How The Clash Became an Integral Part of the ‘Stranger Things’ Musical Emmy Nomination

18 August 2017 4:54 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The use of The Clash’s 1982 hit single, “Should I Stay or Should I Go,” in “Stranger Things” is a great example of why there’s a new Emmy category this season honoring the creativity of the music supervisor. The Duffer Brothers inserted the song into their ’80s sci-fi script to emotionally connect the Indiana family that’s separated by the Upside Down dimension. However, if Emmy-nominated music supervisor Nora Felder hadn’t convinced The Clash of its importance, the Duffers would’ve had to find a replacement.

Pamela Adlon and Anthony Anderson Talk Tapping Into Personal Stories on the Road to Emmy

16 August 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Pamela Adlon and Anthony Anderson both logged many years as supporting players before getting the chance to star in comedy series that are deeply rooted in their own lives. Anderson has earned three consecutive Emmy nominations for lead comedy actor for his work on ABC’s “Black-ish.” Adlon elbowed past competitors on higher-profile shows to land a nom for her auteur vehicle, FX’s “Better Things.” Anderson took a break from filming season four and Adlon ducked out of post-production on season two to speak with Variety about their work, their career trajectories and why it truly is a win simply to be nominated for an Emmy.

What is the value of an Emmy nomination to an actor who is already well-established?

Seann William Scott returns in Goon: Last of the Enforcers the cartilage crunching sequel to the 2011 hockey comedy Goon, a follow-up that’s even “faster, funnier and more foul-mouthed than the original.”

An assured feature directing debut from comedy star Jay Baruchel (This Is The End, Knocked Up, How To Train Your Dragon), this is a film you can’t help but love – crass but charming, packed with eccentric and loveable characters, and just the right balance of sports carnage and comedy »

The Best Summer Television Shows of the 21st Century, Ranked

26 June 2017 8:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the not-so-good old days, summer used to be a break for more than just students. It was time off from great TV, as broadcast networks aired reruns, sports, and reality competitions while they assumed people were outside having fun. But since the new golden age began, all these TV shows have had to fit in somewhere, and many networks chose to run them during the less competitive summer months.

So, to honor the latest summer sensation — Netflix’s “Glow” — we’ve gathered the elite qualifiers below and ranked the seasons by overall quality, summer spirit, and re-watchability. To be eligible, seasons needed to be released in the months between June 1 and August 31 during the 21st century. After all, there’s plenty of new options to consider, but sometimes you want »

Sometimes, after witnessing a work of art that truly challenges and moves us, it's easier to be flippant than philosophical. So let's get the flippancy out of our system right away. After all, following an hour of television like last night's episode of Twin Peaks, people are bound to have questions. "What did I just witness?", for example. Or "How did David Lynch and Mark Frost convince Showtime to put that on the air?" Or "Does Trent Reznor have any idea how cool he looks in a pair of sunglasses? »
