Emmy episode analysis: Maya Rudolph (‘The Good Place’) judges your immortal soul in ‘The Burrito’

Emmy episode analysis: Maya Rudolph (‘The Good Place’) judges your immortal soul in ‘The Burrito’
Maya Rudolph earned her second Emmy nomination this year: Best Comedy Guest Actress for her guest spot on “The Good Place.” The “Saturday Night Live” alum’s first nomination came in this same category in 2012 when she returned to host that sketch series. This nomination, along with Ted Danson‘s bid for Best Comedy Actor, helped put the critically acclaimed comedy on the map with the TV academy, after the show was snubbed entirely for its first season.

Rudolph’s role in “The Good Place” is certainly one of the most unique among this year’s Emmy nominees. The actress plays the almighty Judge Gen, a supernatural being who decides more difficult cases when it comes to who should be in The Good Place or in The Bad Place.

In Rudolph’s submission, “The Burrito,” Judge Gen is surprised to see our merry band of heroes show up to plead

Will ‘Atlanta’ be first show in 19 years to win Best Comedy Series Emmy for Season 2 after losing for Season 1?

Will ‘Atlanta’ be first show in 19 years to win Best Comedy Series Emmy for Season 2 after losing for Season 1?
It’s been a whopping 19 years since a show won Best Comedy Series at the Emmys for its second season after losing for its first. That show was “Ally McBeal” (1999), which prevailed for Season 2 after being bested for Season 1 by “Frasier,” which was finishing off a five-year run in the winner’s circle (1994-98). Will FX’s rap comedy “Atlanta” be the next to accomplish this rare feat? “Atlanta” lost Best Comedy Series last year to “Veep,” which three-peated in this category from 2015 to 2017. Because “Veep” didn’t air any new episodes during this eligibility cycle, that opens up the door for something new to claim Emmy gold.

Emmys: Acting Categories Show Diversity, if Not Parity

Even in the middle of Hollywood’s big diversity push, it was still startling to see a significant amount of it across all acting categories this year. There are 36 non-white acting nominees this year — a solid 20% jump from last year, when there were 30.

Drill down deeper and it becomes clear that this year’s more inclusive slate is thanks to the supporting and guest categories in particular. Just take a look at limited series, where FX’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” earned noms for Penelope Cruz, Edgar Ramirez and Ricky Martin. Or comedy, where “Atlanta” co-stars

They write the songs: Darren Criss, Aidy Bryant and Kenan Thompson were Emmy nominees for music before acting

They write the songs: Darren Criss, Aidy Bryant and Kenan Thompson were Emmy nominees for music before acting
Darren Criss (“The Assassination of Gianni Versace”), Aidy Bryant (“Saturday Night Live”) and Kenan Thompson (“SNL”) earned their first Emmy nominations for acting this year, but these aren’t their first nominations overall. All three of them recently contended for songwriting. And they’re far from the only ones who have crossed the threshold between music and other fields at the Emmys. Far from it.

Criss rose to fame as an actor on “Glee” before earning his first acting nomination, Best Movie/Mini Actor for playing killer Andrew Cunanan in the limited series “The Assassination of Gianni Versace.” But “Glee” is what brought him his very first Emmy recognition. He earned a nom for Best Music and Lyrics in 2015 for writing the song “This Time” from the series finale episode “Dreams Come True.” But he lost that prize to Kyle Dunnigan and Jim Roach, who wrote “Girl You Don’t

Bryan Cranston hints that Walter White is still alive in the ‘Breaking Bad’ universe: ‘Was there a coroner’s report?’

Bryan Cranston hints that Walter White is still alive in the ‘Breaking Bad’ universe: ‘Was there a coroner’s report?’
To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the “Breaking Bad” premiere, producer/star Bryan Cranston joined creator Vince Gilligan and cast members Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, Rj Mitte, Bob Odenkirk and Giancarlo Esposito on the July 18 episode of “Conan” filmed at San Diego Comic-Con. During the interview Cranston hinted that his character Walter White, who apparently died in the 2013 series finale after transforming from a high school chemistry teacher to a criminal drug lord, is still alive in the “Breaking Bad” universe.

“Maybe Walter White did get away with it,” Cranston told talk show host Conan O’Brien after Gilligan said that his mother was upset with the ending. “Was there a coroner’s report? No. Was there a listing in the obituaries? No.” O’Brien’s co-host Andy Richter then joked, “It sounds like Cranston needs work!”

HBO’s Emmy domination of Best Comedy Series continues in 2018 with ‘Barry,’ ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm,’ ‘Silicon Valley’

You have to go all the way back to 2011 to find a year where HBO was snubbed at the Emmys for Best Comedy Series. In fact, for the seventh year in row the premiere network has claimed more than one slot in the category, this time for freshman series “Barry,” returning favorite “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and perennial nominee “Silicon Valley.” Can any of them carry the torch for three-time champ “Veep,” which is sitting out the 2018 Emmys because it didn’t air any new episodes?

See 2018 Emmy nominations complete list: All the nominees for the 70th Emmy Awards

The newest comedy on HBO’s block is “Barry,” about a hitman (Bill Hader) who wants to be an actor, which over-performed with 13 Emmy nominations. The show’s above-the-line bids are for Best Comedy Series, Best Comedy Actor for Hader, Best Comedy Supporting Actor for Henry Winkler, Best Comedy Directing for Hader,

Emmy episode analysis: Katt Williams (‘Atlanta’) earns first nomination as the man with the golden gun in ‘Alligator Man’
Stand-up comedian and musician Katt Williams is nominated for his first ever Emmy: Best Comedy Guest Actor in “Atlanta.” Williams appears in the season two premiere episode “Alligator Man” as Earn’s (Donald Glover) uncle Willie who has gotten himself into a bit of a domestic dispute much to his nephew’s chagrin. Williams’s nomination is one of nine major noms for the series, including three others in the acting fields, two for writing, two for directing, and one for Best Comedy Series.

In “Alligator Man,” Williams’s character sets the tone for the entire season and delivers one of the show’s most comedic turns. Over the course of the episode Willie antagonizes Earn, who has arrived to prevent the police from getting involved to the point of frustration. But in the end Willie provides Earn with much-needed wisdom about learning from mistakes, and he also bequeaths to

70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Nominations Analysis!

I’ve had a weird feeling about television lately, at least going into this year’s Emmy nominations. Not sure entirely why, but I’ve had this growing sense that it’s mostly been an overall, odd year. It’s almost like it’s an off-year election, it’s critically important and major we’re not quite betting on the biggest players or names so it doesn’t seem like it’s major. That said, it is actually a big year, there’s a lot of shows that are off, but a lot that came back. And it’s not that clear whether the biggest show around or the newest show is the one that’s still as big as they used to be. I’ve watched more television at this point than I normally have, so I’m more interested than I have been in the past, but I

Emmy episode analysis: Lin-Manuel Miranda (‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’) is at odds with Larry David in ‘Fatwa!’

Lin Manuel-Miranda has earned his third career Emmy nomination: Best Comedy Guest Actor for portraying himself on HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” The honor marks a return to the category for Miranda, who garnered a nomination just last year for hosting “Saturday Night Live.” Before that Miranda and composer Tom Kitt took home the Emmy for Best Music and Lyrics in 2014 for the song “Bigger!” from the 67th Annual Tony Awards telecast. Miranda, an awards darling in recent years, has also won a Pulitzer Prize, three Tony Awards and three Grammy Awards.

Miranda graced two episodes of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” this season — “The Shucker” and “Fatwa!” — and has submitted the latter appearance for consideration. The episode finds Lin and Larry David constantly clashing during rehearsals for their new musical “Fatwa!” Their creative differences over the production, such as Lin’s opposition to including a song Larry desires and Larry’s

Showbiz shows dominate the Emmy race for Best Comedy Series, but can they repeat the success of ’30 Rock’?

Showbiz shows dominate the Emmy race for Best Comedy Series, but can they repeat the success of ’30 Rock’?
The old saying goes, write what you know. That’s probably why so many people in Hollywood end up writing stories about people in Hollywood. Nowhere is that more true than in this year’s Emmy race for Best Comedy Series, where five of the eight nominees are about the entertainment business. But only one such show has won in the 21st century so far: “30 Rock,” which prevailed for three years in a row (2007-2009). Can one of this year’s contenders bring the Emmy back to Hollywood? (See the complete list of nominees here.)

The most nominated series of the year is FX’s sophomore comedy “Atlanta” with 16 bids. It follows a down-on-his-luck music manager (Best Comedy Actor nominee Donald Glover) struggling to guide his cousin Paper Boi (Best Comedy Supporting Actor nominee Brian Tyree Henry) through his burgeoning rap career.

Right behind “Atlanta” with 14 nominations is Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

What the fudge? ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ just made Emmys history in the shortest of ways

Does size matter? Apparently not where Emmy is concerned. Netflix’s “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” just made history at the 2018 Emmys for tying the shortest season ever nominated for Best Comedy Series. At only six episodes, “Kimmy” Season 4 now matches the previous record set by “Kate & Allie” Season 1 in 1984 and “The Wonder Years” Season 1 in 1988. In recent years, eight episodes was the smallest number for shows like “Veep” Season 1 in 2012, “Silicon Valley” Season 1 in 2014 and “Louie” Season 5 in 2015.

Of course, this season of “Kimmy” wasn’t designed to only be six half-hours. Since showrunner Tina Fey was busy producing her Tony-nominated Broadway musical “Mean Girls,” production on this fourth and final season was delayed. Netflix decided to premiere the first six episodes at the tail-end of the Emmy eligibility cycle so that they wouldn’t miss out
