Matthew Rhys (‘The Americans’) Emmy upset in the making? Watch out, Sterling, the Russians are coming!

Matthew Rhys (‘The Americans’) Emmy upset in the making? Watch out, Sterling, the Russians are coming!
“The Americans” had some of its strongest Emmy buzz ever this spring thanks to the acclaim for its series finale, “Start,” which aired on May 30. That helped the show break back into the race for Best Drama Series after earning its first nomination in 2016 and falling out in 2017. Now I think it could help Matthew Rhys win Best Drama Actor for the first time.

Granted, “The Americans” didn’t gain too much ground with Emmy voters in its last season. Besides Best Drama Series it’s back in the categories it has competed in for the last two years: Drama Actor for Rhys, Drama Actress for Keri Russell and Drama Writing for Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg. It fell out of Drama Guest Actress, but that was expected: two-time winner Margo Martindale appeared in too many episodes to compete as a guest, and last year’s nominee Alison Wright didn’t appear at all.

‘Moonlight’s’ Ashton Sanders & ‘Westworld’s’ Jeffrey Wright To Star In Film From ‘Black Panther’ Writer

It feels like Netflix does nothing but make terrible movies. Not to throw shade at Netflix, but with the sheer number of films the company produces, it feels like, for every 10 so-so endeavors, there’s only one film worth noting. So, while the streaming company has a stigma of producing film duds, we can’t forget they also have produced work like “Beasts of No Nation” and “Mudbound,” among others.

The Best Drama Actor Emmy race has 2 sets of co-stars for the first time in 22 years

The Best Drama Actor Emmy race has 2 sets of co-stars for the first time in 22 years
Last year, “This Is Us” became the fifth show this century to produce two Best Drama Actor Emmy nominees with eventual winner Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia. Both are nominated again, but they are joined by another co-star duo, “Westworld”’s Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright, marking the first time in 22 years – and just the third time overall — that the category fielded double nominees from two shows.

The first time there were dual duos was 1995, when “ER”’s Anthony Edwards and George Clooney, and “NYPD Blue”’s Dennis Franz and Jimmy Smits lost to “Chicago Hope” star Mandy Patinkin. Both pairs were nominated the following year, alongside Andre Braugher (“Homicide: Life on the Street”), with Franz triumphing.

Jim Jarmusch Is Making a Zombie Movie With Bill Murray and Selena Gomez
Independent stalwart Jim Jarmusch is making a zombie movie with Bill Murray and has set up the project at Focus Features.

“The Dead Don’t Die,” which also stars Selena Gomez, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi, and Chloe Sevigny, is already filming in Upstate New York. Focus noted Friday that it’s the third Jarmusch film that it’s handled following 2005’s “Broken Flowers” and 2009’s “The Limits of Control.” Joshua Astrachan and Carter Logan are producing.

Murray was seen in on-set photos obtained by the Daily Mail. Murray plays a police officer alongside colleagues portrayed by Driver and Sevigny. Images from Just Jared also show Gomez and a bloody Austin Butler.

Although Jarmsuch had not officially announced the project, Murray mentioned the pic in March in an interview with Philly.com.

“I’ve got a good job coming up. Brace yourself: It’s a zombie movie,” Murray said at the time.
