Because it's NBC's turn to air the Primetime Emmy Awards this year, and because the Peacock would understandably rather air its lucrative Sunday night NFL package in September, the ceremony will take place in late August again. And as an added wrinkle, this year's ceremony will actually happen on a Monday, August 25 at 8 p.m., with Seth Meyers hosting. Between now and then, Dan and I will be making our picks for both who should and will win many of the major categories — if you're wagering, keep in mind that Dan tends to be much better at predicting the winners than I am, but also that he was just as flummoxed as I by last year's winners like Jeff Daniels, Merritt Wever and Bobby Cannavale — continuing with our look at the comedy and drama lead actor categories. Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series Louis C.K., "Louie" Don Cheadle, "House of Lies" Ricky Gervais, »

It was a decisive win for NBC’s Hannibal, earning the title of Best Drama Series in the 2014 EWwys—EW.com’s 7th annual awards for the Emmy-snubbed—with roughly 40 percent of the vote.
“We are in such a wonderful age where fans now have a face thanks to social media, and they have rallied around Hannibal with a Fannibal circle of protection, and love, and light,” creator Bryan Fuller told EW Radio while accepting the honor. “So grateful for them supporting the cannibal in every way that they do.”
As Fuller shared at Comic-Con, the season 3 premiere may feel »

For those who need a little more incentive to get invested in the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, nationally syndicated oddsmaker Benjamin Eckstein has a solution – gamble on it.
While betting money on the Emmys in the state of Nevada might technically be illegal, it doesn’t mean the odds aren’t worth a glance (see full list below).
According to Eckstein, HBO’s decision to enter “True Detective” into the competition as a drama series instead of miniseries is unlikely to pay off for the crime drama, as it faces stiff competition from “Breaking Bad,” which sits at 1/5 odds ($5 would win $1) to “True Detective’s” 5/1.
Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black,” meanwhile, is Eckstein’s surprise favorite to win in the best comedy series category at 3/2 odds, which would hypothetically end “Modern Family’s” four-year winning streak. ABC’s defending champ, undefeated in the comedy category, is close behind at 5/2 odds. »

Following the first clip released earlier this month, Lifetime has debuted the first trailer for their upcoming TV movie The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, which airs Monday, September 1 at 9 Pm Et on Lifetime.
While Saved by the Bell became a big hit, and made stars out of cast members Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario López, Dustin Diamond, Lark Voorhies, Elizabeth Berkley and Tiffani Thiessen, this TV movie explores all of the turmoil behind-the-scenes between these young actors.

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 »

"Hard Drive" is a tough, challenging Independent Canadian film from veteran filmmaker William D. (Bill) MacGillivray. A recent recipient of the Governor General's Award for Visual and Media arts, the Genie-nominated filmmaker has been crafting feature and documentary film for over 30 years.
With a story about young love between two people with troubled pasts, MacGillivray chose Laura Slade Wiggins to play Debs, a runaway with a dark secret held on the drive of her computer. Wiggins may be best known for her role as Karen on the long-running TV show "Shameless," yet her resume shows a breadth of roles, from features to guest appearances to TV movies.
Moviefone Canada spoke to MacGillivray and Wiggins in Toronto before the film's public premiere in the city.
Moviefone Canada: Laura, what brought you to the project?
Laura Slade Wiggins: I got an e-mail a couple of years ago with an offer for a Canadian indie film. »

The first round of 2014 Emmy Awards were handed out at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony on Saturday (August 16) night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The ceremony, which precedes the Monday, August 25 Primetime Emmy Awards telecast, offered signs of hope for a number of drama and comedy hopefuls. Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black," for example, won Emmys for editing, series casting and for Uzo Aduba, who is considered a guest actress for the purposes of these awards. No other comedy series was able to build any other momentum going into next week's show, with "The Big Bang Bang Theory," "Nurse Jackie," "How I Met Your Mother" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" grabbing isolated tech prizes and Jimmy Fallon winning the Guest Actor in a Comedy Series award for the second time in three years for his "Saturday Night Live" hosting duties.

Like many of her book's fans, “The Giver” author Lois Lowry was nervous at first about some of the changes director Phillip Noyce and the filmmakers behind the adaptation had made to her classic Ya dystopian novel. Lowry and Noyce sat down with TheWrap to talk about their movie, how it fits into the current landscape of trendy Ya dystopian novels and why the lead character Jonas, played by Brenton Thwaites, had been aged up from 12 in the books to 18 in the movie.

Samuel Goldwyn Films released the first trailer for “Rudderless” Thursday, William H. Macy’s (“Shameless”) directorial debut. Pic stars Billy Crudup as an ad executive whose life is torn apart by the death of his son. He discovers his son’s demo tape and performs the songs to live out his son’s dreams.
The film, which features Anton Yelchin as a young musician who forms a band with Crudup as well as Selena Gomez, Felicity Huffman and Laurence Fishburne in supporting roles, premiered out of competition at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in January.
“Rudderless” will open in limited release on Oct. 17.

William H. Macy has been a phenomenal actor going all the way back to Fargo and through films like Magnolia and up to his recent starring role on Showtime's Shameless.

Macy's directorial debut, Rudderless, has premiered it's first trailer and the movie looks pretty damn good. Starring Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin, Selena Gomez, Laurence Fishburne, and Macy's wife »

In our new prediction slugfest, Gold Derby Editors swoon over Ricky Gervais' emotional performance as the self-titled "Derek," but argue the Best Comedy Actor race could also go to category first-timer William H. Macy ("Shameless") or three-time champ Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory"). Joining me in our latest video (watch below) are Charles Bright and Ralph Galvan as we analyze the episodes submitted to Emmy judges as examples of their best work from the past TV season. Gervais went with "Episode 2.6," Macy chose "Lazarus" and Parsons submitted "The Relationship Diremption." The other nominees are: Don Cheadle for "House of Lies" ("Wreckage"), Louis C.K. for "Louie ("Model") and Matt LeBlanc for "Episodes" ("Episode 306"). -Break- Emmy Episode Analysis: Read our Pros and Cons for Ricky Gervais | William H.

"The Giver" seems to take place in a faraway, dystopian universe where feelings are illegal. But is it that far-out a concept? Cameron Monaghan, who plays a pal of the story's protagonist Jonah (Brenton Thwaites), doesn't think so. We sat down with Monaghan, a vet of Showtime's "Shameless" as well as the movies "Click" and "Prom," to talk about filming the most daunting scene in "The Giver" and whether or not Asher, his character, is ultimately likable. »

[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots. I know some people will be all "These are reviews." If you've read me, you've read my reviews and you know this isn't what they look like.] Show: "The Mysteries of Laura" (NBC) The Pitch: I'll go with NPR's Linda Holmes on this one: "CopMom MomCop." Quick Response: "The Mysteries of Laura" is a broad cop drama, a broad family drama and a broad character-driven comedy all squished together. In order to achieve the absolute peak of its potential value, this premise needed a director with a genuine mastery of tones, somebody gifted with each of those sides. I think a Mimi Leder or a Tommy Schlamme or somebody from the "Shameless" factory could have made that side of things work (even if the script still would have been weak). Instead, "Mysteries of Laura" got McG and the resulting pilot is just an amorphous and ludicrous blob of hammy inconsistency centered around a performance from Debra Messing that's best described as "Robert Greenblatt loves Debra Messing, but Robert Greenblatt doesn't quite get what Debra Messing does well. »

Ricky Gervais has made a career out of the uncomfortable. Both through his sitcoms “The Office” and “Extras” (co-created with and Stephen Merchant) and in his standup routines, he’s created situations and subjects that poke fun standards of decorum.
But with his latest project, the comedy “Derek,” Gervais has created a character most viewers didn’t really expect from him: one who’s genuinely nice. The series, which is currently in its second season on Netflix and airs on Channel 4 in the U.K., also earned Gervais an Emmy nomination for his portrayal of the well-meaning, but perhaps simple, title character who deeply loves his job in a retirement home. There are, of course, awkward moments. But, as opposed to Gervais’ past projects, the situations that Derek and his friends find themselves in aren’t a result of their egos.
In an exclusive interview with Variety, Gervais talks about character development, »
