1 hour ago

Actresses Kerry Washington, Geena Davis, and Amy Madigan are challenging incumbent Annette Bening to be a governor for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Each branch of the film academy has three governors on staggered terms, so one of them is up for election every year. It is Bening's turn to either be re-elected or replaced by this Friday's deadline. Results will be announced next week. The other two acting branch governors are Ed Begley, Jr. and Tom Hanks. Cheryl Boone Isaacs, the current Academy president overseeing the Oscars, is on the ballot again for the public relations branch. If she does not get re-elected, she will only be a one-term president. Producers branch governor Gale Ann Hurd is being challenged by Albert Berger, Jennifer Fox, Jennifer Todd, and Gail Mutrux. Writers branch governor Phil Alden Robinson faces off against Larry Karaszewski, Callie Khouri, and John Logan. Directors »

What are Top 10 Emmy contenders for Best Multi-Camera Comedy Editing?

9 hours ago

Nowhere in the title of Best Multi-Camera Comedy Editing or in the rulebook does it state that variety shows may submit in this category, but "The Colbert Report" and "Conan" opened the floodgates last year when they became the first such programs to do so. -Break- Top 10 Emmy contenders for Best Single-Camera Comedy Editing Both reaped nominations, pushing out two-time winner "Two and a Half Men" and "2 Broke Girls," which were nominated the year before. But even if variety's eligibility in this category is suspect, some kind of a shakeup should be in order. Including those two variety contenders, there were just 14 entries on this ballot last year. 2013's nominees were: "The Big Bang Theory" (season 6 – third nomination) "The Colbert Report" (season 9 – third nomination) "Conan" (season 3 – first nomination) "Hot in Cleveland" (sea »

What are Top 10 Emmy contenders for Best Single-Camera Comedy Editing?

12 hours ago

Of last year's nominees for Best Single-Camera Comedy Editing, only "Modern Family" is back on the ballot. "The Office" and "30 Rock" have ended, and "Arrested Development" was off the air in the past season. After being snubbed in its first two years, "Louie" was finally nominated in this category last year, but has bizarrely not submitted any episodes for consideration this time around. 2013's lineup was as follows: "Arrested Development” (season 4 – sixth nomination, 2004 winner) "Louie" (season 3 – first nomination) "Modern Family" (season 4 – seventh nomination, 2010 winner) "The Office" season 9 (eighth nomination, 2007, 2013 winner) "30 Rock" season 7 (seventh nomination, 2009 winner) -Break- Top 10 Emmy contenders for Best Single-Camera Drama Editing This year, "Modern Family" has entered ..." »

Will 'Modern Family' win fifth straight Emmy like 'Frasier' or lose like 'Mad Men'?

8 July 2014 12:55 PM, PDT

Last year, "Modern Family” won Best Comedy Series for the fourth time in as many years. However, it claimed just one other Emmy -- Directing -- from its series low eight nominations. Is the TV academy starting to tire of this ABC laffer as it did with "Mad Men," which claimed the top drama prize for four years running before being shut out of the Emmys? Or will "Modern Family" tie the record set by "Frasier" with five wins in a row? That show too suffered a slump at its fourth Emmys, winning just two of nine bids, but staged an staggering comeback the following year.

8 July 2014 8:50 AM, PDT

Look for "True Detective," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and "Orange is the New Black" to be among the new TV series breaking into the Emmy derby in a big way when nominations are announced on Thursday morning. -Break- "True Detective" gets 4-to-1 odds to win Best Drama Series, according to the odds set by the predictions of 14 Experts from TV Guide, Huffington Post, USA Today and other top media participating at Gold Derby.

Are we crazy for underestimating 'Silicon Valley' at the Emmys?

8 July 2014 5:55 AM, PDT

Our odds have HBO's freshman laffer "Silicon Valley" down in ninth place for Best Comedy Series at this year's Emmys but the paycaster has a history of pulling off surprises in this race. Just two years ago, it reaped bids for a pair of first-time contenders -- "Veep" and "Girls" -- which we had ranked eighth and tenth respectively.  -Break- Can 'Veep' or 'The Big Bang Theory' dethrone 'Modern Family'?

7 July 2014 8:39 PM, PDT

We knew from the beginning of the season that eliminated "Bachelorette" contestant Eric Hill had died in a paragliding accident while the season was still in production, and his fraught final appearance on the show was followed by a brief and slightly uneasy tribute; how do you honor a man who was dismissed from the show so angrily?
