How To Watch The Primetime Emmy Awards Online And On TV
The 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are set for Sunday, with the ceremony to air live from downtown Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater on Fox beginning at 8 Pm Et/5 Pm Pt. The network will also offer the broadcast via authentication at Fox.com and on the Fox Now app.

The night will cap off the celebration of the year’s best in TV, after last weekend’s two-night Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Fox hasn’t given many hints about the show, which is going hostless for only the fourth time in Emmy history and for the first time since 2003. But it did say this week that Thomas Lennon will handle voice-over duties with a “refreshing, lighthearted take on the traditional factoids that audiences typically learn as winners make their way to the podium mixed with jokes, commentary and unexpected anecdotes.”

‘Downton Abbey’ Surprises Box Office With New Opening Record for Focus Features
Focus Features/Carnival’s “Downton Abbey” is blowing by opening weekend expectations after grossing $13.8 million on Friday and is now expected to take No. 1 with a $31 million opening weekend.

To the surprise of box office trackers, moviegoers have accepted Lord Grantham’s invitation en masse. Released on 3,079 screens — Focus’ widest release since “Atomic Blonde” in 2017 — “Downton Abbey” is now on pace to set a new opening weekend record for Universal’s indie wing, topping the $22.7 million made by “Insidious: Chapter 3” in 2015.

With a passionate fanbase of the hit ITV/PBS TV series to draw from, “Downton Abbey” was expected by analysts to be a hit. However, a more modest opening in the $18-20 million range was expected with a strong hold in later weeks thanks to support from older moviegoers.

Jonathan Van Ness Reveals HIV Diagnosis, Former Drug Addiction

Jonathan Van Ness Reveals HIV Diagnosis, Former Drug Addiction
Queer Eye’s” Jonathan Van Ness is getting vulnerable in his new memoir “Over the Top.”

In a preview of his book with the New York Times, Van Ness opened up about his early struggles with sex and drug addiction as well as his experience with sexual assault, revealing that he was abused by an older boy from his childhood church.

“For a lot of people who are survivors of sexual assault at a young age, we have a lot of compounded trauma,” he said.

That trauma, Van Ness revealed, led to a series of other “self-destructive” behaviors, including spending hours in AOL chat rooms, which he used to meet up with older men for sex in his teens. Later on, Van Ness started college at the University of Arizona in Tucson where he began doing cocaine. And after spending his monthly allowance on the drug, he began advertising sex for more money.

Josefina Molina: Still Battling After All These Years

San Sebastian — She isn’t done yet. The battling character of Josefina Molina, winner of Spain’s 2019 National Cinematography Prize, was glimpsed in her acceptance speech at the San Sebastian Festival on Saturday.

She used part to thank those who had given crucial help, such as, among women, editors Nieves Martin and Carmen Frías (1993’s “La Lola se va a los puertos), and dedicated the prize to Spain’s Association of Women Cineasts and a very early version of herself: “a young girl from Cordoba born during the Civil War who did everything possible through thick and thin to break with the inertia which destined women to become housewives.”

But, having remembered Carmen Alborch and her “intellectual lucidity” and thanked Spanish Vice-president Carmen Calvo for her support of female filmmakers, the brunt of her speech – applauded by Spain’s cultural establishment which packed out the Tabakalera’s main hall – was

TV Review: ‘All Rise’ Starring Simone Missick
Finding a new way to do a legal procedural is such a difficult prospect at this point that it would be hard to blame TV for giving up entirely and just going on autopilot. “All Rise,” however, both indulges the basics of the genre and finds some refreshing ways to twist them into slightly new, more intriguing shapes. Between its cast, subject matter, and many charming friendships,

The clearest example of this comes with the show’s lead character of Lola (Simone Missick), a determined and deeply empathetic attorney turned judge who forms the show’s main perspective and moral backbone.
