Jimmy Kimmel and Scandal's Kerry Washington stepped up to the podium this morning to announce the nominees for the 64th Primetime Emmys (Nick Offerman was scheduled to announce with Washington, but had to cancel due to travel issues, and luckily, Kimmel was on hand, still in his pajamas).

It was hardly a hit with the upscale critics and is saddled with a title that's not exactly multiplex-friendly, but Salmon Fishing in the Yemen nevertheless is the top new release at the UK box-office, opening with a highly creditable £1.17m. In a week where a record 17 new releases competed for the attention of cinemagoers, this adaptation of the Paul Torday novel proves once again the power of the older, middle-class, Middle England audience that has already proved so potent this year with the success of The Iron Lady and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. While Salmon Fishing lacks older cast members equivalent to Meryl Streep and Jim Broadbent, or Judi Dench and Maggie Smith, it was clearly pitched at this market, with newspaper ads including endorsements from Woman & Home, »
