The competition ramped up among broadcast, cable and streaming networks. for Emmy bragging rights. *This list reflects networks that received more than five nominations.)

A&E: 10

Burning: The Riots 25 Years Later” filling in the list with one each.

ABC: 36

The strongest showing is from reality giant “Dancing With the Stars”: Despite not getting recognized in the overall reality competition series category, it »

Netflix Teams With ‘Jesus Camp’ Directors on ‘One of Us’ (Exclusive)

1 August 2017 4:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix is partnering with the Oscar-nominated team behind “Jesus Camp” on “One of Us,” a look inside the world of Hasidic Judaism, Variety has learned. The picture is co-directed by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady and will launch in the streaming service this fall. There will be an awards push.

Ewing and Grady spent three years making the picture, shooting in vérité style as they tracked the lives of three individuals. “One of Us” chronicles their decision to leave the insular ultra-Orthodox community. Their move into the secular world comes at a cost, straining their relationships with their family members and — in one case — threatening their personal safety. Like “Jesus Camp,” which examined one faction of the evangelical Christian community, “One of Us” is another deep dive into a lesser-known form of religious practice.

Richard Linklater Has an Idea for a TV Show and a New Script Set in Texas About ‘Demagoguery’

30 July 2017 11:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As with so many conversations with and about filmmaker Richard Linklater, the talk turned to Texas.

Deep in production on a film elsewhere and with the East Coast-set “Last Flag Flying” slated to premiere in the fall, Linklater touched on future projects while speaking to the Television Critics Association on Sunday.

While speaking about the upcoming PBS American Masters documentary “Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny,” Linklater referenced a recent New Yorker article about the history of Texas-based productions. Linklater explained that he has an idea percolating that may bring him back to making another film in his home state.

“I have a script I’m working on now that touches into Texas. It’s a true story that’ll be somewhere down the line that touches on demagoguery, a kind of con man, let’s say. To me, that’s apt for our times,” Linklater said.

Emmy Predictions 2017: Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series

14 June 2017 11:24 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Year’s Winner: “Making a Murderer

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: “American Masters” has been nominated 10 years in a row and won five times.

Fun Fact: Outside of “American Masters,” only one other program has been nominated more than once: “American Experience.”

It’s been 11 years since the TV Academy honored “Planet Earth” with its top nonfiction honor (plus three more awards), but we doubt they’ve cooled on the gorgeous, addictive BBC series. So we’re expected the sequel, “Planet Earth II,” to do well come nomination day. But it’s not the only contender with big ambitions at the Emmys. “American Masters” is the most dominant series in the history of this category, and Netflix has a number of offerings that could make a run.

“The Keepers” is the would-be successor to “Making a Murderer,” which won last year. The docu-series has been building comparatively moderate buzz, »

Episode 182 – George Stevens’ Woman of the Year

9 May 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

This time on the podcast, David Blakeslee and Trevor Berrett discuss George Stevens’s Woman of the Year.

George Stevens’s Woman of the Year, conceived to build on the smashing comeback Katharine Hepburn had made in The Philadelphia Story, marked the beginning of the personal and professional union between Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, who would go on to make eight more films together. This tale of two newspaper reporters who wed and then discover that their careers aren’t so compatible forges a fresh and realistic vision of what marriage can be. The freewheeling but pinpoint-sharp screenplay by Ring Lardner Jr. and Michael Kanin won an Academy Award, and Hepburn received a nomination for her performance. Woman of the Year is a dazzling, funny, and rueful observation of what it takes for men and women to get along—both in the workplace and outside of it.

Tribeca 2017 Women Directors: Meet Alexandra Dean — “Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story”

22 April 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Hedy Lamarr in “Ziegfeld Girl”: The Everett Collection

Alexandra Dean is an Emmy Award-winning journalist and producer. She produced news-magazine documentaries for PBS before becoming a series and documentary producer at Bloomberg television, producing the series “Innovators, Adventures and Pursuits.” She also writes about invention for Businessweek magazine. She is a founding partner at Reframed Pictures.

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story” will premiere at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival on April 23.

W&H: Describe the film for us in your own words

Ad: “Bombshell” is a film about a girl who wanted to make her mark in the world, but the world could not see past her face. Hedy Lamarr was considered “the most beautiful girl in the world” in the 1940s. She was a screen legend who starred alongside Jimmy Stewart and Clark Gable, but she also had a secret hobby. At night, she invented.

She worked on ideas with Howard Hughes, but her most exciting invention was a “secret communication system” she invented for Allied warships to torpedo Nazi submarines with deadly accuracy. That communication system became the basis for our secure Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Gps, and even some cell phone technology today.

But Hedy was never recognized for this extraordinary invention because she never told the press what she had done. In fact, in her later years she became a recluse and died alone and penniless. Then, in 2016 we found lost tapes of Hedy talking to a reporter in 1990. Now, for the first time, Hedy explains what happened in her own words.

W&H: What drew you to this story?

Ad: Who wouldn’t want to make a story about Hedy?! She was a wild child. Some said she was a spy. She was a movie star and later a drug addict and a recluse. Her life was crazy enough before we discovered she came up with a technology we use in our digital devices every day.

I spent years profiling inventors and innovators for Bloomberg Television and Businessweek, but I never heard a life story that came close to Hedy’s. I suppose it also particularly resonated for me because as a short, quiet woman who always wanted to be a director, I know a little about what it’s like to want to do something that no one expects you to do.

W&H: What do you want people to think about when they’re leaving the theater?

Ad: I’d like them to wonder how many people who look wrong for the part actually have the capacity to do extraordinary things they dream of achieving. I think every single one of us has some extraordinary spark. We just need Hedy’s balls of steel to make our dreams happen!

W&H: What was your biggest challenge making this film?

Ad: Definitely the biggest challenge was finding Hedy’s voice. At first we thought we would have to get an actress to read her autobiography, but then I discovered that Hedy sued the ghostwriter for libel, claiming nothing in the autobiography was true! I started desperately looking for other primary sources, but Hedy gave only a handful of short print interviews about her invention and never spoke about it on radio or television.

I was sitting up in bed at night staring at the walls and thinking there must be some tape of her telling her life story. My team and I started calling every person who ever said on the record they talked to Hedy Lamarr and after several months of searching we finally found a reporter who had recorded her 25 years ago and never published the tapes. The day we found the tapes we ripped up our film and started again, letting Hedy dictate the way we told her story.

W&H: How did you get your film funded?

Ad: It was a mix of funds from foundations, individual donors, and investors, as well as funding from “American Masters” on PBS, the program that will air “Bombshell” next fall.

The majority of our funds we raised from the Alfred P. Sloan foundation, which has been an extraordinary supporter of Hedy and her story for many years.

W&H: What does it mean to have your film play at Tribeca?

Ad: It’s an absolute dream come true. Truly. It’s blowing my mind!

W&H: What’s the best and worst advice you’ve received?

Ad: The best and worst advice that I get as a filmmaker tends to be all wrapped up in one piece of mixed advice. People tend to tell you what you should fix about your film by explaining how they would change it. What you need to listen to is that something is “bumping” them and may need improvement. You don’t need to listen to their particular diagnosis of how to improve the film. That distinction is so crucial.

W&H: What advice do you have for other female filmmakers?

Ad: Watch out for opinionated people. They may think you need more guidance than you do. Try hard to find your own voice. It’s in there, and all of us have one.

It feels like many young boys are encouraged to speak strongly in their individual voices from birth, and I’m not sure it’s the same for girls. We sometimes have to spend time finding that voice. It’s the one that whispers to you when people try to change your work. Listen to it — it’s trying to tell you something!

W&H: Name your favorite woman-directed film and why

Ad: My favorite has to be “The Hurt Locker.” Kathryn Bigelow is a legend. I thought she told that story with exquisite timing and suspense as well as a wonderful sense of perspective about the dullness of civilian life after the macabre thrill of wartime.

W&H: There have been significant conversations over the last couple of years about increasing the amount of opportunities for women directors yet the numbers have not increased. Are you optimistic about the possibilities for change? Share any thoughts you might have on this topic.

Ad: God, I hope [the numbers improve, but] I have no idea [how optimistic to be]. It seems inevitable that more women will direct because more and more viewers are demanding content that comes from multiple perspectives.

What’s tricky is securing the funding for directors who are female or from minority backgrounds. We just have to wait for more people to have faith in us.

Exclusive: Reba McEntire Talks Patsy Cline’s Influence in “Patsy Cline: American Masters” Clip

14 March 2017 12:02 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Patsy Cline: Courtesy of Universal Music Enterprises

“She brought a dignity to a woman’s feelings,” actress and singer Beverly D’Angelo says of legendary country star Patsy Cline in our exclusive clip of PBS’ “Patsy Cline: American Masters.” The “National Lampoon’s Vacation” and “Hair” star continues, “I think that the way that she sang with such feeling — and with such dignity — allowed any woman to feel, ‘You know, I am important. My feelings do count.’”

Widely considered one of the greatest and most influential singers of all time, Cline died in 1963 at the age of 30 following a plane crash. She’s sold millions of records, and in 1973, a decade after her death, she made history as the first female solo artist inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Cline “defined modern country music by using her singular talent and heart-wrenching emotional depth to break down barriers of gender, class, and genre,” as per the film’s official synopsis. “Narrated by Rosanne Cash, ‘Patsy Cline: American Masters’ examines the roots of Cline’s impact to illuminate how she arrived at a pivotal moment in the evolution of American culture and synthesized country, pop, and rock in a new way.”

In addition to rare performances of songs such as “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “Come On In,” and “I Fall to Pieces,” “Patsy Cline: American Masters” features interviews with singers including LeAnn Rimes, Kacey Musgraves, and Wanda Jackson. But the interviewee at the center of this exclusive clip is The Queen of Country Reba McEntire. “‘Sweet Dreams’ was a song that I recorded because I’m such a huge fan of Patsy Cline and I would end the show with that, a cappella,” McEntire says.

The film is streaming now on PBS Passport, a members-only streaming service available in most areas and PBS Ott apps. Broadcasts continue all this month on PBS. Find more information on the film’s official website.

Random Roles: Beverly D’Angelo on Vacation: “Thank god I did that movie”

26 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Welcome to Random Roles, wherein we talk to actors about the characters who defined their careers. The catch: They don’t know beforehand what roles we’ll ask them to talk about.

The actor: Beverly D’Angelo says that she won’t write a memoir until “my past becomes more interesting than my present.” So, not anytime soon—but when she does, it will be spectacular. She’s the kind of person who can drop lines like, “Oh, that was when I was married to the duke” in casual conversation. Her filmography includes roles in iconic movies from Hair to National Lampoon’s Vacation. She appeared at the recent Television Critics Association conference at the panel for the upcoming American Masters special on Patsy Cline (which airs this week on PBS); portraying Cline in the Academy Award-winning Coal Miner’s Daughter was D’Angelo’s breakthrough role.
