A Warning for Broadcast TV: When There Are Too Many Shows to Watch, Generic Titles Like ‘Deception’ Just Don’t Cut It

  • Indiewire
ABC just premiered its latest twist on the cop procedural format — a pretty fun show starring Jack Cutmore-Scott as Cameron Black, a stage magician who decides to use his talents to help the FBI solve crimes while also investigating a mystery of his own.

A magician doing illusions to solve crime is a fresh twist on the genre, Cutmore-Scott is a charming lead, the supporting cast is fantastic, and the magic seen in the pilot is really cool. But what’s this show titled? “Deception.”

That’s right, “Deception” — not to be mistaken for the 1946 film starring Bette Davis and Claude Reine, the 2008 film starring Ewan McGregor and Hugh Jackman, the 2013 NBC series about a lady detective investigating her childhood best friend’s murder, or countless other low-budget films over the years. “Deception” is a one-word title so generic and bland that by the end of this sentence, you’ll

Reflecting on Meryl Streep’s record 21 Oscar nominations and celebrating her 3 wins (to date)

Reflecting on Meryl Streep’s record 21 Oscar nominations and celebrating her 3 wins (to date)
Over the past month, the Gold Derby series Meryl Streep at the Oscars has looked back at Meryl Streep’s 21 Oscar nominations, including her 2018 bid for “The Post.” We have considered the performances that competed with her, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

For a film buff and awards season aficionado, there is perhaps no more exhilarating a journey than going back to revisit all 21 Streep performances that brought her to the Oscars, plus her competition over the years – a grand total of 105 performances, most richly deserving of their recognition.

While Streep has three Academy Awards — for “Kramer vs. Kramer” (1979), “Sophie’s Choice” (1982) and “The Iron Lady” (2011) — a case could surely be made that she has deserved even more. She is at her career-best in “The Bridges of Madison County” (1995) and, if not for the juggernaut that was Shirley MacLaine in “Terms of Endearment

Meryl Streep (‘The Post’) loses at Oscars for 18th time, crushing her own record

Meryl Streep (‘The Post’) loses at Oscars for 18th time, crushing her own record
Over the past four decades Meryl Streep has amassed 21 Oscar nominations, more than any performer in Academy Awards history. She won three of those races, making her a member of the exclusive three-timers club of which there are only two other living members: Daniel Day-Lewis and Jack Nicholson. However, there’s a unique downside to Queen Meryl’s Oscar reign. After losing Best Actress for “The Post” Sunday night to Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Streep now has 18 Oscar failures on her hands, extending her record as the biggest acting loser of all time.

Streep’s losses straddle 39 years, including 15 as Best Actress and 3 as Best Supporting Actress. Her first loss for “The Deer Hunter” (1978) happened four decades ago, setting the stage for a remarkable Oscar trajectory full of a few ups and many, many downs.

Meryl Streep in ‘Doubt’: A look back at her 15th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome

Meryl Streep in ‘Doubt’: A look back at her 15th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome
This article marks Part 15 of the 21-part Gold Derby series analyzing Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her at the Academy Awards, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

On the heels of the spectacular box office success of “The Devil Wears Prada” (2006), Meryl Streep was more a household name than ever. Even teens and twentysomethings who weren’t terribly familiar with Streep’s body of work could now instantly identify the actress who made Miranda Priestly a big screen icon. She quickly hopped aboard three projects for 2007, all of which screamed ‘Oscar contender’ on paper and unfortunately, all of which underperformed upon release.

First, there was “Evening,” a supremely sleepy drama which, despite the presence of heavyweights including Streep, Glenn Close, Claire Danes and Vanessa Redgrave, failed to leave

Meryl Streep movies: 25 greatest films ranked from worst to best
Is Meryl Streep the greatest film performer of all time? According to Oscar voters over the past 40 years, that might just be the case with her record shattering 21 nominations and 3 wins.

Hot on the Heels of Meghan Markle's Departure, Katherine Heigl Is Joining Suits

  • BuzzSugar
After confirming the departure of both Meghan Markle and Patrick J. Adams from Suits, USA Network is now teasing us with news of an exciting new addition for season 8. Variety reports that Katherine Heigl will join the cast as Samantha Wheeler, a new partner at Pearson Specter Litt.

12 Transgender Actors Who Played Transgender Roles, From ‘A Fantastic Woman’ to ‘Queen Sugar’

12 Transgender Actors Who Played Transgender Roles, From ‘A Fantastic Woman’ to ‘Queen Sugar’
So far, the big breakthroughs have all been on the younger end of the spectrum: the first transgender winner of an Indie Spirit award for acting arrived in 2015, the first transgender person to be nominated for an acting-centric Primetime Emmy dates back to 2014, and there’s still never been a transgender actor nominated for an Oscars. For many of them, getting any kind of role in Hollywood is worth celebrating, but it’s rarer still for them to lock down a seemingly obvious next step: getting cast as a transgender person.

Few trans-centric stories have made it to the screen over the years, and the vast majority of them have seen pivotal roles go to cisgender actors, from Elle Fanning to Matt Bomer, Eddie Redmayne to Hilary Swank. The tide, however, is starting to turn. Here are a dozen talented transgender actors who have also played transgender roles on the screen,

Grey's Anatomy: Here's That Song That Just Demolished All Your Emotions

  • BuzzSugar
This week's episode of Grey's Anatomy has a lot of twists and turns, but also a voice that we may recognize. An angelic single by up-and-coming artist Nilu plays during the dramatic climax of Wilson donating her abusive ex-husband's organs while his ex-fiancée watches, Bailey and her husband reconciling to teach their son how to talk to the police, and Kepner questioning her faith. The song is titled "Are You With Me," and at a time when many of the characters are questioning who has their backs, the song is poignant, beautiful, and fitting. Nilu has actually had her cover of The Fray's "How to Save a Life" play in season 11 of Grey's Anatomy, so her voice may sound familiar to fans of the show. She grew up in Dubai and California with her Persian relatives, and she has even played for the Dalai Lama. You may have also

2018 Oscars: Octavia Spencer (‘The Shape of Water’) becomes first black actress with multiple post-win nominations
Octavia Spencer has extra reason to celebrate. Not only did the “Shape of Water” star receive her third Oscar nomination, for Best Supporting Actress, on Tuesday, but she’s now the first black actress to earn multiple nominations after winning.

This year’s nomination also ties her with Viola Davis as the most nominated black actress, with thee each. Davis, of course, won Best Supporting Actress last year for “Fences” and was up in supporting for “Doubt” (2008) and in lead for “The Help” (2011). Whoopi Goldberg is the only other black actress with multiple nominations; she received two for her lead performance in “The Color Purple” (1985) and her winning supporting turn in “Ghost” (1990).

Meryl Streep Breaks Own Record With 21st Oscar Nomination
Meryl Streep has broken her own Oscar record.

The actress received her 21st Academy Award nomination, in the best actress category, for her performance as Katherine Graham in “The Post.”

The nod extends Streep’s record by nine over Katharine Hepburn and Jack Nicholson, who are tied in second place with a dozen each.

Oscars flashback: Heath Ledger’s family accepts on behalf of late ‘Dark Knight’ star [Watch]
Monday, January 22, marks the 10-year anniversary of Heath Ledger’s death. The 28-year-old actor’s bright, burgeoning career was cut short by an accidental prescription drug overdose, just six months before “The Dark Knight” hit theaters.

Ledger, of course, earned raves for his indelible turn as The Joker in the second film of Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy and would dominate the Best Supporting Actor race the whole season, pulling off a clean sweep of the Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice, Screen Actors Guild, BAFTA and Oscar. Coincidentally, he received his Oscar nomination on the one-year anniversary of his death (he died on Oscar nomination day as well). When he won a month later, his parents, Kim Ledger and Sally Bell, and sister Kate Ledger accepted on his behalf before a tearful crowd, who gave a sustained standing ovation.

2018 Oscars: Octavia Spencer (‘The Shape of Water’) could make history for the second year in a row

2018 Oscars: Octavia Spencer (‘The Shape of Water’) could make history for the second year in a row
Last year, Octavia Spencer became the first black actress to get a follow-up Oscar nomination after winning, when she contended for “Hidden Figures” in Best Supporting Actress, the same category she won for “The Help” (2011). Now, the “Shape of Water” star can rewrite the Oscar annals again by becoming the first black actress to earn multiple nominations after winning.

Spencer is currently sitting in the precarious fifth spot in our Best Supporting Actress predictions, with a combined 10/1 odds, behind Laurie Metcalf (“Lady Bird,” 11/5 odds), Allison Janney (“I, Tonya,” 13/5 odds), Holly Hunter (“The Big Sick,” 13/2 odds) and Mary J. Blige (“Mudbound,” 17/2 odds). She suffered a setback when she was snubbed at the Screen Actors Guild Awards — as was the “Shape of Water” cast — but she rebounded with a BAFTA nomination. Coupled with the fact that “The Shape of Water” will likely be the nomination leader, is a top Best Picture contender,
