When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.
The dramatic comedy is directed by Shawn Levy, and based on the hilarious and poignant best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper. It features a starring ensemble cast including Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman (“Arrested Development »

Emmy nominations were announced this morning and as usual, there were a number of snubs and surprises, which the Internet collectively whined about this morning. Rather than continue to mourn the lack of a nomination for Tatiana Maslany (which I admittedly complained about as well), actual solutions need to be pitched. Sadly, “chain Emmy voters to a chair and make them actually watch Orphan Black” seems somewhat implausible and definitely criminal, so here are five reasonable and seemingly easy solutions the Emmys should consider next year.
1. A Dramedy Category
One of the most-nominated newcomers announced on Emmy morning was Orange is the New Black, which with 12 total nods amassed more than any other comedy, including Modern Family, Veep, and The Big Bang Theory. Yet most fans of the show would hesitate to classify it as a comedy. Compared to most of the other shows in the category, it certainly does not fit the pattern. »

Melissa Maerz: Jeff,
When the Emmy nominations were announced this morning, I was sitting at my desk, shouting, “Hodor! Hodor! Hodor!” Game of Thrones dominated with 19 nominations! Hot pie for everyone! I’d quibble with the fact that Noah Hawley’s fantastic update of Fargo didn’t get a best drama nod, especially since it was the runner-up with 18 nominations, and The Good Wife was unjustly ignored in that category, coming off its best season ever—it might be the only network drama that I truly loved—but the rest of the list was pretty solid. Among the smartest choices »

• Oscar winner Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardner) may join Michael Fassbender (12 Years A Slave) in Dreamworks’ The Light Between Oceans based on the M.L. Stedman novel. Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine) is directing the film about a lighthouse keeper and his wife who raise 2-month-old baby after finding it in a rowboat next to a dead body. [The Wrap]
• Fifty Shades of Grey’s Dakota Johnson will star in Forever, Interrupted, another book-to-film adaptation. The debut novel from Taylor Jenkins Reid tells the story of a young woman who forms a relationship with the mother she never knew after her whirlwind marriage is cut short. »

Shawn Levy, director of robot fighting flick Real Steel, returns to the genre in which he found fame for the dramatic comedy This is Where I Leave You, which is based on the hilarious and poignant best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper; and features a starring ensemble cast including Jason Bateman (Arrested Development), Tina Fey (30 Rock) and Jane Fonda (Klute).

Creator Sam Shaw and director Thomas Schlamme of Wgn America’s new show “Manhattan” compared their recent work on the 1940s period drama to hit shows “Masters of Sex” and “The West Wing” during Wednesday night’s panel at the Paley Center for Media.
Schlamme said that “Manhattan” shares a lot of the DNA with “The West Wing” by balancing the world of politics with the world of human emotion.
“It was very important in this show that scientists talk like scientists,” he said. “It wasn’t that important that everyone understood everything the scientists were saying. That was the golden rule in ‘West Wing,’ we never had to stop to explain to the audience what these people were talking about because what they would feel is what was the relationship between those people.”
Schlamme added: “That’s how these two shows relate, they are about very large issues, but »

As predicted in who should be nominated for the Emmys the actual 2014 Emmy nominations provoked irritation and boredom by essentially copying and pasting the same names and series as the last several years. There were a few adjustments: True Detective rightfully knocked Homeland out of the Best Drama list, but did Downton Abbey and House of Cards really deserve slots over The Good Wife's best season yet, not to mention an outstanding year for The Americans? Hit the jump to learn the method behind this madness, as well as the picks for five surprises and five snubs from some of the non-major categories. First of all, it's important to note that no awards list is perfect. Not everyone or everything can be included, and there will always be personal favorites that fly under the radar that are never going to have a chance. That's ok. The problem is that »

With every Emmy announcement, there are the standard complaints about snubs. In such a fabulous year, it’s inevitable that certain things will get overlooked. Yet in the drama acting categories, there were some frustrating oversights, likely due to the fact that the shows weren’t deemed as Important with a capital I as others.
While Kerry Washington was recognized again in the lead actress category for her work on “Scandal” and respected vets Kate Burton and Joe Morton were nominated in the guest categories, it’s a shame many of Washington’s co-stars were overlooked in the supporting categories. Bellamy Young, who plays First Lady Mellie Grant, is one of the great success stories of the season. Mellie has gone from three lines in the “Scandal” pilot to the most vilified character on the show to one of the most beloved in the space of three seasons. The Critic »

Last year, Netflix made a big splash at the Emmys. Led by breakout hit House of Cards, the digital video platform scored 14 nominations and earned its first win when David Fincher took home a gold statuette for his directorial work on House of Cards' debut episode. This year, Netflix's Emmys presence has soared even higher. With Orange Is The New Black joining House of Cards in the spotlight, Netflix has earned 31 Emmy nominations, more than double last year's total. Orange Is The New Black debuted too late to earn any Emmy consideration in 2013, but it was a given that Jenji Kohan's excellent prison dramedy would receive plenty of love from Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Sure enough, Orange Is The New Black fared well; its 12 nominations are one fewer than the 13 given to House of Cards. Together, Netflix's two biggest hits combine for most of the site's nominations »

It’s Emmy nomination time across the pond again, and as per usual, there is the standard batch of choices that will please lots of people, a few obvious omissions – no Orphan Black love? Again? – and one or two head scratchers.There are a lot of repeat contenders among the main drama and comedy lists, with such shows as Breaking Bad, Game Of Thrones, House Of Cards, Mad Men, The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family, joined by more recent fare including Orange Is The New Black and True Detective. Some shows seem perennially destined to score nominations – take a bow, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report – while some actors have somehow managed to end up with more than one nomination. Nice work, Martin Freeman! (He’s up for Sherlock’s His Last Vow in the Miniseries Or Movie category and for his lead role in Fargo).Some nominations were obvious to predict, »

How sweet, fresh meat. No, we’re not channeling Freddy Krueger; instead, think Crazy Eyes from “Orange Is the New Black”. Thursday morning’s nominations announcement brought a welcome infusion of new contenders from Netflix’s “Orange” into the running for The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, joining its platform sibling “House of Cards” in securing a foothold in in each of the major category races. “House of Cards” is going up against “Breaking Bad”, “Game of Thrones” ,“Mad Men” “Downton Abbey” and “True Detective” in the Outstanding Drama Series contest, while “Orange Is the New Black” received a nod for Outstanding Comedy Series, along with “The Big Bang Theory” , “Louie”, “Modern Family” , surprise nominee “Silicon Valley” and “Veep”. »

Every July, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announces the year's primetime Emmy nominations, and every time, predictable outrage pours forth over the Academy's supposedly faulty judgment. Of course, now that we're living in the supposed new golden age of television, it's hard to argue against any of the Academy's choices. Then again, the abundance of stellar performances in well-written, sharply directed shows means that, inevitably, some favorites will be left out and that not everyone will be happy with the names that did make the cut. Here, then, is Moviefone's list of surprises and snubs from the 2014 Emmy nominations.
Kate McKinnon and Fred Armisen -- Sketch players rarely get nominated, in part because it's hard to single them out from their ensemble casts. But Armisen is half the ensemble on "Portlandia" by himself, while McKinnon was a clear standout this season on "Saturday Night Live" for her »

Unsurprisingly, HBO leads this year's nominees for the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. The network's early days of AIDS telemovie "The Normal Heart" dominated its categories with a full nine nominations amongst the major awards. Their fantasy series "Game of Thrones" scored the most nominations of any program overall - six for the major awards and a further thirteen amongst the technical awards.
Regarding the major awards, FX's "Fargo" was the show in front with eight nominations; "Breaking Bad," "Orange is the New Black," "House of Cards" and "Downton Abbey" were next with seven; "Game of Thrones," "Modern Family" and "American Horror Story: Coven" all scored six; "True Detective" and "Sherlock" got five each; "The Good Wife," "Mad Men" and "Veep" nabbed four apiece; and "Luther," "Masters of Sex," "Silicon Valley," "Scandal" and "Louie" all scored three each.

The 66th annual Emmy Award nominations were announced today and once again cable has trumped network television. HBO is especially happy with Game Of Thrones and True Detective taking a huge number of nominations, as did FX's American Horror Story and the debut season of Fargo. House Of Cards was nominated for Netflix for the second year in a row as was Orange Is The New Black. As evidenced by the surge in quality programming, the acting categories look nearly impossible to judge, »

The nominations for the 66th Emmy Awards were released this morning, and I’m surprisingly satisfied with the results. Though there were an overabundance of nominations for the so-so Netflix series House of Cards and not nearly enough (read: any) for BBC America’s criminally-underrated Orphan Black, including for lead actress Tatiana Maslany, the categories shook out in a mostly predictable, if fair way.
Of course, heavyweights Breaking Bad and True Detective will be duking it out in the Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series categories (the latter of which saw both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson swipe nominations). Other shows which scored big include American Horror Story: Coven, dominating the Miniseries categories, Game of Thrones, which has the most nominations at 19, and Fargo, trailing just behind with 18.
I’m particularly pleased to see Idris Elba squeak into Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie »
