President Trump Calls Emmy Award Ratings ‘the Worst Ever’ After Multiple Jokes Were Made About Him

19 September 2017 8:34 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

President Donald Trump is once again taking aim at the “rigged” Emmys — with the Leader of The Free World rejoicing over the award show’s low ratings.

Trump, 71, tweeted Tuesday night a few minutes before 11 p.m. while in New York City, writing, “I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night — the worst ever. Smartest people of them all are the “Deplorables.””

Sunday night’s Emmy Awards had ratings of 11.38 million viewers, which was almost even to last year’s all time audience low, according to Deadline.

Emmys 2017: Everything You Didn’t See on TV

18 September 2017 6:42 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sometimes, what makes Hollywood so confusing but also fascinating is how simultaneously surreal and mundane it can be, and how those two realities can coexist in such tight juxtaposition. Case in point: this year’s Emmy Awards, where one minute Sean Spicer turns up as a surprise guest on stage, eliciting a collective gasp in the audience, and the next, Keri Russell gallops into the bathroom, hiking up the hem of her dress so as not to get it dirty while waiting for an empty stall, and exclaims to nobody in particular, “Holy moly, this is nuts!”

What Russell was referring to is anybody’s guess — perhaps just the overwhelming stimuli present at any awards show — but there were a few not-televised, behind-the-scenes moments that might have been deemed “nuts” by any account.

When Spicer first popped onstage during host Stephen Colbert’s opening monologue, some Emmy guests rolled their eyes, a »

Elisabeth Moss and Jon Hamm Have a Giggly Mad Men Reunion Following Her Emmy Win

18 September 2017 4:47 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

What’s better than an Emmy Awards win? Celebrating that victory with an old friend, of course.

Elisabeth Moss — who took home her first Emmy on Sunday night for her role as Offred, a quiet but shrewd rebel against a horrifically patriarchal society in The Handmaid’s Tale — was the belle of the ball at the Hulu after-party. After posing for photos on the red carpet and hitting the dance floor to Nelly’s “Hot in Herre” with her TV husband O-t Fagbenle, the actress had a warm meet up with former Mad Men co-star Jon Hamm.

Emmys: ‘This Is Us’ Beat by ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ in Key Categories, but Scores Acting Wins

17 September 2017 8:38 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Broadcast’s big shut-out in the major dramatic Emmy races continues, as not even NBC’s breakout “This Is Us” could top critical darling “The Handmaid’s Tale” from streaming service Hulu to take the drama series trophy. However, “This Is Us” did come out on top in lead dramatic actor and guest actor categories.

Nominated for 10 awards overall, “This Is Us” was the first broadcast show to be up for the drama series statue since 2011 (when “The Good Wife” was on the ballot for CBS). Had it won, it would have been the first broadcast drama to win since 2006 (when Fox’s “24” beat “The Sopranos” and three other broadcast titles). Furthermore, it would have marked the first NBC drama to win since “The West Wing” won its fourth consecutive Emmy in 2003.

Unfortunately, “This Is Us” didn’t fare much better in most of the other seven categories in which it was nominated, either »

Elisabeth Moss Drops Two F-Bombs After Winning First Emmy

17 September 2017 8:19 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After seven nominations, “The Handmaid’s Tale” star Elisabeth Moss has won her first Emmy.

And in her excitement, it looks like she may have dropped a couple of expletives. While they were muted on TV, she dropped an f-bomb as she walked up to the stage to accept her award, and then called her mother a “f—ing bada–” at the end of her speech. “You are brave and strong and smart, and you have taught me that you can be kind and f–ing bada–,” she said about her mother.

Otherwise, an out-of-breath Moss thanked Hulu and MGM, in addition to Margaret Atwood, who wrote the book on which the series is based. “Margaret Atwood, oh my gosh, thank you for what you did in 1958 and thank you for what you continue to do for all of us.”

Moss was the front-runner in the category for her tour de force performance as the subjugated Offred »

Emmy Weekend: Saturday Brunch With ICM Partners, Tea With BAFTA

16 September 2017 5:16 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Saturday is a leisurely day of Emmy weekend activities this time around.

NBCUniversal and Showtime are taking a year off from hosting large-scale parties. That clears the path for the Evening Before fundraiser in Century City benefitting the Motion Picture and Television Fund, which is always the weekend’s glitziest draw.

After a jam-packed Friday schedule, Emmy revelers got to sleep in a bit. Brunch was provided by ICM Partners, and there was tea in the afternoon courtesy of BAFTA Los Angeles.

ICM Partners

By noon, the backyard of the Santa Monica home of ICM honcho Chris Silbermann and producer Julia Franz was overflowing with good food and good conversation. The casual setting of the brunch was, as ever, a nice respite for the ears and throat from louder evening affairs.

Among those enjoying the spread and the sunshine were “Better Call Saul’s” Vince Gilligan and Thomas Schnauz, ABC’s Channing Dungey, Patrick Moran »

Emmys 2017: The Locks, Spoilers, and Most Deserving Winners in the Wildest Gold Rush in Years

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

Drama Series

Will Win: “Stranger Things”

With seemingly never-ending buzz, a strong showing at the Creative Arts Emmys (including a critical win for casting), and a few big awards already under its belt, “Stranger Things” looks to be the consensus favorite in a category that could plausibly crown just about any nominee. The only strike against “Stranger Things”: genre. Is this eight-episode horror-thriller really what the Academy wants to elevate as the best of television?

Could Win: “The Handmaid’s Tale”

The prestige pick, the critics’ pick, and the most pertinent story for our times, Hulu’s breakthrough drama series is neck-and-neck with “Stranger Things” for the top spot. That Hulu has never had a contender at this level is a bit disconcerting, as are the unknown viewership numbers, but “Handmaid’s” has a head of steam going into Sunday. It could pull off the upset.

Should Win: “The Handmaid’s Tale”

Matthew Rhys Took Off His Shirt on the Red Carpet, Much to the Delight of Keri Russell

14 September 2017 10:59 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell hit the red carpet together for the premiere of Mother! in NYC on Wednesday night. Things started out totally normal - the couple flashed smiles while posing for photos with other guests - but then Matthew decided it was time for a costume change. The Americans actor then took off his shirt in order to swap with another guest, who was sporting a t-shirt in support of the People's Climate March in Washington DC in April. Matthew's antics seemed to simultaneously delight and embarrass Keri, who couldn't stop cracking up. We have to say, though . . . Matthew looks pretty damn good without a shirt on!

There Are Only a Few Precious Episodes of The Americans Left Before It Ends For Good

13 September 2017 11:06 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Americans is set to return for its sixth season in early 2018, but the premiere is bittersweet, as it also marks the show's final season. FX previously announced that season six would consist of 10 episodes instead of the usual 13, but that doesn't mean it won't be epic. "There are a lot of pieces hanging out there, a lot of stories, a lot of threads of who these people are and how their lives are going to end up, and their emotional development," showrunner Joe Weisberg revealed during the Atx TV Festival back in June. "The final season is only 10 episodes. It'll be action packed and emotion packed." Showrunner Joel Fields also said that they'd had to write more because the show is coming to an end. "Usually we break the entire arc of next season at the end of the prior season and we usually outline the first seven episodes. »

Film Review: Dylan O’Brien in ‘American Assassin’

12 September 2017 11:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

American Assassin,” directed by Michael Cuesta, aims to be the first in a new action franchise inspired by author Vince Flynn’s best-selling pulp about hot-headed, CIA-adjacent brute Mitch Rapp, the kind of terrorist-killing tough guy whose bleeds koans like, “If you’re not busy living, you’re dying.” The 16-installment book series is a smart choice to adapt. It’s “Jack Reacher” meets “Lone Survivor,” and so apolitical that both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush were fans.

Rapp sneers at everyone: bureaucrats, all religions, the French. This launchpad has big ambitions and a whirlwind script where bullets zing in Malta, Ibiza, Istanbul, Tripoli, Romania, Roanoke and Rome. Yet “American Assassin” is so close-mouthed and macho that it blends in with Bourne, Bond and “Taken’s” Brian Mills. Rapp can blast his way through Turkey — but this sullen, swollen hero can’t elbow those box office heavyweights to make room.
