Golden Globe Predictions 2017: Bold Picks in Every TV Category

Best Drama Series “The Crown” “Game of Thrones” “Mr. Robot” “This Is Us” “Westworld

Spoiler: “Stranger Things

There’s an outside chance a true long shot like the Audience Network’s “Kingdom” or Hulu’s “Chance” sneaks in here, but that’s because there’s an outside chance just about anything happens at the Golden Globes. Shows like “Game of Thrones,” “Westworld,” and even “Stranger Things” should ride a wave of online buzz and star power to the show, and NBC sure would love to see its hit new drama included in the Best Drama category. Last year’s winner certainly seems like a necessary inclusion, too, but far be it from us to say anything’s a lock.

Girls Final Season Trailer Puts Spotlight on Andrew Rannells' Elijah

22 November 2016 12:14 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Girls appears to be putting one of its main guys front and center in its farewell season.

The just-released trailer for the HBO comedy’s sixth and final season (debuting Sunday, Feb. 12) devotes a considerable amount of its 40-second running time to Andrew Rannells’ Elijah (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

Whether that will translate into more screen time for the Bff of Lena Dunham’s Hannah during the series’ 10-episode swan song remains to be seen.

11 of the Year’s Best TV Drama Ensembles

16 November 2016 8:00 AM, PST | | See recent Backstage news »

American Crime” (ABC)ABC and showrunner John Ridley one-upped themselves with the second 10-episode outing of this anthological miniseries. With much of the Season 1 ensemble returning—including standouts Timothy Hutton, Felicity Huffman, and Regina King, along with newcomer Lili Taylor, Season 2 explores racial and class tensions within an Indianapolis private school. When a working-class male student (Connor Jessup) accuses two championship basketball stars (Joey Pollari and Trevor Jackson) of sexual assault after photos of the alleged incident appear online, the school becomes a hotbed of administrative cover-ups and false accusations, and the battleground for one tenacious mother’s pursuit of the truth. “American Crime” succeeds in its sobering representation of a faulted world we know so well—one which the series reveals time and again cannot make us complacent. —Benjamin Lindsay “The Americans” (FX)FX’s Cold War espionage drama finally got the critical and audience reception it deserved this year, »

2016 Critics' Choice Awards: TV Nominations Revealed

14 November 2016 11:17 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

The 22nd Critics’ Choice Award is less than a month away. We may be enjoying the shiny new TV season, and while it may seem all fun and new, critics are all to ready to begin awarding some honors. The Broadcast Television Journalists Association have officially announced, via Entertainment Weekly, the TV nominees.

Leading the pack with six nominations is The People v. O.J. Simpson, not a huge surprise given its subject matter and solid execution. Also of note are the sheer number of nominations that HBO has under its belt this year — 22 in total. Noticeably absent are this year’s Netflix Marvel shows. Despite being great TV, it still seems like critics are unwilling to give comic book adaptations their fair shake come awards season. 

Oh well. Better luck next year, I suppose? The film nominations will be announced on December 1, 2016.

Louis C.K., ‘Americans’ Stars Get Silly But John Landgraf Gets Serious at Center for Communications Tribute

29 September 2016 2:47 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Quips about “television’s it boy” and “Peak Landgraf” were flying Thursday at the Center for Communications’ tribute to FX Networks’ chief John Landgraf.

But the honoree injected some gravitas to the affair by reminding the audience at the Pierre hotel about the transformative power of storytelling in human history. He offered a reading suggestion to the crowd – the 2011 tome “Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind” by Yuval Noah Harari – and he sounded a note of alarm about what he described as “tyrants” who rely on narratives woven of “reassuring falsehoods” to gain power.

Landgraf didn’t mention Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump by name, but he didn’t have to.

“Imagination is the foundational tool for our society. Like any powerful tool stories can be used for good and they can be used for ill,” he said. True artists craft stories in their search for “profound knowable and unknowable mysteries of the human experience.”

If Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys Don't Get These Photos Framed, We Will

27 September 2016 1:59 PM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys made a picture-perfect couple when they attended a performance of Tristan und Isolde at the Metropolitan Opera House in NYC on Monday. The pair coordinated outfits for the glitzy event, which marked the beginning of the Met's 2016-2017 season; Matthew looked dapper in a classic tux, while Keri was her usual stylish self in an asymmetrical black jumpsuit. It's been an especially busy few months for the lovebirds, who welcomed their son Sam in May and attended both the White House State Dinner and the Emmy Awards, where they were each nominated for their work on The Americans. It was announced earlier this year that the hit FX series would be ending after a sixth season in 2018. »

68th Primetime Emmy Award Winners List

19 September 2016 1:44 PM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

Last night was the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, where the television academy takes the time to recognize some of the greatest accomplishments in the industry for the past season. Not surprisingly, the show that came out on top this year was none other than Game of Thrones, a show that seemingly only gets stronger and stronger as time goes on (despite the absence of source material at this point).

This also marked the year that Game of Thrones surpassed Frasier for the record total of Emmys won during a show run. Frasier previously held the record with 37 wins, and with two seasons left, Game of Thrones has secured the title with 38 wins, a record it's sure to barrel over over the course of the next couple seasons.

Below is the list of nominees and winners for several major categories at this year's Emmys!

Rami Malek Reflects on 2016 Emmys Win for Mr. Robot: "Times Are Changing"

19 September 2016 6:35 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Rami Malek can't believe his good fortune. After one season of USA's Mr. Robot, the 35-year-old TV star received the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. During his acceptance speech, a Dior-clad Malek told the audience, "I'm honored to stand here and represent my family—and every single person who's helped me get this far." It was a significant moment in the evening, as Malek became the first minority actor in 18 years to win in that category. It wasn't an easy feat, of course. Malek faced stiff competition at the 2016 Emmys, where he went up against veteran actors Kyle Chandler (Bloodline), Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), Matthew Rhys (The Americans), Liev Schreiber »
