Peter Dinklage just set an Emmy nomination record in Best Drama Supporting Actor

Peter Dinklage just set an Emmy nomination record in Best Drama Supporting Actor
It’s seventh heaven for Peter Dinklage. The “Game of Thrones” star received his seventh Best Drama Supporting Actor Emmy nomination Thursday, setting a new record in the category. Dinklage was previously tied with fellow six-time nominees Will Geer (“The Waltons”), Bruce Weitz (“Hill Street Blues”), Ed Begley Jr. (“St. Elsewhere”) and Jimmy Smits (“L.A. Law”). Only Begley never won and Dinklage is the only one of the six to have won twice, in 2011 and 2015.

Dinklage is the only “Game of Thrones” star to have been nominated for every season of the show so far and the only performer to have won. He’s up against his co-star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Matt Smith (“The Crown”), Joseph Fiennes (“The Handmaid’s Tale”), Mandy Patinkin (“Homeland”) and David Harbour (“Stranger Things”).

Peter Dinklage Is Now the Most-Nominated Actor in the Supporting Actor in a Drama Series Category
Peter Dinklage just became the most nominated person ever in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category, thanks to his seventh nomination Thursday for his role as Tyrion Lannister on “Game of Thrones.”

The star was previously in a tie for that record with Will Geer from “The Waltons,” Jimmy Smits from “La Law,” Ed Begley Jr. from “St. Elsewhere” and Bruce Weitz from “Hill Street Blues.”

Dinklage has played the cunning Lannister on the HBO fantasy series since its premiere in 2011, and has won the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series award twice, in 2011 and again in 2015.

Emmys 2018: Will Best Drama Actress nominees line up with Best Drama Series for the first time in 31 years?

Emmys 2018: Will Best Drama Actress nominees line up with Best Drama Series for the first time in 31 years?
Best Drama Actress is one of the most competitive Emmy categories this year, and it could be especially rare depending on who makes the cut. It’s possible that all of the nominees will come from shows up for Best Drama Series. This has happened only three times before: 1980, 1986 and 1987. As of this writing our racetrack odds for Drama Actress and Drama Series don’t line up that way. But it would only take one or two surprises to bring the two categories into alignment.

The projected Drama Series nominees based on our odds are “The Americans,” “The Crown,” “Game of Thrones,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Stranger Things,” “This Is Us” and “Westworld.” Those seven have been the consensus picks since our predictions center opened this past spring, and six of those series had lead actresses in our predicted Drama Actress lineup up until late June.

Peter Dinklage poised to set record for most Best Drama Supporting Actor Emmy nominations

Peter Dinklage poised to set record for most Best Drama Supporting Actor Emmy nominations
Peter Dinklage has long been the “award representative” for “Game of Thrones.” He’s the only actor from the sprawling ensemble cast to have been Emmy-nominated every season so far and a seventh Best Drama Supporting Actor nomination Thursday will make him stand alone as the most nominated performer in the category.

Dinklage is currently in a five-way tie with fellow six-time nominees Will Geer (“The Waltons”), Bruce Weitz (“Hill Street Blues”), Ed Begley Jr. (“St. Elsewhere”) and Jimmy Smits (“L.A. Law”). All except Begley have won and Dinklage is the only one of the six to have won twice, in 2011 and 2015.

Harry Dean Stanton’s Final Film ‘Lucky’ Finally Gets A UK Release Date

We’ve been championing it on the site for months, and now we can reveal that Harry Dean Stanton’s poignant final film Lucky has a UK release date.

Lucky follows the spiritual journey of Harry Dean Stanton’s character ‘Lucky’, a cantankerous, self-reliant 90 year old atheist, and the quirky characters that inhabit the Arizona town where he lives. Having out-lived and out-smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self-exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment.

The cast also features director David Lynch (Twin Peaks, Mulholland Drive, Blue Velvet), Ron Livingston (The Conjuring, Swingers, Office Space), Ed Begley Jr.(St. Elsewhere), and Tom Skerritt (Alien, Top Gun, Contact).

Our review of the film from the London Film Festival last year read:

2018 Emmys: 5 reasons why ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ will win Best Comedy Series

“I really think you may be onto something with your ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ prediction,” Gold Derby chief Tom O’Neil confided to me via email. “But, sorry, I’m not gutsy enough to join you.” For months now I’ve been predicting “Curb Your Enthusiasm” to finally win the Best Comedy Series Emmy. However, looking at the official Gold Derby odds I know I am going out on a limb. None of our experts from around the web or other in house editors are predicting the HBO stalwart to take home the top honor.

Take a read of my five reasons that “Curb” is in prettty prettty prettty good shape to win on Emmy night and then let me know in the comment section what you think. Is Tom being foolish for not joining me out on that limb or am I going to fall in disgrace?

George Clooney: Looking Back on the ‘Extremely Normal’ Man’s Extraordinary Career

George Clooney: Looking Back on the ‘Extremely Normal’ Man’s Extraordinary Career
In 1994 a little show called “ER” premiered on NBC. Created by prolific science-fiction writer Michael Crichton, the series was a medical drama, somewhat in the tradition of “St. Elsewhere,” and focused on the private lives and burgeoning careers of emergency room doctors in Chicago’s County General Hospital. Among the cast members were Anthony Edwards, of “Top Gun” fame, up-and-comers Julianna Margulies and Noah Wyle, and George Clooney, a relatively unknown actor from Kentucky with a smattering of TV credits to his name, including recurring roles on “Roseanne,” the short-lived CBS comedy “E/R” and “The Facts of Life,” on which Clooney played the eponymous “George,” a charismatic handyman with winged hair who eventually quits his job to go on tour with pop star Cinnamon (played by ’90s singer Stacey Q).

ER” became a giant hit, winning numerous Emmy awards, with Clooney its resident heartthrob. If you were in college at the time,

Critics Call Out the Shows With the Most Preposterous Premises Ever — IndieWire Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday.

This week’s question: Which show that actually made it to air has the most preposterous premise you’d ever encountered?

Kaitlin Thomas (@thekaitling), TVGuide.com

I don’t really know if “Sleepy Hollow” truly had the most preposterous premise I’ve ever encountered, but it was the first show that came to mind this week, because it never should have worked. The show was built around the idea that Ichabod Crane was a hunky history professor-turned-soldier who woke up in present day when someone raised the Headless Horseman, who was revealed to be one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. That sounds like a lot on its own, but there was so much more: America had a magical history! There was a magic bible belonging to George Washington that explained all this stuff!

Mark Harmon and His Family Enjoy Staying out of the Hollywood Spotlight: "It's Who We Are" (Exclusive)

On NCIS, no case ever stumps naval investigator Leroy "Jethro" Gibbs, but in real life, Mark Harmon, 66, has long been befuddled by one mystery: fame. "My parents kept things real — I had no idea they were famous," says the son of sportscaster Tom Harmon and actress Elyse Knox. "In fact, it didn’t hit me until one day when I was riding in the car with my father in Ann Arbor, Mi — I was maybe eight and could barely see above the dashboard — and we stopped at a crosswalk. Suddenly, we were surrounded by people who recognized my dad and were really thrilled to see him. I remember looking at this man I thought I knew so well and thinking, Who are you?" Millions of people ask the same question about Mark to this day. He’s the star of TV’s No. 1 drama yet he maintains an intense sense of privacy.

Look back at Kerry Washington’s historic Emmy nomination for ‘Scandal’

Look back at Kerry Washington’s historic Emmy nomination for ‘Scandal’
Scandal,” which ends its seven-season run on Thursday, April 19, is a benchmark in many ways. At the time of its April 2012 premiere, it was the first network drama series with an African-American female lead, Kerry Washington, since “Get Christie Love!” with Teresa Graves in 1974. It savvily used social media to turn itself into a red-hot hit. It was the last series Shonda Rhimes created before she signed her new deal with Netflix last year. It had some of the craziest twists that defied logic and storytelling. It gave us new vernacular, like “gladiator,” “it’s handled,” “jam,” “bitch baby,” “white hat” and yes, even “I want my bones!” It went to great lengths — with lamps, in particular — to hide a pregnancy. It showed that a woman could sustain herself on a diet of popcorn and red wine. And it ended a long drought at the Emmys.

‘This Is Us’ would be first show to score back-to-back double Best Drama Actor Emmy nominations in 19 years

‘This Is Us’ would be first show to score back-to-back double Best Drama Actor Emmy nominations in 19 years
This Is Us” pulled off a surprise last year when both Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia made the Best Drama Actor Emmy lineup. They were just the fifth pair of co-stars this century to nab nominations. None of the other four duos accomplished it again — one pair, “True Detective”’s Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in 2014, was a one-and-done deal — so if Brown and Ventimiglia make the cut again, they’d be the first co-stars to go back-to-back in the category since 1999.

The last twosome to score multiple Best Drama Actor nominations together were “NYPD Blue” stars Dennis Franz and Jimmy Smits, who went on a five-year streak from 1995 to 1999, with Franz winning three times and Smits going 0-5. Franz won his first Emmy for the cop drama in 1994 against his original partner in crime, David Caruso.

Denzel Washington’s Not Worried About Netflix, But Says He’ll Finish His Career in Theater

Denzel Washington’s Not Worried About Netflix, But Says He’ll Finish His Career in Theater
While movie stars from Will Smith to Adam Sandler have embraced Netflix projects at the expense of seeing their work open in theaters around the country, Denzel Washington has yet to change things up. The actor may have started his career on the small screen with his breakthrough role in “St. Elsewhere,” but he hasn’t appeared in a television role since the nineties, and his commitment to appearing in theaters couldn’t be more obvious today: His next role after his Oscar-nominated performance in “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” is on Broadway, where he plays the the unpredictable saloon regular Hickey in a new production of Eugene O’Neil’s “The Iceman Cometh.”

The play, currently in previews, marks the actor’s first Broadway production since 2014’s “A Raisin in the Sun,” but he said it remains his favorite medium.

Emmys 2018: Will Peter Dinklage (‘Game of Thrones’) become the most nominated Drama Supporting Actor in history?

Emmys 2018: Will Peter Dinklage (‘Game of Thrones’) become the most nominated Drama Supporting Actor in history?
Peter Dinklage has been nominated at the Emmys for all six of his previous seasons as savvy adviser Tyrion Lannister in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” and he has won twice (2011 and 2015). Now he’s on the cusp of making history and all he needs to do is earn another nomination for the seventh season of the epic fantasy series, which aired last summer. If he does he’ll set a new record for the most Drama Supporting Actor nominations in the history of the category.

As it stands there is a five-way tie for Best Drama Supporting Actor. Will Geer (“The Waltons,” 1973-1978), Bruce Weitz (“Hill Street Blues,” 1981-1986), Ed Begley Jr. (“St. Elsewhere,” 1983-1988), Jimmy Smits (“L.A. Law,” 1987-1992) and Dinklage (2011-2016) all contended six times. “Game of Thrones” was absent from the 2017 Emmy race since it didn’t air new episodes during the eligibility period, but now

Too Many TV Reboots/Remakes/Re-Vamp’s/Sequel Series Revivals/Prequel Series

I’ve been watching, among other things, the current reboot of ‘Will & Grace‘. One of, many, many, many new TV reboots that are occurring. Alright, I know, I’m not breaking any new ground, Hollywood’s not that original, blah, blah, blah. Still though, this TV reboot caught my attention. For one thing–really? This show you’re rebooting? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love ‘Will & Grace‘ I actually I might argue that it’s one of the more underrated shows of all-time, and had it not been directly up against ‘CSI‘ for so many years, I think it might’ve won more Best Comedy Series Emmys than it actually did. It’s still one of only three series, ‘All in the Family‘ and ‘The Golden Girls‘ being the others, where every original main member of the regular cast won an acting Emmy for said series. I

Red Dwarf: creating the pop culture of the future

Andrew Moir Oct 26, 2017

Andrew takes a nerdy dive into the pop culture real and fictional that's made its way into the world of Red Dwarf...

Creating culture within science-fiction can be tricky. It’s potentially alienating, with the audience required to understand allusions without a reference point. Then again, if you throw in too many contemporary references, the future starts to look dated pretty quickly. Red Dwarf has walked that fine line, building its own stars and entertainment but chucking in the familiar, just to keep the world grounded. We take a look at humanity’s future culture as seen through the eyes of Lister, Rimmer, Cat, Kryten and Holly.

Mr Robot season 3 episode 1 review: Power Save Mode

3.1 Power Save Mode

When it’s all said and done Mr. Robot may be the only show in history where I wouldn’t be completely disappointed if all of this was just in the main character’s head the whole time.

Okay, that’s probably not true. The 'this was all a dream/hallucination/snowglobe' hasn’t been attempted in a meaningful way since St. Elsewhere in 1988 and rightfully so. It’s cheap and it undercuts rule #1 in the television Hippocratic oath: What you’re seeing matters.

Still, on Mr. Robot we often have a very little meaningful concept of exactly what we’re even seeing.
