Rachel Brosnahan will attempt to do something that hasn’t been done in 10 years at the Golden Globes

Rachel Brosnahan will attempt to do something that hasn’t been done in 10 years at the Golden Globes
Can Rachel Brosnahan end a decade-long drought at the Golden Globes? No one has won back-to-back Best TV Comedy/Actress Golden Globes in 10 years, but the “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” star is favored to repeat, per our combined odds.

Tina Fey (“30 Rock”) was the most recent champ to go back-to-back. Since then, it’s been one-hit wonders: Toni Collette (“United States of Tara”), Laura Linney (“The Big C”), Laura Dern (“Enlightened”), Lena Dunham (“Girls”), Amy Poehler (“Parks and Recreation”), Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), Rachel Bloom (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”), Tracee Ellis Ross (“Black-ish”) and Brosnahan. This is not surprising at all since the Hollywood Foreign Press Association loves fresh blood and has no problem dropping “old news.”

Only nine actresses have won this category more than once, with seven of

‘Beacon 23’ TV Series Adaptation From Zak Penn Nears Green Light At Spectrum

  • Deadline
Beacon 23, Hugh Howey’s bestselling sci-fi novel, is heading to the small screen. I hear the project, from writer Zak Penn, is getting a series order for a run on Charter Communications’ Spectrum cable systems. The series will be produced by independent studio Platform One Media and Spectrum Originals.

Set in the 23rd Century, a series of beacons help passing ships avoid disaster. The TV adaptation focuses on a man who thinks he will find peace manning one of these remote “lighthouses in space”, but he quickly discovers that he can’t outrun his past.

Beacon 23 would mark the second high-profile series order for Spectrum, joining the Bad Boys offshoot L.A.’s Finest starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba. This is part of Charter Communications’s strategy to introduce high-end original content on its Spectrum cable systems. The company’s original efforts are

Will Bill Hader ride Emmy upset for ‘Barry’ to Golden Globes win?

Will Bill Hader ride Emmy upset for ‘Barry’ to Golden Globes win?
At this year’s Emmys Bill Hader pulled off a big upset when he won Best Comedy Actor for the first season of “Barry” over reigning champ Donald Glover (“Atlanta”). Hader heads into the Golden Globes as the clear frontrunner. He is hoping to follow in the footsteps of five of last year’s Globe winners — Sterling K. Brown (‘This Is Us’), Elizabeth Moss (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’), Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern (all ‘Big Little Lies”) — who all came to the ceremony with Emmys already on their mantles.

While the other Gold Derby editors and all but a handful of the Emmy experts were predicting Glover to prevail again, I’ve known that Hader would win TV’s top honor since March 28. That was three days after “Barry” began and I gave three reasons why Hader would be a hit with academy voters: he had a meaty

Report claims Star Wars: The Last Jedi criticism was amplified by Russian bots and trolls

Not content with meddling in the U.S. Presidential Election, it seems that Russia and its cyber agents have also recently turned their attention to… the Star Wars saga?!

Well, that’s what a new report from Morten Bay of The University of Southern California claims, with Bay publishing a paper which alleges that half of the online criticism aimed at Rian Johnson over Star Wars: The Last Jedi was “political trolling, some of it likely from Russia.”

The report claims that much of the Episode VII abuse stemmed from “bots, trolls/sock puppets or political activists supporting extreme right-wing causes and the discrimination of gender, race or sexuality.”

Apparently the purpose of all this was to increase media coverage of the conflict within the fan community, “adding to and further propagating a narrative of widespread discord and dysfunction in American society [and] persuading voters of this narrative remains a strategic goal for the U.

Domhnall Gleeson slams toxic Star Wars fans for harassment of Kelly Marie Tran

During an interview with HeyUGuys to promote the release of his new movie The Little Stranger, actor Domhnall Gleeson has spoken out in defence of his Star Wars: The Last Jedi co-star Kelly Marie Tran, slamming those toxic fans who were responsible for harassing and abusing the actress and leading to her exit from social media.

“People having an opinion about the film is absolutely fine,” said Gleeson, who will reunite with Tran on next year’s Star Wars: Episode IX. “You pay your money, and you’re allowed to have an opinion. The stuff with Kelly was bullshit. That’s a different thing altogether, so those people are just morons. Those people are just assholes. It’s a different level of stuff.

Regina King's Acceptance Speech at the Emmys Was So Pure, We're Still Smiling
Regina King, donning a stunning neon green dress, managed to steal our hearts on Monday night. At the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards show, King took the stage to accept the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a limited series or movie for her heartbreaking role in the Netflix crime drama Seven Seconds. She beat out other worthy actresses for the trophy, including Jessica Biel, Laura Dern, and Sarah Paulson.

King's response to her win was pure shock (and pure joy!), and although she claimed that she didn't have a speech prepared, her stage presence and passionate words made for one of the night's most memorable onstage moments. "Really?" she said in disbelief while holding her new Emmy. "Say 'word.' Oh my God."

Emmys put away the rubber stamp in 2018: Voters said no to reruns as defending champs went down
A common refrain here at Gold Derby is that Emmys love reruns. That’s how you get shows like “Modern Family” and “Mad Men” and actors like Jim Parsons (“The Big Bang Theory”) and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep”) that win over and over (and over and over) again. But in 2018 the television academy bucked that trend by mostly rejecting repeat winners in favor of first-time champs. Is this the end of Emmy rubber-stamping?

SEEEmmy winners 2018: Full list of winners and nominees at the 70th Emmy Awards

In 2015 the television academy expanded voting to the entire television academy as opposed to the small, restricted judging panels that used to pick the winners. Then in 2016 the academy did away with preferential ballots in favor of a plurality vote: instead of ranking the nominees, now voters just pick one winner from the list of nominees. Those changes meant that episode submissions were no

TV’s Past And Future Collide As Betty White, The Fonz, ‘SNL’, Marriage And Streaming Highlight A Weird Emmy Night

  • Deadline
Netflix’s stock is up 2% this morning. Emmy’s ratings numbers are down 11%. The long, winding TV awards season campaign that started as far back as January finally has come to an end just as the long-winding Oscar season gets going in stride.

But what can you say about a 70th Emmy year in which more money was spent, more billboards bought, more Q&As and parties held, yet the big memorable takeaway after all was said and done, and all the envelopes opened, was an “Oscars” Emmy-winning director’s marriage proposal during his acceptance speech, the Fonz finally getting his prize after 43 years, and the appearance of 96-year-old Betty White who also was around for that first broadcast in 1949. That is what it all came down to, romance and nostalgia. Oh, and yes, an industry that is now just dreaming of streaming.
