‘Anne With an E’ Boss Answers Burning Questions About the Queer Soirée, Season 3, and More

‘Anne With an E’ Boss Answers Burning Questions About the Queer Soirée, Season 3, and More
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers for “Anne With an E” Season 2, including the finale “The Growing Good of the World.”]

The character of Great Aunt Josephine Barry in the “Anne of Green Gables” books has always been a fan favorite because she seemed to truly understand and encourage the unique aspects of the orphan that transformed the lives of those in Avonlea. In Netflix’s adaptation “Anne With an E,” it’s revealed that her perception and empathy comes from her own personal struggles: Aunt Josephine (Deborah Grover) is gay.

Series creator Moira Walley-Beckett spoke to IndieWire about adding this extra dimension to the beloved literary character, as well as more realistic touches for Canada in the Edwardian period, and what she’s eyeing for Anne Shirley Cuthbert (Amybeth McNulty) in Season 3.

“Upon reading [the novel] again as an adult, I was wondering about Aunt Jo,” said Walley-Beckett. “In the book, she’s a spinster and she’s

‘Better Call Saul’ Season 4: Cast and Producers Explain Why They Didn’t Rush Production to Be at the Emmys This Year

‘Better Call Saul’ Season 4: Cast and Producers Explain Why They Didn’t Rush Production to Be at the Emmys This Year
The Emmys are sometimes referred to as primetime’s biggest party, but this year one of TV’s most acclaimed dramas is sitting it out. And everyone involved seems fine about it.

From 2015 to 2017, “Better Call Saul” has been a major contender in the awards race, building upon its pedigree as the prequel to frequent winner “Breaking Bad.” This year, that’s not the case, though it has nothing to do with a lack in the show’s quality — instead, it simply comes down to the calendar.

In order to be eligible for the 2018 Emmys, “Saul” needed to premiere at least half of Season 4 before May 31, — but the show doesn’t actually return until August 6. “We just have to make the show the best we can make it,” producer Melissa Bernstein told IndieWire. “We can’t retrofit it to an awards schedule.”

In fact, Bernstein said, co-creator Vince Gilligan doesn

Blueprints: Emmy Nominees for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series

Full swing into Emmy season! Jorge looks at drama series first...

Icymi: the nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Let’s take a look at the six shows that made the cut for Writing in a Drama Series. As in the Directing categories, writing categories highlight individual episodes rather than overall series, which makes it not uncommon for one show to have multiple nominations. However once "Breaking Bad" and "Mad Men" were off the air, this category has not had any doubling up! This year every slot once again went to a different show, from newcomers, to established favorites, to people in their last round of eligibility.

Nayanthara’s 'Kolamavu Kokila' release date announced

KollywoodThe film is going to be her second release of the year.Digital NativeNayanthara, whose films Aramm, Dora, and Velaikkaran were well received last year, is gearing up for the release of upcoming Tamil thriller Kolamavu Kokila a.k.a Co Co. Directed by debutant Nelson Dilip Kumar, the film is going to be her second release of the year. In the film, she plays a simple girl who, when pushed into an unexpected situation, has to fight for her own for survival. On Thursday, the makers via announced a poster that the film will hit the screens on August 10 worldwide. This means that Nayanthara and Kamal Haasan, whose Vishwaroopam 2 is also confirmed to release on the same date, will lock horns at the box-office. The film is rumoured to be inspired from the popular American show Breaking Bad. Apparently, Kolamavu is the colloquial word used in the film for cocaine. It’s also evident from the title poster of the film that the story does deal about drugs. Clarifying these reports, Nelson said in an interview to Hindustan Times that his film is his own work of fiction. “It’s a story about an ordinary girl in the most unexpected situation and how she fights her way out of it. We can’t make anything close to Breaking Bad because it’s really wild and we’re not prepared for such things.” The film also stars Saranya Ponvannan and Yogi Babu in important roles. The film has music by Anirudh Ravichander and recently there were reports that the young composer has played a cameo in the film. However, director Nelson subsequently quashed these reports in a few interviews. He went on to add that Anirudh’s music is the soul of the film. “As soon as Anirudh heard the story, he was excited to commence work. He’s taken very special care and worked on the film because he really liked the story,” he said. (Content provided by Digital Native)

A Long, Chaotic Emmys Season Ends With Voters Finding a Decent Compromise

A Long, Chaotic Emmys Season Ends With Voters Finding a Decent Compromise
Game of Thrones” returned with a vengeance, “Modern Family” finally missed the cut and voters from the Television Academy set a new record for non-white Emmys acting nominees for the third year in a row.

Surveying a vast and confusing television lineup that gets bigger and wilder with each new year, voters relied heavily on old favorites – it wouldn’t be the Emmys if they didn’t – but also found room for new shows and didn’t shy away from new platforms.

The results felt like a decent compromise: A little of this, a little of that and a lot of pretty good TV.

Will ‘The Americans’ earn a farewell salute at Emmys just like ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘The Sopranos’?

FX’s “The Americans” went out with a bang this spring, drawing rave reviews for its final season. Will the Emmy Awards now give the acclaimed spy drama a farewell salute in terms of a victory for Best Drama Series? Throughout Emmy history we’ve seen various examples of voters giving hugs to departing shows, but only three dramas walked off with the top series award for their final season: “Breaking Bad” (2014), “The Sopranos” (2007) and “Upstairs, Downstairs” (1977).

Exclusive: Holly Hunter, Brad Bird and producers John Walker and Nicole Grindle on revisiting our favourite family in The Incredibles 2

Pixar don’t really do bad sequels. I mean, we’re not counting Cars because sometimes it’s best to just forget – but follow up features to the likes of Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Monsters, Inc. have all been hugely successful, and thoroughly enjoyable endeavours. The Incredibles 2 now joins that list – and when we interviewed Holly Hunter, who reprises her role as Elastigirl, she explained that she had faith that the studio wouldn’t disappoint.

We also met the brains behind the whole project Brad Bird, who was sat alongside producers John Walker and Nicole Grindle, as we discussed how this whole project came into fruition. They also tell us the story of how, and why the supervillain in the movie changed during the course of production.

We ask Hunter what it’s like for her kids to know their mother is a superhero, and what makes this family so appealing to audiences.

Bryan Cranston Reveals His Favorite Walter White Line from ‘Breaking Bad,’ and It’s Not ‘I Am the One Who Knocks’

Bryan Cranston Reveals His Favorite Walter White Line from ‘Breaking Bad,’ and It’s Not ‘I Am the One Who Knocks’
There are iconic Walter White lines every “Breaking Bad” fan can quote by heart, from “I am the one who knocks” to “say my name” and “I did it for me,” but none of those are Bryan Cranston’s favorite line from playing White across five seasons and 62 episodes. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly in celebration of the “Breaking Bad” pilot’s 10th anniversary, Cranston made a surprise choice for his favorite Walter White line in history: “Tread lightly.”

The two words are uttered by White in “Blood Money,” the ninth episode of the show’s fifth and final season. DEA agent Hank (Dean Norris) has discovered that brother-in-law White is the drug lord he has been chasing for two years. Hank tells White he doesn’t know who White is anymore, to which White replies, “If that’s true, if you don’t know who I am, then maybe your

‘Breaking Bad': Bryan Cranston’s Favorite Walter White Line Is Not What You’d Expect at All

‘Breaking Bad': Bryan Cranston’s Favorite Walter White Line Is Not What You’d Expect at All
When you think of Walter White’s best quotes, so many of them immediately come to mind that it’s hard to choose the all-time best one-liner: “I am not in danger, I am the danger…. I am the one who knocks… Say my name… Stay out of my territory… I’m in the empire business… We’re done when I say we’re done… F— you and your eyebrows… I did it for me…”

So which of those is his real-life alter ego, Bryan Cranston’s, favorite Walt-ism? None of them. It’s actually, “Tread lightly.” We know, kind of underwhelming. But he has reasons, one them being it makes it easy to sign an autograph.

“First of all, it’s only two words so I go through it quickly,” Cranston told Entertainment Weekly in a group interview with his fellow co-stars in honor of the AMC series’ 10th anniversary.
