Director David Petrarca returned to his theatrical roots for DirecTV’s anthology drama, “Full Circle,” from multi-hyphenate Neil Labute. “I’ve been doing a lot of big, big shows, but I love the exercise of getting two or three good actors in a room together and thinking about the acting,” Petrarca, whose directing credits include “Big Love,” “True Blood,” “Political Animals” and “Dawson’s Creek,” told TheWrap. “I love when things are really stripped down and really about the acting and the text,” he continued. “It is a nice diversion to get away from spectacle, size and scope. I love that stuff, »

It is just as fun and hollerable as anything you’ve seen on Syfy, and it has a very cool looking monster as a bonus.

That's a wrap for the 2013 Emmys! This year's show had a healthy mix of expected winners like Julia Louis-Dreyfus for Veep and Modern Family for outstanding comedy series, but there were also plenty of surprises as well. Bobby Cannavale took home the Emmy for supporting actor in a drama series for his work on Boardwalk Empire, and Merritt Wever was so astounded by her win for supporting actress in a comedy that she was rendered speechless. The biggest winner of the night, though, was the cast and crew of Breaking Bad, who took home the trophy for outstanding drama series for the first time.

Well, that was… oddly somber!
Though the 2013 Emmy Awards gave us more than a few unexpected triumphs, the Twitter consensus is correct: The ceremony felt sad, and that’s because the otherwise rapid-fire award handout was stopped in its tracks every 15 minutes by a new “In Memoriam” tribute.
Edie Falco toasted James Gandolfini and cried. Jane Lynch (looking fabulous) toasted Cory Monteith and teared up. Robin Williams trembled through a Jonathan Winters memorial. Michael J. Fox told us about the Family Ties creator who changed his life. Rob Reiner lamented Jean Stapleton‘s death by comparing it to her character Edith Bunker‘s demise in the early ’80s. That was like a double death. Then we had a full-length “In Memoriam” reel on top of it all where we had to think about Larry Hagman‘s late studliness too. Oh, mortality! Because we could not stop for Death, He kindly »

The 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, aired on Sunday evening and now we have the list of winners (in red) and nominees from the event. Check it out below and let us know if you agree with the results. "Breaking Bad" took home the award in the best drama series, beating such shows as "Downton Abbey," "Game of Thrones," "Homeland," House of Cards" and "Mad Men." But the biggest surprise of the evening was that "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston didn't win for best actor in a drama series. That award went to Jeff Daniels for "The Newsroom." Claire Danes won for best actress in a drama series for her work on "Homeland." The actress won the same award last year. And this year marks the first time a show not airing on television has received nominations. That show is "House of Cards," which is exclusive to Netflix. »
Gold Derby polled 18 experts to predict this year's Primetime Emmy Awards, and despite a slew of upsets in several top races, two finished ahead of all others with a score of 47%: Melanie McFarland (IMDb) and Aj Hammer (Hln Showbiz Tonight). Hammer was one of the few to predict the surprise victories by "Undercover Boss" as Best Reality Series and Ellen Burstyn ("Political Animals") as Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actress. He also predicted the top Emmy wins for "Breaking Bad," "Modern Family," and "Behind the Candelabra." McFarland also predicted Burstyn's win, as well as the top program awards for "Breaking," "Modern," and "Candelabra," but she also went out on a limb for "The Colbert Report," which shocked by winning Best Variety Series against 10-time winner "The Daily Show." Following close behind with 44% were  »
Behind the Candelabra scored a hat-trick at the 65th annual Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles last night [Sept 22].
The biopic of Liberace picked up the award for Directing, Miniseries or Movie for Steven Soderbergh; Actor, Miniseries or Movie for Michael Douglas’ portrayal of the flamboyant entertainer; and best Miniseries or Movie.
Accepting the award, Douglas said of Damon: “You’re magnificent. The only reason I’m standing here is because of you.”

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul were upset in their respective acting categories, but Breaking Bad won the night’s top prize, taking home its first Emmy for Best Drama. It was an unpredictable night in several major categories: In addition to The Newsroom’s Jeff Daniels taking home the trophy for Best Actor in a Drama and Boardwalk Empire’s Bobby Cannavale winning for Supporting Actor, Veep’s Tony Hale and Nurse Jackie’s Merritt Wever were surprise winners — Wever was so shocked that she practically ran off the stage without delivering an acceptance speech.
Not every category yielded a stunner, »
