The Winners of the Creative Arts Emmys Are Here

18 August 2014 8:16 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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 first round of 2014 Emmy Awards were handed out at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony on Saturday (August 16) night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.  The ceremony, which precedes the Monday, August 25 Primetime Emmy Awards telecast, offered signs of hope for a number of drama and comedy hopefuls.

Emmy Nominees on How to Succeed in Voiceover

11 August 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

All voiceover jobs begin the same way for Maurice Lamarche. “They all involve a microphone and a room with carpet on the walls,” Lamarche said Aug. 6 at a Screen Actors Guild Foundation panel honoring nominees for best animation voiceover performance at the upcoming Creative Arts Emmy Awards. “That’s where I start from.” Lamarche (“Futurama”) was joined in a two-hour conversation at the SAG Foundation Actors Center in Los Angeles by Seth Green (“Robot Chicken”) and Stephen Full (“Dog With a Blog”), as well as moderator James Arnold Taylor. The voice behind multiple characters on “Futurama,” Lamarche was asked about the difference between doing an animated series and doing commercial work. He noted an episode of the animated series “The Critic,” in which he voiced 26 characters. “I look at it as a chance to play and bounce all over the place and change vocal tensions,” Lamarche said.

The Simpsons - Futurama Crossover and Character Death Planned This Season

2 August 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I haven’t watched a full season of The Simpsons for quite a few years now, but my I’ll dip my toe in every now and then to see if it’s worth taking the plunge and keeping up with the show again. Unfortunately, I just haven't felt the magic of seasons past when I tune in to watch new episodes. The show has piqued my interest recently, though, with the 5-minutes of footage Fox released for their upcoming Family Guy crossover. And there is yet another crossover coming this season that is too irresistible to pass up.

The Wrap reports that this November The Simpsons will have a Futurama crossover that will feature voice actors Billy West, John Dimaggio, Katey Sagal, Maurice Lamarche, Phil Lamarr, Lauren Tom, and Tress MacNeille. There’s no word on how their characters will cross paths with the Simpson clan, but we’re »

25 July 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego - Come on, kids, check out what Tom Kenny has to say about self-actualization. The famed voice actor behind "Spongebob Squarepants" -- and "The Powerpuff Girls," "CatDog," "Transformers: Animated," "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," "The Boondocks," "Futurama," "Winnie the Pooh" and on and on -- was on hand at San Diego Comic-Con, talking characters and talking like his characters. As the new sequel "The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water" comes down the pipeline, Kenny has been reflecting on his favorite roles. His longtime yellow underwater pal has "huge positivity and being comfortable with who he is." His other favorite? The Ice King, on Cartoon Network's "Adventure Time," who's clouded by "self-loathing... I've never thought about that!" Maybe Kenny should take on Jekyll and Hyde next.

10 Cartoon Voices That Are Actually Impressions of Other Actors

24 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

In music there are only 12 notes, so it's no wonder so many songs sound the same. But what about someone's voice? The way someone speaks is not bound by any kind of scale or music theory, rather it's the sum a person’s upbringing, their physicality, and their personality. So why do so many cartoon characters sound so eerily familiar? In this list we highlight 10 cartoon characters whose voices (and often their likenesses) are based on other actors. We also mention 5 other cartoon voices that are impressions in the bonus sections of related entries. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, these actors have been thoroughly praised by some of the best.

Sleepy Hollow

Speaking at the TCA's this week, the producers of Fox's supernatural procedural hit "Sleepy Hollow" say they don't plan to shake-up the successful formula anytime soon. For starters, the Abbie and Crane relationship won't devolve into flirting/underlying sexual tension for a good while as yet.

Producer Len Wiseman says: "[Abbie and Ichabod] have a respect for each other. We're really not playing their relationship on the romantic side". The expanded second season will also boast new villains including the Pied Piper, a Succubus and a Wendigo. Timothy Busfield will guest star as Benjamin Franklin, while Sakina Jaffrey will play no-nonsense Sheriff Leena Reyes. [Source: The Live Feed]

Cuckoo

"Twilight" hunk Taylor Lautner tries something very different in the upcoming second season of BBC3's comedy series "Cuckoo". Lautner takes on the role of the hippie son of Andy Samberg's character from the first season, and the network has just launched the first trailer today. »
