Claire Foy (‘The Crown’) stops Elisabeth Moss (‘Handmaid’s Tale’) from winning 2nd Emmy for Best Drama Actress
Gold Derby predicted that Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) would easily win her second consecutive Emmy Award for Best Drama Actress, however Claire Foy (“The Crown”) stopped her at the finish line. Of Gold Derby’s 27 Emmy Experts from major media outlets, Foy was the pick of only two, giving her second-place odds of 8/1. Moss led with a whopping 18 Experts predicting her to win, resulting in leading 4/9 odds. Foy is TV’s reigning two-time SAG champ, so it really wasn’t a surprise to see her winning at the Emmys, particularly since she earned extra buzz from leaving Netflix’s regal drama along with the rest of the main stars in a massive re-casting ahead of Season 3.

Emmy episode analysis: Keri Russell (‘The Americans’) contends for final time in ‘The Summit’

Emmy episode analysis: Keri Russell (‘The Americans’) contends for final time in ‘The Summit’
Emmy was slow to recognize the quality of the work in “The Americans,” and that includes the performances of co-stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as undercover Kgb agents Elizabeth and Phillip Jennings who are operating in America. But TV academy voters woke up at last. Russell has received Best Drama Actress nominations for her work in the series’ fourth and fifth seasons and is nominated again this year for the sixth and final season of the FX series. Can she prevail at last?

Russell shrewdly selected “The Summit” as her Emmy episode submission, as Elizabeth is the driving force behind most of the film’s major plot lines. She learns that her activities, deemed suspicious by some in Russia, have been spied on by her partner Philip at the request of a Soviet bigwig. When the attempt to kill Elena doesn’t quite do the job, Elizabeth is then asked to finish her off,

Emmy predictions: Elisabeth Moss (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’) will win Best Drama Actress with no clear runner-up in sight

Emmy predictions: Elisabeth Moss (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’) will win Best Drama Actress with no clear runner-up in sight
After losing a whopping six Emmys for “Mad Men,” TV academy members are poised to make it up to Elisabeth Moss in a big way. She just won Best Drama Actress for “The Handmaid’s Tale” last year, and now she’s on track to claim a bookend trophy, according to Gold Derby’s Emmy predictions. One of the major pluses in Moss’ favor is that there’s no clear runner-up in sight. In fact, you could make a strong case for all of her co-nominees, which likely will cause a split vote for second place and help Moss claim victory again.

Of Gold Derby’s 26 Emmy Experts from major media outlets, Moss is predicted to win by 17 of them, resulting in leading 1/2 odds. She plays June/Offred on “The Handmaid’s Tale,” a woman who lives as a concubine for the rich and powerful in a dystopian future. She

Emmy Experts predict Elisabeth Moss will win Best Drama Actress, with Sandra Oh and Keri Russell tied for second place
Twenty-three of Gold Derby’s Emmy Experts from major media outlets have chimed in with their Best Drama Actress predictions, and Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) is the favorite to win her second consecutive Emmy. After losing six times for “Mad Men,” Moss now finds herself on a roll with the TV academy as she took home two trophies last year for acting in and producing “The Handmaid’s Tale.” While she’s the favorite with 15 Experts picking her to win, two other leading ladies have the support of 4 Experts apiece: Sandra Oh (“Killing Eve”) and Keri Russell (“The Americans”). Talk about a nail-biter! Who do You think will win?

Between two conversations, The Americans do battle and seek absolution

The Summit” is driven by moments of incredible tension, but somewhat uniquely for The Americans, those moments center on things that don’t happen. Philip can’t reach Henry, he can’t enter Stavos’s home, he can’t make himself feel better. Elizabeth doesn’t get a listening device in Glenn’s briefcase, she doesn’t stop…

‘The Americans’ Review: Smoking Kills and the Truth Comes Out in a Game-Changing Episode 8 — Spoilers

‘The Americans’ Review: Smoking Kills and the Truth Comes Out in a Game-Changing Episode 8 — Spoilers
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “The Americans” Season 6, Episode 8, “The Summit.”]

Much of what happens in “The Summit” can be summed up in a few simple sentences: Philip tells Elizabeth he’s been spying on her. Elizabeth finally says no to a mission, effectively switching sides in the internal Soviet conflict. Stan is more convinced than ever his neighbors are Russian operatives.

But details matter, as they always do on “The Americans,” and one telling mistake seems to be the damning one for Elizabeth: smoking. People notice that she smokes a lot, and even though she’s covered her ass in every other way imaginable (ways which would’ve seemed unimaginable — all those wigs — before they were depicted in this series), that vague identifier could be enough to be her downfall.

With two episodes left before the series says dosvedanya, IndieWire is taking a look at where things stand at the present moment, but also

Six seasons in, The Americans‘ resident hard-liner Elizabeth Jennings is finally starting to have doubts about her homeland. But is it too late to stop now?

She explodes on Philip when he confesses that he’s been reporting back to Oleg about her missions for several months now. (The general she met in Mexico, he explains, is part of the anti-Gorbachev faction Oleg warned Philip about.) She tells her husband to “go to hell,” and bristles when he says, “I was trying to get you to be a human being about this…

Sebastian Lelio’s ‘A Fantastic Woman’ Sweeps 5th Platino Awards

Sebastian Lelio’s ‘A Fantastic Woman’ Sweeps 5th Platino Awards
Riviera Maya, Mexico — As widely predicted, Sebastian Lelio’s “A Fantastic Woman” swept the 5th Platino Ibero-American Film Awards Sunday, held at the Xcaret Riviera Maya resort in Mexico.

This is the second time Lelio has snagged the best picture Platino Award. His poignant drama about a divorcee, “Gloria,” won at the inaugural edition of the four-year old annual event.

The Platino Awards sweep is another feather in the cap for Lelio who took home the foreign language Oscar for Chile this year for “A Fantastic Woman.”

“Those of us who make movies play with perception and reality; those who watch our films are responsible for making sense of it,” said Lelio upon receiving his best director prize.

In industry terms, Spain was a producer or very often co-producer of virtually all the winning projects, both TV and film.

Cannes 2017: who's in the running?

Screen investigates which films from around the world could launch on the Croisette, including on opening night.

With just over a month to go before the line-up for this year’s Cannes Film Festival is unveiled in Paris, Croisette predictions and wish lists are hitting the web thick and fast.

Screen’s network of correspondents and contributors around the world have been putting out feelers to get a sense of what might or might not make it to the Palais du Cinéma or one of the parallel sections.

Just like the Oscars, this year’s festival is likely to unfold amid a politically-charged atmosphere. Beyond Trump and the rise of populism across the globe, France will be digesting the result of its own presidential election on May 7. Against this background, the festival will be feting its 70th edition.

Below, Screen reveals which titles might - and might not - be in the running for a place at the
