In “Live and Let Dine,” Archer adds another to its ever-growing line of guest stars in the form of Anthony Bourdain. And, of all the people who’ve come through this show, Bourdain is undoubtedly the most baffling choice made thus far, which is partly why I wasn’t entirely sold on this week’s episode.
Shows often rely upon guest stars to draw in new viewers, except Archer‘s had a bit more integrity than that when it comes to choosing its guest spots. Either their inclusion is inevitable, such as with Burt Reynolds, or it’s a case of an actor wanting to have a bit of fun on the side, like with George Takei.
Bourdain, on the other hand, sticks out as a clear outlier. Like Reynolds before him, Bourdain spends the duration of the episode playing the easiest role of them all, himself; however, whereas those »

Earlier this week The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced the nominations for their annual awards for theatrical motion picture, animated motion picture and long-form television nominations for the 2013 Producers Guild Awards.
This was an incredible year for films, and most of the movies nominated here deserve to be. Out of all the films listed here, I'd like to see Zero Dark Thirty or Silver Linings Playbook take the top prize for motion picture, Paranorman for animated film, Game of Thrones for TV drama, and Curb Your Enthusiasm for TV Comedy. In case you missed them, here they are! Look them over and let us know what films you'd like to see win!
Ten nominations in the theatrical motion picture category include:
Argo (Warner Bros.)
Beasts of the Southern Wild (Fox Searchlight)
Django Unchained (The Weinstein Company)
Life of Pi (20th Century Fox)
Les Misérables (Universal)

The awards that have absolutely nothing to do with golf, the PGA (Producers Guild Of America) awards nominations have just been announced over in the USA, and once again a few familiar movies are standing out with voters. Ben Affleck’s Argo and the superb Beasts Of The Southern Wild lead the way, along with Lincoln, my personal fave Silver Linings Playbook and Skyfall also in the offing.
In the animated feature category, Brave, Frankenweenie, Wreck-it-Ralph, Paranorman and Rise Of The Guardians all on the list, while Breaking Bad and Britain’s own Downton Abbey were featured in the TV (Drama) list, and 30 Rock and Curb Your Enhusiasm both in the TV (Comedy) category.
The movie nominations give a great foresight into who may be included in the Best Picture Oscar category, so keep ‘em peeled on who wins what when the gongs for the PGAs are dished out »

The Producers Guild of America has announced its nominations for best productions of the year, in what is often looked to as an indicator for how the Academy Awards may go.
The one surprise: Skyfall. No 007 film has ever cracked the Best Picture list, but if this nomination is any indication, that could change when the Oscar nods are revealed Jan. 10.
