The 2015 Golden Globe nominations were, as per usual, a mixed bag. For every inspired nod (congrats, Gina Rodriguez!) there was one that had be scratching the skin off my scalp (Downton Abbey over Homeland). So without further adieu, I give you the good, the bad and the downright ugly from this year’s list.
I’m Super-Ecstatic About:
Few mysteries perplex Hollywood like the endurance and the influence of the Golden Globes, yet year after year the less than 100 members of the secretive Hollywood Foreign Press Association dole out names and somewhere a phone rings, a text is sent and a heart glows a little brighter in the early La morning with awards-season self-confidence. Then there are those who are harshly left out in the cold — like broadcast comedy, Boardwalk Empire and American Sniper were today for the 72nd annual Globes, which will be handed out January 11 on NBC with perma-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
Here are a few of the snubs. I’m updating this list so anyone we missed?
The Walking Dead – Let’s be clear, the AMC series is the most popular show on television, both cable and broadcast. The blockbuster zombie apocalypse series has beaten the mighty Sunday Night Football again and again this fall, »

A week after getting the first trailer for The Americans season 3 and just two days after The American Film Institute dubbed the FX drama series one of the best TV programs of the year, we’ve got a brand new trailer to share. Whereas the promo titled “Polygraph” was more of a head trip-style teaser, this new piece is a full-blown trailer featuring loads of footage from the new season perfectly paired with The Police’s “Every Breath You Take.” Hit the jump to check out the new The Americans season 3 trailer for yourself. The show returns to FX on Wednesday, January 28th at 10pm. Via FX.

Life was complicated enough for Philip and Elizabeth Jennings, undercover Russian spies living normal suburban lives on "The Americans."
A new trailer is now available, featuring the first footage from the season. It's tense and intense - Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev is dead, throwing the two countries' relations into even greater turmoil. Then, there's the matter of Paige's recruitment. "If you tell her now, it'll all blow up," Philip warns.
"At least she'll know who she is," Elizabeth argues passionately.
The rest of the trailer gives us glimpses at Nina, presumably in custody in her home country; more outrageous wigs and disguises; and Elizabeth possibly getting nabbed by the FBI. And the whole thing is set »

Actor Matthew Rhys hoped to remember his lines, but when he met Princess Kate at a special lunch in New York City on Monday, he became a little lost for words. Rhys, who stars in The Americans, was one of nine British citizens who've made achievements in the cultural, fashion, business and tech worlds invited to meet Kate, 32, at an intimate lunch hosted by the British Consul General Danny Lopez and his wife, Susan, at their penthouse residence. But he confessed, "My mind went blank and I wondered what I would talk to her about, but she's very good at »

The FX drama series The Americans is one that started off strong in its first season and then continued to improve in Season 2, eventually becoming one of the best dramas on television. The 1980s-set show is technically a “spy series”, in which Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys play Soviet operatives who have been living deep undercover in American for years. In actuality, though, The Americans is a portrait of a marriage, and it uses the spy thriller genre as a conduit through which to explore what it means to be married and what it means to have a family. That’s not to say the spy aspect isn’t compelling (it very much is), and the very first The Americans Season 3 trailer is a wonderful blend of the show’s character-centric focus and spy thriller machinations. It also promises to follow-up on that shocker of an ending that concluded Season »

Dynamite! Keri Russell suited up in a steaming-hot leather one-piece to take the stage as a presenter at the Glamour 2014 Women of the Year Awards in New York City on Monday, Nov. 10. The Americans star, 38—who's rumored to be dating her costar, Matthew Rhys—stepped up to the podium in a skintight J. Mendel jumpsuit with a red-and-gold-striped bodice. Russell completed her ensemble by adding small bejeweled Jacob & Co. earrings and pointed-toe heels. The Felicity alum was on hand to award marine biologist Sylvia Earle with the [...] »

A “Pride and Prejudice” sequel/murder mystery? That alone should be a sufficient come-on to rouse English-lit majors and awaken “Masterpiece” viewers, but “Death Comes to Pemberley” — a two-part movie adapted from P.D. James’ novel — has the extra advantage of being perfectly cast and extremely entertaining, even for those who might need a Jane Austen refresher course. The whodunit, frankly, takes a backseat to simply luxuriating in the atmosphere, as Anna Maxwell Martin and “The Americans’” Matthew Rhys portray one of literature’s most famous couples, with Matthew Goode as Wickham, the amiable rogue who nearly came between them.
The story begins six years after the aristocratic Darcy (Rhys) swept the poor Elizabeth (Maxwell Martin) off her feet, and she has become the lady at his sprawling estate. Of course, the path to true love in these environs is always complicated, though that discomfort here falls to Darcy’s sister »

If there isn’t enough bloodshed in Pride and Prejudice for your taste, Death Comes to Pemberley (premiering this Sunday on Masterpiece on PBS) has murder, a hysterical Bennet (played by Doctor Who‘s Jenna Coleman) and Matthew Rhys (The Americans) as the dashing Mr. Darcy.
Adapted from P.D. James’ novel, the miniseries picks up after the events of the Jane Austen classic, when Pemberley is rocked by a whodunit. In TVLine’s exclusive first look, Lydia Bennet (Coleman) arrives at the estate, screaming bloody murder, and a slap is the only thing capable of calming her down. (Naturally, the excitable Mrs. »
According to Deadline, Academy Award nominee Frank Langella has joined the FX Cold War drama The Americans. He’s landed a recurring role as Gabriel, the former Kgb handler of Philip and Elizabeth Jennings (Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell, respectively).
Gabriel is forced to come out of retirement in the upcoming third season now that Claudia (Margo Martindale) has had a falling out with her two former spies.
Claudia will likely still factor into the series, though executive producer Joel Fields says that they “don’t have it in a script yet. Claudia is secretive and unpredictable!”
Fields and co-producer Joe Weisberg issued the following statement regarding Langella’s casting:
“We’ve been huge fans of Frank’s work for a long time, and it’s been such a pleasure getting to know Frank himself in the beginning stages of working together on the character of Gabriel. We look forward to a great season together, »
