Emmys: Julia Louis-Dreyfus Breaks Record for Most Wins in the Same Role

17 September 2017 7:38 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus won her eighth Emmy award on Sunday, taking home her sixth straight trophy for her performance on “Veep.” The actress breaks the record for most primetime Emmy awards won by an actor for the same role, besting “Murphy Brown’s” Candice Bergen and “The Andy Griffith Show’s” Don Knotts. She also ties “Mary Tyler Moore Show” star Cloris Leachman for most acting trophies overall, with eight total (Louis-Dreyfus has two other wins for “Seinfeld” and “The New Adventures of Old Christine.”) The win came late in a show full of political statements, and Louis-Dreyfus kept it going by. »

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Makes Emmy History as Performer With Most Awards for Same Role

17 September 2017 7:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Julia Louis-Dreyfus won the comedy lead actress trophy for her role on “Veep” at the 69th Annual Emmys in Los Angeles, Calif.

Louis-Dreyfus began her acceptance speech by thanking the “fine, powerful, and funny ladies” in her category. “You are superb and I love you,” she said.

From the stage, she also took a jab at President Donald Trump. “We did have a whole storyline about an impeachment,” she said of the next season of “Veep,” “but we abandoned that because we were afraid someone else might get to it first.”

And with this win, it’s official that history has been made. This is Louis-Dreyfus’ sixth win for portraying former-Veep-turned-former-potus Selina Meyer on the HBO political comedy, which makes her the performer with the most Emmy awards for the same role. Last year she was tied for that title with Don Knotts and Candice Bergen, who had five Emmys for their roles on “The Andy Griffith Show »

The Number of Emmys Julia Louis-Dreyfus Has Won May Surprise You

14 September 2017 3:50 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If awards were handed out for best worst dancing, Julia Louis-Dreyfus would have an extra Emmy to add to her mantle. But even without the bonus statuette for Elaine Benes's epic moves, the former Seinfeld star has plenty of statuettes to her name. Last September, Louis-Dreyfus actually broke a record by earning her sixth Emmy for lead actress in a comedy and her eighth overall (including one for producing). Prior to that win, the actress had maintained a three-way tie with Candice Bergen and Mary Tyler Moore for most lead actress wins. Louis-Dreyfus starting racking up Emmys in 1996, when she won outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series for Seinfeld (she'd been nominated each year since 1992). Surprisingly, that was her only solo win for the sitcom; she was nominated seven times between 1992 and 1998. Her next win would be a full decade later for The New Adventures of Old Christine.

Shelley Berman, Stand-Up Comic and ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Actor, Dies at 92

1 September 2017 7:49 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Famed stand-up comic Shelley Berman, who recently played Larry David’s father on “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” has died. He was 92.

Berman died early Friday morning due to complications from Alzheimer’s Disease at his home in Bell Canyon, Calif., his publicist confirmed to Variety.

The Grammy winner and Emmy-nominated actor was one of the most successful stand-up comedians of the 1950s and ’60s. His 1959 live record, “Inside Shelley Berman,” was the first comedy album to be certified gold (with more than 500,000 sales) and was the first non-musical recording to win a Grammy Award. Two other albums, “Outside Shelley Berman” and “The Edge of Shelley Berman,” also went gold.

Berman was the first stand-up comic to perform at Carnegie Hall. He appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show” more than 20 times and was a guest on shows hosted by Steve Allen, Jack Paar, Dinah Shore, Perry Como, Andy Williams, and Dean Martin.

It Came From The Tube: Revenge! (1971)

13 August 2017 2:07 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Sometimes you almost think they don’t want you to watch. I’m not sure a more generic title could be conjured up than Revenge! (1971), an ABC TV movie that sounds like it should sit next to nacho chips and beer on the discount supermarket shelf. But, of course, it’s the ingredients that count, and with a stellar cast and a taut script by Psycho screenwriter Joseph Stefano, Revenge! has enough flavor to entertain the more discerning palette.

Originally airing on November 6th, this ABC Movie of the Weekend was up against NBC’s Saturday Night at the Movies and CBS’s Mary Tyler Moore Show / The New Dick Van Dyke Show, but won out again. Revenge! may be a generic title, but ABC’s brand is strong.

Why Bob Newhart Wanted to ‘Intentionally’ Break Boundaries in Television

9 August 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On Sept. 16, 1972, CBS premiered the beloved sitcom “The Bob Newhart Show,” starring the popular comic as Chicago psychologist Dr. Bob Hartley.

The funny and whip smart sitcom only received four Emmy nominations during its six seasons. But Tuesday evening at the Wolf Theatre in North Hollywood, the TV Academy paid homage to the show —which is celebrating its 45th anniversary — with a sparkling and hilarious conversation between 88-year-old Bob Newhart and Conan O’Brien.

“I’m so glad about tonight,” proclaimed Newhart on the academy’s recognition of the series’ milestone anniversary.

O’Brien, who had worked with Newhart on a comedy bit at the 2006 Emmy Awards, said he grew up watching “The Bob Newhart Show” on Saturday nights after “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and before “The Carol Burnett Show” with his brothers and father.

Peter Bonerz joined Newhart and O’Brien about an hour into the 90-minute tribute. “You »

Freebie and the Bean

8 August 2017 12:40 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Here’s how one pushed the limits of good taste in 1974. James Caan and Alan Arkin run the gamut of racist, raunchy, sexist & homophobic jokes as bad boy cops breaking the rules, and director Richard Rush delivers some impressive, expensive action stunts on location in San Francisco. Does it get a pass because it’s ‘outrageous?’ The public surely thought so. If the star chemistry works the excess won’t matter. With Valerie Harper, Loretta Swit and Jack Kruschen.

Norman Lear Reflects on His ‘All in the Family’ Emmy Wins

3 August 2017 8:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

the early 1970s was one of the most transitional eras in TV history, and the transition was in full swing by the time the 1971 Emmy Awards took place. Nowhere was this more evident than in the comedy categories, with Ed Asner and Valerie Harper nominated for their supporting roles in “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” alongside Gale Gordon for “Here’s Lucy” and Agnes Moorehead for “Bewitched.” If anyone had any question as to which direction the tide was turning, though, it was answered when “All in the Family” was named not only for new series but also best comedy. Series creator Norman Lear — who, at age 95, remains as busy as ever, serving as an executive producer on the Netflix reboot of his classic ’70s series “One Day at a Time” — reflects on winning his first and second Emmy.

For the 1971 Emmy Awards, Johnny Carson personally suggested the idea of having the show open with the Bunkers »

"Difficult People" Returns Soon!

21 July 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here, pumped for the return of one of my favorites. Have you caught up to the delightfully inappropriate Diffifult People on Hulu? You have a few weeks to do so before the third season arrives on August 8.

The comedy series stars Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner as two acid besties trying to get ahead in entertainment and usually screwing themselves over with their own potty-mouthed self-absorption. Imagine The Mary Tyler Moore Show as told John Waters and you get pretty close to its sweetly caustic hilarity. The show has gotten most of its hype from its super cool and unexpected lineup of guest stars, but what really makes it special is the no-filter friendship at its core. That friendship you have where you can say literally any bitter truth and laugh at its stupidity? No pair on television embodies that better than Julie and Billy.

Take a look at the coming farce! »

Hulu’s Best TV Shows About Women Beyond ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ That You Can Stream Right Now

19 May 2017 4:46 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If you haven’t taken advantage of all that Hulu has to offer lately besides “The Handmaid’s Tale” – which everybody should really, really watch right now – then you’re missing out.

“The Handmaid’s Tale’ has been a groundbreaking series for the streaming service, thanks to its foreboding story about a near future in which a portion of the United States has been turned into a theocracy. This new world of Gilead subjugates women and makes the fertile ones become breeders for high-ranking officials. Moving performances by Elisabeth Moss, Samira Wiley, Yvonne Strahovski, O-t Fagbenle and Alexis Bledel have made this series a must-watch.

Not only does Hulu have strong original programming like “The Handmaid’s Tale,” but it is one of the best places to watch shows that are currently on TV now, which makes cord-cutting that much easier. It also has an impressive catalog of past shows that are well worth revisiting. »

Betty White's Reason For Never Remarrying After Her Husband's Death Is Truly Beautiful

23 April 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Betty White has fit a whole lot of life into her 95 years, and she's still going strong. The star is a Hollywood icon, with roles in The Golden Girls and The Mary Tyler Moore Show among her most popular. But of all her successes, the actress credits her marriage to Allen Ludden as her favorite. Betty, who was previously married to Us Army pilot Dick Barker in 1945 and Hollywood agent Lane Allen from 1947 until 1949, met her third husband when she appeared as a guest on his game show, Password, in 1961. Ludden actually proposed to Betty twice before she finally accepted and the two were married in 1963. Ludden tragically passed away from stomach cancer in 1981 (Betty was 59 years old at the time), and she has never remarried. When asked if she would ever consider tying the knot again during an interview with Larry King, Betty said, "Once you've had the best, »

Book Excerpt: “Hot Pants in Hollywood: Sex, Secrets & Sitcoms”

21 April 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Mary Tyler Moore and Susan Silver

The following is excerpted from Susan Silver’s “Hot Pants in Hollywood: Sex, Secrets & Sitcoms,” which will be released May 2.

(Author’s Note: Iris Rainer Dart, my then writing partner who later went on to write “Beaches,” had gotten pregnant and we had stopped working together. It was 1971. We were managed by comedy legend Garry Marshall and had written one script for “Love, American Style.”)

After Iris and I split up as a writing team, I was starting all over again, trying to “make it on my own” as those famous “Mary Tyler Moore Show” lyrics said. I told Garry that I’d seen her new show and knew I could write it. How did I know? It’s called “chutzpah,” French for “balls.” And I had some, it seems. Actually, she was situated in the Midwest, worked in a small local TV station, and so had I, both those things. It seemed like fate.

Because Garry knew the guys there, they were willing to take his recommendation about me, though I had nothing to show them written alone. I rehearsed over and over in the car as I drove to the studio. I’m sure passersby thought I was a crazy person as I animatedly “delivered my material” checking my expressions in the rear view mirror. I was nervous but determined. I had wanted this so long and now was my big chance.

I pitched three stories to Jim Brooks and Allan Burns, the creators of the show, a little intimidating though nice, and David Davis and Lorenzo Music, the story editors. Lorenzo doubled as the voice of the marvelous droll Carlton the Doorman on “Rhoda,” as well a lot of other voice over work. He and David were in my corner from the beginning, realizing how hard this was for a new writer. They laughed whole heartedly, and I kept eye contact with them as I “performed.” They were so supportive and sweet, and I am forever grateful.

I left the office with the promise of an assignment if they got picked up for a full season. Which, fortunately they did. Surprisingly enough, CBS was not sure about the show and initially stuck it on a Tuesday. Believe it or not, the reviews were not good. Remember the times: It was not common for a woman in the early seventies to not want to be married first and foremost. This character’s fiance had dumped her! To be a career woman with stirrings of feminism, sticking up for one’s self, was not expected in a TV heroine. Here was an actress who had been the beloved wife of Dick Van Dyke! Now she was at work, forming a family with colleagues, and starting friendships with women who were not always that friendly! Radical thinking, particularly about Mary, America’s sweetheart, who every man loved and wanted to protect and every woman wanted to be. This could be dangerous to women viewers and their roles in society.

Fortunately, for me and the show, Fred Silverman, the whip smart exec who came in, moved it to Saturday where it became part of the must-see lineup, later with “Mash,” “Bob Newhart,” “All the In the Family,” and “Carol Burnett.”

That lineup — along with the growing Women’s Movement, which latched on to the show as important — got the Mary Tyler Moore franchise a lot of attention. In comedy as in life, “timing was everything.” I should have been terrified, writing this script alone. But ignorance is bliss.

I always say, “I started on the top and it was downhill after that.” That wasn’t really true, but the Mtm experience was so far superior to any other. Other shows would give you a twenty-minute story meeting and send you home to write. Then sometimes they’d wonder why the script was “not what they had in mind.” At Mtm, once I got my assignment, we had an all day story meeting while we fleshed out the story together. This gave a detailed blueprint from which to begin.

Frankly, if I’d had a struggle to get an assignment, I don’t know if I would have been able to hang, make it at all. I may have been gutsy, but I was not resilient, or so I thought back then.

Susan Silver wrote for some of the most iconic sitcoms of all time, creating laughs for “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “The Bob Newhart Show,” “Maude,” “Partridge Family,” and more. She was one of the first females in an industry dominated by men. Now she dishes about the highs and lows of her comedy career and life in her memoir, “Hot Pants in Hollywood: Sex, Secrets & Sitcoms.”

Book Excerpt: “Hot Pants in Hollywood: Sex, Secrets & Sitcoms” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »
