Can John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf still earn Emmy love despite icky ‘Roseanne’ cancellation?

Can John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf still earn Emmy love despite icky ‘Roseanne’ cancellation?
When Kristin Chenoweth won an Emmy in 2009 for the cancelled ABC comedy “Pushing Daisies,” she joked, “I’m unemployed now, so I’d like to be on ‘Mad Men'” (watch below). Chenoweth’s triumph was hardly the first time someone prevailed at the Emmys for a cancelled TV show, and that’s the one potential bright spot for “Roseanne” scene-stealers John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf following the show’s shocking cancellation. However, while Goodman and Metcalf are still in the running for Emmys, might the icky demise of “Roseanne” thanks to Roseanne Barr‘s racist tweets make the entire program toxic to voters?

Goodman is no stranger to prevailing at the Emmys for cancelled shows, doing just that for “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” a decade ago. He won Best Drama Guest Actor at the 2007 ceremony after NBC turned

Will third time be the charm for Blythe Danner (‘Will & Grace’) in Best Comedy Guest Actress at the Emmy Awards?

Will third time be the charm for Blythe Danner (‘Will & Grace’) in Best Comedy Guest Actress at the Emmy Awards?
During the 2000s, Blythe Danner was an Emmy Awards darling, earning six nominations, including two victories, over just four years. Now, after more than a decade-long Emmy absence, Danner is poised for a grand return, once again in Best Comedy Guest Actress for “Will & Grace.”

Danner’s portrayal of Will (Eric McCormack)’s mom Marilyn earned her nominations in both 2005 and 2006. The actress returned in the show’s recent season finale, “It’s a Family Affair.” Much to the chagrin of her son, she is invited by Grace (Debra Messing) to move into their apartment for an extended visit. Grace’s father Martin (Robert Klein) is also staying over and, as he and Marilyn invade their kids’ lives, Will and Grace strive to come up with a plan to respectfully kick them out.

Gwen Inhat of The A.V Club praised the performances of both Danner and Klein, writing “Martin and Marilyn,

Emmy Predictions 2018: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

Emmy Predictions 2018: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series
Last Year’s Winner: Ann Dowd, “The Handmaid’s Tale”

Still Eligible: Yes.

Hot Streak: There hasn’t been a repeat winner in this category since Anna Gunn won in 2013 and 2014 for “Breaking Bad.” Before that, the last back-to-back winner was Blythe Danner for “Huff” in 2005 and 2006.

Fun Fact: For the past four years, at least one show has snagged two nominations in this category. But only one series took home the Emmy (Dowd for “The Handmaid’s Tale”).

Ann Dowd is making quite a case for another Emmy. The actress behind Aunt Lydia on Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” remains an unforgettable force in Season 2, and Dowd’s deepening of the character is second to none on television.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of competitors. Thandie Newton is rolling through the second season of “Westworld,” grappling with complex issues of identity as the one woman wrecking ball,

And they’re off! Audience Network’s ‘Mr. Mercedes’ jump-starts 2018 Emmys as first Fyc mailer out of the gate

Audience Network’s latest scripted series “Mr. Mercedes” has jump-started the TV awards season by being the first Emmy Fyc mailer out of the gate. The complete first season was sent out the TV academy membership back on February 6 in an effort to reach voters who may not subscribe to the premium network. In addition to the mailer, Audience Network has also scheduled an Fyc screening and Q&A with select cast members in Los Angeles for Sunday, April 15.

Developed by Emmy fave David E. Kelley (“Big Little Lies,” “Ally McBeal”), “Mr. Mercedes” adapts Stephen King‘s crime novel for the small screen, with Brendan Gleeson playing retired detective Bill Hodges who’s out to find the man (relative newcomer Harry Treadaway) that killed 16 people with a stolen car. Jack Bender (“Lost”) directed most of the episodes and also serves as an executive producer along with Kelley, King, Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.

TV Review: ‘Brockmire,’ Starring Hank Azaria

TV Review: ‘Brockmire,’ Starring Hank Azaria
Hank Azaria has spent his career playing some kind or another of comic relief — whether that is his well-known voice acting work on “The Simpsons” or his live-action arcs on shows like “Mad About You” and “Friends.” He has the remarkable ability to mold his voice to any number of situations and characters, some less culturally sensitive than others; it makes him a kind of chameleon of a comic actor, one where his own voice is sometimes hard to hear underneath all the impressions.

Which is why it is so fitting — and unexpectedly affecting — that Azaria plays a plaid-blazer wearing baseball announcer named Jim Brockmire, whose biggest claim to fame is an on-air meltdown he had in 2007,

Anton Yelchin (1989-2016)

This calendar year has been filled to the brim with unthinkables. The latest terribly sad happening: The talented Russian-American actor Anton Yelchin died yesterday in a freak accident at only 27 years of age. He was crushed by his own car on its steep driveway incline.

Yelchin was best known to general audiences as Chekov in the modern Star Trek franchise but to us he'll always be Byrd Huffstodt (the sensitive brainy teen in the underappreciated cable drama Huff) or awestruck poseur Ian (from the hipster vampire greatness that was Only Lovers Left Alive), and especially Jacob from the college romance drama Like Crazy (2011). Though Like Crazy was mostly heralded at the time for Felicity Jones's work as his British girlfriend, it was Yelchin that gave the movie its lovestruck foolish soul... but nuanced emotionally astute work by male actors, especially young ones, in romantic dramas are rarely given their just critical props.

Film News: Anton Yelchin, Chekov from ‘Star Trek’ Reboot, Dies at 27

Los Angeles – The loss of a up-and-coming actor at an early age is always a tragic event, and Anton Yelchin has been added to that roster. In a freak automobile accident at his home, Yelchin died on June 19th, 2016. He was best known for embracing the role of Pavel Chekov in the “Star Trek” film series reboot. He was 27 years old.

Yelchin came to Chicago in 2011 to promote his romantic drama “Like Crazy,” and his charismatic youth was confidently within his burgeoning career. At that point, at 22 years old, he had already done the “Star Trek” reboot and “Terminator: Salvation,” and was looking forward to roles in “The Beaver” and as a voice actor in the first “Smurfs” film. He was intelligent, and had a good-head-on-his-shoulders perspective regarding the sometimes crazy world of the film business.

Rip Anton Yelchin: 9 Reasons We Loved His Performances

Rip Anton Yelchin: 9 Reasons We Loved His Performances
Anton Yelchin passed away at the tragically young age of 27, at a time when many actors’ careers are just gathering momentum. But Yelchin had already amassed an impressive filmography that stretched back to his childhood, with an eclectic mixture of blockbusters, TV projects, and smaller efforts. “I’m just a huge supporter of this universe of filmmaking,” he told IndieWire in 2011. “It’s just fundamental. I can’t stress that enough.” Here, the IndieWire team shares their thoughts on why Yelchin stood out.

A Rare Screen Presence

Yelchin was the rare young actor to convey a plucky disposition while something gentler and melancholic lurked beneath the surface. As the energetic teen offspring of the troubled shrink on “Huff,” Yelchin was often the sole voice of reason in a sea of anxiety-riddled adults. While they grappled with middle-age, he was tasked with calling them on the pithy nature of their problems.

Anton Yelchin Dies in Tragic Car Accident at Age 27

I've been a fan of Anton Yelchin ever since I first saw him star alongside Anthony Hopkins in the 2001 big screen adaptation of Hearts in Atlantis. When I saw him in that film I remember saying to myself that this kid was going to be a big star. I loved him in that film, and since then I followed his career pretty closely. Everything he's done since has been top notch work.

Earlier today I learned that Yelchin had died in some kind of freak car accident, and it was a devastating blow. He was only 27 years old! He had an incredible life and career ahead of him and learning of his passing kind of hit me hard. I only met him once on a bus at the Sundance Film Festival, but he was a very nice and gracious individual.

Yelchin was a supremely talented and charismatic actor who starred

DVD Review – Stone Cold (1991)

Stone Cold, 1991.

Directed by Craig R. Baxley

Starring Brian Bosworth, William Forsythe, Sam McMurray, Richard Gant and Lance Henriksen.

Synopsis:

Joe Huff, a suspended, tough guy cop, is recruited by the FBI to infiltrate the Brotherhood, a white supremacist biker gang planning revenge after one of their crew is sentenced to life in prison, and adopts the alias John Stone to go undercover and stop them…

It’s hard to take Stone Cold at any point seriously, and you have to wonder how anyone at the time tried to either – 1991 comparatively wasn’t that long ago. There are times when you sense Craig R. Baxley’s pulp action thriller understands how silly it is, and times it occasionally gets lost in its own machismo. If you can imagine an ultra-violent, bigger budget episode of Sons of Anarchy, with the melodrama and cheesy hysteria dialled up to eleven, that’s pretty

Here's that 'Voltron' reboot from the 'The Legend of Korra' folks you didn't know you wanted
Netflix continues its foray into binge-able original programming with a remake of the classic 1980s cartoon Voltron. Now titled Dreamworks Voltron Legendary Defender, the show debuts as an hour-long special on June 10, 2016, along with ten other episodes. From the official description: Five unsuspecting teenagers, transported from Earth into the middle of a sprawling intergalactic war, become pilots for five robotic lions in the battle to protect the universe from evil. Only through the true power of teamwork can they unite to form the mighty warrior known as Voltron. And now there’s a comedy-filled trailer. This looks like a lot of fun! If the animation style looks familiar, it’s because both Joaquim Dos Santos (Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra) and Lauren Montgomery (The Legend of Korra) are on-board as executive producers. The new Voltron features the voice talents of Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) as Keith, Jeremy Shada (Adventure Time) as Lance,
