Donald Trump Shakes Up the Emmy Talk Show Race, As Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee, and Trevor Noah Get In The Game

23 May 2017 1:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As host of “The Apprentice,” one thing eluded Donald Trump: an Emmy. The fact that the Television Academy never awarded him one drove Trump — whom you might know is now the President of the United States of America — completely bonkers.

Trump wanted an Emmy bad enough that he went on the Hollywood campaign trail in 2008, taking trade newspaper reporters (including, um, this one) to lunch in an attempt to curry attention and grab a win for “The Apprentice.” But that was in the middle of “The Amazing Race’s” hot streak. Ultimately the closest Trump came to Emmy glory was singing the “Green Acres” theme with Megan Mullally on stage at the 2006 ceremony.

It’s a bit ironic, then, that Trump may play a hand in which shows are nominated — and ultimately win — this year’s Emmy for Outstanding Variety Talk Series.

Deadline’s TV Talk Podcast Episode #5: Fyc Hustle, ‘This Is Us’ Cast, Best Actor Contenders & ‘Breaking Bad’ Surprise

18 May 2017 1:35 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The sudden death of ex-Fox News Channel boss Roger Ailes today and the end of the network Upfronts presentations in New York is certainly TV news everyone in the business is talking about. But for our latest TV Talk podcast we decided to step out of the way of breaking news and look instead at the burgeoning (some would say extravagant) For Your Consideration Emmy campaigns as well as contenders in the Best Actor in a Drama Series race. Last month, Amazon took over the… »

Jennifer Aniston Helps Jimmy Kimmel With Hilarious Prank On Husband Justin Theroux's Car -- See the Pic!

17 May 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

If you ever find yourself in Hollywood, you may run into Justin Theroux. In fact, he'd be pretty hard to miss!

The Leftovers star appeared on Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where the late-night comedian -- with the help of Theroux's wife, Jennifer Aniston -- threw the 45-year-old actor's name into Emmy contention in just about the most garish way possible.

Watch: Justin Theroux Says He's 'Not in Competition' With Wife Jennifer Aniston When It Comes to Success

"Your wife, Jennifer Aniston, helped me out," Kimmel revealed. "You know that recall notice you got for your car? There’s nothing wrong with the car."

"Because I feel like HBO could be doing a better job of promoting this for you," Kimmel explained, "we had some experts adorn your car in a way that is going to bring you a lot of attention."

As you can see in the photo posted to Theroux's Instagram, "adorn" is an »

Samantha Bee Isn’t Jealous That Donald Trump Hasn’t Criticized Her by Name

17 May 2017 10:22 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

How does one write jokes about the Trump presidency?

As Mike Rubens, a correspondent for TBS’ “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee,” told Variety, it’s a challenge even for one of the sharpest teams in late-night comedy.

At a For Your Consideration event held Tuesday at New York’s New World Stages, Rubens said the team often laments that they “can’t push this any further than it already is, but hopefully documenting the absurdity is enough.”

The group was also asked about their no-expletives-given coverage style and interviewing guests at last year’s Republican National Convention about Black Lives Matter. (Samantha Bee stressed that everyone they spoke with seemed like swell people who would bring you a casserole if you were ill.) The event also showed clips from the first two seasons. Bee visibly squirmed during clips from an October interview wherein former President Barack Obama offhandedly mentioned Hillary Clinton’s victory several times.

Leah Remini on Pitching Her A&E Scientology Series: "I Said, 'Don't Be Pussies'"

16 May 2017 10:33 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

When Leah Remini first came to producers Eli Holzman and Aaron Saidman with an idea for a nonfiction TV show about the ways Scientology destroys lives and tears apart families, she offered a caveat.

"Leah said, 'You have to be tough and brave,'" Holzman recounted Monday evening at a packed For Your Consideration screening and panel at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences moderated by Hollywood Reporter editorial director Matthew Belloni.

At which point Remini — who defected from Scientology in 2013 and has since dedicated her life to shedding a light on its controversial tactics — couldn't help but interject.<br »

‘Fargo’ and ‘The Leftovers’ Collide as Damon Lindelof Interviews Noah Hawley, Ewan McGregor and Carrie Coon

12 May 2017 11:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“Carrie, I’m not familiar with your work prior to ‘Fargo,'” Damon Lindelof said to Carrie Coon. “I’ve heard you’re an excellent actress.”

This, obviously, is a boldfaced lie. Back in 2014, Lindelof was one of the first people in Hollywood to notice Coon’s immense talent when he cast her in HBO’s drama, “The Leftovers.” But he wasn’t about to say as much while moderating a For Your Consideration panel for her other show, FX’s anthology series, “Fargo.”

And neither was “Fargo” creator Noah Hawley.

“When I first saw Carrie — in a movie,” Hawley said, pointedly, before adding, “Maybe another show…” The showrunner trailed off, allowing the audience to fill in the blank.

‘American Gods’ Producers and Stars on How A Nudity Gender Equality Mandate Led to So Much Penis — IndieWire’s Turn It On Podcast

Last Week’S Podcast: Bryan Cranston on Why He Refuses to Accept an Acting Emmy For ‘Sneaky Pete’ — IndieWire’s Turn It On Podcast

American Gods” executive producer Bryan Fuller has a slogan idea for the network behind his new show: “Starz Loves Cockz.”

The series, which Fuller and Michael Green adapted from Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel, doesn’t shy away from anything – including ultraviolence and bold nudity. That includes both female and male scenes.

“We had to do the book justice,” Fuller recently told IndieWire’s Turn It On podcast. “They told us very early on that we could have nudity, and yet they were clear in not needing nudity if we didn’t [want] it. The only qualification was we should be equal opportunity nudists with the show. So we had a lot of penises.”

‘Gilmore Girls’ Star Lauren Graham Talks ‘A Year in the Life’ New Episodes

12 May 2017 10:12 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In anticipation for awards season, “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” screened for voters and media on Thursday evening as part of a For Your Consideration event at Netflix’s FYSee Space in Beverly Hills. Star Lauren Graham was joined by her “Parenthood” co-star and friend Mae Whitman, who had a small role in the “Gilmore Girls” reboot, for a Q&A about both the original series and revival.

Seventeen years since its initial premiere, “Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life” welcomed audiences back to the quirky town of Stars Hollow for more stories and shenanigans, with nearly the entire original cast, including Graham.

The mini-series, which premiered on Netflix in November 2016, picks up 10 years after the events of the series finale. According to Graham, returning as Lorelai Gilmore felt more organic than she anticipated.

‘Gilmore Girls’: Lauren Graham Would Do Another Revival ‘In the Middle of Nowhere’

11 May 2017 11:22 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Lauren Graham would return to Stars Hollow in a heartbeat, even without a budget or real sets, for that matter.

“I would do that just as an actor in a barn in the middle of nowhere,” the actress said at a Netflix event in Beverly Hills on Thursday night. The Emmys For Your Consideration showcase, moderated by Graham’s former “Parenthood” co-star Mae Whitman, offered press and Academy voters a chance to revisit Graham’s moving performance in Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls” revival.

On the original “Gilmore Girls” series, created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, Graham played former teen mom Lorelai Gilmore, opposite then-newcomer Alexis Bledel (as precocious daughter Rory Gilmore), for nearly seven years before the show ended in 2007. Almost 10 years later, the show returned as Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, »

Modern Family Renewed for Seasons 9 and 10

10 May 2017 4:26 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.

ABC will be giving you more Family time for some time.

The network has renewed Modern Family for a ninth and tenth season, EW has learned. Similar to seasons 7 and 8, seasons 9 and 10 will each consist of 22 episodes. The renewal will hurtle the show past the 200-episode milestone midway into next season, as 188 episodes will have aired after the season 8 finale next Wednesday.

Dear Hollywood: 9 Top Women Cinematographers Who Are Ready to Direct

10 May 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Here’s how studios say they see it: Sure, we really want to hire women directors. But there’s almost no studio movie that isn’t big budget, and we can’t find women who have the experience necessary to handle the really big movies. (Never mind Colin Trevorrow. Or Marc Webb. Or Gareth Edwards. Or Jon Watts.)

Of course, that logic is a vicious cycle at best, but here’s a chance to break it. Director Reed Morano’s dazzling execution of the first three episodes of Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” suggests another excellent source for future women directors: top cinematographers.

Writers Strike Averted: Tentative New Deal with Producers Sealed Late Monday Night

2 May 2017 12:51 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Good news for Hollywood: It appeared late Monday that there wouldn’t be a writers strike. As both Writers Guild negotiators and reps from the Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers continued talking late into the night, reports began to emerge that both sides had zeroed in on a tentative new deal.

That means it will be business as (mostly) usual on Tuesday, with scribes reporting to work and productions continuing without interruption. Ten years after a 100-day strike crippled Hollywood, the speculation was met overnight on social media mostly with a sigh of relief.

The official word came down at around 1:30 a.m. Pt via a brief, joint statement: “The Writers Guilds of America, West and East and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers have concluded negotiations and have reached a tentative agreement on terms for a new three-year collective bargaining agreement.”

Baz Luhrmann Prepping Season 2 of 'The Get Down' as He Prepares to Take a Step Back

How will Netflix's The Get Down move forward with a second season without co-creator Baz Luhrmann steering the ship? That's a question many are wondering after the second part of season one was released in early April — and it's one the Romeo + Juliet and Strictly Ballroom director was eager to answer on the red carpet for The Get Down's Emmy For Your Consideration event Thursday.   "For two years it's been my life. Now, just by contract, I owe other things," Luhrmann tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I have to be further back. We have great plans going forward." »

Jill Soloway Says ‘Transparent’ Season 4 Will Be ‘More Political’

23 April 2017 11:33 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amazon’s “Transparent” hit the Emmy trail once again with a For Your Consideration event Saturday evening, featuring a two-episode screening and Q&A with the cast and creative team. The panel was moderated by a “surprise guest,” singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette.

Held at the Hollywood Athletic Club in Los Angeles, “Transparent” creator Jill Soloway was joined by stars Jeffrey Tambor, Judith Light, Gaby Hoffmann, Amy Landecker, Kathryn Hahn, Alexandra Billings and Trace Lysette to discuss the series’ third season.

Tambor, whose portrayal of Maura Pfefferman has already garnered him two lead actor Emmys, said he is “grateful” for the time he has spent with the role. “I think it’s made me a more responsible actor and person, and also made a better husband, citizen and dad,” he said.

Given the current tense political climate, nearly every member of the cast and crew agreed it was “unavoidable” not to address the influx in Lgbtq discrimination since the »
