London — In another strong year for British television, historical drama “Wolf Hall,” Shane Meadows’ “This Is England ‘90” and “Peter Kay’s Car Share” came up trumps at the BAFTA Television Awards, which unspooled on May 8 in London’s Royal Festival Hall.

The ceremony, which was hosted by Graham Norton, saw BBC2’s “Wolf Hall” win best drama series as well as leading actor for Mark Rylance’s depiction of Thomas Cromwell’s rise to power through Henry VIII’s royal court.

Upon receiving the award for best drama series, helmer Peter Kosminsky attacked the U.K. government’s treatment of the BBC, warning that its future was “under threat, make no mistake about that.”

Comedian Ronnie Corbett of ‘The Two Ronnies’ Dies at 85

31 March 2016 10:42 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Scottish comedian Ronnie Corbett, best known as one-half of British comedy television staple “The Two Ronnies,” died on Thursday at age 85.

Ronnie Corbett Cbe, one of the nation’s best-loved entertainers, passed away this morning, surrounded by his loving family,” his publicist said in a statement to the BBC.

His partner on “Two Ronnies,” which aired for 16 years, was Ronnie Barker, who died in 2005. They were two of the U.K.’s most beloved comedians. Their signature sign-off, “Now it’s goodnight from me,” “and it’s goodnight from him” became known to a wide audience even after their show ended in 1987.

Many comedians took to Twitter to remember the late comedy star. British actor John Cleese, who worked with Corbett on “The Frost Report” in the 1960s, tweeted, “He had the best timing I’ve ever watched. He was a great, kind mentor and a wonderfully witty companion.”

In Sync: The Power of Body Language and Sarcasm in "Bridesmaids", "The Heat", and "Spy"

19 January 2016 7:14 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

More than once, the female heroines in Paul Feig’s comedies are accused of getting too emotional. A heinous example comes in 2013’s The Heat, when good cop/bad cop partners Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) and Mullins (Melissa McCarthy) are verbally accosted by a male colleague after a botched sting operation: “We don’t need the two of you coming in with your estrogen and flying at full speed, sticking out in the middle of broad daylight, fucking things up for us!” The threat of being upstaged is always palpable in Feig’s films. Take, for instance, the dueling engagement party speeches by new frenemies in 2011’s Bridesmaids, or the dismissive antics of Jason Statham’s overly aggressive and insecure secret agent in 2015’s Spy. Women betray each other out of fear and self-doubt, while men demean women once their power is threatened. Sarcasm and snarky jokes ensue, usually revolving around physical appearance and gender roles. »
