‘Stranger Things’ Featurette: Winona Ryder On Her Harrowing, Emotional Performance In Her First Major TV Role

10 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Netflix’s new original series sci-fi horror series “Stranger Things,” about the disappearance of a young boy and the arrival of a telekinetic girl in a small town in 1980’s Indiana, has garnered critical acclaim for its performances and the numerous homages to 1980’s cinema. Written and directed by Matt and Ross Duffers, colloquially known as The Duffers, the series features actress Winona Ryder in a prominent role as Joyce Byers, a high-strung single mother whose son Will is the boy who goes missing. While the town is out looking for her son, she believes she’s talking to him through the lights in her house and is convinced that her son is alive and in danger. It’s an emotional, harrowing performance, especially for Ryder’s first major TV role. Watch a featurette below with Ryder, The Duffers, executive producer Shawn Levy, and fellow actor David Harbour discuss Ryder’s fearless performance. »

How ‘BoJack Horseman’ Achieved Perfection Without a Word

11 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: “BoJack Horseman” Season 3 is a feat of storytelling on both a serialized and episodic level. To honor the impressive accomplishment, IndieWire will be reviewing all 12 episodes over the next few weeks. Below, we delve into Episode 4.]

“You’ll find me in a sea of dreams where no one cares about my words.”

That Raphael Bob-Waksberg would make a largely silent episode of “BoJack Horseman” is as surprising as it is fitting, but the diegetic reason the episode features little dialogue (and none underwater) takes a well-executed punchline and turns it into transcendent TV. Revealed in the final seconds of “A Fish Out of Water,” we learn BoJack could have been speaking the entire time had he not been ignorant of how to use his underwater oxygen bubble. When he finally pushes his communication button and realizes the gaffe, BoJack lets out a frustrated “Oh, you have got to be kidd–” that’s cut off by the credits. While funny as a kicker to an episode building to a crescendo of mistakes, the choice also speaks to our antihero’s larger mental state and why he so »

25 July 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One of the joys of Netflix’s original series “Stranger Things” is the season’s sense of finality. The Duffer brothers excelled at crescendoing the season with action, emotion and heft, yet they left what they’ve referred to as “dangling threads” around the conclusions of Will Byers and Eleven, and we wanted to get in on speculating what Season 2 may answer and where the show could venture to. If you’ve finished the season, read on to find out what we’re asking about Season 2. If you haven’t checked out Season 1 yet, Do That and stop reading here!

Emmys 2016: The 31 Wildest Snubs & Surprises

 Snubs

Orange is the New Black

Not only was the (former) awards favorite from Netflix bumped out of the Outstanding Drama Series race (in favor of “The Americans,” which is important to remember during this mourning period), but even its back-to-back supporting actress winner — in comedy and drama — Uzo Aduba didn’t make the cut. “Orange” only snagged a nod for Outstanding Casting, which makes the exclusion of the cast members themselves all the more questionable.

The Good Wife

One of the more aggressive series in terms of campaigning these last few years, CBS’ beloved drama couldn’t break into the big categories for broadcast in 2016. It had the best shot of any offered by the big four as an overall series, but love was lost for the twice-nominated series. After all, it hasn’t been »

Winding Up ‘Downton Abbey’: 3 Weddings and a Day at the Races (Emmy Watch)

1 July 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In its sixth and final season set in 1925, “Downton Abbey” was all about change and adaptability, as the aristocratic Crawleys struggle to survive and the future of England is passed to the next generation.

The designers outdid themselves this final season with the Episode 7 set piece  at the spectacular Brooklands car race, and the finale showcasing the glorious weddings of Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery), Mrs. Hughes (Phyllis Logan) and Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael).

“The big event was the motor race, which came about with Mary falling for race car driver Henry [Matthew William Goode],” recalled production designer Donal Woods. “But could we get racing cars from 1925?”

After phoning around for two hours, Woods secured what he needed, including including two Bugattis, an Alpha Romeo and a Bentley worth £3m that won at Les Mans in 1923.

“We had a great time with boys with toys and it was a marvelous day with restored racing cars, »

Emmy Ballots Due: Which old fav would you sacrifice for a newbie?

27 June 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Emmy nomination balloting ends today for the 68th annual Emmy Awards. Cross your fingers that we actually get a few shakeups this year. Yes, cross your fingers even if you love all 10 of the shows that are normally swimming in nominations. Why? Well, the Emmys really should reflect how competitive television is and not suggest that there have only been 10ish good shows on the air for the past half decade plus.

Comment Party! On that note please do tell us in the comments which 3 of your old favorites that you still love you'd be willing to sacrifice for 3 who have not been recognized. Make your Sophie's Choice in the comments and let us all pray that Emmy voters do the same. Nobody deserves 5+ nominations for the same thing when that means someone else can't even get One for something arguably just as good! The catch is that you can't »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama

2 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Last year, Viola Davis made history as the first African-American woman to win the lead actress prize, and she could well repeat this year for her searing work on “How to Get Away With Murder.” With the exception of Elisabeth Moss, whose “Mad Men” ended its on-air run last year, Davis’ competition is likely to be the same: Claire Danes (“Homeland”), Taraji P. Henson (“Empire”), Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”) and Robin Wright (“House of Cards”).

Or, voters could choose to recognize Julianna Margulies, who has already won twice for “The Good Wife” — most recently in 2014 ­­— yet wasn’t even nominated last year. With the series finale still fresh in voter’s minds, they would be wise to reward Margulies for her seven seasons of remarkable work. Along those lines, Michelle Dockery, nominated in 2012, 2013 and 2014 for “Downton Abbey,” could slip back in now that the show has ended.

30 May 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ok, you can admit it now -- you loved "Downton Abbey" just like the rest of us. The show captured almost everyone's attention for as long as it was on the air and introduced TV devotees to the glory that is British period television. Once viewers found out that the updated versions of these (mostly) historical events were packed with salacious details, torrid affairs, sassy grandmas, and so much more, they were in for the duration.

Now that you're obsessed with British period shows, whether they're loosely based on true events, like "The Tudors," or are works of fiction set in historical times, similar to "Outlander" (sometimes referred to as a British-American show hybrid), get to know the handful of usual suspects that we can't help but notice make their mark in nigh every show.
