This marks the first time Netflix has topped the rankings for most Emmy wins after taking third place in 2016 and rising to No.2 last year. The achievement also follows an upset at the nominations stage where Netflix topped longtime leader HBO for the first time.

The story of “Sharp Objects” is a complex and sad tale about a reporter going back to her hometown to chase the story of two murdered girls and face her own demons. Amy Adams took on her first major role on the small screen portraying reporter Camille Preacher. Adams plays the character both tragically and brilliantly. As the story goes, Camille Preacher returns to Wind Gap, Missouri to her family home where she starts having flashbacks of her dead sister who passed away when she was younger. The Preacher family

The novel, by Ann Patchett, became a best-seller not long after it was published in 2001. It tells the harrowing tale of an opera star and others of different nationalities being held hostage in a mansion in an unnamed South American country. Even (or perhaps especially) after 9/11, people continued to read this tale of terrorism. What is rather amazing is that it has taken over 16 years to be adapted to the screen.
Not that someone wasn’t trying throughout those years. When producer Caroline Baron read the novel, she instinctively believed she was the one to turn it into a movie. She had produced

Widows review [Tiff]
Featuring an ensemble cast, the film is potentially the filmmaker’s most accessible, but it’s best to enter with caution, knowing as little as possible about the plot – so I will tread carefully.
Co-scripted by McQueen and Gone Girl/ Sharp Objects scribe Gillian Flynn, and based on the book by Lynda La Plante, the film begins during the aftermath of a robbery – one that has seemingly gone horribly wrong. McQueen intercuts the action with a backstory involving the film’s three primary male protagonists; Jon Bernthal’s Florek,
The quartet were among the high-profile name announced Monday in the first wave of keynote and featured speakers for the 2019 conference, running concurrently with the SXSW Film Festival on March 8-17 in Austin, Texas.
Keynotes announced include Instagram CEO Systrom, interviewed by TechCrunch editor-at-large Josh Constine, and a keynote conversation between Shirley Manson, lead vocalist of the rock band Garbage, singer-songwriter Lauren Mayberry of the Scottish electronic pop band Chvrches, and writer, producer, and director Marti Noxon.
Among the featured speakers revealed are Jason Blum in conversation with John Pierson; writer and 2017 Time Person of the Year Susan Fowler; architect Bjarke Ingels; artist and musician Amanda Palmer; co-founder of Upworthy and Fellow at the New America Foundation Eli Pariser; New York Times bestselling author Michael Pollan; media theorist
Organizers of the Austin-based technology, music and film confab, announced Monday morning that it has named Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom and Dietland showrunner Marti Noxon as some of the first keynote speakers for its 2019 event.
Noxon, who will speak as part of the SXSW Film conference, has spent years in the television industry, overseeing such projects as HBO's Sharp Objects and Bravo's Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce. She is also the co-creator of Lifetime's UnREAL and worked on Mad Men and Buffy the ...
On paper, it might seem an unexpected follow-up to the Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave, but from that aforementioned theme of survival to its searing indictment of decaying power structures, Widows is a logical next step for McQueen. Co-written with Gillian Flynn (on a wicked run following successes like Gone Girl and Sharp Objects), McQueen transplanted the U.K. original to Chicago, a city known for its politics, its crime, and its aesthetic beauty–all three are on display in Widows.

Set in the 17th century, “The Miniaturist” follows Petronella “Nella” Oortman (“The Witch” and “Split” star Anya Taylor-Joy), a wide-eyed 18-year-old from Assendelft, who has traveled to Amsterdam to join the household of her new husband, Johannes Brandt (Alex Hassell). On the surface, it appears to be the usual sort of marriage contract: She and her family benefit from his wealth and status, while he receives a youthful bride to help continue the Brandt line and look pretty while doing it. The latter, in fact, appears to be
The “Sharp Objects” finale was a corker, making inventive use of its final moments — and even the end credits — to reveal who really killed those girls in Wind Gap. Patricia Clarkson, whose Adora ultimately goes to prison for the murders despite not committing them, has revealed how she would have liked her character to be sent off in that instant-classic end-credits sequence: “I would’ve had [Adora] dancing in her jail cell,” she tells Entertainment Weekly. “That would’ve been my end-credit [scene].”
Clarkson is in Toronto with her new film “Out of Blue.” Speaking of going from one project to the other, she calls it “the most radical chance I had to make — internally externally, emotionally, physically. I had five articles of clothing [for Mike] and Adora I had four closetfuls [laughs]. I had trousers and a shirt and a jacket, and hair and makeup that was so simple. The beauty of
This week’s question: Predict the new hit fall show. Define “hit” however you would like, but the show should premiere sometime between now and the end of the year.
Daniel Fienberg (@TheFienPrint), The Hollywood Reporter
Now, more than ever, America is hungering for the wisdom of “Murphy Brown”!!!! Actually the hit of the fall is going to be the first episode of “The Conners” where everybody tunes in to see how they handle the vicious slaughter of Roseanne Conner, followed promptly by a 70 percent drop the following week and nobody ever discussing “The Conners” again. I’d say the same about the premiere of the Robin Wright-centric “House of Cards,” but Netflix doesn’t give ratings, so I’m not sure what the point in speculating would be. In conclusion, I think

But right now, according to nine Gold Derby Experts, she could be gold-bound for another reason. Adams is the early frontrunner to claim an supporting Oscar for her characterization of Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick (Christian Bale), in Adam McKay’s “Backseat.” Presumably, this portrait of George W. Bush’s powerful second-in-command might mingle the humorous with the serious, much as McKay did with his snappy take on the financial crisis, 2015’s “The Big Short.”
“Backseat” will most likely be kept under wraps until it opens in December. That four Experts have picked Adams to triumph might have something to do with early photos

The third film from directors Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani is, like their previous works “Amer” and “The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears,” a reinvigoration of cult European filmmaking. The so-called “Eurosleaze” works of sensuality and violence that are sometimes celebrated, and sometimes rudely dismissed. The filmmakers seem to find within these allegedly outdated genres a fantastic inspiration, and they use iconic color timing, bold camera angles, and vibrant music to get away with telling stories so shocking, they probably wouldn’t be acceptable otherwise.
“Let the Corpses Tan” is a brusque about-face from their first two Giallo-inspired killer thrillers. It’s a dense shootout of a movie, incorporating elements of the spaghetti western, the ultraviolent grindhouse, and a surreal rumination on art itself.
