The Winners of the Creative Arts Emmys Are Here

18 August 2014 8:16 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

So the big Emmys don't air until next Sunday night and at Moviefone we will have, of course, full coverage. But last night the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out, for the people that are largely responsible for making these shows that you absolutely love -- you know, the behind-the-scenes talent tasked with conceptualizing and realizing your favorite programs. Oh -- and some guest actor and actresses awards were handed out, so there's that too!

In the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category Uzo Aduba took home the prize for "Orange is the New Black." Since we are, very shamefully, one of a handful of Americans who hasn't seen a single second of "Orange in the New Black," this doesn't mean a whole lot to us, but we are very happy for her! (We promise, we'll watch soon.) For the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, the »

Carla Gugino Will Go To The Brink For HBO

14 August 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

HBO has delivered some terrific comedies over the years, from the quirky musical series Flight of the Conchords to biting political satire Veep, and with the cast that the premium cable network is pulling together for its upcoming comedy The Brink, there’s reason to believe HBO has another major hit on its hands.

Now, our anticipation has been raised with news that Watchmen actress Carla Gugino has joined the cast in a multi-episode arc. Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption), Jack Black (School of Rock) and Pablo Schreiber (Orange Is The New Black) all topline The Brink, which is described as “an epic dark comedy.”

As per Deadline: The Brink focuses on “a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men: U.S. Secretary of State Walter Hollander (Robbins); Alex Coppins (Black), a lowly Foreign Service officer; and Zeke Callahan (Pablo Schreiber), an ace Navy fighter pilot. »

Time to Help Choose the Next Series: 5 New Pilots Premiere August 28th

11 August 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

Big news today: We’re excited to announce Amazon Studios’ third pilot season, beginning August 28th and featuring three half hour comedies The Cosmopolitans, Really and Red Oaks, and two hour-long dramatic thrillers Hand of God and Hysteria.  For one month, it will be up to you to watch, rate and comment – ultimately helping us decide which of them get the greenlight.

“There is something for everyone in this season,” says Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios.  The glamorous life of modern day expats in Paris. The hijinks of a summer job at a country club in 1980s New Jersey. The visions of a vigilante judge who appears to be channeling God.  The complexities of marriage and friendship among a circle of friends in suburban Chicago.  And the mysteries behind a psycho-physiological illness spreading through a small town in Texas. 

You can help choose which of these stories should get “picked up” to become shows. »

About Alex – The Review

7 August 2014 6:17 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

If you’re a child of the 80s, like myself, then your know all about what makes a good movie about friends. No, forget that Friends TV show and its unrealistic sitcom stereotypes. I’m talking about films like the 1985 classics The Breakfast Club  and St. Elmo’S Fire, or Fast Times At Ridgemont High (1982) or even Revenge Of The Nerds (1984). We knew what friends on film were all about in the 80s, but whatever happened to that great emotionally-driven, sentimental sub-genre of dramatic comedies?

I have the answer… thank god for filmmaking dynasties. In the tradition of great directors passing the torch to their children, award-winning director Edward Zwick has clearly fostered promising talent in his son Jesse Zwick, whose feature film debut About Alex manages to instill a renewed sense of sentimentality into the friendship dramedy genre. With a youthful voice, writer and director Jesse Zwick recycles what »

5 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

"Phantom of the Paradise"

What's It About? This is a freaky '70s take on "Faust" and "Phantom of the Opera," by way of Brian De Palma. Sure, we know that music producers are evil, but Swan (Paul Williams) really takes the cake.

Why We're In: Shout! Factory's two-disc set has some pretty great goodies for fans of this cult flick.

New on DVD & Blu-ray

"12 O'Clock Boys"

What's It About? Baltimore teens take to the streets on their dirt bikes, and young Pug wants to be one of them. A short but satisfying doc that's part extreme sports action and part personal drama.

In or Out: In.

"Around the Block"

What's It About? Christine Ricci stars as a cool American teacher in Australia who puts on a performance of "Hamlet" with her students. Unfortunately for the play's star, an Aboriginal teen named Liam, his »

Created by Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich, A Gifted Man) and ordered straight to series back in January, the midseason drama offers an “upstairs/downstairs” look at the goings-on at an exclusive Connecticut country club. So, a sudsier Caddyshack.

Per our sister site Deadline, Zea will play Mickey, the well-educated and most together member of the club’s founding family. So, a smarter Lacy Underall.

Interview: Tyler Bates on the 'relief' of finishing the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' score

1 August 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It’s safe to say that “Guardians of the Galaxy” score composer Tyler Bates has never written a cue titled “What A Bunch Of A-holes” before. “That’s James Gunn,” Bates laughs, referring to the movie’s director. “That was in his dialog. It was fun.” The fact that Gunn named a number of the music cues is a testament to the closeness that Bates and Gunn enjoy after working on a trio of Gunn-directed films together: “Slither,” “Super” and now “Guardians.” They met when Bates scored and Gunn wrote Zack Snyder’s  “Dawn of the Dead.” The pair’s working relationship is such that Gunn brought in Bates as soon as the director got the “Guardians” job. “He started telling me his thoughts in terms of tone.  He wanted dramatic and thematic,” Bates says. “He asked if I’d be up to writing in advance.” Bates began writing material »

Emmys: Quirky Is the New Black

30 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In much the same way that dramas like AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and HBO’s “The Sopranos” made flawed antiheroes easy to root for, a new wave of comedy is putting the oddball front and center. Instead of Jerry Seinfeld playing the straight man to his quirky friends or Michael Bluth watching his family unravel around him, characters like Zooey Deschanel’s Jess on Fox’s “New Girl” and Lena Dunham’s Hannah on HBO’s “Girls” celebrate their eccentricities.

The quirky lead has been a part of TV since “I Love Lucy” took home an Emmy in 1952, according to John Leverence, senior veep of awards at the TV Academy. He cites “The Jack Benny Show,” “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” and more recently, “Cheers” and “Frasier” as good examples of shows with off-kilter personalities at their core.

However, it’s just been in the past decade or so that »

David Duchovny: Doing Russian Beer Commercial Is Not A “Political Statement”

28 July 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | GossipCop | See recent GossipCop news »

David Duchovny says just because he's exhibiting pride in his Russian ancestry by appearing in a commercial for Siberian Crown beer, it does not mean that he supports the country's current politics. After the ad was released on YouTube last Friday -- amid fighting in eastern Ukraine and public accusations surrounding the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 -- the "Californication" actor was slammed for appearing as pro-Russia.

Showtime’s David Nevins on ‘Shameless,’ Bob Dylan, ‘Dexter’ Finale

18 July 2014 3:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“We make shows that challenge the medium,” Showtime’s president of programming David Nevins told reporters at the annual Television Critics Assn. press tour, pointing to the success of freshman drama “Penny Dreadful.” “We’ve had this nice pattern of new shows come on and are higher rated than the shows that left.”

Nevins made no apologies for “Shameless” switching categories from drama to comedy, a move that garnered William H. Macy an Emmy nod for best actor in a comedy. “There’s an arbitrariness to all of it,” he said. “Any category you do, I’m going to try to defy it. That’s what we do at Showtime.”

“If you ask Bill Macy, he’s giving a comic performance. That’s how he defines his performance, even though it’s an incredibly dark character. It’s a lively time in television. I consider that a good thing.”
