Judith Light’s Shelly Pfefferman was already one of the most enjoyable parts of “Transparent” season one, and the Amazon dramedy’s second season only gave Light more room to explore the lovably meddling mama. But her standout moment came — excuse the pun — early, when Shelly and her ex, Maura [Jeffrey Tambor], share a steamy encounter in the bathroom. On the page it looked like a daunting task, but the intimacy was crucial to the story. As usual, Light pulls the scene off with aplomb. “It took so much for me to get there not only personally and internally,” Light says. “The support that I got was so huge and so incredible.”
Season 2 ep. 2, “Flicky-Flicky Thump-Thump”

The Writers Guild of America has just announced the nominations for their annual awards for Best Screenplays (by writers who are guild signatories). That’s right, before you get nervous thinking that your favorite may have been left off the list, you must remember that the WGA is the group that is not all-inclusive and leaves out several of the top contenders each year due to them not being part of the guild or not following their very specific rules. For this reason, you won’t see Inside Out, The Hateful Eight, and Ex Machina in the Original Screenplay category or Room, Brooklyn, or Anomalisa in the Adapted screenplay category.
Taking a look at what’s left over for the nominations, we find many that were expected to make a showing, including Spotlight and Bridge of Spies for Original Screenplay, though they apparently had to sink to really low depths »
