‘The Americans’ could follow its TCA Awards windfall with Emmys for Best Drama Series, Best Actor and Best Actress

‘The Americans’ could follow its TCA Awards windfall with Emmys for Best Drama Series, Best Actor and Best Actress
The Americans” was a critics’ darling throughout its six-year run, but the Television Critics Association lavished it with more nominations this year than it has since the show’s very first season. The FX espionage drama about undercover Kgb spies is up for four TCA Awards, including its fourth bid for Program of the Year. That windfall could translate to Emmy wins for Best Drama Series, Best Drama Actor (Matthew Rhys) and Best Drama Actress (Keri Russell).

It took a while for “The Americans” to get on the Emmy radar. It received just five nominations over the course of its first three seasons combined. But season four was a breakthrough for the series in 2016, earning a nom for Best Drama Series for the first time, in addition to overdue bids for lead actors Rhys and Russell. The show dropped out of the Drama Series race in 2017, but Rhys and Russell stayed in.

On the Set of 'The Americans' as Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys Bid Farewell to Series

FX’s Cold War drama The Americans, which tells the story of Russian spies Philip and Elizabeth Jennings (Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell) and their FBI agent neighbor Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich), for six seasons mined the tension in seemingly mundane interactions. So it’s fitting that on a frigid Jan. 18 on the White Plains, New York, street that stands in for the show’s Falls Church, Virginia, neighborhood, the scenes being filmed consist of everyday conversations packed with meaning.

On the back porch of one of several look-alike homes used as the exterior of the Jennings’ house, Elizabeth is ...

‘The Americans’ Finale: Cast and Creators Dig Deep for New Answers to the Series’ Wild Endings

‘The Americans’ Finale: Cast and Creators Dig Deep for New Answers to the Series’ Wild Endings
[Editor’s Note: The following article contains spoilers for “The Americans” series finale, “Start.”]

The ending to “The Americans” is meant to invite questions; more to the point, it’s meant to invite the audience to provide answers themselves. The open-ended conclusion to so many stories in FX’s top-tier drama series are deliberate and fitting, as creator Joe Weisberg and co-showrunner Joel Fields purposefully crafted the series finale to provide emotional closure instead of hard-and-fast answers.

But that’s not going to stop people from asking.

At the Atx Festival Sunday afternoon, the cast and creators gathered for a panel discussion about the finale. Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Noah Emmerich, Holly Taylor, Keidrich Sellati, Brandon J. Dirden, director and executive producer Chris Long, as well as the two men known around set as the J’s, sat down and dug into the nitty gritty details of that pivotal last hour.

Emmys: Supporting Actor Categories Are Ensembles of Riches (Column)

Emmys: Supporting Actor Categories Are Ensembles of Riches (Column)
It’s the kind of abstract problem a high-strung trader at Axe Capital might bring to Maggie Siff’s all-knowing performance coach Wendy Rhoades on Showtime’s “Billions”: How do you define a supporting role at a time when shows, particularly high-end dramas, feature increasingly large ensemble casts? Serialized storylines often bounce the focus around among core characters to keep the pot boiling.

The “Billions” season three episode “Not You, Mr. Dake” is a good example. It’s hard to argue that Siff’s character is not the lead in this episode: Wendy instigates a morally bankrupt scheme involving her husband,

The Renee Question: ‘The Americans’ Cast Shares Their Thoughts on the Finale Cliffhanger

The Renee Question: ‘The Americans’ Cast Shares Their Thoughts on the Finale Cliffhanger
[Editor’s Note: The following article contains spoilers for “The Americans” series finale.]

The Americans” finale is chock full of ambiguity. There’s the question of what happens to the Jennings once the Ussr dissolves. There’s the question of why Stan (Noah Emmerich) lets his neighbors walk away. There’s a bunch of questions surrounding Paige (Holly Taylor), including why she gets off the train and what she does after pounding that vodka.

But one question reigns supreme: Is Renee (Laurie Holden) a Russian spy or just a good wife who’s interested in being closer to her husband?

Last week, before a screening of the series finale held for Emmys voters, IndieWire caught up to the cast to ask them that very question, and during the panel, they actually asked the crowd the same question. Creator Joe Weisberg estimated about “80 percent” of the crowd believed she was a spy, and most of the cast agrees. A few are certain of it.

4 reasons Noah Emmerich (‘The Americans’) can finally sneak into the Emmy race

4 reasons Noah Emmerich (‘The Americans’) can finally sneak into the Emmy race
Like the show itself, “The Americans” has had a slow burn at the Emmys (if your name isn’t Margo Martindale). The ‘80s-set espionage drama, which ended its six-season run on Wednesday, was a critical darling, but struggled to crack the major categories until 2016, when it got nominations for drama series and for its leads Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys. Their series-long co-star Noah Emmerich has yet to crack the supporting race, but his last chance is his best chance. Here’s why (spoilers if you haven’t watched “The Americans”’ series finale):
