'Angels in America' Sweeps Emmys

20 September 2004 | IMDb News

It was a farewell to old friends -- and hello to some new ones -- at this year's Emmys, which were dominated overall by miniseries Angels in America. The HBO mega-event swept every major category it was nominated for, including all acting honors (for Al Pacino, Meryl Streep, Jeffrey Wright, and Mary-Louise Parker) as well as Best Miniseries, Directing, and Writing. In the Outstanding Comedy arena, two departing shows divvied up the Emmys in the acting categories, as Frasier won awards for Kelsey Grammer and David Hyde-Pierce, while Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon (both first-time winners) took home honors for Sex and the City. It was newbie Arrested Development, though, that walked away with the Best Comedy Series trophy, as well as Writing and Directing Emmys. Over on the dramatic side of things, The Sopranos finally took home its first Outstanding Dramatic Series award, as well as supporting nods for Michael Imperioli and Drea DeMatteo and Outstanding Writing, but perennial winners James Gandolfini and Edie Falco were upset by James Spader for his first season on The Practice and Emmy fave Allison Janney for The West Wing; new HBO series Deadwood grabbed Dramatic Directing honors. Other winners included The Amazing Race 4 for Outstanding Reality Competition Program, The Daily Show for Variety, Music, or Comedy Series, and Something the Lord Made for Made-For-TV Movie. --Prepared by IMDb staff

Nixon Leaves Red Hair Behind

16 August 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sex And The City actress Cynthia Nixon is planning to return to her natural blonde hair color - six years after dying her mane red for the show. Nixon, who played cynical lawyer Miranda Hobbes in the defunct TV comedy, is happy to be going back to her roots, because her seven-year-old daughter is blonde and wants to share the same hair color as her mother. Nixon says, "I've been a redhead for the entire time on Sex And The City, so I've got use to it by now. It's taken a lot to maintain the color because my roots are really light, so it'll be easier to manager when I stop dying my hair. My seven-year-old daughter has blonde hair and is thrilled that I'll finally have the same color hair as her. She once made me buy her a red wig just so she could look like me." As for other areas of her appearance, Nixon adds, "I'm looking forward to adapting my clothes and make-up to suit my new hair color as well. I've worn lots of green because it goes with red hair, so I'll be glad not to wear that color for while. Blondes can get away with a lot more." »

Cattrall: "SATC Film Was Scrapped Over Money"

26 July 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Former Sex And The City star Kim Cattrall has confessed she scrapped plans for a movie version of the TV show after a row over money. After the Emmy-winning show ended its six-year-run earlier this year, producers planned to reunite the four lead characters in a film spin-off. But plans were quickly cancelled amid rumors of a rift between Cattrall and co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis. Now Cattrall has admitted she blocked the film, because they weren't offered enough money. She says, "I wanted all of us to have a piece of something. We all worked for six years, 18 hours a day. It would be a shame to come back and not reward the actors who had so much to do with shaping the show." But she refuses to rule out future plans: "That's not to say a movie won't happen in the future." »

Kristin's Emmy Day Starts with a Ticket

16 July 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sex & The City star Kristin Davis didn't have a great start to her Emmy day yesterday - she picked up a parking ticket minutes after learning she was nominated. The actress and her ex-castmates Kim Cattrall, Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon were all nominated for the show but she had to wait to celebrate after a run-in with the police. She explains, "I got a ticket because my windows are dark on my car. It's a security problem - we have stalkers, we have paparazzi. I tried to explain to the nice gentleman who pulled me over that I was late... and I got nominated for an Emmy, and 'Couldn't I please go, ' and he said, 'No.'" »

Parker Fears Split from 'Sex' Co-Stars

18 March 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sarah Jessica Parker hopes to keep in touch with her Sex And The City co-stars now that filming on the hit TV show has finished - but admits their different lives might keep them apart. Parker, who played Carrie Bradshaw in the sassy comedy, wants to stay in contact with Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis but fears they'll head separate ways. She explains, "I wouldn't be surprised if we see each other and spend time together socially. But the truth is Kristin lives in Los Angeles. Cynthia has two children and I have a child and a husband - and there's a long list of friends and family who have basically not seen us for the past six years. So I suspect the first thing we're all going to do is try to get back in the good graces to those who had written us off." »

Nixon Takes Up the Education Funding Fight

11 March 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sex And The City star Cynthia Nixon appeared before New York state's Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver yesterday - to campaign for more funding in education. The flame-haired actress - who played lawyer Miranda Hobbes in the sassy series - hopes her high-profile involvement in the cause will improve the conditions for school children in the state. Her appearance in Albany was sponsored by the Alliance For Quality Education, who hope she will bring "sizzle and spice" to the issue. Chairman Steven Sanders says, "Celebrities come with a cachet and a personality. Does it in the final analysis make a real difference in terms of the outcome of the issue? I'm not sure it does." »

Producer Says There'll Be No 'Sex and the City' Movie

9 March 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

A movie version of hit show Sex And The City will never be made, according to producers. When the series, starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, came to an end last month, it was immediately reported that a big-screen version would be made. Reports soon followed that the film was jeopardized by an alleged feud between Cattrall and Parker. But the show's executive producer, Michael Patrick King, now declares, "Nothing we did in the series was altered to save something for the movie. This is exactly the way we wanted to end the series. We're proud of what we did." The HBO series will live on in syndication, which pleases Parker - even if most of the racy episodes are toned down for a broader audience. She says, "I am not sad about a larger audience. Part of me is happy that people who could not afford HBO will now have the opportunity to meet the four women whose love lives were chronicled on the show." »

Salary Demands Jeopardizes 'Sex and the City' Movie

8 March 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Huge salary demands made by Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall are threatening plans for a film version of the hit TV show Sex And The City. The actresses - who play Carrie Bradshaw and Samantha Jones respectively in the hit comedy - are both demanding a reported $14.4 million to reprise their famous roles for the silver screen - plus royalties. A senior source at the HBO cable network says, "They (Parker and Cattrall) are making demands we simply cannot meet. We do not have the budget of a Steven Spielberg film. The actresses were each offered $5.4 million and box office royalties on top, but they say it's not enough. If we can't reach an agreement, the film won't happen. It wouldn't be the same without two main stars." The other actresses who make up the fashionable Manhattan quartet - Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis - have both agreed terms with HBO. »

Parker Insists She's the One Holding Back on Movie Deal

1 March 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Sarah Jessica Parker has dismissed reports Kim Cattrall has refused to star in the anticipated Sex And The City movie - insisting she is the hesitant one. Throughout the hit comedy's six year history, there have been persistent reports Cattrall and Parker did not get along, with the alleged animosity being the cause of Cattrall's reluctance to sign up for the film. However, Parker insists co-stars Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon and Cattrall are all ready and willing to do the movie - and she has yet to agree a deal. She says, "The other women, to my knowledge, all have deals to make a movie and I'm still figuring that out with my bosses." She adds, "If we do this movie I think it will be right on the heels of where we left off." The raunchy comedy came to an end last Sunday. »

Cattrall and Parker Battles Affect 'Sex' Movie

25 February 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The prospect of a Sex And The City movie has been thrown into jeopardy because Kim Cattrall does not want to make it. Throughout the hit comedy's six year history, there have been reports Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker did not get on, and this animosity is reportedly the cause of her reluctance to sign up for the film. One insider tells American website Page Six, "Kim Cattrall does not want to sign on. She feels she has been treated horribly by Sarah Jessica Parker for six years - so why would she want to revisit that for one moment? Two years ago, while filming in Atlantic City (New Jersey, America), Sarah Jessica rented a house for herself, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon. Kim was left out on her own." However, a spokesman for cable company HBO, who produced the show, maintains, "Kim stayed in a different house because she was married at the time, and her husband (Mark Levinson) was supposed to come down. I'm not telling you they have dinner five times a week and take vacations together, but there's a professionalism. They get the work done. They are pros." Parker produced the show and is expected to take a managing role in the movie version about four sexually active New York women. Parker has also enlisted the program's executive producer Michael Patrick King to join the film. The source adds, "Kim has told friends she will not allow Michael to direct the movie. Because then Sarah Jessica will hold all the cards." The HBO spokesman adds, "Far too much has been made about Sarah Jessica and Kim. If there was such animosity, there wouldn't be a movie. This has been a tremendous career experience for all of them. God willing, we'll get the right script and make the movie." The final episode of the hit comedy was aired in America on Sunday Night. »

Best actress winner Charlize Theron relished playing a dark and disturbing character -- something she said actresses don't get the chance to do that often. "I'm saddened by the fact there aren't a lot of conflicted female characters out there," the Monster star said. ... Things looked a bit familiar for Renee Zellweger backstage at the SAG Awards.

Parker Dreading 'Sex and the City' End

14 January 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sarah Jessica Parker has been crying over the end of her beloved TV show Sex And The City - despite agreeing it's time to bring the hit series to a conclusion. The 38-year-old star is sad about leaving co-stars Kristin Davis, Kim Cattrall and Cynthia Nixon after six years together playing four sassy New York women because she has built up a special bond with them all - and is now fearing flying to Paris over the next two weeks to film the final scenes for the sixth season finale. She says, "Carrie Bradshaw was never a 9-to-5 job. This show has changed my life personally and professionally, and I can't begin to know the great sadness that will envelop me when I leave these people. If I think too much about ending, I couldn't show up for work every day. So I can't allow myself even to ponder the great seismic shift. I have ambulances lined up for February!" Sarah decided on the show's demise last year, after nearly quitting two years earlier when pregnant with her son James. She adds, "Sex and the City is comfortable, lucrative, thrilling and extremely satisfying, but I know deep in my heart that this is the time to pull the plug. We have to do new things." The final episode is to air in America on cable channel HBO on February 22. »
