The 66th Emmy Awards are next Monday (yep, Monday), and all this week, Vulture will be breaking down the major categories. Instead of giving our predictions for which shows and actors will take home awards, let’s focus on the question that matters more: Who should win? We’ve already tackled the comedy races. Today, we focus on drama.Outstanding Actor Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad Jon Hamm, Mad Men Matthew McConaughey, True Detective Woody Harrelson, True Detective Kevin Spacey, House of Cards Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom Trusting that Jon Hamm will see his day for the final run of Mad Men episodes next year (seriously, it can’t not happen), and not discounting the tremendous work of Woody Harrelson, this race comes down to Bryan Cranston’s carefully calibrated performance in “Ozymandias” and Matthew McConaughey’s showdown with the abyss in the finale of True Detective. Either would be a »

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 »

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. The two guest acting awards on the drama side »

Jim Carrey has taken to WhoSay to release a new promotional poster for the upcoming sequel Dumb and Dumber To, which parodies the tag-line and one-sheet for Scarlett Johansson-headlined action thriller Lucy. Check it out…
Released on November 14th in the USA and a month later on UK Shores, Dumb and Dumber To reunites Jim Carrey (Bruce Almighty) and Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom) as Lloyd and Harry, and co-stars Kathleen Turner (The Virgin Suicides), Laurie Holden (The Walking Dead), Rob Riggle (The Other Guys), Steve Tom (The Campaign), Rachel Melvin (Days of Our Lives) and Oscar Winner Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games) alongside the returning Cam Neely (Sea Bass) and Brady Bluhm (Billy in 4C).

Yeah, yeah, this seems crazy – dropping the King of All Hollywood Kudos Matthew McConaughey ("True Detective") for Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad") as my prediction in this Emmy home s-t-r-e-t-c-h. -Break- McConaughey not only swept Oscars, Golden Globes and SAG Awards earlier this year for "Dallas Buyer's Club," but he continued his march, undefeated, through the recent Critics Choice TV Awards and Television Critics Association Awards for "True Detective." Cranston, by contrast, lost his last two turns at Emmy bat, even getting trounced by Jeff Daniels ("The Newsroom") last year when "Breaking Bad" swept up everything else. So … doesn't that mean he's weak? No. Cranston proved his muscle in this category by romping three years in a row (2008-2010). Since then, he submitted good episodes to Emmy judges, but nothing at all like the masterpiece that is "Ozy..."' »
The Creative Arts Emmys take place this Saturday (Aug. 16) giving you precious little time to make or change your predictions in the race for Best Drama Guest Actress. While arguments could be made for any of the six nominees to take home the statuette, our 13 Emmy Experts think this race is an absolute lock for Allison Janney ("Masters of Sex"). Since Janney receives the support of 100% of our Experts, let's take a look to all of their #2 choices to see which nominee has the best shot of spoiling her fifth Emmy win. -Break- Emmy Episode Analysis: Read our Pros and Cons for Kate Burton | Jane Fonda | Allison Janney Eight of the 13 Experts have Jane Fonda ("The Newsroom") in second place: Mike Cidoni (Associated Press), Lynn Elber (Associated Press), Joyce Eng (TV Guide), Scott Feinberg (Hollywood Reporter), Steve Pond (The Wrap), Lynette Rice (People), Matt Roush (TV Guide) and Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby).

The Leftovers won’t get left behind by HBO: The network has just renewed the Damon Lindelof–Tom Perrotta drama for a second season. The pickup isn’t a surprise, since ratings for the show have been solid throughout its season-one run, and, more important, they've been consistent: Most of the people who watched the premiere are sticking with the show. Leftovers, averaging a same-day audience of between 1.6 million and 1.8 million viewers so far, is also doing a better job of holding onto the True Blood audience than Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom did when it aired behind TB last summer. While some critics have been vocal in their displeasure with The Leftovers’ creative direction (or lack thereof, as some have charged), another segment has been impressed with what Lindelof and Perrotta have done. (Our own Matt Zoller Seitz reviewed the show here; we’ve recapped each episode here.) All »

In our new prediction slugfest, Gold Derby Editors declare the 2014 Best Drama Actor race to be one of the toughest battles in recent memory. All six nominees could easily hear their names called on Emmy night thanks to their industry cred and episode selections, but we single out three in particular: three-time acting champ Bryan Cranston for "Breaking Bad" and "True Detective" co-stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. Joining me in our latest video (watch below) are Rob Licuria, Matt Noble, 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. Cranston went with "Ozymandias," Harrelson chose "The Locked Room" and McConaughey talked his way into "Form and Void." The other nominees are: Kevin Spacey for "House of Cards" ("Chapter 26"), Jeff Daniels for "The Newsroom" ("Election Night, Part 2") »
The TV vets are set to guest-star in a Scandal Season 4 episode, TVLine has learned, playing a power couple.
No further details on their storyline are available.
Lionsgate has released the first trailer for director David Koepp’s (Secret Window) upcoming comedy Mortdecai, which sees Johnny Depp (Transcendence) and his superbly-styled moustache leading an all-star cast that also includes Gwyneth Paltrow (Iron Man), Ewan McGregor (August: Osage County), Olivia Munn (The Newsroom), Paul Bettany (The Avengers), Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park) and Oliver Platt (Fargo).
Here’s the synopsis, followed by the trailer below…
Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.
Mortdecai is set for release in the UK on January 30th 2015 and February 6th 2015 in the States.

Back in the ’30s, a report on small towns rejecting rube feature films inspired an unforgettable Variety headline: “Stix Nix Hick Pix.”
Almost a century later, another group seems to be giving the raspberry to the proletariat. Emmy voters’ anointed 2014 lead actors for drama and comedy alike are distinctly cut from urban, white-collar cloth.
Polished operators pop up in dramas (Jon Hamm and Kevin Spacey in “Mad Men” and “House of Cards,” respectively) and comedies (sleazy consultant Don Cheadle in “House of Lies”; Matt LeBlanc as himself in “Episodes”).
Jim Parsons, brilliant scientist in “The Big Bang Theory”; chemistry teacher-turned-meth kingpin Bryan Cranston in “Breaking Bad”; news anchor Jeff Daniels in “The Newsroom”; Gotham standup Louis C.K.; slick cop Woody Harrelson in “True Detective” — one and all, these fellows work much more with their minds than their hands.

In our new prediction slugfest, Gold Derby Editors agree that Allison Janney ("Masters of Sex") is the frontrunner (and has been since last year) in the Emmy race for Best Drama Guest Actress, but that Jane Fonda ("The Newsroom") and Kate Burton ("Scandal") give great performances in their episode submissions and could dethrone Janney. Senior Editor Daniel Montgomery and I battle it out mano-a-mano-style in our latest video (watch below) as we analyze the episodes submitted to Emmy judges as examples of their best work from the past TV season. -Break- Janney entered "Brave New World," Fonda tried her luck with "Red Team III" and Burton went with "A Door Marked Exit." The other nominees are: Kate Mara for "House of Cards" ("Chapter 14"), Margo Martindale for "The Americans" ("Behind the Red Door") and Diana Rigg for "Game of Thrones" ("The Lion and ..." »

Question: Any info on the Big Bang Theory season premiere? —Joey
Ausiello: For those curious about Sheldon’s whereabouts all summer, I can confirm that he did, in fact, get on that train (vs. just squatting in the station, as some have speculated). The bigger question you should be asking yourself is whether he ever stepped foot outside the train during his epic journey.
Jane Fonda is back in the Emmy derby competing for Best Guest Drama Actress for her role in "The Newsroom" as eccentric media tycoon Leona Lansing – and this time she's got several strong plusses: she's nice, she's stoned (more on that in a moment) and she gives a rousing speech in the episode she submitted to judges ("Red Team III"). -Break- Read Daniel Montgomery's fascinating article about how big, purple speeches often translate into big Emmy wins, as demonstrated last year by Fonda's costar Jeff Daniels pulling off that jawdropping victory for Best Drama Actor. Fonda's Leona gave a speech in last year's submitted episode, too, but she was lashing out at her rascally staffers in that one. This time she's on their side, refusing to accept their resignations when a scandal erupts over their botched TV news coverage. And something else is different, too … "I was stone..." »
Jane Fonda — two-time Oscar winner, political activist, living testament to the power of physical fitness — went shopping at a Crate & Barrel recently. What she heard there told her that her new role in “The Newsroom” is connecting. “As I approach the salesgirl, she said, ‘Do you want to play golf or do you want to fuck around?'” Fonda told TheWrap. “It was a line spoken by her character on the HBO journalism drama, for which she's received her second straight Emmy nomination and the fourth of her career. “It's special when people remember a specific line you »
