up Nathan Amzi and Christina Marie, so read on to find out who knows more about Ricky - and then what they had to say about tonight's head to head...

Fighting Talk - we're going to test you on your knowledge of Ricky.

Nathan: "Okay! Yeah!"

Christina: "Oh my goodness, this is going to be so bad! Okay..."

Warner Bros. Schedules A Bevy Of Films, Including Inherent Vice, The Conjuring 2 And Entourage

25 February 2014 6:39 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Warner Bros. has already moved its buzziest project, the Zack Snyder-helmed, Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill-starring Batman vs. Superman, back to May of 2016, that doesn’t mean that the studio will be in any way resting on its laurels until then. Hot on the heels of scheduling The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and Focus for the early months of 2015, Warner Bros. has scheduled a huge amount of highly anticipated projects. We’ll take them on in chronological order.

The horror flick formerly known as Annabelle, a spinoff from The Conjuring, has been set for October 3 of this year. It’s going to face tough competition from David Fincher’s Gone Girl, though the huge returns from the first film in the franchise are probably giving New Line the utmost confidence that the John Leonetti-directed spinoff will perform well.
