Carrie Preston Wants to Bring Elsbeth Tascioni to The Good Wife Spinoff...Are You Listening, CBS?

23 August 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Carrie Preston is ready to bring The Good Wife's Elsbeth Tascioni back to life…so what's the hold up? Preston, who won an Emmy for the role in 2013 and is up for another for her work in The Good Wife's final season, became a fan-favorite as the eccentric lawyer. In fact, she was such a favorite that when talk of a Good Wife spinoff first surfaced many expected it to involve her wacky redheaded attorney. The Good Wife is getting a spinoff focused on Christine Baranski's Diane Lockhart and Cush Jumbo's Lucca Quinn…now where's Elsbeth? "Well, you know as actors these things, sadly, are not in our hands to decide," Preston told E! News' Erin Lim at the Television »

Why the Emmys Should Crown ‘The Americans,’ Not ‘Game of Thrones’: IndieWire’s Emmy Endorsements (Drama)

16 August 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Drama Series

Nominees:

The Americans

Better Call Saul

Downton Abbey

Game of Thrones

Homeland

House of Cards

Mr. Robot

IndieWire’s Vote: “The Americans

We’re obviously big fans of a lot of these shows. “Better Call Saul,” “Mr. Robot” and even “House of Cards” are deserving nominees, and there’s no shame in voting for any one of them. But come on: “The Americans” getting an Emmy nod for Outstanding Drama Series is like the Chicago Cubs reaching the World Series. If they made it this far — finally — they better freaking win. “The Americans” has been the best drama on cable for four years. An intricate spy thriller side-by-side with an equally compelling family drama, Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields have crafted a series as appealing as it is relevant. When it comes to FX’s best show (which is saying something), it’s more than just “you should »

The Last Ship Recap: Sneak Attacks

14 August 2016 7:35 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This week on TNT’s The Last Ship, both the Nathan James and the White House were targeted by traitors. Who was behind the double-cross, and why?

Racing against time to track down Peng’s arsenal of anti-cure payloads, the Nathan James was led to the island of Paraiso, a long-abandoned military base. There, they were met by… a jaunty fellow in tennis whites. The local insisted that all was idyllic on the isle, that Peng leaves them be, while their meager sewing factory manufactures jeans and what not. But nothing smells quite right in “Paradise, »

Emmy Voters Play Politics With Guest Noms for ‘Veep,’ ‘House of Cards’ Actors

4 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Emmy voters are playing right into the election year by pointing a spotlight on strong guest performances in drama, comedy, and satirical series with political themes. Among the 24 Emmy-nominated guest roles, nine have a direct political tie-in.

It raises the question: Who’s winning in the battle of most outrageous storylines — the fictional or the factual politicians?

In many ways, TV seems like it’s trying to keep up with real life: Be it “Veep” politico Selina Meyer’s determined, misguided attempt to navigate Washington, “House of Cards” power couple Frank and Claire Underwood’s power-hungry mission to manipulate and take down anyone who stands in their way, or “Saturday Night Live’s” vision of a presidential candidate seeking counsel from her former self.

While Hillary Clinton was scrutinized for using a private email server, Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) deployed an internal investigation into which staffer called her a profane name (the verdict: everyone). Donald Trump caused »

Primetime Emmy Awards Target Game Of Thrones

14 July 2016 12:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Emmy nods have hit the Internet, and there are a few surprises among these stellar examples of Primetime TV. Game of Thrones leads the pack with a whopping 23 nominations, which probably will not surprise anyone who has tuned in to the show this season. It’s certainly one of the better programs on TV right now, and this season has been particularly stellar.

More surprising – and, in some ways, more deserved – are several nods to Mr. Robot, including an Outstanding Drama and Lead Actor In A Drama for Rami Malek. Christian Slater gets nothing, despite his Golden Globe win, but I guess we can’t have everything. While Malek has some serious competition in his category, including Hollywood heavyweights Liev Schrieber and Kevin Spacey, here’s hoping that he takes home the prize. He certainly deserves it.

While Game of Thrones dominates in many categories, there’s quite a »

Emmys 2016: The 31 Wildest Snubs & Surprises

14 July 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

 Snubs

Orange is the New Black

Not only was the (former) awards favorite from Netflix bumped out of the Outstanding Drama Series race (in favor of “The Americans,” which is important to remember during this mourning period), but even its back-to-back supporting actress winner — in comedy and drama — Uzo Aduba didn’t make the cut. “Orange” only snagged a nod for Outstanding Casting, which makes the exclusion of the cast members themselves all the more questionable.

The Good Wife

One of the more aggressive series in terms of campaigning these last few years, CBS’ beloved drama couldn’t break into the big categories for broadcast in 2016. It had the best shot of any offered by the big four as an overall series, but love was lost for the twice-nominated series. After all, it hasn’t been »

The Performer | Michael Emerson

The Show | Person of Interest

The Episode | “return 0” (June 21)

The Performance | A pair of selflesss, emotional moments — coupled with an episode-long heart-to-cpu with The Machine — set the stage for Michael Emerson to end his Poi run on the highest of notes.

Throughout the series’ final, eventful hour, the always engaging actor showed us “Harry” hanging on The Machine’s every word, as the two longtime cohorts reflected on their noble, forever dangerous journey and prepared to say goodbye. Emerson also got to share a couple of sweet scenes with real-life wife Carrie Preston, as Harold opened »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series

7 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Last year, Margo Martindale triumphed in this category with her turn on “The Americans,” a show that has been woefully underrepresented at the Emmys. While she could repeat this year, she will have to battle some fierce competitors in the form of previous winners.

Both Allison Janney [“Masters of Sex”] and Carrie Preston [“The Good Wife”] have won for their roles before. And several potential nominees are previous winners. Diana Rigg was previously nominated here for her work on “Game of Thrones”; she scored a win in 1997 for “Rebecca.” Ellen Burstyn [“House of Cards”] is an Emmy winner in this category for “Law & Order: Svu,” and has seven noms and two wins total. [Don’t forget Burstyn is beloved; she was famously nominated for her work in “Mrs. Harris,” which consisted of fewer than 20 seconds of screen time.]  Laurie Metcalf has three Emmys from “Roseanne,” but her work as the ex-wife of Louis C.K. in “Horace and Pete” is unlike anything we’ve seen her in before. Stockard Channing has won two Emmys, both in 2002, and could score a third for the final season of “The Good Wife. »

Was Castle Reveal Random? Did Flash Telegraph Death? Was Poi Sex Good for You? Ballsy Outlander? And More Qs!

20 May 2016 11:06 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Castle, Empire, Grey’s Anatomy and Legends of Tomorrow!

1 | As fun and Batgirl-y it was to see Hawaii Five-0‘s Abby motorcycle to Grover’s rescue, gun a-blazing, did we ever learn how she escaped Shioma’s gunman?

2 | Admit it, Outlander fans: Wasn’t Jamie’s gruesome, duel-ending strike on Black Jack Randall kinda satisfying?
