A Brutally Honest Festival Breakdown: Winners, Losers, and Oscar Frontrunners

20 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Three weeks of film festivals and hundreds of movies later, one stands as the clear winner. Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” won a prize for Emma Stone in Venice, wowed Telluride, and walked away with the Audience Award in Toronto —and by the end of that festival, people paid “Hamilton”-premiums for tickets to the last screening,

Now, that’s word of mouth.

Of course, “La La Land” isn’t alone in its accolades. Here’s how the players came out at the end of the three festivals.

Winners

A24

Established studio players like Sony Pictures Classics aim their sights at the loyal theatergoers who tend to be older; getting younger cinephiles to come to a theater is harder than ever. Nevertheless, A24 seems to have figured out a way. They acquire movies like excoriated Cannes entry “The Sea of Trees” to go out via their deal with DirectTV and iTunes, »

Sorry folks, it looks like we’ll never get a ‘Freaks and Geeks’ revival series [Exclusive]

5 June 2016 4:44 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Freaks and Geeks actor Martin Starr confirms that a reunion series is unlikely.

Earlier this week we caught up with American actor Martin Starr, who can currently be seen playing Gilfoyle in HBO’s Silicon Valley. However, much like James FrancoSeth Rogen and Jason Segal, Starr started his career in the brilliant Us teen series Freaks and Geeks. The show, set in the 1980’s, followed the teenage drama of Linda Cardellini‘s Lindsay Weir, a mathlete who decides to rebel and starts hanging out with a group of ‘burnouts’.

Sadly the show only ran for one season but struck a chord with a generation, and along with shows like Firefly, often appears in lists of ‘shows cancelled too soon’ or ‘shows that we want back’. Given that platforms such as Netflix seem to be open to the idea of reviving beloved series’ (they are currently bringing Gilmore Girls back »

How I Met Your Mother's top 10 episodes

We pick from over 200 episodes of CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother to select the 10 funniest...

When How I Met Your Mother came to a final close almost two years ago, it’s fair to say opinion was divided on the ultimate resolution to Ted Mosby’s nine year, epic romance. Some viewers felt a tad cheated that creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas pulled what was seen as a ‘cop out’ ending.  Personally, I didn’t hate the final episode but that doesn't mean it's going to be on this list either.

How I Met Your Mother amassed a total of 208 episodes and this list is devoted to its 10 finest transmissions. Like any show that runs for so long, there were the expected dips in quality over How I Met Your Mother's life span. When whittling down choices, not a single episode of the »

‘Freaks and Geeks’ Reboot? Judd Apatow Teases ‘Anything Can Happen’

17 January 2016 10:55 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Freaks and Geeks” — a.k.a., the show that was canceled too soon — has been the subject of a possible reboot since it was axed by NBC after just one short season back in 2000.

Though creator Paul Feig has shot down revival rumors in the past, on Sunday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif., exec producer Judd Apatow said there is a glimmer of hope.

“I don’t think so,” he said, talking to a small group of reporters, when asked if he’d want to revisit the “Freaks and Geeks” characters. “I think we had a beautiful poetic ending, and it’s a miracle that it worked so well. You don’t want to see what happened in the diner after ‘The Sopranos’ ended. As much as at the time it threw you, as the years passed you think, that was a brilliant ending so »
