Emmy Predictions 2017: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

7 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. »

James Corden Debuts ‘Donald: The Musical’ With ‘Matilda’ Composer On ‘The Late Late Show’ — Watch

21 March 2017 7:38 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Everyone knows James Corden loves a good Broadway musical, and we love him for it.

The “Late Late Show” host hosted some theater friends on his show last night to debut “Donald: The Musical,” a riff on a song from the Broadway production of “Matilda: The Musical,” which is based on the book by Roald Dahl with music by Australian musical comedian Tim Minchin.

Sporting an orange combover wig, Minchin played the Donald as a young boy dreaming about banning Muslims and “play[ing] with Putin’s balls.” Broadway’s Ben Platt (“Dear Evan Hansen”) played press secretary Sean Spicer, and Abigail Spencer (“Rectify”) donned a raggedy blonde wig as Kellyanne Conway. Taking one for the team, Corden played an adorable version of Steve Bannon (a truly alternate reality) in schoolboy shorts and knee socks. »

Ranking Amazon's 2017 Spring Pilots: The Good, the Bad and the Genuinely Wtf

20 March 2017 7:44 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Another season, another batch of Amazon pilots – it's the gift that keeps on giving. In the spirit of a true democracy (feel free to add your own cynical popular-vote joke here), the streaming service will offer up a number of first episodes for maybe-possibly future shows. The audience gets to decide what series should get full orders. You may get the next Transparent; you may get a burning pile of trash. Regardless, it's the viewer who gives these would-be TV classics the thumbs up, thumbs down, or sideways-thumbs-across-the-throat gesture. You »

‘Taken’ Review: Everything Wrong With the NBC Adaptation of Liam Neeson’s Movies — No One Even Gets Taken!

27 February 2017 7:59 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Disastrous film adaptations on broadcast television are nothing new. They’ve been popping up for decades, and — despite the many flops — network executives continue to apply cross promotional deal mechanics to generate revenue streams for synergy jargon. They love extending a brand’s lifespan via TV, and hey, sometimes it works. “Lethal Weapon,” one of the better examples of late, was just renewed for a second season and remains a treat for franchise fans and “Rectify” die-hards. (Clayne Crawford, keep up the good work.) It works, among other reasons, because the movies were made to fit the procedural formula. The show compliments what inspired it in spirit, character, and execution.

Taken,” however, represents what happens when everything goes wrong. What made the movie special is ignored again and again in the new series. Though the films arguably proved why the original premise wasn’t sustainable — after two movies, filmmakers stopped »

Neil Triffett on the set of 'Newton's Law'.

Emo the Musical director Neil Triffett spent the tail-end of 2016 as an attachment on TV series Newton.s Law, starring Claudia Karvan and produced by Miss Fisher.s Deb Cox and Fiona Eagger..

.He.s had a smorgasbord,. says Eagger, talking to If mid-shoot last year. .He sat in a lot of meetings. Because he's around for the whole shoot and he's been doing some behind the scenes for us, he's sort of become part of the furniture and as a consequence I think got great access..

‘When the Street Lights Go On’ Review: Eerie ’80s Murder-Mystery Blends ‘Stranger Things’ with ‘The Night Of’ — Sundance 2017

20 January 2017 3:01 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nostalgia may be based in the past, but it’s the future of entertainment. That’s how the media landscape has felt of late, with decades-old film franchises like “Star Wars” coming back to a very prosperous life, revivals like “Gilmore Girls” and “Will & Grace” dominating television, and everything from superhero movies to “Stranger Things” mining our childhoods for fresh material.

So as “When the Street Lights Go On” began and a familiar ’80s melody played over a montage of well-known events from 1983, wariness was the first feeling to set in: Here comes another attempt at manipulating our shared memories into “new” entertainment built on old ideas. But the deliberate and distinctive pacing combined with a uniquely mysterious presentation elevates the Paramount pilot above more overt nostalgia traps. And, more shocking still, its clever blend of on-the-nose songs from 1983 and lesser known numbers of the same year quickly and decisively help ground the pilot. »
