Bruce Rosenblum Taps Top TV Executives For Television Academy’s Exec Committee

Interviews with Eric Stoltz and Sasha Roiz

Several updates today, which you may have caught on Twitter earlier.

If you don't have the DVD, the last five episodes of Caprica are available on Hulu and Syfy Rewind.

Den of Geek has a new interview with Eric Stoltz that's pretty interesting to read. (Reminder: His latest episode of Private Practice airs tonight at 10 pm on ABC.)

2009 Emmys Light on Horror Nominations

Despite being nominated for Best Drama and having its star Anna Paquin win Best Actress in a TV Drama at this year's Golden Globes, "True Blood" was shut out of the major categories for the 2009 Emmy Awards, which announced its nominees earlier today.

Here's a list of the horror-tinged shows that were recognized (with a few others whose fanbase includes a lot of our readers thrown in for good measure):
