ITV Orders Up Second Season of Glittery Royal Drama ‘Victoria’

23 September 2016 5:52 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ITV, Britain’s biggest commercial broadcaster, has ordered a second season of hit period drama “Victoria,” about the early years of Queen Victoria’s reign.

The show has become ITV’s top-rated drama of 2016 since its debut last month, and will be broadcast in the U.S. starting Jan. 15 on PBS, in the Sunday night “Downton Abbey” slot. The show stars Jenna Coleman of “Doctor Who” fame as the young monarch and Tom Hughes as her husband, Prince Albert.

“Even though she reigned in the 19th century, Victoria is a heroine for our times,” said screenwriter and executive producer Daisy Goodwin.

Coleman and Hughes have been confirmed to return for the second season, which will be written by Goodwin and produced by U.K. independent Mammoth Screen. Goodwin said that the new season will focus on the “very modern dilemma of how to juggle children with her husband and her job.”

19 September 2016 5:09 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Maggie Smith scored her third Outstanding Supporting Actress Emmy last night for her indelible portrayal of Downton Abbey‘s Dowager Countess. She also took some repeated ribbing from host Jimmy Kimmel. He noted at the top of the show this was the ninth career Emmy nomination for Smith and the ninth time she was a no-show at the ceremony. Referring to her as “Downton absent,” he wondered: "What is wrong with us? Why do we keep nominating this woman?" When Smith ultimately… »

Maggie Smith Wants Her Emmy From Jimmy Kimmel

19 September 2016 5:01 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Who says at at 81 you can’t be pretty, witty and bright? Dame Maggie Smith definitely is all three, with a dash of sass.

Smith, a nine-time Emmy nominated actress and four -time recipient, was honored Sunday as supporting actress in a drama series, for her role as Violet, the sharp-tongued Dowager Countess of Grantham, in “Downton Abbey.” She previously won Emmys for the role in 2011 and 2012.

But before presenters Minnie Driver and Michael Weatherly could accept the award on Smith’s behalf, host Jimmy Kimmel intercepted the trophy and told Smith to retrieve it herself.

“No, no, no, no, no. We’re not mailing this award to her. Maggie, if you want this it’ll be in the lost and found,” Kimmel joked.

Smith showed two can play that game and put out a statement formally accepting her award.

“I was very astonished and pleased to win the award. I »

‘Downton Abbey’ Star Maggie Smith Throws Shade Back at Jimmy Kimmel After Emmys Jab

19 September 2016 4:18 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Say what you will about Maggie Smith; she can take a joke. And she can give one too. After serving as the butt of Emmy host Jimmy Kimmel’s jokes on Sunday night, the “Downton Abbey” actress shot back at Kimmel on Monday in the classiest but most effective of ways. During Sunday night’s Emmys broadcast, after Minnie Driver and Michael Weatherly announced that Smith — who was not in attendance at the ceremony — had won the award for supporting actress in a drama series, the ABC host snatched the trophy away and declared that the Academy wouldn’t be mailing it. »

After being absent during Sunday night's awards show, the Downton Abbey star and outstanding supporting actress in a drama series winner took to Twitter to accept the honor and respond to host Jimmy Kimmel, who made her the butt of his longest opening-monologue joke.

Emmys 2016: The Best and Worst Moments, from Great Speeches to ‘Stranger Things’

19 September 2016 2:36 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards didn’t lure in a larger audience than last year’s record-low viewership number. In fact, the ABC telecast dipped even further. Despite peak TV producing more great television than ever before, viewers haven’t been warming to the Emmys. Blame “too much TV” or a confusing September air date, but even though TV’s biggest night hasn’t been pulling in the same stats as yesteryear, the actual production has been, well, peaking.

Last Week’S Episode: ‘Star Trek’: Will There Ever Be Another TV Show Like It?

Jimmy Kimmel did a fine job with his monologue. The speeches were on point, and there were plenty of surprise winners to keep everyone in the Microsoft Theater and watching at home on the edge of their seats. These key elements make up the foundation of any great awards show, making the 2016 Emmys a ceremony to remember. »

68th Primetime Emmy Award Winners List

19 September 2016 1:44 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Last night was the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, where the television academy takes the time to recognize some of the greatest accomplishments in the industry for the past season. Not surprisingly, the show that came out on top this year was none other than Game of Thrones, a show that seemingly only gets stronger and stronger as time goes on (despite the absence of source material at this point).

This also marked the year that Game of Thrones surpassed Frasier for the record total of Emmys won during a show run. Frasier previously held the record with 37 wins, and with two seasons left, Game of Thrones has secured the title with 38 wins, a record it's sure to barrel over over the course of the next couple seasons.

Below is the list of nominees and winners for several major categories at this year's Emmys!

Smith won an Emmy for her role on the show on Sunday and has previously stated that her character Violet would be too old to appear in a film version of the show, but co-star Michael Fox recently implied that Smith was signed up for a big screen adaptation, the Guardian reports.

“The film without her would still be good with all the other actors, but it puts a stamp of quality with her in it,” Fox told Mail Online at a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) event in Los Angeles over the weekend. “Downton Abbey” creator and writer Julian Fellowes expressed his enthusiasm for the project at the same event.
