Oscar Winners Nominated at the 2018 Emmys

Oscar Winners Nominated at the 2018 Emmys
With more and more movie stars transitioning to television, the number of previous Oscar winners in contention at the Emmys continues to grow. Several Academy Award champs number among the 2018 Emmy nominees that were announced on Thursday, July 12.

One of the most recent Oscar victors in the Emmy lineup is Allison Janney, who won Best Supporting Actress earlier this year for playing an acid-tongued mother in “I, Tonya.” Now she contends for Best Comedy Actress for her small-screen role as another flawed matriarch in “Mom,” which has already brought her two Emmys in the supporting category (2014 and 2015). Janney is a perennial favorite of the TV academy, with 14 total nominations and 5 additional wins.

Janney’s predecessor in the Oscar Supporting Actress category, Viola Davis (“Fences” in 2016), missed out on a Best Drama Actress nom for “How to Get Away with Murder” this year. But she nonetheless showed up in Best Drama

‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ sweeps Emmy noms: Once, twice, three times an Egot for John Legend, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice?

Only 12 entertainers in Hollywood history have won Egot: the showbiz grand slam of Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Awards. Now thanks to NBC’s live production of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” producers John Legend, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice could all join that list at the same time. In one category — Best Variety Special (Live) — the Emmys could give Egot status to three for the price of one, making them the 13th, 14th, and 15th recipients in history. (Check out the complete list of nominations here.)

“Superstar” has a total of 13 nominations, including bids we weren’t expecting like Sara Bareilles for Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actress, Best Movie/Mini Directing and even Legend for Best Movie/Mini Actor, which gives him multiple chances to complete his Egot.

Egot Explosion: John Legend and 4 Others Could Complete Showbiz Grand Slam on Emmy Night

Egot Explosion: John Legend and 4 Others Could Complete Showbiz Grand Slam on Emmy Night
The entertainment industry grand slam known as the Egot is so rare that only 12 people in history have completed it by winning an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony. And no calendar year has seen more than two new Egot winners.

But that could change this year, because Television Academy voters have nominated five different people who only need an Emmy to complete their Egot — and three of them could win at the same time if “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert” takes home the award in the Outstanding Variety Special (Live) category.

Those three are John Legend, who starred in the title role of the Easter Sunday special on NBC, and Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, the composer and lyricist of the original 1970 musical.

Josh Gad and James Corden Perform Andrew Lloyd Webber Songs in London
When in London, Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals are a must. James Corden certainly got the memo when he took The Late Late Show to England this week for days of fun in his home city. Naturally, the Tonny winner could not leave without performing a version of his signature "Crosswalk the Musical" set to the work of a fellow London native and acclaimed composer. On Monday night, the late-night host revealed his troupe's latest creation—a show dedicated solely to Webber's iconic shows, including Evita, Phantom of the Opera and Cats.

Josh Gad Returns to Save James Corden’s Latest ‘Crosswalk the Musical’ (Video)
“The Late Late Show” is back in James Corden’s native London, which has some perfect intersections for a new “Crosswalk the Musical.” The one thing the city couldn’t quite provide was an appropriate Christine to Corden’s Phantom — thank God for Josh Gad.

Monday’s “Crosswalk” paid tribute to the classic works of Andrew Llyod Webber, like “Evita,” “Phantom of the Opera,” “Cats” and “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” Somehow, Corden actually roped the playwright legend into participating in this cluster-walk.

How ‘Homeland’ Star Mandy Patinkin Found Inner Peace in Showtime’s Dark CIA Drama

How ‘Homeland’ Star Mandy Patinkin Found Inner Peace in Showtime’s Dark CIA Drama
Every year, during their “Homeland” hiatus, executive producers Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, director Lesli Linka Glatter, and stars Mandy Patinkin and Claire Danes go to spy camp. Over seven seasons they’ve developed relationships with intelligence professionals, think-tank heads, and Pulitzer Prize-winning authors who fill them in on what’s going on in the government and the world, and what’s worrying them the most.

The “Homeland” team memorably interviewed the likes of Russian president Vladimir Putin and whistleblower Edward Snowden, via closed-circuit TV in Moscow. “No one’s supposed to know,” Patinkin told me. “Are you kidding? Everybody’s listening in. Moscow was probably right outside the door!”

In the penultimate Season 7 episode (filmed in Budapest for Moscow), Patinkin’s National Security Advisor Saul Berenson huddles with Dane’s Carrie Mathison and her team under a hotel-room tent to block prying ears — designed per State Department specifications. “It

Antonio Banderas (‘Genius: Picasso’): We ‘travel through life with a backpack filled with greatness and miseries’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
“I try to always not establish a morality or judgement over them and try to play them as human beings. We all are human beings who travel through life with a backpack filled with greatness and miseries. Picasso was no different even with this genius side of his persona,” reveals Antonio Banderas about playing the good and bad sides of iconic painter Pablo Picasso. He stars in the NatGeo limited series “Genius: Picasso” and discusses the project in our exclusive webchat (watch the exclusive video above). He adds, “In his private life he had a lot of controversial situations, not only just with women which is very known, but his friends and the relationship with the world in general.”

For the NatGeo program, Banderas plays the older Spanish legend while Alex Rich portrays the famous painter as a younger man. Others in these episodes include T.R. Knight, Clemence Posey, Poppy Delevingne,

Antonio Banderas movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, including ‘The Mask of Zorro,’ ‘Evita,’ ‘Philadelphia’

Banderas previously competed for Best Movie/Mini Actor for “And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself” in 2004. But of course, most of Banderas’ best known work has been in film, not television.

Tour through our photo gallery above of Banderas’ 12 greatest films, ranked from worst to best.

Banderas made his film debut over three decades ago in 1982, in Pedro Almodovar‘s “Labyrinth of Passion.” The actor would become a frequent leading man for the Spanish auteur, later appearing in such films as “Matador” (1986), “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” (1988), “Tie Me Up!
