How Cobie Smulders Met Her 'Unexpected' Indie-Movie Future

23 July 2015 7:26 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Cobie Smulders is not accustomed to being singled out. The How I Met Your Mother star and Marvel universe apparatchik tends to operate in the company of others, which is why she found herself somewhat stricken with panic earlier this year at the Sundance premiere of her latest film, Unexpected, which opens in theaters and on demand this Friday. "Oh shit," she recalls thinking. "I'm in every scene."

It's true, she is — though it's about time. Fans of her CBS sitcom, which concluded its nine-season run last year, might agree »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Actress in a Drama Series

21 July 2015 12:49 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Unlike the other three drama acting categories, all the actresses nominated in 2014 for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series were eligible again this year. But four of them didn't make the cut anyway, including the winner. Julianna Margulies won here last year for "The Good Wife," and she was left off along with Lizzy Caplan ("Masters of Sex"), Michelle Dockery ("Downton Abbey") and Kerry Washington ("Scandal"). Only Claire Danes ("Homeland") and Robin Wright ("House of Cards") return, though Elisabeth Moss ("Mad Men") is also back after sitting last year out. Will one of those three win? If so, they'll have to beat out an epic trio of new competitors. There's Viola Davis, who many thought was a lock to win at the Golden Globes and remains a hot contender for freshman sensation "How to Get Away With Murder." Taraji P. Henson is also high on a lot of lists thanks to her show-stopping role in. »

Taraji P. Henson and Viola Davis Just Made Emmy History and It's. About. Time.

16 July 2015 10:56 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

All together now: finally! In all the craziness that comes with Emmy nominations, one major surprise came out of the announcement this morning that has us feeling all kinds of relieved...and totally proud. Viola Davis and Taraji P. Henson, both nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress In a Drama Series for How To Get Away With Murder and Empire, respectively, have officially made history. How? This is the first time that two black women have earned an Emmy nomination in the same year in this category. It's about time! In fact, before Kerry Washington's 2013 nomination for Scandal, the last black woman to be nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series was Cicely Tyson in 1995. Which is »

Emmys 2015: Viola Davis, Taraji P. Henson Could Make History

16 July 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There was lots to cheer about and lots to jeer about with the announcement of the 2015 Emmy nominations Thursday, and tucked in among the usual snubs and surprises was a bit of history surrounding the nods for Viola Davis and Taraji P. Henson.

The actresses, who are both up for the Best Leading Actress award in the drama category for "How to Get Away with Murder" and "Empire," respectively, are now the first two African-Americans to be nominated in that category in the same year. That bit of trivia aside, both Davis and Henson could make even more history during the ceremony should one of them snag the statuette.

According to TheWrap, an African-American has never won that particular award at the Emmys, and the likelihood of women of color even getting a nomination in that category has, sadly, been even more remote. The trade traces that stat's origins back »

My Fearless, Somewhat Frightening 2015 Emmy Predictions

14 July 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

I have a bad feeling that Jane the Virgin is about to get royally screwed.

Emmy Nominations will be announced this Thursday at 11:30 am/Est, and my gut is telling me that the sublime freshman comedy — and its sterling ensemble led by Gina Rodriguez —will fall victim to the Academy’s long-held bias against The CW.

I really hope I am wrong.

Crush of the week: Kerry Washington

26 June 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

‘There is a thrilling core of steel in Kerry Washington. She radiates capability alongside ethereal beauty’

There are three options for my Halloween costume this year, and top of the list is Scandal’s Olivia Pope, played by Kerry Washington. Her ascent has been a cultural moment for some years now.

It was not always thus. I first saw her in 2001 teen movie Save The Last Dance, in which she played a tough but kind student single mother. That small role led to parts in bigger things (Spike Lee’s She Hate Me, a role in Oscar-winning Ray) and the big thing came in 2012, when she was cast in Shonda Rhimes’ megahit, Scandal.
