'Modern Family' Season 5 DVD Preview: The Wedding | Exclusive

24 September 2014 7:31 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before Modern Family returns tonight on ABC with the Season 6 premiere, "The Long Honeymoon", we have a behind-the-scenes sneak peek at last season's big wedding with an exclusive featurette from Modern Family: Season 5, which is currently available on DVD.

Executive producer Abraham Higginbotham, who also wrote the first part of the Season 5 finale, "The Wedding (Part 1)", takes us behind-the-scenes of Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cameron's (Eric Stonestreet) wedding, and all of the trivial decisions that have to be made before the big event takes place.

Wedding bells are ringing in Season 5 of Modern Family, the hilariously heartfelt winner of four consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series. As Cam and Mitch bicker over plans for their big day, the rest of the family has its hands full adapting to new jobs, new schools, and a new male nanny. There are babysitting disasters, an anniversary to celebrate, misguided male bonding, »

‘Modern Family’ Cast Talks Emotional Wedding Finale

20 May 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One of TV’s most popular couples, “Modern Family’s” Mitch and Cam, finally met at the altar and got married. To celebrate the two-part wedding finale (part one aired last Wednesday), the cast and creators attended a wedding extravaganza on the Fox lot Monday night, complete with cocktail reception, swan ice sculptures and of course — cake.

Much of the cast expressed the pure emotion that surfaced while shooting, but the political aspect of airing a gay wedding on primetime television could not be ignored.

“Years ago shows weren’t allowed to show this kind of stuff on TV,” said Eric Stonestreet, who plays Cam. “It’s a great opportunity to be able to touch people not only with comedy, but be a cultural touchstone for what’s reflective in society now. And there’s nothing more topical than states legalizing and overturning gay bans on marriage.”

Modern Family Season Finale Review: “The Wedding (Part 1)” (Season 5, Episode 23)

14 May 2014 10:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

And we have made it – well, almost – to the climactic gay wedding promised in the first episode of season five, which was itself spawned from the decision to reinstate same-sex marriage in California. The wedding is a tried and true staple of beloved, long-running sitcoms, and splitting the big event into a two-episode finale (the second half will air next Wednesday, May 21) was a smart move.

The two-part finale of Modern Family should give the writers enough time to chart where the characters are at in this pivotal moment, which could be a midpoint of this blossoming series. However, there were probably too many cooks in the kitchen for part one, with episode scribes Abraham Higginbotham, Ben Karlin and Jeffrey Richman carving up the ensemble into six separate groups for 21 minutes, cluttering the very special episode.

The major story this week is between the almost husbands. Cam realizes that his »

Modern Family Review: “Three Dinners” (Season 5, Episode 13)

22 January 2014 9:41 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“Three Dinners” is the finest episode of Modern Family this season and one of the best half-hours in the show’s run. Its structure is simple, its humour more refined and less shrill than typical for the sitcom, and the mix of drama with levity balances out just right. Usually when three writers get credit for a television episode, the story could falter due to having too many cooks in the kitchen. Thankfully, this meal – just embrace the food metaphor for this dinner-themed half-hour – hits the sweet spot as it’s a delightful mix of sharp humour and insightful character study.

Abraham Higginbotham, Steven Levitan & Jeffrey Richman wrote the episode (with Levitan also serving as director). They wisely situate almost the entire show within three dinner spaces. Dinner is a time for a family to retreat from their hectic daily lives and catch up with each other, but the most »

Oscar Race Up in the Air? Space Thriller and Slave Drama in First-Ever Tie at Producers Guild Awards

20 January 2014 3:36 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Producers Guild of America Awards 2014: ‘Gravity’ and ’12 Years a Slave’ tie for Best Picture (photo: ‘Gravity’) Earlier this evening, January 19, 2014, the Alfonso Cuarón-directed Gravity and the Steve McQueen-directed 12 Years a Slave shared the Producers Guild of America’s Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures — in other words, the PGA’s Best Picture Award. That’s the first such tie in the PGA Awards’ 24-year history. A mix of adventure thriller and mother-love soap opera, Gravity was written by Alfonso Cuarón and his son, Jonás Cuarón. The Cuaróns’ film received ten Academy Award nominations, but failed to be shortlisted for its screenplay. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney star. Based on the story of a free black man forced into slavery in the mid-19th century United States, 12 Years a Slave stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt (who also co-produced the film), and »

The Producers Guild of America has accurately forecast the last six Best Picture Oscar winners, so it was good news for 10 films that were nominated today for the PGA’s Darryl F. Zanuck Award. While Gravity, 12 Years a Slave, and American Hustle were among the films that made the cut, Inside Llewyn Davis, The Butler, and Fruitvale Station did not.

Producers Guild Taps Top 10 Movies for Zanuck Award

2 January 2014 9:43 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Opting for a mix of specialty and studio titles, the Producers Guild of America has selected “12 Years a Slave,” “American Hustle,” “Blue Jasmine,” “Captain Phillips,” “Dallas Buyers Club,” “Gravity,” “Her,” “Nebraska,” “Saving Mr. Banks” and  “The Wolf of Wall Street” as nominees for its Darryl F. Zanuck award.

Megan Ellison, who produces through her Annapurna Pictures banner, was the only producer among the 28 nominees to receive two nominations — one for David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” and another for Spike Jonze’s “Her.”

The winner will be announced Jan. 19 at PGA’s 25th anniversary awards show at the Beverly Hilton Hotel following voting by the PGA’s 6,000 members.
