Everyone talked about her character's expansion in season 2, but to me Claire felt just as hidden as she was in season 1, bar Chapter 17. The writers must have started planning this season after Robin Wright won the Golden Globe. Claire is actually relevant to the plot in season 3, and Wright has equal screentime to Kevin Spacey. I love it! KylieistBoi: Just watched the first 4 episodes, it is going really well so far. My favorite one is the Russian centered episode, with Pussy Riot. »

News Nuggets: Will the Oscars return to just five Best Picture nominees each year?
19 hours ago
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences "is seriously considering a return to its former policy" of just five Best Picture nominees at the Oscars. Rules were changed the past six years to allow up to 10 nominations in that top category, but "a significant fraction" of members wonder if that strategy has failed. This year's show featured eight contenders in that category. In addition, several board members say that too many Best Picture nominees have "watered down the prestige" without boosting Oscar telecast ratings. A decision could happen as soon as March 24 when the governors next meet. Hollywood Reporter -Break- Neil Patrick Harris isn't certain he would want to host the Oscars again after last month's first time helming the ceremony.

3 March 2015 7:32 PM, PST
Amelia Heinle won Best Supporting Actress at the 2014 Daytime Emmys for "The Young and the Restless," a victory that came as a surprise to most of our predictors, who had favored either her co-star Elizabeth Hendrickson or Jane Elliot ("General Hospital").

Will Michael Keaton get revenge on Eddie Redmayne at next year's Oscars?'
3 March 2015 5:25 AM, PST
One of this year’s most heated Oscar races was for Best Actor, a neck-and-neck marathon that ultimately ended with Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”) upsetting early front-runner Michael Keaton (“Birdman”). The two may very well go head-to-head again next year for films that have the potential to be major players: “The Danish Girl” and “Spotlight.” -Break- In “The Danish Girl,” Redmayne portrays artist Einar Wegener, one of the first known recipients of male-to-female sex reassignment surgery. The film, helmed by Academy Award-winning director Tom Hooper ("The King's Speech," 2010), is a true-life story right up Oscar alley, and the first images of Redmayne in drag hint at a transformative performance of the same ilk that led to awards-glory for “The Theory of Everything.” Should he win, he’d be only the sixth actor to win back-to-back Oscars in the same category, ...' »
Emmys cliffhanger: Will 'Empire' and Cookie Lyon reign supreme?
3 March 2015 5:19 AM, PST
If the Emmys were an empire, cable television and streaming services would reign supreme as the kings and queens, while poor network TV would be the hard-working yet forgotten serfs.

Now that Fox's "Empire" has crushed ratings records, can this Best Drama Series contender save all of network TV at the Emmys? -Break- Related: Marcus James Dixon's Emmys predictions for Best Drama Series: 'Empire,' 'Better Call Saul,' ... Thanks to the onset of cable and the changing of viewing habits, it's been four years since a network production was even nominated as Best Drama Series ("The Good Wife"). And, shockingly, the last time a Big Four network drama won the top prize was a decade ago when another Fox series, "24," claimed gold in 2006.

Oscars mystery solved: How 'Big Hero 6' beat 'Dragon 2' for Best Animated Feature
3 March 2015 4:00 AM, PST
That Best Animated Feature win by “Big Hero 6” over “How to Train Your Dragon 2” was the single biggest upset of Oscar night per Gold Derby’s racetrack odds but it should not have been. The snub by the academy of “The Lego Movie,” which still went on to win the Producers Guild and Critics’ Choice Movie Awards for Best Animated Feature, certainly threw a wrench into things. However, the subsequent congregation around “How to Train Your Dragon 2” was statistically unsound. -Break- The vast majority of experts, editors and users predicted “How to Train Your Dragon 2” on the basis of two precursors with spotty track records while ignoring a different pair with staggering accuracy. I knew -- as did three Experts, one Editor, three of the Top 24 Users and 20% of all Users -- to focus on the BAFTAs and American Cinema Editors nominees, not the winners of »
