Will Emmy fave Allison Janney win first (yes, first) Golden Globe thanks to 'Mom'?

14 December 2014 1:05 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Would you believe us if we told you that Allison Janney has six acting Emmys to her name, but not a single Golden Globe? Crazy, right? That could all change this year thanks to Janney's Globe nomination as Best TV Supporting Actress for the CBS hit sitcom "Mom." Could this be the year she finally wins that elusive Golden Globe? -Break- Golden Globes: Complete list of film and TV nominations For those keeping track at home, Janney won four Emmys for "The West Wing" in the early 2000s (two lead, two supporting) and then she had double wins this year for "Masters of Sex" (Drama Guest Actress) and "Mom" (Comedy Supporting Actress), bringing her total to six Emmys. Janney is now in third place with acting wins, behind Cloris Leachman with eight trophies and Ed Asner and Mary Tyler Moore at seven each. For such an Emmy legend-in-the-making, it's shocking »

15 Silly Things That Have Won Golden Globes

11 December 2014 3:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

No one would accuse the Hollywood Foreign Press Association of being a refined institution, but when you think about the kinds of movies, TV shows, actors, and actresses who've ended up with Golden Globes, it's actually staggering how the HFPA has gotten away with maintaining its image as a must-see event. Drunk people at the dais is, I guess, still a sufficient enough reason to tune in. Let's celebrate today's nominations with a fond look back at some silly things that have won Golden Globes. 1. "Green Card" (Best Motion Picture -- Comedy) What a classic. Nothing says "comedic wonderful good times" like Gerard Depardieu and Andie MacDowell mixing it up in an immigration romcom. Fun fact: My aunt saw this movie in Germany, noticed the reaction of the crowd, and was embarrassed on America's behalf. 2. Twiggy (Best Newcomer of the Year, Actress) I love Twiggy! She was great as a »

Exclusive! 'The Good Wife' Scoop: Legendary Actor Ed Asner to Play 'Disgusting' New Role

2 December 2014 12:30 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Good Wife may be hibernating this December, but that doesn't mean the series' casting scoop is snoozing as well.

A fresh face will be joining the hit CBS drama in 2015, and he's sure to shake things up in Alicia's (Julianna Margulies) quest for State's Attorney.

Legendary actor Ed Asner, known for his roles on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Up, Lou Grant, and many more pop culture staples, has been tapped to join the smash series in an upcoming episode, ETonline exclusively reports.

Watch: Josh Charles on His Shocking 'Good Wife' Exit

The 85-year-old will play Guy Redmayne, a mega-donor to Democratic causes, who turns out to be, well for lack of a better word… disgusting. (This is quite a character leap considering Asner consistently graces our TV screens in the holiday season as Santa Clause on Elf!)

The exact date of Asner's Good Wife debut is to be determined, but we know »

The 50 Funniest Women of the Past 50 Years: #40-31

14 October 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny.  We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »

TV Review: AOL’s ‘Makers’

29 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Makers,” an AOL-backed initiative to chronicle women’s strides in traditionally male-dominated fields, kicks off with a decidedly entertainment-industry flavor, with the first two hours devoted to “Women in Comedy” and “Women in Hollywood.” Those broad topics, admittedly, represent a lot to chew on in just an hour, but this PBS series does a credible job of racing through highlights while enlisting well-placed voices — including, in the premiere, the late Joan Rivers — to address the inroads women have made, and the doors that remain tough to kick open.

While future chapters include “Space,” “Politics,” “Business” and “War,” the first two are closely related, and are probably the most accessible.

“Comedy is masculine,” Rivers explains of the standup field, and the filmmakers (the first two docs are narrated by Leslie Mann and Julia Roberts, respectively) chronicle how Phyllis Diller broke through by lampooning herself, giving way to Rivers and the many who have followed. »

Is Television 'A Woman's Medium'?

5 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

After winning two Emmys last week, Allison Janney said something that should be considered a truism but isn't. Explaining her successful return to TV after a sojourn in movies, the 54-year-old told Variety, "Television is a woman's medium."

Since "The West Wing" went off the air eight years ago, Janney has landed a number of supporting character roles in movies, mostly mom parts. Back on TV, however, she won Emmys this year (her fifth and sixth) for stretching to play two very different parts: a woman trying to salvage a difficult marriage in the premium-cable drama "Masters of Sex," and a recovering alcoholic whose daughter and granddaughter have followed in her reckless footsteps on the network sitcom "Mom."

Janney certainly seems to be an example of how television is friendlier to 54-year-old actresses than film is. But is television really "a woman's medium"?

Actually, you could argue that television has »

Q&A: Jim Parsons and Bob Newhart on Actor Chemistry and the State of Sitcoms

7 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On “The Big Bang Theory,” Dr. Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) idolizes his childhood hero, Professor Proton (Bob Newhart), much to the professor’s dismay. In real life, though, the admiration is a bit more mutual — and that was clearly evident when the two Emmy-nominated actors (Parsons for “The Big Bang Theory” and “The Normal Heart”; Newhart for “Big Bang”) met at the Paley Center in Beverly Hills for a conversation with Variety. As it turns out, the pair have more in common than brilliant comic timing: Parsons grew up in Houston, where Newhart recorded the 1960 album that launched his career, “The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart.” And on stage, both played the role of Elwood P. Dowd, a sweet man who befriends an invisible 6-foot rabbit in “Harvey.”

Variety: How did you two first meet?

Parsons: At the table read.

Newhart: Actually, we met at the Emmy Awards before that. »
