Check out the brand new poster for This Is Where I Leave You.
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 »

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 »

If there is an awards show that doesn’t go according to script in Hollywood, it’s the Emmys where upsets happen all the time due to its complex voting process. Episode submissions and judging panels often bring frontrunners to their knees and ignite hopes for little-seen underdogs. It’s how Jeff Daniels ("The Newsroom") took down Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad") last year, but it’s also ironically how Cranston won for the freshman season of “Breaking Bad” against past winner James Spader ("Boston Legal"). So let’s have a look at the 10 possible upsets to look out for at this year’s Emmys: -Break- 1. Ricky Gervais could be up to his old tricks Remember when all eyes were on Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock") and Steve Carell ("The Office") back in 2007, and then the envelope opened and Ricky Gervais pulled off a jawdropper Comedy Actor win for "Extras"?

HBO has announced the star-studded supporting cast for its upcoming mini-series adaptation of Elizabeth Strout's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel "Olive Kitteridge". Lisa Cholodenko ("The Kids Are All Right") will helm the four-part mini-series which debuts on the network in November.
Set over a 25 year period in a seemingly placid New England town wrought with illicit affairs, crime and tragedy, the story follows a middle-school math teacher named Olive (Frances McDormand) who uses a wicked wit and harsh demeanor to mask a warm but troubled heart .
Richard Jenkins ("Burn After Reading") portrays Olive’s kind-hearted pharmacist husband, Henry. John Gallagher, Jr. ("The Newsroom") is their son Christopher, Peter Mullan ("Top of the Lake") plays fellow teacher Jim O’Casey, Rosemarie DeWitt ("Mad Men") as a shut-in named Rachel Coulson, Zoe Kazan ("Ruby Sparks") as the pharmacist worker Denise Thibodeau, Ann Dowd ("Side Effects") as a family friend.

In the days leading up to the announcement of the 2014 Emmy nominees, Variety set out to predict the most likely contenders in the drama, comedy, acting, miniseries and movies categories. While by no means an exact science, many of our picks made the final cut — with a few surprises joining them. Here’s how our predictions stacked up against the list final nominees:
The competition for best drama series led to an overabundance of contenders for the six slots that did not leave enough room for “The Good Wife,” as Variety had predicted. “Downton Abbey” once again garnered a nom, edging out the CBS drama and other hopeful pick “Masters of Sex”.
Although it was expected to come out ahead, two-time winner “Girls” did not see a nomination for comedy series this year. Nor did newcomer “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which was anticipated to pick up a series nom after »

Reese Witherspoon’s looking to find herself—and maybe a little awards recognition along the way.
The just-released trailer for Wild finds Witherspoon playing real-life author Cheryl Strayed, who decided to take a 1,000-mile-plus hike along the Pacific Crest Trail alone to atone for years of addictive and destructive behavior. The film is based on the book Strayed wrote about the experience.
Given the upcoming slate of films starring the Oscar-winner (including Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice), it looks like Witherspoon is prepping for a possible Matthew McConaughey-like career resurgence. And it’s worth noting that Witherspoon starred in Mud, »

A first trailer for Wild has been released.
Sparked by the breakdown of her marriage and the death of her mother, Strayed embarks on an intense 1,100-mile hike on the Pacific Coast Highway.
The trailer shows Witherspoon dealing with drug abuse, loneliness and extreme blisters as she goes on both a physical and mental journey to heal herself.
Last year, Witherspoon shared a photo of herself in character while filming the project. The real Cheryl Strayed described the picture as "crazy beautiful amazing".
The drama will have a limited Us release on December 5, 2014, and is scheduled for UK release on January 23, 2015. »

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.

How could “The Good Wife” not make the cut this year? That was the question top of mind for many bizzers Thursday morning as they digested the news of the 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards nominations.
No doubt the drama series competition was fierce this year but the universal acclaim for “Good Wife’s” fifth season made it seem a slam-dunk for a return to the top race. The fact that “Downton Abbey” made the cut in a year when buzz on the PBS period sudser was definitely down a few notches only magnified the surprise for “Good Wife” fans.
Among the other head-scratchers in this year’s race:
Snub: Michael Sheen. Hard to believe that voters didn’t rally behind his fine slow-burn work as the repressed but adventurous sex research pioneer William Masters in Showtime’s “Masters of Sex.” Sheen »

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 »

It should be easy to feel sympathy for Emmy voters in 2014. There is more good television now than ever before, available in more places (including non-traditional streaming video outfits like Netflix and Amazon) than ever before. There is abundant category confusion, where a show like "Shameless" can jump from drama to comedy after presenting its bleakest season ever, where "True Detective" can be considered as a drama series while "American Horror Story" is a miniseries even though the two shows have the same basic structure, where the fourth season of "Tremé" has to be considered a miniseries because it didn't produce enough episodes to qualify elsewhere, where voters are asked to consider what Jim Parsons does on "Big Bang Theory" in the same context of what Louis C.K. does as an actor on "Louie." It is an impossible job, really. Even TV critics whose sole job is to watch this »

The 2014 Emmy Award nominations were announced today and led by HBO's "Game of Thrones" with 19 total nominations. New show "Fargo" scored 18, followed by "American Horror Story", "Breaking Bad", The Normal Heart and not too far down the line "True Detective" with 12. The one show I love and continue to watch, "Hannibal" received zero nominations, but then again, I have never paid too much attention to the Emmys, primarily because people have to nominate themselves, something I've never understood. "Game of Thrones" 19 "Fargo" 18 "American Horror Story: Coven" 17 "Breaking Bad" 16 "The Normal Heart" 16 "Saturday Night Live" 14 "House of Cards" 13 "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" 12 "Downton Abbey" 12 "Orange Is the New Black" 12 From a network perspective, leading the pack was HBO, coming in just one nomination shy of a 100 and it wasn't even a close race with CBS coming in second with 47. HBO 99 CBS 47 NBC 46 FX Networks 45 ABC 37 The top shelf nominations are listed »
