Five best moments: Penelope Wilton

22 July 2016 6:37 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

As she tackles the Queen in Steven Spielberg’s The Bfg, out this week, we look back over the greatest big-screen hits of the Downton Abbey actor

It feels as if Penelope Wilton has been around forever. She’s an instant signifier of class and comfort and quintessential middle Englishness. More of a fixture on the small screen than the big, her natural warmth has been globally showcased in Downton Abbey (and currently in pants drama Brief Encounters). But there is more to her than just an immaculately cosy facade: in The Bfg, out today, Steven Spielberg channels a latent imperiousness. Other roles have drawn out frustration, even spite.

Here are five key big-screen Wilton performances.

Divergent Film Franchise to Conclude as TV-Movie, Followed by Series

20 July 2016 3:51 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

In what can only be described as a surprising turn of events, Lionsgate has opted to skip a theatrical release of its final Divergent film, and instead release it as a TV-movie — before launching a small-screen spinoff series.

RelatedShailene Woodley Poised to Join HBO’s Big Little Lies Opposite Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon

As first reported by our sister site Variety, the decision comes after disappointing box office results/critical reaction for the third installment of the franchise, Allegiant, which opened to a lackluster $29 million in March — a 44 percent drop from 2015 release Insurgent.

The One Thing The Oscars Can Learn from The Emmys

18 July 2016 7:06 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The need for diversity goes beyond membership.

Thursday morning, Emmy nominations were announced and many shows, actors, directors, and networks had big cause to celebrate. Film School Rejects favorite Game of Thrones scored a whopping 23 nominations with The People v. O.J. Simpson close behind at 22. USA’s smash hit Mr. Robot entered into the race and FX’s critical darling The Americans finally, four seasons in, has been recognized for its outstanding work. Apart from the nominations for The Americans, the most exciting thing about these nominations is how welcoming the Emmy awards are to diversity, new viewing platforms, and recognizing shows outside of their comfort zone. Where the Emmys are totally about change and progression, the Oscars seem to be stuck in their old ways. Yes, AMPAS did just induct hundreds of new and diverse members, but the effect of these new voting members has not been felt yet and their newfound diversity is mostly in »

2016 Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Drama Series

14 July 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quick Hits

Last Year’s Winner: “Game of Thrones” Was It an Upset? Yes. Most expected “Mad Men” to win in its final year of eligibility. Still Eligible? Yes Hot Streak: Despite dominating in total nominations and wins throughout, HBO hadn’t won a trophy for Outstanding Drama Series in seven years — until last year. Fun Fact: The last time HBO won — prior to last year — there were only five nominees in the category. It expanded to six in 2008 and now stands at seven, which began in 2015.

Can anything stop “Game of Thrones”? The HBO ratings juggernaut and record-breaking Emmy winner last year (12 wins, the most for a single series in one year) only seems better positioned in 2016, garnering a boatload of nominations to lead the field. It even snagged a few extra acting nods, and »

2016 Emmy Predictions: Outstanding TV Movie

Quick Hits

Last Year’s Winner: “Bessie” Was It an Upset? Nope Hot Streak: HBO has won this category nine years in a row… Fun Fact: …but the network lost when the category merged with miniseries in 2011. The show that beat it? The PBS entry “Downton Abbey,” which would later be deemed a drama series, and thus, would have been ineligible the only year HBO has lost since 2004.

Okay, so here’s how “A Very Murray Christmas” can win an Emmy.

Voters skew hard toward American-made productions, snubbing their nose at the British entries “Luther” & “Sherlock: The Abominable Bride.” That leaves three choices. People realize that — while well-acted — “Confirmation” just isn’t in the same league as “All the Way” or “A Very Murray Christmas,” and decide to eliminate it from consideration. »

Emmys Upstage Oscars In Diversity and Female-Led Programs In 2016

14 July 2016 2:53 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

After Oscars So White, when every single one of the 20 acting nominations were given to white thespians, Thursday’s Emmy nominations revealed far more diversity in the television industry. While the Motion Picture Academy responds well to certain high-end dramas such as Best Picture winner “12 Years a Slave,” those films just don’t come along that often. (So far Oscars 2017 look to tell a different story.)

Unlike the movie industry, in television more shows are aimed at more diverse audiences from the start, which gives 19,000 Emmy voters a wealth of options. The television industry casts a wide net, aiming shows at every audience segment, especially women, who are consistently underserved by the Hollywood studios, despite their strong box office stats.

Emmys 2016 Trivia: Amy Poehler & Tina Fey Shared A Nod & 20 Other Wild Things About This Year’s Nominations

14 July 2016 1:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made history Thursday morning. The pals were nominated in the Guest Actress in a Comedy Emmy category for hosting “Saturday Night Live.”

That’s not unusual — “SNL” hosts are nominated for Emmys all the time. But here’s what’s unique: Poehler and Fey were nominated as a single, combined entity. Earlier this year, the TV Academy accepted their joint submission, and their names appeared together on nomination ballots.

That’s never happened in an acting category before because, well, a person is generally one person. But this was a unique circumstance: “SNL” guest hosts are eligible for guest star Emmys – but usually even comedy teams are nominated separately. (For example, Keegan-Michael Key is nominated this year for “Key & Peele” in the supporting comedy actor category, but Jordan Peele is not. »

Emmys: Nearly 25% of Acting Nominees Are Non-White, but Drama Still Lags Behind

14 July 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For the second year in a row, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences can laugh at movies’ #OscarsSoWhite problem. Actors of color nabbed 18 of the major 73 acting nominations in the categories of lead and supporting performers in drama, comedy, and limited series. That’s just shy of 25%, and even an improvement over last year’s historic Emmys, where 16 actors of color were among the 75 nominees.

Every category for a lead actor featured a nominee of color: First-time nominee Rami Malek, who is Egyptian-American, broke into the club for lead actor in a drama, which last year was entirely white. Similarly, “black-ish”’s Tracee Ellis Ross broke the color barrier in lead actress for a comedy, which was also an all-white slate last year.

This year’s nominees were also more diverse behind the camera. Aziz Ansari, nominated for lead actor in a comedy for “Master Of None,” was also nominated for writing and directing; so was »

2016 Emmy Directing Nominees: Writers Rule Comedy, Few Women Helmers Break into Top Series Races

14 July 2016 1:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A funny thing happened this year with the Emmy nominations for directing a comedy series: Most of the nods went to writers.

Meanwhile, female directors are few and far between in the top series races. One notable entrant is Beyonce, who earned a mention, shared with Kahlil Joseph, for variety special for the hourlong avant-garde film that premiered on HBO in tandem with the release of her album “Lemonade” in April. Also in the mix this year is Danish helmer Susanne Bier, up for limited series for her work as the sole director of AMC’s six-hour limited series “The Night Manager.”

The list of comedy series directing nominees is dominated by showrunners and those who came up the ranks as writers.

Silicon Valley’s” Alec Berg and Mike Judge each earned a nom for the HBO comedy, Berg for “Daily Active Users” and Judge for “Founder Friendly.” “Transparent” creator/exec producer Jill Soloway, who »

Primetime Emmy Awards Target Game Of Thrones

14 July 2016 12:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Emmy nods have hit the Internet, and there are a few surprises among these stellar examples of Primetime TV. Game of Thrones leads the pack with a whopping 23 nominations, which probably will not surprise anyone who has tuned in to the show this season. It’s certainly one of the better programs on TV right now, and this season has been particularly stellar.

More surprising – and, in some ways, more deserved – are several nods to Mr. Robot, including an Outstanding Drama and Lead Actor In A Drama for Rami Malek. Christian Slater gets nothing, despite his Golden Globe win, but I guess we can’t have everything. While Malek has some serious competition in his category, including Hollywood heavyweights Liev Schrieber and Kevin Spacey, here’s hoping that he takes home the prize. He certainly deserves it.

While Game of Thrones dominates in many categories, there’s quite a »
