‘The Affair’ Finale Signals Warning of Wrong Turn (Spoilers)

8 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Affair” capped an otherwise splendid first season in somewhat uninspired fashion. Yes, the Showtime series closed on a cliffhanger, one that creates a host of possibilities going forward, in an hour that also incorporated a couple of pretty major revelations. Yet the show’s murder-mystery – not just whodunit, but who got it done to them – has at times felt like its least compelling component, and the twists elevated that plot in a way that approximated less the confines of premium cable than the histrionics of ABC’s Sunday-night soaps.

At its core, the program’s terrific leads, Ruth Wilson and Dominic West, their characters’ torrid affair and its complications for all those surrounding them has unfolded in slow but absorbing fashion. That was augmented by the “Rashomon”-like device of having events recalled in the two characters’ alternate perspectives, with details often diverging in small but significant ways.

The Affair Boss Explains Stunning Finale and What's Ahead in Season 2 (More Narratives!)

8 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

"Do you believe me?" Gah. We think that's the best way we can sum up our immediate reaction after watching The Affair's season finale. (Warning, spoilers ahead!) We didn't get to see how Scotty's (Colin Donnell) murder went down, but an arrest was made: in the final scene, set in the present-day, Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson) are in their NYC apartment (yes, they're together!), getting ready for a night in after putting their (?) daughter to bed, when Detective Jeffries comes in and arrests Noah. "I'll get you out of this," Alison promises. "Do you believe me?"  This. Freakin'. Show. But worry not, as a  definitive answer to who murdered »

The Affair Boss Officially Shoots Down One of the Most Popular Theories

19 December 2014 11:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Who do you believe?  The Affair, Showtime's gripping drama that tells the story of an affair and a murder from two different narratives, has inspired a lot of debate and theorizing since its debut. So much, in fact, that we are even calling it the new Lost, because every single person who watches has a theory. And they will argue that their theory is right until they are blue in the face...or until their fingers cramp up from typing out so many tweets about it. Is Noah (Dominic West) telling the truth or utilizing his storytelling skills to make for a better narrative? Should we trust the fragile Alison (Ruth Wilson)? Or, you know, should we just not believe either of them?  Heading into Sunday's »

10 Great TV Shows You Probably Missed in 2014

17 December 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

2014's fall TV line-up delivered some seriously stunning performances, not to mention a few truly incredible new shows -- but the only problem? There was such an abundance of critically acclaimed television that our DVRs could barely keep up. If you missed out on more quality viewing than is healthy, don't sweat it. Moviefone's rounded up a list of hits that you may have missed in 2014 (too busy binging "Gilmore Girls" on Netflix, probably), which means you officially have a plan for winter break!

"The Affair"

If the multiple Golden Globe nominations aren't enough to inspire you to watch "The Affair," you might be interested to know that it stars none other than Joshua Jackson, aka Pacey from "Dawson's Creek." "The Affair" -- which follows the romantic dalliances of a married man and woman in Montauk -- is one part mysterious and one million parts evocative, but the show is »

Band Aid Challenge: The Affair's Dominic West Embraces Bob Geldof's New Charity Trend

16 December 2014 9:05 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Well, we just got over ice-bucket-challenging each other, so we'll see how this new thing takes off. Bob Geldof is attempting to launch a new charity trend amongst his celebrity friends. The challenge is pretty simple, actually: You sing Bono's line from the Band Aid 30 re-release of "Do They Know It's Christmas": "Well tonight we're reaching out and touching you." (You also donate money to Band Aid, naturally.) Geldof nominated The Affair (and yes, The Wire) actor Dominic West, Homeland's Damian Lewis, and Richard E. Grant (known variously from Doctor Who, Withnail & I and Luther). West, for his part, »

The Affair, Ep. 1.09: “9″ brings big changes for certain characters

15 December 2014 9:10 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Joshua Jackson, Ruth Wilson

The Affair, Season 1, Episode 9: “9″

Teleplay by Melanie Marnich and Kate Robin, Story by Dan LeFranc

Directed by Jeffrey Reiner

Airs Sundays at 10 pm Et on Showtime

While the end of the Soloways’ stay in Montauk seemed to signal the end of the affair between Alison and Noah, last week’s episode proved that, while the two may have tried to move on by being honest with their spouses, time had not dulled the affection the two seemed to feel for each other, nor had it lessened the desire for the affair’s continuation on either side. This week’s episode sees Alison and Noah take drastic steps to act on things they have wanted to do for a long time, in another compelling episode that further develops Noah and Alison, giving the audience the clearest look yet at what drives both individuals.

The 10 Best TV Dramas of 2014

15 December 2014 1:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Blame “True Detective,” in part, which helped kick off 2014 in rousing fashion, but the blurred line between “limited series” and just plain old series has complicated the definition of a “drama.” But for the purposes of a year-end list, the two can coexist, encompassing any program presented on an episodic basis, even if the story offered closure.

By that measure, both “True Detective” and “Fargo” — the latter categorized as a miniseries for Emmy balloting — as well as Starz’s “The Missing” can join an array of dramas that, frankly, could easily fill a “top 20” list. But who on Earth has time to click through that?

Obviously, reducing the current age of drama to an arbitrary tally is going to overlook several heavy hitters, and the roster underwent considerable tinkering right down till the end. Series like “The Walking Dead,” “Mad Men” and “Downton Abbey” – -which all would have qualified in the past –- didn’t, »

Plot and setting details for Finding Dory have emerged at Comic Con Experience in Brazil.

According to Slashfilm (via Omelete), Pixar president Jim Morris revealed that the majority of the film will take place at the Marine Biology Institute of California, a large rehabilitation facility for marine life.

Both Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo will return in the sequel and make the journey with her - Willem Defoe will be returning too, but it is unclear in what capacity.

Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy have signed up to play the voices of Dory's parents.

Meanwhile, The Wire's Idris Elba and Dominic West will reunite and voice characters in the sequel.

Finding Dory has previously been delayed, and is »

Why Matthew Warchus Returned to Film After 15 Years for Surprise Globe Nominee 'Pride'

11 December 2014 9:58 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This crowdpleasing winner of the Queer Palm at Cannes--where it closed the Directors' Fortnight--centers on the true UK story of a group of eager, streetwise, Lgbt youngsters who in 1984 rallied to support the underserved National Union of Mineworkers, taking their little-campaign-that-could (Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners) from the grassroots level in a small Welsh village to national fame. Warchus' first film in 15 years after 1998's commercially unsuccessful "Simpatico" boasts an impressive glut of rising stars including Joseph Gilgun, Jessie Cave, Freddie Fox, Liz White, Andrew Scott, Russell Tovey and, of course, adorable 22-year-old George MacKay who plays young Joe, the film's in-the-closet, fish-out-of-water hero who lives outside London and is a stranger in this strange land of the city. Across-the-pond regulars include Bill Nighy, Paddy Considine, Imelda Staunton, and a scene-stealing Dominic West as a tortured but life-loving artist living with »

Announcing the 2015 Golden Globe Nominations

11 December 2014 9:15 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning, continuing this week's exciting slew of award nods after Wednesday's SAG Award nominees. There are way more movie nominations to go around this time, what with both the drama and musical/comedy categories, so even tohough there are a lot of the same names seen at the SAGs, there are still some new entrants to award season, like Selma and Big Eyes (though still no American Sniper or Unbroken). There are some surprises in the TV categories, however; while there are lots of repeat names from years past (and this year's Emmys), it's exciting to see Jane the Virgin (and its star, Gina Rodriguez) and Transparent up for Globes! The Globes air Jan. 11, so see everyone who's nominated here.

The Golden Globes! Everyone’s favorite Almost-the-Oscars ceremony. The 72nd Annual nominations were unveiled Thursday morning by presenters Kate Beckinsale, Jeremy Piven, Paula Patton, Peter Krause and Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Theo Kingma.

The HFPA went in big on Boyhood, The Imitation Game, Birdman, and The Theory of Everything, placing Birdman into the Comedy/Musical category where it is likely to clean up. Missing from the bunch are heavy hitters like Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper and only a single nomination for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.

On the TV front, it was a big morning for Transparent, Orange is the New Black, The Affair, and House of Cards, while snubbing Emmy favorites Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory, as well as hits like The Walking Dead, The Americans, Mad Men or the final season of Boardwalk Empire.

'The Affair,' 'Orange Is The New Black' lead 2015 Golden Globe TV nominations

11 December 2014 6:45 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Showtime's "The Affair" and Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black" were among several TV shows receiving three nods as nominations for the 2015 Golden Globes were announced on Thursday (December 11) morning. Also receiving three nominations on the series side were CBS' "The Good Wife" and Netflix's "House of Cards," though all of the shows competing for series crowns are behind FX's "Fargo" and HBO's "True Detective," which earned five and four nominations respectively and are heading for an epic showdown in the Movie/Miniseries field.  On the Best Television Series - Drama side, "The Affair" will be going up against "Downton Abbey," "Game of Thrones," "The Good Wife" and "House of Cards," with "Game of Thrones" the only one from this group not to earn a single individual nomination.

Nominations For The 72nd Annual Golden Globes Announced

11 December 2014 6:39 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their nominations for the 72nd Annual Golden Globes. Again we have Birdman at the head of the pack, earning seven nominations (all categories it was eligible for), including Best Picture – Comedy/Musical, Best Director, Best Actor – Comedy/Musical, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay, and Best Original Score. Boyhood and The Imitation Game followed behind with five nods apiece, which included Best Picture – Drama, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Screenplay.

There weren’t any particularly surprising inclusions in this morning’s nominations, as nearly everything we expected to be here made it in. What’s perhaps most surprising of all is that Angelina Jolie’s war drama Unbroken, a film that was expected to fetch at least a little recognition, was completely shut out. Nor did we see the music drama Whiplash take more than its most expected nod for Best Supporting Actor. »

Golden Globe voters' love of the new leads to noms for 'Jane the Virgin' & more

11 December 2014 6:18 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is in every way a less legitimate organization than the Screen Actors Guild, yet the Golden Globe TV nominations list is always so much more interesting than whatever SAG puts out the day before. The HFPA shares the SAG voters love of famous movie actors deigning to do television, but they couple that with a love of all things new and shiny that can sometimes be ridiculous and other times be awesome. So where yesterday's SAG nominations were predictable and dull in the extreme, this morning's list of Golden Globe TV nominees has plenty of unexpected stuff on it — some terrific, some just odd. So, yes, there are tons of famous names on there, particularly since the HFPA decided to treat "True Detective" as a miniseries, which therefore created some breathing room for "The Knick" star Clive Owen to join the drama actors list, along with usual suspects Kevin Space, »
