Other commitments kept Bates from appearing in season seven, “American Horror Story: Cult,” which aired last fall and focused on the 2016 election.

Hot Streak: Since 1992, at least one actor from an HBO film has been nominated in this category — films, not limited series.
Fun Fact: Benedict Cumberbatch is one nomination away from tying Laurence Olivier for the second-most nominations in the history of this category. Olivier, however, won four out of his six nominations, whereas the best Cumberbatch could hope for is half that.
Can Darren Criss follow in the footsteps of Courtney B. Vance and Cuba Gooding Jr. in “American Crime Story”? Can Benedict Cumberbatch get back in the race without “Sherlock”? Can Kyle MacLachlan earn his first Emmy nomination since “Twin Peaks” first went off the air in 1992?
There are a lot of questions surrounding the category for Best Lead Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie, but one thing already seems certain: HBO has at least one nomination locked up.
Williams won with an impressive 38% of the vote, with Joe Pesci (“Goodfellas”) coming in second at 23%. The only other performances to gain double-digit percentage points were Kevin Spacey (“The Usual Suspects”) with 11% and Martin Landau (“Ed Wood”) at 10%.

From there we had Cuba Gooding Jr. (“Jerry Maguire”) at 5%, Tommy Lee Jones (“The Fugitive”) at 4%, Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules”) at 2% and James Coburn (“Affliction”) at 1%. Jack Palance (“City Slickers”) was the only actor to not earn a single percentage point.

“It stars Forest Whitaker, he will play our lead character,” said Brancato. “It’s essentially the prequel to the movie American Gangster. It’s Harlem, the 1960s, a gangster named Bumpy Johnson was very close friends with Malcom X, so the show is about the collision of the criminal underworld and the civil rights movement. It’s an opportunity to examine some of the things that are going on racially right now, but through the prism of the past.”
Brancato, who left Narcos after its first season for the short-lived Of Kings and Prophets, went on to state that he has written the script,
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news on this sequel, which comes five months after original Coming to America writers Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield were brought on by Paramount to write the script. It isn't clear if Kenya Barris will be working from their draft, or if he will be doing a page-one rewrite and starting from scratch. Paramount hasn't set a release date or a production schedule yet, but with a new director and writer aboard, that may happen sooner rather than later.
Written and directed by Greg Pritikin, the Netflix original project is produced by Rob Paris of Paris Film Inc. Shooting began Monday in New Orleans.
The story centers on a talent manager and widower reuniting with a former client, who gave up a promising career as a stand-up comedian and instead settled down to have a family. Once on tour at classic stand-up venues across the U.S., the comedian gets a last taste of the life he could have had with a rollercoaster ride of two men rekindling friendships, careers, and ideas of the past. Chase will play the manager and Dreyfuss will portray the comedian.

Many Twitter uses noticed the mistake and have commented on the TV Academy’s correct RuPaul tweet. However, the Academy has yet to tweet a response. Variety has reached out to the Television Academy for comment, in addition to reps for RuPaul.
In a statement to Variety, Minor said, “We might look similar with our bald heads but I could never pass for Ms. Emmy. RuPaul killed that scene with Stephen Colbert. I was laughing my face off. Besides

The earliest known footage of a football game was a 1903 match-up between powerhouses Princeton and Yale, filmed by Thomas Edison. The earliest narrative films dealt with the college game, from Harold Lloyd’s “The Freshman” (1925) to the Marx Brothers in “Horse Feathers” (1932). An early example of a pro football movie is “The Cowboy Quarterback” (1939), which involves a scout for the “Chicago Packers” (gee, even in olden days screenwriters were lazy as shit).
