Emmy mystery: Why haven't cable comedies dominated like cable dramas?'

1 hour ago

Cable dramas have dominated the Emmys for almost a decade now, winning Best Drama Series for the last eight years in a row. None of the big four broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC) have even been nominated since 2011. But it's a completely different story on the comedy side; only one cable series has ever won Best Comedy: HBO's "Sex and the City" in 2001. -Break- Emmy predictions: Experts give 'Veep' 21-to-20 odds to win Best Comedy Series Broadcast comedies have started to recede at the Emmys in recent years – five out of the seven contenders this year are from cable or the internet – and it looks like either HBO's "Veep" or Amazon's "Transparent" will finally break broadcast's stranglehold on the top prize according to our racetrack odds, but why has it taken so much longer for cable comedies to catch on than cable dramas?

Oscar predictions: Experts divided over Leonardo DiCaprio, Eddie Redmayne, Johnny Depp and ...

3 hours ago

This year's Oscar race for Best Actor is heating up among overdue Leonardo DiCaprio ("The Revenant"), reigning champ Eddie Redmayne ("The Danish Girl") and several more formidable rivals, according to the collective predictions of 17 experts at Gold Derby. See each expert's individual rankings here. -Break- DiCaprio leads with 7 to 2 odds. He's suffered five Oscar losses (four as an actor, one as a producer) over his career, prompting our forum posters to wonder who the internet would obsess over next if he finally were to win for playing a fur trapper bent on vengeance in "The Revenant." This period piece, set in the Dakota Territory in 1823, was co-written and directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, who swept the Oscars last year with "Birdman." Chasing DiCaprio in the Best Actor contest is Redmayne (4 to 1 odds), who won just six months ago for his dramatic physical transformation of Stephen Hawking in &qu...' »

Venice film festival: 'Everest' could peak at Oscars

5 hours ago

In 1996, eight climbers lost their lives as they struggled to reach the top of the world's highest peak, Mount Everest. Baltasar Kormakur ("2 Guns") has turned their epic journey into the fall release "Everest," which has its world premiere Wednesday (Sept. 2) as the opening night attraction of this year's Venice film festival. This Universal release was shot on location in Nepal prior to the recent devastating earthquake. (Below, watch the gripping trailer for the 3D IMAX version due out Sept. 18.) -Break- Jake Gyllenhaal and Jason Clarke play Scott Fischer and Rob Hall, rivals who lead separate teams of amateur climbers to the top.

Oscar predictions: What will win Best Animated Feature?

8 hours ago

With just eleven films eligible for Animated Feature at this year's Oscars, there can only be up to three nominees. However, as in previous years, we may see more entries prior to the Oct. 30 deadline. If there end up being between 13 and 15 films in contention, there may be four nominees while 16 or more entries could mean five nominees as there were last year. -Break- But be warned, the  same scoring method that saw Best Song reduced to just two nominees four years ago, could limit this playing field as well. To reap an Oscar bid, an animated film must first pass muster with a screening committee. As part of the ongoing process to expand the number of members who take part in the process, only half of this committee will be drawn from the 400 members of the Animated branch. This also avoids the bloc voting that has besieged the Annie Awards. »
