Stephen Frears Hits All the Right Notes with Florence Foster Jenkins

19 August 2016 11:21 AM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Totally relaxed in his Ritz-Carleton suite on Central Park South, his arms spread wide on a rather tasteful couch, Stephen Frears held court not at all like the monarch in his biggest success, The Queen, (2006). His press conference for his latest effort, Florence Foster Jenkins, will take place one hour later with about 40 journalists in attendance. His stars -- Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, and The Big Bang Theory’s Simon Helberg -- would then be asked 95% of the questions. Not surprising. Directors, for the most, part do not drive traffic to web sites, sadly, even ones as near legendary as Frears.

Besides helming six of his past female leads to Academy-Award-nominated performances (Michelle Pfeiffer and Glenn Close in Dangerous Liaisons, Anjelica Huston and Annette Bening in The Grifters, plus Judi Dench in both Philomena and Mrs. Henderson Presents) and one Oscar win (Helen Mirren as the aforementioned queen), Frears has »

DC’s Powerless loses showrunner, production delayed

19 August 2016 9:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that production on NBC’s upcoming DC workplace comedy Powerless has been delayed, owing to the departure of showrunner Ben Queen due to “creative differences.”

Production on Powerless was slated to get underway later this month, although Queen’s departure is not expected to affect the show’s premiere date, as it is slated to debut midseason.

Vanessa Hudgens stars as Emily, a spunky young insurance adjuster specializing in regular-people coverage against damage caused by the crime-fighting superheroes. It’s when she stands up to one of these larger-than-life figures (after an epic battle messes with her commute) that she accidentally becomes a cult ‘hero’ in her own right … even if it’s just to her group of lovably quirky co-workers. Now, while she navigates her normal, everyday life against an explosive backdrop, Emily might just discover that being »

Madison Avenue Counts on Football, ‘Empire,’ ‘Big Bang’ To Lead New TV Season

18 August 2016 12:33 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Madison Avenue is counting on football, football and football to blast its promotional messages to couch potatoes in the coming TV season, and hoping a little music will also help spur consumers to pay more attention to TV commercials.

A Variety survey of commercial-ratings projections for the 2016-2017 broadcast-network TV season finds that advertisers believe NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” NBC’s and CBS’ package of Thursday-night NFL match-ups and the third season of Fox’s music-industry soap-opera “Empire” will lure the most viewers that advertisers covet the most: people between the ages of 18 and 49 who watch commercials rather than using technology to zap past them. The ratings predictions are culled by using estimates from three of the nation’s top media-buying agencies, which negotiate prices for and placement of billions of dollars in TV commercials each year.

The general public continues to place emphasis on the program ratings that Nielsen delivers day in and day out »

Why Julia Louis-Dreyfus Deserves Her Fifth ‘Veep’ Emmy: IndieWire’s Emmys Endorsements (Comedy)

Comedy Series

Veep

IndieWire’s Vote: “Veep

It hurts us to think “Transparent” and “Master of None” may never get a turn at the table, especially this year after both delivered such stellar seasons: Jill Soloway’s follow-up far surpassed her already impressive first season, and Aziz Ansari’s Netflix debut showed just how diversity in front of and behind the camera can benefit our culture (not to mention how smart, insightful writing can still appeal to mainstream audiences). But David Mandel pulled off an equally impressive feat by matching (if not besting) “Veep” creator Armando Iannucci’s Emmy-winning prior season, stepping into massive shoes and running a six-minute mile without tripping. The best comedy, nay, the best series on TV remains the one to beat this Emmys season. All hail the queen.

Laurie Metcalf Remembers First Emmy Win For ‘Roseanne’

17 August 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Despite finding award ceremonies very stressful, Laurie Metcalf is quite good at winning trophies. She’s up for three Emmy Awards this season — guest actress in a drama for LouisCK.net’s “Horace & Pete,” guest actress in a comedy for CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” and her first lead actress in a comedy series nomination for HBO’s “Getting On” — and was on a hot streak in the 1990s when she took home three consecutive supporting actress in a comedy Emmys for “Roseanne.”

What do you remember about that first win in 1992?

I remember that Roseanne [Barr] was the presenter and obviously it was my first time there. When she called my name, I halfway didn’t believe her. I halfway wondered if my name was really printed on that piece of paper or if someone else’s was. It was, but I wondered, “Can I trust her?”

Emmy-Nominated Comedy Series Production Designers Discuss Their Craft

17 August 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Need your series to pop? Great production design that underscores tone, theme, and character is key. But while the best design doesn’t overshadow the action for viewers, designers are as devoted to detail in the construction of their sets as they would be if they were building their own homes. Variety spoke with the five Emmy nominees for production design for a narrative program (half-hour or less) to discuss the vagaries of locating pecky cypress wood, fashioning click farms in Culver City, and what happens when you relocate the White House to the West Coast. Trust them: production design is much more than putting up walls.

The Big Bang Theory

Four-time Emmy winner John Shaffner has six nominations for CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” and 20 other noms over the course of his career, which kicked off with theater design for Joseph Papp in the late 1970s. But his real challenge this year was finding a way »

Emmy episode analysis: Christine Baranski (‘The Big Bang Theory’) is one mean mama

Christine Baranski reaped a fourth Best Comedy Guest Actress Emmy bid for playing Dr. Beverly Hoftstader, Leonard’s intimidating, intellectual psychiatrist mother on “The Big Bang Theory.” This marks the 15th overall nomination in her career and makes up for her inexplicable snub for the final season of “The Good Wife.” Her only Emmy win was on her first nomination for the sitcom “Cybill” […] »

John Glenn went down in history as the first American to orbit the Earth, but the story of the women who made his landmark journey possible has previously gone untold. The first trailer for the biopic Hidden Figures shines a spotlight on the pioneering black women who joined Nasa to calculate the journey to space and made a few giant leaps for equality along the way.

The trailer introduces a trio of young women of color who defied prejudice and doubt to give America the edge in the space race. »

Florence Foster Jenkins Review

13 August 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In recent years, Meryl Streep has showcased her singing voice in films like Mamma Mia, Into the Woods and Ricki and the Flash. So, it seems like a particular brand of karmic retribution that she wind up playing the title character in Florence Foster Jenkins, the latest release from Oscar-nominated filmmaker Stephen Frears (The Queen, Philomena). Set in 1944 New York, the film follows the real-life heiress as she pursues opera singing, despite her notorious lack of skill as a vocalist.

At this point, pointing out that Streep completely disappears in the role almost seems unnecessary. After all, she has already received a record-breaking 19 Academy Award nominations for her performances (including three wins), and given how much the Academy loves her, it’s inevitable that at least some Oscar buzz will result from her turn as Florence. While she is a strong woman, the character — as portrayed by Streep — has such »

How Meryl Streep Embraced Being Awful in ‘Florence Foster Jenkins’ – Video

12 August 2016 12:52 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

On the surface, Stephen Frears’ “Florence Foster Jenkins” looks like one of those soft, middlebrow, costume pictures aimed straight at the smart adult demo. Fine.

But it’s more than that. It’s a delicious, immersive escape into a lost New York of period cars and “men in tuxedos and women in evening gowns,” as Frears told me in an interview. He reveled in recreating that vintage Manhattan in London, and giving Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant a chance to shine.

Directors count on three-time Oscar-winner Streep to deliver for them, but this particular role marks an especially high degree of difficulty. Florence Foster Jenkins was a wealthy middle-aged music lover who couldn’t sing on key, but insisted on performing for increasingly larger audiences, who loved her anyway. She was infectiously entertaining.

“The script [by Nicholas Martin] was more or less what we shot, very good,” said Frears. “They sent me the link to YouTube. »
