Netflix, Amazon Poised to Steal Cable and Broadcast’s Thunder at Emmys

17 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When it comes to TV awards, digital may be the new cable.

Internet-streaming services Netflix and Amazon are producing award-worthy original programming — and Hulu, Yahoo and AOL are also jumping into the game, looking to garner industry accolades for their content investments and the marketing lift they provide.

The digital insurgents haven’t fully crossed the divide yet, having been shut out of major Emmy wins so far. The highest-profile victories have been David Fincher’s directing win for “House of Cards” season one, and “Orange Is the New Black” co-star Uzo Aduba’s (pictured above) guest actress Emmy last year.

But the tide appears to be shifting. “Cards” star Kevin Spacey won the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award this year; “Oitnb” picked up two SAG wins; and Amazon Studios’ “Transparent” won a Globe for best comedy series, while star Jeffrey Tambor nabbed lead actor.

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Actress in a Comedy Series

17 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Even with Taylor Schilling potentially heading over to the drama side of things for "Orange is the New Black," this category is remarkably stacked. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is really the only sure thing for "Veep," with an onslaught of newcomers aiming to take out regular nominees Lena Dunham ("Girls"), Melissa McCarthy ("Mike & Molly"), Edie Falco ("Nurse Jackie") and Amy Poehler ("Parks and Recreation").

Five "Must-See" Movies for June 2015

19 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I hate to admit it, but it's true: I failed you guys last month. I don't say that because I ultimately recommended you check out a couple of stinkers in May's monthly movie preview (we'll get to that in a moment), but rather because, of the five movies I mentioned as "must-sees", I actually only saw two of them. I led last month's post with the caveat that there wasn't much of note coming out during May, but still, if I'm gonna recommend movies I should probably watch 'em too, and I vow to do so from now on. Unless I change my mind. Or run out of money. Or everyone else tells me they're bad and that I should run for the hills and avoid them forever. Point is, I'll try. Not to make excuses, but I did have a lot going on last month. I finished grad school, »

Sofia Coppola exits the live action The Little Mermaid movie due to “creative differences”

23 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It had been announced that Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation) was on sailing to direct Universal and Working Title’s adaptation of the fairy tale The Little Mermaid (not the Disney one), but now Deadline are reporting that the relationship has sunk.

According to the website, Coppola has left the project due to “creative differences”. There’s no word on who might replace her, but Joe Wright (Pan) was eyed to direct at one point.

The script for The Little Mermaid is currently being re-written by Caroline Thompson (Edward Scissorhands), which was previously drafted by Kelly Marcel (Fifty Shades of Grey). Abi Morgan (Brick Lane) had also done a pass on the script. The story, written by Hans Christian Anderson, follows a mermaid who gives up her life in the sea for a human prince on land and has been adapted several times over, the most famous of which being the 1989 Disney animated classic. »

1 June 2015 8:40 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Move over, Amy Poehler! There's a new Amy in Tina Fey's life. The 30 Rock creator and actress made a surprise appearance at the 74th Annual Peabody Awards Ceremony at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City Sunday, where she presented an award to Comedy Central's Inside Amy Schumer. Fey praised Amy Schumer for her provocative, hilarious, feminist-centric show, telling the crowd, "Many people will tell you that you can never ever joke about rape, but it is all about context and point of view, and Amy and the Inside Amy Schumer show's brilliant sketch about sexual abuse in the military as filtered through violent, combat videogames was inarguably funny and so, so rapey."

Julie Klausner, Billy Eichner, and Amy Poehler Had a Love-In at VultureFest

31 May 2015 6:12 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Executive producer Amy Poehler's imprimatur helped make Broad City a phenomenon, and now it looks like it might do the same for Hulu's upcoming Difficult People, a new comedy debuting in August and starring Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner. Klausner, Eichner, and Poehler came to the second annual Vulture Festival today for a screening of their new show, about a pair of struggling comedians behaving badly in New York, and for a talk with Vulture's Margaret Lyons, during which the trio could barely contain their admiration for one another (and also for Game of Thrones).Eichner on Poehler: “Julie and I were outliers in the comedy world. We were never the people getting called by SNL or The Daily Show; it took us a moment to get into the professional comedy industry, and it’s taken the support of people with vision and balls and good fucking taste, like Amy Poehler, »

New Clip for Pixar's 'Inside Out' Explores A Little Girl's Memories

29 May 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm starting to think Inside Out might indeed be the movie that puts Pixar back on my good side. Not that I matter to Pixar, but Pixar matters to me, the studio's films helped inform and define a large chunk of my childhood. Directed by Pete Docter, the film was received very well at Cannes, which is no real surprise considering Docter directed both Up and Monsters, Inc., both of which are among my favorites of the animation studio's films. But that's neither here nor there. We can all make that determination ourselves once the film hits theaters June 19, but until then we have a new clfrom the film, this one centered on Joy (voiced by Amy Poehler) as she takes us through a few of the memories floating through a little girl's brain. You can check out the clip below. Inside Out takes place inside the mind of Riley, »

Could Inside be Pixar’s best movie?

Check out IndieWire’s collection of critics’ reviews from Cannes 2015 Here.
