News Nuggets: It's bad news for 'Frozen' fans'

1 hour ago

Disney chairman Alan Horn reveals bad news for "Frozen" fans: there are no concrete plans for a sequel. Speaking at the Tribeca Film Festival on Tuesday, he said, "We're not demanding speed. We're demanding excellence." The Oscar-winning animated film is now the sixth highest-grossing movie of all time with $1.129 billion worldwide. In North America, it is the third biggest Disney animated film behind "The Lion King" and "Toy Story 3." The company is planning a Broadway version, and co-star Kristen Bell would be interested in that role on stage. She said many in the cast are Broadway veterans, so "I certainly hope they try and wrangle us." The cast also included Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, and Jonathan Groff.

Gold Derby Emmy Mvp: Nina Dobrev more than just eye candy on 'Vampire Diaries'

6 hours ago

(Pictured left to right: Nina Dobrev as Katherine, Nina Dobrev as Amara, Nina Dobrev as Elena) On "The Vampire Diaries," Nina Dobrev has played so many characters -- and versions of characters -- it's a bloody travesty she's never been recognized by the TV academy. For those keeping track at home, over the first five seasons Dobrev effortlessly portrayed human Elena, human Katherine, vampire Elena, vampire Katherine, Elena pretending to be Katherine, Katherine pretending to be Elena, Katherine's soul inside of Elena's body and original immortal Amara. Whew -- did we forget anybody? -Break- The Emmys usually go crazy over actors and actresses who undergo multiple personalities or play various characters (like Toni Collette for "United States of Tara") so why is Dobrev the unfortunate exception to the rule?

'Dancing with the Stars' poll: Did judges get it right on 'Party Night'?

8 hours ago

The judging on "Dancing With the Stars" sparked disagreement from our readers on "Disney Night." In last week's poll, most respondents disagreed with James Maslow's perfect score, and our commenters had a few choice words for judges about some of their other calls: -Break- 'DWTS' recap: Meryl Davis rules 'Party Anthem Night,' but party's over for Drew Carey Amy: "If anyone is 'judges' pet,' it's [Amy Purdy].

Daytime Emmys mystery: Are Supporting Actress winners cursed?

10 hours ago

Repeat winners are commonplace at the Daytime Emmys, but there's a strange anomaly when it comes to the Best Supporting Actress race: only three women have ever won it twice. -Break- Daytime Emmys: A real cliffhanger ... and real soap opera? Julia Barr was the first. As Brooke English on "All My Children" she competed for Emmys eight times spanning 21 years, alternating between categories. Though she lost all six of her lead-acting nominations over the years, she won both of her supporting bids (1990 and 1998), so for her the category proved to be a blessing rather than a curse. Unlike Barr, Gina Tognoni accomplished the feat in just three years. She joined "Guiding Light" as Dinah Marler in 2004 and played the role until the show's cancellation in 2009. During that time she earned three straight nominations for Best Supporting Actress (2006-2008), winning her first and last bids. Nancy Lee Grahn had the long. »

'Game of Thrones': Best (and dumbest) moves in 'Breaker of Chains' episode

14 hours ago

After last week’s jaw dropping purple wedding episode, “Game of Thrones” saw a slight bump in its ratings with 6.59 million viewers tuning in this week to see who was behind the murder of the king. Episode three -- "Breaker of Chains" -- turned up the heat on 2011 Supporting Actor Emmy champ Peter Dinklage (who has odds of 4/1 to win a bookend). And Emilia Clarke (who has odds of 9/1 to reap a repeat bid for Supporting Actress ) continued her chain-breaking rampage in the east. With so much skin in the game let’s have a look at my moves of the week.  -Break- Watch 'Game of Thrones' stars tattle: Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster Waldau Moves of the Week 1.

Gold Derby Emmy Mvp: 'Review' is best new comedy of the year

14 hours ago

Review” is high-concept, but hard to define. It looks like a sketch show, but it is serialized. It also looks like a mockumentary, but it has a sketchier fourth wall than “Modern Family.” Each episode of “Review” begins with a letter from a viewer who is curious about a specific life experience. Whatever it may be, host Forrest MacNeil (Andy Daly) embarks on that experience so that he can rate it out of five stars. Each episode contains two or three segments and is entirely fictional. -Break- hour series premiered on Comedy Central back on March 6 to little fanfare. Indeed, Metacritic tallied reviews from just 10 critics, compared to 38 for “Fargo." So, it comes as quite a surprise that this is television’s best comedy series in years. Comedy series often take a season to find themselves but “Review” arrived fully formed and confident. Seven of nine episodes in, this i. »

News Nuggets: Aaron Sorkin apologizes for his mistakes on 'The Newsroom'

22 April 2014 5:10 PM, PDT

Aaron Sorkin is now apologizing for his HBO drama series "The Newsroom." At the Tribeca Film Festival on Monday, he said, "I think you and I got off on the wrong foot with 'The Newsroom' and I apologize and I'd like to start over." The main criticism he discussed was about setting the show in the near past so that his news anchor and staff could relate to real events. Even though the show won an Emmy for Jeff Daniels as Best Drama Actor last fall, the series will end after its upcoming third season. He added that he wants this final season to start things over so that he can "implement the lessons he learned over three years of writing it." L.A.

Chandler Massey ('Days of Our Lives') could make Daytime Emmys history with third win

22 April 2014 4:32 PM, PDT

Chandler Massey is accustomed to breaking barriers on "Days of Our Lives." He played Will Horton as the character came to terms with his sexuality and became the first person to win Best Younger Actor at the Daytime Emmys for playing a gay role. He left the NBC soap in January 2014 and was replaced by actor Guy Wilson, but Massey has one more chance to make history on his way out the door. -Break- Why hasn't Alison Sweeney ('Days') ever been nominated for a Daytime Emmy? Massey won the Younger Actor prize twice in a row (2012, 2013), and if he wins again this year he would be only the second actor to win the category three times – following Jonathan Jackson, who won for "General Hospital" in 1995, 1998, and 1999 – and the first to do so in consecutive years. Winning three in a row is a challenging feat in any category. Even »

'Dancing with the Stars' recap: Meryl Davis rules 'Party Anthem Night,' but party's over for Drew Carey'

21 April 2014 9:52 PM, PDT

Meryl Davis and pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy were disappointed with their fifth-place scores last week, which threw them off their game during training for "Party Anthem Night," but you wouldn't know it from their tango; a week after James Maslow scored the first perfect 40 of the season, they delivered a flawless dance of their own and received 10s across the board. -Break- Make your predictions for Emmys & reality TV shows – click here Drew Carey wasn't so lucky, however.

News Nuggets: Does 'quirky' and 'bizarre' Johnny Depp need a career makeover?

21 April 2014 10:04 AM, PDT

Susan Wloszczyna wonders if Johnny Depp can transcend his onscreen quirky roles to have a career resurgence. His latest film bomb this weekend was "Transcendence," where his role as a cyber-age Dr. Frankenstein "barely registers a ripple on his scale of bizarre characters." He has made the quirky and bizarre work before in such films as "Pirates of the Caribbean," "Edward Scissorhands, "Ed Wood," "Sweeney Todd," and "Alice in Wonderland." But more recent efforts such as "The Lone Ranger and "Dark Shadows" are hurting him as a box office draw. She concludes that Depp "is in danger of becoming a cliche - which is not easy to do when you are so unique. By taking on every nut-job role that comes along and always straining to be original, the actor is losing his ability to surprise his fans and to be taken seriously." Thompson on Hollywood. -Break- Veteran producers Ne. »
