Emmy Experts say Diana Rigg (‘Game of Thrones’) will finally win for playing Olenna Tyrell thanks to memorable death scene

Emmy Experts say Diana Rigg (‘Game of Thrones’) will finally win for playing Olenna Tyrell thanks to memorable death scene
Gold Derby’s Emmy Experts from major media outlets are nearly unanimous in predicting that Diana Rigg will finally win Best Drama Guest Actress for her stand-out role of Olenna Tyrell on HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” This is Rigg’s fourth nomination for playing the fan-favorite character and she has yet to win, so why now? No doubt our awards pundits are convinced that Rigg’s memorable death scene in “The Queen’s Justice” will help push her over the edge.

Over the years many actors have won Emmys for dying on-screen, including such memorable performances as Zeljko Ivanek (“Damages” in 2008), Drea de Matteo (“The Sopranos” in 2004) and Peter Boyle (“The X-Files” in 1996). That’s likely why our Experts think Rigg has a real shot this year to claim Emmy gold

Movie Review – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, 2017.

Written and Directed by Martin McDonagh.

Starring Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage, Abbie Cornish, John Hawkes, Samara Weaving, Caleb Landry Jones, Lucas Hedges, Zeljko Ivanek, and Clarke Peters.

Synopsis:

Distraught at the lack of development in her daughter’s murder case after seven months, Mildred Hayes resorts to renting out three billboards on the outskirts of town in order to catch the attention of local law enforcement.

Diving back into the mind of Academy Award-winning writer/director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths), Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a film quite unlike anything you’ve seen before – which, if you’re familiar with McDonagh’s off-beat cinema, is exactly what you expect. His savage script and relatable characters create a scenario that is at once both bizarre and totally understandable in its irrationalism.

Frances McDormand dominates as a mother, raw with

53rd Chicago International Film Festival Review – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, 2017.

Starring Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage, Abbie Cornish, John Hawkes, Samara Weaving, Caleb Landry Jones, Lucas Hedges, Kathryn Newton, Kerry Condon, Amanda Warren, Zeljko Ivanek, Clarke Peters, and Sandy Martin.

Synopsis:

In this darkly comic drama, a mother personally challenges the local authorities to solve her daughter’s murder, when they fail to catch the culprit.

Mark Twain once wrote that “Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured”, which is true and a lesson the residents of the titular town of Ebbing, Missouri will come to realize. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri isn’t like the typical murder mystery where once a case is forced back into the eyes of the public and law enforcement, overlooked clues from

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” is one of the very best films of 2017

Very few films are perfect. That’s a rare beast in the cinematic world. So, I want to be perfectly clear when I say that Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is perfect. It truly is. The movie stands tall among almost every single other 2017 release. As terrific as the Trailers have been, they in no way prepare you for the staggering heights of this work. Opening in theaters this week, it could very well become a strong hit for Fox Searchlight. Beyond that, the flick is undoubtedly going to be an Academy Award favorite when nominations are announced. That goes without saying at this point. Voters will go hard for this one. This movie is a black comedy of sorts. It has been many month since Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) found out that her daughter was raped and murdered. The police, led by Chief Willoughby (Woody Harrelson) have no leads,

Madam Secretary‘s Elizabeth & Co. couldn’t avoid a governmental shutdown in Sunday’s episode, but that was hardly the toughest blow the hour offered up: By the end of the hour that Sec. McCord’s Chief of Staff Nadine Tolliver was ending her tenure at the State Department.

Madam Secretary's Zeljko Ivanek Previews Looming Government Shutdown, Aka 'Politics at Its Worst'
A government shutdown becomes a very possible event in Sunday’s Madam Secretary (CBS, 10/9c), and guess which tightly wound chief of staff isn’t pleased with that potential outcome?

While Russell Jackson views Congress’ inability to pass a budget — and the resultant consequences — as quite frustrating, “I actually love that storyline, because it’s not too far from possible reality,” star Zeljko Ivanek tells TVLine. “It’s politics at its worst.”

He recalls that, at the end of Season 3, “We elected a president, an independent, who now has to navigate not just one opposition party, but two opposition parties

Madam Secretary Season 3 Episode 10 Review: Gift Horse

  • TVfanatic
A horse is a horse, of course, of course, except when that horse is actually a symbolic endorsement of a controversial geopolitical movement that could escalated tensions with the Chinese.

Madam Secretary Season 3 Episode 10 was nice lighthearted break from the recent heavier issues the show tackled.

Blake found himself in a manufactured international comedy of errors, Russell was right back up to his old tricks, and Henry just can't stay away from spy craft. 

I really expected hippophile Elizabeth to be the one most invested in the titular horse's future, so Blake's sudden devotion was surprising. And hilarious.

I just kept picturing him begging for a pony as a kid and only getting those Breyer figurines instead. 

I can only assume (and hope) that the Mongolian Independence issue and Russian hacking will come up again later in Madam Secretary Season 3 so that this plot line was good for more than

Madam Secretary Season 3 Episode 9 Review: Snap Back

  • TVfanatic
I'm pretty sure being able to ask the chief of staff to the President of the United States for a recommendation letter when you've barely spoken to him is the definition of privilege. Stevie didn't really realize what she was getting into on Madam Secretary Season 3 Episode 9 when she asked Russell for a sit down.

As a former young "mod-pro" resident of DC, I had so many feelings about the opening scenes at the McCord house. I'll start by saying that, for once, Jason was the least annoying and most in touch person in the family.

Let's start by how hilarious is was that Elizabeth and Henry were worried about law school tuition. Not only are they probably pulling in at least $300k between them, but there's family money.

Of course, my middle class Midwestern upbringing leaves me baffled as to why mom and dad are paying for post grad at all.

X-Men: Apocalypse Review: Marvel Franchise Takes Step Back Despite Bryan Singer, Challenging Themes

'X-Men: Apocalypse' with Oscar Isaac in the supervillainous title role. 'X-Men: Apocalypse' review: Step back for series, but latest 'X-Men' movie 'works well enough' There's a three-way brawl going on in the Marvel universe, but it doesn't involve Spider-Man, Captain America, or Deadpool. Instead, the combatants are the three major movie studios who've divvied up the film rights to Marvel characters in licensing deals, some of which go back decades. In this corner we have Sony, makers of a Spider-Man series that has sunk so low since 2004's Spider-Man 2 that they punted the character back to our second combatant, Marvel Studios. In 2004, after years of seeing the majors compromise their intellectual property by making horrible film adaptations, they decided to finance and produce their own damn movies, in what would develop into an unprecedented winning streak. To this day, just when you think they're finally out of gas, Marvel

Review: On 'The Americans,' will 'The Day After' make Elizabeth do something awful?
A review of tonight's The Americans coming up just as soon as I promise you it'll be better if you blink... "This is why we're here." -Elizabeth At 10, I was too young to watch The Day After when ABC aired it in the fall of 1983, but I knew all about it. The marketing for it was inescapable, making it into the kind of event that the Jennings and Beeman families would watch together (and that even the agents of the rezidentura would want to check out). I didn't even need to see the thing to have nightmares about it, and about the larger peril of global thermonuclear annihilation that hung over us every damn day back then. More than once as a kid, I had to ask one of my parents to reassure me at bedtime that the world wouldn't blow up while I was asleep, and we know from
