Ah, that cool cat Don Draper never lets down his guard! When I chatted with Jon Hamm on the red carpet at the "Mad Men" bash Wednesday night at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, I asked him which one of the upcoming final episodes will be his submission in Emmy's Best Actor race. He demures, but does say that he'd like to pick up this discussion with us again after we've seen them all. -Break- When I chatted with "Mad Men" creator Matt Weiner, I asked him some rather unfair questions, including: which single Emmy victory was more important than all of the others?

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

26 March 2015 6:35 PM, PDT

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. »
