Showtime's decision to air the fourth and final season of "The Big C" as four hour-long episodes may have been a savvy move, as it returns star Laura Linney to familiar territory: she now competes for Best Movie/Miniseries Actress, the category that won her two of her three Emmys. Both of those victories were upsets. In 2002, she contended for "Wild Iris," a Showtime movie about three generations of a complex family. The telefilm's only nominations were for Linney and her co-star Gena Rowlands, who played her mother, but not only did Linney beat Rowlands for the award, she also beat Vanessa Redgrave for the Winston Churchill biopic "The Gathering Storm," which went on to win Best TV Movie. Also nominated that year was Angela Bassett, who played the title civil rights pioneer in "The Rosa Parks Story." Linney won Comedy Guest Actress in 2004 for "Frasier," and then returned to the Movie/Minis. »

Back in late 1989, Tor Books began a huge promotion for Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series. Contracted as far back as 1984 to write a traditional trilogy, publisher Tom Doherty already knew Jordan –based on previous novels Tor had published with the author- that he had a tendency to go long. So they signed him to a six volume deal instead. It was Doherty who deemed the series the next Lord of the Rings, and pushed the book hard, mostly by sending out Advanced Readers Copies to almost every bookstore on the planet. But the strategy succeeded and on January 15, 1990, Eye of the World was released. It quickly became a best seller, with fans asking when the next book was coming out. And Jordan did keep a great pace, writing as fast as he could, releasing the second book only eight months later. Books three through six were released roughly a year apart after that. »
