Fxx targets special Emmy Fyc campaign for Kaitlin Olson

13 June 2014 5:27 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

When sizing up the Emmy justice overdue to a star of "Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia," the New Yorker recently asked, "Why hasn't the amazing Kaitlin Olson – who gives one of TV's most radical down-in-the-dirt slapstick performances – been nominated for Best Actress?" -Break- That's what FX and Fxx networks have been wondering for a long time, too, although targeting the race for Best Supporting Comedy Actress, which is where Olson actually competes. But throughout the show's nine years on the tube, it's never received Emmy love, probably due to its audience demo. Average age of viewers is 28. Average age of Emmy voters is, well, a year or two south of Methuselah. However, Olson seems to have connected with audiences of all ages and become a break-out star.

Angus MacLane Co-Directing Finding Dory With Andrew Stanton

11 June 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Cars 2 fizzled and Monsters University didn’t really offer much to Monsters Inc. fans, Pixar has proven with Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3 that it understands how to make great sequels. So we’re holding out hope for Finding Dory, a sequel to Oscar winner Finding Nemo, especially because the first film’s director Andrew Stanton is back on board. Unfortunately, we won’t get to see it until 2016 because of The Good Dinosaur getting delayed and moved to Dory‘s spot, but at least we’ve got some interesting news about the film to tide us over.

While tweeting about an amusing Lego creation, Stanton let slip that Pixar veteran Angus MacLane is co-directing Finding Dory with him:

From my co-director’s clever Lego “couch” series: “@AngusMacLane: Tony Stark having a drink on a couch, in Lego. http://t.co/uw6oyALe36”

Emmy Preview: Category-Shifting Is the Big Story In This Year’s Race

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

This Emmy season, there’s going to be more of everything: more campaigning, more events and more media coverage. The reason: more worthy contenders. And that explains another increase: more jockeying.

The frenzy kicked off when HBO announced that “True Detective” is competing as a drama, not a miniseries, the first in a flood of category-shifting. “Orange Is the New Black” and “Shameless” were defined as comedies. “Treme,” formerly a drama series, moved to mini. Uzo Aduba (Crazy Eyes in “Orange Is the New Black”), Dan Bucatinsky (“Scandal”) and Ray Romano (“Parenthood”) are considered guest stars in their respective series, even though all three appear frequently. (As with all things, the Academy of TV Arts & Sciences has final say.)

The reason for all this jockeying is sometimes logical, and sometimes a matter of smart strategizing, in a year when there is an overabundance of worthwhile contenders.

Kaitlin Olson ('It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia'): 'Look, I'll take the Emmy, okay?' (Exclusive Video)

2 May 2014 3:05 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"Look, I'll take the Emmy, okay? I'm not saying I won't take the Emmy. I will take it and I want it," joked perennially snubbed Kaitlin Olson ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") during her webchat with Gold Derby. Olson laughed off her show's poor track record at the Emmys by winking that she would rather see her favorite team, the Oregon Ducks, win the National Championship than win a trophy for playing Sweet Dee. -Break- Join the hilarious 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' discussion going on right now in Gold Derby’s notorious message boards She then whispered, "That's not what I mean though, I want the Emmy." Perhaps if Emmy voters actually sat down to watch "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," they'd see that it's not quite the low-brow, simple show they had in mind all these years. "I've always said that the main reason..."' »
