So the big Emmys don't air until next Sunday night and at Moviefone we will have, of course, full coverage. But last night the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out, for the people that are largely responsible for making these shows that you absolutely love -- you know, the behind-the-scenes talent tasked with conceptualizing and realizing your favorite programs. Oh -- and some guest actor and actresses awards were handed out, so there's that too!
In the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category Uzo Aduba took home the prize for "Orange is the New Black." Since we are, very shamefully, one of a handful of Americans who hasn't seen a single second of "Orange in the New Black," this doesn't mean a whole lot to us, but we are very happy for her! (We promise, we'll watch soon.) For the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, the »

The first round of 2014 Emmy Awards were handed out at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony on Saturday (August 16) night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The ceremony, which precedes the Monday, August 25 Primetime Emmy Awards telecast, offered signs of hope for a number of drama and comedy hopefuls. Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black," for example, won Emmys for editing, series casting and for Uzo Aduba, who is considered a guest actress for the purposes of these awards. No other comedy series was able to build any other momentum going into next week's show, with "The Big Bang Bang Theory," "Nurse Jackie," "How I Met Your Mother" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" grabbing isolated tech prizes and Jimmy Fallon winning the Guest Actor in a Comedy Series award for the second time in three years for his "Saturday Night Live" hosting duties. The two guest acting awards on the drama side »

John Travolta is as fascinating and complex a member of the Hollywood fraternity as you could wish for. Iconic performer, experienced pilot, vocal Scientologist and mangler of pronunciation of Idina Menzel.
He has managed to appear in not just some of the best known, but also some of the best-full-stop films of the past forty years – Saturday Night Fever, Carrie, Grease, Pulp Fiction, Get Shorty, Face/Off, The Thin Red Line, Hairspray and the upcoming Gummy Bear The Movie – whatever one might think of the consistency of his output (and there have been some horrendous misfires), it is hard to imagine too many actors playing Danny Zuko, Vincent Vega, Castor Troy, Sean Archer, Chili Palmer and Edna Turnblad with equal conviction.
After the temporary resuscitation of Look Who’s Talking turned out to be a false dawn, Tarantino did Travolta a favour of inestimable proportions by casting him in Pulp Fiction, »

Menachem Golan, the colorful, free-spending Israeli-born producer and director whose Cannon Films yielded hundreds of productions starring the likes of Sylvester Stallone and Chuck Norris before going bust, died Friday in Israel, according to Haaretz. He was 85.
Golan, whose first name is sometimes spelled Menahem, was famous for his overblown pronouncements and business plans, and partnered for many years with his cousin, Yoram Globus. The duo started their U.S. career making fast-paced action exploitation titles starring the likes of Norris and Charles Bronson. Then, in the ’80s, Golan and Globus headed the ill-fated public company Cannon Entertainment, which began spending more on films such as “A Cry in the Dark,” “Cobra,” “Sahara” (1983), “Over the Top” and “Bolero” with such actors as Stallone, Brooke Shields and Bo Derek.
For a decade Golan dominated the market portion of the Cannes Film Festival, booking hundreds of pages a day in trade papers »

Kathie Lee Gifford has written “Today: The Musical,” an 18-minute extravaganza expected to air this year. Will it be the story of a morning shows locked in a rivalry with “Good Morning America,” starring anchors who keep smiling even through off-camera drama? Gifford isn't uncorking the details just yet. The show was inspired by NBC's successful “The Sound of Music” and upcoming “Peter Pan” adaptation, starring Allison Williams, daughter of NBC anchor Brian Williams.

Allison Williams has been cast as Peter Pan in NBC's upcoming Peter Pan Live!, a sort of sequel production to last year's The Sound of Music Live! Williams' Girls co-star Lena Dunham could not be happier: Williams was born to play the role: "Thrilled to be playing Peter Pan live on NBC in December. I've been rehearsing for a Really long time," she captioned this adorbable Instagram pic. But what if it were her Girls character, Marnie, who were cast instead? We investigate (translation: basically write fan fiction). Marnie would audition with some jazzy rendition of "Forever Young." Obviously, it would be the Jay Z version, and obviously, it would be kind »
Just as Mary Martin did long ago, Girls' Allison Williams will play Peter Pan in NBC's Peter Pan Live! (exclamation mark theirs, not ours). Get that girl a flying harness! (exclamation mark ours). She'll go up against Christopher Walken's likely kooky Hook and her casting will guarantee even more internet coverage than greeted The Sound of Music Live! (again, exclamation point theirs). "Dreams do come true!" tweets NBC: It's really hard not to imagine that this is Marnie Michaels's dream somehow coming to life through a wacky NBC/HBO crossover. I guess it's Williams's, too: »

The live musical will be broadcast on Thursday, Dec. 4.
“We couldn’t be happier that Allison Williams is our Peter Pan,” NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement. “She’s a lovely rising star on the award-winning show Girls — where she occasionally shows off her incredible vocal talent — and we think she will bring the perfect blend of ‘boyish’ vulnerability and bravado to save the day against Christopher Walken’s powerful Captain Hook.”

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards nominees are out, and Beyonce is leading the way with eight of her own. But which categories will she win? Eminem and Iggy Azalea are on her heels with seven. But is Azalea's "Fancy" a good video on it's face? HitFix crits Melinda Newman, Louis Virtel and Katie Hasty tackle three questions with three very different answers on the VMAs below, like... will we ever see Lady Gaga in the count again? Beyonce leads all nominees with eight. How many will she go home with? Melinda Newman: To paraphrase “The Sound of Music”: How do you solve a problem like Azalea? Bey may have the most nominations, but Iggy Azalea is hot on her trail with seven and they face off in a number of key categories including video of the year, best female video, and best collaboration. The winners are fan voted, so »

Let us play the “Name Game”, shall we? Since we all are part of the experience here at the entertainment website known as Sound on Sight maybe we should pay homage to our online destination by celebrating it in an unconventional manner? Specifically, we can recognize Sound on Sight by acknowledging movie names that contain the words “sound” and “sight” in their titles.
However you may perceive this experimentation as being rather gimmicky and silly please realize that this movie column is also a means to recognize a few movie titles that are unfamiliar or perhaps a first-time discovery to some of you out there that never heard some of these cinematic selections. There may be a couple of well-known films in the bunch but collectively the features being mentioned in Sound on Sight: Top 10 Random “Sound” and “Sight” Movie Titles are aptly presented based on the theme at hand. »

Encouraged by the success of The Sound of Music Live!, NBC is getting the pieces together for more live musical telecasts in the near-ish future. One of those is Peter Pan, and the first star has just been revealed. Christopher Walken will play Captain Hook in the show, which is expected to air in December. […]

The legendary actor has been cast by NBC for their live staging of the classic musical.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt said of Walken, "He's one of the most unique actors in our business… He might really just be a song and dance man at heart... This might be the first tap dancing Captain Hook you've ever seen."
The live performance, based on the book and the musical by J.M. Barrie, will be a follow-up to NBC's recent live performance of The Sound Of Music, which was economically very successful despite lackluster critical response.
This will also not be the first time Peter Pan has been put up live by NBC. In 1955 they staged a live production that drew staggeringly huge ratings – around 65 million »
It's been firmly proven that Christopher Walken has some serious moves. The actor is now set to put those dance skills back to work in the role of Captain Hook in NBC's live musical broadcast of Peter Pan.
Christopher Walken Goes Off the Cuff: The Extended Version
NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt announced the casting news at the Television Critics Association press tour on Sunday, Entertainment Weekly reports. "He might really be a song and dance man at heart," Greenblatt said of Walken. "He’s fearless as a comedic actor and always comes to play. »

From Pennies from Heaven (1981) to Hairspray (2007) to Jersey Boys (2014) to appearances on NBC’s own Saturday Night Live.
