‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Poster and Teasers: We Are All Freaks

28 August 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

American Horror Story: Coven went off the rails somewhat, but the great thing about Ryan Murphy‘s FX anthology horror series is that each season is a fresh start. The next season, American Horror Story: Freak Show, will see many of the same cast and crew heading to 1950s Florida, where a “dark entity” emerges. While […]

What Can We Learn From the First 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Cast Poster?

28 August 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

"It's darker than Coven; it feels very unique [...] It feels like a Douglas Sirk movie; it's very 1952 presentational and then the horror is an unexpected jab. As opposed to last year, which was crazy camera work and comedy. This year feels different. The special-ability cast that we have is amazing and I feel so thrilled because for so many of them, it was their dream to be actors and they didn't have any opportunities. There's a great community. They feel part of something perhaps for the first time in their life and that's an amazing thing that I was really emotional about when I was directing them." - American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy »

New 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Teaser Debuts, Alongside First Full Look at the Cast (Photo & Video)

28 August 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It seems that with each passing day we're given some new morsel of information, or maybe a visual or two, pertaining to this upcoming season of "American Horror Story" (this one with the truly blood-curdling subtitle of "Freak Show"). When the series isn't busy winning Emmys (congrats Jessica!), it's engaged in the tease, getting us prepared for a new season that takes place in a community in Florida known for its rather freaky inhabitants. Today we have a new teaser for the season, plus the first image of the entire cast in full regalia.

The photo comes courtesy of the Hollywood Reporter, but is damnably low-resolution, so a lot of what we're describing is educated guesswork. But in the photo you can see Sarah Paulson as a two-headed woman, Michael Chiklis as a strongman, Kathy Bates as a bearded woman, Angela Bassett as a woman with three-breasts (seriously! Look at »

Aaron Paul’s Wife on the Emmys Shoutout That Crashed Her Charity’s Website

26 August 2014 4:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Emmys proved a big night not just for the winners, but for the causes they support as well.

Winning his third Emmy for his role as Jesse Pinkman in “Breaking Bad,” Aaron Paul took the opportunity to thank his wife Lauren Parsekian, and made special note of the work she has done with the Kind Campaign, an anti-bullying program that she founded in 2009 with friend Molly Thompson.

“…And to my wife, my God, thank you for marrying me,” Paul said. “Thank you for dedicating your life to spread kindness across the world. We all appreciate it. If you guys don’t know what she does, look up ‘Kind Campaign.’ Do yourself and your children a favor: Kind Campaign.”

Paul’s heartfelt shout out generated so much buzz that the campaign’s website crashed almost immediately after the actor named it just after 7 p.m. Pt, and stayed down until somewhere between 5 and 6 a. »

Billy Eichner talks the making of his Emmys segment

26 August 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

One of the standout moments from this year’s Emmys was undeniably the taped segment in which comedian Billy Eichner and host Seth Meyers ran around the streets of New York quizzing (or simply yelling at) people about the awards. And it wouldn’t have happened if Eichner had not decided to send a “ballsy” (his word) email to Meyers’ producer, Mike Shoemaker.But thanks to Eichner’s initiative, the evening had a refreshing dose of absurdity. In the segment, which mimicked the structure of the recurring games on Eichner’s Billy on the Street, Eichner called out the Academy’s snubbing of Tatiana Maslany, »

Did homophobia crush 'The Normal Heart' at the Emmys?

Did ''The Normal Heart'' practically get shut out at the Emmys by the same anti-gay fears that hurt  ''Brokeback Mountain" at the Oscars?

In June, it won Best TV Movie at the Critics' Choice Awards, where Matt Bomer also won Best Supporting Actor in a Movie or Miniseries. At, ''The Normal Heart'' was the overwhelming favorite to win Best TV Movie (14 out of 14 Experts), Supporting Actor (for Bomer, 14 out of 14), Directing (for Murphy, 11 out of 14) and Screenplay (for Larry Kramer, 10 out of 14). -Break- See complete list of Emmy winners and nominations Instead, ''The Normal Heart'' watched one Emmy nomination after another crash and burn, losing three of its bids to ''Sherlock: The Last Vow'': Bomer lost to Martin F. »

True Blood's Mercy Killing

Here's Adam Armstrong and me on the series finale of True Blood. My comments after Adam's -Nathaniel

One thing you should know about me: I am a pro-rationalizer. I don’t enjoy disliking things, especially when it comes to movies and TV shows. So many people, so much hard work, so on and so forth. Take for example, this one time, on the way home from seeing the third Paranormal Activity movie. I was so invested in the series I went to every midnight showing. I loved them. And then that movie played its final 20 mins, and it was fucking garbage. It was the American Horror Story: Coven of movies before Coven was even around.* Seriously, was Ryan Murphy a creative consultant for the ending of that movie? But, still, on that ride home, ridden with disappointment and rage, I clung to one aspect of the movie I liked »

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 | | 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. »
