Here's How You Can Have a Drink With George Clooney

Some of the ice-cold drinks at a Chicago cocktail bar just got hotter...and that's a good thing. The venue, The Bassment, is offering a drink called The Clooney, named after George Clooney. The concoction contains Casamigos tequila, the brand he co-founded and sold for $1 billion in 2017, as well as a large ice cube with a laminated piece of paper bearing the actor's face frozen inside. The photo comes from an appearance he made at the premiere of The Descendants in Beverly Hills in 2011. "We use the Casamigos Tequila and we thought, let's have a lot of fun and laminate these ice cubes and have George Clooney who created the tequila featured on them," a rep...

Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie

Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie
Last Year’s Winner: Jeff Daniels, “Godless

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: In the history of the Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series and TV Movie race, there are 37 actors with more than one nomination apiece, and only one who’s won more than once: Beau Bridges won in 1997 for “The Second Civil War” and in 1993 for “The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom.”

Fun Fact: Maybe more is better? As limited series have been on the rise across television, this category has seen more winners from miniseries than TV Movies by a wide margin: Only one supporting actor this decade has won while representing a standalone movie — David Strathairn for HBO’s “Temple Grandin” — whereas five won for TV Movies in the decade prior. (More if you count two-part miniseries as movies.)

Notable Ineligible Series: Alexander Skarsgård, “Big Little Lies”; anyone from “American Crime Story

George Clooney and John Prendergast: Sudan Needs More Than Words

In a new op-ed in the Washington Post, The Sentry’s Co-Founders George Clooney and John Prendergast write: “Sudan’s courageous protesters need more than words. They need strong international action for real change to have a chance.”

Focusing on the critical role that the international community can play in support of the protesters, they add: “As a result of the documented corruption and lack of adequate anti-money-laundering controls recently highlighted by the Sentry, regime elites are likely expanding their efforts to hide their illicitly obtained wealth outside Sudan. Pursuing this capital flight would provide real support to Sudanese protesters. The U.S. Treasury Department and other regulators around the globe should issue public advisories to their financial and real estate sectors warning of the risk of asset flight from Sudanese ‘politically exposed persons’ to their jurisdictions. And the United States should use Global Magnitsky Act sanctions against officials responsible for mass corruption and rights abuses.

How Broadcast Networks Fight Streamers to Cast Top Stars in Their Pilots
In a matter of weeks, the broadcast networks will go through the annual process of ordering pilots to series for the fall season.

The casts of this year’s pilot crop feature many broadcast mainstays and strong performers, but also illustrate that cable networks and streaming platforms are now the go-to destination for marquee stars looking to make a splash in TV.

That’s not to say that there are no big names working on broadcast pilots this year. Some notable stars in the arena this year include Heather Graham, Edie Falco, Michael Sheen and Kal Penn.

According to David Stapf, president of CBS Television Studios, getting big stars for broadcast pilots is no harder than it has been.

“I don’t know that it’s any more difficult if you have good material,” Stapf told Variety. “Case in point: We had a great script from Paul Attanasio about the

Doug and Carol forever! George Clooney and Julianna Margulies could have an ‘ER’ reunion at the Emmys

Doug and Carol forever! George Clooney and Julianna Margulies could have an ‘ER’ reunion at the Emmys
It’s been 10 years since “ER” went off the air — April 2 was the 10th anniversary of its series finale — but we might get a mini reunion at the Emmys from one of the show’s and TV’s all-time couples: Doug Ross and Carol Hathaway. You might know them better as George Clooney and Julianna Margulies.

Both have limited series in contention this year. Clooney directed, produced and stars in Hulu’s adaptation of “Catch-22,” which drops Friday, May 17. Originally set to play Col. Cathcart, Clooney demoted himself to the smaller role of Scheisskopf to accommodate his directing duties (Kyle Chandler replaced him as Cathcart). This is Clooney’s first series regular role since he left “ER” in 1999. Clooney will be competing in the supporting actor race, where he’s second in our early odds, and he could also net directing and producing nominations. A two-time Best Drama Actor nominee

George Clooney Speaks Up Following Recent Events In Sudan

After months of protests in Sudan, President Omar al-Bashir has been ousted by the country’s military.

George Clooney and John Prendergast, Co-Founders of The Sentry, said: “The people of Sudan have been waiting for this day for a long time, but it is only a tentative first step towards real change. The general who has taken over in this palace coup, Awad Ibn Ouf, has been sanctioned by the United States for orchestrating war crimes in Darfur, just as the just-deposed Omar al-Bashir has been. Bashir is also wanted for genocide and war crimes perpetrated in Darfur, and should be extradited and tried in The Hague for those crimes. However, removing the leader of a violent, corrupt system without dismantling that system is inadequate. The next steps are crucial. The international community must provide all possible support to ensure that the transition is a negotiated and inclusive one, and

Kate McKinnon Cast as Elizabeth Holmes in Hulu Limited Series ‘The Dropout’

“The Dropout,” adapted from the ABC News podcast of the same name, will star the current “Saturday Night Live” cast member as the founder of the ill-fated blood home testing kit company, which went from being valued at billions of dollars to the center of one of the biggest financial scams in American history.
