Can John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf still earn Emmy love despite icky ‘Roseanne’ cancellation?

Can John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf still earn Emmy love despite icky ‘Roseanne’ cancellation?
When Kristin Chenoweth won an Emmy in 2009 for the cancelled ABC comedy “Pushing Daisies,” she joked, “I’m unemployed now, so I’d like to be on ‘Mad Men'” (watch below). Chenoweth’s triumph was hardly the first time someone prevailed at the Emmys for a cancelled TV show, and that’s the one potential bright spot for “Roseanne” scene-stealers John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf following the show’s shocking cancellation. However, while Goodman and Metcalf are still in the running for Emmys, might the icky demise of “Roseanne” thanks to Roseanne Barr‘s racist tweets make the entire program toxic to voters?

Seeabc cancels ‘Roseanne’ following Roseanne Barr’s ‘repugnant’ tweet

Goodman is no stranger to prevailing at the Emmys for cancelled shows, doing just that for “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” a decade ago. He won Best Drama Guest Actor at the 2007 ceremony after NBC turned

Hands on with Underworld Ascendant in the Stygian Abyss

Emma Withington gets hands on with Underworld Ascendant…

Upon entering the ‘Stygian Abyss’ I had picked up some suspect fish, a cheese wheel, and smashed some plates like a good ‘un. You could be mistaken for thinking that I’m describing a playthrough of Skyrim, but Underworld Ascendant‘s debut predecessor – 1992’s Ultima Underworld – is the innovator that gave birth to the RPG monster we’re so fond of today. From the entire Elder Scrolls series to Fallout, BioShock, Dishonoured, Dark Souls, and an absolute sink-hole full more. Can gaming’s Frankenstein bring the classic dungeon crawler forward in time and stand tall among the legions of its present-day brethren?

Published by 505 Games and developed by OtherSide Entertainment, Underworld Ascendant boasts a team whose collective works include: BioShock Infinite, Thief, The Last of Us, and System Shock – not forgetting Og Ultima Underworld creators, Paul Neurath and Warren Spector. Not too shabby,

Michael Mann’s Next Project Will Be About Infamous Murderer Paul Le Roux

Legendary filmmaker Michael Mann hasn’t helmed a feature film since 2015, when he directed “Blackhat.” However, it looks like the director has lined up his next project, and it’s going to take him back to what he knows best, making crime films like “Heat,” “Manhunter,” and “Thief.”

According to a report by Deadline, Mann has purchased the film and TV rights to an upcoming book about infamous criminal Paul Le Roux.

Michael Mann’s 10 Favorite Films

Michael Mann began his career as a visual storyteller on television. He wrote episodes of Starsky and Hutch, directed the made for TV film The Jericho Mile, and served as executive producer on the groundbreaking and stylish hit Miami Vice. Since the 1980s, Mann has established himself as a highly-influential player in the cinematic canon with artful and tragedy-laden crime films such as Thief, Manhunter, and Heat. His films often include the interweaving and clashing of ideologies between two opposing, yet strikingly similar, characters, the presentation of architecture and cityscapes (typically Los Angeles) that personify the setting as both looming over, and removed from, the action, and devastating violence.

In BFI’s most recent Sight & Sound poll, Mann compiled a list of his 10 favorite films which includes a variety of American classics, game-changing silent masterpieces from the 1920s, and a surprising pair of films from 2009. The broken humanity at the

Asc Awards 2018: Roger Deakins Takes Top Cinematography Prize for ‘Blade Runner 2049’
As expected, cinematographer Roger Deakins took the top prize for “Blade Runner 2049” at the 32nd annual Asc Awards at Hollywood & Highland. It was his fourth Asc award, besting the other four Oscar nominees: Bruno Delbonnel (“Darkest Hour”), Hoyte van Hoytema (“Dunkirk”), Dan Laustsen (“The Shape of Water”), and Rachel Morrison (“Mudbound”), the first female from her branch nominated by the Asc and the Academy.

But can Deakins finally earn the elusive Academy Award after 14 nominations? He’s certainly the sentimental favorite for his trippy, sci-fi naturalism in Denis Villeneuve’s “Blade Runner” sequel. And winning the BAFTA Sunday (also his fourth) would certainly provide added momentum.

But there’s also a case to be made for three of the other contenders: Van Hoytema’s innovative IMAX work for Christopher Nolan’s World War II survival epic, Lausten’s sublime imagery for Guillermo del Toro’s Best Picture favorite, and

‘Blade Runner 2049,’ ‘The Crown’ Win Asc Awards for Cinematography

‘Blade Runner 2049,’ ‘The Crown’ Win Asc Awards for Cinematography
Blade Runner 2049” cinematographer Roger Deakins won the top prize for theatrical motion pictures at the 32nd annual American Society of Cinematographers Awards Saturday night.

While the 68-year-old lenser continues to be a bridesmaid at the Oscars, where he is currently 0-14 (with this year’s bid still pending), he’s an old favorite with the Asc: Deakins’ win for Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi sequel is his fifth honor from the organization. He previously won competitive prizes for “The Shawshank Redemption,” “The Man Who Wasn’t There” and “Skyfall,” and received the group’s Lifetime Achievement award in 2011.

Deakins bested the very same quartet he will face at the Oscars in March: Bruno Delbonnel (“Darkest Hour”), Hoyte van Hoytema (“Dunkirk”), Rachel Morrison (“Mudbound”) and Dan Laustsen (“The Shape of Water”). “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” cinematographer Ben Davis replaced Morrison on the British Academy slate.

The 32nd annual American Society of Cinematographers Awards took place on Feb. 17 at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland and were emceed by Turner Classic MoviesBen Mankiewicz. Over the years, the Asc has predicted 128 of the 160 Oscar nominees (80%), including all five of this year’s contenders: Roger Deakins (“Blade Runner 2049”), Bruno Delbonnel (“Darkest Hour”), Dan Laustsen (“The Shape of Water”), Rachel Morrison (“Mudbound”) and Hoyte van Hoytema (“Dunkirk”). But it has only previewed 13 of the last 31 winners of the Oscar for Best Cinematography; that is a a success rate of just 41%.

Deakins, who is the Oscar frontrunner for Best Cinematography, won for the fourth time from 15 bids with the Asc. His previous wins were for “The Shawkshank Redemption” (1994), “The Man Who Wasn’t There” (2001) and “Skyfall” (2012). He has yet to translate any of those victories into an Oscar, where he is 0 for 13.

American Society of Cinematographers Nominates Roger Deakins and Rachel Morrison

The American Society of Cinematographers (Asc) feature film nominees tends to lean toward big-scale movies, and this year is no exception. Their top five include frontrunner Roger Deakins for his stunning visuals in “Blade Runner 2049” as well as Rachel Morrison, who photographed “Mudbound.” Left out were viable but smaller-scale contenders “Call Me By Your Name” and “The Post.”

So far, neither the Asc nor the cinematography branch of the Academy has ever nominated a woman for a feature film. So Morrison’s nomination is a big deal. (Next up for Morrison: Marvel Cinematic Universe’s “Black Panther.”) According to a study by the Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film, women made up 5 percent of cinematographers on the top 250 domestic-grossing films in 2016.
