Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie

Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie
Last Year’s Winner: Regina King, “Seven Seconds

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: Helen Mirren is the only actress to win consecutive trophies in the Best Actress in a Limited Series category, and even though she’s been nominated six times for playing Detective Jane Tennison in “Prime Suspect” (and won twice), she won her back-to-back trophies for two different programs. She won in 2006 for HBO’s “Elizabeth I” and then again in 2007 for “Prime Suspect: The Final Act.”

Fun Fact: Helen Mirren has the most wins (four) and the most nominations (10) in the category’s history, but it’s worth noting she’s only ever been nominated in this Emmy category — save for in 2002, when she was nominated for Best Actress in a Limited Series and Best Supporting Actress in a Limited series, for “The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone” and “Door to Door,” respectively.

Regina King (‘Beale Street’ & ‘Seven Seconds’) could join elite club of actors to win 2 Golden Globes in 1 night

Regina King (‘Beale Street’ & ‘Seven Seconds’) could join elite club of actors to win 2 Golden Globes in 1 night
Fresh off her Emmy win for “Seven Seconds” as grieving mother Latrice Butler, Regina King finds herself in the enviable position of earning Oscar buzz for her performance in “If Beale Street Could Talk.” Both performances will be eligible at the upcoming Golden Globes where she could very well become just the fifth actor in Golden Globes history to win two awards in one night. The actress has only been nominated once at the Golden Globes before, and considering how much the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) loves rewarding “new” people every year, she’s in a good position to win at least one by the end of the night.

Helen Mirren movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Queen,’ ‘Gosford Park,’ ‘Red’
It’s not uncommon for a prominent British actor to be labeled British acting royalty. All types, from Laurence Olivier to Maggie Smith, have worn the label but nobody perhaps has literally worn that title recently to the extent as Helen Mirren. She has had a long varied career and has earned her place as one of the holders of acting’s triple crowns by playing a variety of British monarchs.

Her Oscar came for playing the British Queen Elizabeth II in “The Queen,” which dealt with her reaction to the unexpected death of Princess Diana. She would revisit the role nine years later for a Tony on Broadway in the play “The Audience,” which dealt with Elizabeth’s relationships with the various prime ministers who have served under her. It was a different Queen, Elizabeth I, that would bring Mirren one of her four Emmys, when she starred in

The 50 top films of 2017 in the Us: No 6 The Post

Our countdown of the year’s best continues with the Washington Post going into battle over the Vietnam war in Steven Spielberg’s exhilarating drama

Steven Spielberg brings his massive prestige to bear on the issue of fake news and real values in journalism and politics with this handsome, heartfelt picture about the Washington Post and its battle to publish the Pentagon papers in 1971.

It’s a movie that draws on a spirit of Capraesque romantic decency, combined with the toughness and resolution on display in Alan J Pakula’s All the President’s Men: a world of chain-smoking, shirtsleeved newsmen who were given weeks and months to work on an important story. Tom Hanks plays the paper’s battle-hardened editor and liberal lion Ben Bradlee, and Meryl Streep plays the proprietor and Georgetown social queen Kay Graham, a woman at first daunted by the responsibility of running a newspaper

Why Margot Robbie Only Wears Her Wedding Ring on the Weekends

Why Margot Robbie Only Wears Her Wedding Ring on the Weekends
Margot Robbie loves her wedding ring so much that she only wears it two days out of the week.

The 27-year-old actress's first wedding anniversary with husband Tom Ackerley is coming up, but as she told Vogue Australia, she wears her wedding ring less and less.

"That’s the thing, we were best friends and roommates before and now we’re like best friends and roommates still, so nothing’s really changed at all,” Margot said while looking down at her wedding ring. “Other than the fact that I get to wear this on the weekends."

"I can’t obviously wear it during the week when I’m working," she explained. "I don’t want to lose it on set.”

Robbie and Ackerley, who met in 2013 on the set of Suite Francaise, married in December 2016, in a top secret wedding in Byron Bay, Australia. The actress has remained pretty private about her personal life, but confirmed her nuptials

But Dench already had some practice with this particular monarch: she also played Queen Victoria in the 1997 film Mrs. Brown, for which she snagged both an Academy Award nomination and a Golden Globe win.
