The Emmys are still important, just not as a barometer of quality

17 July 2015 6:31 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The nominations for the 67th annual Primetime Emmys were announced recently, and like all nominations in recent memory, it’s just as notable for what was snubbed as for what did end up nominated. With this becoming an increasing trend, many have taken to questioning the importance of the Emmys, and whether they’re relevant in this day and age, especially as shows that can be categorised as hour-long comedies or half-hour dramas are just the latest in a long line of things that have left the Academy scrambling. The Emmys are still relevant, however, but not in the way that it’s usually presented. Rather, the Emmys work best in the current television landscape as a way to point budding television fans in the right direction of where to begin exploring.

Consider, for example, the case of the modern-day individual who discovers they have a deeper appreciation for television than any of their peers. »

Ethan Hawke & Asa Butterfield Star in 'Ten Thousand Saints' Trailer

29 June 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I'm offering you Manhattan champ, don't play hard to get." Screen Media has debuted an official trailer for Ten Thousand Saints, from writers/directors Shari Springer Berman & Robert Pulcini (of American Splendor, The Nanny Diaries, Girl Most Likely), starring Ethan Hawke and Asa Butterfield. Hawke plays an estranged father who suddenly "kidnaps" his emo-punk son and takes him to New York City, where he experiences a whole coming-of-age on the streets of Manhattan with new friends. The film is set in the 80's around the punk rock scene and it seems to have a killer soundtrack, of which many of the reviews quoted rave about. Hailee Steinfeld also stars along with Emile Hirsch and Emily Mortimer. They give away a lot (too much) in this trailer, but it actually looks pretty good. "Have you ever heard of punk?"

Ten Thousand Saints Trailer: Asa Butterfield Goes Punk in 80s-Set Drama

29 June 2015 9:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Screen Media has released the first trailer for American Splendor writers/directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini’s coming-of-age drama Ten Thousand Saints. Set in 1988, during the transitional period in New York City when the yuppies started buying up all the “bad” neighborhoods and transforming them into upscale real estate, the film stars Asa Butterfield as an unhappy, bored teenager from Vermont who—after an interaction with a girl—decides to move to New York City, closer to his burnout father (Ethan Hawke). He subsequently develops a closer relationship with said girl (played by Hailee Steinfeld), starts hanging around a straight edge band, and attempts to find himself. I caught the movie at Sundance earlier this year (click here for my review), and while Butterfield’s character is wholly uninteresting, the film’s saving grace is Ethan Hawke. The guy instantly makes any movie he’s in at least 30% better, »

Review: The Newsroom The Complete Third Season

15 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Aaron Sorkin is an exceptionally talent writer who brings a playwright’s sensibilities to television which means his characters talk. A lot. But unlike so many prime time series, his characters actually have something to say. It’s a shame more people don’t want to hear whatever it is being discussed because Sorkin series tend not to last very long.

There were two seasons of Sports Night, four Sorkin-produced episodes of The West Wing and a single uneven season of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. For his self-proclaimed final act in television, Sorkin gave us three ever-shortened seasons of The Newsroom. This last ran on HBO and other than using a handful of words, could have easily aired on the major networks. After all, Sorkin didn’t pander with nudity or excessive violence.

The series’ conceit was that we were watching the fall and rise of network anchor »

Dolly Wells on her father, John: ‘Why didn’t he tell me? I’d like to tap on his grave and ask’

31 May 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

As season two of the sitcom Doll & Em begins, Dolly Wells talks about her best friend on and off screen, Emily Mortimer, and her tangled relationship with her father, the satirist John Wells

The writer and actor Dolly Wells is speaking earnestly about parenting – how she admires non-parents, how her children (Elsie, 13, and Ezra, 10) are her most acute critics – while we sit in a Brooklyn restaurant near her home. “I had expected to have children quite young,” she is saying.

Our intense interview – which has included the 43-year-old Londoner talking for the first time about discovering, in her late teens, that her stepfather, the satirist and actor John Wells, was actually her biological father – has been accompanied throughout by a relentless battery of 80s power ballads. We are currently immersed in Foreigner at their most plaintive:
