Just how unlucky is 'Mad Men' star Jon Hamm at award shows?

19 May 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Jon Hamm has never won an Emmy. When he reaped his seventh consecutive Best Drama Actor bid last year as Don Draper in “Mad Men”, he distinguished himself from a half dozen of the most iconic leading men of the twenty-first century who had scored six nominations each: Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), James Gandolfini (“The Sopranos”), Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”, “Six Feet Under”), Hugh Laurie (“House”), Martin Sheen (“The West Wing”) and Kiefer Sutherland (“24”). Cranston won the race four times, Gandolfini three times and Sutherland once apiece. Hall, Laurie and Sheen were snubbed year after year like Hamm. -Break- "Mad Men" poll: Which episode should Jon Hamm submit to Emmy judges? But to equate Hamm with Hall, Laurie and Sheen would be to assume that Hamm’s bad awards luck is limited to the Emmys. Yes, he holds the record »

A CSI Postmortem: What Was Great About the Gore

19 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

How do you memorialize something that is essentially immortal? There will be a time, presumably, when humans no longer watch episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation or any of its three spinoffs (CSI: Miami; CSI: NY; and CSI: Cyber, which is still on the air) or read CSI-branded novels or comic books or play CSI board and video games or visit traveling museum exhibits like “CSI: The Experience” or suffer, while on jury duty, from the so-called CSI Effect. Just as there was a time, presumably, before any of those things existed — October 5, 2000, to be precise, one day before the CSI pilot premiered. Bill Clinton was still our president; Facebook and YouTube didn’t yet exist; and The West Wing and Will & Grace had just won the Emmys for Best Drama and Best Comedy, respectively. October 5, 2000, was also the last day before the world discovered »

The Grinder Aims For Legal Meta-Show… Sort Of On Fox – Preview

12 May 2015 5:33 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Fox loves a familiar face, and whether that means renewing shows that have been on way too long, or picking up a new show with Rob Lowe and Fred Savage. You can’t blame them, because people, but this one looks like it might have an uphill battle for fans… or it will be brilliant… or both.

In a spin on legal shows that seems to suggest an underlying dislike of legal shows, Lowe plays an actor who was on a show playing a lawyer for several years. With his show finally off the air, he’s moving back home, and his brother (Savage), who is actually a lawyer, can’t stand him.

That sounds like the perfect opportunity for The Grinder to prance around real courts, stealing his brother’s lack of thunder.

Hilarity ensues.

This is a show littered with difficulty, but there is a chance that it could pull everything together. »

Fox releases trailers for their 2015-2016 new show slate

12 May 2015 7:43 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With the 2014-2015 television season winding down, many television fans and channels are looking ahead to the new series that will make their debut over the next television season. Fox is no different, having announced their renewals, cancellations, and new series pickups over the last week, and the network has now released trailers for a number of their new series.

First up is the trailer for the new animated series Bordertown.

From Family Guy’s Mark Hentemann comes Bordertown, a new animated comedy about two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S. – Mexico border. The series takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America, where the U.S. Census forecasts that by 2017, ethnic minorities will become the majority. Set against this increasingly diverse backdrop, the comedy explores family, politics and everything in between with a cross-cultural wink. Bordertown centers on two clans: the Buckwalds and the Gonzalezes. »

Contraire to Marvel’s CEO: why there’s hope for female superheroes behind the camera

9 May 2015 5:34 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hot Pursuit has opened to critical panning and unfavorable audience reactions today. The $35 million Action-Comedy’s 6% rottentomatoes score, lack of persistent marketing and generally-unfunny jokes in its major trailer all point at a financial loss for Warner Bros. But there lies the hope for women filmmakers in this article: this movie was still released amidst all the panning, the negativity generally-aimed at female filmmakers, and the recent backlash from the leaked emails between Marvel CEOs concerning the perceived lack of appeal for female superhero films.

The leaked emails remind us of the general sexist attitude towards female filmmakers, specifically directors. The major studios, including Warner Bros, nowadays produce and distribute just a few dozen films a year with an average budget of over $100 million. All those superhero and mega-expensive films we’ve come to love, hate, and blog about are the proof. By now, we’ve all noticed that a »

17 traumatic TV deaths that we're still in denial about

9 May 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

So, it's now been a couple of weeks since The Incident took place on Grey's Anatomy, and now that the dust has settled we're looking back on the other small-screen deaths that have left us similarly destroyed.

Below, we've listed 17 of the TV demises we're still not over. In no particular order. They all made us sad. We're not crying, it's just raining. On our faces.

Warning: Just in case this doesn't go without saying, spoilers galore lie ahead. Some of these shows are finished, some are still on, but all of the episodes referenced aired in 2014 or earlier.

1. Joyce Summers (Buffy)

Spoiler: Joss Whedon is going to show up a few times on this list. The man has a self-confessed cruel streak when it comes to offing beloved characters, but the death of Buffy Summers' mother is in a different league even by Whedon standards.

6 New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in May 2015 (And the Best Episodes of Each)

Every actor making up the series' four lead roles worked on an Aaron Sorkin series.

It's hard to go wrong with that cast, and Indiewire TV Editor Liz Shannon Miller says the show mostly delivers with room to improve (and indicators that it will).  Best Episode: Episode 6 shakes things up — literally.

Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History

27 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one.   Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine?   Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth?  A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe?   It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe? »

Tribeca Diary, Day One: Starving the Irish and Taking Molly with the Democrats

17 April 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Tribeca Film Festival began on Wednesday night with the premiere of Live From New York!, Bao Nguyen’s documentary about the history of Saturday Night Live. Although your humble film critic was unable to see that film, the festival will offer more than a hundred movies of various flavors from April 15-26, and in this critic’s opinion, the lineup in 2015 is stronger than any in the last five years. Starting today, this is your place to find a brief run-down of the films that played the festival the day before, either in public screenings or in pre-festival press screenings.

Although it may not sound as entertaining as an oral history of America’s leading sketch-comedy program, Democrats comes surprisingly close. Documentarian Camilla Nielsson was given unprecedented access to two of the framers of a democratic constitution in the country of Zimbabwe: one man representing the government of dictatorial president Robert Mugabe, »
