Emmy spotlight: Tobias Menzies deserves a farewell nomination for ‘Outlander’ before donning ‘The Crown’

Emmy spotlight: Tobias Menzies deserves a farewell nomination for ‘Outlander’ before donning ‘The Crown’
Tobias Menzies deserves a goodbye Emmy nomination for Best Drama Guest Actor for his last season of “Outlander.” Last fall Menzies ended his three-year run in the time-travel romance, in which he played dual roles as 18th century antagonist Black Jack and his 20th century descendant Frank Randall, the first husband of Claire (Caitriona Balfe). And the timing for Menzies could be just right since it was recently announced that he will be taking over the role of Prince Philip on “The Crown” from Matt Smith in its upcoming third season.

If you’re not familiar with Menzies by name you probably recognize his face as the character actor has worked in a number of award-winning shows. He’s appeared in the dramas “Rome” and “Game of Thrones” as well as longform programs “Black Mirror,” “The Honorable Woman” and “The Night Manager.” Menzies can also bring the funny as he

Emma Thompson Co-Writing and Directing “Nanny McPhee” Stage Musical

Thompson in “Nanny McPhee”

Emma Thompson is stepping into the director’s chair. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the Oscar winner will helm and co-write a stage musical adaptation of 2005’s “Nanny McPhee.” The family film, which Thompson wrote and toplined, follows the Brown siblings, mischievous children whose behavior slowly improves with the help of a magical nanny.

Thompson will write the musical’s book and lyrics with singer-songwriter Gary Clark, but is not expected to reprise the role of Nanny McPhee. The production has already had a workshop, with a second planned for later in 2018. No official premiere date for “Nanny McPhee” has been announced yet, but we’ll most likely have to wait at least a year for its West End debut.

This is not Thompson’s first foray into theater: she’s acted in “Short Vehicle,” “Me and My Girl,” “King Lear,” and “Sweeney Todd.” She penned “Short Vehicle” as well.

Will Starz’s ‘Howards End’ limited series repeat awards success of the 1992 movie that won 3 Oscars?

Starz’s new limited series adaptation of “Howards End” is positioning itself to do very well at the 2018 Emmys, much like the 1992 film of the same name. The movie “Howards End” won three Oscars and was also nominated for Best Picture. The limited series has rave reviews and could easily rack up multiple nominations at this year’s Emmys.

Based on the novel “Howards End” by E.M. Forster, the limited series tells the story of Margaret of the bourgeoisie Schlegel family, who is bequeathed the titular country home by Ruth, an aging member of the wealthy Wilcox family, which causes an uproar between the families. Hayley Atwell is cast as Thompson’s Oscar-winning role of Margaret, while Julia Ormond plays Ruth, for which Vanessa Redgrave was nominated for an Oscar.

'Howards End': How a 1910 Novel Became a Progressive Miniseries

When the first film adaptation of Howards End was released in 1992, some critics snubbed their noses. Though E.M. Forster's 1910 novel advocates for the intermingling of classes and exposes the social and cultural blindspots of wealthy and poor alike, there was a glut of period pieces at the time — several produced by Howards End's producers, Merchant-Ivory Productions — that had inspired a minor cultural backlash. Critics of the wave of period dramas dismissed the films as "heritage cinema" of an imagined aristocratic English history that glossed over the gritty realities of the working classes.

The reaction...

Hayley Atwell (‘Howards End’) says the relationships between women are ‘the beating heart of the whole piece’ [Exclusive Video Interview]

The Starz limited series “Howards End” is ostensibly a romance between headstrong Margaret Schlegel (Hayley Atwell) and the wealthy but emotionally repressed Henry Wilcox (Matthew Macfadyen), but Atwell thinks the bonds between the women are “the most important relationships in the story.” Margaret has deep affection for her sister Helen as well as a “platonic yet strange love affair” with Henry’s first wife Ruth (Julia Ormond), and those emotional connections are “the beating heart of the whole piece.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Atwell above.

Howards End” is based on the 1910 novel by E.M. Forster, which was previously adapted into a famous 1992 Merchant Ivory film that won Emma Thompson the Best Actress Oscar for playing Margaret. Atwell had seen the film, but she didn’t re-watch it before putting her own spin on the role. “I know Em and spoke to her about it, and she was adamant

Howards End: Season One Ratings

Starz carries a small but varied slate of original, scripted TV series. From contemporary crime dramas like Power, to time traveling sagas such as Outlander and the glorified gore that is Ash Vs Evil Dead, there seems to be something for everything. Enter the new Howards End, a TV show adaptation of Em Forster's classic novel. Even if this latest take on a turn-of-the-20th-Century masterpiece proves competitive in the Nielsen ratings game, will it matter, or is this "limited" series but a mini-series, regardless? Will Howards End be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. A Starz Edwardian period drama, Howards End stars Hayley Atwell, Philippa Coulthard, Alex Lawther, Tracey Ullman, Julia Ormond, Matthew Macfadyen, Joseph Quinn, Rosalind Eleazar, Joe Bannister, Bessie Carter, and Jonah Hauer-King.

‘Agent Carter’s’ Hayley Atwell Describes Experience Acting On American Network TV “Frustrating”

Hayley Atwell jumped at the opportunity to work on the miniseries “Howards End.” Written by “Manchester by the Sea’s” Kenneth Lonergan, “Howards End” is about as far away from Atwell’s previous roles as Peggy Carter in the Marvel TV series “Agent Carter” and as a lawyer in the courtroom drama “Conviction.” And judging by the comments Atwell has made about her time on those series, we now know why the actress hasn’t been interested in returning to TV until now.

‘Howards End’ reviews: Will it go from Oscars to Emmys thanks to ‘delightful,’ ‘sumptuous’ limited series on Starz?
E.M. Forster‘s classic 1910 novel “Howards End” was most famously adapted into a 1992 Merchant Ivory film starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson. It earned nine Oscar nominations including Best Picture and Best Director (James Ivory), and it won three including Best Actress for Thompson. That’s a tough act to follow, but now, 26 years after that film, Forster’s novel has now been adapted into a four-part limited series on Starz that is garnering its own rave reviews. It’s rated 89% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and has scored 89 on MetaCritic, indicating near-universal acclaim. So now it has the potential to be as big a hit at the Emmys as the film was at the Oscars.

The series stars Hayley Atwell in the role that won Thompson the Oscar. She plays Margaret Schlegel, who seeks love and purpose in turn-of-the-century England. It’s directed by Hettie Macdonald, a BAFTA TV Award

Neil Gaiman and Akiva Goldsman to adapt Gormenghast for the small screen

Deadline is reporting that Fremantle North America has tapped Neil Gaiman (American Gods) and Akiva Goldsman (Star Trek: Discovery) to develop a TV adaptation of British author Mervyn Peake’s Gormenghast book series.

“There is nothing in literature like Mervyn Peake’s remarkable Gormenghast novels,” said Gaiman. “They were crafted by a master, who was also an artist, and they take us to an ancient castle as big as a city, with heroes and villains and people larger than life that are impossible to forget. There is a reason why there were two trilogies that lovers of the fantasy genre embraced in the Sixties: Lord of the Rings, and the Gormenghast books. It’s an honor to have been given the opportunity to help shepherd Peake’s brilliant and singular vision to the screen.”

“Nothing combines a dark atmosphere with humor and intrigue the way that Gormenghast does. It’s

TV Review: ‘Howards End’ on Starz

If there were no Merchant Ivory film, Starz’s “Howards End” would be a more welcome adaptation. The four-part miniseries, an adaptation of E.M. Forster’s 1910 novel about class collision and national identity in turn-of-the-century England, is impeccably cast and studiously performed. But the bones of the production, adapted by prominent playwright Kenneth Lonergan and directed by Hettie Macdonald, lacks the impeccable grace and subtlety of both the earlier adaptation and the source material. Lonergan’s screenplay is so disinterested in logistics that it just skips them; especially towards the end of the four-parter, “Howards End” lets weeks, months, or

‘Howards End’ Review: Kenneth Lonergan’s Gorgeous Starz Adaptation Is Filled With Bold Performances and Plenty of Fun

‘Howards End’ Review: Kenneth Lonergan’s Gorgeous Starz Adaptation Is Filled With Bold Performances and Plenty of Fun
For fans of costume dramas, “Howards End” is like a quick hit of “Downton Abbey” cut with the cinematic beauty of any Keira Knightley flick. For everyone else, it’s even better.

The first thing you’ll notice about Kenneth Lonergan’s superb adaptation is its speed — which is an odd and exciting quality for a four-hour British period drama that begins with, ends on, and is titled after an old house. The focus may be a stationary locale, but the pace is aptly quick. Before you can you stop to think “Why do we need another adaptation of ‘Howards End’?”, 15 minutes have flown by and you’re already enraptured by the Wilcox and Schlegel families.

Credit goes to all the elements that make similar genre fare stand out — the costumes, performances, telling glances, and detailed sets — but what makes this Starz limited series feel all its own is a conscious dismissal of certain civilities.
