‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ will have to overcome the Emmys’ one-hour bias in Best Comedy Series

‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ will have to overcome the Emmys’ one-hour bias in Best Comedy Series
Size matters at the Emmys — at least in Best Comedy Series. In 1999, “Ally McBeal” became the first hour-long show to win the award. Unfortunately, it was never nominated again and no one-hour comedy has joined its ranks since. Will “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” end this long drought or will its atypical runtime (for a comedy) hurt it?

“Mrs. Maisel” is neck-and-neck with “Atlanta” for the honor in our odds, with our 20 Experts split evenly between them. It nearly ran the table earlier this year with victories at the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice and the Producers Guild Awards, though it did not compete with “Atlanta” at any of them.

Those are great feathers in its cap, but the Emmys are a different beast. Four hour-long shows have been nominated for Best Comedy Series since “Ally McBeal”‘s win: “Desperate Housewives” (2005), “Ugly Betty” (2007), “Glee” and “Orange Is the New Black” (2014). Is it

Emmy Predictions: A ‘Legend’ Goes For Egot Status Thanks To Jesus, But Is That Enough To Stop Cumberbatch In Limited Series/Movie Actor Race?

Deadline Awards Columnist and Chief Film Critic Pete Hammond gives his take on the top acting contenders for the 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards. Here, he breaks down the categories of Outstanding Lead and Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie.

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie

With a win here, one of the six nominees for Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie has a chance to complete an Egot, two others could add to their previous Emmy wins, while the other three are simply looking for their first. Among the contenders, three are playing real-life people as distinctly varied as a serial killer, a legendary artist, and a rock-singing Jesus Christ. The competition is so fierce this year that even Al Pacino failed to make the list. Here’s the handicap…

How ‘The Assassination Of Gianni Versace’ Still Resonates Today: Ryan Murphy, EPs & Cast At Deadline’s Emmy Fyc Event

How ‘The Assassination Of Gianni Versace’ Still Resonates Today: Ryan Murphy, EPs & Cast At Deadline’s Emmy Fyc Event
Cathartic.

That’s the best word that Ryan Murphy, his creative team and cast had to describe their labor of love, the 18-Emmy nominated The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

While the Lgbt community was making strides against social adversity during the ’90s, the murder of Italian fashion designer Versace left a hole; not just in the downfall of a beloved icon, but in the fact that his killing, as Murphy has mentioned previously, was at the hands of someone, that being Andrew Cunanan, “who specifically went out of his way to shame and out people…He was having a form of payback for a life he could not live.” Meanwhile, institutionalized homophobia by the Feds and local police are to blame as to why Cunanan wasn’t stopped sooner in his killing spree.

‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’: How Darren Criss Stayed Sane While Playing Serial Killer Andrew Cunanan
Darren Criss wasn’t nervous at all to move on from “Glee” to the darker role of serial killer Andrew Cunanan in FX’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”

At least, that’s what he told uber-producer Ryan Murphy during a For Your Consideration event at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. “I’d been waiting and working for this moment my entire life…You really are just waiting for someone to pass you the ball,” Criss told Murphy.

It wasn’t just Criss who’d taken the ball and scored — the acclaimed FX series dramatizing the murder of the iconic fashion designer Versace at Cunanan’s hands and the harrowing path that led there scored 18 total Emmy nods in the limited series or movie category, and several of the show’s nominees were on hand for a panel discussion led by Murphy, himself nominated for outstanding directing.

How ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’ Influenced Darren Criss’ Fashion Sense
A friend of Andrew Cunanan, whom Emmy nominee Darren Criss portrays in FX’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” described the late serial killer as the kind of kid who’d put dimes in penny loafers. “I was this kid,” says Criss, who doesn’t assert his status through clothing as Cunanan did, but prefers to keep his wardrobe “slightly left of center.” “I understand what it’s like to try and be a little different.”

2015

Criss received his first Emmy nom for original song “This Time,” written for the “Glee” finale. Criss’ longtime stylist Ashley Weston collaborated with Brooks Bros. on this custom black and navy tux. “We kept it classic,” notes Criss, who’d just finished starring in Broadway’s “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.” “Being in a suit with longer hair certainly was different from Hedwig, different from [‘Glee’ character] Blaine, so it reminds

Jane Lynch To Reprise Emmy-Nominated Role On ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’
Jane Lynch is returning to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. She is set to reprise her guest-starring role of Sophie Lennon in two episodes of the praised Amazon comedy series’ upcoming second season.

Mrs. Maisel scored a total of 14 Emmy noms for its first season last month, including best comedy series, lead comedy actress Brosnahan, supporting actress Alex Borstein, supporting actor Tony Shalhoub and guest comedy actress Lynch.

Does ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?

  • The Wrap
(Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you don’t want to know spoilers for “Crazy Rich Asians.”)

“Crazy Rich Asians,” director John M. Chu’s rom-com adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s best-selling novel, may not seem like the sort of movie that would demand a Marvel-style post-credits scene.

But the book is the first installment in a trilogy about sweethearts Nick Young (Henry Golding) and Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) and their families and hangers-on.

And there’s in fact good reason to stick around after Nick and Rachel celebrate their engagement on the glorious rooftop of the Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore at the very end of the movie.

The credits roll, but there’s a bonus scene still to come.

Tom O’Neil on new, stricter monitoring of Emmy voters: ‘It’s magnificently cruel!’

As TV academy members pick Emmy winners this week and next, there’s a harsh change in the process. Now voters must really, really promise that they’ve viewed at least one episode of each nominee in a category before completing their ballot.

Last year voters had to make the same pledge, but it wasn’t extracted at the end of the academy’s cynical finger pointed fiercely between the voter’s eyes. On the 2017 ballot, a warning reminded voters that they promised to watch a sample of each nominee’s work in a category before crowning their champs. Voters even had to check off a box before proceeding, but once you cleared security at the door, you were allowed to enter the main ballot area and start pulling levers, wreaking havoc.

This year, however, there’s a big, scary security goon lurking around every corner to extract your sacred

Primetime Emmy Awards: Every host from the 21st Century, including Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert

  • Gold Derby
Hosts for the annual Emmy Awards ceremonies throughout the 21st Century have almost always been comedians. For the most part, they bring just the right tone of roasting the nominees and celebrating the previous TV season. With a four-way rotation of ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC, the host selection also typically comes from that network’s stable of talent.

For the 2018 event, “Saturday Night Live” stars and “Weekend Update” anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che will host the 70th annual ceremony for NBC. It marks the first time a duo has presided over the ceremony since Jenna Elfman and David Hyde Pierce in 1999. That was last century! How will Jost and Che stack up against this century’s emcees? Let’s take a tour of the past 18 years in our photo gallery above of all the hosts, good and bad.

Best Movie/Mini Actor: Rob Licuria, Chris Beachum debate who wins 2018 Emmy [Watch]

“I think it’s three and three,” Gold Derby managing editor Chris Beachum proclaims about the Emmy for Best Movie/Mini Lead Actor. “Three people have a really strong shot and I could debate which one it is, and the other three I don’t think have much of a chance. Not that they can’t do it as there’s always surprises,” Beachum says about his three frontrunners Darren Criss, Benedict Cumberbatch and Antonio Banderas. Beachum recently teamed up with senior editor Rob Licuria, the original Gold Derby duo, in a series of slugfests this week about all six lead acting races at the Emmys.

Ryan Murphy (‘Assassination of Gianni Versace’) could finally win 2nd Emmy for directing, 8 years after ‘Glee’ pilot

Ryan Murphy (‘Assassination of Gianni Versace’) could finally win 2nd Emmy for directing, 8 years after ‘Glee’ pilot
Ryan Murphy has now been nominated a total of 28 times at the Emmys and has taken home four trophies. However, the only individual Emmy he has won so far was for directing the “Glee” pilot back in 2010. Will he now take home his second individual Emmy eight years later for directing the first episode of “The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” titled “The Man Who Would Be Vogue”?

Currently, Gold Derby’s racetrack odds have Murphy in the lead to win Best Movie/Mini Directing, ahead of David Lynch (“Twin Peaks”), Scott Frank (“Godless”), David Leveaux and Alex Rudzinski (“Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert”), Edward Berger (“Patrick Melrose”), Craig Zisk (“The Looming Tower”) and Barry Levinson (“Paterno”).

Darren Criss is the likeliest Ryan Murphy star to win an Emmy, readers proclaim
Ryan Murphy garnered eight Emmy nominations for the stars of his anthology series “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” and “American Horror Story: Cult.” Not all of them will win, especially since many of them are against each other, but Murphy is likeliest to be thanked by Darren Criss, according to 66 percent of our readers.

This result is hardly a surprise since the “Versace” star has been leading our Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actor odds all season for his unnerving performance as serial killer Andrew Cunanan. A previous nominee for songwriting on another Murphy show, “Glee,” Criss, 31, would have to overcome age bias to become the second youngest winner in the category.

Will Ryan Murphy (‘Versace’) win his first individual Emmy since 2010?
Ryan Murphy has won four Emmys, but only one of them has been a solo victory. That was his very first win in 2010, for directing the “Glee” pilot. Could he finally take home a second one all by himself this year for directing “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”?

Since Murphy’s “Glee” victory, his other three wins were shared with his fellow producers on “The Normal Heart”, “Inside Look: The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” and “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”.

But he hasn’t been able to convert any of his subsequent individual nominations into wins: directing for “The Normal Heart” (2014), directing for “American Horror Story: Freak Show” (2015), directing for “O.J.” (2016), and directing and writing for “Feud: Bette and Joan” (2017). He also lost his very first Emmy bid: directing for “Nip/Tuck” in 2004.

Last Man Standing Adds Molly McCook and Jet Jurgensmeyer in Recasting

Last Man Standing is being revived at Fox over a year after its ABC cancellation, but two characters will have brand new faces.

The sitcom is adding Molly McCook and Jet Jurgensmeyer to the cast of Last Man Standing Season 7.

McCook will play the role of Mandy. Molly Ephraim played the character when the show was on ABC, but Ephraim decided against returning when the show was revived.

Jurgensmeyer is taking over from Flynn Morrison in the role of Boyd. While Ephraim's departure was a decision from the actress, it sounds like Morrison's was down to producers wanting the character of Boyd to be older.

McCook has a TV resume that includes The Ranch, Modern Family, Glee, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Good Trouble, the spinoff of The Fosters.
