Emmy experts predict Drama Supporting Actor: John Lithgow (‘The Crown’) nearly unbeatable as Winston Churchill

11 July 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

John Lithgow is already a five-time Emmy champ for “Amazing Stories” (1986), “3rd Rock From the Sun” (1996, 1997, 1999) and “Dexter” (2010), and now a victory for “The Crown” as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill seems like a no-brainer. According to our Emmy experts from major media outlets, Lithgow is so far out front […] »

However, some celebrities like to share their wealth by helping out the less fortunate. Here are five celebrities who are surprisingly charitable and some of the amazing things they’ve done that little of us actually know about: Gisele Bündchen Gisele Bünschen is more than just a pretty face.

It Came From The Tube: Dead Of Night (1977)

9 July 2017 9:58 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Dan Curtis and Richard Matheson fit together as comfortable as Pb &J, warm slippers on a cold day, and the best of TV horror. Dead of Night (1977) is the follow up to their critically acclaimed anthology Trilogy of Terror (1975), in which Karen Black starred in three distinct episodes of small screen mayhem. And much like that one, Dead of Night shall always be remembered for a terrifying final tale.

Originally broadcast on March 29th, 1977 on NBC, Dead of Night was Curtis and Matheson’s sixth collaboration of some sort, starting with Curtis producing the arrival of Kolchak and The Night Stalker (1972). And while this isn’t the best of their ventures together, solid performances and strong writing leading up make that final segment worth the wait.

Let’s dust off our TV Guide and see what the duo have in store for us:

This Restaurant Recreated the Extravagant, 10-Course Meal Served on the Titanic

24 April 2017 8:43 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

To honor the 105th anniversary of the Titanic ship sinking in 1912, Spring House Restaurant, Kitchen and Bar in Winston-Salem, North Carolina partnered with the Winston-Salem Wine Market to develop a dinner that reflects what the passengers ate while aboard the ship.

The prix-fixe meal, which cost $125 a head and included 8 wines, featured food inspiration from the original menus discovered after the ship sank. The 20 guests who attended the April 15th dinner also played Titanic trivia in between courses.

To make the robust three-hour meal a little more doable for modern times, the restaurant’s chef Tim Grandinetti told the Winston-Salem »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Strange Invaders (1983)

8 April 2017 8:53 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Long live Michael Laughlin. Two years after he released one of my favorite early ‘80s oddities, Strange Behavior (I wrote about it here), he was back to unleash the next chapter in a proposed ‘Strange’ trilogy, Strange Invaders (1983). And while the former is a tribute to Mad Scientist films of the ‘50s via an updated Slasher take, the latter tips its fedora to the great Alien Invasion films of the same era. It may not reach the same dizzyingly weird heights, but Strange Invaders is an affectionate romp that captures the feel of those bygone drive-in classics and solidifies Laughlin’s unique voice.

A co-production between Emi Films and Lone Wolf McQuade Associates, Strange Invaders was released by Orion Pictures in mid September stateside to positive reviews and lackluster box office. Returning only a quarter of its $5 million plus budget, this was the Way of the Laughlin – everyone liked his movies, »

‘Dimension 404’ Composer Cris Velasco on Crafting the Soundtrack for the Sci-Fi Anthology Series

4 April 2017 10:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Hulu has thrown its own hat in the anthology-series-ring with its new sci-fi series ‘Dimension 404.” A mashup of sorts between the “Twilight Zone” and “Black Mirror” — with a dash of snark — “Dimension 404” looks to deliver a fun, sci-fi experience and it’s even narrated by Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill.

Of course, every good onscreen sci-fi story needs a good score to set the tone, and “Dimension 404” has just that thanks to composer Cris Velasco.

“A good friend of mine, Alex Ferrari, has a company called Numb Robot that happened to be doing the color correction on this series. Alex is also a director, and I’ve scored three of his films. He mentioned my name to the producer of “D404″ and said they should look me up if they were still looking for a composer,” he told IndieWire of his initial involvement with the series.

“Weeks later, »

An Amazing Stories Remake is Something I Can Get Behind

14 March 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I think that there needs to be a distinction or at least a level of difference when it comes to revivals, remakes, and reboots.   I don’t really like lumping them all into one bucket because it can get confusing.  It’s one thing to take a movie or show from years past and brand it as something completely new.  That’s like 21 Jump Street the movie vs. the show.  It’s loosely based off the show but it’s completely its own thing.  Then there’s something like Total Recall which is essentially the same movie with the same names but “newer.”  Then you’ve
