Paris– Zurich Film Festival will open with James Brown biopic “Get on Up,” helmer Tate Taylor’s follow up to Oscar-winning “The Help.”

Taylor, Chadwick Boseman, who plays Brown, and Octavia Spencer, who stars as the singer’s aunt, will be in Zurich to attend the premiere.

Snowpiercer Is The First Oscars Screener Sent To Academy Members

27 August 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Boasting a 95% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer has become one of the most critically heralded films of the year. And now it's the first to be sent to the Academy of Arts and Sciences for consideration for awards season. Deadline dropped the news that a DVD of Snowpiercer has been sent out to Academy members, who could receive the sci-fi drama as early as today.

Emmys 2014 Recap: Was This a Rerun?

25 August 2014 9:34 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What do you suppose Sarah Silverman meant by the bizarre remark in her Emmy acceptance speech Sunday night that we're all made of molecules hurtling through space? Maybe it was an oblique reference to television itself, which is now less a medium than a disembodied signal that we watch at a time and place of our own choosing. On some level, the creators of TV seem to realize that their medium is heading into a future that's even less shackled to the living room screen and the three hours after dinner than ever. And yet, watching last night's 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, one felt a sense of déjà vu, of watching a medium celebrate its ties to its own past. We'd seen many of the honorees picking up trophies before, and maybe we'd even heard the same jokes and patter before.

Emmy Fashion: Red, White and Safe All Over

25 August 2014 7:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s no longer even an open secret that celebs don’t pick their own clothes for red carpet events, or any events really. They hire stylists, stylists have relationships with fashion houses, and fashion houses make strategic moves to have them aligned with the stars of the moment.

Take the impressive host of Lebanese designers: Elie Saab who dressed Julia Roberts in a short beaded frock, Nicholas Jebran who dressed Allison Janney in a long red velvet knotted dress and Zuhair Murad who dressed Camila Alves and Taylor Schilling. Some are up and comers, others, established designers, but would those actors have come upon these notable designers without the help of their stylists?

Matthew McConaughey has long been aligned with Dolce & Gabbana, and stuck with the label Monday night in a dashing navy tuxedo that recalled the ones he’s worn at other awards shows. Likewise, Octavia Spencer and Tadashi Shoji continued their relationship, »

Never again, TV Academy.  Never again. I don't care if NBC has to do the Emmys in August because of football and if NBC is scared of going head-to-head with a competing award show. Doing the Emmys on Monday is just wrong. But we shall trudge on! Seth Meyers is hosting. Some fantastic TV shows and actors are nominated.  Follow along. Comment below. Join the fun. Make the fun. 8:00 p.m. Et. That was some of the worst Red Carpet pre-show I've ever watched between E! and NBC. I never thought I'd miss Ryan Seacrest, but there ya go! 8:00 p.m. Seth Meyers was just outside being interviewed by Billy Bush just two minutes ago. How will he make it inside? How?!?!? 8:00 p.m. A countdown! 20 seconds to go. 8:00 p.m. And now Seth is inside on-stage. How Is That Possible, Billy Bush?!? 8:01 p.m. »

25 August 2014 11:47 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Emmy Awards are on NBC at 5 p.m. Monday, but the celebrations start early. Variety will be on hand inside the best parties around Hollywood as the stars mingle, nibble and toast to TV’s finest. Here’s our party report for Sunday, Aug. 24:

11:55 a.m. ICM Partners’ annual brunch has become a welcome respite from the swirl of nighttime events on Emmy weekend. Waiters with cups of Sangria spiked with apple slices and grapes greeted guests on the steps of Chris Silbermann’s Santa Monica home. The brunch  was fantastic — fresh crepes made on the spot, blintzes, all manner of egg dishes and fruit. There’s a reason we skipped breakfast.

12:05 p.m. No ICM Partners brunch is complete without a chat with “Breaking Bad’s” Vince Gilligan and his rep Mark Gordon. Vince was cheery as usual with a pink shirt to match. He »

9 Things to Expect During the 2014 Emmys

22 August 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Remember last year's Emmys, when "Nurse Jackie" co-star Merritt Wever won a stunning upset victory in the supporting actress category and delivered a flustered but delightfully human speech that lasted about 12 seconds? That's the sort of moment that Emmy viewers pray for, when spontaneity and real emotion break through the otherwise canned, tightly scripted ritual of a televised awards ceremony.

Turns out Emmycast producer Don Mischer prays for such moments as well. As he said in a recent Variety interview, such surprises drive Twitter traffic, which in turn drives viewership.

Of course, the problem with depending on such moments is that you can't plan them. All you can do is make room for them to happen. For the rest of the August 25 show, however, here's what you can expect to see, courtesy of Mischer and Emmy emcee Seth Meyers.

All About the New Show That May Break Your Heart (and Why That's a Good Thing)

20 August 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Inspired by a true story, Red Band Society is one of the most original series of the new Fall slate - it's also probably the most likely to make you cry. The drama takes place in the pediatric wing of a teaching hospital, and there's a colorful cast of kids to love. Octavia Spencer adds star power as a tough nurse caring for her brood, and Dave Annable (Brothers & Sisters) adds a little dose of eye candy. I caught the pilot already, so before you decide which new Fall shows you're going to watch, here's the scoop on the potentially heart-crushing (yet really fun) Red Band Society, which premieres at 9 p.m. on Sept. 17 on Fox. Read on to find out if you'll like it! »
