Tony Hale could be the 6th 3-time Best Comedy Supporting Actor Emmy champ

Tony Hale could be the 6th 3-time Best Comedy Supporting Actor Emmy champ
Tony Hale is one of three people to have won two Best Comedy Supporting Actor Emmy Awards this decade, the others being “Modern Family” stars Eric Stonestreet and Ty Burrell. If he wins again for the seventh and final season of “Veep,” he’d join an elite group of three-time champs in the category.

Only five people have won exactly three comedy supporting actor Emmys: Art Carney, Ed Asner, Michael Richards, Brad Garrett and Jeremy Piven.

Three is not the record number of wins in the category though. Don Knotts triumphed five times for “The Andy Griffith Show,” while David Hyde Pierce (“Frasier”) and John Larroquette (“Night Court”) have four victories each.

DJ Quik Joins Terry Crews and Ludacris Film ‘John Henry’ as Composer, Executive Producer

  • Variety
Hip-hop artist and producer DJ Quik is the latest star to become involved in the forthcoming indie movie “John Henry” with Terry Crews and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges. The rapper will produce an original soundtrack for the feature film and also serve as executive producer.

But when he crosses paths with two immigrant kids who are running from the leader of his former gang, he’s forced to confront the violence of his past life in hopes of saving them.

Henry Winkler could end this 11-year drought in the comedy supporting Emmy category

Henry Winkler could end this 11-year drought in the comedy supporting Emmy category
Henry Winkler waited more than 40 years before taking home his first Emmy last year and he could very well claim his second straight statuette in September for “Barry.” If that happens, he’d be the first Best Comedy Supporting Actor champ to defend his crown in 11 years.

Jeremy Piven was the last person to snag consecutive awards in this category, having claimed three in a row for “Entourage” from 2006-08. Since then, three people have won multiple Best Comedy Supporting Actor Emmys, but they were not consecutive: Eric Stonestreet (“Modern Family”) won in 2010 and ’12; his co-star Ty Burrell prevailed in 2011 and ’14; and “Veep” star Tony Hale sandwiched Burrell’s second win with victories in 2013 and ’15.

Everyone else in the time period were one-offs: Jon Cryer, Louie Anderson and Alec Baldwin.

Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series
Last Year’s Winner: Henry Winkler, “Barry”

Still Eligible: Yes.

Hot Streak: Unlike the women’s category, the Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy race hasn’t seen a repeat winner in over a decade. The last performer to take home back-to-back Emmys here was Jeremy Piven for “Entourage” in 2007 – 2008 (whereas even one win seems unimaginable today). “Modern Family” won three consecutive years, but the chosen victor rotated between Ty Burrell and Eric Stonestreet, while Tony Hale took home two trophies for “Veep,” but his streak was interrupted by Burrell winning again for “Modern Family.”

Fun Fact: “M*A*S*H” has more nominations than any other program with 21, but it only has two wins — Harry Morgan in 1980 and Gary Burghoff in 1977. If “Modern Family” can squeak out two more nods, it will tie the record (but the ABC comedy got blanked in 2018). “Veep” and “Will & Grace” are the

Younger Season 6 Will Air on TV Land; Move to Paramount Network Cancelled
Younger just dropped the first big twist of its upcoming sixth season: Despite previously announced plans to relocate the Darren Star dramedy to Paramount Network, it will instead remain at TV Land, our sister site Deadline reports.

Until Younger returns, TV Land will be without any original scripted programming.

I Need to Get This Off My Chest: Seth Cohen Was the Worst Character on The O.C.

Please bear with me, because I'm going where no '90s baby has gone before. It's uncharted territory and quite possibly the most jarring position of devil's advocate that's ever been played, but I'm about to tell you why Seth Cohen was the f*cking worst on The O.C. If you don't want to ruin your perception of the so-called nice boy of Newport, I don't recommend reading further. But if you're ready to see the characters of your favorite early 2000s show in a whole new light, buckle up and enjoy the ride.

I recently found myself with some time on my hands. Game of Thrones is taking its sweet time to return for season eight, and there's only so many times I can rewatch Curb Your Enthusiasm and Entourage episodes, so I decided to binge all four seasons of The O.C. on Hulu.

‘This Is Us’ Star Mandy Moore on Why She Is ‘Operating at My Best Now’
This Is Us” star Mandy Moore successfully transitioned from a teenage pop star to an adult who juggles singing, acting and, soon enough, producing professionally. On March 25 she is being celebrated for her achievements with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, an honor she calls “tremendously humbling.”

“I feel like I’m operating at my best now. I know what I want; I know how to ask for it; I know how to not settle until I get that,” Moore says. “I’m better at stepping up to the plate and acknowledging the value I bring to the plate. I guess that just only comes with the wisdom and clarity of time and age.”

The singer-turned-actress got her first taste of fame at the turn of the century when her debut single “Candy” hit the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Two years later she was dipping her toes in acting

James Cameron Says He Liked Aquaman But Explains That it Was Very Unrealistic

It’s no secret that James Cameron loves the ocean and everything that dwells in it. This has been made apparent in the films and documentaries that he has made over the years. He also kind of has a connection with Aquaman as he was the guy who directed the movie in the HBO series Entourage.

During an recent interview with Yahoo, the filmmaker was asked what he thought about James Wan’s Aquaman. While he liked and appreciated what the film did and how it touched on actual ecosystems, he also explained that the underwater physics were very unrealistic.

“I think its great fun. I never could have made that film, because it requires this kind of total dreamlike disconnection from any sense of physics or reality. People just kind of zoom around underwater, because they propel themselves mentally, I guess, I don’t know. But it’s cool!

James Cameron Has Very Mixed Feelings About Aquaman

James Cameron Has Very Mixed Feelings About Aquaman
In an alternate universe somewhere in the cosmos, James Cameron directed the Aquaman movie. This was depicted in the HBO series Entourage, where the director played himself, creating one of the highest grossing superhero movies of all time. Cameron never really thought about actually directing Aquaman, but he came close to helming the first live-action Spider-Man. Though he hasn't made a superhero movie yet, his ties run deep in the genre. So with DC Films finally making a living, breathing Aquaman movie that turned out to be an even bigger hit than the fictional one starring Vinny Chase, Cameron is now throwing in his two cents. And he can't help but bash the movie just a little as he tries to throw some praise its way.

James Cameron is out promoting his new film Alita: Battle Angel. It's a passion project that he ended up producing instead of directing because
