Women at the Emmys: The Behind-the-Scenes Nominees We’re Rooting For

25 August 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Discussing the representation of women in Hollywood is never, you know, a fun topic, especially when it comes to below-the-line departments. In 2016, there are still glaring examples of a lack of progress for women.

While an improvement over years past, here’s just a quick sampling of accomplishments women were not recognized for: narration, music composition, writing in many categories, stunt coordination… There are plenty of categories, as well, where only one or two women were nominated, often with a male partner — such as Writing for a Comedy, where the sole female nominee is Sharon Horgan alongside Rob Delaney for “Catastrophe.”

But rather than dwell on that, let’s acknowledge some of the accomplished nominees who have a chance to be recognized for their achievements this year. Because regardless of gender, they’re awesome.

Outstanding Direction for a Limited Series

Great Job, Internet!: Ron Livingston attained perfection with his first and last YouTube video

19 August 2016 2:15 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Sometimes, one definitive masterpiece is all that a true artist needs. In the world of punk rock, The Sex Pistols never really recorded a proper follow up to 1977’s Never Mind The Bollocks, so that LP stands alone in their discography. And industrial filmmaker Herk Harvey has but one narrative feature movie to his credit: 1962’s Carnival Of Souls. So it is with actor Ron Livingston and YouTube viral videos. The actor, probably still best known as slacker Peter Gibbons in Mike Judge’s Office Space, has a YouTube channel of his own, brilliantly called Livingstown. Said channel boasts exactly one upload: a 27-second-long clip from 2010 entitled “Keyboard Cat Redux.”

Donning cat ears and a shapeless blue shirt, all while nimbly manipulating fuzzy little puppet arms through the puffy sleeves of the garment, the Band Of Brothers star pretends to play a brief but jaunty keyboard solo ...

Lifetime Orders JonBenét Ramsey TV Movie

10 August 2016 10:33 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Lifetime has ordered a television movie about the JonBenét Ramsey murder case, “Who Killed JonBenét?”

The cable net announced the project on Wednesday. Production has begun and the movie will air later this fall.

Lifetime’s movie marks the third JonBenét Ramsey television project recently announced, joining CBS’s six-part docuseries and Investigation Discovery’s three-part special.

With the 20 year anniversary of Ramsey’s murder coming up this December, the six-year-old beauty queen’s tragic story has become the new TV trend, following the first half of the year that was consumed with O.J. Simpson.

Ramsey’s infamous 1996 murder remains unsolved, after her body was found in her Colorado home. The story became a global phenomenon and interest in her death has not faded overtime, especially with the recent surge of true-crime television programming.

The TV movie will provide a closer look into what exactly happened the day after Christmas 1996 when Ramsey was found beaten and strangled »

Highlander: The Series and why you should watch it

2 August 2016 3:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Scott Varnham Aug 15, 2016

It may be so 90s it hurts, but the Highlander TV series spin-off is still very much worth a watch...

You may have seen a few articles about the original Highlander movie recently, as it’s just celebrated its 30th anniversary. Lots of things have turned 30 this year. Just a few examples: The Legend Of Zelda, Pixar, the M25. Fine institutions, but did any of them spawn a mostly superior TV series in 1992? I think not. Don’t let the fact that it was made in the 90s put you off. People still watch Buffy.

The series follows the adventures of Duncan MacLeod (cousin of the movie’s Connor). Explaining the premise of Highlander in complex detail would make me go far over my word count, so I’ll be brief. Basically, immortal sword fighters fight to decapitate each other in order to be the last one »

Michael Fassbender: The Next 'James Bond' ?

11 July 2016 6:08 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Oscar-nominated actor Michael Fassbender ("12 Years A Slave"), at 39-years old, has the looks, chops and killer instinct to play the next big screen 'James Bond', now that dog-faced Daniel Craig has officially left the '007' movie franchise:

"To be honest with you", said Fassbender, "I think they should reboot the 'James Bond' series and go back to his origins as a soldier.

"I’ve got a great idea for it actually, so (producer) Barbara Broccoli talk to me..."

The stage-trained actor's feature film debut was the fantasy war epic "300" (2007), playing a 'Spartan' warrior.

Prior to that, he appeared in the HBO TV miniseries "Band of Brothers" (2001) and the Sky One fantasy drama "Hex" (2004–05).

He first came to prominence for his role as 'Ira' activist 'Bobby Sands' in "Hunger" (2008), for which he won a 'British Independent Film Award'.

Subsequent roles include playing a 'Royal Marines' lieutenant in "Inglourious Basterds" (2009)...

Who Will Play Pennywise the Clown in Stephen King's It?

2 June 2016 12:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros.' adaptation of Stephen King's timeless novel It has had more than its fair share of ups and downs, but now it seems the project is finally on the right track. Andres Muschietti stepped in last year to replace the departing Cary Fukunaga, who had been attached since 2012. And the studio set a September 8, 2017 release date in April for the project. Today we have word that the filmmaker is actively casting for the iconic clown Pennywise, with one new contender entering the mix.

After Cary Fukunaga left the project, it wasn't clear if Will Poulter, who had already come aboard to play Pennywise, was staying on board or not. A new report from Bloody-Disgusting reveals that Andres Muschietti is holding his own auditions for the role, which include make-up tests. One contender that has read for Pennywise is Kirk Acevedo (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes »

Are you ready for the summer? (2016 edition)

31 May 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Calendar-wise, summer doesn't begin for another few weeks. As far as the TV business is concerned, though, summer began at 11:01 p.m. on Wednesday night, when the 2015-16 network TV season officially ended. The break used to be a little cleaner, but as cable and streaming outlets premiere shows year-round, and as the broadcast networks have become a bit less bound to the rules of the calendar, there's more overlap than ever before. HBO's dynamite Sunday lineup has another month to go, late spring broadcast premieres for shows like Person of Interest and Houdini & Doyle mean they have a few more weeks in them, and the next few months will see a mix of new and returning scripted material across every kind of TV provider there is in 2016. The next few days, weeks, and months will feature the return of some of the best shows on television, including UnREAL (Lifetime, »

Matthew Broderick: ‘Morgan Freeman Doesn’t Sound Like God, God Sounds Like Morgan Freeman’

26 April 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Morgan Freeman was hailed as a cinematic icon and the inspiration for President Barack Obama’s political career at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Chaplin Award ceremony on Monday.

The gathering, a champagne soaked affair that brought out one percenters, cinephiles, and A-list talents such as Helen Mirren and Matthew Broderick, veered briefly away from film projects and into the current political landscape.

In toasting the Oscar-winner, Robert De Niro joked that Freeman’s deft handling of an asteroid on a collision course with earth inspired the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to seek higher office.

“In 1998 he played President Beck in the movie ‘Deep Impact.’ Morgan’s movie performance was an inspiration for the young Barack Obama,” De Niro joked to the audience. “According to reports, after seeing the film Barack turned to his friends in Kenya and said I want to be president, too. If only I had a birth certificate. »
