As expected, HBO, which is challenging the Hollywood studios with its smart programming, luring away both talent and audiences from the big screen, dominated the 64th Emmy nominations, for the 12th year in a row. This time they nabbed 81, led by movie star two-hander "Hemingway & Gelhorn," starring Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman (15 nominations). I'm not the only cinephile who would rather stare at “Boardwalk Empire” or “Game Change” (which both received 12 nominations) or “Game Of Thrones” (11 Nnminations) or Martin Scorsese music biodoc “George Harrison: Living in the Material World" (6 nominations) or "Girls" (5 nominations), for which the magnificent Lena Dunham earned nominations for comedy writing, directing and acting, than go out to most movies. The Primetime Emmy® Awards will be announced Sept. 23. The full list of Emmy nominations is here. HBO’s Emmy® nominations this year »

HBO goes back in time with Hemingway & Gellhorn, about the lives of writer Ernest Hemingway and journalist Martha Gellhorn. Director Philip Kaufman revealed to The Hollywood Reporter how he got involved with the project starring Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman. "Somebody presented me with a very long screenplay [by] Barbara Turner [and Jerry Stahl], which I came to think had some potential," Kaufman says. "We spent about eight years, producer Peter Kaufman and I, trying to develop this project eventually." As time went on, Kaufman became enthralled by Hemingway and Gellhorn, who were married from 1940-45. Photos:

Last month HBO dropped a 5-minute trailer for their upcoming film "Hemingway & Gellhorn" starring Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman as the titular Ernest Hemingway and Martha Gellhorn, respectively. For anyone who thinks 5 minutes is too long for a trailer, or for those who simply couldn't be bothered sitting through it all, HBO have offered us a new look at the film in a handy bite-sized edition - this trailer coming in at just under a minute.
There's nothing particularly new or eye-catching on show here until right at the end of the trailer, and then comes a new and vital piece of information about the film - the air date. Philip Kaufman's ("The Unbearable Lightness of Being") film will premiere on HBO on Monday, May 28, and as far as we can tell from what we've seen so far, we've got some fantastic visuals and performances to look forward to. »
