Emmy Predictions: Will Sterling K. Brown Prevail Again Or Is Upset Looming In Drama Series Actor Race?
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series

It’s co-star versus co-star in the Lead Actor race this time around, as Westworld’s Jeffrey Wright and Ed Harris battle for the gold, while This Is Us stars Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia face off again for the second year running. Brown won that round in 2017—but will Ventimiglia prevail in the rematch? The category also sees the return of Matthew Rhys of The Americans, which is looking at its final chance for glory this year, and making his debut in the category is Jason Bateman, who also has a directing nomination for first year Netflix series Ozark.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge (‘Killing Eve’) aiming to be sixth solo woman to win Best Drama Writing Emmy

Phoebe Waller-Bridge (‘Killing Eve’) aiming to be sixth solo woman to win Best Drama Writing Emmy
Phoebe Waller-Bridges (“Killing Eve”) is the only female nominee in the Best Drama Writing Emmy field of six. And “six” will also be associated with her should she win because only five other solo women have won the category before.

Since Best Drama Writing was added at the 7th Primetime Emmys in 1955, undergoing various name changes, the category has almost exclusively been a boys’ club. It took 19 years before Joanna Lee became the first individual woman to win, prevailing for “The Waltons.” In 1979, Michele Gallery (“Lou Grant”) joined her, followed by Patricia Green (“Cagney & Lacey”) and Ann Biderman (“NYPD Blue”) in 1994. Twenty long years later, Moira Walley-Beckett ended the drought with a statuette for penning “Ozymandias,” the best episode of “Breaking Bad.”

There were female winners in between Biderman’s and Walley-Beckett’s triumphs, but they all co-wrote their winning scripts with men. Robin Green (“The Sopranos”) shared her 2001 win with Mitchell Burgess,

‘Ozark’ Season 2 Review: Family Matters in the Netflix Drama’s Unrelenting New Season

Ever since The Sopranos, Mad Men, and Breaking Bad set the high bar for exciting new avenues of television storytelling, a bevy of TV shows about “bad men” have come our way. Some of these shows misunderstand what made these iconic series so compelling in the first place, while others use the creative freedom of the TV medium to use moral ambiguity as a jumping off point. The Netflix series Ozark falls into the latter category, and while the first season was a bit too stuck in Breaking Bad’s shadow to truly stand apart as its own towering achievement, …

Here's Exactly When Shameless Season 9 Drops
The Emmy-nominated Showtime series Shameless has been renewed for a ninth season, and we now know exactly when to drop everything to catch the first episode. During the Television Critics Association Summer press tour, the cable network announced the premiere date: Sunday, Sept. 9. Even better? The new season is set to feature two extra episodes. That means we get to watch the perpetually down-on-their-luck but super-scrappy Gallaghers fall apart and come back together again for a total of 14 episodes. There is one catch though: the season is split into two sets of air dates. According to TV Line, seven episodes will air, followed by a short break, and then seven more episodes drop starting January 20, 2019.

Showtime released a trailer for the upcoming season that teases more desperate times ahead for the Gallaghers. But here's a fun tidbit: fiesty Fiona, played by Emmy Rossum, is still seeing Ford, a hot handyman who,

‘The Romanoffs’ Trailer: Everyone Is Descended from Russian Royalty

Amazon has released a new The Romanoffs trailer. The new series from Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner is anthology of eight separate stories, each with a different cast and different location, but tied together by characters who believe they’re descended from the Russian royal line of the Romanoffs. Judging by the trailer, the series will definitely woo die-hard Mad Men fans based on Weiner’s name alone, but the tone here is surprisingly silly and almost a little frivolous. I’m not sure what the dramatic stakes of this anthology is supposed to be other than you have …
