The Screen Actor’s Guild Awards announced this year’s nominees Wednesday, Dec. 11, with some upsets and surprises along the way. Oscar favorite 12 Years a Slave leads the pack with four nomination, including Ensemble Cast, followed by The Butler, Dallas Buyers Club and August: Osage County, which each got three nominations of their own. The SAG Awards have been considered a good barometer for the Oscars as actors make up the largest group of Oscar voters.

Evans told Metro that he’s not a superstitious person, and that he’s excited to tell the story of The Crow.
‘It is incredibly sad that Brendon died making the movie. He was a very talented actor. It is a very beautiful story, The Crow. It is a very tragic story with huge emotional themes. We plan to tell the story differently and with a lot of integrity to the original comic book.’
The actor also revealed that he actually enjoys putting himself in dangerous situations. While he was living in New Zealand (during the filming of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) he said that he would “take [his] car and go down to »

Warning: Spoilers for the second half of "The Walking Dead" Season 4 are below.
TV Guide reports that Kirkman says Carol "will definitely return before the end of the season." But that's not all viewers have to look forward to. The "Sanctuary" mentioned in the radio signal Daryl, Michonne, Bob Stookey and Tyreese heard in the car will "come into play," and there will be some flashbacks to look forward to as well.
The confirmation of those flashbacks seems to explain what executive producer Gale Anne Hurd teased about viewers seeing Hershel again. Though he died in the midseason finale, his daughters Beth and Maggie could remember earlier times with their father. TV Guide speculates that the »

With the screaming success of horror programs like FX’s American Horror Story and AMC’s The Walking Dead, it’s only logical that basic cable networks are racing to get in on the action. Although this fall’s Dracula update, starring Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, has been perhaps less of a smash hit than the Peacock network expected, that’s not enough to prevent NBC from green-lighting a four-hour miniseries adaptation of the horror classic Rosemary’s Baby.
The project, which was announced back in July, will take its cues more from the 1967 Ira Levin novel than the subsequent Roman Polanski chiller. However, unlike the novel, NBC’s miniseries will take place in Paris, not New York City. The story will follow a young woman and her husband who move into a creepy apartment with an eerie history. When the woman becomes pregnant, she soon comes to suspect that her husband »

Telltale Games has not yet revealed the launch details for The Walking Dead: Season Two, but thanks to a blog post on Major Nelson we now know that Episode 1: All That Remains is scheduled to arrive on the Xbox 360 on December 18th — one day after its release on Steam.
Aside from the release date, the update also reveals that all four episodes in The Walking Dead: Season Two can be purchased for $5 each, or as part of a $15 Season Pass. Last year I made the mistake of not picking up the Season Pass, because I was initially skeptical of the adventure game format for the IP. Needless to say, I’ll be taking advantage of the $5 savings this time around.
For those of you who may have missed out on some or all of the first season of The Walking Dead, the post on Major Nelson also »

In case you missed the memo, the new "Game of Thrones" video game from Telltale is something to get very, very excited over. And now everyone doesn't have to get excited over it just once.
Some new details about the upcoming project come via press release, which says the deal between Telltale Games and HBO Global Licensing is a "multi-year, multi-title partnership." That means fans will getting multiple installments of the "Game of Thrones" game over several years at least.
Thus far the closest thing Telltale has done to this project is their "The Walking Dead" series. The first "season" of that game (five chapters of one story arc released over the course of a year) earned the Game of the Year title at the Spike Video Game Awards in 2012 and was a total success. With "Season 2" coming out soon, it's easy to see the format Telltale can follow with the "Game of Thrones" games. »
It didn’t have to face The Walking Dead this week but Homeland still had the competition of the NFL on NBC. Nonetheless, the Showtime series pulled in 2.1 million viewers on Sunday to hit a new Season 3 high. That result, up a tick from a previous cycle high on October 27 of 2 million, also made episode 11 of the current season’s Homeland the top show on premium cable. Overall, the penultimate Homeland of the current season had 2.7 million viewers over two plays on Sunday. Despite some critical knocks, Season 3 of Homeland has proven the most successful the show has had. It is currently up 17% on average over Season 2. The Claire Danes starrer wasn’t the only Showtime series to hit a new high this past weekend. Freshman Masters of Sex drew 1.23 million viewers for a season high of its own. The second to last episode of the renewed show’s first season rose 15% over last week. »

Never have we had more and better television -- numerous platforms, countless series.

Whether it was Skyler on Breaking Bad, Rita on Dexter, Lori on The Walking Dead, or Margaret on Boardwalk Empire, TV wives often seem to be on the receiving end of a lot of hate, even when their on-screen husbands are often guilty of much worse crimes. So it was not altogether surprising when many Sons of Anarchy fans set their sights — and vitriol — on Jax Teller’s wife Tara.
Granted, she faked a pregnancy and a miscarriage to trick Jax into signing a restraining order against his own mother. And granted, she was doing this to get her sons »

Sneak Peek newly released spoiler images from AMC's ultra-violent 'zombie' TV series "The Walking Dead", that show the ultimate fate of villain 'The Governor' (David Morrissey), partially revealed in the series mid-season finale episode "Too Far Gone", written by Seth Hoffman and directed by Ernest Dickerson, that aired December 1, 2013:
The Governor appeared in 21 episodes of the series (2012-2014), but in "Too Far Gone", the Governor is stabbed in the back by Michonne (Danai Gurira).
As the Governor falls to the ground, with 'walkers' approaching, the character 'Lilly' (Audrey Marie Anderson) shoots him, presumably in the head, but the camera cuts away for the final shot, leaving his fate up in the air.
But in new images released by AMC, the Governor is revealed with a fatal bullet wound in his forehead, that will save him from becoming a walker.

The makers of the Walking Dead games are bringing the world of Westeros to consoles, but plenty of other shows deserve the same treatment
It shouldn't surprise anyone that a new video game based on Game of Thrones is on the way. This time it's being produced by Telltale Games, who also made The Walking Dead, which proved it's now possible to make an expansive, emotionally involving game based on an acclaimed television show. What's more, the world of George Rr Martin is so vast and varied that it arguably suits an interactive experience even more than it does a linear TV show. But if it works, we can expect several other video-game spin-offs from television shows to pop up. Here are five that deserve to be first in line.
Perhaps The Walking Dead games are a little bit too mainstream for you. That's fine – why not play »

TV Guide spoke with Robert Kirkman about the fate of a fan favorite character and he surprisingly confirmed a few details about their fate as well as where the group is headed after the events of the midseason finale. Natalie Abrams of TV Guide reported: Spoiler:[ I pumped Robert Kirkman for some scoop on the second half of the season and he offered up three interesting tidbits: 1) Carol will definitely return before the end of the season; 2) The Sanctuary, which was discussed in that radio message, will come into play; and 3) Via flashbacks, there will be glimpses into the lives of our favorite characters, likely including Michonne.] The Walking Dead will return in February.

Of all the top ten lists, the American Film Institute's annual best of film list is one that carries a lot of weight. Composed of leaders from the film, entertainment, business and academic communities, this prestigious group made headlines years ago when they voted "Citizen Kane" the best film ever made.
They don't rank their top tens and don't explain their choices, they simply list their top films which usually includes a healthy mix of mainstream and art house with the occasional Wtf selection creeping in.
If there's one limitation though it's that the organisation's nature means only American films are selected, so great foreign fare doesn't make the list. This year the honorees (in alphabetical order) are:

Last month it was rumoured that Telltale Games - the publisher behind the rather splendid video game adaptation of The Walking Dead - was turning its attention towards Westeros for a game based upon HBO's hit fantasy series Game of Thrones. Well, Telltale has now confirmed the reports, posting on Twitter that "It's True! We're working with HBO to create an all-new episodic game series based on Game Of Thrones in 2014!"
"We'll be taking advantage of all the fiction to make something great," says Telltale CEO Dan Connors. "We're just really getting into it right now and thinking about characters - who has the most at stake, who has the biggest impact on the world."
This is definitely good news for fans of Game of Thrones and if The Walking Dead is any indication, this new title should have little trouble banishing the ghost of the rather disappointing Game of Thrones RPG from Cyanide, »

Vgx was the new name of the Video Game Awards that Spike normally hosts annually to celebrate gaming. Spike, while a often dumbed down network, is one of the few networks to still host some video game coverage. However in terms of celebrating it every year, it’s often treated as something akin to a Frat party, despite offering some genuine thrills for gamers. Vgx is without a doubt the worst attempt so far and it could possibly hurt gaming on TV in the future.
Gaming is extremely popular on the internet. Gamers on Youtube have some of the highest subscriber and view counts than any other channels on the website. The advent of Twitch and the next-gen ability to Stream everything, these channels take in enough money to make full time paying jobs out of gaming. So Spike/Viacom wasn’t entirely in the wrong to target that audience. »
