What happens if you round up the nation's most brilliant scientific minds, seclude them in a makeshift city in the middle of the desert, and drown their lives in secrecy? These are the questions addressed in Manhattan, the new historical drama from creator Sam Shaw (Masters of Sex) and director Thomas Schlamme (The West Wing). Manhattan offers a semi-fictionalized version of the infamous Manhattan Project - the clandestine research and development project that resulted in the creation of the atomic bomb. While the events of the show are based on history, Manhattan largely steers clear of iconic figures like J. Robert Oppenheimer and Leslie Groves, and focuses instead on the interpersonal drama between fictitious characters as they contend with the costs of secrecy and isolation. I recently visited the set in Santa Fe, New Mexico where the labs, homes, and barracks of Los Alamos have been recreated from the ground up. »

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 nominations for the 66th Emmy Awards were released this morning, and I’m surprisingly satisfied with the results. Though there were an overabundance of nominations for the so-so Netflix series House of Cards and not nearly enough (read: any) for BBC America’s criminally-underrated Orphan Black, including for lead actress Tatiana Maslany, the categories shook out in a mostly predictable, if fair way.
Of course, heavyweights Breaking Bad and True Detective will be duking it out in the Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series categories (the latter of which saw both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson swipe nominations). Other shows which scored big include American Horror Story: Coven, dominating the Miniseries categories, Game of Thrones, which has the most nominations at 19, and Fargo, trailing just behind with 18.
I’m particularly pleased to see Idris Elba squeak into Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie »

2014 Emmy Nominations
In addition to receiving a best drama series nod, Game of Thrones received nominations in the supporting actor and actress categories for Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey. Fellow HBO show True Detective was also nominated in the drama series category, as were its stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in the best actor category.
Other drama series recognized are Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Mad Men and Netflix’s House of Cards, for which both Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright received nods. Though their shows weren't nominated, Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife), Claire Danes (Homeland) , Kerry Washington (Scandal), Mandy Patinkin (Homeland) and Jon Voight (Ray Donovan) received drama acting nods.
The Hundred Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared was first described to me as “a European Forrest Gump with lots of explosions,” and I was sold! After watching it, I’m pleased to report that this description is dead on. Adapted by director Felix Herngren from Jonas Jonasson’s bestselling book of the same name, The 100 Year Old Man is a loose-limbed, historically sprawling shaggy dog of a movie. Enjoyment is predicated on your acceptance of the ridiculous and, most importantly, of you being able to appreciate the sight of a terrified skinhead being squashed to death by an elephant’s butt.
We open with the titular 100-year-old Allan Karlsson (Robert Gustafsson) mourning the death of his beloved cat at the hands of a fox. Clutching a stick of dynamite in his withered hand, he shuffles through the snow and plants it in the ground. Boom. No more fox. »

We’re in desperate need of a new dramatic period piece to fill the void that’s been left by Mad Men, which is currently on an annoyingly long hiatus between halves of its final season. Luckily, Wgn may have just what we need, as seen by the debut trailer for their enticing new drama series, Manhattan.
Manhattan chronicles the lives of the men who worked secretly on the famous Manhattan Project in Lost Alamos, New Mexico in the 1940s, and how building the first atomic bomb behind closed doors affected their lives and families. The series was created and written by Masters of Sex alum Sam Shaw, with The West Wing and Parenthood director Thomas Schlamme at the helm. John Benjamin Hickey, Olivia Williams, Daniel Stern, Ashley Zuckerman, Rechel Brosnahan, Katja Herbers, Alexia Fast, Christopher Denham, Harry Lloyd, Michael Chernus and Eddie Shin star.

Wgn has released the debut Manhattan trailer for the network’s upcoming drama series about the making of the world’s first atomic bomb. While I was initially as skeptical of a Wgn drama series as you probably are, this trailer actually doesn’t look half-bad. Moreover, the show has veteran director Thomas Schlamme (The West Wing, Parenthood, Sports Night) at the helm and Masters of Sex alum Sam Shaw as the creator and writer. The story takes place in 1940s Los Alamos, New Mexico and revolves around the men working secretly on the Manhattan Project as well as the toll it takes on their lives and family. The Manhattan Project is really one of the most fascinating stories in modern history, and while there are a few moments of melodrama in this first trailer, it looks like a pretty promising take on the subject matter. Hit the jump to watch the first Manhattan trailer. »
