The Crown Season 3: First Look at Olivia Colman as The Queen

Were you worried things might change with the cast of The Crown Season 3?

Fear no more, as Netflix has released the first image of new star Olivia Colman as The Queen.

She looks very regal drinking a cup of tea. Is it really that easy? Keep reading to see the photo.

If The Crown were strictly a United States production, we would probably be subjected to an aging process via prosthetics and makeup, but as this is a worldwide production, we're having things done a little differently.

The entire cast will be turned over when The Crown Season 3 returns.

While Claire Foy and Matt Smith were first playing The Queen and Prince Philip, moving forward we'll be treated to Olivia Colman and Tobias Menzies as the royal couple.

Netflix’s The Crown has, since its inception, deemed itself a royal joy of a series. Whilst again, grabbing itself 13 Emmy nominations last week, the series looks certain to go from strength to strength.

Can David Lynch (‘Twin Peaks’) still win Emmys for writing and directing despite the snub for Best Limited Series?

Can David Lynch (‘Twin Peaks’) still win Emmys for writing and directing despite the snub for Best Limited Series?
When the Emmy nominations were announced on Thursday morning, July 12, it looked like it might have been a complete shut out for “Twin Peaks.” The Showtime revival was snubbed for Best Limited Series and Kyle MacLachlan was also missing from Best Movie/Mini Actor. But when the entire list was released it turned out the show had done pretty well for itself in behind-the-scenes categories. It picked up nine total bids including Best Movie/Mini Directing for David Lynch and Best Movie/Mini Writing for Lynch and Mark Frost. Could the show still win those categories despite its snub in top categories? Yes, because “The Hour” is at hand.

BBC and AMC set writers room for The Night Manager season 2

Back in March of last year it was announced that the BBC and AMC were in development on a second season of the John Le Carre adaptation The Night Manager, and now Deadline is reporting that a writers room has been set.

Joining the previously announced Matthew Orton (Operate Finale) are Namsi Khan (Black Mirror), Francesca Gardiner (The Man in the High Castle) and spy author Charles Cumming (The Man Between).

According to the site, all four are now hard at work on plots for the second season, which will tell an original tale given that Le Carre never wrote a sequel to his novel. As yet, there’s been no word on returning cast members, although Tom Hiddleston has said that he would be open to returning as Jonathan Pine for a second outing.

Are we underestimating ‘The Terror’ at 2018 Emmys? It could become AMC’s third limited series nominee

Is AMC’s limited series “The Terror,” based on Dan Simmons‘ best-selling novel about a lost expedition to the Arctic in the 1840s, being underestimated by our Emmy Experts? As of this writing only one pundit — Ben Travers (Indiewire) — predicts that the haunting program will become the cable network’s third Best Limited Series Emmy nominee after “The Night Manager” (2016) and “Broken Trail” (2007). But don’t forget, the Emmys have a love affair with AMC shows.

Sandra Bullock on Harvey Weinstein: ‘I Was Afraid of Him’

Sandra Bullock on Harvey Weinstein: ‘I Was Afraid of Him’
Unlike her peers Salma Hayek, Angelina Jolie, and Gwyneth Paltrow, Sandra Bullock says she never received an unwanted advance from Harvey Weinstein. However, those actresses made a combined 10 films for the ex-studio chairman, who last month was arraigned on rape charges in Manhattan Criminal Court. Bullock told London’s Sunday Times that she had no opportunities to collaborate with Weinstein, and she liked it that way.

“I heard about Harvey and I was afraid of him,” she said. “I wasn’t asked to be in that world. I learned early on to shut things off so those things didn’t come my way.”
