The Winners Of The 68th Annual Writers Guild Of America Awards

The 68th Annual Writers Guild of America Awards have just concluded with disappointing, though not surprising, results: Spotlight has claimed their award for Original Screenplay, while The Big Short has won Adapted Screenplay (note that there’s no “best” in front of these categories due to their silly rules which excluded several of the top nominees).

As noted earlier, Spotlight and The Big Short still have to go up against the rest of their competition when it comes time for the Oscars, so these might not be the winners on the big night, though it certainly seems like the most likely outcome. The former still has to go up against the brilliantly-written Inside Out, while the latter must still face off against the very popular Room.

Again, just like tonight, all four of the other Adapted Screenplay Oscar nominees are easily better than Adam McKay’s banking manual, so let

Nominations For The 68th Annual Writers Guild Of America Awards

The Writers Guild of America has just announced the nominations for their annual awards for Best Screenplays (by writers who are guild signatories). That’s right, before you get nervous thinking that your favorite may have been left off the list, you must remember that the WGA is the group that is not all-inclusive and leaves out several of the top contenders each year due to them not being part of the guild or not following their very specific rules. For this reason, you won’t see Inside Out, The Hateful Eight, and Ex Machina in the Original Screenplay category or Room, Brooklyn, or Anomalisa in the Adapted screenplay category.

Taking a look at what’s left over for the nominations, we find many that were expected to make a showing, including Spotlight and Bridge of Spies for Original Screenplay, though they apparently had to sink to really low depths

Sunday Comedy Round-up: The Simpsons 25.01, Bob’s Burgers 4.01, Family Guy 12.01, American Dad! 10.01, Hello Ladies 1.01

While everyone is still reeling from Sunday’s Breaking Bad finale, here’s a roundup from the lighter, non-Meth side with “Animation Domination” over on Fox (the season premieres of The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, and American Dad!) and the comic stylings of Stephen Merchant over on HBO (the series premiere of Hello Ladies). Here are the highlights, lowlights, and “what the…?”s of the evening.

The Simpsons, Season 25, Episode 1, “Homerland”

Written by Stephanie Gillis

Directed by Bob Anderson

Airs Sundays at 8pm Est on Fox

Ringing in its 25th season (seriously, the show can rent a car now), The Simpsons begins the year with a not-quite-so-timely riff on Homeland, which celebrates its own third season premiere this week. There are a few laughs, but not as many as the writers were lunging for a la Family Guy (i.e. a flashback to Homer’s “southern accent”) and

In Defence Of… Jennifer Aniston

When Friends, formerly titled Insomnia Café, first hit TV screens way back in October 1994, no one imagined the worldwide success it would achieve, let alone that the six actors who played the lead roles would become such international stars.

It has not been so rosy since the series ended in 2004, however, as neither David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, Matt Le Blanc, Lisa Kudrow, nor Jennifer Aniston have made noticeable and befitting transitions to the cinema screen, although Aniston, with her sharp comedic talent and spellbinding sexuality, has continually defied expectations, detracting reviews and unappreciative film roles to become something of an underrated winner.

It’s easy to see why she’s had the most success. While there’s no doubt that each member of the Friends cast brought their own talents to the table, it was always Aniston who stole the show as plucky fashionista Rachel Green, and her

Poulter, whose last film was the Dexter Fletcher-directed indie drama Wild Bill, will begin shooting Millers on July 18.

Russell Brand comes to FX for late-night specials

Russell Brand comes to FX for late-night specials
FX has joined forces with Russell Brand and will make a foray into late-night TV with him in 2012.

The cable channel has sealed a deal with the comedian/actor/Katy Perry husband for six half-hour, late-night specials that will debut in the spring. The shows will feature Brand performing in front of and interacting with a live audience, but it sounds less like a traditional talk show than a series of current events-driven comedy gigs.

"We look forward to supporting Russell and his partner Troy Miller's ['Flight of the Conchords,' 'Bored to Death'] ambition to strip down the hosted comedy format to its most fundamental elements and to create something daring and unfiltered for the FX audience," says Nick Grad, FX's head of original programming.

As for Brand? "I am so excited I'm on the point of climax. In fact I will put the 'O' into FX, which spells Fox, which is actually the channel's real name,
