Emmy Predictions 2017: Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series

4 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Year’s Winner: Ben Mendelsohn, “Bloodline

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: While a number of actors have won this category twice, we haven’t seen a repeat victor since Ray Walston won for “Picket Fences” in 1995 and 1996. That streak will continue at least one more year, given last year’s winner is ineligible in 2017.

Fun Fact: “The West Wing” won this category four times with four different actors: Richard Schiff (2000), Bradley Whitford (2001), John Spencer (2002), and Alan Alda (2006).

With “Game of Thrones” ineligible, this field is wide open. Only three of last year’s six nominees are eligible to earn another nomination in 2017 — Jonathan Banks (“Better Call Saul”), Michael Kelly (“House of Cards”), and Jon Voight (“Ray Donovan”) — meaning even if all three get back in, we’re going to see some new blood this year…

…starting with John Lithgow. The beloved Emmys presence (a five-time winner and 11-time nominee »

Emmy Predictions 2017: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

4 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Year’s Winner: Dame Maggie Smith, “Downton Abbey

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: After nabbing one nomination in 2013 (Emilia Clarke) and 2014 (Lena Headey), “Game of Thrones” expanded in subsequent years to two nominations in 2015 and three in 2016 (when Maisie Williams snagged her first nod).

Fun Fact: Only two actresses have won this category more than twice: Ellen Corby for “The Waltons” (three times) and Nancy Marchand for “Lou Grant” (four times).

With “Game of Thrones” out of contention and the great Dame Maggie Smith’s “Downton Abbey” over, only two of last year’s nominees are eligible again in 2017: Maura Tierney in “The Affair” and Constance Zimmer in “UnREAL.” Both are coming off their first Emmy nominations, but both of their TV shows lost a bit of buzz in their follow-up seasons. Neither are guarantees (though certainly deserving).

So, who’s going to fill all these slots? There’s no shortage of options. »

Exclusive: Paul Feig Mentors Female Filmmakers at 'Dinner With Dames' Event

21 March 2017 11:26 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Dapper as usual in a tartan-print suit, Paul Feig entered the Scottish-themed Tam O’Shanter’s in Hollywood's Los Feliz neighborhood Tuesday evening to a dim room full of bright women.

The Ghostbusters director volunteered his Tuesday night to mentor eight women in the film industry, each hailing from a different discipline. The woman are members of the non-profit Cinefemme – a group of key creatives that work to connect female filmmakers and foster opportunities to greenlight their films.

The Dinner with Dames event is one such opportunity. Writer/director and program director Jenna Payne started the intimate gatherings last September and has been able to snag mentors like Simon Barrett (The Guest, You're Next), Zoe Bell (Camino, The Hateful Eight), Dean Cundey (Jurassic Park, Back to the Future), Vicky Jenson (Shrek, Shark Tale), Joseph Weisberg (The Americans) and Byron Willinger (The Commuter).

Iron Fist Season 1 Episode 1 Review – ‘Snow Gives Way’

17 March 2017 2:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Shaun Munro reviews the first episode of Iron Fist

Iron Fist arrives on Netflix today amid the bad-pr double-whammy of whitewashing accusations and a fleet of negative early reviews, but for those prepared to keep an open-mind, can the streaming giant’s fourth Marvel show still deliver the goods?

Well, it seems to get one thing right from the up; the first two episodes are helmed by legendary film noir director John Dahl (Red Rock West, The Last Seduction), who in recent years has worked on a litany of acclaimed TV shows such as Dexter, Breaking Bad, Homeland, Hannibal, The Americans and House of Cards, to name just a few.

Sadly, however, this season primer isn’t the most invigorating introduction to Danny Rand (Finn Jones), who returns to New York City after being presumed dead in a plane crash with his parents, to find the family business now controlled »

16 March 2017 11:09 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Although the ratings dropped significantly in seasons two, three, and four, don't worry about this spy saga being cancelled too soon. FX renewed The Americans TV show not just for season five, but also for a sixth and final season, back in May of 2016. Will the numbers continue to fall in season five, or will some of the audience return? Stay tuned.A 1980s Kgb espionage drama on the FX cable channel, The Americans stars Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Holly Taylor, Keidrich Sellati, Noah Emmerich, Lev Gorn, Costa Ronin, and Brandon J.

Colony Season 2 Episode 10 Review: The Garden of Beasts

16 March 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

There were some tense moments on Colony Season 2 Episode 10, but for the most part, it was easy to determine their outcome.

Even so, we're dealing with situations that are building to what is sure to be a mind-blowing finale, and I'm getting antsy for renewal news.

By the end of "The Garden of Beasts" I could only imagine Maddie wondering if she chose the right side of her family for security, as well as the "where did we go wrong" thoughts running through Will and Katie's minds in regard to Bram.

Maddie's life has taken quite the dire turn.

Considering the way she took over the life her former boss and Nolan's wife once had, Maddie, of all people, should know how easy it is to lose everything in a New York Minute.

Even after watching herself float in whatever that magical Greatest Day box reveals to those who pluck it up off the table, »

Keri Russell revealed how boyfriend Matthew Rhys told her about his Nsfw scene with Lena Dunham on this season of Girls.

In the stand-alone episode, author Chuck Palmer (Rhys) exposes himself to Hannah Horvath (Dunham) while the two are lying awkwardly on his bed. This comes after they have a spirited discussion about the women who have spoken out claiming that Chuck had sexually assaulted them.

While on Thursday's Late Night With Seth Meyers, Russell admitted that she had a lot of questions about Rhys' guest appearance on the HBO show.

‘This Is Us’ Finale: Why It’s Wrong to Obsess Over Jack’s Death, But Right to Be Pissed After That Ending

15 March 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Viewers have been clamoring for two things from “This Is Us” all season: more Jack and fewer twists.

Ok, to be fair, the latter demand stems mostly from critics who want to see the show develop more naturally, embrace its roots as a family drama and stop worrying about shocking audiences each week. But everybody wants more Jack. Perhaps it’s because he’s just such a damn likable dad (when he’s not drinking) or it’s due to a dearth of traditional heroes on TV, but the main complaints about Milo Ventimiglia is that he’s too perfect.

When the Season 1 finale gave everyone exactly what they wanted — all Jack, all the time, and no major surprises other than Randall adopting a baby — people should have been dancing in the streets, unified by the power of a cultural touchstone delivering the goods right before wrapping up a beloved first year. »

8 March 2017 6:18 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The return of The Americans last night on FX for its Season 5 debut has brought a chill to the Cold War set spy family drama. Now on a Tuesday for the first time at 10 Pm, the Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields Ep’d show hit a season debut low with 930,000 total viewers and a 0.2 rating among adults 18-49.

Matthew Rhys Reveals He’s the Panicky Parent Compared to Partner Keri Russell

8 March 2017 12:35 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When it comes to their new addition Sam, Keri Russell is as cool as a cucumber – but dad Matthew Rhys? Not so much.

The actor opened up about being a first-time parent during an appearance on Live! with Kelly on Monday, revealing that he’s not nearly as seasoned as his partner, who has two older children from a previous relationship (son River, 9, and daughter Willa, 5).

“I’m the one going, ‘What about…’ and she goes, ‘Shut up it’s fine,” Rhys, 42, said.

The Americans Season 5 Episode 1 Review: Amber Waves

7 March 2017 10:09 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Somehow, Philip and Elizabeth Jennings can make digging a hole scintillating.

The action on The Americans Season 5 Episode 1 was kept to a minimum as we caught up with the Jennings family, Oleg and Stan Beeman.

The Jennings are still in the Us, although not happy about it. Paige and Henry are still hanging out at Stan's house and with Matthew Beeman. Oleg? He's returned to the Motherland.

 

The cold open with a new Russian immigrant to the Us and another student attempting to befriend him with his own tales of coming to the Us only came into focus when the friendly young man arrived home to his parents: Philip and Elizabeth.

It was disorienting coming into the middle of an undercover assignment like that, and it was fantastic.

It set the tone for the entire hour. We're back, but there is little by way of explanation as to what has happened or why. »

‘The Americans': Oleg’s New Kgb Boss Perfectly Sums Up America’s Problems in 2017 (Commentary)

7 March 2017 8:13 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

(Some spoilers ahead for the season 5 premiere of the FX original series “The Americans.”) The premiere of “The Americans” Season 5 has seen some shakeups. For one thing, Kgb operative and American technology specialist Oleg Burov (Costa Ronin) has left the Us and his grudgingly respectful relationship with FBI counterpart Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich). Oleg’s back in Russia, working some whole other aspect of Russian intelligence. Up to Season 5, Oleg was one of the Kgb resident spies in the Russian embassy, known to the local spy folks as the Rezidentura. Heading home to stay with his mother after the »

‘The Americans’ Season 5 Premiere: EPs Preview What’s Ahead and Why We’ll Never See Putin

7 March 2017 8:11 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s the best of times and the worst of times for FX’s “The Americans.” The critically acclaimed drama launched Season 5 (its penultimate run in a now six-season plan) Tuesday night and returns to the air riding high on finally breaking through at the Emmys.

And yet a funny thing happened between seasons. The election of Donald Trump ushered in a seemingly endless string of headlines about Russia and revived a certain “us vs. them” mindset most Americans put aside after the Cold War ended. What exactly does that mean for a show set at the ’80s height of the U.S./Soviet conflict?

As showrunners Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields tell Variety, nothing has changed when it comes to how they make the show. But it’s very possible that everything — or at least something — has changed in the way viewers will receive it. We’ll find out as the season plays out over the »

The Americans Bosses Dig Into That Deadly Season 5 Premiere

7 March 2017 8:10 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Warning: The following contains spoilers for Tuesday’s Season 5 premiere of The Americans.

Can you dig it, The Americans fans?

FX’s riveting spy drama capped its Season 5 premiere with an unbearably tense sequence: Over twelve virtually silent minutes, Philip, Elizabeth and friends snuck onto a U.S. military facility to dig up the infected body of William, the bio-weapons expert who killed himself last season with a lethal virus. They did succeed in slicing off a flap of skin from William’s corpse… but Kgb informant Hans stumbled and fell onto the body, exposing himself to the virus. Elizabeth »
