'Mad Men' Cast Options Set To Expire Amidst Series Renewal, Matt Weiner Talks

17 December 2010 4:51 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

It looks like we're in for another round of drawn-out Mad Men negotiations between AMC and Lionsgate TV and between Lionsgate and series creator/showrunner Matthew Weiner. And while talks on both fronts are underway, another deadline is looming - the options on the cast expire at the end of the month. That certainly complicates things as the producing studio may have to make a decision on the cast before the show's future is certain. But if you can't imagine Mad Men without Jon Hamm or Elisabeth Moss or January Jones or John Slattery, you don't have to. While it appears that there may not be a deal for the show's renewal by the end of the month, I hear Lionsgate fully intends to exercise the actors' options before the Dec. 31 deadline. That is a good sign that the studio anticipates that Mad Men will be back for a fifth season. »

‘The Fighter’ & ‘The King’s Speech’ Lead Screen Actors Guild Award Nominees

16 December 2010 10:09 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Today the nominations for the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards was released. The King’s Speech and The Fighter received the most nominations, with four each. Thankfully the Guild seems to know what they are doing unlike The Golden Globes who pretty much screwed up all the nominations.

The nominees here are usually a very strong indication of how the acting award nominees will play out at the Oscars. King’s Speech has long been an Oscar favourite, but David O. Russell’s The Fighter has gained considerable steam in the past few weeks. Last year, 19 out of 20 SAG nominees went to the Oscars as well so you can be sure that The Fighter and King’s Speech will get a best picture nomination. The 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS on January 20th. See the complete list below.

SAG Nominees Announced - Chris Colfer Up for Lifetime Achievement Award

16 December 2010 7:12 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Okay, totally kidding about the Colfer Lifetime Achievement Award thing - that will be going to Ernest Borgnine. But does it seem to you that the kid who plays Kurt Hummel is getting an awful lot of awards season love? (And wouldn't McHale's Navy have been so much better with him in it?)

The latest outpouring of Colfer acclaim comes from the Screen Actors Guild who announced their 17th annual SAG nominees this morning.

The Glee cast is up for a comedy ensemble award, but Colfer was the only cast member other than Jane Lynch to be recognized individually. And given who he's up against he's almost certain to be the frontrunner!

Another bit of good news for a Glbt favorite, The Kids Are All Right, scored individual acting nods for Annete Bening, Mark Rufallo, and also a nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Cast.

Screen Actors Guild Award Nominees Announced & It’s Less “Colorful” Than The Golden Globes

16 December 2010 6:44 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

The complete list of nominations for the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards follows below. The ceremony will be held on January 30th, 2011.

Nothing really to highlight here, unfortunately. SAG voters apparently didn’t care for Halle Berry’s performance as much as the Golden Globes did, because she’s not on this list. And neither is Idris Elba, who was also nominated for a Golden Globe. The cast of For Colored Girls got no love either.

The significance here is that SAG nominees and winners are voted on by members of the union – essentially, their peers.

But one thing that should be obvious by now is that the Oscar race is going to come down to 4 films and the performances in those films: The Social Network, Black Swan, The King’s Speech, and The Fighter. I still have to see the last 2.

Here’s the full list:

Golden Globes - The AMC Brag Sheet

14 December 2010 9:43 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Okay, AMC's turn to brag.  The Golden Globe Nominations are out and, not surprisingly, AMC has scored noms in all major categories including two shots at best drama for Mad Men and The Walking Dead.  That makes AMC the Only network to have two shows in the Best Drama Series category.  AMC has strengthened its position as a source of quality story telling gradually every year.  Heck, the cable channel has practically become the gold standard;  still, I'm more then a little shocked that Breaking Bad wasn't in there - and that The Walking Dead was.  Don't shoot me just yet,  I totally believe The Walking Dead deserves the nomination, I'm just surprised at how quickly AMC has managed to legitimize the horror genre.  I'd think any stodgy group of award-nominator-types would be quicker to give Breaking Bad a nom than some rural-emo zombie epic.  Who knew.  Not so stodgy after all. »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part One

13 December 2010 7:39 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Back for its third year (see the 2010 edition) and bigger than ever, today kicks off the first in a fifteen-part look at the various cinematic releases hitting the U.S. in 2011. Each 'part' contains brief descriptions and editorial opinion/analysis of varying length covering twenty films. Expect the remaining ones to go up between now and the first major releases in mid-January.

Like all cinematic lists set within a timeframe, there's some overlap. Some films here have already opened worldwide but have yet to hit the U.S., some upcoming films you'd expect to be here aren't because they're either still in development or have already announced 2012 release dates, some were on last year's list but got delayed so have been included again (but with all new analysis).

I confined my list to films that have either set 2011 release dates or had begun/completed production, and only films that have »

John Slattery has revealed that he loves playing Roger Sterling on Mad Men. According to Advertising Age, the actor explained that he is constantly impressed with the quality of the show.

Matt Damon & Emily Blunt Are Apparently Giants In New Poster For 'The Adjustment Bureau'

30 November 2010 6:19 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"The Adjustment Bureau" was a film that always held a lot of promise. Based, like "Blade Runner" and "Total Recall," on a story by legendary sci-fi author Philip K Dick, it marked the directorial debut of "The Bourne Ultimatum" writer George Nolfi, and featured a top-notch cast, led by Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, with John Slattery, Anthony Mackie, Terence Stamp and Shohreh Aghdashloo joining them. The plot involves Damon's senatorial candidate falling for a ballet dancer (Blunt) he meets by chance, only to be confronted by a group of mysterious men who tell him that their encounter was never… »

‘The Adjustment Bureau’ & ‘I Am Number Four’ Posters

30 November 2010 6:13 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Two high-profile films have their poster debut today. First up is Universal’s delayed romantic sci-fi drama, The Adjustment Bureau, which hits in March. Based on the Philip K. Dick short story and written/directed by George Nolfi, the film stars Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, John Slattery, Terence Stamp and Shoreh Agdashloo. In the film “Damon play a Us Senatorial candidate who’s up for election when he falls for a ballet dancer played by Blunt – but strange forces conspire to keep them apart.”

We have two new posters for the film, a UK quad from Empire above, and the Us poster below via their Facebook page. I’m excited for the film, but unfortunately these posters look photoshopped to hell and doesn’t quite give off that old-school vibe it looks like they were trying for.
