2018 Emmy slugfest: Why Best Comedy Series is one of the most exciting races in years [Watch]

“Normally, I’m more drawn to the drama categories, but I think comedy is really fun this year,” Charles Bright tells me and our fellow Gold Derby contributors Zach Laws, Tom O’Brien and Amanda Spears in our slugfest about the Emmy nominations in the comedy races (watch above). I add that “I’m a lot more confused after the nominations than I was before. I thought that this would be ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,’ and I guess I still am betting on it, but it could very easily be ‘Atlanta,’ which got more nominations, even if it’s not in as many categories.” And don’t count out “Barry.” It’s “decisively the choice from voters for HBO [and] is starting essentially where it took ‘Veep’ four years to get in nominations.”

Lea Michele Reflects on Cory Monteith's Legacy 5 Years After His Death
Lea Michele is remembering Cory Monteith, five years after his shocking death. In a post to Twitter on Friday, the Glee star shared a heartfelt quote alongside a photo of the ocean, telling her followers, "There are some who bring a light so great to the world, that even after they have gone, the light remains." The actress, who was dating her co-star at the time of his death, continues to pay tribute to the man she once called "the best boyfriend." In 2016, the Scream Queens actress honored him on the anniversary of his passing by sharing a photo of Cory on the beach.

Darren Criss and Jesse Plemons are vying to be the second youngest Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actor Emmy champ

Darren Criss and Jesse Plemons are vying to be the second youngest Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actor Emmy champ
Darren Criss (“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”) and Jesse Plemons (“USS Callister: Black Mirror”) could break the curve in the big way at the Emmys. Both are nominated for Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actor and if either wins, he’d be the second youngest champ in the category.

At 31 and 30, respectively, Criss and Plemons are competing in a category that has long favored middle-aged and older stars. The category’s youngest winner is Anthony Murphy, who was 17 when he prevailed for “Tom Brown’s Schooldays” in 1973, which was also his first and only acting role. That record looks to stand for a long time, considering that no one in their 20s has ever won.

Sandra Oh’s ‘Killing Eve’ Emmy Nod Isn’t the Only Important Asian Nomination to Celebrate

Because of ingrained racism, Sandra Oh didn’t even initially think she was being offered the lead role on BBC America’s “Killing Eve,” but on Thursday, she earned herself an Emmy nomination for it. On the show, the actress plays security operative Eve Polastri, who is hunting down an elusive but flamboyant international assassin.

Oh’s nomination is significant on a number of levels, since she has been overdue for good roles after playing Cristina Yang on “Grey’s Anatomy.” “Killing Eve” has been worth the wait because it showcases her dramatic and comedic talents in equal measure: IndieWire has made no secret that “Killing Eve” is a favorite for its killer performances, dialogue, action, and style. Much credit goes to “Fleabag” creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who was also nominated for writing the first episode of “Killing Eve,” for the show’s unique point of view and tone.

Beyond just a personal victory though,

Dreyfuss — whose new TV project has yet to be announced — will perform her last show at New York's Music Box Theatre this Sunday.

Hey, Nice 'S': Meet Every Actress Who Has Played Supergirl

In the aftermath of the #MeToo movement, Hollywood has taken notice, with much more of an emphasis not only on female filmmakers but female characters —Supergirl, we're talking to you — as well. In the world of superheroes, Marvel has certainly made great strides with the likes of Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow in various Avengers films, Zoe Saldana as Gamorra in Guardians of the Galaxy, Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne, aka Wasp, in Ant-Man and the Wasp; and next year's Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson in the title role. And over at DC, there has been Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, the sequel to which is filming now, and, of course, Supergirl. Supergirl was created in 1959 by writer Otto Binder and artist Al Plastino. Journalist Louis Black, who knew Otto well, comments to us, "One would be hard-pressed to argue that Otto was a feminist, but that having more

2018 Emmy race for Best Comedy Directing: What pilots will be nominated?

2018 Emmy race for Best Comedy Directing: What pilots will be nominated?
The Emmy Awards ballot for Best Comedy Directing lists 195 episodes from 105 series, up from 174 episodes from 82 series last year, when the nominees were:

Atlanta” season 1

Winner — “B.A.N.” (Donald Glover)

Silicon Valley” season 4

“Intellectual Property” (Jamie Babbit)

“Server Error” (Mike Judge)

“Veep” season 6

“Blurb” (Morgan Sackett)

Justice” (Dale Stern)

“Groundbreaking” (David Mandel)

SEEanalysis of the Best Comedy Writing contenders.

“Veep” did not air this season. Lead “Atlanta” director Hiro Murai was snubbed last year; he has a stronger episode this time and more name recognition from directing the music video for Childish Gambino’s “This is America.”

Having been nominated two years ago for “Silicon Valley” when he last directed it, Alec Berg has submitted his work on the first season finale of “Barry.” He also directed this season’s “Silicon Valley” finale, but Best Comedy Directing is one of only six categories that precludes multiple ballot submissions.

Emmys Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor interviews: 15 exclusive chats with Paul Bettany, Peter Sarsgaard and more [Watch]
Who will prevail in the 2018 Emmy race for Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor? Alexander Skarsgard won the prize last year for his role as an abusive husband in “Big Little Lies,” so who will succeed him in 2018? Gold Derby has hosted exclusive video chats with 15 of this year’s candidates, including past nominees and potential Emmy rookies. Follow the links below to be taken to their full interviews.

Paul Bettany (“Manhunt: Unabomber”): Bettany plays Ted Kaczynski, a.k.a. the Unabomber, who terrorized the country with a series of bombings spanning almost two decades. He previously received a BAFTA nomination for Best Supporting Actor for the film “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World” (2003).

Darren Criss (‘Versace’) would be second youngest Best Movie/Mini Actor Emmy winner

Darren Criss (‘Versace’) would be second youngest Best Movie/Mini Actor Emmy winner
Darren Criss barely looks like he’s aged a day since “Glee,” but the “Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” star is 31 years old — definitely not old, but not a whippersnapper either. But if he takes home the Emmy for Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actor, he’d be the second youngest to prevail in the category.

Criss wouldn’t come close to dethroning the youngest winner, Anthony Murphy, who was 17 when he won for “Tom Brown’s Schooldays” in 1973. It was Murphy’s first and only acting role; he’s now a painter. No one has won the category in their 20s. Eleven people have won in their 30s, including reigning champ Riz Ahmed (“The Night Of”), who was 34. Criss would bump down Peter Strauss (“The Jericho Mile”) and Powers Boothe (“Guyana Tragedy: The Story of Jim Jones”), who were both 32 when they won in 1979 and 1980, respectively.

‘Dancing with the Stars’ season 27 poll results: Tony winner John Lloyd Young, ‘N Sync star Jc Chasez should compete

‘Dancing with the Stars’ season 27 poll results: Tony winner John Lloyd Young, ‘N Sync star Jc Chasez should compete
Attention casting directors for “Dancing with the Stars”! The results are in from our recent poll: these are the male celebrities audiences would most like to see in the upcoming 27th season from the suggestions we made.

Broadway actor John Lloyd Young was our readers’ top choice with 38% of the vote. After conquering the Great White Way in 2006 with his Tony Award winning breakout role as Frankie Valli in “Jersey Boys” he brought his skills to the small screen with guest appearances on “Glee” in 2009 and “Vegas” in 2013. Then Young was cast by Clint Eastwood to reprise his Broadway role in the 2014 film adaptation of “Jersey Boys.” Another Tony winner, Marissa Jaret Winokur, almost managed to make it to the finals in the sixth season in 2008 (she finished fourth), we’d love to see what another Broadway star could do in the ballroom.

Jc Chasez came in second with 28%. Two

"Pose" Star Indya Moore Joins Modern Take on "Frankenstein"

Indya Moore is to star in an adaptation of "Frankenstein" that is described as a genderbending retelling of the classic story with a modern twist.

Moore, who plays Angel in Ryan Murphy's new FX drama "Pose," will appear in the series "Magic Hour" and is also credited as executive producer.

On the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s "Frankenstein," the TV series follows a mysterious young woman who wakes up one morning without a soul and roams the streets of Tokyo in search of one.

Moore is one of a record-breaking five trans actors who have taken leading roles in "Pose," set within the ball scene of 1980s New York and co-created by Murphy, the creative force behind "American Horror Story," "Glee," and "Feud." The first season began airing on June 3 and runs until July 22.

Moore previously starred in musical drama 'Saturday Church,' which debuted at Tribeca and picked up several awards at LGBTQ film festivals in 2017.

In "Magic Hour," she stars as Bella alongside a cast that also includes Yuka Taga and Niclas Ericsson.

The series will shoot on location in Tokyo and New York City, with the Japanese portion of the production understood to have wrapped on July 4.

Upcoming Brooklyn-based filmmaker Che Grayson has written and directed 'Magic Hour.'

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Charlotte Ross

Few actors or actresses can go to Hollywood, hit the ground running, and put together a 32 year career that has made them successful and popular. Charlotte Ross, who is 50, has done exactly that. You may have seen her on Glee, in the soap Days of Our Lives, or even in TV commercials and infomercials. She can be seen as a physical actress or romantic interest, but even at 50 she is also known for her modeling various hairstyles. Though she is known for her many talents, there are some things that seem to contradict what you see her

Watch out, Darren Criss (‘Versace’)! The Emmy front-runner could be upset by Benedict Cumberbatch (‘Patrick Melrose’)
Darren Criss has been the Emmy front-runner for Best Movie/Mini Actor since we opened our predictions center in March. He has a showy starring role as real-life serial killer Andrew Cunanan in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” the second installment of Ryan Murphy‘s “American Crime Story” franchise. But later in the spring a challenger emerged who might be Criss’s biggest threat: Benedict Cumberbatch (“Patrick Melrose“).

As we approach the announcement of the Emmy nominations on July 12 Criss has leading odds of 10/3 based on the combined predictions of thousands of Gold Derby users. Among those users are 19 Expert journalists from top media outlets, 12 of whom agree with the consensus that Criss will win: Debra Birnbaum (Variety), Debbie Day (Rotten Tomatoes), Lynn Elber (Associated Press), Chris Harnick (E!), Matthew Jacobs (Huffington Post), Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby), Lynette Rice (Entertainment Weekly), Robert Rorke (New York Post), Matt Roush (TV

‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’ will be Ryan Murphy’s 7th limited series nominated at Emmys in 7 years

‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’ will be Ryan Murphy’s 7th limited series nominated at Emmys in 7 years
If “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” earns an Emmy nomination for Best Limited Series, as Gold Derby’s racetrack odds predict, that would be the seventh consecutive nomination for prolific producer Ryan Murphy in this category. Over the past decade Murphy and his team at FX have completely reinvented TV’s longform format, and that’s no more evident than at the Emmys. Previously these six shows all received Emmy noms for Best Limited Series: “Feud: Bette and Joan” (2017), “The People v. O. J. Simpson” (2016), “American Horror Story: Freak Show” (2015), “American Horror Story: Coven” (2014), “American Horror Story: Asylum” (2013) and “American Horror Story: Murder House” (2012).

Based on Maureen Orth‘s book “Vulgar Favors,” “Versace” follows the story of spree killer Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss) who murdered several men in the 1990s including fashion designer Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramirez). Tom Rob Smith wrote the nine-episode series that also stars Emmy contenders Penelope Cruz,

Jonathan Groff (‘Mindhunter’): Emmy Experts say the Netflix G-Man could track down his first nomination

Jonathan Groff (‘Mindhunter’): Emmy Experts say the Netflix G-Man could track down his first nomination
Jonathan Groff is a two-time Tony nominee for his work on Broadway, and his musical theater work even won him a Grammy. But despite a significant TV resume he has yet to be nominated for an Emmy. Now he’s a contender for Best Drama Actor for Netflix’s psychological thriller “Mindhunter.” It doesn’t hurt that the series is directed and produced by David Fincher, who has directed many nominated performances in film and TV.

Groff stars as Holden Ford, an FBI agent in the 1970s who is fascinated by the psychology of serial killers. It’s a far cry from the actor’s previous roles, like “Glee” villain Jesse St. James and lovelorn “Looking” protagonist Patrick Murray. But it’s a change of pace that could appeal to the television academy, who have nominated other G-Men before him like Kyle MacLachlan in “Twin Peaks” (1990-1991) and David Duchovny
