Watch Tom vs. Pete predictions slugfest: Can ‘Game of Thrones’ actress finally win an Emmy? [Video & Audio Podcast]
“It would be a shocker if ‘Game of Thrones’ lost” the Emmy race for Best Drama Series, Pete Hammond (Deadline Hollywood) declares in our predictions slugfest. (Watch video above or hear audio podcast below.) And he’s right, of course, considering that the HBO cult hit recently snagged 10 victories at the Creative Arts Emmys last weekend.

“It’s hard to imagine that kind of momentum could be stopped once we get to the biggest category,” Pete adds. But such early juggernauts have been halted in the past, as “Boardwalk Empire” notoriously proved in 2011 when it lost Best Drama Series to “Mad Men” after sweeping eight Creative Arts Emmys, including Best Casting (which often foretells a Best Series win) and Directing.

2019 Emmy preview: ‘Game of Thrones’ will take home 3 farewell trophies on Sunday for Drama Series, Peter Dinklage, Miguel Sapochnik
Get ready for a mix of old and new when the Emmys announce their winners in the seven drama categories this Sunday, September 22. Gold Derby’s racetrack odds, which are derived from the predictions of our Experts, Editors and Users, predict a fond farewell for “Game of Thrones” in the form of three wins: Best Drama Series, Peter Dinklage for Best Drama Supporting Actor and Miguel Sapochnik for Best Drama Directing.

We know what you’re thinking — Three Emmys? That’s it? But don’t forget, HBO’s fantasy epic just scored a whopping 10 trophies at this weekend’s Creative Arts Emmy Awards, bringing its all-time total to 57 wins, more than any other narrative series in Emmy history. Three additional victories on Sunday would bring its final season tally to 13 and an overall total of 60.

Emmys 2019 slugfest: Who’s out front in the Movie/Mini lead acting races? Michelle Williams, Amy Adams, Jharrel Jerome, Jared Harris or… [Watch]
Is Michelle Williams a lock to win her first Emmy for “Fosse/Verdon”? Gold Derby contributing editor Luca Giliberti certainly thinks so. “Once ‘Fosse/Verdon’ got 17 nominations, I immediately moved her into my number one position,” he explains. It certainly helps that everyone praising the FX limited series singled out “how great she was as Gwen Verdon, and how she inhabited that role seamlessly.” Giliberti recently teamed up with fellow editors Riley Chow and myself to suss out the lead acting races in the Movie/Mini categories. Watch the full video slugfest above.

Emmy episode analysis: Laura Linney (‘Ozark’) looks for ‘One Way Out’ after she’s kidnapped by a desperate man
Laura Linney is up for Best Drama Actress for the first time at the Emmys for her role as Wendy Byrde, but she won four Emmys in other categories for all four roles she previously nominated for: Best Comedy Guest Actress for “Frasier” in 2004 and Best Movie/Mini Actress for “Wild Iris” in 2002, “John Adams” in 2008 and “The Big C: Hereafter” in 2013. The three-time Oscar nominee contends now for playing lobbyist Wendy Byrde in the second season of crime drama “Ozark” on Netflix.

Linney submitted the episode “One Way Out,” which was available on the academy website for voters to consider. In it, Wendy is kidnapped by pastor Mason Young (Michael Mosley), who uses her as leverage to get Marty (Jason Bateman) to retrieve Mason’s baby Zeke from police custody. Marty succeeds, but ends up killing Mason during a confrontation. He and Wendy clean up the crime scene and

Former Hulu content chief Joel Stillerman is partnering with Endeavor Content on a new television production company.

Flashback: See Kim Kardashian, Justin Timberlake and More at 2009 Emmys
2009 was easily a peak year for pop culture. 30 Rock won Outstanding Comedy Series for the third consecutive year, the cast of Mad Men took home two awards and Bryan Cranston won Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Walter White. It was a year when all the right and deserving shows and stars were nominated, making it tough to predict who would make an acceptance speech at the end of the night.  While the nominees and winners are, of course, the main reason for the awards, it is the red carpet that people spend days talking about. Without a doubt, the surprise attendees, the plus-ones and the fashion are easily the best part of the entire night, mostly because it is the one thing...

Emmy episode analysis: Kit Harington (‘Game of Thrones’) makes the ultimate sacrifice in ‘The Iron Throne’
Kit Harington makes a triumphant return to the Emmy race this year for the final season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” After competing in the Best Drama Supporting Actor race in 2016, Harington secured a nomination in the leading category this year for his sympathetic portrayal of Jon Snow. In hopes of scoring his first ever win for his performance, he has submitted the series finale “The Iron Throne” for consideration.

After Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) destroyed King’s Landing, Jon discovers Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) executing Lannister soldiers even though they surrendered. Jon then watches as his queen praises her army’s savagery as “liberation.” Arya (Maisie Williams) warns her brother that his true heritage and claim to the throne will result in Daenerys eventually turning on him. Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) similarly pleads with Jon to kill his love in order to save Westeros from her fury.

After being shut out at the Emmys for its first season, “Fleabag” is now the front-runner to win Best Comedy Writing for its second season premiere by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Zach Laws explains to me and our fellow Gold Derby contributor Luca Giliberti in a special slugfest that we recorded live, “This was the show that everybody was talking about and that’s going to manifest itself in some wins somewhere. Maybe it’s going to be in Comedy Actress for Phoebe Waller-Bridge; maybe it’s going to be in Comedy Series, but likely, it’s going to be in a Writing win.” Giliberti adds, “The writers’ branch loves British writers,” alluding to a penchant that has continually taken prognosticators by surprise, especially in the Best Movie/Limited Writing category, where Brits upset in 2017 (“Black Mirror”), 2014 (“Sherlock”) and 2013 (“The Hour”).

10 Great Gangster Movies To Watch If You Love The Sopranos

If Cowboys and Indians movies are called Westerns, then perhaps Cops and Mobsters movies should be called Easterns. All kidding aside, some of the best movies over the past forty years have focused on the mob, gangsters, and their dealings with life. Then David Chase gifted the world The Sopranos and reinvigorated the mob genre for TV audiences. As Tony Soprano, James Gandolfini gave a heartwarming and menacing performance, sometimes in the same scene. The rest of the cast was amazing as well, helping to propel the show to becoming one of the greatest of all time.

Game of Thrones” has already won more Emmy Awards (47 to be exact) than any other primetime series in TV history, and that number is expected to increase for its final season. According to Gold Derby’s Emmy Experts from major media outlets, one of the trophies HBO’s fantasy epic is predicted to take home on Sept. 22 is Best Drama Series. It’s already won this top category three times, so another victory would tie it with fellow four-timers and record-holders “Hill Street Blues” (1981-84), “L.A. Law”, “The West Wing” (2000-03) and “Mad Men” (2008-11).

Emmy Handicaps 2019: Actor In A Limited Series Or Movie
Always a prestigious category, actors better known for their big screen work often find a place here, and that’s the case again this year, as half the nominees are past Supporting Actor Oscar winners. In fact, one of them actually won two Academy Awards. All three have succumbed to the allure of a Limited Series rather than TV movie, and to show just how lopsided this category is, not one of the six nominees comes from a standalone movie this time around. Five are veteran actors, while one made his professional feature acting debut less than three years ago. But still, all have something in common— none of them have ever won an Emmy.

Fan Art and Fan Poster Imagines Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop in Marvel's Hawkeye

Earlier this week we learned that Marvel Studios offered Bumblebee actress Hailee Steinfeld the lead female role in in their upcoming Disney+ series Hawkeye. We still don’t know if she has taken the gig yet, but it seems like the fans would love to see her in the role, so if she does take it, she will be accepted with open arms.

I would personally love to see her in take on the role. As I’ve already said, she’s got the look, the style, and the acting chops to awesomely pull it off. Now, thanks to digital artist Mizuri, we have a piece of fan art and a fan-made poster to share with you that shows us what the actress could look like in the role.

Modern Love Trailer: Tina Fey and John Slattery Go on the Least Fun Date Ever
The course of true love never did run smooth… and in the first full trailer for Modern Love, romance repeatedly hits the rapids.

The preview video, which Amazon Prime released Thursday, gives us the first real glimpse at the half-hour series loosely based on the New York Times column and podcast of the same name. The vignettes featured in the trailer run the gamut from the surreal (at one point, a character played by The Newsroom‘s John Gallagher Jr. awkwardly discusses a sex injury with an Emt) to the serious (a character played by How I Met Your Mother
