Black Women Are an Integral Part of a New Era of TV, and It's Absolutely F*cking Necessary

14 September 2017 3:59 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Netflix Recently, I was on a five-hour-plus flight back home and decided to check out the movie The Incredible Jessica James on Netflix (which I initially thought was the first season of a show and was heartbroken to find out I was wrong). It had everything I love in my movies - a quirky (but not annoying) protagonist, an awkward love interest, and that modern-millennial romance that makes us wince in secondhand embarrassment while wishing we had that kind of love. Plus, Jessica James is played by Jessica Williams, who I basically want to be when I grow up. So I went into it guessing that I was going to enjoy it. By the end of the movie, I was crying. She's creative, smart, a little bitter, a lot jaded, full of swagger, and black. Just like me. I wasn't crying because the movie is particularly heartbreaking or »

12 September 2017 8:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The Emmys have been getting better in recent years, with winners like Tatiana Maslany and Rami Malek being welcome and deserved surprises, but the Academy’s frustrating history of repeat nominees and winners has made it hard for deserving performances and series to make their mark. No awards show is ever going to be perfect, especially the Emmys when you consider just how many options there are to choose from each year, but it’s never not heartbreaking when you realize the likes of Kristen Bell, Carrie Coon, Michael K. Williams and more all went unnoticed for iconic TV performances.

With the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards airing this Sunday, IndieWire looks back at the 20 best performances that went unrecognized by the Television Academy over the last 17 years. The group is made up of actors both comedic and dramatic, in roles ranging from lead to supporting, but they’re all united in their greatness. »

11 September 2017 12:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While Hurricane Irma races its way through Florida, those seeking refuge at the Meadow Woods Middle School in Orlando had a dash of sunshine Sunday morning when Kristen Bell graced their premises on Sunday morning, as reported by Vulture.

Bell was in Florida when Irma hit the coasts, filming a new comedy called “Like Father” starring alongside Kelsey Grammer. Earlier during the weekend, as the storm was getting to Florida, Bell turned to Twitter to look for a rather unusual collection of supplies in the Orlando area: a keyboard, a microphone, and an amp.

Fox Searchlight has set an April 20, 2018, release date for “Super Troopers 2

The 25 Best One-Season Television Shows of the Last 25 Years

In the age of peak TV, we’ve gotten to see many series which are constructed to be satisfying after just one season of storytelling.

Jk Rowling-created detective Cormoran Strike arrives on the BBC in a solid hour of traditional murder mystery…

Sherlock Holmes. Hercule Poirot. Veronica Mars. Endeavour Morse. Unlikely names are clearly the birthright of any decent fictional Pi. Even the relatively conventional Sam Spade and John Shaft sound like characters christened by Vic and Bob when you think about it.

Cormoran Strike though, the creation of thriller novelist Robert Galbraith (himself the creation of Jk Rowling) takes the Pi biscuit. It’s a fabulously implausible name that belongs on the 1940s cover of a boys’ own adventure comic. Cormoran. Strike. Half mythical Cornish giant, »
