Jane Fonda is back in the Emmy derby -- and this time she's 'stoned' (and nice)'

31 July 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

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..." »

What Jane Fonda Learned at Crate & Barrel About Her Emmy-Nominated ‘Newsroom’ Role

30 July 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

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 »

Emmys 2014: Who Should Win Lead Actor in a Drama? Take Our Poll!

30 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Pop Quiz: When did Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston last take home the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series? If you guessed 2013, 2012 or 2011 — a red ‘X’ and a loud ‘bzzzt’ are being sent in your direction.

This isn’t to say the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences hasn’t been good to Cranston — after all, he snagged the statuette in 2008, 2009 and 2010. But after sitting out 2011 due to ineligibility (Kyle Chandler triumphed that year for Friday Night Lights), Cranston has been beaten the last two Emmy seasons by Homeland‘s Damian Lewis and The Newsroom‘s Jeff Daniels. »

Emmy Guest Star Nominees Prove Integral to Storytelling

25 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A long time ago in another TV galaxy — we’re talking eight, even 10 years ago — the “guest star” appearance was a pretty well-defined event; the famous Hollywood actor or Broadway actress would turn up on an episode of a hit show, interact briefly with the well-oiled cast, toss off a few bon-mots, and depart, never to be seen again.

That’s all changed. Today, series creators, writers and showrunners carefully craft stories and arcs for “guest” spots, as evidenced by such varied turns as Jane Fonda’s in HBO’s “The Newsroom,” Nathan Lane’s in “Modern Family,” Joe Morton’s in “Scandal,” Diana Rigg’s in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Beau Bridges in Showtime’s “Master of Sex,” Bob Newhart’s in CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” and Paul Giamatti’s in PBS’ “Downton Abbey,” all Emmy nominees.

Amusing Full Trailer for the Comedy Dear White People

22 July 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A full trailer has been released for writer and director Justin Simien's Sundance hit, Dear White People. I've heard a lot of fantastic things about this movie, which is a comedic satire about race relations in modern America. I really like the humor that I'm seeing in the trailer, and this looks like a really entertaining movie worth checking out.  Here's a synopsis for the movie:

Winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival’s Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent, Dear White People is a sly, provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama. Writer/director Justin Simien follows a group of African American students as they navigate campus life and racial politics at a predominantly white college in a sharp and funny feature film debut that earned him a spot on Variety’s annual “10 Directors to Watch.”

Best of Late Night TV: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Cast Takes Over Kimmel, Kate Hudson Plays Box of Lies (Video)

22 July 2014 1:19 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" was back with a bang following a two-week hiatus, hosting the cast of "Guardians of the Galaxy." Chris Pratt, who plays Guardians leader Peter Quill, dominated the conversation, discussing his weight loss regimen ("vomiting, Zumba, and Shake Weight") and how much fun it was to shoot the film. The actor noted that he was "truly playing every day. I had a laser gun and a spaceship." But that playing came at a price, as Pratt admitted that he got so swept away shooting his fake gun that he couldn't help but making shooting noises with his mouth -- to the ire of the film crew.

Editors' Emmy Slugfest: Who'll win Best Drama Guest Actress?

20 July 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

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. Janney entered "Brave New World," Fonda tried her luck with "Red Team III" and Burton went with "A Door Marked Exit." Other nominees: 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 the Rose"). -Break- »

It’s A Wrap! ‘The Newsroom’ Third & Final Season Finishes Filming

19 July 2014 2:36 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’ve found that HBO’s The Newsroom has been a show the critics have wanted to berate but instead have found themselves taken in by the brilliance of the characters. Aaron Sorkin’s tremendous fictional ‘Television Newsroom’ spectacle has portrayed the day-to-day news in the way that most people would want to see it done and now returns this Fall for its final season.

There’s insurmountable coverage these days by supposed news journalism that usually ends up being nothing more than extended gossip, alongside unconsidered guess work. If you care about the world we live in, and keep up-to-date with your current affairs then The Newsroom brought back those hopes that such organisations once led with honesty and then -somehow – it might come back one day in Western society.

Of course, Sorkin had the advantage of reinventing old news coverage – by the series being set in the past »

Emmy Episode Analysis: Can Jane Fonda ('The Newsroom') win with only one scene?

18 July 2014 6:20 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Jane Fonda is back in the Best Drama Guest Actress Emmy race for the second year in a row thanks to her commanding role as Leona Lansing, owner of Acn on "The Newsroom." Last year she lost out to Carrie Preston ("The Good Wife"), but with Preston missing from this year's line-up, could this two-time Oscar winner prevail? Fonda's episode submission this year is "Red Team III" and if she wins, she'll finally have a bookend to the Movie/Mini Actress trophy she picked up thirty years ago for "The Dollmaker." -Break- Watch: Jane Fonda dishes 'The Newsroom' and the craziness of Oscars Synopsis: After several different sources confirm that the United States used Sarin gas, Acn goes ahead with the story. But soon after it airs, the network discovers the information to be completely false. A staff member is fired for editing an interview to make the account seem true, »

Jason Bateman, Tina Fey & Jane Fonda Are Among Family In This Is Where I Leave You Poster

10 July 2014 5:56 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

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 »

Is 'True Detective' worthy? 'Modern Family,' again? The critics react to 2014's Emmy nods

10 July 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

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 »
