‘Ted Lasso’ just did something only ‘Modern Family’ has managed to do at Emmys

‘Ted Lasso’ just did something only ‘Modern Family’ has managed to do at Emmys
Gold Derby predicted that three of “Ted Lasso’s” supporting actors would earn Emmy nominations on July 13, but the voters surprised us by actually nominating four. Brett Goldstein, Brendan Hunt and Nick Mohammed numbered among our Top 6 in our combined predictions, while Jeremy Swift rounded out our Top 10; the category had eight nominees. By claiming four spots on the Best Comedy Supporting Actor lineup, the Apple TV Plus series has now done something only “Modern Family” has managed to do at the Emmys.

At the height of the ABC family sitcom’s domination of the Emmy Awards in 2011 and 2012, it earned four separate nominations in this race for Ty Burrell, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Ed O’Neill. Burrell beat out his co-nominees in 2011 (his first of two trophies) while Stonestreet claimed the prize in 2012 (his second

‘Monsters at Work’: Showrunner Bobs Gannaway and Star Ben Feldman on Reviving Pixar’s Hit Franchise for Disney Plus

‘Monsters at Work’: Showrunner Bobs Gannaway and Star Ben Feldman on Reviving Pixar’s Hit Franchise for Disney Plus
Two decades after the wonderfully zippy, goofy “Monsters, Inc.” was released in theaters, Pixar is bringing back Mike Wazowski and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan for another adventure. The upcoming television series “Monsters at Work,” which premieres July 7 on Disney Plus, picks up where “Monsters, Inc.” left off, with CEO Henry J. Waternoose headed for the slammer, children deemed non-toxic, and laugh energy replacing the suddenly outmoded scream energy.

In reviving the beloved characters, voiced by Billy Crystal and John Goodman, showrunner Bobs Gannaway looked to expand the existing world with a new set of characters, among them Tylor Tuskmon (Ben Feldman), Val Little (Mindy Kaling) and Fritz (Henry Winkler). Tylor joins the company right out of Monsters University expecting to start work as a scarer, only to find out that the legendary energy company is scrambling to re-strategize. He’s instead assigned to Mift, the Monsters Inc. Facilities Team, an

Monsters at Work Trailer Puts Mike and Sully Back on the Clock This July

Monsters at Work Trailer Puts Mike and Sully Back on the Clock This July
It's almost time to catch up with Sully and Mike, the not so scary monsters that we first met way back in 2001's Monsters Inc, as the new Disney+ sequel series Monsters at Work arrives on the streaming platform on July 2nd. Today we were treated to the full trailer for the show, which follows up on the events of the original Pixar movie, when we saw the best buds cause their company to ditch screams for laugher energy.

The premise of the series sees new character Tylor Tuskmon arrive at Monsters, Inc. under the pretense that he is being employed as a "scarer", only to find the company has taken a different direction. While this takes the emphasis away from original characters Mike and Sully, fans of the duo shouldn't worry too much as the Billy Crystal and John Goodman voiced pair are still very much an integral part

This isn’t the first time that John Ratzenberger has been lauded for what he’s done for Pixar, but it’s still impressive to think that he’s been a part of every Pixar movie in some way, even if he didn’t have a speaking role in Soul. He was still given a character that looked like him apparently, which is a nice thank you for the work he’s done over the years, as it includes him even if it didn’t utilize his voice.

Monsters at Work Disney+ Series Is a True Sequel to Monsters, Inc. Confirms Billy Crystal
Billy Crystal has finally provided an update on Monsters at Work, the animated continuation of Monsters, Inc. in the works at Disney+. It's been known that the series has been on the way for a while now, with Disney CEO Bob Iger first announcing the project in 2017. Updates on the show's progress have been rather stagnant ever since, as last year didn't bring much news beyond the fact that recording on the show had officially begun.

Speaking with Collider about the status of Monsters at Work in a new interview, Billy Crystal shed some light on the new series. This includes confirming that it is indeed an episodic program and that he'll be back as Mike Wazowski with John Goodman also returning as James P. 'Sully' Sullivan. From the interview:

"It's a series. John Goodman and I are Sulley and Mike. The show, time-wise, starts six months after Monsters Inc.
