Samantha Morton (‘The Walking Dead’): 4 reasons why she could take a bite out of the Emmys
No actor on “The Walking Dead” has ever been nominated at the Emmy Awards — not Andrew Lincoln (Rick), not Melissa McBride (Carol), not Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan), etc. But all of that could change this year if Emmy voters decide to recognize Samantha Morton as Best Drama Supporting Actress. This acclaimed English actress is a two-time Oscar nominee, so she brings a level of prestige and experience to Alpha, the murderous leader of the Whisperers. Below, see my four reasons why Morton could make history for AMC’s nine-year-old zombie apocalypse drama.

How Production Designer Marco Niro Created a Visual Climax for FX’s ‘Legion’

  • Variety
FX’s “Legion” has always drawn inspiration not only from the MarvelX-Men” comics on which it is based, but also from the weirder corners of pop culture. When creator Noah Hawley cast “Downton Abbey” star Dan Stevens as the lead — David Haller, a mutant whose telepathic powers have been misdiagnosed as mental illness — he gave the actor a playlist that included everything from experimental noise music to Pink Floyd. Even more so than Hawley’s “Fargo,” “Legion” has been driven by a visual aesthetic that reflects that range of influences.

As such, the choice of whom to bring aboard as production designer for the show’s third and final season, which premieres June 24, was an important one. Hawley turned to Marco Niro, fresh from the first season of FX’s motorcycle-gang drama “Mayans M.C.

“He’s a man with a passionate soul,” says Hawley. “In the combination of his Italian heritage and Mexican heritage,

Seven Takeaways from Variety’s European TV Summit

  • Variety
At Variety’s first European TV Summit on Thursday, held at London’s Royal Lancaster Hotel, headline speakers Ricky Gervais, the creator of global successes including “The Office” and “Afterlife,” and Sharon Horgan, the force behind hit comedies “Catastrophe” and “Divorce,” shared their insights, alongside a host of industry leaders. Here are some of the takeaways.

Make It Personal

Gervais, who revealed that he has a first-look deal with Netflix, said he bases his shows on personal experience and strives for honesty. “As I get older, I don’t want to try to be bigger or richer or win more awards. I just want to go: Is this the most honest I have ever been? That is what drives me now,” he said. Gareth Neame, executive producer of “Downton Abbey,” said something similar: “You should be making a show for yourself; you have to love it.”

‘Doctor Who’ Emmy breakthrough led by Jodie Whittaker and … Rosa Parks? See what’s on the Emmy ballot

‘Doctor Who’ Emmy breakthrough led by Jodie Whittaker and … Rosa Parks? See what’s on the Emmy ballot
Despite its international popularity, “Doctor Who” hasn’t been much of an awards player since the decades-old sci-fi show was revived in 2005. It did win Best Drama Series at the BAFTAs in 2006 and Best Writer for Steven Moffat in 2008, but it has gotten blanked at the Emmys even though Moffat went on to win two Emmys for “Sherlock” and the erstwhile Doctor Matt Smith later earned a bid for “The Crown.” However, “Doctor Who” had a higher profile than ever this season, with a new cast and creative team and a chance at nine nominations. Scroll down to see the show’s full list of submissions on this year’s ballot.

Emmy spotlight: ‘The Good Fight’ wages satiric war, blazes exciting new path in audacious 3rd Season

Emmy spotlight: ‘The Good Fight’ wages satiric war, blazes exciting new path in audacious 3rd Season
At the start of its first season, CBS All Access’s “The Good Fight” seemed like a smart, if not comfortable, extension of CBS’s original Emmy-winning series “The Good Wife.” Creators Robert King and Michelle King shrewdly elevated the criminally-unrewarded Christine Baranski to the lead role of a show designed to bring the duo’s sharp writing to a cast of new and familiar faces. Now three full seasons into its run, “The Good Fight” has shed any semblance of that initial comfortability, blazing a bold and exciting new path as a legal and political thriller.

While the brilliant second season of “The Good Fight” never pulled its political punches, the third season that just wrapped on May 15 smartly paired the show’s signature, nuanced storylines with experimental and audacious changes to its form. Firing on all cylinders, this season of “The Good Fight” proves beyond a reasonable doubt

‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch,’ Netflix and the Emmys TV Movie Crisis (Column)

  • Variety
As A-list stars and auteurs made their way to TV this decade, “limited series” orders became a way to sign them up without having to lock in full-season commitments. The format has become such a dominant part of modern TV culture that it’s hard to believe that less than a decade ago there were too few miniseries (as the genre was then dubbed) to even mount its own category.

In 2011, the Television Academy merged TV movie and miniseries into one consolidated program field because the number of miniseries entries had dropped below the threshold needed for at least five nominees. Ironically, that same year both PBS’ “Downton Abbey” and FX’s “American Horror Story” premiered — and the success of those shows swiftly became the template for a whole new kind of “limited series” that now dominates the genre.

The impact of “Downton,” a limited series that then became a regular drama,

Long live the queen! Starz’s ‘The Spanish Princess’ is a lavish spectacle for the senses
Emmy voters need to watch, and bow, to “The Spanish Princess.” Half way through its six episode run, the Starz limited series has been ticking all the right boxes. Visually sumptuous sets and costumes? Check. Cinematography and music to die for? Check.
