Emmys 2017: Handicapping the Top Series and Performer Races

25 July 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s that time of year again, when champagne corks are popped all over Hollywood in honor of the Television Academy’s Emmy nominations. But the true celebration cannot begin until the winners are announced live on Sept. 17. With so much high-quality TV vying for the top prizes — and some surprises among the nominees — it’s shaping up to be one of the most competitive Emmy seasons in years. Here, Variety breaks down the key races.

Drama Series

Taking the torch from “Game of Thrones,” which has been the most-nominated series for the past few years, is fellow HBO genre series “Westworld.” The sci-fi thriller is tied with long-running variety sketch series “Saturday Night Live” at 22 noms this year, the most of any series. More notably, it’s also one of five freshman series in the race — and that buzz may well boost it over long-in-the-tooth “House of Cards” (six noms for the Netflix drama), or even »

IndieWire Fall Film Festival Wish List: The 58 Movies We Want to See Most

24 July 2017 7:16 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

“Dunkirk” aside, deep summer looks like a fallow season for major films — but appearances are deceiving. This is perhaps their most-essential moment on the movie calendar, as it’s when distributors huddle, haggle, and negotiate to determine which movies will head for the almighty awards-season launch festivals of Venice, Telluride, Toronto, and New York.

From the festivals’ perspectives, they’re vying for the starriest red-carpet gala world premieres. (The exception is Telluride, which doesn’t have to vie; it gets to cherry pick its impeccably curated four-day Labor Day Weekend selection in secret.) Ahead of next week’s rollout of announcements, we called around for intel on what we can expect to see.

Oj Simpson Granted Parole

20 July 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

O.J. Simpson has been granted parole by the Nevada Board of Parole.

Simpson was granted the decision on Thursday while at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada, where he appeared live via video teleconference in front of the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners in Carson City. Simpson's eldest daughter, Arnelle, also spoke at the hearing in support of her father.

The decision was handed down by parole commissioners Connie S. Bisbee, Tony Corda, Adam Endel and Susan Jackson, the same four board members who granted Simpson parole at his July 2013 hearing on his kidnapping, robbery and burglary charges.

Emmy Voters Reward Veterans Over Risk-Takers

19 July 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The challenging goal of the Emmy Awards is to reflect who we are in this moment, to single out those shows that represent the best of what’s being created across all platforms. This year’s list of Emmy nominees succeeded in some ways — highlighting risk-taking freshmen shows such as FX’s “Atlanta” and “The Handmaid’s Tale” and exceptional performances from Sterling K. Brown, Nicole Kidman, Riz Ahmed and many others.

But frustratingly, the voters also showed a stubborn reluctance to let go of the past, with nods for legacy shows long past their prime. The result is an uneven lineup, scattered with bright spots but plagued by too many noteworthy omissions.

To be fair, their job isn’t easy — sifting through the nearly 500 scripted shows produced in the past year that fed into 117 categories and a record-breaking 9,000 submissions. No one reasonably has time to watch them all. (Those of us who cover TV barely do »

TV Review: Issa Rae’s ‘Insecure’ Season 2

18 July 2017 2:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s apparent by now that Issa Rae can do just about anything, except maybe win the World Series of Poker. Her face gives so much away, and that transparency would be a disadvantage in most card games. But it’s a situation that, in its confident second season, “Insecure” takes advantage of in witty and wonderful ways.

Of course, Rae’s character, Issa Dee, can keep it together when she has to — when a co-worker or a date is getting on her nerves, she is capable of putting on a stony game face and diverting her internal reaction (though in brief fantasy vignettes, we sometimes see how those fierce and frustrated responses would have played out).

But much of the time, Rae’s face is a wonder of subtle expressiveness and game adventurousness. She can take her character from embarrassment to anger to self-criticism to sarcasm in a matter of moments, and »

‘Insecure’ Season 2 Review: Issa Rae’s Stronger Follow-Up Year Finds Confidence From Unlikely Inspirations

18 July 2017 7:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

After a serious relationship, a bad break-up can mess up each ex for a long, long time. You question everything, make bad decisions, or experiment a little more than you should. But bad break-ups are also a big deal when they happen on TV: Destroying a functioning dynamic, especially when two main characters split up, risks disrupting the flow of a series as well as its future. Viewers can only watch for so long before they expect a re-coupling or permanent ending, and balancing the wait time with equally enticing alternate plot lines can kill a TV series.

Insecure” is better for it. Issa Rae makes mountains of insightful entertainment from the messy break-up that ended Season 1, and the first four episodes of Season 2 are consistently sharper than the prior offerings.

See the Official Poster for Marshall Starring Chadwick Boseman

14 July 2017 7:47 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Before Mlk and Malcom X, there was Thurgood Marshall. Witness the rise of the man who changed America.

Check out the brand new poster for director Reginald Hudlin’s Marshall, starring Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, Sterling K. Brown, and James Cromwell.

Long before he sat on the United States Supreme Court or claimed victory in Brown v. Board of Education, the landmark case that desegregated schools, Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) was a young rabble-rousing attorney for the NAACP. The new motion picture, Marshall, is the true story of his greatest challenge in those early days – a fight he fought alongside attorney Sam Friedman (Josh Gad), a young lawyer with no experience in criminal law: the case of black chauffeur Joseph Spell (Sterling K. Brown), accused by his white employer, Eleanor Strubing (Kate Hudson), of sexual assault and attempted murder.

Marshall hits theaters October 13th.

Milo Ventimiglia vs. Sterling K. Brown? The This Is Us Cast Is Seriously Torn Over Their Emmy Nominations

13 July 2017 3:24 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's father vs. son when it comes to the 2017 Emmys. As we predicted and hoped, This Is Us was nominated in multiple categories when the nominations were announced on Thursday morning. And while we initially squealed with delight when both Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia's names were read, we soon realized that Papa Pearson and his son Randall would be competing against each other come Emmy night, as both are up for Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series. Feeling torn? So are their cast mates! E!

Emmys 2017 Trivia: Julia Louis-Dreyfus Moves One Step Closer to History & 18 More Wild Things About This Year’s Noms

13 July 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This could be the year that Julia Louis-Dreyfus makes Emmy history.

Nominated once again for playing Selina Meyer on HBO’s “Veep,” Louis-Dreyfus is the favorite to win her sixth consecutive Emmy as outstanding comedy actress. In doing so, she would beat the record for most Emmys won by a performer in the same role for the same series.

Right now, Louis-Dreyfus is in a three-way tie with Candice Bergen (“Murphy Brown”) and Don Knotts (“Andy Griffith Show”). All three thesps won five Emmys for their roles on those shows. Now, Louis-Dreyfus is poised to leap ahead.

What’s more, she’s also in line this year to tie Cloris Leachman for the most Emmys ever won by a female performer. Leachman has eight; Louis-Dreyfus has seven – tied with Mary Tyler Moore and Allison Janney. (Janney, of course, is competing with Louis-Dreyfus in the comedy »
