Venice Film Review: ‘Olive Kitteridge’

14 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

She’s “Ollie” to her husband and “Mrs. K” to the students in her middle-school mathematics class, and her daughter-in-law insists on calling her “Mom.” But audiences will forever know this unforgettable, irascible woman as “Olive Kitteridge,” thanks to the remarkably complex portrayal Frances McDormand delivers over the course of a four-hour HBO miniseries she optioned and developed herself, bringing aboard her “Laurel Canyon” helmer, Lisa Cholodenko, to direct. Even more so than 2011’s “Mildred Pierce,” .

Elizabeth Strout wrote “Olive Kitteridge” not as a traditional novel, but rather as a collection of 13 short stories — a portrait of small-town Crosby, Maine, with its minor crises and major hypocrisies, interlinked by the presence (sometimes peripheral) of Olive’s character. Such a format makes it all but impossible to reduce the Pulitzer-winning book’s nonlinear quarter-century span to an efficient two-hour narrative. Besides, the feature format is better suited to heroes with clearly »

Review: Reese Witherspoon goes for it all in 'Wild'

29 August 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Telluride — There is a moment near the end of "Wild" where Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) runs into a young boy and his grandmother out on a weekend hike. Strayed has walked hundreds of miles on the Pacific Crest Trail in an attempt to deal with personal, emotional pain that has plagued her most of her young adult life. After learning of Strayed's heartbreaks the young boy (Evan O'Toole) sings her the song "Red River Valley." In the hands of a lesser director this scene could have been overly saccharine and misplaced. But director Jean-Marc Vallée makes it as artful and touching as it needs to be. Clearly, we should not have doubted him. Vallée was one of the main creative forces of "Dallas Buyers Club," but did not earn a Best Director Oscar nod. Instead, he made due with an editing nomination. This was disheartening in some respects because there »

The Newsroom Season 3 - Copier Teaser

26 August 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

HBO has released the first teaser for the third and final season of Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom. The clever promo features a copying machine printing out pages of the script for  the final episodes, and they tease story plot points of espionage, a court case, and more. I've really enjoyed the first two seasons of this series, and I wish it wasn't so short lived, but hopefully it has a strong ending.

HBO Programming president Michael Lombardo had this to say in a statement:

The Newsroom is classic Aaron Sorkin – smart, riveting and thought-provoking. I’m sure this farewell season will be one to remember.”

Series co-star Olivia Munn added that the show will end the way Sorkin wants it to:

“I love [Season 3 being the last] because, one, I think it’s so much better to do a project where everyone’s excited about doing it and the work is really great and you’re excited about. »

The Emmy Awards stuck with old favorites last night

26 August 2014 12:09 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

There was a sense going into the Emmy Awards yesterday that it might be a chance to say “out with the old and in with the new”, so to speak. Essentially, last night was shaping up to be a big battle between old guard winners like Breaking Bad and Modern Family against young bucks like Orange is the New Black and True Detective. I don’t watch enough television to have done official predictions, but I certainly had a rooting interest in seeing some of the top notch new shows take home prizes. Well, last night proved that the Emmy voters like what they like, as old favorite beat back new contenders fairly consistently. I’ll post all of the winners at the end of this piece, but I wanted to focus in on a few of the categories in particular. Mainly the versions of Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Actress for this show. »

2014 Emmy Award Winners Dominated by 'Breaking Bad'

26 August 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night the 2014 Emmy Award winners were announced with "Breaking Bad" taking home top honors with five wings including Outstanding Drama Series, followed by "Modern Family" with three wins including Outstanding Comedy Series. FX programs "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo" each took home two awards including an Outstanding Miniseries win for "Fargo". Meanwhile, new shows such as "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley" went home empty handed and for all the fanfare it received in its first season, including 12 Emmy nominations, "True Detective" only took home one win, that being for director Cary Joji Fukunaga". Personally, I don't give a lick about the Emmys, it's right there with the Grammys in terms of worthless awards shows for me. It's a show wherein people must nominate themselves and while most award shows are no better, this one is down there near the bottom for me. So, with that said, »

Breaking Bad Tops True Detective at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

26 August 2014 2:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Breaking Bad’s amazing final season always meant that it was a likely winner come awards season. However, the debut of the critically acclaimed True Detective earlier this year did leave many wondering whether it might rob the end to Walter White’s story of one final sweep of prizes at last night’s Emmy Awards.

As it turns out, Breaking Bad would end up being rewarded for those amazing final episodes, though True Detective did earn a very well deserved award for director Cary Joji Fukunaga (who helmed all eight instalments).

The UK was represented by Sherlock, and that too did exceptionally well, walking away with Emmys for Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and writer Steven Moffat. Looking at the results, it’s hard to imagine anyone being too upset with the results, though many Game of Thrones fans won’t be happy to see that it was again snubbed. »

It's been a while since his last acting win at the Emmys, but Bryan Cranston finally triumphed for the fourth time on Monday night.
