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.

Washington received two Best Drama Actress nominations,

‘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

Alec Bojalad Oct 12, 2017

Mr Robot starts its third season off on the right foot with an uncharacteristically clear yet still paranoid episode...

This review contains spoilers.

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.

Ed Begley Jr.'s Self-Sustaining L.A. Home Only Has $10 Utility Bill

"St. Elsewhere" star Ed Begley Jr.'s newly built L.A. home should be the envy of all his neighbors because it's completely self-sustainable with a $10 monthly utility bill. Ed -- who some might also recognize from "Best in Show" and "Better Call Saul" -- just built the first-of-its-kind home in L.A.'s Studio City neighborhood.

Josh Hutcherson Plays a Janitor/Gamer Who Travels Through Time To Save Humanity in Funny Trailer For Future Man

Hulu has released a fantastic trailer for their upcoming sci-fi comedy series Future Man in which Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) plays a character named Josh Futturman. He is a janitor by day and a gamer by night that is recruited by a couple of mysterious visitors to travel through time and embark on a mission to prevent the extinction of humanity.

This movie looks like a ton of fun and I like how it pokes fun of itself by saying that it's the exact same plot as the movie The Last Starfighter. There are also nods to a lot of other classic films like Terminator, Back to the Future, Top Gun, and more. Here's the synopsis:

Future Man follows a janitor by day/world-ranked gamer by night who travels through time to prevent the extinction of humanity after mysterious visitors from the future proclaim him the key to defeating the imminent super-race invasion.

"Twin Peaks," Episode 16 Recap: You've Made My Heart So Full

  • MUBI
Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series."Finally," says the One-Armed Man a.k.a. Phillip Gerard (Al Strobel) about midway through Part 16 of Mark Frost and David Lynch's Twin Peaks revival, right after a certain FBI Special Agent returns to the world of the living. It's been 13 episodes since we've seen full trace of Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), though even then he wasn't entirely himself. (Being trapped for 25 years in the otherworldly Black Lodge has a way of tempering certain personality traits.) Now, however, he's "one hundred percent" (in his estimation, anyway), and there's certainly plenty of giddy pleasure to be had watching the energetic, Boy Scout-like Cooper of old take charge. But that presumes that this is the Dale Cooper of old, and it quickly becomes apparent that that's not the case.

Dunham and Konner May Pen "Toni Erdmann" Remake

Robert here! Remember a few months ago when we all learned that Jack Nicholson was making a long-awaited return to the silver screen to star with Kristen Wiig in an American remake of bonkers German comedy Toni Erdmann? No, no, it was not a St. Elsewhere style coma dream. That possibly brilliant, possibly ill-advised project is still well underway, and there has been a new development: universally beloved and totally uncontroversial creator, writer, director, and star of HBO's Girls Lena Dunham and her co-writer Jenni Konner are in talks to pen the script.

Animal House's Stephen Furst: His Heartbreaking, Inspiring Battle with Diabetes Before Death at 63

Animal House's Stephen Furst: His Heartbreaking, Inspiring Battle with Diabetes Before Death at 63
Stephen Furst, known for his scene-stealing turn as Flounder in National Lampoon’s Animal House, died Friday.

The actor passed away at his California home from complications due to diabetes, his sons confirmed on Facebook. He was 63.

Born in Norfolk, Virgina, the late actor had a life-long history with the disease. He lost both his mother and father to complications from diabetes when he was just 16 years old. Within weeks of each other, Furst’s father and mother died from heart disease and leukemia, respectively.

Furst would later discover he also had diabetes weeks after his father’s death but

Rest In Peace, Brother Flounder: Stephen Furst (1955 – 2017)

“This is Kent Dorfman. He’s a legacy from Harrisburg…”

Like we all must, Stephen Furst, the actor who brought Kent Dorfman, a.k.a. the sweet, portly Delta Tau Chi pledge known as Flounder, to life, has passed away. It’d be hard to argue that Furst’s life wasn’t far too short—after all, he was only 63 years old. But though other actors and well-known figures who have passed recently may have made a more lasting or profound mark on the lives of the audience they left behind, Furst’s death hurts a little bit more for me than those other losses, for a couple of reasons.

In 1977, when I was a freshman at the University of Oregon, I landed a spot as an extra on the set of National Lampoon’S Animal House—specifically, I was cast as a “Delta pledge,” and I also ended up
