Golden Globes 2018 TV Predictions: Bold Picks in Every Category

Golden Globes 2018 TV Predictions: Bold Picks in Every Category
Best Drama Series “The Crown” “The Deuce” “The Handmaid’s Tale” “Game of Thrones” “Stranger Things

Spoiler: “This Is Us

Since the above predictions feature three returning series and a virtual lock in “The Handmaid’s Tale,” there’s a lot of room for spoilers. Not only could “This Is Us” very easily land its second straight nod for Best Drama Series, but series like “Mindhunter,” “The Good Doctor,” “Ozark,” “Mr. Robot,” “Better Call Saul,” and, yes, even “The Leftovers” could find their way into the final five. The Golden Globes like spotlighting new series, which benefits shows like “Mindhunter” and “Ozark” which haven’t been crowned by other awards shows just yet. The Globes could be the first, but we’re betting they won’t be able to resist David Simon’s “The Deuce” — given that all-star cast — and last year’s winner, “The Crown.” “Game of Thrones” and

Emmys Add Diverse Range of Nominees In 2017

Emmys Add Diverse Range of Nominees In 2017
After #OscarsSoWhite, when every single one of the 20 Oscar acting nominations were given to white thespians, the Emmy nominations continue to reveal far more diversity in the television industry.

Unlike the movie business, more television shows are aimed at more diverse audiences from the start, which gives some 20,000 Emmy voters a wealth of options. The television industry casts a wider net, aiming shows at every audience segment, especially women, who are consistently underserved by the Hollywood studios, despite their strong box office stats. And television series can take more chances on giving shows time to find their core audience.

All In The Family at 45: The Show That Couldn’t Be Made Today

  • Cinelinx
45 years ago, one of the most divisive shows ever made debuted and became the biggest hit of the 1970s. All In The Family hit the airwaves in 1971 and created a maelstrom of controversy. The non-pc humor of the show would never be tolerated today. However, was the show really racially insensitive or was it just using humor to cast some light on the ignorance and prejudices of the world?

Based on the Brit-com Till Death Do Us Part (which had debuted in 1965), the CBS series All In The Family (1971-1979) was a no-holds barred sitcom about working-class bigot Archie Bunker, an unapologetic racist, homophobic, sexist lout from Astoria, NY. Archie had an opinion on everything, and never failed to offend everyone. The character used inflammatory, non-pc language on a weekly basis. He regularly squared off with his liberal Democrat son-in law Mike in heated arguments about minorities, immigrants, women, non-Christians

StreamFix: 'Gilmore Girls' and 15 Other October Musts
Hope you like scares, because here comes a chilling fact: If "Gilmore Girls" began today, Lorelai Gilmore would've been born in 1982. Choke on that. Most of these streams are available beginning October 1. Check out our list of streaming musts from Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Crackle.   Hulu "South Park" Did you know Hulu has exclusive rights to "South Park"? It does. And did you know that "The Book of Mormon," which I finally saw, plays like a long, mostly good episode of "South Park"? Except unlike "South Park," my mother loves it? And she's the kind of person who tried banning "Salute Your Shorts" in my house because they sometimes made jokes about jockstraps? It's all confusing, but let's just sit back and watch "South Park" again. Remember Scuzzlebutt, the creature who had Patrick Duffy for a leg? Yeah, that's 17 years old.

Interview: Director Rob Reiner on Latest Film ‘And So it Goes’

Chicago – Rob Reiner has lived two distinct show business lives. He played a major role in one of the most famous television shows in history, “All in the Family,” and broke out afterward as a classic American film director, with hits such as “This is Spinal Tap” and “The Princess Bride.” His latest film is “And So it Goes.”

The film stars Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton, as an older couple discovering a connection that on the surface seems highly unlikely. This is Rob Reiner’s 15th feature film as director, after such classics as “The Sure Thing,” “Stand By Me,” “When Harry Met Sally…,” “Misery,” “A Few Good Men,” “The American President” and “Ghosts of Mississippi.” Michael Douglas last worked with Reiner when he portrayed the title character in “The American President.” Reiner himself performs a small supporting role in “And So it Goes.”

Keck's Exclusives: Sally Struthers Remembers All in the Family Mom Jean Stapleton

As the world mourned Jean Stapleton this week, I was reminded of the sadness I felt in the fall of 1980 when it was revealed on CBS's Archie Bunker's Place (the rechristened All in the Family) that Stapleton's Edith Bunker had died suddenly of a stroke.  Stapleton's TV daughter Sally Struthers (Gloria) shares memories of her onscreen mom, who passed away May 31 at age 90 of undisclosed causes.

'All in the Family' star Jean Stapleton dead at 90
New York (AP) — Jean Stapleton, the stage-trained character actress who played Archie Bunker's far better half, the sweetly naive Edith, in TV's groundbreaking 1970s comedy "All in the Family," has died. She was 90. Stapleton died Friday of natural causes at her New York City home surrounded by friends and family, her son, John Putch, said Saturday. Little known to the public before "All In the Family," she co-starred with Carroll O'Connor in the top-rated CBS sitcom about an unrepentant bigot, the wife he churlishly but fondly called "Dingbat," their daughter Gloria (Sally Struthers) and liberal son-in-law Mike, aka Meathead...

Wednesday Comedy Roundup: Modern Family 4.18, Whitney 2.15 & 2.16

Modern Family Season 4, Episode 18: “The Wow Factor”

Written by Ben Karlin

Directed by Steven Levitan

Airs on Wednesdays at 9pm on ABC

This week we see the return of Modern Family and it’s back on top form. Leaving behind the new, experimental elements of episodes “Best Men” and “Bad Hair Day“, the Dunphy/Pritchett clan are back to their old, entertaining ways. Cam acts like a drama queen, Jay tries to get out of one of Manny’s artsy events, and Phil gets in over his head.

We return to the house-flipping plot this week as Cam and Claire play each other when working on the renovation. Cam “Trojan horses” Claire where he shows her an extravagant design option with a hefty sum so the compromise is the option he actually wants. Claire has her own game called ‘The Number Dump’ where she deliberately talks about percentages and

Wednesday Comedy Roundup: Modern Family 4.15, Whitney 2.9 & Workaholics 3.15

Modern Family Season 4, Episode 15: “Heart Broken”

Written by Dan O’Shannon, Abraham Higginbotham and Bianca Douglas

Directed by Steven Levitan

Airs on Wednesdays at 9pm on ABC

Modern Family ditched its typical format this week and showed us how the three principal couples spent their Valentine’s Day and for once Claire and Phil’s story wasn’t the most hilarious.

Once again we saw the brilliant return of Phil’s alter ego, Clive Bixby. Their yearly tradition of going to a hotel and pretending not to know each other wasn’t as funny as previous episodes as Claire suffers a minor heart issue. This time round, it felt quite incoherent with the children not knowing Claire and Phil were home before throwing a party. However, it’s lovely to see how worried they are about their mother.

The show rarely explores why Jay and Gloria’s marriage works

Modern Family Season 4, Episode 14: “A Slight at the Opera”

Written by Paul Corrigan & Brad Walsh

Directed by Jim Bagdonas

Airs on Wednesdays at 9pm on ABC

This week’s episode consists of a whole load of plays ranging from the obvious school production, a rehearsed game of golf, to Haley and Dylan building a fake life as parents and seeing crash around them all in an afternoon.

The fantastic Nathan Lane is back this week as Pepper, covered head to toe in golf attire. Joining him on the golf course is a focused Mitch who is intent on beating his father after months of practicing and “Pepper talks”, and Jay trying to teach Phil. An interesting setup, Jay surprises us this week by being kind to Phil and bonding with his son. The jaunt teaches everyone a lesson and really comes together with the

How Has Sally Struthers Changed In 4 Decades?

How Has Sally Struthers Changed In 4 Decades?
Sally Struthers may have gotten her big break when she starred alongside Jack Nicholson in "Five Easy Pieces," but she is best known for her role as Gloria Stivic on '70s sitcom "All In The Family."

In the four decades that she has been in the public eye, Struthers has tried just about every look in the book: From feathered hair in the 1970s to some pretty awkward uses of spandex in the '80s and '90s to her love of black, draping separates and brightly-colored accessories today.

To celebrate Sally Struthers' 64th birthday on July 28th, we're taking a look back at how the 'Gilmore Girls' actress and ChildFund International activist has evolved over the years. Isn't she just adorable?
