15 Emmy Fun Facts Leading Up to This Year’s Awards

16 September 2016 11:25 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Awards season trivia is a seemingly never-ending well of facts and figures that, practically speaking, rarely amount to more than an extra point or two at your local bar’s trivia night. Still, with TV’s biggest night of the year on the horizon, here is a list of 15 Emmy-related fun facts to impress your watch party, or at least hold you over until Sunday.

1. Netflix and Chill

Since becoming eligible to appear on the Emmy ballot in 2013, Netflix has gathered a total of 117 nominations overall. This year, Netflix reigns as the third-most nominated network — behind HBO (94) and FX (56) — with 54 nominations for 2016.

2. Glorious Cloris

Cloris Leachman reigns supreme with the most Emmy wins by a single actor, male or female, with a whopping eight victories. The TV legend has trophies from her appearances on “Malcolm in the Middle” and “Touched by an Angel,” among others.

3. Never Nominees

Popularity among audiences doesn’t necessarily guarantee Emmy success — stars »

Watch Michael Phelps Spoof Eminem on 'Lip Sync Battle'

12 September 2016 7:33 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The world knows Michael Phelps can swim, but can he lip sync? His skills were tested Sunday night when the Olympics record holder and other members of the U.S. team appeared on a live episode of Lip Sync Battle. Onstage, Phelps channeled his inner Slim Shady for an ad-hoc performance of Eminem's "Lose Yourself."

Phelps had his gold-medal winning game face on. He swayed to the opening of "Lose Yourself," parodying the beginning 8 Mile, which starred Eminem. The swimmer bungled the opening mirror scene and hid his mouth with »

Sia Premieres New Song “The Greatest” With Kendrick Lamar

6 September 2016 11:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sia is still capitalizing on the success of her single “Cheap Thrills,” but that isn’t stopping her from releasing an entirely new song seemingly out of nowhere. Similarly to how “Cheap Thrills” featured Sean Paul in a guest role, the new track, aptly-titled “The Greatest,” features a verse by rapper Kendrick Lamar.

“The Greatest,” while a brand new song, sounds like it could have very well been written during the sessions of Sia’s latest album, This Is Acting, but that isn’t a bad thing. The song itself continues the theme of This Is Acting, which is high intensity, high quality pop, and even if it doesn’t do anything inventive, it matches the consistency of her recent music.

For “The Greatest,” simplicity is its strongest suit: its repetitive chorus makes for great radio fodder with an electronic beat that has the track begging to be remixed, and »

Why Scream: The TV Series is Worth Your Time

22 August 2016 10:59 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

When it comes to genre television series as of late, there are a few shows that get more love than others. And since I finally caught up with the recent season two finale of Scream: The TV Series, I thought now would be the perfect time to tip my hat to this underrated series that not only wears its horror-loving heart so very clearly on its sleeve, but also keeps the mystery-fueled spirit of Wes Craven’s films alive and kicking, all while showcasing a lot of fantastic talent behind the camera as well.

And as much as I adore those first two factors, it’s that final part—the way Scream: The TV Series has utilized some incredible directorial talent—that has made me a staunch supporter of the show, as I’d argue that Scream may the best genre series that most fans have consistently overlooked ever since it debuted last summer. »

Carnage Park and Intruder Coming to Blu-ray from Scream Factory

10 August 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Scream Factory has added two IFC Midnight titles—Carnage Park and Intruder—to its November Blu-ray release slate to help horror fans shake off the post-Halloween blues.

From Scream Factory: “We are proud to announce that we have two new IFC Midnight films planned for release on Blu-ray & DVD this Nov!

Carnage Park – It’s 1978 and a bank robbery gone wrong forces two criminals to take a hostage – the young-but-resilient Vivian (The Last Exorcism’s Ashley Bell) – as they go on the run. But things go from bad to off-the-rails berserk when Vivian and her captors wind up in the crosshairs of a deranged ex-military sniper (Pat Healy, Cheap Thrills, Starry Eyes), who ensnares them in his deadly game of cat and mouse. Rising horror auteur Mickey Keating (Pod, Darling) directs this gritty, grisly homage to the glory days of grindhouse cinema.

Nerve review

3 August 2016 3:38 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Published Date  Wednesday, August 10, 2016 - 05:36

A real surprise, this. Arriving in the UK off the back of mixed reviews in the Us, I found Nerve to be an enthralling thriller, that gradually veers off its rails a little, yet still finds plenty to say in the midst of an entertaining 96 minutes.

It centres on Vee, played by Emma Roberts, a high school student who’s treated shoddily by her best friend Sydney (Emily Meade), and thus, in a quick moment, signs up to play Nerve. Nerve, we learn, is a social media-driven game of truth or dare, where you can either play or watch. Watching costs you 20 bucks a month, playing can earn you fame and big cash prizes. But, inevitably, the dares you have to undertake - chosen by the watchers, who search out everything they can find about you online - get gradually more and more dramatic. »

The MTV Video Music Awards Nominations Still Skimp On Electronic

27 July 2016 10:03 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s hard to imagine MTV holding the interest of anyone over the age of 16, but these days they don’t even come across as being in touch enough for the younger demographic. This year’s MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) nominees have been announced, and for the most part the network seems intent on shoving the same artists down our throats that it did five years ago.

You can count the DJ/producers nominated for VMAs in 2016 on one hand: Calvin Harris, 99 Souls, Afrojack, Alesso and The Chainsmokers. Even Skrillex and SeeB’s names were left curiously absent from the nominations for Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” and Mike Posner’s “I Took A Pill In Ibiza,” respectively, even though the latter song marks Posner’s first relevant single since 2011.

As its growth has run parallel to the proliferation of streaming services, electronic music simply isn’t a cash crop »
