20 June 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

We’re at the end of our week-long Vulture TV Awards, honoring the best things television served up in the past year. We’ve already singled out Amy SchumerJulianna Margulies, and others actors for their solid performances, given props to director Cary Fukunaga for a particularly wonderful scene from True Detective, and welcomed David MilchAmy Sherman-Palladino, and other industry luminaries as guest judges. Here, True Blood and The Americans composer Nathan Barr discusses why the impressive job T Bone Burnett did with the True Detective score is his choice for Best Music. As told to Jennifer Vineyard.Winner: T Bone Burnett’s Score for True Detective I was all-in with True Detective hook, line, and sinker from the very beginning. The world, and the struggle between these two characters as they come at a problem from two different places emotionally, was really intriguing and really engaging for me. »

Vulture TV Awards: The Year’s Best Drama Is Hannibal

20 June 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

We’ve reached the end of our week-long Vulture TV Awards, honoring the best things television served up in the past year. We've singled out Amy SchumerJulianna Margulies, and others actors for their solid performances, given props to director Cary Fukunaga for a particularly wonderful scene from True Detective, and welcomed the likes of David Milch and Amy Sherman-Palladino as guest judges. And without further ado, Vulture TV critic Matt Zoller Seitz makes his pick for Best Drama. The nominees are: The AmericansThe Good WifeHannibalMad MenOrphan Black And the winner is ...Winner: Hannibal (Spoilers follow for season two.) It’s no longer surprising to come across a scripted drama that’s written, directed, shot, edited, and acted with great skill, but it is surprising to find one that takes the tonal and stylistic risks that Hannibal takes each week. Nothing on this Bryan Fuller drama is supposed to be taken at face value. »

We’re coming to the end of our week-long Vulture TV Awards, honoring the best things television served up in the past year. We singled out Amy SchumerJulianna Margulies, and others actors for their solid performances, gave props to director Cary Fukunaga for a particularly wonderful scene from True Detective, and welcomed the likes of David Milch and Amy Sherman-Palladino as guest judges. And now for the first of our two biggest awards: Best Comedy, as selected by Vulture TV critic Matt Zoller Seitz. The nominees are: Archer Bob’s Burgers Girls Louie Veep  And the winner is ... Winner: Bob’s Burgers Loren Bouchard’s great Fox comedy about a family-run burger joint snuck up on people. It’s much quieter than its Sunday-night time-slot companions, The Simpsons and Seth MacFarlane’s laff factory, but over the last few years it has come to feel like the heart and soul of the evening. »

We’re in the midst of our week-long Vulture TV Awards, honoring the best things television served up in the past year. We’ve already singled out Amy SchumerJulianna Margulies, and others actors for their solid performances, given props to director Cary Fukunaga for a particularly wonderful scene from True Detective, and welcomed David MilchAmy Sherman-Palladino, and other industry luminaries as guest judges. Here, Once Upon a Time showrunners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis discuss why Silicon Valley is their choice for Best New Show. As told to E. Alex Jung.Winner: Silicon Valley This is one of those shows where it feels like it hit the world fully formed, which is really unusual in first-year shows. Most first-year shows take a while to find their footing, figure out what they are, and find their voice. This show arrived fully formed. The writing is so smart and the characters are drawn so beautifully. »

Vulture TV Awards: This Year’s Most Disappointing Show Is How I Met Your Mother

20 June 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Up next: Most Disappointing Show by Vulture writer Margaret Lyons.Most Disappointing Show: How I Met Your Mother It's been more than two months since the finale of How I Met Your Mother aired, and yet the dismay and irritation has not worn off. After nine years, the mother died, and it turned out Ted was accidentally telling the story of how he fell in love with Robin — a kind of one-two punch of sad decisions that made the whole series feel like a cruel misdirection. »

Vulture TV Awards: The Year’s Best Dialogue Is on Sherlock

19 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

We’re in the midst of our week-long Vulture TV Awards, honoring the best things television had to offer in the past year. In addition to the awards selected by our staff writers, we also asked a few industry luminaries to weigh in on their favorites. David Milch wrote about TV villains, Kurt Sutter discussed a death on Boardwalk Empire that particularly affected him, and to present her pick in the Best Dialogue category, we now give the floor to Gilmore Girls and Bunheads creator Amy Sherman-Palladino.Winner: Sherlock I don’t believe in “the best” when it come to writing. Who the hell am I to judge what the “best” dialogue is? Awards were invented by cruel businessmen and fueled by insecure artists who are desperately looking for validation and that elusive hug from Mommy and — oh, wait! Sherlock! Uh ... okay, never mind that crap I just said. Sherlock has the best dialogue. »

Julie Klausner Presents the 2014 Vulture TV Awards

17 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

All week, we’ll be honoring the best in television from the past year with the Vulture TV Awards. Given the dizzying amount of material to sift through, this is no small task, but our writers and critics pored over 12 months’ worth of material (from last June until now) and returned with selections for their favorite moments and performances in hand. We’ve also enlisted David Milch, Damon Lindelof, Amy Sherman-Palladino, and other industry luminaries to write about and discuss the small-screen stuff that blew them away over the past year. And we’re kicking it all off with a real awards ceremony (hint: not actually real). The stars are all gathered at the refreshingly air-conditioned Varick Street Pavilion to help us celebrate the year that was in television. And here’s your host, Julie Klausner!Hello, and welcome to the first-ever Vulture TV Awards! My name is Julie Klausner and I love television! »

Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino on Stalking Sutton Foster, Producing Broadway, and Bunheads Memories

4 June 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After the unfortunate and unjust cancellation of their series Bunheads last year, writer-producers Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino moved back to Brooklyn. But they couldn’t sever ties with leading lady Sutton Foster. If anything, they paid to get closer, volunteering to produce her next project, the Broadway musical Violet. The show, with music by Jeanine Tesori, stars Foster as a girl with a tremendous facial scar. It’s funny, strange, moving, and completely worth the price of admission; it is also up for four Tony Awards this weekend. The Palladinos chatted with Vulture about their obsession with Foster and the perks of producing theatre. And just because we could, we found out about the origins of BunheadsTommy Lee Jones impression-off.When I saw Violet last month, I had no idea what it was about. It’s almost better not to know going in.Amy Sherman-Palladino: That's the exciting thing. »

Gilmore Girls Creator Says She Based That One Dude’s Family on the Sulzbergers

20 May 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In case the main thing you’ve been wondering throughout the Jill Abramson–Sulzberger fiasco is, “Did they base the family of Gilmore Girls’ Logan Huntzberger on the Sulzbergers?” the answer is, basically, yes. “Oh, absolutely,” the 2000–'07 show’s creator Amy Sherman-Palladino told Vulture during an interview this morning. “It wasn’t even veiled — the word ‘berger’ is in there. We weren't trying to be clever. We just figured that was the kind of family [Logan] would be part of.”For those of you not still stuck in the early '00s, Logan (who was played by The Good Wife’s Matt Czuchry) was Rory Gilmore's super-rich, delightfully Waspy newspaper scion boyfriend/almost-fiancé. While Sherman-Palladino never met a real live Sulzberger and "can't attest to their personal qualities," she wanted the Huntzbergers to be "a family of newspaper royalty in that vein. And a little, you know, a lot of »

'Gentleman's Guide', Neil Patrick Harris' 'Hedwig' lead nominations for the 2014 Tony Awards

29 April 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Fully realizing its underdog appeal, the cheeky musical A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder slayed the competition this morning with a whopping 10 Tony nominations, including nods for both of its tireless leading men, Jefferson Mays and Bryce Pinkham. Neil Patrick Harris’ return to Broadway after a decade yielded him his first-ever Tony nomination for the celebrated revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which netted an impressive eight nods. (Had it been eligible as a new musical, Hedwig probably would have easily tied Guide, as score and book would have been slam dunks). Trailing these shows with seven »

'Gilmore Girls' movie: Lauren Graham says maybe. We say yes.

25 March 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Oy with the poodles already!

In an Ama chat on reddit Monday, the once and future Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) dropped by to answer questions about her new book —  Someday, Someday, Maybe. But of course, talk immediately turned to Gilmore Girls. Like, is Scott Patterson a good kisser? (Yes.) Does she still hang out with Alexis Bledel sometimes? (Yes.) But mostly: Will there be a movie? No, seriously, when is the Gilmore Girls movie happening?

Graham didn’t announce a greenlight (her rep didn’t respond to EW’s request for comment), but she did note, “If a movie version »

Flowers in the Attic Sequel Casts Bunheads Star

25 February 2014 6:05 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Bunheads actress Bailey Buntain has been cast in Lifetime's Flowers in the Attic sequel, Petals on the Wind, which picks up ten years after the kids escaped the attic. Buntain will play Carrie, the surviving Dollanganger twin whose brother Corey died in the first film after being slowly poisoned by his mother's arsenic doughnuts. Heather Graham and Ellen Burstyn will reprise their roles as TV's most twisted child tormentors, and Rose McIver and Wyatt Nash will play sibs turned lovers Cathy and Chris (replacing Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka and Mason Dye).This means Amy Sherman-Palladino will totally tune in. Buntain's former boss once told us all about her deep familiarity with the V.C. Andrews series — "Porn for teenage girls! Remember those kids living in the attic for years? The brother and sister are having sex. It was just the dirtiest!" — and explained its unlikely connection to Bunheads: After the traumatizing events of Flowers, »

Notebook's 6th Writers Poll: Fantasy Double Features of 2013

13 January 2014 11:53 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Looking back over the year at what films moved and impressed us, it is clear that watching old films is a crucial part of making new films meaningful. Thus, the annual tradition of our end of year poll, which calls upon our writers to pick both a new and an old film: they were challenged to choose a new film they saw in 2013—in theaters or at a festival—and creatively pair it with an old film they also saw in 2013 to create a unique double feature.

All the contributors were given the option to write some text explaining their 2013 fantasy double feature. What's more, each writer was given the option to list more pairings, with or without explanation, as further imaginative film programming we'd be lucky to catch in that perfect world we know doesn't exist but can keep dreaming of every time we go to the movies.
