Julian Fellowes Recalls ‘Downton Abbey’ First Emmy Win

7 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Nine years after winning an Oscar for writing Robert Altman’s acclaimed “Gosford Park” in 2002, Julian Fellowes found himself up for multiple Emmy awards for his first ongoing series: “Downton Abbey.” The U.K. smash was just in its infancy (and competing as a miniseries) when Fellowes claimed two wins. He’s been nominated six times since. With “Downton” now a part of the TV history books, Fellowes (who is also eligible for Amazon’s mini “Doctor Thorne”) says the honor never gets old.

Do you remember the moment they called your name?

The first category we got to that evening was writing. They run at you with these cameras and you want to avoid looking crestfallen when they read out another name. You’re poised to start applauding the lucky winner. I was geared to accept I hadn’t won, and then I had. I nearly jumped out of »

Tom Hollander: it's fashionable for TV and film actors to sound posh

29 February 2016 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Rev and Gosford Park star says prominence of actors such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne and Damian Lewis is not due to privilege

Actor Tom Hollander has said the preponderance of high profile TV and film roles going to privately educated stars such as Benedict Cumberbatch is down to fashion not privilege.

The Rev and Gosford Park star said there used to be lots of leading actors who were Scottish, Welsh or “working class heroes” but now it was “fashionable to sound posh”.

Best Picture and Better Picture: Movies That Should Have Won the Oscar but Didn’t

19 February 2016 3:34 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 The best picture doesn’t always win Best Picture. Sometimes the best film of the year gets robbed. Cinelinx looks at the movies which should have won Best Picture but didn’t.

Whenever the Best Picture winner is announced at the Oscars, sometimes we say, “Yeah, that deserved to win,” but then again, sometimes we say, “Huh? Are they kidding me?!” There are a lot of backstage politics and extenuating factors in Hollywood that can determine which film wins the big trophy. The worthiest film doesn’t always take the statue home. Going back over the 88-year history of the Academy Awards, we look at which films didn’t really deserve to win and the ones which rightfully should have won.

DGA Awards: Is ‘Revenant’ the New Oscar Frontrunner? (Analysis)

7 February 2016 12:07 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

Two weekends ago, the Producers Guild of America went for The Big Short. Last weekend, the Screen Actors Guild went forSpotlight. And now, this weekend, the Directors Guild of America has gone for The Revenant.

In the 24 previous years in which the three highest-profile guilds presented their top prizes, a split of this nature has happened four times: 15 years ago, when the PGA went for Gladiator, SAG went for Traffic and the DGA went for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; 14 years ago, when the PGA went for Moulin Rouge!, SAG went for Gosford Park and the DGA went for A Beautiful Mind; 11 years ago, when the PGA went for The Aviator, SAG went for Sideways and the DGA went for Million Dollar Baby; and two years ago, when the PGA went for 12 Years a Slave and Gravity (they allegedly tied), SAG went for American Hustle »

Alejandro G. Inarritu’s ‘Revenant’ DGA Win Keeps Oscar Guessing Game Going

6 February 2016 11:26 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The only thing Alejandro G. Inarritu really had going against him heading into this year’s Directors Guild of America awards ceremony was that he just won a year ago for “Birdman.” Apparently, that wasn’t enough.

The “Revenant” director became the first filmmaker to ever win back-to-back DGA honors for feature filmmaking Saturday night, and really, beyond the simple unlikely nature of that prospect, it’s difficult to call it a shock. After all, it’s not a hard sell to the guild’s 13,000 members that production on “The Revenant” was no walk in the park. That’s certainly been the overbearing linchpin of the film’s campaign these last several weeks, a narrative that is helping to propel Leonardo DiCaprio to his first Oscar. But moreover, voters in this group, they know very well what it takes to pull off a project like this. So they voted accordingly. »

5 February 2016 1:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh from his role as the villainous Kilgrave in Marvel’s Jessica Jones, David Tennant is now in production on Mad to Be Normal, a biopic of world-renowned Scottish psychiatrist R. D. Laing, which sees him starring alongside Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), Michael Gambon (Gosford Park) and Gabriel Byrne (The Usual Suspects).

“I have long been fascinated by the life and work of R. D. Laing,” Tennant tells Screen International. “This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and discover this important man and I am honoured and thrilled to be involved in telling this story. Robert Mullan’s passion for the subject is inspiring and the presence of the brilliant Elisabeth Moss makes this something I cannot wait to start work on.”

Mad to Be Normal is being directed by Robert Mullan (Letters to Sofija, Gitel, We Will Sing), who has also previously written three books about Laing.

What Does the Best Ensemble SAG Award Win Mean for ‘Spotlight’ at the Oscars?

1 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

Saturday evening’s 22nd Annual SAG Awards proved that we have a real race on our hands for best picture. The night’s biggest prize, the best ensemble award, which has been awarded to 10 of the last 20 best pic winners, went to Spotlight.

Director Tom McCarthy’s drama about Boston Globe reporters investigating the Catholic Church’s child molestation scandal is led by performances from best supporting actor Oscar nominee Mark Ruffalo, best supporting actress nom Rachel McAdams, and best actor nom last year, Michael Keaton.  The film previously won the Critics’ Choice award for best picture.

Rival contenders The Big Short and The Revenant, took home best picture honors at the PGA  Awards and Golden Globes, respectively, with The Martian also winning a best picture award (in the comedy/musical category) at the Golden Globes.

So, what does a best ensemble win at SAG »

PBS Chief Paula Kerger Talks ‘Mercy Street’ Renewal, ‘Downton Abbey’ Legacy and ‘Hamilton’ Special

18 January 2016 12:20 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“We’re very happy today,” PBS president and CEO Paula Kerger told reporters Monday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Pasadena, Calif., basking in early ratings for the debut of the new drama “Mercy Street,” which had bowed to a 2.2, exceeding expectations. An additional 200,000 streamed the show, giving a boost to the multi-platform effort behind the launch. “I think we’ve begun an important conversation.”

Still, she resisted repeated efforts to commit to an early renewal for the show. “I haven’t seen scripts for a second season,” she said, “but we have very much left the door open.”

Given that “Downton Abbey” is now in its final season, the network can breathe a sigh of relief that its drama slate seems secure with the Civil War-set series. She defended the use of her limited marketing budget to support that transition, telling reporters, “We’re constantly evaluating how »

‘Downton Abbey’ Stars Talk First Impressions, Favorite Moments and Emotional Final Season

1 January 2016 12:44 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Downton Abbey” stars and exec producer Gareth Neame swapped stories and shared favorite moments from the series during a recent gathering in New York to promote the drama’s final season on PBS, which bows Jan. 3.

Here’s a rundown of memorable observations from the night:

Jim Carter (Mr. Carson) knew the show was for him when he noticed an intriguing line of stage direction in the script he’d been given for his audition. “It said ‘Carson sits there in his magnificence.’ I thought, ‘I could do that.’ If you want an actor to sit in magnificence, I’m your boy.”

Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary) went in to the audition thinking her character would be something like the one played by Kristin Scott Thomas in 2001’s “Gosford Park,” the Robert Altman-directed parlor mystery for which “Downton Abbey” creator Julian Fellowes earned a screenwriting Oscar. She realized that was »
