Aden Young had just wrapped season three of SundanceTV's "Rectify" when he learned he had been nominated for a Critics' Choice TV Award for Best Drama Actor. "I was down in Griffin, Georgia, and I'd decided to stay on with my family on a little farm we'd rented for the duration of the shoot," he says. "I just got an email about it and was running around in my socks with my kids. We just danced a little bit, and then we got on with doing something – I think we went fishing to celebrate." (Watch our complete video chat below.) -Break- Emmys Mvp: 'Rectify' should put SundanceTV and star Aden Young on the map Young plays Daniel Holden, who is released from prison after new evidence calls into question his conviction for the murder of his high school sweetheart.

Scream Queens, which received a new trailer this week.
USA Network has formally given a series order to Queen of the South. The series will be based on the 2002 Spanish novel La Raina Del Sur by Arturo Pérez-Reverte, which has already been adapted into a Spanish-language telenovela, and will star City of God and Predators‘ Alice Braga in the lead role of Teresa Mendoza. The series synopsis is as follows.
Queen Of The South tells the powerful story of Teresa Mendoza (Braga). When her drug-dealing boyfriend is unexpectedly murdered in Mexico, Teresa is forced to go on the run and seek refuge in America, where she teams with an unlikely figure from her past to bring down the leader of the very drug trafficking ring that has her on the run. In the process, she learns the tools of the trade and strategically positions herself to become the leader of the Cartel. »

Yesterday, the nominations for the 5th annual Critics Choice Television Awards were announced. The sister group to the Critics Choice Movie Awards, this is what could be looked at as a bit of an Emmy Awards precursor, if you will. I’m not exactly an expert when it comes to TV and this awards season (it’s mostly film or bust for me in that regard), but I watch a handful of shows and follow along with the race. Not enough to accurately do predictions, mind you, but I did think this nomination announcement was worthy of a mention. As such, today we have the list of Critics Choice nominees, which I’ll be revealing to you shortly. Among the titles that fared best this year with the nominations, we have Justified lead the way with five nominations. Following that, we have The Americans, The Good Wife, and Transparent with four apiece. »

The nominations for the fifth annual Critics Choice Television Awards were announced today, and somewhat of a surprise (although a very welcome one) was the love given to Justified for its final season. The FX drama received five nominations in total, including nods for best drama series, lead actor for Timothy Olyphant, supporting actor for Walton Goggins (who received two nomnations this year, the second for guest-starring work on Sons of Anarchy), supporting actress for Joelle Carter, and guest performer for Sam Elliott.

Other first time nominees include Taraji P.Henson (for Empire), Craig T. Nelson and Mae Whitman (for Parenthood), Eva Green (for Penny Dreadful), Viola Davis (for How to Get Away With Murder), Bob Odenkirk (for Better Call Saul), Aden Young (for »

Like many others, I felt an initial skepticism when "Looking" debuted on HBO in 2014: does this group of hip young urbanites truly represent me and the "gay experience"? I put that in quotes because it's a nebulous term, suggesting a single representative idea of gay life that doesn't really exist. -Break- Emmys Mvp: 'Rectify' should put SundanceTV and star Aden Young on the map I think such knee-jerk defensiveness is inevitable for any creative work targeted at an underserved audience. With so few opportunities to see yourself reflected in the media you consume, there's pressure on any given project to be equally representative of all, which of course is impossible. Even the most inclusive TV show can't be everything to everyone. Nothing good ever is. (It should be noted, though, that "Looking" has turned out to be one of TV's most inclusive shows in terms of race, »
"Rectify" is an Emmys underdog in just about every way, but the TV academy should take notice, especially now that the drama categories have opened up with the expansion of Best Drama Series to at least seven nominees, not to mention the absences of "Breaking Bad" and "True Detective." This is one of the season's very best shows. -Break- Emmys Mvp: Chris Pratt leaves us laughing on 'Parks and Recreation' It's is the first original series from SundanceTV, which has had some awards success for its longform programming, most notably "Top of the Lake" in 2013, but the TV academy may not yet think of the cable network when considering the best continuing dramas. But ignoring it would be a mistake. The series follows Daniel Holden (Aden Young), who was sent to death row as a teenager for the murder of his girlfriend, only to be released 19 years later »
