News Nuggets: Oscar producers Craig Zadan, Neil Meron officially will not return next year

3 hours ago

Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron confirm they are not returning to produce next year's Academy Awards ceremony. The duo produced the past three telecasts but hinted earlier this month they would not be back. The Board of Governors met Tuesday night to discuss last month's show, but no decision was made by that group on whether they would be asked to return. The choice was theirs, and Zadan now reveals to Pete Hammond that they had a three-year agreement from the beginning to produce the Oscars to create continuity but that it was never announced publicly. The two men will now develop new Broadway productions and at least one more live musical event for NBC (after "The Sound of Music" and "Peter Pan Live"). Deadline -Break- Anne Thompson is already offering Academy officials her idea of an Oscars producer: funnyman Judd Apatow. She says the director/writer/producer »

'Looking' cancelled by HBO, but farewell movie could end up winning Emmys

25 March 2015 12:22 PM, PDT

Wouldn't you know, just two days after writing an article about why "Looking" deserves a third season and tons of Emmy nominations comes news that HBO is discontinuing the series, with plans to wrap up the story with a TV movie. That's bittersweet for fans like me who felt "Looking" was just coming into its own. But there's a big silver lining: the farewell movie could be an Emmys darling. -Break- Emmys Mvp: 'Looking' for nominations for one of TV's best shows How could that be? After all, the series didn't get a single Emmy nomination in its first year, and its second season may have just as much of an uphill battle (click here to see its odds for Best Comedy). Why would a TV movie be any different? The fact is there are far fewer eligible TV movies and miniseries these days than there are continuing comedies and dramas, »

Emmys Mvp: Michael Kelly steps out of the shadows as 'House of Cards' fixer

25 March 2015 10:48 AM, PDT

During the first two seasons of "House of Cards," Michael Kelly provided solid work as Doug Stamper, the go-to fixer for now-president Frank Underwood, but in season three, Kelly outdoes himself, turning the role into one of the most consistently exciting characters on television. The Emmys have ignored the actor in the past, giving al their attention to stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, yet any voter who watches any one episode from this season would be crazy not to award Kelly with his first nomination for Best Drama Supporting Actor. -Break- Emmys Mvp: Kristen Schaal is secret weapon in success of 'The Last Man on Earth' But Kelly is currently ranked in eighth place by our Top 24 Users and ninth by All Users. Why so low? Blame it on a lack of name-recognition and heavy competition in the category: Kelly has to compete against last year's nominees »

'The Voice' poll: Who was best in Tuesday's knockout battles?'

24 March 2015 6:55 PM, PDT

According to your very own predictions, Blake Shelton did the unthinkable on Tuesday's knockout round of "The Voice." He kicked country singer Cody Wickline off the NBC reality show in the evening's first battle. -Break- In last week's poll (see link below), you predicted overwhelmingly that Wickline would be Shelton's champ for this season. On Tuesday, he faced off with the song "Til My Last Day" (Justin Moore) against fellow country artist Cory Kent White, who sang "Live Like You Were Dying" (Tim McGraw). Team Blake will move forward with White since no rival coach used a steal on Wickline. Related: Will Cody Wickline be the champ for coach Blake Shelton? During these knockout rounds this week and next, each coach has Nate Ruess (.fun) as an advisor and one steal to save a performer from elimination. Both Adam Levine and Pharrell Williams used up their only remaining steals for this season on Monday. »

Warner Bros. is now negotiating with four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper to direct and star in a remake of the classic film "A Star Is Born."

He and the studo would like to pursue Beyonce to play the lead character, a young woman "whose dreams of stardom are helped by a self-destructive icon whose best days are behind him."

Emmys Mvp: Kristen Schaal is secret weapon in success of 'The Last Man on Earth'

24 March 2015 12:28 PM, PDT

Hey, Emmy voters: I realize you'll soon have a ton of screeners to watch and performances to consider for this year's nominations, but if you ignore Kristen Schaal's hilarious performance on the new Fox hit "The Last Man on Earth," you'll end up regretting it. You really will. As Carol Pilbasian, the neurotic, by-the-book, wacko wife on the apocalyptic romcom, Schaal is the show's secret comedic weapon. I find myself laughing out loud every time she's on screen, whether she's paired up with leading man (and creator) Will Forte, new girl on the block January Jones, or even when she's all alone making raisin balls. -Break- Join the 'Last Man on Earth' chat going on right now in our feisty forum Despite her importance and screen time on the high-concept series, we're still not sure which category Fox is going to campaign Schaal for Emmy consideration: Best Comedy Actress or Best Comedy Suppor. »

'Dancing with the Stars' poll: Who was the best on 'My Jam Monday'?

24 March 2015 9:19 AM, PDT

"Dancing With the Stars" continued its 20th season with "My Jam Monday," when the contestants danced to some of their favorite songs. Most of the celebs stepped up their game and improved from the premiere episode, but while there were plenty of hits (including top-scorer Nastia Liukin), there was one catastrophic miss (Chris Soules, getting the lowest judges' score of the season). -Break- However, maybe you think that Soules, despite his low score, was actually the high point of the evening with his cha cha routine. Or perhaps double-amputee Noah Galloway blew you away with his perseverance even though he was third from the bottom on the leaderboard.

Emmys Mvp: 'Looking' for nominations for one of TV's best shows'

24 March 2015 6:38 AM, PDT

Like many others, I felt an initial skepticism when "Looking" debuted on HBO in 2014: does this group of hip young urbanites truly represent me and the "gay experience"? I put that in quotes because it's a nebulous term, suggesting a single representative idea of gay life that doesn't really exist. -Break- Emmys Mvp: 'Rectify' should put SundanceTV and star Aden Young on the map I think such knee-jerk defensiveness is inevitable for any creative work targeted at an underserved audience. With so few opportunities to see yourself reflected in the media you consume, there's pressure on any given project to be equally representative of all, which of course is impossible. Even the most inclusive TV show can't be everything to everyone. Nothing good ever is. (It should be noted, though, that "Looking" has turned out to be one of TV's most inclusive shows in terms of race, »
