HBO & Netflix In Historic Emmy Tie After ‘Game Of Thrones’ Win, Amazon Has Big Night With ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’

Updated: In a nail-biting race between HBO and Netflix through 118 Emmy categories, it came down to the final one. When Game of Thrones was announced as best drama series, it gave HBO the win it needed to tie Netflix for most Emmys this year. Each network nabbed 23 statuettes overall in the three Primetime Emmy ceremonies. During the main telecast tonight, Netflix edged HBO with seven-to-six victories.

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.

“We are honored to share this night with our friends at HBO, who have paved the way for years by setting the highest possible standard,” Netflix’s VP Original Series Cindy Holland said.

Sharp Objects Review: Sharp but Not Enough

I wanted to wait a few days before I wrote a review to the HBO eight episode run of “Sharp Objects”. The reason I wanted to wait is because I found the series angered me and let me down, and I wanted to give it a few days to see if my anger and disappointment went away. It did not.

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

‘Bel Canto': Inside the Beloved Novel’s Long Path to the Big Screen (Guest Blog)
There are numerous ways to get a book to screen: by gut instinct, by pre-emptive calculation, by sheer luck. But the best ones may be those done the right way for the right reason, out of pure passion. Case in point: “Bel Canto,” which hits theaters today.

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

Tiff 2018: ‘Widows’ Review: Dir. Steve McQueen (2018)

Widows review: In his previous three films, Steve McQueen has covered a variety of subject; the true story of Bobby Sands in his jaw-dropping debut Hunger; addiction in his stunning sophomore effort Shame, and then slavery in his Oscar-winning drama 12 Years A Slave. In his fourth film, he switches gear again, turning to the crime genre for a thrilling heist drama, Widows.

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,

Tiff Review: ‘Widows’ is a Timely, Tremendously Entertaining Heist Drama

Survival at all costs. That’s the theme–or, more precisely, a theme–of Steve McQueen’s timely, tremendously entertaining Widows. This is precision entertainment, a crackling, pulse-pounding heist movie with a sterling cast, a whip-smart script, and undeniable social resonance, calling to mind heavyweight champs like The French Connection and Heat. It never quite matches those cinema milestones, but make no mistake, Widows is a knockout.

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.

‘The Miniaturist’ Review: PBS’ Dollhouse Drama Is a Haunting and Exquisitely Crafted Surprise

Two weeks after HBO’s Southern gothic thriller “Sharp Objects” revealed its twisted ending, another drama featuring a dollhouse is opening its doors to welcome viewers into a meticulously crafted world. “The Miniaturist,” based on Jessie Burton’s novel of the same name, is PBS’ three-part adaptation that satisfies the “Masterpiece” aesthete’s hunger for beautiful visuals, lavish costuming, and mesmerizing performances.

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

‘Sharp Objects’ Finale: Patricia Clarkson Reveals What She Would Have Added to That Shocking Twist
[Editor’s note: This article contains spoilers for the final episode of “Sharp Objects.”]

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

TV Critics Predict the New Hit Shows of the Fall – IndieWire Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results.

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

After 5 Oscar chances and no wins, Experts predict Amy Adams won’t take a ‘Backseat’ as a supporting contender

After 5 Oscar chances and no wins, Experts predict Amy Adams won’t take a ‘Backseat’ as a supporting contender
Amy Adams is having a bit of moment, what with her openly raw and emotionally damaged journalist who is badgered by demons both present and past in HBO’s just-wrapped miniseries “Sharp Objects”? An Emmy may be lying in wait for her next year.

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

‘Let the Corpses Tan’ Film Review: High Art Meets High Octane in Sumptuous Euro-Sleaze Shootout

  • The Wrap
“Let the Corpses Tan” tells you right away what it’s about. It’s about painting with bullets. And what a beautiful picture it makes.

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.
