Beauty vs Beast: Defriended

Jason from Mnpp here wishing the great Rooney Mara a happy 33rd birthday (it's tomorrow) - do you think she will have birthday pie? I like to think that once she got a taste of pie filming A Ghost Story she hasn't been able to stop. Eat all the pie, Rooney! You've earned it. Anyway I've had Rooney on the brain over the past few weeks thanks to the presence of Mark Zuckerberg in our lives - who can look at his face and not want to re-visit all of her take-downs in The Social Network? You're a stronger person than me if you don't find yourself muttering "Good luck with your video-game" to yourself a couple times a day. In that spirit then this week's "Beauty vs Beast"...

Pose: Ryan Murphy's FX Dance-Musical Series Gets Trailer, Premiere Date

Pose: Ryan Murphy's FX Dance-Musical Series Gets Trailer, Premiere Date
FX has unveiled the first trailer for Ryan Murphy’s anticipated LGBTQ-themed dance-musical Pose, which will make its debut on Sunday, June 3 at 9/8c. Set in 1986, the eight-episode series — starring James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek), Kate Mara (House of Cards) and Evan Peters (American Horror Story) — takes on the rise of Donald Trump-style superwealth, the denizens of downtown (including the literary scene) and the underground Lgbtq world known as ball culture.

Peters and Mara play New Jersey couple Stan and Patty, who get sucked into the glamour and intrigue of New York City in the 1980s. Van Der

Beauty vs Beast: To Boston With Love

Jason from Mnpp here with this week's "Beauty vs Beast" - the director David Gordon Green is turning 43 today, so while we wait to see what he does with his Halloween sequel-o-sorts later this year let's cast an eye  a millimeter backwards towards his last movie, the very fine but somewhat overlooked Stronger. I personally was pretty sad the movie never gained any footing during the awards season for its stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Tatiana Maslany or for Miranda Richardson in Supporting - they were all worthy in my book (and Jake made the Bronze in Nathaniel's Film Bitch Awards). But time will be kind to all of them, I think. The film isn't easy on any of its characters - it refuses to sanctify the terror victim or the "supporting girlfriend" at its heart at every turn. These are complicated people in an extremely complicated situation.

You have more faith in Tatiana Maslany returning to the Emmys than Rami Malek [Poll Results]

Much like Sarah Manning’s clones, our readers came out in droves to support Tatiana Maslany. In our recent poll asking which of 2016’s drama lead Emmy champs is most likely to return this year, 70 percent picked the “Orphan Black” star over Rami Malek (“Mr. Robot”).

Both stars didn’t have the chance to defend their crowns, but only Maslany’s was out of necessity. The fifth and final season of “Orphan Black” premiered after last year’s Emmy eligibility period, so her absence was less alarming. Maybe people would’ve voted for her if they could. She will have to bank on her passionate base of supporters to land her a third nomination as it will have been a year since “Orphan Black” left the air.

Malek’s omission was far more cause for concern.

Emmys: Which 2016 drama champ is most likely to return? [Poll]

Emmys: Which 2016 drama champ is most likely to return? [Poll]
Rami Malek (“Mr. Robot”) and Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”) pulled off two of the best Emmy victories in recent history in 2016, taking home Best Drama Actor and Best Drama Actress, respectively. Neither was back in the fray last year — Maslany because she was ineligible and Malek, who was eligible, was dropped. They both could make a return trip this year, but which one is more likely to happen?

After a win for Malek and writing and Best Drama Series nominations for Season 1, “Mr. Robot” took a downturn in Season 2, receiving just three nominations, versus six the previous year, and none in the major categories. Season 2 was less well received than “Mr. Robot”’s inaugural outing and Season 3, which is eligible this year, and the show could recover, as we’ve seen series and performers do time and time again. Malek has gotten consistent raves for his performance, but this year

2018 Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series Emmy Predictions

The big question is whether Emilia Clarke will actually make the jump from the supporting to lead actress category. If she does that likely means Mandy Moore is on the outside looking in. Viola Davis has been nominated two straight years and we expect her to make the cut once again. However, if not Clarke or Moore for the final slot, then who? [Posted April 3]

Kyle MacLachlan (‘Twin Peaks’) could follow in Tatiana Maslany’s footsteps by winning Emmy for playing multiple roles

Kyle MacLachlan (‘Twin Peaks’) could follow in Tatiana Maslany’s footsteps by winning Emmy for playing multiple roles
Emmy voters love rewarding performers who show their range and versatility by playing multiple roles — just look at Tatiana Maslany‘s victory as various clones on “Orphan Black” (Best Drama Actress, 2016). This year no one fits that bill more than “Twin Peaks” scene-stealer Kyle MacLachlan. In Showtime’s revival of the cult fave MacLachlan takes on three different characters: FBI Agent Dale Cooper, Cooper’s evil doppelganger, and the dimwitted Dougie Jones. Will MacLachlan follow in Maslany’s footsteps at the 2018 Emmys?

SEEKyle MacLachlan (‘Twin Peaks: The Return’): Playing 3 characters this time was a ‘new adventure’ [Complete Interview Transcript]

“To be honest, it was exciting,” MacLachlan told us when we recently interviewed him about the pressure of playing three roles. “[With Cooper] there was a connection to the past, but these two new roles definitely pointed toward the future and they were asking me as an actor to do things that I had never really done before.

Emmy Predictions 2018: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series

Emmy Predictions 2018: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series
Last Year’s Winner: Elisabeth Moss, “The Handmaid’s Tale”

Still Eligible: Yes.

Hot Streak: Since Claire Danes took home back-to-back trophies for “Homeland” in 2012 and 2013, there has been a different winner every year.

Fun Fact: Elisabeth Moss won her first lead actress Emmy in 2017, but it was also a first for Hulu. It was the streaming network’s first nomination and first win in the category. Meanwhile, Netflix’s Robin Wright had snagged a nomination five years in a row — and the streaming giant had another nominee last year, as well, in Claire Foy — but it has yet to win.

The Best Actress in a Drama Series race has been extremely tight for the past five or so years, and it’s not loosening up in 2018. Of late, there’s been a lot of year-to-year overlap, including Robin Wright’s active five-year streak for “House of Cards,” Viola Davis
