‘Saturday Night Live,’ ‘Westworld’ Top 2017 Emmy Nominations

13 July 2017 8:44 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s “Westworld” and NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” tied for the most nominations for the 2017 Emmy Awards, earning the most with 22 each.

HBO’s drama scored with viewers, averaging 12 million per episode across all its platforms — the most ever for a freshman series on the cabler. It’s been renewed for a second season, though no premiere date has been announced.

NBC’s veteran sketch show, “SNL,” similarly enjoyed a ratings surge this season, fueled by the swirl of headlines from the election and the Trump Administration, and star turns from Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump and Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer (both were nominated). This past season ranked as its most-watched in 23 years.

Netflix’s freshman hit “Stranger Things,” meanwhile, landed 19 nominations, with noms for best drama, supporting actress Millie Bobby Brown, and supporting actor David Harbour, among others. “Feud: Bette and Joan” also nabbed 18 noms, thanks to lead actresses Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon and »

2017 Emmy Nomination Predictions: Which New Shows Will Break Through?

10 July 2017 12:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There were few surprises at the 2016 Emmy Awards, with most trophies going to the expected winners. But voters had a few shockers in store: recognizing Tatiana Maslany for her lead role on “Orphan Black” and Rami Malek for his lead role on “Mr. Robot.”

That gives hope that the Academy may continue to embrace even more new, diverse programming when the Emmy nominations are unveiled on July 13. It may have taken four years for “The Americans” to finally break through, but it would be a shock if this year’s crop of worthy freshmen series didn’t get recognized by the Academy.

We’ll find out who’s officially made the cut when nominations are announced on Thursday at 8:30 a.m. Pt, but here, Variety breaks down the major contenders in all of the biggest categories.

Why Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner Are the Best Indie Producers in the World Right Now

10 July 2017 9:36 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Working Title producers Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, whose latest hit is Edgar Wright’s wheel-and-disc-spinning breakout “Baby Driver” (June 28, Sony), which has tracked $64 million worldwide to date.

Bottom Line: This brainy duo with plummy British accents have been turning out a consistent slate of smart global hits since the ’80s. The London-based co-chairmen of Working Title boast the best taste in the business. They chase mainstream quality fare. That’s their gig. But even so over the years, partnering with Universal Pictures, with freedom to greenlight movies up to $35 million, their films have grossed an impressive almost $7 billion dollars worldwide.

The Coen Brothers’ Rules: 4 Filmmaking Practices That Give ‘Fargo’ Its Cinematic Consistency

15 June 2017 2:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Although the Coen Brothers jump to a new genre with each new film, their approach to filmmaking and story is so distinct it’s nearly become a genre in itself. And what’s most remarkable about Noah Hawley’s limited series ‘Fargo’ on FX isn’t that it’s a clever homage to the filmmaking duo (which it is), or that the show has become its own story universe (it’s that, too).

However, its biggest achievement may be that the show’s visual presentation and cinematic style remains at such a high level of quality and consistency, despite having different directors. Even showrunner Hawley – the show’s principal writer and a creator of FX’s “Legion” – isn’t a consistent presence on set.

‘Fargo’: Noah Hawley Explains the Season 3 Connections to Past Seasons, ‘The Leftovers,’ and ‘The Big Lebowski’

10 June 2017 7:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The third season of “Fargo” has seen its fair share of strange connections. Some have been carefully orchestrated, others happy accidents, and still more entirely inexplicable. So when Noah Hawley joined director John Cameron and cast members Michael Stuhlbarg and Mary McDonnell for a post-screening panel session at the Atx TV Festival, the man who improbably built an award-winning TV series out of an untouchable Oscar-winning film was ready to identify his intentions.

Below, we’ve outlined the various connective tissue between scenes, characters, and themes of Season 3 with what Hawley said inspired them.

‘Fargo’ at Atx: Noah Hawley Talks Future Seasons and More

9 June 2017 5:32 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Austin, Texas — It was the last question of the Atx Television Festival’s “Fargo” panel, but probably foremost in the minds of the FX drama’s fans: Will there be a fourth season of the program?

Executive producer and showrunner Noah Hawley said he didn’t currently have an idea for a fourth season, but he certainly sounded open to a return to the wintry, crime-ridden Midwestern landscapes the show has explored in its first three seasons (the current season wraps up June 21).

“Here’s the thing — I wasn’t sure there was going to be a second season” after the first, and after the second was in the can, he was similarly unsure that there would be a third. Each time around, he explained, it took him some time to come up with the core concepts for the next season. He noted that FX executives were patient with that process, and »

How Carrie Coon Quietly Became TV's Most Valuable Player of 2017

3 June 2017 7:18 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

If you've been watching television for the last few months, you have probably seen Carrie Coon cry. This is not unusual, considering that, throughout her tenure on the three seasons of The Leftovers, HBO's bleak, brilliant drama has required the actress to turn on the waterworks numerous times. Also, she's an excellent crier, the kind who can run the scales from single-silent-tear-running-down-a-cheek to full-out crumbling, crinkle-faced ugly sobbing. A wise showrunner knows that when you've got someone on your team who can bring it like that on a series about trauma and tragedy, »

Need to catch up? Check out our previous Fargo recap here.

The reverberations from last week’s Fargo fatality spread far and wide this week — and gave us our first tangible connection to previous seasons.

Nikki’s still waiting in that motel room, nursing her bruises with ice, unaware that Ray’s lying dead in a pool of blood. The cops knock down her door and haul her into the station, where Moe coldly drops a photo of Ray’s corpse in front on her. She’s stunned, but maintains her poker face (or maybe her bridge face?) while Moe »

Cinematographers Take Risks on TV With Moody Images

31 May 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s no accident that today’s television renaissance has coincided with a golden age of TV cinematography. The moody, nuanced imagery that now appears on small screens supports cinematic themes, top-notch acting and innovative directing, and audiences have responded.

Rob McLachlan, a contributor to HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and “Westworld,” and Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” says digital cameras are another major factor in TV pictures.

“When I first shot HD for TV back around 2002, I realized that a monitor on the set showing precisely what you’re recording made it possible to safely go a lot darker,” he says. “On film, only the most experienced DPs could really work on the edge of underexposure. A slightly uncalibrated lens combined with a variation in the film stock and a weak chemical bath in the lab could spell disaster. Now, with digital and a decent Dit [digital imaging technician] or monitoring system, it’s really what you see is what »

26 new UK TV shows to look out for

31 May 2017 7:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jun 1, 2017

Some exciting new UK drama and comedy commissions are making their way to TV over the next year or so…

We know, we know. You still have two episodes of Fargo season two before you can think about starting season three. You’ve already fallen behind on American Gods. Your planner memory is chock-a-block with Big Little Lies and that Oj Simpson thing and some Spanish prison series your workmate bullied you into recording. You’re struggling to make time for Twin Peaks. New Game Of Thrones is just around the corner. And guess what, Netflix UK have just added a whole new season of It’s Always Sunny, those sods. You need a list of new TV show recommendations like you need a hole in the head.

And yet, as long as they keep making them, we’ll keep recommending them. »
