Hey, ‘Killing Eve’: Don’t fret about that Best Drama Series Emmy snub, the same thing happened to ‘Breaking Bad’

BBC America’s “Killing Eve,” based on Luke Jennings‘ “Villanelle” novels, had a killing at the Emmys by earning major nominations for Sandra Oh as Best Drama Actress and Phoebe Waller-Bridge as Best Drama Writing. Many awards pundits thought it would do even better, with 5 of our 19 Emmy Experts predicting it would earn a coveted nomination for Best Drama Series. But don’t fret. Just because “Killing Eve” missed out on a drama series bid this year doesn’t mean all hope is lost. After all, the same thing happened to “Breaking Bad.”

You May Hate Adora on Sharp Objects, but You Definitely Love the Actress Who Plays Her

Image Source: HBO

We're only two episodes into HBO's Sharp Objects, but we only needed the premiere to get us seriously hooked. Based on the eponymous novel by Gillian Flynn, the miniseries follows journalist Camille Preaker as she returns to her hometown to investigate the murders of two preteen girls. Returning home is never easy, and Preaker encounters various reminders of that fact during her investigation - namely her mother, Adora Crellin. Adora is played by actress Patricia Clarkson, and her casting is a mark of true genius by the minds behind Sharp Objects.

Clarkson's portrayal of Adora is beautifully intricate in a way that only true character actors can achieve. It's easy to go campy with the "controlling mom and Southern belle" trope, but Adora is dangerous rather than shrill; brutal rather than ostentatious. It's obvious that she's a broken woman, though she hides it behind the facade of

Edie Falco hopes to be 8th performer from ‘Law & Order’ franchise to win an Emmy: Can you name the other 7?

Edie Falco hopes to be 8th performer from ‘Law & Order’ franchise to win an Emmy: Can you name the other 7?
Just how much do the Emmys love Edie Falco? She’s currently the only actress to win lead trophies for a comedy series (“Nurse Jackie” in 2010) and a drama series, and now she hopes to add to her record with a victory for a limited series. On Thursday Falco received a Best Movie/Mini Actress Emmy nomination for her work on the limited series “Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders.” If she wins, that would make Falco the eighth performer from the “Law & Order” franchise to win an Emmy.

So who are the other seven? “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” star Mariska Hargitay is the only performer to prevail at the televised Primetime Emmys, winning Best Drama Actress in 2006. The other six winners all took home their trophies at the Creative Arts in the Best Drama Guest Actress category.

The Best Drama Actor Emmy race has 2 sets of co-stars for the first time in 22 years

The Best Drama Actor Emmy race has 2 sets of co-stars for the first time in 22 years
Last year, “This Is Us” became the fifth show this century to produce two Best Drama Actor Emmy nominees with eventual winner Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia. Both are nominated again, but they are joined by another co-star duo, “Westworld”’s Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright, marking the first time in 22 years – and just the third time overall — that the category fielded double nominees from two shows.

The first time there were dual duos was 1995, when “ER”’s Anthony Edwards and George Clooney, and “NYPD Blue”’s Dennis Franz and Jimmy Smits lost to “Chicago Hope” star Mandy Patinkin. Both pairs were nominated the following year, alongside Andre Braugher (“Homicide: Life on the Street”), with Franz triumphing.

Spider-Man and Seinfeld Actor Stanley Anderson Dies at 78

Spider-Man and Seinfeld Actor Stanley Anderson Dies at 78
Actor Stanley Anderson, best known for his work in the show Seinfeld and in the 2002 Spider-Man, has passed away at age 78, according to a statement from his family. He died peacefully Sunday, six weeks after learning he had brain cancer.

Stanley Anderson gained a reputation as a "President" actor, having played the President in a number of movies. His most notable outing as a President was in the 1998 action flick Armageddon. Even when he wasn't playing Presidents, he regularly seemed to be cast into the role of some other kind of government official, such as judges, senators and generals. In fact, in Spider-Man, he portrayed General Slocum, who was the U.S. general who was interested in buying from Norman Osborn, before Osborn blew Slocum and his men up after becoming the Green Goblin.

Anderson also appeared in the finale episode of Seinfeld, playing a judge. While it was only one episode,

Dick Wolf on What’s Next After His NBC Deal Expires and Why He’ll Never Retire
Casting is an area of television production that is of great importance to uber-producer Dick Wolf, and he makes sure that he has the last word on that, he tells Variety at the Monte Carlo TV Festival, which is paying tribute to the career of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” star Mariska Hargitay, and also hosting “Chicago P.D.’s” Jon Seda, “Chicago Med’s” S. Epatha Merkerson, and “Law & Order: Svu’s” Philip Winchester.

‘Goliath’ Review: Season 2 Is Fine and All, But Mark Duplass’ Kinky Killer Is Out of This World

Let’s get the requisite reactions out of the way: “Goliath” still isn’t the elite drama its pedigree (and inexplicable recognition from the HFPA) implies it could be, but it’s solid — more so now than in its uneven first season. The story of a drunk but persistent Santa Monica attorney who takes on the big bad powers that be continues to feel like an elevated, elongated episode of any ol’ “Law & Order”-esque procedural. But it’s got a more streamlined arc, and new showrunner Lawrence Trilling proves by season’s end that he’s actually interested in a longer game than eight episodes can contain.

Last season, Billy McBride (Billy Bob Thornton) went after a wrongful death suit and his old law partner in the process. This year, the stakes are still personal, as Billy gets involved with a Los Angeles mayoral candidate who may have

Hollywood Flashback: Why Emmy Voters Chose Cynthia Nixon for 'Law & Order' in 2008

Sex and the City made Cynthia Nixon famous and won her a 2004 supporting actress Emmy for her portrayal of workaholic lawyer Miranda Hobbes, her career didn't fare badly with Dick Wolf's Law & Order franchise. Now 52, Nixon made three appearances on NBC's long-running crime franchise.

In 1990, in the second episode of Law & Order's first season, she played the victim of a violent assault who later shoots two young African-Americans on the subway, claiming self-defense. The performance didn't win her an Emmy.

That honor came in 2008 courtesy of the ninth-season Law & Order: Special ...

Jim McKay on Directing ‘Realist Films About People of Color’ For 20 Years

Jim McKay on Directing ‘Realist Films About People of Color’ For 20 Years
At first blush, Jim McKay may not seem like the poster child for diverse filmmaking: He’s a white guy who has spent the bulk of his career directing other people’s TV shows, from “Law & Order” to “The Good Wife.” But the New York filmmaker has consistently delivered astute dramas about the daily lives of underrepresented Americans long before widespread calls for inclusivity hit Hollywood. His new feature, the low budget crowdpleaser “En El Séptimo Día,” is just the latest example.

After his 1996 debut “Girls Town,” McKay won acclaim at Sundance for 2000’s “Our Song,” a Brooklyn-set coming-of-age story starring a young Kerry Washington and others as members of a community marching band in a low-income neighborhood. For his next projects, McKay went straight to television long before the era of Netflix Originals, directing the working class ensemble piece “Everyday People” and the social worker drama “Angel Rodriguez” for HBO.
